Through Thick and Thin

Gok Wan

With his infectious energy and charisma, Gok Wan has an incredible gift of making women feel more confident within themselves - but it's not until you read his own inspirational story that you find out where he got that gift from.

Gok grew up on a Leicester housing estate, with a loving family who ran a Chinese restaurant. For his parents, food meant love - and Gok was so well loved that by the time he was a teenager he weighed 21 stone. Being Asian and gay as well, Gok felt lonely and out of place. He was an easy target for bullies and suffered terribly at their hands.

In a moment of inspiration, he decided to reinvent himself with his first style makeover and a larger-than-life personality to go with it. But his next move was to lose a devastating ten stone in nine months. In Through Thick and Thin, for the first time, Gok reveals all about that life changing period.

The lessons Gok learnt during this time helped him bounce back to become a stylist to the stars, every woman's best friend and a national treasure. In this intimate memoir Gok tells his full story in his own words. Whether he's recounting the horrors of childhood bullying or riotous anecdotes about his loving family, behind the scenes in the fashion world or TV shows, Gok's voice jumps off the page with all the honesty, wit and warmth we've come to know and love him for.

The Broken Boy

Patrick Cockburn

It is very easy to get polio. Patrick Cockburn was six when he woke up one day in the summer of 1956 with a headache and a sore throat. His parents, Claud and Patricia Cockburn, had recently returned to Ireland, to their house in East Cork, careless of the fact that a polio epidemic had broken out in Cork City. He caught the disease and was taken to the fever hospital. The virus attacks the nerves of the brain and the spinal cord leading to paralysis of the muscles. Patrick could no longer walk.

The Broken Boy is at once a memoir of Patrick Cockburn's own experience of polio, a portrait of his parents, both prominent radicals, and the story of the Cork epidemic, the last great polio epidemic in the world.

The Integrated Health Bible

Mosaraf Ali

While conventional medicine has disease as its focus, integrated medicine concentrates on the powers of the body that promote health. Central to Dr Ali's philosophy is this concept of self-help and the fact that 80 per cent of illness can be cured without drugs. He believes the majority of illnesses are caused by the emotional, psychological and physical strain we put ourselves under. The Integrated Health Bible shows you how to reverse this by helping the body heal itself and to restore vitality and well-being. This is done by following the Lifestyle Programme, which consists of a regimen of diet, exercise, yoga, relaxation and meditation. And for when things go wrong, there is a diagnosis and treatment programme for up to 40 common ailments - including asthma, back problems, infertility, migraine, sinusitis and stress - combining specific treatments (such as homeopathy, acupuncture, ayurveda), exercises and tips for each problem.

He explains to hassled parents how natural sleep rhythms alter over time, what sort of behaviour is natural at various ages, when to use strict discipline, at what age to negotiate instead of dictate, when to turn a deaf ear to playing up and when to take note of the clear signs of illness, depressions, fear or anxiety.
