My Side of the Story shares a narrative of G. Warren Collier's World War II experiences in the western European theater, as told to his daughter, Judy Collier Johnson. He shares the intimate detail of what it was like to be in the army during World War II through a series of letters and recollections. As a private serving the company commander as his driver, he was privy to the ways the army operated, which were frequently unorganized at best. Many times, Collier and his commander took a command car on dangerous scouting expeditions. At the same time he was driving for the commander, he was also serving as the company clerk since he was the only man in his company who could type. Th rough his work, he became acquainted with ordinary soldiers and spent as much time with them as possible. My Side of the Story paints a picture of lives of everyday soldiers during World War II and the joys and heartaches they shared.
Many years have elapsed since I was excommunicated from The House of Yahweh in Abilene, Texas. In the interim, this religious organization has come to be known as the largest doomsday cult in America. How did The House of Yahweh, Abilene, get this sordid reputation? As you read, you will come to understand. Buffalo Bill Hawkins, now known as Yisrayl B. Hawkins, the Elder and Overseer of this organization, declared to me, I am The House of Yahweh. He also declares, I am without sin. The scriptures in the editions of the bible that he now publishes have been rewritten, cleverly twisted to fit his own personal doctrines. The scriptures plainly show that you will know him by his fruit, in other words, by what he has produced. I am sharing these fruits with you. How did this organization begin? Why do people who seem rational, who seem to have a sound mind, get wrapped up in something that Yisrayl Hawkins has caused The House of Yahweh to become? Why do these people change their last names to Hawkins? Why do they pierce their ear to a door of The House of Yahweh building in order to go into servitude to a mere man? Why do the men secretly practice polygamy? How would a person stay in a religion like this? Why did I stay as long as I did? Why did I leave? I am writing my personal account to tell you my side of these events. I was there at the beginning when The House of Yahweh was actually a wonderful place to be. I was also there when things slowly began to change for the worse, like a frog placed in a cool pot of water which the fire slowly brings to a boil.
A Dishy Tell-All Memoir from the Great Ape A funny thing happened on the way to the Empire State Building...and now, for the first time since his 1933 debut, King Kong, thelegendary ape of the big screen, tells his fascinating story. In My Side, he answers: What was his romantic lead Fay Wray covering up? Not much, according to the wonderful and frank creature who sneaked several good peeks. For which great power was on-screen nemesis Bruce Cabot a secret agent? Don't ask. Read. How did Kong -- a serious and trained actor -- refuse to parrot his lines, unlike some of his costars, and get into character? Kong also offers anecdotes and memories of David O. Selznick, Frank Sinatra, Bill Cosby, Stalin, and many more luminaries from his long and storied career. Gritty and powerful, this 132-foot simian's story will take you from the darkest jungle to atop the highest skyscraper of the day, but always keep you laughing with his hilarious side of the story.
Greg Norman (known universally as the Great White Shark for his rugged blonde Aussie looks) will go down in golfing history as one of the greatest of all time - the finest performer to grace a golf course between the golden era of Jack Nicklaus and the modern era of Tiger Woods. Before Woods, Greg had occupied the Official World No. 1 Rankings far longer than any other player in the modern game, with an incredible 331 weeks at the top. Greg sensationally won The Open Championship twice, in 1986 and 1993, has 20 PGA and European Tour wins to his name and 29 top ten finishes in majors. But despite such huge success, he is perhaps best loved as the nearly man in so many other big tournaments: particularly The Masters, US Open, and PGA Championship. He was equally a victim of his own bad luck, and good luck on the part of his fellow golfers (losing a near-certain PGA Championship win in 1986 after Bob Tway holed a bunker shot, and losing The Masters the following year in a playoff by an even more miraculous 45-yard chip shot from Larry Mize), and a couple of infamous 'chokes' where Norman's wobble-prone putting got the better of him. But it's not just a story of the highs and lows of a golfing legend either. Greg Norman has made a huge success in business since leaving the top rank of golf, with an empire worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and he offers the motivational truths that have driven him to win on both the fairway and beyond. Using his familiar charm and humour, Greg's own book will be an honest look at the long and arduous path to success - a journey littered with hard work, hard decisions, knowing when to trust your instincts, handling failure, psychological doubts, finding self-belief and learning from mistakes - an inspiration to any sportsman.

It’s a story you shouldn’t be reading, it’s a personal journey that was originally written by a father for only his daughter’s eyes. It’s an emotional story that shows how a father was brought to his lowest point in his life where he could see no return. But the father held on; his daughter was his vision, his daughter was what kept him going, and kept them both from harm’s way. It’s all about a fathers love and devotion to his daughter, in a world where he struggles to grasp how parents can play games in aid to gain for themselves, in a world where fathers at times are pushed aside and their voices ignored and unheard, just like a child’s, just like the life he lived. A father leaves his story for his daughter so she can understand in years to come, how he fought for her, how he gave up his life just so his daughter could be brought up in a normal way. It’s now a fathers turn to speak up, to show his daughter and maybe the world how and why they have an unbreakable bond, to show how this bond has been tested and pushed to its limits. This story is for every person, for every mum for every dad who has a child they love, it’s for every person who has a parent they love and cherish because this story will make you fall in love with how a father loves his daughter and how far he will go to make sure she is fine. It’s a story to show the world, nothing can beat the love of your child and nothing should, it’s a story he hopes will change the thinking of many people one day.
The level of venom, the intensity and frequency of the readers' rants in the daily newspaper compelled the publication's news reporter to call me for an interview. Some of the language in the rants was so graphic, they were unsuitable for print, he said. Wow! They were talking about me. Have you ever felt like you've been hit by a brick or punched in the stomach? Well, that is how I felt at that particular moment when he shared the comment with me. In spite of the graphic description that some people had of me, it's important to stay true to who you are. I've lived my life being optimistic and positive, building bridges, nurturing relationships, working with diverse groups of people, serving others, communicating, and providing effective and proven leadership oftentimes under duress, uncertainty, limited resources, and being misunderstood. This book will show you how I did it and how you can overcome negative publicity, adversity, challenges, and develop leadership skills that will impact your life and others for years to come.
In the fifth installment of Amy Stewart's clever and original Kopp Sisters series, the sisters learn some military discipline--whether they're ready or not--as the U.S. prepares to enter World War I. It's the spring of 1917 and change is in the air. American women have done something remarkable: they've banded together to create military-style training camps for women who want to serve. These so-called National Service Schools prove irresistible to the Kopp sisters, who leave their farm in New Jersey to join up. When an accident befalls the matron, Constance reluctantly agrees to oversee the camp--much to the alarm of the Kopps' tent-mate, the real-life Beulah Binford, who is seeking refuge from her own scandalous past under the cover of a false identity. Will she be denied a second chance? And after notoriety, can a woman's life ever be her own again? InKopp Sisters on the March, the women of Camp Chevy Chase face down the skepticism of the War Department, the double standards of a scornful public, and the very real perils of war. Once again, Amy Stewart has brilliantly brought a little-known moment in history to light with her fearless and funny Kopp sisters novels.
