Erno Rubik – the inventor of the Rubik’s Cube – inspires us with what he’s learned in a lifetime of creating, curiosity and discovery.
Erno Rubik was a child when he first became obsessed with puzzles of all kinds. ‘Puzzles’, he writes, ‘bring out important qualities in each of us: concentration, curiosity, a sense of play, the eagerness to discover a solution’. To Rubik puzzles aren’t just games – they’re creativity machines. He encourages us to embrace our inner curiosity and find the puzzles that surround us in our everyday lives. Rubik’s own puzzle, the Cube, went on to be solved by millions worldwide for over forty years, becoming one of the bestselling toys of all time and a global symbol of intelligence and ingenuity.
In CUBED, Rubik covers more than just his journey to inventing his eponymous cube. He makes a case for the importance of being an amateur – as he has always considered himself. He discusses the inevitability of problems during any act of invention. He reveals what it was like to experience the astonishing worldwide success of an object he made purely for his own play. And he offers what he thinks it means to be a true creator (hint: anyone can do it). Steeped in the wisdom and also the humility of a born inventor, CUBED offers a unique look at the imperfect science of creation.
The New York Times bestseller
‘Brimming with life-changing insights’ Susan Cain, author of Quiet
‘Excellent’ Financial Times
Everybody knows that hard work, luck and talent each plays a role in our working lives. In his landmark book, Adam Grant illuminates the importance of a fourth, increasingly critical factor – that the best way to get to the top is to focus on bringing others with you.
Give and Take changes our fundamental understanding of why we succeed, offering a new model for our relationships with colleagues, clients and competitors. Using his own cutting-edge research as a professor at Wharton Business School, as well as success stories from Hollywood to history, Grant shows that nice guys need not finish last. He demonstrates how smart givers avoid becoming doormats, and why this kind of success has the power to transform not just individuals and groups, but entire organisations and communities.
A timely, intelligent and important book for fans of LEAN IN and Caitlin Moran: why do modern mothers allow themselves to suffer from so much guilt?
Mothering skills are now scrutinised, measured, judged, discussed and disapproved of like never before. The bar is set so preposterously high, it’s impossible, at least in the early years, not to feel like a long lost loser: and honestly, mothers only have themselves to blame… Motherly love is ferocious, intense, fathomless, unconditional and absolute. Daisy will add a dusting of reality to the sickly sweet bake-your-own rubbish by covering topics such as breast pumps, other children, sleepovers, swearing (yours and theirs) and contagious diseases.
It’s time to burn the maternity bras and Daisy is the first at the stake to exclaim, ‘Enough! Life is short. Mothers adore their children. But they’re people too. And that is more than just a mother.’
Already an internet phenomenon, and destined to be the ‘little book that could…’ this collection of light-hearted yet landmark insights will make you see the possibilities in your life in a whole new way.
‘You can get through anything life hands you if you stay put in the day you are in and don’t jump ahead.’
When Regina Brett turned fifty, she wrote a column on the fifty lessons life had taught her. She reflected on everything she had learned through becoming a single parent, looking for love in the wrong places, battling cancer and making peace with a difficult childhood.
Here, in the tradition of THE LAST LECTURE, TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE, SIMPLE ABUNDANCE and DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF, Regina takes her fifty lessons and explores them in short essays that are deeply personal. From ‘Don’t take yourself too seriously – nobody else does’ to ‘Life isn’t tied up with a bow, but it’s still a gift’, her warm and wise words will strike a chord with anyone who needs a little help to get back on track and feel good about life.
How to live a better life. One of the most important books on Western philosophy – a powerful and inspirational guide for the complicated world of today
‘Refreshing and restorative’ GUARDIAN
‘An ancient work of spiritual reflection which remains a powerful reminder of how we could live a more dignified life by avoiding deceit, vanity and greed’ OK MAGAZINE
Few ancient works have been as influential as the MEDITATIONS of Marcus Aurelius. Filled with wisdom, practical guidance, and profound understanding of human behaviour, it remains one of the greatest works of spiritual and ethical reflection ever written. Marcus’s insights and advice – on everything from living in the world to coping with adversity and interacting with others – have made the MEDITATIONS required reading for statesmen and philosophers alike, while generations of ordinary readers have responded to the straightforward intimacy of his style.
In Gregory Hays’s translation Marcus’s thoughts speak with a new immediacy. Never before have Marcus’s insights been so directly and powerfully presented.
On Friday 24 June 2022, women’s rights suffered an extraordinary and unprecedented blow. Five US Supreme Court justices made a decision that will impact millions of lives for years to come.
In this gripping blend of reportage and history, journalist Becca Andrews tells the story how we have arrived at this devastating turning point.
NO CHOICE introduces the origin of abortion and its practice in global cultures, before focusing its gaze on the battle that has been waged for the past century across America, shining a light on the eerie ways in which life before Roe will be mirrored in life after. The wealthy and privileged will still have access, low-income people will suffer disproportionately, and pregnancy will be heavily policed.
Taking us to the frontlines – to clinics, courtrooms, local communities, charities – Andrews tells the deeply moving stories of those who have had abortions, and those who have fought – and are fighting – for the right to abortion. There is a glimmer of faint hope, though. As the battle moves to state legislatures around the country, the book profiles the people who are doing ground-breaking, inspiring work to ensure safe, legal access to this fundamental part of healthcare.

‘A persuasive and highly readable account of how rising inequality, and not just absolute poverty, is undermining our politics, social cohesion, long-term prosperity and general well-being‘ Barack Obama
Inequality makes us feel poor and act poor, even when we’re not. It affects our mood, decision-making and even our immune systems. Using groundbreaking research in psychology and neuroscience, Keith Payne explains how inequality shapes our world and influences our thinking, how we perform at work and respond to stress – and what we can do to combat its most insidious effects on our lives.

On return from near-death, Tanya Shadrick vows to stop sleepwalking through life. To take more risks, like the characters in the fairy tales she loved as a small girl, before loss and fear had her retreat into routine and daydreams.
Around the care of young children, she starts to play with the shape and scale of her days: to stray from the path, get lost in the woods, make bargains with strangers.
As she moves beyond her respectable roles as worker, wife and mother in a small town, Tanya learns what it takes – and costs – to break the spell of longing for love, approval, safety, rescue.
