<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • A <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> NOTABLE BOOK • </b><i>America’s Bitter Pill</i> is Steven Brill’s acclaimed book on how the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, was written, how it is being implemented, and, most important, how it is changing—and failing to change—the rampant abuses in the healthcare industry. It’s a fly-on-the-wall account of the titanic fight to pass a 961-page law aimed at fixing America’s largest, most dysfunctional industry. It’s a penetrating chronicle of how the profiteering that Brill first identified in his trailblazing<i> Time</i> magazine cover story continues, despite Obamacare. And it is the first complete, inside account of how President Obama persevered to push through the law, but then failed to deal with the staff incompetence and turf wars that crippled its implementation. <br />  <br /> But by chance <i>America’s Bitter Pill</i> ends up being much more—because as Brill was completing this book, he had to undergo urgent open-heart surgery. Thus, this also becomes the story of how one patient who thinks he knows everything about healthcare “policy” rethinks it from a hospital gurney—and combines that insight with his brilliant reporting. The result: a surprising new vision of how we can fix American healthcare so that it stops draining the bank accounts of our families and our businesses, and the federal treasury.<br /> <b> </b><br /> <b>Praise for <i>America’s Bitter Pill</i></b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> “A tour de force . . . a comprehensive and suitably furious guide to the political landscape of American healthcare . . . persuasive, shocking.”<b>—<i>The New York Times</i> </b><br />  <br /> “An energetic, picaresque, narrative explanation of much of what has happened in the last seven years of health policy . . . [Brill] has pulled off something extraordinary.”<b><i>—The New York Times Book Review</i></b><br />  <br /> “A thunderous indictment of what Brill refers to as the ‘toxicity of our profiteer-dominated healthcare system.’ ”<b>—<i>Los Angeles Times</i></b><br /> <i> </i><br /> “A sweeping and spirited new book [that] chronicles the surprisingly juicy tale of reform.”<b>—<i>The Daily Beast</i></b><br /> <b> </b><br /> “One of the most important books of our time.”<b>—Walter Isaacson</b><br />  <br /> “Superb . . . Brill has achieved the seemingly impossible—written an exciting book about the American health system.”<b>—<i>The</i> <i>New York Review of Books</i></b><br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

<div><b>How earnest hippies, frightened parents, suffering patients, and other ordinary Americans went to war over marijuana</b></div><div><br /></div><div>In the last five years, eight states have legalized recreational marijuana. To many, continued progress seems certain. But pot was on a similar trajectory forty years ago, only to encounter a fierce backlash. In <i>Grass Roots</i>, historian Emily Dufton tells the remarkable story of marijuana's crooked path from acceptance to demonization and back again, and of the thousands of grassroots activists who made changing marijuana laws their life's work.</div><div><br /></div><div>During the 1970s, pro-pot campaigners with roots in the counterculture secured the drug's decriminalization in a dozen states. Soon, though, concerned parents began to mobilize; finding a champion in Nancy Reagan, they transformed pot into a national scourge and helped to pave the way for an aggressive war on drugs. Chastened marijuana advocates retooled their message, promoting pot as a medical necessity and eventually declaring legalization a matter of racial justice. For the moment, these activists are succeeding--but marijuana's history suggests how swiftly another counterrevolution could unfold.</div>

<b>Summary:</b><br />Unhappiness, says bestselling author Harriet Lerner, is fueled by three key emotions: anxiety, fear, and shame. They are the uninvited guests in our lives. When tragedy or hardship hits, they may become our constant companions.<br />Anxiety can wash over us like a tidal wave or operate as a silent thrum under the surface of our daily lives. With stories that are sometimes hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking, Lerner takes us from "fear lite" to the most difficult lessons the universe sends us. We learn:<ul><li>how a man was "cured in a day" of the fear of rejection -- and what we can learn from his story<br /> </li><li>how the author overcame her dread of public speaking when her worst fears were realized<br /> </li><li>how to deal with the fear of not being good enough, and with the shame of feeling essentially flawed and inadequate<br /> </li><li>how to stay calm and clear in an anxious, crazy workplace<br /> </li><li>how to manage fear and despair when life sends a crash course in illness, vulnerability, and loss<br /> </li><li>how "positive thinking" helps -- and harms<br /> </li><li>how to be our best and bravest selves, even when we are terrified and have internalized the shaming messages of others</li></ul>No one signs up for anxiety, fear, and shame, but we can’t avoid them either. As we learn to respond to these three key emotions in new ways, we can live more fully in the present and move into the future with courage, clarity, humor, and hope. <i>Fear and Other Uninvited Guests</i> shows us how.<br /><br /><b>Review</b><br />“Powerful mind-medicine.” (Martha Beck, O, The Oprah Magazine)<br /><br />“This spirit-lifting book leaves the reader braver, wiser and laughing. Lerner’s advice is the best you will find.” (Edward Hallowell, M.D., author of Driven to Distraction)<br /><br />“A flat-out life-changing book.” (Betty Carter, M.S.W. Director Emerita, Family Institute of Westchester, New York)<br /><br /><b>About the Author</b><br />Harriet Lerner was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, the second of two daughters. Her parents, Archie and Rose Goldhor, were both children of Russian-Jewish immigrant parents. They were high school graduates who wanted their daughters to "be someone" at a time when women were only supposed to "find someone."<br /><br />"Achievement was next to Godliness for my sister, Susan, and me." Harriet notes. "My father would talk about ‘My daughters the doctors’ while we were still in our strollers." <br /><br />Growing up, Harriet and Susan spent weekends at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, the Brooklyn Public Library and the Brooklyn Museum. "These places were free and just a subway token away."<br /><br />Lerner's mother had an unwavering belief in her daughters and strong principles about how to raise children. In Harriet's words:<br /><br />"Even during the hardest economic times my mother, Rose, made sure that Susan and I had four things that she believed were essential to our later success:<br /><br />1. Good shoes (I don't mean stylish)<br />2. A firm, quality mattress<br />3. A top pediatrician (none other than Doctor Benjamin Spock);<br />4. A therapist<br /><br />Unlike other parents of the day who considered therapy to be a last resort of the mentally ill, my mother thought it was a learning experience. She put me in therapy before I was three, after obtaining a health insurance policy that provided weekly therapy sessions for one dollar. I later joked that my mother would send me to a therapist if I came home from school with anything less than a B plus. I was exaggerating, but only a little bit. "<br /><br />Her mother's belief in therapy undoubtedly contributed to Lerner's career choice. She decided to become a clinical psycho [...]

<p>The world is a better place than it used to be. People are healthier, wealthier, and live longer. Yet the escapes from destitution by so many has left gaping inequalities between people and nations. In <i>The Great Escape</i>, Angus Deaton--one of the foremost experts on economic development and on poverty--tells the remarkable story of how, beginning 250 years ago, some parts of the world experienced sustained progress, opening up gaps and setting the stage for today's disproportionately unequal world. Deaton takes an in-depth look at the historical and ongoing patterns behind the health and wealth of nations, and addresses what needs to be done to help those left behind.</p><br /> <p>Deaton describes vast innovations and wrenching setbacks: the successes of antibiotics, pest control, vaccinations, and clean water on the one hand, and disastrous famines and the HIV/AIDS epidemic on the other. He examines the United States, a nation that has prospered but is today experiencing slower growth and increasing inequality. He also considers how economic growth in India and China has improved the lives of more than a billion people. Deaton argues that international aid has been ineffective and even harmful. He suggests alternative efforts--including reforming incentives to drug companies and lifting trade restrictions--that will allow the developing world to bring about its own Great Escape.</p><br /> <p>Demonstrating how changes in health and living standards have transformed our lives, <i>The Great Escape</i> is a powerful guide to addressing the well-being of all nations.</p>
