<b>This groundbreaking book explains why women experience burnout differently than men—and provides a simple, science-based plan to help women minimize stress, manage emotions, and live a more joyful life.</b><br /><br /><b><b>“Essential reading.”—<i>Bustle</i></b><br /></b><br /> Burnout. Many women in America have experienced it. What’s expected of women and what it’s really like to be a woman in today’s world are two very different things—and women exhaust themselves trying to close the gap between them. How can you “love your body” when every magazine cover has ten diet tips for becoming “your best self”? How do you “lean in” at work when you’re already operating at 110 percent and aren’t recognized for it? How can you live happily and healthily in a sexist world that is constantly telling you you’re too fat, too needy, too noisy, and too selfish?<br /><br /> Sisters Emily Nagoski, PhD, and Amelia Nagoski, DMA, are here to help end the cycle of feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. Instead of asking us to ignore the very real obstacles and societal pressures that stand between women and well-being, they explain with compassion and optimism what we’re up against—and show us how to fight back. In these pages you’ll learn<br /><br /> • what you can do to complete the biological stress cycle—and return your body to a state of relaxation<br /> • how to manage the “monitor” in your brain that regulates the emotion of frustration<br /> • how the Bikini Industrial Complex makes it difficult for women to love their bodies—and how to defend yourself against it<br /> • why rest, human connection, and befriending your inner critic are keys to recovering and preventing burnout<br /><br /> With the help of eye-opening science, prescriptive advice, and helpful worksheets and exercises, all women will find something transformative in these pages—and will be empowered to create positive change. Emily and Amelia aren’t here to preach the broad platitudes of expensive self-care or insist that we strive for the impossible goal of “having it all.” Instead, they tell us that we are enough, just as we are—and that wellness, true wellness, is within our reach.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Burnout</i></b><br /><br /> “<i>Burnout</i> is the gold standard of self-help books, delivering cutting-edge science with energy, empathy, and wit. The authors know exactly what’s going on inside your frazzled brain and body, and exactly what you can do to fix it. . . . Truly life-changing.”<b>—Sarah Knight, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Calm the F*ck Down</i></b>

Praise For WHEN THE BODY SAYS NO<br /><br />"Once thought to be in the domain of genes, our health and behavior have recently been revealed to be controlled by our perception of the environment and our beliefs. Gabor Mate, M.D., skillfully blends recent advances in biomedicine with the personal insights of his patients to provide empowering insight into how deeply developmental experiences shape our health, behavior, attitudes, and relationships. A must-read for health professionals and lay readers seeking awareness of how the mind controls health."<br />-- Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., cellular biologist<br /><br />"The interviewees' stories are often touching and haunting. . . . Mate carefully explains the biological mechanisms that are activated when stress and trauma exert a powerful influence on the body, and he backs up his claims with compelling evidence from the field. . . . Both the lay and specialist reader will be grateful for the final chapter, 'The Seven A's of Healing,' in which Mate presents an open formula for healing and the prevention of illness from hidden stress."<br />-- Quill & Quire<br /><br />"Medical science searches high and low for the causes of cancer, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and a host of other conditions. Yet it often ignores one of the most pervasive factors leading to illness: the hidden stresses embedded in our daily lives. In this important book, Dr. Gabor Mate combines a passionate examination of his patients' life histories with lucid explanations of the science behind mind-body unity. He makes a compelling argument for the importance of understanding stress both in the causation of disease and in the restoration of health."<br />-- Richard Earle, Ph.D. <br />Director of the Canadian Institute of Stress/ Hans Selye Foundation<br /><br />Praise For SCATTERED<br /><br />"One of the most comprehensive and accessible books about Attention Deficit Disorder."<br />-- Publishers Weekly (starred review)<br /><br />"Utterly sensible and deeply moving."<br />-- The Vancouver Sun

Now featuring a new introduction by Dr. M. Scott Peck, the twenty-fifth anniversary edition of the classic bestseller <I>The Road Less Traveled, </I>celebrated by <I>The</I> <I>Washington Post</I> as “not just a book but a spontaneous act of generosity.”<BR><BR>Perhaps no book in this generation has had a more profound impact on our intellectual and spiritual lives than <I>The Road Less Traveled.</I> With sales of more than seven million copies in the United States and Canada, and translations into more than twenty-three languages, it has made publishing history, with more than ten years on the <I>New York Times</I> bestseller list. <BR> <BR>Written in a voice that is timeless in its message of understanding, <I>The Road Less Traveled</I> continues to help us explore the very nature of loving relationships and leads us toward a new serenity and fullness of life. It helps us learn how to distinguish dependency from love; how to become a more sensitive parent; and ultimately how to become one’s own true self.<BR> <BR>Recognizing that, as in the famous opening line of his book, “Life is difficult” and that the journey to spiritual growth is a long one, Dr. Peck never bullies his readers, but rather guides them gently through the hard and often painful process of change toward a higher level of self-understanding.
