Joe Wicks receives platinum award status for his book Lean in 15

The authors of some of the most successful books of recent years have been honoured at the first Specsavers Bestseller Awards, powered by Nielsen Book.

Awards were given in three categories – Non-Fiction, Fiction and Children’s. Recently published titles to receive Platinum Awards included body coach Joe Wicks’ Lean in 15 (published by Pan Macmillan – Bluebird)

Joe Wicks was delighted: “I can’t believe I’m getting an award for selling one million copies of Lean In 15 in the UK – who would have thought that setting up an Instagram account would lead to this! Never in a million years did I imagine I’d have a book, let alone be given an award and be in the Hall of Fame alongside some amazing people and idols like Jamie Oliver and Delia Smith.”
