Raw, gritty, compassionate, surprising and darkly funny - Australian legend Jimmy Barnes' unforgettable childhood memoir. A household name, an Australian rock icon, the elder statesman of OzPubRock - there isn't an accolade or cliché that doesn't apply to Jimmy Barnes. But long before Cold Chisel and Barnesy, long before the tall tales of success and excess, there was the true story of James Dixon Swan - a working class boy whose family made the journey from Scotland to Australia in search of a better life.

Whether you are a fan of Jimmy or not this book will leave you invested and wanting more. I'll be moving straight on to listening to his second book. I respect that Jimmy has read this whole audible book himself - he certainly tells the story in a way I don't think anyone else could.

The secret to Marie Kondo's unique and simple KonMari tidying method is to focus on what you want to keep, not what you want to get rid of.

A good second book to the KonMari method. Some extra motivation but not as much of a story line. I have listened to this book on my commute to work and I will re listen to it as I organise my home again. Its the little reminder that you can always make do with less.

I read the paperback version of this book a year ago and always referred back to it for inspiration. I feel relaxed listening to the advice in this book and the storyline nature which this book is written. I will listen to it many more times over, whenever I need the motivation to get my house in order.

Half of this book covers the O J Simpson trial, if that's what interests you. Otherwise a good insight into life before children, life with Robert Kardashian and a genuine honesty from Kris.

When you've come out the other side of the bizarre, twisted world of the Playboy mansion, where do you land? If you're Holly Madison...there's no place like Las Vegas. After making the sudden decision to reclaim her life, Holly broke free from the sheltered, deceptive confines of the mansion (which meant exiting a hit television show) and was determined to start her life over...from scratch. Without the security of a job or a relationship, she set out to reinvent herself on no one's terms but her own.
