              One of the most prolific and commercially successful artists in modern pop music, Elton John has won six Grammy Awards, five Brit Awards and sold more than 300 million records during a career spanning over half a century: his Candle in the Wind 1997 remains the bestselling single... of all time. Just in time for his farewell world tour, this lavish, unofficial retrospective commemorates Elton's incredible life and career. Fully illustrated throughout, it contains more than 235 images, including rare and previously unpublished photographs. The book covers everything from his childhood as a piano prodigy to his early days playing West End gigs and his fortuitous meeting-and subsequent enduring partnership-with lyricist Bernie Taupin; it goes back to the song that started it all, Your Song, and charts Elton's meteoric rise to stardom, his challenges along the way, and his tireless work for many charities, including the Elton John AIDS Foundation. This is the ultimate keepsake for all Elton John fans.

              Stephen King at the Movies (Hardback)

              Surely America's greatest storyteller, no single author has been adapted more regularly than Stephen King. With sixty-five existing movies and thirty television shows, and many more to come, the concept of the King adaptation lies at the core of what we understand as Hollywood en...tertainment, the essence of horror, and the landscape of American life. Illustrated with a fabulous array of familiar and unusual iconography, this is the most comprehensive account of the films and television series adapted from the work of Stephen King ever put together. Every Children of the Corn movie has been accounted for; every remake and reboot wrestled into submission; all the dark recesses of King's imagination brought out into the light. Including fresh critical analysis, interviews, behind-the-scenes revelations and biographical detail, this is both a King completist's dream and a must for all movie fans. Here is the chance to delve deep into such terrifying and beloved movies and television shows as Carrie, Salem's Lot, The Shining, Cujo, Stand By Me, Misery, The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, and such modern marvels as Castle Rock, Mr. Mercedes, Pet Sematary, It: Chapters One and Two, and Doctor Sleep.

              Springsteen: Album by Album
               

              Springsteen: Album by Album (EPUB ebook)

              By White, Ryan

              For over 40 years Bruce Springsteen has stood astride the rock 'n' roll stage like a musical colossus, his 18 studio albums - from the 1973 debut, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J., to 2014's High Hopes - the testament of a life dedicated to musical prowess and committed songwriti...ng. Garnering critical acclaim since the beginning of his recording career, his albums have reflected deeply-felt passions and concerns, from the state of the American working man in The River and Nebraska, to the highs and lows of personal relationships in Tunnel of Love; from the bleak visions in Darkness on the Edge of Town to the often unrecognized anger of Born in the U.S.A. No fewer than nine of his studio releases have topped the album charts in the United States, where Bruce Springsteen has sold over 75 million albums in total (out of 120 million worldwide), and received 20 Grammy awards in the process. And his recording (or indeed performing) career shows no sign of slowing down or losing its cutting-edge impetus - the last of the US chart toppers was in fact his latest album, High Hopes. 'The Boss', after four dynamic decades, is still at the top of his game.

              Are exams getting easier? It is a headline that screams from our newspapers every August when the exam results are published. Of course, we all tend to look at the world through rose-tinted glasses and nothing is rosier than the past. Thus, we believe that we, as kids, had it har...der, that we got by just fine without mobile phones and computers and that learning was an altogether more difficult business - especially exams. Are they getting easier or are our children getting smarter? What better way to come to your own conclusion on this thorny subject than to take yourself back to that nerve-racking moment when the invigilator uttered those portentous words: `Okay, you may turn over your paper and begin'? Are You Smarter Than a Millennial? gives you the chance to inhabit the mind of a student of the 1990s or 2000s, a time when Tony Blair occupied Number 10, home ownership rocketed and we were told an end had come to `boom or bust'. Test your wits on genuine questions from mathematics, verbal and non-verbal reasoning examinations from that bygone era and find out if you measure up. Also discover for yourself whether exams were becoming easier even back then.

              Depeche Mode: Faith and Devotion

              They were such devout futurists that they even came from a New Town. Emerging from the unlikely locale of Basildon at the dawn of the Eighties, the unassuming Depeche Mode became pioneers of British electro-pop. Surviving the abrupt early departure of band founder and chief songw...riter Vince Clarke, they quickly gathered a fervent cult following before powering into the mainstream. Dave Gahan, Martin Gore, Andrew Fletcher and Alan Wilder took their dark, venal songs of sex, religion, obsession and death to the world's arenas and stadiums. Over four decades, Depeche Mode have seduced millions from Moscow to Montevideo. Yet it has never been an easy ride. Along the way there have been crippling bouts of self-doubt, depression, intra-band fighting, alcohol abuse... and the catastrophic heroin addiction that almost killed the charismatic yet vulnerable Gahan. From the band's earliest stirrings in Essex to the eve of their 40th anniversary, Faith and Devotion is a tale of triumph from adversity: the extraordinary history of a unique global synth-rock phenomenon. It's the story of Depeche Mode.

              Woody Allen: A Retrospective
               

              Woody Allen: A Retrospective (EPUB ebook)

              By Shone, Tom

              December 1, 2015 marked Woody Allen's 80th birthday, followed four months later by the 50th anniversary of his screen debut as one of the major writer-directors of modern cinema. With nearly 50 movies to his credit, from cult slapstick films, to romantic comedies, to introspectiv...e character studies and crime thrillers, Woody Allen's work is still keenly anticipated prior to a new release. From his directorial debut to his latest release Irrational Man, Woody Allen's output has always been prodigious, making more or less a film a year since the early 1970s. He has won numerous accolades, including four Oscars, nine BAFTAs, two Golden Globes and in 2014 the prestigious Cecil B. DeMille award for contribution to cinema. In this timely retrospective, Tom Shone concisely reviews Woody Allen's entire career. His informed commentaries are combined with many classic quotes from Allen that define his self-deprecating humour and acute thinking about his life and times.

              Johnny Depp: A Retrospective (EPUB ebook)

              Johnny Depp is one of the most enigmatic, alluring and gifted actors of his generation, whose charismatic screen presence has brought to life some of cinema's most enduring characters, from the tragi-comic Edward Scissorhands and the fantastical Willy Wonka to the murderous Sween...ey Todd and the swashbuckling Captain Jack Sparrow. This retrospective provides illuminating commentary on each of Johnny Depp's movies, from his first ever role in A Nightmare on Elm Street in 1984 through to The Lone Ranger. Lavishly illustrated with over 250 images and behind-the-scenes stills from the movies themselves, Johnny Depp: A Retrospective is a fitting tribute to one of the big screen's most unique talents and eternally popular icons.
