Far - north Queensland: 'It is a magic land and we could support a population of 80 million people in the Gulf Country alone.' Women: 'He said that I considered women second - class citizens. If they were staying at home and not working then I would not consider them second - class; I would consider them first - class citizens.'

Kilbane grew up the hard way, enduring a tough Lancashire childhood with his Irish immigrant family. It was only his prowess on the pitch, and subsequent signing with his childhood club Preston North End, that gave him the opportunity to escape poverty. Kilbane has since built a formidable reputation as an honest, dedicated professional who always gave his very best. he became a firm favourite with fans at the likes of West Bromwich Albion, Everton, Wigan and Hull, as well, of course, as Ireland, before he retired in 2012. Nowadays he is making a name for himself as a thoughtful analyst of the game on television and radio. But football is not the only passion in his life: as the parent of a daughter with Down's syndrome, he gives as much time and support as he can to the Down's Syndrome Association and Down's Syndrome Ireland, to which all the royalties from this book are being donated. Kilbane's autobiography is a genuinely inspiring story of a stalwart of the beautiful game.

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

Kylie first made it big in the late 1980s as Charlene in the Australian soap ''Neighbours''. Moving to England, she made the transition to pop sensation when she worked with producers Stock, Aitken and Waterman.When the hits dried up in the 1990s, Kylie was faced with her first major challenge. She had to reinvent herself for a new generation of fans. Stepping out of the shadow of her producers, she bravely forged her own path as an independent performer. But though everyone was still talking about her, she had to face the fact that she wasn't at the top any more.And so she reinvented herself again in the early 2000s as a disco diva - and this time, her career, which appeared to be in gentle but terminal decline, was turned around dramatically. Songs such as ''Spinning Around'' and ''Can't Get You Out Of My Head'' were pop classics and provided reason enough for the public that had always held her in huge affection to fall in love all over again. Kylie - mania spread all over the world and her reputation was sealed - she was an international superstar.After her traumatic battle with breast cancer, the Aussie diva came back stronger and sexier than ever, putting on a breath - taking comeback with her ever - elaborate Showgirl tour. Now, still a firm favourite with the public, Kylie Minogue can do no wrong. And twenty years on from the release of her first single ''Loco - Motion'', with over 40 million records sold and her tenth studio album released, she is showing no signs of slowing down. The Queen of Pop is definitely here to stay - this is her story.
