Product Description: It has been called the toughest yacht race ever--28,000 miles around the globe against the prevailing winds and currents. Yet the British Steel Challenge of ten identical yachts, devised by Chay Blyth, was three times over-subscribed by amateur crews eager to test themselves against the elements. n nVivien Cherry was the only female skipper in the race, and Woman of Steel tells of the responsibilities, the frustrations, the isolation and the exhilaration of racing the yacht Coopers & Lybrand for nine months around the world with an inexperienced crew, coaching, cajoling and driving them every mile of the way. Half nanny, half slavedriver, Vivien discovered the true loneliness of command. This is the gripping account of how she overcame the odds on a voyage which began with doubts, but ended with a fanfare.

Product Description: Born to an impoverished young Tyneside woman in 1906, Catherine Cookson lived a life marked by cruelty and neglect. At the age of 27, she was able to buy a house of her own-a hopeful sign that the escape from her past was complete. In fact, her struggle had barely begun. Following the loss of four babies, a nervous breakdown, and confinement in a psychiatric hospital, she was brought to the brink of suicide and forced to confront the tragedies of her life. The author has known Catherine Cookson for many years and was given full cooperation on this biography by the novelist and her husband Tom, who provided many of the photographs for the book. Originally published in 1997, it tells the story of her long and eventful life through the heroines in her books.

From Library Journal: Shriver, a consistent big-money winner on the women's professional tennis circuit for eight years, has written this autobiography in diary form. She comes across as a nice all-American type, refreshingly unsophisticated. But, unfortunately, niceness is insufficient to make a good book, and this one suffers from a lack of depth. We've heard it all before: the cattiness among the players, the constant travel, the sore limbs, the rained-out matches, the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat. One is left with the perception that professional tennis is an awful life but that the lure of the money practically makes it obligatory, at least if one is as good at it as Shriver.
