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

From the author of The Freemason’s Daughter comes a lush romantic fantasy perfect for fans of Everless! In the world of healers, there is no room for magic. Fee knows this, just as certainly as she knows that her magic must be kept secret. But the crown prince Xavi, Fee’s best friend and only source of comfort, is sick. So sick, that Fee can barely contain the magic lying dormant inside her. She could use it, just a little, to heal him. But magic comes at a deadly cost—and attracts those who would seek to snuff it out forever. A wisp of a spell later, Fee finds herself caught in a whirl of secret motivations and dark pasts, where no one is who—or what—they appear to be. And saving her best friend means delving deeper into the tempting and treacherous world whose call she’s long resisted—uncovering a secret that will change everything. Laini Taylor meets Sara Holland in this lavish fantasy from lauded historical romance author Shelley Sackier!

The Antidote for War and Discontent

How Wisdom, Knowledge, and Human Nature Can Change Us

The Antidote for War and Discontent is a compilation of philosophical essays and poems centered around the fundamental principles of wisdom gained through the words of five great philosophers and the teachers of agape. Robert Price, a former Baptist minister who has been in private practice as a psychotherapist and mental health consultant for over forty years, shares a thesis that examines not only the laws of evolution in order to gain a better understanding of competition for selection, but also how human nature can either sink us or lift us up, depending on the application of either knowledge or love. Price applies the observations of Socrates, Epicurus, Epictetus, Aristotle, and Plato to practical modern day problems and offers insight into how human nature can potentially be transformed in order to make competition, and all laws of nature within us, more progressively positive than negative. Finally, Price studies the Greek philosophy that details three kinds of love as well as their meanings, expressions, and effects. Price presents a compelling case for a new way of thinking about the power of nature and the role evolution plays in securing a cultural evolution that ensures a better and safer human species.
