    Inspiration Nation invites author Allen Klein

    in Books

    Teresa Morrow, host of Inspiration Nation invites author Allen Klein


    About Allen Klein:


    Ever hear of a "Jollytologist®"? Well meet the world's one and only Allen Klein. Through his books and his presentations, Klein shows people worldwide how to deal with everything from traffic jams to tragedies.


    Klein got into this unusual line of work after his wife died of a rare liver disease at the age of 34. He saw how humor helped her, and those around her, cope. He also saw how humor helped him get through that loss. He now teaches others how to find some in trying times. Those audiences include people in 48 states as well as Israel and Australia, and clients from IBM to the IRS.


    Klein is an award-winning speaker and best-selling author. He is the recipient of a Toastmasters Communication and Leadership Award and a Certified Speaking Professional designation from the National Speakers Association. (Less than 800 of its 4,000 members have this honor.) Klein has authored, among other books, The Healing Power of Humor, Quotations to Cheer You Up, Up Words for Down Days, and The Courage to Laugh. The first book, The Healing Power of Humor, shows people how to use humor to deal with everyday trials and tribulations; the latter book, The Courage to Laugh, documents how people have used humor to triumph over tragedy.


    Klein has a master's degree in humor from St. Mary's College in Minnesota (and that's no joke!) And he is well suited to his subject. Years before becoming a "Jollytologist®", Klein was nicknamed the "King of Whimsy" because he designed all the children shows at CBS television in New York City. Among those productions was one you probably remember the Captain Kangaroo show.

    The World Cricket Show-Interview with Dr Dean Allen Author "Empire and Cricket"

    in Sports

    Interview with the author about Dr Dean Allen’s Cricket, War and Empire in South Africa which is a unique social history of the workings of the British Empire in South Africa during the late nineteenth century. Allen offers an original historical account of the significance of Matjiesfontein and its founder James Douglas Logan. This work reveals the true story of the involvement of Logan and Matjiesfontein leading up to and including the Anglo-Boer War.

    Cecil Rhodes is on record as saying he had only met two creators in South Africa, one being himself and the other James Douglas Logan. Born in Reston, Scotland in 1859, Logan emigrated to South Africa at the age of nineteen. This book explores how Logan made his fortune in nineteenth century South Africa through business, politics and a high profile association with the British Empire’s favourite sport – cricket. Unique photographs and documents from the Logan family archives, many of which have never been published before, form an integral part of the publication.

    A native of Somerset in the West Country of England, Dr Dean Allen’s long association with South Africa began in the mid 1990s when he began his studies at Stellenbosch University. Currently a lecturer in Sport Management at Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Dean has taught at Universities in South Africa, Australia, Northern Ireland and England and is widely published in the areas of sports history and sociology. It was during research for his Masters Degree that Dean first visited Matjiesfontein and a fascination for the history of cricket and this region led to a PhD that was completed in 2008. His book Logan of Matjiesfontein - Cricket, War and Empire is the result of that doctoral study.
