We are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast
From the bestselling author of Eating Animals and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - a brilliant, fresh take on climate change and what we can do about it Climate crisis is the single biggest threat to human survival. And it is happening right now. We all understand that time is running out - but do we truly believe it? And, caught between the seemingly unimaginable and the apparently unthinkable, how can we take the first step towards action, to arrest our race to extinction? We can begin with our knife and fork. The link between farming animals and the climate crisis is barely discussed, because giving up our meat-based diets feels like an impossible ask. But we don't have to go cold turkey. Cutting out animal products for just part of the day is enough to change the world. The task of saving the planet will involve a great reckoning with ourselves - with our all-too-human reluctance to sacrifice immediate comfort for the sake of the future. But we have done it before and we can do it again. Collective action is the way to save our home and way of life. And it all starts with what we eat, and don't eat, for breakfast. With his distinctive wit, insight and humanity, Jonathan Safran Foer presents the essential debate of our time as no one else could, bringing it to vivid and urgent life and offering us all a much-needed way out.

**The fitness and diet plan followed by NICOLE SCHERZINGER and AMANDA HOLDEN** I love Svava's technique. In all my years of training, the Viking Method is unlike anything I have ever done - Nicole Scherzinger The Viking Method is an incredible fitness plan - for me the most important thing was not just getting stronger physically but mentally. - Amanda Holden The Viking Method uses Svava's strong mental practices inspired by her Icelandic upbringing to help the reader build the lean, powerful and toned physique they desire. It'll render the reader more resilient, bolder and full of belief in themselves. Unlike other fitness and diet books, The Viking Method isn't about the external superficiality of a beach body. It's about three core pillars: thinking like a Viking, training like a Viking and eating like a Viking. Svava introduces these pillars early on in the book - along with mantras for each pillar which are connected to empowerment, mental strength and internal validation over counting calories. The book features information on eating and exercising for your hormones, detailed workout routines based around body-weight exercises illustrated with photographs, and a selection of delicious Scandi-inspired recipes such as Thor-red Salmon and Icelandic Lamb Stew.

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

Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less
Take a break and read Rest: you'll make smarter decisions, have better relationships, and be happier and more creative James Wallman, author of Stuffocation Many of us are interested in how to work better, but we don't think very much about how to rest better. Do you regularly find yourself too tired after a long day at the office to do anything other than binge TV, or scroll mindlessly through social media? Do you go on holiday and still compulsively check your email? Do you work through your lunch-break, often not even leaving the office and getting some fresh air? For most of us, overwork is the new norm, and we never truly take the time to rest and recharge. But as Silicon Valley consultant Alex Soojung-Kim Pang explains in this groundbreaking book, rest needs to be taken seriously and to be done properly, because when you rest better you work better. Drawing on emerging neuroscience, Rest is packed full of practical and easy tips for incorporating rest into our everyday: - Stopping work on a task when you know exactly what the next step is will make it easier to get started the next day, and will help you set a steady working pace - Take a long walk when you're stuck on a task; it will help stimulate new ideas and creativity - Have deliberate rest periods - scheduled into your diary - and use this time on trying a new activity such as painting or learning a language When you rest better you'll find that it won't just be your work which improves - you'll have more time for hobbies, stronger relationships and you'll sleep better, too. An incredibly timely read for my own increasingly rest-starved life. This might be the book to finally persuade us that downtime isn't in conflict with good work; rather, it's an essential ingredient of it Oliver Burkeman, Guardian

The Pioppi Diet
Lose weight and feel great with the ground-breaking Pioppi Diet - as followed by Labour MP Tom Watson who lost 7 stone and 'reversed' type-2 diabetes. 'A book which has changed my life and which has the power to change the lives of millions' Tom Watson, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party 'I am obsessed with The Pioppi Diet . . . I feel leaner, energised, definitely less bloated and more healthy. I genuinely feel like this is no longer a diet plan, it's just the way I eat' Sara Cox __________________ We are not being given the truth about our health . . . We're told to avoid saturated fats, we're marketed health food laden with sugar and we're encouraged to pound out miles at the gym. However, our chances of obesity are increasing - raising our risk of Type-2 diabetes, cancer, dementia and heart disease. Yet in the tiny Italian village of Pioppi, life is as simple as it is long and healthy. There is no gym, no supermarket, the food is delicious and they enjoy a glass of wine every evening. Now cardiologist and world-leading obesity expert Dr Aseem Malhotra and acclaimed filmmaker Donal O'Neill combine the wisdom of this remarkably long-living population with decades of nutrition and medical research to cut through dietary myths and create this easy-to-follow lifestyle plan. This isn't a diet or lifestyle, which requires saying 'no' to the things you love, or exercising for hours upon end. In just three weeks, The Pioppi Diet will help you make simple, achievable and long-lasting changes to how you eat, sleep and move - changes that all of us, no matter how busy we are, can make. Indulge in delicious food for a happier, healthier and longer life such as . . . * CREAMY CRAB and RICOTTA OMELETTE with SLICED AVOCADO * GRILLED HALLOUMI and KALE SALAD with TAHINI YOGHURT DRESSING * STEAK BURGER with MATURE CHEDDAR, TOMATO and AVOCADO * CAULIFLOWER STEAKS and CRUMBLED FETA, ZA'ATAR and CHILLI * ONE-DISH ROASTED AUBERGINE with FETA, HERBS and YOGHURT DRESSING __________________ 'A must have for every household and a must read for every medical student and doctor' Professor Dame Sue Bailey, the Chair of the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges 'Revolutionary' Richard Thompson, former physician to HRH Queen Elizabeth 'This book has the power to make millions of people healthier and happier.'

In this revelatory book, Silicon Valley consultant Alex Soojung-Kim Pang offers a way for us to be more productive and fulfilled in all areas of our lives. Working better does not mean putting in longer hours: it means working less and resting better.

Pure, White and Deadly: How Sugar Is Killing Us and What We Can Do to Stop It
Sugar. It is killing us. Why do we eat so much of it? What are its hidden dangers? In 1972, when British scientist John Yudkin first proved that sugar was bad for our health, he was ignored by the majority of the medical profession and rubbished by the food industry. We should have heeded his warning. Today, one in four adults in the UK are overweight. There is an epidemic of obese six-month-olds around the globe. Sugar consumption has tripled since the Second World War. Using everyday language and a range of scientific evidence, Professor Yudkin explores the ins and out of sugar, from the different types - is brown sugar really better than white? - to how it is hidden inside our everyday foods and how it is damaging our health. Brought up to date by childhood obesity expert Dr Robert Lustig MD, his classic expose on the hidden dangers of sugar is essential reading for anyone interested in their health, the health of their children and the health of modern society.
