            It's a belief that unites the left and right, psychologists and philosophers, writers and historians. It drives the headlines that surround us and the laws that touch our lives. And its roots sink deep into Western thought: from Machiavelli to Hobbes, Freud to Pinker, the tacit a...ssumption is that humans are bad. Humankind makes the case for a new argument: that it is realistic, as well as revolutionary, to assume that people are good. When we think the worst of others, it brings out the worst in our politics and economics too. In his long-awaited second book, international-bestselling author Rutger Bregman shows how believing in human kindness and altruism can be a new way to think - and act as the foundation for achieving true change in our society. It is time for a new view of human nature.

            When Vivek Murthy accepted the role of Surgeon General under Obama, he thought his main focus would be tackling the opioid crisis and obesity. Instead, he discovered a much larger health crisis, one that connects the sick and the seemingly well: loneliness. We live in an age stee...ped in disconnection. As a doctor, Murthy encountered people who struggled with addiction, disease, and pain, and often found loneliness at their very core. But while other illnesses can be more visible, loneliness keeps its sufferers silent. So how can we treat it, and what does it mean to live in this lonely age? This book traces Murthy's journey to find the answers. As he uncovers the global proportions of this epidemic, and explores the root causes and devastating effects of loneliness, he also finds good news. From social support groups in Okinawa, to mentoring circles in Chicago, he looks at community efforts to combat loneliness around the world and what they can teach us about doing so in our own lives. Part personal journey, part medical exploration, part social toolkit, this essential book shows how together we can learn to build a more connected, less lonely world.

            A career-ending injury takes a ballerina from the lofty heights of dance, grounding her into a life where she is forced to confront issues of fetishization, ownership, and brutality to the female body. After a devastating misstep by her dance partner changes the course of her lif...e, life as Ellen knows it comes to an abrupt halt. During her recovery, she recalls a girlhood spent in front of studio mirrors forcibly shaping her body, falling victim to eating disorders in order to retain it, and the slow break down of her body that made literally breaking it much too easy. What isn't easy is accepting a life beyond dance. To do that Ellen must come to terms with the forces that controlled her--the brutally competative world of ballet, the fetishization of the female body, and the sexual assault that led to a severe phobia. Testing how much weight her new identity can hold, embarks upon a life lived on the ground, a new career path, devotion to someone other than herself, love, and learning the delicate balance between the benefits and brutality of pushing yourself to the brink.

            A practical, user-friendly guide for women seeking focus and calm in the midst of life's storms. Overwhelmed by the demands of family, work, and multiple responsibilities, many women find themselves feeling scattered, and distracted. In this eye-opening book, co-founder and CEO o...f the Mindsight Institute Caroline Welch takes readers on a mindfulness journey to help them de-stress and cultivate inner peace. According to Welch, you do not need countless hours sitting in silence to be more present in your life - the key is to practice mindfulness wherever you are and whenever you can. The Gift of Presence guides readers in developing four innate abilities we all possess that will allow us to become more resilient and centred in our lives - even when life is throwing all that it has at us- Presence- the ability to remain firmly in the present moment; to be fully aware of what's happening as it's happening. Purpose- the personal meaning that gets us going and gives direction to our lives. Pivoting- an openness to change that allows you to switch direction if that is what is needed. Pacing- the awareness that it is impossible to do everything we want or need to do all at once; the ability to take it life one step at a time. This life-changing book reveals that you already hold in your hands the keys to a more harmonious life - you simply need to look within. 'The Gift of Presence is a gift for us all - filled with practical insights and fascinating science about the power of mindfulness. By interviewing over one hundred women from diverse backgrounds, Caroline Welch has gathered real life examples of how being present enriches our lives, allows us to find purpose and meaning, to recharge and renew ourselves, and to pivot when we need to course-correct. Well-written and wise, it's a must-read for women of all ages.' -Arianna Huffington, founder of HuffPost and founder & CEO of Thrive Global

            Our understanding of what makes a family has undergone a revolution in the last few decades, from same-sex parenthood to surrogacy and IVF. But what has the impact been on children? In We Are Family, Professor Susan Golombok visits lesbian mothers, gay fathers, single parents, co...-parents, trans parents, surrogates, and donors, and, more importantly, their children, to find out if they are as well-adjusted, happy, and emotionally stable as children from traditional nuclear families. And she discovers that the answer is yes - and sometimes even more so. Susan's work at the Centre for Family Research at Cambridge proves that any family set-up can provide a loving, secure home for a child - although, inevitably, the children from these families will often face prejudiced attitudes from others. Since the 1970s, when she was first drawn to this area of research after reading about lesbian mothers whose children were being removed from their care, Susan has worked tirelessly to challenge outdated attitudes and prevent families being split up for no good reason. This book tells the stories of those families - their struggles and their triumphs - while celebrating love and family in all its wonderful variations.
