<b>A <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER </b><br /> <br /><b>A paradigm-shifting book from an acclaimed Harvard Medical School scientist and one of <i>Time</i>鈥檚 most influential people.</b><br /><br />It鈥檚 a seemingly undeniable truth that aging is inevitable. But what if everything we鈥檝e been taught to believe about aging is wrong? What if we could choose our lifespan?<br /> <br />In this groundbreaking book, Dr. David Sinclair, leading world authority on genetics and longevity, reveals a bold new theory for why we age. As he writes: 鈥淎ging is a disease, and that disease is treatable.鈥?lt;br /> <br />This eye-opening and provocative work takes us to the frontlines of research that is pushing the boundaries on our perceived scientific limitations, revealing incredible breakthroughs鈥攎any from Dr. David Sinclair鈥檚 own lab at Harvard鈥攖hat demonstrate how we can slow down, or even reverse, aging. The key is activating newly discovered vitality genes, the descendants of an ancient genetic survival circuit that is both the cause of aging and the key to reversing it. Recent experiments in genetic reprogramming suggest that in the near future we may not just be able to <i>feel </i>younger, but actually <i>become </i>younger.<br /> <br />Through a page-turning narrative, Dr. Sinclair invites you into the process of scientific discovery and reveals the emerging technologies and simple lifestyle changes鈥攕uch as intermittent fasting, cold exposure, exercising with the right intensity, and eating less meat鈥攖hat have been shown to help us live younger and healthier for longer. At once a roadmap for taking charge of our own health destiny and a bold new vision for the future of humankind, <i>Lifespan </i>will forever change the way we think about why we age and what we can do about it.

<b>The face of autism is changing. And more often than we realize, that face is wearing lipstick.</b><br /><br /><i><b>Autism in Heels</b></i>, an intimate memoir, reveals the woman inside one of autism鈥檚 most prominent figures, Jennifer O'Toole. At the age of thirty-five, Jennifer was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, and for the first time in her life, things made sense. Now, Jennifer exposes the constant struggle between carefully crafted persona and authentic existence, editing the autism script with wit, candor, passion, and power. Her journey is one of reverse-self-discovery not only as an Aspie but--more importantly--as a thoroughly modern woman.<br /><br />Beyond being a memoir, <i><b>Autism in Heels</b></i> is a love letter to all women. It鈥檚 a conversation starter. A game changer. And a firsthand account of what it is to walk in Jennifer's shoes (especially those iconic red stilettos).<br /><br />Whether it's bad perms or body image, sexuality or self-esteem, Jennifer's is as much a human journey as one on the spectrum. Because autism "looks a bit different in pink," most girls and women who fit the profile are not identified, facing years of avoidable anxiety, eating disorders, volatile relationships, self-harm, and stunted independence. Jennifer has been there, too. <i><b>Autism in Heels</b></i> takes that message to the mainstream.<br /><br />From her own struggles and self-discovery, she has built an empire of empowerment, inspiring women the world over to realize they aren't mistakes. They are misunderstood miracles.

***A <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTELLER***<br /> <br />An essential exploration of why and how women鈥檚 sexuality works鈥攂ased on groundbreaking research and brain science鈥攖hat will radically transform your sex life into one filled with confidence and joy.<br /><br />Researchers have spent the last decade trying to develop a 鈥減ink pill鈥?for women to function like Viagra does for men. So where is it? Well, for reasons this book makes crystal clear, that pill will never be the answer鈥攂ut as a result of the research that鈥檚 gone into it, scientists in the last few years have learned more about how women鈥檚 sexuality works than we ever thought possible, and <i>Come as You Are</i> explains it all.<br /> <br />The first lesson in this essential, transformative book by Dr. Emily Nagoski is that every woman has her own unique sexuality, like a fingerprint, and that women vary more than men in our anatomy, our sexual response mechanisms, and the way our bodies respond to the sexual world. So we never need to judge ourselves based on others鈥?experiences. Because women vary, and that鈥檚 normal.<br /> <br />Second lesson: sex happens in a context. And all the complications of everyday life influence the context surrounding a woman鈥檚 arousal, desire, and orgasm.<br /> <br />Cutting-edge research across multiple disciplines tells us that the most important factor for women in creating and sustaining a fulfilling sex life, is not what you do in bed or how you do it, but <i>how you feel about it</i>. Which means that stress, mood, trust, and body image are not peripheral factors in a woman鈥檚 sexual wellbeing; they are central to it. Once you understand these factors, and how to influence them, you can create for yourself better sex and more profound pleasure than you ever thought possible.<br /> <br />And Emily Nagoski can prove it.
