The youngest livingÂ Medal of Honor recipient delivers anÂ unforgettableÂ memoir that "willÂ inspire every readerâÂ (Jim Mattis)
NATIONAL BESTSELLER: A USA Today, Washington Post, and Publishers Weekly bestseller
On November 21, 2010, U.S. Marine Lance Corporal Kyle Carpenter was posted atop a building in violent Helmand Province, Afghanistan, when an enemy grenade skittered toward Kyle and fellow Marine Nick Eufrazio. Without hesitation, Kyle chose a path of selfless heroism that few can imagine. He jumped on the grenade, saving Nick but sacrificing himself.Â Â
One of the yearâs most anticipated books, Kyleâs remarkable memoir reveals a central truth that will inspire every reader: Life is worth everything weâve got. It is the story of how one man became a so-called hero who willingly laid down his life for his brother-in-armsâand equally, it is a story of rebirth, of how Kyle battled back from the gravest challenge to forge a life of joyful purpose.
Kyle Carpenterâs heart flatlined three times while being evacuated off the battlefield in Afghanistan. Yet his spirit was unbroken. Severely wounded from head to toe, Kyle lost his right eye as well as most of his jaw. It would take dozens of surgeries and almost three years in and out of the hospitalÂ to reconstruct his body. From there, he began the process of rebuilding his life. What he has accomplished in the last nine years is extraordinary: heâs come back a stronger, better, wiser person.
In 2014, Kyle was awarded the nationâs highest military decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his âsingular act of courageâ on that rooftop in Afghanistan, an action which had been reviewed exhaustively by the military. Kyle became the youngest living recipient of the awardâand only the second living MarineÂ so honored since Vietnam.
You Are Worth It is a memoir about the war in Afghanistan and Kyleâs heroics, and it is also a manual for living. Organized around the credos that have guided Kyleâs life (from âDonât Hide Your Scarsâ to âCall Your Momâ), the book encourages us to become our best selves in the time weâve been given onÂ earth. Above all, itâs about finding purpose, regardless of the hurdles that may block our way.
Moving and unforgettable, You Are Worth It is an astonishing memoir from one of our most extraordinary young leaders.
âThe F*ck It Diet is not only hilarious, it is scientifically and medically sound. A must read for any chronic dieter.â âChristiane Northrup, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Â Womenâs Bodies, Womenâs Wisdom
From comedian and ex-diet junkie Caroline Dooner, an inspirational guide that will help you stop dieting, reboot your relationship with food, and regain your personal power
DIETING DOESNâT WORK
Not long term. In fact, our bodies are hardwired against it. But each time our diets fail, instead of considering that maybe our ridiculously low-carb diet is the problem, we wonder whatâs wrong with us. Why canât we stick to our simple plan of grapefruit and tuna fish??? Why are we so hungry? What is wrong with us??? We berate ourselves for being lazy and weak, double down on our belief that losing weight is the key to our everlasting happiness, and resolve to do better tomorrow. But itâs time we called a spade a spade: Constantly trying to eat the smallest amount possible is a miserable way to live, and it isnât even working. So fuck eating like that.Â
In The F*ck It Diet, Caroline Dooner tackles the inherent flaws of dieting and diet culture, and offers readers a counterintuitively simple path to healing their physical, emotional, and mental relationship with food. Whatâs the secret anti-diet? Eat. Whatever you want. Honor your appetite and listen to your hunger. Trust that your body knows what it is doing. Oh, and donât forget to rest, breathe, and be kind to yourself while youâre at it.Â Once you get yourself out of survival mode, it will become easier and easier to eat what your body really needsâa healthier relationship with food ultimately leads to a healthier you.
An ex-yo-yo dieter herself, Dooner knows how terrifying it can be to break free of the vicious cycle, but with her signature sharp humor and compassion, she shows readers that a sustainable, easy relationship with food is possible.
Irreverent and empowering, The F*ck It Diet is call to arms for anyone who feels guilt or pain over food, weight, or their body. Itâs time to give up the shame and start thriving. Welcome to the F*ck It Diet. Letâs Eat.
