Fight or Flight Excerpt :

A series of chance encounters leads to a sizzling new romance from the New York Times bestselling author of the On Dublin Street series. The universe is conspiring against Ava Breevort. As if flying back to Phoenix to bury a childhood friend wasn't hell enough, a cloud of volcanic ash traveling from overseas delayed her flight back home to Boston. Her last ditch attempt to salvage the trip was thwarted by an arrogant Scotsman, Caleb Scott, who steals a first class seat out from under her. Then over the course of their journey home, their antagonism somehow lands them in bed for the steamiest layover Ava's ever had. And that's all it was--until Caleb shows up on her doorstep. When pure chance pulls Ava back into Caleb's orbit, he proposes they enjoy their physical connection while he's stranded in Boston. Ava agrees, knowing her heart's in no danger since a) she barely likes Caleb and b) his existence in her life is temporary. Not long thereafter Ava realizes she's made a terrible error because as it turns out Caleb Scott isn't quite so unlikeable after all. When his stay in Boston becomes permanent, Ava must decide whether to fight her feelings for him or give into them. But even if she does decide to risk her heart on Caleb, there is no guarantee her stubborn Scot will want to risk his heart on her....

Fight or Flight Excerpt :

A number of books have been published explaining how we can manage stress. But how can we truly manage our own stress effectively unless we begin to understand what is happening inside us and what the factors are that initiate our personal stress response? If we understand stress more thoroughly including our own levels of stressmeaning when stress is actually motivating and helpful versus when it is debilitating and destructivethen we can more specifically learn to manage our own stress. This book initially explains stress, what happens within us, the relationship between stress and emotional intelligence, the four conditions that cause stress, how the brain works under stress, and the relationship between stress and mindset and automatic thinking. In the second half of the book we discuss managing stress based on what was discussed in the first half of the book. Rather than throwing out general ideas for stress management the book presents physical strategies for managing stress, mental strategies for managing stress, emotional strategies for managing stress, and spiritual strategies for managing stress. Spiritual strategies include looking at our values, beliefs, traditions, and how we evaluate success in addition to any religious views we might hold. Stress is natural. How we manage it does not have to be a mystery.

Heroes of the Frontier Excerpt :

A captivating, often hilarious novel of family, loss, wilderness, and the curse of a violent America, Dave Eggers’s Heroes of the Frontier is a powerful examination of our contemporary life and a rousing story of adventure. Josie and her children’s father have split up, she’s been sued by a former patient and lost her dental practice, and she’s grieving the death of a young man senselessly killed. When her ex asks to take the children to meet his new fiancée’s family, Josie makes a run for it, figuring Alaska is about as far as she can get without a passport. Josie and her kids, Paul and Ana, rent a rattling old RV named the Chateau, and at first their trip feels like a vacation: They see bears and bison, they eat hot dogs cooked on a bonfire, and they spend nights parked along icy cold rivers in dark forests. But as they drive, pushed north by the ubiquitous wildfires, Josie is chased by enemies both real and imagined, past mistakes pursuing her tiny family, even to the very edge of civilization. A tremendous new novel from the bestselling author of The Circle, Heroes of the Frontier is the darkly comic story of a mother and her two young children on a journey through an Alaskan wilderness plagued by wildfires and a uniquely American madness.

Fight or Flight Excerpt :

Although shattered by war, in 1945 Britain and France still controlled the world's two largest colonial empires, with imperial territories stretched over four continents. And they appeared determined to keep them: the roll-call of British and French politicians, soldiers, settlers and writers who promised in word and print at this time to defend their colonial possessions at all costs is a long one. Yet, within twenty years both empires had almost completely disappeared. The collapse was cataclysmic. Peaceable 'transfers of power' were eclipsed by episodes of territorial partition and mass violence whose bitter aftermath still lingers. Hundreds of millions across four continents were caught up in the biggest reconfiguration of the international system ever seen. In the meantime, even the most dogged imperialists, who had once stiffly defended imperial rule, ultimately bent to the wind of change. By the early 1950s Winston Churchill had retreated from his wartime pledge to keep Britain's Empire intact. And General de Gaulle, who quit the French presidency in 1946 complaining that France's new post-war democracy would never hang on to the country's imperial prizes, narrowly escaped assassination a generation later - after negotiating the humiliating French withdrawal from Algeria. Fight or Flight is the first ever comparative account of this dramatic collapse, explaining the end of the British and French colonial empires as an intertwined, even co-dependent process. Decolonization gathered momentum, not as an empire-specific affair, but as a global one, in which the wider march of twentieth-century history played a vital part: industrial concentration and global depression, World War and Cold War, Communism and other anti-colonial ideologies, mass consumerism and the allure of American popular culture. Above all, as Martin Thomas shows, the internationalization of colonial affairs made it impossible to contain colonial problems locally, spelling the end for Europe's t

Fight NOT Flight the Key to Stopping Anxiety Excerpt :

Also included in this edition: Fight NOT Flight: The Key to Preventing Panic AttacksMost people are aware of the fight or flight response. It's the term we use when we refer to our primitive survival instinct. When we feel threatened, our fight or flight response kicks in, and makes us either want to fight the perceived threat, or else take flight from it. When it comes to anxiety, you can forget about fight. Whenever you feel anxious, it's because flight response chemicals are being released into your mind/body system. Let's flip the coin from Flight to FightThe word 'fight' brings with it a world of negative overtones. However, when it's used in the context of overcoming anxiety, it refers to flipping the coin from flight over to fight, and utilising the resulting pro-active (feel-good endorphins) to defeat anxiety. The ability to do so is a life changer, providing the confidence to enter any situation (or face up to painful memories) knowing you have the skills at your disposal to stop any resulting anxiety in its tracks. This short book provides the easy to learn, physical skills you need to achieve this from today onwards. I developed the skills you're about to learn as a means of overcoming my own battles with anxiety, and then went on to teach them to clients who visited my clinic in London from afar afield as the USA and Australia.
