Sorry: don't know how to do the link.

The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin is 77p

The nost suprising thing about this is how readable he is: at one point it incorporates some text (a letter?) from a contemporary of Franklin's, which I ended up skimming because of its dated usages - but Franklin's voice is fresh despite the gap of centuries. It's more a collection of memories than a full autobiograhy - somewhat patchy and incomplete - and I was left, I suppose, wondering how honest his portrait of himself was. But fascinating stuff, and I was certainly tempted to make use of his system of relentless self improvement.

The Golden Bough is one of the many, many books that I feel I ought to have read, but never quite got around to doing so. At a mere 61p I have bought it and can now convince myself that I really will read it one of these days. :)

Pure Gold - - - 77p - - - 304 pages - - - Football Manager and Entrepreneur.
David Gold is a remarkable man with an even more improbable story.

Pure Gold is one of the most amazing rags to riches stories ever told because this one begins on the very bottom rung of the ladder and finishes at the very top for this self-made multi-millionaire.
The beguiling tale starts with genuinely abject poverty and extreme ill health in the back streets of the East End of London in the austerity of the war years, and concludes with an extensive business empire, private helicopters and jets, and a magnificent mansion in the heart of the Surrey countryside.
Most importantly to Gold, he also won a significant personal battle over his despised father.

The entrepreneurial businessman is now the charismatic chairman of West Ham United Football Club. He owns Gold Group International, one of the most profitable private businesses in the United Kingdom. It is the parent company of retailer Ann Summers, lingerie chain Knickerbox, Gold Aviation. In May 2005 he bought the oldest surviving FA Cup trophy for almost half a million pounds at auction to prevent it going to Germany.

This unique edition of The Golden Bough from Dead Dodo Vintage includes the full original text as well as exclusive features not available in other editions.
The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion is a wide-ranging, comparative study of mythology and religion, written by the Scottish anthropologist Sir James George Frazer (1854-1941). It was first published in two volumes in 1890; in three volumes in 1900; the third edition, published 1906-15, comprised twelve volumes. The work was aimed at a wide literate audience raised on tales as told in such publications as Thomas Bulfinch's The Age of Fable, or Stories of Gods and Heroes (1855).
Frazer offered a modernist approach to discussing religion, treating it dispassionately as a cultural phenomenon rather than from a theological perspective. The influence of The Golden Bough on contemporary European literature and thought was substantial.
