The Weekly Top 10 Non-Fiction Bestseller List

Dr Michael Mosley’s latest offering The Clever Guts Diet takes readers on a revolutionary journey through the gut, showing her junk food and overuse of antibiotics have wiped out many ‘good gut’ bacteria. It takes the Number 1 spot for this week’s Top 10 Non-Fiction Bestseller List.

Divisive as always, and especially after such a controversial week in the media eye, it may come to a surprise that Mia Freedman’s Work Strife Balance remains at Number 10 this week. Her debut memoir is about her road to the top, founding Mamamia, and triumphing in the face of modern misadventures.

The Barefoot Investor by Scott Pape provides erudite financial guidance and offers a range of strategies to manage your personal finances.

Slow Cooker Central Super Savers is another cookbook from the popular Slow Cooker series by Paulene Christie, providing easy, budget-conscious recipes for everyday cooking.

Rupi Kaur’s collection of poetry Milk and Honey comments on womanhood, survival, and convalescence, and has been lauded across the globe as a surprise literary sensation. It’s in at Number 7 this week.

Rising up to Number 3 is The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson, a no-nonsense guidance on how to focus on the things that really matter.

And coming in at Number 6 is The CSIRO Low-Carb Diet by Grant Brickworth & Dr Pennie Taylor, which is a well-researched account of how the low-carb diet can help manage lifestyle-induced metabolic diseases, including unhealthy weight gain and type 2 diabetes.

Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls has been on the Top Ten Non-Fiction List since publication, and it includes 100 tales of extraordinary women – this week at Number 5.

Some more old friends include Sarah Wilson’s self-help/motivation title First, We Make the Beast Beautiful, which helps navigate the precarious road of anxiety, and comes in this week at Number 9.

Film Tie-in The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman takes the Number 8 spot. Written with the narrative drive and emotional punch of a novel, The Zookeeper’s Wife is a remarkable true story. It shows us the human and personal impact of war – of life in the Warsaw Ghetto, of fighting in the anti-Nazi resistance.

That’s it from us this week at Better Reading. Happy Reading!
