Toddlers hold the secrets to having more fun and living a fulfilling life. These are secrets we once knew and ones that a Harvard-trained physician can help us rediscover.

Terrible twos, temper tantrums, and grocery store meltdowns are usually the first things that come to mind when people think of toddlers. But pediatric emergency medicine physician and researcher Dr. Hasan Merali has long thought toddlers are among the best people in our society and adults could do well to learn from them. These extraordinary youngsters can be impulsive, yes, but with this comes a remarkable ability to take risks and ask questions - two qualities that can help us enjoy life more. Toddlers act kindly toward strangers, are eager to work with others to solve problems, and demonstrate extraordinary dedication and perseverance. These are all traits that many of us aspire to have in order to improve both our personal and professional lives.

To unpack this behavior, Dr. Merali includes many humorous examples from his experience as a pediatrician and father, but the core lessons are drawn from two decades worth of fascinating and surprising studies in child psychology and development. Merali connects these studies to research about adults to create the first book to offer adults important lessons that can be gleaned from toddlers. Toddlers can teach you many things, including how to:

  • Lose weight naturally
  • Sleep better
  • Build stronger friendships
  • Improve teamwork
  • Be more productive
  • Have more fun, and
  • Live a more fulfilling life


Sleep Well, Take Risks, Squish the Peas shows us how toddlers bring out the best in humanity and how we can, too. It's a whole new way of looking at and learning from toddlers.

Over the decades, McMaster has been home to several extraordinary university leaders. While leadership styles have varied from president to president, their strategies around risk-taking have been remarkably similar. In his newly released book Transformative: McMaster University's Tradition of Breaking with Tradition, two-time McMaster graduate Scott Koblyk explores these similarities—along with the drive, intelligence and innovation required to take a mid-sized Canadian university from good to great. What's more, Transformative outlines how McMaster's particular brand of strategic disruption can be taught, learned, emulated and adapted by other leaders.

A wide-ranging exploration of the legalization of cannabis in Canada and what we can learn from it.

Cronyism, greed, and corruption trumped social justice and public health in Canada's legalization of cannabis. How did we get here? Where are we going? More humane drug policy—which prioritizes public health over corporate profits—is possible. Canada legalized the sale of recreational cannabis in 2018. Buzz Kill recounts the political and corporate collusion in creating an industry out of thin air that supplanted an illicit century-old industry. Drawing on lessons from alcohol and tobacco regulation in Canada and the United States, this book shows that, rather than basing policy choices on evidence, Canada's political elites created a new regulated industry that would line their own pockets.

A noted neuroscientist reveals groundbreaking research on how fitness and exercise can combat mental health conditions such as anxiety, dementia, ADHD, and depression, and offers a plan for improving focus, creativity, and sleep.

Jennifer Heisz shares paradigm-shifting research on how exercise affects the brain, finding that intervals of intense workouts, or even leisurely walks, help stop depression and dementia, lessen anxiety and ADHD, and encourage better sleep, creativity, and resilience. Physical inactivity is the greatest risk factor contributing to dementia and anxiety - it's as much a factor as genetics. In addition, exercise's anti-inflammatory properties make it the most effective treatment strategy for those who are depressed and don't respond to anti-depressants. The book focuses on overcoming inertia; using exercise to help fight addictions; how we can improve our memory with fitness even as we age; and, importantly, how exercise can help us sleep better, improve focus, and be more creative. Included are easy to use plans for unique aerobic and resistance workouts designed to strengthen the brain.
