MY LIFE SO FAR (originally published as SON OF ADAM) is the story of the life of a small boy from his earliest childhood to the age of fourteen, at his family home in Dumfriesshire. The boy was Sir Denis Forman, the former chairman of Granada Television and of the Royal Opera Board; the house was Craigielands, a beautiful Palladian mansion set in wooded parkland beside a lake and teeming with a rich variety of characters whom Denis Forman brings vividly to life. These memoirs also describe the germination of his two main interests: entertaining an audience, and music. The first was to lead him - after service in World War Two - into films and television, culminating in CORONATION STREET and THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN. The second gave rise to his involvement with the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.

'There are always regrets in life, among them things we've done that we wish we could take back and erase. I have significant ones that will haunt me forever and which I hope I have been brave enough to confront in this book' Jane Fonda in the preface to My Life So Far. Now in her 60s, Fonda looks back over her life but also forward to the future. With unflinching honesty she addresses, amongst other things, her tragic and tortured relationships with her mother and father; her lovers and husbands, from Roger Vadim to Ted Turner; her passions and political views. The result is rare in its readability and sheer page-turning force. This is a powerful account of an extraordinary woman.

At last Betty Friedan herself speaks about her life and career. With the same unsparing frankness that made The Feminine Mystique one of the most influential books of our era, Friedan looks back and tells us what it took -- and what it cost -- to change the world. Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique, published in 1963, started the women's movement it sold more than four million copies and was recently named one of the one hundred most important books of the century. In Life So Far, Friedan takes us on an intimate journey through her life -- a lonely childhood in Peoria, Illinois salvation at Smith College her days as a labor reporter for a union newspaper in New York (from which she was dismissed when she became pregnant) unfulfilling and painful years as a suburban housewife finding great joy as a mother and writing The Feminine Mystique, which grew out of a survey of her Smith classmates and started it all. Friedan chronicles the secret underground of women in Washington, D.C., who drafted her in the early 1960s to spearhead an "NAACP" for women, and recounts the courage of many, including some Catholic nuns who played a brave part in those early days of NOW, the National Organization for Women. Friedan's feminist thinking, a philosophy of evolution, is reflected throughout her book. She recognized early that the women's movement would falter if institutions did not change to reflect the new realities of women's lives, and she fought to keep the movement practical and free of extremism, including "man-hating." She describes candidly the movement's political infighting that brought her to the point of legal action and resulted in a long breach with fellow leaders Gloria Steinem and Bella Abzug. Friedan is frank about her twenty-two-year marriage to Carl Friedan, an advertising entrepreneur. She writes about the explosive cycle of drinking, arguing, and physical battering she endured and explores her prolonged inability to leave the marriage. (They are now friends and the grandparents of nine.) Friedan was not only pivotal in the founding of NOW, she was also the driving force behind the creation of the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League (NARAL), the National Women's Political Caucus (NWPC), and the First Women's Bank and Trust Company. She made history by introducing the issue of sex discrimination as an argument against the ratification of a Supreme Court nominee. She convinced the Secretary General of the United Nations to declare 1975 the International Year of the Woman. In this volume, Friedan brings to extraordinary life her bold and contentious leadership in the movement. She lectures, writes, leads think tanks, and organizes women and men to work together in political, legal, and social battles on behalf of women's rights.--From publisher description.

Unstoppable

From Maria Sharapova, one of our fiercest female athletes, the captivating—and candid—story of her rise from nowhere to tennis stardom, and the unending fight to stay on top. In 2004, in a stunning upset against the two-time defending champion Serena Williams, seventeen-year-old Maria Sharapova won Wimbledon, becoming an overnight sensation. Out of virtual anonymity, she launched herself onto the international stage. “Maria Mania” was born. Sharapova became a name and face recognizable worldwide. Her success would last: she went on to hold the number-one WTA ranking multiple times, to win four more Grand Slam tournaments, and to become one of the highest-grossing female athletes in the world. And then—at perhaps the peak of her career—Sharapova came up against the toughest challenge yet: during the 2016 Australian Open, she was charged by the ITF with taking the banned substance meldonium, only recently added to the ITF’s list. The resulting suspension would keep her off the professional courts for fifteen months—a frighteningly long time for any athlete. The media suggested it might be fateful. But Sharapova’s career has always been driven by her determination and by her dedication to hard work. Her story doesn’t begin with the 2004 Wimbledon championship, but years before, in a small Russian town, where as a five-year-old she played on drab neighborhood courts with precocious concentration. It begins when her father, convinced his daughter could be a star, risked everything to get them to Florida, that sacred land of tennis academies. It begins when the two arrived with only seven hundred dollars and knowing only a few words of English. From that, Sharapova scraped together one of the most influential sports careers in history. Here, for the first time, is the whole story, and in her own words. Sharapova’s is an unforgettable saga of dedication and fortune. She brings us inside her pivotal matches and illuminates the relationships that have shaped her—with coaches, best friends, boyfriends, and Yuri, her coach, manager, father, and most dedicated fan, describing with honesty and affection their oft-scrutinized relationship. She writes frankly about the suspension. As Sharapova returns to the professional circuit, one thing is clear: the ambition to win that drove her from the public courts of Russia to the manicured lawns of Wimbledon has not diminished. Sharapova’s Unstoppable is a powerful memoir, resonant in its depiction of the will to win—whatever the odds.

It's really not an amazing life - not at all. But somehow or other I've had more than ninety years to enjoy it. I've seen the world change and change again - sometimes so much I barely recognize it at all. Even when I'm talking to grandchildren and great-grandchildren that grew up in the same country that I did - in the same state, the same county that I came from ... sometimes I feel like I'm reporting from some distant planet, from a lost world. Maybe I am. But the things I've seen along the way are worth remembering, and the lessons I've learned are worth teaching to the young ones. That's why I wanted to write this book: to remember and to teach. So let's get started ...

Having fought attempts to turn her into a mini-me pop starlett in book one, Holly finds herself subjected to her mother's egomaniac schemes once again. Plucked from life and friends in London, Holly is transplanted to a 'designer' but far-from-homely penthouse in New York (the convenient epicentre for her mother's music tour). Holly is not impressed. But then when she starts to take stock of her situation, Holly realises it may not be as entirely awful as she first thought: she'll be able to see more of her dad who also lives in Manhattan, it should (officially) be the start of the summer holidays, and there's always a chance that teenage boys in New York will be more enlightened to her charms than boys in England . . . If she can find a way to get rid of her personal tutor, give her bodyguard the slip, and keep her mother from coming up with any new crazy schemes in the immediate future (no easy job), then maybe things could even start to be fun . . .
