Cured: The Remarkable Science of Spontaneous Healing
Against better advice, Dr Jeffrey Rediger, a Harvard Medical Faculty member, has spent nearly 20 years investigating so-called medical miracles. Here, he unveils the science behind 'spontaneous' healing and lays out the physical and mental principles of recovery, through breath-taking stories of remission. Long after she's supposed to be dead, a woman with aggressive pancreatic cancer finds herself cured. A teenage girl suddenly and unexpectedly overcomes the cerebral palsy she's had since birth. An 85-year-old man stuns doctors when his CT scan shows that the tumours on his kidneys have inexplicably vanished. What can we learn from these incredible, yet true, case studies? Dr Rediger offers clear, practical advice on how we can improve our health, from diet and relaxation to a positive mindset when facing illness. Cured is a fascinating and insightful book about how we can harness our body's natural resilience to take control of our health.

The Other Side of Happiness: Embracing a More Fearless Approach to Living
'Pain is bad, right? In this fascinating book, Brock Bastian will convince you otherwise. Drawing on both vivid everyday examples and surprising laboratory findings, he shows how pain, suffering, and struggle give us pleasure, make us kinder, focus our thoughts, and give our life meaning' Paul Bloom, author of Against Empathy In today's culture, happiness has become the new marker of success, while hardships are viewed as personal weaknesses, or problems to be fixed. We increasingly try to eradicate pain through medication and by insulating ourselves from risk and offence, despite being the safest generation to have ever lived. Yet in his research, renowned social psychologist Brock Bastian has found that suffering and sadness are neither antithetical to happiness nor incidental to it: they are a necessary ingredient for emotional well-being. Drawing on psychology, neuroscience and internationally acclaimed findings from Bastian's own lab, The Other Side of Happiness encourages us to take a more fearless approach to living. The most thrilling moments of our lives are often balanced on a knife edge between pleasure and pain, whether it is finding your true love, holding your new-born for the first time, finishing a marathon or even plunging into an icy sea. This is because pain and the threat of loss quite literally increase our capacity for happiness, as Bastian reveals, making us stronger, more resilient, more connected to other people and more attuned to what truly matters. Pain even makes us more mindful, since in our darkest moments we are especially focused and aware of the world around us. Our addiction to positivity and the pursuit of pleasure is actually making us miserable. Brock Bastian shows that, without some pain, we have no real way to achieve and appreciate the kind of happiness that is true and transcendent. 'Brock Bastian skilfully shatters the zeitgeist of positive thinking, showing how struggle and suffering are vital elements of a life well lived' Adam Grant, author of ORIGINALS and OBTION B with Sheryl Sandberg 'If you're tired of all the simple minded books telling you to just cheer up and be happy, this is the book for you!' Roy F. Baumeister, author of WILLPOWER: REDISCOVERING THEGREATEST HUMAN STRENGTH 'Explains why hardship sometimes yields richer lives that are laden with meaning, deep social connections, and unexpected bliss. A beautifully written and important book that should be required reading for anyone who's ever wondered why well-being so oftenflourishes in unexpected places' Adam Alter, author of DRUNK TANK PINK
