Life: Keith Richards
Once-in-a-generation memoir of a rock legend - the No. 1 SUNDAY TIMES bestseller.With the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards created the riffs, the lyrics and the songs that roused the world, and over four decades he lived the original rock and roll life: taking the chances he wanted, speaking his mind, and making it all work in a way that no one before him had ever done.Now, at last, the man himself tells us the story of life in the crossfire hurricane. And what a life. Listening obsessively to Chuck Berry and Muddy Waters records as a child in post-war Kent. Learning guitar and forming a band with Mick Jagger and Brian Jones. The Rolling Stones' first fame and success as a bad-boy band. The notorious Redlands drug bust and subsequent series of confrontations with a nervous establishment that led to his enduring image as outlaw and folk hero. Creating immortal riffs such as the ones in 'Jumping Jack Flash' and 'Street Fighting Man' and 'Honky Tonk Women'. Falling in love with Anita Pallenberg and the death of Brian Jones. Tax exile in France, wildfire tours of the US, 'Exile on Main Street' and 'Some Girls'. Ever increasing fame, isolation and addiction. Falling in love with Patti Hansen. Estrangement from Mick Jagger and subsequent reconciliation. Solo albums and performances with his band the Xpensive Winos. Marriage, family and the road that goes on for ever. In a voice that is uniquely and intimately his own, with the disarming honesty that has always been his trademark, Keith Richards brings us the essential life story of our times.

Not only is it a fantasy novel but a compelling love story too, with elements of murder, mystery and horror.

Up until now she's lived with her elderly Aunt in a rambling old house known as Rawlings, content to spend her days in her happy existence, believing she can never meet the man she grew up with, as he's merely part of her recurring dreams.

The concept of the book was modern/fantasy and is not normally the kind of book I would read, but, once started, was hard to put down. I enjoyed it immensely and would definitely recommend it" B Crick

Stolen Lives (A Danny Sanchez Thriller Book 2)
Almería, Spain. A missing girl is found in a landfill, dead… The right-wing press has an obvious spin: a drug user with prior convictions and a history of running off pays for the hazards of her lifestyle. Journalist Danny Sanchez doesn’t buy it. Teresa del Hoyo had been clean for over a year. More importantly, she’d been looking into murky events dating back to the Spanish Civil War, and of her two partners in crime, one is missing and the other is dead. A simple article about the murder of a young woman for the tabloids leads Danny to the morbid, heart-breaking stories of the niños robados por el franquismo, children reported dead to their Republican parents to be given to “approved” families during Franco’s reign. Danny knows he’s struck something big as he tries to connect Teresa’s political activism and the Church’s interest in the case with her research into the history of Almería. With every step bringing him closer to the truth, it becomes clearer that these 50-year-old secrets still hang over the town… and that someone would kill to keep them. Stolen Lives is an intriguing thriller filled with mystery and suspense that will keep you gripped until the very end.

If we were to respond to difficult situations with a positive or peaceful mind they would not be problems for us; indeed, we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities for growth and development. Problems arise only if we respond to difficulties with a negative state of mind. Therefore, if we want to be happy all the time and to be free from problems, we must develop and maintain a peaceful mind."Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Reboot Your Life: A 12-day Program for Ending Stress, Realizing Your Goals, and Being More Productive
"In Reboot Your Life, I want to offer the very best and latest material on 'life-design', goal-setting, gratitude, and personal productivity in a workbook/ toolkit format for practical people, without much time. The book has the best of David Allen and Steven Covey in concise, daily exercises." (Paul Gibbons)Reboot Your Life is a 12-day process for reflecting on where you are in life, on clearing out aspects that don't work, on designing your mission and vision, creating goals, and learning strategies for realizing those goals with the latest productivity strategies. Each day has a few minutes reading, but then practical exercises and tools to get you quickly into action. "Reboot" is the same process used by life-coaches who charge thousands of dollars, but after completing the process, you will be your own greatest coach.What have people said about the Reboot process “I do Reboot religiously every year. I spring into January on fire and reconnected to my passion and dreams.” (Management Consultant, London)“I used to have big inspiring dreams in my twenties, but as I became more successful, I lost track of the big picture and felt as if I were going through the motions. After Reboot , life feels exactly as it did in my twenties.” (Senior partner, KPMG)“Since working through that process, my life has never been the same, and I’ve never looked back.” (Senior IT Director)“Just the vision- and goal-setting process was worth its weight in gold.” (Entrepreneur, Madison, Wisconsin)“The transitions of the last two years were really hard, especially coming one after another. I needed a fresh start, and working through the process gave me much more value than I expected.” (Director, Public Relations)“I had a lot of great things in my life, but I still woke up some days thinking ‘What’s the point?’ I needed to reconnect with the big picture: why I was on the planet, what I cared about, and what I was doing to do about that.” (CEO, Leadership Consultancy)Reboot Your Life's author, Paul Gibbons, was named 'CEO super coach' by CEO magazine for his work with dozens of CEOs. He has been an entrepreneur, management consultant, investment banker and university lecturer over his 30 year career.
