Abstract
Leading activist and essayist Brynn Tannehill tells you everything you ever wanted to know about transgender issues but were afraid to ask. The book aims to break down deeply held misconceptions about trans people across all aspects of life, from politics, law and culture, through to science, religion and mental health, to provide readers with a deeper understanding of what it means to be trans.The book walks the reader through transgender issues, starting with "What does transgender mean?" before moving on to more complex topics including growing up trans, dating and sex, medical and mental health, and debates around gender and feminism. Brynn also challenges deliberately deceptive information about transgender people being put out into the public sphere. Transphobic myths are debunked and biased research, bad statistics and bad science are carefully and clearly refuted.This important and engaging book enables any reader to become informed the most critical public conversations around transgender people, and become a better ally as a result.Market: General interest, professionals working with the trans community, people questioning their own gender identity, family and friends of people transitioning.

Abstract
Raina wakes up one night with a terrible upset stomach. Her mom has one, too, so it's probably just a bug. Raina eventually returns to school, where she's dealing with the usual highs and lows: friends, not-friends, and classmates who think the school year is just one long gross-out session. It soon becomes clear that Raina's tummy trouble isn't going away... and it coincides with her worries about food, school, and changing friendships. What's going on?
Raina Telgemeier once again brings us a thoughtful, charming, and funny true story about growing up and gathering the courage to face -- and conquer -- her fears.

Dans cette édition mise à jour, Catherine Lefebvre fait le point sur le sucre et les changements survenus ces dernières années concernant les impacts d'une surconsommation sur notre santé et celle de la planète. Certes, une prise de conscience s'est faite dont les effets ont été vérifiables, avec notamment l'adoption de nouvelles mesures prises par certains gouvernements : réforme des politiques de transformation alimentaire, taxes sur les boissons sucrées, révision du guide alimentaire. La mise à jour de cet ouvrage permet d'approfondir notre réflexion sur les répercussions du modèle agricole actuel sur l'environnement et la biodiversité, et sur le coût humain relié à l'exploitation de la main-d'oeuvre dont on parle trop peu, mais qui rappelle malheureusement le temps de l'esclavage. L'auteure démontre ainsi les rouages d'un système alimentaire qui ne tourne pas rond.

Appréhender et tempérer les troubles de l'adolescence. Tous les ados ne se ressemblent pas. Certains vivent cette période repliés dans leur chambre, d'autres ne cessent de sortir. Certains perdent tout intérêt pour les études, d'autres sont toujours premiers, certains ont le joint aux lèvres dès le lever, d'autres n'y toucheraient pour rien au monde et d'autres encore oscillent entre les deux extrêmes. Il reste que certains traits se dégagent et que tous vivent une période complexe. Crise ? Oui, en quelque sorte. L'adolescent traverse une crise, une transformation. L'adolescence inquiète parce que les risques sont effectivement là. Et pour traverser cette étape, Les ados ont besoin de leurs parents. A leurs côtés et non en face d'eux. Conçu comme les précédents - par tranche d'âge -, ce livre explore la psychologie des adolescents, ainsi que certaines composantes biologiques et physiologiques, et aide ainsi à poser un regard nouveau sur les motivations de leurs comportements.

Abstract
When Meaghan O'Connell got accidentally pregnant in her twenties and decided to keep the baby, she realized that the book she needed -- a brutally honest, agenda-free reckoning with the emotional and existential impact of motherhood -- didn't exist. So she decided to write it herself.
And Now We Have Everything is O'Connell's exploration of the cataclysmic, impossible-to-prepare-for experience of becoming a mother. With her dark humor and hair-trigger B.S. detector, O'Connell addresses the pervasive imposter syndrome that comes with unplanned pregnancy, the fantasies of a "natural" birth experience that erode maternal self-esteem, post-partum body and sex issues, and the fascinating strangeness of stepping into a new, not-yet-comfortable identity.
Channeling fears and anxieties that are still taboo and often unspoken, And Now We Have Everything is an unflinchingly frank, funny, and visceral motherhood story for our times, about having a baby and staying, for better or worse, exactly yourself.

There is a lot of misinformation thrown around these days, especially online. Headlines tell us to do this, not that---all in the name of living longer, better, thinner, younger. In Hype, Dr. Nina Shapiro distinguishes between the falsehoods and the evidence-backed truth. In her work at Harvard and UCLA, with more than twenty years of experience in both clinical and academic medicine, she helps patients make important health decisions everyday. She?s bringing those lessons to life here with a blend of science and personal stories to discuss her dramatic new definition of ?a healthy life.?
