'Brilliant biography of an undersung late-blooming treasure . . . subtly profound as well as wickedly entertaining, this biography does its subject scintillating justice' Mojo Cruel to Be Kind is the definitive account of Nick Lowe's uncompromising life as a songwriter and entertainer, from his days at Stiff Records, to becoming the driving force behind Rockpile, to the 1979 smash hit 'Cruel To Be Kind'. Nick's original compositions have been recorded by the best in the business, from enfant terrible of the New-Wave, Elvis Costello, to 'The Godfather of Rhythm and Soul', Solomon Burke; from household names, including Engelbert Humperdink, Diana Ross, and Johnny Cash, to legendary vocalists such as Curtis Stigers, Tom Petty, and Rod Stewart. His reputation as one of the most influential musicians to emerge from that most formative period for pop and rock music is cast in stone. He will forever be the man they call the 'Jesus of Cool'. 'Nick's poise as a singer, his maturity, and his use of tone is beautiful. I can't believe it's this guy I've been watching since I was a teenager' Elvis Costello, 2013 'The master of subversive pop' Nick Kent, NME, 1977 'Nick Lowe is such a f*cking good songwriter! Am I allowed to say that?' Curtis Stigers, 2016

In "Observations of a Results Oriented Conservative," Steve Gamelin isn't afraid to apply moral values to politics and other aspects of life. He provides Conservatives with an understanding of the validity of their instincts by objectively looking at Liberals and their behavior. Just as he did in order to create this bold moral analysis of the flaws of Liberals, Gamelin advises readers to adopt the following guidelines in their observations of the behavior of those around them: Use the "eyes of truth" to see through the deception and spin of Liberalism Apply good judgment to come to sound conclusions See the simplicity of what a lie is and evaluate those individuals who promote the lie Know why spin is nothing more than another word for lie Evaluate the sound bite and determine its intent Ignore conventional wisdom and evaluate for yourself Replace political correctness with moral correctness And most importantly, understand the Nixon Factor and how much it tells us about the Liberal It is not a political statement to want a moral government, says Gamelin, and it is not dirty politics to point out corruption within government.

Does absence really make the heart grow fonder? Can beggars be choosers? Is it always better late than never? Proverbs are short, well-known, pithy sayings that offer advice or words of encouragement and are used in everyday English without much thought ever being given to their meanings, or indeed, usefulness. In An Apple A Day Caroline Taggart explores the truth behind our favourite proverbs, their history and whether they offer any genuine help to the recipient. Did you know that The Old Testament has an entire book devoted to proverbs? Or that 'a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush' is a proverb from falconry that dates back to the Middle Ages? Many proverbs are still in use today, including the very famous 'slow and steady wins the race', which derives from one of the many fables of Aesop. Lighthearted but authoritative, An Apple A Day proves that proverbs are as useful today as they ever were.
