Madonna, Andrew Morton
1 Andrew Morton Madonna
Bantam Books 238545 Australia 2001 First Edition 1863253300 / 9781863253307 Hardcover Good Condition Good The explosive New York Times bestseller--Madonna From motherless child to wife and mother, from "boy toy" to fiercely independent diva, Madonna is one of the most remarkable women of our time. With a career that spans two decades and ranges from the scandalous to the transcendent, she is a bigger phenomenon than ever. But who is the private woman behind the public image? Andrew Morton, whose #1 New York Times bestsellers about Princess Diana and Monica Lewinsky have proven his ability to gain access to insiders who won't talk to anyone else, answers that question in this decidedly unauthorized new biography. Morton's extensive, in-depth interviews with members of Madonna's inner circle--lovers, friends, and business connections, many of whom have never spoken out before--allow him to go beyond the carefully constructed myths to unmask the real Madonna. Andrew Morton is able to make startling revelations, among them the real story of Madonna's family background; the events behind the violent attack that changed her views on sex and men; her relationships with Michael Jackson, Prince, John F. Kennedy Jr., Vanilla Ice, and other rock and Hollywood stars; the mystery man she wanted to marry; and the darkest days of her career when she threatened to quit show business. In this fascinating, richly detailed biography, Andrew Morton reveals Madonna in an entirely new light. 256 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

A Woman Entangled, Cecilia Grant
4 Cecilia Grant A Woman Entangled
Bantam Books 242078 New York 2013 0345532562 / 9780345532565 Softcover Near Fine Condition An ambitious beauty seeking a spot among the elite is thwarted by a most disruptive gentleman in Cecilia Grant's witty, elegant, and exquisitely sensual novel. Kate Westbrook has dreams far bigger than romance. Love won't get her into London's most consequential parties, nor prevent her sisters from being snubbed and looked down upon--all because their besotted father unadvisedly married an actress. But a noble husband for Kate would deliver a future most suited to the granddaughter of an earl. Armed with ingenuity, breathtaking beauty, and the help of an idle aunt with connections, Kate is poised to make her dreams come true. Unfortunately, a familiar face--albeit a maddeningly handsome one--appears bent on upsetting her scheme. Implored by Kate's worried father to fend off the rogues eager to exploit his daughter's charms, Nick Blackshear has set aside the torch he's carried for Kate in order to do right by his friend. Anyway, she made quite clear that his feelings were not returned--though policing her won't abate Nick's desire. Reckless passion leads to love's awakening, but time is running out. Kate must see for herself that the charms of high society are nothing compared to the infinite sweet pleasures demanded by the heart. 324 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Recollections Of A Bleeding Heart: A Portrait of Paul Keating PM, Don Watson
6 Don Watson Recollections Of A Bleeding Heart: A Portrait of Paul Keating PM
A Knopf Book 241998 USA 2002 First Edition 0091835178 / 9780091835170 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good BLEEDING HEART: noun, derisory. One of liberal or social democratic views. One who believes there is such a thing as a society. Not an economic rationalist, point head or econocrat. 'There are no bigger dreamers than in our office. It's a mixture of econocrats and bleeding hearts.' PM PAUL KEATING, MARCH 1993 If he had never become Prime Minister Paul Keating's place in Australian history would still have been assured. He was the Treasurer who deregulated the economy; the weaver of Labor's modern story; its heavy weapon in the parliament. He was also the great enigma - a self-educated boy from Sydney's working class and a defining element of the head-kicking Labor right who loved Paris, Mahler and Second Empire clocks. Paul Keating did become Prime Minister. In December 1991 he wrested it from Bob Hawke and the bruises from that struggle were part of the baggage he brought to the job: the other parts included the worst recession in 60 years and an electorate determined to make him pay for it. Keating defied the odds and won the 1993 election, and in his four years as Prime Minister set Australia on a new course - towards engagement with Asia, a republic, reconciliation, a social democracy built on a modern export-based economy and sophisticated public systems of education and training, health and social security. Widely regarded as a quintessential economic rationalist, Keating's record clearly shows that his vision was infinitely broader and more complex. Don Watson was employed as Keating's speechwriter. Though a 'bleeding heart' liberal trained in history rather than economics, he became an advisor and friend to Keating. RECOLLECTIONS OF A BLEEDING HEART - based on notes Watson kept through the four turbulent and exhausting years of Keating's Prime Ministership - is a frank, sympathetic and engrossing portrait of this brilliant and perplexing man, and a unique reflection on modern politics. Heavy tanning to outer page edges, 756 pages. Age tanning to pages. Inscription to previous owner on front endpaper. Black and white illustrations. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos.

Weidenfeld & Nicolson 242853 Great Britain 2010 0297856731 / 9780297856733 Softcover Good Condition Dara Barr, documentary filmmaker, is at the top of her game. She's covered Bosnian women, Neo-Nazis and post-Katrina New Orleans (for which she won an Oscar), but now she's looking for an even bigger challenge. So she and her right-hand-man - a 6-foot-six, 72-year-old, African-American name Xavier - head to Djibouti on the Horn of Africa to tackle modern-day pirates. Once they start filming though, they find a whole lot more than they bargained for. They quickly learn that almost nobody in Djibouti is what he seems. A whole mob of colourful characters patrols the surrounding seas, including a pirate chief who keeps a BMW in Djibouti and a cultured Saudi diplomat with dubious connections. There's a billionaire American who plays different roles as the moods strike him. He loves champagne and firing his 600-calibre elephant gun. If his girlfriend Helene gets seasick or bored, he won't marry her. And there's an Al Qaeda terrorist from Miami with very lofty ambitions, who wants to blow up something big. What Dara and Xavier don't know is which guy is going to get the prize - and what they'll have to do if they want it. 279 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

To protect each other - and this place.' Finding those carved trees forged a bond between Jay and her four childhood friends and opened their eyes to a wider world.

Pipe Dreams: A Surfer's Journey, Kelly Slater with Jason Borte
13 Kelly Slater with Jason Borte Pipe Dreams: A Surfer's Journey
Regan Books 238225 Australia 2003 First Edition 0060096292 / 9780060096298 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good I thought, Pfft, come on. People from Australia are world champions ... But a world champion from Florida? Fuhged-daboudit.Cocoa Beach, Florida, isn't exactly a breeding ground for surfing world champions -- the waves are tiny. So when Kelly Slater was growing up, the furthest thing from his mind was becoming a world champion. He was a Florida grommet whose biggest goal was to one day make it out far enough to catch the two-foot waves his dad and brother were riding -- anything more was a dream. Life in the Slater household wasn't perfect, and as his parents' marriage fell apart and his father battled alcoholism, Slater escaped to the beach and found peace on a surfboard. He devoured surf magazines, sat spellbound while watching surfing movies, and worshiped the gods of the sport who threw themselves into thundering walls of water along the North Shore of Hawaii and around the world. Slater never thought he'd move beyond the Florida shore breaks, but his insatiable thirst for competition and uncanny -- almost innate -- understanding of the physics of surfing destined him for waves and events much bigger than anything Cocoa Beach had to offer. In Pipe Dreams, Slater takes you inside a churning Pipeline tube and lets you experience the rush of adrenaline and danger. He pays tribute to close friends who lost their lives surfing big waves and tells what life on the World Tour is really like, from schmoozing with celebrities to running from stalker fans to the insane competition and off-the-wall antics of the world's most famous surfers -- including Tom Curren, Tom Car-roll, Gary Elkerton, Mark Occhilupo, Rob Machado, and Shane Dorian. Slater also explains his various career moves, such as his stint as a regular on Baywatch, and the ups and downs of his love life -- from his on-again, off-again romance with Pamela Anderson to Bree, his first love, and their broken engagement. Pipe Dreams offers unprecedented access to the globetrotting lifestyle and the rarely seen private life of the man who destroyed every record in a sport long dominated by people who thought world champions didn't grow up in Florida, himself included. Slater holds nothing back, because after six world titles, there is nothing left to prove -- not to himself or to anyone else. 338 pages. Illustrated with colour and black and white photographs.

Random House 241438 Australia 2002 1740511085 / 9781740511087 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition From the author of the international bestseller, Learned Optimism, comes a ground-breaking look at the nature of happiness and how everyone has the power to inject real joy into their lives. Martin E. Seligman is the international leader of the Positive Psychology Movement. His first trade book, the international bestseller Learned Optimism, greatly influenced the way people thought about mental health by bringing the concepts of cognitive psychology to a mass audience. Authentic Happiness is an even bigger ground-breaker. It represents the first time any scientist has placed value in the study not only of mental illness, but of 'mental wellness.' It's not about curing one's ills, but about exercising one's strengths and virtues in order to achieve what Seligman terms 'authentic happiness.' The life-changing lesson of Authentic Happiness is that, by assessing the very best in ourselves, we can improve the world around us and achieve new and lasting levels of genuine contentment and joy. 319 pages.

Ebury Press 240122 Great Britain 2009 1741665833 / 9781741665833 Softcover Very Good Condition Between the ages of 45 and 55 women on average can expect to gain at least 5.5 kg. Not only that, we become bigger in places where flab was never a problem before and this unwelcome new arrival stubbornly refuses to budge. The cause? Muscle loss, a slower metabolism, dwindling supplies of oestrogen and a 21st-century lifestyle conspire to produce a midlife midriff crisis. There are genuine health concerns to consider too - bulging waistlines are now linked to a greater risk of insulin resistance, diabetes, heart problems and Alzheimer's disease. Fit and Firm For Ever offers hope and help for those of us lamenting our jelly bellies and bingo wings. It explains that the main strategy for winning the metabolic war is to build and maintain lots of mighty muscle - and that this is easier than you might think. 177 pages.
