Nathan mixes his most popular Instagram comics with more than thirty original works created exclusively for this second volume to explore four major topics: traditions, nature, emotions, and knowledge . He inducts new and longtime fans into a strangely familiar world and its culture, from "cohesion" (marriage) to "mild poison" (alcohol) to the full lyrics to "The Small Eight-Legged Creature" (sung to the tune of The Itsy Bitsy Spider ). Bright, colourful, and whimsical - yet charmingly familiar - Stranger Planet is out-of-this-world fun.

A dog philosopher questions what it really means to be a 'good boy'. A virtual assistant and a robot-cleaner elope. The undiscovered species and the theoretical particle face existential despair. Just as he did with writers, poets and literary classics in Baking with Kafka , Gauld now does with hapless scientists, nanobots, and puzzling theorems - with comic strips funny enough to engage science boffins and novices alike.
* From the writer and executive producer of the award-winning Netflix series The Good Place that made moral philosophy fun: a foolproof guide to making the correct moral decision in every situation you ever encounter, anywhere on earth, forever * How can we live a more ethical life? This question has plagued people for thousands of years, but it''s never been tougher to answer than it is now, thanks to challenges great and small that flood our day-to-day lives and threaten to overwhelm us with impossible decisions and complicated results with unintended consequences. Plus, being anything close to an ''ethical person'' requires daily thought and introspection and hard work; we have to think about how we can be good not, you know, once a month, but literally all the time . To make it a little less overwhelming, this fascinating, accessible and funny book by one of our generation''s best writers and adept minds in television comedy, Michael Schur, boils down the whole confusing morass with real life dilemmas (from ''should I punch my friend in the face for no reason?'' to ''can I still enjoy great art if it was created by terrible people?), so that we know how to deal with ethical dilemmas. Much as Chidi used humour and philosophy to make Eleanor a less selfish person, Schur takes us on a journey through the 2500-year discussion of ethics, explaining and poking fun at these grand ideas, and sketching a roadmap for how we ought to act. By the time the book is done, we''ll know exactly how to act in every conceivable situation, so as to produce a verifiably maximal amount of moral good. We will be perfect, and all our friends will be jealous. OK, not quite. Instead, we''ll gain fresh, funny, inspiring wisdom on the toughest issues we face every day With contributions from Professor Todd May of Clemson University, who served as an advisor on The Good Place, this is a brilliant, clever and hugely entertaining about one of the most important topics in the world. ''The problem is, if all you care about in the world is the velvet rope, you will always be unhappy, no matter which side you''re on.'' - Tahani Al-Jamil, The Good Place

A candid and brilliantly funny memoir...
...of how a tall, shy youth from Weston-super-Mare went on to become a self-confessed comedy legend.
En route, John Cleese describes his nerve-wracking first public appearance at St Peter's Preparatory School at the age of eight and five-sixths; his endlessly peripatetic home life with parents who seemed incapable of staying in any house for longer than six months; his first experiences in the world of work as a teacher who knew nothing about the subjects he was expected to teach; his hamster-owning days at Cambridge; and his first encounter with the man who would be his writing partner for over two decades, Graham Chapman.
And so on to his dizzying ascent via scriptwriting for Peter Sellers, David Frost, Marty Feldman and others to the heights of Monty Python.
Punctuated from time to time with John Cleese's thoughts on topics as diverse as the nature of comedy, the relative merits of cricket and waterskiing, and the importance of knowing the dates of all the kings and queens of England, this is a masterly performance by a former schoolmaster.

100% UNOFFICIAL The newly discovered diary of Boris Alexander de Pfeffel Johnson, aged 13 Â provides a fascinating and glimpse into Johnson's innermost thoughts and feelings and will reveal a hitherto hidden side of the man best known to the country as BoJo ___ Tuesday, 20th September, 1977 During Latin this AM, our teacher Mr Beesley - he of the confetti dandruff and bodily odours - demanded that I give a brief talk on Catullus. Apparently I'd volunteered to do so last week, then forgotten about it entirely. Well, dearest D, I don't mind telling you that the Johnson brain was mightily flummoxed. Without the faintest clue what I was about to say, I rose to my feet. "Um, gosh, yes, Catullus," I began. "What can one say about Catullus? Well, I have always strived to keep my feelings on Catullus a secret. But now I shall have to let the Cat-ullus out of the bag." "Yes, yes, very good, Johnson," said Mr Beesley, "but you're meant to be telling us about his poetry". "Well, um, quite," I shot back. "Knowing, as I do, so much about Catullus - and, indeed, his poetry! - it's tough to know where to begin. Perhaps, then, I should start with the basics: Catullus was a Roman. As such, he had a roman head, roman shoulders and, of course, roman hands. Yes, that poet's hands would roam all over the place. He was the most notorious bottom-pincher in the whole republic!" Yet more laughter! Sometimes I wonder whether I should be a comedian when I grow up, rather than Prime Minister. Then again, why not BOTH? Ended the day by raiding the tuck shop, to replenish my dwindling supply of Curly Wurlies. Checked my mons pubis for hair again just now. Still nothing . . .

Radical slam poet and queen of social justice Titania McGrath has turned her talents to the realm of children's non-fiction. Aimed at activists from the age of six months to six years, Titania's book will help cultivate a new woke generation, following in the footsteps of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls , C Is For Consent and The Little Girl Who Gave Zero Fucks . Titania believes that childhood is a form of slavery, with adults indoctrinating their charges into outdated belief systems. Why, for instance, do teachers focus so relentlessly on mathematics and literacy when their pupils lack even the most basic understanding of poststructuralist queer theory? Titania is able to empathise with the young because she too is oppressed. She is a woman in a patriarchal world. She is an ecosexual in a heteronormative culture. She is a vegan in an ocean of carnivorous aggressors. She is also hay-racial, which means that her ethnic identity tends to fluctuate depending on the pollen count. In My First Little Book of Intersectional Activism , Titania will take her young readers on a tour of the new cultural titans from Caroline Criado-Perez to Michelle Obama and Jo Swinson to 12-year-old drag kid sensation Desmond is Amazing. Essential bedtime reading for every child who dreams of standing up to oppression - and changing the world.
