Sometimes hilarious and frequently heartbreaking, this is Gordon Ramsay’s full life, from tenements and poverty to top-notch restaurants and fame.

    Living among the Sachakan rebels, Lorkin does his best to learn about them and their unique magic.

Sonea searches for the rogue, knowing that Cery cannot avoid assassination forever, but the rouge's influence over the city's underworld is far greater than she feared. His only weakness is the loss of his mother, now locked away in the Lookout.

    Here's the straight (and not-so-straight) scoop that every Elton John fan has been waiting for - from the addictions, toupees, affairs, and scandals to the triumphant later years. Elton John has sold over 200 million records and has more than 56 Top 40 singles. He has won five Grammy awards, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and a Tony. Rolling Stone ranks him number 49 on their list of the 100 greatest artists of all time. Yet no book published in the US has so successfully captured the passion and complexity of Elton John's life, much less his music.

    A deeply divisive figure, Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900) remains an enigma to this day. Infamous for his startling assertion that "God is dead", he is often misrepresented. In this illuminating account of Nietzsche's life and work, Robert Wicks skilfully navigates the controversy that continues to surround one of today’s most famous but least understood thinkers. Exploring the impact of Nietzsche's Christian upbringing and his childhood on his beliefs, Wicks demonstrates that, far from being a nihilist, Nietzsche offers a positive and understanding of human nature.

    Epistemology is the philosophical study of knowledge. Without knowledge, scientific enquiry is meaningless and we can’t analyse the world around us. But what exactly is knowledge and how do we obtain it? Should we trust our senses? When is belief knowledge? Presuming no prior experience, Robert Martin covers everything in the topic from scepticism and induction to Kant’s transcendentalism. Clear and readable, this audiobook is essential for philosophy students and a much needed introduction for the general reader.
