            Stolen Focus: Why You Can't Pay Attention

            Part of the experience of being alive in the twenty-first century is the feeling that your attention span is collapsing, along with those of everyone around you including your children. Why have we lost our ability to focus? What are the causes? And most importantly how do we get... it back? In Lost Focus, internationally bestselling author Johann Hari sets out on a global investigative journey into our shortening attention spans. He tells us what he learned from spending three months off the internet, reveals the inside story of the war to grab our attention that is waged every day, and explores why those prescribing mood stimulants to 10% of children in schools are getting it so wrong. Drawing on more than two hundred interviews with the world's leading experts on attention problems, Lost Focus moves beyond individual solutions towards a collective understanding of a problem facing us all. Only by first solving the attention crisis, Hari argues, can we turn to fixing the issues we care about most and sustain the attention to build a better society.

            Amy and Lan's parents have thrown in their urban lives - and are running a (seemingly) idyllic smallholding in the West Country- scything their own hay, slaughtering their own turkeys (named Vita and Virginia), even starting their own blog Exit, Pursued By a Goat. Amy and Lan and... the other children adore their freedoms and the animals they get to tend (including a calf in their kitchen!) plus the various human waifs and strays that their parents bring into Frith Farm. Told as the seasonal calendar turns, the novel has a magical, Edenic quality as seen through the eyes of the two kids. But the adult characters, whom we also grow to love, start to behave increasingly badly, and the balance of the community is thrown. From early on, it is clear to the reader that paradise will soon be lost, but the fact that Amy and Lan don't realise what is happening only adds to the heartbreaking denouement...

            What if you had to choose between family and the love of your life? Abbey and Money Singh are better known as The Modern Singhs, Kiwi social media celebrities with a rich and tangled love story to tell. Shared through the eyes of this inspiring duo, The Modern Singhs reveals thei...r experiences as migrants to New Zealand as they struggled to find footing in new surroundings. They describe how they met and pursued a relationship that was forbidden by Money's culture, where he felt he had to choose between his family and the love of his life. The couple opens up about the difficult birth of their son, their journeys with mental health, a complicated sense of home, and what it's like to raise bilingual children across three cultures. The rest is history - or at least uploaded to YouTube, where Abbey and Money's joyful outlook and celebration of tradition unites 1.3 million viewers from all over the world, encouraging others to embrace difference with open hearts.

            A gripping and explosive account of Vladimir Putin's tyranny, charting his rise from spy to tsar, exposing the events that led to his invasion of Ukraine and his assault on Europe. In Killer in the Kremlin, award-winning journalist John Sweeney takes readers from the heart of Put...in's Russia to the killing fields of Chechnya, to the embattled cities of an invaded Ukraine. In a disturbing expose of Putin's sinister ambition, Sweeney draws on thirty years of his own reporting - from the Moscow apartment bombings to the atrocities committed by the Russian Army in Chechnya, to the annexation of Crimea and a confrontation with Putin over the shooting down of flight MH17 - to understand the true extent of Putin's long war. Drawing on eyewitness accounts and compelling testimony from those who have suffered at Putin's hand, we see the heroism of the Russian opposition, the bravery of the Ukrainian resistance, and the brutality with which the Kremlin responds to such acts of defiance, assassinating or locking away its critics, and stopping at nothing to achieve its imperialist aims. In the midst of one of the darkest acts of aggression in modern history - Russia's invasion of Ukraine - this book shines a light on Putin's rule and poses urgent questions about how the world must respond.
