3. Families and Other Nonreturnable Gifts - Claire LaZebnik

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

#1 New York Times bestselling author John C. Maxwell can teach you how to turn any situation into a winning experience. No one wins at everything they try. But any setback, whether professional or personal, can become a step forward with the right tools and mindset to turn loss into a gain. Drawing on nearly 50 years of leadership experience, Maxwell provides a roadmap for winning by examining the eleven elements that constitute the "DNA" of people who succeed in the face of problems, failure, and losses. Learning is not easy during down times. It takes discipline to do the right thing when something goes wrong. As John Maxwell often points out, experience itself isn't the best teacher; evaluating, understanding, and growing from your experience is. By examining how that process works, you can learn how to take risks and tackle challenges with a successful person's outlook. Derived from material previous published in Sometime You Win--Sometimes You Learn.

Freelance journalist John Lisners tells the fascinating story of Murdoch's amazing rise and fall. His graphic account of the culture, the methods and the men who worked for Rupert Murdoch is as incisive as it is entertaining.

Thugs hired by his ex-boss violently abducted and cryogenically preserved him in a crisis moment at the beginning of a Jihad nuclear war. Two hardluck kids revived him -- twelve-year-old Lila, a smart and sassy girl who pays for it with beatings, and Jock, her fourteen-year-old woods-wise brother. After finding Andy up the canyon and injured by the preservation process, the kids helped him to their village.The new era echoes its dark past with a vicious present, and fear rules short lives. Andy finds that Jock and Lila need him as much as he needed them. Together, with cunning, tenacity and often a use of scientific "magic," the three forge a path throught Andy's midnight-of-the-soul in a story that will grab your heart, mind, and curiosity, and pull you into their evolving world.

9. The Coen Brothers The Story of Two American Filmmakers (Large Print 16pt) - Josh Levine

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

Everything you wanted to know about the direction of Fargo, The Big Lebowski, and Barton Fink. A terrified woman plunges a knife through the hand of her pursuer. A leftwing playwright turns to the woman in his bed, only to find a river of blood. A baby, abandoned in the middle of the highway, smiles happily. A professional killer stuffs his partner into a woodchipper while a pregnant cop pulls her gun. Welcome to the world of the Coen Brothers. With the smash success of Fargo (winner of two major Academy Awards), the filmmaking team of Joel and Ethan Coen finally received their deserved recognition. But well before that the two brothers were writing and directing terrific films - from the film - noir thriller Blood Simple, to the comedy Raising Arizona, to the gangster epic Miller's Crossing, to the bizarre Barton Fink. With each film they have surprised fans and critics alike, always refusing to repeat themselves or compromise their independence. Their upcoming George Clooney film, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, due out in October 2000, is one of the most highly anticipated films of the year. While still in their early twenties, Joel and Ethan Coen raised the money for their first film - by knocking on the doors of the wealthy in their native Minnesota. Starring an unknown actress named Frances McDormand (who would later become Joel's wife), it was an art - house hit and allowed the brothers to make Raising Arizona with Nicolas Cage and another Coen brothers discovery, Holly Hunter. But despite their high reputation, the brothers would not make another financially successful picture for years. Were their films just too offbeat and intellectual? And then came Fargo. Here is the story of how two middle - class Minnesota boys have come to write, shoot, and direct some of the most gruesome, exhilarating, and funny films of our time.

10. David E. Kelley The Man Behind Ally McBeal (Large Print 16pt) - Josh Levine

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

America's luckiest guy? The real story behind the most important man in the lives of Michelle Pfeiffer and Ally McBeal. I love Ally McBeal, says one female fan. ''She's gorgeous, she has a great job, men are crazy about her, and she's still unhappy! Well, if Ally can be unhappy then I can be unhappy too.''
Is that what the popularity of Ally McBeal is about? Misery loves company? Only partly. The dialogue is scintillating, the characters peculiar, the stories - and not just those fantasy moments - are creative and surprising. But most of all, Ally McBeal is about romance. First - date kisses. Lost chances. Jealous suspicions. Raging desire. Wattle fetishes. As Shakespeare and David E. Kelley know, these are everyone's favorite topics. How did David Kelley, the man behind Ally McBeal, become one of the most exciting writer/creator/producers working in television today? How did a young lawyer with almost no writing experience end up scripting some of the best episodes of L.A. Law? And go on to create Picket Fences, Chicago Hope, and The Practice? And then marry Michelle Pfeiffer? And create a female character named Ally who would become so popular, so loved and reviled, that she would end up on the cover of Time? Depending on which newspaper columnist or public commentator you ask, Ally McBeal is either destroying the American feminist movement or revealing the secret hopes and desires of women across the country. In Ally, David Kelley has captured the spirit of our times. And he's having fun doing it, too.
Find out how, in David E. Kelley: The Man Behind ''Ally McBeal.''
