Much of the layperson´s knowledge of the brain is predicated on a lack of understanding about this mysterious organ. To start building a more straightforward, accurate understanding of current breakthroughs in neuroscience, you have to start by shattering popular brain myths. Each of these 24 lectures takes as its focus a single powerful, prevalent brain myth, and uses it as a launch pad from which to explore myriad topics in neuroscience: decision making, memory, dreams, emotions, neuroplasticity, consciousness, mental illness, and much more. Our memory is an accurate, objective record of the past. Our senses reflect the world as it really exists. Our dreams have hidden meanings. We are only using 10% of our total brain power. Modern technology (including social media) is making us less intelligent. Dr. Viskontas doesn´t just settle for obliterating these and other myths. Instead, she replaces them with scientific facts gathered from experiments, research, and case studies. The result is an eye-opening adventure into the latest understanding of why the brain works the way it does. Whatever order you enjoy these lectures in, you´ll be left with insights that will help you better determine the hard scientific truths behind the breaking news (and myths) of tomorrow. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Indre Viskontas.

The 85% Man and Lessons from Lucille is Bob Mack Peak’s well-crafted, uplifting, heart-felt romantic epic—a lighthearted look at differences between men and women. Peak validates the open proposition ´´Everything my mother told me about women is true... and I can prove it.´´ The book’s flowing narrative offers the reader a delightful journey toward discovering life´s truest reward—unconditional love. The 85% Man and Lessons from Lucille finds a parallel and rampart through the life of the author’s parents, a part of The Greatest Generation. Raised during the hardships of the Great Depression, they built a terrific life with beloved children, yet suffered terrible losses toward the end of their lives. Readers who adore the films Terms of Endearment or The Help, will fall in love with Peak’s book. Peak offers guidelines rather than rules to help women, men, and couples to ´´Love Long and Prosper.” The 85% Man is uniquely different from similar books of the relationship, self-help and romantic genres written by a plethora of PhD’s and various authors. Peak draws upon personalized experiences supported by the timeless, sage advice of the author’s mother, Lucille. This book will help readers achieve a useful perspective on what’s genuine in life and love. Displaying his gift for honestly communicating deeply moving experiences, Peak carefully navigates the ups and downs of his relationships. Peak relates his ex-wives to ´´experimental flights,” since his birthday coincides with Chuck Yeager breaking the sound barrier in the X-1 test plane on October 14th. The author’s ´´EXs” were not dissimilar to unstable test planes that often crash. Some of his ´´relationship crashes” left no survivors, while others smashups provided the genesis of a phoenix-like rebirth. Perhaps best of all, the book references a link to the website www.85PercentMan.com featuring a section where visitors can calculate how their ma 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Chadwick.

Divorce is not just a legal process; it´s a devastating emotional experience which all too often brings both parties to the ground. But it doesn´t have to be so traumatic.... Author Charlotte Friedman is a former family law barrister who decided to move from the courtroom to the therapist´s chair in order to transform the way we handle divorce. In her view, the system sets both parties up for a fight, forced as they are to face lawyers, forms and life-defining court negotiations when they are also brimming over with grief and anger. In Breaking Upwards she shares the lessons she has learned from every stage of the process to try to stop divorce causing more damage than it needs to. In clear, reassuring language, she offers calm, practical advice, drawing on revealing case studies to answer questions such as: How long before I get over this divorce? How do I tell the children? Will I ever be able to cope with the new partner in my ex´s life? Whichever way you look at it, divorce is an end - but it is also a new beginning. This audiobook is designed to guide you through, from separation to renewal, and give you the know-how and confidence to create a genuinely positive new story. 1. Language: English.
