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

17 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 638 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 analyzes 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. Includes a special introduction for the American edition

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
Saturday bloody Saturday by Alastair Campbell( Book )

February 1974. Football manager Charlie Gordon is struggling, and with each defeat the sack gets closer. His greatness as a player counts for nothing with directors or fans, or the Number 2 who is after his job. Things are no better off the field, and after a failed marriage and the loss of a child, he is taking more and more consolation in alcohol. Only a decent Cup run is keeping him in work. But how to turn things around with the same players who got him here in the first place? Can he trust this remarkable but often unreliable mix of characters to save him? Footballers fall into two categories - artists or assassins. With the next round of the Cup at Chelsea away he will soon find out which of his players, from homesick teenage starlet Willie Buchanan, to playboy record signing DD Marland, can deliver for him. Meanwhile, as the country prepares for a general election, one of the most audacious and high-profile political assassinations in the IRA's history is being planned in London. An active service unit of two men and a woman await the critical signal to proceed. Now both teams - the IRA's and Charlie's - converge on the capital for a result that will alter everyone's lives irrevocably, with consequences far beyond football

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

17 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and Chinese and held by 41 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

Alastair Campbell diaries by Alastair Campbell( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Caught in the no man's land between being a key figure in Downing Street and the relative anonymity of the world outside politics, Alastair Campbell finds himself being torn in several directions. Having succeeded Tony Blair as Prime Minister, Gordon Brown wants Campbell at his side. Campbell resists, flooding his reservoir of guilt as a general election looms and Brown's indecision and fluctuating moods suggest the Labour administration is seriously threatened by the Tory 'posh boy', David Cameron. Soon Campbell is earning not only praise but big money from motivational speaking and writing novels which darkly reflect the personal mood swings that continue to concern to both him and his family. Serious journalism across platforms old and new puts him back in the public eye and together with live appearances and a love of sport - his enduring love affair with Burnley Football Club still smoulders - sees him board a celebrity merry-go-round that often leaves him far from his comfort zone. With politics constantly tugging his sleeve, he eventually returns to the front line to marshal a party in disarray. The intensity of the months leading up to 6 May 2010 is as dramatic as any screenplay, with Campbell chronicling Brown's struggle to win over a disillusioned nation and then his dignified departure from the main stage. For Campbell, another chapter closes. So what next?“--Provided by publisher

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 14 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
