Making of a Man Thomas Nelson Publishers

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

What exactly is manhood? How do guys get there? Tim Brown won the Heisman Trophy at Notre Dame and starred in the NFL for seventeen seasons. He left the game as a Los Angeles and Oakland Raiders legend and one of the most respected men in sports. Now "Mr. Raider" shares his amazing journey-the triumphs, the heartbreaks, the struggles with women, Al Davis, and God-as well as the principles and priorities that made him the man he is today. Much more than a sports memoir, The Making of a Man reveals how faith, family, honor, and integrity have everything to do with true manhood and a life well-lived. Whether you are a rabid fan or have little interest in football, a young boy or already facing the fourth quarter of your life, these pages will both challenge and inspire you to become the man you've always known you could be.

The popular image of journalistic life in days gone by may well be of the heaving newsroom, populated by harassed men with press passes stuck in the bands of their trilbies, but what of the life of the roving freelancer, scribing under his own steam? Orphaned Reg Shay began working life in Fleet Street during the second world war as a messenger before moving up to the news desk and later becoming a South London court reporter. He subsequently moved to Rhodesia for family health reasons where he became a respected and sought-after international war and political correspondent writing for, amongst others, the Evening Standard, Time, Life, and the Mirror; broadcasting regularly on America's ABC News (radio) and ITN's News at Ten. From death-defying excursions up the crocodile-infested Zambezi river (he survived a croc attack), to becoming one country's 'most wanted man' for untrue alleged espionage activities; he was directly responsible for saving many children's lives by discovering a Rhodesian concentration camp and then forcing its immediate closure. He covered four African civil wars over an nineteen-year period, from the Congo to Mozambique, Rhodesia and Angola. During the latter, Henry Kissinger relied solely on Shay's Associated Press reports. This is the story of a life, filmic in its intensity and excitement and uncompromising in honesty and principles (he twice resigned in a personal battle against media censorship), rendered all the more amazing for the fact that Shay appears to have more lives than a clowder of cats.

A Slip of the Keyboard Corgi Books

Książki

Terry Pratchett has earned a place in the hearts of readers the world over with his bestselling Discworld series - but in recent years he has become equally well-known and respected as an outspoken campaigner for causes including Alzheimer's research and animal rights. A Slip of the Keyboard brings together for the first time the finest examples of Pratchett's non fiction writing, both serious and surreal: from musings on mushrooms to what it means to be a writer (and why banana daiquiris are so important); from memories of Granny Pratchett to speculation about Gandalf's love life, and passionate defences of the causes dear to him.With all the humour and humanity that have made his novels so enduringly popular, this collection brings Pratchett out from behind the scenes of the Discworld to speak for himself - man and boy, bibliophile and computer geek, champion of hats, orang-utans and Dignity in Dying.

If you lived on the notorious Canterbury Estate in the '40s and '50s, then you knew there was one man you did not want to cross: Charlie Hudson. A solitary man, feared and respected by the gangsters of the time, Charlie was a boxer who never lost a fight, in or out of the ring - the most infamous of The Canterbury Warriors. My Uncle Charlie, the second title in the explosive series unravels a story of debauchery, crime and self-destruction. Charlie Hudson was a born leader. The eldest of eight brothers and four sisters and with a boxer for a father, fighting was in his blood. And as the young protege of local Italian gangster, Mr Cappovanni, Charlie not only learned to knock every opponent out, he also learned the tools of the crime and extortion trade well; emerging into adulthood in the middle of the war years as a natural heir: running cons, illegal books and a band of prostitutes. But when Charlie met Betty, a sweet, caring girl, he was determined to be a better man for her. He'd still deal with 'business' but no more would he bed his working girls, and the birth of their baby girl, Elizabeth, sealed it: he knew life could not get any better. But for a man who had only ever lived in the belly of the Canterbury Estate underworld, it could definitely get worse...Gritty and engrossing, book two of the Hudson family saga delves deeper into history of the infamous Canterbury Warriors; the true story of one man's ascendancy to power, and the tragedy that brought it all crashing down.

'This enthralling saga of crime, passion, and betrayal, is a compelling portrait of one of empire's great, unsung anti-heroes. The book is a scintillating achievement.' - Jean Comaroff, Harvard University Johannesburg was - and is - the Frontier of Money. Within months of its founding, the mining camp was host to organised crime: the African 'Regiment of the Hills' and 'Irish Brigade' bandits. Bars, brothels, boarding houses and hotels oozed testosterone and violence, and the use of fists and guns was commonplace. Beyond the chaos were clear signs of another struggle, one to maintain control, honour and order within the emerging male and mining dominated culture. In the underworld, the dictum of 'honour among thieves', as well as a hatred of informers, testified to attempts at self-regulation. A 'real man' did not take advantage of an opponent by employing underhand tactics. It had to be a 'fair fight' if a man was to be respected. This was the world that 'One-armed Jack' McLoughlin - brigand, soldier, sailor, mercenary, burglar, highwayman and safe-cracker - entered in the early 1890s to become Johannesburg's most infamous 'Irish' anti-hero and social bandit. McLoughlin's infatuation with George Stevenson prompted him to recruit the young Englishman into his gang of safe-crackers but 'Stevo' was a man with a past and primed for personal and professional betrayal. It was a deadly mixture. Honour could only be retrieved through a Showdown at the Red Lion.

On the day following the guillotining of Antoine Laurent Lavoisier, mathematician Joseph Louis Lagrange lamented the loss of the man commonly considered the father of modern chemistry. "It took them only an instant to cut off that head," he said, "but it is unlikely that a hundred years will suffice to reproduce a similar one." Although he lived only to the age of 51, Lavoisier revolutionized the field of chemistry. He created the first modern table of chemical elements, recognized the role oxygen plays in the rusting of metals, demonstrated that water-previously considered one of the four fundamental elements-is a compound of hydrogen and oxygen, and asserted that the total weights of the products of a chemical reaction must equal the total weights of the reactants. Yet despite his remarkable importance to modern chemistry, Lavoisier's scientific work was more a hobby than a profession. In fact, because he made his living as a tax collector, his scientific work was relegated to early morning and after-dinner hours. Appropriately, the picture Poirier paints of Lavoisier is that of the whole man-not only a scientist but a successful financier, respected economist, and influential administrator as well.

Codger's Kama Sutra CONSTABLE & ROBINSON

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

What is the "Kama Sutra"? Is it a spiritual text written by a visionary man of wisdom in India almost two millennia ago? Or is it the world's first mucky book? Well, it's the former - it's a spiritual text written by a visionary man of wisdom in India almost two millennia ago. Though shocking for its time, the "Kama Sutra" has gone on to become the world's most respected guide book on all matters sexual, and is now on top of the wardrobes or under the beds of over sixty per cent of the world's teenage boys. It is a common and misconceived belief among the younger generations that sex is something not only void in the minds of our senior citizens, but is most likely physically impossible for those who are at or beyond retirement age. The glorious truth may come as a bit of a shock to the youth of today - it may even conjure up images in their minds best left 'till after lunch! The world's oldies are sexually active. New and exciting research has uncovered startling new evidence that oldies are still 'at it', and still 'do it' whenever they don't have a bad back. Can it be true? Are our most senior citizens getting their wrinkly legs over? If you are an older person, take heart - there's a lot of dusty action out there. Sex in the twilight years, though similar in mechanics to the couplings of youth, is in fact vastly different. This book exposes the secret world of grey love and covers every aspect of senior congress - from geriatric anatomy and attraction, through to mating rituals, sex positions, post-sex heart condition medication and proper service and care of pace makers.

Mick Imlah Peter Lang

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

As well as a highly respected poet and editor, Mick Imlah (1956-2009) was one of the finest literary critics of his generation. He spent most of his twenty-five-year career working for the Times Literary Supplement, reinterpreting familiar writers from Tennyson and Trollope to Larkin and Muldoon, and - as his interest in his Scottish background grew - elucidating those fallen from favour, such as Barrie, Buchan, Muir and Scott. With a preface by Mark Ford, this volume draws together a selection of Imlah's essays that reveal the formidable breadth of his unique literary insight, and the flair with which he communicated it. The volume also encompasses some of his pieces on miscellaneous subjects such as sport and travel, as well as on his own poetry, in order to provide a rounded sense of Imlah the man and writer. Mick Imlah was born in 1956 and educated at Magdalen College, Oxford, where he taught as a Junior Fellow. He was editor of Poetry Review from 1983 to 1986, Chatto and Windus poetry editor from 1989 to 1993, and worked at the Times Literary Supplement for many years until his death in 2009. His second collection of poetry, The Lost Leader, won the Forward Prize in 2008.
