Product Description:

Are you sick & tired of living your life on mute?


Kelly Cochran gets it. From fighting sexual harassment in the workplace to muffling her opinions in romantic relationships, Kelly spent years subconsciously ignoring her own inner counsel, with hilariously detrimental results. In this candidly humorous memoir, Kelly unveils an unfiltered look at her precarious dating life, battles with climbing the corporate ladder, and friendships won and lost.
LOUD: HOW TO SILENCE YOUR CRITICS & TURN UP THE VOLUME ON YOUR LIFE is an intimate look at the moments in life that ultimately define adulthood, womanhood, and self-confidence.
You need to read this book if:
  • You are trapped in a dead-end job or toxic relationship.
  • You are struggling with depression because you have molded your life to look exactly how society expects, even though your soul is craving something completely different.
  • Navigating the male-dominated bureaucracy of a corporate career has proven a difficult because of your female anatomy.You are sick and tired of being told to play nice, look pretty, be quiet and behave.
EARLY READER FEEDBACK FOR LOUD:
"If you loved Girl Wash Your Face, you will love this book!"
"This book was a lightbulb for my personal life.""If you are looking to get unstuck, leave a toxic relationship or crappy job, this book is a MUST READ."
"Bottom line: incredible. I have so many positive things I want to say, but I'll get carpal tunnel typing them all out."
"I read the first few chapters on a plane, and I flew through them! I took a screen shot of multiple things that resonated with me, especially when Kelly writes, 'Your fears are holding your loved ones back from realizing their full potential.' So powerful!"
"I definitely laughed out loud! Kelly's writing style was perfect for the tone and topic of the book, and I love the weaving in of little personal anecdotes and public figures."

Childhood obesity has reached epidemic proportions: More than 18 million American children are considered obese and are at risk for health problems. In fact, today's generation of kids may be the first to experience shorter life spans than their parents.

Leading pediatrician Dr. Joanna Dolgoff's Red Light, Green Light, Eat Right teaches kids how to make healthy choices based on the principles of the traffic light: green light foods are nutritious, yellow light foods are eaten in moderation, and red light foods are occasional treats.

The program, which has a proven 96 percent success rate, can be tailored to suit any child's age, gender, and weight goals. Snacks and meals are designed to ensure that kids get the nutrients they need to not only lose or maintain weight, but to grow strong, healthy bodies. Complete with sample menus, recipes, and an index of more than 1,000 color-coded foods, Red Light, Green Light, Eat Right provides a practical solution for one of the biggest health crises facing America's children.

Product Description:
1995 Margaret Mead Award winner! This personal account by a biocultural anthropologist illuminates important, not-soon-forgotten messages involving the more sobering aspects of conducting fieldwork among malnourished children in West Africa. With nutritional anthropology at its core, Dancing Skeletons presents informal, engaging and oftentimes dramatic stories from the field that relate the author’s experiences conducting research on infant feeding and health in Mali. Through fascinating vignettes and honest, vivid descriptions, Dettwyler explores such diverse topics as ethnocentrism, culture shock, population control, breastfeeding, child care, the meaning of disability and child death in different cultures, female circumcision, women’s roles in patrilineal societies, the dangers of fieldwork, and the realities involved in researching emotionally draining topics. Readers will alternately laugh and cry as they meet the author’s friends and informants, follow her through a series of encounters with both peri-urban and rural Bambara culture, and struggle with her as she attempts to reconcile her very different roles as objective ethnographer, subjective friend, and mother in the field.

Product Description:

It has become common knowledge that childhood obesity rates are increasing every year. But the rates continue to rise. And between busy work schedules and the inconvenient truth that kids simply refuse to eat vegetables and other healthy foods, how can average parents ensure their kids are getting the proper nutrition and avoiding bad eating habits?

As a mother of three, Jessica Seinfeld can speak for all parents who struggle to feed their kids right and deal nightly with dinnertime fiascos. As she wages a personal war against sugars, packaged foods, and other nutritional saboteurs, she offers appetizing alternatives for parents who find themselves succumbing to the fastest and easiest (and least healthy) choices available to them. Her modus operandi? Her book is filled with traditional recipes that kids love, except they're stealthily packed with veggies hidden in them so kids don't even know! With the help of a nutritionist and a professional chef, Seinfeld has developed a month's worth of meals for kids of all ages that includes, for example, pureed cauliflower in mac and cheese, and kale in spaghetti and meatballs. She also provides revealing and humorous personal anecdotes, tear–out shopping guides to help parents zoom through the supermarket, and tips on how to deal with the kid that "must have" the latest sugar bomb cereal.

But this book also contains much more than recipes and tips. By solving problems on a practical level for parents, Seinfeld addresses the big picture issues that surround childhood obesity and its long–term (and ruinous) effects on the body. With the help of a prominent nutritionist, her book provides parents with an arsenal of information related to kids' nutrition so parents understand why it's important to throw in a little avocado puree into their quesadillas. She discusses the critical importance of portion size, and the specific elements kids simply must have (as opposed to adults) in order to flourish now and in the future: protein, calcium, vitamins, and Omega 3 and 6 fats.

Jessica Seinfeld's book is practical, easy–to–read, and a godsend for any parent that wants their kids to be healthy for a long time to come.
