Who Wants to be a Billionaire? is the story of James Packer's desperate battle to win his father's love and respect.
It's also a tale of billion dollar bets gone disastrously wrong. But above all it's the portrait of a troubled relationship between a dominant father and dutiful son.
In this powerful sequel to his number one bestseller, The Rise and Rise of Kerry Packer, Paul Barry shows how James's father kept his grip on the empire even as he lay close to death.
And he reveals what drives his heir.

John Bishop: How Did All This Happen?
by John Bishop
 
Traded in recently @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange / Guesthouse / Cafe, #Pattaya...
 
If you’re a man of a certain age you’ll know there comes a point in life when getting a sports car and over analysing your contribution to society sounds like a really good idea.
 
With a good job in sales and marketing and a nice house in Manchester that he shared with his wife and kids, John Bishop was no different when he turned the dreaded 4-0.
But instead of spanking a load of cash on a car that would have made him look like a senior stylist at Vidal Sassoon, he stumbled onto a pathway that ultimately lead him to become one of the nation’s best loved comedians.
It was a gamble, but boy, did it pay off.

Dönitz: The Last Fuhrer by Peter Padfield
 
Traded in recently @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange Pattaya, Thailand..
 
Peter Padfield's compellingly readable book conveys a flavor of Nazi leadership unmatched by anything outside the memoirs of Albert Speer.
It is difficult to frame higher praise.
A distinguished naval historian and biographer paints a riveting portrait of Grand Admiral Karl Dönitz, the Supreme Commander of the German Navy and mastermind of World War Two's devastating submarine war.
As the Author so eloquently proves, dedicated officer Dönitz was corrupted by his inner need for a cause and for a leader to serve, both of which he found in Adolf Hitler.

The Decisive Moment. by Jonah Lehrer
 
Traded back into Canterbury Tales Bookshop #Pattaya.
 
Prepare for change of worldview?
The mystery of how and why we make decisions, from the trivial to the life changing, was rendered brilliantly in Michael Frayn's play Copenhagen, about the wartime meeting of physicists Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg.
"Decisions make themselves when you are going downhill at 70 kilometres an hour," says Heisenberg, a reckless skier.

by Desmond Seward.
 
Traded in recently @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop * Book exchange - Guesthouse * Cafe - #Pattaya.
 
The Plantagenet's reigned over England longer than any other family from Henry II to Richard III.
Four kings were murdered, two came close to deposition, and another was killed in a battle by rebels.
Shakespeare wrote plays about six of them, further entrenching them in the national myth.
Based on major contemporary sources and recent research, acclaimed historian Desmond Seward provides the first readable overview of the whole extraordinary dynasty, in one volume."
