Power of Now  - Wow’s Top 3 Favourite Books To Read In Bed​

The concept of this book is very simple – surrender to the present moment, where problems do not exist. This statement may at first seem too straightforward to be in any way life changing, or completely incorrect for someone currently experiencing challenging circumstances, and yet the author explains in a thought-provoking manner why it is both true and quite revolutionary.

 

The Power of Now provides both clarity and focus to allow us to become present, by showing us how important it is to live in the now, let go of the past and not fear the future.

 

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.”

Eckhart Tolle

 

Eckhart Tolle presents his book in a question and answer format, a style which naturally developed from discussions he had in seminars, meditation classes and private counselling sessions.

 

His spiritual teachings have inspired many people, including Oprah Winfrey and Annie Lennox, to become more conscious of how thoughts and emotions get in the way of the ability to live in genuine peace and happiness, how to free the mind from those thoughts, and enter into an enlightened state of consciousness.

 

“The Power of Now can transform your thinking. The result? More joy, right now.”

 

Oprah Winfrey

Elizabeth Apprenticeship - Wow’s Top 3 Favourite Books To Read In Bed​

Elizabeth I has gone down in history as England’s most successful ruler, in a world where men were kings and women were thought of as second class citizens.

 

Published to accompany the Channel 4 series – David Starkey’s Elizabeth – this fascinating tale details the tragi-comedy of her suitors and her struggles with other members of the royal family, including her imprisonment by half sister Mary Queen of Scots and traitor accusations that almost led to her execution.

 

David Starkey tells his historical drama in epic fashion, creating a vivid image of the legend that was Elizabeth I – the untouchable, charismatic Virgin Queen. Most biographies focus on the years of her reign, but this book explores her early years to find out how this remarkable character was forged.

 

The Queen’s early years are vital to a full understanding of the woman who led England into a new age of prosperity, power, and artistic achievement – David Starkey’s Elizabeth depiction is nothing short of captivating.

 

“Fresh and lively…vividly told…he sets before us not only the woman behind the throne but the girl behind the woman.”

Neuroscientist Matthew Walker illustrates how a good night’s sleep can make us cleverer, more attractive, slimmer, happier, healthier and ward off cancer in this Sunday Times bestselling book.

 

Professor Matthew Walker is a scientific expert, neuroscientist and sleep researcher. He created this book – the first of its kind – to explore 20 years of research and understand why we sleep, what good it serves, and why its absence damages our health.

 

“The shorter you sleep, the shorter you live.”

Matthew Walker 

 

Sleep is something we increasingly neglect in twenty-first-century society, with potentially devastating consequences: every major disease in the developed world – Alzheimer’s, cancer, obesity, diabetes – has very strong causal links to deficient sleep.

 

More than exercise, diet and wealth, science has shown that sleep is the most important factor to our physical and mental wellbeing. Why We Sleep delves into this research, looking at creatures from across the animal kingdom as well as human studies, to discuss topics such as what really happens during REM sleep, how caffeine and alcohol affect sleep and why our sleeping patterns change across our lifetime.

 

“Astonishing … an amazing book … absolutely chocker full of things that we need to know.”

 

Chris Evans
