WOR(L)D: One Woman's Discovery of the Power of Words

Words change how you think, feel, act, and even what you see. Neuroscience shows that words from different languages can re-wire your brain, helping you to create a positive mindset. Some words help you feel joy, see beauty, believe in a better world, and your own power to create it. These are the positive words you will find in this book: global words of wellness from ancient and modern languages all over the world. Travel across the world to discover them with Lucy Turner: a United Nations civil servant who lived and worked on five continents. Through language-learning, she found words to feel calm, confident and courageous.  WOR(L)D presents these words  through funny stories and ground-breaking science. WOR(L)D will help you feel happy now, and inspired to create a better future. 

Turned my mood to pure sunshine.”  – Lord Robertson of Port Ellen, Former Secretary General of NATO.
