Shortlisted for the 2022 Sports Book Awards 'brave ... visceral ... a brilliant, brilliant read ... I would recommend this book to everyone.' Nihal Arthanayake, BBC Radio 5 Live 'so honest ... everybody should read Hooked to understand what anybody in this situation has been through.' Susanna Reid, Good Morning Britain 'a fantastic book ... a remarkable read.' Richard Madeley, Good Morning Britain 'Brave, poignant and very moving. This book will change lives.' Jamie Redknapp 'A courageous, emotional and vitally important book.' Jeff Stelling Paul Merson's wonderfully moving and brutally honest memoir of battling addiction for three decades. For twenty-one years Paul Merson played professional football. He won two First Division titles with Arsenal and was one of the finest players of his generation. But for thirty years Paul Merson has also been an addict. Alcohol, drugs, gambling: a desperately unenviable cocktail of addictions and depression which has plagued his entire adult life and driven him to the verge of suicide. 'I've come to realise that I'm powerless over alcohol ... I'm an alcoholic. My drinking and gambling have left a lot of wreckage.' Until recently the drinking and gambling were still raging. 'I wanted to kill myself. I couldn't go on anymore. I just couldn't see a way out.' Then something clicked. 'One day, I was walking home from the pub late on a Sunday evening, and I thought to myself: I've had enough of feeling like this, every day of my life. I rang up Alcoholics Anonymous the next day, and since then I haven't had a drink.' Hooked is Merson's wonderfully moving and brutally honest memoir of battling addiction, searingly charting his journey over three decades. It is absolutely unflinching in detailing his emotional and psychological troughs and in raking over the painful embers of an adult life blighted by such debilitating issues. Hooked will kick-start a crucial national conversation about addiction, depression and the damage they wreak. 'Addiction is the loneliest of places. You're a slave to insecurity and ego. But it has to be you that wants things to change. Never be afraid to talk: the more you talk about the addictions the more it takes the power out of them. You're never alone.'

More than anything, Brooke Malone’s mother wants Brooke to follow in her footsteps as the perfect trophy wife. The only problem is Brooke wants no part of that life. She did everything she was told as a child, and followed every rule hoping that one day she would earn her parent’s respect and maybe their love. But after the man she was being groomed to marry was killed in a car accident that left her critically injured, her world and her priorities changed. Now she’s in a new city, with a new job and working on a new life, all while trying to get her body whole again. She really wants to be left alone to discover parts of herself that have been buried for way too long. The last thing she’s looking for is a relationship, least of all one with a sexy co-worker. Lucas Mathews has always had a soft spot—and an eye—for the wounded, so when he spots Brooke in the hospital gym he isn't fooled by her confidence. On the outside, she exhibits self-assurance, strength and an air of perfection. Yet he sees more, he sees a saddened, vulnerable woman trying to convince everyone, including herself, that she’s fine. Their attraction is mutual. And chemistry…off the charts. But what Lucas really wants is Brooke’s heart, something she has no intention of giving to anyone ever again.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Renowned economist Andrew Smithers offers prescriptive advice and economic theory on avoiding the next financial crisis In The Road to Recovery, Andrew Smithers—one of a handful of respected economists to have accurately predicted the most recent global financial crisis—argues that the neoclassical consensus governing global economic decision-making must be revised in order to avoid the next financial collapse. He argues that the current low interest rates and budget deficits have prevented the recession becoming a depression but that those policies cannot be continuously repeated and a new consensus for action must be found. He offers practical guidance on reducing government, household, and business debt; changing the economic incentives for the management class that currently inhibit long-term growth; and rebalancing national economies both internally and externally. Further, he explains how central bankers must broaden the economic theories that guide their decisions to include the major factors of debt and asset prices. Offers practical, real-world economic policies for restructuring and rebalancing the global economic system Presents a modern economic theory for preventing the next collapse Ideal for economists, investors, fund managers, and central bankers Written by an economist described by the legendary Barton Biggs as "one of the five best, most dispassionate, erudite analysts in the world" As the global economy continues the long climb out of recession, it's imperative that central bankers and other economic decision-makers not repeat the mistakes of the past. The Road to Recovery offers prescriptive guidance on redesigning an economic system that is healthy, stable, and beneficial to all.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

The acclaimed author of Carved in Sand—a veteran investigative journalist who endured persistent back pain for decades—delivers the definitive book on the subject: an essential examination of all facets of the back pain industry, exploring what works, what doesn't, what may cause harm, and how to get on the road to recovery. In her effort to manage her chronic back pain, investigative reporter Cathryn Jakobson Ramin spent years and a small fortune on a panoply of treatments. But her discomfort only intensified, leaving her feeling frustrated and perplexed. As she searched for better solutions, she exposed a much bigger problem. Costing roughly $100 billion a year, spine medicine—often ineffective and sometimes harmful —exemplified the worst aspects of the U.S. health care system. The result of six years of intensive investigation, Crooked offers a startling look at the poorly identified risks of spine medicine, and provides practical advice and solutions. Ramin interviewed scores of spine surgeons, pain management doctors, physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, exercise physiologists, physical therapists, chiropractors, specialized bodywork practitioners. She met with many patients whose pain and desperation led them to make life-altering decisions, and with others who triumphed over their limitations. The result is a brilliant and comprehensive book that is not only important but essential to millions of back pain sufferers, and all types of health care professionals. Ramin shatters assumptions about surgery, chiropractic methods, physical therapy, spinal injections and painkillers, and addresses evidence-based rehabilitation options—showing, in detail, how to avoid therapeutic dead ends, while saving money, time, and considerable anguish. With Crooked, she reveals what it takes to outwit the back pain industry and get on the road to recovery.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

This so called "life" is a journey and it doesn't matter who you are—you are special and unique with something to offer and enjoy, period. The obstacles and detours the roads present are not any easier in one car or another; it just boils down to how you navigate your way through and around them. One of McGuirk's key principles centers on the concept of State, i.e. your state of mind, how you feel. State is the emotional fuel you want to fill up on--the things or experiences that make you feel good. Most people have been fueling up the wrong way their entire life and their state is not what it ought to be. They fill up on poor quality emotions then spend their lives trying to escape important things because they can't find a way to derive pleasure from them. One of the worst things people fill up on is alcohol and drugs—sure it helps temporarily, but it doesn't take long before they're coughing and sputtering on the exit ramp and nothing works for them any more—they're feeling guilty, unfulfilled, empty. Fueling up the right way is what successful people do—they fill up with it first thing in the morning, every day of their lives. They create their own happiness because they know that by feeling great, it will be easier to attain the abundance and success they really want. For the millions of people fueled on desperation, broken down and in need of repair, Under Construction is a shop. It is the place to learn how to give yourself a tune-up. McGuirk provides all the tools you need to keep from struggling on the road, but ultimately, it's your shop—you are the mechanic. If you're ready and willing to turn your world around and start really enjoying your life journey, Under Construction is the perfect guide. Quit pushing your rusting old car around and start taking laps in the winner's circle—with McGuirk navigating, you CAN do it!

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

In this politically astute and revelatory memoir, Patrick Brown weaves together three stories: the first is his 25-year education as a journalist and his parallel struggle with alcoholism; the second, the momentous situations he's found himself in as a reporter; and the third is China, which he first visited during the Tiananmen Square protests. In each chapter, Brown relates both a personal tale from his life and a corresponding aspect of Chinese history. The story starts as Brown describes how he begins to drink heavily under the stress of his first big assignment, tracking the rise of Solidarity in Poland and Lech Walesa, whose struggles he then compares to the idea and aftermath of revolution in China (both similar and shockingly different). From there, Brown reveals how his life in China is both unique and surprisingly familiar - and how his agile "butterfly mind" has allowed him, against expectation, to thrive in the middle of this enormous nation.
