    We've all been there... It's getting into the early hours and you've got work in the morning - but you're determined to guide your Altrincham team through to the second round of the FA Cup, no matter what it takes. All you need to do is negotiate a tricky away tie at Macclesfield. Do you ask your star striker to play through the pain barrier or throw in a raw, untried kid from the academy? Welcome to the all-encompassing world of Football Manager.

    One of the most addictive computer games around, Football Manager has been giving fans all over the world the chance to pit their wits against the likes of Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho (and the managers who ply their trade in lower leagues) from the comfort of their armchairs for over 20 years now. This is the book you need if you've found days drifting away as you've been absorbed in the game's all-too-real world.

    From the moment you choose your team and set up your tactics, you're in control of the club's fortunes and this book looks at how you can use real-life examples and advice to implement a winning formula. Journalist and FM obsessive Iain Macintosh asks big-name managers including Roberto Martinez and Harry Redknapp about everything from scouring lower leagues for the next star to improving morale.

    With some colourful language from those who know the game inside out, this guide also has tips and advice on setting up scouting systems, balancing coaching routines with fitness work, and figuring out the perfect winning formula. As it says in its title, this really is the Football Manager bible.

    The late actress Lynda Bellingham provides a poignant, moving and uplifting memoir about her battle with cancer in There's Something I've Been Dying to Tell You.

    Diagnosed in 2013, this book shows how Lynda and her family came to terms with a future they hadn't planned. Brutally honest, the book was written in what was to be Lynda's last few months and is full of the warmth and humour she was so loved for; it shows how she brought light to the darkest of times.

    As well as covering her illness, Lynda also looks back on her extraordinary life in the book. From appearances on Loose Women and Strictly Come Dancing to her role as Helen Herriott in All Creatures Great and Small, as well as her iconic role as the long-suffering OXO Mum, the book also takes a look at her tumultuous private life and search for her birth father - which revealed a family with a history in entertainment...

    Heartbreaking but also heart-warming, this highly emotional book is full of tales of love, loss and laughter and is a fitting, inspiring testament to the courage of a remarkable woman.

    Set in the 17th century, J.D. Davies' Quinton series finds England in an unsettled period of transition. Cromwell is dead and England's king has been restored... yet rumours of treason in the Scottish Isles abound - enter Matthew Quinton, an inexperienced but loyal 22-year-old sea captain.

    Hailing from a family of staunch loyalists, Quinton's first command was lost at sea and he only barely survived. This time around, he is determined to complete his mission with no losses. Vital to this mission is young mariner Kit Farrell, who has promised to teach him how to master the sea in return for Quinton teaching him how to read and write. But the duo face many obstacles as they embark, not least a resentful Cornish crew, a suspicion of murder and a feeling that treason may be closer to home than anyone thought...

    Written by a respected historian, this is a swashbuckling adventure series for fans of Conn Iggulden, Patrick O'Brian and C.S. Forester.

    This collection contains books 1 to 3 in J.D. Davies' Quinton series.
