The Fish Finger Years

By Fiona Gibson
Authors:
Fiona Gibson
If you have an embarrassing child who bursts into friends' houses announcing 'It stinks in here' or shouts 'why is that man so fat?' on the bus (and not a spooky child who replaces felt-tip lids and enjoys dusting) then this book is for you.Self-confessed imperfect mum Fiona Gibson blends her own hilarious tales of raising three children with anecdotes and nuggets of advice from 300 fellow parents who admit they too get things wrong occasionally. Stories and tips cover a huge range of parenting dilemmas, from 'what to do if your child has a screaming, plank-rigid wobbler in M&S, and everyone's giving you Bad Parent looks' and 'how to handle a foul-mouthed monster obsessed with the toilet parts of horses' to 'sex: should you make the effort or just not bother?'.Above all, this funny, refreshingly honest look at being a real-life mum will come as a welcome reminder that yours is not the only family who can't go to Ikea without tears, tantrums and the threat of divorce...

Fit For Fertility

By Michael Dooley
Authors:
Michael Dooley
One in six couples have problems conceiving and many more suffer the pain of miscarriage, which FIT FOR FERTILITY also addresses. Much of the advice they're given is misleading or negative and IVF is often presented as the only option. In fact, it's been shown that an integrated approach to fertility treatment achieved the same success rates as IVF, without medical intervention, worry and expense. This is Michael's approach and is based on his hugely successful Fit for Fertility programme that combines changes to lifestyle, good nutrition and complementary therapies. FIT FOR FERTILITY will allow the reader to self diagnose and tailor their programme according to their needs. It is infused with Michael's up-beat philosophy and builds on his inspiring work to promise a genuine chance of success.

Freud's Wizard

By Brenda Maddox
Authors:
Brenda Maddox
Ernest Jones was a born empire builder, who imported the intellectual ferment of early twentieth-century European analysis to our shores. In 1938 he daringly flew to Vienna to rescue Freud from the Nazi threat. With the media frenzy that greeted Freud's arrival in England, psychoanalysis hit the mainstream. When Jones subsequently wrote the definitive, three-volume biography of his mentor, Freud's trailblazing reputation was secured. Jones himself was a remarkable man, mercurial and quixotic. The son of a colliery clerk in South Wales, his insinuation into the inner circle of psychoanalysis is an improbable story. Likewise, the devastating, if dubious, sexual success he enjoyed with female patients caused intrigue among his contemporaries. As Jones's analytic reputation reached new heights, rumours as to what Freud dubbed his 'dark inconsistencies' grew. Award-winning biographer Brenda Maddox insightfully and gracefully breathes life into this enigmatic character. Freud's Wizard is a riveting resurrection of a critical, heretofore overlooked, architect of our modern intellectual landscape.

Finest Hour

By Phil Craig, Tim Clayton
Authors:
Phil Craig, Tim Clayton
Seventy years ago, Europe lay at Hitler's feet. Britain faced its darkest hour - outnumbered and friendless as the German army continued its advance. Defeat or capitulation seemed inevitable. But instead a legend was born. Taking its readers on a breathtaking journey from open lifeboats in Atlantic gales to the cockpits of burning fighter-planes, and through cities devastated by the Blitz, FINEST HOUR recreates the terror, the tragedy and the triumph of the Battle of Britain. This powerful account of the events of 1940 is told through the voices, diaries, letters and memoirs of the men and women who lived, loved, fought and died during this terrible yet inspiring year. FINEST HOUR also contains a provocative analysis of key turning points, and questions some cherished national myths. Cutting through the nostalgic haze, this book enables readers to experience a time - still within living memory - when a nation's darkest hour became its finest.
