It can often seem that we are utterly surrounded by temptation, from the ease of online shopping and the stream of targeted advertising encouraging us to greedily acquire yet more stuff, to the coffee, cake and fast-food shops that line our streets, beckoning us in to over-indulge on all the wrong things. It can feel like a constant battle to stay away from the temptations we know we shouldn´t give in to. Where exactly do these urges come from? If we know we shouldn´t do something, for the sake of our health, our pockets or our reputation, why is it often so very hard to do the right thing? Anyone who has ever wondered why they never seem to be able to stick to their diet, anyone to whom the world seems more vain and self-obsessed than ever, anyone who can´t understand why love-cheats pursue their extra-marital affairs, anyone who struggles to resist the lure of the comfy sofa, or anyone who makes themselves bitter through endless comparison with other people - this book is for you. The Science of Sin brings together the latest findings from neuroscience research to shed light on the universally fascinating subject of temptation - where it comes from, how to resist it and why we all tend to succumb from time to time. With each chapter inspired by one of the seven deadly sins, neurobiologist Jack Lewis illuminates the neural battles between temptation and restraint that take place within our brains, suggesting strategies to help us better manage our most troublesome impulses with the explicit goal of improving our health, our happiness and our productivity - helping us to say ´no!´ more often, especially when it really counts.
Are you tired of feeling worn out, sick, and overweight? Why is it that we experience weight gain, fatigue, aches and pains, illnesses, and memory loss as we get older? While these ailments do become more common in our 30s and 40s, they aren´t inevitable. In fact, we are perfectly capable of remaining young, slim, and vigorous - and our brains can absolutely stay clear and sharp - if we give them what they need. What´s that? The right foods, plenty of sleep, and the healthy movement our bodies are craving. The problem is that most of us don´t do that. We don´t realize what our bodies need, so we eat the wrong foods, skimp on sleep, and deprive our bodies of the movement they crave. Overwhelmed by the stresses and the pressures of our lives, we take a host of prescriptions, never realizing how they might be disrupting our body´s innate ability to heal. Most insidious of all, many of us lack the personal support and the community that we need to feel fully alive. Instead, we buy into the myth that age means decline. Best-selling author and internationally recognized expert in integrative and functional medicine, Dr. Frank Lipman shares the 10 key steps to live your best life! He breaks through the common myths and misconceptions surrounding aging and dieting, and he zeroes in on what you need to do in order to feel great. His two-week revitalize program and extended maintenance program bring together key information regarding insulin resistance and carbohydrate intolerance, gut and hormonal imbalances, sleep disorders, medications and supplements, and community support. The book also features: Delicious, nutritious recipes to support you along the way Handy shopping lists and meal plans Simple exercises, meditation practices, and restorative yoga sequences Information about powerful anti-aging and digestive supplements and vitamins And more! ... 1.

Learn Spanish with short stories volume one and two! Book 1 Are you looking for a fantastic and in-depth way to learn a new language? Why not treat your brain and go about it the natural way? That’s right, your brain has a natural way of learning language, and you simply aren’t taking advantage of it. Our brains are hardwired to act on a complex system of concepts and context clues to figure out language. Therefore, most polyglots in the world will tell you that the absolute best way to learn a language is by simply immersing yourself in it. With this audiobook, you’ll be going through different short stories, all of which following the story of a girl named Maria and her kind family from El Salvador. Throughout the short stories, you’ll be challenged and pushed to your limits - that’s how you know the method is working. You’ll never be left in the dust, but you will most certainly be immersed in the beautiful Spanish language. After every short story, there’s an English version, in case you got totally lost, and a section with grammar tips and vocabulary to help you round out every short story with a proper lesson. Book 2 So, you’re going to be hitting the road (or taking to the skies) and ending up somewhere that speaks Spanish. Before you get there, you want a book that will help you feel up to speed with a lot of the phrases that you’ll need as a traveler in Spanish-speaking countries. You’ve found the perfect match. This audiobook covers multiple scenarios that you’re going to run into as a traveler, such as picking bags up at the airport, purchasing food at a restaurant, and going shopping. It also offers limitless potential in terms of what it enables you to say by having the stories be set up in such a way that you’re still learning things even after multiple listens. One will have you feeling confident in your basic Spanish - more will have you learning extra vocabula... 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Fiore.

The first book to examine the science behind both mild and extreme compulsive behavior - using fascinating case studies to understand its deeper meaning and reveal the truth about human compulsion. Whether shopping with military precision or hanging the tea towels just so, compulsion is something most of us have witnessed in daily life. But compulsions exist along a broad continuum, and at the opposite end of these mild forms exist life-altering disorders. Sharon Begley´s meticulously researched book is the first of its kind to examine all of these behaviors - mild and extreme (OCD, hoarding, acquiring, exercise, even compulsions to do good) - together, as they should be, because while forms of compulsion may look incredibly different, these are actually all coping responses to varying degrees of anxiety. With a focus on personal stories of dozens of interviewees, Begley employs genuine compassion and gives meaningful context to their plight. Along the way she explores the role of compulsion in our fast paced culture, the brain science behind it, and strange manifestations of the behavior throughout history. Can´t Just Stop makes compulsion comprehensible and accessible, exploring how we can realistically grapple with it in ourselves and those we love. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Amanda Carlin.

If Beath and the gang thought life in the school had been hard in the weeks since the riZing, well, let´s just say they ain´t seen nothing yet. If only they had the resources to stay safe and secure in (Dec) East High, but they don´t, and now the big, wide zombie-ridden, scary-monster-lurking world awaits. Sounds crazy, but they need food - lots of food - and to find that they need to get to the shopping mall, and to do that they need transport, which will most likely be found at the car park near the train station. It all makes sense, right? Did we mention the new monsters? We didn´t, wow, that´s really an oversight on our behalf, as they´re a totally new type of devious nasty. Very dangerous. Still, things might work out well for the gang because...umm...erm...we´re sure there are reasons, we just can´t think of any right now.

One of Equinox´s ´´5 Books High Performers Should Read in June´´ Naomi Klein, author of No Is Not Enough and This Changes Everything: ´´In this revelatory survey of the dangers of the industrial food system, Lawless offers crucial tools for navigating it safely. The best ones have nothing to do with shopping advice: she asks us to think holistically about food, why it can´t be separated from other struggles for justice, and what it means to demand transformative change.´´ Mark Bittman, author of How to Cook Everything : ´´ A stirring call to action. Lawless has done a thorough job of describing how so much of what we eat doesn´t qualify as ´food´´´ Laurie David, Academy Award winning producer of An Inconvenient Truth and Fed Up: ´´You better read this book before you put another bite of food in your or your kids´ mouths!´´ Mary Esther Malloy, MA, Mindful Birth NY: ´´Groundbreaking... will get you thinking differently about how you nourish yourself and your family.´´ From the voice of a new generation of food activists, a passionate and deeply-researched call for a new food movement. If you think buying organic from Whole Foods is protecting you, you´re wrong. Our food-even what we´re told is good for us-has changed for the worse in the past 100 years, its nutritional content deteriorating due to industrial farming and its composition altered due to the addition of thousands of chemicals from pesticides to packaging. We simply no longer know what we´re eating. In Formerly Known as Food , Kristin Lawless argues that, because of the degradation of our diet, our bodies are literally changing from the inside out. The billion-dollar food industry is reshaping our food preferences, altering our brains, changing the composition of our microbiota, and even affecting the expression of our genes. Lawless chronicles how this is happening and what it means for our bodies, health, and survival. An independent journalist and nutrition expert, Lawless is emerging as the voice of a new generation of food thinkers. After years of ´´eat this, not that´´ advice from doctors, journalists, and food faddists, she offers something completely different. Lawless presents a comprehensive explanation of the problem-going beyond nutrition to issues of food choice, class, race, and gender-and provides a sound and simple philosophy of eating, which she calls the ´´Whole Egg Theory.´´ Destined to set the debate over food politics for the next decade, Formerly Known as Food speaks to a new generation looking for a different conversation about the food on our plates.

An exposé of pseudoscientific myths about our evolutionary past and how we should live today. We evolved to eat berries rather than bagels, to live in mud huts rather than condos, to sprint barefoot rather than play football - or did we? Are our bodies and brains truly at odds with modern life? Although it may seem as though we have barely had time to shed our hunter-gatherer legacy, biologist Marlene Zuk reveals that the story is not so simple. Popular theories about how our ancestors lived - and why we should emulate them - are often based on speculation, not scientific evidence. Armed with a razor-sharp wit and brilliant, eye-opening research, Zuk takes us to the cutting edge of biology to show that evolution can work much faster than was previously realized, meaning that we are not biologically the same as our caveman ancestors. Contrary to what the glossy magazines would have us believe, we do not enjoy potato chips because they crunch just like the insects our forebears snacked on. And women don’t go into shoe-shopping frenzies because their prehistoric foremothers gathered resources for their clans. As Zuk compellingly argues, such beliefs incorrectly assume that we’re stuck - finished evolving - and have been for tens of thousands of years. She draws on fascinating evidence that examines everything from adults’ ability to drink milk to the texture of our ear wax to show that we’ve actually never stopped evolving. From debunking the caveman diet to unraveling gender stereotypes, Zuk delivers an engrossing analysis of widespread paleofantasies and the scientific evidence that undermines them, all the while broadening our understanding of our origins and what they can really tell us about our present and our future. 1.
