Delve into the epic story from the pair who stole the hearts of TV viewers everywhere, as Ant & Dec take us on a journey through never-before-seen photography and the very best tales from their 30 years on television! From their modest beginnings in Byker Grove through to their "unique" time as pop stars and an award-laden TV career, those three decades have flown by in the blink of an eye. With an incredible cast of supporting characters, like their first scriptwriter (an unknown comedian called David Walliams), Saturday night games with Hollywood A-listers, the celebrities they work with in the jungle and much more! Told through the lens of every TV show they've made, as well as everything they've learnt along the way, this is the hilarious and funny journey of two ordinary lads from Newcastle who went on to achieve extraordinary things. Ant: As the old Chinese proverb says, 'Good things come in pairs'. Dec: And as another Chinese proverb says, 'If you've been in a double act with your best mate for thirty years, why not write a book about all your most memorable moments in three decades of showbusiness?'

They called him the 'angriest black man in America' . . . Celebrated and vilified the world over for his courageous but bitter fight to gain for millions of black men and women the equality and respect denied them by their white neighbours, Malcolm X inspired as many people in the United States as he caused to fear him. His remarkable autobiography, completed just before his murder in 1965, ranges from Omaha and Michigan to Harlem and Mecca, and tells of a young, disenfranchised man whose descent into drug addition, robbery and prison was only reversed by his belief in the rights struggle for black America, and his conversion to the Nation of Islam. Not only is this an enormously important record of the Civil Rights Movement in America, but also the scintillating story of a man who refused to allow anyone to tell him who or what he was. Product Information: • ISBN: 9780141032726 • Author: Malcolm X • Publisher: Penguin Books • Format: Paperback • Pages: 512 • Dimensions: 19.7 x 12.9 x 3.4cm
