    Title: Teach Only Love: The Twelve Principles of Attitudinal Healing
    Author: JAMPOLSKY GERALD G.

    Dr. Jampolsky believes there is another way of looking at life that makes it possible for us to walk through this world in love, at peace and without fear. This other way requires no external battles, but only that we heal ourselves. It is a process he calls "attitudinal healing," because it is an internal and primarily mental process. Jampolsky believes that attitudinal healing, when properly practiced, will allow anyone, regardless of her circumstances, to begin experiencing the joy and harmony that each moment holds, and to start her journey on a path of love and hope.

    The mind can be retrained. Within this fact lies our freedom. Our attitudes determine whether we experience peace or fear, whether we are well or sick, free or imprisoned. Love, in its true meaning, is the attitude that this book is about. Love is total acceptance and total giving--with no boundaries and no exceptions. Love, being the only reality, cannot be transformed. It can only extend and expand. It unfolds endlessly and beautifully upon itself. Love sees everyone as blameless, for it recognizes the light within each one of us is. Love is the total absence of fear and the basis for all attitudinal healing.

    The principles of attitudinal healing have been expanded since Teach Only Love was first published in 1983. There are now twelve principles, which are used in the 150 Centers for Attitudinal Healing around the world. Dr. Jampolsky believes that these principles have a universal appeal that crosses cultural and religious barriers. He has repeatedly seen how people's lives have transformed when these principles became their heartbeat and their way of communicating with others.

    Author: STRAUSS NEIL

    FROM THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE GAMENeil Strauss became famous to millions around the world as the author of The Game, a funny and slyly instructive account of how he transformed himself from a scrawny, insecure nerd into the ultra-confident, ultra-successful 'pickup artist' known as Style. The book jump-started the international 'seduction community', and made Strauss a household name - revered or notorious - among single men and women alike. But the experience of writing The Gamealso transformed Strauss into a man who could have what every man wants: the ability to date or have casual sex with almost every woman he met. The results were heady, to be sure. But they also conditioned him to view the world as a kind of constant parade of women, sex and opportunity - with intimacy and long-term commitment taking a back seat. That is, until he met the woman who forced him to choose between herself and the parade. The choice was not only difficult, it was wrenching. It forced him deep into his past, to confront not only the moral dimensions of his pickup lifestyle, but also a mystery in his childhood that shaped the man that he became. It sent him into extremes of behaviour that exposed just how conflicted his life had become. And it made him question everything he knew about himself, and about the way men and women live with and without each other. He would never be the same again. Searingly honest, compulsively readable, The Game of Lovemay have the same effect on you. Praise for The Game: 'A narrative of daredevil sexuality.' Guardian'Touching and witty.'

    Author: CHARANZA LAURA

    Have you ever felt like a normal discussion turns into him raging at you, while you cower in the corner, not certain what just happened to set him off? Have you felt like you would be punished if you stand up for yourself? Have you ever been told you are imagining things and everyone thinks you are crazy? Have you been told no one else could ever love you? Have you been led to believe this is all your fault? If you feel like you are living a fairy taleturned nightmare, then you may be a victim of narcissistic abuse. Abusive relationships with a narcissist follow a specific pattern. There is the initial stage of love bombing, where he is prince charming and you are his princess and soulmate. Then, the debasement starts. The rules start changing. Just when you think you know what he wants, the standards change again. Then he isolates you. You are not allowed to see family and friends. If you do, you are punished with silence or rancid accusations. Then, there is the escalation of conversations into turbulent arguments, only for him to apologise and start the cycle all over again. If you feel hopeless, don't. There is a way out, and your exit plan begins with understanding what you are going through and how you ended up there. Narcissism is a spectrum disorder. A person can exhibit a few symptoms of being a narcissist, or enough traits to be diagnosed with the full blown narcissistic personality disorder. There is ambivalence on the part of psychologists and other experts on whether a narcissist can change. So, what do you do? Do you stay or do you go? Can your partner be the one who changes? Laura Charanza is a survivor of forty years of narcissistic abuse. Laura has worked with psychologists, physicians, life coaches and spiritual healers to understand narcissism and a narcissist's victims. With empathy and transparency, Laura tells, first hand, the story of a typical and toxic relationship with a narcissist. But understand that there is a way out, and here is where your journey to freedom, peace and true love can begin.

    Title: Unexpected Joy of Being Single
    Author: GRAY CATHERINE


    * 'This refreshing, unusual book needs to exist. A culture shift which repositions a single person as someone who is relationship-free, complete, and not lacking is long overdue.' - The i *


    Having a secret single freak-out? Feeling the red, heart-shaped urgency intensify as the years roll on by? Oh hi! You're in the right place.


    Over half of Brits aged 25-44 are now single. It's become the norm to remain solo until much later in life, given the average marriage ages of 35 (women) and 38 (men). Many of us are choosing never to marry at all.
    But society, films, song lyrics and our parents are adamant that a happy ending has to be couple-shaped. That we're incomplete without an 'other half'*, like a bisected panto pony. Cue: single sorrow. Dating like it's a job. Spending half our lives waiting for somebody-we-fancy to text us back. Feeling haunted by the terms 'spinster' or 'confirmed bachelor.'


    Catherine Gray took a whole year off dating to find single satisfaction. She lifted the lid on the reasons behind the global single revolution, explored the bizarre ways cultures single-shame, detached from 'all the good ones are gone!' panic and debunked the myth that married people are much happier.


    Let's start the reverse brainwash, in order to locate - and luxuriate in - single happiness. Are you in?

    Author: PHILLIPS ADAM

    A great deal has been written, by psychoanalysts amongst many others, about the pleasures that are forbidden to us. But what of the pleasures that are unforbidden and freely available to all? In his dazzling new book Adam Phillips, beginning with Oscar Wilde, explores the meanings and importance of the Unforbidden, from the fall of our 'first parents' Adam and Eve to the work of the great nineteenth- and twentieth-century thinkers.Unforbidden pleasures, he argues, are always the ones we tend not to think about, yet when you look into it, it is probable that we get as much pleasure, if not more, from them. We may have underestimated just how restricted our restrictiveness, in thrall to the forbidden and its rules, may make us.

    Much has been written of the forbidden pleasures. But what of the unforbidden" pleasures? Unforbidden Pleasures is the singular new book from Adam Phillips, the author of Missing Out , Going Sane , and On Balance . Here, with his signature insight and erudition, Phillips takes Oscar Wilde as a springboard for a deep dive into the meanings and importance of the unforbidden, from the fall of our "first parents," Adam and Eve, to the work of the great psychoanalytic thinkers.Forbidden pleasures, he argues, are the ones we tend to think about, yet when you look into it, it is probable that we get as much pleasure, if not more, from unforbidden pleasures than from those that are taboo. And we may have underestimated just how restricted our restrictiveness, in thrall to the forbidden and its rules, may make us. An ambitious book that speaks to the precariousness of modern life, Unforbidden Pleasures explores the philosophical, psychological, and social dynamics that govern human desire and shape our everyday reality."A dense, challenging, provocative meditation on morality and identity." - Kirkus Reviews Phillips is . . . a bit like an Oliver Sacks of psychoanalysis, both affable and unalarmed. - Gail Caldwell, The Boston Sunday Globe Phillips is one of the finest prose stylists in the language, an Emerson for our time. - John Banville Britain's foremost psychoanalytic writer. - The New Yorker "Phillips gives an illuminating account" - Catherine Humble, The Times Literary Supplement "[Phillips] writes playfully and suggestively on a topic that tends to get written about in the most unliterary of languages. This attractive quality in his work - its inviting (and mildly paradoxical) combination of the provocative and the ambivalent - is evident from the very beginning of his new collection, Unforbidden Pleasures ." - Mark O'Connell, New York Times Book Review "This slim volume is rich in psychological, philosophical, and literary insight." - Publishers Weekly "There is a prismatic quality to Adam Phillips's thought. Pour in some Oscar Wilde or Emerson, Kafka, or, most often, Freud, and watch the British writer and psychoanalyst's refractions multiply, mesh, and twist in kaleidescopic considerations" - Chris Wallace, Interview Magazine " Curiously addictive" - The Millions "It is a real pleasure to glide through philosophy, literature and psychoanalysis with Adam Phillips. Through his fine essays, one finds oneself paying attention to things that repay reflection without demanding allegiance to a new set of principles." - Michael S. Roth, The Washington Post "

    Shocking, brilliant, important. A fine addition to the feminist canon. - Emma Jane Unsworth For the first time I feel like I PROPERLY understand my vagina! I wish I had read this 23 years ago! - Scarlett Curtis From earliest childhood, girls are misled about their bodies, encouraged to describe their genitalia with cute and silly names rather than anatomically correct terms. In our schools and in our culture, we are coy about women while putting straight men's sexuality front and centre. Girls grow up feeling ashamed about their periods, about the appearance of their vulvas, about their own desires. They grow up without a full and honest sex education, and this lack of knowledge has serious consequences: the number of women attending cervical screening appointments in the UK is at a 20-year low while labiaplasty is the fastest growing type of plastic surgery in the world. Vagina provides girls and women with information they need about their own bodies - about the vagina, the hymen, the clitoris, the orgasm; about conditions like endometriosis and vulvodynia. It confronts taboos, such as abortion, miscarriage, infertility and masturbation. It tackles vital social issues like period poverty, female genital mutilation and the rights of transgender women. It is honest and moving as Lynn Enright shares her personal stories but this is about more than one woman - this is a book that will provoke thousands of conversations. We urgently need to talk about women's sexual and reproductive health, about our experiences of sex and pregnancy and pain and pleasure. Vagina: A Re-Education will help us do just that.

    'You're aroused my most cherished fantasy . . . to be the slave of a woman, a beautiful woman, whom I love, whom I worship-!'A shocking exploration of masochism, narcissism, and sexual power, Venus in Furs brought instant notoriety to its author for its unprecedented portrayal of a man who passionately makes himself the slave of the woman he loves. Sacher-Masoch freely mixes philosophy and pornography with the story of Severin von Kusiemski, a European nobleman who finds his ideal of voluptuous cruelty under the tutelage of the merciless beauty Wanda von Dunajew.More than a lurid tale of sexual obsession and perversion, Venus in Furs is a daring successor to the writings of the Marquis de Sade. Pioneering in its revelations about the pain of love and the love of pain, Sacher-Masoch's masterpiece remains a classic literary statement on sexual submission and control.

    Title: Vicarious Kinks: S&m in the Socio-legal Imaginary
    Author: KHAN UMMNI

    Who decides where "normal" stops and "perverse" begins? In Vicarious Kinks, Ummni Khan looks at the mass of claims that film, feminism, the human sciences, and law make about sadomasochism and its practitioners, and the way those claims become the basis for the legal regulation of sadomasochist pornography and practice. Khan's audacious proposal is that for film, feminism, law, and science, the constant focus on taboo sexuality is a form of "vicarious kink" itself.

    Rather than attempt to establish the "truth" about sadomasochism, Vicarious Kinks asks who decides that sadomasochism is perverse, examining how various fields present their claims to truth when it comes to sadomasochism. The first monograph by a new scholar working at the juncture of law and sexuality, Vicarious Kinks challenges the myth of law as an objective adjudicator of sexual truth.

    Title: Visionary Women: How Rachel Carson, Jane Jacobs, Jane Goodall, & Alice Waters Changed Our World
    Author: BARNET ANDREA


    Four influential women we thought we knew well--Jane Jacobs, Rachel Carson, Jane Goodall, and Alice Waters--and how they spearheaded the modern progressive movement


    This is the story of four visionaries who profoundly shaped the world we live in today. Together, these women--linked not by friendship or field, but by their choice to break with convention--showed what one person speaking truth to power can do. Jane Jacobs fought for livable cities and strong communities; Rachel Carson warned us about poisoning the environment; Jane Goodall demonstrated the indelible kinship between humans and animals; and Alice Waters urged us to reconsider what and how we eat.

    With a keen eye for historical detail, Andrea Barnet traces the arc of each woman's career and explores how their work collectively changed the course of history. While they hailed from different generations, Carson, Jacobs, Goodall, and Waters found their voices in the early sixties. At a time of enormous upheaval, all four stood as bulwarks against 1950s corporate culture and its war on nature. Consummate outsiders, each prevailed against powerful and mostly male adversaries while also anticipating the disaffections of the emerging counterculture.

    All told, their efforts ignited a transformative progressive movement while offering people a new way to think about the world and a more positive way of living in it.

    Title: Was She Pretty
    Author: SHAPTON LEANNE

    A SINGULAR EXPLORATION OF MODERN LOVE AND ALL ITS DEMONS, IN WORDS AND DRAWINGS In this brilliant gem of a book, artist/writer Leanne Shapton weaves together a voyeuristic tale of love and life through epigrammatic vignettes and sleek line drawings. Entire relationships are encapsulated in a few, stingingly perfect lines: ""Colleen was Walter's ex-girlfriend from med school. She loved to dance with men at weddings."" Pricking our insecurities, Shapton introduces us to Kim, whose ex ""kept a drawerful of love letters in a kitchen drawer . . . She would stare at it while she cooked."" And Ben's ex, ""a physiotherapist for the U.S. men's and women's Olympic swim teams. She wore small white shorts year-round."" Fascinated by her own jealousy, Shapton interviewed acquaintances about their anxieties and peccadilloes, and the result is a book of surpassing originality: one of those unusual books that comes along to delight us all, like An Exaltation of Larks or Love, Loss, and What I Wore or Griffin and Sabine. Was She Pretty? can also share the shelf with the work of the legendary William Steig, whose early, psychologically revealing work inspired Shapton. An unflinching observer of human behavior, she invites us to peer into the hearts and minds of her characterswhile reminding us that we shouldn't be surprised if we see ourselves staring right back.

    Title: What do Women Want? Exploding the Myth of Dependency
    Author: ORBACH SUSIE & EICHENBAUM LUISE

    The modern relationship is in crisis. Why? In this pioneering work, Susie Orbach and Luise Eichenbaum pinpoint the deceptively simply question that lies at the root of all its problems and ask - what do women want? Torn between all the demands of today's society, many women feel that they pour love, commitment and understanding into their relationships, but that it is not returned in kind. He seems secure and independent, she feels insecure and needy. The truth is that both men and women are dependent... In crystal-clear prose, Susie Orbach and Luise Eichenbaum explore the relationships of men and women, explaining how men have learned to "manage" their dependency needs very differently to women, and why women feel so dependent and hungry for love. They show conclusively why dependency on both sides is the essential core of any successful relationship and how it offers a new blueprint for the future. First published in 1983, this feminist classic has been thoroughly revised for today's audience. Its message is as relevant as ever.
