            Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) was a Russian painter among the first to truly venture into abstract art. He persisted in expressing his internal world of abstraction despite negative criticism from his peers. He veered away from painting that could be viewed as representational to... express his emotions, leading to his unique use of colour and form.

            Veteran fashion journalist Elizabeth Holmes expands her popular Instagram Stories series, So Many Thoughts, into a nuanced look at the style, branding, and positioning of the four most influential contemporary British Royals: Queen Elizabeth II; Diana, Princess of Wales; Catherin...e, Duchess of Cambridge; and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. Today, the fashion choices of Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are frequently headline news. More than just wearing beautiful clothes -- and they are really beautiful -- these women dress with purpose. Their choices of color, silhouettes, and brands send a message about their values, interests, and place within the royal family. But to fully understand what Kate and Meghan are wearing, one must look to two style icons that came before them: Queen Elizabeth II and Diana, Princess of Wales. For nearly seven decades, the Queen has made her wardrobe work for her, settling into a uniform of colorful coats and hats that make her instantly recognizable. Diana unlocked royal fashion's ability to shock and awe, earning a spot on the front page and rejuvenating interest in the crown. Kate introduced a welcome relatability with her accessible choices, unleashing a shopping frenzy in the process. Meghan, a mixed race American and a working actor, brought a new audience and aesthetic, as well as her social media savvy to the mix. With one section devoted to each woman, HRH pairs hundreds of gorgeous photographs with extensive research to paint a vivid portrait of each woman's fashion preferences, messaging, and evolution. The sections on each will be a seamless combination of major moments and notable details, from the choice of each woman's wedding dress designer to the meaning of a single bow tied on a ponytail. But mostly, through these four biographies, a picture emerges of the evolution of the British monarchy over the past century, showing royal fashion is so much more than what meets the eye.

            What is expertise? How do experts become expert? And how can you become one, too? What do lace makers share with pulmonary surgeons? Saville Row tailors with molecular scientists? Jazz musicians with fighter pilots? Seemingly, they have very little in common, other than being eno...rmously skilled experts. But, Professor Kneebone has spent his life looking more carefully, finding the points of connection. Because whilst the outcome is always different, the journey to expertise is the same. In this groundbreaking book, Professor Roger Kneebone, presents his findings and walks us down the path of mastery. Drawing on new science, cutting edge research, and the lived experience of a fascinating and enormously diverse group of people who are exceptional at what they do, Professor Kneebone shows how the experts became experts. And in so doing, shows how to become experts ourselves.
