Angela Kelly, building on the work of the great designers and milliners who have worked with Her Majesty through the years - including couturiers Sir Norman Hartnell, Sir Hardy Amies, and Ian Thomas, and milliners such as Simone Mirman and Freddy Fox - brings her own imagination to bear on an iconic 'uniform' that suggests continuity and tradition, and ensures that the wearer is always the most visible person in a room or a crowd.'-Anna Wintour, Vogue When Angela Kelly and The Queen are together, laughter echoes through the corridors of Buckingham Palace. Angela has worked with The Queen and walked the corridors of the Royal Household for twenty-five years, initially as Her Majesty's Senior Dresser and then latterly as Her Majesty's Personal Advisor, Curator, Wardrobe and In-house Designer. As the first person in history to hold this title, she shares a uniquely close working relationship with The Queen. In The Other Side of the Coin, The Queen has personally given Angela her blessing to share their extraordinary bond with the world. Whether it's preparing for a formal occasion or brightening Her Majesty's day with a playful joke, Angela's priority is to serve and support. Sharing never-before-seen photographs - many from Angela's own private collection - and charming anecdotes of their time spent together, this revealing book provides memorable insights into what it's like to work closely with The Queen, to curate her wardrobe and to discover a true and lasting connection along the way. 'The book documents the unique working relationship between Her Majesty The Queen and the woman who has been her Personal Assistant and Senior Dresser for more than two decades: Angela Kelly. It gives a rare insight into the demands of the job of supporting the Monarch, and we gain privileged insight into a successful working relationship, characterized by humor, creativity, hard work, and a mutual commitment to service and duty. Angela is a talented and inspiring woman, who has captured the highlights of her long career with The Queen for us all to share.' -Samantha Cohen, Assistant Private Secretary to The Queen (2011-2018)

Bud Abbott Alone: A One-Person Play in Two Acts...

“Bud Abbott was the greatest straight man ever.” (Groucho Marx)During their prime in the 1940s and early 1950s, Abbott and Costello were the most popular comedy duo in show business. They first became a team in burlesque, graduated to radio with Kate Smith, then Broadway with comedian Bobby Clark and Carmen Miranda; and, ultimately, to the movies, making their debut supporting Allan Jones and Nancy Kelly in One Night in the Tropics (1940).  Their own films, including Buck Privates and In the Navy (1941), Rio Rita (1942), Hit the Ice (1943), and their biggest hit, Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948), made them one of biggest movie box-office stars of their day. Yet, all was not well with Bud and Lou. Aside from both of them having major health problems, there were disputes over money, billing, and a tragedy that changed their lives forever. The team broke up in 1957. Costello would die two years later, and Abbott would be faced with major issues from the Internal Revenue Service. Michael B. Druxman’s one-person play, Bud Abbott Alone, joins the retired straight man, now living on his Social Security, contemplating voicing himself in an animated cartoon TV series based on him and his late partner. He ponders his life, remembering the salad days of his career. One simple set. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Victor Warren, Laura Patinkin Urken.

America's strength has always been her people. Never has this strength been more evident than in time of war. From the Revolution on, the history of America at war has always been the history of ordinary men and women doing extraordinary things. But in the past, it has taken years, sometimes even decades, for those heroic men and women to be heard, for their individual stories to be told. In the current era, with electronic media making the news instantaneously available around the world, one would think that would no longer be the case.In America's latest war, the electronic media brought us only the men and women at the top - leaders like General Schwarzkopf, General Kelly, and Pete Williams, the official voice of the Pentagon. But the real stories, the stories of courage under fire, were half a world away - in Khafji and Dhahran, Basra and the barren wastes of the Iraqi desert. The stories were there because America's men and women were there, with M-16s and artillery, in tanks and in attack aircraft, in the tents and in the trenches.Every service was represented - Army, Navy, Air Force, and U.S. Coast Guard. The career soldiers were there and so were the citizen soldiers of the reserves. These are their stories, told in their own way. These are the Desert Voices. 1. Language: English.

A breathtaking fantasy set in an extraordinary fairy-tale world, with deceptive twists and an addictively adorable cast who are illusory to the end. Just when I thought I'd figured each out, Sara Ella sent me for another ride. A wholly original story, Unblemished begins as a sweet melody and quickly becomes an anthem of the heart. And I'm singing my soul out. Fans of Once Upon a Time and Julie Kagawa, brace yourselves.” (Mary Weber, award-winning author of the Storm Siren Trilogy) Eliyana can't bear to look at her own reflection. But what if that were only one Reflection - one world? What if another world exists where her blemish could become her strength? Eliyana is used to the shadows. With a birthmark covering half her face, she just hopes to graduate high school unscathed. That is, until Joshua hops a fence and changes her perspective. No one, aside from her mother, has ever treated her like he does: normal. Maybe even beautiful. Because of Joshua, Eliyana finally begins to believe she could be loved. But one night her mother doesn't come home, and that's when everything gets weird. Now Joshua is her new, and rather reluctant, legal guardian. Add a hooded stalker and a Central Park battle to the mix and you've gone from weird to otherworldly. Eliyana soon finds herself in a world much larger and more complicated than she's ever known. A world enslaved by a powerful and vile man. And Eliyana holds the answer to defeating him. How can an ordinary girl, a blemished girl, become a savior when she can't even save herself? 9780785214786 N N ©2016 Sara Ella;(P)2017 Thomas Nelson Publishers http://www.audible.de/pd/B072L364QN?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true http://www.audible.de/pd/B072L364QN?source_code=PNHFA145032019009G&ipRedirectOverride=true Noteworthy (Unabridged) 26.95 AVAILABLE Noteworthy (Unabridged) Noteworthy (Unabridged) Riley Redgate It's the start of Jordan Sun's junior year at the Kensington-Blaine Boarding School for the Performing Arts.....

Unfortunately, she's an Alto 2, which - in the musical theatre world - is sort of like being a vulture in the wild: She has a spot in the ecosystem, but nobody's falling over themselves to express their appreciation. So it's no surprise when she gets shut out of the fall musical for the third year straight. But then the school gets a mass email: A spot has opened up in the Sharpshooters, Kensington's elite a cappella octet. Worshiped...revered...all male. Desperate to prove herself, Jordan auditions in her most convincing drag, and it turns out that Jordan Sun, Tenor 1, is exactly what the Sharps are looking for.

As a man, he must save the empire. London, 1909: the British Empire seems invulnerable. But Captain Vernon Kell, head of counterintelligence at the War Office, knows better. In Russia, revolution; in Germany, an arms race; in London, the streets are alive with foreign terrorists. Kell wants to set up a Secret Service, but to convince his political masters, he needs proof of a threat - and to find that, he needs an agent he can trust. The playing fields of Eton may produce good officers but not men who can work undercover in a munitions factory that appears to be leaking secrets to the Germans. Kell needs Wiggins. Trained as a child by Kell's old friend Sherlock Holmes - he led a gang of urchin investigators known as the Baker Street Irregulars - Wiggins is an ex-soldier with an expert line in deduction and the cunning of a born street fighter. 'The best,' says Holmes. Wiggins turns down the job - he 'don't do official'. But when his best friend is killed by Russian anarchists, Wiggins sees that the role of secret agent could take him towards his sworn revenge. Tracking the Russian gang, Wiggins meets a mysterious beauty called Bela, who saves his life. Working for Kell, he begins to unravel a conspiracy that reaches far beyond the munitions factory. Fast paced, action packed, full of twists and violent, sometimes poignant shocks, The Irregular: A Different Class of Spy marks the arrival of a brilliant new writer. 9781473663251 N N ©2017 H. B.

What about man's time? What about transcendental time? Where are we in time? The concept of time is one of those things we humans take entirely for granted. Few people ever dedicate the effort to learn what time is? David W. Allan has been measuring time for over 54 years as an atomic clock physicist. He has sliced the second into billionths, quadrillionths, and even smaller. Such precision has enabled developments like GPS and cellular communication, something we all are aware of. The author's devotion to learning and the pursuit of truth has revealed a surprisingly strong connection between things spiritual, scientific, physical, political, historical, and mental. It's about time we became aware of the ideas that bind us to the eternal. This is (according to the author) the most exciting time in the history of the planet... and we are living it! Note: David W. Allan is one of the most renowned scholars in the world of horology (the study of time). His writings come from a decidedly LDS/Mormon perspective. While he does not recruit or admonish listeners in any way, he sites his tradition and occasionally makes reference to the scriptures that inform his belief system. Along with Glenn Beck, David (and some 14 million others) have discovered that there is far more common ground between Latter-day Saints, Christians, and Jews that most would have imagined. This book is witness to that truth. He encourages all to listen to it and see if it does not true to your heart. He encourages those of his own faith to explore the book for the very same reasons, truly it is a new exploration for all. UNKNOWN N N ©2016 David W. Allan;(P)2017 David W.

But among the most popular perceptions of the Civil War is the Lost Cause", which romanticized the war's toughest and most famous fighters and continues to fuel the popularity of generals like Robert E. Lee. Alongside Lee, no one epitomized the chivalry and heroism celebrated by the Lost Cause more than JEB Stuart (1833-1864), the most famous cavalry officer of the Civil War. Stuart was equal parts great and grandiose, leading the cavalry for the Confederacy in Lee's Army of Northern Virginia until his death at the Battle of Yellow Tavern in May 1864. Stuart was a throwback to the past, colorfully dressing with capes, sashes, and an ostrich plumed hat, while sporting cologne and a heavy beard. But he was also brilliant in conducting reconnaissance, and he proved capable of leading both cavalry and infantry at battles like Chancellorsville. As the eyes and ears of Robert E. Lee's army, none were better, despite the fact that he was only in his late 20s and early 30s during the Civil War, far younger than most men of senior rank. Nevertheless, Stuart's tough fighting was and still is eclipsed by his reputation for audacious cavalry movements. He embarrassed the Army of the Potomac by riding around it twice, making him famous and embarrassing Union generals like George McClellan. However, Stuart's role at Gettysburg was far more controversial. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Hayley Cresswell. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tnwd/000681/bk_tnwd_000681_sample.mp3.

This practical guide is for anyone contemplating coaching as a career: coaches in training, coaches already trained and hoping to build a thriving business. This totally revised second edition offers step by step guidance on what to do: 'Jenny Rogers has the rare ability to offer the lessons of decades of experience in ways which are practical to implement and easy to absorb. This book is comprehensive - offering both high level concept and lots of important details on the kinds of things that differentiate the successful coaching professional from the crowd. Perhaps most importantly she offers proven, thorough answers to critical questions that many people would not even think to ask in setting up or developing their business.' Phil Hayes, Chairman, Management Futures, UK 'Another great book from Jenny Rogers. I remember using the first edition of her book very early on in my career and remain hugely grateful for the informed insights and sensible suggestions. As always with Jenny's books, a new edition does not simply mean a few typos corrected and a couple of new references. In addition to the really helpful sections I remember from the first edition (e.g. on how to manage networking and selling whilst remaining authentic), Jenny has drawn on her experience and the courage to address some of the other really difficult issues that concern new coaches. How much should I charge? How will I find my clients? What training should I do? Even Where should I coach and What should I wear? I train new coaches every year and these are the questions they ask. I will certainly be recommending Jenny's book - and drawing on it myself to help the coaches on my courses have the best possible start to their careers.' Jane Cook, Managing Director, Linden Learning, UK 'In a marketplace crowded with quick fixes and unrealistic promises, this book is a breath of fresh air! Drawing on the author's extensive experience, this book lays out a sober, practical approach, while also offering encouragement and inspiration. In her warm, compelling style, Jenny Rogers explores the essential steps towards building a sustainable coaching business-from improving your own coaching skills, to developing your brand, to marketing your services with integrity.' Leni Wildflower, PhD, PCC, Knowledge Based Coaching in the Workplace, Fielding Graduate University, USA 'This book is a must read for anyone who wants to earn a living through coaching. Jenny combines natural enthusiasm and positivity with a good dose of realism by applying a pragmatic and sometimes humorous lens to the business of coaching. No matter how experienced you are in running a coaching business, there is something in this book for everyone - from pragmatic hints and tips at start up stage through to some insightful checks and balances to ensure a consistently high service from established businesses. Jenny demonstrates a real depth of understanding about the questions that will/should be at the forefront of the minds of many new coaches about to set up in business. She has generated in depth answers, pragmatic lists of best practice and sound advice. Her sound advice will help pave the way to your success as a coach.' Susan Binnersley, MD h2h resources limited, UK 'I must admit when I picked up this book I wondered how Jenny could improve on her original book Developing a Coaching Business, however Building a Coaching Business is the essential guide for starting, growing and sustaining a business. Tailored to coaching, it provides a step-by-step guide full of tested methods, insight, ideas and practical information, and written in Jenny's engaging style. Her facilitative approach to selling is a gift. Having come from the public sector selling was one of my biggest challenges but when I use the facilitative model I feel confident and professional. This is a book that challenges and inspires, and you will find yourself recommending it to other people, who may not even be coaches.' Margaret Kelly, Executive Coach, Margaret Kelly Consulting, UK & Ireland Knowing all this can shorten the route to success, at the same making the expectations more realistic. 'I strongly recommend this book. Jenny Roger addresses what one needs to know and be aware of for building and developing

Gute Unterhaltung und eine Fülle von Informationen. Lehrstunden mit Pat Kelly, einem erfolgreichen Unternehmensgründer (und gewandten Erzähler), in Sachen Management: Wie baut man ein Unternehmen auf? Wie motiviert man die Angestellten zu maximalen Leistungen? Wie ist man der Konkurrenz immer einen Schritt voraus? Kelly muss es wissen: Sein Unternehmen Physician Sales and Service setzte sich innerhalb eines knappen Jahrzehnts an die Spitze seines Bereiches. An unconventional management book by an unconventional businessman: how Patrick Kelly built a company where everybody works hard, has a great time, makes a ton of money--and leaves competitors wondering what hit them. Patrick Kelly is the founder of Physician Sales & Service (PSS), which in only 15 years has gone from a start-up company in the mundane business of distributing medical supplies to doctors offices to the industry leader with $1 billion in revenues. Its annual growth rate is nearly 60% and today it has 3,600 employees. What s Kelly s secret? A dynamic, even nutty culture! PSS employees can fire their bosses. Truck drivers have 'CEO' on their business cards. There are no policy manuals. The company s leaders--there s no such thing as a 'manager' at PSS--are required to study Plato and Dostoevsky. Many have become millionaires, and despite the pressure, they love their jobs. PSS is that most unusual of organizations--a fast-track, high-growth business that s also a great place to work. Kelly himself is the ultimate success story: after growing up in an orphanage, flunking out of college, and serving in Viet Nam, he built an incredibly successful career--his way. In Faster Company, he tells you how he did it--how he built the company that has been dubbed 'a cross between the U.S. Marines and Animal House.' Patrick Kelly (Jacksonville, Florida) is Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Physician Sales & Service (PSS)/World Medical, Inc.

This practical guide is for anyone contemplating coaching as a career: coaches in training, coaches already trained and hoping to build a thriving business. This totally revised second edition offers step by step guidance on what to do: 'Jenny Rogers has the rare ability to offer the lessons of decades of experience in ways which are practical to implement and easy to absorb. This book is comprehensive - offering both high level concept and lots of important details on the kinds of things that differentiate the successful coaching professional from the crowd. Perhaps most importantly she offers proven, thorough answers to critical questions that many people would not even think to ask in setting up or developing their business.' Phil Hayes, Chairman, Management Futures, UK 'Another great book from Jenny Rogers. I remember using the first edition of her book very early on in my career and remain hugely grateful for the informed insights and sensible suggestions. As always with Jenny's books, a new edition does not simply mean a few typos corrected and a couple of new references. In addition to the really helpful sections I remember from the first edition (e.g. on how to manage networking and selling whilst remaining authentic), Jenny has drawn on her experience and the courage to address some of the other really difficult issues that concern new coaches. How much should I charge? How will I find my clients? What training should I do? Even Where should I coach and What should I wear? I train new coaches every year and these are the questions they ask. I will certainly be recommending Jenny's book - and drawing on it myself to help the coaches on my courses have the best possible start to their careers.' Jane Cook, Managing Director, Linden Learning, UK 'In a marketplace crowded with quick fixes and unrealistic promises, this book is a breath of fresh air! Drawing on the author's extensive experience, this book lays out a sober, practical approach, while also offering encouragement and inspiration. In her warm, compelling style, Jenny Rogers explores the essential steps towards building a sustainable coaching business-from improving your own coaching skills, to developing your brand, to marketing your services with integrity.' Leni Wildflower, PhD, PCC, Knowledge Based Coaching in the Workplace, Fielding Graduate University, USA 'This book is a must read for anyone who wants to earn a living through coaching. Jenny combines natural enthusiasm and positivity with a good dose of realism by applying a pragmatic and sometimes humorous lens to the business of coaching. No matter how experienced you are in running a coaching business, there is something in this book for everyone - from pragmatic hints and tips at start up stage through to some insightful checks and balances to ensure a consistently high service from established businesses. Jenny demonstrates a real depth of understanding about the questions that will/should be at the forefront of the minds of many new coaches about to set up in business. She has generated in depth answers, pragmatic lists of best practice and sound advice. Her sound advice will help pave the way to your success as a coach.' Susan Binnersley, MD h2h resources limited, UK 'I must admit when I picked up this book I wondered how Jenny could improve on her original book Developing a Coaching Business, however Building a Coaching Business is the essential guide for starting, growing and sustaining a business. Tailored to coaching, it provides a step-by-step guide full of tested methods, insight, ideas and practical information, and written in Jenny's engaging style. Her facilitative approach to selling is a gift. Having come from the public sector selling was one of my biggest challenges but when I use the facilitative model I feel confident and professional. This is a book that challenges and inspires, and you will find yourself recommending it to other people, who may not even be coaches.' Margaret Kelly, Executive Coach, Margaret Kelly Consulting, UK & Ireland Knowing all this can shorten the route to success, at the same making the expectations more realistic. 'I strongly recommend this book. Jenny Roger addresses what one needs to know and be aware of for building and developing
