All the Days of My Life is a detailed autobiographical account of the life of evangelical pioneer missionary Sam Faircloth. Sam records how he arrived in Portugal as a young man of 28, with his wife Arlie and little daughter Becky, to learn a new language and found a new seminary in Leiria north of Lisbon, where some students lacked even the basic necessities of life. His chronological account narrates both the joys and struggles of further work later in evangelism and church planting in the Lisbon area. Sams family of eventually seven daughters were all actively involved at some point in the Faircloths ministry. They felt blessed to witness Gods clear hand at work in the birth and growth of the Parede Baptist Church, which then went on to plant other churches in the Lisbon area. Another great privilege was co-founding the Portuguese Bible Institute and watching again as graduates from the Bible institute took greatly needed leadership of churches around Portugal, as they had from the Baptist Theological Seminary of Leiria years before. Spending his last six years of overseas ministry in the Netherlands, Sam was again thrilled to be involved with the founding of a seminary, Tyndale Theological Seminary. Sam writes candidly of the heartbreak of losing both Arlie and his second wife Ruth but rejoices in Gods goodness and mercy as he continues to serve the Lord with his wife Betty in retirement.

As one of Britain's best known TV and radio personalities, Gloria Hunniford requires little introduction. From chat show and current affairs host to presenter of consumer and lifestyle programmes, Gloria is one of the few broadcasters who can genuinely claim to embrace the spectrum of popular culture. Her elusive ability to communicate with people from all walks and backgrounds has earned her a rare iconic status in the hearts and minds of the British public. Now, having just been made an OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours and celebrating 70 years in show-business, Gloria is ready to tell her story. With an illustrious career spanning seven decades, as Gloria says herself, 'Even that wide-eyed, ambitious ten-year-old girl from Portadown, County Armagh would never have believed that sixty-seven years later she'd still be in show business'. Gloria has had many lives - starting out as a singer aged seven alongside her father in a troupe of entertainers, before taking the brave step to travel and live in Canada as a teenager, which broadened her horizons in a way she never could have imagined, coming from a religiously divided Northern Ireland. Back home at the age of twenty, following the release of her first record that went into the Ulster charts, she was offered a job at BBC Belfast, which started her on a career trajectory she could only have dreamed about in those early years singing in front of her Bakelite radio, hoping someone would hear her. Working through bombs, bullets and barricades, and the turmoil of the Troubles in the seventies, Gloria soon became a firm fixture on both radio and TV, especially with her nightly show, Good Evening Ulster. It wasn't long before Gloria's charm, wit and tenacity were spotted over the Irish sea, becoming the first ever woman to have a daily radio programme in 1982, presenting on BBC Radio 2 continuously for the next 13 years. She was then offered her first chat show and Sunday, Sunday launched her into the homes of millions of people, as she interviewed some of the greatest stars of our time, including Bette Davis, Charlton Heston, Doris Day, Audrey Hepburn and Sean Connery. Since then, Gloria's career has blossomed, and she has become widely regarded as one of the most respected names in the industry. And with her extremely moving and sentimental account of her daughter's battle with cancer - in the best-selling books Next To You and Always With You - Gloria has sealed her reputation as one of the nation's most respected writers and commentators. More recently known for being a panellist on Loose Women and presenting the daily consumer programme Rip-Off Britain, she has entered the hearts of the nations and will continue to do so for years to come. In My Life Gloria will, for the first time, explore her life from her humble beginnings to the much-loved national treasure she is today.

One second in time may separate the great athlete from the merely good. Seb Coe has made every second count. From an early age he has been driven to be the best at everything he does. Since the moment Coe stood alongside a 'scrubby' municipal running track in Sheffield, he knew that sport could change his life. It did. Breaking an incredible twelve world records and three of them in just forty-one days, Seb became the only athlete to take gold at 1500 metres in two successive Olympic Games (Moscow 1980 and Los Angeles 1984). The same passion galvanised Coe in 2005, when he led Britain's bid to bring the Olympic and Paralympic Games to London. He knew that if we won it would regenerate an East London landscape and change the lives of thousands of young people. It has. Born in Hammersmith and coached by his engineer father, Coe went from a secondary modern school and Loughborough University to become the fastest middle-distance runner of his generation. His rivalry with Steve Ovett gripped a nation and made Britain feel successful at a time of widespread social discontent. From sport Coe transferred his ideals to politics, serving in John Major's Conservative government from 1992 to 1997 and developing 'sharp elbows' to become chief of staff to William Hague, leader of the Party from 1997 to 2001 and finally a member of the House of Lords. Running My Life is in turns exhilarating, inspiring, amusing, and extremely moving. Everyone knows where Sebastian Coe ended up. Few people realise how he got there. This is his personal journey.

“It’s an autobiography! If I tell you what’s in it you won’t read the book.” — Claire Drainie Taylor Or would you? Maybe you’d be intrigued by the progression of a life begun as an unexceptional little girl born to a middle-class Jewish Canadian couple in a small prairie town who, at age sixteen, married a refined Englishman, and survived the Great Depression, partly alone in a shack in the woods of Vancouver Island. Or how, only a few months after returning to Vancouver, with no training and minimal education, this same young woman walked on stage at one of Canada’s finest old theatres, and went on to a successful thirty-year career as an actress and radio dialogue writer. Having been compelled by her family to write her memoir, it wasn’t until she’d finished and reread her manuscript that Claire Drainie Taylor realized what an extraordinary life she’d led. Her descriptions of the many fascinating incidents that make up her story, and how she dealt with them, revealed herself to herself in a way that illuminates what she calls “The Surprise of My Life.”

No one knows more about corporate boards and effective governance than Bill Haeberle! This autobiography combines Bill’s wry sense of humor with sage advice garnered from fifty-seven years of experience as an entrepreneur, sixty years on the Indiana University business faculty and forty years in a multitude of board rooms. It’s must reading for every executive or anyone who serves or hopes to serve on a board of directors. John Mutz, former Lt. Governor, State of Indiana President, Lilly Endowment , Inc President, Public Service Indiana Currently Chairman, Lumina Foundation for Education, Inc "Bill raises questions about Indiana University, that are not often asked. His combined experience as an academic, entrepreneur, and corporate director, provide the platform for his thoughtful inquiry and commentary. He argues that cheerleading brings no value to our IU degrees. Get and keep the goals right...then-perform, perform, perform-will bring sustained IU brand equity value.
