Jimmy Connors took the tennis world by storm like no player in the history of the game. A shaggy-haired working-class kid from the wrong side of the tracks, he was prepared to battle for every point, to shout and scream until he was heard, and he didn't care whom he upset in doing so. He was brash, he was a brat. He was a crowd-pleaser, a revolutionary. And he won more tournaments - an astonishing 109 - than any other man in history, including eight Grand Slam singles titles. Only now is Connors ready to set the record straight on what really happened on and off the court. The rivalry with John McEnroe, that frequently threatened to turn violent, with Bjorn Borg, and Ivan Lendl. His romance with Chris Evert, which made them the sweethearts of the sport. The escapades with his partner in crime, Ilie Nastase. The deep roots of the fierce determination that made him the best player on the planet. This is no genteel memoir of a pillar of the tennis establishment. Unflinching, hard-hitting, humorous and passionate, this is the story of a legend - the one and only Jimmy Connors.

Five Trophies and a Funeral: The Building and Rebuilding of Durham County Cricket Club is the story of how English cricket's youngest first-class county quickly became the country's top team, before overstretching themselves financially to the brink of extinction. When Durham joined the professional game in 1992 they aspired to be a major on-field force and a home to top international cricket. The high demands put on them as a condition of entry, together with their own lofty ambitions, pushed the club to five major trophies in seven seasons while providing England with top-quality players reared in the North East. But striving for ever more at a time of economic downturn led them to live beyond their means, and they were heavily punished for overspending that the authorities partly encouraged. Now they are looking to restore past glories under the chairmanship of Sir Ian Botham. Part fairy tale, part cautionary story, Five Trophies explains how Durham arrived where they are, and where they aim to go next.

Die Autobiografie der legendären Jazzsängerin Billie Holiday! "Man hat mir gesagt, dass niemand das Wort ›Hunger‹ so singt wie ich. Genauso das Wort ›Liebe‹. Vielleicht liegt das daran, dass ich weiß, was diese Worte bedeuten. Vielleicht liegt das daran, dass ich stolz genug bin, mich an all das erinnern zu wollen, an Baltimore und Welfare Island, das katholische Heim und das Jefferson-Gericht, an den Sheriff vor unserm Haus in Harlem und die Städte in ganz Amerika, wo ich meine Beulen und Narben abbekommen habe, Philadelphia und Alderson, Hollywood und San Francisco, an jede Kleinigkeit. Alle Cadillacs und Nerze der Welt - und ich hatte von beiden schon einige - können das nicht aufwiegen oder vergessen machen. Alles was ich je von den Menschen gelernt habe, liegt in diesen beiden Worten. Zuerst braucht man etwas zu essen und ein bisschen Liebe, bevor man sich die Predigt von irgendjemandem über richtiges Verhalten anhören kann. Alles, was ich bin und was ich vom Leben will, sagen diese beiden Wörter."

Vom angry young man zum Ausnahme-Unternehmer Halb Genie, halb Wahnsinniger, Guru, Choleriker und Kontrollfreak – das ist das vorherrschende Bild, das sich die Welt von Steve Jobs gemacht hat. Jobs selbst hat zu seinen Lebzeiten dieses Image gern gepflegt, und seine Biographen sind ihm bereitwillig gefolgt. Vier Jahre nach seinem Tod im Oktober 2011 ist es nun an der Zeit, ein klareres Bild des Apple-Gründers zu zeichnen, ein Bild, das frei ist von Klischees und Vorurteilen. Brent Schlender begleitete Steve Jobs über zwanzig Jahre lang, der engen Freundschaft der beiden verdanken wir tiefe Einblicke in das Leben des Unternehmers und in das Imperium von Apple. Auf Grundlage zahlreicher Gespräche mit Jobs selbst, mit engsten Vertrauten und Weggefährten wie Tim Cook oder auch Bill Gates ist ein ebenso differenziertes wie leidenschaftliches Porträt entstanden, das in seinem Kern der Frage nachgeht, wie aus einem ungestümen jungen Gründer die wichtigste Unternehmerpersönlichkeit unserer Zeit reifen konnte. Die Nähe Schlenders und das Knowhow Tetzelis – beide gehören zu den profiliertesten Technikjournalisten und zu den besten Kennern der Silicon-Valley-Szene – machen Becoming Steve Jobs zu einer mitreißenden Geschichte der Technologie-Ära und zu einer Biographie, die den Unternehmer nicht zur Ikone erhebt, sondern den Menschen hinter dem Mythos zum Vorschein bringt.
