Memoir of a Slightly Mad Mystic: How Dying Saved My Life

Lawrence Furman

Memoir of a Slightly Mad Mystic: How Dying Saved My Life by Lawrence Furman

Memoir of a Slightly Mad Mystic is the fascinating story of a midwestern boy who began having out of body journeys when he was nine years old. But the freedom and joy those flights provided faded when he began sinking into a quagmire of mental illness. After he was tossed into the antiseptic world of drugs, electroshock, and enforced isolation that was the 1960s mental health care system, his condition only worsened. Trapped as he was between wildfires raging in his head and a narrow-minded version of therapy, a cure seemed out of the question

Reporting on Hitler: Rothay Reynolds and the British Press in Nazi Germany

Reporting on Hitler: Rothay Reynolds and the British Press in Nazi Germany by Will Wainewright

Allegedly the only man capable of holding the Führer's intense gaze, Rothay Reynolds was a leading foreign correspondent between the wars and ran the Daily Mail's bureau in Berlin throughout the 1920s and 1930s. The enigmatic former clergyman was one of the first journalists to interview Adolf Hitler, meeting the future Führer days before the Munich Putsch.

While the awful realities of the Third Reich were becoming apparent on the ground in Germany, in Britain the Daily Mail continued to support the Nazi regime. Reynolds's time as a foreign correspondent in Nazi Germany provides some startling...

John Keats from Fool to Fulfilment by D. W. PrykePart biography, part history, part literary commentary, this detailed account of the poetic development of John Keats takes the reader from the poet's early childhood to the months just before his death. The setting is late October 1820, when Keats, having sailed to Italy in the hope the warmer climate would improve his failing health, had to endure 10 days' strict quarantine in the Bay of Naples before being allowed to disembark. Those ten days provide the timescale for this narrative in which the young poet looks back on his life and traces his emergence as the "youth elect", the chosen one...

Most of us spend our lives talking ourselves out of things. But what could you accomplish if you never held yourself back?

What if, despite your fears, you went for broke every time?

You might live a life as extraordinary as the one Stanley Weiss has lived for nearly a century.

A skinny Jewish kid from Philadelphia training to fight and likely die in the U.S. invasion of Japan in 1945, Stanley Weiss came home to the death of his loving but weak father, who left his mother penniless. Vowing on the spot not to let his insecurities limit him as they had his father, Weiss pledged that his...

Becoming Leonardo: An Exploded View of the Life of Leonardo da Vinci by Mike LankfordWhy did Leonardo Da Vinci leave so many of his major works uncompleted? Why did this resolute pacifist build war machines for the notorious Borgias? Why did he carry the Mona Lisa with him everywhere he went for decades, yet never quite finish it? Why did he write backwards, and was he really at war with Michelangelo? And was he gay?

In a book unlike anything ever written about the Renaissance genius, Mike Lankford explodes every cliché about Da Vinci and then reconstructs him based on a rich trove of available evidence

Richard Nixon: The Life

John A. Farrell

Richard Nixon: The Life by John A. FarrellBrilliantly researched, authoritatively crafted by a prize-winning biographer, and lively on the page, this is the Nixon we've been waiting for.

Richard Nixon opens with young Navy lieutenant "Nick" Nixon returning from the Pacific and setting his cap at Congress, an idealistic dreamer seeking to build a better world. Yet amid the turns of that now legendary 1946 campaign, Nixon's finer attributes quickly gave way to unapologetic ruthlessness. It is a stunning overture to John A. Farrell's magisterial portrait of a man who embodied postwar American cynicism.
Within four years of that first win,...

Practice Matters: the Early Years of Modern General Practice within the NHS

Practice Matters: the Early Years of Modern General Practice within the NHS by Andrew Willis

The UK National Health Service is always in crisis, yet it has been shown, time and time again, that the public value it more highly than anything else in British society. This book is a good news story about the service, and in particular, about its core - its 7 000 general practices.

Between 1974 and 2006 UK general practice underwent an astonishing evolution, moving from the baggage train of the NHS to become its vital, influential spearhead. The book explains how and why these changes came about. It is the first such account written by a GP whose career spanned that time, and who writes in...
