Ever since we built machines that could transport us, there has been a desire to find ways to make them go faster. For some, going faster isn't enough - they want to be the fastest. This book celebrates those who have built the machines and driven them at ever greater speeds. This is The History of Speed. Bestselling motorsport writer Martin Roach tells the extraordinary story of those who have come to be obsessed by speed. From Camille Jenatzy, 'the Red Devil', who became the first man to drive at over 100kmh in 1899, through the golden age of Malcolm Campbell and his Bluebird, and on to the modern era of jet- and rocket-propelled cars, we have gone faster and faster. But this book is not just about these record-breakers, Roach also looks at the technology, the engines and the inventors who helped progress in speed at all levels, from Formula One to the supercars from the likes of Ferrari and Mercedes that are eagerly snapped up by collectors, rarely to be seen on the road. Accompanied by some of the most stunning images of the cars and those who made and drove them, Roach tells a wonderful story of innovation and invention. He talks to some of the great drivers to find out what inspires them to risk their lives, and finds out from engineers how they developed their ideas. Along the way, we hear some remarkable tales and anecdotes, but also find out how the pursuit of speed can also have its costs, with many tragic heroes and heroines falling along the way. If you've ever thrilled to the roar of a sports car engine, or loved the feel of the g-force as you accelerate away, or even looked on in wonder at a powerful engine, The History of Speed is a book that you will not want to miss out on.

This is the full story of the unstoppable rise of Clarkson, Hammond, May, and The Stig--and how they created one of the most famous and best loved TV programs of the 21st century

From humble beginnings as a 1970s motoring show, "Top Gear" has achieved world domination. Reaching a peak in the 1990s thanks to presenter Jeremy Clarkson, the original series faced the axe in 2001--but Clarkson and producer Andy Wilman successfully pitched a new format to BBC bosses, and "Top Gear" returned to become the irreverent, funny, and often controversial show we now know and love. The addition of Richard Hammond and James May completed the "Top Gear" dream team, and ratings soared as viewers tuned in to see the latest Star in a Reasonably Priced Car, arguments about the Cool Wall, and Power Laps by the mysterious Stig. Recent series have been defined by their madcap challenges--with predictably hilarious results. Hour-long specials such as the 1000-mile journey across Africa in cars bought for only $2,400, and a race to the magnetic North Pole in which Clarkson and May became the first people to drive a motor vehicle to the Pole, have cemented "Top Gear"'s reputation as much more than just a motoring show.

This book recounts the entire story of the most successful British band since The Beatles. From their humble beginnings to the break-up that shook the pop world, to their explosive and successful come-back tour a decade later, TAKE THAT - NOW AND THEN exposes the intimate details of the band that changed pop history. Containing hot behind-the-scenes information on the band's sell-out come-back tour, Take That - Now and Then gives a complete history of the band, with revelations on what's happened over the band's time together and apart, and allows you to relive the tour experience all over again. Formed in Manchester in the early '90s, everyone had their Take That favourite, from the cheeky Robbie to gorgeous Mark Owen. Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Jason Orange completed the group, and they went from strength to strength with their unique mix of high-energy dance tunes and soulful ballads. But theirs was not an easy beginning. Gruelling training schedules, tours across the nation in gay clubs that saw their bottoms pinched and empty school halls on a 'Safe Sex tour', all had to be endured before the boys finally 'made it' in the fickle world of pop music. But once they made it, boy did they make it! The only thing more certain than Take Take's next single going straight into the Top Ten was that they would clean up at every award ceremony going, both as a group and as individuals. But behind the glamour and success, tensions were mounting. Robbie Williams was sliding into the depths of depression, and on the eve of their 1995 tour, he left the band. By 1996, Take That were no more. Speaking exclusively to those inside the music industry who knew them best, many of whom have never spoken publicly about their experiences, music journalist Martin Roach recounts exactly what went on behind the scenes during those years, as well as providing first-hand accounts of the fickle world of pop from members of some of the UK's most prolific boy-band members.

Take That have acheived the biggest comeback in British pop history...and it seems they are only just beginning. In November 2008, Take That announced a summer tour for 2009 - yet even by their own remarkable standards, the frenzy for tickets was almost hysterical. Within three hours, all 700,000 tickets had been sold, forcing stadiums across Britain to be re-booked for extra dates. This was nothing new - the reformed `man band' had already broken British records for DVD sales, single sales and released the fastest selling album of 2008 with Circus. They are re-writing all the record books...literally. How have they done it? Why does Britain adore Take That? Take That - Now and Then explores this phenomenon while this new, fully updated edition is also a vast visual bible for all Take That fans. From the band's first `comeback album', Beautiful World, Take That's story is brought right up to the present day with full coverage of new singles, new albums, TV appearances, Ivor Novello and Brit Awards, growing families and spectacular stadium gigs. Further, the book will be hugely expanded with scores of colour and black and white photos, as well as rare and unseen memorabilia, ticket stubs, backstage passes, snap shots and studio snippets - taking fans from the early 90s and Robbie all the way to Take That's current `man band' status . Take That are the UK's biggest pop band - Now and Then: The Illustrated Story will be a must-have book for their millions of fans.

As a reaction to post-War austerity and social conservatism, the youth of Britain have consistently broken the mold, pioneering counter-culture movements across the world and shrugging off the shackles of old authority. The authors have amassed a wealth of exclusive interviews with key players from all the iconic groups, as well as stunning unpublished photographs from personal collections. The result is a beautifully produced visual and literary tribute to Britain's vibrant young underbelly and the passionate cauldron of creativity they continue to stir up.

While his peers have gradually fallen by the wayside, Albarn has survived Britpop to completely re-invent himself as the mastermind behind the global phenomenon that is Gorillaz.

And in 2015, with the release of The Magic Whip, Blur's first album for over a decade, Damon Albarn will take his place once more as an iconic jewel in the crown of the British music scene. This fully up-to-date book - the only available dedicated biography of Albarn - covers his multiple musical personas in depth, with first-hand interviews by those close to Albarn in his formative years, as well as social and musical context that covers the Britpop era and Albarn's re-emergence as the Godfather to the i-Pod generation.
