'Move over, Marie Kondo - Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin are the professional organisers the A-list now let rifle through their drawers.' - Sunday Times Style 'Professional organizers Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin are in high demand in Hollywood, having organized everything from pantries to play rooms for stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Rachel Zoe, Lauren Conrad and Mandy Moore. While the Nashville-based founders of The Home Edit (and its celeb-followed Instagram) may not be able to give you Rachel Zoe's enviable shoe collection, they can give you the tools to get your own into similarly immaculate order - and hey, that's a step in the right direction.' - People Believe this: every single space in your house has the potential to function efficiently and look great. The mishmash of summer and winter clothes in the closet? Yep. Even the dreaded junk drawer? Consider it done. And the best news: it's not hard to do-in fact, it's a lot of fun. From Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin, the Instagram-famous home organizers who made their orderly eye candy the method that everyone swears by, comes a signature approach to decluttering. The Home Edit walks you through paring down your belongings in every room, arranging them in a stunning and easy-to-find way (hello, labels!), and maintaining the system so you don't need another do-over in six months. When you're done, you'll not only know exactly where to find things, but you'll also love the way it looks. A master class and lookbook in one, The Home Edit is filled with bright photographs and detailed tips, from placing plastic dishware in a drawer where little hands can reach to categorizing pantry items by color (there's nothing like a little ROYGBIV to soothe the soul). Above all, it's like having your best friends at your side to help you turn the chaos into calm.

`[Like] the self-help success The Secret, but cooler and more sciencey.' - Evening Standard Life-changing opportunities pass us by every day - now we can train our minds to seize them Self-help books like The Secret promise that we can tap into the 'law of attraction' to control our destiny, simply by changing our thoughts. If we strip away the mystique, at the heart of this idea is a fundamental truth that is backed up by the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience: most of the things we want from life - health, happiness, wealth, love - are governed by our ability to think, feel and act; in other words, by our brain. Dr Tara Swart, a neuroscientist and executive coach with a background in psychiatry, is convinced beyond all doubt of our ability to alter how our brains work - and transform our lives. In The Source, she draws on the latest cognitive science and her experience coaching highly successful people to reveal the secret to mastering our minds. With a four-step plan to awaken the power of your brain, this unique guide to life combines science and spirituality in a way that is open-minded and practical. Discover how to: - Challenge 'autopilot' thinking and rewire your brain's pathways to fulfil your potential - Manifest the things you want by directing your energy towards your deepest values and ambitions - Harness the power of visualisation to prime your brain to grab opportunities and take control of your future - Attack life with confidence, dispel fear and avoid negative thinking Unlock your potential today - you are just four steps away from building a new confident you. `A game-changing blend of neuroscience and no-limits advice. If you have a nagging sense that you are capable of so much more, this book is for you.' Marshall Goldsmith, New York Times #1 bestselling author of Triggers, Mojo, and What Got You Here Won't Get You There `Tara Swart is an extremely calming presence, all the more so for being palpably intelligent. Her brain appears to require no boosting. I'd sign up in an eye blink... I like her - a lot' Hannah Betts, The Times `Dr Tara Swart is friendly, charming, and knows what she's talking about. Having qualified as a doctor, then trained as a neuroscientist, she worked as a psychiatrist before going into private practice as a highly sought-after expert to the rich and famous' Janet Street-Porter, Daily Mail `Neuroscientist Dr Tara Swart works with some of the City's highest-earning and most respected leaders in finance, law and media' Evening Standard `Dr Swart has become one of the most prominent voices in the field of neuroscience, and counts among her clients some of the biggest names in business' The Telegraph

An essential guide for those dealing with the Cape Water Crisis and for general water saving in South and southern Africa, a notoriously water-scarce region.
Three provinces in South Africa have been declared national disaster zones because of drought. The way we think about water needs to change, and fast. This is especially true for those of us who have running water and flush sanitation piped into our homes. For millions of South Africans, water is already a precious resource that costs toil to collect and fuel to heat. Our middle-class expectations that water will gush steaming from our dozens of indoor taps 24/7 are going to look as bizarre to future generations as the spectacle of Cleopatra bathing in asses' milk. Our Roman-orgy relationship with water is over.

This book will hopefully help to alleviate water panic and distress. A “can-do” compendium, it's meant to be a guide, not prescriptive - not all solutions or tips are one-size-fits-all. Think of it as an ally in your fight to save water and part of your survival kit, along with the first-aid box; Valium for water-worriers.
