In this pithy and hilarious book, Karl Pilkington is in conversation with (the often bewildered) Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the writers and stars of The Office and Extras, unwittingly outwitting even those comedy Goliaths as he struggles in vain to make sense of the world around him. Unencumbered by erudition and impervious to logic, Karl ambles down a heuristic path to enlightenment under the edifying influence of Ricky and Steve. His pronouncements on such diverse and contentious topics as population control, simian affairs within human society, the sartorial deliberations of solitary spacemen and how long you can stay alive with your head chopped off, are matched in the vehemence with which they are proposed only by the degree to which they are ill-conceived. Featuring Karl's original illustrations, imaginative scribblings and the best conversations of the world record-breaking Podcasts, The Ricky Gervais Show, this is a unique trip into the world of one of our most innovative thinkers, visionaries and prophets, or as Gervais knows him, "the funniest man I've ever met."

What makes Noddy Holder tick? Godfather of glam, national treasure and thinking grandmother’s crumpet, Noddy has been at the epicentre of British pop culture since he stormed on to the music scene in the 1960s, and in The World According to Noddy he gives us a hilarious window on to his extraordinary life. Told in his own inimitable style, Noddy shares insider accounts of his days on the road, along with a healthy dose of celebrity gossip, and leaves no stone unturned as he expounds on some of his favourite subjects – fame, friendship and fatherhood, the perils of social media and the modern age, not to mention what it would be like if he ruled the world . . . From his early days on the West Midlands beat scene, including a stint as a roadie for Robert Plant, Noddy charts his rise from skinhead stomper to international pop-star, statesman, playboy, male model and philosopher, and of course one of the most integral parts of a Great British Christmas. Witty, wise and tremendously funny, this is Noddy Holder at his glittering best.

Everyone has a funny holiday story, and I don’t think mine are any weirder than anybody else’s. I mean, everyone has had a holiday that involved hospitals, monsters, movie stars and the biggest ball of twine on the planet, right? Gumbi vs The World follows two ‘relaxing’ holidays I took in 2006. The first found me hospitalized on New Year's Eve having travelled across Poland with a thirteen year old self confessed 'gangsta' and Bee Gees fan. The second trip, six months later, found me travelling across America trying to hunt down Mike Schank, star of the Sundance award winning documentary American Movie, before being hospitalized in Hollywood. If that wasn't enough there was also a hunt for the Hodag (a mythical beast from Rhinelander, Wisconsin) and a meeting with the biggest ball of twine in the world, and its creator. And on top of all that there were the usual problems like lost luggage, language barriers and work believing I was dead.
