We are in danger of being swept away on a tide of pessimism about love and relationships. Endless cynical stories of affairs by politicians, athletes and celebrities fill the media. The dominant message is that creating a rewarding and enduring romantic relationship is impossible. In The Love Secret Dr Sue Johnson draws on the very latest scientific studies on attachment theory, including her own research, to show that this just isn't the case. The Big News is that we are naturally monogamous, bonding animals. A lasting, loving relationship is completely within our reach. In The Love Secret you will discover how the brain works when you are in a stable, caring relationship and how you can use this groundbreaking knowledge to achieve such positive results in your own life.
In How to Live Forever, social entrepreneur Marc Freedman argues that we don't need medical or scientific intervention to live forever. Instead of trying to be young, we can live forever (and save money) by being there for those who are young. Investing time with young people, mentoring, and passing wisdom from generation to generation, is truly living one's legacy. For the first time ever, we have more older people than young people, more people over 60 than under 20. In these new demographics we are more dependent than ever as societies on the flourishing of young people. Freedman will show how various innovations around the world are beginning to bring the generations together in ways that are mutually beneficial and suited to the realities of the 21st century. With insights from brain science, human development, and other research, he provides a blueprint for how societies can remain vital even as they age, and how to find great purpose and joy in the second half of life.

Transform your relationship with yourself, those around you, and the world. A brand new vision for achieving human fulfilment from the NATIONAL BESTSELLING author of The Art of Possibility, Rosamund Stone Zander _________ In this powerful and inspiring book, family therapist and executive coach Rosamund Stone Zander shows us that life is a story we tell ourselves, and so we have the power to change that story. As children, we develop stories about how the world works, most of which are amended over time. But some stay with us, and these stories can be the source of behavioural and emotional patterns that hold us back. When we learn to identify and rewrite these stories, limitless growth becomes possible. By breaking old patterns and telling a new story we can transform not just our own lives, but also our relationships with others whether in a marriage, a classroom, or a business. With this new understanding of ourselves and our place within an interconnected world, we can take powerful action in the collective interest, and gain a sense of deep connection to the universe. This galvanizing book expands our notions of how much we can grow and change, whether we can affect others or the world at large, and how much freedom and joy we can experience.

Millions of families are affected by eating disorders, which usually strike young women between the ages of fourteen and twenty. But current medical practice ties these families' hands when it comes to helping their children recover. Conventional medical wisdom dictates separating the patient from the family and insists that 'it's not about the food', even as a family watches a child waste away before their eyes. In BRAVE GIRL EATING Harriet Brown describes how her family, with the support of an open-minded paediatrician and a therapist, helped her daughter recover from anorexia using a family-based treatment developed at the Maudsley Hospital in London. Chronicling her daughter Kitty's illness from the earliest warning signs, through its terrifying progression, and on toward recovery, Brown takes us on one family's journey into the world of anorexia nervosa, where starvation threatened her daughter's body and mind. BRAVE GIRL EATING is essential reading for families and professionals alike, a guiding light for anyone who's coping with this devastating disease.
In this third installment in her pictogram series for TASCHEN, leading graphic designer Yang Liu brings the way we were face to face with the way we are. Hot on the heels of its best-selling predecessors, Today meets Yesterday deploys the same vivid pictogram pairings to explore the transformations, and the challenges, of our ever-evolving world. Liu has made her name with a combination of graphic precision and incisive observation of behavior patterns. In Today meets Yesterday, her eye for tastes and trends takes ambitious scope, juxtaposing past with present to explore fundamental shifts in society. Along the way, we encounter the tussle between competing ideologies, historic and current global dangers, our interaction with the environment, and the wholesale impact of technology on our ways of living, learning, and loving, from online retail to the rise of the "smombie." With an eye on everything from geopolitics to concentration spans, Liu's panorama incorporates the details of daily experience as much as the momentous happenings in history. Through Facebook, food waste, collectivism, and much more, Today meets Yesterday casts the familiar situation in a crisp and discerning light, bringing fresh awareness, as well as some ironies, to who we are and where we came from.
