The Growing Pains of Adrian Mole is the second book in Sue Townsend's brilliantly funny Adrian Mole series. Sunday July 18th My father announced at breakfast that he is going to have a vasectomy. I pushed my sausages away untouched. In this second instalment of teenager Adrian Mole's diaries, the Mole family is in crisis and the country is beating the drum of war. While his parents have reconciled after both embarked on disastrous affairs, Adrian is shocked to learn of his mother's pregnancy. And even though at the mercy of his rampant hormones and the fickle whims of the divine Pandora, a victim of a broken home and his own tortured (though unrecognised) genius, Adrian continues valiantly to chronicle the pains and pleasures of a misspent adolescence. Bestselling author Sue Townsend has been Britain's favourite comic writer for over three decades. 'Funny, moving and a poke in the eye for adult morality' Sunday Express 'Written with great verve, and showing an uncanny understanding of the young, Sue Townsend holds the balance between innocence and precocity and the result is both hilarious and salutary' Daily Telegraph 'Life's no fun for an adolescent intellectual. For the reader it's a hoot' New Statesman Sue Townsend is one of Britain's favourite comic authors. Her hugely successful novels include eight Adrian Mole books, The Public Confessions of a Middle-Aged Woman (Aged 553⁄4), Number Ten, Ghost Children, The Queen and I, Queen Camilla and The Woman Who Went to Bed for a Year, all of which are highly-acclaimed bestsellers. Sue passed away in 2014 and is survived by her husband, four children, ten grandchildren and millions of avid readers.

Pflichtlektüre für alle Firmenlenker: Donald Keough, Ex-Coca-Cola-Chef und graue Eminenz des Topp-Business, gibt praxiserprobte Tipps, wie man ein Unternehmen mit Sicherheit ruiniert. Wenn Donald Keough, der charismatische Ex-Coca-Cola-Chef, über Business-Strategien doziert, hängen illustre „Kollegen“ wie Warren Buffet und Bill Gates an seinen Lippen. Trotzdem ist er skeptisch genug, nicht an ein ultimatives Rezept für den Unternehmenserfolg zu glauben. Was er seinen Lesern aber mit absoluter Sicherheit an die Hand geben kann, ist die Anleitung, wie man verliert: praxiserprobte Fehler, mit denen es schon so manchem Manager gelang, sein Unternehmen zu ruinieren, illustriert an zahlreichen Fallgeschichten. In den „10 Geboten“ spricht er u.a. über Flexibilität, Unfehlbarkeit, Risiken, Bürokratie oder Zunkunftsängste. Keough führt seine Leser mit augenzwinkernder Lebensklugheit an die Klippen der Unternehmensführung bzw. zu den Fehlern, die man besser erkennen und vermeiden sollte, wenn man Erfolg haben und behalten möchte. Seine Regeln sind einfach zu verstehen, seine Sprache ist erfrischend wie Cherry Coke, so dass auch diejenigen Leser davon profitieren können, die zufällig nicht gerade einem Weltkonzern vorstehen. Denn die Mechanismen des Erfolgs ähneln sich auf allen Ebenen der Macht. • Donald Keough ist einer der ganz großen, charismatischen Wirtschaftstycoons • Messerscharfe Analyse, pointiert und knapp auf den Punkt gebracht

*** AS READ ON BBC RADIO 4'S BOOK AT BEDTIME BY HARRY MCENTIRE *** 'A classic. The Adrian Mole diaries are thoroughly subversive. A true hero for our time' Richard Ingrams The FOURTH BOOK in Adrian Mole's diaries, where we catch up with a hapless Adrian and his desperate attempts to win back the love of his life. --------------------------- Thursday January 3rd I have the most terrible problems with my sex life. It all boils down to the fact that I have no sex life. At least not with another person. Finally given the heave-ho by Pandora, Adrian Mole finds himself in the unenviable situation of living with the love-of-his-life as she goes about shacking up with other men. Worse, as he slides down the employment ladder, from deskbound civil servant in Oxford to part-time washer-upper in Soho, he finds that critical reception for his epic novel, Lo! The Flat Hills of My Homeland, is not quite as he might have hoped. But Adrian is about to discover that extraordinary and wonderful things may blossom even in the wilderness . . . 'A very, very funny book' Sunday Times 'The funniest person in the world' Caitlin Moran

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

'The funniest person in the world' Caitlin Moran Celebrate Adrian Mole's 50th Birthday with this new edition of the FIFTH BOOK in his diaries, where Adrian faces divorce, fatherhood and (short-lived) television stardom. --------------------------- Wednesday August 13th Here I am again - in my old bedroom. Older, wiser, but with less hair, unfortunately. The atmosphere in this house is very bad. The dog looks permanently exhausted. Every time the phone rings my mother snatches it up as though a kidnapper were on the line. Adrian Mole is thirty, single and a father. His cooking at a top London restaurant has been equally mocked ('the sausage on my plate could have been a turd') and celebrated (will he be the nation's first celebrity offal chef?). And the love of his life, Pandora Braithwaite, is too busy as the newly elected MP for Ashby-de-la-Zouch to notice him. Frustrated, disappointed and undersexed, Adrian despairs until a letter from his past changes everything . . . 'With the Mole books, Townsend has an unrivalled claim to be this country's foremost practising comic novelist' Mail on Sunday 'Adrian Mole really is a brilliant comic creation. Every sentence is witty and well thought out, and the whole has reverberations beyond itself' The Times 'One of the greatest comic creations. I can't remember a more relentlessly funny book' Daily Mirror 'Three cheers for Mole's chaotic, non-achieving, dysfunctional family. We need him' Evening Standard

'The funniest person in the world' Caitlin Moran Celebrate Adrian Mole's 50th Birthday with this new edition of the SEVENTH BOOK in his diaries where Adrian falls in love, is inconvenienced by the war and faces his new nemesis: a swan from the local canal. --------------------------- Wednesday April 2nd My birthday. I am thirty-five today. I am officially middle-aged. It is all downhill from now. A pathetic slide towards gum disease, wheelchair ramps and death. Adrian Mole is middle-aged but still scribbling. Working as a bookseller and living in Leicester's Rat Wharf; finding time to write letters of advice to Tim Henman and Tony Blair; locked in mortal combat with a vicious swan called Gielgud; measuring his expanding bald spot; and trying to win-over the voluptuous Daisy . . . Adrian yearns for a better more meaningful world. But he's not ready to surrender his pen yet... Bestselling author Sue Townsend has been Britain's favourite comic writer for over three decades. 'Hilarious. Deft, gleeful mockery impales modish fads, from home make-overs to new-age crazes, while fiercer irony is trained on the country's involvement with Iraq' Sunday Times 'Richly comic ... stuffed full of humour, tragedy, vanity, pathos and, very occasionally, wisdom' Guardian 'Completely hilarious, laugh-out-loud, a joy' Daily Mirror
