REVIEWS

Often men don’t like discussing their general health let alone their mental health. A book like this is always welcome, raising awareness and encouraging men with mental health issues to seek help. By understanding and growing knowledge of this complex issue, we hope more men will ask for the guidance they need. The Rowland Hill Fund fully supports more insight into this often-silent subject.

Mary Jeffery, Fund Manager, Royal Mail

I am pleased to recommend this text, written by authoritative and highly experienced authors on this important topic. I spent over 20 years working with Royal Mail’s workforce and have since worked in many industries with predominantly male workforces. Mental ill-health is common and is something that we should not be afraid to talk about, however, many men find this difficult! I welcome this book and congratulate the authors in contributing to improving men’s health.

Dr Steven Boorman, CBE, Director Employee Health, Empactis

We all have a male friend who has suffered mental health issues. Often this may have been exacerbated by their work, their work did not understand or support them, or (by contrast), perhaps their work helped them. Many do not know that every day, Occupational Health professionals support men who are struggling with anxiety and depression at work. I encourage all organizations to take steps to invest in occupational health. We know, from our evidence reviews that this will lead to more productive workplaces that attract the most talented employees. Read this book to find out more!

Nick Pahl, CEO, Society of Occupational Medicine

The Financial Wellbeing Book

One of the biggest enemies of our general wellbeing is stress; and one of the biggest causes of stress is concern about money. This book provides a simple and practical guide to planning your daily and long-term finances by understanding your objectives and motivations. In doing so, it offers respite from the anxiety and stress caused by money problems. The author, an experienced financial adviser, argues that the key to financial wellbeing is to “know thyself” in order to allow decisions to be made, and to ensure those decisions are the rights ones for you. This is underpinned by having control of your daily finances, the ability to cope with a financial shock, to be able to have options in life, to have identifiable goals and a clear path to achieve them, and to ensure clarity and security for those we leave behind.

My 31 Practices

Do you want a life with a clear purpose? Do you want to be happy and less stressed? Do you want to be the best you can be? For most of us, Yes is an easy answer, but to do this is more of a challenge. This book provides a powerful and personal framework to help you find your own superhero and to be the best version of yourself.

It all starts with your core personal values, giving a foundation for the way you want to behave. Values are like a moral compass, guiding us when we face choice and uncertainty. When our behaviour is not aligned with our values, we feel stressed. But when our hearts, minds and bodies are aligned, then we find great personal power. Part workbook, part guidebook, My 31 Practices will help you to identify the right values for your life and then translate them into day-to-day behaviour. Author: Alan Williams & Steve Payne

In doing so, he helps us to reassess our current habits and behaviours, and makes us realize the wider choices we have in coping and dealing with people, issues and problems in our everyday lives. Part of the bestselling Concise Advice series - stylishly presented and easy to understand and apply.

Enabling Genius

Definition of “genius”: someone who has exceptionally intellectual or creative power or other natural ability. Doing or creating something truly creative will be the defining feature of success in the 21st century. This requires us to seek out our abilities and the innate resources born to us, raise our performance and fulfil our potential – in other words, to enable our genius.

This fascinating book examines the nature of genius in human beings and what it takes to go beyond mediocrity and ordinariness. Written by a leading thinker and consultant in human performance, together with contributions from other experts in the field, the book identifies three specific kinds of genius that are within everyone’s reach: unique individual genius (in a specific discipline, craft or skill set); genius in any discipline, craft or skill set; moments of genius (that occur as spontaneous, unplanned events); and collective genius (the coming together of individuals to deliver something extraordinary).

Target

Target presents a unique approach to business and life, taking inspiration from the wisdom of the ancient Japanese martial art of archery - Kyudo. Kyudo has a particular teaching: Right shooting always results in a hit . This means that you shouldn t worry about simply hitting the target; instead, you should calmly focus your energy and willpower on proper mindset and form. In doing so, this right-minded shooting will naturally result in a hit. In the business world, we are all under the pressure of hitting sales targets, improving profit margins, increasing efficiency and maintaining relationships. The philosophy of Kyudo gives new perspectives and solutions to the struggles and opportunities that anyone may encounter in their business and career. Target stands as a relevant guide to our modern times. The Kyudo aphorisms have been passed from Japanese masters directly to the author, and have been put into practice for professional and personal situations.

Minifesto

We live in times of great change. Or so we are told. Headlines blast messages about clashes between tribes, civilisations, political factions, East and West. We are told that unless we abstain from eating meat, flying or enjoying other modern amenities, the planet is doomed. We live in times of trouble. Of crossroads. Of signs of decline. We live in special times. In turn, future thinking is often reduced to people having opinions about other people’s opinions.
As opposed to manifesto, in manifesto many small ideas are created to inspire one person, your- self. By sharing the vision of the future, we can avoid telling stories and instead strive to surround ourselves with as many strange, conflicting ideas that we can in order to immerse ourselves in future possibilities and possible futures. Incorporating recognisable examples, Minifesto will illustrate how the world changes when a single individual does something new.
