The stunning and groundbreaking six-volume book series by #1 NY Times bestselling author and award winning investigative journalist Ian Halperin. CONTROVERSY is the rollicking, scandalous, untold story behind the power, greed and corruption by the world's most powerful elite. Based on years of extensive research , undercover forays, and candid interviews, Halperin's no-holds barred investigation offers the most extensive journey ever into incredible, tumultuous and shadowy lives of the world's most famous, (alive or dead) , including The British Royal Family, The Kardashians, Bill Gates, Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, The Clintons, Donald Trump, Michael Jackson, Prince, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Michael Jordan, Howard Stern, Jeffrey Epstein, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Pope Francis, Mick Jagger, The Church of Scientology, Vladimir Putin, The Kennedys, Oprah Winfrey, McDonald's and many more.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Shortlisted for The Green Carnation Prize 2014 'This is not a fairytale. This is a story about how sex and money and power police our dreams.' Clear-eyed, witty and irreverent, Laurie Penny is as ruthless in her dissection of modern feminism and class politics as she is in discussing her own experiences in journalism, activism and underground culture. This is a book about poverty and prejudice, online dating and eating disorders, riots in the streets and lies on the television. The backlash is on against sexual freedom for men and women and social justice – and feminism needs to get braver. Penny speaks for a new feminism that takes no prisoners, a feminism that is about justice and equality, but also about freedom for all. It's about the freedom to be who we are, to love who we choose, to invent new gender roles, and to speak out fiercely against those who would deny us those rights. It is a book that gives the silenced a voice – a voice that speaks of unspeakable things.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Based on true events, Sex, Lies & Stellenbosch uncovers what really goes on behind closed doors in the seemingly up-standing community of Stellenbosch, one of South Africa's wealthiest small towns, where 3,400 dollar millionaires live (before they invested in Steinhoff shares). Written as fiction to protect the innocent, the book exposes the explosive dark truths of the Winelands' elite. All is revealed through the eyes of stay at home mom, 49-year-old Jen, who is the wife of John, a renowned wine farmer and businessman. Jen, like many of her privileged friends, lives a charmed life provided by her husband, in exchange for conjugal sex and obligatory wifely gratitude. When Jen stumbles upon her playboy husband in a compromising position with his sexy employee, things fall apart. Jen is forced to choose between leaving her marriage, jeopardising her standing and stability in the community or turning a blind eye to his infidelity. The book follows Jen's passage to self-discovery and self-fulfillment, while other characters' perspectives move the story forward as each is privy to (and eventually reveals) at least one ‘truth’ or ‘lie’ which Jen must face. Jen's exposition of her husband's infidelity inadvertently mirrors the underbelly of the patriarchal and often duplicitous community of the seemingly perfect Stellenbosch. Led by prominent wine farmers, international businessmen and renowned academics, business and private interests, even if ethically compromised, are staunchly guarded. The unfolding chapters irreverently explore both the emotional growth of the protagonist, Jen, as well as the moral ambiguities of the other players in the book. -- Publisher's description.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

In this riveting popular history, the creator of You Must Remember This probes the inner workings of Hollywood’s glamorous golden age through the stories of some of the dozens of actresses pursued by Howard Hughes, to reveal how the millionaire mogul’s obsessions with sex, power and publicity trapped, abused, or benefitted women who dreamt of screen stardom. In recent months, the media has reported on scores of entertainment figures who used their power and money in Hollywood to sexually harass and coerce some of the most talented women in cinema and television. But as Karina Longworth reminds us, long before the Harvey Weinsteins there was Howard Hughes—the Texas millionaire, pilot, and filmmaker whose reputation as a cinematic provocateur was matched only by that as a prolific womanizer. His supposed conquests between his first divorce in the late 1920s and his marriage to actress Jean Peters in 1957 included many of Hollywood’s most famous actresses, among them Billie Dove, Katharine Hepburn, Ava Gardner, and Lana Turner. From promoting bombshells like Jean Harlow and Jane Russell to his contentious battles with the censors, Hughes—perhaps more than any other filmmaker of his era—commoditized male desire as he objectified and sexualized women. Yet there were also numerous women pulled into Hughes’s grasp who never made it to the screen, sometimes virtually imprisoned by an increasingly paranoid and disturbed Hughes, who retained multitudes of private investigators, security personnel, and informers to make certain these actresses would not escape his clutches. Vivid, perceptive, timely, and ridiculously entertaining, The Seducer is a landmark work that examines women, sex, and male power in Hollywood during its golden age—a legacy that endures nearly a century later.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Much has been written about money-how to invest, save, become a millionaire, get out of debt, find financial freedom, change the monetary system, manage a business, hedge or save taxes. So what makes this book stand out from those already in the bookshops? Written for lay reader and expert alike, 30 Lies is a response to a newly emerging trend, where peoples' interest in money is not just to try and make more of it. But to understand better the causes of the increasingly contradictory money world they find themselves in. Some of the issues: income inequity, increasing stress in making ends meet, decay of social systems, evaporation of pensions, polarisation of wealth, third-world indebtedness, Enrons and more. This book promises a simple understanding of these issues. But it goes further. This book not only exposes misleading flaws and "lies" in many universally accepted and unquestioned assumptions about money-it dissolves them! Things they didn't say after reading this book: "Anyone interested in the truth must buy this book." George W. Bush "This book has been very helpful. Now I know for sure there is nothing in the world more important than money." Deepak Chopra "Great book-turns economics on its head." soroS egroeG "This explains it-why God has gone bankrupt and we're still in business."

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

When she joined a spiritual organization in an attempt to regain control of her life, Karen Jonson had no clue that she would one day become a Hindu nun living in the US ashram of two men she called her gurus. She certainly never guessed that both of them would turn out to be conmen and that she would expose their dark secrets to the world. But that is exactly what happened. Her mission led her in several directions - including approaching an investigative reporter and an FBI agent, organizing a group of ex-devotees to support the gurus' victims, sharing insider information with prosecuting attorneys, and using social media to expose the organization.Sex, Lies and Two Hindu Gurus chronicles a world that is spoken of only in hushed whispers. It exposes the twisted goings-on inside the dubious spiritual cult she was part of and gives readers a rare insight into a dangerous con game. The perversions the gurus indulged in, how they preyed upon the vulnerabilities of their followers, swindled them and ruined their lives, and why no one has stopped the fake gurus from sexually violating underage girls - every detail comes under scrutiny. It is a thriller comparable to any piece of fiction. It is also a crime drama, and a cautionary tale for people seeking to connect with the divine.
