            The Power of Discord: Why the ups and downs of relationships are the secret to building intimacy, resilience, and trust (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            This original look at how to foster connections, attachment, and resiliency explains why working through discord is the key to better relationships. You might think that perfect harmony is the defining characteristic of healthy relationships, but the truth is that human interacti...ons are messy, complicated, and confusing. And according to renowned psychologist Ed Tronick and paediatrician Claudia Gold, that is not only okay, but crucial to our social and emotional development. In The Power of Discord they show how working through the inevitable dissonance of human connection is the path to better relationships with romantic partners, family, friends, and colleagues. Dr. Tronick was one of the first researchers to show, via 'The Still-Face Experiment', that babies are profoundly affected by their parents' emotions and behaviour. His work, which brought about a foundational shift in our understanding of human development, shows that our highly evolved sense of self makes us separate, yet our survival depends on connection. Working through the volley of mismatch and repair in everyday life helps us form deep, lasting, trusting relationships, and resilience in times of stress and trauma, and a solid sense of self in the world. Drawing on Dr Tronick's research and Dr Gold's clinical experience, The Power of Discord is a refreshing and original look at our ability to relate to others and to ourselves.

            The world is awash in bullshit, and we're drowning in it. Politicians are unconstrained by facts. Science is conducted by press release. Startup culture elevates bullshit to high art. These days, calling bullshit is a noble act. Based on their popular, eponymous, course at the Un...iversity of Washington, professors Carl Bergstrom and Jevin West catalogue bullshit in its many forms, explaining where bullshit arose in our evolutionary past and why it is ubiquitous today. Calling Bullshit offers readers the tools to see through the obfuscations, deliberate and careless, that dominate every realm of our lives. In this lively guide Bergstrom, a computational biologist, and West, a statistician, teach us that calling bullshit is crucial to a properly functioning social group, whether it be a circle of friends, a community of academics, or the citizenry of a nation.

            This is a book about health science for non-scientists. All over the world today people are eating foods from nutrient starved soils - and all over the world the effects of nutrient hunger are being felt. An almost unheralded 1960s horticultural change put New Zealand on the pa...th of intergenerational sickness by amplifying the effect of the missing micronutrients in our soil. Accessibly written in the style of Bill Bryson's A Short History of Everything, Just Cause and Effect examines evidence-based papers from the silos of medicine, geography, biogeography, agriculture, horticulture and more to reach the conclusion - its not rocket science after all, its Just Cause and Effect.

            From journalist and self-described mouthy Jewish broad from New York, an in-depth and personal look of the byzantine and harrowing online world of white supremacists, from a woman who has studied the movement up close, and been targeted by it. Incels. White nationalists. QAnon. P...roud Boys. Patriot Front. There are so many extremist groups nowadays it's hard to keep track. Talia Lavin, however, was no stranger to the modern American white supremacist movement, even before it re-gained prominence in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election. Culture Warlords is a field guide to the racist right online, from a narrator who has herself become the frequent target of extremist trolls (including those at Fox News). Lavin is every skinhead's worst nightmare: a loud and unapologetic Jewish woman, funny, smart, and profoundly anti-racist, with the journalistic chops to expose the tactics and landscape of online hatemongers. In the book, she turns the lens of anti-Semitism, racism, and white power back on itself in an attempt to understand the online hate movement's schisms, recruiting tactics, and the threat it represents to the 2020 election and beyond. She reports on specific strategies utilized by neo-Nazis, Proud Boys, and QAnon to disseminate conspiracy theories, exposing their tactics and fighting fire with fire. A journalist who is proudly antifascist, Talia Lavin is a trailblazing voice of a new generation who is standing up to online hate.
