End Emotional Eating
by Jennifer Taitz

If you eat to help manage your emotions, you may have discovered that it doesn’t work. Once you’re done eating, you might even feel worse. Eating can all too easily become a strategy for coping with depression, anxiety, boredom, stress, and anger, and a reliable reward when it’s time to celebrate.

If you are ready to experience emotions without consuming them or being consumed by them, the mindfulness, acceptance, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills in End Emotional Eating can help. This book does not focus on what or how to eat—rather, these scientifically supported skills will teach you how to manage emotions and urges gracefully, live in the present moment, learn from your feelings, and cope with distress skillfully.

This book has been awarded The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies Self-Help Seal of Merit — an award bestowed on outstanding self-help books that are consistent with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) principles and that incorporate scientifically tested strategies for overcoming mental health difficulties. Used alone or in conjunction with therapy, our books offer powerful tools readers can use to jump-start changes in their lives.

The T-Factor Diet
by Martin Katahn

The antidote to fad diets: here is the original bestseller that revolutionized the way we think about food. By now, most people who have tried some of the recent fad diets have realized that those diets don’t work; weight lost in the initial stages is eventually gained back, leaving the dieter at the same weight as before, or even heavier. What does work, however, is the program outlined in The T-Factor Diet, the groundbreaking book that has sold well over a million copies since initial publication. Its runaway success launched the best-selling T-Factor Fat Gram Counter and its companion guides, changing a nation’s attitude toward high-fat foods. This book’s scientifically proven advice remains true today: by understanding the “T-factor” or thermogenic effect, in which carbohydrate calories are burned faster than fat calories, you can lose weight quickly and safely, and keep it off–all without going hungry. Dr. Martin Katahn explains how to choose foods that naturally maximize the T-factor level, thus activating the body’s hidden fat-burning potential; he also includes exercises, recipes, and meal plans.

An Introduction to Statistical Learning
by Gareth James, Daniela Witten, Trevor Hastie, Robert Tibshirani

An Introduction to Statistical Learning provides an accessible overview of the field of statistical learning, an essential toolset for making sense of the vast and complex data sets that have emerged in fields ranging from biology to finance to marketing to astrophysics in the past twenty years. This book presents some of the most important modeling and prediction techniques, along with relevant applications. Topics include linear regression, classification, resampling methods, shrinkage approaches, tree-based methods, support vector machines, clustering, and more. Color graphics and real-world examples are used to illustrate the methods presented. Since the goal of this textbook is to facilitate the use of these statistical learning techniques by practitioners in science, industry, and other fields, each chapter contains a tutorial on implementing the analyses and methods presented in R, an extremely popular open source statistical software platform.

Two of the authors co-wrote The Elements of Statistical Learning (Hastie, Tibshirani and Friedman, 2nd edition 2009), a popular reference book for statistics and machine learning researchers. An Introduction to Statistical Learning covers many of the same topics, but at a level accessible to a much broader audience. This book is targeted at statisticians and non-statisticians alike who wish to use cutting-edge statistical learning techniques to analyze their data. The text assumes only a previous course in linear regression and no knowledge of matrix algebra.
