We have a few new books appearing this week. In Fiction, we’ve got Grace After Henry by Eithne Shortall and The Gospel According to Blindboy by Blindboy Boatclub at 5 and 4 respectively in the Original Fiction chart. We’ve also got a runaway new entry at no. 1 in Hardback Non-Fiction as well as no. 1 overall, from our favourite Flynn twins: The Happy Pear: Recipes for Happiness.

On the note of happiness, as we’re into Mental Health Awareness Month we’re delighted with this week’s featured book from Dr. Harry Barry which has arrived straight into no. 1 for Paperback Non-Fiction just a couple of days after its release, Emotional Resilience: How to safeguard your mental health. Here’s a bit more about the book:

THE BRAND NEW BOOK FROM INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR DR HARRY BARRY.

There are many challenges facing our mental health. We are living in the middle of an anxiety epidemic, depression is the one of the most significant mental health issues of our time, self-harm is endemic amongst school children and technology and social media are insidiously and pervasively invading our lives leading to toxic stress.

In this book, bestselling author and GP Dr Harry Barry reveals how you can unlock your inner emotional resilience reserves, deal with the challenges of life, and protect your mental health. He explores the key skills needed to transform your emotional capacity and reach your full potential.

He covers:
Personal skills teaching you how to deal with self-acceptance, perfectionism, frustration, failure and success, the physical symptoms of anxiety, procrastination, problem solving and catastrophising.
Social skills such as how to develop and practice empathy, read social cues and how to deal with anxiety in social and performance situations.
Life skills such as how to deal with the unfairness and discomfort of life, pragmatism and conflict resolution, how to develop a work/life balance and what to do when stress comes calling.

And now on to the charts, starting with the Top 20 and wrapping up with the Top 10 in each category.
