Tom Butler-Bowden was working as a political adviser in Australia when, at 25, he read Stephen Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Captivated by it and other books in the personal development field, he left his career and went on to write critical introductions to self-development and prosperity classics through the best-selling Capstone Classics series published by Wiley. He then went on to write bestselling 50 Self-Help Classics, the first guide to the personal development literature and a winner of the Benjamin Franklin Award. Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) was an English writer, most widely recognised as the author of Mrs Dalloway (1925) and To the Lighthouse (1927), in which she used the narrative device stream of consciousness to give depth to her characters. She was also a prolific writer of essays, diaries, letters and biographies; and through her powerful feminist writing, she came to be regarded as one of the most important female authors in literary history as a feminist and modernist.
