The Little Book of Kindness

Everyday actions to change your life and the world around you

By Bernadette Russell

  • Hardback
  • £7.99

Kindness - learn how to take action to change the world, one act of kindness at a time

The Little Book of Kindness will teach you how to be kind to yourself, to strangers, to those you love, to the world - every day, at every opportunity.

Prompted by the seeming hopelessness of the world around her, Bernadette Russell undertook a pledge to be kind to a stranger every day for a year. The experience left her wanting to inspire others. The Little Book of Kindness is packed with fun ideas, practical tips and interactive exercises that encourage you to 'be kind' in every area of life - online, to strangers, to the environment, in your community, to yourself - and change the world, one act of kindness at a time.

Biographical Notes

Bernadette Russell started a blog called 366 Days Of Kindness in 2011, detailing her attempt to be kind every day to a stranger, which began as a response to the UK riots of that year. In 2015 she was selected as one of the Southbank Centre's 67 Changemakers for this on-going project, which has resulted in two large scale interactive installations (Dear Stranger and Coat Tales) an international touring theatre show (366 Days Of Kindness), a U.S radio documentary (The Kindness of Strangers) and two children's activity books. She is a columnist for Balance magazine, writing a monthly musing on the theme of kindness.

Demystifying The Female Brain

Sarah McKay
Authors:
Sarah McKay

Understanding how your brain works during the key stages of life is essential to maintaining your health. Dr Sarah McKay is a neuroscientist who knows everything worth knowing about women's brains, and shares it in this cutting-edge, essential book.This is not a book about the differences between male and female brains, nor a book using neuroscience to explain gender-specific behaviours, the 'battle of the sexes' or 'Mars-Venus' stereotypes. This is a book about what happens to the brains of women as they cycle through the phases of life, which are unique to females by virtue of their biology and in particular their hormones.In Demystifying The Female Brain, Dr McKay gives insights into brain development during infancy, childhood and the teenage years (including the onset of puberty) and looks at pregnancy, motherhood, and mental health.The book weaves together findings from the research lab, interviews with neuroscientists and other researchers working in the disciplines of neuroendocrinology, brain development, brain health and ageing, along with stories and case studies.
