Eight of George Bernard Shaw's most memorable plays in one splendid collection:

Mrs. Warren's Profession: Shaw pits a clever heroine against a memorable gallery of rogues in this superbly intelligent and still shocking comedy, which was banned for eight years from the English stage after its London debut. Performed by Shirley Knight, et al.

Arms and the Man: The beautiful, headstrong Raina awaits her fiancé's return from battle - but instead meets a soldier who seeks asylum in her bedroom. Performed by Anne Heche, et al.

Candida: Shaw's warm and witty play challenged conventional wisdom about relationships between the sexes, as a beautiful wife must choose between the two men who love her. Performed by JoBeth Williams, et al.

The Devil's Disciple: A young hero who disdains heroism makes the ultimate sacrifice for honor and country during the American Revolution. Performed by Richard Dreyfuss, et al.

Major Barbara: This sparkling comedy traverses family relations, religion, ethics and politics - as only Shaw, the master dramatist, can! Performed by Kate Burton, Roger Rees, et al.

The Doctor's Dilemma: A well-respected physician is forced to choose whom he shall save: a bumbling friend or the ne'er-do-well husband of the woman he loves. Performed by Martin Jarvis, Paxton Whitehead, et al.

Misalliance: A self-made millionaire and his family invite their future in-law for a visit to their estate. In this delightfully clever play, issues of gender, class, politics, and family are all targets for Shaw's keen wit. Performed by Roger Rees, Eric Stoltz, et al.

Pygmalion: Shaw's beloved play about an irascible speech professor who decides to mold a Cockney flower girl into the darling of high society. Performed by Shannon Cochran, et al.

    " Perhaps one of the most famous books in United Kingdom. The book is known as model of movie called "pretty woman", and you basically are able to see one little poor girl is going to develop as a lady throughout the story. While the movie version of this book is also famous, I still would recommend this book even though if you have already watched the movie since the some of the part in the story and ending are different. That the book is absolutely enjoyable, and therefore I would recommend this book. "

    " Amazing.I had to read it for my coursework and it is the first time i realized i saw an experiment with a human subject.Its so entertaining at the moment i never realized how it was a mocking of the judgement criteria people had for distinguishing between classes.In that case the whole experiment was revolutionary.
