‘I’ve lived through ten iOS upgrades on my Mac – and that’s just something I use to muck about on Twitter. Surely capitalism is due an upgrade or two?’ When Caitlin Moran sat down to choose her favourite pieces for her new book she realised that they all seemed to join up. Turns out, it’s the same old problems and the same old ass-hats. Then she thought of the word ‘Moranifesto’, and she knew what she had to do... This is Caitlin’s engaging and amusing rallying call for our times. Combining the best of her recent columns with lots of new writing unique to this book, Caitlin deals with topics as pressing and diverse as 1980s swearing, benefits, boarding schools, and why the internet is like a drunken toddler. And whilst never afraid to address the big issues of the day – such as Benedict Cumberbatch and duffel coats – Caitlin also makes a passionate effort to understand our 21st century society and presents us with her ‘Moranifesto’ for making the world a better place. The polite revolution starts here! Please.

Journalism has never been more vibrant. Set free from the limitations of paper, the multimedia journalist is a creator and packager of video, audio, graphics and archive film, bringing to life exciting stories in a digital world. Yet the power of the written feature remains unchallenged, offering a bright career for the journalist who can capture mood and atmosphere, turn a memorable phrase and coin an evocative headline. In Words That Make Pictures, experienced journalist and editor Peter Grayling Jackson employs a unique hallmarking system of coding to identify the four basic elements of construction common to successful story-telling both online and on paper: V Visuals; I Information; S Sounds; A Action. Analysing the work of more than fifty leading journalists, this practical guide demonstrates how the VISA elements can be most effectively deployed for the written feature to make it every bit as compelling as the multi-stranded offerings online. "Words That Make Pictures reminds us that journalists are first and foremost storytellers. This ground-breaking book makes a compelling case for the vital importance of words." Dr Karen Fowler-Watt, Head of the School of Journalism, English and Communication, Bournemouth University .Peter Grayling Jackson is an experienced journalist and editor and has worked at every level of journalism.

‘I began to pull the threads of my experience back together. Instead of divergent stories about public failure, private torment, and postnatal distress, I started telling myself a united story: the truth, or as close as I could get to it.’ A Rhodes scholar and former Green MP, Holly Walker tells the story of how she became one of New Zealand’s youngest parliamentarians, how motherhood intervened, and how she found solace and solidarity in the writings of women. This short book makes a passionate case for the role of literature in political change and personal resilience, and for the importance of women’s voices in the public sphere.

‘Men are so last century. They seem to have stopped evolving. The Mad Men world is disappearing and the guys are struggling to figure out the altered parameters of manliness.’ Maureen Dowd ‘Do women get anything from men being obsolete?

I won’t let you be you f*****s!’ Caitlin Moran Are Men Obsolete is an essential and entertaining read for anyone interested in what happens next in the great gender discussion. Maureen Dowd, Caitlin Moran, Camille Paglia and Hanna Roisin debate whether modern man is past his sell-by-date, and, if so, what does that mean for women?

Possibly the only drawback about the bestselling How To Be A Woman was that its author, Caitlin Moran, was limited to pretty much one subject: being a woman. In MORANTHOLOGY Caitlin 'gets quite chatty’ about many subjects, including cultural, social and political issues which are usually left to hot-shot wonks and not a woman who sometimes keeps a falafel in her handbag. These other subjects include... Caffeine | Ghostbusters | Being Poor | Twitter | Caravans | Obama | Wales | Paul McCartney | The Welfare State | Sherlock | David Cameron Looking Like Ham | Amy Winehouse | ‘The Big Society’ | Big Hair | Nutter-letters | Michael Jackson's funeral | Failed Nicknames | Wolverhampton | Squirrels’ Testicles | Sexy Tax | Binge-drinking | Chivalry | Rihanna’s Cardigan | Party Bags | Hot People| Transsexuals | The Gay Moon Landings
