    10 Seconds of Courage
    'An inspiring story delivered with her signature humour. I highly recommend it.' - Turia Pitt We are all fighting for something and could use a short burst of courage to help face our fears. Not many people have the opportunity to learn about life from a living martial arts Master like Nadine did, so through sharing her story she is able to pass on the life-altering lessons she was taught. These are universally touching ideas of courage, fear, resilience, self doubt and belief, overcoming adversity, sacrifice, illness and the bravery to seize opportunities. People share similar fears and pains. Most are afraid of illness or death (for themselves or their loved ones), they are afraid of failing (especially publicly) but also are scared of never living up to their potential for a full life. 10 Seconds of Courage will provide inspiration and easy to use practical solutions for facing our fears, big or small. Concepts such as the 'I Am', 'Why Not You' and 'Emotional Volume Control' are simple but have a profound effect on changing your thinking for the better.
    These are conversation starters and form the basis for an online Community of Courage where people can share how they use their 10 Seconds of Courage and all the themes from the book.

  • 10 Things Girls Need Most
    10 Things Girls Need Most
    A POWERFUL NEW BOOK FROM STEVE BIDDULPH Steve Biddulph writes: '10 Things Girls Need Most is a revolution. For 40 years I've worked with parents in groups - and it is so much fun and so moving that I would love to do that with every parent in the world. But I can't! So 10 Things Girls Need Most aims to be the next best thing. This is a special kind of book. You can read it straight through and get great ideas for raising your daughter. But it also offers something extra that can give you so much more. On many pages you will find opportunities to interact. These are very simple - just a list to tick, or a couple of questions to respond to. These interactive tasks immediately get you thinking about your own life, your family and, of course, your daughter. 10 Things Girls Need Most is a dual gift. It provides the very best information that we have about girls growing up today - and, alongside, are interactive tasks and self-exploration practices will help you to put that into practice. ' How does the content differ from Steve Biddulph's Raising Girls?
    SB: 'This is a whole new book on girls, and it has grown out of years of online discussions which have gone deeper and further than much of the coverage in Steve Biddulph's Raising Girls. It is a reflection of the issues that parents want to explore in more depth. Many of these are new.' Why is this called an interactive companion to Steve Biddulph's Raising Girls? SB: 'We found that parents were keen to share their experiences and concerns online. So this new book includes opportunities for parents to consider topics with more depth, courtesy of the reader-response style. The interactivity is a totally new concept. Focus groups have found it quite profound - as there are opportunities for the reader to respond to questions in the text. In this way it is a companion to Steve Biddulph's Raising Girls, exploring many of the same areas but with the added dimension of parent involvement and response to the questions. Steve Biddulph says: ' The aim of this book is twofold. Firstly, to help you understand how daughters grow and thrive, and to be confident in raising your own.
    To lay down the foundations of good mental health early in your daughter's life, and to keep her strong all the way through. And secondly, to enlist you in the new wave of feminism, fighting against a world that is so toxic to our kids.' 'We have the potential to change the world our daughters face. Girls are being exploited. We need to challenge the companies worldwide that profit from making girls insecure and compliant through manipulative marketing. 'This book helps parents understand how we can win back girlhood - happy, wild and free. It's the core of individuality and self-belief - and is the new feminism that we want for our daughters. 'It tackles the most important mental health risk in the world today - the harm that is being inflicted on girls and young women. The exploitation of it starts with babyhood and rockets through primary school and into the teens.'

  • 10% Happier
    10% Happier
    10% HAPPIER is a spiritual book written for - and by - someone who would otherwise never read a spiritual book. It is both a deadly serious and seriously funny look at mindfulness and meditation as the next big public health revolution. Dan Harris always believed the restless, relentless, impossible-to-satisfy voice in his head was one of his greatest assets. How else can you climb the ladder in an ultra-competitive field like TV news except through nonstop hand-wringing and hyper vigilance? For a while, his strategy worked. Harris anchored national broadcasts and he covered wars. Then he hit the brakes, and had a full-blown panic attack live on the air. What happened next was completely unforeseen. Through a bizarre series of events - involving a disgraced evangelical pastor, a mysterious self-help guru and a fateful gift from his wife - Harris stumbled upon something that helped him tame the voice in his head: meditation. At first, he was deeply suspicious. He had long associated meditation with bearded swamis and unwashed hippies.
    But when confronted with mounting scientific evidence that just a few minutes a day can literally rewire the brain for focus,happiness, and reduced reactivity, Harris took a deep dive. He spent years mingling with scientists,executives and marines on the front lines of a quiet revolution that has the potential to reshape society. He became a daily meditator, and even found himself on a ten-day, silent meditation retreat, which was simultaneously the best and worst experience he'd ever had. Harris's life was not transformed into a parade of rainbows and unicorns, but he did gain a passion for daily meditation. While the book itself is a narrative account of Dan's conversion amid the harried and decidedly non-Zen world of the newsroom, it concludes with a section for the novice on how to get started.

    Admissions
    Henry Marsh has spent a lifetime operating on the surgical frontline. There have been exhilarating highs and devastating lows, but his love for the practice of neurosurgery has never wavered. Prompted by his retirement from his full-time job in the NHS, and through his continuing work in Nepal and Ukraine, Henry has been forced to reflect more deeply about what forty years spent handling the human brain has taught him. Moving between encounters with patients in his London hospital, to those he treats in the more extreme circumstances of his work abroad, Henry faces up to the overwhelming burden of responsibility that can come with trying to reduce human suffering. Unearthing memories of his early days as a medical student, and the experiences that shaped him as a young surgeon, he explores the difficulties of a profession that deals in probabilities rather than certainties, and where the consequences of your decisions alter not just the life of a patient but also of those around them. The overpowering human urge to prolong life can often come at a great cost to those who are living it, and to those who love them.
    In this searing, provocative and deeply personal memoir, the bestselling author of Do No Harm finds new purpose in his own life as he approaches the end of his professional career and a fresh understanding of what matters to us all in the end.
