When Harold was sixteen, he secured a job at a Melbourne advertising agency just by virtue of having travelled the furthest for the interview. Living Large traces Mitchell's journey as media buyer inside several agencies to his brave decision to start in 1976 his own media-buying operation, a radical and, to the established agencies, highly unpopular move. Mitchell went on to become Australia's biggest media buyer. His business journey led to close friendships with the two Kerrys, Packer and Stokes, and a long relationship with the Packer family. His passion for the arts saw him experience some colourful moments with Gough Whitlam, Dame Elisabeth Murdoch, Dudley Moore and folk singer Odetta. Living Large reveals Harold's loves: family, a great business deal, a brilliantly produced TV commercial, and dislikes: disloyalty, laziness and business yobbos, and presents guidance for young business executives trying to make it in the jungle. Part autobiography, part guidebook, Living Large gets into the mind of one of Australia's most intriguing business identities.

'Brilliant, funny and immensely moving' Catherine Isaac, author of You, Me, Everything 'Well, that was a tearjerker! Anna McPartlin's Below the Big Blue Sky is a MORE than worthy follow-up to The Last Days of Rabbit Hayes' Marian Keyes *** There's no family quite like the Hayes, and yet they're just like any other - they love each other, they look out for each other and they drive each other mad. When their youngest, Rabbit, dies tragically at just forty, the Hayes are almost torn apart by their grief. Without her beloved mum, twelve-year-old Bunny is adrift; without Rabbit, there can be no Bunny. Her Granny is concerned when Bunny insists on being called by her real name, Juliet. Even surrounded by the noise and chaos of the Hayes, Juliet feels lost and alone. Meanwhile, Rabbit's sister Grace has something else on her mind. She's got the gene that made her sister ill, and she hasn't told anyone yet. All she can think about are the things she's always wanted to do, like fly a plane or climb a mountain, or watch her four children grow up. She doesn't know how to share the news that may break her family, but she knows she needs their support, now more than ever. Despite squabbling over what Rabbit will wear at the wake and their dad burying himself in the past with his diaries, the Hayes family know there's only one way they'll get through this: together. This huge-hearted novel is about grief, family, the messiness of life and finding humour in the most unexpected of places. Below the Big Blue Sky will make you laugh, cry and fill you with joy. Look out for Anna McPartlin's new novel Waiting for the Miracle. ***What readers have been saying about Below the Big Blue Sky*** 'Equally heartbreaking and hilarious' 'You will laugh, you will cry and you will laugh while crying' 'A real, raw, beautiful depiction of life, love and loss' 'The story has us laughing, crying and on the edge of our seats' 'A beautiful story, beautifully written' 'You'll howl laughing and bawl crying, even on the same page' 'A truly wonderful read' 'It is OK to laugh while grieving' 'Fantastically funny and heartbreaking in equal measure' 'Big-hearted, amusing, compassionate, emotional' '#RememberRabbitHayes' 'Moving, heartbreaking and funny' 'I love, love, love the Hayes family' 'Desperately sad, hilariously funny and incredibly moving all at the same time'

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From Jane Leavy, the award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Boy and Sandy Koufax, comes the definitive biography of Babe Ruth—the man Roger Angell dubbed "the model for modern celebrity." A Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2018 “Leavy’s newest masterpiece…. A major work of American history by an author with a flair for mesmerizing story-telling.” —Forbes He lived in the present tense—in the camera’s lens. There was no frame he couldn’t or wouldn’t fill. He swung the heaviest bat, earned the most money, and incurred the biggest fines. Like all the new-fangled gadgets then flooding the marketplace—radios, automatic clothes washers, Brownie cameras, microphones and loudspeakers—Babe Ruth "made impossible events happen." Aided by his crucial partnership with Christy Walsh—business manager, spin doctor, damage control wizard, and surrogate father, all stuffed into one tightly buttoned double-breasted suit—Ruth drafted the blueprint for modern athletic stardom. His was a life of journeys and itineraries—from uncouth to couth, spartan to spendthrift, abandoned to abandon; from Baltimore to Boston to New York, and back to Boston at the end of his career for a finale with the only team that would have him. There were road trips and hunting trips; grand tours of foreign capitals and post-season promotional tours, not to mention those 714 trips around the bases. After hitting his 60th home run in September 1927—a total that would not be exceeded until 1961, when Roger Maris did it with the aid of the extended modern season—he embarked on the mother of all barnstorming tours, a three-week victory lap across America, accompanied by Yankee teammate Lou Gehrig. Walsh called the tour a "Symphony of Swat." The Omaha World Herald called it "the biggest show since Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey, and seven other associated circuses offered their entire performance under one tent." In The Big Fella, acclaimed biographer Jane Leavy recreates that 21-day circus and in so doing captures the romp and the pathos that defined Ruth’s life and times. Drawing from more than 250 interviews, a trove of previously untapped documents, and Ruth family records, Leavy breaks through the mythology that has obscured the legend and delivers the man.

The never-before-told story of BHP Billiton's global conquests, told by the key players. BHP is part of Australia's DNA; but it remains an enigma. The Big Fella: The rise and rise of BHP Billiton is the compelling story of how BHP and its partner Billiton rose from the humblest beginnings in the Australian Outback and on the Indonesian island of Belitung to starry heights on the great bourses of the world. Based on more than 60 exclusive interviews, it rips away the superficial gloss to expose the political and industrial forces that really drive Big Business in the 21st century. In an investigative tour de force, authors Peter Thompson and Robert Macklin reveal the visions, the schemes, the scandals and the corporate life-and-death struggles that have characterised BHP's evolution from the first lucky strike by the mysterious Charles Rasp at Broken Hill in 1883 to its merger with Billiton in 2001 to its daring $150 billion bid for Rio Tinto six years later. The result is a gripping story of foresight and blunder, of nation-building and rampant ego, of greed and of grace, written by two master storytellers with, for the first time, access to the key players themselves. The Big Fella won the 2010 Blake Dawson Prize for Business Literature.
