Dare

What happens when fantasies come true

By Tracey Cox

  • Paperback
  • £10.99

Sex and relationships expert, TV presenter and multi-million-copy-selling author of Hot Sex and Super Sex, Tracey Cox brings us the true-life stories of women who have taken their erotic fantasies one step further into reality.

Just about everyone has sex fantasies - and there are lots of reasons why. In fantasy land, there are no rules and you are in charge of the action. But there's a second type of fantasy - one that won't leave your head and which the truly adventurous want to see through to reality with consequences they can't always foresee.

This book, by sex expert Tracey Cox, is about both types of fantasies: what women dream about - and what happens when they dare to take what existed perfectly in their heads into the stark (sometimes funny, or awful, or thrilling) reality of their beds.

Here are women's most incredible and intimate secrets laid bare.

Anxiety is Your Superpower

Wendy Suzuki
Authors:
Wendy Suzuki

We live in an age of anxiety. Like an omnipresent yet invisible odour you've grown used to, anxiety has become a constant condition, a fact of life, and a distraction that undermines our quality of life. Dr Wendy Suzuki's ground-breaking research will show us that science tells us a very different story: yes, anxiety is unpleasant - it's meant to be - and in the debilitating extreme, what Wendy will call 'bad anxiety', it's destructive. But most of the anxiety that humans feel is essential - not only to survival, but for higher brain functions formerly thought to be put on hold during anxious moments, Wendy will provide two broad categories of neuroscience-based hacks for harnessing anxiety and facing it head-on. The first will help address and calm anxiety so that you can enjoy the productivity you will experience, and the second grouping of brain science hacks will enable readers to channel anxious feelings into six uses for good anxiety - from productivity, increased emotional intelligence and focus to creativity and confidence. Through Wendy's unique perspective as a neuroscientist, she will teach us how to flip anxiety on its head and offer a counterintuitive lens through which to understand how anxiety manifests in our everyday lives. The book will introduce a taboo breaking slant on anxiety: we will learn how it can be good for us and that once we learn how to play it at its own game, it can become our superpower!

The Memory Code

Alex Loyd
Authors:
Alex Loyd

Every one of us is the product of our past experiences. Good or bad, everything we do is informed by our memories - or more accurately, what we take away from those memories. But what if you could go back and rewrite the lessons of the past? What if you could turn a road block into a springboard? What if you could change your behaviour by changing your memories?Maybe it sounds too futuristic to be real, but it's both real and possible. Our past doesn't have to dictate our future. Losing weight, ending addiction, improving relationships, improving careers - you can really change these behaviours by altering your memories. In his groundbreaking new book The Memory Code, bestselling author Dr. Alexander Loyd teaches you how, revealing techniques he's been developing for more than 16 years.When we have a negative experience, we develop coping mechanisms to avoid that experience in the future. That can lead to behaviours like overeating, substance abuse, or poor lifestyle choices. By turning negative memories into positive ones, we can change the behaviours at the root of our problems. This process, called memory re-engineering, involves teaching our brains to re-imagine and re-code certain memories that trigger negative associations and the avoidance and coping mechanisms we've developed to deal with them. It means teaching ourselves to rethink those internal images so that instead of producing fear, anxiety and other negative emotions, they produce love, peace and positive associations.

A Cure for Heartache

Mary Jane Grant
Authors:
Mary Jane Grant

'A tale of loss and hope, of strength drawn from truly inhabiting the moment.' - Raynor Winn, author of The Salt PathHeartwarming non fiction up lit about starting over and embracing life, one simple moment at a time.When her husband of twenty five years suddenly announces he's leaving her, writer Mary Jane Grant runs away to London to immerse herself in any reality but her own. Reeling from the shock and loss of her marriage and the life she's known, she begins to discover that if she can just focus on the moment she's in, take notice of the people, the sights and smells around her, that her pain and grief start to recede. From the bustling cafes of Camden and the pastel-coloured streets of Notting Hill, to the sun soaked vineyards of the south of France, her journey leads her to rich new experiences that she could never have imagined in her old life. Real connections are made, she lets go of the things she no longer needs, and takes pleasure in the good, generous and beautiful parts of life that she encounters every day. Beautifully and succinctly told, this is a story about what happens when you embrace life, whatever it may bring, with surprising - and joyful - results. While the tea steeped, I split open the muffin and slathered butter across the warm, crumbly surface. I watched the butter melt. I took a bite. Memories of my grandmother's kitchen came back. I cradled the smooth white cup in my hand, ran my fingers over the uneven top of the time-worn wooden table. I looked around the place and watched people. Time passed. I realised that it was an hour since I first saw the sign telling me to smell the tea. And, all this time I had been possessed of neither sad memories nor anxious worries. I was completely and simply here, with the tea, the place, the people, myself. I was present. And it felt wonderful.(P) 2019 Hodder & Stoughton Limited

Cheer Up Love, Susan's first book, had a clear aim: to help people understand depression. Sunny Side Up has a similarly clear path: to persuade people to be kinder to each other and spread more joy. These are extremely difficult and confusing times - people are cross and shouty. It's exhausting! But more than anything, people like Susan, people who don't hate other people, are apologising for the way that they think. Susan wants to make sure that they don't. She wants them to know that it's ok to love people and that kindness is something wonderful and brilliant. Above all, she wants them to bring on the joy. So the mission is simple. To get the nation to join her in not being negative. To bring back joy, kindness and community, to find that joy in the little things in life and defeat the hate and fear. Susan is a one-woman army of hope and joy, and she's ready to lead the nation in a different direction.
