Get what you really want this year with dozens of literary quickies to tantalise and titillate even the most world-weary feminist. Lainey Morse didn't set out to start a fitness craze, but she got one when her yoga-instructor friend asked her if she could hold a yoga class on Lainey's farm. The appeal was immediately apparent, with word spreading quickly and a 2,person waiting list developing almost overnight. Now, Lainey has people travelling from every corner of the globe, from Iceland to Australia, to experience goat yoga where it all began.
For readers who can't make the trip to Lainey's 'No Regrets' farm in Oregon or who don't have goat yoga in their city just yet, this book offers an 'armchair goat yoga experience', complete with adorable photos of Lainey's twelve goats each of which has a big personality and will be profiled in the book and a yoga sequence you can do with or without bovine friends.
So much so, that it's leapt over the Atlantic and onto Countryfile segments and is even a storyline in the Archers. We will learn about epic trips to the bottom of the ocean, to outer space and to the deepest cave on earth "like climbing an inverted Mount Everest" as well as micro-journeys, such as Xavier de Maistre's six-week odyssey around his bedroom and the tale of a Nazi who attempted to walk around the world without setting foot outside of his prison. Some of you may be thinking: Others of you may be thinking: For I once viewed dog owners with much suspicion.
The way they obsessively talk about their dogs often using voices for them to reply; the way they have a light covering of dog hair all over their clothes and sofas; and worse, an alarming comfort and ease around excrement. But I now get why people become so mad about their hounds.
It wasn't instant love I have to admit. Getting a puppy when I was at a low ebb in my life wasn't easy - there was a lot of challenging, what I call, dog administration dog-min , and the humiliating first trip to the vet still haunts me. It's been a bumpy old road, but Peggy has been lovingly by my side through some life-changing moments and I wouldn't have coped without her. Most surprisingly she has taught me a huge amount - not how to get an old pie packet out of a bin and lick it I could already do that , but real lessons about life and love and trust and friendship.
Put aside any doggy reservations and come walkies with Peggy and me Billions of you have watched their videos and millions of you have followed them on social media. So here we go; it's time to back up because YouTube superstars, The Sidemen, are finally here in book form and they're dishing the dirt on each other as well as the YouTube universe.
There's nowhere to hide as KSI, Miniminter, Behzinga, Zerkaa,Vikkstar, Wroetoshaw and Tobjizzle go in hard on their living habits, their football ability, and their dodgy clobber, while also talking Fifa, Vegas and superheroes. They'll also give you their grand house tour, letting you in on a few secrets, before showing you their hall of fame, as well as revealing some of their greatest shames.
Along the way you'll learn how seven of the world's biggest YouTube stars started off with nothing more than a computer console, a PC and a bad haircut before joining forces to crush the internet. And they'll tell you just how they did it because they're nice like that with their ultimate guide to YouTube while also sharing their memories of recording their favourite videos as well as a typical day in the life of The Sidemen.
You'll feel like you're with them every step of the way, smelling the 'sweet' aroma of the boys' favourite dishes in the kitchen, stamping your passport as you follow them on their trips around the world and kicking every ball as the boys gear up for the biggest football match of their lives. It's going to get personal.
It's going to get intense, and JJ is going to have lots of tantrums, so take a moment to prepare yourself, because this is The Sidemen book you've been waiting for! A Pointless History of the World is a complete and meticulously researched series of essays on our rich and glorious past.

I bought this book for my fiance, hoping we could take more control of his anger outbursts more so directed at traffic and when he's tired , but this book is not a self-help guide. It's mainly Giles releasing his anger, and the reader gets to read his opinions on things that annoy or irritate him--writing the book was a self-help guide for the author not the reader.
Coren's manic fury is on display time and again in this collection of his UK newspaper columns the British have much more interesting newspapers than do we Americans. While a few essays are faffs, and a few will only make sense to British audiences due to pop-culture Coren might say "culchah" references, several are justifiably unforgettable. Don't read this book in public; you'll startle your fellow commuters.
We all have pet peeves and you may find something common with Coren like his hate for dog crap and visibl I first saw Giles Coren in UK's The F Word with Gordon Ramsay and stumbling upon this book got me curious. We all have pet peeves and you may find something common with Coren like his hate for dog crap and visible toenails.
However, do not try to read this book in one sitting. Take it just like your serving of fruit.
An apple a day! Not particularly enthused about this, I found the ranting and raving a bit tiring, but then I suppose the title should have warned me The kind of book you read in the toilet, in small doses Mar 07, Stephen rated it really liked it. Quite a mixed bag of short pieces, certainly not to be read in one sitting.
In fact probably best enjoyed if one piece were read, say, each Sunday on a weekly basis Really quite funny and very entertaining to dip into once in a while. Jun 18, Connor rated it it was amazing Shelves: I love Giles Coren.
Not because he's one of my favourite journalists, not because I'm a little suck-up who writes overambitious and untrue reviews about writers' books who I find interesting just to make their day with my wonderful words, not because I'm deluded, but instead because what Coren writes is scripture.
Now I'm not saying I agree with everything he writes I'm lactose intolerant and it gives me absolute hell that I can't eat ice cream without ejecting barbs from my face like a porcu I love Giles Coren. Now I'm not saying I agree with everything he writes I'm lactose intolerant and it gives me absolute hell that I can't eat ice cream without ejecting barbs from my face like a porcupine , but do Christians agree with everything in the Bible? No, because they would all be even more deluded than they are already by succumbing to the evil of creationism.
I don't get up every morning, kissing the photo I have of Giles by my bed, under a pile of used socks, touching his chiseled face with my gloved-hand full of vaseline, singing my praises to ye gods: But that is what makes him so amazing.
His sarcasm and dry-dark humour is so relatable. He finds a way to express our truest, rawest versions of emotions and provocative thoughts on paper. And makes it sound clever. This book I will dub 'The Rant Bible', and although it is basically just a collection of columns, they're Giles' columns, which is what makes the book so successful.
There were many laugh out loud that's LOL for you sophisticated fellows from Eton moments, where I found myself clutching my groin profusely to try and prevent the life process of urination all over the saucepan I was currently having my mid-morning bath in. The fact that they are columns allows the reader to dip in and out of the book; this is an ideal process for reading on public transport, when you're out and about and have a spare 5-hour shit break and have already wiped your arse with this morning's paper, or even if you're plunging into the luxury of a mid-morning bath in a saucepan.
Whether you're a neek, or a geek, this book is guaranteed to make you laugh at yourself, stick your middle finger up at Giles with grinning complacency, and possibly send an angry email in complaint to whoever you think will actually care.

Apr 27, Sofia rated it really liked it Shelves: I have reached the conclusion that Giles Coren is an asshat. Anger Management for Beginners is the kind of books that could vent your anger for you. I can gladly admit that I giggled like a mad person when reading some of the book for example chapter 5:
