Many of the activities we take for granted are in fact contrary to a healthy lifestyle. In this groundbreaking book, long-held beliefs are exploded by new science: drink...ing eight glasses a day is too much; breakfast isn't the most important meal of the day; smartphones are not making us all depressed. Bringing to bear the latest research in psychology, nutrition, biology, and physics, Dr Stuart Farrimond unearths the facts behind the fads, and provides take-away advice on every area of our lives - and all delivered in Dr Stu's trademark style; approachable, authoritative, and above all, entertaining. The Science of Living debunks pseudo-science and delivers only the facts. One day - one body - over 160 examples of science in action.

            'I'm a dad and I'm scared.' Charting John Kirwan's experiences as a father, and incorporating voices of young people today, Stand By Me examines issues around teenage mental health, with a focus on depression and anxiety. It is intended as a useful guide for parents, caregivers a...nd teachers - anyone concerned about the wellbeing of young people in their care. Like All Blacks Don't Cry, it has an emphasis on hopefulness and living positively. Stand By Me is JK's second collaboration with writer Margie Thomson, and draws on the expertise of Dr Elliot Bell and Kirsty Louden-Bell, clinical psychologists from the Otago Medical School. JK confronts an array of questions about parenting and his own children, and looks at case studies of teenagers who have been diagnosed with mental health issues including anxiety and depression. In their own words, the young people interviewed reflect on their treatment and progress, and consider how these experiences have shaped them as they face forward into their adult lives.

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

            The Woman Who Cracked the Anxiety Code: The extraordinary life of Dr Claire Weekes (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            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
