[Book Review] Wordpower by Edward de Bono

Written by Lee Lian Oi (Brotherhood Books volunteer)

This book has been carefully compiled to contain some very impressive words that will help you look more intelligent than you really are at cocktail parties and other such events. There are stories as to the backgrounds behind the words, as well as the extent of the scope in which one can use them.

Copy added in the system is a lovely Penguin paperback in fair condition.
Find the copy from Brotherhood Books HERE.

[V for Volunteer] How are Our Books Priced? – An Insider’s Guide

Written by Lee Lian

As a volunteer at Brotherhood Books, I'd like to ensure you that we go to great lengths to assure that our books are sold at a reasonable price. What must be taken in consideration however, are the many factors that go into allocating this price:

If you find that a book is pricier than expected, it may be because it is a first edition, signed by the authors, or is a hardcover with a jacket in impeccable condition - or sometimes a combination of all.

A cheaper book may be more damaged, an ex library copy, or one of many later reprints of a particular book.

As yet, there is no way of putting this information on the database but we are working on it. So stay tuned for a facelift of our website.

Rest assured that at Brotherhood Books, we do try to make sure you get what you pay for!

Happy reading!
