Your mother buys you baby clothes. But who can give you the real skinny when you’re pregnant?

Four-time delivery room veteran Vicki Iovine talks to you the way only a best friend can—in the book that will go the whole nine months for every mother-to-be. In this revised and updated edition, get the lowdown on all those little things that are too strange or embarrassing to ask, practical tips, and hilarious takes on everything pregnant. What really happens to your body—from morning sickness and gas to eating everything in sight—and what it’s like to go from being a babe to having one. The Many Moods of Pregnancy—why you’re so irritable/distracted/tired/lightheaded (or at least more than usual). Staying Stylish—You may be pregnant, but you can still be the fashionista you’ve always been (or at least you don’t have to look like a walking beachball)—wearing the hippest designers and proudly showing off your bump. Pregnancy is Down To a Science—from in vitro fertilization to scheduled c-sections, there are so many options, alternatives, and scientific tests to take that being pregnant can be downright confusing! And much more! For a reassuring voice or just a few good belly laughs, turn to this straight-talking guide on what to really expect when you’re expecting.

Amy Winehouse hat in ihrer allzu kurzen Karriere ein unvergleichliches musikalisches Erbe hinterlassen. Mit ihrer Musik berührt die Soul-Diva bis heute Millionen. Ihr Vater Mitch Winehouse gewährt in seinem Erinnerungsbuch einen intimen Einblick in das Leben der berühmten Tochter. Von der Kindheit und Jugend einer talentierten und immer zu Scherzen aufgelegten Amy, über den Aufstieg zum gefeierten Weltstar, bis hin zur fatalen Drogensucht, die ihr letztlich das Leben kostete, stellt Mitch Winehouse das facettenreiche Leben seiner Tochter dar. Als Vater, der erst stolz und später zunehmend besorgt Amys Weg begleitet, gibt er Einblick in seine Gefühlswelt und die Gedanken seiner Tochter. Damit möchte er nicht nur die Fans von Amy Winehouse erreichen, sondern auch Angehörige und Freunde von Drogenabhängigen. Sein Buch ist eine Hommage, die der vielschichtigen und nicht unkomplizierten Persönlichkeit der geliebten Tochter gerecht zu werden versucht, zugleich aber auch eine anschauliche Mahnung vor dem Drogenmißbrauch aus Sicht eines betroffenen Vaters. Das Buch fußt auf dem Tagebuch von Mitch Winehouse, das auch schockierende Details nicht ausspart. Darüber hinaus enthält es bisher unveröffentlichte Fotos aus dem privaten Familienalbum. „Meine Tochter Amy” ist die persönlichste und wahrhaftigste Biografie der Pop-Ikone Amy Winehouse. Seinen Teil des Erlöses aus dem Buch stiftet Mitch Winehouse der „Amy Winehouse Foundation“, die in Amys Namen Kinder und Jugendliche in Notsituationen unterstützt.
