"The race." She said. "India. Were you serious...?" About racing a tuk-tuk one thousand kilometres through India with a woman I'd just met? No, I wasn't serious. "There's a fifty percent chance we'll die. And the flight's in two days. But if you want to, okay..." It was not a reasonable offer. But then she wasn't a reasonable woman. She was certainly unreasonably attractive. I tried not to let that sway me, which was like a hammock deciding a tornado wouldn't sway it. And driving terrified me; I hadn't done it in a decade. But if I could drive in India, I could drive anywhere. If I drive a tuk-tuk, I could drive anything. And if I said yes, I'd get to spend ten days with her. Would that be enough time to find out who she was, what she wanted, and then convince her to abandon that and want me instead? There was only one way to find out...

“I’ve seen an A-list celebrity making love, been spat at, bricked, attacked and had a gun pointed at my head. I’ve been up in a helium balloon and worn a parachute, been down the deepest mine in Europe, covered some riots, avoided several petrol bombs, watched a princess break down and filmed a junkie shooting up. I’ve sat in the Prime Minister’s kitchen and had a look through his wife’s cookbooks, talked to a murderer, a cocaine-fuelled professional footballer and a dodgy copper, and discussed art with a member of the cabinet and helped look for a lost wig for the secretary state for Northern Ireland. “A missile has locked on to the helicopter I’ve been flying in, I’ve watched dead bodies being taken out of a house and told the wife of an ex-president of the USA to eff off. I’ve had a knife pressed against my throat and nearly drowned trying to swim a lake whilst under the influence. I’ve walked an elephant through the town centre, been on the lash with some popstars and passed out on the balcony of a five-star hotel. I’ve been threatened with arrest, got stuck in the mud 400ft down at the bottom of the lake in a submarine, drunk tea with Paul Gascoigne and had a documentary I worked on in Panama before nominated for a BAFTA.” These are just some of Karl Coates’ fascinating stories. A Cameraman’s Tale is a compilation of anecdotes from his life during his time spent as a TV news cameraman, both with the BBC, where he worked for four years, and Sky News, where he has worked for over 20 years. He has travelled the world, met the great and the good – including kings and queens – covered war, death and destruction and seen and experienced life like no other. Karl was at Lockerbie and he covered Princess Diana’s death. He was also in Bosnia, covering part of the war. A decade was spent covering Blair and Mandelson, and he has many stories about both – most unprintable. A Cameraman’s Tale gives a behind-the-scenes insight to the events that the general public see on the news. Karl has lived a life like no other, and his sometimes humorous and often unbelieveable stories create an unmissable collection that will be enjoyed by everyone, including fans of books similar to John Snow’s Shooting History.

Get ahead of emerging markets with top-performer picks for up-and-comers Frontier helps investors successfully navigate markets that are yet to “emerge,” with expert advice on spotting opportunities and minimising risks. With first-hand insights into frontier markets as we travel with big-name fund managers from Mark Mobius to Morgan Stanley, this practical guide ranks countries, stocks and bonds on a five- to ten-year horizon to steer investors toward the most promising destinations. Written in a compelling and accessible travelogue narrative, each chapter covers a specific country, providing invaluable market analysis and a deep understanding of the political, economic, and social background of those most likely to outperform. The key focus is on fresh ideas, based on the assessments from top performing money managers when meeting challenges, hostilities or adversity, and observations after interviewing high-level government officials and executives. With advanced economies shackled by debt and sluggish growth, investors are increasingly turning to emerging markets for better returns. Yet the money managers who came out on top in China, India, and Brazil are now focusing their attention on markets that have not yet emerged. This book applies the perspective of ten of the most successful fund managers in their field, providing an unparalleled guide to assessing investment potential in places better known for conflict, poverty and corruption. · Discover which markets have the best prospects, and which are potential disasters · Analyse individual markets by metrics including macro data, global relative value comparisons of stocks and bonds, buy/ sell triggers, and more · Learn which industries, stocks and bonds should be considered in each market · Examine each country through real-life on-the-ground assessment of corruption, conflict and other risks as well as inspirational breakthroughs that signal opportunities This is a practical manual for all investors - whether students or professionals - wanting to get to know the most promising new markets while avoiding the pitfalls. A must-read for corporate executives seeking global capital, Frontier provides a better understanding of the changing international investment dynamic.

This is the hilarious follow-up to Trading Vincent Crow – in which we were introduced to Vincent, who was determined that he had to trade-up his life every three months for a new and better one. This meant a new job, new girl, new wheels, new pad, new threads – until he reached the top. In D.C.J. Wardle’s new novel, Vincent Crow: Export, we re-visit Vincent – to see that his unique but ad-hoc approach to self-improvement has inspired him to journey east. He has the chance for a completely new beginning as he throws himself in to the unexplored depths of the Asian business world, with support from his unlikely benefactor, Jonathan Fairchild. Inevitably, the cascade of disaster that permeates Vince’s haphazard approach to personal advancement means that this new chapter of his life in a foreign country is anything but straightforward. The challenge of starting from scratch in an exotic land, with no initial contacts or appreciation of the culture and customs, could be overwhelming for the most seasoned of entrepreneurs. However, Vince has the added complication of bringing his nan along for the adventure, which may not be one of the most astute decisions that he has ever made...

Crossing disciplinary and chronological boundaries, Volunteer Tourism: Popular Humanitarianism in Neoliberal Times is the first full-length treatment of volunteer tourism from a longitudinal ethnographic perspective. Volunteer tourism, one of the fastest growing niche tourism markets in the world, is a type of tourism in which tourists pay to participate in conservation, humanitarian or development oriented projects. Volunteer Tourism is a comprehensive and comparative study of the perspectives of Thai host community members, NGO practitioners and international volunteer tourists. The book thus shines an ethnographic lens onto the complexities and contradictions of the volunteer tourism experience in northern Thailand. Drawing on cross-disciplinary perspectives in geography and anthropology as well as development, tourism and cultural studies, Volunteer Tourism illustrates how a focus on sentimentality in the volunteer tourism encounter obscures the structural inequalities on which the experience is based. Such a focus situates volunteer tourism within the commodification and sentimentalization of development and global justice agendas, which hail the new moral consumer and reframe questions of structural inequality as questions of individual morality. As a result, albeit inadvertently, the practice of volunteer tourism serves the continued expansion of the cultural logics and economic practices of neoliberalism.
