A Beautiful Question: Finding Nature's Deep Design “Mr. Wilczek takes the reader on an expertly curated tour across 2,500 years of philosophy and physics…One of the great
7

“Mr. Wilczek takes the reader on an expertly curated tour across 2,500 years of philosophy and physics…One of the great pleasures of Mr. Wilczek’s book is his wide-ranging interest in the way the beauty he finds in symmetry appears across human experience. …He has accomplished a rare feat: Writing a book of profound humanity based on questions aimed directly at the eternal.”—The Wall Street Journal “Inspiring and remarkably accessible… Wilczek’s language is lyrical and almost mystical…whatever the answer Nature will ultimately give us, we have the pleasure of engaging with an enlightened and humble mind.”—The Chronicle of Higher Education “The beauty of [nature’s] equations merges with the beauty of literature in Wilczek’s book. It’s a work of art.”—Science News “Relentlessly engaging…not only names but also wisely reframes a lot of basic concepts in modern physics….Wilczek’s fearless reframing comes as a pleasant relief.” —LA Review of Books “[A] deep, challenging, and marvelous book.”—Library Journal "[A] skillfully written reflection...unique in the genre of popular works...contains something for every reader, from the physicist who wants to learn how a Nobel Prize winner thinks of the connection between ideas and reality to the layman who wants to know more about the structure of fundamental laws. A Beautiful Question reminds us of the many ways that science connects to the arts, and it invites us to marvel at the success our species has had in unraveling the mysteries of nature."—Physics Today "A Beautiful Question is both a brilliant exploration of largely uncharted territories and a refreshingly idiosyncratic guide to developments in particle physics."—Nature "A commendable investigation of the nature of reality.”—Kirkus “In this delightful book, we are given a rare opportunity to enter the mind of one of the world’s most creative and insightful scientists. Frank Wilczek’s dazzling meditation on reality reveals the exquisite fusion of truth, beauty and the deep laws of the universe.”—Brian Greene, author of ithe Elegant Universe “A Beautiful Question is a compelling introduction to the triumphs and challenges of modern physics, presented as a meditation on the role of aesthetics in the search for a deeper understanding of nature, and the deeper meanings of that search for humanity. Full of historical background and infused with the author’s generous humanity, this is indeed a beautiful book, one I recommend to anyone interested in where science is going, written by someone who, by his many lasting contributions to science, has earned our attention.”—Lee Smolin, author of Time Reborn and The Trouble with Physics “In this exquisite and remarkably accessible book, Frank Wilczek explores our cosmos as a work of art, revealing hidden beauty at all levels from the Galactic realm down to the subatomic microworld that his trailblazing research has elucidated. His ability to see what others overlook makes him an inspiring guide not only for scientists, but also for artists and all curious people.”—Max Tegmark, author of Our Mathematical Universe “If you’ve ever wondered what physicists mean when they describe a theory as ‘beautiful,’ A Beautiful Question is the ideal place to find out. Wilczek is both one of the greats of the subject, and not afraid to engage non-technically with the wonderful complexities and intangibilities of the mysterious beauty that lies at the core of our understanding of the physical world.”—Peter Woit, author of Not Even Wrong “Anyone who has studied physics knows the startling beauty of those rare times when the clouds part and you see that math and reality are the same thing. With Wilczek’s new book, readers can catch a glimpse of that beauty without having to know the math.”—Noah Smith, Stony Brook University; author of Noahpinion “In contemporary art, Beauty has faded, a prosaic artifice, a distraction from deeper raw truths, maybe even ugly truths. To the exceptional physicist Frank Wilczek, Beauty has proven a luminous ally, a faithful advisor in his discoveries of remarkable truths about the world. Ever in pursuit of truth, Frank guides us in a calm and winsome meditation on this subtle question: Is the world beautiful?”—Janna Levin, author of How the Universe Got Its Spots A beautiful treatise on a beautiful universe, this delightful series of meditations on the nature of beauty and the physical universe roams from music, to color vision, to fundamental ideas at the very forefront of physics today. In lesser hands such a romp could easily degenerate into a kind of new age mystical mumbo jumbo. However, Frank Wilczek is one of the deepest, most creative, and most knowledgeable theoretical physicists alive today. Read him or listen to him and you will never think about the universe the same way again. And if your experience is like mine over the years, you will definitely be the better for it.”—Lawrence Krauss, author of A Universe from Nothing and The Physics of Star-Trek “Frank Wilczek starts this fascinating book with the intriguing question: Does the world embody beautiful ideas? What follows is a masterful, intellectual journey, surveying a breathtaking tapestry of physics, art, and philosophy. One could ask Wilczek’s question differently: Does this book embody beautiful ideas? The answer would be a resounding Yes!”—Mario Livio, astrophysicist, author of Brilliant Blunders “Before there was Science, there was Natural Philosophy. In this authoritative, ever-surprising, and lavishly illustrated account, Frank Wilczek brings the grand quest that so captivated Pythagoras, Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Maxwell, Einstein, Noether, and a host of others both up to date and back to life.”—George Dyson, author of Turing's Cathedral “A truly beautiful book, in design, in content, in the insights that Frank Wilczek shares. This book helps me see how one of the world’s leading thinkers thinks, using beauty as a tool, as a guide in finding not only the right problems but the right solutions. In Wilczek’s mind, there is no clear separation between physics, art, poetry, and music. Why do physicists call their theories beautiful? Immerse yourself in this book, wallow in it, sit back and relax as you wander through it, and you’ll soon understand.”—Richard Muller, author of Physics for Future Presidents “For a century, science has invalidated ‘soft’ questions about truth, beauty, and transcendence. It took considerable courage therefore for Frank Wilczek to declare that such questions are within the framework of ‘hard’ science. Anyone who wants to see how science and transcendence can be compatible must read this book. Wilczek has caught the winds of change, and his thinking breaks through some sacred boundaries with curiosity, insight, and intellectual power.”—Deepak Chopra, M.D. About the Author Frank Wilczek won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2004 for work he did as a graduate student. His 1989 book, Longing for the Harmonies, was a New York Times notable book of the year. Wilczek is a regular contributor to Nature and Physics Today and his work has also been anthologized in Best American Science Writing and the Norton Anthology of Light Verse. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he is the Herman Feshbach Professor of Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Kiss the Ground: How the Food You Eat Can Reverse Climate Change, Heal Your Body & Ultimately Save Our World “Kiss the Ground gives us the most practical solution to reversing climate change. The soil is a vital and untapped resource. A

$17.10 USD

“Kiss the Ground gives us the most practical solution to reversing climate change. The soil is a vital and untapped resource. A must read for anyone committed to healing our bodies and our Earth.” (Deepak Chopra) “Through my life as a chef, one of the most important lessons I have learned is that we have to take care of our Earth, or it won’t be able to go on taking care of us. Every one of us—farmers and chefs, parents and children, business people and world leaders—must play a part in keeping our planet healthy so that it can go on keeping us healthy. That’s why I’m so happy to discover Kiss the Ground, which offers a fascinating, easy-to-follow blueprint for how eating in ways that nourish and regenerate the soil can not only help reverse global warming but also bring greater vitality to our lives. “ (Wolfgang Puck) “Kiss the Ground is a powerful, provocative new look at how we can all participate in honoring Mother Earth. Our food is the source of our life and the soil is the source of our food. This book shows the simple steps each one of us can take to restore the health of our bodies and our planet.” (Woody Harrelson) “Food, soil, even eating itself…all are fundamental issues in the effort to live a more enlightened life. Kiss the Ground both informs and inspires, as it connects biology and geography and species diversity to the yearnings of the human heart.” (Marianne Williamson, #1 New York Times bestselling author) “Our food choices not only impact our personal health, but the health of the world we all live in. Kiss the Ground is the first book to connect our health to what is going on in the atmosphere. If you care about your kids, about the food you’re feeding them and about the future of the planet, you need to read this book.” (Vani Hari, New York Times bestselling author and creator of FoodBabe.com) “Kiss the Ground paints a hopeful yet achievable picture of a way of growing food that makes our soil healthier, makes us healthier, and ultimately could make our climate healthier too. As somebody who’s thrown his hat into the new ‘regenerative movement’ I recommend this book to anyone wanting to heal themselves and our planet.” (Kimbal Musk, co-founder of The Kitchen) “The book Kiss the Ground shines a beacon of light on the growing global 'regenerative agriculture’ movement, illuminating a new path toward carbon sequestration and hopefully, a path toward a balanced climate. With clear, accessible language, wit and humor, this book gives readers powerful tools to overcome humanity’s greatest challenge." (Terry Tannimen, CEO of Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and former Secretary of the California EPA) “Kiss the Ground re-imagines conventional wisdom and adds to our armory in our existential duty to slow and reverse climate change. We know that we must aggressively reduce our carbon footprint. But as we learn in this profound, timely, and important book, we can also pursue traditional solutions to harness the carbon already in our atmosphere—and replant it here on earth. A simple composting program and healthy soils can be a key weapon in saving our planet (from ourselves).” (Gavin Newsom, Lt. Governor of California) “Tickell entwines his explanation of the new agriculture in vivid reportage…[his] vision is captivating.” (Publishers Weekly) “A journalist, activist, and filmmaker examines how soil-conscious farming practices may affect climate change…refreshingly, the narrative is richly visual.” (Kirkus Reviews) About the Author Josh Tickell is a journalist, activist, author, and award-winning film director whose movies (Fuel, The Big Fix, Pump, Good Fortune) have been shortlisted for Academy Awards, shown in the White House, won awards at the Sundance Film Festival, and have been viewed by over 50 million people worldwide. His first book, From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank, jumpstarted the biodiesel movement and raised billions of dollars for the algae fuel industry.

$19.00 USD

“Easily the best negotiation book I have ever read. If you are involved in high-stakes negotiation, Negotiating the Impossible will give you actionable nonintuitive ideas that will positively impact your future.” - Bill Gurley, venture capitalist and General Partner, Benchmark “Packed with practical principles and illustrated with compelling examples, Negotiating the Impossible is one of the most useful and enjoyable negotiation books you will ever read!” - William Ury, coauthor of Getting to Yes “Negotiating the Impossible delivers on its promise. By using historically significant, seemingly intractable negotiations as examples, Malhotra provides practical lessons for the everyday negotiations in your life—including the three surprising ‘levers' at your service when the use of force is not a viable option. This book is magic for any deal maker.” - Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and To Sell Is Human “Deepak Malhotra has done what few others could do: he draws upon the lessons of history to demonstrate that even the worst conflicts can be resolved. This book is especially significant because it gives both the inspiration and the tools you need to tackle extremely difficult negotiations.” — David Gergen, Senior Political Analyst, CNN; adviser to four US presidents; and Codirector, Center for Public Leadership, Harvard Kennedy School “If you want the best advice on how to negotiate when it looks like a deal can't be done, then Negotiating the Impossible is a must. It's filled with great strategies you can immediately put to use in your business and personal lives. It's also an extremely entertaining, thought-provoking book that you won't want to put down.” - Tyra Banks, CEO, TYRA Beauty, and creator of America's Next Top Model “If only we could lock the world's leaders in a room to read this book. Professor Malhotra's analysis of how negotiators can achieve the best possible outcomes for all sides is revelatory. It also starkly highlights what's missing in current negotiations—whether on refugees, on peace in Syria, or on Eurozone debt. This is a must-read for all practitioners of politics and public service.” - Ngaire Woods, Founding Dean, Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford, and adviser to the IMF Board, UNDP's Human Development Report, and Commonwealth Heads of Government “Professor Malhotra is a rare academic with real expertise in the world of negotiation and diplomacy. He gets his hands dirty and has worked behind the scenes on some of the most difficult negotiations of our time. Professor Malhotra sees what others don't see—and he has written it all down in Negotiating the Impossible.” - Jonathan Powell, former Chief of Staff to Tony Blair; chief British negotiator on Northern Ireland; founder of Inter-Mediate; and author of Talking to Terrorists “Negotiating the Impossible is a tour de force. Professor Malhotra is both a leading academic and an amazing storyteller; he has also been in the trenches and knows firsthand what it takes to tackle even the most difficult of situations. Whether you've done one deal or a hundred, this book will change how you negotiate. I will be giving it to everyone on my team.” - Vinod Khosla, venture capitalist and founder of Khosla Ventures Book Description Bestselling author and Harvard Business School professor Deepak Malhotra shows how to tackle even the most difficult, deadlocked, seemingly unsolvable conflicts.

Counterclockwise: Mindful Health and the Power of Possibility by Ellen J. Langer

“Ellen Langer offers us brilliant insights into subtleties that hold us back in life, and shows the way to shining new possibilities. Counterclockwise will change the way you see and think.” — Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., author Emotional Intelligence and Ecological Intelligence “Counterclockwise makes a strong case for the influence of expectation and belief on how our bodies function, on how we heal, and even how we age. Ellen Langer presents fascinating scientific data to support this view and argues convincingly that we should learn to take greater control of our health through the practice of mindfulness. Her research is innovative and empowering.”—Andrew Weil, M.D. “Ellen Langer’s work has been an inspiration to me for years. Counterclockwise, her latest book, will change the way you think about your health — for the better. It’s simply fabulous.” —Christiane Northrup, MD, author The Secret Pleasures of Menopause and The Wisdom of Menopause "Awareness-mindfulness-is the first step in healing. In Counterclockwise, Dr. Ellen Langer eloquently describes how becoming more aware of our beliefs and expectations allows us to powerfully transform our lives for the better. A pioneering, beautifully-written book." —Dean Ornish, M.D. “Take a smart, creative social scientist, without any respect for conventional wisdom and you get Ellen Langer. She is a fantastic storyteller, and Counterclockwise is a fascinating story about the unexpected ways in which our minds and bodies are connected. More importantly, Counterclockwise shows how a better understanding of this relationship can lead to a better life.”—Dan Ariely, Ph.D., author of Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces that Shape Our Decisions “Counterclockwise presents a new way to think about lifelong health and aging. Read this most important book to improve your quality of life at any age.” —Deepak Chopra “Counterclockwise is a gem–a book that is equally practical and philosophical without seeming to be either, and one that makes you feel better—more conscious and more prepared–about growing old, even if you weren't feeling bad about it in the first place. There is no one thinking more creatively about sickness and health than Ellen Langer, and she shares what she knows here with uncommon felicity.” — Sue Halpern, author of Can’t Remember What I Forgot: The Good News from the Front Lines of Memory Research “Dr. Langer’s work provides fascinating insight into the body-mind connection. She shows how changing our minds changes our bodies to optimize our health and performance as we get older." —Jill Bolte Taylor, author, My Stroke of Insight About the Author Ellen J. Langer is the author of eleven books, including the international bestseller Mindfulness, which has been translated into fifteen languages, and more than two hundred research articles. She is the recipient of, among other numerous awards and honors, a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Award for Distinguished Contributions to Psychology in the Public Interest from the American Psychological Association, the Award for Distinguished Contributions of Basic Science to the Application of Psychology from the American Association of Applied and Preventive Psychology, and the Adult Development and Aging Distinguished Research Achievement Award from the American Psychological Association. Langer’s trailblazing experiments in social psychology have earned her inclusion in The New York Times Magazine’s “Year in Ideas” issue and will soon be the subject of a major motion picture. A member of the psychology department at Harvard University and a painter, she lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works--A True Story From Booklist Harris had the ambition and drive to rise to ABC News television anchor. He’d felt the “journalistic heroin”
126
$13.33 USD

From Booklist Harris had the ambition and drive to rise to ABC News television anchor. He’d felt the “journalistic heroin” of reporting from war zones, anchored national broadcasts, and even recovered from cocaine addiction. But he also had a voice in his head, the same voice most of us wrestle with, constantly second-guessing him. If he could only quiet that voice, he’d be happier and less stressed. Harris was already covering the religion beat when he veered off on a personal journey to find answers beyond the self-help gurus. Along the way, he talked to Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, a host of Jewish Buddhists, and even the Dalai Lama before reluctantly trying meditation. Approaching it with all the skepticism of a reporter, Harris checked out the neurological research and learned that meditation was being used in the corporate and military arenas to heighten focus and clarity. After going on a meditation retreat, he ultimately found the balance he sought between ambition and inner peace. In this brave, completely engaging, and often hilarious book, Harris achieves his aim of demystifying meditation. --Vanessa Bush --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Startling, provocative, and often very funny . . . [10% HAPPIER] will convince even the most skeptical reader of meditation’s potential. (Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project) 10% HAPPIER is hands down the best book on meditation for the uninitiated, the skeptical, or the merely curious. . . . an insightful, engaging, and hilarious tour of the mind’s darker corners and what we can do to find a bit of peace. (Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence and Focus) The science supporting the health benefits of meditation continues to grow as does the number of Americans who count themselves as practitioners but, it took reading 10% HAPPIER to make me actually want to give it a try. (Richard E. Besser, M.D., Chief Health and Medical Editor, ABC News) An enormously smart, clear-eyed, brave-hearted, and quite personal look at the benefits of meditation that offers new insights as to how this ancient practice can help modern lives while avoiding the pitfall of cliché. This is a book that will help people, simply put. (Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love) This brilliant, humble, funny story shows how one man found a way to navigate the non-stop stresses and demands of modern life and back to humanity by finally learning to sit around doing nothing. (Colin Beavan, author of No Impact Man) In 10% Happier, Dan Harris describes in fascinating detail the stresses of working as a news correspondent and the relief he has found through the practice of meditation. This is an extremely brave, funny, and insightful book. Every ambitious person should read it. (Sam Harris, author of The End of Faith) A compellingly honest, delightfully interesting, and at times heart-warming story of one highly intelligent man’s life-changing journey towards a deeper understanding of what makes us our very best selves. As Dan’s meditation practice deepens, I look forward to him being at least 11% happier, or more. (Chade-Meng Tan, author of Search Inside Yourself) 10% Happier is a spiritual adventure from a master storyteller. Mindfulness can make you happier. Read this to find out how. (George Stephanopoulos) Part-science, part-memoir, and part self-help, Harris outlines specific ways he learned to, well, chill the f#%k out. (GQ) A self-help guide even skeptics will embrace . . . Harris crushes stereotypes about meditation and recounts how it slashed his stress and quieted his anxious mind. (Parade) Revealing . . . I’d recommend this to anyone. (USA Today, Pop Candy) Harris never loses his sense of humor as he affably spotlights one man’s quest for internal serenity while concurrently navigating the slings and arrows of a hard-won career in the contemporary media spotlight. Friendly, practical advocacy for the power of mindfulness and enlightenment. (Kirkus) Harris’s journey of discovery brought back lessons for all of us about our lives, too. (Diane Sawyer) Lively . . . part reporting, part personal experience . . . By letting us hear the voice in his head - before and after he starts meditating—Harris makes a convincing case that if he can do it, we can, too. (Richmond Times-Dispatch) Nightline co-anchor Dan Harris is an unlikely ambassador for mindfulness, but his new book . . . might be just the thing that gets people to unplug and recognize that all this multitasking is making us miserable and unhealthy.

Super Genes: Unlock the Astonishing Power of Your DNA for Optimum Health and Well-Being “In Super Genes, Drs. Deepak Chopra and Rudolph Tanzi illustrate the interplay of nature and nurture using cutting edge genetic
305
$11.99 USD

“In Super Genes, Drs. Deepak Chopra and Rudolph Tanzi illustrate the interplay of nature and nurture using cutting edge genetic science and argue persuasively that adapting one’s lifestyle can maximize the potential to transcend the inherited susceptibilities handed down to us from our parents." –James Gusella, Ph.D., Director, Center for Human Genetic Research Harvard Medical School “Once thought to be the domain of genes, the control of health and behavior is now dynamically linked to the environment, and more importantly, our perception of the environment. Super Genes, by Deepak Chopra and Rudy Tanzi, is a paradigm-shattering synthesis of epigenetic science that offers an easy-to-understand explanation of the mechanisms by which consciousness and environment control our genetic activity. Drs. Chopra and Tanzi’s contribution is a valuable resource that empowers us to become the masters of our fate rather than the ‘victims’ of our heredity.” –Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., Epigenetic scientist and bestselling author of The Biology of Belief, Spontaneous Evolution and The Honeymoon Effect "The concept that biology is destiny is one of the most pathological and toxic exaggerations to emerge during the entire scientific era. This hard-core materialistic view has been a kind of psychological enslavement that has pushed many people into nihilism and despair. In Super Genes, Drs. Deepak Chopra and Rudolph E. Tanzi discuss new evidence that our genes are not our masters, but they respond in large measure to our choices and behaviors. The resulting view honors not just the body but mind and spirit as well—a vision that is as bright and hopeful as the old view was morbid and depressing. Super Genes is an important book. It will empower anyone who reads it, because it expands our view of what it means to be human." –Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters "Super Genes demolishes the myth that our genes determine our fate. Deepak Chopra and Rudy Tanzi explain in breathtaking detail the magic of how our diet, lifestyle, our thoughts and even our gut bacteria or microbiome "talk" to our genes, regulating which genes get turned on or off, or turned up or down influencing every aspect of our health. This is essential reading for anyone interested in turning on their health, weight loss, happiness and longevity genes!" –Mark Hyman, MD, Director, Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller, The Blood Sugar Solution. “We used to think everything about us was either our genetics or our environment. But in Super Genes, Deepak Chopra and Rudi Tanzi adeptly teach us that it’s all about both—how tightly they are intertwined. And what we can do about it.” –Eric Topol, MD, author The Patient Will See You Now, Professor of Genomics, The Scripps Research Institute “Flawlessly weaving together the complicated science of genetics with the touching stories of very real people, my friends Deepak and Rudolph have written a book that you won’t put down. You will find yourself scribbling furious notes, and sharing your new wisdom with the people you love. First they gave us all the ability to have Super Brains, and now they have done the same with our Super Genes.” –Sanjay Gupta, MD, Neurosurgeon and author of Chasing Life, Cheating Death and Monday Mornings "A ground breaking and eye-opening account of recent discoveries in two new fields - epigenetics and microbiomics - weaved with practical insights to optimize our own wellness and longevity. Rudy Tanzi and Deepak Chopra, renowned pioneers in their respective fields, have written one of the most important health books of the year." –Murali Doraiswamy MD, Professor of Psychiatry and Medicine, Duke University “Super Genes will take you on an exciting journey of discovery about the ways genetic expression can be modified by simple lifestyle changes and even by how you use your mind. The essential message of this important book is that your genes alone do not determine your destiny. You can learn how to influence them to enjoy better health and optimum well-being. I recommend it.” –Andrew Weil, MD, author, Healthy Aging and Spontaneous Happiness “Our genes are a predisposition, but they are not our fate. The biological mechanisms that affect our health and well-being are often extraordinarily dynamic—for better and for worse. When we eat well, move more, stress less, and love more, our bodies often have a remarkable ability to transform and heal. Super Genes is a superb contribution to our growing knowledge that mind, brain, genome, and microbiome can act as a single system. Drs. Chopra and Tanzi continue to make pioneering contributions that are bringing integrative medicine into the mainstream. Highly recommended!” –Dean Ornish, M.D., Founder and President, Preventive Medicine Research Institute Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco “Genetics is a two-way street. Drs. Chopra and Tanzi show how the mind can tell the genes to heal the body .” –Stuart Hameroff, M.D., Banner-University Medical Center, The University of Arizona About the Author DEEPAK CHOPRA MD, FACP, member of Oprah's SuperSoul 100, founder of The Chopra Foundation, and co-founder of The Chopra Center for Wellbeing is a world-renowned pioneer in integrative medicine and personal transformation. He is the author of more than 80 books translated into over 43 languages, including numerous New York Times bestsellers.

Review Praise for The Gene Therapy Plan “A guide to harnessing the power hidden in food to subvert a ‘genetic predisposition for disease.’ . . . Gaynor’s informative tome is worth reading.” —Publishers Weekly “The Gene Therapy Plan identifies how the lives we lead, and in particular, the foods and nutritional supplements we ingest, are a key determining factor in whether latent disease (which most people have to some degree) materialize or stay dormant. By identifying researched nutritional protocols that target specific conditions, and by providing a range of rich case studies from his practice as a leading oncologist and internist, Dr. Gaynor provides insight and an action plan into how the body operates that will benefit medical practitioners and patients alike.” —Deepak Chopra, M.D. “The Human Genome Project promised to create a new era of genetic medicine, new drugs, and therapies to advance human health. But the real awakening has been the understanding of food—real whole foods, herbs, phytonutrients—as medicine and how it can literally upgrade your biologic software by improving the expression of your genes. In The Gene Therapy Plan Dr. Gaynor makes the healthcare of the future available to you today. If you want to learn how to use food and nutrients to prevent and even reverse most chronic disease, read this book!” —Mark Hyman, M.D., Director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Blood Sugar Solution “The Gene Therapy Plan is a comprehensive and practical approach to the science of epigenetics—and how to apply it to your life right now. This book is a godsend that could save your life.” —Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of the New York Times bestseller Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom “A brilliant and important piece of work from one of our most distinguished and creative medical thinkers. Do yourself and your family a huge favor: Read this phenomenally important book and learn why and how you can live a healthier life.” —Devra Davis, Ph.D., M.P.H., founder and president of the Environmental Health Trust, author of The Secret History of the War on Cancer “Dr. Gaynor is a visionary healer. This is a comprehensive, coherent, practical, and easily digestible resource for all who wish to ‘tip the balance’ away from disease toward health and wellness.” —Sheldon Marc Feldman, M.D., Vivian L. Milstein Associate Professor of Clinical Surgery, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons “Dr. Gaynor presents a comprehensive strategy for readers to re-orient their diet and lifestyle using everyday activities that can help one live longer, and live better. With The Gene Therapy Plan, Dr. Gaynor brings his own integrative philosophy and practice to readers in an engaging and actionable way.” —William Li, M.D., president and medical director of The Angiogenesis Foundation “Dr. Gaynor has and always will be at the forefront of integrative medicine.

Who's Your Caddy?: Looping for the Great, Near Great, and Reprobates of Golf To really know someone, as the saying goes, you must walk a mile in their shoes. But to really understand a golfer, you've
753
$8.95 USD

To really know someone, as the saying goes, you must walk a mile in their shoes. But to really understand a golfer, you've got to work as their caddy. Sports Illustrated columnist Rick Reilly managed to get some very intriguing golfers to let him lug their bag and write what he learned both about the game and the folks who play it. Going hole to hole with them let Reilly know a different side of veterans such as John Daly, David Duval, Tom Lehman, and Jack Nicklaus. But Reilly also went beyond the pros to caddy for Deepak Chopra, Donald Trump, professional gambler Dewey Tomko, and Bob Newhart. In some cases, the portraits that emerge fall directly in line with the popular image but at other times it's just the opposite. Daly is sober but has shifted his addiction to massive amounts of Diet Coke, candy, and marriages; Duval is intensely driven during rounds but surprisingly laid back and friendly off the course; Chopra's inner peace is locked in a mortal battle with the inherent frustrations of golf; and Trump manages to be both an egomaniac and a pretty nice fellow. And although he's on assignment to profile his temporary employers, Reilly emerges as an entertaining figure in his own right as he commits numerous faux pas, breaks taboos, infuriates multiple golfers and caddies, accidentally dumps all of Nicklaus's clubs onto the turf in the middle of a round, and discovers that caddying is tougher than it looks. Reilly walks a nice line with the tone of Who's Your Caddy?: it's reverent to the game without becoming a misty-eyed poetic ode, and it's laugh-out-loud funny without being nasty or low brow. And while golf fans will certainly appreciate it, Who's Your Caddy? is an impressive book for fans of biography in general. --John Moe --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. From Publishers Weekly Hilarious misadventures, catty gossip and downright embarrassing facts are only part of the appeal of this deftly written journal by Sports Illustrated writer Reilly (Missing Links). Caddying for a golf pro just might be every amateur golfer's dream. Reilly managed to talk 11 players, media personalities and one infamous gambler into letting him follow them inside the ropes, even though he had no experience as a caddy and showed that fact so many times that John Daly nicknamed him "Dumbshit." Consider spilling Jack Nicklaus's clubs out onto the wet ground, just as he asks you for a new ball. Or leaving David Duval's golf clubs in the locker room overnight (the ones he won the British Open with) and not being able to find them the next morning. Self-help guru Deepak Chopra recently took up the game and proved that although he may be able to control the aging process, hitting driver is beyond his mystical powers. Reilly gets serious while carrying Casey Martin's bag, the pro golfer who sued the PGA Tour for the right to ride a golf cart during tournaments (Martin suffers from a rare leg disorder that makes every step excruciatingly painful). Billionaire Donald Trump, comedian Bob Newhart, beautiful LPGA pro Jill McGill, Tom Lehman (there's a "Jimmy Stewart decency about him"), legendary gambler Dewey Tomko and blind golfer Bob Andrews round out the field and provide Reilly ample inspiration for a truly funny, don't-miss read. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

C Programming FAQs: Frequently Asked Questions C Programming FAQs contains more than 400 frequently asked questions about C, accompanied by definitive answers. Although this
752

C Programming FAQs contains more than 400 frequently asked questions about C, accompanied by definitive answers. Although this resource contains lots of useful information, it is more of a grab bag of questions and answers than a comprehensive reference. From the Inside Flap Preface At some point in 1979, I heard a lot of people talking about this relatively new language, C, and the book which had just come out about it. I bought a copy of K&R, otherwise known as The C Programming Language, by Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie, but it sat on my shelf for a while because I didn't have an immediate need for it (besides which I was busy being a college freshman at the time). It proved in the end to be an auspicious purchase, though, because when I finally did take it up, I never put it down: I've been programming in C ever since. In 1983, I came across the Usenet newsgroup net.lang.c, which was (and its successor comp.lang.c still is) an excellent place to learn a lot more about C, and to find out what questions everyone else is having about C, and to discover that you may not know all there is to know about C after all. It seems that C, despite its apparent simplicity, has a number of decidedly non-obvious aspects, and certain questions come up over and over again. This book is a collection of some of those questions, with answers, based on the Frequently-Asked Questions ("FAQ") list which I began posting to comp.lang.c in May, 1990. I hasten to add, however, that this book is not intended as a critique or "hatchet job" on the C language. It is all too easy to blame a language (or any tool) for the difficulties its users encounter with it, or to claim that a properly-designed tool "ought" to prevent its users from misusing it. It would therefore be easy to regard a book like this, with its long lists of misuses, as a litany of woes attempting to show that the language is hopelessly deficient. Nothing could be farther from the case. I would never have learned enough about C to be able to write this book, and I would not be attempting to make C more pleasant for others to use by writing this book now, if I did not think that C was a great language or if I did not enjoy programming in it. I do like C, and one of the reasons that I teach classes in it and spend time participating in discussion about it on the Internet is that I would like to discover which aspects of C (or of programming in general) are difficult to learn or keep people from being able to program efficiently and effectively. This book represents some of what I've learned: these questions are certainly some of the ones people have the most trouble with, and the answers have been refined over a several-year period in an attempt to ensure that people don't have too much trouble with them. A reader will certainly have trouble if there are any errors in these answers, and although the reviewers and I have worked hard to eliminate them, it can be as hard to eradicate the last error from a large manuscript as it is to stamp out the last bug in a program. I will appreciate any corrections or suggestions sent to me in care of the publisher or at the e-mail address below, and I would like to offer the customary $1.00 reward to the first finder of any error. If you have access to the Internet, you can check for an errata list (and a scorecard of the finders) at the ftp and http addresses mentioned in question 20.40. As I hope I've made clear, this book is not a critique of the C Programming language, nor is it a critique of the book from which I first learned C, nor of that book's authors. I didn't just learn C from K&R; I also learned a lot about programming. As I contemplate my own contribution to the C programming literature, my only regret is that the present book does not live up to a nice observation made in the second edition of K&R, namely that "C is not a big language, and it is not well served by a big book." I hope that those who most deeply appreciate C's brevity and precision (and that of K&R) will not be too offended by the fact that this book says some things over and over and over, or in three slightly different ways. Though my name is on the cover, there are a lot of people behind this book, and it's hard to know where to start handing out acknowledgments. In a sense, every one of comp.lang.c's readers (today estimated at 320,000) is a contributor: the FAQ list behind this book was written for comp.lang.c first, and this book retains the flavor of a good comp.lang.c discussion. This book also retains, I hope, the philosophy of correct C programming which I began learning when I started reading net.lang.c. Therefore, I shall first acknowledge the posters who stand out in my mind as having most clearly and consistently articulated that philosophy: Doug Gwyn, Guy Harris, Karl Heuer, Henry Spencer, and Chris Torek. These gentlemen have displayed remarkable patience over the years, answering endless questions with generosity and wisdom. I was the one who stuck his neck out and started writing the Frequent questions down, but I would hate to give the impression that the answers are somehow mine. I was once the student (I believe it was Guy who answered my post asking essentially the present volume's question 5.10), and I owe a real debt to the masters who went before me. This book is theirs as much as mine, though I retain title to any inadequacies or mistakes I've made in the presentation. The former on-line FAQ list grew by a factor of three in the process of becoming this book, and its growth was a bit rapid and awkward at times. Mark Brader, Vinit Carpenter, Stephen Clamage, Jutta Degener, Doug Gwyn, Karl Heuer, Joseph Kent, and George Leach read proposals or complete drafts and helped to exert some control over the process; I thank them for their many careful suggestions and corrections. Their efforts grew out of a shared wish to improve the overall understanding of C in the programming community. I appreciate their dedication. Three of those reviewers have also been long-time contributors to the on-line FAQ list. I thank Jutta Degener and Karl Heuer for their help over the years, and I especially thank Mark Brader, who has been my most persistent critic ever since I first began posting the comp.lang.c FAQ list five years ago. I don't know how he has had the stamina to make as many suggestions and corrections as he has, and to overcome my continuing stubborn refusal to agree with some of them, even though (as I eventually understood) they really were improvements. You can thank Mark for the form of many of this book's explanations, and blame me for mangling any of them. Additional assorted thanks: to Susan Cyr for the cover art; to Bob Dinse and Eskimo North for providing the network access which is particularly vital to a project like this; to Bob Holland for providing the computer on which I've done most of the writing; to Pete Keleher for the Alpha text editor; to the University of Washington Mathematics Research and Engineering libraries for access to their collections; and to the University of Washington Oceanography department for letting me borrow their tape drives to access my dusty old archives of Usenet postings. Thanks to Tanmoy Bhattacharya for the example in question 11.10, to Arjan Kenter for the code in question 13.7, to Tomohiko Sakamoto for the code in question 20.31, and to Roger Miller for the line in question 11.35. Thanks to all these people, all over the world, who have contributed to the FAQ list in various ways, by offering suggestions, corrections, constructive criticism, or other support: Jamshid Afshar, David Anderson, Tanner Andrews, Sudheer Apte, Joseph Arceneaux, Randall Atkinson, Rick Beem, Peter Bennett, Wayne Berke, Dan Bernstein, John Bickers, Gary Blaine, Yuan Bo, Dave Boutcher, Michael Bresnahan, Vincent Broman, Stan Brown, Joe Buehler, Kimberley Burchett, Gordon Burditt, Burkhard Burow, Conor P.

I have tried to keep track of everyone whose suggestions I have used, but I fear I've probably overlooked a few; my apologies to anyone whose name should be on this list, but isn't. Finally, I'd like to thank my editor at Addison-Wesley, Debbie Lafferty, for tapping me on the electronic shoulder one day and asking if I might be interested in writing this book. I was, and you now hold it, and I hope that it may help to make C programming as pleasant for you as it is for me. Steve Summit scs@aw.com Seattle, Washington 0201845199P04062001
