In this biography, royal experticholas Davies probes the many sides of Prince William's character - fromhe gilded child who has been given every opportunity in life, to the serious,aring man that Diana had been guiding him towards.

Princess Diana's beautiful face adorned everything from charity campaigns to style magazines, from royal family memorabilia to tabloid newspapers. Through their work, paparazzi photographers Glenn Harvey and Mark Saunders witnessed a side to her personality that the public did not. This collection brings together their most exclusive pictures with the extraordinary stories behind them. There are confrontations, elaborate games of cat and mouse, and hilarious anecdotes within these pages as well as a unique insight into the workings of the paparazzi and the pressures they place upon their subjects. The photographs discussed include Diana sneaking the married Oliver Hoare into Kensington Palace for a secret nightcap and Princess Diana with Will Carling during a secret visit to Twickenham. Mark and Glenn's exploits highlight the tenuous relationship they had with the Princess, often angering her, at other times being manipulated to protect her public image, but throughout, the photographers never lose sight of the respect and high esteem in which they held the Princess.

Essentials of Pharmaceutical Preformulation is a study guide which describes the basic principles of pharmaceutical physicochemical characterisation. Successful preformulation requires knowledge of fundamental molecular concepts (solubility, ionisation, partitioning, hygroscopicity and stability) and macroscopic properties (physical form, such as the crystalline and amorphous states, hydrates, solvates and co-crystals and powder properties), familiarity with the techniques used to measure them and appreciation of their effect on product performance, recognising that often there is a position of compromise to be reached between product stability and bioavailability. This text introduces the b...
