The Cutting Edge: The Story of the Beatles’ Hairdresser Who Defined an Era

“The best Beatles book for some time”

–  British Beatles Fan Club Magazine

The Beatles’ hair changed the world. As their increasingly wild, untamed manes grew, to the horror of parents everywhere, they set off a cultural revolution as the most tangible symbol of the Sixties’ psychedelic dream of peace, love and playful rebellion. In the midst of this epochal change was Leslie Cavendish, hairdresser to the Beatles and some of the greatest stars of the music and entertainment industry.But just how did a fifteen-year-old Jewish school dropout from an undistinguished North London suburb, with no particular artistic talent or show­business connections, end up literally at the cutting edge of Sixties’ fashion in just four years? His story – honest, always entertaining and inspiring – parallels the meteoric rise of the Beatles themselves, and is no less astounding.

Published by Alma Books, distributed by Bloomsbury Press in the UK, US and Australia, and available also in Spanish.

Humans on Trial (RBA Integral, 2006)

portada_ebook_marco_200x300“An extraordinary book… A delightful story, presented as a fable, that will appeal to readers of all ages. There is courtroom drama, gripping suspense, memorable characters and witty repartee. It is a tale that entertains while, at the same time, it raises important ethical issues concerning animal welfare and environmental stewardship. It forces us to think about humanity’s true place in the natural world… José Antonio Jáuregui and Eduardo, I salute you both. You have made a major contribution to the future of life, as we know it, on Planet Earth.”

Jane Goodall Ph.D., DBE
Founder – the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace

Representatives from every corner of the Animal Kingdom have gathered in the jungle for an extraordinary trial. The Human Being is accused of atrocious crimes against its fellow creatures: Slander, Physical Abuse and Genocide.

The forked tongue of Kali the Cobra will provide evidence and arguments against our species, while Philos the Dog, friend and defense attorney, will do everything possible to save us from being condemned. Several witnesses will testify for and against the prosecution, including a cow, a bonobo ape, a chinese box turtle and even a mosquito.

In the end, Solomon the Owl, wise judge of this unprecedented legal case, will pronounce his veredict: Is Homo Sapiens a threat for all life on Earth, an arrogant, cruel and murderous species that does not deserve the freedom granted by its genes? Or can it still redeem itself before the rest of its fellow animals? The time has come for us to face the Law of the Jungle.

Humans on Trial is the last book and first novel of the celebrated Spanish anthropologist and intellectual José Antonio Jáuregui (1941-2005), described by Edward O. Wilson as “a pioneer in sociology and evolutionary biology, and an original thinker of the first rank”. When Jose Antonio died before finishing the manuscript, his son Eduardo edited and completed the text for its posthumous publication. Since then over 10.000 copies have been sold in three editions, and several theatrical adaptations of the book have been staged, in Spain, the UK and elsewhere.

This book is available in English for Kindle and other eReaders, and also in Spanish, Galician, Korean and Turkish.

“Read Sicilian Yoga, it’s a beautiful book” –Radio Nacional de España


Lisa Vogel sells happiness, bottled by the most well-known brand in the world. But she can’t find the sparkle in her own life. Stressed at work, recently divorced, and with her father facing Alzheimer, she only seems to find peace of mind in her yoga classes.

Suddenly, she receives an unexpected inheritance from a distant Italian relative: a beachfront house in the small Sicilian town of Santa Caterina. Lisa decides to quit her job in Frankfurt and move to Sicily for a year, to refurbish the house for its sale. In the meanwhile, she’ll take a rest from her stressful lifestyle and try to find a new professional direction.

However, things won’t turn out as she planned. She will become, almost in spite of herself, the yoga teacher for the entire area. She will fall in love with the island, with its pessimistic yet cheerful people, its ancient and modern ruins, its maritime and volcanic energies. She will fall in love, also, with the wrong man. And she will find herself embroiled in shady dealings which are not spoken of in the Bhagavad Gita.

The Pirate Queen

“No one will believe my story, I know. And yet, I must tell it: the tale of that extraordinary woman —a saint to some, a devil to others— known to legend as the Pirate Queen. For all her sins —stolen gold, sunken ships, an entire city razed to the ground— I hold myself responsible. Whether I acted rightly or wrongly in those early days of the Empire’s conquest, only the Lord above can judge. In any case, this is my confession.”

—Miguel de Sevilla, Santa Cruz de la Palma, 1559

When the Spanish conquistadors are unable to defeat the fierce Awara warriors on the island of La Palma, they resort to the vilest treachery. Daida, daughter of Tanausu, is captured and boarded on the conquerors’ ship, as a gift for the Catholic Kings. But the indomitable girl swears revenge before her sun-god Abora, against those who betrayed her people. Daida escapes and becomes the corsair known as the “Queen of Pirates”, a notorious liberator of slaves throughout the New World. And one day, she will return to La Palma to fulfil her oath.

El sentido del humor: manual de instrucciones (RBA Integral, 2007)
The sense of humour: a user’s guide

“Eduardo Jáuregui is an expert on the subject and an accomplished comic writer. His book is both more profound and more fun than might at first be supposed.”  –Antonio Fraguas “Forges”, Spain’s most admired political cartoonist

El Sentido del Humor

Is stress getting the better of you? Are you bored by humdrum routine? Do you think the world is a mess? Don’t worry. The sense of humour is coming to the rescue.

The sense of humour, by Eduardo Jáuregui, is a necessary reference guide for life in the 21st century, aimed at helping you make the most of that invaluable biological mechanism which so many people seemed to have stored away in the furthest corner of the mind’s attic: their natural capacity for fun, play and laughter.

Humour is a powerful biotechnological application with a wide array of functionalities. It connects and communicates people without the need for cables or Wifi. It promotes health with no side effects. It generates a tremendous amount of productive energy without polluting the atmosphere. And though it cannot mow your lawn or provide you with a range of speeds for chopping up your vegetables, it allows you to have more fun while carrying out your everyday chores and overcome your bad mood when the lawnmower eats up your fifty-pound note or the food processor sprays you with soup.

Based on solid scientific research and packed with hilarious examples and practical exercises, this manual will help you to find, tune-up and reactivate your rusty sense of humour, to understand all of its mysteries and to apply it in everyday life with the skill of the wisest fool.

Amor y humor (RBA Integral, 2009)
Love and humour

“I admit it. On page twenty I laughted out loud for the first time, and it wasn’t the last. This guy has that gift. He knows how to make you laugh in person and in his books. The most recent one, Love and humour, is a wonderful essay”. –Paloma Leyra, subdirector of Grazia, Harper’s Bazaar and other publications


Love and humour are two key ingredients of wellbeing, and two of the most profound mysteries of human experience. But there is more, because according to positive psychology, there exists a very intimate relationship between tickling and caressing. The people with whom we laugh most easily are also those we love most dearly –and vice-versa. Flirting is a playful but essential activity in the game of love, not to mention that of sex. In the long run, couples who laugh and play together last longer and are more satisfied with their relationships. Love and humour are twin pillars of mental health, two complementary emotional bonds, a pair of lovers who laugh, play and desire each other with madness.

In this original and amusing essay, full of hilarious, sweet, sexy and inspiring examples, Eduardo Jáuregui explores the relationship between love and humour, based on the scientific studies that have identified humour as one of the essential skills of the true art of loving, and love as one of the essential components of the true sense of humour.

Love and humour is a perfect ilustration of Danish comedian Victor Borge’s celebrated quote: “Laughter is the shortest distance between two people”.
