Meeting Your Match

 

This dating book for the digital age is a mix of humour, frank advice and real information, with a healthy touch of irreverence. Aimed at 20-30s females, it details the different "personalities" of the various sites so that the reader can make an informed decision about their suitability. Advice is given on how to get the most out of online dating, including suggestions on how to write a compelling profile and interpret the profiles of others, write messages, spot timewasters and weirdos, as well as staying safe on a date night and keeping a sense of humour throughout. Real-life case studies illustrate those online dates that have ended in long-term relationships, giving the reader confidence to continue, as well as those that have been a disaster from the start, as a warning of what situations to avoid.

Unplugged

 

The tools we created to facilitate our lives now control us and our lives. More and more we rely on digital connection to attempt to fulfill our needs, but so many of our human needs cannot be met by a smart phone. Digital technology has enabled us to do things that ten years ago were unthinkable, but instead of freeing us and giving us more spare time to really enjoy life, our computers and smart phones have chained us to them. Skype and Facetime have taken the place of meeting with people; instead of playing with children, we use digital devices to entertain them; smart phone messages of no real importance are read while in the company of others. Through self-help assessments, step-by-step programmes and rebalancing techniques, Unplugged shows you how technology can still play an important role in your life but not at the expense of relationships, and shows how to create a healthy balance between the two.

March, Women, March

Voices of the Women's Movement explores the women's movment in Britain, from the passing of the Marriage and Divorce Act in 1857 to women attaining the vote in 1928.

Published to commemorate the centenary of the death of the suffragette Emily Wilding Davison, who threw herself under King George V's horse during the Derby and thus sustained fatal injuries, this fascinating book uses anecdotes and accounts by both famous and hitherto lesser known suffragettes and suffragists to explore how the voice of women came to be heard throughout the land in the prusuit of equal votes for females.

Using diary extracts and letters, the main protagonists of the women's movement are brought back to life as Lucinda Dickens Hawksley explores how they were portayed in literature and art as well as the media reports of the day.
