Welcome to 2013

Happy New Year!

This January, we at Short Books are all about knowing what you’re getting into…

Take our number one bestselling The Fast Diet by Michael Mosley and Mimi Spencer, the simple dietary secret of intermittent fasting: the authors are championing the groundbreaking 5 day / 2 day method of weight-loss not only because of its effects on the waistline, but because of the long-term health benefits.  Take a look at the book to get the full scientific picture, and to understand how and why your body reacts to the diet.

George Cooper offers a holistic guide to nutrition, enabling you to understand how your digestive system works, how each food type effects it, and what other factors you need to consider, such as the climate and your emotions.  Find out what works for you and why, and then you can Be Your Own Nutritionist.

But there is always an exception that proves the rule.  Jessica Fox’s memoir Three Things You Need to Know About Rockets tells of the author’s leap into the unknown – having no idea what she is getting into, but giving it a shot anyway.  Jessica trades a life working for NASA in Hollywood for following a dream of working in a second-hand bookshop in Scotland.  Her trip to Wigtown leads to a surprise romance, and is the perfect antidote to January gloom.

Get bookshopping, folks!
