By following Siân's practical and helpful tips you can lead a more environmentally-friendly life.

We are becoming increasingly aware and engaged in environmental issues, but it's not always clear what the solutions are and how we can do our bit. We are ready and willing to make changes to our lifestyles, but often the advice about which are the best ones to make can be confusing.

In this friendly guide you are shown how you can make changes in a positive and practical manner, and with some suggestions easier than others, there's a multitude of ways in which you can live more sustainably. Siân looks at the choices we can all make, helping you to reduce your carbon footprint and the impact of your lifestyle on the planet and change the world without changing your life.

The 50 ways are divided into Plastics, Energy, Cooking and Eating, Travel, In the Garden and Action, and include a range of options, such as buying plastic-free beauty products, upcycling your furniture, cutting down on meat and having greener celebrations.

Why You Like This Photo

Brian Dilg
Authors:
Brian Dilg

What you see is very different from what you think you see... There's a lot going on behind the scenes when you like a photograph. Maybe something is tricking your brain into believing a static image is alive with motion. But how? Or maybe you're being drawn in by a rich, high-contrast subject. But what's so great about really black blacks and really white whites? And if the composition is subverting your expectations, where did those expectations come from in the first place?To answer these questions, international award-winning cinematographer Brian Dilg blends photographic fundamentals like exposure, focus, and composition with the latest developments in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and evolutionary biology, in a thrilling exploration of how a photo works, how your brain perceives it, and why you like the result.

Henry Dimbleby, John Vincent
Authors:
Henry Dimbleby, John Vincent

'The dream is to bring really good food at a good price to as many people as possible. It makes Leon sound like a new religion. If so, it's one that can count our judges as among its growing congregation of worshippers.' - Observer Food Monthly AwardsThe first Leon restaurant, on London's Carnaby Street, opened its doors in July 2004, aiming to change the face of fast food by bringing fresh, wholesome cooking to the high street. Since then Leon has grown to more than 55 restaurants, including in Washington DC. Leon's food message is a simple and honest one that hasn't changed since the opening of that first branch - cook and eat with the best ingredients available and don't forget the naughty bits that are necessary for a fully-rounded life.Leon Naturally Fast Food is a book of two halves. The first is Fast Food, which contains recipes for every occasion that take a maximum of 20 minutes to prepare: from a work day breakfast and children's meals to simple suppers and party food. The second half is Slow Fast Food, which contains meals that can be made in advance when you have the time, to enjoy when you don't. The wide range of recipes will satisfy both the experienced cook and the culinary adventurer in search of inspiration.

Obviously deep down he is yearning to say "Tea, Earl Grey, Hot" to the computer and be rewarded with the perfect refreshment, but for now he's putting his experience into identifying which of the tidal wave of "smart" gadgets are worth having by living the smart home dream in suburban London.
