Description : Across the globe, millions of women are reaching their mid-forties without having had a child. Although some are child-free by choice, many others are childless by circumstance and are struggling in a life they didn't foresee. Most people think that women without children either 'couldn't' or 'didn't want to' be mothers. The truth is much more complex. Jody Day would have liked to have had children, but it didn't work out that way. At the age of forty-four she realized that her quest to be a mother was at an end. She presumed that she was through the toughest part, but over the next couple of years she was hit by waves of grief, despair and isolation. Eventually she found her way and created the Gateway Women Network, helping many thousands of women worldwide. In Living the Life Unexpected, Jody Day addresses the taboo of childlessness and provides a powerful, practical 12-week guide to help women come to terms with their grief, and to move on to live creative, happy, meaningful, and fulfilling lives without children. Previously titled Rocking the Life Unexpected, this inspiring and practical guide to a life without children has been extensively revised and updated, and includes significant additional content including extracts from the stories of 24 women and 2 men from around the world.
Description : We're bombarded by messages telling us that more, bigger, and better things are the keys to happiness-but after we pile up the stuff and pile on the hours, we end up exhausted and broke on a planet full of trash. Sarah van Gelder and her colleagues at YES! Magazine have been exploring the meaning of real happiness for eighteen years. In this much-needed volume, they marshal fascinating research, in-depth essays, and compelling personal stories that lead to a life-altering conclusion: what makes us truly happy are the depth of our relationships, the quality of our communities, the contribution.
Description : The commonly held belief that you should ‘follow your passion’ is flawed. Many people believe that in order to be truly happy, you need to find and follow your one and only true passion. This is a very limiting approach to passion, and one not backed up by much research. In fact, recent research in the field of positive psychology has shown that you can live a more fulfilling life by choosing to pursue your whole life with passion. This has nothing to do with monetising the one thing that you love, but finding love in what you do. Susanna Halonen, also known as the Happyologist, introduces a new approach to passion that enables you to take control of your happiness. By highlighting the latest research in the field, including her own, Susanna explains how you can choose to unlock the passion inside you so that you can live a more fulfilling life. The secret to living life with passion is pursuing the passionate way of being, and the five keys to that secret are individually explored and discussed in this book. Each discussion is followed by questions of self-reflection that encourage you to create your own, unique action plan to start unlocking your passion. This book is an eye opener for those who want to understand the real science behind passion. It’s also a must-read for anyone who is looking for more fire, spark and positive energy in their lives and careers. Most of all, it’s a tool to help you to take a more proactive approach to unearthing your best self and setting out on the path towards passionate happiness. Praise for Screw Finding Your Passion: "Wanting happiness and knowing how to pursue it are two different things. Scientifically, happiness is a choice, not something you find. Using new research and practical tools, Halonen helps us change the formula for how we pursue passion, allowing us to find more ways of achieving our potential and creating joy." - Shawn Achor, positive psychology researcher and NYTimes bestselling author of The Happiness Advantage "It's very clear that Susanna Halonen is passionate about her work. And it's very clear that her work can help you unlock the passion within you." - Tal Ben-Shahar, author of international bestseller Happier "We all have times that life seems flat and not very fulfilling. Susanna's unique stance on passion will enable us to find that love for whatever we're doing right now." - Nina Grunfeld, founder of Life Clubs "This idea is so important it can't be ignored." - Elliot Newsome, founder and Managing Director of SKT Consulting

Description : '[Williams's] plays have brought the experience of black urban youth onto the stage' Observer Sucker Punch: 'As usual with Williams, the dialogue is crisp and bespoke: motives are mixed, nobody is a hero, nothing is just black and white.' The Times Joe Guy: 'Williams's dialogue ricochets around the stage like gunfire . . . energetic, exciting and entertaining.' Stage Category B: 'Category B is a harrowing play, but one shot through with both dark humour and tentative flickers of hope'. Daily Telegraph Baby Girl: 'The shocking thing about Roy Williams's Baby Girl is that it argues that there is a cyclical pattern to teenage pregnancy . . . Williams paints a rivetingly plausible picture of a world in which mothers and daughters are sexual rivals, 'virgin' is the ultimate peer insult and the school gates are a fertile hunting ground for male predators.' Guardian There's Only One Wayne Matthews: 'Williams's writing is punchy . . . Wayne's gradual understanding of the realities of the world make this a touching coming-of-age drama.' Guardian
