Listened to the audiobook of Elton John's autobiography Me. Elton reads the first and last chapters, so when you get the end you wonder where Elton John went. Top notch showbiz autobiography that doesn't skimp on the dirt, gossip, lows and highs. Covers his childhood, early career, his cocaine habit and then his getting clean.
Well told by the ghostwriter Alexis Petridis, and plenty of outrageous material.
Review, review, review, review.

How to Fight by Thich Nhat Hanh. Very short book by a Buddhist mindfulness guy with techniques for dealing with conflict.
