Pubpsher: MIT Press
How to survive the digital revolution without getting trampled: your guide to online mindfulness, digital self-empowerment, cybersecurity, creepy ads, trustworthy information, and more. Feeling overwhelmed by an avalanche of online content? Anxious about identity theft? Unsettled by the proliferation of fake news? Welcome to the digital revolution. Wait—wasn't the digital revolution supposed to make our lives better? It was going to be fun and put the world at our fingertips. What happened? Keep Calm and Log On is a survival handbook that will help you achieve online mindfulness and overcome online helplessness—the feeling that tech is out of your control—with tips for handling cybersecurity, creepy ads, untrustworthy information, and much more. Taking a cue from the famous World War II morale-boosting slogan (“Keep Calm and Carry On”), Gus Andrews shows us how to adapt the techniques our ancestors used to survive hard times, so we can live our best lives online. She explains why media and technology stress us out, and offers empowering tools for coping. Mindfulness practices can help us stay calm and conserve our attention purposefully. Andrews shares the secret of understanding our own opinions'' “family trees” in order to identify misleading “fake news.” She provides tools for unplugging occasionally, overcoming feelings that we are “bad at technology,” and taking charge of our security and privacy. Andrews explains how social media algorithms keep us from information we need and why “creepy ads” seem to follow us online. Most importantly, she urges us to work to rebuild the trust in our communities that the internet has broken.

Pubpsher: Pearson UK
You can start living a happy and worry-free life. Discover how, whatever life throws at you, you can keep calm and carry on. Using the latest, proven-to-work techniques, leading psychologist Professor Daniel Freeman and psychology writer Jason Freeman harness all the leading research to help you overcome your worries, anxieties and fears so you feel more calm, composed and centred.
Are you sometimes stressed, anxious, or emotional? Do you ever feel something is missing, even when you think you should be happy? Are there people with whom you dont get on well but wish you did? Have you ever wondered why you behave a certain way, do or dont do certain things, or have done something you now regret? This is not a typical self-help book, because self-help books are usually read by people who think they have a problem to solve. This book is for everyone. Using straightforward jargon-free language it discusses many of the difficult issues of life, most of which are likely to affect us or someone we know at one time or another. It includes short discussions of stress, relationships, love affairs, work, parenting, sibling rivalry, motherhood, divorce, weddings, Christmas, teenagers, arguments, criticism, depression, communication, childhood, bullying, chronic pain, self-harm, addiction, suicide, bereavement, kindness, abuse, the battle of the sexes and more. People who can stay calm and content no matter what life throws at them all have similar thoughts and attributes which can be learnt by anyone. The central theme of this book is self-esteem and how it is affected every day by our circumstances and the people we come across. We are usually unaware that it is our self-esteem that drives our emotions, thoughts, and actions. The authors clients suggested this book be written so anyone could learn how to stay calm and content no matter what life throws at them. Personal stories highlight how you can control or change how you feel about yourself, and how you can positively influence your life and the lives of everyone around you.
Calm Parents, Happy Kids is the UK version of Dr Laura Markham's hugely successful and ground-breaking book, Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids. Now adapted for UK audiences, this practical and inspiring book reveals a three step programme that will transform family life. Most parenting books focus on changing a child's behaviour, but the truth is that children only change when their relationship with their parents changes. In Calm Parents, Happy Kids, Dr Laura Markham introduces an approach to parenting that eliminates threats, power struggles and manipulation, in favour of setting limits with empathy and communication. Bringing together the latest research in brain development with a focus on emotional awareness (for both parents and children), it will appeal to all parents who don’t want to force their children into compliance and lose their temper, but want to keep calm and help their children want to behave.
From the author of MAKE ME HOT comes a steamy tale of a popular heart surgeon and his four women, told in their own voices. They call him Dr. Feelgood. . . One woman would never be enough to satisfy noted cardiologist Dr. Makkai Worthy, better known by his sex partners as Dr. Feelgood. Womanizer extraordinaire, he's a chip off the old block of his rolling-stone papa and commitment isn't an option. At 37 and single, he's happier than he's ever been, living the lifestyle of the rich and fine. A gifted surgeon, Dr. Feelgood knows how to operate in the O.R. by day. But by night, it's his smooth operations in the bedroom that are driving his four main squeezes crazy. First, there's demanding-diva Georgia. She's bound and determined to be the doctor's one and only until suspicions arise that she's keeping something on the down low. Mary Jane is a sweetheart of a nurse who works in Dr. Feelgood's cardiology unit. He tries to stay hands off, until a player friend starts to make a move and he's forced to stake his claim. Self-absorbed Monday is as fast as the day is long, and she boasts that she can bag any man without getting serious; but the sexually talented Dr. Feelgood flips the script and uncovers another side of Monday. Spicy Salina's white husband is not one to share, so when he's sent to jail for choking the good doctor, the drama really begins. Dr. Feelgood's escapades as a true player could force him to finally settle down, or they might just motivate him to begin another affair of the heart. Watch out, because the ladies are lining up, and the doctor is in . . .

Keep Calm and Carry on (my second book) delves deeper into my past and the anxiety itself in an attempt to discover why the anxiety came about and how past experiences have impacted on my anxiety. This book will hopefully inspire you to do some investigating of your own into your anxiety and help you to overcome it.
29 MURDERS is based on a factual murder investigation of 29 murders of the famous Missing and Murdered Children case in Atlanta that took place from 1979 to 1981. Convicted and sentenced to life in a Georgia State prison was Wayne Williams for only two of the twenty-nine murders, a conviction that left many people around the country asking; if he only killed 2, who then killed the other 27? However, along came an anonymous letter that was written to Police Chief, Barry Mason describing its writer as being the real killer after thirty years of complete silence. This letter sparked a new investigation into a thirty year old case for fear the real killer had re-emerged. In charge of the investigation was Lieutenant Seville Patterson, who later convinced her retired police husband, John Sinclair to work with her on the case, because she feared that she could not trust anyone in the department. John on the other hand agreed to work with her because he believed that this was a very dangerous case, and it could get her killed if he did not work with her. And even with him on the case, both their lives were in danger. As a team, they set out to solve a case that was believed to be an impossible case to solve. And that belief was justified, because the two cops found themselves in a direct line of fire of a conspiracy that was reaching all the way to Washington, DC as well in the headquarters of the CIA. And they also found trouble in their own back yard, when they discovered that nine of the ten original police investigators on the case thirty years ago had all mysteriously met their demise, except one.
