You are about<br />to be taken on a wild ride that careens back and forth between the fun-house<br />and the horrifying scene of the authors’ death as he lies broken, bleeding and<br />paralyzed…in the middle of nowhere…in a wrecked car…during an ice storm…<br />alone!

<p>The doctor’s work is one of honor, integrity, and knowledge. It is one of benevolence and the desire to help others so that they may live in wellness and in health. But the doctor’s work is also one of sacrifice. In the process of seeing patients, running a successful practice, and taking emergency calls all day and night, one may find many things left on the side: family, self-care, peace of mind, and happiness. Perhaps you are one such physician who has reached the breaking point: Do you leave your passion for clinical practice behind or do you give up your life for those of others?</p><p>In <em>Make Your Move: A Physician’s Guide to Clinical and Non-Clinical Alternatives to Medical Practice</em>, renowned orthopedic surgeon Emily Woolcock shows us that the choice does not have to be one or the other. By learning and pursuing one or more of the supplementary career options available to physicians, you can not only reduce your workload, but also increase your income and expand your area of experience. Capitalize on your passions and pursue your purpose by using your medical mastery to the fullest!</p>

Advances in assisted reproductive technology are producing a new world whose boundaries and implications have yet to be fully explored and understood. New advances are announced and hit the headlines with dizzying regularity, triggering the hopes and aspirations of some, and the fears of others. What is possible? What are the implications? What should be permissible? Who should decide?Medically assisted reproductive techniques were developed to treat sterility and infertility. However, in parallel this has created a demand for applications outside the fields for which these technologies were originally intended. This book explores the issues that surround medically assisted reproduction by addressing them from the perspective of four key areas: the mystery of procreation and the enigma of origin and where we come from; the question of difference and alterity in procreation (be it the breaking down of the notion that one comes from two in heterologous procreation to the aspirations for same-sex procreation, or the blurring of chronology and generations through cryoconservation); the place of destiny, including how to think about individual destinies in an age of increasingly accessible gene sequencing paired with a growing link between procreation and prediction; and an exploration of how clinicians and professionals can respond to the subjective experiences of those who resort to medically assisted reproduction, and the singularity of each person's response to the difficult and complex questions it raises.

When you were a child, you had a multi-colored vision of the world; it was magical and full of possibilities, and you imagined how your life would be when you grew up. That vision was bright … it glowed in your heart, illuminating you from within as you tapped into your true essence. You were unhindered, your cells were cleanly transmitting, and you were in direct communion with God. When you were in nature, you felt connected; feeling the sun on your face and the energy going in and out of your body through your skin was an experience of heaven on earth. You loved to run around naked. You felt good in your body. When you were in that state of connected bliss, there was an idea you had about what you could bring to this planet, the gifts you have that no one else has in quite the way you have them. You knew that you would be successful in bringing the light inside you to the world, and you were ready to take it on.<br />This is your natural state.<br />This book is an informational guide to understanding your body in a way that is intuitively connected and powerful for transformation.

Whittaker Chambers is one of the most controversial figures in modern American history a former Communist spy who left the party, testified against Alger Hiss before the House Un-American Activities Committee, and wrote a classic autobiography, Witness. Dismissed by some as a crank, reviled by others as a traitor, Chambers still looms as a Dostoevskian figure over three decades after his death in 1961. A man of profound pessimism, rare vision, and remarkable literary talents, his continuing importance was attested to when Ronald Reagan posthumously awarded him the Medal of Freedom in 1984. Ghosts on the Roof, originally published in 1989, brings together more than fifty short stories, essays, articles, and reviews that originally appeared in Time, Life, National Review, Commonweal, The American Mercury, and the New Masses. Included are essays on Karl Marx, Reinhold Niebuhr, James Joyce, Franz Kafka, George Santayana, Dame Rebecca West, Ayn Rand, and Greta Garbo. These show Chambers at his best, as a peerless historian of ideas.

<p><b>“Scott Parazynski’s drive, curiosity, inventiveness, and great humor shine through the pages of <i>The Sky Below</i> and will certainly inspire future generations to pursue their dreams with every fiber in their being.” —John Glenn, NASA astronaut</b></p><p>An epic memoir from a man whose life is defined by exploration and innovation, <i>The Sky Below</i> re-creates some of the most unforgettable adventures of our time. From dramatic, high-risk spacewalks to author Scott Parazynski’s death-defying quest to summit Mount Everest—his body ravaged by a career in space—readers will experience the life of an elite athlete, physician, and explorer.</p><p>This intimate, compelling account offers a rare portrait of space exploration from the inside. A global nomad raised in the shadow of NASA’s Apollo missions, Parazynski never lost sight of his childhood dream to one day don a spacesuit and float outside the airlock. With deep passion, unbridled creativity, resilience, humility, and self-deprecation, Parazynski chases his dream of the ultimate adventure experience, again and again and again. In an era that transitioned from moon shots to the Space Shuttle, space station, and Mars research, Parazynski flies with John Glenn, tests jet packs, trains in Russia to become a cosmonaut, and flies five missions to outer space (including seven spacewalks) in his seventeen-year NASA career.</p><p>An unparalleled, visceral opportunity to understand what it’s like to train for—and deploy to—a home in zero gravity, <i>The Sky Below</i> also portrays an astronaut’s engagement with the challenges of his life on Earth, including raising a beautiful autistic daughter and finding true love.</p>
