By Quentin Letts
From the Sunday Times bestselling author of 50 People Who Buggered Up Britain, Quentin Letts, comes his blistering new book on how Britain's out-of-touch, illiberal elite fills its boots.'HILARIOUS' Daily Mail'With its vicious takedowns, Quentin Letts' laugh-out-loud Patronising Bastards will have the lefty-elite running scared' The SunNot since Marie Antoinette said 'Let them eat cake' have the peasants been so revolting. Western capitalism's elites are bemused: Brexit, Trump, and maybe more eruptions to follow. But their rulers were so good to them! Hillary Clinton called the ingrates 'a basket of deplorables', Bob Geldof flicked them a V sign, Tony Blair thought voters too thick to understand the question. Wigged judges stared down their legalistic noses at a surging, pongy populous.These people who know best, these snooterati with their faux-liberal ways, are the 'Patronising Bastards'. Their downfall is largely of their own making - their Sybaritic excesses, an obsession with political correctness, the prolonged rape of reason and rite. You'll find these self-indulgent show-ponys not just in politics and the cloistered old institutions but also in high fashion, football, among the clean-eating foodies and at the Baftas and Oscars, where celebritydom hires PR smoothies to massage reputations and mislead, distort, twist. Political columnist and bestselling author Quentin Letts identifies these condescending creeps and their networks, their methods and their dubious morals. Letts kebabs them like mutton. It's baaaahd. It's juicy.Richard Branson, Emma Thompson, Shami Chakrabarti, Jean-Claude Juncker and any head waiter who calls you 'young man' - this one's for you!

McCall's Pattern Behavior's wry sense of humor will appeal to a wide swathe of readers, whether or not they remember the vintage McCall's patterns from their youth.Praise from blog fans: "I don't drink milk because it comes out of my nose when I read stuff as funny as Pattern Behavior.""I just spent approx. 20 min ugly cry-laughing over Pattern Behavior. My friend nearly had a hilarity-induced asthma attack.""I just discovered Pattern Behavior, died, and then died again because we finished them all. MOAR PLZ (sic)."

The Prime Minister's Ironing Board and Other State Secrets
By Adam Macqueen
Stored in Whitehall's archives are everything from blood-chilling warnings of imminent nuclear attack to comical details of daily life in the corridors of power. Concerned notes from ministers on the subject of the Heir to the Throne's potential brainwashing by Welsh terrorists are shelved alongside worries about housemaids 'on the wobble' at Chequers.Detailed and surprising plans for royal funerals sit beside reports on suspected spies in the showbiz world and bawdy poetry about the monkeys on the Rock of Gibraltar. And Mary Whitehouse's complaints about the sex education syllabus nestle next to thank-you notes from prisoner 13260/62, also known as Nelson Mandela.Adam Macqueen, author of the highly acclaimed bestseller Private Eye: The First 50 Years, has searched high and low to present us with some of the most unlikely revelations since the Official secrets act was inaugurated one hundred years ago. Not only about Mrs Thatcher's ironing board, but Ted Heath's car, Harold Macmillan's bedroom carpet, Imelda Marcos and her son Bong Bong's trip to Buckingham Palace and President Eisenhower's particular problem with Winston Churchill's trousers.
Psych's Guide to Crime Fighting for the Totally Unqualified
By Shawn Spencer, Burton Guster
Psych is a quick-witted comedy/drama starring James Roday as young police consultant Shawn Spencer who solves crimes with powers of observation so acute that Santa Barbara PD detectives think he's psychic.

Also featured are Timothy Omundson, Maggie Lawson and Kirsten Nelson. As with Monk, Psych mixes comedy with its crime and features a somewhat eccentric lead character - Shawn, a police Psychic with absolutely no psychic abilities.So Shawn is an expert on crime fighting for the totally unqualified, and with Gus's help, will show readers how to prepare for a stake out, profile suspects, solve cold cases, sneak snacks at the crime scene, and create disguises from a $.99 store. All with the trademark Psych humor.
Pot Psychology's How To Be
By Tracie Egan Morrissey, Rich Juzwiak, Lindsay Mound
Nobody needs advice, but everybody wants it. Conversely, everybody wants to give advice but we need to. It's in our blood...because we're stoned. That's the point. And what better way to legitimize two stoned people's need to babble advice than with a book?Allow us to introduce ourselves: We're Tracie and Rich. We go way back. We met as teenagers in 1998, during our freshman year at NYU. We were at a dorm party, where lesbians and gay men were making out. Tracie had short hair and glasses; Rich approached and asked, "Do you like Ani DiFranco?" That was not a come-on. We didn't kiss (and Tracie is not a lesbian, anyway), but we did shotgun a joint. From there, a friendship was born. Flash forward 12 years. We host an Internet video series in which we answer viewer-submitted questions, solving their problems with the help of an herbal remedy. Basically we get stoned and tell people how to live their lives. We give our two cents (or is that 420 sense?) on all of life's non-problems from party etiquette, problems in the workplace, what religion to be, to whether or not your boyfriend/girlfriend/parent/friend/teacher/pet is gay.At this point, we want to get higher, and take things to the next level. We've already gotten inside people's heads-now we want to get in their pants. With a pocket guide, pervert.It is intended to be a reference guide for people to carry through life. Because you never know when life will present a non-problem outside of a wifi hot zone. (And that's a non-problem solved right there.)
By Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein

It is syled exactly like a Lonely Planet city guide but to the fictional city of "Portlandia" and the unusual residents who make it their home - a militant bike messenger, an artsy couple who attach cut-outs of birds to everything ("put a bird on it!"), an organic farmer who turns out to be a cult leader, an adult hide and seek league, several self-righteous feminist bookstore owners, and a punk rock couple who use the safe word "cacao" to help govern their love life. The book offers readers a glimpse into the characters, scenarios and themes that make Portlandia tick.It will also contain 20-40 maps/charts/graphs/drawings/photographs throughout.
