Winners : and how they succeed by Alastair Campbell( Book )

15 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do sports stars excel, entrepreneurs thrive, or individuals achieve their ambition? Is their ability to win innate? Or is the winning mindset something we can all develop? Drawing on the wisdom of an astonishing array of talented people - from elite athletes to top managers, from rulers of countries to rulers of global business empires - Alastair Campbell uses his forensic skills, as well as his own experience of politics and sport, to get to the heart of success. He examines how winners tick. He considers how they build great teams. He analyses how they deal with unexpected setbacks and new challenges. He judges what the very different worlds of politics, business and sport can learn from one another. And he sets out a blueprint for winning that we can all follow

A drink makes me feel better. For a bit. And then I feel worse, and the pain inside comes back. Worse than ever. My name is Hannah. This is their story ... My name is Kate. I am Hannah's mum. 'If nothing matters more to a parent than their children's health and happiness, how are you supposed to feel, and what are you supposed to do, when they're sick and unhappy?' My name is Vicki. I am Hannah's little sister. 'Why does she drink so much, when it is making her so ill, doing so much damage to her life? I don't get it.' My name is Sophie. I am Hannah's best friend. 'I loved her to bits those times when she was chatty and fun and making me laugh or think about the world differently.' My name is Dan. I was Hannah's mum's first boyfriend after her divorce. 'I tried, I really tried. But there's something wrong with that girl. If I'd have had any idea of what I was letting myself in for, I never would have asked Kate out.' My name is Amanda. I am Sophie's mother. 'She was like the outsider insider of Sophie's friendship group. I liked her though and being a parent, and a doctor, my instinct was to want to fix whatever it was that reduced her to this mess.' Powerful and passionate, My Name Is ... is the gripping story of a teenage girl's descent into alcoholism and the impact it has on those around her. Deft and direct, the voices of Hannah's family, friends and professionals, shed a sometimes shocking, sometimes tender light on a life veering terrifyingly off course

The Blair years : extracts from the Alastair Campbell diaries by Alastair Campbell( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Chinese and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "Blair Years" is the most compelling and revealing account of contemporary politics you will ever read. Taken from Alastair Campbell's daily diaries, it charts the rise of New Labour and the tumultuous years of Tony Blair's leadership, providing the first important record of a remarkable decade in our national life. Here are the defining events of our time, from Labour's new dawn to the war on terror, from the death of Diana to negotiations for peace in Northern Ireland, from Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq, through to the Hutton Inquiry of 2003, the year Campbell resigned his position at No 10. But above all here is Tony Blair up close and personal, taking the decisions that affected the lives of millions, under relentless and often hostile pressure. Often described as the second most powerful figure in Britain, Alastair Campbell is no stranger to controversy. Feared and admired in equal measure, hated by some, he was pivotal to the founding of New Labour and the sensational election victory of 1997. As Blair's press secretary, strategist and trusted confidant, Campbell spent more waking hours alongside the Prime Minister than anyone. His diaires - at times brutally frank, often funny, always compelling - take the reader right to the heart of government. "The Blair Years" is a story of politics in the raw, of progress and setback, of reputations made and destroyed, under the relentless scrutiny of a 24-hour media. Unflinchingly told, it covers the crises and scandals, the rows and resignations, the ups and downs of Britain's hothouse politics. But amid the big events are insights and observations that make this a remarkably human portrayal of some of the most powerful people in the world. There has never been so riveting a book about life at the very top, nor a more human book about politics, told by a man who saw it all

Who says football doesn't do fairy tales? : how Burnley defied the odds to join the elite by Dave Thomas( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once upon a time, on 21 April 2014, something extraordinary happened, as unfashionable Burnley sealed their promotion to the Premier League. It was the improbable culmination to one of the most magical, inspirational and unpredictable stories in the modern game. This is English football's Moneyball. At the start of the season, the Lancashire club were among the favourites for relegation from the Championship, with a tiny budget, threadbare squad and a manager plucked from the supposed scrapheap. Few outside of Turf Moor gave them a hope: Burnley were there to make up the numbers alongside big-budget, high-spending rivals. Even before they sold their star striker in the opening month of the campaign... Who Says Football Doesn't Do Fairytales? tells the story of a season which Dyche called a 'marker for history' and gives an insight into how a sporting David can still overcome economic strictures to beat the Goliaths

The Irish diaries (1994-2003) by Alastair Campbell( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The four volumes of spin-doctor and strategist Alastair Campbell's Diaries were a publishing sensation. As British Prime Minister Tony Blair's right-hand man, former journalist and political analyst Campbell played a critical role in every aspect of 'New' Labour strategy. Charting the course of British government from May 1994 to September 2001, Campbell's relentlessly honest, often controversial, occasionally brutal and always razor-sharp commentary has drawn critical acclaim around the world. This newly edited one-volume edition focuses on Ireland, and one of the Blair government's biggest successes, the Northern Ireland peace process. From the high of the Good Friday Agreement and devolution in Northern Ireland to the deadly lows of the Manchester and Omagh bombings, The Irish Diaries explodes the tensions, all-night talks, adrenalin-fuelled negotiations and heady personality clashes that are such an intrinsic part of twenty-first-century politics. Annotated and fully revised by Alastair Campbell with new linking commentary, and featuring especially commissioned material by key figures in the Irish peace process, former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, US President Bill Clinton, Tony Blair and Alastair Campbell himself, The Irish Diaries will be of huge interest for readers with an interest in Irish history and provide an important historical record for generations, in both Ireland and beyond."--Publisher description

The Alastair Campbell diaries. countdown to Iraq by Alastair Campbell( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The burden of power is the fourth volume of Alastair Campbell's diaries, and perhaps the most eagerly awaited given the ground it covers. It begins on September 12, 2001 as world leaders assess their response to Al Qaida terrorist attacks in New York and Washington the day before, a day which wrote itself immediately into the history books: 9/11, and it ends on the day Campbell leaves Downing Street. In between there are two wars, first Afghanistan, still going on today, and then, even more controversially, Iraq. It was the most difficult decision of Blair's premiership, and perhaps the most unpopular. Campbell describes in detail the discussions with President Bush and other world leaders as the steps to war are taken, and delivers an intimate account of Blair as war leader. He records the enormous political difficulties at home, and the sense of crisis that engulfed the government over the suicide of weapons inspector David Kelly. And in the meantime Blair continues to struggle with two issues that have run through all of the Campbell diaries in government - fighting for peace in Northern Ireland, and trying to make peace with Gordon Brown. And Campbell continues to struggle with trying to balance one of the most pressurised posts in politics with the needs of a family and a partner who wants him to leave it. The burden of power is as raw and intimate a portrayal of the pressures and responsibilities of political life as you are ever likely to read." --Publisher description
