Joe Biden: Quotes to Live By is an inspiring and hilarious collection of over 170 quotes from one of America's most beloved politicians. Homespun, caring and empathetic, Joe is the nation's uncle, but his sometimes bizarre and baffling remarks can seem misjudged at best and offensive at worst, even when they are the innocent result of his no-filter plainspeak. With his fascinating backstory, from conquering his famous stutter and his humble middle-class upbringing, to becoming the youngest senator elected to Congress at the time, to the deep tragedy of the loss of his young wife and baby daughter, and later his son Beau, to his light-hearted bromance with President Obama, Joe has an unparalleled ability to connect with the ordinary 'joe'. Despite his tendency for foot-in-the-mouth gaffes, his integrity, moral fortitude and patriotism shine from his words, revealing a dedicated public servant, devoted family man, person of faith and ardent American.You will find his thoughts on success, and his many failures, along with his hopes and dreams for the American people - because it's always the people whom he serves. Joe Biden has said, 'In this world, emotion has become suspect. The accepted style is smooth, antiseptic and passionless', which is certainly something that could never be said about him.
Save water: Drink Prosecco
Prince Philip was a man of many, many words. For almost eighty years since he first entered the public's eye, Prince Philip had been telling the world exactly what he thought of it. Over the years, Prince Philip's quips and wisecracks have been labelled as shocking and even outrageous, but at the root of this colourful royal was a very funny man who seemingly never took life too seriously. He was an icon of the royal family and a reminder of a time when the world was a different place - and for that, we, the Great British public, salute him. This tiny tome is a celebration of his extraordinary life in the service of his subjects, as well as a compilation of his best (and worst) one-liners, in his own inimitable style. 'I rather doubt whether anyone has ever been genuinely shocked by anything I have said.' Prince Philip, in an interview, 1999. Smashing Fact No.1: Philip was 13 years old when he met his future wife, Elizabeth. They were both attending the wedding of Princess Marina of Greece and the Duke of Kent in 1934. Elizabeth was eight at the time. The pair met again five years later.

The creative genius who gave us the Little Black Dress and Chanel No. 5.
Almost 50 years after her death, Coco Chanel remains one of the world's most influential fashion designers. Her story is one of creative brilliance and innovation – she was a driving force in freeing women from the restrictive clothing they had been obliged to wear for generations. 'In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different,' Chanel would say, and throughout her life she demonstrated extraordinary passion and determination to change the world around her.
There is much wisdom to glean from Chanel's self-reflections, while her sharp wit and joie de vivre will amuse, surprise and inspire in equal measure.

With over 135 years of Ashes history, here's a collection of the best quotes and defining moments - from 'Bodyline' to 'Botham's Ashes', from Lord's to the Gabba, from 'The Don' to 'The Barmy army'. 'England have only three major problems. They can't bat, they can't bowl and they can't field.' - Martin Johnson's assessment at the start of the 1986-87 tour.

Their bellies may stretch their spandex beyond saving and their capes
may only fly after a large ominous-sounding fart, but - make no mistake
- dads are superheroes. Well, half the time, at least. Because, let's
not forget, when it comes to cocking things up, dads are also
incredibly self-sufficient. Ignored by mums everywhere and taken
advantage by babies of all ages, being a dad is arguably the world's
toughest job (after motherhood, of course). Overworked, underpaid and
constantly in need of feeding, dads deserve just as
much attention, validation and an equal share of the duvet as
mums, and yet often have to settle for second best. From taxi-ing
teenagers to funding fun, juggling jobs to half-arsing house chores,
dads simply are the best. Even at their hungover worst.

New York City is one of the most visited cities in the world, attracting about 65 million visitors every year.
