One is the Bishop of London, the elderly Archbishop's favored but controversial successor. The identity of the other seems lost in time. Sebastian amasses a list of suspects that range from some of the Prince Regent's closest cronies to William Franklin, embittered son of famous American patriot Ben Franklin-and finds himself confronting the well-guarded secrets of his own family's history. Now each step he takes toward the killer brings him closer to a devastating truth that could ultimately force him to question who-and what-he really is.

Product : Home Team: Coaching the Saints and New Orleans Back to Life
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The inspirational true story of how one man led a football team-and a city- to triumph in Super Bowl XLIV. In the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, the New Orleans Superdome became a national symbol of misery and hopelessness, where the truly desperate rode out the storm. Four years later, in that very stadium, the New Orleans Saints won the NFC championship and earned their first-ever trip to the Super Bowl. Two weeks later, the Saints soundly defeated the heavily favored Indianapolis Colts 31-17 in what would become the most-watched television event in history. This is the inspirational story of a city recovering from disaster and a team with a history of heartbreak, seen through the eyes of the coach who taught them both how to win.

Description : Lizzie Hayes, a member of the San Francisco elite, is a seemingly docile, middle-aged spinster praised for her volunteer work with the Ladies Relief and Protection SocietyH Home, or "The Brown Ark." All she needs is the spark that will liberate her from the ruling conventions. When the wealthy and well-connected, but ill-reputed Mary Ellen Pleasant shows up at the Brown Ark, Lizzie is drawn to her. It is the beautiful, but mysterious Mary Ellen, an outcast among the women of the elite because of her notorious past and her involvement in voodoo, who will eventually hold the key to unlocking Lizzie's rebellious nature. Loosely based in historical fact, Sister Noon is a wryly funny, playfully mysterious, and totally subversive novel from this "fine writer" whose "language dazzles" (San Francisco Chronicle).

Between the Lines: Not-So-Tall Tales from Ray "Scampy" Scapinello's Four Decades in the NHL

Product : Between the Lines: Not-So-Tall Tales from Ray "Scampy" Scapinello's Four Decades in the NHL
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : An insider's look at life on the lines To hockey fans, Ray Scapinello's name and face are as recognizable as any star player or coach in the NHL. Scampy, as he is affectionately known has had a long and storied career as a linesman in the NHL. His 5-foot-7 frame and 163 pounds belie his ability and endurance on the ice. When Ray retired in 2004 after 33 years in the NHL, he had officiated in 2,500 regular season matches (never missing a game), 426 playoff games, and an astounding twenty Stanley Cup final series. His untouchable statistics make him a lock to enter the Hockey Hall of Fame as an official, but even they do not do justice to the respect he has earned from officials, players, coaches, and fans alike. On and off the ice, Scampy is considered one of hockey's great personalities, a consummate professional, a chronic practical joker, and a true ambassador of the sport. "Between the Lines" gives a rare glimpse inside the world of hockey from an unusual perspective -- through the eyes of one of the game's greatest and best-loved officials. Scampy shares his tales of life both on and off the ice as an official, an inside look at what those players and coaches are really like, what they really say and do, and what the game looks like between the lines. Full of fun stories, perspective on how the game has changed and evolved, and stories and interviews about Scampy from players, coaches, and other officials, "Between the Lines" is a captivating memoir of a truly unique life in hockey.

Desperate Hours: The Epic Rescue of the Andrea Doria

Product : Desperate Hours: The Epic Rescue of the Andrea Doria
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "A stupendous feat of reportage." -Ron Powers, cowriter of Flags of Our Fathers Praise for Desperate Hours "Goldstein's book is packed with detail. . . . This description of the Doria's sinking is especially moving." -The New York Times "A stupendous feat of reportage. Goldstein has virtually put us into lifeboats and sent us hurtling into the North Atlantic on the night of July 25, 1956." -Ron Powers, cowriter, Flags of Our Fathers, and author of Dangerous Water and Tom and Huck Don't Live Here Anymore On an extraordinary summer's night in 1956, in a fog off Nantucket, the world-renowned ocean liner Andrea Doria collided with the Swedish liner Stockholm and, eleven hours later, tragically sank. But in that brief time the Doria became, after the Titanic, the most storied vessel of the century, as nearly 1,700 people were saved in an unforgettable rescue punctuated by countless acts of heroism amid confusion, terror, and even cowardice. In the tradition of Walter Lord's A Night To Remember, Desperate Hours re-creates the ill-fated voyage, from the passengers' parting waves at Genoa, to their last evening highball in the Doria's lavish lounge, to the unbelievable realization that catastrophe was imminent. Richard Goldstein draws from dozens of interviews, court documents, memoirs, and reports that relate never-before-told stories. He also presents technical findings that shed light on the blame for the disaster. The result is a definitive history of a fateful day, a legendary liner, and a deadly shipwreck now considered by scuba divers to be the Mount Everest of the deep.

Mind's Past

Product : Mind's Past
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Why does the human brain insist on interpreting the world and constructing a narrative? In this ground-breaking work, Michael S. Gazzaniga, one of the world's foremost cognitive neuroscientists, shows how our mind and brain accomplish the amazing feat of constructing our past--a process clearly fraught with errors of perception, memory, and judgment. By showing that the specific systems built into our brain do their work automatically and largely outside of our conscious awareness, Gazzaniga calls into question our everyday notions of self and reality. The implications of his ideas reach deeply into the nature of perception and memory, the profundity of human instinct, and the ways we construct who we are and how we fit into the world around us. Over the past thirty years, the mind sciences have developed a picture not only of how our brains are built but also of what they were built to do. The emerging picture is wonderfully clear and pointed, underlining William James's notion that humans have far more instincts than other animals. Every baby is born with circuits that compute information enabling it to function in the physical world. Even what helps us to establish our understanding of social relations may have grown out of perceptual laws delivered to an infant's brain. Indeed, the ability to transmit culture--an act that is only part of the human repertoire--may stem from our many automatic and unique perceptual-motor processes that give rise to mental capacities such as belief and culture. Gazzaniga explains how the mind interprets data the brain has already processed, making "us" the last to know. He shows how what "we" see is frequently an illusion and not at all what our brain is perceiving. False memories become a part of our experience; autobiography is fiction. In exploring how the brain enables the mind, Gazzaniga points us toward one of the greatest mysteries of human evolution: how we become who we are.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Seton Lloyd's lively account of Turkey's early history is for the ever-increasing number of people visiting the ancient sites of this fabled land. Written by an archaeologist who has spent much of his life in the Near East, the book is not a conventional "guide" to the antiquities of Anatolia, nor is it a textbook. It is instead Lloyd's attempt to share his profound interest in an antique land, its inhabitants, and the surviving monuments that link the present to the past. Lloyd traces the many different cultures that have been a part of Turkey from prehistoric times to the Christian era. He recounts the exploits of the Hittite kings, the confrontation of Croesus and the Persian king Cyrus, the conquests of Alexander the Great, and Mithridates' epic resistance against Rome. Archaeological landmarks discussed include the discovery of the Alaca Huyuk tombs, the attempts to establish the location of Troy, and the opening of the Tomb of Midas. Lloyd shows how each successive culture has left its mark on an astonishing variety of sites, from the shrines of catal Huyuk to the temples of Ephesus and the churches founded by St. Paul.

Product : The Mischief of the Mistletoe: A Pink Carnation Christmas
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : 'Tis the season to get Pink Lauren Willig's beloved Pink Carnation series gets into the holiday spirit with this irresistible Regency Christmas caper. Arabella Dempsey's dear friend Jane Austen warned her against teaching. But Miss Climpson's Select Seminary for Young Ladies seems the perfect place for Arabella to claim her independence while keeping an eye on her younger sisters nearby. Just before Christmas, she accepts a position at the quiet girls' school in Bath, expecting to face nothing more exciting than conducting the annual Christmas recital. She hardly imagines coming face to face with French aristocrats and international spies... Reginald "Turnip"Fitzhugh-often mistaken for the elusive spy known as the Pink Carnation- has blundered into danger before. But when he blunders into Miss Arabella Dempsey, it never occurs to him that she might be trouble. When Turnip and Arabella stumble upon a beautifully wrapped Christmas pudding with a cryptic message written in French, "Meet me at Farley Castle," the unlikely vehicle for intrigue launches the pair on a Yuletide adventure that ranges from the Austens'modest drawing room to the awe-inspiring estate of the Dukes of Dovedale, where the Dowager Duchess is hosting the most anticipated event of the year: an elaborate twelve-day Christmas celebration. Will they find poinsettias or peril, dancing or danger? Is it possible that the fate of the British Empire rests in Arabella's and Turnip's hands, in the form of a festive Christmas pudding?

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Time to read a book. Time to wash dishes. Time to do this or that. You say things like this every day, all the time. But there was a time when time itself was undefined--no one knew the difference between a minute, an hour, or a day. Then people started creating tools to measure time. First they used the big stuff around them--the sun, the moon, water. Soon after, using the knowledge they got from their natural time-telling tools, people began to build clocks--huge clocks unlike the ones we use today. They also used their knowledge of the sun and moon to create calendars made up of months and years. Now, centuries later, we have clocks all around us. We can easily figure out how long a month is. But it took many years of tinkering and inventing to perfect the art of telling time. You could take a few moments now to read all about time. If you have a minute, that is.

The Pagoda

Product : The Pagoda
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this brilliantly original and exotic novel, a young writer brings to life the mysterious world of an immigrant who flees China in the 1890s to seek a better life in Jamaica. The setting is a poor village outside a sugar plantation. The immigrant is Lowe, about 50, the owner of a small shop and guardian of a secret that is gradually revealed. Writing to a long-estranged daughter, Lowe tells her what has happened during their years apart -- a tale of exile from China, of separation from family, of shipboard adventures, of an unwanted pregnancy and the arrangement that was made to avoid a scandal -- and the three decades of living as man and wife with a light-skinned black woman named Sylvie. This is the story of the destruction of a world: the burning of Lowe's shop; and of the creation of a dream: the building of the Pagoda, a school where Chinese workers can learn about their history and become a part of Jamaican life. Artful and extraordinary, a mesmerizing tale of love, longing, and hidden identity.

Description : Losing Stinks Even losing a toy or a game feels rotten. But when a friend moves away, a parent leaves home during a divorce, or a loved one dies, sometimes it seems as if the hurt will never go away. So how is it possible that loss can be an important opportunity? Rabbi Marc Gellman and Monsignor Thomas Hartman -- also known as television and radio's God Squad -- draw on years of counseling experience to suggest universal truths that will help those of any religion to live and grow through losses large and small. With surprising good humor, they show how people have responded with courage and even heroism to the curveballs life has thrown them. They've also selected comforting readings from favorite prose and poetry, offering wise words, healing laughter, or time for quiet reflections.This heartening book reminds us of the many ways that we can keep hope alive when the going gets rough. With a remarkable balance of common sense and profound insight, two award-winning authors skillfully show how, in a most extraordinary way, our bumps and bruises make us whole.

Left Coast City

Product : Left Coast City
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : When Art Agnos campaigned for mayor of San Francisco in 1987, he articulated and defended the "left" isms-liberalism, environmentalism, and populism. He won. Seeing Agnos as a defender of slowgrowth vs. progrowth, the city's progressives had high hopes. But to their disappointment, in the wake of the passage of Proposition M-the most restrictive growth control legislation of any large U.S. city-Agnos supported waterfront development and proposals to build a new baseball stadium in China Basin and a large residential and business development in Mission Bay. In 1991 Agnos ran for reelection. He lost. Left Coast City provides insight into how San Francisco's progressive coalition developed between 1975 and 1991, what stresses emerged to cause splintering within the coalition, and how the coalition fell apart in the 1991 mayoral campaign. Focusing on San Francisco's turbulent political history, non-conformist traditions, and ethnic and cultural diversity, political scientist Richard DeLeon analyzes the successes and failures of the progressive movement as it topples the business-dominated progrowth regime, imposes stringent controls on growth and development, and achieves political control of city hall. Although the movement has achieved national recognition as a possible vanguard of social and political change in this country, DeLeon argues that a new progressive regime has not yet emerged to replace the defunct progrowth regime. Having helped to create chaos out of order, progressive leaders now face the task of creating order out of chaos.

In Search of Klingsor

Product : In Search of Klingsor
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In his international bestseller "In Search of Klingsor," Jorge Volpi takes us from the Institute of Advanced Study to the heart of Hitler's Germany, where the line between truth and lies is all but dissolved.Mysterious, seductive, and immediately engrossing, this startlingly accomplished thriller explores the nexus between science and human nature and how they shaped the world in the aftermath of World War II. In 1940, Francis Bacon, a brilliant young American physicist, is invited to join the prestigious institute at Princeton, the world's foremost physics research facility. But a series of personal indiscretions forces him to accept a different, more sinister, assignment: uncover "Klingsor," Hitler's top adviser on the scientific work in the Third Reich, including the race to create the first atomic bomb. Bacon's efforts to expose the truth lead him to Gustav Links, a survivor of the attempted coup against Hitler. With Link's help, he continues researching postwar Germany -- in an era when a secret was really a secret and a lie wasn't necessarily a sin -- and falls into a complicated relationship with an alluring woman. His search for Klingsor, an ominous and seemingly omnicient adversary, is part mystery, part psychological puzzle, part witty intellectual game. "In Search of Klingsor" places real people in speculative historical fiction, combining the ingenuity of a scientific investigation with the suspense of a great espionage novel.

Safety in Numbers: Nurse-To-Patient Ratios and the Future of Health Care

Product : Safety in Numbers: Nurse-To-Patient Ratios and the Future of Health Care
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Legally mandated nurse-to-patient ratios are one of the most controversial topics in health care today. Ratio advocates believe that minimum staffing levels are essential for quality care, better working conditions, and higher rates of RN recruitment and retention that would alleviate the current global nursing shortage. Opponents claim that ratios will unfairly burden hospital budgets, while reducing management flexibility in addressing patient needs. Safety in Numbers is the first book to examine the arguments for and against ratios. Utilizing survey data, interviews, and other original research, Suzanne Gordon, John Buchanan, and Tanya Bretherton weigh the cost, benefits, and effectiveness of ratios in California and the state of Victoria in Australia, the two places where RN staffing levels have been mandated the longest. They show how hospital cost cutting and layoffs in the 1990s created larger workloads and deteriorating conditions for both nurses and their patients-leading nursing organizations to embrace staffing level regulation. The authors provide an in-depth account of the difficult but ultimately successful campaigns waged by nurses and their allies to win mandated ratios. Safety in Numbers then reports on how nurses, hospital administrators, and health care policymakers handled ratio implementation. With at least fourteen states in the United States and several other countries now considering staffing level regulation, this balanced assessment of the impact of ratios on patient outcomes and RN job performance and satisfaction could not be timelier. The authors' history and analysis of the nurse-to-patient ratios debate will be welcomed as an invaluable guide for patient advocates, nurses, health care managers, public officials, and anyone else concerned about the quality of patient care in the United States and the world.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : When I was fourteen I happened to meet the celebrated drama critic, Jack Kroll. We were in his New York office at Newsweek when he asked me what I wanted to do with my life. I told him I'd like to write plays, if I could. "Would you now?" He handed me a Grove Press edition of Pinter: Plays One and said, "You'd better have this then". In 1995 my first play was put on at the National Theatre One night, I was knocking around the lighting box just before curtain up, "Anyone in?" The Deputy Stage Manager, said, "Harold Pinter". "Yeah, yeah". "No, really". A few days later I received a little note from him, congratulating me on the play. I kept the note in my breast pocket for a month. In May of 1999 we had lunch. Harold wore a black shirt and drank white wine. In fact, we drank a fair amount of white wine together. I'd put it about, via our mutual agent, Judy Daish, that I'd be pretty keen to direct The Caretaker and word came back that Harold would not be averse. So we discussed the play in an adult fashion, director to play-wright. I wondered when someone was going to tap me on the shoulder and wake me from this fantasy. A month or two later I called Harold to discuss some bit of production business. He came to the phone, full of beans. "Hallo, Harold. You sound well". He told me that he was "well" and that he was writing a new play. He spoke like a man who had never written a play before, thrilled and delighted that the words were flowing. I was stabbing around in the dark with a new one. Harold asked after it delicately; he treated me like a fellow writer, as if all writers are equals, all prone to the same problems. When I directed my second play, Closer, onBroadway, Jack Kroll came to interview me for Newsweek magazine. We chatted away in the lobby of the Algonquin Hotel where I was staying. I told him he'd given me a book some twenty years ago and that it had been more than useful. He was delighted. He spoke at some length and with great admiration for and about Harold's work. Jack Kroll died this summer. It was an honour to have met him. The book he had given me was upstairs in my hotel room. Why would I ever part with it? It's here on my desk, as I write.

Description : For a bored, young princess of Xanth, there's nothing more exciting than a Quest. Especially when all you do is sit around Castle Roogna. But when Ivy uses the Heaven Cent, it takes her not to the top of Mount Rushmost, where the winged monsters gather, not to the sea where the merfolk swim--but to Mundania, a world much like out own (that is, boring). It is here that she meets a young college student so dull that he doesn't even believe in magic, or princesses, or Xanth Does he have a lot to learn. The thrilling climax to the trilogy started in "Vale of the Vole" and continued in "Heaven Cent,"

Government Failure Versus Market Failure: Microeconomics Policy Research and Government Performance

Product : Government Failure Versus Market Failure: Microeconomics Policy Research and Government Performance
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : When should government intervene in market activity and when is it best to let market forces take their natural course? How does the existing empirical evidence about government performance guide our answers to these questions? In this clear, concise book, Clifford Winston offers his innovative analysisshaped by thirty years of evidenceto assess the efficacy of government interventions. Markets fail when it is possible to make one person better off without making someone else worse off, thus indicating inefficiency. Governments fail when an intervention is unwarranted because markets are performing well or when the intervention fails to correct a market problem efficiently. Winston concludes from existing research that the cost of government failure may actually be considerably greater than the cost of market failure: My search of the evidence is not limited to policy failures. I will report success stories, but few of them emerged from my search. The prevalence of market failure is due to a lack of conviction in favor of markets, the inflexibility of intervening government agencies, and political forces that enable certain interest groups to benefit at the expense of society as a whole. Winston suggests that government policy can be improved by making greater use of market-oriented solutions that have already produced benefits in certain situations.

Product : Dirty Diplomacy: The Rough-And-Tumble Adventures of a Scotch-Drinking, Skirt-Chasing, Dictator-Busting and Thoroughly Unrepentant
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : With all the pace and drama of a political thriller, "Dirty Diplomacy" is a riveting account of a young, fast-living ambassador's battle against a ruthless dictatorship in Central Asia and the craven political expediency in Washington and London that eventually cost him his job. Craig Murray is no ordinary diplomat. He enjoys a drink or three, and if it's in the company of a pretty girl, so much the better. Murray's scant regard for the rules of the game also extends to his job. When, in the first few weeks of his posting to the little-known Central Asian Republic of Uzbekistan, he comes across photographs of a political dissident who has literally been boiled to death, he ignores diplomatic nicety and calls it for what it is: torture of the cruelest sort. Murray soon discovers that this is no one-off incident: fierce abuse of those opposing the government is rife. It's not long before he is tearing around the country in his embassy Land Rover, shaking off Uzbek police tails and crashing through roadblocks to meet with dissidents and expose their persecutors. He even confronts the despotic president, Islom Karimov, face-to-face. But Murray's bosses in London's Foreign Office, ever mindful of their senior partners in Washington, don't want to upset the applecart. Karimov is an ally in the newly announced Global War on Terror. His country is host to a big American air base. The last thing they need is a battling young diplomat stirring things up. In Craig Murray, that's exactly what they've got...

My Old True Love

Product : My Old True Love
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Sheila Kay Adams brings us a novel inspired by the ballads of the English, Scottish, and Irish. These long, sad stories of heartbreak and betrayal, violence and love, have been sung for generations by the descendents of those who settled the Appalachian mountains in the 1700s. As they raised their children, they taught them first to sing, for the songs told the children everything they needed to know about life. So it was with the Stanton family living in Marshall, North Carolina, during the 1800s. Even Larkin Stanton, just a baby when his parents die and he's taken in by his cousin Arty, starts humming before he starts talking. As he grows up, he hungrily learns every song he can, and goes head-to-head with his cousin Hackley for the best voice, and, of course, the best attentions of the women. It's not long before the two boys find themselves pursuing the affections of the same lovely girl, Mary, who eventually chooses Hackley for her husband. But, just as in the most tragic ballads, there is no stowing away of emotions. And when Hackley leaves his wife under his cousin's care in the midst of the Civil War, Larkin finds himself drawn back to the woman who's held his heart for years. What he does about that love defies all his learning of family and loyalty and reminds us that those mournful ballads didn't just come from the imagination, but from the imperfections of the heart.

Description : With stories in "The New Yorker"'s debut fiction issue and in "The Best American Short Stories, 2000," and as the winner of a Whiting Writers' Award and a Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers' Award, ZZ Packer has already achieved what most writers only dream about-all prior to publication of her first book. Now, in "Drinking Coffee Elsewhere," her impressive range and talent are abundantly evident. Packer dazzles with her command of language-surprising and delighting us with unexpected turns and indelible images, as she takes us into the lives of characters on the periphery, unsure of where they belong. With penetrating insight that belies her youth-she was only nineteen years old when "Seventeen" magazine printed her first published story-Packer takes us to a Girl Scout camp, where a troupe of black girls are confronted with a group of white girls, whose defining feature turns out to be not their race but their disabilities; to the Million Man March on Washington, where a young man must decide where his allegiance to his father lies; to Japan, where an international group of drifters find themselves starving, unable to find work. "Drinking Coffee Elsewhere" is a striking debut-fresh, versatile, and captivating. It introduces us to an arresting and unforgettable new American voice.

She, her son Davey, and her prizewinning poodles are more than willing to take little Dox in as a boarder. But the more Melanie discovers about the pup's background, the messier the case gets. It seems the wiener dog is part of a divorced couple's emotional tug-of-war. And if tiptoeing through the minefield of a broken marriage isn't nerve-wracking enough, there's also Melanie's new stalker--or stalkers--to deal with. Someone who's gotten into her house at night; someone who's stolen her wallet, and let her dogs loose in the neighborhood. Someone who's dognapped Dox. As suspects keep coming out of the woodwork--and the situation grows more desperate and dangerous--it's beginning to look like Melanie's life may be the next thing up for auction.

Radical Walking Tours of New York City

Product : Radical Walking Tours of New York City
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Traditional walking tours of New York City lionize the wealthy and war heroes by emphasizing what they've left behind. Rarely seen are the emblems of those buried in their wake -- the people who fought the establishment, pushing for a better world. In Radical Walking Tours of New York City, political activist Bruce Kayton leads readers to monuments of these lesser-known heroes. Through Kayton's lens, the history of New York's neighborhoods is the history of class struggles, civil rights battles, and labor movements, and the 12 provocative, educational tours presented here provide for many an eye-opening afternoon. Readers visit Emma Goldman's home in the East Village, Langston Hughes's house in Harlem, the site of Mabel Dodge's salon, the apartment where John Reed wrote Ten Days That Shook the World, the site of Margaret Sanger's first birth control clinic, Black Panther headquarters, and many more little-known points of interest. From Battery Park to Harlem, from the Lower East Side to Central Park, Kayton's tours provide a new perspective on the history of both New York City and American radicalism. This edition includes new stops, post-September 11 changes, and a new foreword by Pete Seeger. "Those interested in the history of radicalism in the city will be rewarded by the depth of Kayton's knowledge." -- New York magazine

Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry:

Product : Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry:
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : An established resource through three editions, the "Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry" has been thoroughly revised and tightened up to make it an even more effective text. The authors, long respected as teachers, clinicians, and researchers, have trimmed the content of the previous edition to make the book more practical and easier to use. Throughout, they continue to interweave recent advances in psychiatry with the core knowledge that students new to the field need-from grasping the neurobiology and genetics of mental illness to understanding the DSM system to assessing patients. Hailed as a "proven winner" and a "classic text," this user-friendly volume is written in an accessible, conversational style for introductory psychiatry courses or psychiatry clerkships-or as an authoritative introduction to abnormal psychology for students of psychology, social work, or nursing. It introduces students to a wide range of psychiatric diagnoses-covering epidemiology, clinical features, and treatment-while providing additional coverage of special topics such as violence and suicide, legal issues that affect psychiatry, childhood disorders, sleep disorders, and both psychosocial and somatic therapies. As a teaching resource, it boasts several key features: tools that enhance learning, such as compelling case vignettes and "clinical pearls"-even more numerous in this edition-plus self-assessment questions a detailed introduction to the interview process, including specific questions that the clinician might ask patients a critical review of DSM-IV-TR covering all disorders, arranged by diagnostic class eleven chapters devoted to specific conditions, from cognitive disorders to personality disorders to impulse-control disorders, with handy tables of DSM-IV diagnostic criteria, practical assessment tips, and other key points a single-chapter introduction to the basics of child psychiatry, covering mental retardation, autism, ADHD, and more up-to-date information on drugs-including newer antidepressants-and guidelines for electroconvulsive therapy a glossary of key psychiatric terms, new to this edition Useful as either an introductory text or a primary reference, the "Textbook" encourages students to appreciate the art and science of contemporary psychiatry and to enjoy working with psychiatric patients. And as a concise summary of the field, it also serves as a reliable and an eminently readable refresher for busy practitioners.

Bobby Darin: A Life

Product : Bobby Darin: A Life
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Bobby Darin fit more into his 37 years alive than most people fit into longer lifetimes. By the age of 22, Darin was a pop idol with chart-toppers "Splish Splash" and "Dream Lovers." A year later, he reinvented himself as a Sinatra-style crooner with "Mack the Knife" and "Beyond the Sea," winning a Grammy Award, the adulation of millions, a Hollywood contract, and a starlet wife, Sandra Dee. His sense of urgency drove him throughout his life and if it seemed as though Darin was trying to do it all, he was: a rheumatic heart doomed him to an early death. Bobby Darin examines the entertainer's entire life, from his boyhood in the Bronx, where he was born Walden Robert Cassotto, to his rise as a musical sensation, his rocky marriage to Sandra Dee, and the evolution of his career from pop idol to swingin' crooner to folk singer. Also detailed is the shocking secret Darin learned later in life--that his "sister" Nina was actually his mother, and that Polly, the woman he thought was his mother, was actually his grandmother--and how he spent the last five years of his life consumed by bitterness and anger over the betrayal. Interviews with such close friends and relatives as Steve Blauner, Darin's best friend and business manager, Gary Walden, Darin's half-brother, Dick Clark, Wayne Newton, Neil Sedaka, Tony Orlando, and many others will give the book a special intimacy and provide a deeply revealing portrait of the man.

An Apple a Day: The Myths, Misconceptions, and Truths about the Foods We Eat

Product : An Apple a Day: The Myths, Misconceptions, and Truths about the Foods We Eat
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Eat salmon. It's full of good omega-3 fats. Don't eat salmon. It's full of PCBs and mercury. Eat more veggies. They're full of good antioxidants. Don't eat more veggies. The pesticides will give you cancer. Forget your dinner jacket and put on your lab coat: you have to be a nutritional scientist these days before you sit down to eat--which is why we need Dr. Joe Schwarcz, the expert in connecting chemistry to everyday life. In An Apple a Day, he's taken his thorough knowledge of food chemistry, applied it to today's top food fears, trends, and questions, and leavened it with his trademark lighthearted approach. The result is both an entertaining revelation of the miracles of science happening in our bodies every time we bite into a morsel of food, and a telling exploration of the myths, claims, and misconceptions surrounding our obsession with diets, nutrition, and weight. Looking first at how food affects our health, Dr. Joe examines what's in tomatoes, soy, and broccoli that can keep us healthy and how the hundreds of compounds in a single food react when they hit our bodies. Then he investigates how we manipulate our food supply, delving into the science of food additives and what benefits we might realize from adding bacteria to certain foods. He clears up the confusion about contaminants, examining everything from pesticide residues, remnants of antibiotics, the dreaded trans fats, and chemicals that may leach from cookware. And he takes a studied look at the science of calories and weighs in on popular diets.

The Way We Live Now

Product : The Way We Live Now
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "The Way We Live Now," by Anthony Trollope, is part of the "Barnes & Noble Classics"" "series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of "Barnes & Noble Classics": New introductions commissioned from today's top writers and scholars Biographies of the authors Chronologies of contemporary historical, biographical, and cultural events Footnotes and endnotes Selective discussions of imitations, parodies, poems, books, plays, paintings, operas, statuary, and films inspired by the work Comments by other famous authors Study questions to challenge the reader's viewpoints and expectations Bibliographies for further reading Indices & Glossaries, when appropriateAll editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. "Barnes & Noble Classics "pulls together a constellation of influences-biographical, historical, and literary-to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. Ruthless greed, relentless self-promotion, corporate swindles and scandals on a grand scale-indeed this sounds like "the way we live now." Though Anthony Trollope's title actually refers to 1870s England, his scathing satire of a money-mad culture cuts close to the contemporary bone. At its center stands Augustus Melmotte, a crooked financier whose enormous schemes ensnare an array of avaricious aristocrats, politicians, and "important people." Among them are Lady Carbury, who earns the family bread by churning out fatuous potboilers (as did Trollope's mother) andher spendthrift, ne'er-do-well son, Felix, who sets his sights on Melmotte's dangerously beautiful daughter, Marie. Meanwhile, Felix's sister, Hetta, falls for Melmotte's partner, Paul, who's encumbered with an American fiancee, herself a widow who may have shot her husband. As the frauds expand and the romantic entanglements grow ever more complex, Trollope revels in the antics of his characters while pillorying the corruption of their morally bankrupt society. Nathaniel Hawthorne said it best, praising Trollope for putting England "under a glass case, with all its inhabitants going about their daily business, and not suspecting that they were made a show of." Karen Odden received her M.A. from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor and her Ph.D. in English literature from New York University. Her dissertation on the medical, legal, and literary discourses that surrounded Victorian railway disasters discusses works by Trollope and his contemporaries, Wilkie Collins, Charles Dickens, M. E. Braddon, and Mrs. Henry Wood. Chapters and articles have appeared in books of literary criticism, anthologies, the "Journal of Victorian Culture," and "Studies in the Novel"; she has

Description : 'To Baghdad and Beyond' is the story of a young evangelical couple who followed the conviction of their faith into a war zone and discovered an alternative to the violence of empires and the complicity of quietism in the "third way" of Jesus's beloved community. Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove writes of his journey from a rural Southern Baptist church to Iraq in a time of war to a Christian community of hospitality in an urban neighborhood. Excited by ways that Christian hope is taking concrete form, Wilson-Hartgrove describes a new monastic movement that is witnessing to a world at war that another way is possible.
