Using real-life case studies and written with a student-centred approach, this 5th edition provides students with the necessary knowledge and skills to enable them to undertake a piece of business research making the best use of IT where appropriate.

Despite her public profile, she led a surprisingly secret life away from the press. This practical guide allows you to follow her footsteps and is packed with hundreds of photographs showing a London you never knew existed, with such highlights as the school she worked in as a kindergarten teacher, her favorite shops, the pub in which she enjoyed playing the slot machine, and the lake where she dramatically saved a man's life. Everything her fans want to know about her real life in the British capital is revealed for the first time here, with maps and comprehensive directions that readers can follow to take the same routes that she did.
A biography of the second son of Britain's Prince Charles and Princess Diana, third in line to the throne, including his family background, education, and the aftermath of his parents' divorce and mother's death.
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.
