Never been less than £8 since publication in 2018, now just 99p for the well-reviewed 1000-pager. 4.8/5 (895 votes). Be quick.

Churchill: Walking with Destiny - by Andrew Roberts

Quote:
  • This terrific book, which bursts with character, humour and incident on almost every page ... is undoubtedly the best single-volume life of Churchill ever written (Dominic Sandbrook Sunday Times)
  • It's the sort of biography that, one feels, Churchill himself would have wanted. Colossal, energetic, deeply knowledgeable, properly critical, but also sympathetic and, in places, deliciously funny (Noel Malcolm Sunday Telegraph)
  • An original portrait of an all-too-familiar figure ... He enriches the saga with wonderful examples of Churchill's aristocratic eccentricity, glittering oratory and wit (Piers Brendon Literary Review)
  • Roberts has produced a more complete picture of his subject than any previous biography. His certainly knocks into a cocked hat Boris Johnson's boisterously self-referential effort of a few years ago (Economist)
  • Brilliant, breathtaking, unputdownable ... All Roberts's past life has been but a preparation for this hour and this work, and this brilliant book is a fitting crown to his own career (Michael Gove Evening Standard)

Rarely cheap, highly rated, now just 99p -

Fall Out: A Year of Political Mayhem - by Tim Shipman - 600 pages
This is the unmissable inside story of the most dramatic general election campaign in modern history and Theresa May’s battle for a Brexit deal.
"Shipman (Political Editor of the Sunday Times) - his 'All Out War' was last year’s bestselling guide to the referendum campaign. This sequel takes up where that left off … Shipman’s books are fast becoming classics" -- Gaby Hinsliff, Guardian


I Know This Much Is True: A Novel - by Wally Lamb - 900 pages
Set against the vivid panoply of twentieth-century America and filled with richly drawn, memorable characters, this deeply moving and thoroughly satisfying novel brings to light humanity's deepest needs and fears, our aloneness, our desire for love and acceptance, our struggle to survive at all costs. Joyous, mystical, and exquisitely written, an extraordinary reading experience that will leave no reader untouched.
"Thoughtful . . . heart-wrenching . . . . An exercise in soul-baring storytelling. It's hard to read and to stop reading, and impossible to forget." — USA Today


Seeing Further: The Story of Science and the Royal Society - by Bill Bryson - 400 pages (I've been waiting for this to drop)
The story of science from 1660 to the present - edited and introduced by Bill Bryson, with contributions from Richard Dawkins, Margaret Atwood, Richard Holmes, Martin Rees, Richard Fortey, Steve Jones, James Gleick and Neal Stephenson amongst others.
‘Provocative, admirable and highly readable’ -- Sunday Times
‘This is a book with cerebral riches, heavy with history, to be consumed at leisure…it is also beautifully illustrated’ -- Guardian


I Think You’ll Find It’s a Bit More Complicated Than That - by Ben Goldacre - 500 pages
‘In a busy world where most of us believe what we’re told, the science writer Goldacre looks behind the quackery. He uses close critical appraisal to show that many medical claims are akin to magic and that television presents “real” science as cheap stage effects. And don’t even get him started on bad academia, biased government and credulous media. In short, everything you take at face value is wrong.’ -- The Times
