              Fire Woman: The Extraordinary Story of Britain's First Female Firefighter
               

              Fire Woman: The Extraordinary Story of Britain's First Female Firefighter (EPUB ebook)

              By Reynolds, Josephine

              The inspiring true story of an extraordinary young woman who triumphed in a man's world, making history in the process. Signing up to the Fire Brigade in 1981, Josephine Reynolds was Britain's first ever female firefighter. Her life of service saw her fight the fiercest forest... fires in a generation, explosions at a petro-chemical plant and a chauvinistic, macho culture that didn't believe she was up to the job. In order to be accepted by the men who risked their lives alongside her, she had to become one of them - whether this meant crawling on hands and knees through rat-infested sewage tunnels, or downing pints with the boys after a shift. Moving and uplifting, this story of one extraordinary woman's life is guaranteed to make readers laugh, cry and smile.

              Tiny Acts of Rebellion: 97 Almost-Legal Ways to Stick It to the Man (EPUB ebook)

              By Fulcher, Rich

              Let's face it, who has the time or inclination to topple a government these days? I mean, with daily obligations like video games and heavy drinking, it's hard to find the time to even get a parking ticket overturned. Never fear, Tiny Acts of Rebellion will show you hundreds of w...ays to revolt against the tedium of everyday life. Whether it's making rude gestures to a hotel clerk under the desk or making your own 'Do Not Disturb' sign that says 'Come In If You Like Swordplay', Rich Fulcher's inventive collection will allow you to unleash your rebellious side - without getting arrested. Including: unlatching your safety belt before the plane has fully stopped; squeezing a spot in the ATM camera; driving through a lonely red light in the dead of night; leaving a handful of coppers as a tip for bad service.
