There are many fitness books devoted to getting a better body. There are also many books devoted to the mindfulness, inside-out approach to success, several of which focus on exercise. However, there has not been a book that turns the inside-out concept on its head (pun intended), taking an outside-in approach to show how strengthening the body first leads to a stronger mind and inner self. Work Out fills that void, first by explaining how exercise creates the sound mind and changes us on the inside and then by describing the workouts to create the sound body.

'A powerful, poignant tale of dieting and despair.' The Times 'A moving, brutally honest memoir about what it feels like to be fat-shamed.' Mail on Sunday _______________ At sixty-four, Jenni Murray's weight had become a disability. She avoided the scales, she wore a uniform of baggy black clothes, refused to make connections between her weight and health issues and told herself that she was fat and happy. She was certainly fat. But the happy part was an Oscar-worthy performance. In private she lived with a growing sense of fear and misery that her weight would probably kill her before she made it to seventy. Interwoven with the science, social history and psychology of weight management, Fat Cow, Fat Chance is a refreshingly honest account of what it's like to be fat when society dictates that skinny is the norm. It asks why we overeat and why, when the weight is finally lost through dieting, do we simply pile the pounds back on again? How do we help young people become comfortable with the way they look? What are the consequences of the obesity epidemic for an already overstretched NHS? And, whilst fat shaming is so often called out, why is it that shouting 'fat cow' at a woman in the street hasn't been included in the list of hate crimes? Fusing politics, science and personal pain, this is a powerful exploration of our battle with obesity. _______________ 'Agony and confusion, humour and hope. A beautiful book.' Susie Orbach, author of Fat is a Feminist Issue 'A perceptive look at health and happiness.' Sunday Express

Don't limit your challenges. Challenge your limits At the age of 55, record-breaking ultrarunner Mimi Anderson embarked on her most ambitious adventure yet. She wanted to become the fastest woman in history to run across America from Los Angeles to New York. Her journey would cover 2,850 miles, 12 states and four time zones, dealing with extreme changes in terrain, weather and altitude along the way. For 40 days, the determined mother of three pushed herself on and on for more than 2,000 miles across the vast continent, despite the onset of severe pain, until she was forced to make a crushing decision: carry on and risk never being able to run again or give up on her all-time goal. What happened next set Mimi on a new, unexpected journey. She learned to face her fears and bounce back from defeat by taking up the new challenge of becoming a triathlete. A follow-up to her first memoir Beyond Impossible, this next instalment in Mimi's inspiring story proves that when one door closes, another opens - you just need the courage to swim, cycle and run through it.
