It's a great read. Stands alone if you've not read the others.

'Well told, personable, fast-paced, and undoubtedly a fascinating read' - Daily Telegraph

Selfish Whining Monkeys - by racist arsehole Rod Liddle

Rod Liddle is a racist arsehole and not deserving of anyone's money.

First time ever cheap since release -

Doctor Sleep (The Shining 2) - by Stephen King (500 pages)

Quote:
  • A powerful sequel to The Shining. King is a very remarkable and singular writer. He can catch dialogue, throw away an observation or mint a simile, sometimes, brilliantly . . . Storytelling is everything - and by golly does he know how to carry the reader. (Observer)
  • King finds a mode of the supernatural that has a melancholic beauty (Guardian, Book of the Week)
  • All the virtues of his best work (Margaret Atwood, New York Times)
  • A gripping, powerful novel, all the more so for being patently heartfelt (Financial Times)
  • It is as addictive as anything he has written: a triumph from the world's finest horror novelist. (Sunday Express)
  • DOCTOR SLEEP is a warm, entertaining novel by a man who is no longer the prisoner of his demons, but knows where to find them when he needs to call on them. (Daily Telegraph)
  • Thirty-six years on from his horror classic, THE SHINING, Stephen King's sequel shows he still has plenty of creative steam. (The Sunday Times)

New month, new sale. These jumped out at me, rarely discounted, now 99p. (Audible version available after purchase +£3).

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup - by John Carreyrou

Quote:
The riveting true story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of Theranos, the multibillion-dollar Silicon Valley biotech startup, by the prize-winning journalist who uncovered the biggest corporate fraud since Enron.
  • ‘Riveting . . . Compelling . . . A blistering critique of Silicon Valley’ Financial Times
  • ‘It’s no wonder Hollywood is turning this book into a movie. I couldn’t put it down.’ Bill Gates
  • ‘unfortunately, it’s all true. You will not be able to put this down.’ Evening Standard ‘Best Tech Books 2018’
  • ‘Gripping . . . a parable, with all the usual, delicious ingredients of human folly: greed, pride, vanity, lust, anger’ Daily Telegraph
  • ‘A tale of corporate fraud and legal browbeating that reads like a crime thriller’ Time, ‘Non-fiction Book of the Year’
  • ‘a testimony to the power of investigative journalism, a beautifully controlled narrative that challenges the gold-rush mentality of Silicon Valley’ Lionel Barber, ‘Books of the Year’, Financial Times
Fascism: A Warning - by Madeleine Albright
Quote:
  • ‘A wise book … such satisfaction that it brings comes from spending time in the company of a sage and admirable person’ -- The Times
  • ‘A passionate cri de coeur … a salutary warning written with passion and the ink-blood of personal experience’ -- Daily Telegraph
  • ‘her way with words is a happy surprise, as is her wisdom about human nature. Free of geopolitical jargon, sprinkled with shrewd observations about the emotions that underpin wicked political decisions … She has professorial fun describing despotic tactics with modern-day echoes … Dismissive of hyperbole, the former secretary of state is still nervy about Donald Trump’ -- Economist
EDIT

First time cheap for both these well-reviewed bios, now 99p -

Bohemian Rhapsody: Bio of Freddie Mercury - by Lesley-Ann Jones

My Life in Football: The Autobiography - by Kevin Keegan

One of the best celeb bios I've read, now down to 99p for the second time. Recommended.

How Not To Be a Boy - by Robert Webb (Mitchell & Webb, Peep Show, etc)

Quote:
  • "Quite simply brilliant. I (genuinely) cried. I (genuinely) laughed out loud. It's profound, touching, personal yet universal . . . I loved it" (J.K. ROWLING)
  • "With enormous poignancy and insight . . . Webb's early portrait of himself as a hapless underdog navigating the boulder-strewn path of masculinity is vividly drawn and very funny . . . Echoes of Adrian Mole" (Guardian)
  • "Frank and compelling . . . Laugh-out-loud funny . . . also, in parts, blink-back-tears sad. Why would I blink back tears rather than give full rein to the emotion? Well, Webb can explain" (Mail on Sunday)
  • "A brilliant telling of a sad story, it is also a manifesto for a change in attitudes . . . I laughed innumerable times and cried twice . . . You should give a copy to any young male you care about *****" (S Magazine, Sunday Express)
  • "A witty, honest coming-of-age story with a subtext that tackles masculinity and manhood. Webb has a storytelling skill many would kill for" (IAN RANKIN)
  • "Funny, poignant, revealing" (Daily Telegraph)

Only the second time at 99p, very well-reviewed, and a bargain read at 875 pages.

The English and their History - by Robert Tombs

Quote:
"history at its best. He gives a fluent, elegant and abundantly energetic narrative from the Bronze Age to the Scottish Referendum of 2014 ... a triumph of precision and candour: I have not read history that is so important and exciting for years." -- Times Literary Supplement (Books of the Year)

Learned, pithy and punchy, with a laudable sense of narrative sweep and a bracing willingness to offer bold judgements, his survey is a tremendous achievement ... a superb feat of compression and analysis." -- Sunday Times
