            Reading this book is like coming home from a bad date and finding the person who knows you best in the world sitting on your couch, ready to pour you a glass of wine and give you a hug. --Kristen Roupenian, author of Cat Person The wildly funny, occasionally heartbreaking interna...tionally bestselling memoir about growing up, growing older, and learning to navigate friendships, jobs, loss, and love along the ride When it comes to the trials and triumphs of becoming an adult, journalist and former Sunday Times columnist Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all. In her memoir, she vividly recounts falling in love, finding a job, getting drunk, getting dumped, realizing that Ivan from the corner shop might just be the only reliable man in her life, and that absolutely no one can ever compare to her best girlfriends. Everything I Know About Love is about bad dates, good friends and--above all else-- realizing that you are enough. Glittering with wit and insight, heart and humor, Dolly Alderton's unforgettable debut weaves together personal stories, satirical observations, a series of lists, recipes, and other vignettes that will strike a chord of recognition with women of every age--making you want to pick up the phone and tell your best friends all about it. Like Bridget Jones' Diary but all true, Everything I Know About Love is about the struggles of early adulthood in all its terrifying and hopeful uncertainty.

            What controls our sex lives? Our brains. Yet there is surprisingly little research into the ways our brains influence our sex drive. Research mainly takes place when something goes wrong through brain injury or disease, offering extraordinary insights into how the brain works. In... Sex in the Brain, clinical neuropsychologist Amee Baird takes readers on an entertaining and informative tour of the sexiest bits of the human brain. Spiced with real case studies, the book reveals pathologies no longer hidden in medical journals or the bedrooms of people whose sex lives are undergoing dramatic change, for better and worse. In the style of popular neurology guru Oliver Sacks, Baird captures the humanity and complexity of patients, even when their neurological challenges have rendered them permanently or temporarily unlikeable. Drawing from true stories, this revealing and sometimes heartbreaking book unfolds a better understanding of the links between brain function and our sexual selves.

            In an age that mashes internet porn with Tinder and arranged marriage, in an age in which everything (sexuality, gender, consent) seems fluid, what does the landscape of love look like, really? And how are the seismic jolts in the ways we negotiate sex and romance affecting women...? In the third book in Samantha Trenoweth's series of essays by contemporary women, contributors ask whether the Tinderverse has killed romance; are women, who are increasingly powerful in all sorts of areas of their lives, more or less empowered in their personal relationships than they were a decade ago; and do women actually have more choices or fewer? Better than Sex assembles impressions of the contemporary love landscape, from outspoken, witty, provocative writers, including Roxane Gay, Zan Rowe, Emily Maguire, Jamila Rizvi, Lucy Le Masurier, Susan Chenery, Rosie Waterland, Fiona McGregor, Rachel Hills, Zoe Norton Lodge, Van Badham and Ann Friedman.

            Love by Numbers: Unlocking the Secrets of Sexual Attraction

            There are few topics more guaranteed to stir human emotions than romance. Whether you are in a wonderful relationship, have loved and lost, given up in frustration or are simply still looking, it's a fair bet that love, or the pursuit of it, is never that far from your thoughts. ...Success in finding the 'perfect' partner sometimes seem to depend more on timing and luck than skill. On the other hand, there are those fortunate enough to be blessed with such good looks that they have no difficulty in finding dates, while others wistfully contemplate if there is anybody out there who has any interest in them at all. But is there perhaps more to it than that? Are we pre- programmed to find our allotted place somewhere between Cleopatra and Quasimodo or are there loop-holes in the statistics of sex? Statistician John Croucher could not resist the temptation to delve into the evident association between romance and figures, mainly by unearthing captivating survey results from research carried out on amorous activities. Dr Croucher uses these to wrest many wonderful underlying secrets and rules from Venus' sometimes jealous arms. The result is this fascinating survey of the human impulses that drive our strategies for, and attitudes and responses to dating, relationships and sex. A dating handbook it is not, but you know what they say - a little knowledge can go a long, long way...

            On Lust & Longing brings two of Blanche D'Alpuget's prominent works together. When On Lust was first published it caused a media sensation: d'Alpuget wrote of a pillar of society who had molested children and of events that ended in mystery. She revealed all. On Longing caused a ...similar sensation, for different reasons. D'Alpuget dared to write that she loved and had inspired love in a man already adored by the public. Here are the raw and timeless themes of the power and powerlessness inherent to lust, love, loss and death.

            A practical workbook from the New York Times bestselling author of Come As You Are that will radically transform your sex life. In Come As You Are, sex educator Dr Emily Nagoski revealed the true story behind female sexuality, uncovering the little-known science of what makes us ...tick and, more importantly, how and why. Now, in The Come As You Are Workbook, she offers practical tips and techniques that will help women to have the mind-blowing sex that they deserve (and that men have been having all along). This collection of worksheets, journalling prompts, illustrations, and diagrams is an engaging companion for anyone who wants to further their understanding of their own bodies and sexuality. Praise for Come As You Are- 'Nagoski's book deserves plaudits for the rare achievement of merging pop science and the sexual self-help genre in prose that's not insufferably twee ... Come As You Are offers up hard facts on the science of arousal and desire in a friendly and accessible way.' -The Guardian (UK) Praise for Come As You Are- 'This is the best book I have ever read about sexual desire and why some couples just stop having sex, and what they can do about it. Come As You Are is an absolutely necessary guide for all couples who want to understand the ups and downs in their own sex life. It is a must read!' -John Gottman, PhD, author of The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work Praise for Come As You Are- 'Emily Nagoski has written one of the most important books about sex any woman (or anybody else) could ever pick up, full of insights that are both fascinating and deeply useful. Synthesising new research and theory about sexuality with old-school sex-positive information of the sort you didn't learn in sex ed (unless, perhaps, you are a Unitarian, or Scandinavian, or lucky enough to be in Dr. Nagoski's class), I guarantee Come As You Are will open minds and change lives.' -Carol Queen, PhD, Founding director, Center for Sex & Culture
