With the nation gripped by Love Island fever, the show's most popular contestant ever shares his unique take on the world in an audiobook that will be hilarious, endearing, heartfelt and as lovable as its author.  Chris Hughes walked away from the sizzling hot, smash hit show Love Island as its biggest star. Viewers fell in love with this cheeky, happy-go-lucky guy who surprised people by being unafraid to show his vulnerable side just as readily as having a laugh with his mates in the sun. They were captivated by the roller-coaster relationship between Chris and girlfriend Olivia and entertained by the bromance that developed between Chris and best pal Kem.  But what really makes Chris tick? What made this down-to-earth country lad swap life on the farm with his family for red carpets and newspaper front pages? Chris reveals all about his life before the hit reality TV show and how the crippling anxiety he has suffered from before still haunts him to this day. He shares how he has found fame and adjusted to his new life as well as the things he is learning about himself as his life is put under the spotlight for all to see. With his trademark sense of humour and way with words, this is Chris' take on the world, his life laid bare.  1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Hughes. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hodd/001408/bk_hodd_001408_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Connie Bischoff, Photographer: I was born and raised in the small town of Rocanville Saskatchewan. It was there I attended school Kindergarten to Grade 12. Uncle Romeo Lemieux was the French teacher at the school and I one of his students. Soon after graduation I moved to Saskatoon and then Edmonton, Alberta. It was here I met my very loving and handsome husband Murray Bischoff. We married and were blessed with two beautiful precious daughters Shaelyn and Nevada. We were on top of the world raising our girls and enjoying life as it unfolded beneath our feet. I was very fortunate to be able to stay at home for 9 years with the girls. I was ecstatic and elated when the girls were old enough to allow me to spread my wings once again into the working world! I landed a part time job and was soon recruited from that to one I thought I could only dream about-- finishing carpentry! I come from a long line of carpenters and wood workers and it is in my blood! As a little girl and growing up I always admired these skills in both my grandfathers Omer Lemieux and Louis Feist, my father Ken Lemieux, and many of my uncles! I poured my heart and soul into this job, took great pride and thoroughly knew I could do this for the rest of my life or so I thought. It was then my life, indeed, our family's life would face a dramatic turn of events! A work related injury took us all on a wild roller coaster and many horrific turn of events! I suffered nerve damage after a torn ulnar nerve in my left elbow. It soon developed into a rare neurological chronic pain disease, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome otherwise known as C.R.P.S or R.S.D! Our lives were all put to a test through the next ten years and almost ended tragically with the loss of my life 6 years ago! It was here a miracle occurred! God, my grandpa Omer in Heaven and Guardian Angel Uncle Romeo through prayer held my hand and led me back to Earth! It is here I want to say an added thank you to my very devoted team of medical professionals, family, friends and God's intervention of a miracle, as well as Friesen Press for the four years of patience while I sorted through my medical challenges and understanding of this horrific most painful and extremely challenging disease! In the first two years Uncle Romeo and I accidentally stumbled upon a dream-- the dream which you are holding in your hands now! Our dream was abruptly put on hold 8 years ago while the racetrack of survival almost ended in disaster! In January 2014 I was finally able to muster enough strength mentally and physically to complete 'the project' as we had called it from the beginning now titled 'Right sideUpside Down'. I hope you all enjoy 'the project' of two Artists that converged and combined 'his' writing interpretations and 'her' artistic photographer's interpretation between the covers of 'Right sideUpside Down'! I walk viewers to the edge of sorrow then dance one's mind to simple joy, love and faith. I transport the viewer to sit on the 'fence' of society, religion and everyday life! Dare one speak their opinions and inner truths of the Artist's interpretations!~~~PAUSE~~~I wait, I watch and then wait some more!~~~DETOUR AHEAD~~~An unannounced 'JOURNEY' to shake hands with the 'BRIGHT LIGHT'~~~RETURNING~~~To once again carry one's imagination within to daring and misunderstood and mysterious worlds! AMEN!puddincups...just me...the best that I can be...A.K.A Connie Bischoff...

#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER The most important woman in the history of television journalism gives us her inspiring and riveting memoir. After more than fifty years of interviewing heads of state, world leaders, movie stars, criminals, murderers, inspirational figures, and celebrities of all kinds, Barbara Walters has turned her gift for examination onto herself to reveal the forces that shaped her extraordinary life. Barbara Walters's perception of the world was formed at a very early age. Her father, Lou Walters, was the owner and creative mind behind the legendary Latin Quarter nightclub, and it was his risk-taking lifestyle that gave Barbara her first taste of glamour. It also made her aware of the ups and downs, the insecurities, and even the tragedies that can occur when someone is willing to take great risks, for Lou Walters didn't just make several fortunes-he also lost them. Barbara learned early about the damage that such an existence can do to relationships-between husband and wife as well as between parent and child. Through her roller-coaster ride of a childhood, Barbara had a close companion, her mentally challenged sister, Jackie. True, Jackie taught her younger sister much about patience and compassion, but Barbara also writes honestly about the resentment she often felt having a sister who was so 'different' and the guilt that still haunts her. All of this-the financial responsibility for her family, the fear, the love-played a large part in the choices she made as she grew up: the friendships she developed, the relationships she had, the marriages she tried to make work. Ultimately, thanks to her drive, combined with a decent amount of luck, she began a career in television. And what a career it has been! Against great odds, Barbara has made it to the top of a male-dominated industry. She was the first woman cohost of the Today show, the first female network news coanchor, the host and producer of countless top-rated Specials, the star of 20/20, and the creator and cohost of The View. She has not just interviewed the world's most fascinating figures, she has become a part of their world. These are just a few of the names that play a key role in Barbara's life, career, and book: Yasir Arafat, Warren Beatty, Menachem Begin, George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush, Jimmy Carter, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chávez, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Roy Cohn, the Dalai Lama, Princess Diana, Katharine Hepburn, King Hussein, Angelina Jolie, Henry Kissinger, Monica Lewinsky, Richard Nixon, Rosie O'Donnell, Christopher Reeve, Anwar Sadat, John Wayne . . . the list goes on and on. Barbara Walters has spent a lifetime auditioning: for her bosses at the TV networks, for millions of viewers, for the most famous people in the world, and even for her own daughter, with whom she has had a difficult but ultimately quite wonderful and moving relationship. This book, in some ways, is her final audition, as she fully opens up both her private and public lives. In doing so, she has given us a story that is heartbreaking and honest, surprising and fun, sometimes startling, and always fascinating.
