Art Pepper (1925 - 1982) was described as the greatest alto-sexophonist of the post-Charlie Parker generation. But Straight Life is much more than a jazz book ? it is oneof the most explosive, yet one of the most lyrical, of all autobiographies, narrated on tape to his wife Laurie. Pepper refuses to tiptoe round many of the unpalatable episodes of a life that involved alcoholism, heroin addiction,armed robberies and five of what should have been his most productive years imprisoned in San Quentin. The result is an autobiography like no other, a masterpiece of the spoken word, shaped into a genuine work of literature.

Howard Marks was released from Terre Haute Penitentiary, Indiana in April 1995 after serving seven years of a twenty-five year sentence for marijuana smuggling. It was time for a change of career. So he wrote two best-selling books, became a sports writer and travel writer, stood as a parliamentary candidate in Norwich North, Norwich South, Southampton Test and Neath, applied to become the country's Drug Czar, and embarked on a long-running sell-out series of one man shows. While performing in his home town of Kenfig Hill, he fell among old friends who made extraordinary claims for Welsh culture (Was Elvis really Welsh? Was there really a tribe of Welsh-speaking Native Americans?) At the same time his elderly aunt told him of his outlaw ancestry: William Owen, the legendary Welsh smuggler (who had operated for some time in South America) and his great-great-grandfather Patrick McCarty, the half brother of Billy the Kid, who had joined Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in Patagonia. He decided to explore South America. His travels took him to Jamaica and Panama in the footsteps of the Welsh buccaneer Henry Morgan; he went to Brazil looking for groups of Welsh settlers so obscure he never found them (although he did succeed in finding his musical idol Jimmy Page); and he searched among the thriving Welsh community in Patagonia for signs of Billy the Kid's half brother. Richly comic and charged with the sense of adventure that would induce an Oxford graduate to become the world's most notorious marijuana smuggler, SeƱor Nice is the hugely entertaining sequel to Mr Nice.

Have you been wondering how to turn your experience and expertise into a lucrative and rewarding second career? This book is for everyone seeking The Straight Truth about the highly rewarding, high-stakes world of the expert witness. In these pages, the author shares valuable information about launching, marketing, building, and conducting an expert witness practice-but he does not stop there. Gulya discusses actual cases on which he served as an expert witness, revealing lessons learned, and alerting the reader to potential opportunities and pitfalls. With humanity, candor, and humor, he takes the reader right into deposition and trial, and lets them experience all the drama, heartbreak, and triumph of the expert witness life. William "Bill" Gulya has forty years of experience in the sitework construction business. He is a highly respected and sought after expert witness in his field. For many of those years, he has been the principal of Middlesex Trenching, a company founded by his late and beloved father. Over the years, Gulya grew the business from a tiny company using the local deli as an office, into a highly successful enterprise. The author and his wife Kathy have two children- Stacy and William, III-and four grandchildren, whom they adore. Gulya derives great satisfaction from using his extensive experience and knowledge to make a difference in people's lives. When he is not busy guiding justice toward the truth, he can often be found on the golf course, ruminating on the evidence in his latest case, and perfecting his golf swing.

People approaching retirement or already retired can significantly improve their financial situation by making smart decisions and avoiding financial mistakes. This comprehensive guide tells how, and shows what to expect, what to select, and what to reject. Written in jargon-free language by well known personal finance expert Jonathan Pond, it clearly explains how to determine how much money one will need to live comfortably in retirement . . . and accumulate that sum or more from personal savings, Social Security and an IRA, Keogh, 401(k), or pension plan. It's an indispensable "road map" to financial independence and peace of mind, and how to avoid the numerous potholes along the way.
