READING: It's September 1975, and fifteen-year-old Matt Jerue is in for the fight of his life: surviving high school. He has two youthful desires: to play in a band with his three best friends and to see Taryn McIntyre, a girl he's had a crush on since eighth grade. But despair, anger, and frustration control him during his sophomore year as he struggles to get to know Taryn despite his feelings of inadequacy and her own insecurities and misperceptions. When a rumor spreads through school that he plans to get even with Taryn after he's suspended, it results in his own beating, expulsion, and, ultimately, a temporary restraining order. But when Taryn approaches him for help, Matt knows it's his chance to prove he's not the person she thinks he is. So he agrees to help her, under one condition... "Headstrong" is a bittersweet love story where love and hate are emotions wrapped so tightly together that their incompatible proximity creates impassioned words, heated arguments, and intense looks. But regardless of whether love fails or prevails, the passion, the heat, and the intensity remain... in perhaps the best experience of all.

READING: From the creator of Bulletproof Coffee and author of the bestselling The Bulletproof Diet comes a revolutionary plan to upgrade your brainpower—in two weeks or less. For the last decade, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Dave Asprey has worked with world-renowned doctors and scientists to uncover the latest, most innovative methods for making humans perform better—a process known as "biohacking." In his first book, The Bulletproof Diet, he shared his biohacking tips for taking control of your own biology. Now, in Head Strong, Asprey shows readers how to biohack their way to a sharper, smarter, faster, more resilient brain. Imagine feeling like your mind is operating at its clearest and sharpest, and being able—possibly for the first time in your life—to do more in less time? What it suddenly became easier to do the very hardest things you do? Or if you could feel 100% confident about your intellect, and never again fear being the person in the room who just isn’t smart enough, or can’t remember something important? How would you treat people if the mood swings, short temper, and food cravings that disrupt your day could simply disappear? In Head Strong, Asprey shows us that all of this is possible—and more. Using his simple lifestyle modifications (or "hacks") to take advantage of how the structure of your brain works, readers will learn how to take their mental performance to the next level. Combining the latest findings in neuroscience and neurobiology with a hacker-inspired "get it done now" perspective, Asprey offers a program structured around key areas of brain performance that will help you: Power the brain with exactly what it needs to perform at its best all day long Eliminate the sources of "kryptonite," both nutritional and environmental, that make the brain slower. Supercharge the cellular powerhouses of our brains, the mitochondria, to eliminate cravings and turn up mental focus. Reverse inflammation to perform better right now, then stay sharp and energized well into your golden years. Promote neuron growth to enhance processing speed and reinforce new learning—hotwiring your brain for success. Asprey’s easy to follow, two-week program offers a detailed plan to supercharge brain performance, including: which foods to eat and which ones to avoid, how to incorporate the right kinds of physical activity into your day, a detox protocol for your home and body; meditation and breathing for performance, recommended brain-boosting supplements; and how to adjust the lighting in your home and work space to give your brain the quality light it thrives on. A better brain—and a happier, easier, more productive life—is within reach. You just need to get Head Strong.

READING: Psychology is the science that will determine who wins and who loses the wars of the 21st century, just as physics ultimately led the United States to victory in World War II. Changes in the world's political landscape coupled with radical advances in the technology of war will greatly alter how militaries are formed, trained, and led. Leadership under fire - and the traits and skills it requires - is also changing. Grant, Lee, Pershing, Patton - these generals would not succeed in 21st century conflicts. In Head Strong: How Psychology Is Revolutionizing War, Michael D. Matthews explores the many ways that psychology will make the difference for wars yet to come, from revolutionary advances in soldier selection and training to new ways of preparing soldiers to remain resilient in the face of horror and to engineering the super-soldier of the future. These advancements will ripple out to impact on the lives of all of us, not just soldiers. Amputees will have "intelligent" life-like prosthetics that simulate the feel and function of a real limb. Those exposed to trauma will have new and more effective remedies to prevent or treat post-traumatic stress disorder. And a revolution in training - based heavily in the military's increasing reliance on immersive simulations - will radically alter how police, fire, and first-responder personnel are trained in the future. At its heart, war is the most human of endeavors. Psychology, as the science of human behavior, will prove essential to success in future war. Authored by a West Point military psychologist, this book is one of the first to expose us to the smarter wars, and the world around them, to come.

READING: Fifty-two inspiring and insightful profiles of history’s brightest female scientists. In 2013, the New York Times published an obituary for Yvonne Brill. It began: “She made a mean beef stroganoff, followed her husband from job to job, and took eight years off from work to raise three children.” It wasn’t until the second paragraph that readers discovered why the Times had devoted several hundred words to her life: Brill was a brilliant rocket scientist who invented a propulsion system to keep communications satellites in orbit, and had recently been awarded the National Medal of Technology and Innovation. Among the questions the obituary—and consequent outcry—prompted were, Who are the role models for today’s female scientists, and where can we find the stories that cast them in their true light? Headstrong delivers a powerful, global, and engaging response. Covering Nobel Prize winners and major innovators, as well as lesser-known but hugely significant scientists who influence our every day, Rachel Swaby’s vibrant profiles span centuries of courageous thinkers and illustrate how each one’s ideas developed, from their first moment of scientific engagement through the research and discovery for which they’re best known. This fascinating tour reveals these 52 women at their best—while encouraging and inspiring a new generation of girls to put on their lab coats. From the Trade Paperback edition.

READING: This breakthrough book challenges traditional views about business, leadership, and performance by linking the benefits of nutrition and exercise with the power of neuroscience to optimize executive performance. In today’s dynamic business climate, despite technological advances, executives spend more time at work than ever before. Faster-moving markets, shorter deadlines, constant change, and tighter budgets all mean greater pressure and increased energy demands. Headstrong Performance explores the research behind the deterioration of executive performance as a result of stress mismanagement and reveals the neuroscience behind stress and poor health behaviors commonly witnessed in the workplace. These misguided coping strategies ultimately result in employee disengagement, decreased business performance, and subsequently, a suffering bottom line. Armed with the latest science, this book provides numerous highly effective health strategies that will enable today’s professionals to work toward improved, sustainable business performance—and remain at the top of their game for years to come. Colin Sampson, senior vice president of SAP, says: “Headstrong Performance is a life-changing message about healthy work-life balance, good nutrition, rest, and regular exercise, all leading to an improvement in performance, individually and as a team. A great way to bring about real, positive, and productive change.”

READING: Drawing on 40 years of working in challenging schools, and a decade of leading some of the toughest schools in London, this book shows Heads, aspiring leaders, teachers and governors how to create vibrant centres of learning in our most broken communities. Headstrong will resonate with ambitious leaders beyond education. It consists of 11 chapters, each exploring one aspect of the challenge of leadership. "I've seen Sally Coates up close, shadowed her on the job for weeks on end, and she's something to behold. She's a phenomenon, sweeping through school corridors like a tornado, making improvements wherever she goes. It's not just her wealth of knowledge, but her sheer force of personality. If she'd gone into politics, I have no doubt she would have risen to the top. But she didn't. Thankfully, she became a headteacher and tens of thousands of schoolchildren have had their lives transformed as a result. If we could only clone her, we'd have the best public education system in the world." --Toby Young, founder of the West London Free School "Dame Sally Coates book is a must read for all those involved in improving standards in inner city schools - exceptionally readable." --Richard Garner, The Independent "The narrative of Headstrong is not just one of school improvement by an inspiring headteacher. Importantly it is a tale of the joy and fulfilment which the role brings." --Roy Blatchford, director of the National Education Trust About the Author Dame Sally Coates is currently named in Britain's 500 most influential people by Debrett's. She became principal of Burlington Danes Academy in London in 2008, when just 35% of students gained the national benchmark of five A*-C grades at GCSE. This figure now stands at nearly 80%, and the school has won national awards in recognition of this transformation. In 2013 she was made Dame Commander of the British Empire in the Queen's New Year's Honours List. In September 2014 Dame Sally joined United Learning, the largest chain of academies in England, as director of its southern academies. She regularly speaks at educational conferences in the UK and overseas and appears frequently on national news media discussing educational policy.

READING: Sherlock Holmes, de eigenzinnige detective uit het werk van Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, staat bekend om zijn razendsnelle denkvermogen. Voordat hij zelfs maar weet wat het probleem in kwestie is, heeft hij al allerlei informatie ingewonnen en weet de juiste conclusie te trekken. Hoe doet s werelds bekendste detective dat? En, belangrijker nog, kunnen wij dat ook leren? Psychologe Maria Konnikova combineert zijn verhalen met hedendaags psychologisch onderzoek van klassieke modellen tot recente ontwikkelingen in de neurowetenschappen om inzichtelijk te maken welke stappen Sherlock Holmes zet in zijn denken, van observatie tot deductie. Geen ander personage is zo geschikt om als basis te dienen voor onderzoek naar het menselijk denken. Mastermind leert je misschien niet een meesterdetective te worden, maar wel om aandachtiger naar je omgeving te kijken en zorgvuldiger om te gaan met gedachten en beslissingen.
