READING: Winner of the PEN Ackerley Prize and the South Bank Sky Arts Award for Literature Shortlisted for the Costa Biography Award; Duff Cooper Prize; Wellcome Book Prize; Guardian First Book Award; and Slightly Foxed Best First Biography Prize Longlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction What is it like to be a brain surgeon? How does it feel to hold someone's life in your hands, to cut through the stuff that creates thought, feeling and reason? How do you live with the consequences when it all goes wrong? DO NO HARM offers an unforgettable insight into the highs and lows of a life dedicated to operating on the human brain, in all its exquisite complexity. With astonishing candour and compassion, Henry Marsh reveals the exhilarating drama of surgery, the chaos and confusion of a busy modern hospital, and above all the need for hope when faced with life's most agonising decisions.

READING: Bekentenissen van een hersenchirurg is een adembenemend eerlijk boek, waarin Henry Marsh terugblikt op onmogelijke dilemma’s en life changing beslissingen. Hij beleefde tijdens zijn lange loopbaan als hersenchirurg zowel opwindende hoogtepunten als verwoestende tegenslagen, maar zijn liefde voor de neurochirurgie bleef al die tijd onwankelbaar. Het vooruitzicht van zijn pensionering zette hem aan het denken: wat heeft hij eigenlijk geleerd over het leven door veertig jaar lang menselijke hersenen te behandelen? Marsh vertelt openhartig hoe hij het hoofd biedt aan de overweldigende last van de verantwoordelijkheid die soms op hem drukt wanneer hij tracht menselijk lijden te verlichten. Herinneringen ophalend onderzoekt hij de moeilijkheden van een vak dat meer gaat over kansen dan zekerheden, en overdenkt hij de gevolgen van beslissingen die vaak in een fractie van een seconde genomen moeten worden.

READING: Henry Marsh, een van de meest vooraanstaande Britse neurochirurgen, laat zien wat het betekent om voor God te spelen in kwesties van leven of dood. Hij gunt ons een zeldzame blik op het intense drama van de operatiekamer, de complexiteit van de hersenen en het botte instrument dat het mes van de chirurg daarbij vergeleken is. Dit boek gaat over de pijnlijke dilemmas rond elke hersenoperatie voor de patiënt, de familie en de chirurg. Allereerst niet schaden is ook een persoonlijk verslag van een ontdekkingstocht naar de feilbaarheid van de arts, de grenzen van de geneeskunde en de universele behoefte aan hoop als we geconfronteerd worden met de moeilijkste besluiten in het leven. 'Elegant, delicaat, gevaarlijk en vol diepe betekenis.' The Sunday Times 'Veel van de verhalen zijn ontroerend. In de kern is dit is een boek over wijsheid en ervaring.' The Daily Telegraph 'Uitstekend... enorm meeslepend.' The Spectator '[Marsh] krijgt je op het puntje van je stoel... Artsen praten zelden zo eerlijk en vrij met ons als Marsh.' Daily Mail 'Marsh biedt ons een gedenkschrift van verrassende openhartigheid en eerlijkheid.' Mail on Sunday 'Het is de ontwapenende openhartigheid van Marsh die het boek zon boeiende leeservaring maakt... fascinerend.' The Guardian 'Allereerst niet schaden is in veel opzichten een verscheurend document: in grote lijnen bevat het niet alleen verhalen van triomf of vaardigheid en expertise van de auteur, maar vooral de emotionele en psychologische tol die het eist als er iets vreselijk mis gaat.'

READING: The research for this extensive, two volume project represents a comprehensive effort to establish a complete context from which the sport of bodybuilding arose. "Muscle, Smoke & Mirrors" is the rise and fall of what was truly once an extraordinary discipline associated with a term known as "Physical Culture". Experience what bodybuilding was originally and learn just exactly what "Physical Culture" really is. See what growing philanthropic power flexed its financial and political muscles to foster its corporate agenda, compromising human health internationally. Read how the merger of technology and politics culminated in the industrialization, commercialization, federalization, internationalization and finally the STERILIZATION of a nation's food supply, rendering it suspect not only to the general public; but also to the most elite of athletes. Whether you are a novice, an elite bodybuilder or simply sports-nutrition minded, learn how the emerging forces of the Iron Game evolved. Ultimately, the factions of this industry would grow powerful and manipulative while fighting for control over the Game. It took the running of several parallel histories on bodybuilding, nutrition, supplements and the role of drugs to offer a complete, first-time unraveling of the web of confusion and politics that still permeates the sport into the 21st century! Volume I of "Muscle, Smoke & Mirrors" is truly the untold stories surrounding "Bodybuilding's Amazing Nutritional Origins."

READING: Is there a crisis in Canadian health care? While the establishment of the Canadian health care system is widely considered a triumph of citizenship, after four decades the national program is in a fragile state marked by declining public confidence. In First Do No Harm, Sullivan and Baranek provide a concise introduction to the fundamentals of health care in Canada and examine various ideas for reforming the system sensibly. Arguing that administrators and policymakers should follow Hippocrates' dictum "first do no harm" when evaluating and reforming the Canadian health care system, the authors discuss health care financing, popular Canadian health care myths, waiting lists and emergency room overcrowding, and home- and community-based health care. This book is an invaluable invitation to Canadians to think carefully and creatively about the present and future of our health care system.

READING: Among the evils addressed by Christian theology, says Stephen Ray, must be the evil perpetuated by its own well-meant theologies. His important project examines the downside of the category of social sin, especially in theologians' use of destructive stereotypes that have kept Christians from realizing and engaging the most pervasive social evils of our time-racism and anti-Semitism. To make his case, Ray examines problematic ways in which several theologians describe the reality of social evil. "Theologians," he contends, "often unwittingly describe [social] sin in terms that may themselves be profoundly racist, sexist, heterosexist, anti-Semitic, and classist." He contends that they must attend more carefully to the social evils deeply embedded in their own patterns of language and thought. Ray looks specifically to the work of Reinhold Neibuhr and Dietrich Bonhoeffer to document unintended consequences of theology's oversights and then to Augustine, Luther, and Calvin to analyze the strains and strengths of traditional notions. Not only theologians and ethicists but also ministers and laity will benefit from Ray's thoughtful reconsideration of the social stance of Christian theology.

She recruits Chandler to be an emergency room doctor on Atlantic Isle, a tropical paradise in the Bahamas. Chandler can’t refuse her. His sense of adventure draws him to the island, as does his attraction to Pandora. Upon his arrival, however, Chandler comes to realize Atlantic Isle houses many unexpected, dangerous secrets, including some kept by Pandora herself. Soon, Pandora turns up dead, and Chandler has to wonder if he might be the killer’s next target. He doesn’t trust his new boss, Obi Falconer, who runs the Bahamas medical center. Falconer will do anything for power and money—maybe even murder. Chandler wants to avenge Pandora’s death and bring health reform to Atlantic Isle ... but someone might kill him first.

READING: Do No Harm by Henry Marsh | Summary & Analysis Preview: Do No Harm is neurosurgeon Henry Marsh’s memoir, with a particular focus on his mistakes and regrets. Marsh admits that he grew up privileged. He began his college career studying English, but quit school due to an unrequited love. He took a job working in a mining town hospital, an experience that inspired him to become a surgeon. He returned to Oxford to finish his degree and then attended the Royal Free Medical School in London, the only medical school at the time that did not require him to have any scientific qualifications. As a medical student, Marsh worked as a nursing assistant on the psycho-geriatric ward of a long term psychiatric hospital. There he saw many patients who had been given lobectomies at the hospital where he would later train. Lobectomies were an accepted method of treating severe mental disorders, but would often leave the patient worse off than they were before… PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

READING: The history of medicinal drugs extends back to the earliest human civilizations, when the search began for natural materialsplant, animal, or mineralthat might possess the power to cure, alleviate, or avert maladies or wounds. The quest continues still, conducted now by scientists and doctors in the thousands and in the shadow of big pharma. The story abounds with human interest, populated as it is with geniuses and charlatans, with the inspired and the deluded, with self-sacrifice and self-aggrandizement. Medicine over the centuries has been pervaded by false doctrines amounting to superstitions, the causes of endless misery and numberless death, and there were truths not recognized for decades and longer. Finally, industry, and its profit motive, has become an inescapable presence, which is sometimes a blessing to some or a curse to others, a source sometimes of corruption or sometimes of dazzling progress. Which of these predominates, it is up to the reader to judge.
