This is the personal, introspective travelogue of rock's foremost drummer, enthusiastic biker, and sensitive husband and father.

8. Fergie Rises How Britain's Greatest Football Manager Was Made (Large Print 16pt) - Michael Grant

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

When Sir Alex Ferguson retired at the end of the 2013 season, he was the most successful football manager Britain had ever seen, having won twice as many trophies as his nearest rival. But that success had not come easily. Thirty - five years previously he had arrived at the rain - swept training ground at Aberdeen F.C. as the recently sacked manager of St Mirren; a hothead with a troublesome reputation and a lot to prove. Not for nothing, many thought he was a risky choice. Fergie Rises returns to a time when Ferguson was lucky to get Aberdeen, not the other way around. It's the story of an eight - year revolution that saw the Dons and their ambitious young manager knock the Old Firm off their perch, taste victory in Europe for the first time, and electrify Scottish football. When Ferguson finally left the club for Manchester United, in 1986, fans and rivals were unanimous in believing he had engineered one of the most astonishing upheavals in the game's history. Taking a view from inside the dug - out, and with the guidance of the giants of that Aberdeen team - including Willie Miller, Jim Leighton and Gordon Strachan - Michael Grant lays bare the full story of this remarkable but little known period of Ferguson's career, revealing it as the crucible in which Britain's greatest football manager was forged. Along the way he examines the personal tragedies Ferguson overcame - the deaths of his father and his mentor Jock Stein - and the rivalries, setbacks and triumphs that shaped a sporting genius.

Denied full disclosure during his trial, Thatcher now offers it to the public with evidence not seen in the trial, legal documents and personal correspondence.

13. Finding Balance Healing from a Decade of Vestibular Disorders (Large Print 16pt) - Sue Hickey

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

Over 10 million adults in the United States have chronic problems with dizziness and imbalance - vestibular problems. This compares to 400,000 with multiple sclerosis or 1.5 million with autism for example, both chronic illnesses with much greater name recognition. Vestibular problems are difficult to diagnose and treat. While vestibular problems come with various medical names (Meniere's, Perilymph Fistula, Endolymphatic Hydrops, Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), and others) they present a common challenge for the affected person on how to deal with the dizziness and eventually find balance. ''Finding Balance'' addresses over a decade of illness, from the initial two years searching for a diagnosis, through the long years of treatment and finally to the period of rebuilding a life within the confines of what dizziness and vertigo will allow. ''Finding Balance'' provides a detailed description of symptoms, what can trigger them, the emotional reactions to symptoms, how to recognize their subtle differences, and how to track them in order to contribute to your diagnosis. It also emphasizes the patient's responsibility for healing and eventually how to find the inner balance in life that will be necessary to equitably live with these symptoms over time. And it provides a sense of time, of patience. Special features of ''Finding Balance'' include: call - out boxes presenting facts and tips for dealing with the disorder; all of the medical information in the book has been reviewed by vestibular specialists for accuracy; bulleted lists at the end of chapter with advice to the reader on next steps; and a resource section at the end of the book listing associations, websites, and other patient resources.

14. Forgiven (Large Print 16pt) - Vince Russo

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

The mid - 90s marked the beginning of the most exciting and controversial era in the history of pro wrestling. The days of Hulkamania and Saturday morning cartoons were gone - fan interest waned, the on - air product became dated and ratings plummeted. And then, from Long Island, New York, the WW''s billionaire owner Vincent Kennedy McMahon found a most unlikely savior.Ask any wrestling fan about Vince Russo and you're sure to get a heated reaction. Opinion varies, but it's always passionate: the guy's a genius; or he single - handedly ruined the sport. Either way, Russo is perhaps the most enigmatic and influential figure in modern wrestling. What's weird about being ''the most hated man'' in an industry where public ire is money in the bank? Vince Russo wasn't even a wrestler - he just wrote the stuff.A visionary trendsetter, Russo surfed the zeitgeist. Before phrases like ''shock TV'' and ''reality TV'' were ever uttered, Russo brought those revolutions to pro wrestling fans worldwide. Part of the select few responsible for creating the late 90s phenomenon known as ''sports entertainment,'' as lead writer Russo took the WWF's flagship program Monday Night Raw to unimaginable heights, its 8 Nielsen rating market share making it, to this day, the highest rated cable program in television history.Forgiven: One Man's Journey from Self - Glorification to Sanctification is the book that every wrestling fan has been waiting for - for the first time fans will get the true story from the man who was involved with it all. Other books have touched on the successes and tragedies - the double cross that cost Bret Hart his championship and ruined his two decade long father/son relationship with Vince McMahon; the rise to superstardom of ''The Heartbreak Kid'' Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Mick Foley, and The Rock; the tragic accidental death of Owen Har - but none can offer this perspective: Vince Russo was part of it all, writing it all. But Forgiven is not just destined to be another best - selling wrestling book. Here, the most misunderstood man in sports entertainment finally comes clean - with the fans, and more importantly, with himself. A touching and beautifully written memoir, Forgiven offers Russo's life, his work, and his very soul as a modern day parable about the price of success. In heart breaking detail he shows how a ''Godforsaken'' business and the desire for power and acclaim led him, unwittingly, into a spiritual wasteland. As one of TV's most successful writers of the late 90s, there was nothing he wouldn't put before the camera to make wrestling entertainment's hottest commodity. But as he became more and more successful - with million dollar a year salaries being dangled before him - he became despondent. Ultimately, Vince Russo's Forgiven becomes a story of redemption. In the end, it is Russo's faith and family, not his ''role'' in professional wrestling, that bring him true happiness. Finding guidance and forgiveness in God, he becomes more powerful than he ever was helping to guide an entertainment empire.

19. Freedom's Teacher (Large Print 16pt) - Charron

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

Septima Poinsette Clark's gift to the civil rights movement was education. In the mid-1950s, this former public school teacher developed a citizenship training program that enabled thousands of African Americans to register to vote and then to link the power of the ballot to concrete strategies for individual and communal empowerment. This vibrantly written biography places Clark (1898-1987) in a long tradition of southern African American activist educators, women who spent their lives teaching citizenship by helping people to help themselves. Freedom's Teacher traces Clark's life from her earliest years as a student, teacher, and community member in rural and urban South Carolina to her increasing radicalization as an activist following World War II, highlighting how Clark brought her life's work to bear on the civil rights movement. Katherine Mellen Charron's engaging portrait demonstrates Clark's crucial role--and the role of many black women teachers--in making education a cornerstone of the twentieth-century freedom struggle. Drawing on autobiographies and memoirs by fellow black educators, state educational records, papers from civil rights organizations, and oral histories, Charron argues that the schoolhouse served as an important institutional base for the movement. Clark's program also fostered participation from grassroots southern black women, affording them the opportunity to link their personal concerns to their political involvement on the community's behalf. Using Clark's life as a lens, Charron sheds valuable new light on southern black women's activism in national, state, and judicial politics, from the Progressive Era to the civil rights movement and beyond. This edition is in two volumes. The first volume ISBN is 9781458782304.
