<b>Daniel H. Pink, the #1 bestselling author of <i>Drive</i> and <i>To Sell Is Human</i>, unlocks the scientific secrets to good timing to help you flourish at work, at school, and at home.</b><br /><br />Everyone knows that timing is everything. But we don't know much about timing itself. Our lives are a never-ending stream of "when" decisions: when to start a business, schedule a class, get serious about a person. Yet we make those decisions based on intuition and guesswork.<br /><br />Timing, it's often assumed, is an art. In W<i>hen: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing</i>, Pink shows that timing is really a science.<br /><br />Drawing on a rich trove of research from psychology, biology, and economics, Pink reveals how best to live, work, and succeed. How can we use the hidden patterns of the day to build the ideal schedule? Why do certain breaks dramatically improve student test scores? How can we turn a stumbling beginning into a fresh start? Why should we avoid going to the hospital in the afternoon? Why is singing in time with other people as good for you as exercise? And what is the ideal time to quit a job, switch careers, or get married?<br /><br />In <i>When</i>, Pink distills cutting-edge research and data on timing and synthesizes them into a fascinating, readable narrative packed with irresistible stories and practical takeaways that give readers compelling insights into how we can live richer, more engaged lives.

<b>TORCH FAT, LOOK YOUNGER, AND START LOSING YOUR BELLY—IN JUST 14 DAYS!</b><br /><br />NBC News health and wellness contributor David Zinczenko, the #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Zero Sugar Diet, Zero Belly Diet,</i> the Abs Diet series, and the Eat This, Not That! series, discloses why some of us stay thin and some of us lose weight with ease—and reveals the secret to how you can stay lean for life. The answer lies within your metabolism, the body’s crucial, energy-burning engine that for so many of us is revving at less than half speed. With the help of this book, you can quickly and easily turn your metabolism into a fat-melting machine.<br />            <br /><i>The Super Metabolism Diet</i> features daily menus, handy shopping guides, a vast trove of amazing (though optional) workouts, and tons of delicious recipes—all designed to get your metabolism firing hotter than ever before! So say goodbye to bloat, harsh dieting, weight-loss fads, and even stress. Say bye-bye to belly fat and hello to a new and improved you.<br />            <br /><i>The Super Metabolism Diet </i>is built on five core pillars (captured in a handy acronym) to ensure that your body burns more energy and stores less fat: <br />  <br /> <b>S</b>uper Proteins, Super Carbs, and Super Fats<br /> <b>U</b>pping Your Energy Expenditure <br /> <b>P</b>ower Snacks <br /> <b>E</b>ssential Calories, Vitamins, and Minerals<br /> <b>R</b>elaxing and Recharging<br /><br /> As Zinczenko reports: If you’re heavier than you want to be or moving sluggishly through your days, you don’t need to cut your favorite foods from your diet. You just need to up your intake of core proteins that will build more energy-burning muscle, consume the healthiest fats that help increase satiety and speed nutrients throughout your body, and reach for plenty of good-for-you carbs—yes, carbs!—that provide essential fiber.<br />             <br /> The result will be a stronger, leaner, happier you. And you’ll be stunned at how good you look and feel in no time at all.<br /> <br /><b>“You’ll see results almost immediately, never be hungry, and watch the weight keep coming off!”—Michele Promaulayko, editor in chief of <i>Cosmopolitan</i> and former editor in chief of <i>Women’s Health</i></b>

<p>The thyroid is the new hot topic in health. Across age groups, from baby boomers and their parents to millennials and even children, more and more people—women especially—are hearing that their thyroids are to blame for their fatigue, weight gain, brain fog, memory issues, aches and pains, tingles and numbness, insomnia, hair loss, hot flashes, sensitivity to cold, constipation, bloating, anxiety, depression, heart palpitations, loss of libido, restless legs, and more. Everyone wants to know how to free themselves from the thyroid trap.</p><p>As the thyroid has gotten more and more attention, though, these symptoms haven’t gone away—people aren’t healing. Labeling someone with “Hashimoto’s,” “hypothyroidism,” or the like doesn’t explain the myriad health issues that person may experience. That’s because there’s a pivotal truth that goes by unnoticed: A thyroid problem is not the ultimate reason for a person’s illness. A problematic thyroid is yet one more symptom of something much larger than this one small gland in the neck. It’s something much more pervasive in the body, something invasive, that’s responsible for the laundry list of symptoms and conditions attributed to thyroid disease.</p><p>In <i>Medical Medium Thyroid Healing</i>, Anthony William, the Medical Medium, reveals an entirely new take on the epidemic of thyroid illness. Empowering readers to become their own thyroid experts, he explains in detail what the source problem really is, including what’s going on with inflammation, autoimmune disease, and dozens more symptoms and conditions, then offers a life-changing toolkit to rescue the thyroid and bring readers back to health and vitality. It’s an approach unlike any other, and as his millions of fans and followers will tell you, it’s the approach that gets results.</p>

<b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER • A timely and important new book that challenges everything we think we know about cultivating true belonging in our communities, organizations, and culture, from the #1 bestselling author of <i>Rising Strong, Daring Greatly, </i>and <i>The Gifts of Imperfection</i></b><br /><b><br />HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK CLUB PICK<br /></b> <br />“True belonging doesn’t require us to <i>change</i> who we are. It requires us to <i>be</i> who we are.” Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives—experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In <i>Braving the Wilderness,</i> Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging.<br /><br /> Brown argues that we’re experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other. She writes, “True belonging requires us to believe in and belong to ourselves so fully that we can find sacredness both in being a part of something and in standing alone when necessary. But in a culture that’s rife with perfectionism and pleasing, and with the erosion of civility, it’s easy to stay quiet, hide in our ideological bunkers, or fit in rather than show up as our true selves and brave the wilderness of uncertainty and criticism. But true belonging is not something we negotiate or accomplish with others; it’s a daily practice that demands integrity and authenticity. It’s a personal commitment that we carry in our hearts.” Brown offers us the clarity and courage we need to find our way back to ourselves and to each other. And that path cuts right through the wilderness. Brown writes, “The wilderness is an untamed, unpredictable place of solitude and searching. It is a place as dangerous as it is breathtaking, a place as sought after as it is feared. But it turns out to be the place of true belonging, and it’s the bravest and most sacred place you will ever stand.”

<b>The internationally renowned, clinically tested, revolutionary diet program to lose weight, fight disease, and live a longer, healthier life.</b><br />  <br /> Can what you eat determine how long, and how well, you live? The clinically proven answer is yes, and <i>The Longevity Diet</i> is easier to follow than you'd think. The culmination of 25 years of research on aging, nutrition, and disease across the globe, this unique program lays out a simple solution to living to a healthy old age through nutrition. The key is combining the healthy everyday eating plan the book outlines, with the scientifically engineered fasting-mimicking diet, or FMD; the FMD, done just 3-4 times a year, does away with the misery and starvation most of us experience while fasting, allowing you to reap all the beneficial health effects of a restrictive diet, while avoiding negative stressors, like low energy and sleeplessness. Valter Longo, director of the Longevity Institute at USC and the Program on Longevity and Cancer at IFOM in Milan, designed the FMD after making a series of remarkable discoveries in mice, then in humans, indicating that specific diets can activate stem cells and promote regeneration and rejuvenation in multiple organs to significantly reduce risk for diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease. Longo’s simple pescatarian daily eating plan and the periodic fasting-mimicking techniques can both yield impressive results. Low in proteins and sugars and rich in healthy fats and plant-based foods, The Longevity Diet is proven to help you: <br />  <br />    • Lose weight and reduce abdominal fat<br />    • Extend your healthy lifespan with simple everyday changes<br />    • Prevent age-related muscle and bone loss<br />    • Build your resistance to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's and cancer<br />  <br /> Longo’s healthy, life span-extending program is based on an easy-to-adopt pescatarian plan along with the fasting-mimicking diet no more than 4 times a year, just 5 days at a time. Including 30 easy recipes for an everyday diet based on Longo's five pillars of longevity, <i>The Longevity Diet</i> is the key to living a longer, healthier, more fulfilled life.
