Book:Flying high, my story, from AirAsia to QPR:2017
Author: Fernandes, Tony
Year 2017
Language: English
Media class: Book
Publisher: Portfolio Penguin
Resource type: Physical
Note: As a boy, Tony Fernandes wanted to be a pilot, a footballer or a racing driver. By 2011 he'd gone one better: founding his own airline and his own formula one team, and becoming Chairman of Queens Park Rangers, helping them reach the Premier League again after a 15-year absence from the top flight. 'Flying High' is the memoir of an exceptional business leader; the man who created Asia's first budget airline, democratising air travel in Asia and building AirAsia into a multi-billion-dollar company in the process.

Talking book - CD:Queens of the conquest:2017
Author: Weir, Alison
Year 2017
Language: English
Media class: Talking book - CD
Publisher: Clipper Audiobooks
Resource type: Physical
Note: The story of England's medieval queens is vivid and stirring, packed with tragedy, high drama and even comedy. It is a chronicle of love, murder, war and betrayal, filled with passion, intrigue and sorrow, peopled by a cast of heroines, villains, stateswomen and lovers. Alison Weir strips away centuries of romantic mythology and prejudice to reveal the lives of England's queens in the century after the Norman Conquest. Beginning with Matilda of Flanders, who supported William the Conqueror in his invasion of England in 1066, and culminating in the turbulent life of the Empress Maud, who claimed to be Queen of England in her own right and fought a bitter war to that end, the five Norman queens emerge as hugely influential and fascinating characters. This work is a tale of interconnected lives and a rich portrait of English history in a time of flux.
