Marching Powder – A gripping, true-life account of surviving one of the world’s craziest and most dangerous prisons – only 99p 0 comments

Marching Powder is the story of Thomas MaFadden, a small-time English drug smuggler who was arrested in Bolivia and thrown inside the notorious San Pedro prison. He found himself in a bizarre world, with conditions reflecting all that is wrong with South American society. Inmates have to pay entrance fees and buy their own cells (the alternative is to sleep outside and die of exposure), prisoners’ wives and children often live inside, and high quality cocaine is manufactured and sold from the prison walls.
Thomas ended up making a living by giving backbackers tours of the prison and was even named in the Lonely Planet guide to Bolivia. When he was told that for a bribe of $5000 his sentence could be overturned, it was the many backbackers who’d passed through the jail who sent him the money.
Shocking, funny and sometimes surreal, Marching Powder is a riveting story of survival against the odds. Buy it today for only 99p.

The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide – £1.99 0 comments

For years, Elisabeth Hasselbeck couldn’t figure out what was making her sick. She asked doctors and consulted nutritionists, but no one seemed to have any answers. It wasn’t until spending time in the Australian Outback, living off the land on the grueling Survivor TV show, that, ironically, her symptoms vanished. Returning home, she pinpointed the food that made her sick — gluten, the binding element in wheat. By simply eliminating it from her diet, she was able to enjoy a completely normal, healthy life. But that wasn’t all. Hasselbeck discovered the myriad benefits that anyone can enjoy from a gluten-free diet: from weight loss and increased energy to even the alleviation of the conditions of autism.
In this all-inclusive book, Hasselbeck shares her hard-earned wisdom on living life without gluten and loving it. She gives you everything you need to know to start living a gluten-free life, from defining gluten – where to find it, how to read food labels – to targeting gluten-free products, creating G-Free shopping lists, sharing recipes, and managing G-Free living with family and friends. This book is selling for £1.99 today.

The Secret Life of Bletchley Park: The WWII Codebreaking Centre and the Men and Women Who Worked There – Only 99p 0 comments

Bletchley Park was where one of the war’s most famous – and crucial – achievements was made: the cracking of Germany’s “Enigma” code in which its most important military communications were couched. This country house in the Buckinghamshire countryside was home to Britain’s most brilliant mathematical brains, like Alan Turing, and the scene of immense advances in technology – indeed, the birth of modern computing. The military codes deciphered there were instrumental in turning both the Battle of the Atlantic and the war in North Africa.
But, though plenty has been written about the boffins, and the codebreaking, fictional and non-fiction – from Robert Harris and Ian McEwan to Andrew Hodges’ biography of Turing – what of the thousands of men and women who lived and worked there during the war? What was life like for them – an odd, secret territory between the civilian and the military?
