Running: The Autobiography by Ronnie O’Sullivan
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1012 KB
Overview: I used to rely on drugs and alcohol to keep me going, but now I’ve got the healthiest addiction going – running.

This book explains how running has helped me to fight my demons – my addictive personality, depression, my dad’s murder conviction, the painful break-up with the mother of my children – and allowed me to win five World Snooker Championships.

It is also about all of the great things in my life – my kids, snooker, my dad’s release from prison, great mates who have helped me, and the psychiatrist Dr Steve Peters, who has taught me how not to run away when things get tough.

Finally, it’s about what it’s like to get the buzz – from running, from snooker, from life. Because when it comes down to it, everyone needs something to drive them on.

David Jason: The Autobiography by David Jason

David Jason: The Autobiography by David Jason
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 335 MB
Overview: The long-awaited autobiography of one of Britain’s best-loved actors.Born the son of a Billingsgate market porter at the height of the Second World War, David Jason spent his early life dodging bombs and bullies, both with impish good timing.

Giving up on an unloved career as an electrician, he turned his attention to acting and soon, through a natural talent for making people laugh, found himself working with the leading lights of British comedy in the 1960s and ’70s: Eric Idle, Michael Palin, Bob Monkhouse and Ronnie Barker.

Barker would become a mentor to David, leading to hugely successful stints in Porridge and Open All Hours. It wasn’t until 1981, kitted out with a sheepskin jacket, a flat cap, and a clapped-out Reliant Regal, that David found the part that would capture the nation’s hearts: the beloved Derek ‘Del Boy’ Trotter in Only Fools and Horses.

Never a one-trick pony, he had an award-winning spell as TV’s favourite detective Jack Frost, took a country jaunt as Pop Larkin in the Darling Buds of May, and even voiced a crime-fighting cartoon rodent in the much-loved children’s show Danger Mouse.

But life hasn’t all been so easy: from missing out on a key role in Dad’s Army to nearly drowning in a freak diving accident, David has had his fair share of ups and downs, and has lost some of his nearest and dearest along the way.

David’s is a touching, funny and warm-hearted story, which charts the course of his incredible five decades at the top of the entertainment business. He’s been a shopkeeper and a detective inspector, a crime-fighter and a market trader, and he ain’t finished yet. As Del Boy would say, it’s all cushty. With an introduction narrated by David himself.

Taken Care Of: An Autobiography by Edith Sitwell

Taken Care Of: An Autobiography by Edith Sitwell
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 2.1MB
Overview: Dame Edith Sitwell died while this autobiography was in the course of printing. One of the last acts of her life was to approve the ‘specimen page’ from the printer. She did not live to correct her proofs and what, if any, changes she might have made is a matter for conjecture. The book, as she wrote it, must now stand as the last prose work to come from a great writer of the last century and a wise, witty and compassionate woman. ‘I trust’, she wrote, ‘that I have hurt nobody.’

Dame Edith was much more than one of the leading English poets of her lifetime. Long, long before the age of television introduced the synthetic, professional ‘personality’, she was a personality without the inverted commas, and thus became a familiar figure to a public far wider than the readership of her poetry, criticism and essays. With her remarkable brothers, she stood for certain important and lasting I qualities in the artistic life of the nation-for the war against philistinism, for a progressive outlook that in its day seemed, and was, rebellious, and yet for a spirit of continuity and tradition in art that has become apparent to the layman only in the perspective of time. This sense of tradition and respect for the past was by no means incompatible with a degree of eccentricity which gives Taken Care Of its remarkable and unique flavour.

Autobiography of Mark Twain Vol 2 by Mark Twain, Grover Gardner (Narrator)
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 730mb
Overview: Mark Twain’s complete, uncensored Autobiography was an instant best seller when the first volume was published in 2010, on the centennial of the author’s death, as he requested. Published to rave reviews, the Autobiography was hailed as the capstone of Twain’s career. It captures his authentic and unsuppressed voice, speaking clearly from the grave and brimming with humor, ideas, and opinions.

The eagerly awaited second volume delves deeper into Twain’s life, uncovering the many roles he played in his private and public worlds. Filled with his characteristic blend of humor and ire, the narrative ranges effortlessly across the contemporary scene. He shares his views on writing and speaking, his preoccupation with money, and his contempt for the politics and politicians of his day. Affectionate and scathing by turns, his intractable curiosity and candor are everywhere on view.

Autobiography of Mark Twain Vol 1 by Mark Twain

Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 1: The Complete and Authoritative Edition by Mark Twain, Grover Gardner (Narrator)
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 675mb
Overview: “I’ve struck it!” Mark Twain wrote in a 1904 letter to a friend. “And I will give it away – to you. You will never know how much enjoyment you have lost until you get to dictating your autobiography.”

Thus, after dozens of false starts and hundreds of pages, Twain embarked on his “Final (and Right) Plan” for telling the story of his life. His innovative notion – to “talk only about the thing which interests you for the moment” – meant that his thoughts could range freely. The strict instruction that many of these texts remain unpublished for 100 years meant that when they came out, he would be “dead, and unaware, and indifferent” and that he was therefore free to speak his “whole frank mind”.

The year 2010 marks the 100th anniversary of Twain’s death. In celebration of this important milestone, here, for the first time, is Mark Twain’s uncensored autobiography, in its entirety, exactly as he left it. This major literary event offers the first of three volumes and presents Mark Twain’s authentic and unsuppressed voice, brimming with humor, ideas, and opinions, and speaking clearly from the grave, as he intended.

Edited by Harriet Elinor Smith and other editors of the Mark Twain Project.

Mark Twain (1835 – 1910) was born Samuel L. Clemens in the town of Florida, Missouri. One of the most popular and influential authors our nation has ever produced, his keen wit and incisive satire earned him praise from both critics and peers. He has been called not only the greatest humorist of his age but the father of American literature.
