I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell (Tucker Max #1) by Tucker Max.....
 
@ Canterbury Tales Cafe - Bookshop - Book exchange..
 
The Book That Inspired The Movie..
My name is Tucker Max, and I am an asshole.
I get excessively drunk at inappropriate times, disregard social norms, indulge every whim, ignore the consequences of my actions, mock idiots and posers, sleep with more women than is safe or reasonable, and just generally act like a raging dickhead.
But, I do contribute to humanity in one very important way: I share my adventures with the world.

A Sense of Freedom by Jimmy Boyle.....
 
@ Canterbury Tales Cafe - Bookshop - Book exchange..
 
'My life sentence had actually started the day I left my mother's womb...' Jimmy Boyle grew up in Glasgow’s Gorbals.
All around him the world was drinking, fighting and thieving.
To survive, he too had to fight and steal… Kids’ gangs led to trouble with the police.
Approved schools led to Borstal, and Jimmy was on his way to a career in crime. By his twenties he was a hardened villain, sleeping with prostitutes, running shebeens and money-lending rackets. Then they nailed him for murder.
The sentence was life, the brutal, degrading eternity of a broken spirit in the prisons of Peterhead and Inverness. Thankfully, Jimmy was able to turn his life around inside the prison walls and eventually released on parole. A Sense of Freedom is a searing indictment of a society that uses prison bars and brutality to destroy a man's humanity and at the same time an outstanding testament to one man's ability to survive, to find a new life, a new creativity, and a new alternative.

The Racketeer - John Grisham. . . .
 
More books in everyday @ Canterbury Tales Cafe - Bookshop - Book exchange..
 
Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered.
 
Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.
 
Who is the Racketeer?
And what does he have to do with the judge’s untimely demise? His name, for the moment, is Malcolm Bannister. Job status? Former attorney.
Current residence? The Federal Prison Camp near Frostburg, Maryland.
On paper, Malcolm’s situation isn’t looking too good these days, but he’s got an ace up his sleeve.
He knows who killed Judge Fawcett, and he knows why. The judge’s body was found in his remote lakeside cabin. There was no forced entry, no struggle, just two dead bodies: Judge Fawcett and his young secretary.
And one large, state-of-the-art, extremely secure safe, opened and emptied.
What was in the safe? The FBI would love to know.
And Malcolm Bannister would love to tell them. But everything has a price, especially information as explosive as the sequence of events that led to Judge Fawcett’s death. And the Racketeer wasn’t born yesterday . . .
Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

The Woman in the Window: by A. J Finn..
 
@ Canterbury Tales Cafe - Bookshop - Book exchange..
 
For readers of Gillian Flynn and Tana French comes one of the decade’s most anticipated debuts, to be published in thirty-six languages around the world and already in development as a major film from Fox: a twisty, powerful Hitchcockian thriller about an agoraphobic woman who believes she witnessed a crime in a neighboring house.
It isn’t paranoia if it’s really happening . . .
Anna Fox lives alone - a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside.
She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbors.
Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son.
The perfect family.
But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble - and its shocking Secrets are laid bare.
What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one - and nothing, is what it seems.
Twisty and powerful, ingenious and moving, The Woman in the Window is a smart, sophisticated novel of psychological suspense that recalls the best of Hitchcock.

The Nature of Risk: Stock Market Survival & the Meaning of Life - by Justin Mamis...
 
@ Canterbury Tales Cafe - Bookshop - Book exchange..
 
Sometimes the biggest risk of all is taking one, and the need to be sure you are making the right choice actually increases the risk.
The market is not efficient and hedging doesn't work.
To rely on charts to understand the market is Mamis' way. The author is an excellent market technician who offers sound financial guidance and insights into the prepared mind.
He gets your thinking going with a comfortable investment philosophy that will often go against convention.
There are enough anecdotes, war stories, and charts to make for sound advise.
The path to market freedom is technique and you don't have to be one of the best traders to succeed with experience.
It seems to me that the entire 1990's have confirmed the ambiguities of market language and how to operate in such a world.
You will know how to keep risk at bay which most of us find not to be an easy task.

One Summer: America, 1927 by Bill Bryson...
 
@ Canterbury Tales Cafe - Bookshop - Book exchange..
 
In One Summer Bill Bryson, one of our greatest and most beloved nonfiction writers, transports readers on a journey back to one amazing season in American life.
The summer of 1927 began with one of the signature events of the twentieth century: on May 21, 1927, Charles Lindbergh became the first man to cross the Atlantic by plane nonstop, and when he landed in Le Bourget airfield near Paris, he ignited an explosion of worldwide rapture and instantly became the most famous person on the planet.
 
Meanwhile, the titanically talented Babe Ruth was beginning his assault on the home run record, which would culminate on September 30 with his sixtieth blast, one of the most resonant and durable records in sports history.
In between those dates a Queens housewife named Ruth Snyder and her corset-salesman lover garroted her husband, leading to a murder trial that became a huge tabloid sensation. Alvin “Shipwreck” Kelly sat atop a flagpole in Newark, New Jersey, for twelve days, a new record.
The American South was clobbered by unprecedented rain and by flooding of the Mississippi basin, a great human disaster, the relief efforts for which were guided by the uncannily able and insufferably pompous Herbert Hoover.
 
Calvin Coolidge interrupted an already leisurely presidency for an even more relaxing three-month vacation in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
The gangster Al Capone tightened his grip on the illegal booze business through a gaudy and murderous reign of terror and municipal corruption.
The first true “talking picture,” Al Jolson’s The Jazz Singer, was filmed and forever changed the motion picture industry.
 
The four most powerful central bankers on earth met in secret session on a Long Island estate and made a fateful decision that virtually guaranteed a future crash and depression.
 
All this and much, much more transpired in that epochal summer of 1927, and Bill Bryson captures its outsized personalities, exciting events, and occasional just plain weirdness with his trademark vividness, eye for telling detail, and delicious humor.
In that year America stepped out onto the world stage as the main event, and One Summer transforms it all into narrative nonfiction of the highest order.

The Wire in the Blood by Val McDermid.
 
@ Canterbury Tales Cafe - Bookshop - Book exchange..
 
Across the country, dozens of teenage girls have vanished. Authorities are convinced they're runaways with just the bad luck of the draw to connect them.
It's the job of criminal profilers Dr. Tony Hill and Carol Jordan to look for a pattern.
They've spent years exploring the psyches of madmen. But sane men kill, too and when they hide in plain sight, they can be difficult to find...
He's handsome and talented, rich and famous - a notorious charmer with the power to seduce ...and the will to destroy. No-one can believe what he's capable of.
No-one can imagine what he's already done and no one can fathom what he's about to do next, until one of Hill's students is murdered - the first move in a sick and violent game for three players.
Now, of all the killers Hill and Jordan have hunted, none has been so ruthless, so terrifyingly clever, and so brilliantly elusive as the killer who's hunting them...

@ Canterbury Tales Cafe - Bookshop - Book exchange..
Cometh the Hour opens with the reading of a suicide note, which has devastating consequences for Harry and Emma Clifton, Giles Barrington and Lady Virginia. Giles must decide if he should withdraw from politics and try to rescue Karin, the woman he loves, from behind the Iron Curtain. But is Karin truly in love with him, or is she a spy? Lady Virginia is facing bankruptcy, and can see no way out of her financial problems, until she is introduced to the hapless Cyrus T. Grant III from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, who's in England to see his horse run at Royal Ascot. Sebastian Clifton is now the Chief Executive of Farthings Bank and a workaholic, whose personal life is thrown into disarray when he falls for Priya, a beautiful Indian girl.
But her parents have already chosen the man she is going to marry. Meanwhile, Sebastian's rivals Adrian Sloane and Desmond Mellor are still plotting to bring him and his chairman Hakim Bishara down, so they can take over Farthings. Harry Clifton remains determined to get Anatoly Babakov released from a gulag in Siberia, following the international success of his acclaimed book, Uncle Joe.
But then something unexpected happens that none of them could have anticipated. Cometh the Hour is the penultimate book in the Clifton Chronicles and, like the five previous novels - which were all - showcases Jeffrey Archer's extraordinary storytelling with his trademark twists.

Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton. . .
 
Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange... US book price $14.00 - from us 160 baht - plus you receive 50% in credit off your next book when you have finished with it?
 
Cry, the Beloved Country, the most famous and important novel in South Africa’s history, was an immediate worldwide bestseller in 1948.
Alan Paton’s impassioned novel about a black man’s country under white man’s law is a work of searing beauty.
 
Cry, the beloved country, for the unborn child that is the inheritor of our fear. Let him not love the earth too deeply. Let him not laugh too gladly when the water runs through his fingers, nor stand too silent when the setting sun makes red the veld with fire.
Let him not be too moved when the birds of his land are singing, nor give too much of his heart to a mountain or valley. For fear will rob him of all if he gives too much.
 
The eminent literary critic Lewis Gannett wrote, “We have had many novels from statesmen and reformers, almost all bad; many novels from poets, almost all thin.
In Alan Paton’s Cry, the Beloved Country the statesman, the poet and the novelist meet in a unique harmony.”
 
Cry, the Beloved Country is the deeply moving story of the Zulu pastor Stephen Kumalo and his son, Absalom, set against the background of a land and a people riven by racial injustice.
Remarkable for its lyricism, unforgettable for character and incident, Cry, the Beloved Country is a classic work of love and hope, courage and endurance, born of the dignity of man.

The Devil's General: The Life of Hyazinth Graf Strachwitz, "The Panzer Graf" by Raymond Bagdonas..
 
Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange... UK book price 21.99 - from us 180 baht - plus you receive 50% in credit off your next book when you have finished with it?
 
This is the story of the most highly decorated German regimental commander of World War II, known as the Panzer Graf (Armored Count). An aristocratic Silesian, whose ancestors had faced the Mongols at Leipzig, Strachwitz first won the Iron Cross in the Great War.
After fighting with the Freikorps and in between the wars, he was serving with the 1st Panzer Division when the Polish campaign inaugurated World War II.
Leading from the front, his exploits as commander of a panzer battalion earned him further decorations during the French campaign. Transferred to the newly formed 16th Panzer Division, Strachwitz participated in the invasion of Yugoslavia and then Operation Barbarossa where he earned the Knight's Cross.
The following year, during the advance on Stalingrad, he won the Oak Leaves for destroying 270 Soviet tanks at Kalach.
Now commander of a regiment, he reached the Volga and fought ferociously on the northern rim of Sixth Army s perimeter.
Severely wounded during the battles, he was flown out of the Stalingrad pocket and was thus spared the fate of the rest of Sixth Army. Upon recuperation, Strachwitz was named commander of the Grossdeutschland Division s panzer regiment, and won the Swords to the Knight's Cross during Manstein's counteroffensive at Kharkov.
After fighting through Kursk and the ensuing defensive battles, he was transferred the next year to Army Group North where he won the Diamonds to the Knight's Cross at Narva. For the rest of the war, sandwiched around a stay in hospital, Strachwitz commanded ad hoc battlegroups, and pioneered the formation of tank hunter brigades, consisting of deep-penetration infantry armed with panzerfausts and other demolitions who would ambush Soviet tanks. Wounded 12 times during the war, and barely surviving a fatal car crash, Strachwitz was finally able to surrender to the Americans in May 1945. Australian author/researcher Raymond Bagdonas, though impaired by the disappearance of 16th Panzer Division's official records at Stalingrad, and the fact that many of the Panzer Graf's later battlegroups never kept them, has nevertheless written an intensely detailed account of this combat leader's life, as well as ferocious armored warfare in World War II.

Jenson Button: Life to the Limit: My Autobiography
by Jenson Button..
 
Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange...
 
This is my life, not the stuff you've seen, but the things you haven't. This is my childhood growing up in the West Country, my struggles, my doubts and my hopes.
It's the people I've met in my seventeen years in Formula One, many of whom I've loved, some of whom I definitely haven't.
It's the laughs I've shared, the battles I've fought, some on the track with rivals and friends like Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel.
It's the pressure I struggled with as I closed in on my World Championship in 2009, it's the calm I felt every time I settled into the cockpit.
It's my dad - the many times he saved me, the one moment he doubted me, the hole in my life he left me.
It's everything in one go, the good days as well as the bad. A life lived not just as a racing driver but, ultimately, as a human being.

Joyland by Stephen King..

A lot of Horror @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop - Book exchange

Life is Not Always a Butcher's Game. Sometimes the Prizes Are Real. Sometimes They're Precious. All time best-selling author STEPHEN KING returns with a novel of carny life, and death... College student Devin Jones took the summer job at Joyland hoping to forget the girl who broke his heart. But he wound up facing something far more terrible: the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and dark truths about life, and what comes after, that would change his world forever. A riveting story about love and loss, about growing up and growing old and about those who don't get to do either because death comes for them before their time.

Eddie McDermott is the owner of Fast Eddie’s Lucky 7 A-Go-Go, the most popular nightspot in the northern Thai city of Chiang Mai.
For twenty years, Eddie has supplied the ex-pat community with cheap booze, easy women, and memorable nights.
After a heart attack nearly kills him, Eddie decides it’s time to make some changes in life.
And the first order of business is finding someone to run his bar.
 
Ray Malone is a middle-aged underdog who has yet to find success in business or love.
While he’s never without a plan to see his name in lights or land the prettiest girl in town, he can rarely afford more than a weekend tryst with one of Eddie’s maidens.
While most of the girls regard him as just another expat, a dancer named Pim decides he'd make a good catch – especially after her boss offers to sell his bar to him.
 
While Ray struggles to come up with the money, Pim carries out schemes of her own. Meanwhile, a mysterious stranger intent upon outbidding Ray decides that negotiations would go smoother with Malone out of the picture - permanently.

My Father And Other Working Class Football Heroes
by Gary Imlach...
 
Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange... UK book price 7.99 - from us 160 baht - plus you receive 50% in credit off your next book when you have finished with it?
 
A poignant and moving account of the author’s search for the man his father was and the life he led as a well-known footballer, blending the personal and the historical into an unforgettable story
 
Stewart Imlach was an ordinary neighbourhood soccer star of his time.
A brilliant winger who thrilled the crowd on Saturdays, then worked alongside them in the off-season; who represented Scotland in the 1958 World Cup and never received a cap for his efforts; who was Man of the Match for Nottingham Forest in the 1959 FA Cup Final, and was rewarded with the standard offer - £20 a week, take it or leave it.
 
Gary Imlach grew up a privileged insider at Goodison Park when Stewart moved into coaching. He knew the highlights of his father's career by heart. But when his dad died he realised they were all he knew.
He began to realise, too, that he'd lost the passion for football that his father had passed down to him. In this book he faces his growing alienation from the game he was born into, as he revisits key periods in his father's career to build up a picture of his football life - and through him a whole era.
