The Weekly Top 10 Non-Fiction Bestseller List

James Halliday is back with Halliday Wine Companion 2018, the definitive Australian guide to delicious wines.

New to the list is Luke Hines’ Healthy Made Easy, a guide for meal creation that guarantees delicious, sustainable, good-for-you food! Also new to this week’s list is Live Lead Learn by Gail Kelly, which is the story of one of Australia’s most remarkable and successful businesswomen, told in her own words.

Last King of the Cross by John Ibrahim is a provocative autobiographical account of John Ibrahim, one of the X’s first nightclub owners who still calls it his home. It documents the shapeshifting of Kings Cross from one of Sydney’s vibrant bygone eras.

Another new addition is David Gillespie’s latest, Taming Toxic People. It’s a self-help book that aims to provide strategies for how to identify and deal with psychopaths at work and at home.

Following the widespread acclaim of the movie, Dunkirk by Joshua Levine has made it onto the Top Ten Bestselling Non-Fiction. Told from the viewpoints of land, sea and air, Levine’s Dunkirk is a dramatic account of a defeat that paved the way to ultimate victory and preserved liberty for generations to come.

At Number 1 is The Barefoot Investor by Scott Pape, which provides erudite financial guidance and offers a range of strategies to manage your personal finances.

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.

Number 2 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.

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 6.
The Little Book of Big Weightloss is a no nonsense guide to radical and sustainable weight loss for anyone sick and tired of diet failure and confused by conflicting diet advice and complicated regimens.
