'This book will be a story like no other because this will not be a story about a life rather a story about a search for a life.' Chris Evans The story of how one council estate lad made good, really very good, and survived - just about - to tell the tale.... Chris Evans' extraordinary career has seen him become one of the country's most successful broadcasters and producers and a well-known face in his own right. From his early years on Manchester's Piccadilly radio to Don't Forget Your Toothbrush, The Big Breakfast, and TFI Friday for Channel 4, Chris changed the TV landscape during the '90s. And on BBC Radio 1's Breakfast show and as owner of Virgin Radio, he ushered in the age of the celebrity DJ. His relentless pursuit of success and subversive style were his trademarks. But then the 'Chris Evans show' and Chris Evans' life became frighteningly interchangeable. The more outlandish the antics, whether on or off screen or air, the better. The celebrity girlfriends and the nights out drinking. Rolling into work late with 7m listeners waiting. For someone who took such pride in his work, what had happened? The country loved him, but what did Chris love? He'd achieved more than any kid who'd left school at 16 with a couple of O'Levels could have dreamed of. So why wasn't he happy? Chris Evans' autobiography will be an honest and revealing story of how a boy from a Warrington council estate who started work at 13 and held down 20 different jobs by the time he left school became the most widely acclaimed broadcaster of his generation. From the early death of his father that literally set him to work, to his brief and much publicised marriage to Billie Piper, he will talk frankly about the highs and lows of his, at times, turbulent career and how his drive to succeed impacted his personal life. This will be a fascinating and surprising life story from one of Britain's brightest and boldest pe... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Evans.

Sir Oliver Popplewell became, in his own words, officially 'judicially senile' after a distinguished career at the Bar, as a High court judge specialising in defamation, arbitration and sports law - an appropriate niche for a Cambridge cricket Blue. And in public life he achieved prominence as chairman of important public enquiries such as the Bradford Stadium disaster. Hallmark: A Judge's Life at Oxford, the sequel to his acclaimed autobiography, Benchmark: Life, Laughter and the Law, tells how he went to Oxford University to read Philosophy, Politics and Economics as the oldest undergraduate ever to be admitted - with considerable press and media coverage and good-natured amusement among family and friends. Here is a sharply observed, sympathetic yet critical picture of modern Oxford seen from the perspective of a leading judge and public figure who could contrast this experience with his Cambridge days from the late 1940s - a more formal time of compulsory wearing of gowns in town, back to college by 10.00 pm and when dons were addressed as 'Sir'. But academic rigour is maintained and Oliver Popplewell survives the stress of admission - with no privileges for former distinction. He admires his tutors, young enough to be his children but all 'obviously fearfully clever'. He grapples with the courses, finding economics surprisingly disappointing, statistics a waste of valuable time, philosophy a struggle - for an essentially practical legal mind - but politics richly fulfilling. He takes his examinations, frets over results and obtains his degree. But this is much more than the story of an older student. It is a hugely entertaining account of a life lived to the full. Oxford is woven into a rich social and cultural pattern and serves as a vantage point. He throws himself into sport - rugby, cricket and real tennis. His interests include the Oxford Union, journalism for the Oxford Mail, The Sunday Times, with reviews for the Times Higher Educational Supplement and he appears on BBC TV and radio. He does not neglect the law: he advises those preparing for the Bar and comments with value for professionals and lay-people alike on current legal issues. There is a cavalcade of leading personalities from academia, the law, entertainment, the arts and business. Also a stream of comment on contemporary life - penetrating, even acerbic but always sympathetic. Sir Oliver takes his readers into his confidence, shares his experience and presents a unique facet of a fascinating life which can serve as a warm but sharply observed social and cultural history of modern Britain.

The Cowboy and His Elephant

In the late 1980s, a female baby elephant was born into a herd that lived on the plains of southern Africa. Her mother has carried her for two years, and normally she would have nursed her for five more. But the close-knit family of wild elephants was to face a predator for which it was no match--humans. In a 'cull,' her family was slaughtered in a few moments. Only the newborn female's life was spared. Terrified and bewildered the young elephant was transported to America to be sold. There she met the person who was to change her life forever. Bob Norris is a cowboy with an enormous empathy for animals that overwhelms his other emotions. He was raised with a pet bear and as a boy decided to become a real cowboy. He saw his dream come true in Colorado on one of the larger horse-and-cattle ranches in America. Handsome as a movie star, he became the Marlboro Man and appeared on TV and on billboards around the world. But with the passing of years, and with his own family grown up, he felt the need for something that he could not name. When she came into his life by happenstance, the hurt, vulnerable little elephant tapped the fullness of Bob's empathy, and an incredible bond between the most unlikely of friends was forged. Bob adopted the baby orphan elephant--named Amy--and patiently set about helping her recover from the trauma of her ordeal. He had never seen a real African elephant up close, except in zoos. He was a horseman and breeder of champion quarter horses. But through close observation, gentle training, humor, and endless perseverance, Bob gradually coaxed Amy into overcoming her mistrust of humans, and indeed, her fear of the world. The little elephant became a 'hand' on Bob's ranch, tending to simple chores, riding the fences, and shadowing Bob on his horse. She developed a winning personality, and a strong character, and became a beloved member of the Norris family and partner to the ranch hands. But Bob knew from the start that the ultimate goal was for Amy to regain her confidence and her independence - even, if it were possible, to go back to the savannahs of Africa. This is the true story of how Amy and Bob came together. No one who reads The Cowboy and His Elephant can fail to be moved by such a simple tale of unlikely love.
