Bullying and harassment is not only a problem for those immediately affected by the experience but also for wider society. Bullying and harassment has a negative impact upon individuals but also has consequences for the economy, productivity, moral and wellbeing. Acquiescence to bullying and harassment sets the bar for all citizens, from the young to the old.

Bullying and Harassment of Adults is not a legal handbook or a procedural guide but is a book about behaviour and its consequences. Published as an easy to use format this book is divided into distinct sections which eases you through key areas relating to the bullying and harassment of adults:

=> Understanding human behaviour

=> Seeing the bigger picture. The relationship between prejudice and discrimination with harassment and bullying. Creating awareness that bullying and harassment are on a continuum of behaviours

=> Recognising how harassment and bullying is manifested

=> Making sense of being bullied and harassed

=> Overcoming the experience of bullying and harassment

The handbook is useful for:

=> Individuals who have experienced or are going through the experience of bullying and harassment, to help increase insight about what was/is happening

=> Those who are providing support to someone who is being bullied or harassed in order to increase understanding of what the individual is going through

=> Organisations and others to recognise the moral issues and wider implications of bullying and harassment and its insidious nature in eroding a culture of respect




A Word from the Author

Author Jacqueline Mansell pictureRecently the news is full of stories of bullying and harassment of adults, whether in government, showbiz or your local office, this behaviour is not acceptable. What for years has been seen as “harmless fun” or “power plays” is now recognised for what it is – bullying.

I have worked with large organisations and government officials and fully understand the impact this behaviour has on people over time. I created the “To the Point” series to be a simple reference point for people who are struggling in these situations or who want to prevent them from happening. The book shows you the signs, how to avoid it happening and how to get help if it is.

Curiosity killed the Craving by Raj Fernandes

Curiosity Killed the Craving is a self-help book by Raj Fernandes.
full cover Curiosity Killed the Craving - quit smoking without the fuss by Raj Fernandes

Blurb

Quitting smoking doesn’t have to be intimidating.
Having smoked for over 40 years, I had tried all sorts of methods of quitting. But no matter what I tried, the cravings would always return to haunt me. All attempts to overcome cravings failed until I discovered a simple technique that helped me get the better of them. The secret turned out to be my own mind. So I practiced observing the onset of cravings in a curious, mindful way. This helped me acknowledge the presence of cravings rather than struggle with them.

In my new no-nonsense quit smoking book CURIOSITY KILLED THE CRAVING., I share what has worked for me and guide you through the process from preparing to quit, to the realities of the first few days without nicotine, to making positive lifestyle changes going forward. It is full of practical tips and personal experiences. Quitting is never easy, but trust me, if I can do it anyone can.

So say goodbye to Nicotine (or Mr. Nic as I know him) today!




A Word from the Author

Author Raj Fernandes picture 2Having smoked cigarettes for well over 40 years the thought that I should ‘pack it in’ hit me hard one night. At 11pm on that eventful night I happily dumped three packets of cigarettes, my legendary glass ashtray, and four lighters. That was me giving Mr Nicotine the push – I never wanted to see him again. I quit smoking for two reasons – to live a healthier life and secondly spread the word out there by sharing my story.

Since then my quit journey has been fascinating. Fascinating because it has made me discover the wonders and power of my own mind. I’ve been watching my mind with mind, so to speak. It taught me to use curiosity in a positive way. Hence the title of the book CURIOSITY KILLED THE CRAVING.

To be honest I would not have achieved this without my strong efforts to read up on the subject of addictions, take advice and get the support of a quit smoking community. Today I feel new. I feel clean. I feel energetic. I feel in control. More than anything, I feel proud of myself. If a weak-willed person like me can do it, so can you.
Writing a book has always been on my bucket list and I am proud to have pulled this off. But hey, I could not have done this without the assistance of my publishers. They have been amazing. What’s more it enlightened and educated me on the writing process; right from the first manuscript right down to editing, proofreading, structuring etc. It proved to me that learning is an enjoyable life long process.

CURIOSITY KILLED THE CRAVING is different in the sense that it approached smoking addiction in a curious, mindful way. Then again it is a bite-sized, easily digestible book (just 58 pages) and it’s packed with practical tips from preparing to quit to lifestyle changes. My mission is to truly, honestly see more people stop this disgusting and deadly habit!
