The Who - Biography Channel DVD
₱ 431.00
Bio’s backstage pass to one of rock’s greatest bands. Among the iconic British rock bands of the 1960s The Who set a standard for innovation. Led by Pete Townshend's writing and distinctive guitar styling, Roger Daltrey's haunting vocals and Keith Moon's percussion genius, The Who gained a global following for their on-stage instrument destruction, concept albums and rock operas. In this programme we take a trip back to the swinging 60s when The Who were the talk of London with their mod fashions and aggressive stage presence. In their fledgling days they were an unbelievable powerhouse of talent but their dynamic mix of personality is what gave The Who their power. Behind the scenes though, personal battles within the group and alcohol and drug use would hugely affect the band and their creativity. • Featuring archive clips of Townsend and Moon as well as interviews with friends, colleagues and industry insiders, this is an insightful and revealing look at one of the most legendary rock bands ever formed. • Contributions from the biggest music magazines of the time. • The Who were inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 – the first year they were eligible, a sure sign of their popularity. They have also been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame no less than three times, for Tommy, My Generation and Who’s Next, an incredible achievement for any band. Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play.

     Confucius(DVD-9)(DTSVersion)(ChinaVersion) at 350.00 PHP from YesAsia
    Confucius(DVD-9)(DTSVersion)(ChinaVersion)
    ₱ 350.00
    The great stories of Confucius (551BC-479BC) are brought to life in the 2010 epic historical film made by 5th-generation director Hu Mei and her sparkling cast and crew. Hong Kong superstar Chow Yun Fat has played heroes, gangsters, and all sorts of cool characters throughout his career, but his latest turn as the influential Chinese thinker and wise teacher may just be the pinnacle on his illustrious resume. Chow's subdued but affecting portrayal of Confucius is a breakthrough for himself, and that owes in part to his chemistry with his exceptional co-stars, including Zhou Xun (The Banquet), Lu Yi (Seven Swords), Ren Quan (Assembly), and Qiao Zhenyu (The Book and the Sword). Kudos must also be bestowed on Oscar-winning cinematographer Peter Pau (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) for bringing Chow's Confucius to life on the big screen.

    Director Hu Mei is best known for her acclaimed historical TV drama series like Yong Zheng Dynasty and The Emperor in Han Dynasty. Here, she has chosen a special angle in tackling the compelling biography of the Great Sage. Set in the chaotic and decadent world of the warring states during the Spring and Autumn Period, the film focuses on the turbulent later years of Confucius's life, specifically from his appointment to political office at 51 to his death at 73, and all the dramatic stories in between.

    Comes with cast interviews, trailer, and poster and still gallery.

    Buckley, David Elton: The Biography
    ₱ 1,297.00
    One of music’s true global superstars and most admired figures, Elton John has sold an estimated 200 million albums worldwide to date, and continues to appear regularly in the singles charts, thanks largely to a series of high-profile collaborations with new faces. But he is loved as much for his outrageous personality and witty outspokenness as for his music: recent memorable outbursts have included a public comment that “people who charge £75 and lip-sync should be shot” and calling some pushy photographers “rude, vile pigs.” He has even admitted that, in one of his more comedic cocaine-fueled moments, he phoned one of his management team “to tell him to do something about the wind outside my hotel room.” Such shamelessness and sheer silliness rivals anything uttered by punk rockers, yet it is so typically Elton: honest and wittily intemperate. Tragedy and heartbreak have played a large part in his life too. Behind the parties, the hedonism, the lavish stage costumes and silly glasses lies a more somber story. There have been disputes with managers, legal wranglings, splits with partners, and a divorce. Added to that there have been serious health problems, a very public battle with his expanding waistline and receding hairline, drug addictions, and spells when he wanted to quit the music business altogether. But now, at 60 years old, Elton enjoys a stable relationship with his husband David Furnish. His demons have been overcome. His commercial and critical stock is rising. With popular acts like the Scissor Sisters sounding more like Elton than Elton himself, Elton John is finally cool again. Drawing on many firsthand interviews with his associates and musical collaborators, this page-turning story of high drama and prodigious talent traces Elton’s astonishing journey through life as the colossus of camp, while also offering a critical history of his work and analyzing afresh his contribution to popular music.

    “The invention, or the quaint piece of furniture, wandered into our lives in the 1940s, as a primitive plaything, a clever if awkward addition to the household. It was expensive, unreliable and a bit of an invalid.” ― Television, A Biography In just a few years, what used to be an immobile piece of living room furniture, which one had to sit in front of at appointed times in order to watch sponsored programming on a finite number of channels, morphed into a glowing cloud of screens with access to a near-endless supply of content available when and how viewers want it. With this phenomenon now a common cultural theme, a writer of David Thomson’s stature delivering a critical history, or “biography” of the six-decade television era, will be a significant event which could not be more timely. With Television , the critic and film historian who wrote what Sight and Sound 's readers called “the most important film book of the last 50 years” has finally turned his unique powers of observation to the medium that has swallowed film whole. Over twenty-two thematically organized chapters, Thomson brings his provocatively insightful and unique voice to the life of what was television. David Thomson surveying a Boschian landscape, illuminated by that singular glow―always “on”―and peopled by everyone from Donna Reed to Dennis Potter, will be the first complete history of the defining medium of our time. 60+ illustrations

    Brand: Vintage Clint Eastwood: A Biography
    ₱ 1,434.00
    "Authoritative . . . highly nuanced . . . gives the reader a palpable sense of Mr. Eastwood's career." --The New York Times From the moment The Man With No Name first fixed the screen with his murderous squint, from the first time audiences heard Dirty Harry Callahan growl "Make my day;" Clint Eastwood has been an icon of American manhood in all its coolness and ferocity. But that icon is also an actor of surprising subtlety, a filmmaker of vast intelligence and originality--and an intensely private man who eludes the stereotypes with which his fans and critics try to label him. In this in-depth biography, the distinguished film critic Richard Schickel talks with Eastwood's family, friends, and colleagues--and, above all, with his notoriously reticent subject--to produce a portrait more astute and revealing than any we have ever had. Following Eastwood from his unstable childhood through his turbulent love affairs, assessing films from A Fistful of Dollars to the Oscar-winning The Unforgiven, and locating the subversive streak of rage and solitude that runs through all his work, Clint Eastwood is candid and endlessly fascinating, an unerring closeup of one of our brightest stars. "Exhilarating . . . substantial, insightful, and right." --Newsday

    Jason Kidd: The Inspiring Story of One of Basketball's Greatest Point Guards (Basketball Biography Books)
    ₱ 751.00
    Learn the Inspiring Story of the Legendary Point Guard Jason Kidd! Read on your PC, Mac, smartphone, tablet or Kindle device! In Jason Kidd: The Inspiring Story of One of Basketball's Greatest Point Guards , you will learn the inspirational story of one of basketball's premier point guards, Jason Kidd. Jason Kidd was easily one of the best point guards to play the game of basketball throughout the 2000s. With an extraordinary ability to pass the ball at precisely the right time, Kidd was like Steve Nash in that he made the teammates around him fundamentally better. Being an NBA Champion (with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011), ten-time All-Star and five-time All-NBA First Team member, Jason Kidd's passing and rebounding abilities made him feared by opponents. He corralled triple-doubles years before flashy athletic point guards like Russell Westbrook began doing so. Read on to learn Kidd’s inspiring story. Here is a preview of what is inside this book: Childhood and Early Life High School Career College Career Jason Kidd's NBA Career Getting Drafted Rookie Campaign First All-Star Season Tensions in Dallas, the Trade to Phoenix, Fresh Start with the Suns, First Playoff Appearance First Full Season with Phoenix, Igniting the Scorching Suns Shortened Season, Another First Round Exit Breaking Through to the Second Round Final Season in Phoenix The Trade to New Jersey, Reaching the NBA Finals Second Consecutive Finals Appearance Teaming Up with Vince Carter Leading a Trio with Carter and Jefferson Final Stretch in New Jersey, the Return to Dallas Contending as a Mav First and Only NBA Championship Final Season with Dallas Stop at the Big Apple, and Retirement Coaching Career USA National Basketball Team Career Personal Life Impact, Legacy, and Future An excerpt from the book: As far as ranking the top point guards in the history of the NBA is concerned, no list would be truly complete without Jason Kidd somewhere on top of all of the other playmakers the league has seen. Why not? He is an NBA champion, a 10-time All-Star, a six-time All-NBA Team member, a nine-time All-Defensive Team selection, a two-time Olympic Gold medalist, and a five-time assist leader. On paper alone you would see how valuable of a point guard Kidd was in his 19-year NBA stint. However, there were also times when he was not truly befitting of being called a historically elite point guard because of all the criticisms and shortcomings he has had as a player. He came into the league with virtually no jump shot and a very minimal offensive repertoire. He has had struggles with coaches and even, for a while, lacked the work ethic needed to be elite. And, for most of his career, he was never the leader of a championship team. But, for all those criticisms and downsides to his game, Jason Kidd was always a leader that made his other teammates great by doing everything else on the court. He always made it a point to find teammates because scoring the ball himself was never really his top priority. His ability to rebound the ball at a high level for a point guard made sure he could trigger fast-break opportunities at a quick rate. And his ability to defend every guard position earned him the reputation of being an elite defender in his prime. Kidd’s vast array of skills made him a ray of sunshine to a franchise because he always lifted his teammates up in every way possible.

    Brand: Simon n Schuster Kissinger: A Biography
    ₱ 1,710.00
    By the time Henry Kissinger was made secretary of state in 1973, he had become, according to the Gallup Poll, the most admired person in America and one of the most unlikely celebrities ever to capture the world's imagination. Yet Kissinger was also reviled by large segments of the American public, ranging from liberal intellectuals to conservative activists. Kissinger explores the relationship between this complex man's personality and the foreign policy he pursued. Drawing on extensive interviews with Kissinger as well as 150 other sources, including U.S. presidents and his business clients, this first full-length biography makes use of many of Kissinger's private papers and classified memos to tell his uniquely American story. The result is an intimate narrative, filled with surprising revelations, that takes this grandly colorful statesman from his childhood as a persecuted Jew in Nazi Germany, through his tortured relationship with Richard Nixon, to his later years as a globe-trotting business consultant.

    ₱ 1,239.00

    Room Full of Mirrors: A Biography of Jimi Hendrix
    ₱ 1,874.00
    For most people, the name Jimi Hendrix conjures up a larger-than-life image of the man who set fire to guitars, women’s hearts, and the status quo. In this groundbreaking new account of Hendrix’s life, music journalist Charles R. Cross takes a far deeper look. Beyond his legendary onstage and offstage magnetism and his excessive lifestyle, Room Full of Mirrors captures the whole man—a man who struggled to accept his role as an idol and who privately craved the kind of normal family life he never had. Based on more than three hundred interviews and never-before-seen private documents, this book recounts the entire arc of Hendrix’s life: from his troubled childhood and struggles with racial prejudice as a young musician, to his rapid ascent in swinging London, to headlining Woodstock in 1969, with his death a year later. As colorful and large as the decade of the sixties, this page-turning biography gives the real Jimi Hendrix the immortality he deserves.

    ₱ 1,239.00
    Already climbing the bestseller lists-and garnering rave reviews—this "little masterpiece" sheds brilliant light on the equation that changed the world. Bodanis begins by devoting chapters to each of the equation's letters and symbols, introducing the science and scientists forming the backdrop to Einstein's discovery—from Ole Roemer's revelation that the speed of light could be measured to Michael Faraday's pioneering work on energy fields. Having demystified the equation, Bodanis explains its science and brings it to life historically, making clear the astonishing array of discoveries and consequences it made possible. It would prove to be a beacon throughout the twentieth century, important to Ernest Rutherford, who discovered the structure of the atom, Enrico Fermi, who probed the nucleus, and Lise Meitner, who finally understood how atoms could be split wide open. And it has come to inform our daily lives, governing everything from the atomic bomb to a television's cathode-ray tube to the carbon dating of prehistoric paintings.

    Lover of His People: A Biography of Sol Plaatje
    ₱ 2,421.00
    Adopted from a manuscript that had long been housed in the Wits Historical Papers and was accessible only to scholars, editors D. S. Matjila and Karen Haire have mined the archive to produce the first English translation of Seetsele Modiri Molema’s biography, Lover of His People: Sol Plaatje . In this account, Molema balances Plaatje’s public and political persona—as a pioneer black politician and man of letters—with an intimate account, illuminating the spirit of Plaatje by painting a personal portrait of this leading South African figure and his impact on South Africa’s political and cultural landscape. In shaping this manuscript into a book, the editors and translators have included a preface that elaborates on the uniqueness of Molema’s biography, and on the relationship between these two prominent Africans and the value of this text within the broader ambit of revisioning South African historiography. Recognizing that Molema was an extraordinary scholar, intellectual, and politician in his own right, the book includes an essay on the life and legacy of Seetsele Modiri Molema and his contribution to South Africa’s black intellectual heritage.

    The Wonder of Brian Cox: The Unauthorised Biography of the Man Who Brought Science to the Nation
    ₱ 2,214.00
    Professor Brian Cox is probably the best-known physicist in the world today. As presenter of the hit television series Wonders of the Solar System and Wonders of the Universe, his affable charm and infectious enthusiasm has brought science to a whole new audience. Born in Lancashire in 1968, Cox was a bright, but not brilliant pupil at school - only receiving a D grade for A level mathematics. He flourished at university, however, gaining a first-class honours degree and an MPhil in Physics from Manchester University before being awarded his PhD in particle physics in 1998. Alongside his studies he also found time to play keyboards for the band D:Ream, and the band topped the charts in 1994 with 'Things Can Only Get Better', which was famously used by the Labour Party for its 1997 election campaign. Although he has appeared in several television shows, Brian Cox is not just a celebrity presenter - he is a Royal Society University Research Fellow, a professor at the University of Manchester, and he also works on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland. In 2010 he was awarded an OBE for his services to science, and he has also won several awards for his television work.

    Liz: An Intimate Biography of Elizabeth Taylor (updated with a new chapter)
    ₱ 2,348.00
    Elizabeth Taylor's own story was more dramatic than any part she ever played on the screen. C. David Heymann brings her magnificently to life in this acclaimed biography--updated with a new chapter covering her final years. She was an icon, one of the most watched, photographed, and gossiped-about personalities of our time. Child star, daughter of a controlling stage mother, Oscar-winning actress, seductress and eight-time wife, mother of four children and grandmother of ten, champion of funding for AIDS research, purveyor of perfumes and jewelry, close friend of celebrities and tycoons—Elizabeth Taylor, for almost eight decades, played most completely, beautifully, cunningly, flamboyantly, and scandalously her greatest role of all: herself. The basis of an Emmy Award-nominated miniseries, Liz portrays Taylor’s life and career in fascinating, revealing detail and includes an additional new chapter, bringing her beloved fans up to date on her final years. By way of more than a thousand interviews with stars, directors, producers, designers, friends, family, business associates, and employees and through extensive research among previously disclosed court, business, medical, and studio documents, bestselling author Heymann reminds readers of her very public escapades and unveils her most private moments. Here are the highs and lows of her film career and the intimate circumstances of her marriages to Nicky Hilton, Michael Wilding, Mike Todd, Eddie Fisher, Richard Burton, Senator John Warner, and Larry Fortensky. Here, too, is the truth about Taylor’s father and her friendships with leading men Montgomery Clift, James Dean, and Rock Hudson, as well as with the eccentric Malcolm Forbes and Michael Jackson. From her illnesses, injuries, weight issues, and battles against drug and alcohol, to her sexual exploits, diamond-studded adventures, and tumultuous love affairs, this is the enormously contradictory and glamorous life of Hollywood’s last great star.

Reintroducing the flowing, ankle-length skirt, Dior gave women back their long-lost sense of freedom, femininity, and joie de vivre. Dior's collection with its pinched waste and generous folds of fabric, was dubbed the New Look by the press, especially the American fashion journalists. Dior was crowned The King of Fashion, and he immediately reestablished Paris as the center of the fashion world. With elegance, precision, and impeccable research, Marie- France Pochna recreates this one-of-a-kind world of glamour and luxury and situates Dior's fairy-tale career in the rich tapestry of Paris cultural life.

    Benedict Cumberbatch, In Transition: An Unauthorised Performance Biography
    ₱ 1,323.00
    Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, War Horse, Star Trek: Into Darkness, The Hobbit trilogy, Twelve Years a Slave, August: Osage County, The Fifth Estate Hedda Gabler, After the Dance, Frankenstein Hawking, To the Ends of the Earth, The Last Enemy, Parade's End, and, of course, Sherlock. For most actors, these stellar cinematic, theatrical, and television events would be the highlights of a lifetime's work. On Benedict Cumberbatch's résumé they are only a few of many entries. Especially since 2010, his performances have garnered a plethora of best actor awards, both in the theatre (Evening Standard Theatre Award, Critics Circle Theatre Award, and Olivier Award), by playing the dual roles of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature in the National Theatre's Frankenstein, and on television (Broadcasting Press Guild Award, Critics Choice Television Award, Crime Thriller Award, and TV Choice Award), by starring as the titular Holmes in the BBC's Sherlock. Add these and other recent accolades to nearly a decade s nominations and awards (such as the Golden Nymph as best actor in Hawking), and it's easy to see why Benedict Cumberbatch is often hailed as the actor of his generation. Cumberbatch's body of work further includes indie films, radio plays and series, television documentaries, live dramatic readings, multimedia advertisements, and even the occasional stint as a fashion model. He often shares an intriguing perspective on his profession, as evidenced in sometimes controversial interviews. He has become so much in demand that online box offices crash when tickets for his performances go on sale, and, before a Cheltenham Literature Festival Q&A session, fans overwhelmed Twitter when so many responded immediately to a call for questions. Cumberbatch consistently is a top name on lists ranging from sex appeal to global influence. In 2012 he beat David Beckham in the former and U.S. President Barack Obama in the latter. Increasingly, part of Cumberbatch's job involves the role of celebrity. Benedict Cumberbatch is at a pivotal point in his profession, and his career trajectory especially as documented in entertainment media permits a closer examination of just what it means to be a celebrity or star in Britain or the U.S. and how an actor may be perceived very differently in London or Hollywood. This performance biography is an analysis of a man in transition from working actor to multimedia star, as well as the balance between actor and celebrity. It looks at what makes this actor so well suited to play one of popular culture's iconic characters, Sherlock Holmes, and how Sherlock is so well suited to propel Cumberbatch toward greater global fame.

    A Life Awheel: The 'auto' biography of W de Forte
    ₱ 1,809.00
    Born in Shropshire soon after the end of the First World War, venerable motoring writer W de Forte has driven everything from his grandfather's first Daimler, to modern-day supercars ... ridden everything from vertiginous Victorian penny farthings, to high velocity twenty-first century superbikes ... travelled everywhere from the permafrost of the Arctic Circle to the baking sands of the Baja Peninsula ... and met everyone from Tazio Nuvolari to Valentino Rossi. W de Forte enjoyed an eventful career as a top-level journalist, spanning 75 years, during which time he tested many thousands of cars and reported on countless automotive events around the world. This made him uniquely qualified to comment on all aspects of classic and vintage motoring and motorcycling. Relatively undimmed by age and ague, even in his mid-90s, de Forte had no plans to retire, but, in late 2014, a high-speed prang while testing a wayward Rudge Ulster at a racing circuit in Belgium brought him up with a jolt, both literally and metaphorically. After recuperating in hospital, he settled down to write his long-awaited and much requested auto-biography. This unique and insightful book is the result. Packed with fascinating stories about classic cars and motorcycles, A Life Awheel - the 'Auto' Biography of W de Forte is an account of an extraordinary motoring life, and the story of motoring in the 20th century.

Born in Liverpool as the son of a bus conductor and a shop assistant, for the first six years of his life he lived in a house with no indoor bathroom. This book gives an honest, in-depth view of his personal journey from his blue-collar childhood to his role as a world-famous spiritual icon. Author Gary Tillery's approach is warmly human, free of the fawning but insolent tone of most rock biographers. He frankly discusses the role of drugs in leading Harrison to mystical insight but emphasizes that he soon renounced psychedelics as a means to the spiritual path. It was with conscious commitment that Harrison journeyed to India, studied sitar with Ravi Shankar, practiced yoga, learned meditation from the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, and became a devotee of Hinduism. George worked hard to subdue his own ego and to understand the truth beyond appearances. He preferred to keep a low profile, but his empathy for suffering people led him to spearhead the first rock-and-roll super event for charity. And despite his wealth and fame, he was always delighted to slip on overalls and join in manual labor on his grounds. At ease with holy men discussing the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita, he was ever the bloke from Liverpool whose father drove a bus, whose brothers were tradesmen, and who had worked himself as an apprentice electrician until the day destiny called. Tillery's engaging narrative depicts Harrison as a sincere seeker who acted out of genuine care for humanity and used his celebrity to be of service in the world. Fans of all generations will treasure this book for the inspiring portrayal it gives of their beloved "quiet" Beatle.

    Long Promised Road: Carl Wilson, Soul of the Beach Boys The Biography
    ₱ 1,499.00
    No life in popular music touched on as many major musical milestones as that of The Beach Boys' Carl Wilson. While he is often unjustly overlooked as a mere adjunct to his more famous brothers Brian and Dennis, Carl was a major international rock star from his early teens. The proud owner of one of the greatest voices in popular music--one that graced some of the most important records of the pop era, including 'God Only Knows' and 'Good Vibrations'--Wilson was also one of the first musicians to bring the electric guitar to the forefront of rock'n'roll. His musical skills provided The Beach Boys' entree into the music business, from which he then stewarded their onstage journey through the ups and downs of the 60s to their comeback in the 70s and into the role of 'America's band' in the 80s. Along the way, Carl quietly endured his own battles with obesity, divorce, substance abuse, and ultimately terminal cancer, all the while working to protect his family's business and legacy. This major new biography reveals the true story of modern rock'n'roll, lived from the center of the most important decades of popular music.

    Enter Night: A Biography of Metallica
    ₱ 1,471.00
    Sprung from the roots of 70s hard rock, Metallica defined the look and sound of 1980s heavy metal, just as Led Zeppelin had for hard rock and the Sex Pistols for punk before them. Inventors of thrash metal―Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth followed―it was always Metallica who led the way, who pushed to another level, who became the last of the superstar rockers. Though plagued by adversities, including the death of their bassist in a bus crash, infighting and substance abuse, they survived to became the biggest-selling band in the world. With 100 million records sold worldwide, their music has extended its reach beyond rock and metal, and into the pop mainstream, as they went from speed metal to MTV with their hit single "Enter Sandman". Until now there hasn't been a critical, authoritative, in-depth portrait of the band. Mick Wall's thoroughly researched, insightful work is enriched by his interviews with band members, record company execs, roadies, and fellow musicians. He tells the story of how a tennis-playing, music-loving Danish immigrant named Lars Ulrich created a band with singer James Hetfield and made his dreams a reality. Enter Night delves into the various incarnations of the band, and the personalities of all key members, past and present―especially Ulrich and Hetfield―to produce the definitive word on the biggest metal band on the planet

    A big, brash history of Guns n' Roses charismatic, talented and idiosyncratic leader "An archetypal rock biography that captures the runaway-train spirit of the singer and his band―You don't have to be a Guns N' Roses fanatic to dig this energetic, comprehensive, few-holds-barred portrait of modern metal's most charismatic figure."― Kirkus Reviews Even in the rock world, a figure like Axl Rose doesn't come along very often. Mercurial and brilliant, deluded and imperious, Rose defies easy description. W.A.R. reveals Rose's childhood influences (and how he got his name), tracks the birth of G n' R and delves into the stories behind their monster albums Appetite for Destruction and Use Your Illusion . But with those successes came excesses―drugs, infighting and a lead singer who morphed from eccentric to seemingly unhinged. Journalist Mick Wall had unprecedented access to Rose and G n' R during their heyday and gives a more richly detailed portrait of the band than you've ever read before. W.A.R. has fresh views on: --the death of two fans at the Donington Park concert in England --Rose's fallout with all the other original G n' R band members, including Slash --fights with Kurt Cobain, Vince Neil and fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger --Rose's no-shows at concerts throughout his career --the lead singer's becoming a recluse at his Malibu mansion for most of the last fifteen years --the much-gossiped-about and long-awaited album Chinese Democracy

    First Son: The Biography of Richard M. Daley
    ₱ 2,237.00
    "Mayor Richard M. Daley dropped the bomb at a routine news conference at City Hall on Tuesday. With no prelude or fanfare, Mr. Daley announced that he would not seek re-election when his term expires next year. 'Simply put, it's time,' he said." New York Times, September 7, 2010 With those four words, an era ended. After twenty-two years, the longest-serving and most powerful mayor in the history of Chicago—and, arguably, America—stepped down, leaving behind a city that was utterly transformed, and a complicated legacy we are only beginning to evaluate. In First Son , Keith Koeneman chronicles the sometimes Shakespearean, sometimes Machiavellian life of an American political legend. Making deft use of unprecedented access to key players in the Daley administration, as well as Chicago's business and cultural leaders, Koeneman draws on more than one hundred interviews to tell an up-close, insider story of political triumph and personal evolution. With Koeneman as our guide, we follow young Daley from his beginnings as an average Bridgeport kid thought to lack his father's talent and charisma to his unlikely transformation into an iron-fisted leader. Daley not only escaped the giant shadow of his father but also transformed Chicago from a gritty, post-industrial Midwestern capital into a beautiful, sophisticated global city widely recognized as a model for innovative metropolises throughout the world. But in spite of his many accomplishments, Richard M. Daley's record is far from flawless. First Son sets the dramatic improvement of certain parts of the city against the persistent realities of crime, financial stress , failing public housing, and dysfunctional schools. And it reveals that while in many ways Daley broke with the machine politics of his father, he continued to reward loyalty with favors, use the resources of city government to overwhelm opponents, and tolerate political corruption. A nuanced portrait of a complex man, First Son shows Daley to be sensitive yet tough, impatient yet persistent, a street-smart fighter and detail-driven policy expert who not only ran Chicago, but was Chicago.

    Mr. Clemens and Mark Twain: A Biography
    ₱ 1,427.00
    Mark Twain, the American comic genius who portrayed, named, and in part exemplified America’s “Gilded Age,” comes alive in Justin Kaplan’s extraordinary biography. With brilliant immediacy, Mr. Clemens and Mark Twain brings to life a towering literary figure whose dual persona symbolized the emerging American conflict between down-to-earth morality and freewheeling ambition. As Mark Twain, he was the Mississippi riverboat pilot, the satirist with a fiery hatred of pretension, and the author of such classics as Tom Sawyer andHuckleberry Finn. As Mr. Clemens, he was the star who married an heiress, built a palatial estate, threw away fortunes on harebrained financial schemes, and lived the extravagant life that Mark Twain despised. Kaplan effectively portrays the triumphant-tragic man whose achievements and failures, laughter and anger, reflect a crucial generation in our past as well as his own dark, divided, and remarkably contemporary spirit. Mr. Clemens and Mark Twain brilliantly conveys this towering literary figure who was himself a symbol of the peculiarly American conflict between moral scrutiny and the drive to succeed. Mr. Clemens lived the Gilded Life that Mark Twain despised. The merging and fragmenting of these and other identities, as the biography unfolds, results in a magnificent projection of the whole man the great comic spirit and the exuberant, tragic human being, who, his friend William Dean Howells said, was “sole, incomparable, the Lincoln of our literature.”

    Biography On Lebron James
    ₱ 504.00
    This book is part of Hyperink's best little books series. Our best little books are 3,500-5,000 words of fast, entertaining information on a highly demanded topic. Based on reader feedback (including yours!), we may expand this book in the future. If we do so, we'll send a free copy to all previous buyers. ABOUT THE BOOK Basketball star LeBron James is, at age 27, one of the most famous and celebrated athletes of his generation. Even casual sports fans (and a fair number of non-sports fans) are kept abreast of the latest successes and failures of King James and the Miami Heat, thanks to 24-7 media saturation. James is also amongst the most endorsed athletes in sports his prominent partnerships include Nike, McDonalds, and Sprite. Pegged as a future superstar at a very early age, James came into the NBA as a hometown hero, drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Somehow, he lived up to the incredible hype, leading the Cavaliers through the most successful period in their franchise history, including a trip to the 2007 NBA Finals, where they were defeated in four games by the San Antonio Spurs. After the 2009-10 season, James contact with the Cavaliers ended and he became a free agent. James began free agency as one of the most popular basketball players in the world. By the time he had made his decision to leave Cleveland and sign with the Miami Heat - a speech he made public on a much-lampooned ESPN special called The Decision - he completed an unlikely transformation into one of the most divisive figures in pro sports. By teaming up with fellow All-Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, James set a precedent that would cause ripple effects across the NBA that continue to this day. MEET THE AUTHOR Adam McKibbin's work has appeared in a wide variety of magazines and websites, including The Nation, the Chicago Tribune, AlterNet, Paste and Punk Planet. He's worked in web editorial and social media management for years, and is a seasoned interviewer whose favorite subjects include David Lynch, Tori Amos and human rights journalist Mac McClelland. He studied creative writing at the University of Wisconsin and received the Award for Academic Excellence for his collected fiction. He's currently working on his first nonfiction book. Adam lives in Los Angeles with his wife and daughter, and can be found on Twitter at @TheRedAlert. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK LeBron James was born in Akron, Ohio, on December 30, 1984. His mother, Gloria, was a 16-year-old single mother. Just between the ages of 5 and 8, LeBron moved into 12 different homes with his mother, often in tough, dangerous neighborhoods (New York Times, An N.B.A. Giant and How He Grew). Even by that point, at such a young age, it began to seem possible that basketball would be a way out (although some have speculated that James could have also pursued a career in professional football if hed so desired). James dominated the youth circuit and by junior high had already formed a tight-knit group of friends/teammates: The Fab Four. They made their decisions together, and so it was that they all wound up at the largely white St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, where they would join forces with Romeo Travis and become the Fab Five. Even this decision wasnt without controversy. To many in Akrons black community, we were now traitors who had sold out to the white establishment, James wrote in his memoir (Shooting Stars, co-written by Friday Night Lights author Buzz Bissinger).

    Manuka: The biography of an extraordinary honey
    ₱ 1,641.00
    New Zealand's manuka honey is known around the world. It fetches extremely high prices, and beekeepers do everything in their power to produce as much of it as they can. Wound dressings containing manuka honey are used in leading hospitals, and it has saved the lives of patients infected with disease-causing bacteria that are resistant to standard antibiotic drugs. In so doing, it has forced the medical profession to re-think its position on the therapeutic properties of natural products. This book chronicles the remarkable 'rags-to-riches' story of manuka honey, as seen through the eyes of a beekeeping specialist who watched it unfold from the very beginning. It's a great science tale of an unassuming university lecturer and his hardworking lab assistant who found something totally unexpected in a product everyone had written off. And it's an entertaining account of the way that simple discovery magically caught the international media's attention, helping some enterprising New Zealanders with a love of bees to develop manuka honey-based products and take them to the rest of the world. The book describes the remarkable antibacterial and therapeutic properties of manuka and the range of uses it has.

    Manuka: The Biography Of An Extraordinary Honey
    ₱ 2,553.00
    Not so long ago, in a small island nation in the South Pacific, beekeepers produced a most peculiar honey. It was much darker than the clover honey everyone put on their toast in the morning, and it tasted very different. In fact, the honey was a problem: it was hard to get out of the combs, and even harder for beekeepers to sell. Today that honey, manuka from New Zealand, is known around the world. It fetches high prices, and beekeepers do everything in their power to produce as much of it as possible. Wound dressings containing manuka honey are used in leading hospitals, and it has saved the lives of patients infected with disease - causing bacteria that are resistant to standard antibiotic drugs. In so doing it has forced the medical profession to rethink its position on the therapeutic properties of natural products. This book chronicles the remarkable 'rags - to - riches' story of manuka honey, as seen through the eyes of a New Zealand beekeeping specialist who watched it unfold from the very beginning. It's a great tale of science, in which an inquisitive university lecturer found something totally unexpected in a product everyone had written off. It's also an entertaining account of the way that seemingly simple discovery caught the international media's attention, helping enterprising New Zealanders to develop manuka honey - based products and take them all around the globe. But above all else it's a story of hope for the future, sounding a note of optimism in a world that for good reason feels saddened and sometimes even afraid about the future of the special relationship we humans have always had with those marvellous creatures, the honey bees.

     London Fog: The Biography at 2403.00 PHP from Galleon
    London Fog: The Biography
    ₱ 2,403.00
    In popular imagination, London is a city of fog. The classic London fogs, the thick yellow “pea-soupers,” were born in the industrial age of the early nineteenth century. The first globally notorious instance of air pollution, they remained a constant feature of cold, windless winter days until clean air legislation in the 1960s brought about their demise. Christine L. Corton tells the story of these epic London fogs, their dangers and beauty, and their lasting effects on our culture and imagination. As the city grew, smoke from millions of domestic fires, combined with industrial emissions and naturally occurring mists, seeped into homes, shops, and public buildings in dark yellow clouds of water droplets, soot, and sulphur dioxide. The fogs were sometimes so thick that people could not see their own feet. By the time London’s fogs lifted in the second half of the twentieth century, they had changed urban life. Fogs had created worlds of anonymity that shaped social relations, providing a cover for crime, and blurring moral and social boundaries. They had been a gift to writers, appearing famously in the works of Charles Dickens, Henry James, Oscar Wilde, Robert Louis Stevenson, Joseph Conrad, and T. S. Eliot. Whistler and Monet painted London fogs with a fascination other artists reserved for the clear light of the Mediterranean. Corton combines historical and literary sensitivity with an eye for visual drama―generously illustrated here―to reveal London fog as one of the great urban spectacles of the industrial age.

    Hannibal: The Military Biography of Rome's Greatest Enemy
    ₱ 2,512.00
    The Romans’ destruction of Carthage after the Third Punic War erased any Carthaginian historical record of Hannibal’s life. What we know of him comes exclusively from Roman historians who had every interest in minimizing his success, exaggerating his failures, and disparaging his character. The charges leveled against Hannibal include greed, cruelty and atrocity, sexual indulgence, and even cannibalism. But even these sources were forced to grudgingly admit to Hannibal’s military genius, if only to make their eventual victory over him appear greater. Yet there is no doubt that Hannibal was the greatest Carthaginian general of the Second Punic War. When he did not defeat them outright, he fought to a standstill the best generals Rome produced, and he sustained his army in the field for sixteen long years without mutiny or desertion. Hannibal was a first-rate tactician, only a somewhat lesser strategist, and the greatest enemy Rome ever faced. When he at last met defeat at the hands of the Roman general Scipio, it was against an experienced officer who had to strengthen and reconfigure the Roman legion and invent mobile tactics in order to succeed. Even so, Scipio’s victory at Zama was against an army that was a shadow of its former self. The battle could easily have gone the other way. If it had, the history of the West would have been changed in ways that can only be imagined. Richard A. Gabriel’s brilliant new biography shows how Hannibal’s genius nearly unseated the Roman Empire.
