This extraordinary work of investigative journalism takes readers inside America’s isolated Mormon Fundamentalist communities, where some 40,000 people still practice polygamy. Defying both civil authorities and the Mormon establishment in Salt Lake City, the renegade leaders of these Taliban-like theocracies are zealots who answer only to God. At the core of Krakauer’s book are brothers Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a commandment from God to kill a blameless woman and her baby girl. Beginning with a meticulously researched account of this appalling double murder, Krakauer constructs a multi-layered, bone-chilling narrative of messianic delusion, polygamy, savage violence, and unyielding faith. Along the way he uncovers a shadowy offshoot of America’s fastest growing religion, and raises provocative questions about the nature of religious belief.

From the bestselling author of "Into the Wild" and "Into Thin Air", a riveting account of Taliban-like theocracies in the American heartland controlled by renegade Mormon prophets. Brothers Ron and Dan Lafferty insist they were commanded to kill by God. Krakauer's investigation is a meticulously researched, bone-chilling narrative of polygamy, savage violence and unyielding faith: an incisive, gripping work of non-fiction that illuminates an otherwise confounding realm of human behaviour. 'Excellent... A lucid, judicious, even sympathetic account not just of Mormon Fundamentalism but of the seductive power of fanaticism in general' - DAILY TELEGRAPH

Greg Mortenson, the bestselling author of Three Cups of Tea, is a man who has built a global reputation as a selfless humanitarian and children’s crusader, and he’s been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. But, as Jon Krakauer demonstrates in this extensively researched and penetrating book, he is not all that he appears to be. Based on wide-ranging interviews with former employees, board members, and others who have intimate knowledge of Mortenson and his charity, the Central Asia Institute, Three Cups of Deceit uncovers multiple layers of deception behind Mortenson’s public image. Was his crusade really inspired by a desire to repay the kindness of villagers who nursed him back to health when he became lost on his descent down K2? Was he abducted and held for eight days by the Taliban? Has his charity built all of the schools that he has claimed? This book is a passionately argued plea for the truth, and a tragic tale of good intentions gone very wrong. 100% of Jon Krakauer’s proceeds from the sale of Three Cups of Deceit will be donated to the “Stop Girl Trafficking” project at the American Himalayan Foundation (www.himalayan-foundation.org/live/project/stopgirltrafficking).

The day of my daughters funeral, the most horrible day of my life, I began a 65 day, daily visit to the cemetery. It was during these long, sad visits I found myself putting poetry down on paper. I dont remember writing most of the poems proving God had opened my mind and allowed my child to be my guardian angel, my muse. I believe my daughters spirit lead my heart to write what I felt and leading me to accept Gods blessings and the ability to transform my depression into understandable words. Though not Poe, they are heart felt. Again, here are two books in one.

This book was previously published under the title 'Alithiea' A fast paced, UK based, Political Thriller that pits the residents of a rundown, British housing estate 'Riverside' against the full might of the British Government and its security forces. The Chinese Government, the CIA, and the secret world of Freemasonry, all conspire against what the British Prime Minister sees as the undeserving poor; the lazy workshy underclass, or simply as subversive terrorists. The story is set in the near future, a time when the United Kingdom has left the European Union and war has devastated the Middle East. Poverty has led to anarchy and an increasingly divided society. Since the secession from the EU, successive governments have wrestled with the UK's isolated and crumbling economy leading them to introduce increasingly draconian policies, and to make economic and political alliances with unlikely bedfellows. The people of Riverside have experienced firsthand the effects of austerity, and have watched as the worldwide movements for progressive change, from the Anonymous face mask wearers to the Occupy movements in Wall St and London, have been crushed with the free internet being shut down under the heel of the globalised 'Free Market' elites all under the banner of the so called, 'war against terror'. Now, it comes time for the Residents of the estate themselves to directly face the forces of oppression, and, as they do so, come face to face with the ultimate choice.

In any case, this book is written for you and it comes from my heart, and from my many trial and errors over the last two years and still am doing today. I hope I will not let you down with the content of this book and that you will find it useful.

Garry starting collecting TV bloopers more than 20 years ago, when his Bushell on the Box column was first published in The Sun. "To err is human", writes Garry, "but to really cock things up, you need a TV presenter!" Garry's Goofs are rooted in the traditional English love of the innuendo, in particular the unintentional double meaning. Whether it's the host of Antiques Roadshow telling the busty owner of two glass decanters "that's the nicest pair I've seen in ages!" or whether it's the witless presenter of Who Do You Think You Are asking a guest "did your great-grandfather have any children?"... you'll love 'em all! INNUENDO BONANZA contains more than 1,000 classic goofs, guaranteed to have you in stitches. Childish, maybe. Puerile, certainly. But very funny!

This book was written to help a person find their internal quarrels in written words. Written words bring about a different perspective. To overcome something, you must be able to see it from a different viewpoint, you must be able to analyze and understand it in order to accept it or move past it. The most important step in the healing process is acknowledgement that what you are feeling is okay to feel, and that you are not alone in those feelings. Get lost in this book and find yourself in it, all at the same time. Emotional clarity.
