            'I just want to warn you. You're going to dive to the end of the cave. You're going to see these kids. They're all looking healthy and happy and smiley. Then, you're going to swim away, and they're probably all going to die.' For seventeen days, the world watched and held its bre...ath as the Wild Boar soccer team were trapped deep in a cave in Thailand. Marooned beyond flooded cave passages after unexpected rains, they were finally rescued, one-by-one, against almost impossible odds, by an international cave-diving team which included Australians Dr Richard Harris and Dr Craig Challen. These two men were chosen for their medical expertise and cave diving knowledge, but this dangerous rescue asked so much more of them. They had to remain calm under extreme pressure and intense scrutiny, adapt to constantly changing circumstances and importantly, build trust among the rescue team and with the young boys and their coach, whose lives were in their hands. Here is the story of these two Australian men who became international heroes - it is a story of determination, cunning and triumph that will long be remembered.

            'A few years ago, I found myself in A&E. I had never felt so ill. I was mentally and physically broken. So fractured, I hadn't eaten properly or slept well, or even changed my expression for months. I sat in a cubicle, behind paper-thin curtains...and I shook with the effort of n...ot crying. I was an inch away from defeat... but I knew I had to carry on. Because I wasn't the patient. I was the doctor.' In this powerful memoir, Joanna Cannon tells her own story as a junior doctor, and the stories of many others like her, facing the extraordinary and sometimes daunting landmarks along the way: from the first shock of holding another person's life in your hands, to moments of crisis and loss. In a profession where weakness remains a taboo, this book will bring this tension to life with vivid, human stories, and hope for how we can better care for those we rely on to care for us - as well as crucial lessons on mental health at work for all of us.

            Kid Food: The Challenge of Feeding Children in a Highly Processed World

            Kid Food: The Challenge of Feeding Children in a Highly Processed World (Hardback)

            It has never been so difficult to raise a healthy eater in America. Along with the picky eating and public tantrums that have forever tested the limits of parental patience, today's parents also fend off sophisticated assaults from outside their kitchens: unhealthy food-marketing... campaigns aimed at kids; misleading product labels aimed at parents; and a school-food program so starved for cash that it sells name-brand junk food to grade school students. In Kid Food, nationally recognized food writer Bettina Elias Siegel (New York Times, The Lunch Tray) explores the cultural delusions and industry deceptions that have made it all but impossible to raise a healthy eater in America. Combining first-person reporting with the hard-won understanding of a food advocate and parent, it presents a startling portrayal of the current food landscape for children -- and the role of parents in navigating it. Siegel also lifts the curtain on shadowy food industry front-groups, including clever marketing techniques that intentionally confuse parents about a product's nutritional value. (Did you know that made with real fruit may mean a product is less healthy?) What emerges is the industry's divide-and-conquer strategy, one that stokes kids' desire for junk food while breaking down parents' ability to act as responsible gatekeepers. For anyone who frets over what their child is eating, Kid Food offers both essential reading and a deeper understanding of the factors at play in their child's food environment. Written in the same engaging and relatable voice that has made The Lunch Tray a trusted resource for parents for almost a decade, Kid Food offers a well of compassion -- and expertise -- for those fighting the good fight at home.

            When We're 64 is a practical guide to what to do before we grow older to have a great later life. This book includes all the essentials on working longer, how to fund retirement, volunteering, where to live and what kind of house you'll need. It covers how to stay healthy--and st...ill live a full life if you develop a health condition--and reveals how your attitude towards aging could actually increase your lifespan. There are sections on relationships with family and friends, as well as caring for older relatives and how to navigate the system, plus a sensitive look at loneliness. You're likely to live longer than you think--and I can tell you now, you're not prepared for it. Today's fifty-year-olds are likely to have an astounding 36 or more years to live. So if you're approaching later life, you need to think very differently about what those extra years will hold. Filled with expert advice and new evidence and tips on how to age well, When We're 64 is an eminently readable light-hearted look at how to plan and prepare for what could be the best years of your life. When we're 64, will we be wasting away, as the Beatles once put it, or will we be healthy, financially secure, and leading full and happy lives?
