The dazzlingly funny second volume of Danny Baker's memoirs: the television years. Since my first book was published I have had countless friends and family members get in touch to say how come I hadn't included this story or that tale. Was I ashamed of being shot twice, once up the arse, in Jamaica Road? How long should a man live with such a secret? If by retrospectively dropping my trousers every few pages I can reveal a fuller picture of myself during these years, then so be it. Besides. Being shot up the arse. In front of your mates. What else did I forget?
The first hilarious volume of comedy writer, journalist, radio DJ and screenwriter Danny Baker's memoir, and now the inspiration for the major BBC series CRADLE TO GRAVE, starring Peter Kay. 'And what was our life like in this noisy, dangerous and polluted industrial pock-mark wedged into one of the capital's toughest neighbourhoods? It was, of course, utterly magnificent and I'd give anything to climb inside it again for just one day.' In the first volume of his memoirs, Danny Baker brings his early years to life as only he knows how. With his trademark humour and eye for a killer anecdote, he takes us all the way from the council house in south-east London that he shared with his mum Betty and dad 'Spud' (played by Peter Kay) to the music-biz excesses of Los Angeles, where he famously interviewed Michael Jackson for the NME. Laugh-out-loud funny, it is also an affectionate but unsentimental hymn to a bygone era.
The Pearls kept silent; if not for their sake, for the sake of the family. However, there was one Pearl different from the rest. She began to talk more, ask questions. She began looking at other relationships—how they worked outside the confines, guidance, and support like the Elders. She found out secrets. She exposed behaviors by befriending women outside of the family. She changed; some say she turned her back. There was no doubt that the lives of the Pearls would never be the same. Latrika can't go on living the life she had led for so many years. She can't keep to herself anymore. She can't hold back. She needs help. She's getting a divorce from a man that the Elders had approved of, even if he did cheat on her with multiple women. Her friend Blair crosses the line and schedules Latrika an appointment with a therapist. Begrudgingly, Latrika goes to the appointment, but it's not like what she thought it was going to be. Her mind is opened, and memories that she struggled to forget surge to the surface. Family secrets, betrayals of her heart, and life-changing mistakes Latrika made in her adolescence swirl around her mind. Latrika is not so sure she's ready or willing to deal with everything, and she looks to alcohol to numb her pain. Will Latrika choose to deal with the pain, or will she order another Appletini? Can she survive without the aid and approval of the Elders? Will she be stripped of her title of a Pearl?
Highly secret intelligence gathered by 'Orca', a special operations group under the brilliant command of Captain Alexander Barr, points to a significant change in strategy on the part of the German High Command.

But before he can get his audacious plans under way the entire Home Fleet is caught up in its vengeful search for the 'Bismarck'. It is their chance to sink one of Germany's finest ships, to avenge the sinking of the 'Hood' and to, quite possibly, change the course of history. His endeavours take him and his elite force north into the treacherous waters of the Arctic where ice, cold and the might of the enemy combine to test his talents to the full.

Anyone who ever served in the military can tell a similar story. The circumstances change and the names are different, but when you deal with young soldiers anything is probable. Hill tells the reader about many of these young men and women in some very funny situations. He also details what it is like to be the commander of a unit with 200 or more of these soldiers, in peacetime and in war. In telling the story of his long and varied career, he offers some real leadership gems that carry over to industry. As one observer quipped, every Lieutenant should read this book before spending a day with troops; he will either resign his commission or stay in the military until they kick him out. The author refers to the family members of military members as the real heroes in the military. You will gain a whole new appreciation of what it is like to be an Army spouse. Hill and his wife, Carla, moved 16 times during his 24 year career. Once children came along, it meant new adventures, along with new schools and new friends. The term Army Brat is worn with pride, but it is a title that is hard earned. One knows that military families are nomads, but the author explains how assignments happen and the consequences of decisions on careers and promotion. He tells the reader about dealing with the ubiquitous assignment offi cer. The citizen who has never been around the military will learn a great deal about the inner workings of the career Army Officer and those who support them. You will laugh out loud at some of these tales and cry when you learn about the sacrifices these soldiers and the families make. You will swell with pride when you hear how some of these men respond from unspeakable adversity. Hill is unabashedly proud of all veterans and as the title states, he is proud of his many years of serviceHe is Proud of What he wasA soldier.

If someone asked, "Are you a fan of Jesus?", how would you answer? You attend every movie featuring a certain actor, you know the stats of your sports hero, and can recite each lyric from your favorite band. In short, you're a huge fan. But are you treating Jesus the same as the other people you admire? The truth is, Jesus wants more than the church attendance, occasional prayer, and the ability to recite Scripture—the fan response. He's looking for people who are actually willing to sacrifice in order to follow him. In this student edition of Not a Fan, Kyle Idleman uses humor, personal stories, and biblical truth as he challenges you to look at what it means to call yourself a Christian, and what it means to follow the radical call Jesus presents. So will you be a fan, or a follower?
