Poirot And Me

Author:

David Suchet/Geoffrey Wansell

Synopsis:

In the summer of 2013 David Suchet filmed his final scenes as Hercule Poirot. After 24 years in the role, he will have played the character in every story that Agatha Christie wrote about him (bar one, deemed unfilmable) and he bids adieu to a role and a character that have changed his life. In POIROT AND ME, David Suchet tells the story of how he secured the part, with the blessing of Agatha Christie's daughter, and set himself the task of presenting the most authentic Poirot that had ever been filmed. Peppered with anecdotes about filming, including many tales of the guest stars who have appeared over the years, the book is essential reading for Poirot fans all over the world.

Made For Goodness

Author:

Desmond Tutu/Mpho Tutu

Synopsis:

As Archbishop of Cape Town during the Apartheid regime in South Africa, Desmond Tutu saw many shocking and violent incidents. Later, as Chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and a leading peace negotiator in troubled parts of the world, he heard appalling stories of man's inhumanity to man. Yet his firm conviction remains that we are 'made by goodness for goodness'. Tutu explains that, though we sometimes act out of depravity and despair, we know in our heart of hearts that we are not as we were meant to be, and were created to be so much more...

Picked Up, Patched Up And Sent Home

Author:

Carl Walker

Synopsis:

Like so many people, Carl Walker has used the NHS for a number of reasons throughout his life - some serious, others less so. From being caught red-handed testing a stethoscope on himself, and (unsuccessfully) attempting to remove a friend's ingrown toenail with a pair of pliers, to the health visitor who offers guidance that soothes Carl's newborn and restores sanity to his household, the specialists who help him manage his epilepsy, and the GP who assures him the worrying lump is not cancer, here are stories that speak to the experiences of normal folk, and remind us just what an amazing thing a public national health service really is.

Six Little Miracles

Author:

Janet Walton/Robert Ettinger

Synopsis:

Janet had been told she couldn't have children, so she and her husband Graham were overjoyed to find out she was pregnant. Then they told her it was not just one baby, but six! On 18 November 1983, Janet gave birth to the world's first all-female sextuplets: Hannah, Lucy, Ruth, Sarah, Kate and Jenny. Janet takes us through the reality of parenting six children of the same age - the extreme sleep deprivation, the bottle-feeding, and later the chaotic routine of getting the six of them to school on time. As they grew up, Janet kept a sense of humour through the teenage tantrums and boy trouble, and she watched her little girls blossom into individual, confident young women. She has loved every minute.

Unfair Trade

Author:

Conor Woodman

Synopsis:

In UNFAIR TRADE Conor Woodman traces a range of products back to their source to uncover who precisely is benefiting and who is losing out. He goes diving with lobster fishermen in Nicaragua who are dying in their hundreds to keep the restaurant tables of the US well stocked. And he risks falling foul of the authorities in Laos as he covertly visits the country's burgeoning rubber plantations, established to supply Chinese factories that in turn supply the West with consumer goods. In the process, he tests accepted economic wisdom on the best way to create a fairer world - and suggests a simpler but potentially far more radical solution.
