No one knows the writer's Hollywood more intimately than William Goldman. Two-time Academy Award-winning screenwriter and the bestselling author of Marathon Man, Tinsel, Boys and Girls Together, and other novels, Goldman now takes you into Hollywood's inner sanctums...on and behind the scenes for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, All the President's Men, and other films...into the plush offices of Hollywood producers...into the working lives of acting greats such as Redford, Olivier, Newman, and Hoffman...and into his own professional experiences and creative thought processes in the crafting of screenplays. You get a firsthand look at why and how films get made and what elements make a good screenplay. Says columnist Liz Smith, "You'll be fascinated.

Over 100,000 women were victims of forced prostitution - Japanese military prostitution - during World War II. This is their story. Unlike other war atrocities, the surviving comfort women were too ashamed to tell their stories, playing into the hands of a determined Japanese government cover-up. However, nearly 50 years after the war, the women began to speak up, scholars delved into archives, a key Japanese official confessed and the story came tumbling out, ultimately forcing the Japanese government to admit its big lie.

Moody by Wensley Clarkson..

FIND THIS AND MANY MORE IN OUR TRUE CRIME SECTION.

Moody is the gripping biography of a criminal whose career spanned more than four decades and included encounters with Jack Spot, Billy Hill, Mad Frankie Fraser, the Krays, the Richardson's and the IRA.
Jimmy Moody became the number-one enforcer for the Richardson's and tasted his first 'kill' - all before he'd reached 30 years of age.
In the 1970's, he joined a team of criminals to form the Chainsaw Gang, who went on to become that decade's most successful armed robbers.
In 1980, Moody was in Brixton Prison awaiting trial for his pivotal role with the gang, when his life took its next dramatic twist - one of his fellow inmates was Provisional IRA hero Gerard Tuite and the two men joined forces with a third inmate to pull off a dramatic jailbreak.
Moody was never recaptured - while on the run, he became intrigued by Tuite's stories of brutality and torture inflicted on the Irish by the British.
Soon, Moody's murderous skills were being put to use in Northern Ireland - his secretive freelance hits on behalf of the Provos struck so much fear into the province's security services that the Thatcher government put a three-man SAS hit squad on his tail.
Moody's victims were chillingly referred to as having been awarded an O.B.E - (One Behind the Ear).
But while security forces in Northern Ireland searched for Moody, he'd actually set himself up in a flat in South London with a new identity - Moody believed his reputation as a hired killer would keep him one step ahead of trouble......

Nature Via Nurture: Genes, Experience and What Makes Us Human

by Matt Ridley..

Acclaimed author Matt Ridley's thrilling follow-up to his bestseller Genome.

Armed with the extraordinary new discoveries about our genes, Ridley turns his attention to the nature versus nurture debate to bring the first popular account of the roots of human behaviour.

What makes us who we are?

In February 2001 it was announced that the genome contains not 100,000 genes as originally expected but only 30,000 - this startling revision led some scientists to conclude that there are simply not enough human genes to account for all the different ways people behave - we must be made by nurture, not nature.

Matt Ridley argues that the emerging truth is far more interesting than this myth.

Nurture depends on genes, too, and genes need nurture. Genes not only predetermine the broad structure of the brain; they also absorb formative experiences, react to social cues and even run memory.

After the discovery of the double helix of DNA, Nature via Nurture chronicles a new revolution in our understanding of genes - Ridley recounts the hundred years' war between the partisans of nature and nurture to explain how this paradoxical creature, the human being, can be simultaneously free-willed and motivated by instinct and culture.

Nature via Nurture is an enthralling, up-to-the-minute account of how genes build brains to absorb experience.

Thai Gold & Opium Dream by Jason Schoonover...

High in the Himalayas a Buddhist monk is savagely murdered, his monastery ransacked and stolen is Asia’s most sacred icon - the jewel-encrusted head of Gautama Buddha.

When a wealthy client calls on adventurer Lee Rivers to track down the priceless treasure, he doesn’t expect to be pitted against ruthless drug traffickers, bloodthirsty Sikhs, cold-blooded Russian agents, a relentless CIA operative and more - all also determined to recover the head at any cost!

Rivers enjoys his life of high adventure, collecting for the lucrative antiquities market. He also enjoys Bangkok’s infamous nightlife - that is until he falls for Tysee, a sensual a-go-go girl.

Rivers knows she is the daughter of a violent drug warlord; he doesn’t know that she carries other baggage that threatens to break his heart.

Together, they race from The Golden Triangle, though the bars, brothels and backstreets of Bangkok and Southeast Asia, desperately trying to stay a step ahead of blood-thirsty pursuers.

Will he succeed in returning the head to its rightful owners? Equally, will his heart be shattered? The multi-layer climax will take you completely by surprise.

........................................OPIUM DREAM.....

Kublai Khan’s long lost tomb is discovered in Afghanistan’s Desert of Death! Adventurer Lee Rivers is sent in to recover the greatest find of his career as an antiquities collector.

He never expected that it would lead to entanglement in a brilliant conspiracy to destroy Western civilization.

Why people are trying to kill him in Saigon and his Bangkok home, Lee Rivers can’t guess. Until he finds out, the assignment getting him out of Thailand is just what he needs - though he never expected to fall for the beautiful and capable Meow, his hastily hired bodyguard. She clearly reciprocates his feelings. So why does he discover her crying alone?

When he finds out after continuing attempts on his life ranging across half the world, the news is as devastating as his simultaneous discovery that he’s been sucked into a terrible conspiracy.

Does he have time to save the world? Does he even want to save his relationship with Meow?

Opium Dream is the second book in the Lee Rivers action-adventure series. If you like riding a roller coaster of fast-paced action - exotic locations and a sizzling love story from a writer most often compared to Clive Cussler, Jason Schoonover is for you.

A Piece of Cake by Cupcake Brown..

This is the heart-wrenching true story of a girl named Cupcake and it begins when, aged eleven, she is orphaned and placed in the 'care' of sadistic foster parents.

But there comes a point in her preteen years - maybe it's the night she first tries to run away and is exposed to drugs, alcohol, and sex all at once - when Cupcake's story shifts from a tear-jerking tragedy to a dark, deeply disturbing journey through hell.

Cupcake learned to survive by turning tricks, downing hard liquor and ingesting every drug she could find while hitchhiking up and down the California coast.

At just 16 she stumbled into the terrifying world of the gangsta, dealing drugs, hustling and only just surviving a drive-by shooting. Ironically - it was Cupcake's rapid descent into the nightmare of crack cocaine addiction that finally saved her.

After one four-day crack binge she woke up behind a dumpster. Half-dressed and half-dead, she finally realized she had to change her life or die on the streets - another trash-can addict, another sad statistic.

Astonishingly, Cupcake turned her life around and this is her brutally frank, startlingly funny story - unlike any memoir you will ever read, A Piece of Cake is a redemptive, gripping tale of a resilient spirit who took on the worst of contemporary urban life and survived it.

It is also the most genuinely affecting rollercoaster ride through hell and back that you will ever take.

Curtain of Death by W.E.B. Griffin & William E. Butterworth IV
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange...
 
W. E. B. Griffin offers us the dramatic third novel in the Clandestine Operations series about the Cold War, the fledgling Central Intelligence Agency and a new breed of warrior.
January 1946: Two WACs leave an officers club in Munich, and four Soviet NKGB agents kidnap them at knifepoint in the parking lot and shove them in the back of an ambulance.
That is the agents first mistake, and their last.
One of the WACs, a blond woman improbably named Claudette Colbert, works for the new Directorate of Central Intelligence, and three of the men end up dead and the fourth wounded.
The incident, however, will send shock waves rippling up and down the line and have major repercussions not only for her, but for her boss, James Cronley, Chief DCI-Europe, and for everybody involved in their still-evolving enterprise.
For, though the Germans may have been defeated, Cronley and his company are on the front lines of an entirely different kind of war now.
The enemy has changed, the RULES have changed and the stakes have never been higher."

The Greed Merchants: How the Investment Banks Played the Free Market Game by Philip Augar. . . .

Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse..

Are investment bankers the responsible guardians of free-market capitalism that they would have us believe? Or are they something more sinister altogether . . . necessary but dangerous players in our free-market economy?

“Greed,” said Gordon Gekko in Wall Street, “is good.” But how good is it for capitalism if the major investment banks are basically an oligopoly, keeping their risks low and their profits artificially high? How good is it for companies that listen to their value-destroying advice? And how good is it for the average shareholder, who pays a huge price through portfolios that underperform and have a raft of hidden charges?

Philip Augar worked in investment banking for more than twenty years and has since become a gadfly to the industry on both sides of the Atlantic. His new book reveals exactly how the investment banks make their money by acting simultaneously for buyers, sellers, and themselves while carefully avoiding fee-based competition with one another.

Their cushy role in the financial world has finally been challenged by New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer in the wake of the dot-com bubble. But only a former insider like Augar can go beyond the headlines to reveal how the system really works and why it matters to anyone who owns stock.

Sex on the Moon: The Amazing Story Behind the Most Audacious Heist in History by Ben Mezrich...

Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse..

Thad Roberts, a fellow in a prestigious NASA program had an idea - a romantic, albeit crazy, idea. He wanted to give his girlfriend the moon. Literally. Thad convinced his girlfriend and another female accomplice, both NASA interns, to break into an impregnable laboratory at NASA - past security checkpoints, an electronically locked door with cipher security codes, and camera-lined hallways and help him steal the most precious objects in the world: the moon rocks. But what does one do with an item so valuable that it’s illegal even to own? And was Thad Roberts - undeniably gifted, picked for one of the most competitive scientific posts imaginable, a possible astronaut - really what he seemed? Mezrich has pored over thousands of pages of court records, FBI transcripts, and NASA documents and has interviewed most of the participants in the crime to reconstruct this Ocean’s Eleven–style heist, a madcap story of genius, love, and duplicity that reads like a Hollywood thrill ride.

Hollywood Confidential: How the Studios Beat the Mob at Their Own Game by Ted Schwarz

Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse / Pattaya..

Hollywood Confidential is the first truly in-depth look at the sexy, humorous, violent, and tragic history of the mob in Hollywood from the 1920's, when Joe Kennedy decided to buy a motion picture company, to the 1980's when the last vestiges of mob influence were revealed through investigations of former Screen Actors Guild President Ronald Reagan and his union backers.

The revelations continue into the 1980s when the major studios were no longer important, the independents were on the rise, and it was no longer possible to buy, bribe, or blackmail in a meaningful way. There were deals and bad guys, but the mob as it existed was finished in Hollywood.

The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire
by Edward Gibbon..
The History of the Decline & Fall of the Roman Empire was written by English historian Edward Gibbon & originally published in six quarto volumes. Volume 1 was published in 1776, going thru six printings; 2-3 in 1781; 4-6 in 1788-89. It was a major literary achievement of the 18th century, adopted as a model for the methodologies of historians.
The books cover the Roman Empire after Marcus Aurelius, from 180 to 1590.
They take as their material the behavior & decisions that led to the eventual fall of the Empire in East & West, offering explanations.
Gibbon is called the 1st modern historian of ancient Rome. By virtue of its mostly objective approach & accurate use of reference material, his work was adopted as a model for the methodologies of 19-20th century historians. His pessimism & detached irony was common to the historical genre of his era.
Although he published other books, Gibbon devoted much of his life (1772-89) to this one work. His Memoirs of My Life & Writings is devoted largely to his reflections on how the book virtually became his life. He compared the publication of each succeeding volume to a newborn.
Gibbon offers an explanation for why the Roman Empire fell, a task difficult because of few comprehensive written sources, though he wasn't the only historian to tackle the subject. Most of his ideas are taken from what few relevant records were available: those of Roman moralists of the 4-5th centuries.
According to Gibbon, the Empire succumbed to barbarian invasions because of lost of civic virtue. They'd become weak, outsourcing defence to barbarian mercenaries, who became so numerous & ingrained that they took over.
Romans had become effeminate, incapable of tough military lifestyles. In addition, Christianity created belief that a better life existed after death, fostering indifference to the present, sapping patriotism.
Its comparative pacifism tended to hamper martial spirit. Lastly, like other Enlightenment thinkers, he held in contempt the Middle Ages as a priest-ridden, superstitious, dark age. It wasn't until his age of reason that history could progress.
