<p><strong>A<em> New York Times</em>, <em>USA Today, Wall Street Journal</em>, and Amazon Charts Bestseller!<br /> Emma Watson's Our Shared Shelf Bookclub Selection - May/June 2018</strong></p><p>"<strong>the glowing ghosts of the radium girls haunt us still</strong>."—NPR Books </p><p><em>The incredible true story of the women who fought America’s Undark danger</em></p><p>The Curies’ newly discovered element of radium makes gleaming headlines across the nation as the fresh face of beauty, and wonder drug of the medical community. From body lotion to tonic water, the popular new element shines bright in the otherwise dark years of the First World War.</p><p>Meanwhile, hundreds of girls toil amidst the glowing dust of the radium-dial factories. The glittering chemical covers their bodies from head to toe; they light up the night like industrious fireflies. With such a coveted job, these “shining girls” are the luckiest alive — until they begin to fall mysteriously ill.</p><p>But the factories that once offered golden opportunities are now ignoring all claims of the gruesome side effects, and the women’s cries of corruption. And as the fatal poison of the radium takes hold, the brave shining girls find themselves embroiled in one of the biggest scandals of America’s early 20th century, and in a groundbreaking battle for workers’ rights that will echo for centuries to come. </p><p>Written with a sparkling voice and breakneck pace, <em>The Radium Girls</em> fully illuminates the inspiring young women exposed to the “wonder” substance of radium, and their awe-inspiring strength in the face of almost impossible circumstances. Their courage and tenacity led to life-changing regulations, research into nuclear bombing, and ultimately saved hundreds of thousands of lives...</p>

<p><strong>NATIONAL BESTSELLER </strong></p><p><strong>CNBC and Strategy + Business Best Business Book of 2017</strong></p><p><strong>"Steven and Jamie have done a wonderful job of balancing the promises, perils, and how-to prescriptions of engineering peak states such as 'flow.'" </strong><strong>—</strong><strong>Tim Ferriss, #1 <em>New York Times </em>best-selling author of <em>The 4-Hour Workweek</em></strong><p></p>It’s the biggest revolution you’ve never heard of, and it’s hiding in plain sight. Over the past decade, Silicon Valley executives like Eric Schmidt and Elon Musk, Special Operators like the Navy SEALs and the Green Berets, and maverick scientists like Sasha Shulgin and Amy Cuddy have turned everything we thought we knew about high performance upside down. Instead of grit, better habits, or 10,000 hours, these trailblazers have found a surprising short cut. They're harnessing rare and controversial states of consciousness to solve critical challenges and outperform the competition. <p></p><p><em>New York Times</em> bestselling author Steven Kotler and high performance expert Jamie Wheal spent four years investigating the leading edges of this revolution—from the home of SEAL Team Six to the Googleplex, the Burning Man festival, Richard Branson’s Necker Island, Red Bull’s training center, Nike’s innovation team, and the United Nations’ Headquarters. And what they learned was stunning: In their own ways, with differing languages, techniques, and applications, every one of these groups has been quietly seeking the same thing: the boost in information and inspiration that altered states provide. </p><p>Today, this revolution is spreading to the mainstream, fueling a <em>trillion</em> dollar underground economy and forcing us to rethink how we can all lead richer, more productive, more satisfying lives. Driven by four accelerating forces—psychology, neurobiology, technology and pharmacology—we are gaining access to and insights about some of the most contested and misunderstood terrain in history. Stealing Fire is a provocative examination of what’s actually possible; a guidebook for anyone who wants to radically upgrade their life.</p><p></p>

<em>The Keystone Approach </em> is based on a profound shift in our understanding of the causes of autoimmunity. A series of groundbreaking new clinical studies have found that the driving factor is often the immune system overreacting to certain gut bacteria. This in turn caused by a more permeable gut barrier, the overgrowth of pathogenic gut bacteria or yeasts, and the lack of beneficial immune-calming microbes. <br /><br />This innovative new book provides a systematic, evidence-based plan to address each of these elements, from the perspective of a writer who successfully treated her own debilitating psoriatic arthritis. This easy-to-follow plan, based on an in-depth analysis of more than 400 scientific studies, will likely help a wide variety of autoimmune conditions, but it is most specifically tailored to address the underlying causes of diseases in the spondyloarthropathy family, which includes psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, juvenile arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, uveitis, Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis. <br /><br />"It's rare to find an alternative health book so thoroughly backed by scientific studies, but The Keystone Approach is not only a specific, authoritative recommendation, but represents a satisfying intersection of traditional and alternative approaches to healing. It should be in any health collection where autoimmune diseases are of interest." –<em> Midwest Book Reviews</em> <br /><br />Rebecca Fett has “done an excellent job in distilling very complex microbiome science and presenting it in a clear and engaging fashion.” – Randy Longman, M.D. ,Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Weill Cornell Medicine.<br /><br />"The Keystone Approach is a must-read for anyone suffering from psoriasis, joint pain, or any of the host of inflammation related disorders. Rebecca Fett has developed an exhaustively researched but easy to follow protocol to heal the gut and reduce systemic inflammation. Her recommendations are easy to implement and could prove to be life changing." <br />- Robert Santos-Prowse, Ph.D., author of <em> The Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet</em> <br /><br />-“For readers who want to learn more about the way diet can change their quality of life, this manual is easy-to-understand, full of relevant data, and well-organized. A helpful and well-researched plan for improving gut health, reducing inflammation, and avoiding disease triggers.” –<em> Kirkus Reviews</em> <br /><br />

If you think the big retail pharmacy chains are concerned about your safety, think again. Today's pharmacists are struggling to keep patients safe while meeting the ever escalating demands of their employers. In her book "The Pharmacist is a Whore, How pharmacists lost control of their profession and why you should care", Kim Ankenbruck, a 34 year pharmacy veteran, points out the danger you face every time you get a prescription filled. While pharmacists are incredibly detail oriented and excellent multitaskers by nature, the current workplace is chaotic and stressful due to the increased demands of upper management, coupled with staff cuts and the promotion of non pharmacist personnel over the pharmacists. At the end of the book, Kim provides contact information and sample letters you can send to both government agencies and the executives of the various chain pharmacies. The letters bring up many of the issues experienced by patients, as well as holding the powers that be accountable for their part in these shortcomings and demanding that they clean up their act. This book is a call to action for pharmacists and patients to stand up and push for positive change in the healthcare system, as well as an informative behind the scenes look at the profession and business of pharmacy.

Whether you're studying for the NCLEX, NAPLEX, USMLE Step-1, PANCE, or just want to make sure to pass a class, Pharmacology is a subject you need to, but don't want to deal with. As a working parent of 5-year-old triplet daughters, I understand time management presents one of the greatest barriers to my pharmacology students' success. Many students feel that cold sense of overwhelm and information overload. This easy-to-read guide organizes pharmacology into manageable, logical steps you can fit in short pockets of time. The proven system helps you memorize medications quickly and form immediate connections. With mnemonics from students and instructors, you'll see how both sides approach learning. After you've finished the 200 Top Drugs in this book, reading pharmacology exam questions will seem like reading plain English. You'll have a new understanding of pharmacology to do better in class, clinical and your board exam. You'll feel the confidence you'd hoped for as a future health professional.

A complete guide (manual) to migraine prevention and treatment without taking any medicines. It is a self-help guide with full explanation about how to successfully abort and prevent all migraines. The book also provides a full explanation of the cause of migraines from a physiological, biological, and genetics perspective. This book is an extended edition of the "Fighting the Migraine Epidemic: How to Treat and Prevent Migraines without Medicines. An Insider's View" book published and now discontinued.<br /><br />The book is laid out in five parts:<br />Part I: migraineurs who read the 1st edition of the book comment and introduction<br />Part II: quick guide to get rid of an ongoing migraine<br />Part III: the heart of the book, describing the physiology and biology or migraines, who is susceptible to migraines and why. Also includes all prodrome types, all triggers, and detailed analysis on how triggers can be cancelled.<br />Part IV: a more complex explanation of migraine-cause specifically for doctors, scientists, and migraineurs more interested in the genetics and bio-physiology of migraines. It also contains a part titled “Drugs of Shame” describing the 30 most often prescribed medicines for migraine pain prevention, their side effects, and FDA warnings. <br />Part V: a huge citation list of over 800 citations of academic literature. Each academic article adds a little bit of information to complete the whole picture of migraines. <br /><br />In this book I pull together information from many fields of science and connect the dots to help the reader to conclude the same thing I did: migraine is preventable and completely treatable without the use of any medicines.
