    Six women who have lived the last hundred years of British history reveal how their lives have changed since the suffragettes won the right for women (over 30 and who met certain property qualifications) to vote in 1918.

    Hailing from locations spread across Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland, Helena, Olive, Edna, Joyce, Ann and Phyllis - The Century Girls - explain what they saw, how they were treated, who they loved, what they did and where they are now. They look back at times as housewives and working and describe the surroundings they grew up in.

    This is a personal account of how women gradually began to build independent lives for themselves in post-Great War Britain and what their day-to-day lives were like and how they changed throughout the following decades.

    Our brains are far stranger than we think. We take it for granted that we can remember, feel emotions, navigate and empathise with others but what if these abilities were dramatically enhanced or weakened overnight?

    Helen Thomson is an award-winning science writer who has spent years travelling the world to track down incredibly rare brain disorders. In this book, she tells the story of nine extraordinary people including a man who thinks he's a tiger and a doctor who feels the pain of others just by looking at them.

    This book delves into the histories of these conditions and explains how they affect the people's lives in unexpected, brilliant and alarming ways. Helen also looks at the power of the human brain and how it affects our consciousness, our emotions and our creativity.

    From learning how to hallucinate and make yourself happier in only a split-second to avoiding getting lost, seeing more of reality and confirming you're alive, this is a fascinating philosophy book that encourages you to think the unthinkable. It breaks down the science of the human mind into manageable New Scientist-style chunks and combines the witty observational style of Jon Ronson with the humanity and intelligence of Oliver Sacks.
