In her early thirties Petrea was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia and given little chance of surviving. She defied her dire prognosis, and believes meditation and coming to terms with past traumas, including the suicide of her brother Brenden, were key to her recovery.

Kennedy, Malcolm X, Mahatma Gandhi and Richard Nixon.

  4. John Ibrahim’s incredible life story told in his own words. Last King of the Cross lays bare Australia’s most notorious underworld figure. In the mongrel tongue of the streets, John writes of fleeing war-torn Tripoli with his family and growing up in Sydney’s rough and tumble west – before establishing himself as a tough guy and teen delinquent, then a bouncer, enforcer and nightclub king on the Golden Mile. Bullets fly, blades flash and bodies fall. In a city of shadows, John builds his army and empire – partying like a playboy prince of darkness while staying one step ahead of the cops, the outlaw gangs and hungry triggermen, plotting to take him and his family down. Crazier than Goodfellas, more compelling than The Godfather, Last King of the Cross is a colourful crime saga like no other and powerful proof that truth is always stranger than fiction.

  14. This unforgettable account of Muhammad Ali’s rise and self-creation, told by a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, places Ali in a heritage of great American originals. “An amazing story” New York Times David Remnick concentrates on Ali’s early career, when he was still fighting as Cassius Clay. The book begins in September 1962 with the fight between Floyd Patteson and Sonny Liston, providing a remarkable sociological backdrop to Ali’s entrance on the boxing scene. Remnick then describes Clay’s 1964 fight with Liston, which even his own people thought Clay couldn’t win, and takes us through to 1967 when Ali refused the military draft to Vietnam. This is much more than a sports book. It is a study of the rise of the black voice in the American consciousness and a look at how the media creates its heroes – Cassius Clay began as a ‘light-hitting loudmouth’ before becoming gradually canonized by the American press and public as Muhammad Ali. King of the World takes us back to the days when his life was a series of battles, inside the ring and out. A master storyteller at the height of his powers, David Remnick has written a book worthy of America’s most dynamic moden hero. PRAISE FOR KING OF THE WORLD “Succeeds more than any previous book in bringing Ali into focus . . . as a starburst of energy, ego and ability whose like will never be seen again” Wall Street Journal “Nearly pulse-pounding narrative power . . . an important account of a period in American social history” Chicago Tribune “A pleasure . . . haunting . . . so vivid that one can imagine Ali saying, ‘How’d you get inside my head, boy?’” Time “By now we all have our notions about what Ali meant – to his time and to the history of his sport. Of course David Remnick sheds light on these subjects, but where King of the World really shines is in the ring itself. With telling detail, Remnick captures the drama, danger, beauty, and ugliness of a generation’s worth of big heavyweight fights” Bob Costa

  15. ‘It was the genius of the system . . . From day to day you didn’t know who was on the take or not. You didn’t know who you could trust.’ Three Crooked Kings is the shocking true story of Queensland and how a society was shaped by almost half a century of corruption. At its core is Terence Murray Lewis, deposed and jailed former police commissioner. From his entry into the force in 1949, Lewis rose through the ranks, becoming part of the so-called Rat Pack with detectives Glendon Patrick Hallahan and Tony Murphy under the guiding influence of Commissioner Frank Bischof. The next four decades make for a searing tale of cops and killings, bagmen and blackmail, and sin and sleaze that exposes a police underworld which operated from Queensland and into New South Wales. This gripping book exposes the final pieces of the puzzle, unearths new evidence on cold cases, and explores the pivotal role that whistleblower Shirley Brifman, prostitute and brothel owner, played until her sudden death. Based on extensive and unprecedented access to Terry Lewis and his personal papers, as well as hundreds of interviews with key players and conspirators, Three Crooked Kings is the first of two explosive books. Awarded journalist and novelist Matthew Condon has crafted the definitive account of an era that changed a state and is still reverberating to this day.

  16. Henry VIII changed the course of English life more completely than any monarch since the Conquest. In the portraits of Holbein, Henry Tudor stands proud as one of the most powerful figures in renaissance Europe. But is the portrait just a bluff?In his new book Derek Wilson explores the myths behind the image of the Tudor Lion. He was the monarch that delivered the Reformation to England yet Luther called him ‘A fool, a liar and a damnable rotten worm’. As a young man he gained a reputation as an intellectual and fair prince yet he ruled the nation like a tyrant. He treated his subjects as cruelly as he treated his wives. Based on a wealth of new material and a life time’s knowledge of the subject Derek Wilson exposes a new portrait of a much misunderstood King.PRAISE FOR DEREK WILSON’S PREVIOUS WORKS:The Uncrowned Kings of England: ‘Stimulating and authorative.’ John Guy’Masterly. [Wilson] has a deep understanding of…characters, reaching out accross the centuries.’ Sunday TimesHans Holbein: Portrait of an Unknown Man:‘Fascinating.’ Sarah Bradford, Daily Telegraph’Highly readable…The most accurate and vivid portrayal to date.’ Alison Weir
