Life and leadership lessons from the Special Forces, accompanying the Channel 4 series SAS: Who Dares Wins.

Are you up to the challenge of SAS leadership? Only the best will succeed...

Britain's SAS (Special Air Service) has an unparalleled reputation for soldiering excellence. Their skills and techniques have been perfected in the most demanding environments imaginable, but many of these can also be used in our everyday lives.

This book takes situations all of us will experience during our lives and presents tactical lessons drawn from SAS training and battlefield experience. Its four authors - stars of the hit Channel 4 show SAS: Who Dares Wins - how their finely honed understanding of how to handle extreme challenges can be applied in any environment. Their advice on negotiation, people management, self-motivation and resilience, among other things, can transform your performance in a whole range of scenarios: from buying a house, nailing a job interview, and the experience of dealing with rejection, to maintaining a diet, or managing that pushy colleague at work.

This is the ultimate guide to leadership and personal achievement.

After she is forcibly separated from the boys and the other passengers, Thea and her tactical team quickly regroup.

Dawn Harper

In Live Well to 101, Dr Dawn Harper, from Channel 4's Embarrassing Bodies, urges you to start investing in your health now to improve your chances of enjoying your latter years to the full. This book is for anyone who enjoyed and learnt from The Longevity Book by Cameron Diaz or The Optimum Nutrition Bible by Patrick Holford. 'We are living longer. A girl born today can expect to live beyond her 83rd birthday, and a boy half way into his 80th year. But living long doesn't necessarily mean living well.'Life expectancy is on a steep upwards curve; but if we do live longer then we need to do everything we can to make sure that we live well to a ripe old age. This is a book about what the medical obstacles are to a healthy old age and what we can do about them. Dr Dawn offers simple, practical advice alongside case studies of centenarians who live a full and healthy life. There are steps that we can all take, starting now, no matter what age we are each at. It's a bit like a pension; the earlier you invest the more you will have in the bank later. And there are lessons for all generations.There is nothing in here that will recommend a hideously restrictive diet or living your life as though you are training for a marathon or about to climb Mount Everest. Instead, it's about showing how small, achievable and sustainable changes really can alter your future. With over 21 years in General Practice, Dr Dawn has gained hundreds of simple tips, all of which can make a substantial difference if practiced as part of daily life. As well as these easy tips, Dawn will also answer the following questions:· Is your lifespan simply predetermined by your genes?· Can a healthy lifestyle dramatically improve your chances of reaching a very old age?· Is longevity affected by where you live, the car you drive, your choice of pet or your level of sexual activity?· Can you pay your way to living longer with private healthcare or expensive medical scans?

Andy Seed
Authors:
Andy Seed

ALL TEACHERS GREAT AND SMALL tells the true story of Andy's first year at Cragthwaite Primary School - how he bravely negotiated the vagaries of the local dialect, made disastrous bids to provide a family home, naively and hilariously tried out new-fangled ideas in a school stuck in a 1950s time warp, and ultimately discovered a little part of England he was proud to call home.Warm, touching and very funny, All Teachers Great and Small transports you to a time that may be gone but has never been forgotten.ALL TEACHERS WISE AND WONDERFUL: A year on from the end of ALL TEACHERS GREAT AND SMALL, Barbara and Andy Seed are settled into their Dales village, but at school trouble arrives for Andy in the form of nine-year-old Sheena. After two years in the job, Andy Seed returns to Cragthwaite brimming with confidence and looking forward to a year that is bound to bring its own rewards, as well as its share of mishaps and misadventures. But even he didn't anticipate exploding piggy banks, bottle-rocket missiles, and actually deafening Dracula. At home, Andy and Barbara are enjoying life with little Tom, and are expecting again. Meanwhile, a new friendship is formed with hill farmer Adam. Adam proves both an inspiration and a confidante for Andy, and through him he begins to see the light with troubled Sheena. The second in Andy's trilogy about life as a Yorkshire Dales teacher, this is as warm, witty and refreshing as the first, full of colourful anecdotes from village and school life.Andy Seed is beginning his fifth year teaching at Cragthwaite Primary in the Yorkshire Dales, and as always a new term is full of surprises.ALL TEACHERS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL: These take the form of a beautiful, but not terribly bright, student on placement from the local teacher training college, and a particularly pushy and problematic parent with a fine line in complaining. It looks like Andy's pupils are the least of his problems...At home in Applesett, things aren't all rosy either. Barbara is forced to take a job as a postie to help pay the mortgage, which means finding someone to look after Tom and Reuben. When two old friends move into the village it looks like the problem has been solved, but it soon transpires that rural life is not for everyone.As always the book is peppered with the hilarious and heartwarming incidents that a life living and working with children inevitably contains.

Hank Paulson
Authors:
Hank Paulson

DEALING WITH CHINA takes the reader behind closed doors to witness the creation and evolution and future of China's state-controlled capitalism.Hank Paulson has dealt with China unlike any other foreigner. As head of Goldman Sachs, Paulson had a pivotal role in opening up China to private enterprise. Then, as Treasury secretary, he created the Strategic Economic Dialogue with what is now the world's second-largest economy. While negotiating with China on needed economic reforms, he safeguarded the teetering U.S. financial system. Over his career, Paulson has worked with scores of top Chinese leaders, including Xi Jinping, China's most powerful man in decades. In DEALING WITH CHINA, Paulson draws on his unprecedented access to modern China's political and business elite, including its three most recent heads of state, to answer several key questions:How did China become an economic superpower so quickly?How does business really get done there?What are the best ways for Western business and political leaders to work with, compete with, and benefit from China?How can the West negotiate with and influence China given its authoritarian rule, its massive environmental concerns, and its huge population's unrelenting demands for economic growth and security?Written in an anecdote-rich, page-turning style, DEALING WITH CHINA is certain to become the classic and definitive examination of unlocking, building, and engaging an economic superpower.
