            Based on over 3000 institutional records, Coleborne's study will have wider relevance outside of the history of medicine and psychiatry. It has a global perspective but focuses on specific destinations, and in so doing, contributes in an innovative way to global history and the h...istory of human migration. -- .

            Elite athletes play out their lives in the most public of arenas. Everything they do is analysed in real time and then picked apart in the pub afterwards. Why did they miss that penalty? What made him fall at the first jump? That press conference was a bit weird. We can all specu...late, but what's really going on? In Head in the Game we peer into this highly confidential, psychological world. We follow the journeys of ten athletes in their therapy sessions with Gary, from a rugby player arrested for a drunken brawl, through a homesick cricketer on tour, to a snooker player struggling with his feelings of inadequacy and low self-esteem. Structured around the emotions we all experience on a daily basis - shame, anger, fear, jealousy, love - chapter-by-chapter the inner traumas that impact their performance are revealed, explained and resolved. Gary Bloom is a sports psychotherapist. He works with footballers, cricketers, rugby players, jockeys, Olympians and many other athletes besides. They might seem like superheroes on the pitch, but in the dressing room they're just like anybody else, subject to the same emotional pressures that affect all of us. You might not be on fifty grand a week or hold a world record, but seeing how sportspeople overcome their demons is a powerful way of tackling your own, because as Gary says, happier players play better - in sport and in life.

            THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A radically new way of thinking about depression and anxiety What really causes depression and anxiety - and how can we really solve them? Award-winning journalist Johann Hari suffered from depression since he was a child ...and started taking anti-depressants when he was a teenager. He was told that his problems were caused by a chemical imbalance in his brain. As an adult, trained in the social sciences, he began to investigate whether this was true - and he learned that almost everything we have been told about depression and anxiety is wrong. Across the world, Hari found social scientists who were uncovering evidence that depression and anxiety are largely caused by key problems with the way we live today. Hari's journey took him from a mind-blowing series of experiments in Baltimore, to an Amish community in Indiana, to an uprising in Berlin. Once he had uncovered nine real causes of depression and anxiety, they led him to scientists who are discovering seven very different solutions - ones that work.
