Diana

Her True Story - In Her Own Words

Andrew Morton

Published by Michael O'Mara Books in Hardback (£20.00) on 17-06-2017

Twenty-five years after its original publication, Michael O’Mara Books announce a fully updated edition of Diana: Her True Story – In Her Own Words. The original unedited transcripts of Diana’s interviews will be published for the first time as biographer Andrew Morton re-examines the recordings and reflects on the extraordinary circumstances surrounding the initial publication of Diana: Her True Story.  This revised edition also considers Diana’s long-term legacy and her relevance to the modern royal family.

Andrew Morton’s ground-breaking and controversial biography, Diana: Her True Story changed the public’s perception of the British monarchy and became an instant global bestseller.  When it was first published in 1992 the book was met with abuse and criticism from the disbelieving British Establishment and mass media.  At the time, Diana’s collaboration with Morton was a closely guarded secret.  It was only in 1997, after her tragic death, that Morton revealed how the princess was the hidden hand behind the most controversial royal book of all time.  In raw and revealing tape recordings, Diana exposed the sham of her marriage to Prince Charles, her eating disorders, her suicide attempts as well as her hope and faith in a happier future.  This was royalty unplugged and uncensored with the princess talking candidly about her whole life; from her unhappy childhood to her time inside the royal family.  Sadly her life was cut heartbreakingly short.  As a result Diana: Her True Story – In Her Own Words remains her one true testament.

Nine Nasty Words

Language evolves with time, and so does what we consider profane or unspeakable. Nine Nasty Words is a rollicking examination of profanity, explored from every angle: historical, sociological, political, linguistic. In a particularly coarse moment, when the public discourse is shaped in part by once-shocking words, nothing could be timelier.

I Can’t Believe It’s Baby Food!

My aim is to help parents make both cooking and mealtimes as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. It’s all about sharing food that the whole family will love, with your baby in a highchair pulled up to the table. Apart from the first few weeks of weaning, there really is no need to cook twice. In fact, it’s much better that you don’t! Your baby will benefit both nutritionally and developmentally from eating with you; and, if you are not stuck in the kitchen all day preparing endless different meals, you’ll be happier and less frazzled, too.

Your child’s development depends on three key areas of health that are intertwined and are interdependent – these are the Brain, the Immune system and the Gut (BIG). The first thousand days seems to be the critical window to get this essential BIG nutrition trio functioning well, as that is when your baby’s mind, immune-resilience and intestinal health are being primed for the future.

Extra Life

Steven Johnson will present a four-part television series with historian David Olusoga, also titled Extra Life: A Short History of Living Longer. As with the book, the series, set in the context of today’s COVID-19 crisis, explores the lessons learned from previous global pandemics—including smallpox, cholera, the Spanish flu, and others—and reveals how scientists, doctors, self-experimenters, and activists launched a public health revolution, saving millions of lives, fundamentally changing how we think about illness and ultimately paving the way for modern medicine.
