It's been written about in Elle magazine and the Telegraph, mentioned in Forbes and joked about on the Tonight show - a sure sign that something has entered the cultural zeitgeist. Now for the millions of women unable to reach orgasm, or for those who want to improve their sex lives, here is a groundbreaking nutrition and exercise plan to bring women to orgasm for the first time - and every time they have sex! The Orgasmic Diet, by Marrena Lindberg, is designed to regulate a woman's brain chemistry and body functioning and bring her to mind-blowing orgasm. It achieves this through four easy-to-adapt elements including: a diet low in carbohydrates that avoids 'orgasm killers' like refined sugar and caffeine; high doses of fish oils, vitamin C and dark chocolate; internal exercises that go far beyond Kegels; and maintenance of serotonin and dopamine levels. Unlike other orgasm books, which just focus on new positions to try or psychological issues, here is the first-ever scientifically supported nutritional and exercise programme to improve female libido and orgasmic ability.

The Other Side of Happiness: Embracing a More Fearless Approach to Living

by Dr Brock Bastian

'Required reading ... Brock Bastian expertly picks apart the fundamental idea that humans thrive when they approach pleasure and avoid pain, explaining why hardship sometimes yields richer lives that are laden with meaning, deep social connections, and unexpected bliss' Adam Alter, author of Drunk Tank Pink 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.

Our Billie: Learning To Live With Every Family's Worst Nightmare

by Ian Clayton

'An astonishing work' - Joanne HarrisEvery parent's worst nightmare became a reality for Ian Clayton. On a short holiday break in Hay-on-Wye he took his nine-year-old twins canoeing, and in a freak accident his daughter Billie was drowned. In a remarkably frank and vivid way Clayton describes what happened on that spring day, his desperate attempts to save his two children, and then what it felt like two years later to come face to face with the men who hired out the canoe.But Our Billie is not a story of bitterness and recrimination. Instead it's the story of how a family attempts to come to terms with something which makes no sense at all. Through his memories of Billie and his wonderfully affectionate portrait of the small town in Yorkshire where the family has lived for generations, he weaves a story of loss and remembering, of gratitude and forgiveness.

Our Great Purpose: Adam Smith on Living a Better Life

Out of Our Minds: The Power of Being Creative

Author Sir Ken Robinson is an internationally recognised authority on creativity, and his TED talk on the subject is the most watched video in TED’s history. In this book, Sir Ken argues that organisations everywhere are struggling to fix a problem that originates in schools and universities.

This new third edition has been updated to reflect changing technologies and demographics, with updated case studies and coverage of recent changes to education.

Learn how to re-awaken dormant creativity to help your business achieve more. Explore ways in which we can work together to keep creativity alive for everyone.
