Book Excerpt :

Back pain is very hard (often impossible) to diagnose and to specify, hence heavy painkillers are thrown at people. But the only way to beat the pain is to understand it. Based on cutting-edge research into back pain and the psychology of pain itself, David Rogers and Grahame Brown have set up the Functional Restoration Service at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham – the UK’s leading centre for back pain. Here they have developed the pioneering BIOPSYCHOSOCIAL approach: BIO – How your body processes pain; what physical triggers you have and why; where your body holds pain PSYCHO – where your pain is coming from; what exactly your pain is; the power of your mind to deal with and stop pain SOCIAL – all the environmental factors that will contribute to your back pain, and how, why and when to change them Based on this revolutionary and already hugely successful approach, Back to Life offers a whole new way of dealing with back pain: - Understand the psychology of pain - Debunk the myths - Find the source of your pain - Manage your pain – including all the emotions and anxiety that go with it - Master exercises and stretches - Identify and solve the social factors - Get lasting relief

Book Short Summary:

Inspiration, practices, and meditations to empower us in the face of planetary suffering: “True wisdom for tough times.” —John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America Deepening global crises surround us, causing many to fall prey to denial and despair.

These concepts, exercises, and meditations have proven to work across generations, religions, ethnicities and races.” —Rabbi Mordechai Liebling, Director of Social Justice Organizing, Reconstructionist Rabbinical College

Book Short Summary:

As the oak tree is summarized in the acorn, so nature is summarized in the human brain. They express a model. Looking at this small acorn though, no one can foresee the majestic oak tree it might become. Of course, with only its genetic code it will not develop. In the same way, humans are called to become what our ancestors and even we cannot foresee. But in order to develop all our potentialities some conditions must be met. We surround this acorn with nutrients, water, earth, and light, allowing it to be part of a living whole. For humans, this living whole is nature and society. Alas, at this time both have become deficient. The model is not allowed to freely unfold. This model was intuitively grasped by all great traditions. It led psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung to find in Taoism “principles so vast that they can be applied to the entire humanity”. With the rise of modern science though, this vision vanished. However, brain research results agree with the model so science is now on the brink of rediscovering it. In Love them back to Life, her second book, Ariane Page takes us on a discovery journey through this model expressed by the human brain as she focuses on love. Love is the tool used by this model, the LIFE (Law Inherent to the Five Elements), to eventually lead us to coherence between our physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual realities. In that holism, we will truly feel alive, happy, and loved.

Book Short Summary:

This book is an information-based literature that unwinds what we were taught to deem healthy. The medical system has displayed many untruths to society, which has only made us more sick and reliant on medicinal drugs to combat our issues. This book unravels many dogmatic systems that have been placed in society for the main reason of making more money for the pharmaceutical industry working against us, not for us. This book was written because one man (Steven) refused to allow these so-called truths to go unnoticed. The book is intended to provide a platform for people to stand on and believe in the power of nature and not a manufacturing system.

It’s kismet ... their journey back to love begins with a stumble and a save. Karen Mullings isn’t in the market for love when she relocates from the States to England.

His gentle, quiet spirit, his intelli-gence, his romantic nature, not to mention the heat that grows between them, break down the walls she has erected around herself. A widower of four years, Peter doesn’t expect that an acci-dental encounter in an Amsterdam hotel will introduce him to the wom-an who will reawaken his heart. But from the moment Karen bumps into him, Peter is hooked. Over the next few months, he finds ways to keep her close while he opens his heart to love again.

Book Short Summary:

I must be the indecision king. Sometimes the toughest decisions to me are made completely easy by someone else’s gentle touch. In this case, it was my dental hygienist who led me down the path of becoming a complete intellect again, after an almost full recovery from an ill-ness known as viral encephalitis, which is an injury to the brain, that may be fatal. I wanted to blame myself for every negative decision, but after an eight-year struggle in which my life had nearly been ended by encephalitis and the traumatic brain injury it caused, I wonder “Why me?”. It is really almost too hard to explain unless you have had to live it day in and day out.

Book Short Summary:

Finalist for the PEN/E. O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award “A call to action that underscores a common goal: to change the world from the ground up.”—Dan Barber, author of The Third Plate For centuries, agricultural practices have eroded the soil that farming depends on, stripping it of the organic matter vital to its productivity. Now conventional agriculture is threatening disaster for the world’s growing population. In Growing a Revolution, geologist David R. Montgomery travels the world, meeting farmers at the forefront of an agricultural movement to restore soil health. From Kansas to Ghana, he sees why adopting the three tenets of conservation agriculture—ditching the plow, planting cover crops, and growing a diversity of crops—is the solution. When farmers restore fertility to the land, this helps feed the world, cool the planet, reduce pollution, and return profitability to family farms.

Book Short Summary:

Lindsay took to marriage like a starlet to stilettos, but her husband had a deeper love for his business. Left alone after his death, Lindsay must find out who she is when there isn't a party to plan or another person's life to be organized. Can she find her way Back to Life? Lindsay realized when she married Ron, a man seventeen years her senior, that the odds were he'd see heaven before her, but she never expected to be a widow at thirty-five. She knows there's too much of life remaining for her to just sit around in mourning, but she can't seem to kick-start the rest of her life. Then unexpected help arrives...when Ron's first wife, Jane, shows up at Lindsay's front door. The executor of their late husband's estate, Jane is everything Lindsay's not: strong, stubborn, independent...and a lot older. There are other surprises as well, including Ron Jr. (whom Jane insists is not "really" Ron's son). But against all odds, a most unlikely friendship begins to develop—as each woman discovers how to own up to her past mistakes and to reevaluate what is really important. Told in the alternating voices of Jane and Lindsay, and featuring the return of many of the unforgettable characters introduced in The Trophy Wives Club, Back to Life is a lighthearted, relatable read about where to turn when life goes in a direction you never planned.

Book Short Summary:

The intimate, life-affirming journey of recovery and rehabilitation from a major stroke, written by one of morning television's most beloved personalities Mark McEwen was at the top of his game and enjoying life when he suffered a stroke. After fifteen years on The Early Show, he had moved to Orlando to anchor the local news and spend more time with his family. While traveling, he experienced symptoms that led him to a hospital, where he was misdiagnosed with the flu. Two days later, on an airplane flight just hours before he finally collapsed, flight attendants and airport staff dismissed his slurred speech and heavy sweating. Misinformation not only delayed his treatment, but it also nearly cost him his life. Now, in a candid and moving memoir, America's beloved morning-show weatherman recalls his harrowing journey of rehabilitation from a massive stroke. After the Stroke traces his recovery in the aftermath of temporarily losing some of his greatest gifts- his talent as a public speaker, and his warm, witty exuberance-while his wife worked valiantly to care for their children as well as her seriously ill husband. Sharing an ultimately triumphant story, McEwen emerges as one of our most dynamic new crusaders for stroke victims and their families.

The New York Times bestseller that's "heaven in hardcover" (New Orleans Times-Picayune) for Saints fans. In the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, no symbol of disaster was more potent than New Orleans' Superdome: it became a horrific shelter of last resort where the utterly desperate rode out the storm. Four years later, in that very stadium, the New Orleans Saints won the NFC championship and earned their first-ever trip to the Super Bowl, where they defeated the favored Indianapolis Colts 31-17. This is the inspirational true story of a city recovering from disaster and a team with a history of heartbreak, as seen through the eyes of the coach who would help elevate them both to long- forgotten greatness.

Book Short Summary:

A vibrant portrait of four college friends—Iris Murdoch, Philippa Foot, Elizabeth Anscombe, and Mary Midgley—who formed a new philosophical tradition while Oxford's men were away fighting World War II. The history of European philosophy is usually constructed from the work of men. In Metaphysical Animals, a pioneering group biography, Clare Mac Cumhaill and Rachael Wiseman offer a compelling alternative. In the mid-twentieth century Elizabeth Anscombe, Mary Midgley, Philippa Foot, and Iris Murdoch were philosophy students at Oxford when most male undergraduates and many tutors were conscripted away to fight in the Second World War. Together, these young women, all friends, developed a philosophy that could respond to the war’s darkest revelations. Neither the great Enlightenment thinkers of the past, the logical innovators of the early twentieth century, or the new Existentialist philosophy trickling across the Channel, could make sense of this new human reality of limitless depravity and destructive power, the women felt. Their answer was to bring philosophy back to life. We are metaphysical animals, they realized, creatures that can question their very being. Who am I? What is freedom? What is human goodness? The answers we give, they believed, shape what we will become. Written with expertise and flair, Metaphysical Animals is a lively portrait of women who shared ideas, but also apartments, clothes and even lovers. Mac Cumhaill and Wiseman show how from the disorder and despair of the war, four brilliant friends created a way of ethical thinking that is there for us today.

Book Short Summary:

By relating one man’s amazing tale of triumph over death on multiple occasions, this book brings a fresh perspective to near death experience literature. David Bennett, once a brash young commercial diver whose personal philosophy was “cut your way through life to survive,” was caught in a violent storm off the California coast one night where he drowned. While technically “dead,” he met beings of light, relived his life, and peeked into his future, resulting in a complete paradigm shift for him. Later, he discovered he had stage IV lung and bone cancer—so advanced that his spine collapsed. Miraculously, he survived once again, and this second close call taught him even more about living, loving, and how to find purpose in his life. Voyage of Purpose brings readers right into the heart of the near-death experience, including the sensations of dying, being surrounded by the light, and meeting the Soul Family. Part memoir and part guide for achieving spiritual growth, this book shows how to integrate the most traumatic of incidents into one’s spiritual path in order to live a more meaningful life.

In July 2009, former Celtic and Wales soccer star John Hartson was diagnosed with testicular cancer, which had also spread to his lungs and brain. But before his treatment even began, John came to the brink of death after contracting pneumonia, ceasing to breathe and undergoing emergency brain surgery. Against all the odds, he pulled through, and in Please Don't Go he documents his incredible fight for life. Profoundly moving, John's own story is interwoven with the poignant recollections of his pregnant wife, Sarah, as well as with extracts from his sister Victoria's personal diary.

John's truly inspirational account of how he has managed to overcome a very aggressive form of cancer will offer hope and courage to others affected by the disease. It is a touching and ultimately uplifting insight into the bravery of the popular football hero, who has fought back to full health in the face of adversity.

Book Short Summary:

In the twenty-first century, because of climate change and other human activities, many animal species have become extinct, and many others are at risk of extinction. Once they are gone, we cannot bring them back—or can we? With techniques such as cloning, scientists want to reverse extinction and return lost species to the wild. Some scientists want to create clones of recently extinct animals, while others want to make new hybrid animals. Many people are opposed to de-extinction. Some critics say that the work diverts attention from efforts to save species that are endangered. Others say that de-extinction amounts to scientists "playing God." Explore the pros and cons of de-extinction and the cutting-edge science that makes it possible.

The “poignant account of one woman’s struggle for health and faith—and the tireless devotion of family” in the face of a devastating illness (Peter DeHaan, PhD). Sally Stap was living a happy life with a successful career, juggling the usual concerns about job, daughters, and everyday obligations. But her world was shattered when she was diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma—a benign but large brain tumor that would require a major invasive operation to remove. Smiling Again is a story of perseverance and appreciating the beauty of life in spite of pain. Writing with a poignant blend of honesty, dry humor, faith, and inquisitiveness, Sally recounts the shock of diagnosis, the long and painful process of recovery, her eventual retirement due to disability, and ultimately the contentment she found in accepting a new life journey. No matter what trials you may face, Sally’s experience teaches us that even when the worst happens, God is still present and visible—sometimes in unexpected ways. Your future self may be different from who you were before, but those changes can lead you in new and rewarding directions.

Book Short Summary:

For a man who grew up fighting to survive, there is nothing much that can really change his way of looking at the world. Dominick was an underground fighter. It wasn’t really his choice, but he was good at it. For an arena where the fights are always to death, corpses coming to life are not really welcome. But that’s what is happening in the whole world. When he escaped he realized that not only did he have nowhere to go to, there was nowhere to run from his old way of life. With dead coming to life, his way of life is what keeps him alive in the brutality of this apocalyptic world, where monsters roam freely, and when they die, they as well rise again.

Book Short Summary:

No Looking Back was brought to life early one Sunday morning in Tonkawa, Oklahoma, where the author’s Ted and Linda Riddle lived. Ted Sat straight up in bed and said, “I know how I died.” That startled Linda, who was asleep next to him. His story flowed in such a way, it brought tears and laughter to her. She grabbed a yellow tablet and pencil and began writing. He did not slow down, so she could catch up. Soon she found a tape recorder and began recording this saga. Linda knew that this was not a dream. The tone of his voice was different and even the dialogue was strange, as Ted continued well into the morning. Later, when they both realized that this “gift”, had to be published, Ted asked Linda to “add the sunsets and the eagles flying.” She went to libraries as they traveled, even to Alaska twice, with their work and researched for facts for the book. She took pictures of locations where the story took place and drew illustrations. Names of their family members and friends were added, as the story developed. The story begins during the Civil War, when Thomas Summers and his brother John, join the Union Army. As Ted continues with his tale, he even knows the name of his wife, children, places and events. He knows how he died, so that is the first chapter in the book. The journey takes Tom and the reader through many life-threatening adventures, at every turn. Based on facts from Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma Territory, Texas, Kansas and Colorado, and a timeline of early western history, you feel that you are living each moment. There has never been a time or place like the early American West. Freedom was the quest of all who sought her.

Book Short Summary:

Dr. Tucker, in a follow-up to his book Life Before Life, explores American cases of young children who report memories of previous lives in the New York Times bestseller, Return to Life. A first-person account of Jim Tucker's experiences with a number of extraordinary children with memories of past lives, Return to Life focuses mostly on American cases, presenting each family's story and describing his investigation. His goal is to determine what happened—what the child has said, how the parents have reacted, whether the child's statements match the life of a particular deceased person, and whether the child could have learned such information through normal means. Tucker has found cases that provide persuasive evidence that some children do, in fact, possess memories of previous lives. Among others, readers will meet a boy who describes a previous life on a small island. When Tucker takes him to that island, he finds that some details eerily match the boy's statements and some do not. Another boy points to a photograph from the 1930s and says he used to be one of the men in it. Once the laborious efforts to identify that man are successful, many of the child's numerous memories are found to match the details of his life. Soon after his second birthday, a third boy begins expressing memories of being a World War II pilot who is eventually identified. Thought-provoking and captivating, Return to Life urges its readers to think about life and death and reincarnation, and reflect about their own consciousness and spirituality.

Book Short Summary:

Thinking About America? India sends more of its students, employees, spouses, and brains abroad than most other countries in the world. Many of them go to America; and when they arrive, they are in for the culture shock of their lives. From having to immediately modify their name (Annapoorna becomes Anna) to knowing how to field curious Americans’ questions ("Do you speak Indian?"), it can be an overwhelming transition. In Ketchup & Curry: Your Guide to Life and Success in America, Vivek Sreedhar helps bridge the gap between Indian and American culture in a humorous and informative manner through the eye popping adventures of Subramaniam Venkataraman Parthasarathy (Subbu) in America. Starting his American life being called a FOB (fresh off the boat), and having his name butchered, Subbu is thrown into the dollar-to-rupee conversion and Bollywood to Hollywood drama. From then on begins the long and emotional journey of Subbu's transformation as he goes from Slumdog to Swag and learns the ABCDs of being an IBCD (Indian Born Confused Desi). He even starts dating for real (not shaadi.com). When Subbu returns to India, the culture shock comes back to haunt him, keeping his heart torn between his American girlfriend, Angela, and his childhood friend Sulokshana. He struggles to find where his heart really lies: within the bustling streets of Detroit or the humid, homely galis of southern India. What does he do...choose Angela or Sulokshana...America or India? "A hilarious guide to life and success in America. Must read for anyone aspiring to go abroad!" - Vikram Krishnan, Partner at Oliver Wyman "Finally! A book that screams the story of every Indian who came to America to live the American Dream!"- Vijayata Sanghvi, Statistical Analyst at PRA International "Very informative and funny, this book is a great read for Indians moving to the States." - Dr. Anupama Shekar, Ph.D., University of Wisconsin-Madison "This book should appeal to both first time travelers looking for perspectives on life in America as well as fully integrated immigrants who will look back at their life and smile at how far they have come."- Shavin Shahnawaz, Manager at Deloitte Consulting.
