8 Mindfulness for Women: Declutter Your Mind, Simplify Your Life, Find Time to Be
Burch, Vidyamala ; Irvin, Claire Piatkus 2016 0349408513 / 9780349408514 Soft Cover New 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
New paperback. RRP 13.99. No matter who we are, or what stage of life we are at, we all long for similar things; to be happy, connected with others, in touch with a sense of calm and peace, vital, alive and joyful. And we long to be able to ride out the tough patches that hit all of us from time to time with some degree of grace and dignity.The good news is that we can fulfil these longings at any time, in any place. They are only a moment away, a breath away. We can learn how to be comfortable with our body, know and understand our mind, and love our heart. It isn't difficult, long-winded or time-consuming. In doing so you'll feel happier in your own skin, less stressed, more confident, more capable and more at ease with yourself and life.This is what Mindfulness for Women is about. It is a practical guide to coming home to yourself in each present moment. To finding the ledge behind the waterfall. To resting in the depths of the ocean rather than being tossed about by surface waves. Mindfulness is a potent antidote to anxiety, stress, depression, exhaustion and irritability. It leads to a greater sense of contentment and can also reduce addictive and self-destructive behavioural patterns. This book will enable you to experience the benefits for yourself. It's not designed as a lengthy course but is solutions-based. It's fast - evidence shows that a little bit of mindfulness goes a long way. It's also bespoke - you can read all of it cover to cover, or simply dip in and out, depending on what you want to focus on. You can listen to whichever meditation track suits you at any given time and you can run tracks together if you want to meditate for longer periods. It's designed to suit your life and priorities now and well into the future. pp. 342. 058140

15 Americans Wanted: Your Place in our Military Structure
Fuqua, Major General Stephen O. Smith and Durrell New York 1940 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Very Good Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
Hardback with dust jacket. Scarce first edition of this interesting historical document. This book essentially represents a recruitment drive in the USA for the Second World War effort. From the front flap of the dust jacket: 'The United States has now launched itself upon an intensive program of military rearmament whose ultimate goal is the achievement of preparedness. Real preparedness demands a tremendous effort on the part of the entire population, military, industrial, and civilian alike. Each one of us has an important part in our country's task. Where do you fit into this picture, and what are you doing now to improve your fitness? The answers to these questions have a practical value for you, as well as your country... Fuqua writes of such pertinent subjects as how the draft operates, the age and physical requirements for peace and wartime service, the role of noncombatants and the percentages of casualties in the various branches of service. This information is invaluable either to those who want to take active steps now, or who desire to know what steps they will be called upon to take when the time comes. The individual who acquaints himself in advance with an organization, who can select his job and improve his qualifications, is in a far better position than the man who is suddenly called upon to assume responsibilities in an unfamiliar setup. This much the book can do. The rest will be up to you.' Tipped into the book is a Selective Service Questionnaire, released Saturday October 12, 1940, which is when the Second World War draft began; an interesting document in itself. The book is in very good, clean condition. No previous owner's names, inscriptions or other marks. The binding is firm. The dust jacket is rubbed at the edges, with a few short tears, small chips and small loss to the bottom edge of the front cover. Front flap not price clipped. pp. ix, 183, plates. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and protects the jacket against wear. 106629
