Mastering Stress, Maximizing Success: Your Complete Guide to Overcoming Anxiety & Finding Purpose in Your Life by Dr. LaShawn Gill



Stress is a curse, as well as, a blessing, in that it occurs in malignant, as well as, benign forms.

What am I prepared to do about this stress that I am experiencing? Fortunately, there are more constructive ways of handling stress . This book is not intended to be a "do-it-yourself" guide to mental and emotional health, although it may provide information and insights that will direct ways toward self-improvement. This book is designed to help both individuals and organizations.

50 Years in the OR: True Stories of Life, Loss, and Laughter While Giving Anesthesia by Ronald Whitchurch



The First Book about the Unsung Heroes of the Operating Room

Ron Whitchurch has the observation, wit and insight of a modern day Mark Twain and the eyebrows and mustache to match."

Koco Eaton, MD, ABOS, Team Physician, Tampa Bay Rays

“An extraordinary book which brilliantly and compellingly conveys the day-to-day workings of the operating room.” 

Kevin M. Sweeney, MD, board-certified neurosurgeon, former chief of Neurosurgery of Mease hospitals in Dunedin and Clearwater, Florida

It’s a busy time for the anesthetist during surgery. Keeping a watchful eye on the patient’s vital signs and being prepared for any possibilities that might develop are an anesthetist’s prime focus. Each case is unique, whether it’s a scheduled surgery on a healthy patient, an emergency or a critical illness. They all require analytical judgments along with many skills to manage them.

Ron Whitchurch wrote this wildly entertaining book to offer a firsthand look at what happens after patients are anesthetized and what challenges the staff face in keeping them healthy and safe. 

50 Years in the OR gives readers an intimate sense of what it’s like to be the only person in the OR who knows the heartbeat-to-heartbeat status of a surgical patient at any given moment.

Vite in attesa di Julia Sabina



Nella vita Maribel ha preso molte decisioni sbagliate e pochissime buone. Ma ora sente che le cose stanno per cambiare. Ha appena accettato un dottorato a Lille, in Francia. In fondo, nulla la trattiene a Madrid, così parte, piena di speranza: è giovane, e ha tutte le carte in regola per essere felice. Non fa altro che sentirselo ripetere. L'emozione di un nuovo paese, di una nuova lingua, di nuove persone da conoscere all'inizio la travolge. Ora Maribel riesce a vederle, le mille possibilità che ha davanti. Ma l'incantesimo presto si spegne. Intorno, tutto sembra vorticare a gran velocità e lei non riesce a stare al passo. Tutti perseguono il proprio obiettivo senza tentennamenti, come la sua coinquilina Paula o il suo amico Alessio. Lei, invece, trascina le sue giornate lavorando in un bar e facendo finta di scrivere una tesi di cui non importa a nessuno, forse nemmeno a lei. Per non parlare del bel Guillaume che un giorno appare e quello dopo scompare. Maribel si sente di nuovo al punto di partenza. Come se l'incertezza non derivasse dal luogo in cui si trova o da chi frequenta, ma risiedesse dentro di lei. Fino a quando scopre  che anche i suoi amici in realtà non hanno idea di dove stanno andando. Perché essere giovani è una fortuna ma è anche una grande sfida: il mondo ti disegna in un modo e tu non sai ancora chi vuoi diventare. Maribel vuole capire chi è veramente, senza condizionamenti. Vuole un lavoro, ma solo se migliora la sua vita. Vuole amare, ma solo se può farlo con passione. Vuole dare un senso a una realtà che sembra averlo perso molto tempo prima. Perché sarà pure disorientata, ma ha tanta voglia di vivere.

The Memory Paperback by Judith Barrow



Mother and daughter tied together by shame and secrecy, love and hate.

I wait by the bed. I move into her line of vision and it’s as though we’re watching one another, my mother and me; two women – trapped.

Today has been a long time coming. Irene sits at her mother's side waiting for the right moment, for the point at which she will know she is doing the right thing by Rose.

Rose was Irene's little sister, an unwanted embarrassment to their mother Lilian but a treasure to Irene. Rose died thirty years ago, when she was eight, and nobody has talked about the circumstances of her death since. But Irene knows what she saw. Over the course of 24 hours their moving and tragic story is revealed – a story of love and duty, betrayal and loss – as Irene rediscovers the past and finds hope for the future.

"...A book that is both powerful and moving, exquisitely penetrating. I am drawn in, empathising so intensely with Irene that I feel every twinge of her frustration, resentment, utter weariness and abiding love." Thorne Moore

"Judith Barrow's greatest strength is her understanding of her characters and the times in which they live; The Memory is a poignant tale of love and hate in which you will feel every emotion experienced by Irene." Terry Tyler

The new novel from the bestselling author of the Howarth family saga


The Assassin Who Couldn't Dance by Glen Barrera



Blue-eyed Hector Munoz (his present name) is fluent in five languages, can kill a man a hundred different ways and yet, at twenty-three had learned almost nothing about life and love. His father and brother were brutally murdered by corrupt U.S. military officers when he was seven. The teacher, a close friend of his father, took control of the boy’s life, as well as the future debt to be paid. Now, after years of rigorous training, the assassin is judged ready. But is he? The plan to draw out the officers has been set into motion. Hector has only to illegally cross the border from Mexico and retrieve keys to safe deposit boxes containing eight-million dollars and incriminating documents before the officers can respond. It shouldn’t be a problem. But then Hector’s plan didn’t include Mexican bandits; ruthless mercenaries also after the keys and led by a sadistic cowboy; or a sleazy Chicago mob figure. Things get more complicated for him when a third party joins the search for the keys, the crazed leader of a militia group with a secret room in his basement reserved for “guests” – and then falling in love with an escaped guest, Lucy. Hector also didn’t realize that the mercenaries’ target, an ex-Force Recon team holding the keys and the last four men to see his father alive, were far from old and rusty. In the race for the keys, Hector must confront the emotional emptiness in his life that he wasn’t allowed to experience in his quest for vengeance. With time running out, he is forced to make a choice: follow the assassination plan or ally with the surviving recon team, their families, and Lucy before they are eliminated; and, maybe discover who he really is.

Cambia il tuo Cervello, Cambia la tua Vita

Partendo da solide basi scientifiche, un noto scienziato spiega come ansia, depressione, rabbia, ossessioni e impulsività hanno un’origine biologica e possono essere rapportate al funzionamento di determinate strutture del cervello. Il dottor Amen afferma che non siamo costretti a rimanere “bloccati” per tutta la vita col cervello con cui siamo nati. Possiamo infatti cambiarne la fisiologia e possiamo individuare la fonte di molte difficoltà. Grazie a numerosi consigli pratici ed efficaci strumenti, potremo superare diversi problemi e ottimizzare il cervello per imprimere una svolta decisiva alla nostra vita. Tra le numerose e sorprendenti “ricette cerebrali”, impariamo a:
Sconfiggere ansia e attacchi di panico con semplici tecniche di respirazione ideate per calmare il tumulto interiore;
Combattere la depressione imparando ad allontanare gli automatismi negativi;
La dieta Amen e i cibi che calmano l'ira e la paura;
Vincere l'impulsività e imparare a focalizzarsi con la tecnica il "miracolo della pagina";
Far cessare le preoccupazioni ossessive con esercizi di scrittura "contro le fissazioni".
I nostri modelli cerebrali ci aiutano (o ci ostacolano) in tutti gli aspetti della vita e se soffriamo di disturbi emotivi o psichici arriviamo a credere che dipendano “dalla nostra testa”, che siano cioè puramente psicologici. Ma attraverso le ricerche che ha svolto, il dottor Amen dimostra che non è così. Abbinando teoria e pratica in un linguaggio alla portata di tutti, Cambia il tuo cervello, cambia la tua vita permette di prendere in mano le redini della propria esistenza e... del proprio cervello!
