Description: This is not the time for adultery. Your lover will fail to be impressed,not so much by the face maskand stale musk of sanitizing gel,but your flouting of the rules. At once funny and moving, Safety in Numbers is the new collection from the nation's favourite poet. Traversing new yet timeless terrain with his signature wit and intimacy, Roger Mc Gough brings to life the very strangeness of our times From lost tongues and violins to rising oceans, from adulterers in lockdown to ghosts in line, we may live in dark times and yet find ourselves laughing. From surprising angles and with unexpected voices, Mc Gough, 'a trickster you can trust', reveals the telling moments of our lives. _PRAISE FOR ROGER MCGOUGH'A witty and ingenious chronicler of British life with a deftness and agility that is hard to beat' Poetry Society' The patron saint of poetry' Carol Ann Duffy 'Mc Gough has done for poetry what champagne does for weddings' Time Out.

The Number Bias

Brand: Waterstones

Price: £9.99

 

Description: Even if you don't consider yourself a numbers person, you are a numbers person. The time has come to put numbers in their place. Not high up on a pedestal, or out on the curb, but right where they belong: beside words. It is not an overstatement to say that numbers dictate the way we live our lives. They tell us how we're doing at school, how much we weigh, who might win an election and whether the economy is booming. But numbers aren't as objective as they may seem; behind every number is a story. Yet politicians, businesses and the media often forget this - or use it for their own gain. Sanne Blauw travels the world to unpick our relationship with numbers and demystify our misguided allegiance, from Florence Nightingale using statistics to petition for better conditions during the Crimean War to the manipulation of numbers by the American tobacco industry and the ambiguous figures peddled during the EU referendum. Taking us from the everyday numbers that govern our health and wellbeing to the statistics used to wield enormous power and influence, The Number Bias counsels us to think more wisely.
