Top Dog is the dog book that every dog lover has been waiting for.

Imagine having a dog with the shiniest coat, the wettest, coldest nose, the brightest eyes and a svelte physique. A dog with ‘good’ energy, better concentration, that sleeps well and, wait for it, smells delicious.

Well you can have that dog. By making a few key changes to the way you look after him.

Don’t panic. This won’t disrupt your life. And it won’t cost you a fortune – you will save money in the long run. Simply follow the step by step guide offered by Kate Bendix in this book – her advice on diet (fresh is best, even for your mutt), on health (go natural!) and lifestyle (dogs have them too) – and you will have the happiest Larry on the lead.

I Can’t Believe It’s Baby Food!

My aim is to help parents make both cooking and mealtimes as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. It’s all about sharing food that the whole family will love, with your baby in a highchair pulled up to the table. Apart from the first few weeks of weaning, there really is no need to cook twice. In fact, it’s much better that you don’t! Your baby will benefit both nutritionally and developmentally from eating with you; and, if you are not stuck in the kitchen all day preparing endless different meals, you’ll be happier and less frazzled, too.

Your child’s development depends on three key areas of health that are intertwined and are interdependent – these are the Brain, the Immune system and the Gut (BIG). The first thousand days seems to be the critical window to get this essential BIG nutrition trio functioning well, as that is when your baby’s mind, immune-resilience and intestinal health are being primed for the future.

Extra Life

Steven Johnson will present a four-part television series with historian David Olusoga, also titled Extra Life: A Short History of Living Longer. As with the book, the series, set in the context of today’s COVID-19 crisis, explores the lessons learned from previous global pandemics—including smallpox, cholera, the Spanish flu, and others—and reveals how scientists, doctors, self-experimenters, and activists launched a public health revolution, saving millions of lives, fundamentally changing how we think about illness and ultimately paving the way for modern medicine.
