            '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.

            The Woman Who Cracked the Anxiety Code: The extraordinary life of Dr Claire Weekes

            The Woman Who Cracked the Anxiety Code: The extraordinary life of Dr Claire Weekes (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Hoare, Judith

            Dr Weekes is the invisible giant on whose shoulders many psychiatrists and psychologists now stand. Her extraordinary story has never been told because she was completely ignored by professionals in the field, who had had no answers to the anxiety state and no understanding of th...e scholarship that lay behind her work. Yet her books, which sold for a handful of dollars, worked. The mail from grateful readers was unceasing and unmanageable, and the media competed for interviews with her. Dr Weekes's approach to treating anxiety proved state-of-the-art, and her books still change lives. Her work benefitted tens of millions of people, according to one of the foremost experts in anxiety, Dr David Barlow. How was it that she came to have such a unique understanding of the anxiety state, which was an epidemic hiding in plain sight? Cracking the anxiety code was a long, isolated, individual mission. It started when a terrified young woman, about to earn her first doctorate, was standing on a London wharf in 1929 feeling she simply couldn't go on. It ended with her changing the trajectory of global treatment.

            We all have memory lapses, at any age. But memory change is a reality over the whole of our lives. It's common to feel worried about memory but how do you know if memory difficulties are normal or the beginnings of dementia? Does your ability to remember change as you get older? ...Can dementia be prevented? Where do you go if you have concerns about memory? And what can we do to get the most out of our memory abilities? We can all become more skilled in managing memory, becoming more confident that we can and will remember. This book explains how memory works and changes that can occur as we get older. It explains the sort of health, attitude and lifestyle factors that can lead to fluctuation in memory and provides practical tips to minimise their effects on memory. The book examines memory during menopause and includes easy-to-follow suggestions for maintaining brain health based on current research about dementia. Memory-Wise focuses primarily on the everyday remembering that is such an important part of our lives. Every hour of the day we're calling on memory. Our capacity to respond to these demands depends on our state of mind at the time, on our health and to some extent on our age. This book will help you to understand and to nurture your own memory.

            In Use It or Lose It Paul McIntyre, host of ABC Radio's 'Medical Matters', sorts the fact from the fiction and reveals the practical measures we can all take to keep our body in good shape and our brain sharp and alert. Because when it comes to positive ageing, our physical and m...ental health are one and the same. Believe it or not, preventing a disease as serious as dementia is as much about pursuing interests and having a flourishing social life as it is about standard health prescriptions. Good nutrition, regular exercise, relaxation, social interaction and healthy activities are paramount for your body and your brain and your emotional outlook as you get older. With key advice from experts in diet, nutrition, dementia research and psychology, and lots of activities and suggestions to inspire you, including some delicious health-boosting recipes, Use It or Lose It is an essential guide to remaining vital through mid-life and beyond.

            'Gabrielle Jackson's reporting for The Guardian on endometriosis helped us blow the disease out of the water , according to one leading specialist, turning what had been known as the silent disease into a major news story read by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. ...Women responded vociferously and in great numbers, showing that Gabrielle's work had tapped into a worldwide need for information on endometriosis and other women's health issues. This book could not be more timely or important.' - Katharine Viner, editor of The Guardian 'Gabrielle Jackson is a brilliant journalist and a wonderful feminist-and incapable of being dull.' - Emily Wilson, Editor of New Scientist In 2015, Guardian journalist Gabrielle Jackson wrote a piece about her own struggles with the crippling pain caused by endometriosis. It triggered such an overwhelming response that the Guardian launched a world-wide investigation into the disease. This time the response was so huge it almost crashed their website. Thousands contacted the Guardian and hundreds of thousands more read and shared the material. This was the catalyst for Gabrielle thinking more widely about women's pain and how it is viewed and treated not just by the medical profession but wider society. The stark reality is that women's pain is not taken as seriously as that of men's. We are more likely to be dismissed, fobbed off and denied treatment than men even though our bodies are vastly more complex. One of the most important things we can do to help ourselves is to understand more about how our bodies work.
