Summary

Rock the Boat is a modern interpretation of the best selling Victorian classic 'Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome.

We follow a fame hungry teenage rock band along The River Thames on route to play at the famous music event 'Reading Festival'. The problem is, they're not booked to perform and no one knows who they are! They consider this a minor detail and put their plans into action to go viral and become the new international rock sensation!

Access into the festival lies with the a band's front man Jerome, who is expecting festival tickets for his birthday. But excitement turns to despair when a misunderstanding delivers wrong tickets and a boat trip!  The old boat has seen better days but determined not to let this ruin their big break, Jerome is forced to improvise to sail the band to stardom.

He convinces his band mates to take to the water in the dilapidated boat, but a catalogue of errors and encounters with unwelcome guests cause plenty of waves along the way. This cruise is far from plain sailing - will they make it to the festival on time, and will they go viral for all the wrong reasons? 

Trashed Classics puts a new spin on literary fiction to make it accessible and relevant for a new generation. With modern interpretations, diverse engaging characters, and references to popular culture, readers are encouraged to identify with a traditional genre that might otherwise be dismissed as dated, uninspiring and irrelevant.

    From the medicine we take, the treatments we receive, the aptitude and psychometric tests given by employers, the cars we drive, the clothes we wear to even the beer we drink, statistics have given shape to the world we inhabit. For the media, statistics are routinely 'damning', 'horrifying', or, occasionally, 'encouraging'. Yet, for all their ubiquity, most of us really don't know what to make of statistics. Exploring the history, mathematics, philosophy and practical use of statistics, Eileen Magnello - accompanied by Bill Mayblin's intelligent graphic illustration - traces the rise of statistics from the ancient Babylonians, Egyptians and Chinese, to the censuses of Romans and the Greeks, and the modern emergence of the term itself in Europe. She explores the 'vital statistics' of, in particular, William Farr, and the mathematical statistics of Karl Pearson and R.A. Fisher.She even tells how knowledge of statistics can prolong one's life, as it did for evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould, given eight months to live after a cancer diagnoses in 1982 - and he lived until 2002. This title offers an enjoyable, surprise-filled tour through a subject that is both fascinating and crucial to understanding our world.

    Who could have imagined that at a time of deep global uncertainty and institutional failure, a soft-spoken figure dressed in white would step onto the world stage with a message of hope? The election of Jorge Mario Bergoglio as Pope Francis marks an epic moment in troubled times for a world struggling to imagine its future. And what better way to celebrate this moment than with a light touch — a cartoon strip called simply “Francis,” about an unlikely pope who says and does surprising things almost daily to offer hope based on compassion and humor. In this e-book original,  Kansas City cartoonist Pat Marrin joins humor to hope in Francis, the adventures of a reluctant pope who is renewing his church by turning it upside down in order to set free its original spirit and purpose.

    From Government housing slums in Detroit to the bling-bling penthouses of the Hip-Hop monarchy, Marshall Mathers has had quite a journey. In My Skin documents a life that is angry, vivid and shockingly honest. 
     
    Using the stories, characters and rantings from his albums, a dramatic, operatic and highly comedic adventure is told. In addition to biographical events, the authors draw on the self-created characters that exist in Eminem's music.
