            One doctor's testament to the importance of listening - truly listening - to women and their medical experiences of pregnancy and childbirth. Although there are countless books aimed at expectant mothers and fathers, on subjects from prenatal nutrition to birthing methods, there ...is a lack of works that attempt to illuminate, unpack, and chronicle the complex, potentially life-and-death truth of this fundamental human experience. High Risk fills that gap. From an expert in maternal-foetal medicine - the subspecialty of obstetrics that concerns high-risk pregnancies - here is a timely and unflinching account of all that pregnancy, labour, and birth can entail. As an outspoken champion of women's health, a mother of four, and a humane, wry, and altogether remarkable writer, Dr Chavi Eve Karkowsky tells of miracles and joy, but also of challenge and loss - illustrating the complexity of reproduction and the health services that surround it. With historical insight and journalistic verve, she unpacks what is involved for women, for a family, and for us as a society, and explores what's at risk when these aspects of life remain clouded in mystery and misinformation.

            Unlock your inner artist and learn how to draw the human body in this beautifully illustrated art book by celebrated artist and teacher Sarah Simblet. In Anatomy for the Artist, Sarah reveals the extraordinary structure of the human body. Combining specially-commissioned photogra...phs of models with historical and contemporary works of art and her own dynamic life drawing, she leads us inside the human body to map its skeleton, muscle groups, and body systems. Detailed line drawings superimposed over photographs reveal the links between what the body looks like and its internal construction. Six drawing classes show how to observe different parts of the body - from top to toe - and give expert guidance on how to draw them. Inspirational master classes on famous works, ranging from a Michelangelo study to a Degas painting, show how artists have depicted the human body over the centuries. Each master class includes a photograph of a model holding the same pose as in the painting, to highlight details of anatomy and show how the artist has interpreted them. Understanding anatomy is the key to drawing the human body successfully. As well as being the perfect reference, Anatomy for the Artist will inspire you to find a model, reach for your pencil, and start drawing.

            How is it that a baboon and a blob of slime mould instinctively know what to eat, yet humans can't seem to figure it out? When and why did we lose the basic knowledge to intuit what foods our body needs, and in what proportions?

            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?
