Central Avenue Publishing is proud to publish another book by the widely acclaimed poet Iain S. Thomas. As many have noted on various social media platforms, there have been some issues that have led to the delayed release of this book. For this, we apologise and hopefully the content of the book will clarify the circumstances surrounding this delay. We feel we should also point out that this is not technically a self-help book, but it does contain some poignant prose, poetry and stories which may or may not lead you to happiness.Mostly, it is the rather unfortunate chronicle of a man's attempt to write the book he’s promised his publisher, no matter the cost to his sanity.

Based on a reading of more than three hundred self-help books, Sandra K. Dolby examines this remarkably popular genre to define "self-help" in a way that's compelling to academics and lay readers alike. Self-Help Books also offers an interpretation of why these books are so popular, arguing that they continue the well-established American penchant for self-education, articulate problems of daily life and supposed solutions for them, and present their content in an accessible rather than arcane form and style. Using methods associated with folklore studies, Dolby then examines how the genre makes use of stories, aphorisms, and a worldview that is at once traditional and contemporary. The overarching premise of the study is that self-help books, much like fairy tales, take traditional materials, especially stories and ideas, and recast them into extended essays that people happily read, think about, try to apply, and then set aside when a new embodiment of the genre comes along.

Most contemporary discussions of sex differences assume that they are determined by society rather than biology. It is society that teaches little girls to be feminine and little boys to be masculine--society that tells women to respond to babies and men to respond to sports. Reflecting the fashionable idea that male and female roles have been "socially constructed," most commentators speak of gender instead of sex. Because men and women are virtually interchangeable, so the argument goes, men should do an equal share of domestic and childrearing work so that women can compete equally outside the home There's only one problem with this beguiling vision of androgyny. Whatever we might like to believe, as Dr. Steven Rhoads shows, sex distinctions remain a deeply rooted part of human nature. In "Taking Sex Differences Seriously," Rhoads assembles a wealth of scientific evidence showing that these differences are "hardwired" into our biology. They range from the subtle (men get a chemical high from winning while women get one from nursing) to the profound (women with high testosterone levels are more promiscuous, more competitive, and more conflicted about having children than those with average levels.) Rhoads explores disparities in aggression and dominance, in sexuality and nurturing. He shows how denial of these differences has helped to create the sexual revolution, fatherless families, and policies such as Title IX, and the call for universal day care. But while insisting that we must take sex differences seriously, Rhoads also advocates discouraging some natural tendencies, like men's desire for irresponsible sex, and encouraging others, like women's greater interest and talent in caring for babies. In this provocative exploration of the masculine and feminine, Steven Rhoads dispels contemporary clichés and spotlights biological realities. Meticulously researched and elegantly written, "Taking Sex Differences Seriously" is a groundbreaking look at the way we are.

Learn to separate your self-esteem from outside influences—like social media—with advice from a nationally recognized addictions expert. Are you unhappy and don’t know why or how to fix it? Do you compare yourself to others and end up feeling bad about yourself? Do you worry about what others think about you? Is being successful and having it all not enough? Have you given up on yourself? If your answer is yes to any of the above, you may have other-dependent esteem. According to licensed counselor and self-esteem expert Patricia Noll, other-dependent esteem means that our happiness and self-worth depend upon something outside of ourselves, such as: What we have, do, and know What others think about us Looking good Being right Achievements and accomplishments Being the best And more. The problem is that nothing outside of ourselves can truly make us happy—at least not for long. Other-dependent esteem creates a cycle of stress, addictive behavior, dependency, and ultimately deep unhappiness. In Good With Me, Noll presents the same revolutionary approach that has helped her clients at Focus One, an outpatient substance abuse program, shift from other-dependent esteem to true, self-dependent esteem—and experience freedom from crippling effects of other-dependency. This simple, practical, step-by-step solution will also help you finally achieve lasting happiness from the inside out, regardless of circumstances. “If you have ever reached a goal and yet not felt satisfied, reading this book will show you why that is and how you can change that. Permanently.” —Laura Atchison, bestselling author of What Would a Wise Woman Do?

Do you want to be happier every day? Like almost everything else in life, Happiness has a formula or blueprint....specific steps you can take to become happier. Blueprint for Happiness simplifies that formula so that readers can experience more happiness daily. Happiness for many of us has been elusive; hard to get and hard to keep. I've been one of those people and maybe you have been too. I decided to write Blueprint for Happiness to share what I've learned over the years about creating true happiness in my life. I am a happy person now, and I want you to be happy too. Happy feels good. It warms your heart and it is believed to keep you healthier. Being a happy person draws people to you; your happiness feels good to others too. In speaking with others as I researched this book, I discovered that most people can tell you why they're not happy, but they have a hard time pinning down exactly what makes them happy. They know what it feels like and they remember important times in their lives when they felt really happy, but they seem to believe that happiness is random....that it happiness happens when it happens. I don't believe that happiness is random. I believe that by changing a few behaviors and beliefs that happiness can become your norm. I also believe that there are core behaviors and beliefs that lead to greater happiness. Helping you to discover what makes you happy, and how to be happy more consistently is the purpose of this book. Blueprint for Happiness shares with readers what I believe is the best and shortest route to feeling genuinely happy on a daily basis. In addition, Blueprint for Happiness helps the reader to explore what happiness means to him, to determine how much happiness he is routinely experiencing right now, and to learn how to create more happiness in his life. While Blueprint for Happiness is not a Self Hypnosis book, I have included 2 Self Hypnosis inductions for those who want to kick start their program into high gear, as well as 2 Self Hypnosis Session scripts that were created expressly to help those readers who want to ramp up their happiness program. And to further support your goal for greater happiness, I have included a FREE professional audio Self Hypnosis session download, valued at $29. This session will help you to feel happier and happier; it was created specifically for readers of this book to assist you as you begins to create your own blueprint for happiness. Details for obtaining the Self Hypnosis session are found in the last chapter of the book. If you are not routinely happy, you deserve to be. Regardless of your current situation, I believe that you have ultimate control over how much happiness you experience in your life Now might be the perfect time to learn how to wield all that power!. If you want more happiness in your life, read this book!

All of us have intuition that tells us what we need to do to make ourselves happy. As we learn to trust this intuition our lives become less stressful and more fulfilling because we are being true to ourselves and not following everyone else. This book is meant to inspire you to learn to trust that intuition, and find what works for you individually to calm your life and enhance it to the best of your ability. The writing style is playful and brings insight to serious topics so that the reader can relate and learn to enhance their life and decrease the stress that living can cause. The book jokes about dumb clichs that people use to try to comfort others, or to avoid the pain in life and the feelings that follow. It also teaches that if we do not feel the bad in life as well as the good, we will not grow. When we hit an obstacle in life, a decision is made whether to bang our head against the wall or try another direction to see where it leads. The point is to learn and grow in the process. The hope in this book is that you will think seriously about what you are doing to make yourself happy in this long life we are living.

New Statesman's Best Books of the Year, 2018 Mail on Sunday, Books of the Year, 2018 We plan, as the old proverb says, and God laughs. But most of us don't find it all that funny when things go wrong. Most of us want love, a nice home, good work, and happy children. Many of us grew up with parents who made these things look relatively easy and assumed we would get them, too. So what do you do if you don't? What do you do when you feel you've messed it all up and your friends seem to be doing just fine? For Christina Patterson, it was her job as a journalist that kept her going through the ups and downs of life. And then she lost that, too. Dreaming of revenge and irritated by self-help books, she decided to do the kind of interviews she had never done before. The resulting conversations are surprising, touching and often funny. There's Ken, the first person to be publicly fired from a FTSE-100 board. There's Winston, who fell through a ceiling onto a purple coffin. There's Louise, whose baby was seriously ill, but who still worried about being fat. And through it all, there's Christina, eating far too many crisps as she tries to pick up the pieces of her life. The Art of Not Falling Apart is a joyous, moving and sometimes shockingly honest celebration of life as an adventure, one where you ditch your expectations, raise a glass and prepare for a rocky ride.

I didn’t just wake up one day understanding how to take care of myself. I had to learn how to do so over time, and I continue to learn—each and every day. This is a process, and my body is constantly changing. So is yours. And when I learned how to accept that I will always be like this, I relaxed. Our bodies do not stand still for time. When you understand yourself and connect to how you can become body smart, you realize pretty quickly that the perfect, the ideal is not the goal. Instead, the goal is feeling good in your body. That’s what leads to confidence, to feeling and looking fit, and being pretty happy. Doesn’t that sound great? I think so! In almost every interview she gives, Kate Hudson is asked the same questions: What do you eat? How do you stay so fit? What workout do you do? What’s your secret? Well, the secret is that the sound bites the media loves so much don’t tell the story, and the steps you need to take to have a healthy, vibrant and happy life can’t be captured in a short interview. The key to living well, and healthy, is to plug into what your body needs, understanding that one size does not fit all, all the time, and being truly honest with yourself about your goals and desires. Like everyone else, Kate is constantly on the move, with a life full of work, family, responsibilities and relationships. In Pretty Happy, Kate shows how she honors her relationship with herself through exercise, making the right choices about what she eats, and constantly going back to the drawing board and starting fresh, instead of holding herself to unrealistic standards of perfection and giving up when she falls short. Focusing on the Four Pillars of Health to enhance her well-being, Pretty Happy shows the benefits of: Cultivating an Intuitive Relationship With Your Body Eating Well Awakening Your Body through movement The Miracle of Mindfullness Full of questionnaires to help you assess your Body Type and your stress levels, advice about cleanses and keeping your diet and body balanced, and plenty of interactive Drawing Board exercises, Pretty Happy is a beautiful, insightful, and personal look at health from the inside out, an authentic plan for an authentic life from a woman who truly lives what she speaks. “Kate Hudson’s Pretty Happy is a smart, insightful and realistic primer for making healthy habits part of your everyday life. I met Kate in person, and judging by my impression of her, she must be doing things right. From exercise to mindfulness to knowing what your body really needs to thrive, she pushes you to throw away your ideas around perfection and find your own Pretty Happy.”—Alejandro Junger, New York Times bestselling author of Clean, Clean Gut, and Clean Eats “Though it may seem like sporting that signature winning smile is her natural state of being, Kate Hudson’s path to happiness is an active one. She refuses to wait for happy to happen. Instead, Pretty Happy details all the ways she makes it a priority every day. Honoring our bodies with clean eating and smart cleansing, our minds with meditation, our purpose with authenticity, and our fun with spontaneity, playfulness and pole dancing - yes! - this is a hands-on approach to owning our potential. And if you've ever found yourself wondering how she maintains that famous bod, Kate is spilling the beans on that, too in her trademark best friend-who's-been-there style - lucky us!”—Daphne Oz
