The No 1 Bestseller 'A fascinating read' Seán O'Rourke, RTÉ Radio One 'Fat' Freddie Thompson first appeared in court in 1997. He was sixteen and already aspiring to be a major crime boss. Over the next twenty years his criminal career would be marked by mayhem, brutality and murder. In 2000 a row over a failed drugs deal ignited a murderous feud in Dublin's south inner city. The Crumlin-Drimnagh feud's first victim was a friend of Thompson's and he led his Crumlin crew in a series of tit-for-tat killings. Sixteen young men would lose their lives over the next fifteen years. Meanwhile, childhood friend, Daniel Kinahan, had become a senior figure in his father Christy Kinahan's international crime cartel. Working with the Kinahan Cartel Thompson launched himself as a drugs dealer in Dublin. When another deadly feud broke out in 2016 - between the powerful Kinahans and veteran Dublin criminal, Gerry 'The Monk ' Hutch - Thompson was ready to get his hands dirty. But Thompson's loyalty would be his undoing. In August 2018 he was convicted of murder and jailed. Fat Freddie is a gripping account of the rise and fall of Freddie Thompson. Award-winning crime journalist, Stephen Breen, co-author of the No 1 bestselling The Cartel, has written the definitive portrait of a notorious Dublin gangster, a shocking story of double-crossing, vengeance and murder.

Freddie Fitzsimmons was among baseball's top pitchers during his 19-year career with the New York Giants and Brooklyn Dodgers. Famed for his knuckleball, Fitz also had the reputation as the game's best fielding pitcher. Fitzsimmons was both a fierce competitor and one of the most admired players of baseball's Golden Age. When discovered by Giants' manager John McGraw in 1925, Fitzsimmons became a household name to baseball fans around the country. A mainstay of the New York rotations of the 1920s and 1930s, Fitzsimmons pitched in the 1933 and 1936 World Series, where he suffered painful losses. Being traded to the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1937 rejuvenated Fitzsimmons and brought him back to the World Series one last fateful time in 1941. When his playing days ended, Fitzsimmons managed the Philadelphia Phillies and later coached for the Giants and several other teams. In Freddie Fitzsimmons: A Baseball Life, Peter J. De Kever brings to life Fitzsimmons's colorful character and most memorable games. Fitz's life in baseball spanned nearly half a century and brought him into contact with many of the game's luminaries, such as Babe Ruth, Bill Terry, Leo Durocher, and Willie Mays. A central player in the great 1941 pennant race, Fitzsimmons also witnessed Bobby Thomson's shot heard 'round the world a decade later. These and other stories figure prominently in this first biography of Freddie Fitzsimmons.

If you want to feel happier, more optimistic, more joyful, and resilient, Dr. Amen’s groundbreaking new book is for you. We’ve all felt anxious, sad, traumatized, grief-stricken, stressed, angry, or hopeless at some point in life. It’s perfectly normal to go through emotional crises or have periods when you feel panicked or out of sorts. It is how you respond to these challenges that will make all the difference in how you feel—not just immediately, but also in the long run. Unfortunately, many people turn to self-medicating behaviors, such as overeating, drugs, alcohol, risky sexual behavior, anger, or wasting time on mindless TV, video games, Internet surfing, or shopping. And even though these behaviors may give temporary relief from feeling bad, they usually only prolong and exacerbate the problems—or cause other, more serious ones. Is it possible to feel better—and make it last? Renowned physician, psychiatrist, brain-imaging researcher, and founder of Amen Clinics Dr. Daniel Amen understands how critical it is for you to know what will help you feel better fast, now and later. In Feel Better Fast and Make It Last, you’ll discover new, powerful brain-based strategies to quickly gain control over anxiety, worry, sadness, stress and anger, strengthening your resilience and giving you joy and purpose for a lifetime.

In MAGNIFICENT MIND AT ANY AGE Daniel Amen demonstrates that the true key to satisfaction and success at any age is a healthy brain. By optimising our brain function we can all develop the qualities of a magnificent mind, such as increased memory and concentration; the ability to maintain warm and satisfying relationships and better impulse control and mastery over potential addictions. Daniel Amen demonstrates how to develop a healthy brain through diet, natural supplements, vitamins, exercise, positive thinking habits, and, if necessary, medication. He also pinpoints specific ways to tailor your behaviour, nutrition and lifestyle to deal with common mental challenges such as memory problems, anxiety and depression, attention deficit disorder, and insomnia.

Part 1: Gunz As a teenager growing up in Asbury Park, NJ, there were never many positive options for Rasheen Jordan to choose from. Where as most 15-year-old kids might participate in boy scouts or recreational baseball, for Rasheen it was either drug dealing or street gangs. He and his friends chose both. But as the glamorous street life seems to lose its luster, Rasheen seeks other options outside of the ghetto. And as his new exit path becomes clear, he finds out that the ghetto is not the only thing he will leave behind! Part II: Rosez Rasheen is a unique college student to say the least. At 18, he's probably experienced more than the average 80-year-old. Does he belong in this college setting? Is he just playing college student? The dime bags of weed and his other illegal behaviors might say so. But is it possible for Rasheen to become more than just a street thug? Is it possible for him to leave his past behind and become the "college boy" that he is destined to be?
