Explanation of the Book:

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.

Explanation of the Book:

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.”

Explanation of the Book:

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.

Explanation of the Book:

In a sport that's so often won by a two-point spread, the mental game of volleyball is the difference between winning and losing. Your mindset is the difference maker. The Dream - operating in a state of relaxed concentration and confidence in your ability to execute with a precognitive notion of where the ball will land next. The Reality - fumbling between positions a step behind on each play, distracted by sideline pressure and self-doubt. I've interviewed dozens of players and coaches at the highest level of volleyball to create the ultimate guide for players and coaches on mental training for volleyball. I've packed it full of practical confidence building strategies and tips to help players maintain their concentration on the court. This book will show you how to: Create and implement focusing rituals on the court. Approach competition with clear tactical plans. Let go of mistakes immediately. Harness the power of visualization. Avoid 5 mistakes that most coaches make. Plus a bonus section on "How to create a culture of teamwork (5 Uncommon Tips)". Let's put an end to mental errors on the volleyball court and take your game to the next level. EDITORIAL REVIEWS What Coaches are Saying About the Book: AL SCATES, Coached the UCLA mens volleyball team to 19 NCAA titles- "Both the experienced and the novice will improve their performance by reading Brooke Rundle's guide to concentration and confidence building. All those who have been closely associated with the sport of volleyball will recognize that her techniques will help you improve on the court and in life." BROOK COULTER, Associate Head Coach Colorado State University 2012-2015 and professional playing experience 2002-2007 (Slovenia, Austria, Spain, Germany, Holland) - "Rundle gave a presentation on the Headstrong principles and strategies at CSU's team camp in 2015. Our coaches found the Headstrong techniques to declutter the mind, build confidence and prioritize improvement over accomplishment extremely helpful and practical for players and coaches alike. Every coach can benefit from reviewing the section on the 5 mistakes coaches make. The guide offers actionable tips for practice and a game plan to help volleyball players improve their mental game. I highly recommend grabbing a copy of this book and booking her for a speaking engagement at your camp or club." RACHELLE SHERDEN, Head Women's Volleyball Coach Gustavus Adolphus College and 2015 AVCA Central Region Coach of the Year. - "Brooke hits the nail on the head with Headstrong- a concise, relatable, and powerful how-to guide about mental training that is entirely specific to volleyball. I can't wait to share Headstrong with my players and incorporate the principles and strategies from the book into our team's mental training regime. When I think back to my first years coaching volleyball I think about how much I could have benefited from reading and applying the ideologies defined in Chapter 5 about common coaching mistakes. Thanks to Chapter 5, I have a new post-season reflection and evaluation tool to add to my coaching toolbox." JEFF MEEKER, Head Women's Volleyball Coach Cornell College and 6x Conference Coach of the Year.- "This book is not just another tool for coaches, rather is it an entire tool box to inspire growth in our athletes, provide a more positive experience and become better coaches. Brooke's unique and diverse experiences provide keen insight into how we can help our athletes become mentally strong in volleyball and beyond."

Explanation of the Book:

How would you feel, as a guest, about sitting in a suburban living room that is for women only? What if you wanted a baby but as a single woman could not have one outside of a marriage? Could you stay home to mourn a husband for four months and ten days? Headstrong Daughters takes us inside the lives of Muslim women in Australia today. They are working professionals, mothers, and students. At home they are finding ways to stay true to their faith as well as to themselves, navigating the expectations of their families and the traditions they brought with them to their new country. But things are not always what they seem. These candid, moving and sometimes surprising stories reveal a side to Australian life that is little known and often misunderstood. Inspiring, warm and determined, these women are the new face of Islam in Australia. 'A thoughtful, honest, and compelling window into a community so often assumed about, but rarely engaged with. I finished it in a single sitting.' Susan Carland, author of Fighting Hislam 'Jamal's neutral, yet gently perceptive style allows the stories of her women to shine through, illuminating the myriad points of intersection with Islam in ordinary life. An absolutely fascinating and illuminating read.' Annabel Crabb, ABC writer and broadcaster

Explanation of the Book:

"Since the publication of the first edition of Head Strong: How Psychology is Revolutionizing War in 2014, developments in military psychology have been rapid and important. So much so, that this revised edition is necessary to accurately capture the vital role that psychology continues to play in 21st century military success. The ideas contained in the first edition influenced emerging doctrine in the Army's Human Dimension, and informed military leaders around the globe of ways that psychological science and practice may be leveraged to improve combat effectiveness. Many of the predictions made in the first edition have come true, and new and exciting products of military psychology now offer novel ways of impacting military outcomes. This revised edition of Head Strong updates the 13 chapters included in the first edition with breaking news in military psychology, and adds new material to augment those chapters. Two entirely new chapters are included in this edition. The first is on character and discusses how to measure it, how to develop it, and how character plays a vital role in the performance of individual soldiers and their units. The second new chapter is based on a year-long special assignment the author spent working as a Fellow for the Army Chief of Staff's Strategic Studies Group, and captures the rapid developments in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and other disciplines that may help the military optimize soldier and unit performance. Like the other topics in Head Strong, these two new chapters have significant applicability to non-military organizations including schools, corporations, and sports teams. Taken together, the updates and new chapters make Head Strong, Revised Edition essential reading for anyone interested in how the military, and by extension other organizations, may leverage psychology to improve performance."--
