Donald Trump is President-elect of the United States of America. Mainstream media and at least 50% of the US population (plus approximately 100% of the world) are still reeling. Here’s how 4th Estate authors met the news the morning of November 9th, 2016.
Happy British Science Week, the UK’s largest grassroots celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths. The week runs from 11th to 20th of March, and we thought that it might be quite nice to remind you that we LOVE science here at 4th Estate. To kick things off, an extract from I think You’ll Find It’s a Bit More Complicated Than That by Ben Goldacre!
Merry Christmas! If, like us, you’ve had your dinner and would like to take yourself to a quiet corner with something good to read and a cup of tea (or a second Christmas dinner- why not?) , rather than get into yet another discussion about politics or similar tricky topics with your aunt’s husband, then we have a treat for you.

We asked 4th Estate staff to write 30 words on one of 30 classic 4th Estate titles. Here’s Senior Editor Robert Lacey on ‘Bad Science‘ by Ben Goldacre
‘Ben Goldacre mercilessly but hilariously dissects the claims of media nutritionists, homeopaths and other purveyors of lucrative quackery. Required reading for anyone who cares about science – and anyone who thinks they don’t’
Happy GCSE results day! Yes, the day may feel slightly less important and life-changing than A-Level results day, but for some of you, you only have to wait a couple of years for that delight. In honour of the occasion, 4th Estate have compiled our very own GSCE book curriculum. Read more…
Merry Christmas everyone! I can picture the scene now – egg-nog a plenty, wafts of turkey drifting in from the kitchen and flashes of wrapping paper propelled across the room by mischievous animals (just me then?). You might just have awoken to a brand new e-reader, so it’s only right that we flag up the best 4th Estate books to begin building your e-library.
