At age ten, Tatum O’Neal became the youngest Oscar winner in history for her performance in the film classic Paper Moon. As the sidekick to her father, Ryan O’Neal, she became a fixture at the most glamorous Hollywood parties and counted celebrities among her childhood friends.
But behind the glittering facade of Tatum’s life lay heartbreak: abandonment, abuse, and neglect. Her alcoholic mother drifted in and out of her life. Her father grew increasingly punishing and distant, especially after moving in with his longtime love, Farrah Fawcett. By her late teens, Tatum had begun a perilous slide into self-destruction.
Then Tatum met the man who would become her husband: the explosive tennis great John McEnroe. They had three children in quick succession, followed by one of the messiest high-profile divorces on record. With the collapse of her marriage and no real family to turn to, Tatum succumbed to the demons of her past that would nearly kill her.
Now she has emerged clean and sober, rediscovering herself as an actress, mother, and wonderfully vibrant woman in what she considers the prime of her life.
Her incredible personal tale is an amazing book you are sure to enjoy.

Pink Floyd is one of the most creative, successful and enduring bands of all time. Nick Mason’s Inside Out marks the first time that a Pink Floyd member has set down his Individual version of their story. “Of course, ” he says, “everyone has divergent views of what actually happened. I’ve tried to be honest about disasters and triumphs, and not to take all the credit – though I’ve been delighted to share out any blame.”
Inside Out normally sells for $15.75 in stores, but for a limited time you can get your very own downloadable audiobook copy of this insightful title for just $11.30. That’s an incredible saving – over 65% discount!

As the only constant member throughout the 40 years of the Floyd’s existence, Nick has been able to observe every phase of their career from his drum stool, including their time as the darlings of London’s late-1960s underground; the deterioration and departure of Syd Barrett; the huge worldwide success of The Dark Side Of The Moon , one of the bestselling albums ever; the rift with Roger Waters ; and the subsequent decision by Nick and David Gilmour to put their reputations on the line and continue as Pink Floyd .
On this audio edition of Inside Out , Nick Mason reads his personal history of Pink Floyd – each chapter linked by his selection of the sound effects that have been such a part of their distinctive sound. In addition to his own memories and research, his account has drawn on the thoughts and reminiscences of key players in the Floyd’s saga, which he has updated to include the band’s reunion with Roger Waters at the Live 8 concert in Hyde Park in July 2005. A 32-page booklet contains many rare photographs from his own archive.
‘Anything but a hymn of praise to the mighty Floyd. Mason’s drummer’s tale is unstintingly and amusingly disrespectful about the band’ – The Sunday Times
‘As charmingly English as Pimm’s and heatstroke on a balmy summer’s day’ – Q magazine
‘Rock’s little drummer boy grows up into a sex cymbal. With a wit drier than an AA clinic, and a charm more disarming than a UN peace-keeping force, Nick Mason gives us a literary drum solo par excellence’ – Kathy Lette
