            Celebratory, joyous and moving, this is a book about the profoundly healing, curative qualities of dogs - and how we need dogs in our lives more than ever. Good Dog is about the power of canine friendship - in particular the profoundly healing role that dogs can play in our lives... - a celebration of the extraordinary creatures who change - and sometimes even save - our lives. Covering the science and history of our extraordinary relationship with dogs, and focusing on the role that dogs can play in enriching and improving our mental and emotional health and our lives, Good Dog is a celebration of the most remarkable cross-species friendship on the planet. Good Dog focuses on ten powerful, personal stories of dogs and their owners, from Missy the pug, who has allowed 10-year-old autistic Cody to live his best life to Darcy, who spends precious time in a children's hospice; from Pip, who helps her teenage owner manage her diabetes, to Jingles, who works in therapy and rehab at a prison.

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

            Panic, depression, sorrow, guilt, disgrace, obsession, sleeplessness, low confidence, loneliness, agoraphobia . . . Dr Claire Weekes knew how to treat them, but was dismissed as underqualified and overly populist by the psychiatric establishment. In a radical move, she had gone d...irectly to the people. Her international bestseller Self Help for Your Nerves, first published in 1962 and still in print, helped tens of millions of people to overcome all of these, and continues to do so. Weekes pioneered an anxiety treatment that is now at the cutting edge of modern psychotherapies. Her early explanation of fear, and its effect on the nervous system, is state of the art. Psychologists use her method, neuroscientists study the interaction between different fear circuits in the brain, and many psychiatrists are revisiting the mind-body connection that was the hallmark of her unique work. Face, accept, float, let time pass- hers was the invisible hand that rewrote the therapeutic manual. This understanding of the biology of fear could not be more contemporary - 'acceptance' is the treatment du jour, and all mental-health professionals explain the phenomenon of fear in the same way she did so many years ago. However, most of them are unaware of the debt they have to a woman whose work has found such a huge public audience. This book is the first to tell that story, and to tell Weekes' own remarkable tale, of how a mistaken diagnosis of tuberculosis led to heart palpitations, beginning her fascinating journey to a practical treatment for anxiety that put power back in the hands of the individual. 'With Judith Hoare's The Woman Who Cracked the Anxiety Code, we have a chance to learn about Weekes's varied life and, as important, become reacquainted with her work ... A splendid tribute to Claire Weekes - a tribute long overdue.' -Sally Satel, Wall Street Journal 'In her biography of Weekes, veteran journalist Judith Hoare has rescued the Australian doctor from obscurity and place

            The answer to all questions about ageing and nutrition. When science journalist Bas Kast collapsed with chest pains when he was only 40, he was faced with an existential question- had he ruined his health with junk food? He decided to radically change his eating habits in order t...o heal himself. But what is really good for you? This was the beginning of a journey of discovery into the latest research into ageing and nutrition - and it lasted several years. What do people with a particularly long life span eat? How can you lose weight efficiently? Are afflictions typical of old age avoidable? Can you 'eat yourself young' with certain foods? Much of what we think is healthy can even be harmful. Bas Kast has filtered out from thousands of sometimes contradictory studies scientifically founded findings about what really makes for healthy eating.

            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.
