Full of hilarious stories and insightful advice, this is a manifesto for ordinary awesomeness-for the beauty that can be found when we acknowledge that good enough really is good enough and that greatness is ours to define.

  • Bad Advice How to Survive and Thrive in an Age of Bullshit
    Bad Advice How to Survive and Thrive in an Age of Bullshit
    Los Angeles Times #1 Bestseller

    USA Today Bestselling Book

    Over motivational messages Sick AF of inspirational quotes Done with the shiny happy bad advice that gets you nowhere Well, heads up: you're about to get a shitload of Good Advice.

    In Bad Advice, relationship expert Dr. Venus Nicolino-a.k.a. Dr. V-takes a blowtorch to the shrink-wrapped, "feel good" BS that passes for self-help these days.

    When you're heartbroken, what do you hear You can't love anyone until you love yourself. When someone's hurt you Nobody can make you feel bad without your permission. When you're just a little too positive Expectations lead to disappointment.

    Pop culture noise gives Bad Advice the varnish of truthiness and inspiration. But it's not truth; it's not inspiration. It's bullshit. And at its root, all Bad Advice operates off the same lie: Emotions are optional. In Bad Advice, Dr. V delivers a bracing truth serum, in the form of Good Advice-an antidote to the bullshit, from "Just Be Yourself" to "Live Each Day Like It's Your Last," that teaches you to live your life in a way that honors who you are, what you need, and how you feel.

    Smart and irreverent, Dr. V fuses the brains and insight of a nerdy Ph.D. with the heart of a doting Italian Mother and the artful profanity of a Philly trucker. Dr. V's signature combination of humor, hard science, and heart make Bad Advice an iconoclastic course-correction like no other. A fiercely sharp wake-up call that tackles some of self-help's most damaging truisms, Bad Advice is a never shy guide to tapping into your full potential.

  • Be Fearless 5 Principles for a Life of Breakthroughs and Purpose
    Be Fearless 5 Principles for a Life of Breakthroughs and Purpose
    In this nationally bestselling "must-read for leaders who are seeking an inspirational road map...in today's challenging climate" (Forbes), philanthropist, investor, and technology pioneer Jean Case brings to life the five Be Fearless principles common to the people and organizations that change the world.

    This book is a call to action for those seeking to live extraordinary lives and bring about transformational change.

    When National Geographic Chairman Jean Case set out to investigate the core qualities of great change makers, past and present, from inventors to revolutionaries, she found five surprising traits all had in common. They weren't wealth, privilege, or even genius. It was that all of these exceptional men and women chose to make a "big bet," take bold risks, learn from their failures, reach beyond their bubbles, and let urgency conquer fear.

    Throughout Be Fearless, Jean vividly illustrates these principles through storytelling-from her own transformational life experiences, to Jane Goodall's remarkable breakthroughs in understanding and protecting chimpanzees, to celebrity chef Jose Andres's decision to be a "first responder" and take his kitchen to the sites of devastating hurricanes to feed the hungry, to Madam C.J. Walker's vision to build a hair care empire that would employ thousands across the country, and more. She shares new insights to stories you might think you know-like Airbnb's tale of starting from scratch to transform the hospitality industry, to John F. Kennedy's history-making moonshot-gems from changemakers you've never heard of, and, in a new afterword, stories of people inspired to take action after reading the book.

    Be Fearless "is a welcome kick in the pants for anyone who feels stuck in their career" (Business Insider). Weaving together storytelling, practical tips, and inspiration, the book teaches you how to put the five fearless principles to work so that you too can spark the sorts of remarkable breakthroughs that change the world.

  • Becoming Beauvoir A Life
    Becoming Beauvoir A Life
    A symbol of liberated womanhood, Simone de Beauvoir's unconventional relationships inspired and scandalised her generation. A philosopher, writer, and feminist icon, she won prestigious literary prizes and transformed the way we think about gender with The Second Sex. But despite her successes, she wondered if she had sold herself short.

    Her liaison with Jean-Paul Sartre has been billed as one of the most legendary love affairs of the twentieth century. But for Beauvoir it came at a cost: for decades she was dismissed as an unoriginal thinker who 'applied' Sartre's ideas. In recent years new material has come to light revealing the ingenuity of Beauvoir's own philosophy and the importance of other lovers in her life.

    This ground-breaking biography draws on never-before-published diaries and letters to tell the fascinating story of how Simone de Beauvoir became herself.

  • Beginners Guide to Being Mental
    Beginners Guide to Being Mental
    'Am I normal?'
    'What's an anxiety disorder?'
    'Does therapy work?'
    'How would I know if someone had an eating disorder?'

    These are just a few of the questions Natasha Devon is asked as she travels the UK campaigning for better mental health awareness and provision. Here, Natasha calls upon experts in the fields of psychology, neuroscience and anthropology to debunk and demystify the full spectrum of mental health. From A (Anxiety) to Z (Zero F*cks - the art of high self-esteem) via everything from body image and gender to differentiating 'sadness' from 'depression'.

    Statistically, one in three of us will experience symptoms of a mental illness during our lifetimes. Yet all of us have a brain, and so we ALL have mental health - regardless of age, sexuality, race or background. The past few years have seen an explosion in awareness, yet it seems there is still widespread confusion. A Beginner's Guide to Being Mental is for anyone who wants to have this essential conversation, written as only Natasha, with her combination of expertise, personal experience and humour, knows how.

  • Beginner's Guide to the End
    Beginner's Guide to the End
    "I wish I'd had this book when I needed it. Death and dying are not subjects that many people are comfortable talking about, but it's hugely important to be as prepared as you can be - emotionally, physically, practically, financially, and spiritually. This book may be the most important guide you could have." - Elizabeth Gilbert, author of EAT PRAY LOVE


    The end of a life can often feel like a traumatic, chaotic and inhuman experience. In this reassuring and inspiring book, palliative care physician Dr BJ Miller and writer Shoshana Berger provide a vision for rethinking and navigating this universal process.

    There are plenty of self-help books for mourners, but nothing in the way of a modern, approachable and above all useful field guide for the living. And all of us - young, old, sick and well - could use the help. After all, pregnant couples have ample resources available to them as they prepare to bring a new life into the world: Lamaze courses, elaborate birth plans, tons of manuals. Why don't we have a WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING TO DIE book?

    An accessible, beautifully designed and illustrated companion, A BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO THE END offers a clear-eyed and compassionate survey of the most pressing issues that come up when one is dying, and will bring optimism and practical guidance to empower readers with the knowledge, resources and tools they'll need to die better, maybe even with triumph.
