True Age: Cutting Edge Research to Help Turn Back the Clock

by Dr Morgan Elyse Levine

Research suggests that only 10-30% of our lifespan is determined by our genetics. This means that the vast majority of how we age is directly related to choices we make everyday - how and what we eat, exercise and sleep quality, to name a few. So, while ageing itself may be inevitable, what if there were a way to measure our biological age? And what if there were strategies to slow down, or even reverse, the ageing process?In True Age, Dr Morgan Levine gives us an insight into the cutting-edge developments in the science of aging and longevity and teaches us that through understanding our biological age, we can monitor and even control the process of ageing.True Age explores:- The concept of biological age and the methods now available to determine your own.- Types of foods likely to decrease our biological age - and which will age you prematurely.- What types of exercise are most effective for turning back the clock.- How much sleep we need and what other lifestyle patterns are most likely to help slow and reverse ageing.True Age will equip you with the tools you need to develop personal regimes, diets and routines specifically tailored to keep you looking - and feeling - as young as possible. Using her years of expert research in the field, Dr Levine will put you on the path to living a healthier and more proactive life.

True Grit: The Epic True Stories Of Survival And Heroism That Have Shaped My Life

by Bear Grylls

Bear Grylls knows what it takes to survive. But he’s not the first. Take the American bombardier Louis Zamperini, who survived 47 days stranded at sea by catching and killing hungry sharks and drinking the warm blood of albatrosses — only to be captured by the Japanese and horrifically tortured for years in their most brutal POW camps… Or Marcus Luttrell, a Navy SEAL who single-handedly took on a Taliban regiment before dragging his bleeding, bullet-ridden body for days through the harsh mountains of Afghanistan… Or Nando Parrado, one of the survivors of a horrific air-crash high in the ice-bound Andes, who only lived because he was willing to eat the flesh of his dead companions… In this gripping new book, Bear tells the stories of the adventurers, explorers, soldiers and spies whose refusal to quit in the most extreme situations has inspired him throughout his life. Some of them make uncomfortable reading – survival is rarely pretty. But all of them are tales of eye-watering bravery, death-defying resilience and extraordinary mental toughness by men and women who have one thing in common: true grit.

True Style: The History and Principles of Classic Menswear

THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER'I like thinking big. I always have. To me it's very simple: If you're going to be thinking anyway, you might as well think big.' – Donald J.

It's the most streetwise business book there is – and the ultimate read for anyone interested in making money and achieving success, and knowing the man behind the spotlight.

Trust in Epistemology (Routledge Studies in Trust Research)

by Katherine Dormandy

Trust is fundamental to epistemology. It features as theoretical bedrock in a broad cross-section of areas including social epistemology, the epistemology of self-trust, feminist epistemology, and the philosophy of science. Yet epistemology has seen little systematic conversation with the rich literature on trust itself. This volume aims to promote and shape this conversation. It encourages epistemologists of all stripes to dig deeper into the fundamental epistemic roles played by trust, and it encourages philosophers of trust to explore the epistemological upshots and applications of their theories. The contributors explore such issues as the risks and necessity of trusting others for information, the value of doing so as opposed to relying on oneself, the mechanisms underlying trust’s strange ability to deliver knowledge, whether depending on others for information is compatible with epistemic responsibility, whether self-trust is an intellectual virtue, and the intimate relationship between epistemic trust and social power. This volume, in Routledge’s new series on trust research, will be a vital resource to academics and students not just of epistemology and trust, but also of moral psychology, political philosophy, the philosophy of science, and feminist philosophy – and to anyone else wanting to understand our vital yet vulnerable-making capacity to trust others and ourselves for information in a complex world.

The Truth About Love: How to really fall in love - with your life and everyone in it

by Conor Creighton

We are trained from the youngest of ages to imagine that love is a force outside of ourselves; that if you keep swiping, one day your prince will come; that love is something you have to look for, work for, diet for.The truth is: we are creators of love, not discoverers of love, and until we realise that love comes out of us, rather than to us, we’ll never really get it or feel it.Conor Creighton learned this the hard way with a string of tumultuous relationships in his past. That was until, through meditation, he woke up to the powerful force that is self-love and watched as his relationships and the whole world transformed around him.In a unique hybrid of memoir and self-help, here Conor uses his life lessons to help readers wake up to the truth about love. A modern manifesto and spiritual guide to relationships, The Truth About Love makes a daring call to action, showing how to change yourself and the world around you through the courageous act of opening your heart.

The Truth About Stress

by Angela Patmore

We seem to be living through an epidemic of stress. There are 15 million websites dedicated to the subject and Britain alone has over two million accredited therapists, counsellors and healers devoted to protecting us from what they claim is a debilitating disease. But is there really a stress problem? In this brilliant and provocative analysis, Angela Patmore examines the confusion and controversy surrounding the whole concept, raising important questions about the treatments and advice that offer to cure it. She argues that the health angst engendered by all this lucrative 'stress awareness' sends its victims in search of therapy and sedation and fuels an epidemic costing the UK billions. Far from helping people cope with their problems and feelings, Patmore contends, the unregulated industry is harming them. Her conclusions suggest we need to reappraise profoundly the way we understand our own health and well-being.

Turning the Tide on Plastic: How Humanity (And You) Can Make Our Globe Clean Again

by Lucy Siegle

Enough plastic is thrown away every year to circle the world 4 times More than 8 million tonnes of plastic enter the oceans each year 300 million tonnes of new plastic is produced every year An estimated 15-51 trillion pieces of plastic now litter the world's oceans 38.5 million plastic bottles are used every day in the UK A million plastic bottles are used per minute around the world 500 million plastic straws are used per year Without big action, at the current rate, pieces of plastic will outnumber fish in the ocean by 2050. That is the legacy we are leaving our children and grandchildren. Plastic flows into our lives from every direction and most of it is not recycled. Instead it is incinerated or ends up in landfill, where it will sit for hundreds of years, or enters the world's seas where it fragments into tiny pieces to become microplastics - the environmental scourge of our times. Many of us had assumed that governments, brands and waste authorities were dealing with plastic on our behalf. But the impact of shows such as Blue Planet along with national beach cleans and high-profile campaigns have resulted in a collective wake-up call. If there were plans and strategies, they have not worked as we imagined. It would be easy to feel despondent but instead we need to turn our anger and emotion into action, starting by making a big dent in our own enormous consumption. Turning the tide on Plastic is here just in time. Journalist, broadcaster and eco lifestyle expert Lucy Siegle provides a powerful call to arms to end the plastic pandemic along with the tools we need to make decisive change. It is a clear-eyed, authoritative and accessible guide to help us to take decisive and effective personal action. Because this matters. When it comes to single-use plastics, we are habitual users, reaching out for plastic water bottles, disposable coffee cups, plastic straws and carrier bags multiple times a day. If only 12 of us adopt Lucy's 'reduce, rethink, refill, refuse' approach, we could potentially ditch 3K-15K single items of plastic in a year. When we consider our power as influencers - whether at school, the hairdressers, at work or on the bus - we suddenly become part of something significant. So now is the time to speak up, take action and demand the change you want to see in the ocean, in the supermarket aisles and on the streets. It's time to turn the tide on plastic, and this book will show you how.
