Summary

Meet Micky Gluckstad. You'll like him. Bare-knuckle boxer, East End face, playboy and underworld 'corner merchant', Micky's conned money off the best of them - and he's got the scars to prove it. A happy-go-lucky conman who fleeced hundreds of thousands of pounds from the rich, the stupid, the crooked and the shameless, Micky's one of the nicest men you'll ever meet - unless you cross him. Then beware. There are properly hard men and there is Micky Gluckstad. Whether on the cobbles or in the ring, Micky beat them all. Roy 'Pretty Boy' Shaw, Donny 'The Bull' Adams and even Lenny McLean, The Guv'nor himself, fell before Micky's onslaught. He never started a fight, but he never walked away from one either and he hated bullies and braggarts. Reggie Kray said Micky could have been one of the boxing greats, but he never trained and fought for kicks and cash. Despite his incredible story, you won't catch him boasting about his exploits or cashing in as a rent-a-villain. Repeatedly accused of murder but never charged, shot, stabbed and glassed, beaten by the police and locked up in juvenile detention, borstal and prison, he came back laughing from everything the world threw at him.For the first time, Micky tells his explosive story - from his early days in the East End to the millionaire lifestyle his criminal activities afforded him. Micky earned, enjoyed and spent more than a million quid - but never regretted a single day.

    When billions poured into the neglected east London borough hosting the 2012 Olympics, a turf war broke out between crime families for control of a now valuable strip of land.  
     
    Using violence, guile and corruption, one gangster, the Long Fella, emerged as a true untouchable. A team of local detectives made it their business to take him on until Scotland Yard threw them under the bus and the business of putting on 'the greatest show on earth' won the day.  
     
    Award-winning journalist Michael Gillard took up where they left off to expose the tangled web of chief executives, big banks, politicians and dirty money where innocent lives are destroyed and the guilty flourish. Gillard's efforts culminated in a landmark court case, which finally put a spotlight on the Long Fella and his friends and exposed London's real Olympic legacy.

    which produces zero results, frustrations and giving up all together.Commitment. 
    3) Desire a muscular and cut physique but don't want to diet and exercise.  
         to prove point #1, ask yourself the question:                                                                                                
        "What happens inside the body to build muscles?"    
         
    If you don't know— SUPER! Because you will learn exactly 
    what builds muscles, and how to how to maintain muscle mass 
    in this short, yet powerful program. 
    Point #2 Commitment and consistency.    
    In order to commit to a program for 10-12 full weeks, 
    you must have a strong reason why.       
    "why do I want to build more muscle than ever before?" 
    And your answer(s) will lead to commitment and persistence.  
    And point #3 Without diet and exercise,

    The information in this program has been tested on myself, 
    and others whom achieved outstanding results without harming the body.

    And requires the participant to spend $90 - $150 on NATURAL supplements  
    to successfully complete the 10-12 week program. 
    Be warned.    
    This program isn't a quick fix, requires 10-12 weeks of dedication, 
    and a lot of work from your part.

    The micromassager is a bone ball attached to a bone or wooden handle by a steel shaft.
    
    Traditionally, these instruments were made out of ivory. Hardly appropriate these days, of course. These current instruments are beautifully handcrafted from sustainable, sterilised New Zealand beef bone and native hardwood, and the bone balls have similar properties to ivory in therapeutic application. The construction is deceptively simple in that the results obtained are beyond the scope of ordinary acupressure. These traditional type instruments are in fact rather ingenious.
