  • Call the Midlife!

    Chris Evans

    Product Code: MDLF
    Hardback
    Hand-picked favourites
    Now he's approaching 50, Chris Evans is very much aware he's a prime candidate to be entering a 'midlife crisis'. In this book, he argues that this is completely the wrong term for this time in a man or woman's life and it's really the Golden Age.

    At 50, many people are still capable of physically doing everything they have always wanted to - and sometimes even better than before! Mentally, those approaching their 50s are also more in the know than before, but how do you make the most of this time? Here, Chris talks about taking a year out to plan to make the most of this period and enjoy a successful future.

    Wise and witty, Chris looks at the best ways to rest, the most worthwhile relaxation methods and the sleep and nutrition needed to ensure there's a happy 25 years (at least) ahead.

  • Dadland

    Keggie Carew

    Product Code: CSCTC
    Hardback
    Hand-picked favourites
    Winner of the Costa Biography Award 2016, Keggie Carew's Dadland is a story of war and grief, jealousy and madness and mischief and fierce love.

    A poignant exploration of what becomes of us as we grow old, it is full of Keggie's memories of her rather unorthodox but charming father. As her father Tom begins to lose his memory, Keggie tries to unravel his story but finds out so many surprising secrets.

    She learns that Tom Carew was a maverick, a left-handed stutterer and a law unto himself. He was also part of an elite SEO unit who was parachuted behind enemy lines to raise guerilla resistance in France, Burma and during the Second World War - and that was just the beginning...

    Dadland takes in elements of peace and war and then follows a painful path into dementia. It's a heartbreaking, powerful and perfectly poignant true story about an extraordinary man.
