Verne Varona (Author)
Based on a solid foundation of the healing properties of good nutrition, this book empowers readers with the information they need to make the best choices and to gain control over their total health and well-being - physical, emotional, and spiritual. While addressing the specific needs of those with a diagnosis of cancer, Varona explores the key factors that science and experience have shown to influence the path of prevention and recovery.
Grounded in documented research from leading medical institutions - along with studies of the world's healthiest populations - nutrition educator Verne Varona has developed a breakthrough nutritional and lifestyle programme for immunity building and cancer prevention and recovery. This book provides detailed diet and lifestyle modifications that will reinforce the body's immunity and reduce cell-damage to an absolute minimum.
While the bulk of this book is devoted to physical nutrition, eating the right foods is not the whole picture. No matter what course of treatment a patient may choose, clinical research and anecdotal testimony have shown that those who have embraced a range of self-healing choices not only see a positive impact on their physical and psychological well-being but inevitably enhance their chances of survival. The most influential of these choices are: life purpose; positive attitude; managing stress; sense of humor; love and social support; emotional expression; and faith. Along with good nutrition, a healthy lifestyle, and physical exercise, these choices contribute to a more comprehensive
and complete healing.

In her bestselling mini-ebook What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast, Laura Vanderkam showed us how to take advantage of our often ignored morning hours to achieve our dreams.

IF YOU'RE TIRED OF BEING AT WAR WITH YOUR BODY, THEN THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU.
We've been convinced that happiness is something that only comes once we hit that goal weight, get those washboard abs, shrink ourselves down and change every part of ourselves. We believe that our bodies are the problem, but this is not true. It’s how we’ve been taught to see our bodies that’s the problem... It's time for us all to stop believing the lies we've been fed about what it means to be beautiful, and take our power back.
Megan's body image issues began when she was five years old. She spent her childhood chasing thinness, and at fourteen found herself spiralling into anorexia. After recovery she spent years dieting, binging, losing and gaining weight. But then she found body positivity, quit dieting, and finally escaped the cult of thin. Now she's determined to let as many people as possible know the truth: that we are all good enough as we are.
With her inimitable flair, whip-smart wit and kickass attitude, Megan argues for a new way of seeing ourselves, and a world where every body is celebrated. Where there is no such thing as a ‘bikini body diet’ and 97% of women don’t hate the way they look.
A powerful call to arms as much as it is inspirational and practical, this book is the life-changing answer you’ve been looking for.
Scott Adams, the world-famous comic strip artist (Dilbert) and trained hypnotist,
recognized Donald Trump's powers of persuasion before nearly anyone else. Now
he's expanding his controversial blog posts into a fascinating book about master
persuaders like Trump, and how anyone can copy their techniques--for good or for ill.
Soon after Donald Trump declared his presidential candidacy, when most
experts dismissed him as a joke who'd be gone before Iowa Scott Adams called
Trump a master communicator in the same league as Abraham Lincoln and Steve
Jobs. As a student of the art and science of persuasion, Adams recognized
Trump's deep toolbox for persuasion. On his popular blog, Adams predicted that
Trump could go all the way. The public response was ridicule, scorn, and even
calls to boycott Dilbert. But ultimately, Adams was right and his critics were wrong.
So what did Adams see that the pundits missed? The short answer is the power of
irrationality. We humans like to think of ourselves as rational beings, but we
overwhelmingly make decisions on gut instinct, then invent reasons to justify
those decisions after the fact. Emotional persuasion works despite a leader's flaws,
missteps, and tacky behavior. It can overcome all appeals to logic and even
In his new book, Adams goes beyond politics to look at persuasion tools that can
work in any setting. He explains the secret tricks of the world's greatest
persuaders, giving readers what he calls "access to the admin passwords for
human beings." You'll learn, for instance, how to...
Create linguistic kills shots ("Low-energy Jeb"!) with unexpected vocabulary and
sticky imagery to refuel confirmation bias
Use the High Ground Maneuver--a successful tactic of Steve Jobs during
publicity flare-ups--to win almost any debate
Spot the tells for cognitive dissonance so you know when others have
Written in the clever but relatable voice that his fans love, this is a must
read if you care about persuading others in any field--or if you just want to
resist the tactics of emotional persuasion when used on you.

This is the story of three people: Julia Blackburn, her father Thomas and her mother Rosalie. Thomas was a poet and an alcoholic, who for many years was addicted to barbiturates; Rosalie, a painter, was sociable and flirtatious. After her parents were divorced, Julia's mother took in lodgers, always men, on the understanding that each should become her lover. When one of the lodgers started an affair with Julia, Rosalie was devastated; when he later committed suicide the relationship between mother and daughter was shattered irrevocably.
Or so it seemed until the spring of 1999, when Rosalie, diagnosed with leukaemia, came to live with Julia for the last month of her life.
