The Inner Fix

By Persia Lawson, Joey Bradford, Addictive Daughter
Authors:
Persia Lawson, Joey Bradford, Addictive Daughter
THE INNER FIX is a unique and practical step-by-step programme to help you dramatically improve your relationships, feel more confident and satisfied with your work, confront your financial blocks and become the best version of yourself - both inside and out.With our lives being overrun by social media and celebrity culture, being twenty-something has become pretty complicated. Wanting things we can't afford, finding ourselves stuck in a job we don't enjoy, or still living at home with mum and dad, we reach for things to try to perk us up (sex, booze and drugs) - but eventually, they turn out to be the very things that bring us down.Having been caught in a cycle of self-destructive behaviour and come out the other side, Persia and Joey - friends, life coaches and founders of Addictive Daughter - colourfully chart their lives from childhood insecurities to adolescent obsessions. With tools and exercises to work through at your own pace, THE INNER FIX is guaranteed to teach you how to stop worrying and start living.'I love these two, they are the dream team to help you fall back in love with yourself.' - Madeleine Shaw'A guide on how to build a happy, purposeful life in uncertain times.' - Stylist

Intentional Living

By John C. Maxwell
Authors:
John C. Maxwell
We all have a longing to be significant. We want to make a contribution, to be a part of something noble and purposeful. But many people wrongly believe significance is unattainable. They worry that it's too big for them to achieve. That they have to have an amazing idea, be a certain age, have a lot of money, or be powerful or famous to make a real difference.The good news is that none of those things is necessary for you to achieve significance and create a lasting legacy. The only thing you need to achieve significance is to be intentional. And to do that, all you need to do is start. You can't make an impact sitting still and doing nothing. Every major accomplishment that's ever been achieved started with a first step. Sometimes it's hard; other times it's easy, but no matter what, you have to do it if you want to get anywhere in life.In INTENTIONAL LIVING, John Maxwell will help you take that first step, and the ones that follow, on your personal path through a life that matters.

  • Intelligence: All That Matters

    By Stuart Ritchie
    Authors:
    Stuart Ritchie
    There is a strange disconnect between the scientific consensus and the public mind on intelligence testing. Just mention IQ testing in polite company, and you'll sternly be informed that IQ tests don't measure anything "real", and only reflect how good you are at doing IQ tests; that they ignore important traits like "emotional intelligence" and "multiple intelligences"; and that those who are interested in IQ testing must be elitists, or maybe something more sinister.Yet the scientific evidence is clear: IQ tests are extraordinarily useful. IQ scores are related to a huge variety of important life outcomes like educational success, income, and even life expectancy, and biological studies have shown they are genetically influenced and linked to measures of the brain. Studies of intelligence and IQ are regularly published in the world's top scientific journals.This book will offer an entertaining introduction to the state of the art in intelligence and IQ, and will show how we have arrived at what we know from a century's research. It will engage head-on with many of the criticisms of IQ testing by describing the latest high-quality scientific research, but will not be a simple point-by-point rebuttal: it will make a positive case for IQ research, focusing on the potential benefits for society that a better understanding of intelligence can bring.

    Is There a Psycho in your Life?

    You've met a new man who seems too good to be true. He's charming, confident and impulsive. He shares so much in common with you and you seem to be the perfect match. But things aren't quite as they seem; you soon realise his charm doesn't run deep, he gets bored easily, he's irresponsible and he has a string of exes and one night stands in his wake, he thinks a lot of himself but little of others. Or perhaps your boss takes too many big risks and treats you like a pawn in their game or your friend is always asking favours of you. The psychopath in your life is probably in disguise - they could be your lover, your child, your colleague, your friend or the hot new date you've met on the internet. So how do you know if someone close to hand isn't quite who they seem? For fans of Jon Ronson's The Psychopath Test, in The Psychopath in Your Life, forensic psychologist Kerry Daynes explains the psyche of a psychopath, she reveals the behavioural traits they share in common and she gives advice on how to handle them - or better still, how to avoid them at all costs.
