Hans Rosling – Factfulness

Sunday Times number one bestseller, New York Times bestseller, Bill Gates summer read, Barack Obama summer read

One of the most important books I’ve ever read – an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world.
Bill Gates

Hans Rosling tells the story of ‘the secret silent miracle of human progress’ as only he can. But Factfulness does much more than that. It also explains why progress is so often secret and silent and teaches readers how to see it clearly.  Melinda Gates

Michael Caine – Blowing the Bloody Doors Off: And Other Lessons in Life

Sunday Times bestseller

Caine acknowledges ghostwriter Deborah Crewe in the acknowledgments; “without her help,” he writes, “I couldn’t have written the bloody book.” Nonetheless [it] feels like talking to its author; it’s like a down-to-earth, kindhearted ramble from your nice British great-uncle, who’s led a fascinating and glamorous life but never forgot his humble roots … full of irresistibly tossed-off moments
Moria Macdonald, The Seattle Times

Caine’s writing – funny, warm, down-to-earth – will captivate fans and casual readers alike. Publishers Weekly

As you turn the pages of this book you can almost hear his distinctive voice, chuckling over the anecdotes. Rachel Sylvester, The Times

This book is like a fine old wine. It is to be savoured … Whoever edited it did a fine job as the whole book is authentically Ken. His voice rings through every paragraph, sentence and word. Iain Dale

… [a] well-told, humane and entertaining tale of high office.  Anne McElvoy, The Sunday Times

Anna Birch – Call The Vet

… a lovely read that had me laughing one minute and crying the next.  thebookbag.co.uk

Tracy Mackness – Jail Bird

… A brutally honest, up front, heart breaking and heart warming life story.  Amazon Reviewer

… This is a book that really makes you sit up and take notice … Written as Tracy would be telling it to you if you were sitting opposite her in a pub and she was recounting it to you, she draws you in, shakes you up and then puts you back down again.  Amazon Reviewer

… Wow. What a story! What a character! Tracy Mackness saw so much of the underworld during her time as a petty (then not-so-petty criminal) in 1980s and 1990s Essex and during her long stints in prison. She is a true survivor and tells her tale of bad times then transformation to successful business woman incredibly well. A great read.  Amazon Reviewer
