            From the global pioneer whose work inspired The 8 Week Blood Sugar Diet, a Iife-changing guide to reversing type 2 diabetes. For centuries type 2 diabetes has been regarded as an incurable, lifelong condition - a case of `Abandon hope all ye who enter here'. Now, thanks to Profes...sor Roy Taylor, there is a way out to reversing the fastest growing disease in the world. After years of studying the causes of diabetes, in 2006 Professor Taylor and his team at Newcastle University finally found the `missing piece in the scientific jigsaw', a Eureka moment that launched a multi-million-dollar trial involving 280 type 2 diabetics from around the United Kingdom. In 2018 they published the remarkable, life-changing results. In Life Without Diabetes, Professor Taylor presents the definitive guide to understanding and reversing type 2. In simple and accessible language, he deconstructs the complex workings of the body as an energy system, illustrates how our modern lifestyle has interfered with the mechanics of this process and offers a surprisingly simple solution, in the form of the 3-step program he developed with his team of researchers, also known as the `Newcastle Diet'. Professor Taylor's aim is to transform the treatment of type 2 diabetes across the globe. In this book, he not only points anyone with type 2 towards a return to full health, but offers practical and proven advice on how to enjoy life and remain free of the disease - for good.

            A leading neurologist lifts the lid on head pain - a fascinating, accessible guide to headaches, with some practical advice along the way - from what causes migraines to how sinus pain happens to whether we should just reach for the painkillers and ignore the root causes. This is... Why We Sleep for the head. There is nothing novel about headache. Since time immemorial, humans have suffered in its grip. Medieval Persia was a hotbed of intense debate over how to avoid and subsequently cure headache, and castor oil seemed to be prevalent as a remedy. Thankfully we have moved on. Darwin became a recluse because of his headaches, but on the bright side, this gave him more time to stay at home and think about the origin of the species. I doubt any modern human sees their headache as being a blessing, but it is trying to tell you something. How do we find out what that is? What is the point of pain?

            Why do some ideas take off - and others fail to spread? Why are some diseases predictable, and others swamped in uncertainty? And what about the outbreaks that never happen at all? A passenger getting on a plane in Hong Kong can spark an outbreak of flu in Mexico. Someone default...s on their mortgage in Florida, and a financial panic kindles in London. One individual can reach an audience of millions with a single tweet: we live in a world that's more connected than ever before. But even as we see our lives being shaped by the spread of ideas, trends - and even diseases - we sometimes struggle to grasp how it actually works. Outbreaks seem to be driven by randomness and hidden laws, and in order to understand them, we need to start thinking like mathematicians. Here, epidemiologist Adam Kucharski reveals how new mathematical approaches are transforming what we know about contagion - from the revolutionary initiatives that helped tackle gun violence in Chicago to the truth behind the spread of fake news. And along the way, he'll explain how happiness and depression can spread through our friendship networks, why some predictions go badly wrong (and that might not be a bad thing), and why most people are less popular than their friends.
