In this nail-biting true story of man versus nature, former Royal Marine commando Dawson, a Guinness World Record holder for ocean rowing and high-seas adventurer, takes on the Atlantic and ultimately the North Pacific. It took Dawson three attempts and a backbreaking voyage of over six months to finally cross the mighty North Pacific for the first time. Dawson and his rowing partner, Chris Martin, spent 189 days, 10 hours and 55 minutes rowing around the clock, facing the destruction of their small boat and near-certain death every mile of the way, before finally reaching the iconic span of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge. Dawson's thrilling account of his epic adventure details how he and Chris propelled their fragile craft stroke by stroke for thousands of miles across some of the most dangerous expanses of ocean, overcoming failure, personal tragedy and everything that nature could throw at him along the way. 1.

In 1964, girls all across the United States filled venues, almost literally screamed their heads off, and fainted en masse. Almost from the second they played the first note, The Beatles would be hit with the resounding screams, which made it impossible for them to even hear themselves sing. When they made their American debut on The Ed Sullivan Show in early 1964, they were greeted by young fans who whipped themselves up into such a frenzy that some of them fainted. Beatlemania had struck North America, creating a musical and pop culture phenomenon unlike anything the world had ever seen. In the middle of it all was Paul McCartney, who joined with close friend and band mate John Lennon to create history's greatest songwriting duo. As the "Cute" Beatle, McCartney was instrumental in creating the soundtrack of the 1960s, while producing some of the world's most timeless classics together with Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. McCartney lacked the controversy of Lennon, the spirituality of Harrison, and the silliness of Starr, but he was unquestionably one of the driving forces behind the Beatles' most productive recording periods, especially on the Beatles' seminal Revolver album. It was also McCartney who tried hardest to keep the Beatles together from 1968-1970, even while his perfectionist attention to detail frequently drove his band mates crazy. Ultimately, it was McCartney who was the first to publicly announce his departure from the Beatles. Sir Paul may have never topped the highs established by the Beatles, but he has gone on to have the longest and most productive solo career of the four. While that was helped in part by the tragic murder of Lennon in 1980, McCartney has nonetheless remained at the forefront of pop culture since 1970, and the Guinness Book of World Records has recognized him as the most successful recording artist of all time. Indeed, McCartney wrote or co-wrote over 30 #1 hits and has sol 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robin McKay. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/034750/bk_acx0_034750_sample.mp3.

He was born on 16 April 1992 to King Patrick David Mathew Kaboyo Olimi III and Queen Best Kemigisa Kaboyo. Three and half years later in 1995, Oyo ascended the throne and succeeded his father to become the 12th ruler of the 180 year old Kingdom of Toro. He is currently the youngest ruling monarch and went down in the Guinness Book of records, taking the place of King Mswati of Swaziland who was crowned at 18 years of age. In pre colonial times, Uganda was made up of Kingdoms and societies headed by chiefs and clan leaders. Whereas most societies in Uganda, like the North and North eastern communities were loosely set up systems led by clan leaders, others like Bunyoro, Buganda, Ankole and Toro were organised Kingdoms. In 1966, political powers of the traditional leaders were abolished in post independent Uganda by the Nationalist movement led by Milton Obote who despised the Kings because of their collaboration with the colonial authorities.
