Diana Cover

Diana’s private tape recordings published for the first time in a fully revised biography

In his 25th anniversary edition of Diana:Her Story – In Her Own Words, first published to huge public controversy and accusations of fabrication, Andrew Morton is able to shed light on Diana’s personal, private experiences as a troubled member of the Royal family. The books includes transcripts of detailed tape interviews in which she describes all aspects of her life, including her ten-year struggle with bulimia and her husband Charles’ affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles.

Morton describes the interviews, conducted secretly and through a proxy, as Diana’s way of getting her voice – and her side of the story of their failing marriage – heard, at once searingly sad and monumentally brave. “It is a chance for my own self to surface a little rather than be lost in the system,” she wrote to her father during the interview process. “I rather see it as a lifebelt against being drowned and it is terribly important to me.”

Pre-Suasion jacket (1)

The science of persuasion explained

In his ground-breaking new book Professor Robert Cialdini offers revelatory new insights into the art of winning people over. It isn’t just what we say or how we say it that counts, he argues, but also what goes on in the moments before we speak. Effective persuasion requires effective pre-suasion.

 

Frequently regarded as the ‘Godfather of influence’, Cialdini’s New York Times bestselling book Influence swiftly established him as the world’s foremost authority on the science of persuasion.  It has sold over 3 million copies and has been translated into 30 languages.  Warren Buffett declared Influence to be among his favourite business books, and it has also won plaudits from such major thinkers and writers as Daniel Kahneman, Daniel Pink, Tom Peters and Chip Heath.

 

His forthcoming book Pre-Suasion draws on a series of compelling case studies and a profound understanding of human psychology to explore those key seconds that determine the success of an attempt to influence, persuade or win over. As such it will be of invaluable practical help to people such as advertisers, publicists, fund-raisers, recruiters – even parents negotiating with recalcitrant children. At the same time it will reveal to the general reader the pre-suasive ploys used by successful influencers – from marketers to politicians – to ensure that their message gets across.  For full details visit the Pre-Suasion campaign page.

 

 

 

Mara Wilson Where I Am Now cover

Mara Wilson to publish searingly honest collection of personal essays

Introducing a witty, perceptive and refreshingly candid new literary voice – Mara Wilson, the beloved child star of Matilda and Mrs Doubtfire, writes openly about her experiences growing up on film sets and finding her place in the world in her forthcoming book Where Am I Now?  For details visit the campaign page.

 

“Every time Mara Wilson opens her mouth, we like her even more.” The Huffington Post

 

“Wilson is more compelling as an adult than she was a child. Her writing is sharp, funny, and critical of the film industry and expectations placed on women who live their lives in public.” - Longreads.com

“The coolest girl to ever dump Hollywood.” -Refinery 29

“Growing up, I wanted to BE Mara Wilson. I always loved that she portrayed strong characters, especially as a female, even as a young child. Where Am I Now? is a delight.” - Ilana Glazer, co-creator and star of Broad City

“Former child star Mara Wilson has grown up to be a moving, funny, and thoughtful storyteller. Well, not up. As I understand it, she’s still approximately the same height.” -Megan Amram, comedian and author of Science . . . For Her!

“You don’t have to be a fellow neurotic Jew who grew up in Southern California to adore this book. Though Mara Wilson’s childhood was unique, the themes of Where Am I Now? are universal.” -Rachel Bloom, creator and star of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
