Running the country is a complex operation and with trust in politicians at an all time low, many of us find ourselves ranting at the telly in frustration. So who better than Haynes to produce a 'workshop manual' that explains in plain English how the system works - a 'nuts and bolts' guide to all the big questions that politicians like to dodge. Split into sections covering economics, politics and society, we show how to strip down the machinery of state and give it a good service. Generously illustrated with cartoons and helpful photos throughout, this Haynes manual explains what's gone wrong, and how or fix it. The authors address difficult issues, like the country's enormous debts and rising levels of inequality, arguing that it's not too late to learn the lessons of the 2007-8 crash, which nearly bankrupted Britain. So if you're fed up with squabbling politicians, this clearly written expert guide, with its focus on debunking technical jargon, makes the subjects of politics and economics accessible to all.

'I write about being a Black American woman, however, I am always talking about what it's like to be a human being. This is how we are, what makes us laugh, and this is how we fall and how we somehow, amazingly, stand up again' Maya Angelou. In this first volume of her seven books of autobiography, Maya Angelou beautifully evokes her childhood with her grandmother in the American south of the 1930s. Loving the world, she also knows its cruelty. As a Black woman she has known discrimination, violence and extreme poverty, but also hope, joy, achievement and celebration. The international classic and bestseller, Maya Angelou's memoir paints a portrait of 'a brilliant writer, a fierce friend and a truly phenomenal woman' - Barack Obama.

When Candice fell pregnant and stepped into the motherhood playing field, she found her experience bore little resemblance to the glossy magazine photos of women in horizontal stripe tops and the pinned discussions on mumsnet about what pushchair to buy. Leafing through the piles of prenatal paraphernalia, she found herself wondering: "Where are all the black mothers?". Candice started blogging about motherhood in 2016 after making the simple but powerful observation that the way motherhood is portrayed in the British media is wholly unrepresentative of our society at large. The result is this thought-provoking, urgent and inspirational guide to life as a black mother. It explores the various stages in between pregnancy and waving your child off at the gates of primary school, while facing hurdles such as white privilege, racial micro-aggression and unconscious bias at every point. Candice does so with her trademark sense of humour and refreshing straight-talking, and the result is a call-to-arms that will allow mums like her to take control, scrapping the parenting rulebook to mother their own way.
