  • Nudge Improving Decisions About Health Wealth and Happiness
    Nudge Improving Decisions About Health Wealth and Happiness
    Every day we make decisions: about the things that we buy or the meals we eat; about the investments we make or our children's health and education; even the causes that we champion or the planet itself. Unfortunately, we often choose poorly. We are all susceptible to biases that can lead us to make bad decisions that make us poorer, less healthy and less happy. And, as Thaler and Sunstein show, no choice is ever presented to us in a neutral way. By knowing how people think, we can make it easier for them to choose what is best for them, their families and society. Using dozens of eye-opening examples the authors demonstrate how to nudge us in the right directions, without restricting our freedom of choice. "Nudge" offers a unique new way of looking at the world for individuals and governments alike. This is one of the most engaging, provocative and important books you will ever read.

  • Orchid and the Dandelion
    Orchid and the Dandelion
    'The Orchid and the Dandelion is based on groundbreaking research that has the power to change the lives of countless children - and the adults who love them.' - Susan Cain, New York Times bestselling author of Quiet

    Why do some people succeed and others struggle? Why are some people's lives filled with satisfaction and happiness and others with frustration and despair? Why do some people die young, while others live into healthy old age? Is it simply chance and luck, or are there early patterns of development revealing potentially determinative pathways into bounty or calamity?

    In The Orchid and the Dandelion, Dr W. Thomas Boyce - one of the world's foremost researchers in the field of paediatric health - presents findings that children have two very different responses to their environments. While some children are like dandelions and can thrive in almost any environment, there are others who, like orchids, are much more reactive and susceptible to their surroundings. Now we finally have a scientific framework to understand people, know how to address their unique needs and help them find their fullest potential.

    This groundbreaking book draws on extensive research, examples and real stories that will re-frame how we think about orchid and dandelion children and the adults those children have become.

    With 150 concrete clutter-clearing ideas, insights, strategies, and sometimes surprising tips, Gretchen tackles the key challenges of creating outer order by explaining how to 'make choices', 'create order', 'know yourself', 'cultivate useful habits' and, of course, how to 'add beauty'.

  • Parisian Chic Encore: a Style Guide
    Parisian Chic Encore: a Style Guide
    Ines de la Fressange, always one step ahead, shares the secrets for embodying her new style of Parisian chic.

    In the decade since Ines de la Fressange wrote Parisian Chic, divulging style and shopping secrets for Francophiles and fashion lovers everywhere, readers continue to turn to her New York Times best seller - published in seventeen languages - for inspiration. Even so, she decided it's time for a makeover. She updated her shoes and added new wardrobe staples, but she has also changed her attitude about fashion and beauty in an age where less really can be more.

    Some of the core tips and addresses from the original book remain timeless, but Ines now shares her insights on how to be fashionable and eco-conscious, how to curate your closet, and how to update her signature Parisian style.

    Completely revised and vastly augmented, this new book includes style "equations" that make dressing for every occasion as easy as 1 + 2 + 3, and an expanded section on accessories - brand new shoes and handbags, but also hats, scarves, belts, and glasses. Her favorite beauty products have shifted from the cosmetics counter to the kitchen, where she provides recipes for hair and skin care that are 100% organic. She debunks the myth of the so-called French manicure, and instead offers five pointers for becoming chic right down to your fingertips. She even shares insight on the French diet, which does include pastries, but market fresh vegetables, too! And if you're looking for the perfect gift, use her guide that's filled with oh-la-la ideas.

    A fresh take on this classic style, Parisian Chic Encore is essential reading for fashion lovers and Francophiles who want to get into step with the modern Parisienne.
