The New Childhood
By Jordan Shapiro
IT'S TIME FOR A NEW APPROACH TO SCREEN TIME.Jordan Shapiro believes we need to rethink parental attitudes to technology. There's a damaging orthodoxy that presents screen-time as the ultimate modern parenting evil and the only acceptable response to it is restriction. Shapiro, psychologist, educational pioneer and father of two, draws on cutting-edge research in education, philosophy, neuroscience and psychology to show we've let fear and nostalgia stand in the way of our children's best interests. In his optimistic, inspiring and practical guide to the new, digital frontier of childhood, he reframes gaming, social media and smartphones to offer fresh, evidence-based advice on how to take a more progressive approach.*Winner of the Spirituality & Practice Book Award as one of the 50 Best Spiritual Books of 2018.*'Shapiro successfully transforms our worst fears about screen time into excitement about the potential for redesigning childhood around our latest technologies ... It's a necessary book that I urge you to read.' - The Telegraph'Shapiro knows what he's talking about ... Shapiro's arguments are compelling' - USA Today'a thought-provoking, bold read. As a father of two daughters at similar ages to Jordan's children (7 and 9), facing similar challenges and dilemmas, the book provided me with an inspiring and optimistic perspective that's rare in the current media landscape.' - Variety'Timely, essential, and thought-provoking, The New Childhood is the must-read parenting guide for raising 21st century, digitally driven kids. Instead of raising a white flag and giving in to social media and the Internet, Jordan Shapiro tells parents how to embrace technology, stay involved in their children's lives, and prepare them for their future. Read it! I promise you'll rethink your parenting. I couldn't put it down' - Michele Borba, EdD, author of UnSelfie: Why Empathetic Kids Succeed In Our All-About-Me World

The No-Grain Diet
By Dr Joseph Mercola
Forget fats as the biggest dietary sin, the latest scientific evidence now shows that the real culprits in escalating weight gain are grains, starches and sugars. By eliminating grains from your diet, you actually reprogramme your mind and body to release fat and burn it, and as a result the weight you lose is kept off - permanently. This all-new low carbohydrate diet moves on from Dr Atkins, cutting out the unhealthy side-effects of that diet and including a wider range of healthy foods than Atkins or any of his successors.The No Grain diet offers three plans tailored to suit your needs: The booster plan (to ease you more gently into the plan), the core plan (for faster results), and the advanced plan (for those who need to lose a lot of weight fast for health reasons). What's more, it presents a unique psychological technique to combat cravings, bolster your self-belief and help you ride low periods, which usually lead you to break the diet. With delicious recipes and advice on additional factors to further support your new healthy lifestyle, The No Grain Diet is the last diet book you'll ever need.
Networking In A Week
By Alison Straw, Dena Michelli
Networking just got easierNetworking is a word that is firmly embedded in our vocabulary. It is not unusual to hear the word used to describe a range of activities and behaviours.The activities of a successful networker are often focussed on outcomes. Our research and observations suggest that successful networkers build their networks by developing close relationships with work colleagues, professional communities and associations and virtually, through social and professional networking sites, referrals and references from friends or colleagues.The behaviours of a successful networker are often social. Successful networkers may be considered to be gregarious; when you observe them, it becomes clear they build relationships through empathic connections, being respectful, purposeful and reciprocal relationships that are founded on principles such as 'do as you would be done by'.Individuals respond to the word network in different ways. However you respond to the word, networks can make the difference for you personally and professionally. Networking In A Week is designed to help you understand, benefit from and develop your network.Each of the seven chapters in Networking In A Week covers a different aspect:- Sunday: Networks and networking- Monday: Personal networks- Tuesday: Organizational networks- Wednesday: Professional networks- Thursday: Networking for career development- Friday: Social networking- Saturday: Simple steps to networking success
Negotiation Skills In A Week
By Peter Fleming
Effective negotiation skills just got easierThere was a time, not that long ago, when negotiation was seen, in the main, as the province of industrial relations folk and car-sales advisers. But, no longer! Repeated financial crises have squeezed profit margins and, in some markets, discouraged buyers from making marginal purchases or continuing habitual expenditure. Managers have found themselves in the frontline of the expectation to achieve better value for money, and the starting point for this is to shop around and explore the offers made by new suppliers, and/or to negotiate better deals with existing suppliers.Even if your job doesn't involve negotiation, then you might still be an active negotiator when replacing your car, moving house or even selling last season's wardrobe! The truth is that being a good negotiator has become a life skill, enabling those who are good at it not just to save money, but also to upgrade their computer, television or lawnmower with little or no increase in outgoings - and enhancing their reputation in the process.Becoming an effective negotiator is certainly within the scope of the majority of people. At its simplest, it involves thinking out what you want, planning how you'd like to get it and developing your powers of persuasion to convince other people that you are simply being reasonable.This book will help you to plan to become a better negotiator through being better prepared for meetings, planning clear and realistic objectives for a negotiation, maintaining concentration and making logical proposals that create agreement in the other party.- Sunday: Creating the right environment- Monday: Researching your objectives - Tuesday: People and places - Wednesday: Breaking the ice - Thursday: The agenda - Friday: Concluding- Saturday: Learning from your experiences
