              The Better Half: On the Genetic Superiority of Women
               

              The Better Half: On the Genetic Superiority of Women (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Here are some facts: Women live longer than men. Women have stronger immune systems. They are less likely to suffer from learning and developmental disabilities, and are better at fighting cancer and surviving famine. Women are simply stronger than men at every stage of life, tho...ugh we are taught the opposite. But why? This question haunted Dr. Sharon Moalem throughout his career - when he was treating premature babies in the neonatal intensive care unit; when he was recruiting the elderly for neurogenetic studies; when he was tending to HIV-positive orphans in Thailand. He couldn't understand why men were consistently less likely to thrive. And then it all clicked into place: two X chromosomes offer a survival advantage. With clear, captivating prose that weaves together eye-opening research, case studies, and diverse examples -- from the behaviour of honeybees to the fate of the Donner party -- and experiences from his personal life and his own patients, The Better Half explains why genetic females triumph over males when it comes to resiliency, intellect, stamina, immunity and much more. It also calls for a reconsideration of our male-centric, one-size-fits-all view of medical studies and even how we prescribe medications - a view that still sees women through the lens of men. Revolutionary and yet utterly convincing, The Better Half will make you see humanity and the survival of our species anew.

              Last year, Scarlett Curtis and 52 inspirational women wrote an extraordinary anthology on what feminism means to them. The book went on to be a cultural phenomenon and turned the world Pink. This year, it's Blue. We are living in the middle of a mental health epidemic and we have... a choice- we can be floored by it - or we can start to make a difference. Here are the extraordinary people making that difference. Other People Don't Feel Blue (and other lies) is a collection of words from those who have suffered through the worst, and know what it's like to fight to feel better. This isn't just a book. It's a shout, a scream that cuts above the noise and lets everyone know they are not alone. Funny, sad, clever, relatable it will be a shining example of the power of words to make us all feel better.

              Award-winning Speak author Laurie Halse Anderson's New York Times bestselling poetic memoir and call to action, which garnered eight starred reviews! Bestselling author Laurie Halse Anderson is known for the unflinching way she writes about, and advocates for, survivors of sexual... assault. Now, inspired by her fans and enraged by how little in our culture has changed since her groundbreaking novel Speak was first published twenty years ago, she has written a critically acclaimed poetry memoir that is as vulnerable as it is rallying, as timely as it is timeless. In free verse, Anderson shares reflections, rants, and calls to action woven among deeply personal stories from her life that she's never written about before. Praised as captivating, powerful, and essential by critics, this searing and soul-searching memoir is a denouncement of our society's failures and a love letter to all the people with the courage to say #MeToo and #TimesUp, whether aloud, online, or only in their own hearts. SHOUT speaks truth to power in a loud, clear voice--and once you hear it, it is impossible to ignore.

              Do you know what your clothes say about you? What we wear is a visual expression of our inner selves. Our clothes affect how we feel about ourselves and how people see us. How you dress matters. In Dress Your Best Life, fashion psychologist Dawnn Karen reveals why we choose the c...lothes we do and explains how to dress to match or lift your mood. As a qualified therapist, designer, fashion PR and former model, Karen understands better than anyone the intimate relationship between what you wear and how you feel.

Drawing on cutting edge research and real-life case studies, Karen shows you how to harness the power of clothes to change your life. The book will teach you how to: - match or lift your mood with your clothes - reduce anxiety through colour choices - maintain your cultural identity - project power at home and work Enter the world of fashion psychology and Karen will help take your look - and your life - to the next level. Dawnn Karen is a pioneer in the Fashion Psychology Field. She holds a master's degree in counselling psychology from Columbia University's Teaching College and she is a qualified therapist. She is a former model and fashion public relations representative and designer.
