`...Without faith, There'd be no return, no embrace of light, No knowledge ever of what is real...' Divine Comedies is a collection of intense lyrical poems on the themes of Dante's masterpiece: The Divine Comedy. In this collection, James Sale combines the lyricism and spirituality of his collections Inside the Whale and The Lyre Speaks True with the darker narratives of hell and psychological suffering. Meditative, concentrated, and transformative, his poetry engages in a modern way with the ancient concept of life-after-death and explores what this might mean in our increasingly secular world.
James Sale's most significant collection of poetry to date in a writing career spanning 50 years. More well known as a manage-ment consultant than as a poet, yet quietly and determinedly over that period, he has consistently followed the Muse and developed his poetry from tuning in to her voice.
Ever wondered what motivation is, and why organizations do not and cannot - until now - measure it? James Sale tackles the question of what motivation is, why we need it and what happens when we don't have it. He defines and measures motivation from an individual, team and, most critically, organizational or workplace point of view and he introduces the reader to the core concepts of how it relates to fundamental issues such as performance and productivity, and its role in a number of key management functions: team building, performance appraisal, leadership development, engagement and change management. Motivation is a core aspect of all people development initiatives and programmes - if we wish them to succeed. Based on over ten years of research into motivation and performance, James created Motivational Maps, the first and only accurate diagnostic tool that describes, measures, monitors and maximizes motivation and performance through an easy, simple to use, online questionnaire that takes only 10 minutes to complete, and which readers have access to. Mapping Motivation, therefore, is the definitive book on motivation, its language and metrics, written by its creator are full of knowledge, insight and practical tips; this will appeal to leaders, managers, HR specialists, trainers, coaches, consultants and visionaries around the world, who wish to engage with people development and productivity in a new, dynamic way.

The son is the image of the father and this is true in more than a biological sense: where there is true affinity the interests, the emotions and the very spirits align. To say the 'image' is to use a word germane to poetry: the image, the imagination, and the point of creation itself.
On the 23rd July 2011 I collapsed in the car as my wife was driving me to visit my mother and brother in Essex. I was taken to hospital and there for about three months, with brief interludes, I remained. I had two major operations lasting over 5 hours each. Two sarcomas were removed, one the size of a grapefruit, the other the size of an avocado, both in my small intestine, and one very dangerously placed. Some 30% of my small intestines were removed and then for nearly five weeks I couldn't eat or even drink water. I lost over 56 pounds in weight and became remarkably weak. In the darkness, the light of the Spirit shone and I felt the healing, and knew from the revelation that was given me that I would leave that hospital, for as my son, Joseph, subsequently said: my mission was not yet done. These poems, then, are the fruit of that experience. I have been writing poems for over 45 years and if anything could, death has deepened my sense of vocation around the magic and the healing power of words.
