'Required reading ... Brock Bastian expertly picks apart the fundamental idea that humans thrive when they approach pleasure and avoid pain, explaining why hardship sometimes yields richer lives that are laden with meaning, deep social connections, and unexpected bliss' Adam Alter, author of Drunk Tank Pink In today's culture, happiness has become the new marker of success, while hardships are viewed as personal weaknesses, or problems to be fixed. We increasingly try to eradicate pain through medication and by insulating ourselves from risk and offence, despite being the safest generation to have ever lived. Yet in his research, renowned social psychologist Brock Bastian has found that suffering and sadness are neither antithetical to happiness nor incidental to it: they are a necessary ingredient for emotional well-being. Drawing on psychology, neuroscience and internationally acclaimed findings from Bastian's own lab, The Other Side of Happiness encourages us to take a more fearless approach to living. The most thrilling moments of our lives are often balanced on a knife edge between pleasure and pain, whether it is finding your true love, holding your new-born for the first time, finishing a marathon or even plunging into an icy sea. This is because pain and the threat of loss quite literally increase our capacity for happiness, as Bastian reveals, making us stronger, more resilient, more connected to other people and more attuned to what truly matters. Pain even makes us more mindful, since in our darkest moments we are especially focused and aware of the world around us. Our addiction to positivity and the pursuit of pleasure is actually making us miserable. Brock Bastian shows that, without some pain, we have no real way to achieve and appreciate the kind of happiness that is true and transcendent.

Although heartbroken, Sadie finds support in her family and close friend Brenda, and a new sense of purpose with the birth of her baby girl, Rosie.

"The Other Side of Medicine" is an amusing and challenging reflection of changes and fashions in general practice. Covering various themes including humanity in medicine, communication, and quality assessment of doctors, Peter Tate offers an abundance of personal anecdotes and patient perspectives. Doctors, particularly general practitioners, their trainers and examiners, and medical students will find this romp through a half century of medical life invigorating and invaluable. "This book is a collection of articles and short stories covering a medical career. Some are iconoclastic, the theme of good communication in medicine runs throughout, other themes are quality in doctors and the assessment of that quality but I hope the main strand of the book is humanity in medicine and my attempts at understanding what that is." - Peter Tate, in the Preface.

The Other Side of Perfect is about living in a world that is less than it ought to be. A world full of fear, self-limiting beliefs and behaviours. It shows us how our negative attitudes keep us locked in a prison of our own making. What we can see in 'The Other Side of Perfect' is that it doesn't have to remain that way. We are the Masters of our life, we can take back control by choosing new thoughts and new ways of being.

Every French woman knows about 'le coup de foudre', the thunderbolt of love at first sight that changes your life forever. But romance is the last thing on the mind of Jacqueline Marechal when the young Parisian woman arrives in Cologne in 1963, during the days leading to Carnival. All she wants is relief from her rigid family environment, and to bide her time while she devises a plan to escape even farther, all the way to America. Until she meets Rainer Heinrich. A self-professed cynic, German student Rainer Heinrich doesn't believe in love. He is content to observe its ravages from afar and relish his own carefree life. Until he meets Jacqueline Marechal. With the fearless innocence of young love, they trust that the intensity of their feelings will overcome national borders and centuries-old prejudices. Yet the forever happiness they promise each other is not meant to be. The opposition of her parents soon forces them apart. But they never forget. When their paths cross again two decades later, they finally confront the youthful fantasies that shaped their lives. From historic Boston suburbs to glamorous European cities, they must face The Other Side of Forever.

Ava Lancet has lost her job, her marriage, and her baby when she discovers she has inherited her grandmother’s dilapidated farmhouse in a tiny village in central Greece. With the kind of emotional impulsiveness that has frustrated her stony-faced husband for years, she decides to move there and recover from life’s sorrows. When an elderly woman in the village mistakes Ava for her grandmother, telling her, with tears trickling down her face, that she is sorry, Ava is both touched and intrigued. What is the woman sorry for, and what secrets did her grandmother keep? Soon Ava is discovering the surprising threads of her grandmother’s life, including her part in the local Resistance during World War Two and a forbidden love affair with a British SOE agent. Spanning three generations and exploring the lives of two very different and yet surprisingly similar women, The Other Side of The Bridge will remind you how a fragile hope can spring from both tragedy and despair. Written by USA Today bestselling author Kate Hewitt, writing as Katharine Swartz.
