A comprehensive guide to the biological mysteries that lie behind teenage behaviour.

During the teenage years the brain is undergoing its most radical and fundamental change since the age of two. Nicola Morgan's carefully researched, accessible and humorous examination of the ups and downs of the teenage brain has chapters dealing with powerful emotions, the need for more sleep, the urge to take risks, the difference between genders and the reasons behind addiction or depression. The revised edition of this classic book contains important new research, including information about the discovery of mirror neurons and their effect on the teenage brain.

A scientifically informative and accurate self-help guide to teenage stress
Nicola Morgan is something of an authority on the teenage brain and is often invited to schools and colleges to speak on the subject. She came up with the idea of The Teenage Guide To Stress because so many parents and teenagers contacted her for advice and help. The book is divided into three sections: Section One explains what stress is and looks at the ways teenage stress is different. Section Two deals with a number of issues that affect teenagers – from anger, depression and sexual relationships to cyber-bullying, exams and eating disorders – and offers guidance and advice, as well as looking at how pre-existing conditions such as OCD and dyslexia are affected by adolescence. Section Three is concerned with how to deal with and prevent the symptoms of stress, as well as healthy ways of looking after your mind and body. At the back of the book is a glossary and list of useful resources.
Write a Great Synopsis covers: the function of a synopsis, the differences between outlines and synopses, dealing with requirements for different agents and publishers, finding the heart of your book, how to tackle non-linear plots, multiples themes, sub-plots and long novels, and it answers all the questions and confusions that writers have. Nicola also introduces readers to her patent Crappy Memory Tool, explains the art of crafting a 25-word pitch, and demonstrates with real examples. Gold-dust for writers at all stages.
Carole Blake, top agent and author of From Pitch to Publication: "It is a truly fabulous tool for authors, addressing a problem area that can stop new writers in their tracks. ... I think this book will alleviate so much of the stress that writers feel when approaching the moment when they must write a synopsis. Congratulations to Nicola Morgan: I will be recommending it to clients. The advice is pure gold."
Joanna Cannon, aspiring writer: "Write a Great Synopsis answered all of my awkward questions and now I actually want to write one. Nicola Morgan's usual wit, wisdom and honesty, as well as the clear, helpful information, make her advice stand out in the crowd of 'how-to' books on the market."
Liz de Jager, writer and blogger: “Having read a great many blogposts and comments from all and sundry on the internet, and still come away confused, I fell on my copy of Write a Great Synopsis with gusto. Nicola Morgan has gone and, in her usual charming and no-nonsense style, given us something to refer to again and again. There is solid advice from Nicola, several actual examples, but also commentary from industry professionals, which genuinely makes you re-think your approach to writing in general, and working on that synopsis."
Clare Kirkpatrick, aspiring author: "I am now actually itching to ... get to what now feels like the exciting job of writing the synopsis! I had a go at the method Nicola recommends, and found to my delight that my novel does indeed have a heart and it's not just a pile of tangled crap after all. I am all fired up again!"
Kirsty Logan, writer newly signed with an agent: "I was starting to think that writing a synopsis was harder than writing a novel, but Nicola Morgan stopped me panicking, with her wise, friendly, experienced advice."

Late nights, addictive technology and minds racing with exam stress and friendship worries: it's no wonder the teenage stereotype is tired eyes and sleeping through the weekend. Just like adults, teenagers are sleeping less now than ever before, yet sleep is crucial to our health and well-being. Internationally renowned expert on the teenage brain, Nicola Morgan, tackles this essential subject – asking why teenagers so desperately need a good night's sleep, exploring what a lack of sleep does to their developing brains, and explaining how to have the best sleep possible.

A practical, positive, utterly sensible guide for exam students, for the best chance of success.
Exams are stressful and most people don't love them! This book can't remove all your exam nerves and, anyway, a certain level of stress can help you perform well. Instead this book aims to help you avoid bad stress and have the greatest chance of doing your best when exams arrive.
It will give you the tools to control your body and mind during this challenging phase. And the tools will help you at many other stressful times of life.
Exam Attack covers a huge range of learning techniques. You'll find advice on food (and how to cope when you lose your appetite), sleep, panic, revision, getting help, managing screens and social media. And there's up-to-date advice on note-taking and learning.
One of the core principles in this book is that our mental and physical health, or 'wellbeing', affects how we perform. It isn't a luxury or optional extra: it affects every aspect of life. Rest, relaxation and taking time-out from revision can actually help you to learn and perform more effectively.
The sensible, achievable suggestions throughout include current advice on revision techniques; positive attitudes to work and achieving the right mindset; self-belief and self-esteem; dealing with distractions and procrastination, such as how to push yourself when you're really not feeling up to it; and how to let go of your phone and regulate social media use.
There's no doubt that exams are stressful, but with this comprehensive guide, you will have all the tools you need to achieve and succeed.
