Stefan Gates on E Numbers
By Stefan Gates
'Stefan Gates on E Numbers' is a myth-busting celebration of 'E's--the additives and preservatives that make up Britain's most feared ingredients. Most of the food we eat has them yet we are hugely suspicious of them and believe that they cause everything from twitchy eyelids to colon cancer. In this book Stefan discusses just how bad our food would taste, how wrong it would look and how potentially lethal it would be if we didn't have E numbers. You may not realize that many of the finest foods on the planet (including caviar, fine hams and wines) rely on E's. And if you think nature is good and Es are bad, you'd be wrong: the natural world is awash with dangerous toxins (apples contain cyanide, potatoes contain toxic solanine), yet E number substances make up 99.99% of every breath you take. Stefan analyzes all 319 Es approved for use in food and also talks about labelling issues (how to understand them), how much you can safely eat and what, if anything, is wrong with cheap food. He also investigates the scare stories, allergies and potential downsides of the multi-billion pound food industry. If you don't like Es you don't have to eat them but you should make that choice based on facs not fear. Without E numbers we would not have supermarkets. Without this book you cannot make an informed decision about what you are buying and eating.

Star Wars Icons: Han Solo
By Gina McIntyre
Smuggler. Rogue. Hero of the Rebellion. Scruffy-looking nerf herder. Han Solo has been called all these things and more since making his debut in the original Star Wars film back in 1977. Four decades later, the irrepressible Solo continues to be one of the most iconic and enduring elements of the saga. Star Wars Icons: Han Solo covers the character's entire journey, from his genesis in George Lucas's first drafts of Star Wars to Harrison Ford's iconic performances in the original three films and The Force Awakens, and the character's rebirth in Solo: A Star Wars Story. The book also takes an in-depth look at Solo's role in the Star Wars universe, through novels, comics, video games, and more, and the indelible impression the character has made on pop culture. Illustrated with a treasure trove of rare and previously unseen imagery, including candid on-set photography and stunning concept art, this deluxe volume also features exclusive new interviews with Harrison Ford, Alden Ehrenreich, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, Peter Mayhew, Ron Howard, J. J. Abrams, Lawrence Kasdan, Jonathan Kasdan, and many more key creatives. Comprehensive and revelatory, this is the definitive book for Han Solo fans across the galaxy.
