      Description
      An eye-opening book that reveals crucial information every woman taking hormonal birth control should know

      This groundbreaking book sheds light on how hormonal birth control affects women—and the world around them—in ways we are just now beginning to understand. By allowing women to control their fertility, the birth control pill has revolutionized women’s lives. Women are going to college, graduating, and entering the workforce in greater numbers than ever before, and there’s good reason to believe that the birth control pill has a lot to do with this. But there’s a lot more to the pill than meets the eye.

      Although women go on the pill for a small handful of targeted effects (pregnancy prevention and clearer skin, yay!), sex hormones can’t work that way. Sex hormones impact the activities of billions of cells in the body at once, many of which are in the brain. There, they play a role in influencing attraction, sexual motivation, stress, hunger, eating patterns, emotion regulation, friendships, aggression, mood, learning, and more. This means that being on the birth control pill makes women a different version of themselves than when they are off of it. And this is a big deal. For instance, women on the pill have a dampened cortisol spike in response to stress. While this might sound great (no stress!), it can have negative implications for learning, memory, and mood. Additionally, because the pill influences who women are attracted to, being on the pill may inadvertently influence who women choose as partners, which can have important implications for their relationships once they go off it. Sometimes these changes are for the better…but other times, they’re for the worse. By changing what women’s brains do, the pill also has the ability to have cascading effects on everything and everyone that a woman encounters. This means that the reach of the pill extends far beyond women’s own bodies, having a major impact on society and the world.

      This paradigm-shattering book provides an even-handed, science-based understanding of who women are, both on and off the pill. It will change the way that women think about their hormones and how they view themselves. It also serves as a rallying cry for women to demand more information from science about how their bodies and brains work and to advocate for better research. This book will help women make more informed decisions about their health, whether they’re on the pill or off of it.

      “I love this book! You will look at taking hormones in an entirely new way after reading This is Your Brain on Birth Control. A must read for men and women.”
      —Louann Brizendine M.D. author of The Female Brain and The Male Brain

      “This is an urgently needed book that every woman should read. Most women are comfortable with the idea that, as some point in their lives, they’ll be taking hormones. But few of us are aware that these same hormones also have an effect on our brains, and not always in a good way.”
      —Lisa Mosconi, PhD, Director of the Weill Cornell Women's Brain Initiative, and author of Brain Food

      "This is Your Brain on Birth Control validates what generations of women have suspected since the introduction of the pill—birth control is doing a whole lot more in our bodies than simply preventing pregnancy. In this brilliant and witty exploration of what we know (and don't know) about birth control, Hill has provided sound evidence that is eye-opening, riveting, and a must read for all women and the people who care about them."
      —Dr. Jolene Brighten, NMD, author of Beyond the Pill

      "Evolutionary psychologist Sarah E. Hill’s This Is Your Brain on Birth Control... explores the Pill’s cascading effects on women’s lives (it alters the body’s response to stress and even whom you’re attracted to)."
      ELLE, Reading List

      "An evolutionary social psychologist at Texas Christian University, Hill looks beyond birth control to examine the effects of the Pill on women’s brains—and on society."
      People, "Books Worth Reading"

      "When Our Bodies, Ourselves debuted in 1970, it was deemed revolutionary for how it covered women’s sexual and reproductive health. Fifty years later, Dr. Sarah E. Hill’s This Is Your Brain on Birth Control feels just as important.”
      BUST

      "So many of us have taken birth control for decades. But do you really know how it affects your body? This fascinating, well-researched read sheds light on all the ways the pill impacts not only women’s own bodies, but society and the world around them, too."
      —HelloGiggles, #2 on "The 13 best new books to read in October as you watch the seasons change"

      "Dr. Hill is a researcher in evolutionary psychology, and This Is Your Brain on Birth Control is an interrogation of the things you likely didn’t hear about the pill during your appointment; namely, that the pill doesn’t just regulate fertility, it influences everything a woman’s hormones influence."

      Description
      A NATIONAL BESTSELLER - A hilarious and heartbreaking memoir-in-remedies by a self-described “professional soul-searcher” that details a journey of self-discovery through over 160 tonics, seminars, regimens, and transformative therapies.

      “In a world full of spiritual seekers, Megan Griswold is an undisputed All-Star. She has spent her life examining her existence in patient, courageous, and microscopic detail, and now she has written about her search with tender and comic honesty. What a delightful journey!”

      —Elizabeth Gilbert, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Big Magic and Eat, Pray, Love

      From an early age, Megan Griswold was set on a path of looking outside herself to learn about herself. At birth her parents found a Christian Science practitioner for her, at age seven she asked Santa for a mantra, and at 12 she started taking workshops on personal growth. Her over-the-top existential curiosity eventually led her to outdoor leadership training in Patagonia where she met her husband. Their marriage was not without challenges, and after he was arrested, Megan’s world was shattered. Rather than let herself shatter, she embarked on a journey of self-discovery with renewed vigor.

      The Book of Help is the story of the 15,000 hours and 160 different remedies, therapies, and modalities that Megan went through, poking and prodding herself to feel better and be better. With a voice that is at once intimate and hilarious, Megan captures the openness and honesty necessary for people to take a new path in life.

      “Griswold walks us through four decades of vulnerability, humiliation and ferocious effort to make meaning out of misfortune.”Goop

      “Megan Griswold’s fantastic memoir is part-medicine for our time, part-balm for our collective wounds, part-instruction manual. Unexpectedly hilarious, self-deprecating, moving, and a story for all women in this time, I couldn’t put it down. I read it aloud to my fiancé, to our daughter, to my friends. It’s the book that makes you jog the elbow of the person sitting next to you and say, ‘You’ve GOT to read this.’ You’ve got to read this. Megan is in touch with where the rest of us may have limped off course.”—Alexandra Fuller, New York Times bestselling author of Leaving Before the Rains Come

      “Megan Griswold’s intimate, chatty, marvelous voice scooped me up on the first page of The Book of Help and she never left my side until the last. This open hearted, soul searching, intensely readable memoir reminds us that we are far from alone on our journey and how ever much we might want them—there are no finish lines, just resting stops where we can heal, learn, gather strength and, most importantly, keep going.”—Isabel Gillies, New York Times bestselling author of Happens Every Day

      The Book of Help is a homecoming of healing. If you think you know what a memoir is, this book subverts everything you know. In her honest, openhearted prose, Griswold examines her life through remedies, from the simple to the wild.”—Nina McConigley, author of Cowboys and East Indians, winner of the PEN Open Book Award

      “An inventive, deeply original plummet into self-exploration that is part emotional repair manual, part memoir and entirely wonderful.”—Amanda Stern, author of Little Panic: Dispatches from an Anxious Life

      “An all-night sleepover ouija board/tarot card/magic eight ball session of delight.”—Pam Houston, author of Deep Creek 

      “By turns funny and aching, The Book of Help is Eat, Pray, Love on speed. Not even the Buddha was as determined as Griswold to find inner peace.”—Patricia Marx, author of Let’s Be Less Stupid

      “Griswold’s debut…provides an exhaustive look at alternative treatments, but wrapped up in that narrative is a personal tale about her own quest to find comfort and healing from the scars of her youth and the tragedy of her divorce….As remedies, the results were decidedly mixed, but vicariously living them through her telling makes for a fascinating book. Soul-searching has never been more comprehensive.”—Kirkus Reviews

      “When Griswold discovers that her husband has an addiction to phone sex and prostitutes, her mother tells her this is all good material. Given this, readers won’t likely blame the author for seeking her own answers….This [book] will appeal to like-minded seekers.”Booklist

      “Griswold’s vulnerability and deeply honest writing will captivate and bolster readers in their own search for improvement.”—Publishers Weekly

      NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER | In this part-manifesto, part-memoir, the revolutionary editor who infused social consciousness into the pages of Teen Vogue explores what it means to come into your own—on your own terms

      Throughout her life, Elaine Welteroth has climbed the ranks of media and fashion, shattering ceilings along the way. In this riveting and timely memoir, the groundbreaking journalist unpacks lessons on race, identity, and success through her own journey, from navigating her way as the unstoppable child of an unlikely interracial marriage in small-town California to finding herself on the frontlines of a modern movement for the next generation of change makers.

      Welteroth moves beyond the headlines and highlight reels to share the profound lessons and struggles of being a barrier-breaker across so many intersections. As a young boss and often the only Black woman in the room, she’s had enough of the world telling her—and all women—they’re not enough. As she learns to rely on herself by looking both inward and upward, we’re ultimately reminded that we’re more than enough.


      Story Locale: Northern California to NYC
      Bio

Prior to Teen Vogue, she was the senior beauty editor at Glamour and the beauty and style editor at Ebony. She’s now a leading expert and advocate for the next generation of change-makers. She has written for the hit show Grown-ish and has appeared on-camera for a range of media outlets including ABC News and Netflix. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.

      Newsweek

      “The former Teen Vogue editor-in-chief opens up in this revealing memoir about growing up in California as the ambitious child of an ‘unlikely interracial marriage,’ only to become a boundary-breaking journalist—as she shared the lessons learned along the way.”
      —O, The Oprah Magazine 

      “Compelling…More Than Enough discusses race, identity, love, friendship, taking up space as a Black woman in a predominantly white workplace, and the meaning of success. As a change maker and young boss, Welteroth reminds young Black girls and women that they are, indeed, more than enough.”
      —Women’s Health

      “Throughout her career, author Elaine Welteroth has often been the only black woman in the room. Learn how she broke down barriers—across several different intersections—to succeed in the media and fashion industries and become one of her generation’s changemakers…. Welteroth’s words may be just what you need to take back your confidence and head down the path toward a new job.”
      —Forbes


      “A must read for women of all ages…The perfect graduation gift.”
      —PopSugar

      —Yahoo! Style

      “The perfect read for any woman just starting out in her career…An anthem for the modern woman.”
      —Brit + Co
       
      “[Elaine Welteroth’s] impressive career trajectory makes for fascinating reading, but what makes the book especially worthwhile is its depiction of an emergent social and political consciousness so strong that it eventually led her to abandon corporate media for the ‘joy of dancing into [an unknown] future.’ An inspiring memoir by a dynamic groundbreaker.”
      Kirkus Reviews

      “With lyrical prose resonant of Jacqueline Woodson’s, Welteroth shows what it truly means to be a leader: to elevate others and challenge systems of oppression, without ever sacrificing a job well done…. Welteroth is proof that ‘living the dream’ is an ever-changing, ever satisfying journey to behold.”
      Booklist (starred review)

      More Than Enough is a beautifully honest look at the exhilaration and heavy weight that comes with breaking barriers. Welteroth didn’t set out to shatter ceilings, but she is a force of nature. I can’t wait to see what she does next.”
      BookPage

      “[An] inspiring debut…Welteroth offers a narrative of empowerment to any reader who has had similar experiences. This affecting tale of claiming one’s space and refuting biases will encourage readers to believe in their own worth.”

      Description
      The international supermodel shares personal stories and lessons learned from a life of “living dangerously—carefully.”

      Maye Musk at seventy-one is a fashionable, charming, jet-setting supermodel with a fascinating and tight-knit circle of family and friends. But things were not always so easy or glamourous—she became a single mom at thirty-one years old, struggling through poverty to provide for her three children; dealt with weight issues as a plus-size model and overcame ageism in the modeling industry; and established a lifelong career as a respected dietician, all the while starting over in eight different cities across three countries and two continents. But she made her way through it all with an indomitable spirit and a no-nonsense attitude to become a global success at what she calls the “prime of her life.”

      As the twenty-and thirty-somethings who follow her obsessively on social media know, Maye is a fount of frank and practical advice on how the choices you make in every decade can pay off in surprising, exciting ways throughout your life. In A Woman Makes a Plan, Maye shares experiences from her life conveying hard-earned wisdom on career (the harder you work, the luckier you get), family (let the people you love go their own way), health (there is no magic pill), and adventure (make room for discovery, but always be ready for anything). You can’t control all that happens in life, but you can have the life you want at any age. All you have to do is make a plan.

      Description
      From the best-selling authors of How to be Parisian, this book delivers the things smart, savvy, fabulous French women think, feel and advise as they hit 40—on life, love and everything else.

      Older, but Better, but Older has the playful wit, self deprecation and worldly advice we have come to expect from these best-selling authors, but now it is focused on the French woman’s mindset as she hurtles towards 40. Caroline de Maigret and Sophie Mas are back to amuse you with how they find they are modifying their favorite bad girl behavior as they advise on beauty, love, seduction as well as lifestyle, family, work and living alone.

      They are still bohemian iconoclasts saying what you don’t expect to hear. They will tell you things aren’t what they used to be—When a thirty-year-old guy arrives at a party and does not even glance at you; when you wake up feeling great and everyone tells you how tired you look; you know you’re an adult when you’re excited just to go home.

      Neuroses vs confidence, resistance vs acceptance, passion vs serenity, de Maigret and Mas, through spirited short stories, capture the different stages of ageing—as nostalgic but modern Parisian women. From the privately absurd to the strangely universal, this book captures moments of everyday life that will make the reader nod, cringe and laugh out loud.

      Description
      ** NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER! ** Ready to take the next step toward living in alignment with the Universe? The #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Universe Has Your Back shows you how.

      In Super Attractor, Gabrielle Bernstein lays out the essential steps for living in alignment with the Universe—more fully than you’ve ever done before. “I’ve always known that there is a nonphysical presence beyond my visible sight,” Gabby writes. “All my life I’ve intuitively tuned in to it and used it as a source for good…. What we call it is irrelevant. Connecting to it is imperative.” Super Attractor is a manifesto for making that connection and marrying your spiritual life with your day-to-day experience. In these pages, you’ll learn to:

      * Move beyond dabbling in your practice, when it’s convenient, to living a spiritual life all the time
      * Take practical steps to create a life filled with purpose, happiness, and freedom
      * Feel a sense of awe each day as you witness miracles unfold
      * Release the past and live without fear of the future
      * Tap into the infinite source of abundance, joy, and well-being that is your birthright
      * Bring more light to your own life and the world around you

      This book is a journey of remembering where your true power lies. You’ll learn how to co-create the life you want. You’ll accept that life can flow, that attracting is fun, and that you don’t have to work so hard to get what you want. Most important, you’ll feel good. And when you feel good, you’ll give off a presence of joy that can elevate everyone around you. After reading this book, you will know how to fulfill your function: to be a force of love in the world.

      Anuschka Rees is a writer, ex-serial-dieter, and former beauty-fanatic. Despite growing up in the era of female empowerment and body positivity, she spent much of her twenties trying to fix yet another imagined “flaw,” researching diets, and comparing herself to attractive people on Instagram. Eventually she decided to put her INTJ mind to good use and see if she could find concrete, applicable advice for women like her, whose insecurities are keeping them from living their best life. Anuschka’s first book The Curated Closet was a bestseller and has been translated into five languages. She lives in Berlin, Germany with her cats, books, and boyfriend.
