Dan Hardy's first book is much more than a straightforward MMA autobiography. Taking the key fights from his career, Hardy explores the sport with the unparalleled insight that has made him the best analyst working today, from training in China with Shaolin monks to how MMA helped him channel his rage, to psychedelics and the ceremony in Peru that changed his life, to tapping in to his 'reptilian brain' and the psychological warfare of UFC, to his epic title fight with Georges St-Pierre.

When a baby escapes a murderer intent on killing the entire family, who would have thought it would find safety and security in the local graveyard?

But for Bod there is also the danger of the murderer still looking for him - after all, he is the last remaining member of the family.

Neil Gaiman writes stories like no other and he breathes life into his charcters with such love it's impossible not to get lost in his books. This one is among my favourites

A kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth from best-selling storytelling legend Neil Gaiman. A BBC Radio 4 adaptation of Anansi Boys, featuring an all-star cast lead by Lenny Henry, will premiere on Christmas Day 2017. Fat Charlie Nancy is not actually fat. He was fat once but he is definitely not fat now. No, right now Fat Charlie Nancy is angry, confused and more than a little scared - right now his life is spinning out of control, and it is all his dad's fault.
