The New Diary is about a completely modern concept of journal writing. It has little to do with the rigid daily calendar diary you may have kept as a child or the factual travelogue you wrote to recall the Grand Canyon. Instead, it is a tool for tapping the full power of your inner resources.

'TIMELY' David Mitchell 'MOVING ... REMARKABLE' SUNDAY TIMES 'ONE OF THOSE RARE BOOKS I HADN'T REASLISED I'D BEEN WAITING FOR UNTIL I READ IT.' Owen Sheers 'OPEN-MINDED, THOUGHTFUL AND WISE... A LIBERATING BOOK' Colm Toibin In an age of polished TED talks and overconfident political oratory, success seems to depend upon charismatic public speaking. But what if hyper-fluency is not only unachievable but undesirable? Jonty Claypole spent fifteen years of his life in and out of extreme speech therapy. From sessions with child psychologists to lengthy stuttering boot camps and exposure therapies, he tried everything until finally being told the words he'd always feared: 'We can't cure your stutter.' Those words started him on a journey towards not only making peace with his stammer but learning to use it to his advantage. Here, Jonty argues that our obsession with fluency could be hindering, rather than helping, our creativity, authenticity and persuasiveness. Exploring other speech conditions, such as aphasia and Tourette's, and telling the stories of the 'creatively disfluent' - from Lewis Carroll to Kendrick Lamar - Jonty explains why it's time for us to stop making sense, get tongue tied and embrace the life-changing power of inarticulacy.
Positive psychology is a vibrantly developing scientific field. It provides a fresh look at human behaviour and the promotion of well-being, covering a magnitude of topics related to feeling good, functioning well, being true to our own values, and growing from both positive and negative life experiences. Towards flourishing: embracing well-being in diverse contexts reflects on what harmony, peace and balance on an individual, group and societal level may mean and how these can promote well-being. Towards flourishing: embracing well-being in diverse contexts is an update and extension of the first edition Towards flourishing: contextualising positive psychology. It highlights the developments and changes in the field of positive psychology during the past decade, with particular reference to the newly emerging Third Wave (P3.0). It also includes findings from the newly developing field of multidisciplinary well-being studies as well as other quality-of-life studies enhancing well-being in diverse contexts.
Whether you work in a home office or abroad, business success in our ever more globalized and virtual world requires the skills to navigate through cultural differences and decode cultures foreign to your own. Renowned expert Erin Meyer is your guide through this subtle, sometimes treacherous terrain where people from starkly different backgrounds are expected to work harmoniously together.When you have Americans who precede anything negative with three nice comments French, Dutch, Israelis, and Germans who get straight to the point ( your presentation was simply awful") Latin Americans and Asians who are steeped in hierarchy Scandinavians who think the best boss is just one of the crowd,the result can be, well, sometimes interesting, even funny, but often disastrous.Even with English as a global language, it's easy to fall into cultural traps that endanger careers and sink deals when, say, a Brazilian manager tries to fathom how his Chinese suppliers really get things done, or an American team leader tries to get a handle on the intra-team dynamics between his Russian and Indian team members.In The Culture Map , Erin Meyer provides a field-tested model for decoding how cultural differences impact international business. She combines a smart analytical framework with practical, actionable advice for succeeding in a global world.
You know you're having a senior moment when you decide it's time to pull up your socks - and realize you forgot to put any on! Age is just a number and you're only as old as you feel, but if you're heading into your golden years and you're certifiably "no spring chicken", you might benefit from browsing through the pages of this tongue-in-cheek book to help you decide if your marbles just need a polish or you've well and truly lost them! Inside you'll find examples of classic "senior moments", such as: Ringing a friend to ask them for their phone number. Getting annoyed at the fact that your all-in-one remote won't open your garage door. Going to the store for milk and coming home with a new dog collar, rawl plugs, some plant pots that were on special offer... but no milk. Feeling frustrated by your computer's instructions to "press any key", when there's no "Any" key on your keyboard. With a sprinkling of reassuring quotes from fellow old-timers, this collection will help you see the funny side of getting older (but not necessarily wiser).
Developed to bridge the content covered in psychology survey courses and more advanced undergraduate psychology curriculum, Psychology as a Science and a Profession helps students better understand psychological science and the variety of potential careers available to them within the field. Throughout the text, students are empowered to find relevant research articles in scientific journals, recognize their predictable structure, and comprehend the main points of a study. They learn how to evaluate scientific claims made in the media and other non-scientific outlets. In exploring these various facets of psychological science, students gain a greater understanding of the discipline and can better determine if a career in psychology is for them. The book is organized into three sections. Unit I defines psychology and psychologists' roles, presents the rationale for studying the discipline, shares best practices to help students succeed in their psychological studies, and provides an overview of careers in psychology and other related areas. The chapters in Unit II begin with an overview of scientific principles, next address strategies for success in finding, reading, and writing psychological science, and conclude with ethics in psychology. The final unit addresses principles of research as applied to psychology. Psychology as a Science and a Profession is an ideal textbook for courses and programs in psychology, especially those emphasizing research methodology.
'Will Storr is one of our best journalists of ideas ... The Status Game might be his best yet' James Marriott, Books of the Year, The Times What drives our political and moral beliefs? What makes us like some things and dislike others? What shapes how we behave, and misbehave, in groups? What makes you, you? For centuries, philosophers and scholars have described human behaviour in terms of sex, power and money. In The Status Game, bestselling author Will Storr radically turns this thinking on its head by arguing that it is our irrepressible craving for status that ultimately defines who we are. From the era of the hunter-gatherer to today, when we exist as workers in the globalised economy and citizens of online worlds, the need for status has always been wired into us. A wealth of research shows that how much of it we possess dramatically affects not only our happiness and wellbeing but also our physical health - and without sufficient status, we become more ill, and live shorter lives. It's an unconscious obsession that drives the best and worst of us: our innovation, arts and civilisation as well as our murders, wars and genocides. But why is status such an all-consuming prize? What happens if it's taken away from us? And how can our unquenchable thirst for it explain cults, moral panics, conspiracy theories, the rise of social media and the 'culture wars' of today? On a breathtaking journey through time and culture, The Status Game offers a sweeping rethink of human psychology that will change how you see others - and how you see yourself.
Examining the self is at the heart of coaching and this book provides a comprehensive overview of knowledge on the Self from psychology, philosophy and other disciplines. Developmental Coaching outlines a theory of individual development, with practical applications for coaches. The Development of Self in Action (DSA) theory provides a credible explanation of the individual functioning, desired changes and development that makes developmental coaching a rigorous, theory-based approach to practice. Building on the influential first edition of this text, Bachkirova enriches and refines the book with even further conceptual clarity and hands-on advice. These theoretical and practical approaches have been used and tested for over a decade, not only in the actual delivery of developmental coaching, but also in many teaching programmes, numerous masterclasses and coaching supervision internationally. This new edition also offers an additional section on professional development and coaching supervision for coaches in the area. This book will be an invaluable resource for students on coaching programmes and coaching practitioners who are keen to understand more about developmental coaching and why it works. "This is the best book written so far about coaching, in my humble opinion, because it is so deeply considered, so original and intelligent, so relevant to practising coaches, and so useful to those seeking practical wisdoms." Dr Paul Lawrence, Director Leading Systemically & Honorary Research Associate Oxford Brookes University, UK "Tatiana masterfully interweaves a rich discussion of the scientific and philosophical foundations of her DSA model with practical tools and implications for coaches." Angela Passarelli, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Management, College of Charleston, USA "Tatiana Bachkirova greatly enriches our understanding of both client and coach." Mary Watts, Emeritus Professor of Psychology, City, University of London, UK Praise from the 1st Edition: This book is a rare beast in the developmental area of coaching - intelligent, articulate and accessible ... Dr Bachkirova's work combines and extends many existing developmental approaches, making previously opaque frameworks tangible and real. Anthony Grant, Director of the Coaching Psychology Unit, University of Sydney, Australia Tatiana Bachkirova is Professor of Coaching Psychology and Co-Director of the International Centre for Coaching and Mentoring Studies at Oxford Brookes University, UK. She is a recognised international speaker and her many publications include over 70 research and conceptual papers as well as edited volumes.
Decision-making is an activity in which everyone is engaged on a more or less daily basis. In this book, Karin Brunsson and Nils Brunsson explore the intricacies of decision-making for individuals and organizations. When, how and why do they make decisions? The authors identify four distinct ways of reasoning that decision-makers use. The consequences of decisions vary: some promote action, others impede it, and some produce more responsibility than others. With in-depth discussions of rationality, justifications and hypocrisy, the authors show how organizational and political decision processes become over-complicated and difficult for both decision makers and external observers to understand. Decisions is a concise and easy-to-read introduction to a highly significant and intriguing topic. Based on research from several fields, it provides useful reading and essential knowledge for scholars and students throughout the social sciences and for everyone who wants to understand their own decisions and those of others.

Woman as comestible. Woman as kingmaker. Woman as oblivion. Why is our culture governed by the principle of separation? Beginning with a devastating exploration of the 1960s, understood up until now as the era of female liberation, free love and the tribal sharing of drugs, Antonella Gambotto-Burke deconstructs the past two centuries and shows how we are, in fact, moving towards the age of the Nietzschean ubermensch, in which femininity will, if we do not change, be erased. She skilfully draws together diverse threads, from the shockingly personal to the broadest societal trends and cutting-edge scientific research, to construct a brilliant and startling thesis that medicinal and recreational drugs have rewired our bodies and brains to an near-incomprehensible extent. Anxiety, artificial wombs, brutality, the class system, depression, dieting, racism and other issues - including the first plausible theory for rubber fetishism and other 'kinks' such as choking or breathplay - are explained within the context of the dominant cultural paradigm. A devastating uppercut to a patriarchal ideology that has marred billions of lives, Apple: Sex, Drugs, Motherhood and the Recovery of the Feminine completely revises our understanding of addiction, art, drug use, homosexuality, murder, pornography, sex, war, and, critically, the significance of birth, infancy and motherhood in relation to human existence. You will never see anything the same way again.
'Written with such understanding and power it takes your breath away' - JEREMY VINE Hannah Jane Walker is a very sensitive person, along with at least a fifth of the population. Like many, she was conditioned to believe this was a weakness and a trait that she should try and overcome. When she had her first child and realised that her little girl was sensitive too, Hannah decided to find out whether sensitivity might in fact be a positive trait. Her question led to some fascinating answers and ongoing research that suggests survival and thriving is not only limited to the fittest, but to the sensitive. If you are someone, or know someone who sat at the edge of the party as a child, or waits to be sure about what you want to say only to never get a word in, or jumps at loud noises, or worries that you cry so easily at a beautiful piece of art, or that you just seem to feel so much (too much), this book reveals the strengths in these traits and also how we need to embrace them rather than be embarrassed by them. People who are highly sensitive are highly caring, they are observant and notice new ways of doing things in difficult circumstances, they are able to follow their gut instincts (a real, scientific thing), they bring teams together, they listen well and are far more resilient than we've often been led to believe. The problem is that in today's noisy world, they often suffer from lower self-esteem and confidence levels. Like Susan Cain's Quiet, which showed the power of introverts in an extrovert world, Sensitive overturns old cliches and stereotypes and suggests a new way of looking at a trait that people so often feel ashamed of but that has so much untapped potential.
'Everything he writes is an enlightening education in how to be human.' Elizabeth Day To fix a machine, first you need to find out what's wrong with it. To fix unhappiness, you need to find out what causes it. That Little Voice in Your Head is the practical guide to retraining your brain for optimal joy by Mo Gawdat, the internationally bestselling author of Solve for Happy. Mo reveals how by beating negative self-talk, we can change our thought processes, turning our greed into generosity, our apathy into compassion and investing in our own happiness. This book provides readers with exercises to help reshape their mental processes. Drawing on his expertise in programming and his knowledge of neuroscience, Mo explains how - despite their incredible complexity - our brains behave in ways that are largely predictable. From these insights, he delivers this user manual for happiness. Inspired by the life of his late son, Ali, Mo Gawdat has set out to share a model for happiness based on generosity and empathy towards ourselves and others. Using his experience as a former Google engineer and Chief Business Officer, Mo shares his 'code' for reprogramming our brain and moving away from the misconceptions modern life gives us.
A User's Guide to Melancholy takes Robert Burton's encyclopaedic masterpiece The Anatomy of Melancholy (first published in 1621) as a guide to one of the most perplexing, elusive, attractive, and afflicting diseases of the Renaissance. Burton's Anatomy is perhaps the largest, strangest, and most unwieldy self-help book ever written. Engaging with the rich cultural and literary framework of melancholy, this book traces its causes, symptoms, and cures through Burton's writing. Each chapter starts with a case study of melancholy - from the man who was afraid to urinate in case he drowned his town to the girl who purged a live eel - as a way into exploring the many facets of this mental affliction. A User's Guide to Melancholy presents in an accessible and illustrated format the colourful variety of Renaissance melancholy, and contributes to contemporary discussions about wellbeing by revealing the earlier history of mental health conditions.
