Win Teach Yourself books

Win Teach Yourself to Fly, Teach Yourself to Live, Teach Yourself Bird Watching, Teach Yourself Cycling, and Teach Yourself Good Manners

New Year’s resolutions – bullet journals, overnight oats, mindfulness; they’re made with the best intentions but rarely are they kept. Now is your chance to change that.

Since 1938, millions of people have learnt to do the things they love with Teach Yourself, the how-to guides that changed the modern world. Over the years we’ve been taught all manner of life skills – from how to fly a plane to how to peel an apple at a dinner party.


Since 1991 The Big Issue has sold more than 200,000,000 copies – helping the most vulnerable in society earn more than £115 million.

Now is your chance to do it, too. We have the following titles to give away:

  • Teach Yourself to Fly
  • Teach Yourself to Live
  • Teach Yourself Bird Watching
  • Teach Yourself Cycling
  • Teach Yourself Good Manners
