<b>Chances are, you or someone you know is affected by a tongue-tie. </b><br /> Common, yet little understood, tongue-ties can lead to a myriad of problems, including difficulty when nursing, speaking or eating. In the most crucial and formative parts of children’s lives, tongue-ties have a significant effect on their well-being. Many parents and professionals alike want to know what can be done, and how best to treat these patients and families.<br /> <b> And now, there are answers. </b><br /><br /> <i>Tongue-Tied: How a Tiny String Under the Tongue Impacts Nursing, Feeding, Speech, and More</i> is an exhaustive and informative guide to this misunderstood affliction. Along with a team of medical specialists, author Dr. Richard Baxter demystifies tongue-ties and spells out how this condition can be treated comprehensively, safely and comfortably.<br /> Starting with a broad history of tongue-ties, this invaluable guide covers 21st-century assessment techniques and treatment options available for tethered oral tissues. Various accounts of patient challenges and victories are prominently featured as well. With the proper diagnosis and treatment, tethered oral tissues can be released with minimal discomfort, resulting in improvements during nursing, speaking, and feeding, while also reducing the incidence of dental issues, headaches, and even neck pain for children through adults.<br /> Aimed at both parents and professionals, <i>Tongue-Tied</i>encourages those affected while providing reassuring and valuable information. Dr. Baxter and his qualified team have pooled their expertise to make a difference in the lives of people.<br /><br />Having examined and treated newborns to adults with oral restrictions since the early 1980s, I have never seen such a complete and thorough study of the subject. Dr. Baxter has covered it all! His own personal experience was a great motivator to make this book a must-read for parents, physicians, dentists, lactation consultants, and therapists of all kinds.<br />Greg Notestine, DDS, AAACD<br />Founding Member and Past Director, International Affiliation of Tongue-Tie Professionals (IATP)<br /><br />There can be no greater feeling than to see that I have been able to stimulate individuals like Dr. Baxter to add to the body of knowledge needed to educate the healthcare community as well as parents on the need to have tethered oral tissues evaluated for the many potential problems related to the tongue, which is not just a muscle, but a part of our body that can affect many of the body’s systems, infant growth and development, speech and much more. Congratulations on writing this excellent book. <br />Larry Kotlow, DDS<br />Pioneer and Expert on Tethered Oral Tissues<br /><br />Tongue-Tied is a revolutionary resource for parents, patients, and professionals alike. Such a detailed, comprehensive, and research-based resource has not existed until now! As a speech-language pathologist and certified orofacial myologist, this will be on the top shelf of my library and will be a resource I recommend to my colleagues, patients, and students. Thank you for filling this gap! <br />Autumn R. Henning, MS, CCC-SLP, COM<br />Founder, TOTS Training <br /><br />How refreshing to have a resource for parents and professionals based on clinical expertise and current research! Tongue-Tied is a straight-forward, no-nonsense approach to the influence of tethered oral tissues on both speech and feeding development. <br />Melanie Potock, MA, CCC-SLP <br />Author of Adventures in Veggieland & co-author of Raising a Healthy Happy Eater<br /><br />As a surgical specialist and clinical researcher in the area of tethered oral tissues for close to 20 years, I have been waiting for a comprehensive text of this subject. Tongue-Tied is both a welcome addition and long overdue. It should serve as a concise guide for professionals as well as families seeking further knowledge on this topic. Thank you, Dr. Baxter, for moving our specialty forward! <br />Scott A. Siegel, MD, DDS, FACS, FICS, FAAP<br />Oral Surgeon

<b>THE #1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER</b><BR> <b>A <i>New York Times</i> Notable Book<BR> A <i>Washington Post</i> and <i>Seattle Times</i> Best Book of the Year</b><BR> <BR>From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of <i>The Emperor of All Maladies</i>—a fascinating history of the gene and “a magisterial account of how human minds have laboriously, ingeniously picked apart what makes us tick” (<i>Elle</i>).<BR><BR>“Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee dazzled readers with his Pulitzer Prize-winning <i>The Emperor of All Maladies</i> in 2010. That achievement was evidently just a warm-up for his virtuoso performance in <i>The Gene: An Intimate History</i>, in which he braids science, history, and memoir into an epic with all the range and biblical thunder of <i>Paradise Lost</i>” (<i>The New York Times</i>). In this biography Mukherjee brings to life the quest to understand human heredity and its surprising influence on our lives, personalities, identities, fates, and choices.<BR> <BR>“Mukherjee expresses abstract intellectual ideas through emotional stories…[and] swaddles his medical rigor with rhapsodic tenderness, surprising vulnerability, and occasional flashes of pure poetry” (<i>The Washington Post</i>). Throughout, the story of Mukherjee’s own family—with its tragic and bewildering history of mental illness—reminds us of the questions that hang over our ability to translate the science of genetics from the laboratory to the real world. In riveting and dramatic prose, he describes the centuries of research and experimentation—from Aristotle and Pythagoras to Mendel and Darwin, from Boveri and Morgan to Crick, Watson and Franklin, all the way through the revolutionary twenty-first century innovators who mapped the human genome.<BR> <BR>“A fascinating and often sobering history of how humans came to understand the roles of genes in making us who we are—and what our manipulation of those genes might mean for our future” (<i>Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel</i>), <i>The Gene</i> is the revelatory and magisterial history of a scientific idea coming to life, the most crucial science of our time, intimately explained by a master. “<i>The Gene</i> is a book we all should read” (<i>USA TODAY</i>).

<p>"[Mr. Quammen] is not just among our best science writers but among our best writers, period." —Dwight Garner, <em>New York Times</em></p><br /><p>The next big human pandemic—the next disease cataclysm, perhaps on the scale of AIDS or the 1918 influenza—is likely to be caused by a new virus coming to humans from wildlife. Experts call such an event “spillover” and they warn us to brace ourselves. David Quammen has tracked this subject from the jungles of Central Africa, the rooftops of Bangladesh, and the caves of southern China to the laboratories where researchers work in space suits to study lethal viruses. He illuminates the dynamics of Ebola, SARS, bird flu, Lyme disease, and other emerging threats and tells the story of AIDS and its origins as it has never before been told. <em>Spillover</em> reads like a mystery tale, full of mayhem and clues and questions. When the Next Big One arrives, what will it look like? From which innocent host animal will it emerge? Will we be ready?</p>

<b>From the host of <i>Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown</i> and bestselling author of <i>Kitchen Confidential</i> comes the true, thrilling story of Mary Mallon, otherwise known as the infamous Typhoid Mary.</b><br /><br />This is a tale of pursuit through the kitchens of New York City at the turn of the century. By the late nineteenth century, it seemed that New York City had put an end to the outbreaks of typhoid fever that had so frequently decimated the city's population. That is until 1904, when the disease broke out in a household in Oyster Bay, Long Island. Authorities suspected the family cook, Mary Mallon, of being a carrier. But before she could be tested, the woman, soon to be known as Typhoid Mary, had disappeared. Over the course of the next three years, Mary worked at several residences, spreading her pestilence as she went. In 1907, she was traced to a home on Park Avenue, and taken into custody. <br /><br />Institutionalized at Riverside Hospital for three years, she was released only when she promised never to work as a cook again. She promptly disappeared. For the next five years Mary worked in homes and institutions in and around New York, often under assumed names. In February 1915, a devastating outbreak of typhoid at the Sloane Hospital for Women was traced to her. She was finally apprehended and reinstitutionalized at Riverside Hospital, where she would remain for the rest of her life. <i>Typhoid Mary</i> is the story of her infamous life. <br /><br />Anthony Bourdain reveals the seedier side of the early 1900s, and writes with his renowned panache about life in the kitchen, uncovering the horrifying conditions that allowed the deadly spread of typhoid over a decade. <i>Typhoid Mary</i> is a true feast for history lovers and Bourdain lovers alike.
