Summary

Juxtaposing a trip to his childhood home -- where he has retreated to try to make some sense of his hectic existence in New York City -- with memories of growing up gay in seventies suburbia, Albo creates "Mike Albo." This character's memories are from a fictitious life that's outrageous, hilarious, and embarrassingly real. From a typical suburban childhood to his perpetual search for true love, Albo evokes a poignant, nostalgic past and a vibrant, energetic present. By turns vulnerable and jaded, flamboyant and obsessive, Hornito is full of subversive humor and outrageous irony.

    A new, counterintuitive theory for how social networks influence the spread of behavior 
    New social movements, technologies, and public-health initiatives often struggle to take off, yet many diseases disperse rapidly without issue. Can the lessons learned from the viral diffusion of diseases be used to improve the spread of beneficial behaviors and innovations? In How Behavior Spreads, Damon Centola presents over a decade of original research examining how changes in societal behavior--in voting, health, technology, and finance—occur and the ways social networks can be used to influence how they propagate. Centola's startling findings show that the same conditions accelerating the viral expansion of an epidemic unexpectedly inhibit the spread of behaviors.  
    While it is commonly believed that "weak ties"—long-distance connections linking acquaintances—lead to the quicker spread of behaviors, in fact the exact opposite holds true. Centola demonstrates how the most well-known, intuitive ideas about social networks have caused past diffusion efforts to fail, and how such efforts might succeed in the future. Pioneering the use of Web-based methods to understand how changes in people's social networks alter their behaviors, Centola illustrates the ways in which these insights can be applied to solve countless problems of organizational change, cultural evolution, and social innovation. His findings offer important lessons for public health workers, entrepreneurs, and activists looking to harness networks for social change. 
    Practical and informative, How Behavior Spreads is a must-read for anyone interested in how the theory of social networks can transform our world.

    ANXIETY – A NEW UNDERSTANDING, A PRACTICAL SOLUTION 
    There is a fast and natural way to get lasting relief from anxiety, but you may not have heard of it. Few people realise that the key is to correct the underlying disturbance in their physiology – that is, body function and blood chemistry, by learning to breathe correctly. And that is NOT deep breathing! 
    DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR TO YOU?
    
    	You feel more or less anxious most of the day
    	You sometimes feel breathless, spaced out or panicky for no reason
    	You sleep poorly, toss and turn, or snore, and wake up tired
    	You have scary palpitations or tingling in your hands or feet
    
    
     
    These are all common symptoms in people who do not breathe correctly.
     
    You can calm anxiety, stop panic attacks, and get your life back, by learning to breathe the way calm people do.
     
    Relief from Anxiety and Panic provides a fascinating insight into how your everyday way of breathing can be responsible for the mental torture and uncomfortable physical symptoms you may live with daily. Drawing on over two decades of research and clinical experience, physiotherapist Tess Graham shows you how to recognise your faulty breathing habits and change them – easily, step-by-step, through breathing retraining as thousands have done.
     
    You will learn simple strategies to
    
    
    	quickly relieve mental and physical symptoms of anxiety
    	abort a panic attack
    	reduce stress
    	increase focus
    	stay calm under pressure, and
    	switch off at night to enjoy restful sleep.
    
    
     
    You will learn how to control your physiology for a lifetime of wellbeing. You will read about lives transformed just by learning to breathe properly. It is not complicated. You usually feel benefits immediately.
     
    Take back control – change your breathing and change your life!
     
    From the author of the ground-breaking book, Relief from Snoring and Sleep Apnoea: a step-by-step guide to restful sleep and better health through changing the way you breathe.
