We’re always open to the idea of self-improvement and so, clearly, is the editorial team of Monocle magazine. They’ve recently put together a 400-page book which, while maintaining the tone and style of the magazine, intends to guide you towards better living. The guide features a great deal of photography and illustrations alongside recommendations, reports and anecdotal inspiration to aid you on your journey. From locations worth visiting to products to try and ideas for your consideration, Monocle’s first foray into the hard-copy book world provides a wide-range of advice. If you’re open to the idea of taking advice from Monocle (which may include pointers on choosing the best luxury yacht on your budget – it is Monocle after all), the book is available for pre-order now from the Monocle online shop for £40 with release slated for September 2013.
