New Titles

  1. Love matters. And we have the science to prove it.

    Should I put my baby in a nursery?
    Can we prevent anti-social behavior?
    Will my depression be passed on to my child?

    This new edition of Why Love Matters, by Sue Gerhardt, throws some fresh light on these perennially challenging questions by updating its popular and accessible account of how the brain develops in early life.  

  2. New: The Good Life

    Are we born selfish or primed to help others? Does stress make people more antisocial? Can we ever be genuinely altruistic?

    This book explores some of the dilemmas at the heart of being human. Integrating cutting edge studies with in-depth clinical experience, Graham Music synthesizes a wealth of fascinating research into an explanation of altruism, cooperation and generosity and shows how we are primed to turn off the ‘better angels of our nature’ in the face of stress, anxiety and fear.
