When In Rome is a riotous, hilarious gift book that highlights the varying differences between foreign etiquettes when you travel abroad. The book illustrates various nations' cultural, social etiquettes and customs and how funny, confusing and downright ridiculous they are when compared to each other. The book is a rip-roaring guide to 50+ nations' opposing gestures, manners and ways of expressing themselves physically, when their is a communication breakdown in the language barrier. For example, never put your hands on your hips next to a Mexican (you're asking for a fight), and never give and Iranian a thumbs up (its rude). Trouble will ensue if you do! So, your government urges you: take this amazing travel guide with you with you when abroad, read it, learn from it and if you happen to meet a foreign traveller (which will be inevitable) remember what you've learnt and, please, please, please be on your best behaviour.

Irresistible feasts to share and remember with family and friends from the ocean, fields and clifftops of Cornwall. Simon Stallard set up The Hidden Hut to huge critical acclaim in 2011. An outdoor restaurant in Cornwall, tucked down on a remote sandy beach with no road access and completely off grid. He cooks up huge atmospheric open-air feasts for their diners throughout the year. In 2017, over 22,000 people applied for just 600 covers over their summer season, with tickets selling out within minutes of release each month, making it the hottest restaurant ticket in the UK. Simon's cooking techniques have become iconic in Cornwall - from fire pits in the sand to wind-chime fish smokers and wood-fired rotisseries - his feasts are influenced by the smouldering fires and field-to-fork Cornish produce that fill his outdoor beach kitchen. The Hidden Hut cookbook showcases inspiration for creating magical and memorable feasts. The recipes are adapted for the home cook and include delicious, achievable dishes for both small family meals and larger gatherings. Many of the recipes have the option to be cooked indoors conventionally or outdoors over fire. As well as sharing the feasts that made them so famous, there are further favourite Hidden Hut recipes for filling your flask with soups, chowders and spiced dhals, alfresco summer salads, warming winter braises and homely Cornish treats.

No matter your beliefs, background or what you do for a living, there are takeaways from this book that will make each of us better human beings. By focusing on the things that unite us – love, kindness and empathy – Treating People Well has the power to change the world for the better.' Karlie Kloss, supermodel and founder of Kode With Klossy
'Treating People Well is an essential guide for getting along and getting ahead in our world today.

Full of life lessons that are both timely and timeless, this is a book that will be devoured, bookmarked, and read over and over again.' John McCain, United States Senator
'I loved this book! Yes, as promised in the title, it shows you the value of treating people well and gives expert advice, but that is only part of it. The two authors – both former White House Social Secretaries in different administrations – provide fascinating glimpses of what’s behind the scenes at the White House. You’ll learn a lot while being vastly entertained.' Joan Ganz Cooney, founder, Sesame Street
Written by two former White House Social Secretaries, Treating People Well is a guide to developing social skills in order to build more successful relationships.
Using their unique access, the authors describe the behaviours that shape how an individual is perceived. While manners and etiquette may not seem relevant in today’s technology-burdened, politically contentious world, modern life has caused many people to feel disconnected and uncomfortable in their interactions with others.
This essential book gives readers the tools to live each day more positively, forging connections based on trust and mutual respect. The authors offer advice such as how to develop confidence, be consistent, use humour, listen carefully, radiate calm, resolve conflicts quickly, be honest but never cruel, cultivate loyalty, own your mistakes, work with difficult people, and attend to details, whether in the office or at home, dealing with friends or colleagues, as a student, a new employee or an experienced executive. Working in the most charged workplace possible, Lea and Jeremy honed these skills over years, striving to apply kindness, empathy and genuine caring to achieve success.
