            Forget the old concept of the 9-5. Companies around the world are redesigning the work week to increase efficiency, health and happiness in their workers. A growing number of businesses are shortening their working week to address problems with low productivity, poor mental healt...h and unequal working opportunities. Workers are still paid the same salary for a four-day week and the results are revolutionary. In Shorter, best-selling author Alex Pang studies these trailblazers where managers are reporting their teams to be: - More creative in their problem solving - Happier and with lower stress and anxiety and cases of burnout - More productive Pang will reveal step-by-step how they have gone about making these changes, the challenges and solutions and, most importantly, how you can do the same.

            '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.

            Kid Food: The Challenge of Feeding Children in a Highly Processed World

            It has never been so difficult to raise a healthy eater in America. Along with the picky eating and public tantrums that have forever tested the limits of parental patience, today's parents also fend off sophisticated assaults from outside their kitchens: unhealthy food-marketing... campaigns aimed at kids; misleading product labels aimed at parents; and a school-food program so starved for cash that it sells name-brand junk food to grade school students. In Kid Food, nationally recognized food writer Bettina Elias Siegel (New York Times, The Lunch Tray) explores the cultural delusions and industry deceptions that have made it all but impossible to raise a healthy eater in America. Combining first-person reporting with the hard-won understanding of a food advocate and parent, it presents a startling portrayal of the current food landscape for children -- and the role of parents in navigating it. Siegel also lifts the curtain on shadowy food industry front-groups, including clever marketing techniques that intentionally confuse parents about a product's nutritional value. (Did you know that made with real fruit may mean a product is less healthy?) What emerges is the industry's divide-and-conquer strategy, one that stokes kids' desire for junk food while breaking down parents' ability to act as responsible gatekeepers. For anyone who frets over what their child is eating, Kid Food offers both essential reading and a deeper understanding of the factors at play in their child's food environment. Written in the same engaging and relatable voice that has made The Lunch Tray a trusted resource for parents for almost a decade, Kid Food offers a well of compassion -- and expertise -- for those fighting the good fight at home.
