All human beings have spontaneous needs for happiness, self-understanding, and love. In Feeling Good: The Science of Well Being, psychiatrist Robert Cloninger describes a way to coherent living that satisfies these strong basic needs through growth in the uniquely human gift of self-awareness. The scientific findings that led Dr. Cloninger to expand his own views in a stepwise manner during 30 years of research and clinical experience are clearly presented so that readers can consider the validity of his viewpoint for themselves. The principles of well-being are based on a non-reductive scientific paradigm that integrates findings from all the biomedical and psychosocial sciences. Reliable methods are described for measuring human thought and social relationships at each step along the path of self-aware consciousness. Practical mental exercises for stimulating the growth of self-awareness are also provided. The methods are supported by data from brain imaging, genetics of personality, and longitudinal biopsychosocial studies.Feeling Good: The Science of Well-Being will be of value to anyone involved in the sciences of the mind or the treatment of mental disorders. It will also interest theologians, philosophers, social scientists, and lay readers because it provides contemporary scientific concepts and language for addressing the perennial human questions about being, knowledge, and conduct.

Every day, people make life choices that, ideally, increase their evolutionary fitness the chances of survival and successful reproduction and lead to positive feelings of fulfilment, accomplishment, and happiness. Sometimes, however, individuals experience quite the opposite: feelings of sadness caused by fitness-decreasing choices. Fortunately, many advancements in evolutionary theory and evolutionary psychology have increased humans' capacity as a species to address the question of how to live a life characterized by more positive than negative feelings.Feeling Good reveals anyone can learn how to trigger mechanisms that generate positive feelings and increase positive fitness levels. The key is to employ an evolutionary perspective on how mental mechanisms generate feelings in relation to our life choices.From an insightfully evolutionary perspective, Feeling Good examines how to find and keep a mate, make good career decisions, build a solid social network, deal with death and negative influences, and make life choices in general that can lead to better and more sustainable mental and physical health. Menelaos Apostolou deepens our understanding of human nature by exploring what is good and evil in an evolutionary sense as well as in relation to religious dogmas; and whether making fitness-increasing life choices can lead to more good or more evil acts.

In the past few years we have learned much about nutrition and beauty. For instance, while we cannot stop aging itself, we can arrest and in some cases even reverse the visible effects of aging. This book is loaded with all of the latest information on the nutrition and health of your hair, skin, and nails. Various problems are addressed, such as nails that crack and split, wrinkles, dry skin, thin lusterless hair, and many others. While physical beauty shouldn't be all-important, most women do like to look their best and feel attractive. Your body reflects your image of yourself and your feelings about yourself. The way you look can influence your level of self-confidence and self-esteem. As far back as ancient Greece, Aristotle is recorded as saying, “Personal beauty is a greater recommendation than any letter of introduction.” True beauty radiates from within, and the loveliest women are those whose outer glow reflects an inner harmony. More than clothes, cosmetics, or coiffures, beauty depends on good health: physical, emotional, and spiritual. A woman's natural attributes – hair, skin, and nails when supplied with optimal nutrition can make her look attractive and appealing. Many women willingly spend a great deal of money to make themselves look good from the outside. After reading this book, I hope you'll spend as much money and time to make yourself look healthy from the inside. Your investment will be returned many times over!
