Like many of us, Toni Terry has tried out every fitness and diet fad going. From gym memberships to detoxes, her characteristic determination got her through the punishing workouts and regimes. And yet, after a month or a year, she always got bored; something was missing and she wasn't quite achieving the results she'd hoped for. What changed and turned her into the social media phenomenon she is today was a whole new approach to fitness and eating well. And what was the magic ingredient? People. Feeling intimidated at the thought of working out on her own with a personal trainer, she hit on the idea of asking her friends to join her. As soon as she started exercising with friends and family, Toni not only started enjoying herself, she also grew more motivated, got the body she always wanted and felt healthier and happier than ever before. The Buddy Workout will chronicle Toni's journey from her battle with a serious back condition as a teenager, to a busy family life with world-class footballer John Terry and her passion for fitness and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Toni's easy-to-follow fitness programme includes workouts she does on a regular basis with her trainer Bradley Simmonds, and she'll also provide ideas for 5-minute workouts you can build into your busy life, top tips for keeping motivated and looking your best, as well as delicious and nutritious recipes you can share with family and friends.

We all have bad habits - whether it's a weakness for junk food, a smartphone addiction or a lack of exercise. We start the new year with good intentions to change. But change is hard. So how can we kick our bad habits - and stick with it?
According to psychologist and behaviour researcher Dr Sean Young, the answer is to stop trying to change the person, and instead change the process. In Stick with It, Dr Young draws on his own research and that of other leading experts to explain how the mind often interferes with breaking bad habits, and how we can outsmart it, increasing the likelihood of making lasting change by 200 per cent.
Packed with practical exercises and real-life case studies, Stick with It shows that it is possible to control spending, stick to a diet, exercise regularly and overcome problem behaviours - forever.
Dr Sean Young is one of the world's leading experts in the field of habit-forming. He is an acclaied psychologist and the founder and Executive Director of the UCLA Center for Digital Behavior. His research involves the study of cutting-edge ways of using social media and mobile technologies to change and predict human behaviour.

Using the theories of Alfred Adler, one of the three giants of 19th century psychology alongside Freud and Jung, it follows an illuminating conversation between a philosopher and a young man. The philosopher explains to his pupil how each of us is able to determine our own lives, free of the shackles of past experiences, doubts and the expectations of others. It's a way of thinking that's deeply liberating, allowing us to develop the courage to change, and to ignore the limitations that we and those around us can place on ourselves.
The result is a book that is both highly accessible and profound in its importance. Millions have already read and benefited from its wisdom. Now that The Courage to be Disliked has been published for the first time in English, so can you.
