Books for the hard-working, analytical thinkers born 23 August – 22 September.

Oh, painstaking, methodical Virgo – if only every sign was like you. At least, that’s what you like to think. But by bringing your heathy disposition and superior organisational skills to every task, every day, you demonstrate the heightened attention to detail that sets you apart. You role model, you. Here are some books for the pragmatists.

  • The greatest war story in literature, retold by our greatest living storyteller on war - in the voice of the forgotten woman who lived through it.

  • The beautiful hardback edition of the multi-million copy international bestseller. Live in a clean and clutter-free home forever with the life-changing KonMari Method.

  • Physicist and rising BBC star, Dr Helen Czerski shows that science isn't something complicated for someone else somewhere else but all around us, happening right now in pigeons, teacups and cakes.

  • Heart of the Grass Tree is an exquisite, searing and hope-filled debut about mothers and daughters and family stories, about country and its living history.
