Sara is a comedian who has talked and joked about female sexuality, psychology and the media's portrayal of women on stage and screen. While researching her most recent live show, Sara realised that she had a lot more to say. In her first book Sara combines autobiography and evolutionary history to entertain and inform about the female body. Why we have boobs and how they have become so fetishised. How the kidnap of a 13-year old-chimney sweep's daughter created our present age of consent. The discovery and subsequent forgetting of the clitoris, the many eras of misunderstanding the female orgasm. Did you know that clitorectomys were once performed on British and American women to cure masturbation and hysteria? And that we learned so much about female sexuality from the behaviour of sperm? ANIMAL: HOW A WOMAN IS MADE aims to be entertaining and informative and personal and universal and silly about lots of things and serious about some.

CrossFit celebrity Christmas Abbott shows how to attain the body of your dreams with a targeted eating strategy and total-body workout plan that will whip glutes and hips—and every problem area—into top shape. As a formerly “skinny fat” woman, Christmas Abbott knows what real women need to get the butt and body of their dreams. In The Badass Body Diet, she dispels the myth of the health benefits of a “pear shape” body, teaches readers how to spot-reduce excess fat with targeted meal plans and recipes that zap cellulite, and galvanizes them with a quick and simple workout plan for a toned butt—the key to total body fitness. Your “glutes” (the technical term for booty) are the body’s largest and most powerful muscle group—and one of the most beautiful—but they can go dormant, flat, and flabby. Packed with essential information, and inspirational before-and-after photos of her clients, The Badass Body Diet shows how to whip that butt into shape and provides essential information on how to: Select essential “booty foods”—the right proteins, fats, and carbs Experience a total body workout with an easy-to-follow, powerful exercise program Improve posture and functional mobility and enhance overall health Target cellulite through diet, workout strategies, and other proven tips And much more. Unlike most “one approach fits all” diet and exercise books, The Badass Body Diet identifies the three types of dieters that Christmas has discovered working with hundreds of clients at her CrossFit gyms—Modifiers, Gainers, and Maintainers—and tailors her approach to each, providing specific goals for maximum results. Stop obsessing about a flat belly, Christmas advises. A Badass Body is a birthright, and it starts at the bottom—with a trim and tight tush.

Relieved and reborn, she made it her mission to empower other women to be able to do the same. As she says, 'Hormones affect everything.

With this breadth of symptoms, improving hormonal health is a goal for women at every stage of their lives Alisa Vitti says that medication and anti-depressants aren't the only solutions. The thousands of women she has treated in her Manhattan clinic know the power of her process that focuses on uncovering your unique biological make up. Groundbreaking and informative, WomanCode educates women about hormone health in a way that's relevant and easy to understand. Bestselling author and women's health expert Christiane Northrup, who has called WomanCode the 'Our Bodies, Ourselves of this generation', provides an insightful foreword.
