For seven decades Katharine Hepburn played a leading role in the popular culture of the twentieth century - reigning as an admired actress, a beloved movie star, and a treasured icon of the modern American woman. She also remained one of the most private of all the public figures of her time.<BR>In 1983 - at the age of seventy-five, her career cresting - the four-time Academy Award winner opened her door to biographer A. Scott Berg - then thirty-three - and began a special friendship, one that endured to the end of her illustrious life.<BR>From the start, Scott Berg felt that Katharine Hepburn intended his role to be not just that of a friend but also of a chronicler, a confidant who might record for posterity her thoughts and feelings. Over the next twenty years, Kate used their many hours together to reveal all that came to mind, often reflecting on the people and episodes of her past, occasionally on the meaning of life.<BR>Here are the stories from those countless intimate conversations, and much more. In addition to recording heretofore untold biographical details of her entire phenomenal career and her famous relationships with such men as Spencer Tracy and Howard Hughes, Kate Remembered also tells the amusing, often emotional story of one of the most touching friendships in her final years. Scott Berg provides his own memories of Katharine Hepburn offstage - quiet dinners in her town house in New York City, winter swims (she swam, he watched) in the Long Island Sound at Fenwick, her home in Connecticut, weekend visits with family members and dear friends ... even some unusual appearances by the likes of Michael Jackson and Warren Beatty. Finally, Kate Remembered discusses the legendary actress's moving farewell, during which her mighty personality surrendered at last to her failing body - all the while remaining true to her courageous character.

<p>The World of Austin Powers is the ultimate companion for Austin Powers fans. For the first time in our cryogenically altered universe, you will be invited to take a peek into Austin`s World, up-close, behind the scenes and very very personal. From the moment of his inception as an International Man of Mystery, to his flirtation with Felicity Shagwell in The Spy Who Shagged Me, and now getting foxy with Foxxy Cleopatra in the latest film, this is the ultimate guide to the Powers universe. There has never been a man quite like Austin (or Dr Evil, for that matter) and there has never been a book quite like this. The World of Austin Powers will be a visual celebration of all things Powers. The book will contain over 350 exclusive stills and photographs taken from all three films and will feature concept artwork of Austin`s famous gadgets and Shag Pad; cross-sections of Dr Evil`s Underground lair, cutaways of their vehicles and weapons; and not forgetting of course, such memorable characters as Mini-Me, Vanessa Kensington and Fat Bastard. Plus some fantastic dress-up Austin and Felicity paper dolls! The book will tie-in with the release of the third Austin Powers film and following the huge success of The Spy Who Shagged Me, which took four times the original film at the box office, this is likely to be another sure-fire hit. The World of Austin Powers offers a microscopic look at a film phenomenon and will be the most comprehensive guide to Austin Powers yet.</p>

Queen Latifah is a sensation.<p>At nineteen, she was the first female solo rapper to have a major record deal. Four years later she had become a top television actress and movie star. She earned a Grammy, started a record label, and became the president of her own company. Today she is rap music's most enduring female force. <p>But how did Dana Owens, a young girl from Newark, New Jersey, become Queen Latifah and make it to the top of the charts? The most powerful voice in rap has always been quiet about her life. <p>Until now.<p>At once autobiographical and inspirational, <em>Ladies First</em> is the story of a young woman, making tough decisions and terrible mistakes -- about sex and drugs and about who was real and who wasn't -- before she was old enough to drive. It is about the reign of depression that descended on her after her brother's tragic death and how she found a sustaining love in God when it seemed the world was trying to break her. <em>Ladies First</em> is about being confident and sensual in a big, strong body and about blocking out the junk to let in the good. It is about how anyone -- whether from the poorest means or the richest -- can hold her head high in a world full of attitude.<p>In a queen's universe, each experience is a lesson. Keeping it real and making no excuses, Queen Latifah shares her truth about what's important in life. Full of wisdom and revelations, <em>Ladies First</em> will instill in you the same self-esteem, respect, and courage that brought Queen Latifah peace and her independent edge. Allow her to guide you to discover who you are -- inside and out-as you discover who she is.<p><em>Ladies First</em> is one woman's journey to find the riches that were in her life all along, and it is a message of majesty for everyone.With <em>Ladies First,</em> the queen who lives within all of us will rise.
