Having lived many lives when most of us only live one, the stories of Joan Collins' adventures on film sets around the world, the friendships she made, the triumphs and the near disasters could fill many books. Encounters with Princess Diana, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the romantic story of her courtship and marriage to Percy Gibson are among the new stories Joan shares, in this latest instalment of her witty, wise and revelatory memoirs. Following on from where Second Act left off, the screen icon reveals details of her life with her fifth (and final) husband Percy, her travels around the world, fun with family and friends, and shares more revealing anecdotes about the fascinating people she has met during her life. A Passion for Life is - quite literally - an expression of the joie de vivre which Joan exudes. Filled with fabulous never-before-seen images of her life, from childhood to recent holiday snaps with Percy and her children, this is the ultimate illustrated guide to the life of a British icon.

I can no longer walk, play the piano, cuddle my wife, hug my kids, drink without a straw, or piddle without someone else opening my fly and holding a bottle over what can no longer be accurately described as my private parts.

And for telling stories...'Paul Brock was a happily married man with three children and at the peak of an illustrious career when he was diagnosed with that most terrible of conditions, Motor Neurone Disease.In this well written, moving book, Paul Brock tells of his struggle to cope with the shocking hammer blow that the diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease brought to his life.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Cliff Potts was raised near the small town of Custer, Montana. At fifteen he contracted polio and nearly died. He lost the use of his arms and legs and spent many months in an Iron Lung. Because of this ordeal Cliff developed a profound spirituality, beginning with the realization that every breath he took was a gift from God. Using a tongue controlled electric "Golden Arm", to manipulate his own left arm, Cliff produces original artwork in pen & inks, watercolors and oils, as well as limited edition prints and cards. Many of Cliff's drawings and paintings reflect his rural Montana heritage and his spiritual reverence. Hope is a predominate thread in his life and in his art he frequently expresses it through the use of vibrant color. No matter what the medium or subject his artistic vision brings him back time and again. to the lessons he learned as a boy, awe for the majesty of creation, a belief in the power of God, and the knowledge that survival takes teamwork. Indeed, not only his artwork, but his entire life has been shaped around these lessons. He considers every day a blessing and strives to make it count!

BOOK EXCERPT:

This is a biography of Dr Felicia Wu. Felicia was a scientist with a successful career in cancer research, but what marked the most extraordinary aspect about her life was her journey as a truly brave cancer patient and an incredibly determined cancer fighter. Originally, this book was intended to be an autobiography written and narrated by Felicia herself. She wanted to share with other cancer sufferers her 13 long years of experience fighting cancer to prepare them for the side effects and uncertainties of the treatment, and also to encourage them to brace and face their own treatment without fear. What she did not realize then was that her time was ticking away, and her life trickling off quickly. Writing her own autobiography proved to be an impossible task. Felicia succumbed to the prolonged battle and departed from this world. Her husband, Dr Cheng-Wen Wu, finished the uncompleted task of writing the book in loving memory of her. The biography of Felicia, originally published in Chinese edition, has been recommended as a reading model for students in schools and was nominated for an award in Taiwan. Felicia''s story had also inspired the production of a documentary film entitled, OC A Passion for Life, OCO funded and sponsored by The American Cancer Society. This biography of Felicia in English edition, painstakingly translated by Dr Cheng-Wen Wu and his collaborating translator, Ms Annie Chen, will certainly live up to its original premise as an inspiration to touch more lives and as a source of strength to all who encounter difficulty, disappointment and hurt at any point of their lives.
