Make The First Move

Whitney Wolfe Herd

Whitney Wolfe Herd 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.

Three 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 over 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 that Wolfe Herd encourages beyond the app to work and everyday life. In her debut book, Wolfe Herd shares her trade secrets - including how to be more assertive in your work, how to realise your ambitions, how to build a community of supportive friends and how to find a partner who will value and respect you. Make the First Move channels Wolfe Herd's distinct voice and experience - it's a modern manifesto for taking action in your career, life and love.

Talking to My Daughter

Yanis Varoufakis

‘Why is there so much inequality?’ Xenia asks her father, the world famous economist Yanis Varoufakis.

Drawing on memories of her childhood and a variety of well-known tales – from Oedipus and Faust to Frankenstein and The Matrix – Varoufakis explains everything you need to know in order to understand why economics is the most important drama of our times. In answering his daughter’s deceptively simple questions, Varoufakis disentangles our troubling world with remarkable clarity, while inspiring us to make it a better one.

Hold on to Your Kids

Gabor Maté (and others)

Children take their lead from their friends: being ‘cool’ matters more than anything else. Shaping values, identity and codes of behaviour, peer groups are often far more influential than parents.

But this situation is far from natural, and it can be dangerous – it undermines family cohesion, interferes with healthy development, and fosters a hostile and sexualized youth culture. Children end up becoming conformist, anxious and alienated.

In Hold on to Your Kids, acclaimed physician and bestselling author Gabor Maté joins forces with Gordon Neufeld, a psychologist with a reputation for penetrating to the heart of complex parenting. Together they pinpoint the causes of this breakdown and offer practical advice on how to ‘reattach’ to sons and daughters, establish the hierarchy at home, make children feel safe and understood, and earn back your children's loyalty and love. This updated edition also addresses the unprecedented parenting challenges posed by the rise of digital devices and social media.

By helping to reawaken our instincts, Maté and Neufeld empower parents to be what nature intended: a true source of contact, security and warmth for their children.

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.
