            In his sophomore year of college, Mark Zuckerberg created a simple website to serve as a campus social network. But the site caught on like wildfire, and soon students nationwide were on Facebook. Today, Facebook is nearly unrecognizable from Zuckerberg's first, modest iteration.... It has grown into a tech giant, the largest social media platform and one of the most gargantuan companies in the world with over 2.23 billion global users. Love it or hate it, there is no denying the power and omnipresence of Facebook in daily life. And in light of growing scandals surrounding election-influencing 'fake news' accounts, the mining of its users' personal data, and growing discontent with the actions of its founder and CEO, never has the company been more central to the international conversation.

            Our health care system is sick. We live in an era of factory style medicine, spiralling costs, complex and chronic conditions, and doctors at the heart of it under pressure as never before. Witnessing worrying burnout in her doctor husband, Lucy Mayes went on a quest to find out ...what is really going on behind the scenes in medicine. Lucy asked doctors on the front lines how they make meaning in their work, what quality medicine looks like to them, and what their hopes are for the future of medicine. What emerged were consistent messages about elements of practice that the culture and systems of medicine still struggle to understand and support: the power of humanism; compassion; listening; the therapeutic relationship; preventative care; the doctors' own wellbeing journey; and mind-body plus other holistic understandings of health and healing. Beyond the Stethoscope will leave readers shocked, moved and inspired by the struggles, wisdom and insights of those who sit before them in that most ancient and intimate of humanist exchanges: that of the doctor and patient.

            A unique insight into the mind of one of the world's most extraordinary thinkers. Undoubtedly the most famous scientist on the planet and the very face of physics over the last half-century, Stephen Hawking is remarkable for many reasons. Not least because he has continued to str...ive to achieve so much while being hindered by debilitating illness. He has demonstrated categorically that if you put your mind to it, you can achieve anything, no matter your physical state. Of course, it helps if you happen to possess a mind such as his. His work on black holes put him on the map, and he became globally famous for his A Brief History of Time, communicating the most difficult scientific ideas at a period when he'd lost the ability to speak. How to Think Like Stephen Hawking reveals the key motivations, desires and philosophies that make Hawking one of the world's most enduring talents. Studying how he overcame great adversity, fought his demons as well as his detractors and looked back to the origins of the universe, and with quotes and passages by and about him, you too can learn to think like the man who claims he can think in eleven dimensions. Other books in the series include: How to Think Like Sherlock, How to Think Like Churchill and How to Think Like Steve Jobs

This was high sta...kes detective work where answers could be life-changing. The young doctor who relished the intellectual puzzle soon became even more intrigued by the human stories behind each set of symptoms. And he found his own character tested.

It includes gripping accounts of his patients - encounters that are, by turn, moving, dramatic and funny - and using simple and illuminating language he explains well-known conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and motor neurone disease. In addition, he reflects candidly on his life and the reasons he, a doctor's son, went into medicine and what he has learned about himself along the way. With great honesty, he scrutinizes his own actions and reactions so that Just One More Question becomes a brave exploration of the big question - how can I be a better doctor?Dr. Tubridy's book is an extraordinary and revealing insight into the human challenge of working in this most complex area of medicine.
