Varon, Jamie, author
2022

Blending memoir, sharp social insights, and unique practical tools, author Jamie Varon is your guide to radical contentment-a satisfied life outside the bounds of societal expectations. Too many of us are waiting for our lives to begin, putting our happiness on layaway for some future version where it all lines up, when we've accomplished it all, when we have the perfect career, bodies, partners, and when our lives finally feel "good enough." But what is good enough? Who gets to decide? And when do we ever reach it? Jamie takes a sharp, incisive look at the industries that are constantly telling us to do more, be more, and keep striving, pushing, and hustling-and shows you how to radically opt out of societal conditioning. We've learned to be terrified of contentment, thinking it will lead us to complacency. Yet, being content in a world that profits off our dissatisfaction is not complacency. It's revolutionary.

Understanding the heart : surprising insights into the evolutionary origins of heart disease-and why it matters

Understanding the heart : surprising insights into the evolutionary origins of heart disease-and why it matters

Hussey, Stephen, 1986- author
2022

Heart disease is the number-one killer in the world. Despite ever-advancing medical procedures and more and more powerful pharmaceutical drugs, the rate of heart disease continues to rise. According to Dr. Stephen Hussey, this is due in part to misunderstandings about how the heart really functions and how to keep it healthy. These misunderstandings result in improper medical approaches and off-target intervention therapies. As a type 1 diabetic, Dr. Hussey has always known that he was at two to four times greater risk of developing heart disease. As a result, he has dedicated his entire adult life to understanding the heart, to prevent himself from becoming a statistic. And then his worst nightmare came true. Dr. Hussey suffered a "STEMI," a blockage in the left anterior descending artery of his heart. STEMIs are typically so fatal that they are known as "widowmakers." Only 12 percent of those who experience them outside of a hospital setting survive. Dr. Hussey was among the lucky 12 percent, but faced a difficult decision during his recovery: follow the standard of care laid out for him by the attending cardiologist, or politely decline and apply everything he'd learned about the heart to a recovery protocol that would look massively different than what the doctors were recommending. In Understanding the Heart, Dr. Hussey shares the information that guided him through the highest-stakes decision of his life, including: A large body of research suggesting that the heart is not the main mover of blood inthe body, and what that means for your overall health The evolutionary origins of the nervous system, and how these manifest today in rampant rates of heart disease Deep analysis of the widely accepted idea that saturated fat and cholesterol will clog your arteries The importance of reducing oxidative stress for a heart healthy lifestyle In Understanding the Heart, Dr. Stephen Hussey lays bare everything he has learned in his deep investigation into the heart, and guides you on a path to prevent diseasein the context of a highly diseased modern world in order to enjoy lifelong good health"-- Provided by publisher.

"A poignant and ultimately triumphant novel based on the incredible true story of children who braved the formidable danger of guarded wintry mountain passes in France to escape the Nazis. Southern France, 1942 In a remote corner of France, Jewish refugee Ella Rosenthal has finally found a safe haven. It has been three years since she and her little sister, Hanni, left their parents to flee Nazi Germany, and they have been pursued and adrift in the chaos of war ever since. Now, they shelter among a hundred other young refugees in a derelict castle overseen by the Swiss Red Cross. Swiss volunteers Rösli Näf and Anne-Marie Piguet uphold a common mission: to protect children in peril. Rösli, a stubborn and resourceful nurse, directs the colony of Château de la Hille, and she has created a thriving community against all odds. Anne-Marie, raised by Swiss foresters, becomes both caretaker and friend to the children, and she vows to do whatever is necessary to keep them safe. However, when Germany invades southern France, safeguarding Jewish refugees becomes impossible. Château de la Hille faces unrelenting danger, and Rösli and Anne-Marie realize that the only way to protect the eldest of their charges is to smuggle them out of France. Relying on Rösli's fierce will and Anne-Marie's knowledge of secret mountain paths, they plot escape routes through vast Nazi-occupied territory to the distant border. Amid staggering risk, Ella and Hanni embark on a journey that, if successful, could change the course of their lives and grant them a future"-- Provided by publisher.
