Eat the Beach is a uniquely informative, practical guide to coastal foraging, essential for anyone interested in survival skills or just wanting to get more out of messing about in rock pools.
Fraser Christian runs the UK’s only specialist Coastal Survival School. He is a fully qualified chef who has led courses for the famous River Cottage and now regularly forages for some of the UK’s top Michelin restaurants. In this book he shares his expertise on safety, particularly with regard to weather and tides, techniques for fishing from the shore, finding, identifying and cooking sea plants (including seaweed) and shellfish, and takes the reader step by step through the process of building a clam oven for the ultimate beach feast.
Essential reading for anyone likely to be wild camping by the seashore, or who wants to be equipped for any survival situation (the Coastal Survival School was formed in response to requests from those who found themselves in just such a situation after the 2004 tsunami). The seashore is a rich source of food: this book teaches anyone how to collect it, catch it, prepare it, cook it and enjoy it.
“This book is written so anyone who wants to know about living by the coast, with information and advice any coastal dweller should know (and I didn’t).
Useful for foragers, bushcraft types, survivalist enthusiasts, preppers or just folks that want to expand knowledge.
Simply presented and easy to read and understand.”

The Children’s Fire forges a trail into Britain’s wild and ancient Celtic past. It locates the fragments of a story that still has resonance today; the pulse and surge of an older wisdom that cracks the mendacity of the shopping mall’s vacuous promise. It is a passionate evocation of a generous, inclusive, diverse and spiritually significant world – the world of our longing.
In the winter of 2009 Mac Macartney walked from his birthplace in England across Wales to the island of Anglesey, once the spiritual epicentre of Late Iron Age Britain, navigating by the sun and the stars, with no map, compass, stove or tent, and in the coldest winter for many years. The Children’s Fire records that journey, and seeks to lay bare the aching loss of knowing and understanding sacredness as it applies to everything ordinary that brings joy to the human heart. It asserts the emergence of a new story; the story of a people coming home to a truth made all the more poignant having so painfully broken faith with nature, our deeper humanity, and the paradise we fouled with such casual disrespect. It is a love story and part of a larger narrative that is surfacing all around the world. It seeks to reclaim our future and name it, beautiful.
An account from the frontline of fertility treatment, giving a unique insight into not only the medical and scientific advances involved but the human cost and rewards behind this life-changing technology.
Simon Fishel worked with Robert Edwards during his pioneering early IVF research and was part of the team in the world’s first IVF clinic, with all the trials and tribulations that involved at the time, including a writ for murder!
As the science developed over the decades so did his career, as he sought to do more for patients and taught the new technologies to doctors all over the world. He came up against regulatory and establishment barriers, including fighting a 3-year legal case in the High Court of Justice and a death threat from a doctor if he refused to work with him.
The clinic he founded has grown into the largest IVF group in the UK, developing exciting new procedures, and he has helped establish clinics throughout the world, even being invited to introduce IVF to China.

The advice is sound; the client seems eager; and then… nothing happens! Too often, this is the experience that financial professionals encounter in their daily work. When good recommendations go unimplemented, clients’ well-being is compromised, opportunities are lost, and the professional relationship grows strained.
Advice that Sticks takes aim at the problem of financial non-adherence. Written by a neuropsychologist and financial change expert, this book examines the five main factors that determine whether a client will follow through with financial advice. Individual client psychology plays a role in non-adherence; so, too, do sociocultural and environmental factors, general advice characteristics, and specific challenges pertaining to the emotionally loaded domain of money. Perhaps most surprising, however, is the extent to which advice-givers themselves can foil implementation. A great deal of non-adherence is due to preventable mistakes made by financial professionals and their teams.
The author integrates her extensive clinical and consulting experience with research findings from the fields of positive psychology, behavioural economics, neuroscience, and medicine. What emerges is a thoughtful, funny, but above all practical guide for anyone who makes a living providing financial advice. It will become an indispensable handbook for people working with clients across the wealth spectrum.

This unique book will provide you with a wealth of hints, tips and techniques that I know work. Steve Torjussen has been training and coaching sales people on how to improve their presentations for some 16 years, and has seen dramatic improvements in a very short time when they apply these principles.
