Back in 2002, Simon "Woody" Wood was dreaming up schemes to get free sneakers. Two weeks later, he was the proud owner of Sneaker Freaker and his life was never the same. From its early roots as a punk-style fanzine to today's super-slick print and online operations, the fiercely independent publication has documented every collab, custom, limited edition, retro reissue, Quickstrike, Hyperstrike, and Tier Zero sneaker released over the last 15 years. Woody's original premise that Sneaker Freaker would be "funny and serious, meaningful and pointless at the same time" has certainly been vindicated in The Ultimate Sneaker Book. With more than 650 pages jam-packed with insider knowledge and his own irreverent observations, the insane historical detail and otaku-level minutiae is beyond obsessive. Traversing 100 years of history, each chapter paints a rollicking picture of the sneaker industry's evolution. Air Max, Air Force, Adi Dassler, Converse, Kanye, Dapper Dan, Dee Brown, Michael Jordan, and Yeezy-along with obscure treasures like Troop, Airwalk, and Vision Street Wear-are all exhaustively documented. This is a definitive source of knowledge. This is... The Ultimate Sneaker Book!

As an interview subject, Steven Patrick Morrissey has made barbed observations about modern culture for more than three decades. As renowned for his elegantly waspish interviews as for his celebrated song lyrics, his wit and vitriol are finally brought together in a long overdue collection of interviews. Chronologically touching all the major points of his career, "Morrissey in Conversation: The Essential Interviews" comprises the most famous statements of Britain s greatest and least likely rock'n'roll star. The resurgence of Morrissey demonstrates how transient fashion can never truly eclipse a great maverick. All is contained within these pages: the groundbreaking days of the Smiths; the early solo triumphs; the hurtful ostracism by the music press that once lionized him; his return after years in the commercial wilderness. As much an archivist of British cultural life as a pop star, this collection preserves for posterity Morrissey s love of literary figures like Oscar Wilde, his fetish for late '50s/early '60s icons, reflections on his (a)sexuality, his militant vegetarianism, and his sardonic salvos against mediocrity in all its forms. Includes contributions from Neil McCormick, Simon Garfield, Biba Kopf, Max Bell, Dylan Jones, Mat Snow, Steven Daly, Stuart Maconie, Andrew Harrison, Will Self, Lynn Barber, Keith Cameron, Andrew Male and Paul Morley. All bear witness to this most singular talent, the modern pop song s chronicler of loneliness, perversity and an English working-class sensibility, now lost.

Asking For Trouble (Paperback): Simon Wood Asking For Trouble (Paperback)

R268 Discovery Miles 2 680 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The road to crime begins with a single decision-the wrong one. Not every decision belongs to the criminally minded. Some belong to the ill-informed, the weak and the plain unlucky. In these tales, trouble isn't an indiscriminate force of nature. It's a manmade occurrence that comes when called upon. In Making Ends Meet, Richard is so tired of supporting his deadbeat in-laws that he decides he's going to cut them out of his life-for good. Jamie Lassen is just Protecting The Innocent when he tells Chris Forbes to stop dating his sister. A Fender Bender with a drug dealer's car puts Todd in hock with the mob and a kingpin makes Todd responsible for a much larger debt. The Taskmasters picked Matt out just at the right time. Tired of his dead-end life, he was looking for someone to help him turn his life around. These tales and others prove that ASKING FOR TROUBLE is a case of good intentions gone bad and bad intentions gone worse. Praise for Simon Wood: "He writes like a dark demented angel." - Ken Bruen, author of PRIEST "Simon Wood packs his books with suspense, surprises & superb storytelling." - Ed Gorman, author of SLEEPING DOGS "Wood's ability to spin the commonplace into the quirky and then into the deadly puts me in mind of Roald Dahl's gift for the same." - The Drowning Machine "Simon Wood offers a literary roller coaster ride that thrills and terrifies on every page." - Sean Chercover, author of TRIGGER CITY "When Simon Wood is at the wheel, hang on for a page turner." -Chris Grabenstein, author of HELL HOLE "A supremely gifted writer." - Jason Pinter, author of THE MARK "Simon Wood is the 'Gary Oldman' of mystery fiction." -Tony Broadbent, author of THE SMOKE

""I enjoyed reading this book very much. It is very readable and well argued using real life cases and thought experiments as well The book provides the reader with a short history of and an overview of the most important issues in modern palliative care. Various theoretical discussions are clearly set out, such as: the relationship between the hospice movement and modern palliative care, between palliative care and health care in general, between palliative sedation and euthanasia, and the question whether euthanasia can be part of palliative care. The author starts with exploring the existing debates and then develops his own arguments in a balanced and well-structured way."
. Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy"

. . ""The text of this book is accessible, the philosophical and ethical arguments are clearly articulated, and relevant ethical principles are integrated into the critique of the issues, making this a very useful book for nurses working in palliative as well as in general care."
. Nursing Ethics"

. . ""It is crucially important for any student or researcher who is seriously considering. ethical and policy matters at the end of life to embrace and tackle intellectually the issues that Woods raises in this book. I would happily recommend it."
. Journal of Medical Ethics"

. . What constitutes a good death?. Is it possible to arrange a good death? . Is killing compatible with caring?. . This book looks at death and the issues and ethical dilemmas faced at the end of life. It addresses the central issues in the field such as: . . Withholding and withdrawing treatment. Euthanasia and assisted suicide. Terminal sedation. The role of autonomy. Palliative care. .Drawing on a philosophical framework, the author explores end-of-life issues in order to reflect on the nature of the good death and how this may be achieved. The book considers whether it is permissible or desirable to influence the quality of dying: offering palliative sedation as a possible alternative to terminal sedation, the argument is extended to examine why some forms of assisted dying can be shown to be compatible with the ideas of palliative care.

. . Consideration is also given to future developments such as life extension techniques and the ethical questions that that these techniques might raise. As such, the book follows in the ongoing philosophical tradition to critique and analyse current thought on the topic of death, encouraging self-reflection in the reader and offering suggestions for practice in end-of-life care.

. . "Deaths Dominion" is key reading for students and professionals involved in care of the dying, as well as those with an interest in the philosophical issues surrounding end-of-life care..

Hansard; noun
The official report of all parliamentary debates.

It's a summer's morning in 1988 and Tory politician Robin Hesketh has returned home to the idyllic Cotswold house he shares with his wife of 30 years, Diana. But all is not as blissful as it seems. Diana has a stinking hangover, a fox is destroying the garden, and secrets are being dug up all over the place. As the day draws on, what starts as gentle ribbing and the familiar rhythms of marital sparring quickly turns to blood-sport.

A witty and devastating new play.

Hansard premiered at the National Theatre, London, in August 2019.
