Fire on All Sides
Fire on All Sides
For many of us who suffer from depression or anxiety, the simple act of endurance, of having to appear 'normal', is a daunting, painful and heroic task.
Getting out of bed, packing the kids off to school, showing up for work, preparing dinner... These can be astonishing achievements when it sometimes takes a superhuman effort simply to stand upright.
How do you keep going? How do you do what you do, day in, day out, conforming to people's idea of you and functioning in the way society expects you to, when all you want to do is disappear and hide?
In Fire On All Sides, Rhodes attempts to find how to make the unbearable bearable in the most exposing circumstances imaginable. As he embarks on a gruelling five-month concert tour, performing in front of thousands of people, the tortuous voices in his mind his constant companions, he has no choice but to face these wild, mad ramblings head on.
Luckily, there is the music. There is always the music. Bach, Chopin, Beethoven - they are his holy grail, his mechanism for survival. Just.
This is an important, urgent book. It's about going through your day feeling like you can't find a way out of the crazy, it's about not setting the happiness bar too high, it's about accepting the messy imperfection that is life.
Rhodes explodes the myths surrounding depression, anxiety and stress - the plagues of our society - into a million pieces, then sticks them back together again with his characteristic thought-provoking, laser sharp and humorous style.
The really good news? It's going to be OK. Just.

'Being identical twin sisters, we have a passion (teetering on obsession) for finding out what's different about us. Twins are a great constant for medical research and we became the 'chief guinea pigs' for the British Gut project where we discovered that despite us having 100% the same DNA our guts have only 40% the same microbiota, which could explain why our bodies behave so differently. Thus our 'gut journey' began.'

Gut the Inside Story of Our Bodys Most Under Rated Organ
Gut the Inside Story of Our Bodys Most Under Rated Organ
The key to living a happier, healthier life is inside us. Our gut is almost as important to us as our brain or our heart, yet we know very little about how it works. In Gut, Giulia Enders shows that rather than the utilitarian and - let's be honest - somewhat embarrassing body part we imagine it to be, it is one of the most complex, important, and even miraculous parts of our anatomy. And scientists are only just discovering quite how much it has to offer; new research shows that gut bacteria can play a role in everything from obesity and allergies to Alzheimer's. Beginning with the personal experience of illness that inspired her research, and going on to explain everything from the basics of nutrient absorption to the latest science linking bowel bacteria with depression, Enders has written an entertaining, informative health handbook. Gut definitely shows that we can all benefit from getting to know the wondrous world of our inner workings. In this charming book, young scientist Giulia Enders takes us on a fascinating tour of our insides. Her message is simple - if we treat our gut well, it will treat us well in return. But how do we do that? And why do we need to?
Find out in this surprising, and surprisingly funny, exploration of the least understood of our organs.

Heal Your Headache
Heal Your Headache
A groundbreaking and controversial work. HEAL YOUR HEADACHE starts with the fresh insight that nearly all headaches are migraines - that, in fact, a migraine is not a type of headache at all but the built-in mechanism that causes headaches of all kinds. Whether one is prone to crippling "migraines" or only the occasional garden-variety pounder, the underlying causes are the same. This leads to a second insight: both headache sufferers and the doctors they turn to are invariably wrong in how they understand, diagnose and treat the problem. With this knowledge in hand, John Hopkins neurologist Dr David Bucholz takes headache sufferers out of the vicious circle of misdiagnosis and rebound and put them in charge of their lives with a simple, practical, patient-proven 3 - step system. Step One: Avoid quick fixes - treating the symptoms and not the cause can lead to a cycle of escalating pain. Step Two: Eliminate your headache triggers, especially easy-to-control dietary ones like caffeine, chocolate, MSG, and aged cheese. Step Three: raise your headache threshold - when necessary, use preventive medication.
One, two, three - add together and for nearly all sufferers, any headache problem can be dealt with, no matter how acute. Every sufferer of headaches or migraines would benefit from this book.

How to Have Feminist Sex A Fairly Graphic Guide
How to Have Feminist Sex A Fairly Graphic Guide
We talk about feminism in the workplace and we talk about dating after #MeToo, but women's own patriarchal conditioning can be the hardest enemy to defeat. When it comes to our sex lives, few of us are free of niggling fears and body image insecurities. Rather than enjoying and exploring our bodies uninhibited, we worry about our bikini lines, bulging tummies and whether we're doing it 'right'.

Flo broaches everything from faking it to consent, stress to kink, and how losing your virginity isn't so different to eating your first chocolate croissant. Her mission is to get more people talking openly about what they do and don't want from every romantic encounter.
