Ethel & Ernest - Raymond Briggs
Nonfictionguy's rating:

This is an excellent non-fiction title that I cannot recommend highly enough. It is the first biography that reveals not only Sir Roger Mortimer's career as a feudal lord, a governor of Ireland, a rebel leader and a dictator of England but goes into the truth of what may have happened to the deposed King of England (King Edward II). To say this is just a biography may give the wrong impression, implying that its just boring historical facts and dates, it isn’t. Although historically accurate, the story of Sir Roger Mortimer is suitable for a blockbuster movie, with a great rise to power, the loss of everything, an escape from the Tower of London, becoming the lover of the King’s wife, invading England and removing Edward II in the first deposition of a monarch in British history. Even when ruling England for three years the tale doesn’t loose pace with absolute power clearly corrupting absolutely. I won’t ruin the ending, but if you know your English history you already may know it. It is also important to point out that with such a life, this book could also easily become some romanticised Hollywood version of history in which knights wear shining armour and the smell of old sweat and urine isn’t present, but all credit to the author he keeps it real and ensures a historical context is provided, so you don’t need to know your history to really enjoy this book or get a true sense of actually witnessing events. This isn’t a quick read book however with four hundred pages and small print needed to cram in one interesting life story, but equally it isn’t a book you’ll put down until entirely read. Anyone interested in non-fiction, history or just a thumping good tale will enjoy this book.

This is the perfect book. Small enough to carry in a trouser pocket, fact filled enough to entertain on a long journey or holiday, and when finished you'll rant and rave about it to friends and family. Like a condensed editon of the TV Show QI, every page contains interesting trade secrets, facts and hidden gems of information. It is hard to describe this book as the facts are so diverse, but all are interesting and accurate. I'd recommend this book to everyone!

The Survival Skills Handbook - Martyn Forrester
This is the second best survival book published and one of the few books I'd actually take with me on any journey. It's extremely well written, covering not just practical needs and standard survival instruction, but also the mindset required. Examples are also given with survivors telling their personal stories, so you know the challenges ahead and what is required to overcome them. This is also the only book I know that covers cannibalism seriously.
