World Atlas of Wine 8th Edition

Hugh Johnson, Jancis Robinson
Authors:
Hugh Johnson, Jancis Robinson

Few wine books can be called classic, but the first edition of The World Atlas of Wine made publishing history when it appeared in 1971. It is recognized by critics as the essential and most authoritative wine reference work available. This eighth edition will bring readers, both old and new, up to date with the world of wine. To reflect all the changes in the global wine scene over the past six years, the Atlas has grown in size to 416 pages and 22 new maps have been added to the wealth of superb cartography in the book. The text has been given a complete overhaul to address the topics of most vital interest to today's wine-growers and drinkers. With beautiful photography throughout, Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson, the world's most respected wine-writing duo, have once again joined forces to create a classic that no wine lover can afford to be without."The World Atlas of Wine is the single most important reference book on the shelf of any wine student." - Eric Asimov, New York Times "The most useful single volume on wine ever published... If I owned only one wine book, it would be this one." - Andrew Jefford, Decanter"Like a good bottle of wine, you'll find yourself going back to it again and again... Perfect for anyone who has a thirst for greater wine knowledge." - Edward Deitch, NBC/today.com"The World Atlas of Wine belongs on your shelf... The essential rootstock of any true wine lover's library. A multi-layered snapshot of wine and how it has evolved." - Dave McIntyre, Washington Post

How to be a Gentlewoman

Lotte Jeffs
Authors:
Lotte Jeffs

"This is a brilliant & timely exploration of what it means to be a successful female in the 21st century." Elizabeth DayGentlewoman: A woman who blends old-fashioned values such as courtesy, kindness, and generosity, with a thoroughly modern and open-minded attitude; using her self-confidence to show up, not show off and her optimism to inspire others and build a happier life for herself.Women today are under so much pressure to be everything to everyone: to be cool, smart, fit, thin (but not too thin!), funny (but not bitchy!), a supportive friend, partner and family member. We want to be successful and liked at work, to have opinions about politics, art and literature as well as reality TV and Ariana Grande's love life. It's overwhelming.How to be a Gentlewoman presents an antidote to the multi-directional pressures of 21st century life. It cuts through the white noise and offers a compelling strategy for living well and thriving. The book weaves powerful memoir with practical advice (including mastering a power drill and the importance of making your bed every day) and a psychological deep dive into the importance of knowing and liking oneself. This English gentlewoman will teach you that real power comes from within.Rather than 'killing it', 'slaying in your lane', having to be a 'girl boss' or adopting the art of 'not giving a f**k', this book will teach us that gentleness has too long been underestimated. The true antidote to our brutal and aggressive world is to listen closely, be attuned and rediscover our soft power. It's not she who shouts the loudest who gets heard, it's she who understands the most that holds our attention.Contributors include Paris Lees, Clara Amfo, Elizabeth Day, Gina Martin, Olivia Laing, Romy Madley Croft, Brenna Hassett, Ruby Smith-Merovitz, Silvia Bellezza, Heather Habrilesky, Jodie Harsh, Samantha Clark, Nicky Yates, Sarah Ditty and Lorraine Candy.

Feeling the red, heart-shaped urgency intensify as the years roll on by? Oh hi! You're in the right place.Over half of Brits aged 25-44 are now single. It's become the norm to remain solo until much later in life, given the average marriage ages of 35 (women) and 38 (men). Many of us are choosing never to marry at all. But society, films, song lyrics and our parents are adamant that a happy ending has to be couple-shaped. That we're incomplete without an 'other half'*, like a bisected panto pony.

Feeling haunted by the terms 'spinster' or 'confirmed bachelor.'Catherine Gray took a whole year off dating to find single satisfaction. She lifted the lid on the reasons behind the global single revolution, explored the bizarre ways cultures single-shame, detached from 'all the good ones are gone!' panic and debunked the myth that married people are much happier.Let's start the reverse brainwash, in order to locate - and luxuriate in - single happiness.
