<p><b></b><br /><b>In <i>Being Mortal</i>, bestselling author Atul Gawande tackles the hardest challenge of his profession: how medicine can not only improve life but also the process of its ending</b><br /><b></b><br />Medicine has triumphed in modern times, transforming birth, injury, and infectious disease from harrowing to manageable. But in the inevitable condition of aging and death, the goals of medicine seem too frequently to run counter to the interest of the human spirit. Nursing homes, preoccupied with safety, pin patients into railed beds and wheelchairs. Hospitals isolate the dying, checking for vital signs long after the goals of cure have become moot. Doctors, committed to extending life, continue to carry out devastating procedures that in the end extend suffering.</p><p>Gawande, a practicing surgeon, addresses his profession's ultimate limitation, arguing that quality of life is the desired goal for patients and families. Gawande offers examples of freer, more socially fulfilling models for assisting the infirm and dependent elderly, and he explores the varieties of hospice care to demonstrate that a person's last weeks or months may be rich and dignified.<br />Full of eye-opening research and riveting storytelling, <i>Being Mortal</i> asserts that medicine can comfort and enhance our experience even to the end, providing not only a good life but also a good end.</p>

<p>Back pain manifests itself in many different forms, attacks without warning, and damages its victims’ physical and emotional health. Everyone suggests a different cure for the effects of a weak core: surgeons want to cut, chiropractors want to adjust, physical therapists want to perform physical therapy.  In <em>The End of Back Pain,</em> neurosurgeon Patrick Roth, M.D., reveals that, more often than not, back pain is caused by a set of underdeveloped core muscles that control the stability and alignment of the spine that are not being used. He details a specialized exercise program to strengthen and develop those muscles to relieve, control, and even prevent chronic pain.</p><p><em>The End of Back Pain</em> helps patients view the body from a totally different perspective, and inspires readers to push their bodies in order to cure its maladies. After years of treating back pain, Dr. Roth has seen time and time again that a back that is not used to its full capacity is a back that is unhealthy. When we don’t use our backs, we are not utilizing the core set of muscles designed to help us stay strong, increase stamina, and look our very best.</p>

Widely recognized as one of the most powerful healing methods that have ever been developed, bioenergy healing is relatively easy to learn. Csongor’s unique writing—as if you were listening to him live at one of his seminars—makes this comprehensive book on energy healing a light, yet very informative read. If you are a fast reader, you may learn to heal in only one day. By the end of the book, you will become a healer for a lifetime.<BR><BR>Csongor Daniel was one of the first officially recognized bioenergy healers in the former Yugoslavia, trained by the legendary Zdenko Domancic. While his teacher has healed more than a million people, Csongor has no such ambitions. Instead, he would like to teach more than a million of you how to become healers yourselves. <I>Bioenergy Healing</I> will teach you how to feel and see the energy fields of the body and how to manipulate the energy in order to induce healing. QR codes throughout the book enable readers to see the techniques demonstrated in brief videos.<BR><BR>Who needs <I>Bioenergy Healing</I>? Anyone who has ever dabbled in healing, but is still looking for the right method; people who read most books on energy healing, but are still puzzled by complicated approaches and explanations; individuals who want to learn energy healing, but are too busy to take months or years of courses; health professionals who want to add a new effective modality to their practices; parents and children who want to help their friends and family members reduce or eliminate pain and heal without drugs. In other words: everyone wanting to help others to heal.

<p><b>"I believe that the discoveries in this book can change our understanding of how we store emotional experiences and in so doing, change our lives. <i>The Emotion Code</i> has already changed many lives around the world, and it is my hope that millions more will be led to use this simple tool to heal themselves and their loved ones."—Tony Robbins</b></p><p>In this newly revised and expanded edition of <i>The Emotion Code</i>, renowned holistic physician and lecturer Dr. Bradley Nelson skillfully lays bare the inner workings of the subconscious mind. He reveals how emotionally-charged events from your past can still be haunting you in the form of "trapped emotions"—emotional energies that literally inhabit your body. These trapped emotions can fester in your life and body, creating pain, malfunction, and eventual disease. They can also extract a heavy mental and emotional toll on you, impacting how you think, the choices that you make, and the level of success and abundance you are able to achieve. Perhaps most damaging of all, trapped emotional energies can gather around your heart, cutting off your ability to give and receive love. </p><p> <i>The Emotion Code</i> is a powerful and simple way to rid yourself of this unseen baggage. Dr. Nelson’s method gives you the tools to identify and release the trapped emotions in your life, eliminating your “emotional baggage,” and opening your heart and body to the positive energies of the world. Filled with real-world examples from many years of clinical practice, <i>The Emotion Code</i> is a distinct and authoritative work that has become a classic on self-healing.</p>

<div><b>One of America's top doctors reveals how AI will empower physicians and revolutionize patient care </b></div> <div><br /></div> <div>Medicine has become inhuman, to disastrous effect. The doctor-patient relationship--the heart of medicine--is broken: doctors are too distracted and overwhelmed to truly connect with their patients, and medical errors and misdiagnoses abound. In <i>Deep Medicine</i>, leading physician Eric Topol reveals how artificial intelligence can help. AI has the potential to transform everything doctors do, from notetaking and medical scans to diagnosis and treatment, greatly cutting down the cost of medicine and reducing human mortality. By freeing physicians from the tasks that interfere with human connection, AI will create space for the real healing that takes place between a doctor who can listen and a patient who needs to be heard.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Innovative, provocative, and hopeful, <i>Deep Medicine</i> shows us how the awesome power of AI can make medicine better, for all the humans involved.</div>

<b><b>“A profound exploration of what it means for all of us to live—and to die—with dignity and purpose.” —<i>People</i></b><br /> <b> </b><br /> <b>“Visceral and lyrical.” <i>—The Atlantic</i></b><br /></b><br />As the American born daughter of immigrants, Dr. Sunita Puri knew from a young age that the gulf between her parents' experiences and her own was impossible to bridge, save for two elements: medicine and spirituality. Between days spent waiting for her mother, an anesthesiologist, to exit the OR, and evenings spent in conversation with her parents about their faith, Puri witnessed the tension between medicine's impulse to preserve life at all costs and a spiritual embrace of life's temporality. And it was that tension that eventually drew Puri, a passionate but unsatisfied medical student, to palliative medicine--a new specialty attempting to translate the border between medical intervention and quality-of-life care.<br /><br />Interweaving evocative stories of Puri's family and the patients she cares for, <i>That Good Night </i>is a stunning meditation on impermanence and the role of medicine in helping us to live and die well, arming readers with information that will transform how we communicate with our doctors about what matters most to us.

<p>     Written by a practicing emergency physician, The White Coat Investor is a high-yield manual that specifically deals with the financial issues facing medical students, residents, physicians, dentists, and similar high-income professionals. Doctors are highly-educated and extensively trained at making difficult diagnoses and performing life saving procedures. However, they receive little to no training in business, personal finance, investing, insurance, taxes, estate planning, and asset protection.</p><br /><p>     This book fills in the gaps and will teach you to use your high income to escape from your student loans, provide for your family, build wealth, and stop getting ripped off by unscrupulous financial professionals. Straight talk and clear explanations allow the book to be easily digested by a novice to the subject matter yet the book also contains advanced concepts specific to physicians you won’t find in other financial books.</p><br /><h2><strong>This book will teach you how to:</strong></h2><br /><p> </p><br /><ul><br /><li>Graduate from medical school with as little debt as possible</li><br /><li>Escape from student loans within two to five years of residency graduation</li><br /><li>Purchase the right types and amounts of insurance</li><br /><li>Decide when to buy a house and how much to spend on it</li><br /><li>Learn to invest in a sensible, low-cost and effective manner with or without the assistance of an advisor</li><br /><li>Avoid investments which are designed to be sold, not bought</li><br /><li>Select advisors who give great service and advice at a fair price</li><br /><li>Become a millionaire within five to ten years of residency graduation</li><br /><li>Use a “Backdoor Roth IRA” and “Stealth IRA” to boost your retirement funds and decrease your taxes</li><br /><li>Protect your hard-won assets from professional and personal lawsuits</li><br /><li>Avoid estate taxes, avoid probate, and ensure your children and your money go where you want when you die</li><br /><li>Minimize your tax burden, keeping more of your hard-earned money</li><br /><li>Decide between an employee job and an independent contractor job</li><br /><li>Choose between sole proprietorship, Limited Liability Company, S Corporation, and C Corporation</li><br /></ul><br /><h3><strong>Take a look at the first pages of the book by clicking on the Look Inside feature</strong></h3><br /><p> </p><br /><h2><strong>Praise For The White Coat Investor</strong></h2><br /><p> </p><br /><p>“Much of my financial planning practice is helping doctors to correct mistakes that reading this book would have avoided in the first place.” – <strong>Allan S.
