As featured on Sunday Brunch and Woman's Hour 'Laura Mucha has found the proof that love actually is all around.' Richard Curtis Poets, philosophers and artists have been trying to explain romantic love for centuries, but it remains one of the most complex and intimidating terrains to navigate. Most people are afraid to be open and honest about their relationships – until now. For Love Factually, Laura Mucha has interviewed hundreds of strangers, from the ages of 8 to 95 in more than 40 countries, asking them to share their most personal stories, feelings and insights about love. These intimate and illuminating conversations raised important questions, such as: - How does your upbringing influence your relationships? - Does love at first sight exist? Should you 'just know'? - What should you look for in a partner? - Is monogamy natural? - Why do people cheat? - How do you know when it's time to walk away? Drawing on psychology, philosophy, anthropology and statistics, Love Factually combines evidence, theory and everyday experience and is the perfect read for anyone who is curious about how we think, feel and behave when it comes to love.

For Love Understood, almost 200 strangers in over 40 countries have come together to share their most personal stories, feelings, and insights about love. These are incredibly frank, intimate, and illuminating conversations, and author Laura Mucha has used these rare and varied insights as a springboard from which to dive into the subject of love, scrutinizing it from all angles--scientific, psychological, emotional, and philosophical. Romantic love is something that poets and artists have been trying to explain and define for centuries, but it's still one of the most complicated and intimidating terrains to navigate--especially when you're directly involved. Psychologists see it as a basic human drive, yet most people are afraid to be open and honest about it, until now. Each chapter begins with a personal story from someone Laura has spoken with, and then goes on to explore the questions and themes that have arisen from the account, intertwining the opinions of other interviewees with the empirical findings and insights of academics. The interviews allow readers to connect with people of all backgrounds, cultures, and ages. Sometimes they'll empathize, sometimes they'll be challenged and at other times they'll find comfort. Love Understood combines academic theory with everyday experience, and is for anyone who is curious about how we, as humans, work when it comes to romantic love.

When Andrew Morton's world-famous biography, Diana: Her True Story, was first published, it caused a media frenzy, and shook the British Establishment to its foundations. Later revealed as having been written with the Princess's full co-operation, this international bestseller is now widely regarded as her official biography. Yet it was not the full story, as in all the sound and fury of its publication, Diana began a journey - a courageous evolution from life as a downtrodden wife and reluctant royal to a self-confident and independent modern woman. Diana: In Pursuit of Love follows this journey, picking up the story where Andrew's first book left off and uses new sources and material as well as a wealth of previously unpublished matter and 16 pages of stunning photos. The book reveals the stories of figures such as her renowned lover James Hewitt, her butler Paul Burrell and Prince Charles's valet, Michael Fawcett, while intriguing comments that Diana made to Morton in taped conversations become extremely important in view of subsequent events. In Pursuit of Love is an honest, unbiased account of one of the most admired, influential figures of our era and the definitive study of Diana.

Greetings-I'm Robert Harris; in writing Lord's Day Cry I've combined doctrinal readiness with the fact of Christ's Bridegroom Return. Suitably, this work makes plain Christ's initial return, which is not an at-once redemption-whether it be the at-once Rapture, or the Second Coming.Actually, both above teachings negate large portions of Scripture. Indeed, if either of these teachings represented the whole truth, then there wouldn't be a need to watch, or a need to prepare. No Tribulation Night? No Midnight Cry? No four watches? No doors? No knocking? No Jewish wedding? No Wedding Feast? No Bridegroom Return with two male witnesses? No first fruits? No Like Manner Return? No partial Summer Harvest? No early and latter rains? No thief like coming in That Night? No place prepared for us? No, we are not bought with a price? In perceiving Christ's first coming, these many Scriptural references all intricately link to a Jewish nighttime wedding. No, these many references are not all just allegoric and meaningless, as many would have us believe.Now Jesus warned, "Take heed to yourselves, lest at anytime your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting (overindulgence), and drunkenness, and the cares of this life, so that day come upon you unawares. . . .Watch you therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things . . . ." (Luke 21:34-36). Here, in praying always, it is the Christian that is to be sober in doctrine, and not to be overtaken with overindulgence and the cares of this life-not the unbeliever (1 Thess. 5:6-8). Sadly, the need to look for the Day of our Redemption, not to mention the need of preparedness for Christ's Bridegroom Return, isn't widely being taught in the Body of Christ. It's time to change that!

The night, or the possibility of Christ returning, begins when the night of the seven year Tribulation begins. To deny this, is to deny the earlier watches of the night (Mark 13:33 37), and the night itself the Day of the Lord. In this vein, the Day of the Lord is pictured as nighttime (1 Thess. 5:2), that is, before it dawns (2 Pet. 1:19). If the chapter division between 1 Thessalonians 4 & 5 is taken out, which doesn=t exist in the original manuscripts, we find that it is not a pre night Rapture that we are to be ready for, but a coming of the Lord as a thief in the night, wherein we are commanded to watch (1 Thess. 5:6 8) and keep our garments (Rev. 16:15). Ironically, the seven year Tribulation and the Day of the Lord both begin with birth pangs (Matt. 24:8; 1 Thess. 5:3) they are one in the same! Now Christians are told to earnestly expect the Day of the Lord in 2 Pet. 3:12 (The word hasting is really to earnestly expect in the Greek.). In suit, since Christians are still here once the Day begins the night (Christ also comes as a thief in the night: in Rev. 16:15), we are told to provoke one another to love and good works, even more so as we see the Day approaching (Heb. 10:24 25). Moreover, it is impossible for the literal salvation to take place before the Day of Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 5:5; Philip. 1:6, 10; 2 Thess. 2:2 3), being before the Day of our Redemption (Eph. 4:30). The pre trib Rapture teaches that Christ=s initial coming will happen before the Day of the Lord; before the night (imminently), but conversely, the Word tells us, "Let no man deceive you by any means, for that Day shall not come (speaking of the Day of Christ) until there is a falling away and the man of sin is revealed. The point is, That Day will begin the beginning of the Tribulation; and again, both the Day of the Lord and the Tribulation begin the night, just as we find in Scripture (1 Thess. 5:1-3). Thus the Trump of God in 1 Thessalonians 4:16 is not an anytime trump before the night, but the Last Trump of the Last Day (John 6:40), being the traditional Second Coming. Even the idea of the Lord returning with a shout, and the Trump of God, and the voice of Michael the Archangel clearly also testify of this, and these represent a battle cry. The irony is, that there is no battle at Christ's initial appearance (1 John 3:2), wherein again, we are COMMANDED to watch (1 Thess. 5:6 8) for His appearing and keep our garments (Rev. 16:15). The Day of the Lord, wherein Christ initially returns, again, has the attributes of nighttime (Luke 17:34; Mark 13:35; 1 Thess. 5:2; 2 Pet. 3:10 14; Rev. 2:1, 16:15), that is, before it dawns (2 Pet. 1:19). Thus Christ is the Bright and Morning Star, the sign of the Son of man at the traditional Second Coming or the first light after the NIGHT the dawning of the That Day (2 Pet. 1:19) when the God man returns at the Second Coming with all of His saints (1 Thess. 3:13, 4:14; Jude 14). Indeed, it is That Day, that is, its prior night segment that we are to look for (Heb. 10:24 25), that will come upon the world and much of the Church as a thief in the night (Luke 21:36; 1 Thess. 5:3). Indeed, it is That Day, as Peter Greek-wise tells us, to earnestly expect (1 Pet. 3:12). Indeed, it is That Day when literal redemption will take place (1 Cor. 5:5). Indeed, it is the Day of Christ (2 Thess. 2 3), being the Day of Jesus Christ (Philip. 1:6, 10)BBbeing the Day of our Redemption (Eph. 4:30)! Speaking of the Day of the Lord, it begins when there is a Great Apostasy, and that the Man of sin is revealed to the Body of Christ (2 Thess. 2:2 3), that is, when the Antichrist confirms (Hebrew: insolently prevails) the Old Covenant and/or the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple in a peace movement (Such will cause great

Victorian philosopher William James had a theory about emotion and behavior: It isn’t that our feelings guide our actions (feel happy and you will laugh). On the contrary, it is our actions that guide our emotions (laugh and you will feel happy). This led James to a remarkable conclusion: “If you want a quality, act as if you already have it.” Roused by James’s astonishing discovery, renowned psychologist and bestselling author Richard Wiseman confirms James’s principle and shows how the self-help genre has for too long put the cart before the horse in trying to help us take control of our lives. Bringing to the table a dazzling array of firsthand experiments, surprising histories, and psychological case studies, Wiseman illustrates in brilliant detail how we can apply this principle in our daily lives: —Smile to become measurably happier —Wash your hands to drive away guilt —Clench your fist to increase your willpower —Eat with your non-dominant hand to lose weight —Nod while speaking to become more persuasive —Act like a newlywed to rekindle your marriage Lively, engaging, and truly mind-changing, The As If Principle is that rare gem that offers real, workable solutions for your day-to-day goals while helping you to instantly take control of your emotions. Whether it’s quitting a bad habit, persevering through a difficult task, or achieving your dream self, The As If Principle can help. Don’t just think about changing your life. Do it.

"Phoebe Fox makes us fall in love with an entire family, a whole cast of characters, and love itself. Painfully, hilariously relatable." - Dr. Duana C. Welch, Author of Love Factually: 10 Proven Steps from I Wish to I Do "Out of Practice, carrying on the great tradition of the Breakup Doctor series, is the kind of book that will have you dialing your girlfriends so you can read sections out loud. Vivid, true, and frequently comedic. Goes down as a favorite finale." - MM Finck, Women Writers, Women's Books "Fresh, funny, and real--I adored it " - Beth Kendrick, author of The Cure for the Common Breakup "As heartwarming as they are humorous--Fox's books offer more than the usual chick lit fare, with a lot of heart and a smart, relatable heroine in Breakup Doctor Brook Ogden." -- Sarah Bird, Author of The Boyfriend School "Phoebe Fox's books are like a box of fine chocolates. Not to be eaten quickly but to be savored and enjoyed." - Fresh Fiction "Fox has given us characters that are lovably fallible, funny, and frazzled, and has proven that when it comes to love and relationships of any kind, even the sanest of us get a little crazy." -- Elisa Lorello, Bestselling Author of Why I Love Singlehood "Therapist Brook Ogden is a genius when it comes to helping people push past the crazy stage and mend their broken hearts, but when Brook suffers her own heartbreak, will she take her own advice? (Answer: no, which is why this book is so funny.)" - Glamour (on The Breakup Doctor) When your relationship is on life support, the Breakup Doctor is on call. There's no shortage of broken hearts in Breakup Doctor Brook Ogden's successful breakup counseling practice--if love is a battlefield, then Brook is the cavalry. Luckily her own love life is in full recovery: after a long, tortuous road, she and Ben Garrett are finally headed down the aisle. But when a local TV personality--and former frenemy--invites Brook onto her show, she's blindsided live on the air when the interview turns into an act of long-delayed revenge meant to publicly humiliate her. Brook's an expert at getting back on your feet when life knocks you down, but as the blows keep piling on--with a betrayal she never saw coming and a family crisis that threatens to pull the foundation out from under her--her confidence starts slinking away. With her clients dropping her faster than a one-night stand, suddenly the Breakup Doctor's career is in critical care. Brimming with both the sublime and ridiculous aspects of love--romantic and otherwise--Out of Practice is a funny and heartwarming tale about loss, grief, and failure that will resonate with all who have loved, lost...and dared to love again.
