'You can only marvel at Robertson's brilliant audacity as he attacks the on-the-road-off-their-heads genre with giddy aplomb... He is either a genius or an utter madman' – NME 'Robertson's raw portrayal of Liam Gallagher makes every indiscretion you've heard about seem perfectly feasible!' - TIME OUT Oasis were a band like bands used to be. Hard-drinking and substance abusing. If they liked you, they loved you. If they didn't, you had to be prepared for confrontation. They were also the most viscerally exciting rock band to emerge from Britain for years. Iain Robertson is used to tough jobs – after retiring from the Parachute Regiment, he took on jobs guarding George Harrison, Gary Moore and Johnny Rotten. But keeping Oasis on the rails after debut album Definitely Maybe ignited their rise toward global superstardom would be the toughest gig of them all. Iain was side-by-side with Oasis as their road manager and minder, twenty-four hours a day, eight days a week, as they took on the world and won. No one was closer to the maelstrom. His story is the defining chronicle of life on tour with Oasis.

The award-winning author “provides mentoring and practical and technical advice in this handy how-to book . . . as useful to teachers as to young writers” (School Library Journal, starred review). Storytelling is a universal experience. From an early age, we begin to shape our own world by crafting tales. But learning to tell—and write—a good story isn’t easy. It takes dedication and practice, just like for a musician or an athlete, and it can be just as rewarding to accomplish as winning a game or mastering an instrument. It’s the kind of work that feeds our souls and makes us glad to be alive. In What’s Your Story?, Newbery Medal-winning author Marion Dane Bauer discusses how to write fiction from beginning to end, including creating a story plan, choosing the best idea, bringing characters to life, deciding on a point of view, creating realistic dialogue, keeping readers hooked, and revising and polishing the finished product. “Her last comment is telling: ‘Knowing your craft can help you tell a story. But only by taking risks can you make art.’ After many pages of provocative information and straightforward counsel, that sentence may be the one to launch youngsters to the challenge. The book speaks directly to young writers, but many adults (teachers, librarians, reviewers, editors, would-be writers) will also find this sensible dissection of the storytelling process invaluable.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “A pragmatic, organized approach to story writing . . . the exercises and thought processes introduced as groundwork come across as stimulating rather than tedious and may serve to hone analytical skills as well as inspire even the most reluctant writers to try their hand.”—Publishers Weekly

What’s Your Story is a compelling, inspiring guide for dads and their children. In turns provocative and playful, it lays out a path for fathers to share their stories. The results can be momentous. You see Mom for the first time—what happens next? Is resilience something learned or something developed? You’ve just had a perfect day—what happened? If I could hear your voice telling me something every single morning I wake up and every night I go to bed, what would you say? What’s Your Story fosters a powerful conversation between father and child. It encourages a dialogue that helps kids learn more about their dad—questions about their upbringing, belief systems and what stories they want to share with their family’s future generations. The authors offer a carefully crafted path designed to cultivate the sharing of a dad’s life stories and world view.

Sometimes we choose a path but see ourselves walking on another. Unexpectedly we are forced to accept it because destiny is the most uncertain evil of our dreams. Bani, a young, smart, and a small town yet an ambitious girl carries a charm to tempt anyone towards her. She aims to join Journalism Institute in Delhi at first, but ended up joining the law school as her second choice. Life seemed to be crueler when it took away her father. Vasu, a good looking, enthusiastic and a brave advocate who never failed to crack even the toxic cases, lost his wife, Meera in some conspiracy and started losing faith in life until he met Bani. A few months later, as an assistant under Vasu, Bani decided to work upon Meera's case which co-incidentally brought Bani and Aayan, Bani's lost love together, again twisting the lives of all three. Revolving across three cities, the story weaving paralleled lives is an intriguing account of twists and turns. 'What's Your Story, Stranger?' is a refreshing heartfelt tale of faith, hope, determination, friendship and courage. This inspiring love-mystery tale thus redefines our beliefs in life as stories move us and drive us to what we can really become in life despite losses, failures and setbacks.

In this book, Gretchen Oltman and Vicki Bautista walk you through the eight steps necessary to craft a personal leadership philosophy: a reflective explanation of the leadership style, core values, mindset, and real-life experiences that make you the leader you are today. When you can authentically tell your story, your school community will know you, what you value, and why you make decisions the way you do. You will rediscover a sense of purpose, renewal, and inspiration that may have slipped away amid the chaos of life—and you can build a stronger connection with those you lead and work beside. Leading in a school setting does not mean you need to lose your individual identity. You became a school leader by following your own unique path. You possess talents that set you apart from others. By working purposefully to share your personal leadership philosophy, you can create a new expectation of what school leaders should be and counter the unrealistic assumptions that others may hold. You can be more than your title. What's your leadership story?

This book is about the demise of Florida which in turn pollutes the rest of the world. It is an honest eye-opening story of how quickly humans are destroying what nature provides right here in America, on a small peninsula, surrounded by water. If we use our resources properly and pay the true price for its use, we will prosper, not destroy. Which path will humanity take? Everyone should read this story if they want to open their eyes to the reality of the world. Then visit the sites and do research to verify the truths. Some people cannot face the truth, they have families to raise, property to support. But to those who are or wish to be truly free, I say “face the truth and act to protect nature”. Wanda S.

In What Really Happened, Kevin Groenhagen presents the facts concerning Bill Clinton's actual record on Iraq and terrorism. It's a record that is far different from what Clinton Inc, and their allies in the media have been telling the American people during the past eight years. The facts Clinton Inc. has attempted to rewrite include, but are not limited to, the following: * The Clinton administration in 1998 claimed that al Qaeda reached an understanding with the government of Iraq that al Qaeda would not work against that government and that on particular projects, specifically including weapons development, al Qaeda would work cooperatively with the Government of Iraq. * Secretary of Defense William Cohen in July 2000 said protecting the American people from the threat posed by axis of evil (Iran, Iraq, and North Korea) was the most important issue to address. * Bill Clinton's policies vis-a-vis Iraq ultimately led to 9/11 and other messages with no words.
