Written with authority and compassion, this is the essential resource for individuals and families seeking expert guidance on diagnosis, treatment, and recovery, featuring inspiring, true stories from real people in their own words.
Millions of people in the United States are affected by mental illness every year. The Covid-19 pandemic not only caused new or aggravated symptoms in people, but further exposed the shortcomings of the American mental health system. Despite advances in telehealth, the healthcare industry remains chaotic, underfunded, and often inaccessible, and many people are asking themselves the same questions: What does it mean when different doctors give me different diagnoses? What if my insurance company won’t cover my treatment? Will I have to be on medication my whole life? Will I ever feel better? Too many of us are confused, afraid, and overwhelmed. Families and friends are often left in the dark about how best to help their loved ones, how to deal with financial and logistical issues, and how to handle the emotional challenges of loving someone who is suffering.
You Are Not Alone is here to offer help. Written by Dr. Ken Duckworth with the expertise of a leading psychiatrist and the empathy of a peer, this comprehensive guide provides
- Relatable first-person stories that illustrate the diversity of mental health journeys
- Practical guidance on dealing with mental health conditions and navigating care
- Research-based evidence on what treatments and approaches work
- Insight and advice from renowned clinical experts and practitioners
This singular resource—the first and only book fully supported by the National Alliance on Mental Illness—is a powerful reminder that help is here, and we are not alone.

The EmpressRegular price $17.00 Sale price $13.60 Save $3.40
Coming soon to Netflix, The Empress is a captivating, vivid and remarkably modern tale about falling in love and finding one’s voice.
The year is 1853, and Princess Elisabeth “Sisi” of Bavaria has been very clear: She will wait for the head-over-heels love the poets speak of, or she will have no love at all. Just because her older sister, Helene, is eagerly heeding their mother’s advice and preparing to marry Emperor Franz of Austria does not mean Sisi must also subject herself to such a dutiful existence. Sisi knows there is more to life than luncheons and corsets—if only someone would let her experience it all firsthand.
Meanwhile, in Austria, the emperor is recovering from an assassination attempt that left him wounded and scared. In a bid to keep the peace, Franz has recommitted himself to his imperial duties—and promised to romance the pliant Helene of Bavaria at his upcoming birthday celebration. How better to unite the empire than with the announcement of a new empress?
But when Sisi and Franz meet unexpectedly in the palace gardens, away from the prying eyes and relentless critique of the court, their connection cannot be denied. And as their illicit conversations turn into something more, they must soon choose between the expectations of their families and standing up for what they truly believe in . . .
Patty Lyons' Knitting Bag of TricksRegular price $22.99 Sale price $18.39 Save $4.60
Do you wish your knitting was better and that you had an expert knitter by your side to help you when it goes wrong? Then this is the book for you.
Patty Lyons is an expert in all things knitting related. She will help you solve all of your knitting problems—from edges that won’t behave to adjusting your yarn tension—with the 70+ hacks in Patty Lyons’ Knitting Bag of Tricks. Featuring dozens of brand new how-tos and the most popular tricks from author Patty Lyons’ beloved advice columns, this handy guide goes far beyond your typical knitting tips. Knitters of all levels will discover both why and how various techniques work, and improve both the look of their knitting and their command of stitches. It’s sure to take any knitter’s skills up to the next level. With more than 30K followers on social media and name-checks by everyone from the Wall Street Journal to popular television show, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Patty is a well-known name in the knitting community.
This isn’t like other ‘how to knit’ books with basic information about casting on and how to form stitches (although there is a handy how-to reference section at the back for when you need a refresher), this is a book about the ‘why’ of knitting. Not about ‘why we knit’ but about ‘why we knit the way we do’. By digging deeper into the ‘why’ Patty doesn’t just fix your knitting problems she helps you to truly understand why the yarn/stitches/needles/tension are acting in a certain way and how to fix any issues.
She starts by looking at the basics and explores the anatomy of a stitch, examining how this affects the look, feel and shape of the finished knitted fabrics and how different knitting techniques affect the finished outcome. Patty examines the problems caused by common mistakes that many knitters make without even noticing before diving into more complex knitting issues and how to trouble shoot them. All of Patty’s techniques and tips are illustrated with detailed step-by-step artworks for absolute clarity.
And, as you’d expect from a Patty Lyons book, there is a healthy scattering of humor and irreverence throughout – you might take knitting seriously but you don’t have to be serious while knitting!
