World’s First Blog Psychologist’s Book Is a Hit

He is one of the most recognisable blog psychologists in the world – the first in fact. Founder of psychology website Psychreg and YouTuber Dennis Relojo-Howell has put his wisdom into print with a new chart-topping book that he hopes will help readers look after their mental health.

Let’s Talk about Behaviour is an easy-to-follow compilation of essays highlighting the need for the understanding and caring of mental health.

Dennis hopes Let’s Talk about Behaviour will allow him to reach a new audience.

He said: ‘When Psychreg was launched in March 2014, it emerged as a directory of people who are interested in psychology – before moving on to become a dynamic platform it is now.

‘Since then, a number of essays have been published, which convey insights and trends on a range of issues.

‘It has been consistently mentioned in these essays that in the world we live in today, we understand more about our own minds than we have ever done before.

‘The overarching aim of Let’s Talk about Behaviour is not only to offer the latest research trends but to reveal an understanding within psychology, mental health, and well-being.

‘It is hoped that this book will further stimulate a greater understanding and appreciation of mental health.’

Dennis, who now lives in London, grew up in the slums of Manila. But by the age of 25 the highly-subscribed travel blogger had already gained qualifications and even bought his first house.

His travel blogs gradually moved towards posts about mental health – a field where he has become highly respected over the past decade.

Let’s Talk about Behaviour allows Dennis to present his reasoning behind what we do and how we can prevent having poor mental health.

Dennis added: ‘In my book, I have tried to convey the importance of looking after our mental health and well-being.’

Since the publication of Let’s Talk about Behaviour it has reached number one in Amazon’s psychology and training charts.

It has also been awarded entirely five-star reviews.

Let’s Talk about Behaviour is available on paperback and Kindle formats.

BOLLYWOOD LEGEND AMITABH BACHCHAN CELEBRATED IN NEW BOOK


*Author Saurav Dutt has released ‘Dear Mr Bachchan’ a book exploring the unique career of the star, cultural phenomenon and global brand ambassador.

*Book explores the reasons behind the longevity of his stardom and how his screen persona continues to inspire many in India and around the world.

*The book is available worldwide through Amazon, and released exclusively in India through Pothi.com

LONDON, United Kingdom:

British Indian Author Saurav Dutt has released a new book about the life and career of the legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan. The novel follows a twelve year old boy from the poorest district of Mumbai, his cinematic obsession with the star and his dreams to help bring his family out of poverty, often emulating the angry young man of “Zanjeer”, the tragic antihero of “Deewar” and the entertainer of “Amar Akbar Anthony.”

The boy even gets the chance to meet his idol, but is forced to come to terms with the reality of his aspirations, the complexities of a modern India, a judgmental society as well as following his own journey to overcome adversity. The book promises to be an illuminating analysis of the nature of Indian, Asian, and global stardom and overcoming one’s own challenges.

Dutt, who released a tribute book to the 1919 Amritsar massacre at the House of Lords in England on its centenary in April last year, says:

“Amitabh Bachchan is a superstar in the truest sense of the word. His name and face have taken over the hearts of minds of people around the world for over 50 years. I’m hoping this uplifting story will be a real treasure trove for fans and newbies alike, exploring an industry where fashions change every Friday and understanding why and how Amitabh Bachchan has been synonymous with cinematic entertainment for so long.

The novel will not be purely about the star but talks to the shape of the modern India, how poverty, class and religion fits within the shape of dreams of this rising superpower, as well as the virtues of Bachchan himself, which the boy in the story wishes to emulate.”

Dutt added:

“Most of [his] virtues — like professionalism, determination, a never-say-die attitude — are traits which one can follow to achieve the ‘Excellence’ everyone aspires for. I wanted to talk about the farming crisis in India, how someone like Amitji sails through different phases of life — the good, the bad and the ugly, about how hopes and dreams-especially in today’s India-require unwavering determination, willpower, patience and a disposition to take it all in one’s stride.

This story is not just about Amitabh Bachchan, but also about a young, vibrant and ambitious India-encapsulated through the character of a boy who is told by everybody that success if not for people like him.”

Dear Mr.Bachchan is available now. Copies can be sent on request.

Saurav Dutt is an Author, Political Columnist and Human Rights Campaigner. His acclaimed debut novel ‘The Butterfly Room’ explored issues of domestic violence and homophobia within South Asian communities and has been showcased alongside leading political figures and human rights campaigners. His work for human rights and charity campaign work has taken Dutt to speaking engagements at the WEF, IKWRO, IWN, Houses of Parliament and TEDx. His work has been featured on BBC television and radio, Sky News and TIME magazine. He resides in the United Kingdom and Kolkata.

New Novel from Adelaide Books by Jim Meirose

NEW RELEASE FROM ADELAIDE BOOKS – MAY 2018

Jim Meirose’s Sunday Dinner with Father Dwyer brings the reader deep into the minds, memories, and hearts of its characters. Meirose’s novel is beautifully-paced, poetic and poignant with exquisite imagery, and captivates the reader inside each man’s experience. Set in the hard world of commercial container shipping, with the satirical “Sunday Dinner with Father Dwyer” a constant presence, Meirose’s characters’ thoughts, actions, and memories provide insights into the human condition and the deepest longings inside us all.

Skip and Noman set out on a fully-automated containership as its only crewmen, Johnny Foster is on his own trajectory after a failed attempt to scam crime boss Mackie, and Sunday Dinner with Father Dwyer, a TV show broadcast only on containerships plays 24/7 in the background of Skip’s and Noman’s bleak two-month trip to Shanghai. As Skip and Noman try to cope with the hard labor of ensuring the integrity of the containers, the severe solitude and solvent fumes permeating the ship bring on hallucinations and a questioning of their individual truths, on land and at sea. Johnny Foster fights against poisoning and punishment, unsure of his own reality and his ability to avoid death, sealed in a barrel in the hold as punishment by crime boss Mackie. And Father Dwyer himself begins to fray as he approaches the ending of his show after two thousand episodes, wanting to be seen by an audience he cannot detect. These intertwined stories of hardship and human isolation, in Meirose’s beautifully-paced experimental and poetic prose, carry the reader deep into the minds and hearts of these four men, weaving through past and present experiences, birth and death and rebirth, real and imagined. Meirose’s ability to guide the reader into the inner worlds of these men yields powerful insights into the human condition and the longings inside all humans.

Available from 5/15 from Adelaide Books
(and shortly from other outlets)

About the Author: Jim Meirose’s short work has appeared in numerous venues. His published books include Understanding Franklin Thompson (JEF pubs (2018)), Sunday Dinner With Father Dwyer (Adelaide Books (2018)), and Le Overgivers au Club de laRésurrection (Adelaide Books (2018))
