11. Rick Rubin In the Studio (Large Print 16pt) - Jake Brown

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

There is no greater enigma than Rick Rubin working in record production today. As mysterious personally as the Buddhist religion he practices, Rubin has made one thing crystal clear: the records he produces are sonically and stylistically beyond reproach. MTV has called Rubin ''the most important producer of the last 20 years,'' while Rolling Stone ventured even further, deeming Rubin the most successful ''of any genre.'' Without a niche, Rubin has taken greater risks than any producer in the record industry over the past quarter century. Pushing his artists into new territory has garnered Rubin seven Grammys, including Producer of the Year in 2007, and made him the most in - demand record producer working today. Now for the first time, Rick Rubin: In the Studio offers the behind - the - scenes stories of how Rubin created hit albums with such diverse legends as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Run DMC, Johnny Cash, the Beastie Boys, Audioslave, Tom Petty, Metallica, Danzig, Slayer, LL Cool J, The Cult, Weezer, the Dixie Chicks, Linkin Park, System of a Down, Rage Against the Machine, Jay Z, Neil Diamond, Sheryl Crow, and Slipknot. This book chronicles his meteoric rise, from his early days as DJ Double R in the early '80s, founding and running Def Jam Records alongside Russell Simmons from an NYU dorm room, discovering and producing the Beastie Boys and LL Cool J, to his transition in the early '90s into a successful independent record executive, signing and producing the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Johnny Cash, to his role as the most influential producer of all time (currently as the co - head of Columbia Records), and his continued successes with rock/metal supergroups Audioslave, Linkin Park, and Metallica. This in - depth look at the life and times of Rick Rubin - in the studio and beyond - is a must - have for any music fan.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 21.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Prepare to revive your Jewish community with the transformative power of the divine spirit.
Growing numbers of Jews have become disengaged with the religion of their birth. They feel that Judaism fails to speak to them in meaningful ways, and that Jewish institutions and communities have become both stagnant and reactive.
Rabbi Baruch HaLevi, one of the most inspirational and motivational Jewish leaders in America today, and Ellen Frankel, author and speaker, offer a proactive response for reengaging Jews, reclaiming Judaism and reviving Jewish community. They draw from the great success of HaLevi's Congregation Shirat Hayam in Greater Boston to show what is possible when divine spirit is central to the Jewish experience. They identify the difference between a living synagogue and a dying synagogue and offer methods for reviving Jewish spiritual centers, federations, Jewish community centers, Jewish institutions and synagogues that serve as the heart of the Jewish tradition. They offer practical strategies for sustaining and expanding transformation, including tips for providing impassioned leadership, inspired programming and inviting sacred spaces.

14. Speechless A Year in My Father's Business (Large Print 16pt) - James Button

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 23.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

James Button spent a year writing speeches for Kevin Rudd. Before that, he reported on politics as a highly regarded journalist for Fairfax. But James also has politics in the blood: his father was the diminutive but larger - than - life Senator John Button, who was a minister in the Hawke and Keating governments.
Growing up, James watched a roll - call of political luminaries debating the fate of the Labor Party. He saw great victories and defeats at close hand. He believes both his father and his family paid a heavy price for politics.
Speechless is James' highly personal account of a year working in Canberra, seen from both the inside and the outside. It's told through his experience of Kevin Rudd's failure to tell his story, and how this helped destroy his prime ministership. It also reflects on how far the Labor Party has moved from the idealism and pragmatism of his father's generation. He ends on a note of hope for the Party's revival.

16. Fixed Cheating, Doping, Rape and Murder ... the Inside Track on Australia's Racing Industry (Large Print 16pt) - Matthew Benns

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Matthew Benns takes us inside the murky world of Australia's racing industry.
Dapper horse trainer Les Samba was in Melbourne for the annual yearling sales when he turned down an Italian meal with racing contacts saying, 'I have to meet a bloke.' Just hours later he was dead, blood pouring out of five bullet wounds to his head and body.
Racing in Australia has a dark and dangerous underbelly. Powerful people play for high stakes in an industry worth 14 billion dollar. And they don't play nicely.
Yearling sales are rigged, horses doped, races fixed and taxes dodged by high - rolling punters. Every day huge sums of money are made by bookies who don't want to put any of it back into the industry. Meanwhile, jockeys starve themselves to the point of delirium - many suffering permanent injury while racing for as little as 130 dollar a race. Young female jockeys are raped. Horses suffer terribly too - every year almost half of Australia's racehorses are sent to abattoirs to fuel the booming pet - food industry.
This is the true story every racing fan needs to read. It goes past the glorious image of Black Caviar winning off twenty - two starts to reveal what really goes on in the murky corridors of Australian racing. It tells you about the bent jockeys, cheating trainers, crooked owners and greedy bookies. Everyone wants an angle in racing - this book tells you just how often that means the race is Fixed.

18. Catch That Tiger Churchill's Secret Order That Launched the Most Astounding and Dangerous Mission of World War II (Large Print 16pt) - Noel Botham, Bruce Montague

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Unleashed by Hitler in 1942, the German Tiger tank was by far the most powerful tank ever built at the time. The 60 - ton monster could destroy any Allied tank from more than a mile away, and it soon became the most feared tank in the world. Desperate to discover the secret technology used in the Tiger's manufacture, Winston Churchill close a brilliant young army engineer, Major Doug Lidderdale, as his special agent. In a late - night briefing in the subterranean War Rooms under Whitehall he ordered him: 'Go catch me a tiger'. Doug did not hesitate and by February 1943 was facing Rommel's desert army. After several unsuccessful and hair - raising efforts to bag a Tiger on the battlefields of Tunisia, Doug and his team put their lives on the line in a terrifying, close - hand shoot - out with the five - man crew of a Tiger, capturing the tank intact. The morale boost to the Allies was such that both Churchill and King George VI flew to Tunis to examine the Tiger first hand. But the Germans were not finished with Doug. They did not want the secrets of the Tiger benefitting the Allies' sabotage attempts, and constant attacks by the Luftwaffe and U - boats pursued Doug and his men on every step of the journey back to England. But eventually, by October 1943, the Tiger - number 131 - was delivered to London and gifted to Churchill, who had it placed on London's Horse Guards Parade. Lidderdale went on to use some of the Tiger technology to develop war machines for the D - Day landings and was promoted to Colonel. Tiger 131 is now kept at Bovington Tank Museum and is the only working Tiger in the world.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

God's imperatives for us - to practice peacemaking, love others and build community - all begin with authentic dialogue.
