Our staff are a pretty disparate bunch, comprising writers, scientists, students, artists, musicians and academics and yet what they all have in common, apart from their knowledge and experience, is their sheer passion for books. They are the ancient mariners of the book world, except that what they want to pass on is their enthusiasm. Take a wander through their favourites and see why they’ve chosen these particular titles. You can refine your search by combining Staff Picks with Categories or other ‘Browse by’ choices.

To Be a Machine CoverJoin journalist Mark O'Connell on this hilarious, philosophical, and very human journey into transhumanism — a movement to augment or replace people with machines — meeting en route the man who runs a cryogenics lab, the biohackers using unlicensed surgery to insert tech into their bodies, and the presidential candidate driving across the States in a giant coffin, accompanied by a man who's saving himself for sexbots. A rare tech book that argues for human beings as more than the data they divulge, O'Connell asks what might really be motivating this desire to become machine — and his scintillating prose will send you hunting down every piece he's ever written.
