The autumn 2002 publication of Ruby Wax's memoirs was greeted with shock - and delighted acclaim. In the tradition of the best memoirs, such as The Moon's a Balloon and Billy, Ruby Wax revealed, surprised and captured the public more than was ever predicted. How Do You Want Me? was critically acclaimed as brutally honest, vivid and gripping. Ruby Wax's unflinching revelation of a childhood poisoned, and a youth spoiled, culminates in a moving account of her breakdown and recovery. But How Do You Want Me? is also funny, rude and irreverent. It's unusually honest about fame and celebrity and happy to burst ego-balloons and golden myths. A brilliantly fast, furious and surprising read from the inimitable Ruby Wax.

What Do You Want from Me?: Learning to Get Along with In-Laws

Breaking new ground in family psychology, an exploration of the intricacy, friction, and love in the bonds between in-laws. When we marry, we believe the bond is between only two individuals. Few of us realize the power that inlaws will exert over our lives. But the in-laws we acquire when we marry affect our quality of life—our marriage, family, personal comfort, and long-term well-being—for better or worse. What Do You Want From Me? takes a fresh look at the age-old problem of managing conflict with in-laws, offering practical help for dealing with problems that are both immediate (“How do I deal with my in-laws now?”) and strategic (“How can I change the nature of my in-laws’ demands?”). Terri Apter, a psychologist whose books on family dynamics have received international acclaim, draws on nearly two decades of psychological research to pinpoint the sources of tension between in-laws and explore the ways in which we can build healthy relationships with the in-laws in our lives.

How Do You Grab a Naked Lady?

A Memoir

How Do You Grab a Naked Lady? is a sexy, horrific, funny, honest-to-the-bone memoir, with many interesting twists and turns. Sharon was torn between two opposing forces, her mother and dad. Her dad was an idealist, nothing but the best for his daughter. But with her mother, there was a bit of a problem. Mother was irrational, charming, seductive, unpredictable, and a brilliant woman with tendencies towards emotional outbursts, foul language and parading naked in public. Not the role model young Sharon wanted. Only choice left: Dad’s dream of the white picket fence, including squeaky-clean husband, two children, a beautiful home and enough financial security so that his daughter would never need to work. Sharon continually searched for the squeaky clean husband and the white picket fence. But she had two failed marriages. And many, many men. Too many. She came up empty. Sharon began to question her Dad’s dream of the white picket fence. Eventually she discovered the answer in the most unlikely source—her Mother.

How Do I Get There from Here?

Planning for Retirement When the Old Rules No Longer Apply

Challenge the way you think about retirement. Not long ago everyone knew what the word "retirement" meant. The expectation was that you worked until age 65-and then coasted through your golden years courtesy of a comfortable nest egg. Today, when living to 90 is common, when savings are slim, when people work longer and change jobs frequently, clinging to an outdated concept of retirement gets you nowhere. The changes ahead require an incremental approach to planning-and you better begin now. The new After 50 Lifestyle calls for more than money: it demands conscious engagement, diverse interests, and the ability to adapt. How Do I Get There from Here? helps you plot your direction for the coming decades. The first step is to acknowledge where you are-reviewing your assets, both the tangible (e.g. finances, health, relationships) and intangible (e.g. unfulfilled ambitions and new intentions). Then self-reflective questions and exercises walk you through imagining your future, identifying skills you'll need, and preparing for inevitable twists and turns along the way. A retirement of nonstop leisure is not just unreachable, but for most, undesirable. How Do I Get There from Here? guides you toward a dynamic future...designed just for you.

The Last Asylum

A Memoir of Madness in our Times

View: 3245

The Last Asylum is Barbara Taylor's haunting memoir of her journey through the UK mental health system. A RADIO 4 BOOK OF THE WEEK SHORTLISTED FOR THE RBC TAYLOR PRIZE In July 1988, Barbara Taylor, then an acclaimed young historian, was admitted to what had once been England's largest psychiatric institution: Colney Hatch Lunatic Asylum, later known as Friern Hospital. This searingly honest, thought-provoking and beautifully written memoir is the story of the author's madness years, set inside the wider story of the death of the asylum system in the twentieth century. It is a meditation on her own experience of breakdown and healing, but also that of the millions of other people who have suffered, are suffering, will suffer mental illness. 'Personal story, psychoanalytic process, the experience of madness, the feel of being an inpatient in the last days of Friern, the history of the asylum . . . A beautiful memoir, engrossing' Independent 'Moving, brave and intelligent' Susan Hill, The Times 'Dazzling. A great achievement, full of life and hope' Sunday Telegraph Barbara Taylor's previous books include an award-winning study of nineteenth-century socialist feminism, Eve and the New Jerusalem; an intellectual biography of the pioneer feminist Mary Wollstonecraft; and On Kindness, a defence of fellow feeling co-written with the psychoanalyst Adam Phillips. She is a longstanding editor of the leading history journal, History Workshop Journal, and a director of the Raphael Samuel History Centre. She teaches History and English at Queen Mary University of London.

How Do You Know?

The Economics of Ordinary Knowledge

Author: Russell Hardin

Publisher: Princeton University Press

ISBN: 1400830664

Category: Philosophy

Page: 240

View: 2910

How do ordinary people come to know or believe what they do? We need an account of this process to help explain why people act as they do. You might think I am acting irrationally--against my interest or my purpose--until you realize that what you know and what I know differ significantly. My actions, given my knowledge, might make eminently good sense. Of course, this pushes our problem back one stage to assess why someone knows or believes what they do. That is the focus of this book. Russell Hardin supposes that people are not usually going to act knowingly against their interests or other purposes. To try to understand how they have come to their knowledge or beliefs is therefore to be charitable in assessing their rationality. Hardin insists on such a charitable stance in the effort to understand others and their sometimes objectively perverse actions. Hardin presents an essentially economic account of what an individual can come to know and then applies this account to many areas of ordinary life: political participation, religious beliefs, popular knowledge of science, liberalism, culture, extremism, moral beliefs, and institutional knowledge. All of these can be enlightened by the supposition that people are attempting reasonable actions under the severe constraints of acquiring better knowledge when they face demands that far outstretch their possibilities.
