Make The First Move

Whitney Wolfe Herd

Whitney Wolfe isn't your average twenty-something. At 24 she was a co-founder of one of the world's most successful start-ups, Tinder. By 25, she was at the centre of an excruciatingly public breakup with one of her Tinder colleagues, which soon morphed into an even more excruciatingly public lawsuit, and she thought her life was over.

Two years later, she is the CEO of Bumble - a feminist dating app determined to right the cultural wrongs of other less forward thinking services - with a hive of 10 million registered users who relish her super-smart, take no prisoners approach to life.

On Bumble, women have to make the first move, an attitude and approach to life that Wolfe encourages beyond the app to love, life and work too. In her debut book, Wolfe shares her trade secrets - from how to create a Bumble profile that draws men like bees to honey, to Jedi mind tricks for silencing the insecurities that hold women back.

Make the First Move channels Wolfe's distinct voice and experience, acting as a modern manifesto for taking action in your career, life and love.

At Home with Muhammad Ali

Hana Yasmeen Ali

At Home with Muhammad Ali is an intimate, behind-the-scenes portrait of a legend, a man admired and respected as the greatest sporting icon of our age, written by Ali’s daughter Hana.

As Muhammad Ali approached the end of his astonishing boxing career, he strove to embrace a new purpose and role in life beyond the ring. It was a role that would see him take centre stage as an ambassador for peace and friendship, whilst at the same time attempting to find balance and harmony with his many commitments and responsibilities as a husband, devoted father, son and friend.

In the 1970s Ali began recording a series of audio diaries, mostly in his LA home. Through these private tapes, as well as personal journals, love letters and many never-before-seen photographs, we discover Ali the family man and see how, despite the complexities of his personal life, he went to extraordinary lengths to keep all of his nine children united and to help others – be they family, friend or stranger. We also hear of the everyday adventures the family experienced, with visitors such as Michael Jackson, Clint Eastwood and John Travolta dropping by.

Candid and revealing, At Home with Muhammad Ali is more than Hana’s family memoir. It is a moving and poignant letter of love and affection from a daughter to a father.

Parenting the First Twelve Years

Victoria L. Cooper, Heather Montgomery, Kieron Sheehy

Concrete, research-driven advice on humanity's oldest, hardest job

Why is parenting so fraught and so difficult in today's society? There has never been a time when advice was so readily available, and yet there is also a prevailing sense that parents are getting it wrong. This book examines the arguments and counter-arguments supported by research on how best to parent children, from birth to twelve years. By taking an impartial approach to the evidence and, by discussing case studies from across the world and from a number of academic disciplines, this book is designed to show how good parenting comes in many shapes and forms.

Summer

Karl Ove Knausgaard (and others)

Summer is the fourth volume of the Seasons quartet, a collection of short prose and diaries written by a father for his youngest daughter, with stunning artwork by Anselm Kiefer.

Your voice woke me up around eight this morning, it sounded unusually close, since, as I discovered upon opening my eyes, you were lying in our bed. You smiled at me and began talking. I made coffee and had a smoke in the office before I ate breakfast with you, and when your mother got up, I came in here to write a new piece.

In Summer, Karl Ove Knausgaard writes about long days full of sunlight, eating ice cream with his children, lawn sprinklers and ladybirds. He experiments with the beginnings of a novel and keeps a diary in which the small events of his family’s life are recorded. Against a canvas of memories, longings, and experiences of art and literature, he searches for the meaning of moments as they pass us by.
