THE SUNDAY TIMES-BESTSELLING BOOK BY ONE OF BRITAIN'S BEST-LOVED COMIC WRITERS There are many aspects of modern life that trouble award-winning comedian David Mitchell, such as: Why is every film or TV programme a sequel or a remake? Why are people so f***ing hung up about swearing? Why do the asterisks in that sentence make it ok? Why do so many people want to stop other people doing things, and how can they be stopped from stopping them? Join Mitchell on a tour of the absurdities of our times - from Ryanair to Richard III, Downton Abbey to phone etiquette, UKIP to hotdogs made of cats. Funny, provocative and shot through with refreshing amounts of common sense, Thinking About It Only Makes It Worse celebrates and commiserates on the state of things in our not entirely glorious modern world. 'Mitchell is an exceptionally clever, eloquent and spot-on commentator . . . We should be grateful for him.' Daily Mail, Books of the Year

A renowned chiropractor shares his holistic and practical back pain treatment plan, revealing his good posture, body balance, and nutrition secrets. Back pain is an epidemic in this country affecting 80% of the population and costing billions of dollars. It’s the number two reason people miss work right behind colds and flu. The western world tends to treat the symptoms of back pain and not the cause. Why is it underdeveloped countries that don’t have this problem when clearly they have poorer health facilities? Traveling in Haiti and other third world countries, Dr. Dabbs has come across by mistake a secret that the western world has forgotten about. He found out after treating hundreds of Haitians and other underdeveloped patients in hospitals and mountain towns that even if they were eighty or ninety years old they had very little back pain and arthritis, and great movement in their joints. Combine this secret with twenty-three years in practice of treating back pain, he and his staff of physical therapists, MDs, trainers and chiropractors have come up with some amazing facts that most doctors get wrong about back pain. This is Why Your Back Hurts is an easy-to-read and understand book that tells the secret Dr. Dabbs has found that will astound you and give you hope that you too can live without back pain.
