Description :  For fans of the Netflix series The Crown and from the author of the New York Times bestseller 17 Carnations comes a captivating biography of Wallis Simpson, the notorious woman for whom Edward VIII gave up the throne. <br /><br />"You have no idea how hard it is to live out a great romance." -Wallis Simpson<br /><br />Before she became known as the woman who enticed a king from his throne and birthright, Bessie Wallis Warfield was a prudish and particular girl from Baltimore. At turns imaginative, ambitious, and spoiled, Wallis's first words as recalled by her family were "me, me." From that young age, she was in want of nothing but stability, status, and social acceptance as she fought to climb the social ladder and take her place in London society. As irony would have it, she would gain the love and devotion of a king, but only at the cost of his throne and her reputation.<br />In WALLIS IN LOVE, acclaimed biographer Andrew Morton offers a fresh portrait of Wallis Simpson in all her vibrancy and brazenness as she transformed from a hard-nosed gold-digger to charming chatelaine. Using diary entries, letters, and other never-before-seen records, Morton takes us through Wallis's romantic adventures in Washington, China, and her entrance into the strange wonderland that is London society. During her journey, we meet an extraordinary array of characters, many of whom smoothed the way for her dalliance with the king of England, Edward VIII.<br />WALLIS IN LOVE goes beyond Wallis's infamous persona and reveals a complex, domineering woman striving to determine her own fate and grapple with matters of the heart.

Description :  The sensational biography of Princess Diana, written with her cooperation and now featuring exclusive new material to commemorate the 20th anniversary of her death.<br /><br />When <i>Diana: Her True Story</i> was first published in 1992, it forever changed the way the public viewed the British monarchy. Greeted initially with disbelief and ridicule, the #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling biography has become a unique literary classic, not just because of its explosive contents but also because of Diana’s intimate involvement in the publication. Never before had a senior royal spoken in such a raw, unfiltered way about her unhappy marriage, her relationship with the Queen, her extraordinary life inside the House of Windsor, her hopes, her fears, and her dreams. Now, twenty-five years on, biographer Andrew Morton has revisited the secret tapes he and the late princess made to reveal startling new insights into her life and mind. In this fully revised edition of his groundbreaking biography, Morton considers Diana’s legacy and her relevance to the modern royal family.<br /><br />An icon in life and a legend in death, Diana continues to fascinate. <i>Diana: Her True Story in Her Own Words </i>is the closest we will ever come to her autobiography.

Release Date :  2010-07-31
Description :  The gripping true story of Angelina Jolie, from #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling biographer Andrew Morton.<br /><br />"I like to collect knives," says Angelina Jolie, "but I also collect first edition books." At first glance, she might seem to be someone without any secrets, talking openly about her love life, sexual preferences, drug use, cutting, and tattoos--and why she kissed her brother on the lips in public. And yet mysteries remain: What was really going on in her brief, impulsive marriages to Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton, and what was going on in her partnership with Brad Pitt? What's behind the oft-reported feud with her father, the Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight? What drove her to become a mother of six children in six years? And—perhaps most puzzling of all—what about the other side of Angelina: How did this talented but troubled young actress, barely 35 years old, become a respected Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations as well as the "most powerful celebrity in the world" (unseating Oprah Winfrey) on <i>Forbes'</i> 2009 Celebrity 100 list? <br /><br />The answers that Andrew Morton has uncovered are astonishing, taking us deep inside Angelina's world to show us what shaped her as a child, as an actress, and as a woman struggling to overcome personal demons that have never before been revealed. In this spellbinding biography, Andrew Morton draws upon far-reaching original interviews and research, accompanied by exclusive private photographs, to show us the true story behind both the wild excesses of Angelina's youth and her remarkable work with children and victims of poverty and disaster today.

Description :  For fans of the Netflix series The Crown, a meticulously researched historical tour de force about the secret ties among Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, the Duke of Windsor, and Adolf Hitler before, during, and after World War II.<br /><br />Andrew Morton tells the story of the feckless Edward VIII, later Duke of Windsor, his American wife, Wallis Simpson, the bizarre wartime Nazi plot to make him a puppet king after the invasion of Britain, and the attempted cover-up by Churchill, General Eisenhower, and King George VI of the duke's relations with Hitler. From the alleged affair between Simpson and the German foreign minister to the discovery of top secret correspondence about the man dubbed "the traitor king" and the Nazi high command, this is a saga of intrigue, betrayal, and deception suffused with a heady aroma of sex and suspicion.<br /><br />For the first time, Morton reveals the full story behind the cover-up of those damning letters and diagrams: the daring heist ordered by King George VI, the smooth duplicity of a Soviet spy as well as the bitter rows and recriminations among the British and American diplomats, politicians, and academics. Drawing on FBI documents, exclusive pictures, and material from the German, Russian, and British royal archives, as well as the personal correspondence of Churchill, Eisenhower, and the Windsors themselves, 17 CARNATIONS is a dazzling historical drama, full of adventure, intrigue, and startling revelations, written by a master of the genre.

We know that, despite persistent rumors about his sexuality, he has been married to Mimi Rogers, Nicole Kidman, and Katie Holmes.

With a career that spans decades and ranges from the scandalous to the transcendent, she is a bigger phenomenon than ever. But who is the private woman behind the public image?<br /><br />Andrew Morton, whose #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestsellers about Princess Diana and Monica Lewinsky have proven his ability to gain access to insiders who won't talk to anyone else, answers that question in this decidedly unauthorized new biography.

What followed would come to dominate the world’s media, as a young girl’s crush on the world’s most powerful man led to the cruellest public humiliation for her – and ultimately to the President’s impeachment on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice.&#xa0;<br /><br /> Bestselling biographer Andrew Morton – whose <i>Diana: Her True Story</i> broke to the world the truth behind the marriage of the Prince and Princess of Wales – exclusively interviewed Monica, her family and friends, to provide an in-depth and often terrifying picture of the abuses of power, and of a young woman subjected to trial by media, while herself prevented by law from defending herself.&#xa0;

This sensational, highly addictive biography delves beneath the Beckhams' glossy, glamorous facade to expose the real Posh and Becks behind the headlines and the hype. <br /><br /> Celebrity biographer Andrew Morton, hailed for his insightful, in-depth coverage of luminaries such as Princess Diana and Madonna, explores in detail how David and Victoria Beckham followed their passions -- football and fame -- to become two of the most recognizable people in the world. From their individual childhood stories of relentlessly pursuing their dreams to achieving fame together on an international level, Posh and Becks have earned their unofficial titles as the "King and Queen of Popular Culture," and they never disappoint their fans -- or the tabloids -- when it comes to making news. Their whirlwind courtship, "royal" wedding, alleged affairs, and family struggles have been lived out under the glare of flashbulbs, which they seem to simultaneously court and shun as they attempt to balance their personal lives with their public personas. <br /><br /> With up-to-date coverage and commentary on all things Beckham, including David's disappointing stint at Real Madrid and the family's relocation to Los Angeles, <i>Posh &amp; Becks</i> lays bare the truth behind the tabloids on this fascinating couple.

Release Date :  2013-03-05
Description :  Por el biógrafo de lady Diana, princesa de Gales<br /> &#xa0;<br /> &#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; Cuatro damas. Cuatro ladies. Cuatro mujeres. Cuatro caracteres. Cuatro historias distintas entrelazadas entre sí.<br /> &#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; El salto de la reina Sofía a doña Letizia no es solo un cambio generacional, sino una historia de dolorosa transición: desde los valores aristocráticos del deber, la obligación y el sacrificio hasta una nueva generación donde el amor y la felicidad personal conviven dentro de la jaula de oro de la realeza.<br /> &#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; Esta es la historia más reciente de la familia real española, al igual que de otras dinastías europeas. Unas dinastías donde una nueva generación de plebeyos, desde Letizia Ortiz hasta Catalina Middleton en Inglaterra, ha cambiado la naturaleza de dichas monarquías. Un cambio que Andrew Morton analiza con personal perspicacia: ¿ha resultado ser el experimento una maldición o un consuelo para unas familias reales permanentemente acechadas por la controversia?<br /> &#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; Cuando el príncipe Felipe contrajo matrimonio con Letizia Ortiz se produjo una revolución en palacio. Pero en pocos años, la princesa de Asturias ha pasado a ser considerada la potencial salvadora de la casa de Borbón, inmersa en los escándalos.<br /> &#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; En una historia de fascinantes giros y sobresaltos, la vida, los amores y los desamores de las cuatro grandes damas de la monarquía española ponen de manifiesto la evolución histórica tanto de la familia real como de la propia nación española.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> EL AUTOR<br /> &#xa0;<br /> &#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; Andrew Morton es con toda probabilidad el más afamado biógrafo de celebridades de nuestra generación. A lo largo de sus treinta años como profesional, ha escrito más de veinte libros en los que ha delineado magistralmente la semblanza de grandes estrellas, como la princesa Diana, Madonna, Monica Lewinski, los Beckam, Tom Cruise o Angelina Jolie, y que han figurado en las listas de los más vendidos según The New York Times.<br /> &#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; Morton, más conocido como el «rey de los biógrafos de los famosos», alcanzó el éxito de la noche a la mañana con la publicación en 1992 de Diana: su verdadera historia, la biografía que revelaba el mundo secreto de la desaparecida Diana de Gales. El libro tuvo una enorme repercusión, se tradujo a treinta y cinco idiomas, fue un éxito de ventas en todo el mundo y dio pie a películas, documentales y todo tipo de comentarios acerca de la familia real británica, que modificaron para siempre la percepción de esa antigua institución por parte del público.<br /> &#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; Solo tras la trágica muerte de Diana, acaecida en 1997, Morton pudo revelar que su explosiva biografía había sido escrita con la total y estrecha colaboración de la princesa de Gales. Diana: su verdadera historia no solo llegó al número uno de la lista de ventas de The New York Times, sino que también cosechó numerosos premios para su autor, como el de Autor del Año de los British Book Awards, el de Periodista de Investigación del Año del programa de radio What the papers say y el de la Exclusiva del Año por parte del Club de Prensa de Londres.

Description :  La vera storia della principessa Diana, così come lei aveva deciso di raccontarla. Contro un uomo e il suo Regno, per se stessa e il suo popolo. Nella gabbia dorata della sua vita Diana stava soffocando. Circondata da menzogne e inganni, e dal disprezzo dei sovrani d'Inghilterra che giudicavano la sua tristezza solo l'imbarazzante seccatura di una visionaria, la principessa di Galles escogitò un modo per raccontare la sua verità: di nascosto dal marito e dai reali Diana riuscì con ingegnosi sotterfugi a far arrivare i nastri con le sue sconcertanti rivelazioni a uno tra i migliori giornalisti investigativi britannici. Andrew Morton si ritrovò così tra le mani le parole della principessa stessa che, per la prima volta, raccontava la verità dietro la facciata fiabesca in cui tutto il mondo desiderava credere. In questo libro eccezionale Morton pubblica le registrazioni di Diana a lungo segrete, per riconsegnarci il ritratto onesto e scevro da pregiudizi di una delle figure femminili più amate, ammirate e influenti del nostro tempo: un fidanzamento acerbo, un matrimonio pieno di ombre, i disordini alimentari, i tentativi di suicidio, l'indifferenza del futuro re, i sospetti su Camilla che diventavano certezze, la separazione… La vera storia di lady Diana Spencer si conclude in modo tragico e improvviso, ma la sua eredità dura ancora oggi grazie a questo libro: nelle parole di una donna che era diventata principessa, ma desiderava soltanto essere amata.

Release Date :  2014-10-30
Description :  Kolejna publikacja biografa księżnej Walii, autora bestsellerowej książki Diana. Moja historia " - Andrew Mortona. Tym razem, w "Diana. W pogoni za miłością " Morton ukazuje bardziej romantyczną stronę "Królowej ludzkich serc ". To pogłębiony, intymny wręcz portret niezwykłej kobiety, jednej z najważniejszych ikon końca XX wieku, odmalowany przez pryzmat jej związków i sercowych rozterek. Książka opisuje ostatnie 5 lat życia księżnej, w tym między innymi historię jej związku z Hasnatem Khanem. Jest to premierowe wydanie biografii w Polsce. Książka w wersji oryginalnej, zaktualizowana i uzupełniona ukazała się w Wlk. Brytanii we wrześniu br.Diana – piękna i kochana ikona końca ubiegłego wieku. Samotna, udręczona dusza. Skomplikowane życie wewnętrzne księżnej Walii, po raz pierwszy ujawniła książka "Diana. Moja historia " Andrew Mortona, napisana przy pełnej współpracy z księżną. Po trzęsieniu ziemi, jakim okazała się ta publikacja, Diana wyruszyła w kolejną podróż – odważną przemianę z zaniedbywanej, zdradzanej żony i mimowolnej ikony królewskiego stylu, w pewną siebie, nowoczesną młodą kobietę. Ta transformacja była jej osobistym triumfem, któremu kres położyły przedwcześnie tragiczne wydarzenia z 1997 roku. W swoim nowym niezwykłym studium ostatnich pięciu lat życia Diany Andrew Morton zaprezentował znakomite umiejętności jako dokumentalista i dziennikarz śledczy. Stworzył wyjątkową opowieść, często kontrowersyjną, a niekiedy wręcz niewiarygodną – o zdradzie, działaniach w złej wierze i cynicznych manipulacjach. Nie brak tu nawet oskarżenia o gwałt homoseksualny, obecności – prawdziwej czy tylko domniemanej – służb bezpieczeństwa, fałszowania dokumentów, kradzieży, defraudacji i oszustw, a w tle przewija się barwny korowód tajemniczych, nieoficjalnych doradców księżnej oraz licznych przedstawicieli dworskiego personelu, z których każdy ma własne ukryte cele, często kolidujące z interesami Diany.Mnóstwo pytań pozostało bez odpowiedzi. Toteż wiele lat po śmierci księżnej Walii autor, któremu najbardziej zaufała, raz jeszcze powraca do przeszłości. Korzystając z nowych źródeł i materiałów, próbuje zrozumieć Dianę, człowieka i kobietę – jej nadzieje i lęki, jej radości i dramaty. Odsłaniając kolejne tajemnice, książka staje się podsumowaniem dorosłej części życia księżnej, którą z pewnością ucieszyłby ostateczny wniosek: że nawet śmierć nie zniszczyła jej popularności ani nie odebrała jej statusu królowej ludzkich serc. "Kardiochirurg Hasnat Khan miał skłonności do tycia, wypalał paczkę papierosów dziennie, lubił Guinnessa i Carlsberga, Kentucky Fried Chicken i nocne jazzowe jam sessions.Ale w chwili, gdy oczy Diany spoczęły na niezbyt imponującej postaci urodzonego w Pakistanie chirurga, jej serce zamarło...

26 Prayer that is Powerful and Effective

Author : Andrew Morton
Genre :  Bible Studies  Books  Religion & Spirituality  Christianity 
Price :  $1.99
Release Date :  2016-08-01
Description :  The different words used in the Word of God and rendered “pray”, “prayer”, “make supplication” and “make intercession”, etc., indicate to us something of the many-sidedness of prayer.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> In order to gain a comprehensive view of what God means by “prayer” (and prayer that is “powerful and effective”), the author considers the seventeen different Hebrew words used in the Old Testament for prayer.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> And he also helpfully considers the prayer-life of many of God’s children, which is detailed in Scripture for our learning. This has been recorded not merely for our interest, but rather our edification and for the deepening of our own prayer life.

Genre :  Bible Studies  Books  Religion & Spirituality  Christianity 
Price :  $4.99
Release Date :  2016-08-01
Description :  Two attitudes to the Bible may be summed up in two sentences in two letters the author received from two different people.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> [if !supportLists]·&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; [endif]“I just cannot think I am the only one facing these questions, and finding little comfort in the Bible.”<br /> &#xa0;<br /> [if !supportLists]·&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; [endif]“You have helped me to find intense interest, enjoyment and comfort in the Book.”<br /> &#xa0;<br /> This book is aimed at the first correspondent and the author seeks to change the attitude of the first correspondent to that of the second by focusing on The Lord of the Scriptures and how believers today relate to him. He does so by showing how the Bible, starting in Genesis, unfolds to the present phase of God’s great purpose of redemption as revealed to Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles, in two of his great epistles: Romans and Ephesians.

28 The Principle of Structure

Author : Andrew Morton
Genre :  Bible Studies  Books  Religion & Spirituality  Christianity 
Price :  $1.99
Release Date :  2016-11-01
Description :  Since <i>The Principle of Structure in Scripture</i> is little known, the author wisely commences this book with a simple example of ‘correspondence’. He considers the opening three chapter of the Bible and the closing three chapters, and shows the correspondence there is between them in:<br /> &#xa0;<br /> [if !supportLists]·&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; [endif]subjects;<br /> [if !supportLists]·&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; [endif]themes;<br /> [if !supportLists]·&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; [endif]words.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> It was long ago discovered that the form of the Old Testament writings lay in the repetition of synonymous, or contrasting, thoughts or words in successive lines. Later, this was extended beyond lines to stanzas and paragraphs (spoken of as “correspondence”). Then, later still, to the books of Scripture. Eventually the whole Bible and all its separate books, and the various divisions and sections of each of those separate books, were seen, by reason of recurring themes and subjects, and even words, to have underlying them a marvelous balance in parallelism or correspondence. This is what is known as <i>The Principle of Structure in Scripture</i>, and the author does an excellent job in explaining it simply and in giving many examples to illustrate the principle.

Release Date :  2017-06-21
Description :  Lorsque cette biographie de Diana par Andrew Morton parut en 1992, le public n'avait pas compris à quel point la princesse de Galles était impliquée dans cet ouvrage. Elle y révélait les détails de son du mariage, ses tentatives de suicide, l'existence de Camilla. Privée de ses privilèges, réduite à l'impuissance par la cour d'Angleterre, il lui était impossible à l'époque de reconnaître qu'elle s'était prêtée à des entretiens enregistrés qui s'étaient secrètement déroulés au palais de Kensington. Aujourd'hui, vingt ans après sa disparition lors de la tragique nuit du 31 aout 1997, cette nouvelle édition permet aux lecteurs de retrouver les paroles exactes prononcées par Diana. Ce document unique, testament de l'une des personnalités les plus charismatiques de notre époque, forme l'autobiographie de celle que tous appelaient la « princesse du peuple ».

32 Diana igaz története - saját szavaival

Author : Andrew Morton
Genre :  Biographies & Memoirs  Books 
Price :  $7.99
Release Date :  2017-09-04
Description :  Az 1992-ben megjelent Diana igaz története óriási felzúdulást váltott ki az angol uralkodói családban. Később aztán még a kételkedők számára is nyilvánvaló lett, hogy valóban ez a hercegnő igaz története. Akkoriban, amikor a könyv íródott. Diana csapdában érezte magát a királyi családon belül, és nem volt hatalma az események felett. A hercegnőt azonban a könyv megjelenése ahhoz is hozzásegítette, hogy élete új irányt vegyen. Ez az új, boldogabb élet azonban tragikus hirtelenséggel ért véget. Dianáról 1997-es halála után számtalan könyv jelent meg (magyarul is), melyek igen különböző módon, gyakran elfogultan meséltek a hercegnőről. Az évek során azonban beigazolódott, hogy Andrew Morton kötete kiállja az idő próbáját.
