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.

Holmes, the infamous Chicago serial killer; William Brodie, the Edinburgh criminal mastermind who inspired The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde; and Bela Kiss, a Hungarian tinsmith with a most disturbing hobby: collecting women in gasoline drums.

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?
