It's not easy being a Superstud in bed every night when you're exhausted and the only thing making your blood boil are the football results. What about trying to be a DIY genius when the only jigsaw you've ever tackled before had 500 pieces? Not to mention being a sharing and caring Dad when the kids are driving you up the walls. You're supposed to be good in a crisis, like when the dog pees between the floorboards (Kick his ass out the door and spray disinfectant between the cracks.), and the mother of all househusbands - programming the DVD with one hand while making a feeble attempt to iron with the other. There's barely time to have a few pints down the pub with the lads. While women are said to Want It All, men are often expected to Do It All. Mostly they fail miserably. Dan Buckley's mixture of observations and home-brewed philosophy reveals what it means to be a modern man. Inspired by weekly poker games where a bunch of guys talk to one another, without slurring too much, the trials and tribulations of the 21st century male are laid bare. All names have been changed - not to protect the innocent, but to protect the author. Book jacket.

Lionel 'Buster' Crabb became renowned during the Second World War for his amazing feats of underwater daring. After the war he was celebrated for embodying a particular English ideal - a love for King and Country - that seemed to be dying out. Then, in 1956, during a visit to Britain by Nikita Khrushchev, who had arrived by ship, Commander Crabb disappeared. Some thought he had perished while attempting to inspect the Soviet vessel; others that he had been kidnapped and forced to work for the USSR. Out of this mystery Tim Binding has spun a wondrous piece of fiction. It is the story of a man who has made deep personal sacrifices for the sake of higher ideals and who must, towards the end of his days, measure their meaning and their worth. Praise for Man Overboard: 'Such an arresting subject for a novel that one wonders why no one ever thought of it before . . . Binding fashions a convincing picture of a restless postwar world . . . a consistently entertaining and resourceful novel' D J Taylor, Guardian 'His triumph is to have created a marvellous, anachronistic hero in a novel which not only tries to explain a famous mystery, but takes a hard look at what Britain lost when the war was won' Daily Mail 'The dialogue is always a comic delight . . . Man Overboard is one half James Bond story (except more soulful), and one half Ealing Comedy. As such, it is pretty irresistible' Daily Express 'Tim Binding has written a historical novel which with a very light touch dramatizes the faint but inescapable foreignness of the past without turning it into a costume drama; its poignancy is the product of conviction. Binding wields a range of linguistic fire-power often missing from contemporary fiction, as much at ease with the visionary set piece as with bar-room banter . . . [Man Overboard] is a remarkable feat of compression, representing a significant artistic advance' Sean O'Brien, TLS

Man Overboard tells the inside story of one of America's most notorious murder cases in decades, providing unprecedented insight into the death of Greenwich native George Allen Smith IV on his honeymoon. He married Jennifer Hagel in June 2005. Both of them were young and beautiful. He came from an old-line Greenwich family; she, from blue-collar Cromwell and with a reputation for being a flirt. Just eight days after their wedding, their new life together disintegrated on their Royal Caribbean honeymoon cruise. The morning after several booze-fueled melees, a gruesome blood stain traced the awning below their cabin, and George had vanished. After four years of bitter legal wrangling with both families, Royal Caribbean recently handed over its files to the FBI, which announced that Smith's murder is “very active and open.” Man Overboard provides an extraordinary look into a case that has captured the public imagination and raised provocative questions about the unregulated cruise industry, leading directly to the historic Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act signed by President Obama.

His book, Man Overboard, chronicles the sad, comical, frustrating and occasionally frightening daily routine endured by a change-of-career do-gooder. Klass portrayal of his "Crash and Burn" attempts to help underprivileged inner city kids is inspiring. Despite the torturous obstacles inflicted by school administrators, the little darlings themselves, and his own uncontrolled angerm-Klass eventually finds salvation for himself and some of his students. A candid tale, Man Overboard will take you on an eye-opening ride into our misguided public educational system. You'll find out why our schools don't succeed and why only teachers who are a little overboard themselves jump into the fray.

Jonah is not a book about a great fish! It is really a book about God, and how one man came, through painful experience, to discover the true character of the God whom he had already served in the earlier years of his life. He was to find that doctrine about God come alive in his experience. It is this combination of doctrine and experience that makes Jonah such a fascinating, instructive, and practical book.
