2-0 out of 5 stars Dissapointingly Deceiving
If you are in search of an autobiography of a dedicated and intrinsically emotional scientist, then this is the book for you.However, if truly interested in the actual neuroscience this book claims to teach, search for a more nonfictional and scientific work.Pithy factual information of such molecules of emotion is obstructed with unnecessary personal dramatics and stories loosely tied to the intended subject matter.While the book provides insight to the life of a cutting-edge scientist, the autobiographical nature obscures the supposed purport of the book: to teach the neuroscience of emotions.

5-0 out of 5 stars Molecules of Emotion
This is an outstanding book by an outstanding woman who's science has had, or should have, an enormous impact on our knowledge of what and how we really are.
5-0 out of 5 stars Thanks for scientific support!

5-0 out of 5 stars Your Lifesaver in Fluid & Electrolytes Ocean!
I purchased this book with some doubt, because you see a very high variability in these series. Now, i am very happy. Every medical student and resident gets frustrated with fliuid and electrolytes. Reading textbooks makes it worse. I have seen a lot of attendings and Nephrologists (!!) who are scared of this subject. This book can help you tremendously. It is written in a very simple language and gives you the proper approach to fluid and electrolyte problems. It is full of practical examples that you will see every day and shows you how to solve them. After reading this book, you will be confident enough to deal with electrolytes. Instead of replacing electrolytes blindly with K-Dur and Neutra-Phos and .... and not knowing what to do with Hyponatremia, you will have a nice framework in your brain to deal with them. And the best part: It is a small book. Don't hesitate to get it. You won't regret.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good but not good enough!
This book does only provide some miner basic understanding of Na, K, and acid base pathophysiology and replacement. Other e-lytes such as magnesium, calcium, phosphor and especially the interaction of those is completely missing. The acid base part is ok for getting a basic understanding of whats going on.
5-0 out of 5 stars Practically Life savor for both you and patient
I hardly anytime would give "5" stars to any products, but this just blew my doubts and misunderstanding out to pieces. I don't want to sound too explicit, but actually it's better than sex when you understand something and everything come to senses.

I have been reading Harrison's Medicine right from my residency. Its a fabulous book one can refer to as an undergraduate or postgratuate student.

Editorial Review

Mehmet Oz is a Renaissance man of cardiac care, combining yoga, aromatherapy, hypnosis, energy healing, music therapy, acupuncture, and visual imagery into his surgery practice at the Complementary Care Unit of New York City's Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. He's adamant that the relationship between traditional and alternative medicine should be symbiotic, not mutually exclusive. His patients are proof of this: when treated holistically, not as just "another transplant patient" with a plaque-addled heart, they perceive less pain during surgery and recuperation, are less likely to suffer depression, and heal more quickly.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars The Heart Can Thrive on Positive Thoughts.
Dr. Oz, the heart wizard, is of Turkish descent and attempts to combine East and West traditions of healing during post-surgery.He is a heart surgeon located in New York City.First of all,he is searching for the elusive one universal healing endeavor.Some things we all need are recommended such as Love is a major healing force, as is religious faith in one God.He is of the opinion that modern medicine is not perfect.Nothing is perfect, not even beauty, he says.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Good Combination
The view that all types of medicine (western and eastern) working together makes sense.This book seems to encorage a balance between both.I enjoyed it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Useful reference
This is an excellent concise introduction to cardiac catheterization.This book is now in its 4rth edition published in 2003 and includes a wealth of material on the basics of this field.650 pages encompass 10 chapters on topics such as arterial and venous acess, hemodynamic data, angiographic data, EP studies and ablation, research techniques, special techniques, high-risk cardiac catheterization, and interventional techniques.The book includes specific, how-to information.However, this short text is not intended to fully teach such advanced techniques as catheter ablation or interventional cardiology. Very useful tables and clear diagrams are included (496 illustrations).
3-0 out of 5 stars This is a essential reference, but
I have been a cath labo nurse for 3 months.This is a nice book for cath labo staff like me, but there isn't so many figure enough to understand coronary anatomy in angiography and electorophysic study.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Cath Lab Staple
The cardiac catheterization handbook is the essential reference for the cardiac cath lab. The book covers a wide range of topics including the cath lab organization, hemodynamics, electrophysiology, angiography and interventions. There are some great diagrams that compare catheter shape and radiographic views which are very helpful for those new to cath lab. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars a life-changing read
This is the most amazing nutrition book I've ever read- and I've read many. The amount of data, the photographs, the anecdotes, all point to an obvious conclusion. I am simply shocked that his work is not better known. After reading this book I understand why the health of so many in the world today is so poor. This book provides all the answers. I know with absolute certainty now what constitutes a healthy diet. This book will fascinate you, educate you, and leave you feeling shocked. HIGHLY recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Answer to our Dietary and Health Confusion
One day we are told that fats are bad and that we must avoid them at all costs.Next we are told that carbs are the enemy.The experts cannot seem to make up their minds on which individual foods are good for you and which are bad.If all else fails, they fall back on the need for "moderation".Wouldn't it be nice if there were some really rock-solid nutritional research one could rely upon?Wouldn't it be comforting if we had research more compelling than "Food X just might raise your blood cholesterol a bit, and if that happens you just might be at a slightly higher risk for getting heart disease?"
5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing! The book anyone should read that cares about their health!
The single most important book ever written on diet. Thank goodness Dr. Price did his investigations when he did. I am finishing my PhD in holistic nutrition and this is the most important book I have read in my studies. Get it, read it and understand it! Then eat like our ancestors ate! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A great cookbook for everyone!
I originally bought this book because my father had cancer and I am not the best cook. However, I use it all the time now for my entire family. They love the recipes and they are quick and easy to prepare.
2-0 out of 5 stars Be careful with this approach
If you subscribe to the view that cancer diets should focus on low fat, low sugar, and food that maintains low blood glucose levels this is a book to avoid. Receipes frequently used all purpose flour, refined sugar, powdered sugar, white potatoes, and margarine.People who have read and accept the principlesin "What To Eat If You Have Cancer" will find this cookbook difficult to use without careful receipe selection and ingredient substitution.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous and "A Must Have" Just what the Dr. Ordered
I recently purchased this book for my dad. The side effects of cancer are so grueling. This book is organized for quick access in the first few pages with all of the recipes categorized by symptom or side effects a person may be having.Also gives great menu ideas. It gives clear advice on what to do to use food as a FUEL for the FIRE to FIGHT the cancer. Very organized, sprial bound, easy to read and the recipes are great.I would recommend this book to ANYONE going through cancer.Also great for the caregiver to know too. ... Read more

Bradle's nicp is certainly the most complete refere I've ever known. Why? Because if you want a information about any neurological disease, you find it, with deeper aproach than other books. Good text.
3-0 out of 5 stars A letdown....
Any large 2 volume reference text certainly looks impressive.But, unfortunately, NICP is only superficially attractive.I have used this as a reference many times and have closed the book without gaining any satisfactory answers.Considering it's size and price, NICP is a huge letdown.The online subscription service is costly, but at least it gets continuously updated and has videos to boot.

5-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars, not for believing this , but for the choice;
Yes, much of Clark's work seems extreme, perhaps if mainstream medicine was a little more intellectually honest, we wouldn't need to go so far off the 'course'. For instance; When early detection is credited for longer lives, consider that in most cases, all of the 'extended' life is the time that the test was moved up,(if you took the test a year sooner, you lived an 'extra' year), ie; no real increase. Consider that many medical tests,(biopsies and mammographies), actually force open 'scar'-sealed cancer cells that never would've entered the bloodstream if left alone. Consider that many types of cancer are known by your doctor to kill you at the same point in your painful chemo and radiation treatments as you would've died , without pain, if not treated at all, yet they do their best to keep that fact unknown to their patients. Consider how the medical establishment at large claim that diet has minimal effect on helping patients,(have you ever eaten hospital food)? Ifphysicians want us to stop patronizing the 'kooks', then they had better start learning, and passing on, the truth. (Add to Mr Lewandoski): You confuse the mean, median, and mode. If you remove infant deaths and deaths from formerly untreatable war injuries from the "average age" of death, the population often lived aslong as,(and in better shape than), our current 'averages', and without all the supposed help of our modern hospitals and nursing homes. There was never an historical time when the average man was simply dropping dead at thirty, unless he was shot.

1-0 out of 5 stars 1:8000 v. 1:2
In response to the eloquent review written by the esteemed, Corey F.Dyok.Sir, in your review you have proposed that the cancer rate has skyrocketed from 1:8000 to 1:2... brilliant!In a brief review of the history of cancer for the lesser informed.Cancer has been documented in the literature for over 5,000 years.Over the past 10,000 years, life expectancy remained at 30-years until the past 150 years when life expectancy dramatically rose to 70-years."During the past 150 years, there has been a progressive elimination of infectous diseases as a major cause of death, and because most children now survive to reproductive age a sudden population explosion has ensued"[Cairns, John].So, plain and simply, diseases of old age occur frequently because we now have an aged society.And the diseases of old age are cardiovascular disease and cancer. 1-0 out of 5 stars Is this lady for real?
People will believe anything.This book is full of proposperous claims, and scientifically impossible devices.The idea of a 9V battery "zapping" parasited deep in body tissues is most ridiculase.Last time I checked, the skin was quite an insulator. The book has no hard facts to back up all the claims.Where are the many people that are cured from these cancers and even HIV/AIDS.There are none, because the only diaganosis cured were tested by some hocus pocus in the quacks private practice.No medically diagonosed cases have ever been cured by this money grubbing con aritist.The book tries to generate fear about being contaminated by everyday living.The cure, send money for off the wall products and supplements with no quality control packing.If you would by the brooklin bridge, this book is for you. ...

Editorial Review

Hard, visual data make a compelling case for the existence of attention deficit disorder (ADD) in this pioneering work by Daniel G. Amen, M.D. Using a nuclear medicine technique called "single photon emission computed tomography" (SPECT)--a controversial step, according to some of his peers--Dr. Amen scans patients' brains to identify various abnormalities. From more than 8,000 such studies and more than 12,000 patient evaluations, Dr. Amen concludes that six--not the formerly presumed two--different types of ADD exist. This book encompasses the full spectrum of Dr. Amen's work: from symptom identification to clinical evaluation, to diet and medication recommendations, to everyday strategies for living with ADD (whether the reader is a parent of an ADD child, or has been diagnosed with the disease.)Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Effective diagnosis and treatment of attention deficit disorders, based on data, not dogma
Healing ADD is a very readable presentation of the scientific evidence for Attention Deficit Disorders.It contains effective treatment recommendations, based on real world clinical experience. Insightful case histories accompany SPECT brain scans of actual patients, illuminating the physical reality of the disorders and the impact of various pharmaceutical, nutritional, psychotherapy and herbal treatments.
1-0 out of 5 stars Safe, is it really?
In page xvii of the introduction, Dr. Amen writes "Stimulant medications such as Adderall, Ritalin, or Dexedrine are among the safest and most effective medications in psychiatry". That sounds reassuring until you read the article in Medical News Today (August 22, 2006) mentioning that "Dexedrine and Ritalin are drugs used to treat ADHD. The FDA announced changes to their labels, and possibly those of some other ADHD drugs, to include a warning of a risk of heart problems and psychotic behavior". That is not reassuring at all. This book is writing in an authoritative style - sort of the bible of ADHD, the book that tells you what it is, and how to go about it. The only problem is that it is flawed.
5-0 out of 5 stars Very informative
Dr. Amen did an excellant job of explaining ADHD and the brain based research that he's done in a way that's easy to read and understand.It's a great resourse for those looking to understand how the brain is affected by this disorder and the way a variety of treatments can be effective. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Theoretical Understanding
This book is a great resource for developing a theoretical understanding of narrative therapy. Specific techniques such as letter writing and certificates are described in detail. However, if you are looking for a how-to guide on narrative therapy, I would suggest "Playful approaches to serious problems: Narrative therapy with children and their families" by Freeman, J.,Epston, D., & Lobvits, D. (1997).

5-0 out of 5 stars A left hand turn in therapy (for the better).
I was surprised to read the other negative reviews of this book. This book is, after all, the text which defined the philisophical underpinning of a new way of looking at expertise in therapy.Yes, much of the book, especially the discussion of Foucault's ideas, is hard going and at times requires a second or even third read.This is not a "how to" book.It is an invitation to a way of thinking about problems and their role in a life.It is a book about the transformative value of conversations, viewpoints and relationship.This book is not for sissies, but it is brilliant.Those who want a "narrative primer" should be able to find one elsewhere.However, they will be skipping the magic of transformative thought.Michael White and David Epston have unleased the power of alternatives for those oppressed by problems and by society.An amazing read!

1-0 out of 5 stars A disappointment
I'm a professional psychotherapist. I got interested in this book after reading a recent article about how survivors of rape, torture and other violence in Sudan were being helped with brief narrative therapy. Learning about a fresh approach to a seemingly impossible therapeutic task inspired me. I decided to learn more about it. I'm afraid I didn't learn much from this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good reference, not quite what I expected
It was probably my fault for not giving the book 5 stars.I was expecting a book that would be a little easier to use in practice.This book does a really good job of giving various physical exam tests.It has lots of good pictures and other graphics.My two complaints, and what bumped this book down to a 4 instead of a 5, is that it is a little too "all over the place" with the exam.I would have preferred a book that helped me to focus.In that respect, Cooper's Pocket Guide and Hoppenfeld's physical exam book are much better.Also, I would have liked to have some treatment sections in this book.Still, all in all it's a good buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Orthopedic Exam Reference Textbook
This is the best orthopedic exam textbook I've found. It has good illustrations, is very inclusive in its content, and is well organized. You could think of it as a sort of illustrated orthopedic examination encyclopedia. It's a bit burdensome to read (and carry) because of its inclusiveness nature. So don't think you'll be carrying this one in your pocket for each exam. However, you'll be glad you have it on your shelf for reference. Great work Magee! This one is well worth purchasing. Especially if you are thinking of, or can afford, only buying one orthopedic examination reference. Lastly, don't expect treatment therapies from this book. It is purely diagnostic.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good book, not the best
I thought this was an excellent exam book.I preferred Hoppenfeld's book, though there is less info.Of all the ones I've read, the best is still Pocket Guide to Musculoskeletal Diagnosis.I think Magee's is better for a reference.Pocket Guide to MSK Dx is better for daily use. ... Read more

A great book for therapists. The origins of the PNL. For those who are not professional therapists could be a little bit too dense.

2-0 out of 5 stars intense skepticism required
I took a psych course from Bandler when he was a grad student at CMU in 68. He was quite shallow then believing in overly simplisticmodels of human behavior. I've read a number of his books and while they promise qite a bit they don't work all that well. Recall the old saying, "seek simplicity and distrust it". Be careful, this is likely to be just another dead end on your road to enlightenment ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for Family Therapists
This book explains Bowen's Extended Family Therapy Theory.This is one of the most important family systems theories in the history of family therapy and it is still one of the most widely used theories for working with families.Anyone that is studying family therapy should read this book as it is the seminal work on Bowen Therapy.Essential ideas such as triangling, emotional fusion, and intergenerational transmission are well explained.5-0 out of 5 stars Introduction to natural sytems
A rich introduction to Murray Bowen's natural systems theory.Explains relevance of the theory to clinical work with families, couples, and individuals.Also, briefly explores and contrasts the relationship ofBowen theory to sociobiology, evolutionary neurology, and analytic theory. Case illustrations are clear and helpful.Would recommend tosocialworkers, psychologist, biologists, and those interested in a naturalsystems approach to human behavior.Although strong on evaluation anddescriptions concerning emotional processes in human families and groups,there is less attention to therapy techiques.More of a book aboutthinking on relationships, than one of the clinical "how to" kindof presentations that have become standard fare in the family therapyfield.I have read through Dr. Kerr's text several times and have studiedits chapters separately.Each reread reveals additional applications andinsights into the theory.Surely, a book that can grow with you! Dr.Bowen's epilogue is an added jem in which he offers perhaps his lastwritten description of the development of the theory and his belief in therelevance of theory to the future.Personally, the book has influencedboth my private and professional life. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Grant Wiggins, Warmed-Over
I got this book after reading the reviews posted here, and found it rather disappointing. First, the authors have taken from Grant Wiggins the idea that 'authentic assessment' should include assignments that test 'real-world' skills and interpreted it *very* literally; as a result you will find many examples here from soil science, forestry and engineering, but almost nothing at all from the humanities (I teach history and found no applicable examples). Combined with this is an implicit argument that the point of education is preprofessional training; the authors embrace the idea that the student is a consumer purchasing a skill set from teacher-salesmen. On top of that, it's very clumsily written. I found this a narrow and discouraging view of student-centered learning, which at its best not only applies well to the humanities, but offers a wider perspective on the 'preprofessional' as well: missing here are the ideas of generating essential questions, any discussion of how to incorporate those into syllabus design, or a coherent bigger picture in which engaging assignments that duplicate 'real-world' work are fitted into a learning trajectory. There is, however, a fair amount of discussion of the practice of assessment techniques such as the portfolio etc., but this can also be found in books that apply to a wider range of educational topics. Readers, esp. those from the humanities, interested in learner-centered assessment *and teaching* would be better served by going straight to Wiggins instead of reading the excerpted and narrower version of his arguments presented here.

This book provides extensive information about using online environments in the classroom.It details implementations that worked, and implementations that didn't work to show how to implement online enviornments to best benefit students.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Different and Powerful Approach to Assessment
Huba and Freed bridge the gap between assessment and student-centered teaching and learning. Throughout the text the authors include reflection questions to trigger thinking and changes in mental models.While the thrust of the book is conceptual, there are many practical suggestions for implementation in areas such as learning outcomes, rubrics, and other related areas of assessment. While compatible with other treatments of assessment, this is a unique perspective. ... Read more
