This book will help you redefine what really matters — Stylist
The best book I have read recently . . . Absolutely blinding. Read it. Do it — Liz Jones, Mail on Sunday
Every woman's handbook — Evening Standard
Life-affirming . . . The key practice she advocates is devising for yourself a "f**k budget" . . . It's a beautiful way of streamlining your psyche — Lucy Mangan, Guardian

I love Knight's book before I even start reading . . . the book works a charm

— Sunday Times Magazine
Genius — Cosmopolitan
Her book wooed me with this line: "Hot yoga? Don't give a downard f***!" She has some frank advice . . . Bite me off a piece of that, I think — Style, Sunday Times
Yes, it's a parody of a cult book . . . but it's something more, too. Knight acknowledges the overwhelmingness of the modern world in a different way to many before her — Guardian
Changed my life. To this day, I think about how it schooled me in the fine art of giving less f*cks about people (and party invites) who don't really matter to me, and saving my precious time and energy for those who do. I wasn't alone - the book became an international bestseller — Vogue
My new saviour . . . hilarious — Psychologies
This kind-of-genius parody of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up might actually change your life — Women's Health
Light relief . . . thoroughly modern self-help book — Independent on Sunday
After reading this book cover-to-cover and compiling a list of ten things I don't give a f*** about (Kanye West and exfoliation figured pretty highly), I realise how wonderfully liberating it is to stop apologising for things I'm not sorry about — Red
Unashamedly funny, honest and practical book . . . sounds pretty darn tempting to us . . . And it makes you laugh. Bring it on! — Heat
[A] mix of Oprah Winfrey-style mantras and Amy Schumer-esque obscenities — Elle
Self-help with an edge — Vogue
A funny take on that very popular cleaning up book, but so much more. It's about taking care of yourself and not giving a f*ck what people think of your choices (but without being an a**hole). This book is kicking ass all over bestseller lists. Buy it. You won't be disappointed — Jen Kirkman
This year's must-read [self-help] title — Katie Glass, The Sun
The self-help equivalent of a Weird Al parody song. (That's a compliment.) — Molly Young, The New York Times Book Review
Hilarious and liberating — Fashion Me Now
There are some really genius life lessons to be learnt, such as ditching "bikini body" guilt and embracing the NotSorry Method. — Elle Australia
The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F--k stands out from the self-help pack not only for its frank language and sense of humour, but also because it is about less in a culture of more. — Nicole Elphick, Daily Life
Perfect for any woman who's finding the festive season a bit too much — The Sun
Highly amusing — Mslexia
The missing life manual that everyone should get at birth. It should be required reading in school . . . Sarah Knight is like a modern-day Mary Poppins for mental clutter . . . And her spoonful of sugar is her wicked sense of humour. Every household needs her . . . or at least a copy of her book . . . Outstanding — How to GYST
For practical and sweary self-help advice with no bloody lectures, Sarah Knight is the bollocks — Brigid Moss, The Pool

Staying Alive

Dr Phil Hammond
Authors:
Dr Phil Hammond

NEW UPDATED EDITIONIn this committed and compassionate book, Phil Hammond - a doctor, journalist, campaigner and patient - argues for a bidet revolution in the NHS - from the bottom up, with patients leading the charge. What we can do for ourselves to live well often far outweighs what modern medicine and the NHS can do for us. And when we do need to use the NHS, getting involved, speaking up and sharing our expertise can improve not just our care, but the care of others. We won't always succeed, but we can learn from failure as we try to get the best care possible in our precious and precarious health service. Dr Phil shares his own experiences of working in and investigating the NHS for 30 years, and combines it with the testimony and tactics of inspirational patients and carers. Some have survived and thrived in the NHS, some are planning a gentle death at home, and some have suffered greatly but are determined to improve the NHS so others don't have to.

On Sheep

Axel Lindén
Authors:
Axel Lindén

'Axel Lindén is a shepherd-philosopher with James Herriot's knack for mishap and an almost Chekhovian deadpan humour.' Observer'Endearing and liberating.' Idler Magazine'A sublime little book.' Cotswold LifeWhy do we keep sheep? Alex Lindén ruminates as he watches his sheep ruminating. Naive and inexperienced, he has ditched his doctoral studies in order to move to a fully working farm in the country with his family, where he is tasked with the responsibility of caring for a herd of sheep.Lindén records his new life in his diary, as he tries to manage life on the farm, the ever-escaping sheep and the trials and tribulations that come with being a shepherd - shearing, lambing and confronting the slaughterhouse. As time passes and he gradually settles into the rhythm of shepherding, his naivete fades away and is replaced with stark realisations about what is now his everyday life. He finds himself applying his experiences of animal husbandry to consider our place - as individuals and as a collective organism - in the universe. Is he really the one caring for the sheep, or are they the ones keeping him? Lindén finds both companionship in his flock and a sound, if complex, moral framework for examining the lives we lead.The result is a sensitive and entertaining meditation on the small wonders in our world.Translated by Frank Perry.

Does It Fart?

Dani Rabaiotti, Nick Caruso
Authors:
Dani Rabaiotti, Nick Caruso

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERThe ultimate guide to animal flatulence: the perfect gift for anyone who has ever farted.Dogs do it. Millipedes do it. Dinosaurs did it. You do it: I do it. Octopuses don't (and nor do octopi). Spiders might do it: more research is needed. Birds don't do it, but they could if they wanted to. Herrings do it to communicate with each other. At the beginning of 2017, an innocent question on twitter about snakes formed the hashtag #doesitfart and spread pungently across the internet - and major newspapers - as dozens of experts weighed in on which animals do and don't fart, and if they do, how much, how often, what it's made of, what it smells like, and what it's for. Does it Fart? is the result: the fully authoritative, fully illustrated guide to animal flatulence, covering the habits of 80 animals in more detail than you ever knew you needed. What foods make hyena farts smell especially bad? What is a fossa, and does it fart? Why do clams vomit but not fart? What is a fart, anyway? With contributions from dozens of biologists, Does it Fart? is a book that will allow you to shift the blame onto all kinds of unlikely animals for years to come.

*From the 'anti-guru' author of the smash hit The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k and the New York Times bestseller Get Your Sh*t Together * In The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k, our favourite 'anti-guru' Sarah Knight unleashed the power of saying no. In Get Your Sh*t Together, she prioritised the sh*t you need and want to do so you can achieve your hopes and dreams. Now she's back, doubling down on your happiness with her latest message: You Do You. Being yourself should be the easiest thing in the world. Yet instead of leaning in to who we are, we fight it, listening too closely to what society tells us. You Do You helps you shake off those expectations, say f**k perfect, start looking out for number one and keep on with your badass self. From career and finances to relationships and family, lifestyle and health, Sarah Knight rips up the rulebook. Writing about her mistakes and embarrassments in her own personal quest to 'do me' - because nobody gets everything right all day, every day - Sarah Knight shows why you can and should f**k up and teaches you to let yourself off the hook, bounce back and keep standing tall.What everyone is saying about Sarah Knight:'The anti-guru' Observer'I love Knight' Sunday Times 'Life-affirming' Lucy Mangan, Guardian 'Genius' Vogue
