Download and read online Surviving Michael Winner in PDF and EPUB They say you can tell a lot about a person from how they treat their employees. In the case of Michael Winner, the relationship with his personal assistant, Dinah May, tells us a great deal indeed. In his life, Winner was known publicly as many things: a director, producer and the outspoken food critic who could make or break a restaurant with just a few choice words in his compelling Sunday Times 'Winner's Dinners' column. But behind the opulence and charm, the glamour and the glitz, lies the explosive untold story of fiery outbursts and scorching tirades, brought to life here in vivid colour by the one woman who remained a constant in his life. Impulsive, unpredictable and obsessed with the spotlight, though generous, witty and unshakably loyal - if life alongside Winner was to be at the centre of a storm, on a constant roller coaster, then Dinah May was at its epicentre and holding on for dear life. For thirty years the former Miss Great Britain was by Winner's side, on film sets, studios, abroad with famous friends or at his home, witnessing first-hand the two very different sides of his life, character and temperament. It was with Michael's blessing, and, indeed, encouragement, that she leave nothing out from their story ('Tell them everything') and in this affectionate but candid, no-holds-barred exposé, Dinah certainly doesn't disappoint...

His column remains the most read and most controversial and is a shining star of original comments. For his new book, Winner’s Dinners, Michael Winner has drawn on the reviews he has written for The Sunday Times, updated many of them and included other hotels and restaurants which he has never written about in the paper. Some 400 restaurants and hotels are listed in the United Kingdom and abroad. Written in his own inimitable style and presenting facts on food, service and ambience, always in the outrageously subjective manner that we’ve come to know and love, Winner’s Dinners is not only witty, controversial and bitingly truthful, it will also give any reader the confidence to visit a previously untried restaurant and know that they will enjoy a good meal. ‘Michael Winner is the scourge of sloppy waiters, the man who could explode at the drop of a frozen éclair. The Winner guides are one of the finest pieces of comic writing.’ Victoria Mather Film Director, author, critic and gourmet, Michael Winner is famous for the many films he has directed featuring major Hollywood stars, but also for his acerbic and outspoken Winner’s Dinners column in The Sunday Times, and for his witty esure TV commercials.

Download and read online Winner Take All Politics in PDF and EPUB A groundbreaking work that identifies the real culprit behind one of the great economic crimes of our time— the growing inequality of incomes between the vast majority of Americans and the richest of the rich. We all know that the very rich have gotten a lot richer these past few decades while most Americans haven’t. In fact, the exorbitantly paid have continued to thrive during the current economic crisis, even as the rest of Americans have continued to fall behind. Why do the “haveit- alls” have so much more? And how have they managed to restructure the economy to reap the lion’s share of the gains and shift the costs of their new economic playground downward, tearing new holes in the safety net and saddling all of us with increased debt and risk? Lots of so-called experts claim to have solved this great mystery, but no one has really gotten to the bottom of it—until now. In their lively and provocative Winner-Take-All Politics, renowned political scientists Jacob S. Hacker and Paul Pierson demonstrate convincingly that the usual suspects—foreign trade and financial globalization, technological changes in the workplace, increased education at the top—are largely innocent of the charges against them. Instead, they indict an unlikely suspect and take us on an entertaining tour of the mountain of evidence against the culprit. The guilty party is American politics. Runaway inequality and the present economic crisis reflect what government has done to aid the rich and what it has not done to safeguard the interests of the middle class. The winner-take-all economy is primarily a result of winner-take-all politics. In an innovative historical departure, Hacker and Pierson trace the rise of the winner-take-all economy back to the late 1970s when, under a Democratic president and a Democratic Congress, a major transformation of American politics occurred. With big business and conservative ideologues organizing themselves to undo the regulations and progressive tax policies that had helped ensure a fair distribution of economic rewards, deregulation got under way, taxes were cut for the wealthiest, and business decisively defeated labor in Washington. And this transformation continued under Reagan and the Bushes as well as under Clinton, with both parties catering to the interests of those at the very top. Hacker and Pierson’s gripping narration of the epic battles waged during President Obama’s first two years in office reveals an unpleasant but catalyzing truth: winner-take-all politics, while under challenge, is still very much with us. Winner-Take-All Politics—part revelatory history, part political analysis, part intellectual journey— shows how a political system that traditionally has been responsive to the interests of the middle class has been hijacked by the superrich. In doing so, it not only changes how we think about American politics, but also points the way to rebuilding a democracy that serves the interests of the many rather than just those of the wealthy few.
