Dr. Mark Hyman sets the record straight. In Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?, he takes a close look at every food group and explains what we’ve gotten wrong, revealing which foods nurture our health and which pose a threat.

According to studies, 92 percent of New Year’s resolutions fail. The sneakiest obstacle to meeting your goals is not laziness, but perfectionism. If it looks like we’re not going to do something right, we prefer not to do it at all.

Or you can give yourself the gift of done.
Renowned negotiation expert William has discovered that the greatest obstacle to successful agreements and satisfying relationships is not the other side, as difficult as they can be.

If we learn to understand and influence ourselves first, we lay the groundwork for understanding and influencing others. Practical and effective, Getting to Yes with Yourself helps readers reach good agreements with others, develop healthy relationships, make their businesses more productive, and live far more satisfying lives.

Our biology is no longer destiny. Our genes respond to everything we do, according to the revolutionary new science of epigenetics. In other words, our inherited DNA doesn’t rigidly determine our health and disease prospects as the previous generation of geneticists believed. Especially in the last ten years, scientists have confirmed that the vast majority of our genes are actually fluid and dynamic. An endless supply of new studies prove that our health is an expression of how we live our lives–that what we eat and think and how we handle daily stress, plus the toxicity of our immediate environment–creates an internal biochemistry that can actually turn genes on or off. Managing these biochemical effects on our genome is the new key to radiant wellness and healthy longevity.
