2015 has seen our shelves filled with row after row of intriguing and insightful non-fiction reads to educate, engross and entertain. From political portraits, to emotional memoirs, to lifestyle-changing cookbooks, there has been plenty of variety to keep us reading throughout the year.
Not only did we see the first autobiographies from the likes of Grace Jones, The Hairy Bikers and Tom Jones, but we also saw the figurative red tape removed from Steven Gerrard’s mouth as he wrote his first autobiography whilst not under contract with Liverpool FC.
