Forget the wannabes. Discount the twenty-something reality-TV stars. Here, for a change, is the story of someone who´s actually lived a life... and it makes for one hell of a listen. Almost a Celebrity is the no-holds-barred autobiography of radio megastar James Whale, a man who, for over 30 years, has never been afraid to say the unsayable. Written (and now spoken) in his typically deadpan style, Almost a Celebrity charts James´ rise to the top – with plenty of trademark rants along the way – from his Surrey childhood, where he avoided school by hanging out in Soho strip joints, through his humble beginnings in local radio, via the eponymous TV which made his name, to his current status as late-night king of the airwaves. Whether discussing his encounters with celebrities or his involvement in tabloid scandals, the book is crammed with extraordinarily frank revelations. There are also unexpected twists: James´ former career as an international spy and a dark family saga that brought him into contact with a hit man. Yet James is no stranger to controversy. His outspoken opinions have led to numerous TV and radio watchdog enquiries, death threats, and even his arrest. In 2000, he confronted his toughest opponent so far when he was diagnosed with cancer and given only months to live. An inspiration to millions, James Whale is a genuine man of the people. And – as usual – there´s no stopping him from telling his story in his own engaging, inimitable way. Although slightly abridged, this audio edition contains brand new asides and off-the-cuff additions from James in the studio – nothing less than you´d expect from the radio master! 1.

Groupon’s Biggest Deal Ever is the exclusive, behind-the-scenes account of the incredible rise of discount coupon giant Groupon and the compelling story of its offbeat founder, Andrew Mason, as he created a juggernaut of online commerce and ignited a consumer revolution that is disrupting how people shop all over the world. Love him for saving you 50 percent on last night’s Indian dinner or hate him for cashing in big when he could be losing millions for merchants and investors alike, Mason - Groupon’s thirtysomething founder and CEO - made an incredible gamble when he turned down Google’s $6 billion buyout offer to go it alone. The experts thought he was insane. Groupon was little more than two years old and staffed from top to bottom with twentysomethings. The wild ride couldn’t last, but Mason thought otherwise, and with dreams of a potential IPO that could be massive, he liked his odds. But did he make the right decision, or did he blow a chance to continue to grow ´´the fastest growing company in history”? Is Mason an Internet genius, or is he sitting on another bubble that could burst at any moment? While everyone has an opinion on Groupon, Frank Sennett has written the only inside account. With exclusive access, interviews, and documents that no one outside of the company has seen or been able to report on, Groupon’s Biggest Deal Ever has every twist and turn from start-up to IPO and is the real story of Mason’s audacious gamble and the meteoric rise of Groupon from start-up to $16.7 billion online giant. 1.

Bullets. Booze. Bad luck. It´s all here. These tales - best devoured with a stiff pour of bourbon - delve into the dark underworld of drifters, gangsters, wannabe hoods, and small-town folks in slippery situations. Written in terse and urgent prose, these stories cling to the edge of reason and peer into the dark abyss that is human deviance. Here´s a taste of what you´ll find in Tough Guys, an entertaining collection of thrilling stories: ´´Apprentice´´: Ronnie might be a truck driver, but he´s something else too - a hit man. ´´Room Number Six´´: Frank just got out of prison, and he´s not too happy to find his wife in bed with a prison guard. What´s he gonna do? ´´No Sé´´: Hector has been a gangster his whole life. He´s rock hard. But this hard-hearted gangster just met his match - a six-year-old girl named Charlotte. ´´Last Shift´´: Everybody has a breaking point. For Sandy, a waitress at an all-night diner, her breaking point might be tonight. A slick crook picks her up from work, but Sandy´s luck means this guy is up to no good. Will Sandy, the thin, little blonde with three-inch heels, finally snap? ´´You Ever Hear About War Dogs, Sam?´´: Hayes is a small-town kid who works at a discount store. What´s his future? The US Marine Corps. But when Hayes gets back, he´s a little bit different. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stuart Ashenbrenner.
