 We have five more great reads to share with you, all published this month!


First up is Junk DNA, A Journey Through the Dark Matter of the Genome by Nessa Carey. From the author of the acclaimed The Epigenetics Revolution (‘A book that would have had Darwin swooning’ – Guardian) comes another thrilling exploration of the cutting edge of human science. Watch Nessa as she tells us why you need to get to grips with Junk DNA.

Study smarter. Focus better. Achieve more. How to be a Knowledge Ninja will show you how. With Graham Allcott, the author who told us all how to get our inbox down to zero in How to be a Productivity Ninja, you can master the ninja approach to studying.

In Girls Uninterrupted, Tanith Carey lays out the steps for building strong girls in a challenging world. Whether they are praised for being pretty rather than smart, or accused of being ‘bossy’ rather than leaders, teaching girls how to be comfortable with themselves has never been more challenging. Laid out in clear simple steps, Girls Uninterrupted shows the practical strategies you need to create a carefree childhood for your daughters and ultimately help build them into the healthy, resilient women they deserve to be.

Women tell the truth about motherhood in Things I Wish I’d Known. Edited by Victoria Young and featuring a stellar cast of contributions from Cathy Kelly, Adele Parks, Kathy Lette and many more, this is a reassuring, moving and often hilarious collection that will speak to mothers – and mothers-to-be – everywhere.

Also published this month is A King in Hiding. The story of how Fahim, a child refugee, became a world chess champion. This is a very modern fairyale, told through the clear eyes of a child, Fahim’s tale is not only a moving account of the grim realities that underlie a supposedly caring society, but also a heartwarming testimony to a father’s determination, the kindness of strangers, and one small boy’s courageous will to succeed.

All books are available in all good bookshops and as an eBook. Head over to @iconbooks to see how you can win all of our new books this month!
