To the aficionado, men's shoes are cult objects. No garment available for men is similarly coveted, lovingly cared for, and comparatively dearly bought by its devotees. But even committed shoe fans often lack the broad knowledge. Consequently, a book about shoes should not only deal with the aesthetic side but also offer a wealth of information - on materials and styles, brands and manufacturers, models and their makers. Bernhard Roetzel's A Guy's Guide to Shoes conveys competence and knowledge, discusses trends and history, and depicts fashion and style.

More and more of us are turning to the great outdoors when seeking peace, balance, and a touch of adventure to offset our daily grind. The Outsiders showcases the outlook and passions of the new creative scene that has emerged and draws inspiration from this development along with its original products, brands, and ideas. The book captures the refreshing and evolving ethos of today's smartly successful outdoor and lifestyle entrepreneurs and features interviews with key players from across the outdoor sector. Catering to modern globetrotters, these innovators are rethinking the ways in which the fundamental challenges posed by the wilderness meet the aesthetic needs of design-literate adventurers. The results are often radical, but always likeable with the occasional romantic or ironic wink.

Even before they experience puberty and young love themselves, girls and boys have many questions about sex and sexuality. Parents often don’t know the best way to answer them and it’s practically impossible to find the right time to start a conversation about the birds and the bees. Especially today, when most young people have access to the internet and its explicit or dubious content, it is extremely important to address the topic of sex education with children proactively and give it the attention it needs and deserves. As daunting as it might be for parents to take the lead, ­leaving the internet or a classmate to “explain” sexuality is not an option. Thankfully, the book Does This Happen to Everyone? offers a welcome alternative with a contemporary look and feel that is both fitting for kids and appealing to adults.

What if life could be simpler and slower, purer and more primal? As our world becomes more connected, many of us are left feeling more disconnected than ever. The more time we spend working, consuming, socialising online, the less our real lives make sense.

And most of all, remembering what it means to be human. Drawing on everything from modern science to ancient philosophy, contemporary culture to common sense, this is a manifesto for a more human-friendly, earth-friendly existence – without rules or deprivation. Join Emma Woolf on a journey to reclaim the peace that nature provides, find fulfilment in the everyday, rejoice in humanity and live a positively primal life
