The hilarious Sunday Times bestseller! Reached number 5 in the paperback non-fiction chart – sadly not number 2!

This is for the multitaskers, the toilet-lovers, the bottom-tooters, the widdlers, the toilet-paper origamists – yes, I’m talking to you! You thought there would never be an exercise regime that you could enjoy in the comfort of the smallest room, but here it is: The SHIIT Workout. It even has pictures and planners to log your workouts.

Getting into shape has never been more fun, as you go through the (bowel) motions from jumping jacksies and push-outs to bottom burpees and skidders.

This is the essential guide to getting fit while you SHIIT.

Just make sure you have plenty of toilet roll handy as it’s going to get messy – you’re going to do more than sweat.

Paperback
The complete autobiography of the great adventurer Sir Francis Chichester, the first and fastest man to singlehandedly circumnavigate the globe.

Aged 18 and with a taste for adventure, Francis Chichester emigrated to New Zealand with ten pounds in his pocket. He tried his hand at a number of ill-fated careers -a boxer, shepherd, lumberjack, and gold prospector, to name a few before returning to England. Having qualified as a pilot, in 1929 he embarked on his most famous solo flight in the de Havilland Gipsy Moth from England to Australia. Shortly afterward, he survived a near-death catastrophe in an attempt to fly solo around the world. Turning to sailing, he won the first single-handed transatlantic yacht race in Gipsy Moth III, despite having been diagnosed with cancer two years previously. In 1967, he became the first person to sail around the world solo from west to east via the great capes. Here, his entire life – including his greatest failures and successes – are told by the man who experienced it all first hand. A foreword from his son, Giles Chichester, is also included.

With passion and wit, Bernard Levin describes his travels on foot through the beautiful countryside of south-eastern France. He follows in the mighty footsteps of the great Carthaginian enemy of Rome, Hannibal, who made the expedition with an army and elephants nearly two millennia before.

From the Camargue via the Rhône Valley, across the Alps and into Italy during August snowstorms, he comments on the social and historical importance of the landscapes he passes through, taking detours to the table of chef Jacques Pic at Valence and the Arles region immortalised by Van Gogh. The journey would not have been complete without enjoying the hospitality of the Moussets – the fifth generation of their family to produce wine at Châteauneuf-du-Pape, before turning eastwards, to face the greater challenge of the Alps.

Have moles always lived in holes?

How much radiation can a pickled onion withstand?

The world is full of really important questions. You will find none of them in this book. What you will find is plenty of nonsense, lots of lies and just enough truth to make you double check the ‘facts’ with a reliable source.

Following the huge success of the New Scientist books Does Anything Eat Wasps? and Why Don’t Penguins’ Feet Freeze?, this is an alternative take on human curiosity. With detailed answers to ridiculous questions, if you’ve learnt absolutely nothing useful by the time you’ve finished this book, at least you’ll be laughing.
