Every year, we are given a fixed number of days. Some days pass us by without leaving a trace and some days we remember for ever. Do you remember your first kiss? Or the best meal you ever tasted? Or the smell of freshly cut grass on a perfect summer´s day? When our senses are stimulated, when we harness the power of first experiences, and when we are conscious of our feelings and emotions, we are more likely to hold on to our happy memories. Using research on happiness, Meik Wiking explores how we can learn to create happy memories and be better at holding on to them. Including data and diaries, interviews, global surveys and studies, and real-life behavioural science and happiness experiments, The Art of Making Memories will explore how we can create perfect moments. Moments you will remember for ever. Moments that will shape who we are. ´´Happy memories are essential to our mental health. They strengthen our identity, sense of purpose and relationships. Meik´s new book will change the way you think about happy memories - they´re not something that just happens, but we can actually control them. With Meik´s advice we can learn to create and remember happy moments which are worth remembering for the rest of our lives.´´ Dr Rangan Chatterjee, Number One bestselling author of The 4 Pillar Plan and BBC Breakfast GP

When Zoe falls in love and has her own child, she is determined to be a perfect mother too. But before long, old, deeply buried scars begin to pull Zoe to the edge of an abyss too terrifying to contemplate.

´Hilarious and outrageous´ Chris Evans PRE-ORDER THE FULL-THROTTLE MEMOIR FROM ONE OF THE BIGGEST CHARACTERS IN UK MOTOR RACING My name is Jason Plato. Two-time championship-winning and record-breaking racing driver, television presenter, voiceover artist, pilot, bon viveur, hedonist, robber, former inmate of the Monaco police department and a living, breathing example of what you shouldn´t do if you want to become a professional racing driver. (That´s not some idiotic tabloid claim, by the way. That´s genuinely who I am.) I drink, I smoke, I don´t go to the gym and I rarely stick to the script. Yet I´m still racing, and at the same level I was when I first won a seat with the Williams Touring Car Team over twenty years ago. It´s no coincidence that I´ve had more race wins than Lewis Hamilton, competed in more races than Jenson Button and set the largest number of fastest laps ever. Then again, it´s also no coincidence that I once spent several days in prison in Monaco for stealing a JCB. There is nothing sensible, predictable or considered about me, I´m afraid. This is my story. ´As entertaining as watching him drive, a cracking read!´ Sir Chris Hoy ´Jason Plato is one of the most gifted racing drivers of his generation!´ Damon Hill
For the first time, Andrew Ridgeley - one half of one of the most famous bands in the world - tells the inside story of Wham!, his life-long friendship with George Michael and the formation of a band that changed the shape of the music scene in the early eighties. AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW. 1974, Watford, and two teenagers, Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou and Andrew John Ridgeley, meet for the first time. It isn´t football or fashion or girls that bring them together (actually, girls: yes). Instead, they soon discover that they are both mad about music. Together they set out to follow an impossible dream, rooted in their shared love of records, the artists that made them and the sheer joy of pop. They didn´t know it then but they were taking their first steps towards forming WHAM! - soon to become the biggest band in the world. Now, for the very first time, Andrew Ridgeley tells that story. How he took the new boy at school under his wing, to buy some credit from his dubious teachers, and discovered a soul mate; how, in what seemed like an amazingly short time, he and George found themselves riding an astonishing rollercoaster of success and celebrity that took them all over the world, playing to screaming fans, tens of thousands strong. Together, they made and broke iconic records, struggled to make the right relationships at times, but always stayed true to themselves, despite a superstardom that would have torn apart most bands let alone friendships. WHAM! were the soundtrack to a decade, to a party that for a time seemed as if it would never end. But, of course, it did. In front of tens of thousands of tearful fans at Wembley Stadium in 1986, when George and Andrew played their final concert. Their friendship, however, remained, until the day George Michael died. WHAM! could never have been, if it were not for that chemistry, that kinship, that spark. And no other book will ever take you back to those days, as this one will. Charting the years 1974 to 1986 with humour, love and integrity, this is a once in a lifetime book about a once in a lifetime duo. WHAM!.
