**WINNER OF THE NME BEST BOOK AWARD** 'This book is going to try and get as close as possible to the full story of what informed the noise of The Streets. Obviously that's something I should be fairly well-qualified to know about, and I'm going to be as honest as the publisher's lawyers will allow.' With the 2001 release of The Streets' debut single 'Has It Come To This?' the landscape of British popular music changed forever. No longer did homegrown rappers have to anxiously defer to transatlantic influences. Mike Skinner's witty, self-deprecating sagas of late-night kebab shops and skunk-fuelled Playstation sessions showed how much you could achieve simply by speaking in your own voice. In this thoroughly modern memoir, the man the Guardian once dubbed 'half Dostoevsky . . . half Samuel Pepys' tells a freewheeling, funny and fearlessly honest tale of Birmingham and London, ecstasy and epilepsy, Twitter-fear and Spectrum joysticks, spread-betting and growing up. He writes of his musical inspirations, role models and rivals, the craft of songwriting and reflects on the successes and failures of the decade-long journey of The Streets.

A special enhanced edition, featuring videos and audio from Mike Skinner and a previously unreleased music track. In 2001, at the age of only 22, the virtually unknown Mike Skinner was signed for a five album record deal. Since then, Mike Skinner has won a worldwide reputation for fusing home-grown hip-hop with the proud British tradition of observational song writing, which stretches from The Beatles and The Kinks to Blur and the Arctic Monkeys. In the multi-faceted guise of The Streets he, along with the likes of his friend and peer Dizzy Rascal, has been largely responsible for giving British rap its own identity, distinct from that of its American influences. Alternating between spells of reckless indulgence and sardonic commentary on his own excesses, Mike Skinner has established the kind of instantly accessible pop persona which only comes along once or twice a generation. Now he brings us The Story of the Streets. Moving chronologically through five albums, and the different phases of his life that they represent, Mike shares personal details of his modest upbringing in Birmingham, as well as the wild extravagances of life in the showbiz fast lane. Personal, shocking and funny; but deeply intelligent, insightful, opinionated and searingly honest - this is a lesson in the making of pop history, narrated by a voice that has informed a generation.

Maggie is an astonishing novel of social realism, which parallels many of today's ills. Set in the urban squalor of New York in the 1890s, it follows the careers of the innocent Maggie and her brother Jimmie, children of brutal and drunken parents. It is a tour-de-force equal to The Red Badge of Courage.

PETE GREIG, 24-7 PRAYER & ALPHA INTERNATIONAL: "Mark's message deserves to be heard. I defy you to read this book without shaking your head in amazement, without muttering 'Wow!', without hatching your own plans to step into the impossible wherever you live." DANIELLE STRICKLAND, SPEAKER, AUTHOR: "Wow! Buckle up and strap yourself in for an adventure ride filled with the highs and lows of a life surrendered to Jesus." KATHRYN SCOTT, WORSHIP LEADER/SONGWRITER: "The beautiful and powerful story of how Healing on the Streets came to be, and how you too can partner with the Holy Spirit as He broods over your city, your town, your neighbourhood - the mission field right within your reach." SIMON PONSONBY, PASTOR OF THEOLOGY, ST ALDATES, OXFORD: "I can think of few Christians in this generation who have done more to equip the saints than Mark Marx.

You will really enjoy reading this book! At one level, it’s the story of how God has used one man to share the Good News of Jesus in all sorts of unlikely places and with all sorts of unlikely people. But there’s more to it than that. Get ready for the Holy Spirit to encourage and equip you! Lindsay uses personal stories as a vehicle to teach some great truths about evangelism. In a non-condemnatory way, he provokes us to ‘raise the bar’ and increase the frequency with which we reach out to lost women and men. Gary Gibbs National Evangelism Director, Elim Pentecostal Churches God personally spoke to my heart as I read this unique story of faith, vision, action and global passion. Unique, visionary, out of the box book. George Verwer OM (Operation Mobilisation)

The success story of The Big Issue is both inspirational and paradoxical; rather than a charity, it is a flourishing commercial enterprise, but one that genuinely benefits those involved. The magazine is sold by homeless and vulnerable people and, in return, they achieve financial independence and status and self-reliance. The story of the paper's development has a practical angle; it should offer help and insights to NGOs and governments involved with the homeless, or to those businesses wishing to set up enterprises for the common good.
