The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet: Lose weight fast and reprogramme your body
The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet: Lose weight fast…
Dr Michael Mosley, author of the bestselling 5:2 Fast Diet, reveals a game-changing approach to one of the greatest silent epidemics of our time - raised blood sugar levels. The food we eat today, high in sugar and easily digestible carbohydrates, is not only making us fat, but is putting us at risk of type 2 diabetes, strokes, dementia, cancer and a lifetime on medication. More than a third of adults in the UK now have raised blood sugar levels and most don't know it. In this timely book, Dr Mosley explains why we pile on dangerous abdominal fat and shows us how to shed it, fast. He demolishes common myths, such as the claim that steady weight loss is always better than rapid weight loss and that those who lose weight rapidly will inevitably put it back on. This is a book not just for those at highest risk but for anyone who has struggled with their weight and wants to regain control of their health. "I feel amazing. I have been given another chance at life." Cassie, 28 - lost 20kg. Average weight loss: 14kg in 8 weeks. Includes a detailed 8-week programme with menu plans.

Prisoners of Geography: Ten Maps That Tell You Everything You Need To Know About Global Politics
Prisoners of Geography: Ten Maps That Tell You…
THE INTERNATIONAL AND SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLERAll leaders are constrained by geography. Their choices are limited by mountains, rivers, seas and concrete. Yes, to follow world events you need to understand people, ideas and movements - but if you don't know geography, you'll never have the full picture.If you've ever wondered why Putin is so obsessed with Crimea, why the USA was destined to become a global superpower, or why China's power base continues to expand ever outwards, the answers are all here.In ten chapters (covering Russia; China; the USA; Latin America; the Middle East; Africa; India and Pakistan; Europe; Japan and Korea; and the Arctic), using maps, essays and occasionally the personal experiences of the widely travelled author, Prisoners of Geography looks at the past, present and future to offer an essential insight into one of the major factors that determines world history.It's time to put the 'geo' back into geopolitics.

Nigel: my family and other dogs
Nigel: my family and other dogs
When Monty Don's golden retriever Nigel became the surprise star of BBC Gardeners' World inspiring huge interest, fan mail and his own social media accounts, Monty Don wanted to explore what makes us connect with animals quite so deeply. In many respects Nigel is a very ordinary dog; charming, handsome and obedient, as so many are. He is also a much loved family pet. He is also a star. By telling Nigel's story, Monty relates his relationships with the other special dogs in his life in a memoir of his dogs past and very much present. Witty, touching and life-affirming, Nigel: My family and other dogs is wonderfully heart-warming. Monty Don is a great writer coming out of the garden and into the hearts and homes of every dog lover in the UK. 'I have always had a dog, or dogs. I cannot imagine life without them. I am just as much a fan of Nigel as any besotted viewer. In the book I explore why we love dogs and what they mean to us emotionally and domestically. I look back on all the dogs in my life - all of which I have loved deeply and which have been an essential part of my life. So, this is the book of Nigel - but also the book of all our dogs in every British family and a celebration of the deep love we feel for them' Monty DonA Sunday Times Best SellerPublisher: Hodder & StoughtonISBN: 9781473641693

Land Rover: The Story of the Car that Conquered the World
Land Rover: The Story of the Car that Conquered…
Sunday Times Bestseller As quintessentially British as a plate of fish and chips or a British Bulldog, the boxy, utilitarian Land Rover Defender has become an iconic part of what it is to be British. It is said that for more than half the world's population, the first car they ever saw was a Land Rover Defender. It mirrors many of our national traits, stiff upper-lipped and slightly eccentric. The car has remained relatively unchanged for nearly seven decades and has spawned an industry that includes dozens of publications, car shows, clubs, associations and even model car collectors who dedicate their lives to the Land Rover. To understand this national love affair, Ben has travelled the length of the British Isles in a Defender, spending time with fellow Land Rover enthusiasts: from visiting Colonel Blashford-Snell, who crossed the jungles of the Darien Gap, to patrolling the streets of Belfast with the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI). Ben has met folk who have converted their beloved Defenders into everything from hearses and coffee shops to works of art and fire trucks. He has travelled from the Red Wharf in Anglesey, Wales onto the Western Isles of Scotland and Islay, the island used as a testing ground by Spencer Wilks in 1947 to put several of the early Series Land Rover prototypes through their paces. After 67 years and 2 million vehicles the Land Rover Defender has ceased production, and this book is a fitting tribute to this most British institution which has stood as a beacon of durability and Britishness across the world. Every Land Rover has its own unique story to tell. This is the story of the world's favourite car.

If you have raised blood sugar levels or type 2 diabetes and are interested in trying to regain full health, this is the book for you." -- Dr Roy Taylor, Professor of Medicine and Metabolism, University of Newcastle"The 8-week Blood Sugar Diet is the first common sense book on managing your diabetes that offers clear up to date advice on both exercise and diet. This book has a striking and persuasive message: we are in control of own health." -- Dr Jamie Timmons, Professor of Precision Medicine, King's College, London"As a GP I have been recommending a dietary approach similar to one described in this book for some time. As a result many of my patients have lost weight, become healthier, and we now spend ?27,000 less per year on drugs for diabetes than the average GP practice in our area." -- Dr David Unwin, GP and winner of the NHS 'Innovator of the year' Award for the North West"The diet cleaned out my liver and pancreas. It's not so easy for me to gain weight any more. It's as though my body is working metabolically like a young man's again, and I like the person I see in the mirror now." -- Carlos, 55, former diabetic"He is totally different now, says Anthony, son of Geoff, 50, former diabetic. His aura, the way he projects himself; he has self-belief. He believes he can do things.""I feel amazing. I have been given another chance at life, I feel in control for the first time."--Cassie, 28, former diabetic"The revelatory claim running throughout this book that type 2 diabetes can not only be prevented but actually reversed is one of the most heartening messages I have have read in a long time. In his clear, un-sensationalist prose, Michael Mosley takes us through the science, theory and evidence behind this claim. If the changes in our diet and lifestyles suggested in this important book were to be taken up I believe it could affect a dramatic change in the nation’s health and well-being." --Jane Asher, actress, author and President of Arthritis Care

A Brief History Of Time: From Big Bang To Black…
Brief History Of TimeAmazon Review:Stephen Hawking, one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists in history, wrote the modern classic A Brief History of Time to help non-scientists understand fundamental questions of physics and our existence: where did the universe come from? How and why did it begin? Will it come to an end, and if so, how? Hawking attempts to deal with these questions (and where we might look for answers) using a minimum of technical jargon. Among the topics gracefully covered are gravity, black holes, the Big Bang, the nature of time and physicists' search for a grand unifying theory. This is deep science; the concepts are so vast (or so tiny) that they cause mental vertigo while reading, and one can't help but marvel at Hawking's ability to synthesize this difficult subject for people not used to thinking about things like alternate dimensions. The journey is certainly worth taking for as Hawking says, the reward of understanding the universe may be a glimpse of "the mind of God". --Therese Littleton, Amazon.com

War is obsolete. You are more likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflict. Famine is disappearing. You are at more risk of obesity than starvation. Death is just a technical problem.

The Dance of Time: The Origins of the Calendar
A journey through history and legends, myths and superstitions, religion and astronomy—and how they’ve shaped our views of time itself.   Three streams of history created our Western calendar—first from the Sumerians, then from the Celtic and Germanic peoples in the North, and finally from Palestine with the rise of Christianity. This compendium reveals fascinating facts about our attempts to measure and define time and how the days and months came to be, including:The ancient Romans left sixty days of winter out of their calendar, considering these two months a dead time of lurking terror and therefore better left unnamedThe Romans had a horror of even numbers, hence the tendency for months with an odd number of daysRobed and bearded Celtic druids stand behind our New Year’s figure of Father TimeThursday is Thor’s day, and Friday belongs to his faithful wife, Freya, queen of the Norse godsThe name Easter may derive from the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring, Eostre—whose consort was a hare Michael Judge teases out the contributions of these cultures to the shape of the calendar, to the days and holidays, and to associated lore. In them, he finds glimpses of a way of seeing before the mechanical time of clocks, when the rhythms of man and woman matched those of earth and sky.  A journey through history and legends, myths and superstitions, religion and astronomy—and how they’ve shaped our views of time itself.   Three streams of history created our Western calendar—first from the Sumerians, then from the Celtic and Germanic peoples in the North, and finally from Palestine with the rise of Christianity.

This book has a striking and persuasive message: we are in control of own health." -- Dr Jamie Timmons, Professor of Precision Medicine, King's College, London"As a GP I have been recommending a dietary approach similar to one described in this book for some time. As a result many of my patients have lost weight, become healthier, and we now spend ?27,000 less per year on drugs for diabetes than the average GP practice in our area." -- Dr David Unwin, GP and winner of the NHS 'Innovator of the year' Award for the North West"The diet cleaned out my liver and pancreas. It's not so easy for me to gain weight any more. It's as though my body is working metabolically like a young man's again, and I like the person I see in the mirror now." -- Carlos, 55, former diabetic"He is totally different now, says Anthony, son of Geoff, 50, former diabetic. His aura, the way he projects himself; he has self-belief. He believes he can do things.""I feel amazing. I have been given another chance at life, I feel in control for the first time."--Cassie, 28, former diabetic"The revelatory claim running throughout this book that type 2 diabetes can not only be prevented but actually reversed is one of the most heartening messages I have have read in a long time. In his clear, un-sensationalist prose, Michael Mosley takes us through the science, theory and evidence behind this claim. If the changes in our diet and lifestyles suggested in this important book were to be taken up I believe it could affect a dramatic change in the nation’s health and well-being." --Jane Asher, actress, author and President of Arthritis Care

The Dance of Time: The Origins of the Calendar
The Dance of Time: The Origins of the Calendar
A journey through history and legends, myths and superstitions, religion and astronomy—and how they’ve shaped our views of time itself.   Three streams of history created our Western calendar—first from the Sumerians, then from the Celtic and Germanic peoples in the North, and finally from Palestine with the rise of Christianity. This compendium reveals fascinating facts about our attempts to measure and define time and how the days and months came to be, including:The ancient Romans left sixty days of winter out of their calendar, considering these two months a dead time of lurking terror and therefore better left unnamedThe Romans had a horror of even numbers, hence the tendency for months with an odd number of daysRobed and bearded Celtic druids stand behind our New Year’s figure of Father TimeThursday is Thor’s day, and Friday belongs to his faithful wife, Freya, queen of the Norse godsThe name Easter may derive from the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring, Eostre—whose consort was a hare Michael Judge teases out the contributions of these cultures to the shape of the calendar, to the days and holidays, and to associated lore. In them, he finds glimpses of a way of seeing before the mechanical time of clocks, when the rhythms of man and woman matched those of earth and sky.  A journey through history and legends, myths and superstitions, religion and astronomy—and how they’ve shaped our views of time itself.   Three streams of history created our Western calendar—first from the Sumerians, then from the Celtic and Germanic peoples in the North, and finally from Palestine with the rise of Christianity.

Nigel: my family and other dogs
Nigel: my family and other dogs
When Monty Don's golden retriever Nigel became the surprise star of BBC Gardeners' World inspiring huge interest, fan mail and his own social media accounts, Monty Don wanted to explore what makes us connect with animals quite so deeply. In many respects Nigel is a very ordinary dog; charming, handsome and obedient, as so many are. He is also a much loved family pet. He is also a star. By telling Nigel's story, Monty relates his relationships with the other special dogs in his life in a memoir of his dogs past and very much present. Witty, touching and life-affirming, Nigel: My family and other dogs is wonderfully heart-warming. Monty Don is a great writer coming out of the garden and into the hearts and homes of every dog lover in the UK. 'I have always had a dog, or dogs. I cannot imagine life without them. I am just as much a fan of Nigel as any besotted viewer. In the book I explore why we love dogs and what they mean to us emotionally and domestically. I look back on all the dogs in my life - all of which I have loved deeply and which have been an essential part of my life. So, this is the book of Nigel - but also the book of all our dogs in every British family and a celebration of the deep love we feel for them' Monty DonA Sunday Times Best SellerPublisher: Hodder & StoughtonISBN: 9781473641693

Peggy and Me
Peggy and Me
The hilarious and heartwarming memoir of Miranda and her life changing dog, the inimitable and most lovable Peggy. Hello dear book browser and welcome to Peggy and Me. The story of my life since getting a beautiful Shih-Tzu Bichon Frise cross puppy (I call the breed a Shitty Frise - fun) in the form of Peggy. Some of you may be thinking: "a book about a dog, how totally brilliant, I need hear no more, I'm sold." In which case we should be best friends and go out to tea together, every day. Others of you may be thinking: "a book about a dog, how totally mad, she must have officially lost it." In which case I completely understand. For I once viewed dog owners with much suspicion. The way they obsessively talk about their dogs often using voices for them to reply; the way they have a light covering of dog hair all over their clothes and sofas; and worse, an alarming comfort and ease around excrement. But I now get why people become so mad about their hounds. It wasn't instant love I have to admit. Getting a puppy when I was at a low ebb in my life wasn't easy - there was a lot of challenging, what I call, dog administration (dog-min), and the humiliating first trip to the vet still haunts me.It's been a bumpy old road, but Peggy has been lovingly by my side through some life changing moments and I wouldn't have coped without her. Most surprisingly she has taught me a huge amount - not how to get an old pie packet out of a bin and lick it (I could already do that), but real lessons about life and love and trust and friendship. Put aside any doggy reservations and come walkies with Peggy and me...Publisher: Hodder & StoughtonISBN: 9781444769128
