<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>One of <i>Elle</i>’s “Best Books to Read in Spring 2019”<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>

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER • An urgently needed guide to the alarming increase in anxiety and stress experienced by girls from elementary school through college, from the author of <i>Untangled</i></b><br /><br /><b>“An invaluable read for anyone who has girls, works with girls, or cares about girls—for everyone!”—Claire Shipman, author of <i>The Confidence Code </i>and <i>The Confidence Code for Girls</i></b><br /><br /> Though anxiety has risen among young people overall, studies confirm that it has skyrocketed in girls. Research finds that the number of girls who said that they often felt nervous, worried, or fearful jumped 55 percent from 2009 to 2014, while the comparable number for adolescent boys has remained unchanged. As a clinical psychologist who specializes in working with girls, Lisa Damour, Ph.D., has witnessed this rising tide of stress and anxiety in her own research, in private practice, and in the all-girls’ school where she consults. She knew this had to be the topic of her new book.<br /><br /> In the engaging, anecdotal style and reassuring tone that won over thousands of readers of her first book,<i> Untangled</i>, Damour starts by addressing the facts about psychological pressure. She explains the surprising and underappreciated <i>value </i>of stress and anxiety: that stress can helpfully stretch us beyond our comfort zones, and anxiety can play a key role in keeping girls safe. When we emphasize the <i>benefits</i> of stress and anxiety, we can help our daughters take them in stride.<br /><br /> But no parents want their daughter to suffer from emotional overload, so Damour then turns to the many facets of girls’ lives where tension takes hold: their interactions at home, pressures at school, social anxiety among other girls and among boys, and their lives online. As readers move through the layers of girls’ lives, they’ll learn about the critical steps that adults can take to shield their daughters from the toxic pressures to which our culture—including we, as parents—subjects girls.<br /><br /> Readers who know Damour from <i>Untangled</i> or the <i>New York Times,</i> or from her regular appearances on <i>CBS News,</i> will be drawn to this important new contribution to understanding and supporting today’s girls.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Under Pressure</i></b><br /><br /> “Truly a must-read for parents, teachers, coaches, and mentors wanting to help girls along the path to adulthood.”<b>—Julie Lythcott-Haims, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>How to Raise an Adult</i> </b>

<p><b>Renowned primatologist Robert Sapolsky offers a completely revised and updated edition of his most popular work, with over 225,000 copies in print</b></p><p> Now in a third edition, Robert M. Sapolsky's acclaimed and successful <i>Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers</i> features new chapters on how stress affects sleep and addiction, as well as new insights into anxiety and personality disorder and the impact of spirituality on managing stress.<br />As Sapolsky explains, most of us do not lie awake at night worrying about whether we have leprosy or malaria. Instead, the diseases we fear-and the ones that plague us now-are illnesses brought on by the slow accumulation of damage, such as heart disease and cancer. When we worry or experience stress, our body turns on the same physiological responses that an animal's does, but we do not resolve conflict in the same way-through fighting or fleeing. Over time, this activation of a stress response makes us literally sick. <br />Combining cutting-edge research with a healthy dose of good humor and practical advice, <i>Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers</i> explains how prolonged stress causes or intensifies a range of physical and mental afflictions, including depression, ulcers, colitis, heart disease, and more. It also provides essential guidance to controlling our stress responses. This new edition promises to be the most comprehensive and engaging one yet.</p>
