Born to a poor family in Arkansas, Robert Dedman formed his life goal at the age of eighteen -- he would make $50 million by the age of 50 and give $1 million a year to charity. Now 72, Dedman has achieved his goal...and much, much more. Today, Robert Dedman is one of the most successful developers in the private dub industry. Billionaire philanthropist and chairman of Club Corporation International, he has given more than $26 million to Texas and Florida universities. His "three-in-one" golf club concept has earned ClubCorp assets worth more than $3 billion, averaging revenues of $1.2 billion a year. But Dedman is about more than money and golf courses. His personal ideals and philosophies are molded by his studies of classical poetry, Browning, Shakespeare and Kipling. And his philanthropic nature and healthy lifestyle have been influenced by his desire to be a well-balanced person. While Dedman may seek material success, his primary goal is richness in life. King of Clubs is a candid and revealing account of how life is worth more than a bank balance, how true wealth is a matter of Spirit.

What ho! A new Jeeves and Wooster novel that is "impossible to read without grinning idiotically" (Evening Standard), penned in homage to P.G. Wodehouse by bestselling author Ben Schott -- in which literature's favorite master and servant become spies for the English Crown. The misadventures of Bertie Wooster and his incomparable personal gentleman, Jeeves, have delighted audiences for nearly a century. Now bestselling author Ben Schott brings this odd couple back to life in a madcap new adventure full of the hijinks, entanglements, imbroglios, and Wodehousian wordplay that readers love. In this latest uproarious adventure, the Junior Ganymede Club (an association of England's finest butlers and valets) is revealed to be an elite arm of the British secret service. Jeeves must ferret out a Fascist spy embedded in the highest social circles, and only his hapless employer, Bertie, can help. Unfolding in the background are school-chum capers, affairs of the heart, antics with aunts, and sartorial set-tos. Energized by Schott's effervescent prose, and fully authorized by the Wodehouse Estate, JEEVES AND THE KING OF CLUBS is a delight for lifelong fans and the perfect introduction to two of fiction's most beloved comic characters.

Peter Stringfellow is the most famous nightclub owner in the world, proprietor of Stringfellow's in London's West End and many more. His life story is not only a classic rags-to-riches tale but one which documents the rise and fall of every musical trend since popular music began. He was born to the sound of falling German bombs in 1940 and built his dreams out of the rubble of the Sheffield blitz. He has survived two divorces, the New York mafia and bankruptcy, and this biography is peppered with anecdotes about the rich and famous. Forthright and humorous, it recounts how a steelworker's son ended up with his name in lights on both sides of the Atlantic.
