Start to Win by Eric Twiname

Obviously dated but well worth a read as much of the advice is as sound as it ever was. Dinghy design and construction has changed but the skill and mental attitude of the skipper remains the vital factor
Gideon's Day (Gideon of Scotland Yard) by John Creasey
I cannot think how House of Status could publish a book where the production is SO bad that even the title is misprinted throughout! Really this book is littered with errors. Otherwise it's a fairly standard John Creasey title which one either enjoys or not.
The Examined Life: How We Lose and Find Ourselves by Stephen Grosz

I was surprised to be given this book and wasn't at all sure that I'd like it. With in just a few pages I realised it was something special. The story of each encounter is so neatly and unpretentiously written and yet there are such insights to be shared. It's also the hidden story of this man's working life. I had tears in my eyes at the end.
