              Also published in the U.K. under the title 'The Kennedy Curse'. Those who dwell in the House of Kennedy work hard, live hard, and win at all costs. But just how much has it cost them? The Kennedy name is synonymous with American royalty. The family commitment to public service i...s legendary and enduring. But all their wild charisma has been dashed by disgrace and tragedy: Assassinations. Murder. Plane crashes. Fatal accidents. Mental illness. Drug overdoses. Alcohol abuse, and plenty of sex scandals. This family of widows and fatherless children has been cursed with nearly unimaginable losses -- yet even today, there remains a glamorous aura around the indomitable Kennedys. #1 bestselling author James Patterson once again tells a spellbinding story to maximum dramatic effect (The Wall Street Journal)--and this one is all true.

              "The All Blacks had last won the Rugby World Cup in 1987, when Prime Minister David Lange and the Labour team likewise scored a convincing victory. In 2011, New Zealand again hosted the Rugby World Cup, and once again two national teams emerged triumphant - the All Blacks, led by... captain Richie McCaw, and the National Party, led by Prime Minister John Key. This book tells the story of this 2011 election, set against the backdrop of a country caught up in rugby heroics and the aftermath of several life-changing natural disasters. It's the story of an odd campaign - of leaders' debates where the most memorable line, 'show me the money!', comes from a Hollywood movie; and of a meeting for a 'cup of tea', intended to promote the return to Parliament of one party, ACT, which ends up igniting the re-entry to Parliament of another, New Zealand First. It's the story of an election that winds up toppling two party leaders (Labour's Phil Goff and ACT's Don Brash) and ends, at last, the three-year political honeymoon of a third, John Key, even as he wins another term. Kicking the Tyres includes among its authors some of the winners of the 2011 election - New Zealand First's Winston Peters; the Greens' Metiria Turei; National's Steven Joyce; United Future's Peter Dunne; and the Greens' Mojo Mathers. What went wrong is the subject of chapters written by participants from other parties, including Labour's Grant Robertson and high-ranking candidates from the Maori Party, Mana and ACT. Kicking the Tyres views the campaign and the election from a variety of angles and perspectives. New Zealand's wittiest political commentator, Jane Clifton, writes about 'the worm' and other inanities of 2011. Jon Johansson and Colin James discuss John Key's leadership and the impact of the Pike River mine disaster and the Christchurch earthquakes on the government and the country. Other contributors examine the images and 'brands' of New Zealand's political parties and their leaders; the role of Fac

              NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Reilly pokes more holes in Trump's claims than there are sand traps on all of his courses combined. It is by turns amusing and alarming. -- The New Yorker Golf is the spine of this shocking, wildly humorous book, but humanity is its flesh and spirit. -- ...Chicago Sun-Times Every one of Trump's most disgusting qualities surfaces in golf. -- The Ringer An outrageous indictment of Donald Trump's appalling behavior when it comes to golf -- on and off the green -- and what it reveals about his character. Donald Trump loves golf. He loves to play it, buy it, build it, and operate it. He owns 14 courses around the world and runs another five, all of which he insists are the best on the planet. He also claims he's a 3 handicap, almost never loses, and has won an astonishing 18 club championships. How much of all that is true? Almost none of it, acclaimed sportswriter Rick Reilly reveals in this unsparing look at Trump in the world of golf. Based on Reilly's own experiences with Trump as well as interviews with over 100 golf pros, amateurs, developers, and caddies, Commander in Cheat is a startling and at times hilarious indictment of Trump and his golf game. You'll learn how Trump cheats (sometimes with the help of his caddies and Secret Service agents), lies about his scores (the Trump Bump ), tells whoppers about the rank of his courses and their worth (declaring that every one of them is worth $50 million), and tramples the etiquette of the game (driving on greens doesn't help). Trump doesn't brag so much, though, about the golf contractors he stiffs, the course neighbors he intimidates, or the way his golf decisions wind up infecting his political ones. For Trump, it's always about winning. To do it, he uses the tricks he picked up from the hustlers at the public course where he learned the game as a college kid, and then polished as one of the most bombastic businessmen of our time. As Reilly writes, Golf is like bicycle shorts. It reveals a lot

              Was Governor FitzRoy the man popular history would have us believe? Sir Charles Augustus Fitzroy's tenure as Governor of New South Wales and Governor-General of Australia between 1846 and 1855 was plagued by rumour. Mention FitzRoy and he is either not remembered at all, remember...ed as the Governor who caused his wife's death or as a shameless womaniser. Are these damning comments justified? It was the time of Wentworth, Parkes and Lang, giant political figures in New South Wales' early history. FitzRoy's administration oversaw matters such as settlement of the contentious crown land issue and squatters' rights, discovery of gold, education and introduction of the railway. A man of the British Empire, he served firstly his King, then a young Queen Victoria as the Crown's Vice Regal representative at Prince Edward island, the Leeward Islands and finally, New South Wales. This commissioned biography portrays FitzRoy in a light not previously considered, from a personal, family oriented aspect, stretching from childhood to the battlefields of Waterloo. Going beyond the rumours set in motion in 1847, it reveals a worldly diplomat, a Governor who encouraged those around him to act on their beliefs.
