Book Short Summary:

The dedicated lifestyle philosophy advocated in Alcott’s Vegetable Diet might have been written by a contemporary vegetarian food critic. Alcott’s complete disdain for meat and all animal products consumed as food would, in fact, be called a vegan diet. His book focuses on the superiority of a vegetable diet for supporting health and recovering from disease, and it contains dozens of letters testifying to that belief by various medical experts and many citizens who report in great detail the benefits of the vegetable diet for their health and lifestyle. In addition, the book includes a complete defense of the vegetable diet on anatomical, physiological, medical, political, economic, and moral grounds, with the final argument devoted to the immorality of men “plunging their hands in blood,” as antithetical to the tenets of true Christianity. The book also contains chapters on the nature and preparation, through narrative recipes, of “farinaceous or mealy substances,” fruits, roots, buds, shoots, leaves, and stalks, as well as “receipts” for most of the common garden vegetables of the day. More a defense of the vegan lifestyle than a cookbook, Alcott’s passionate assertions that disease could be cured and health enhanced by the program was debated, debunked, and successfully disseminated widely throughout the northeastern region of the new country. This facsimile edition of William Alcott's Vegetable Diet was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the Society is a research library documenting the life of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The Society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection includes approximately 1,100 volumes.?

Book Short Summary:

Based on a true story, we go a journey with Jez surfing magical waves in Bali; experimenting with mind-altering substances in London and Amsterdam; falling in love in Canada with a snowboarding pothead; camping with a Christian scientologist hippy in Oregon; and hitching a ride with Satan and the Anti-Christ in Mexico. Having a reflective nature, he keeps a journal, writes poetry, philosophy and emails his muse in Australia. Jez asks the questions; what really is success? What’s my purpose? Where does this journey take one? Travel uproots his attachments, brings answers and a sense of freedom, whilst following the mystery. A novel begins to bud from Jez’s musings, yet it’s ending remains clouded by various distractions that one by one, are faced until a sublime breakthrough occurs. Jez at twenty-two has it all; good looks, popularity, a girlfriend, career but something doesn’t feel right. He sees more to life than getting ahead. Inspired by the words of the beat writers and a rock-n-roll muse, Jez drops out of a physiotherapy degree and takes off overseas to follow his bliss. With a try anything once attitude, a passion for extreme sports, an interest in, Eastern mysticism, and an around-the-world ticket with a few friends dotted across the globe, Jez seeks answers. Black Sheep, White Light is a gripping tale of adventure, and the blooming of an artist on his quest for truth. It is a testimonial to following one’s bliss and dreams, listening to one’s heart, and surrendering to the mystery of life, no matter how challenging it can become. It’s a story for those who dare to dream, journey, and follow their truths to where the light shines bright. “It’s truly rare and precious to find a book which has this level of non-judgmental honesty, depth, sensitivity and respect whilst exploring the outer worlds of travel, extreme sports, sex, drugs and rock-n-roll.” -Lisa Fitzpatrick ~ Soul Purpose Coach & Author

Book Short Summary:

The Burning Boy is a vivid picture of life in a provincial town in times of disturbance and change. Certainties collapse in the face of violence. People start along strange ways, some to loss or ruin, others to unexpected happiness. The Burning Boy won the New Zealand Book Awards in 1991. 'Written with verve and economy, Maurice Gee's novel has a wealth of penetratingly observed incidents, some spectacular and dramatic, some distinctly unpleasant. Most, however, are ordinary, everyday events from which Gee builds an engaging narrative and a detailed picture of the life of the city - a city which, under different names in successive novels, he is steadily making into his equivalent of Hardy's Wessex.' - Times Literary Supplement

Book Short Summary:

Homeopathy is an alternative, complementary, cost-effective, and very safe healing system for infants to old age. During early period of twentieth century, it was practiced parallel to the conventional (allopathic) system. It is widely practiced in Germany, United Kingdom, India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan. The classical books on homeopathy, published before the 1900s, describe often in obsolete medical terms, the theory, philosophy, and symptoms of provings (drug testing). They are deficient in application methods to find the correct homeopathic remedy easily. They have little reference to pathological changes in tissues. In practice, different patients express their symptoms in different words even though suffering from same disease. It is often difficult to find the correct homeopathic remedy based on the patient’s symptoms alone. K. Robinson, MD, a contemporary expert, wrote in an editorial The Cutting Edge, “I suppose, the overwhelming drive in the practice of homeopathy is toward precision in prescribing. Because the accurate prescribing is so difficult, we find ourselves studying constantly, and yet we never feel complete” (J. A. I. H, vol. 79, no. 1, March 1986). This book, Homeopathy in Practice: Clinical Insights into Homeopathy and Remedies, offers the practical aspects and clinical keynotes on remedies related to various illnesses, backed by successful reports from journals, books, personal discussions, and experiences of others. This book will help find the correct remedy easily. Just refer to the relevant heading in the contents. Go to the associate page(s) and glance through the keynotes of remedies. You will often spot the correct homeopathic remedy.

Book Short Summary:

Allura’s life is a testament to the strength and resilience of cross-cultural educated Middle Eastern women in the modern age, who are railing against a life that makes little sense, with all its twists and turns. Her compelling emotional journey is based on true stories of extraordinary women who are wrongly conceived by the outside world as “spoilt.” A tower of strength and energy, her enthusiasm to challenge life’s obstacles and temptations reflects some of the mind-blowing hardships some women experience. Bound by passion, linked by need – she is compelled to stand on her two feet early in life. Having a first-hand experience of the real world, Allura’s reclusive and vulnerable character turned into bold, courageous, resolute, fiery and tempestuous. Social constraints, family upheavals and unexpected tragedies are just among a few things that force Allura to make life changing choices of her own, which is when her whole world begins to unravel. Inspired by a true story.

Book Short Summary:

In this humorous travelogue round Cuba, the hapless author suffers from both urban myths and his Missus (aka the Drinks Police). The first he debunks as they occur; the crises his Missus causes, or would have caused but for his timely intervention, are a more serious matter. Acutely aware that Cuba is certain to change in the near future and probably radically, award-winning author David M. Addison was anxious to experience the country as it is now, under communism and Castro. Apart from describing what daily life is like for ordinary Cubans, he also delves into Cuba’s past – from the original inhabitants and post-Columbian conquest to the Wars of Independence and the Bay of Pigs and its aftermath. On the literary trail, Addison pays homage to Hemingway as he follows in his footsteps. And if that should necessitate a visit to a bar or two, that can’t be helped. It’s not a lame excuse for a bar crawl despite what the Drinks Police may think. It goes without saying that in Cuba you can’t avoid classic cars and cigars but the author also takes a close look at Cuba’s art and architecture, flora and fauna and not least, the country’s other most famous product – rum. Another cause for a crisis as far as the Missus is concerned. A mine on all aspects of Cuban culture both past and present, this is useful background reading for anyone intending a visit to Cuba as well as being a handy accompaniment to your guidebook when you go. Or, if armchair travelling is more your thing, pour yourself a glass of rum or mix a mojito and learn and laugh your way round Cuba.

Book Short Summary:

There are not many books about how people get younger. It doesn’t happen very often. But Ageing with Smartphones in Ireland documents a radical change in the experience of ageing. Based on two ethnographies, one within Dublin and the other from the Dublin region, the book shows that people, rather than seeing themselves as old, focus on crafting a new life in retirement. Our research participants apply new ideals of sustainability both to themselves and to their environment. They go for long walks, play bridge, do yoga and keep as healthy as possible. As part of Ireland’s mainstream middle class, they may have more time than the young to embrace green ideals and more money to move to energy-efficient homes, throw out household detritus and protect their environment. The smartphone has become integral to this new trajectory. For some it is an intimidating burden linked to being on the wrong side of a new digital divide. But for most, however, it has brought back the extended family and old friends, and helped resolve intergenerational conflicts though facilitating new forms of grandparenting. It has also become central to health issues, whether by Googling information or looking after frail parents. The smartphone enables this sense of getting younger as people download the music of their youth and develop new interests. This is a book about acknowledging late middle age in contemporary Ireland. How do older people in Ireland experience life today? Praise for Ageing with Smartphones in Ireland 'An innovative and thorough description and analysis of how one small piece of technology has changed the way Irish people live their lives.' Tom Inglis, Professor Emeritus of Sociology in University College Dublin

Isla Shayne knows she's in over her head. As former all-star linebacker Trey Adams's personal lawyer, she's used to handling his business dealings and private financial matters, not murder charges.

David Cormack of Garrison, Cormack and Lawless is exactly what she needs in the courtroom--and the only man she wants in the bedroom.

Book Short Summary:

What happens when a major league pro sports team leaves a city? The Hartford Whalers left on April 13, 1997leaving behind devastated fans. The players left, tooexcept one who stayed and suffered like the fans. Tiger Burns is an unlikely heroeven for a hobbit-sized, smash-faced, hockey goon with 600 fights. Standing 53, with one-eye, cauliflower ears, and a full-rigged ship tattoo on his chest, his most unusual feature is this: he loves Hartford and its team, the Whalers. In a league where players date super models, ice princesses and Miss Americas, he is a misfit. But in a league of Los Angeles, New York and Boston so is Hartford. Brass Bonanza Plays Again tells the riches-to-rags story of Mark Twains hometown, once the nations richest, now the butt of jokes. It relates the true saga of a small citys beloved team moved away, like Brooklyns Dodgers. And it weaves the tragicomic tale of the muscle-bound gnome who blows the jump-the-shark game against arch-rival Boston on April 11, 1990, lives homeless under a bridge, only to rise up and lead a dead team, out of the stands onto the ice. Tiger rallies not only a dead hockey team, but awakens the ghosts of Hartfords past. He brings to life a ragtag band of 19th century legends and is saved by a guardian angel Rube Waddell, one of sports goats from the 1905 World Series. Can a one-eyed, homeless underdog make a faded city believe and rescue a star-crossed spirit? In Brass Bonanza Plays Again, we have Rocky (on Skates!) meets Field of Dreams. Rocky came out of a Philly row house, Rudy out of an Indiana steel mill, and now Tiger Burns comes out from under a Hartford bridge to bring a dead team to life. A book of provincial aspirations and condescension, Brass Bonanza Plays Again tells the story of this small city, midway between New York and Boston, long considered just a urine-stop or ass-wipe between Wall Street and Cape Cod. The New York Times recently printed an essay In Search of the Great American Hockey Novel lamenting that hockey, unlike other sports, has yet to be celebrated in a notable work. Where is the Chekhov of the Chicago Blackhawks? the Times asks. Who is the Stendahl of the stick to the groin? To that, we humbly say: read on.

Book Short Summary:

Interdisciplinary Teaching about the Earth and Environment for a Sustainable Future presents the outcomes of the InTeGrate project, a community effort funded by the National Science Foundation to improve Earth literacy and build a workforce prepared to tackle environmental and resource issues. The InTeGrate community is built around the shared goal of supporting interdisciplinary learning about Earth across the undergraduate curriculum, focusing on the grand challenges facing society and the important role that the geosciences play in addressing these grand challenges. The chapters in this book explicitly illustrate the intimate relationship between geoscience and sustainability that is often opaque to students. The authors of these chapters are faculty members, administrators, program directors, and researchers from institutions across the country who have collectively envisioned, implemented, and evaluated effective change in their classrooms, programs, institutions, and beyond. This book provides guidance to anyone interested in implementing change—on scales ranging from a single course to an entire program—by infusing sustainability across the curriculum, broadening access to Earth and environmental sciences, and assessing the impacts of those changes.

Book Short Summary:

Julie, who is employed as a theatre sister in a hospital, in Sydney, Australia, witnesses a murder on her way home from work. Knowing the murderer will try to kill Julie, the only witness, the police advise her to leave the area until the murderer is caught, and not to disclose to anyone, including her new Boss, that shes a nurse hiding from a killer, as it could lead him to her. This proves very difficult when she takes a job as a cook on a cattle station in the outback.. The owner of the cattle station, a ruggedly handsome, Dan Makepeace, is very suspicious as to why a beautiful young woman would want to work as a cook in the outback, and is very hostile to her when she arrives to take up her new employment. His distrust of her leads to a great deal of conflict between them, which is not helped by the build up of sexual tension between them. Could Julie have jumped from the frying pan into the fire and does the killer find her?

Book Short Summary:

This book explains the principles of social marketing and examines the implications of using techniques devised on Wall Street to further social and health goals. Naomi Kein, Joel Bakan and George Monbiot have each done a great job of telling us what is wrong with corporate capitalism. This book begins to provide some solutions. It shows how we can a) borrow the techniques they use to promote consumption, to encourage more socially desirable behaviours, and b) use rigorous research to enable regulators to constrain the worst excesses of Wall Street. Modern marketing techniques now pervade every aspect of our lives: the government, charities, advocacy groups use it to encourage us to live more healthily, support good causes or be more ecologically sensitive. This book asks whether this works and what does it tell us about the relationship between business and civil society? Highly accessible with clear learning objectives, exercises and worked examples, this is also a text that stretches our understanding of the discipline and raises questions about future directions. * First European text in the ground-breaking field of social marketing * Authored by the founder and Director of the Institute of Social Marketing and Centre for Tobacco Control, whose high quality academic research in the field is disseminated to health professionals, government and academics in the UK, Europe and Australasia. * Tailored for accessibility with learning features throughout, the text also adopts an approach that stretches the discipline and takes it further.

Book Short Summary:

This book is recommended for lecturers & students of social policy & social care; social workers; head teachers & school teachers; parents & pupils; foster carers, healthcare workers, care providers, service users and the policy makers. This handbook broadly and concisely covers several aspects of abuse, neglect and ill-discipline in various quarters. It looks into a lack of compassion for the elderly, the physically challenged and the infirm; as well as insufficient care and attention for the carers themselves in social care institutions. It also addresses indiscipline in schools and why strict discipline must be enforced in the educational sector. Discipline within the areas of parenting and foster care is addressed, along with some specific examples of ill-disciplined behaviour among foster children and school children. The consequences of over-pampering are looked at, together with the accountability of social workers and parents. Some recommendations are outlined for curbing ill-discipline in these sectors and in society at large. Interviews with people from various places are included, and these briefly examine different aspects of discipline within selected countries.
