The shift from the Paleolithic to Neolithic periods represents a watershed moment in human history. While many may consider the humans of both stone ages to be unintelligent barbarians, this brief history proves that the humans of yesteryear were just as smart as we are today. Between 10,000 BC and 2,000 BC, they instituted revolutionary changes in human life. All over the globe, formerly nomadic people began settling into villages, farming, and creating high-tech stone inventions.

The amazing story of TV presenter Louise Minchin's journey from the BBC Breakfast sofa to representing Great Britain at the World Triathlon Championships. This is a warmly written and wonderfully honest adventure through sport that will both entertain and inspire. It started out as a fun BBC Breakfast cycling stunt in 2012 and culminated in Louise Minchin wearing the colours of Team GB at the World Triathlon Championship in 2015.

This is a very interesting book and very well read by Louise. Thoroughly enjoyable apart from occasionally giving me pre-race jitters when all I was doing was sitting on a train listening to her description!

When Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert of Green Gables, Prince Edward Island, send for a boy orphan to help them out at the farm, they are in no way prepared for the error that will change their lives. The mistake takes the shape of Anne Shirley, a redheaded 11-year-old girl who can talk anyone under the table. Fortunately, her sunny nature and quirky imagination quickly win over her reluctant foster parents. Anne's feisty spirit soon draws many friends - and much trouble - her way.

Surviving in the wild takes a great deal of strength. Often faced with frozen tundra, sweltering deserts, humid jungles, perilous mountains and fast-flowing rivers, Megan Hine is no stranger to perilous conditions. Whilst leading expeditions and bushcraft survival courses, and in her work on television shows such as Bear Gryll's Mission Survive and Running Wild, she has explored the corners of the globe in pursuit of adventure.

I was a touch sceptical as to whether I'd enjoy this as the author reads it herself and as she's not a professional performer it's obvious, but i quickly really warmed to her a lot. Her observations and musings are very interesting, and her experiences are fascinating. As I'm a woman who has worked for years in a "man's job" and also a travel and outdoor amateur enthusiast, i found her topics very engaging. I also learnt an awful lot! My husband kept hanging around every time this book was playing unable to tear himself away, which meant i got a lot more assistance with the dishes than usual! 😁 so i guess he gives it the thumbs up too.
