Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes makes the case that one percenters like him should pay their fortune forward in a radically simple way: a guaranteed income for working people
The first half of Chris Hughes' life followed the perfect arc of the American Dream. He grew up in a small town in North Carolina. His parents were people of modest means, but he was accepted into an elite boarding school and then Harvard, both on a scholarship. There, he met Mark Zuckerberg and Dustin Moskovitz and became one of the co-founders of Facebook.
In telling his story, Hughes demonstrates the powerful role fortune and luck play in today's economy. Through the rocket-ship rise of Facebook, Hughes came to understand how a select few can become ultra-wealthy nearly overnight. He believes the same forces that made Facebook possible have made it harder for everyone else in America to make ends meet.
To help people who are struggling, Hughes proposes a simple, bold solution: a guaranteed income for working people, including unpaid caregivers and students, paid for by the one percent. Hughes believes that a guaranteed income is the most powerful tool we have to combat poverty. Money - cold hard cash with no strings attached - gives people freedom, dignity and the ability to climb the economic ladder.
A guaranteed income for working people is the big idea that's missing. This book, grounded in Hughes' personal experience, will start a frank conversation about how we earn, how we can combat income inequality, and ultimately, how we can give everyone a fair shot.
Chris Hughes, the "Daily Mirror's" defence correspondent, was the first western reporter into Iraq after 9/11, the first into Saddam's secret bunker and the only one to visit Osama bin Laden's mountain lair. He was also the only western journalist present when American Marines killed and wounded unarmed demonstrators in Fallujah, sparking the savage insurgency. He's survived carjackings and missile attacks, watched mothers weep over the skeletons of sons dragged from mass graves and joined mercenaries flying crates of guns out of Baghdad. Hughes has been to every major troublespot in Iraq in a dozen visits, mixing with the SAS, British mercenaries and ordinary Iraqis; in "Road Trip To Hell", he tells their stories with wit and irreverence in a very readable style. He admits he's no expert on the Middle East - 'I wanted to call this book "Clueless in Gaza",' he writes, 'but George W Bush rarely invades places with potential for witty literary allusion' - but he has a fine eye for detail and black humour and gives a unique insight into a terrible, crazy war.

Chris Hughes walked away from the sizzling hot, smash hit show Love Island as its biggest star. Viewers fell in love with this cheeky, happy-go-lucky guy who surprised people by being unafraid to show his vulnerable side just as readily as having a laugh with his mates in the sun. They were captivated by the rollercoaster relationship between Chris and girlfriend Olivia and entertained by the bromance that developed between Chris and best pal Kem. But what really makes Chris tick? What made this down-to-earth country lad swap life on the farm with his family for red carpets and newspaper front pages? Chris reveals all about his life before the hit reality TV show and how the crippling anxiety he has suffered from before still haunts him to this day. He shares how he has found fame and adjusted to his new life as well as the things he is learning about himself as his life is put under the spotlight for all to see. With his trademark sense of humour and way with words, this is Chris's take on the world, his life laid bare.

Fire up those neurons, Sparky, and take my hand as we walk down memory lane, taking a left turn into the decade of excess, and the music of the 1980's. Why did it take us so long to harness the power of flickering video images with the stirring sounds that fired your imagination? MTV launched their initial broadcast with the Buggles, and went on to amaze us with "Sledgehammer", "Take On Me", "Addicted To Love" and more visually stunning eye candy than the human mind could possibly absorb. But, absorb we did. Remember the first time you saw Boy George dance across your TV screen and thought, "What the hell is that"? Sure, the song is great, and catchy as all get-out, but still. And Annie Lennox jumped in from the other side of the gender scale with a look that was just as fascinating, and, well, strangely erotic. We're not in Kansas anymore, Toto, are we? Forty two chart busting hits, no matter how well chosen and influential, can only begin to scratch the surface of a decade that launched popular music into overdrive. But, you've got to admit, this is a really good place to start. Great songs and stellar artists, sumptuously bound together in a strikingly illustrated digipak. Tucked inside is a loving essay from insightful industry veteran Kevin Flaherty, blended together with evocative rekkid bidness advertising from back in the day. So stack them high and (umm) watch them fly.
