Humanity, argues Michel Odent, stands at a crossroads in the history of childbirth - and the direction we choose to take will have critical consequences. Until recently a woman could not have had a baby without releasing a complex cocktail of 'love hormones'. In many societies today, most women give birth without relying on the release of such a flow of hormones. Some give birth via caesarean section, while others use drugs that not only block the release of these natural substances, but do not have their beneficial behavioural effects. 'This unprecedented situation must be considered in terms of civilization', says Odent, and gives us urgent new reasons to rediscover the basic needs of women in labour.

Spiritual Midwifery is considered by many to be the bible of the home birth movement. This classic book on natural childbirth introduced a whole generation of women to the possibility of home birth and breast feeding. At a time when higher levels of technology were the wave of the future, the home birth movement testified to the naturalness and normalcy of the birthing process-even the sacredness of it. Ina May Gaskin, the author, is a powerful advocate for a woman's right to give birth without excessive and unnecessary medical intervention. Now in its fourth edition, her voice is needed as much now as then. In today's climate of unprecedented numbers of cesarean sections and induced labor, knowledge of this birthing process enables women to make informed choices regarding their maternity care and delivery options. The birthing stories and section on care of the newborn are valuable to anyone about to become a parent.

A Woman’s Guide to the Male Mind is the indirect result of a blog that I wrote in 2005 – “How Do You Tell If a Guy Fancies You?” The article was so popular, receiving more than 70 replies from women with lots more questions, that I launched my web site www.seducemen.co.uk. Since then, most of the advice I’ve given in hundreds of published articles was based on my own experiences and those of my friends. To write the book, however, I adopted a more scientific approach. I performed a significant amount of research into recent discoveries by anthropologists, sociologists, psychologists and biochemists on topics ranging from basic sexual attraction to personality type and male/female communications strategies. It’s my belief, therefore, that A Woman’s Guide to the Male Mind features the best of two worlds: common sense opinions backed by solid empirical evidence. By helping ladies understand the male point of view with regard to sex, dating and relationships; I hope to eliminate the senseless conflicts that so often erupt between lovers and would-be lovers. Once you understand a few fundamentals about the male mind and male behaviour, you will stop thinking of men as inscrutable blockheads and primitive misfits. You will no longer regard them as you would a small, nasty child – or an alien race. Arming yourself with the wisdom in this book, you’ll increase your odds of finding happiness and harmony in romantic relationships, and you will help ensure that this bliss lasts a lifetime. By the time a man reaches maturity, he has passed through four evolutionary stages in his attitude toward women and relationships. It’s very important to understand – and identify – these four stages, because it will save you from wasting time on guys who aren’t ready for serious romance.
