Imagine a three-week-long first date in Siberia catching venomous water shrews; and later a wedding attended by Eastern European prime ministers and their bodyguards wielding machine guns. Then a life spent living and working with snakes. Lots of very; very poisonous snakes and other venomous creatures ... everything from the Malaysian king cobra to deadly scorpions. Welcome to Bryan Grieg Fry's world. In this action-packed ride through Bryan's life you'll meet the man who's worked with the world's most venomous creatures in over 50 countries. He's been bitten by 26 poisonous snakes and stung by three stingrays - and survived a near-fatal scorpion sting while deep in the Amazon jungle. He's also broken 23 bones; including breaking his back in three places; and had to learn how to walk again. But when you only research the venom you've collected yourself - the adventures; and danger; will just keep coming ... Dividing his time between scientific research and teaching at the University of Queensland; and TV filming and collecting expeditions around the world; Bryan and danger are never far from one another.

Like a lot of men; Jesse Fink never thought it would happen to him. But it did. His wife of 10 years and mother of his child walked out on him and into the arms of another man. In that moment he lost his best friend; his soul mate; his family; his identity. His wife's new lover even got his dog. What came next was a freefall of the soul that would take him from contemplating cutting his wrists to sleeping with hundreds of women. LAID BARE is a brutally honest account of one man's emotional and mental oblivion after separation and divorce. Jesse's search for love and pleasure saw him jump headlong into the freewheeling and sometimes dangerous world of online dating. He visited brothels and massage parlours. He crossed the Pacific for doomed affairs. He disastrously moved in sight unseen with his high-school dream girl; a woman he hadn't spoken to for 25 years but reunited with on Facebook. He flew off to Hollywood to connect with yet another beautiful woman he sparked with online and found himself in the kitchen of the real-life Bridget Jones. And he managed to get his heart broken all over again with a brilliant but turbulent young artist. With remarkable frankness; Jesse opens up about his complicity in the failure of his marriage; his battles with OCD; his struggles as a single dad; his sex addiction and his desperate desire to find love. He shares it all the good; the bad and the ugly. His chance at personal salvation finally comes in the unconditional love of his eight-year-old daughter. This time; if he pays attention; he might just get it right.

When Sonia Faleiro set out to report on Bombay's bar dancers; she thought she knew what she would find: downtrodden; voiceless women; the helpless victims of predictable poverty. Instead she meets Leela: nineteen; charismatic and fearlessly outspoken; Leela has been dancing in Bombay's bars since she was thirteen.\With her sharp wit and stubborn optimism; she is the best-paid dancer in a bar on the notorious Mira Road. Leela has a 'husband' (who is already married); a few lovers whose names she can't remember; an insufferable mother camping out in her flat; and an adored best friend; Priya - the most beautiful woman she has ever seen. But when an ambitious politician shuts down the city's bars; Leela is forced into the most precarious kind of sex work and must trade her proud independence for mere survival.\Beautiful Thing is the vivid; intimate portrait of a young woman fleeing abuse and poverty to build a life on her own terms; in a city equally bent on reinventing itself.\Review: ''A small masterpiece of observation and intimate reportage.'' - William Dalrymple.

As the Ash Wednesday bushfires raged around her in a small Victorian town in February 1983; a young mother stood between her two young daughters and the massive fireball heading straight for them.\Ann tells her dramatic story with candour and disarming humour beginning with her working-class childhood growing up in a village in Lancashire; England. Her fateful decision to marry the young Australian from Melbourne took her to the other side of the world for the adventure of a life time. Twelve years later; her peaceful family life was shattered.\This story takes us far beyond the drama of Ash Wednesday. Her reflections and insights are profoundly illuminating and inspirational. This is a story about living and loving; about hope and determination; about facing your worst demons and staring them down.\The bushfires that ripped through Victoria and South Australia on Ash Wednesday in 1983 killed 75 people. It was a deadly reminder to the tens of thousands who had moved out of the cities about how dangerous living in the bush could be.\As the bushfires raged around her in the small Victorian town of Upper Beaconsfield; a young mother stood between her two young daughters and the massive fireball heading straight for them. Ann Fogarty sustained burns to 85% of her body and was left with horrendous injuries; giving her almost no chance of survival. Unbelievably; her daughters were unscathed.\\Ann Fogartty's story is one of courage; love and; ultimately; extraordinary resilience. She dedicates the book to her two daughters; Sarah and Rachel; describing them as ''my two wonderful reasons for fighting so hard''. And fight is what Ann has had to do; every day; for the last thirty years; since her life was forever changed in the Ash Wednesday fires of February 1983. Forged with Flames will leave you astounded and amazed at what a human being can endure and withstand.\Heralded as a hero; Forged with Flames is the account of Anne's remarkable fight for life in the aftermath of the fires and the bumpy road towards recovery since. Ann tells her dramatic story with candour and disarming humour beginning with her working-class childhood in Lancashire; England; where as a bright young student she gained a place in the local grammar school and; with great determination; became a top athlete in the school while battling painful shyness throughout her teens. A romance with an Australian man brought her to the other side of the world and events she could never have imagined.\\The story documents her struggle to recover emotionally; mentally and physically and the constant battle to survive. The healing properties of faith; spirit and love are explored; as are the seemingly small acts of compassion that contributed to her recovery. A huge fan; Ann was serenaded by James Galway in her hospital room in the Burns Unit. A letter from Cliff Richard also gave her an enormous boost. After the fires; she struggled to regain some semblance of her former life as mother; wife and active member of the local community; helped by a variety of people; all of whom were touched by her gentle spirit and grace.\Awards:\Winner of the 2013 Australian Christian Book of the Year\\\About the Author: Ann Fogarty was born in Lancashire; England in 1950 and graduated as a nursery nurse in 1968. After marrying an Australian in 1970 she came to Australia under the ''Ten Pound Pom'' scheme; and settled in Berwick before moving to Upper Beaconsfield 3 years later. She worked in the kindergarten in Beaconsfield for 5 years. On 16th February in 1983; exactly 30 years ago; she was caught up in the Ash Wednesday bushfires that cut great swathes of devastation through Victoria and South Australia. She was hit by a massive fireball while protecting her two young daughters from the firestorm raging out of control through the bushland surrounding their house; and sustained serious burns to 85% of her body. Her daughters escaped without injury.

For more than a decade Daryn Cresswell gave his all for the Sydney Swans. Over a career spanning 244 games he was smart; strong; unflinchingly brave and unwaveringly loyal. But when the curtain fell; things changed fast. Embroiled in a world of fast earns; chronic gambling and entangled in a web of lies; Cresswell lost everything—his wife; his money; friendships and; in the end; almost his life. In a very real way it was only jail that could save him. Here Cresswell tells his story; one of hard-earned highs and self-inflicted lows. It's the story of a driven man who risked everything and lost. It's also the story of a man who clawed his way back.

p>'One day;' Philip said; 'I'd like to build something bigger ... Like a house. We could just buy a block of land; you know; the four of us; and have a go.'It was just an idea. then it started to take shape. In this frank; funny and thought-provoking memoir; Richard Glover describes how he and his friend Philip and their partners built a house in the bush on weekends. It was a huge and exhausting undertaking ... not least because they decided to use mudbricks.'Imagine this - with mudbrick you have a building that is made out of the very earth it stands on ... there is another thing: the stuff is free. Once we buy the land we'll have no money left. this way we can get started as soon as we have the block.'In the end it took three years simply to make the bricks. As for the house itself ...But the process gave Richard the opportunity to examine things he had never quite reconciled to himself - big things like what it means to be a man; the nature of male relationships; fatherhood - and to challenge himself in the kind of blokey environment he had rejected.Above all; the mud house proved that even if it 'wasn't the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel' there is nothing like the satisfaction of making something with your own hands.

Brian Freeman; former special forces soldier; Kokoda Track record-breaker and discoverer of the lost battlefield of Kokoda; had a belief that walking the track could have a special benefit for wounded Australian servicemen and the families of those killed in Afghanistan or Iraq. In 2012; he proved his theory right by organising two treks that produced some extraordinary results for those who took part - from the former commando who lost both legs in Afghanistan to the father who lost his son there. Walking Wounded is the inspiring accounts of the men and women on those treks - how walking in the footsteps of those who fought on the track has helped them piece their lives back together. It's also a deep insight into their service; the actions that saw them wounded and the slow process of recovery and rehabilitation that rarely features in our news stories. Written with compassion and true empathy; Walking Wounded is as important as it is moving; and paves the way for the treks with veterans and their families to continue.

The true story of an ordinary young woman plunged into the heady world of wealth and glamor through a passionate; irresistible affair with a charismatic millionaireThe morning after meeting Hugh; I was heading out the door when I saw I had a new message. I opened it cautiously and saw six words that made my heart skip a beat."I need to see you again."Ava Reilly was just starting her career in PR when she was sent to meet one of the industry's major players. She was naive to the ways of the entertainment business; but determined to make a good impression. What she wasn't prepared for was the electricity she would feel from the moment she first met this man. Soon they had embarked on a stormy; seductive love affair; with liaisons in opulent hotels across Australia and around the world. The thrill of their encounters was tainted by constant pressure to keep their relationship out of the public eye; as the danger of being discovered could put not only their personal lives but their professional lives at risk. Ava also felt the weight of her conscience—she had never; ever imagined herself as the other woman. However; it had been a long time since she'd been able to truly trust a man; and Hugh seemed to be only one who could come close to breaking down the protective walls Ava had built around her heart. Working day to day in an industry where secrets are currency; Ava's lips were tightly sealed about what was happening between her and Hugh—until she began to make her confessions.Confessions of A Millionaire's Mistress is the true story of an innocent young woman who found herself swept into a romance with a charismatic; wealthy; powerful man who is used to getting what he wants—whatever the cost.

Flesh Wounds
HK$ 177.00
The Co-op
A mother who invented her past; a father who was often absent; a son who wondered if this could really be his family. 'Not since UNRELIABLE MEMOIRS by Clive James has there been a funnier; more poignant portrait of an Australian childhood.' The Australian Financial Review Richard Glover's favourite dinner party game is called 'Who's Got the Weirdest Parents?'. It's a game he always thinks he'll win. There was his mother; a deluded snob; who made up large swathes of her past and who ran away with Richard's English teacher; a Tolkien devotee; nudist and stuffed-toy collector. There was his father; a distant alcoholic; who ran through a gamut of wives; yachts and failed dreams. And there was Richard himself; a confused teenager; vulnerable to strange men; trying to find a family he could belong to. As he eventually accepted; the only way to make sense of the present was to go back to the past - but beware of what you might find there. Truth can leave wounds - even if they are only flesh wounds. Part poignant family memoir; part rollicking venture into a 1970s Australia; this is a book for anyone who's wondered if their family is the oddest one on the planet. The answer: 'No'. There is always something stranger out there. The Co-op Interviews Richard GloverRichard Glover discusses his most recent book; Flesh Wounds is a comic romp for anyone whose family was not what they ordered. It's been described by the British writer Jeanette Winterson as ''Sad; funny; revealing; optimistic and hopeful'' and by the Sun-Herald as ''heartbreaking and hilarious''. Richard's weekly humour column has been published in the Sydney Morning Herald for over twenty years. He also presents the top-rating Drive show on ABC radio in Sydney.

Must-Read Biographies Everyone Should Include into their Personal Collection

Biographies provide a glimpse into the past or capture the life and experiences of an icon, allowing readers to walk in someone else’s shoes. A meaningful biography can serve as a great teacher, offering valuable life lessons and teaching readers to be like the subject or sometimes, not to be like the subject. Fictional stories make for fun reads as well, but nothing is as compelling and inspirational as real-life recollections of one’s life. Noteworthy biography recommendations that everyone should own, or at least read about, are mentioned below.

Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela

The late Nelson Mandela was a former President of South Africa, serving from 1994 to 1999. He was known to be a strong supporter of the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa. Nelson Mandela’s autobiography contains intricate details about this leader who was revered and respected by many people, including world leaders, around the world. The book documents significant moments in his life – his childhood, growing up to be a freedom fighter, being imprisoned for 27 years, and his role in building a democratic South Africa.
