HOW TO BE COOL

THOMAS W. HODGKINSON    Book Number: 87341    Product format: Paperback

'150 Essential Idols, Ideals And Other Cool S***' is the sub-title of this multi biography of public figures from William Blake (1757-1827) and Coco Chanel (1883-1971), Charlie Parker (1920-55), Nina Simone (1933-2003), Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Madonna, Kate Moss and other cool dudes. Anyone can increase their cool quotient by learning from the masters and methods of the past. Then there are fictional idols like Hamlet, Sherlock Holmes and James Bond, parodies like The Fonz, villains and vampires, accessories like beards, maxims like 'Live fast, die young'; 'Dance like no one's watching', guys who had it but blew it like Ernest Hemingway, drugs and motorbikes, black magic, sky diving and cool movies like Easy Rider. The last part looks at the real deal with characters like Homer, Lao Tzu and Mark Rylance. Magnificent meandering, 256pp in paperback.
