I first became a biologist, and later a scientific journalist, only because I was lucky enough to listen to some excellent lecture courses at St. Petersburg University, whose authors first showed me how amazing biology can be and how well she explains the mysterious phenomena in real human life. First of all, I was stunned by the course of psychogenetics, developed by Oleg Nikolaevich Tikhodeev, and the course of psycho-endocrinology, which was created by Dmitry Anatolyevich Zhukov and Ekaterina Pavlovna Vinogradova.
I am grateful to my colleagues in scientific journalism, who taught me to write connected texts and to engage in popularization, that is, to balance on the fragile boundary between too boring and too incorrect statements. The most useful and interesting work in my life was the creation of the popular science program “Progress” on Channel Five, where absolutely all my colleagues taught me important things, especially Elena Sadovnikova, Igor Makarov, Ekaterina Alyabyeva and Nikolai Kovalkov. I am also very grateful to my current colleagues from the “Program for the Future”, for sympathetic to my idea to write a book and for a few months didn’t burden me with overtime work (which is, generally speaking, a unique situation for television).
This book came out thanks to the heroic work of many people in the Dynasty Foundation, in the Corpus publishing house, and especially thanks to my dedicated reviewers. Alexander Markov, an expert in the theory of evolution and the best popularizer of biology in Russia, not only agreed to read my book in manuscript and make a bunch of valuable comments - he is generally to blame for thinking about the book because he was the only person who believes in that I am able to do this, and endlessly convinced me of this myself. Geneticist Svetlana Borinskaya, when she accidentally heard that I was writing a book, volunteered to read it and pointed me to several incorrect formulations in the text, primarily in the chapter on alcohol. The editor of the book, Eugene Love, not only improved the style of the narration, but also revealed several factual inaccuracies.
Basically, the book is written from scratch, but some pieces — a couple of paragraphs from the chapters on sex, almost the whole chapter on premenstrual syndrome and a significant part of the story about the effects of stress on health — is a slightly edited retelling of my own articles published earlier on the website Slon.ru and in the magazine “Russian pharmacies”. Some other fragments intersect with my previous articles (written, for example, for the Troitsky Variant newspaper, STRF.ru ​​website or the Science in Focus magazine) - though not literally, but almost completely reproduce them in meaning. In addition, many of the studies found for the first time for the sake of the book later also served as the basis for my articles, for example, published in the magazines Metropol and Men's Health. Accordingly, I am grateful to all publishers with whom I cooperate, for the fact that they do not object to the intersection of the subject matter of texts.

Of particular value in this book are pictures. They were drawn by my former classmate Nikolai Kukushkin, a molecular biologist from Harvard. I am very pleased that I was attracted to creating illustrations by the artist-biologist: he knows much more about any chapter of my text than I do, and therefore there is not a single unconscious biological blooper in the drawings and captions. But in his drawings he is full of humor - partly it is clear to all, partly - only to biologists, and some pictures will make Nikolay Kukushkin laugh and a couple of dozen equally abrupt molecular biologists (so that if they happen to read my book, at least something will please).
I am also grateful to my parents and grandparents for provoking me at one time to go to the university and prevent me from leaving him in that difficult period when I already understood that I’m not going to be a scientist out of me, but I still didn’t guess that I can be a good scientific journalist. Then it was unpleasant, but in the end it turned out very cool. I am grateful to my first husband, Yana, for supporting me while I was studying and building a career, and then (after our divorce) selflessly tinkering with me and drinking me coffee, while I ached, that the book is very heavy and I I never write in my life, and besides, I fixed my computer, which was broken in the middle of the creative process, so I didn’t have to finish writing the last third of the text on a tiny and faded netbook. I am grateful to those my friends who also wrote books (and made me feel that this was possible in principle), and to those friends who have not written books yet (but now they will certainly do it, since even I did). And most of all, I am grateful to Nicolas, the smartest and most beautiful boy of all my friends (at the time of writing this book). A few months ago, we tragically broke up after a short but stormy romance. He left with some young lady (a special thanks to her) to Casablanca, and I, with my broken heart, stayed for New Year in Moscow - and sat down to write a book. What else could I do?
Yes, and I am also grateful to the company “Alavar”. They wrote a simple computer game in which Masyanya walks along the beach and carries kvass. Each level takes less than five minutes and allows you to unload your head quite well while trying to think of the next paragraph of the article or book. It is terrible to imagine how many millions of kvass mugs I have sold over the past few months.
And of course, all this book-writing activity makes sense only because there are people who read them. I'm really terribly glad that you bought the book and read it right through to the very end. If you like it, then write something like “peschi ischo's author!” On LJ - I’ll find a blog search, and I’ll have nowhere to go with a submarine.

  4. So who am I really?
    So who am I really? And who is each of us? And who actually shapes our intentions, desires, claims and problems? This topic is quite complex and lengthy, and we will examine it in detail in the next book, but for now let's do this: think about whether each individual wants to find a Wizard in himself. That is, in the heap of their social masks and skins to find a creative personality,

  6. How to be a wife who does not work and is fully dependent on her husband?
    From your question, I realized that you are not already accepting the fact that you are dependent on your husband. Are you interested in how the spouse himself relates to this state of affairs? Do you understand what is really going on in the depths of your soul? Have you tried to share your feelings with your husband about this situation before? You need to realize that in this world everyone helps someone, but
  7. Good appetite
    If you are not able to eat the simplest food with joy, pleasure and deep gratitude to the Creator, you have a bad appetite. If you find very appetizing plain black bread or whole cooked brown rice, you have a good appetite and your stomach has a feeling of healthy hunger. A good appetite for food and sex is health itself. Sexual desire and happy satisfaction - necessary

  11. Happiness
    Your happiness, freedom, justice, health and joy should be all yours. Health or freedom received from others is a debt that must be returned sooner or later, if you do not want to become a slave or a thief.
