There is no simple set of instructions that can guarantee sanity, but if you want to overcome emotional difficulties and become happier, psychotherapist Philippa Perry argues that there are four cornerstones to sanity you can influence to bring about change. By developing your self-observation skills, examining how you relate to others, breaking out of your comfort zone and exploring new ways of defining yourself, Philippa demonstrates that it is possible to become a little less tortured and a little more fulfilled. How to Stay Sane is at once a brilliant explanation of our minds and a profoundly useful guide to facing up to the many challenges life throws our way.

An Economist Best Book of the Year Everyone accepts the importance of physical health; isn’t it just as important to aim for the mental equivalent? Philippa Perry has come to the rescue with How to Stay Sane -- a maintenance manual for the mind. Years of working as a psychotherapist showed Philippa Perry what approaches produced positive change in her clients and how best to maintain good mental health. In How to Stay Sane, she has taken these principles and applied them to self-help. Using ideas from neuroscience and sound psychological theory, she shows us how to better understand ourselves. Her idea is that if we know how our minds form and develop, we are less at the mercy of unknown unconscious processes. In this way, we can learn to be the master of our feelings and not their slave. This is a smart, pithy, readable book that everyone with even a passing interest in their psychological health will find useful. Review “[Perry's] inviting tone (complimented by lighthearted illustrations throughout) and friendly prose make this an accessible addition to the School of Life publications.”—*Publishers Weekly “Using stories from her therapy practice to illustrate her points as well as numerous exercises to conduct alone, with a loved one or within a group, Perry brings new light to a well-visited subject.”—Kirkus Reviews “Perry offers guidance that is both revelatory and achievable.”—Booklist *“In an age of moral and practical confusions, the self-help book is crying out to be redesigned and rehabilitated. The School of Life announces a rebirth with a series that examines the great issues of life, including money, sanity, work, technology, and the desire to alter the world for the better.”—Alain de Botton, The School of Life Series Editor “The School of Life offers radical ways to help us raid the treasure trove of human knowledge.”—The Independent on Sunday (London) About the Author PHILIPPA PERRY is a psychotherapist and writer who has written pieces for The Guardian, The Observer, Time Out, and Healthy Living magazine and has a column in Psychologies Magazine. In 2010, she wrote the graphic novel Couch Fiction, in an attempt to demystify psychotherapy. She lives in London and Sussex with her husband, the artist Grayson Perry, and enjoys gardening, cooking, parties, walking, tweeting, and watching telly.

It’s estimated that 1.5 million Americans, nearly five million people worldwide, have some form of lupus. Current data suggest it’s more common than cystic fibrosis, leukemia, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis combined. At present, the disease is unfamiliar to most and is widely misunderstood. This leads to high levels of misdiagnosis, belated diagnosis, or misdiagnosis that is potentially life-threatening. It could be a leading “sleeper” disease of modern times, with people suffering unacknowledged and untreated. In How to Stay Sane in Pain, author Karen Drennan-McEwan clarifies the key symptoms of the disease, which include chronic pain, and explains how it is currently diagnosed and treated. She offers a look at its history, medications, and their main side effects. From the author’s perspective of someone who suffers personally from lupus, as well as other patients’ testimonies, this guide describes how to achieve resilience and calm despite the disease. Drennan-McEwan offers a step-by-step mind-body approach, an approach rooted in the author’s experience of a massive lupus flare and utilizing her training as a counselor and psychotherapist.

When did you last go back to bed on a Sunday morning with magazines and some tea and cake? Or sink into a bubble bath by candlelight and listen to soothing music? When was your last massage or vacation? If you can’t remember the last time you took care of yourself like this, this book is for you. There was a time when Sophia Stuart needed this book, too. She lived a crazy life with no true relaxation, and soon enough she found herself in front of a surgeon who told her that she had three tumors in her throat and that she needed a five-and-a-half hour surgery—plus almost a month of medical leave to recover. And that’s when she fell apart. But the kindness of strangers helped her through it all. Her anonymous blog gave her an outlet to express everything she was feeling—her fear of the pain, her anxiety about the operation, her frustration about being stuck at home, and anything else that came up. Her writing also focused on all the glorious people, places, and things that make life delicious; and slowly, it helped her realize that she wanted to live differently. On, Sophia wasn’t an executive or a media specialist; she was just another person sharing her thoughts and creativity. And through this she forged deep virtual friendships with people who cheered her on and taught her how to stay sane in a crazy world. This book brings together what she learned. It’s full of practical ideas and sweet inspirations (and even a few shopping lists at the back) to guide you to a more serene place. Because sometimes the world just looks better after a stroll or reading a novel in the park or making a kindness kit for yourself or a long nap on a summer’s afternoon. So grab this book, with its gentle suggestions and peaceful images, and use it as your own little slice of tranquility.
