Book excerpt: Those who don't believe in miracles should take a look at what brought Dakota Johnson from obscurity to the pinnacle of stardom as Anastasia Steele in the motion picture Fifty Shades of Grey. But who is Dakota Johnson? A surprisingly accomplished and driven actress. This is not some celebrity kid given a plum role because of her connections to old-world Hollywood. In The Real Steele: The Unauthorized Biography of Dakota Johnson you’ll see how she went from a life of tranquility and, yes, privilege at the feet of superstar parents Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, to a determination to succeed that has led her down many paths. First there was a career as an international model, then to growing recognition in a string of successful studio and independent films and, finally, to her big break in Fifty Shades of Grey, Johnson has proven a literal force of nature, always moving forward and always using a natural sense of positive energy to dissuade the naysayers who would line up to take her down. Through exclusive interviews with childhood friends and acting coaches, Marc Shapiro has put Johnson's life and times, much like the actress herself, in a straightforward and always enticing biography.

Book excerpt: There's a lot people don't know about John McCain. They know the war hero, the prisoner of war. Those are the things that have made the headlines and the history books. But there is also the John McCain, working statesman, who has spent two terms in the House of Representatives and six terms in the Senate, going about the business of creating bills and fighting the good fight on the Senate floor for the benefit of the people and the country. It is from that McCain that this book takes its cue as it ventures into the specifics of his decades as the ultimate statesman doing the country's business. Written by New York Times Bestselling Author Marc Shapiro, John McCain: A View From The Hill delves into McCain's character, demeanor, his ability to craft bills and legislation that he cares about and ramrod them through the slippery slope of politics and into law. Through extensive research and exclusive one-on-one interviews with McCain's colleagues and foes, award-winning journalists and, in one instance, the observations of a man who had a front row seat for McCain's most challenging political moment, Shapiro probes McCain's ability to get along with Republicans and Democrats alike. The book looks at his uncompromising willingness to fight the presidential powers that be if he did not agree with them, the two rough and tumble presidential campaigns he lived through at a time when politics was entering a particularly ugly phase, and the long simmering feud with current President Donald Trump which finally exploded. If you think you know the life of John McCain, it is time to check your preconceptions. Because John McCain: A View From The Hill is about to take you deep inside a place you've never been before: How a historically significant man and politician has earned his stripes as a statesman for the ages. John McCain knew how to take care of business and this is how he did it.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Mary Tyler Moore was a legendary television and film performer who was much loved and lauded by millions as the personification of sweetness and innocence filtered through a sanitized television world. But as fate would have it, Moore was so much more than that. Coming of age at a time when feminism and women’s rights were on the march across the land, Moore’s roles in The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Dick Van Dyke Show proved a flashpoint and a flag bearing influence to countless women who had decided in Mary Richards there was the possibility of so much more. In You’re Gonna Make It After All: The Life, Times and Influence of Mary Tyler Moore (Riverdale Avenue Books), New York Times Bestselling Author Marc Shapiro digs deep into her much-celebrated and often turbulent life as filtered through the coming of age of women’s rights led by such luminaries as Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan and their triumphs and historical breakthroughs which were often influenced by Moore and her culturally important sitcoms. How the actress reacted to being cast as a feminist icon, her often contrary issues with the women’s movement, how her greatest television hits often brought home important liberal points in a stealth manner and her own political and social values form the backbone of a sociological, political and, yes, traditional celebrity biography that tells more than one expected from a book on somebody the world knows so well. In this thoroughly researched and documented biography, readers will discover… The truth behind the alleged relationship between Mary Tyler Moore and Elvis Presley. What happened on the date between Mary Tyler Moore and Ed Asner Why Mary Tyler Moore’s mother’s alcoholism led to Moore’s physical appearance. How Moore got her revenge on a neighbor who molested her at age six. “Mary Tyler Moore was an important entertainment personality,” author Shapiro states. “But she was also so much deeper than that. Her life and times are already well known. I felt that putting this reluctant feminist in the ring with the coming of equal rights for women would give the picture a different and ultimately insightful twist.”

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “The Tragically Hip… the soundtrack our lives.” – Justin Trudeau On August 20th, 2016 11.7 million Canadians stood transfixed, watching the final concert of The Tragically Hip, and the rest of the world asked, “Who is this band?” New York Times Bestselling pop journalist Marc Shapiro answers that question in the first American book about this Canadian rock band that largely shunned the spotlight but has become the standard bearer of a resurgent sense of Canadian pride and patriotism. What is Hip? The Life And Times Of The Tragically Hip delves deep beneath the surface of this rock and roll story to discover how a band that spent more than three decades in the rock and roll trenches selling millions of albums and opening for the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Who and Led Zeppelin’s Page & Plant, remained almost unknown outside their home country, even as they rose to the level of rock royalty in Canada. What Is Hip: The Life And Times Of The Tragically Hip reveals: • The behind the scenes story of how the band took over The Horseshoe Tavern and made it their own • How a high up political personality was instrumental in landing the band their manager • The day-to-day, often unforgiving, spirit-grinding days of life on the road in Canada • The ins and outs of opening for three of the biggest groups in the history of rock and roll The Tragically Hip are not cartoon rockers. They are real men who live by their creativity and their principles. Through extensive research and a couple of well-placed sources, author Marc Shapiro has put together a complete look at The Tragically Hip’s rise: from their humble Kingston, Ontario roots, to endless tours, to their internal struggles to keep their music fresh, to the fanatic loyalty they fostered in millions of Canadian fans. These fans shed more than a few tears when it was announced that singer Gord Downie had been diagnosed with brain cancer, and that The Hip were about to embark on what might be their final tour. Marc Shapiro is the author of more than 75 books. His most recent releases include Trump This! The Life And Times Of Donald Trump and Hey Joe: The Unauthorized Biography Of A Rock Classic. When he is not working, which is rare, he can usually be found mowing the lawn, taking out the trash and walking the dog.

Book excerpt: The song Hey Joe was a momentary blip on the pop music scene in 1965 courtesy of a Southern California band called The Leaves. It would be their only hit. But over the next 50 plus years, the quirky song about premeditated murder went on to become something special, a musical rite of passage for the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Patti Smith, Led Zeppelin and countless others. It was a perennial that any teen band worth their limited chops coveted and recorded and finally it was an entry in The Guinness Book of World Records when thousands of people got together to play the song as the ultimate jam.

Book excerpt: Who is Donald Trump? Even after a yearlong presidential campaign, and constant media coverage, many Americans don’t know if he’s for real or just a businessman turned showman turned politician who has become President of the United States. His path to the White House, from early childhood through the 2016 campaign and Election are laid bare in Trump This! The Life And Times of Donald Trump: An Unauthorized Biography written by New York Times Bestselling Author Marc Shapiro. Bringing insight into the psychology and motivation of Donald Trump was the equivalent of solving a mystery. What guides Trump to the decisions he makes? Is his personality real or just a caricature driven smokescreen? Is he the living embodiment of a brand or does a heart and soul lurk beneath his flamboyant and often-bullying exterior? In answering those questions many heretofore unknown facts came to life. Trump’s grandfather ran brothels during The Gold Rush years. His father allegedly ran with The Ku Klux Klan. Trump punched out a teacher in the second grade. Trump lived a wild, sexually charged life at Studio 54. The true story of how Trump avoided the draft. The affair that wrecked his first marriage. Why Trump sued a man because he had the same last name. His biggest business successes and failures. If you only discovered Donald Trump with the television show The Apprentice or with his race for President of the United States, the chances are you think you know quite a bit about Donald Trump. But the reality is that, like all larger than life personalities, Trump has cultivated his public image well. He’s been selective in what he’s let out and, when pressed, he’s been quick to deny. Trump This! The Life And Times of Donald Trump: An Unauthorized Biography has dug deep into the truth that is Donald Trump. And this is what we’ve found.

In the case of The Walking Dead superstar Norman Reedus, the question is still very much up in the air. His Daryl Dixon is a very flawed, psychologically scarred character in a zombie-infested world. And there is much in his portrayal that is informed by a real life that is equally flawed and equally scarred. In Norman Reedus: An Unauthorized Biography: True Tales of the Walking Dead’s Zombie Hunter, the first detailed look at Norman Reedus’ life and times, you will get it all. The good, the bad and the ugly. This book chronicles his days as a defiant young man in a fractured but ultimately liberating family life, allegations of physical abuse from Reedus himself, to his struggles in the Los Angeles art underground, alcohol problems that saw him in AA and, for a time, homeless, his breakthrough in acting, modeling and the slow, steady and never boring journey through love, fatherhood and his often truly odd professional choices. You’ll discover why Reedus said thanks but no thanks to an offer to play opposite a reigning superstar, how he became Daryl Dixon and how The Walking Dead changed his life. Oh yes, there is that penchant for roadkill. New York Times Bestselling author Marc Shapiro has dug deep, tracking down people who knew him way back when as well as in the here and now for original interviews. They were willing to talk and they revealed stories about Reedus that even the most fanatic fans won’t know. The author’s research was relentless, digging into deep, dark and obscure corners. Norman Reedus’ world is about real life wrapped around a world of fantasy. Norman Reedus: The Unauthorized Biography: True Tales of the Walking Dead’s Zombie Hunter pulls no punches, tells only the truth and leaves the rest up to the reader. Which ultimately is the way Norman Reedus would want it.
