Jason Fox served with the SBS for over a decade, thriving on the close bonds of the Special Forces brotherhood and the ‘death or glory’ nature of their missions. Battle Scars tells the story of his career as an elite operator, from the gunfights, hostage rescues, daring escapes and heroic endeavours that defined his service to a battle of a very different kind: the psychological devastation of combat that ultimately forced him to leave the military and the hard reality of what takes place in the mind of a man once a career of imagined invincibility has come to an end.

A jaw-dropping account of life as a prison officer in one of the country's most notorious jails. Neil ‘Sam’ Samworth spent 11 years working as a prison officer in HMP Manchester, aka Strangeways. A tough Yorkshireman with a soft heart, Sam had to deal with it all - gangsters and gangbangers, terrorists and psychopaths, addicts and the mentally ill. Men who should not be locked up and men who should never be let out. Strangeways is a shocking and at times darkly funny account of life in a high-security prison.

At last the CD audio programme is now available as a download. Do you want to lose weight? Have you tried diets and failed? Do you want a completely new approach? A gastric band is a radical, surgical operation that reduces the available space in the stomach.

No one is born a leader. But through sheer determination and by confronting life’s challenges, Ant Middleton has come to know the meaning of true leadership.

Even when you are bleeding and broken, to admit defeat is failure.

Are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? Alcohol is a powerfully addictive drug, and not the harmless social pleasantry that the marketing would have you believe. Willpower on its own has a 95% chance of failure. Quitting alcohol can be difficult unless you get the tools to help you reprogram your subconscious mind. This is the most forceful version of my stop drinking hypnosis range. Designed for people who are adamant that they want alcohol out of their life forever.

Intelligent, calm and thoughtful, he is the opposite of the archetypal English midfielder. He has won every honour in club football, including five Premier League titles, the Champions League, the Europa League, the Club World Cup, the FA Cup and multiple League Cups. In his first audiobook, Carrick invites us to experience the camaraderie and desire to succeed inside the United dressing room and lets us feel what it's like to walk out on the Old Trafford pitch alongside some of the biggest names in the game - from Ronaldo to Scholes to Pogba and the rest.

As a 17-year-old virgin working...for Virgin, Joel Dommett has grand ambitions. Firstly, he is going to swap suburbia for the bright lights of showbiz. Secondly, he is going to find 'the one' - and sets himself the very achievable target of finding her in the first 50 people he's definitely going to sleep with. What follows is a series of disastrous romantic encounters, including carpets mistaken for toilets, futile grand gestures and the catfishing to end all catfishing.
