Beatles A To Z
Anyone who talks trash on The Beatles is just looking for a fight. It’s as simple as that. There’s a reason they’re empirically and spiritually the most successful band of all time: they did it all, and in a shockingly short timeframe. The Beatles A to Z explores the kaleidoscopic world of the biggest band ever, through a funky alphabetized factoid format. We follow the four boys’ early days playing all-nighters in Hamburg and Liverpool, through their mop-top era and the height of the British Invasion, to experimentation (musical and otherwise) in India. The Beatles remain unrivalled in their effect on music and pop culture. This book revels in their cultural impact, and peeks into the lives of John, Paul, George and Ringo, the iconic albums, the hit singles and the epidemic of Beatlemania. This book looks at the life, art, collaborations, films and friendships and fun surrounding the greatest band of all time – all in a brilliantly illustrated A to Z format.

Winging It by Emma Isaacs
Are you ready to wing it?
CEO and entrepreneur Emma Isaacs forgot to draw up her life plan, and she doesn't have a list of five-year goals. She doesn't believe in work/life balance - after all she has five children and heads up Business Chicks, Australia's largest community for women.
Like Sheryl Sandberg, who told us to 'lean in' to find success, Emma wants to show us that you can't plan every detail and wait for the confidence to kick in before you begin; instead, take action now, do what feels right and figure the rest out as you go along. In other words, you've got to learn how to 'wing it' rather than wait.
Drawing on her own life and the stories of the many men and women she has met and interviewed - from Sir Richard Branson to Bill Gates to Girlboss Sophia Amoruso - Emma tells us how to:
* Turn a dream into a job
* Turn a job into a business
* Network like a champion
* Protect your time for the things that matter
* Get fired up not ground down by the kids/career juggle, and
* Understand that sometimes failure is part of the brief.
Emma shows us that often the only thing holding us back is ourselves; that you can follow your dreams; and that there's no reason not to start doing so right now.
