Las Vegas has been endlessly mythologized in film, television, and literature, but there's never been anything quite like The Vegas Diaries. This memoir is more than simply a salacious tale of sex, sin, sleaze, showgirls, and sabotage--it is a story that takes the experience of transitioning from girlhood to womanhood in the most objectifying environment ever and makes it universal. It is a story that explores our struggle to begin life away from the family and the trauma of choosing a path our parents don't approve of. It is a story about learning to live life on our own, about the challenge and exhilaration of becoming independent, about making mistakes and having to live with them. Much like the city of Vegas itself, The Vegas Diaries is populated with a vibrant cast of loveable but cracked characters. Stereotypes of familiar archetypes are, along with popular clichés of the city, stripped away. We get to know the cast members and through their stories gain insight into why people come to this city in the middle of the desert and why it's so difficult to leave. There's an addictive quality not just to the lifestyle Vegas perpetuates but to its landscape, the neon and hyperbole and striking juxtapositions the city is famous for. The Vegas Diaries is about my improbable journey from nerd to Vegas showgirl dancing in the most popular casinos in the town; about my struggles with drugs and alcohol, abuse and an eating disorder; about my love affair with Bacchus' favorite city; and how I managed to escape from its seductive grip and start over. The Vegas Diaries takes you behind the curtain and shares in scintillating detail what it's like to be a showgirl: the backstabbing, camaraderie, celebrity encounters, excess, dejection, and glory. The memoir chronicles how even the worst trauma can be turned into something positive; how I was able to overcome what at the time seemed like insurmountable obstacles; how I was able to make peace with my demons; and most of all, how this journey has allowed me to discover my true self-worth.

The #1 New York Times bestselling author returns with this candid, humorous, and captivating memoir chronicling her journey toward reinvention and self-acceptance. 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 relationship, she set out to reinvent herself on no one's terms but her own. Deciding to roll the dice and begin again in the glamorous and dreamlike city of Las Vegas, Holly quickly realized that while she may have left her past in the rearview mirror, the labels and stereotypes that came from it weren't so quick to leave her. With a fierce commitment to take charge of her own narrative, Holly dives headfirst into a journey of self-discovery. After a whirlwind stint on Dancing with the Stars, she snags the coveted lead role in the Strip's hottest new burlesque spectacular and lands a reality series spotlighting her new life as a single woman. If her own television show and dream job as a showgirl weren't enough to keep her busy, Holly explores the decadent, exclusive inner-world of Sin City, navigating it's social and dating scene with humor and heart. When it comes to romance, she is met with an eclectic cast of characters, from fame hounds to long distance loves to the occasional celebrity and more than one tabloid mishap. In this reflective, heartwarming memoir, Holly learns that each dating disaster holds an important, and in some cases difficult to face, lesson about herself. The Vegas Diaries is a comedy of errors, set against the glitz and glamour of the dazzling Vegas strip. Through the wild and crazy experiences on one young woman's quest to "have it all," Holly faces her fears, anxieties, and insecurities to discover that her journey to self-sufficiency is also her path to healing. Letting go of trying to prove herself to others, Holly finally gains the courage to confront her past-and in the process finds the life and love she deserves.

From the king of “Gonzo” journalism and bestselling author who brought you Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas comes another astonishing volume of letters by Hunter S. Thompson. Brazen, incisive, and outrageous as ever, this second volume of Thompson’s private correspondence is the highly anticipated follow-up to The Proud Highway. When that first book of letters appeared in 1997, Time pronounced it "deliriously entertaining"; Rolling Stone called it "brilliant beyond description"; and The New York Times celebrated its "wicked humor and bracing political conviction." Spanning the years between 1968 and 1976, these never-before-published letters show Thompson building his legend: running for sheriff in Aspen, Colorado; creating the seminal road book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas; twisting political reporting to new heights for Rolling Stone; and making sense of it all in the landmark Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72. To read Thompson's dispatches from these years—addressed to the author's friends, enemies, editors, and creditors, and such notables as Jimmy Carter, Tom Wolfe, and Kurt Vonnegut—is to read a raw, revolutionary eyewitness account of one of the most exciting and pivotal eras in American history.

Jennifer Ouellette never took maths in the sixth form, mostly because she - like most of us - assumed she wouldn' t need it much in real life. But then the English graduate, now an award-winning science-writer, had a change of heart and decided to revisit the equations and formulas that had haunted her youth. The Calculus Diaries is the fun and fascinating account of a year spent confronting her numbers-phobia head on. With wit and verve, Ouellette explains how she discovered that maths could apply to everything from petrol mileages to dieting, rollercoaster rides to winning in Las Vegas.

In 2013, Bradley Howard set off on a three month journey, which ran roughly 3000 miles across the United States of America. He visited 4 States and 'no-trace' camped 75 times. What is more, Brad dodged many venemous spiders and snakes on his way too. Whilst on the tour, he visited many amazing places, including The Grand Canyon, Yosemite National Park, 'Sin City'; Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Death Valley, California. He encountered legendary roads such as the Coastal Highway 1 and Route 66, mega bridges such as The Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, and much more besides. Through his trip, Bradley kept a journal, which he has now turned into this book, to share his knowledge and adventures with others. He writes of his reflections on profound insights that came from his adventure, how he managed to live on a budget whilst being on the road, and how he kept himself fuelled whilst he still maintained his Vegan diet. Along the way, Bradley worked hard to tread in harmony with the environment.
