READING: Shortlisted for the Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Prize 2008 The Snowball is the first and will be the only biography of the world's richest man, Warren Buffett, written with his full cooperation and collaboration. Combining a unique blend of "The Sage of Omaha's" business savvy, life story and philosophy, The Snowball is essential reading for anyone wishing to discover and replicate the secrets of his business and life success. Warren Buffett is arguably the world's greatest investor. Even as a child he was fascinated by the concept of risk and probability, setting up his first business at the age of six. In 1964 he bought struggling Massachusetts textile firm Berkshire Hathaway and grew it to be the 12th largest corporation in the US purely through the exercise of sound investing principles - a feat never equalled in the annals of business. Despite an estimated net worth of around US$62 billion, Buffett leads an intriguingly frugal life taking home a salary of only £50,000 a year. His only indulgence is a private jet, an extravagance he wryly acknowledges by calling it "The Indefensible". In 2006, he made the largest charitable donation on record, with most of it going to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The Snowball provides a comprehensive, richly detailed insight one of the world's most extraordinary and much loved public figures.

READING: Mike Gentry is in deep trouble. Not only has he hidden his family's financial difficulties from his wife, Susan...not only has he invested foolishly with his college roommate, Ricky...not only has he drifted away from his days of dependence on God... but Mike has promised some things to his family that are weighing him down. His family's needs are unending, the credit balances are rising, the checking balance is perpetually miniscule, and the growing marriage tension between Mike and Susan is apparent to everyone, including their three young children. The tension in his family is crippling his peace, and his mind is going to a place darker than he ever imagined. Then, one day the weather changed. A bright, early snow accosted him. Through it, he learns an unsuspecting lesson from-of all things-a snowball. This winter surprise leads Mike on an imperfect journey to a place of hope. The Snowball covers all the themes familiar to families in America-success, failure, temptation, love, loss, dishonesty, confession, money, happiness, sorrow, conflict, healing, resolution. And revolution. Personal revolution. The characters are believably human, and out of their pain-and out of their eventual joy-begins the flow of hope. Published in connection with Hartline Literary Agency, serving the Christian book community.

READING: Did the Earth once undergo a super ice age, one that froze the entire planet? A global adventure story and a fascinating account of scientist Paul Hoffman's quest to prove his maverick 'Snowball Earth' theory, this is science writing at its most gripping. In SNOWBALL EARTH, Gabrielle Walker takes us on a thrilling natural history expedition in search of supporting evidence for the audacious theory which argues that the Earth experienced a climatic cataclysm 600 million years ago that froze the entire planet from the poles to the equator. Because the global snowball happened so long ago the ice has now long gone - but it left its traces in rocks around the world and in order to see the evidence, Walker visited such places as Australia, Namibia, South Africa and Death Valley, USA. Part adventure story and part travel book, it's a tale of the ultimate human endeavour to understand our origins.

READING: First published in 1964, The Snow Ball is arguably Brigid Brophy's most brilliant fictional performance, consummately melding her avid interests in opera, sexuality and psychology. It is New Year's Eve in London. The occasion is a costume ball on an eighteenth-century theme in the grand London residence of Tom and four-times-married Anne. Anna K attends alone, dressed as Donna Anna from Mozart's Don Giovanni, unhappily preoccupied by her age and appearance and a general distaste for the occasion. But when at midnight she meets a masked Don who kisses her on the mouth, she wonders if this mystery man might share her personal obsessions - 'Mozart, sex and death' - and whether a closer union is not meant to be. 'Written with considerable expertise... An air of indulgent, extravagant corruption and decay glitters over [the novel].' Kirkus Reviews
