  • He solves the mysteries of unexplained or sudden death.

    He has performed over 23,000 autopsies, including some of the most high-profile cases of recent times; the Hungerford Massacre, the Princess Diana inquiry, and 9/11.

    He has faced serial killers, natural disaster, ‘perfect murders’ and freak accidents.

    His evidence has put killers behind bars, freed the innocent, and turned open-and-shut cases on their heads.

    Yet all this has come at a huge personal cost.

    Unnatural Causes tells the story of not only the cases and bodies that have haunted him the most, but also how to live a life steeped in death.

  • Have you ever wondered where in the world did some test makers come up with impossible to answer questions? Well from the latest literature ofcourse. That’s how they can separate the average from the exemplary student. The review books in Nuclear Medicine and Nuclear Radiology focus on the ‘basics’ or the ‘core’ of the material hoping that if you can get the easy questions out of the way then at least you’ll be average. That’s great! No shame in being average. If you do have time and want to strengthen your core knowledge while preparing to beat the curve, then pick up this book. Doesn’t matter if you’re a medical student, a resident, technologist, or someone from a cross discipline. If you are interested in Nuclear Medicine, then you may find value in the teachings of this book. This is a high-yield review book in the form of discussion points to clarify different concepts in Nuclear Medicine and Nuclear Radiology that are commonly seen and tested. This book should be used to supplement the basic textbooks and is best read after at least some exposure to Nuclear Medicine. The chosen topics are based on the recommendation of the governing bodies for certification and from expert colleagues in the field. The size of the book is also importantly made so that you can hold it with one hand, put it in your coat pocket and keep it on your person. If you already own an e-reader, then you’re in luck. This title is also available in the kindle store.

  • The bestselling real life story of a hapless junior doctor, based on his columns written anonymously for the Telegraph.

    IF YOU’RE GOING to be ill, it’s best to avoid the first Wednesday in August. 
    This is the day when junior doctors graduate to their first placements and begin to face having to put into practice what they have spent the last six years learning.

    Starting on the evening before he begins work as a doctor, this book charts Max Pemberton’s touching and funny journey through his first year in the NHS. Progressing from youthful idealism to frank bewilderment, Max realises how little his job is about ‘saving people’ and how much of his time is taken up by signing forms and trying to figure out all the important things no one has explained yet — for example, the crucial question of how to tell whether someone is dead or not.

    Along the way, Max and his fellow fledgling doctors grapple with the complicated questions of life, love, mental health and how on earth to make time to do your laundry.

    All Creatures Great and Small meets Bridget Jones’s Diary, this is a humorous and accessible peek into a world which you’d normally need a medical degree to witness.

    If you enjoy Trust Me, I’m a (Junior) Doctor, don’t miss the follow-up titles Where Does It Hurt? and The Doctor Will See You Now.

  • Be ready. Be seated. See what courage sounds like. See how brave it is to reveal yourself in this way. But above all, see what it is to still live, to profoundly influence the lives of others after you are gone, by your words –Abraham Verghese, foreword to When Breath Becomes Air

    An intimate and exquisitely written meditation on the meaning of life by a young neurosurgeon facing terminal cancer. Dr. Paul Kalanithi wrote When Breath Becomes Air in the last 22 months of his life.

    The result is an inspirational account of family, medicine and literature, on publication swiftly finding an audience of booksellers moved by its gradual shift from hope to Kalanithi’s dignified acceptance of life’s end. We strongly recommend the emotional investment to read it.

  • At the age of thirty-six, on the verge of completing a decade’s worth of training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. One day he was a doctor treating the dying, and the next he was a patient struggling to live. And just like that, the future he and his wife had imagined evaporated. When Breath Becomes Air chronicles Kalanithi’s transformation from a naïve medical student “possessed,” as he wrote, “by the question of what, given that all organisms die, makes a virtuous and meaningful life” into a neurosurgeon at Stanford working in the brain, the most critical place for human identity, and finally into a patient and new father confronting his own mortality.

  • This seminal book, which has been called “one of the outstanding contributions to psychological thought” by Carl Rogers and “one of the great books of our time” by Harold Kushner, has been translated into more than fifty languages and sold over sixteen million copies. “An enduring work of survival literature,” according to the New York Times, Viktor Frankl’s riveting account of his time in the Nazi concentration camps, and his insightful exploration of the human will to find meaning in spite of the worst adversity, has offered solace and guidance to generations of readers since it was first published in 1946. At the heart of Frankl’s theory of logotherapy (from the Greek word for “meaning”) is a conviction that the primary human drive is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but rather the discovery and pursuit of what the individual finds meaningful. Today, as new generations face new challenges and an ever more complex and uncertain world, Frankl’s classic work continues to inspire us all to find significance in the very act of living, in spite of all obstacles.

    A must-read companion to this classic work, a new, never-before-published work by Frankl entitled Yes to Life: In Spite of Everything, is now available in English.

  • New York Times Bestseller

    COVID-19 is speeding up history, but how? What is the shape of the world to come?

    Lenin once said, “There are decades when nothing happens and weeks when decades happen.” This is one of those times when history has sped up. CNN host and best-selling author Fareed Zakaria helps readers to understand the nature of a post-pandemic world: the political, social, technological, and economic consequences that may take years to unfold. Written in the form of ten “lessons,” covering topics from natural and biological risks to the rise of “digital life” to an emerging bipolar world order, Zakaria helps readers to begin thinking beyond the immediate effects of COVID-19. Ten Lessons for a Post-Pandemic World speaks to past, present, and future, and, while urgent and timely, is sure to become an enduring reflection on life in the early twenty-first century.

  • Trauma is a fact of life. Veterans and their families deal with the painful aftermath of combat; one in five Americans has been molested; one in four grew up with alcoholics; one in three couples have engaged in physical violence. Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, one of the world’s foremost experts on trauma, has spent over three decades working with survivors. In The Body Keeps the Score, he uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. He explores innovative treatments—from neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yoga—that offer new paths to recovery by activating the brain’s natural neuroplasticity. Based on Dr. van der Kolk’s own research and that of other leading specialists, The Body Keeps the Score exposes the tremendous power of our relationships both to hurt and to heal—and offers new hope for reclaiming lives
