“I was so anxious to lose my virginity that I never thought of all the consequences that came with it.” In this titillating personal account, Damaged Goods, author O. Persaud sums up the sultry sex life of his main character, Chris, from his first intimate experience to finding a woman that he truly loves. The "every man for himself" mentality has corrupted Chris' ideals, whether regarding friends, family, material possessions, or women. When he makes a move, he never takes other people's feelings into consideration. Therefore, he can never stay true to anyone to whom he supposedly commits. Chris believes that others are only here in this world for his benefit, and he is willing to deny peoples' needs-including his own-to obtain what he wants. Nowhere in his life is this mentality more evident than in his romantic involvements. Chris soon finds himself questioning his behavior: "Why do I cheat? And how did I become the unfaithful man that I am today?" These questions serve as the basis for his next quest in life, one that may lead to true love-if he can only find the answers. Damaged Goods provides a fresh, interesting look into the life of a young black male and his search for the nature of love.

On the 26th of March 2005, Doctor Who returned to our screens after an absence of 16 years, with a new Doctor, a new assistant and thirteen thrilling new adventures. This book collects together the entire shooting scripts for the first series. Seven of the scripts are by Russell T Davies, with the remainder by Steven Moffat, Robert Shearman, Paul Cornell and The League of Gentlemen's Mark Gatiss. Each story contains the essential ingredients of time travel, adventure, and the mixing of the ordinary with the fantastical that have always characterized the series, while at the same time being thoroughly in tune with contemporary culture and society. This is a Doctor Who for an age defined by irony, technology and celebrity, and the shadow cast by 9/11. It is also cinematic, with fast cutting and special effects that will satisfy viewers brought up on contemporary film and television sci-fi. The shooting scripts give a unique insight into how the first series was visualized and acted. Alongside the exciting action sequences and dialogue are hints about the characters' emotions, and evocations of the settings in which their adventures take place. Pacey, atmospheric and thoroughly absorbing, these scripts practically read like novels. Each of the scripts is illustrated with full-colour screen grabs, ensuring the book appeals to broad audience. Introductions by the writers explain the inspirations for the first series and the fascinating process of creating a Doctor Who script. As the one book that ties directly into the first series, this is a must-have self-purchase or gift for all Doctor Who fans.

And he also knows that if he doesn't do something very clever very soon, matters will get very, very out of hand"--
