Gripping, thought-provoking and deeply rewarding, 12 Rules for Life offers an antidote to the chaos in our lives: eternal truths applied to our modern problems.

Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Maps-Meaning-Architecture-JORDAN-PE...
Why have people from different cultures and eras formulated myths and stories with similar structures? What does this similarity tell us about the mind, morality, and structure of the world itself? From the author of 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos comes a provocative hypothesis that explores the connection between what modern neuropsychology tells us about the brain and what rituals, myths, and religious stories have long narrated. A cutting-edge work that brings together neuropsychology, cognitive science, and Freudian and Jungian approaches to mythology and narrative, Maps of Meaning presents a rich theory that makes the wisdom and meaning of myth accessible to the critical modern mind.

Jordan B. Peterson: 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Jordan-B-Peterson-Rules-Antidote-eb...
Amusing, amazing and instructive, Dr. Peterson reveals to us why skateboarding young men and young ladies must be allowed to sit unbothered, what horrible destiny anticipates the individuals who reprimand too effortlessly, and why you should constantly pet a feline when you meet one in the city. What does the sensory system of the modest lobster need to inform us concerning standing up straight (with our shoulders back) and about achievement throughout everyday life? For what reason did antiquated Egyptians love the ability to give careful consideration as the most elevated of divine beings? What repulsive ways do individuals tread when they end up angry, pompous and vindictive? Dr. Peterson travels extensively, examining discipline, flexibility, experience and duty, refining the world's insight into 12 viable and significant principles forever. 12 Rules for Life smashs the cutting edge commonplaces of science, confidence and human instinct, while changing and honoring the psyche and soul of its perusers.

Man's Search For Meaning: The classic tribute to hope from the Holocaust

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mans-Search-Meaning-classic-Holocau...
9 MILLION COPIES SOLD'A book to read, to cherish, to debate, and one that will ultimately keep the memories of the victims alive' John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped PyjamasA prominent Viennese psychiatrist before the war, Viktor Frankl was uniquely able to observe the way that both he and others in Auschwitz coped (or didn't) with the experience. He noticed that it was the men who comforted others and who gave away their last piece of bread who survived the longest - and who offered proof that everything can be taken away from us except the ability to choose our attitude in any given set of circumstances. The sort of person the concentration camp prisoner became was the result of an inner decision and not of camp influences alone. Frankl came to believe man's deepest desire is to search for meaning and purpose. This outstanding work offers us all a way to transcend suffering and find significance in the art of living.

It's Not Always Depression: A New Theory of Listening to Your Body, Discovering Core Emotions and Reconnecting with Your Authentic Self

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Its-Not-Always-Depression-Reconnect...
Accessible psychotherapy to put us back in touch with our emotions, from the Mental Health Consultant to Mad MenIn this practical and fascinating new account of psychological suffering, pioneering psychotherapist Hilary Jacobs Hendel shows that we should focus not on cognitive behavioural therapy or medication, but on our emotions. We were all taught that our thoughts affect our emotions, but in truth it is largely the other way around: we have to experience our emotions to truly understand our thoughts and our full selves.And our emotions offer a more direct pathway to healing. It's Not Always Depression reveals the most effective techniques for putting us back in touch with the emotions we too often deny - methods which can be used by anyone, any time, anywhere. Drawing on stories from her own practice, Jacobs Hendel sheds light on the core emotions (such as joy, sadness and fear), defences (anything we do to avoid feeling) and inhibitory emotions (anxiety, shame and guilt), and how understanding their interaction can help us return to mental wellbeing - and quickly.If we avoid our emotions, this requires energy that might otherwise help us be our authentic selves and be calm, curious and connected. Reacquaint yourself with your emotions, and recover a vital, more engaged, more authentic self.

The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Antidote-Happiness-People-Positive-...
What if ‘positive thinking’ and relentless optimism aren’t the solution to the happiness dilemma, but part of the problem? Oliver Burkeman turns decades of self-help advice on its head and paradoxically forces us to rethink our attitudes towards failure, uncertainty and death. It’s our constant efforts to avoid negative thinking that cause us to feel anxious, insecure and unhappy. What if happiness can be found embracing the things we spend our lives trying to escape? Wise, practical and funny, The Antidote is a thought-provoking, counter-intuitive and ultimately uplifting read, celebrating the power of negative thinking.‘Burkeman has written some of the most truthful and useful words on happiness to be published in recent years’ Guardian

How do we help them experience stress-free productivity and gain momentum and confidence? How do we help them achieve autonomy, so that they can confidently take on whatever comes their way?

Getting Things Done for Teens is the how-to manual for the next generation - a strategic guidebook for creating the conditions for a fruitful and effective future.
