The Happiness Dictionary

Tim Lomas
Authors:
Tim Lomas

Have you ever had a feeling that you couldn't quite describe, because no English word exists for it? Indeed, without such a word, it can make it difficult to remember or understand the feeling, and certainly to talk about it with other people. This applies to all aspects of life, and not least to that most sought-after of feelings, happiness, where our ability to experience and understand it is limited by the words at our disposal. However, all is not lost. Even if English has not created a word for a specific feeling, or indeed any phenomena, another language might have. These are known as 'untranslatable' words, terms which lack an exact equivalent in another language. If we can discover and learn these words, the boundaries of our world will expand accordingly. These words may allow us to give voice to feelings we've already hazily experienced, but have previously lacked the ability to conceptualise. They may even allow us to encounter new feelings that we hadn't previously been aware of or enjoyed.This book aims to introduce readers to a wealth of untranslatable terms relating to happiness, sourced from across the world's languages. As a result, their understanding and even experience of happiness will be enriched.

No One Cares About Crazy People

Ron Powers
Authors:
Ron Powers

"Extraordinary and courageous . . . No doubt if everyone were to read this book, the world would change."---New York Times Book ReviewNew York Times-bestselling author Ron Powers' critically acclaimed narrative of the social history of mental illness in America paired with the deeply personal story of his two sons' battles with schizophrenia.From the centuries of torture of "lunatiks" at Bedlam Asylum to the infamous eugenics era to the follies of the anti-psychiatry movement to the current landscape in which too many families struggle alone to manage afflicted love ones, Powers limns our fears and myths about mental illness and the fractured public policies that have resulted. Braided with that history is the moving story of Powers's beloved son Kevin--spirited, endearing, and gifted--who triumphed even while suffering from schizophrenia until finally he did not, and the story of his courageous surviving son Dean, who is also schizophrenic. A blend of history, biography, memoir, and current affairs ending with a consideration of where we might go from here, this is a thought-provoking look at a dreaded illness that has long been misunderstood.

Lust for Love

Pamela Anderson, Shmuley Boteach
Authors:
Pamela Anderson, Shmuley Boteach

Pamela Anderson and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach guide readers on a path to healthier lust and intimacy in the bedroom in THE SENSUAL REVOLUTION.According to Anderson and the Rabbi, meaningful, passionate desire and sex are dying. We are inundated with sex and starved for it, obsessed with it in our culture yet seemingly clueless about it. We see it in high divorce rates, in the degradation of sexuality through pornography, and tasteless displays of empty, counterfeit erotica. Married couples have sex, on average, once a week--and for about ten minutes. Sex has become so trivialized, coarsened, and vulgarized that married couples no longer feel its pull. THE SENSUAL REVOLUTION embraces the idea that what our most important relationships need most is lust. Readers will learn what's sexy again, how to bring back romance, and to understand that in addition to love, we need lust to repair our unfulfilling sex lives and broken relationships.

This book is all about how to survive and thrive when it happens to you.We all have a moan about going to work: groaning about getting on the bus in the rush hour, counting down to the weekend. A gripe here and there is understandable and expected, but what happens when the effects of work are far more detrimental to your wellbeing than a simple case of Sunday-night blues?

In Is Your Job Making You Ill?, Dr Ellie Cannon uses her decade of experience treating patients to create an essential resource for anybody suffering from job-related ill-health. Part one of the book lays out the key causes of job-related illness - from the pressure of an unmanageable workload to the challenges of an emotionally-draining job - and identifies the most common illnesses and symptoms which can occur as a result, including stress, anxiety, insomnia, high blood pressure and IBS.Part two will help you to find a way out. It includes a practical, self-directed programme that can be tailored to your individual circumstances, covering everything from where to find help, when (and if) to seek professional advice or take time off work, to micro-actions like improving your commute and adjusting your diet to support a healthy lifestyle.

The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog, 3rd Edition

Bruce D. Perry, Maia Szalavitz
Authors:
Bruce D. Perry, Maia Szalavitz

What happens when a young child is traumatized? How does terror affect a child's mind-and how can that mind recover? Child psychiatrist Bruce Perry has treated children faced with unimaginable horror: homicide survivors, witnesses to their own parents' murders, children raised in closets and cages, the Branch Davidian children, and victims of extreme neglect and family violence. In The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog, Dr. Perry tells their stories of trauma and transformation. He explains what happens to the brain when children are exposed to extreme stress and trauma and reveals his innovative (non-medicinal) methods for helping to ease their pain and allowing them to become healthy adults. In this deeply informed and moving book, Perry shares with the reader the lessons of courage, humanity and hope he learned from these scarred children. He dramatically demonstrates that only when we understand the science of the mind and the power of love and nurturing, can we hope to heal the spirit of even the most wounded child.

The CBT Anxiety Solution Workbook

Matthew McKay
Authors:
Matthew McKay

You are stronger than your anxiety! In this important workbook, best-selling authors Matthew McKay, Patrick Fanning, and Michelle Skeen offer a breakthrough anxiety solution based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you understand and overcome your fears and worries, rather than try to avoid them. If you suffer from an anxiety disorder, you may try to avoid situations that cause you to feel worry, fear, or panic. You may even believe that terrible things will happen to you if you face the things that make you anxious. But avoidance isn't a long-term solution, and in the end it may result in more anxiety. This book shows you how the simple belief that you can endure your worries and fears-both mentally and physically-can be an extremely powerful treatment. Using a breakthrough approach combining proven-effective CBT and exposure therapy, this workbook helps you understand how worry and rumination drive anxiety, and offers practical exercises to help you adopt new habits of observing your thoughts, rather than accepting them as the "ultimate truth." You'll also develop mindfulness and self-soothing coping skills to help you manage anxiety in the moment, rather than avoid it. Over time these practices will show you that you are more powerful than your anxiety. If you've been stuck in a cycle of anxiety and avoidance, this workbook will help you make the changes you need to get your life back.

Messy

Tim Harford
Authors:
Tim Harford

The urge to tidiness seems to be rooted deep in the human psyche. Many of us feel threatened by anything that is vague, unplanned, scattered around or hard to describe. We find comfort in having a script to rely on, a system to follow, in being able to categorise and file away.We all benefit from tidy organisation - up to a point. A large library needs a reference system. Global trade needs the shipping container. Scientific collaboration needs measurement units. But the forces of tidiness have marched too far. Corporate middle managers and government bureaucrats have long tended to insist that everything must have a label, a number and a logical place in a logical system. Now that they are armed with computers and serial numbers, there is little to hold this tidy-mindedness in check. It's even spilling into our personal lives, as we corral our children into sanitised play areas or entrust our quest for love to the soulless algorithms of dating websites. Order is imposed when chaos would be more productive. Or if not chaos, then . . . messiness.The trouble with tidiness is that, in excess, it becomes rigid, fragile and sterile. In Messy, Tim Harford reveals how qualities we value more than ever - responsiveness, resilience and creativity - simply cannot be disentangled from the messy soil that produces them. This, then, is a book about the benefits of being messy: messy in our private lives; messy in the office, with piles of paper on the desk and unread spreadsheets; messy in the recording studio, the laboratory or in preparing for an important presentation; and messy in our approach to business, politics and economics, leaving things vague, diverse and uncomfortably made-up-on-the-spot. It's time to rediscover the benefits of a little mess.
