The End of Mr. Y
(Paperback)
Scarlett Thomas
I emerged from this book blinking, stunned and more than a little high on caffeine. Compulsive, thought-provoking and as down-to-earth as a book about time travel can be, the story follows Ariel, a charmingly messed-up PhD student living in a mouse-infested flat on a diet of cigarettes, coffee and cheap wine. When she stumbles upon a semi-mythical - and supposedly cursed ­ book, the fabled existence of which brought her to her studies in the first place, she can’t resist reading it. The End of Mr Y will sweep you into an intense world of 19th century philosophy, thought experiments and dusty libraries, with just a dash of time travel, nail-biting action and of course, romance. If you can start this book and then concentrate on anything else before finishing it then you’re a stronger person than me. - Lisa

(Paperback)

Association football is now a sport and an industry assimilated into every culture on the planet, but it was once a typically Victorian English institution of rules and rectitude.

There is also a chapter on the early years of women's football. - Sean.

On Guerrilla Gardening: A Handbook ...
(Paperback)
Richard Reynolds
In 2008, just after the publication of this wonderful book, I attended a meeting of the Residents’ Society of Mayfair and St James’s. The author, a rather scruffy young Oxford graduate, was the guest speaker and I watched in admiration and disbelief as he managed to convince the audience of the benefits of anarchistic reclamation of urban space via ‘guerrilla gardening’! A novel take on the quintessentially English pastime. - Tristan.

In the Name of Rome: The Men Who Won...
(Paperback)
Adrian Keith Goldsworthy
“Often the same men who commanded the legions in battle dominated the senate in peacetime.” Goldsworthy examines the careers of fifteen leading Roman commanders throughout the life of the Roman Empire. Each chapter considers the achievements of a leading Roman general from the heyday of Republican/Imperial expansion to later defensive battles against encroaching Barbarian nations. The interplay between the political and military spheres is well covered to provide a picture of the “climate” at the time. A highly readable and innovative book by an outstanding historian of ancient Rome. - Sean.

Tricks of the Mind
(Paperback)
Derren Brown
I don’t like Derren Brown. At least, that’s what I thought until I read this book. It is the antithesis of his television ‘magic’ shows, and reveals the incredibly thoughtful, intelligent man behind his carefully-crafted stage persona. Oh, and his tricks for remembering are very useful indeed! - Tristan.
