1-0 out of 5 stars Proberly the worst book I have efter tried to read.
I am a medical student in Denmark.
We are forces to use this book, and I don't understand why.
The build up of the book is unstructurial, it contains a lot of errors, and in the chapter about immunopathology, the auther makes a complete mess of the immunsystem, with in two pages.
I will recorment any other book then this, if you are going for basic, structiural knowlege.
The book simply needs restructuring, where you have a proper introduction to a subject, then more in deep with the subject, and end the end, how this is show is different diseases, and if possiable in the end of the chaptor, a breaf review of what you have learned, and the different characteristic of a disease.

Pathology is an exiting and very important subject, and it deserves a better handeling then what this books does.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book
This is an excellent book. It has been translated even in Greek Language and is widely used by Medical Students in Athens.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful for medical students
This book is a must have for Pathology. It is very easy to read and hard to put down. I wish I would have read this book before reading the Robbins.

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential Pathology
I have had a chance to review the new edition coming this fall and it is a spectacular book. The artwork has been improved to full color drawings and photos. This is overall a much better book for the medical student by onlygiving the 'need to know' and leaving out the 'nice to know'. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Solid Information, Solid Advice!
I am 41, already have osteoporosis, and was in desperate need of some reliable information on hormone therapy. I read this book from cover to cover like a novel. It makes hormones and their effects so much easier to understand. Now I know how to recognize deficiencies and excesses of the most important hormones. Based on Dr. Reiss's recommendations for working with a physician, I found a doctor that understands my needs, conducted thorough testing, and is prescribing exactly what I need. I bring this book with me to the doctor's office, and I refer to it regularly now. It's going to be one of the most well-used books in my home library. Thank you, Dr. Reiss!

Finally!! After exhausting searches through books and the internet comes a valuable, easy to read book on women's hormones! Every young woman should have the opportunity to be informed of hormones.(Hormone loss starts in our late 20's & early 30's!) We are so programmed to "just deal with" so many female hormonal issues. We are under the guise that we have to stop having periods or have hot flashes before we can benefit from hormones! Oh how wrong! This book makes you feel empowered and SAFE! A priceless education. Every Doctor and woman should read this. I can't wait to get started on Dr. Weiss'recomendations. I now have hope!

Forget the high-carb, low-carb debate. The glycemic index (GI)--a measure of carbohydrate quality based on how quickly a food raises blood-glucose (blood sugar) levels--is the dietary key to health, say the authors. Contrary to other diets that treat carbohydrates as all alike, The New Glucose Revolution divides carbos according to their GI into two categories. One is high GI (less desirable): carbohydrates that break down quickly during digestion, leading to fast and high blood-glucose response. Examples are baked potatoes, sports bars, instant rice, corn flakes cereal, and baguettes. The other is low GI (more desirable): carbohydrates that break down slowly during digestion, leading to a gradual glucose release. Examples here are pasta, whole grains, fruit, legumes, and yams.

A low-GI diet is especially recommended for people with diabetes, abdominal overweight, and Syndrome X, say the authors, who have strong medical, nutritional-science, and diabetes education credentials. They explain the importance of understanding GI values, how GI is determined, health applications, and how to choose low-GI foods and balance the overall GI load. They give cooking tips, menu ideas, and 47 recipes. A 68-page table gives the GI values of many foods, including brand names. The New Glucose Revolution is recommended for health-conscious readers who want to understand the glycemic index and how to incorporate it into their diet. --Joan Price ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Works and Makes Sense--If You Read the Details
This is an excellent book for learning how to eat in such a way that you naturally move towards your optimal weight, and do so without hunger if you're overweight and need to lose.

A few of the previous reviewers apparently skimmed through the book and/or missed many of the qualifying details provided in the book about foods. Potatoes indeed have a high GI value: the bigger and older the potato the higher the value. So those small young red potatoes have a lower GI value than those big white Idahos most of us eat. Also, the authors stress that the goal of this approach is not to condemn all "high GI" foods and avoid them like the plague; the goal is to learn how to balance them out with sufficient low GI foods that you don't provoke the classical insulin spike associated with high GI foods.

And the approach is not a "high carbohydrate diet." The GI values specifically measure carbohydrates and their different effects--as measured in the lab-- on insulin response. Meats, fish and dairy are pretty much "no GI" foods (as are a large number of vegetables by the way), and the authors encourage us to eat them abundantly (but to tilt towards the lean side of the meats and to still make sure we don't overeat). The main idea with meats, cheeses and other high protein foods is that they are "calorically dense" and that you can easily overeat them, the more fat they contain the easier.

This is not a "plug and chug" kind of a dietary approach. The authors expect their readers to be reasonably intelligent and mentally hard working in devloping their individual eating plans. The GI values were not simply "invented" because they sounded good in theory. They were discovered as a result of extensive experimentation with human subjects and extensive post-eating blood draws.

If you want a brain-dead approach that will simply tell you "this food is good, this food is bad" or that will tell you "today is Tuesday, this is what you can have for lunch" than this book is not for you. You are going to have to exercise your brain cells as well as your fork and your cardiovascular system (exercise is strongly encouraged) if you are going to get anything out of this approach.

In the very few weeks I've used this approach I've already lost 13 pounds with no discomfort whatsoever and a fair amount of "cheating" (actually there is no cheating in this approach. If you pig out on a particular food at one time you simply adjust your eating plan accordingly for the next day or so and proceed. Forget the guilt). If you want to take it slow and easy, just remember to throw in some veggies with every meal, and try to have a low GI fruit with every meal as well (and horrors!! another contradiction!! Bananas are both "good" and "bad." Young bananas that are still very slightly green have a tested low GI value; older bananas with a lot of black spots on them have developed their sugars and now have a high GI value. Focus on eating slightly green bananas and forget the paranoia about them).

The whole process is about learning which foods have low GI values and which foods have high GI values, and of thowing in some low GI foods whenever it seems appropriate and convenient, remembering that meats, poultry, fish and dairy are essentially "no GI" foods and including them in their lean incarnations as much as possible.

4-0 out of 5 stars Better than the original edition
This book has had one BIG use since its first edition: the introduction of the concept of Glycemic Index (G.I.) which makes it clear that not all carbs are created equal. The G.I. measures how fast the carbs in a food get translated into glucose (which travels in the blood). As most diabetics should know (I am one of them -Type 2, since October 2002), violent blood sugar rises is something that most people (athletes excepted, ocassionally, perhaps) should avoid. This is where this book's meat and bone truly lies: the presentation of this concept plus very useful tables (a ton of pages of them!) of G.I.'s of most foods, which should come in handy when choosing what to pick in the grocery store or the restaurant.

On the flip side, there are some VERY conflicting views presented in the book: "the most important message is that the diet should be low in fat and high in carbohydrates." (quote from page 55). This thought disturbed me, after a year of successfully applying a low-carb lifestyle. With the new edition the above approach was not changed, but rather a new concept was introduced: that of the Glycemic Load. Think of it as a sort of weighted average that combines the quantitative (amount) component of carbs with the measure of the glycemic index (more on the qualitative end), yielding a net measure that should be a better indicator of how healthy a particular food is for you. It's too soon to say whether this Glycemic Load concept has any positive effects at all, but it makes perfect sense. To err on the safe side, I will give the book 4 stars: improved if you compare it with the original edition, but too soon to know whether it will work or not.

5-0 out of 5 stars The New Glucose Revolution
As a PCOSer who has struggled with her weight since puberty, I highly recommend this book. It is useful not only for the information but is balanced and clear. This isn't a "diet" but information on what affects PCOSer, IR folks, Diabetics and Pre-diabetics and how to avoid the insulin issues. In the last 6.5 months I have lost 75 lbs, 51 1/4 inches, increased my energy and strength (along with exercise) and gone down 10 sizes. I don't count calories, I don't deny myself, I eat healthy food. And this book has helped me do this.

1-0 out of 5 stars environmental sociologist reports on the book
If it ignores biochemical individuality and pretends that all foods have the same effects on all bodies, the book is worthless and very dangerous nutritionally. It will certainly help some, though that is only because around 50% of people in the world would apply to its recommendations. For instance, foods can have different effects in different bodies.

If you want to know more about your body type before you begin a nutritional program, I suggest the following books instead. Most of the information presently known is from the sympathetic system side and very little is known about the autonomic, though these recommendations can protect you from such false suggestions of a 'common good program' for all people. Know thyself, before you make a nutritional plan. With the following books you can:

5-0 out of 5 stars A good text for allied health and nursing students.
This is an excellent introduction to health care ethics. Covers theory and principles and ethical decision-making in the first several chapters and the major issues in health care in the remaining chapters. The writers don't bog down in discussing these issues as do some current texts in bioethics. Very readable. Does not have cases so if one uses this for instruction a book with a collection of cases is needed (i.e. Cases Studies in Allied Health Ethics by Veatch and Flack). ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Drug Guide!
I am a 3rd semester nursing student and I absolutely love this drug guide. I have used others before, but this one is the best. It has the best IV drug administration info. It has side effects listed as the most life threatening in bold, and the most frequent in underlines. That makes it easy to wade through all of the possible side effects to the most likely and the most threatening that you may need to know for patient care and, of course, when getting quized by clinical instructors :) When my friends can't find a drug or a detail about administration they always ask for my book or my PDA (i have this version on my PDA also). This is the best drug book I have seen; it also has nursing diagnoses and great patient teaching instructions.

4-0 out of 5 stars Davis's Drug guide report from the field
Im currently a RN student and many of the students in my class including myself use this book. I've actually used 3 different brands but this book stands above all. It lets the reader know important points about the drugs and does not confuse as some of the other books have done w/elaborate terminology. Davis keeps it simple and its well designed. Software isn't bad as well but I find myself using the book more often when I look up the drugs.

3-0 out of 5 stars Getting out of date every day - Not a Mac CD
I use this in nursing school and am finding a new edition is needed. Many new drugs commonly used are not in this eighth edition. I also am disappointed that they advertise the CD rom as Windows or Mac - clearly not usable in the Macintosh. :(

I teach nursing, and this DAVIS Drug Guide for Nurses is a must-have for all my students as they learn how to professionally administer medications to their clients.
All nurses should have a convenient system to use when the occasion arises that a nurse gives a medication that they are unfamilair with...I found that this DAVIS Guide is a quick and easy way to investigate the medication, it's indications, contraindications, nursing considerations and idiosyncrasies. Adverse reactions and normal dosing ranges are included for all medications .....
There is also caution advised to prevent medication errors....near misses are always preferred over real errors any day. How the heart skips a beat whenever that happens!
Nurses NEVER intend to make errors, and this book gives a cautionary tale in the beginning - to help professionals understand the grave seriousness of it all.
It's never too late to buy an informative drug guide, and here I recommend this book to ALL --- professional or not.
It's cruicial that all people who give medications or take them understand the actions of the medications comprehensively.
The more one knows the more choices they posses.

5-0 out of 5 stars Previous reviews are outdated!
The previous 3 reviews were written before the release of this new edition. Still the best single book to read for the oral Boards. All clinicians should own a copy and refer to it often.

2-0 out of 5 stars Why this used to be a good book.
As an attending/assistant professor of anesthesiology I frequently recommend books for residents to read. I still recommend this book, but with the caveat that much of the information is outdated and some of it is no longer even held to be fact. The underlying theme of the book - that comorbid states influence anesthesia and vice versa - is still true. I tell residents to get a used copy or wait until a new edition comes out.

2-0 out of 5 stars This book needs a new edition
Eight years is a long time in the field of anesthesiology. This book would be an invaluable resource IF it wasn't so outdated, but as it is, it talks about too many drugs that are no longer used, and has nothing about many drugs that are commonly used today. IMHO, a current edition of a major anesthesiology text (most of the big name texts have a new edition in the last 1-2 years) is a more useful reference. FWIW, this review is from the perspective of a first-year anesthesiology resident. YMMV.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book can save your life
I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes last month. My family physician gave me a prescription for oral medication and referred me to a diabetes counselor, who recommended the standard ADA diet. I didn't question this, but went to the grocery store and bought a bulging cartload of low-fat food. However, I was also given a glucometer and began testing my blood 6-8 times a day -- not because I was told to do so, but mostly out of curiosity. I immediately noticed that if I ate bread, cereal, fruit, etc., my blood sugar would rise substantially. It seemed abundantly clear, then, that it was best for me NOT to eat those foods. I modified my diet according to the changes I could plainly see in my own blood sugar, keeping my carb intake under 10 or so grams per meal. As an experiment, I also stopped taking my glucophage, just because it seemed that I was getting better results from dietary changes and exercise than I was from the medication. My average blood sugars continued to decline even without the drugs.

Soon after I started this self-made diet plan, a friend recommended Dr. Bernstein's book. I was amazed to see that his suggestions almost perfectly reflected what I had discovered on my own. The more I read the book, the more convinced I became that his system is the only thing that will work for me. There's also no doubt in my mind that it's the only way to try to undo existing damage and reverse the progressive nature of my disease.

The book is clear, detailed, and well-written. The chapters that describe the physiology of diabetes are especially thorough and well done. It's obvious Dr. Bernstein has a personal, intense interest in both the subject and in his patients. He's not just in it for a buck. I recommend this book to everyone with diabetes as well as to the friends and relatives who love them. It will definitely change your life.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book saved my husband's life!!!
My husband was a somewhat overweight insulin-dependent diabetic for many, many years. Even with twice-daily insulin shots, he often had blood sugar numbers over 200. Then, by pure good fortune, he happened to meet the ghost writer of this book and discussed the biology of diabetes with him in great detail. Since beginning this very rigorous plan almost two years ago, he has completely stopped taking insulin! Recent blood and urine work-ups for a physical exam showed no signs of diabetes at all! His diabetes had gotten so bad that his feet still give him a lot of trouble, but, given time, even that is expected to improve. Bruce hates this diet--but, because he believes he'd be a blind amputee without it--or even a dead man by now--he loves it and follows it to the letter. His doctors are now also converts and have purchased their own copies of this book. Don't listen to the ADA; they say diabetics can eat moderate amounts of carbohydrates, but that is just plain wrong. Dr. Bernstein makes his logic crystal clear, and my husband is proof that he's right!

5-0 out of 5 stars Good information from a dedicated individual
I'm a 41 year old male and have recently been diagnosed with pre-diabetes (whatever it is called), with diabetes running in the family, so to get up to speed on the subject I ordered a pile of books (12 of them) off Amazon including this one. I've been through them all and this one I found the best in its explanations of the various aspects of the condition, the various treatments, and many other relevant details.

Dr Bernstein was an engineer with type 1 diabetes and became a doctor to be able to help others with his experiences and findings; he conveys intimate and detailed knowledge about the condition and all its aspects, and generally impresses with the information he provides.

The diet is not exactly appetising plus its very time consuming to have to calculate food details all the time I guess (not having tried it and not hoping to have to try it for awhile), however I will always keep this book in my bookcase "just in case" - if I do get diabetes and complications occur, I will grab this book and give it a shot. Because it is more believable than most of the other stuff out there, for the reason that it comes from someone who found out all of this himself, then became living proof of his own theory.

I would buy this book initially for the descriptions of how diabetes works, how the treatments work and what the various dangers are, exercises provided, etc. - it is well worth its cost for this information alone. Secondly, the diet may come in handy in case of complications etc. and if other treatments don't work.

And Dr Bernstein does indeed answer the phone himself as another writer also mentioned - I called just before opening hours and sure enough got to talk to the man himself.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
This is a common sense book. I am a type 1 diabetic and I highly recommend this book. I have read many other books on diabetes and keep up with the research that is done. Dr Bernstein is a also a diabetic, the book is about his quest to live a life without complications. Great low carb diet book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Practical & effective
I saw Dr. Bernstein speak in 1998 and it completely changed the way I treat people with diabetes. Since that time, I have seen phenomenally better results. Though it is true the book is highly anecdotal, it is always right on in my experience. Dr. Bernstein is an incredibly humble and honorable person as well, a true critical thinker, who questions without belligerence for the truth about diabetes.

This book is a must for everyone who treats people with diabetes, and for everyone with diabetes. ... Read more

Book Description

Information... Knowledge... Understanding... Wisdom...

From the ancient classics to the masterpieces of the 20th century, the Great Books are all the introduction you`ll ever need to the ideas, stories and discoveries that have shaped modern civilization. This collection of 517 classics in 60 beautifully bound volumes is color-coded into four subject categories: literature, history, philosophy, and science. And since this edition includes works from 20th century authors, it`s the most up-to-date collection of the Great Books ever.

Product Details

Reading and understanding great works by history`s outstanding minds has always been considered the substance of a liberal education. The Great Books of the Western World has been acclaimed as the greatest publishing venture of the 20th Century. The set now consists of 60 volumes, with 517 works by 130 authors spanning 30 centuries, on a total of 37,000 pages containing 29 million words. Among the Great Books` 130 authors, 47 are writers of imaginative literature; 29 are masters of mathematics and/or the natural sciences; 28 are historians or social scientists, and 28 or more are philosophers and/or theologians. (This totals 132 because William James and Alfred North Whitehead have made contributions in both of the latter two subject categories).

Volume Details

Volumes 1 and 2 of this collection is the Syntopicon, a unique two-volume guide (not sold separately) that enables you to investigate a particular idea and compare what different authors have to say about it. The Syntopicon comprises a new kind of reference work -- accomplishing for ideas what the dictionary accomplishes for words and the encyclopaedia accomplishes for facts. Also included is the Great Conversation, featuring fascinating background information, extensive timelines, photos, and quotes from the classic works and their authors.

5-0 out of 5 stars great books!
Some 15 years ago, I bought the 54 volume version of the great books of the western civilization -and spent ten years reading them (aside from making a living and raising two children). These books have affected my life in various ways, all very positive I believe. If my comment can at least encourage one person in the world to go ahead and read this extraordinary collection, I would be very happy. The publishers have been wise in avoiding footnotes and erudite biographical notes, and of course, in the selection of the works. R Roose from Mexico City

4-0 out of 5 stars A Reasonable Investment
My brother bought this collection when we were eight - a ridiculous request to any parent, undoubtedly - but whatever their reasons it still rests with us today, well-thumbed, especially the Syntopicons. The beauty of this collection is that it's a good introduction to aesthetics, to history and western thought. It generally captures the milestones - big or small - that permeates in influence over the world today. In America there is a growing redudancy to Freud, and Darwin relies on its PRs, extentionists who carry on his legacy in different colors. These are just some superficial examples. The only danger is that the reader may have to take a lot of effort in seeing how it has evolved and been adapted - to update themselves and not get caught with the raw material. as we grow up ( I'm eighteen now, my brother twenty one ) we still find it profound and delightful, and as we read, we learn to respect it more, we grow to liking it, like a blur picture that slowly comes into focus as the years unravel. It was a juvenile effort to cram such intellectual backbones before we hit puberty - but it doesn't come to any loss. The only problem I have with it is that it is in its core text, without much explanation besides the Syntopicon and a book that accompanies it ( timelines, etc) and I think they overlook some great people, like John Donne and include some ideas that are rather diluted in application today, like Spinoza. Of course, that's in my humble opinion, and well - it's debatable among the academias. It's a good book, with patience and some commitment it's rewarding, I'm sure.

5-0 out of 5 stars good start...
I used this set of books to cure myself of various dimensions of my own illiteracy.

Suffering from a lack, perhaps, of desirable introductions featured in other editions of the same works, the consistency of printed style makes it slightly more accessible for a serious reader. The overall aesthetics of the set may add to speed and comprehension.

I would not necessarily, however, read every word : page thru, and see what catches your eye ...

... and add such readings as Joyce's ULYSSES, FINNEGAN'S WAKE, Prousts' REMEMBRANCE, and Musil's MAN WITHOUT QUALITIES. Great Books lists abound. . .

...of course, one ought not to stop there . . . supplement your "great books" with the "missing features" included in Dr.Eliots' earlier five foot shelf of Harvard Classics.

... any student lavishing several hours on each of the classic volumes included in these sets would be well-prepared, to a considerable extent, for any college curriculum. This is entirely apart from the increased appreciation of literature and other things one derives from the Great Books. ... Read more

Every non-clinician in my medical device company has borrowed my now dog-eared copy of this book! Beginning with a very straightforward discussion of cardiac anatomy and physiology, the editor then takes us through the components of electrocardiograms and how to recognize rhythms both normal and not. I was especially grateful for the thorough treatment of different types and levels of patient ECG monitoring and the sections on ventricular dysrhythmias. Easy to read, good mneumonic devices throughout--and frequent quizzes to self-test your understanding. Found one typo that was distressing, but easy enough to figure out when thought through. ...

Book Description

The eleventh edition of Principles of Anatomy and Physiology marks a new milestone in the publication of the phenomenally successful Principles of Anatomy and Physiology. Bryan Derrickson of Valencia Community College in Orlando, Florida joins Jerry Tortora as a co-author, bringing his background and expertise in physiology in balance with Jerry's focus on anatomy. The authors have maintained in the text the superb balance between structure and function and continue to emphasize the correlations between normal physiology and pathophysiology, normal anatomy and pathology, and homeostasis and homeostatic imbalances. The acclaimed illustration program is now even better thanks to the input of hundreds of professors and students and the re-development of many of the figures depicting the toughest topics for students to grasp. The eleventh edition now fully integrates this exceptional text with a host of innovative electronic media, setting the standard once again for a rewarding and successful classroom experience for both students and instructors. ...

This book have mostly of the phatologies that we found in every day practice.Even do that we as opthometrist don't treat all of them, is very important that as primary eye care providers we give our patients the proper information about their simptoms and their desease.I find this booh very handy to understand most of the ocular pathologies for non eye doctors and students as well.

I wanted to give six stars to this book, but does not have this option. This is the must have book for all the ophthamologists.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic tool to have beside you !
After 2 years at university, you tend to rely upon certain sources for inspiration to carry on. This book was designed to teach and entertain symbiotically. The new format leads the reader into a pattern of thought that they can use in clinical practice. A must, to further your knowledge.

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb learning tool
I bought the first edition of this book in 1984. It was superb then and hard to imagine it could be improved. The fourth edition shows what can be done by a knowlegable ophthalmologist who has carefully thought out how to make learning the topic as easy as possible. Having been in practice for over a decade, I know that the photos in the book really do give a realistic representation of an actual patient. The text is comprehensive and explains each clinical condition completely but not verbosely. I have really been stunned by the excellence of this book and I can't recommend it highly enough.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Physics Practice
I really found this book very, very helpful. I thought it covered every topic on the MCAT. Some of the questions were a little easier than McAT, and some seemed a little more difficult than MCAT, but they all seemed like McAT questions to me. You can't beat the online help offered with this book. THe author himself answers your science questions. Two enthusiastic thumbs up from me.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this book!
I was extremely disappointed in this book. I bought it used online and regret wasting my money. This book does not resemble the MCAT at all, and there are blocks of questions which are virtually identical to one another, except for some of the numbers being changed. I also noticed a bunch of errors which was another frustration. I am now using my textbook, College Physics for practice questions.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good way to prep for Physics
I used the 1001 physics book and a national prep course to prepare for my MCAT. I scored a 12 on the physical sciences. I found the 1001 physics book to be accurate in the science and a strong pedagogic tool for learning the concepts. There were some (but really very few) typos in the book, and I didn't find them myself, but they were posted on the examkrackers website and appear to be updated regularly. Additionally, Examkrackers provides a bulletin board where Jon Orsay himself actually responds quickly to science questions that relate to the book. Mr. Orsay explains on this site that the 1001 books are designed to teach MCAT science and that passages allow you to answer questions without knowing the science. That's why these questions are not passage based. He actually suggests using a different book if you are already scoring 10s in the science section and he says that you should definitely supplement this book with a review book and full length exams. Anyway, I thought the book was pretty good, and I don't think I would have done so well without it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Fair review questions.
This book contains many questions in basic physics for the MCAT. All relevant topics are covered; however, I feel that this is not the best book for review. The main objection I have is that the question format is NOT what appears on the MCAT. Most MCAT questions are based on a reading passage and very few of the Examcracker's questions are in that form. Those that are based on a passage are very simple when compared to the real MCAT questions. I scored well on the physics section but it was because I worked through real MCAT practice exams. Do not use this book as your sole source for physics preparation. I've said this dozens of times to friends, "If you purchase a 'comprehensive' review book make sure you also use old college books, old college notes, and work through old MCAT exams."

4-0 out of 5 stars Hard ones, Easy ones.
The style of the questions get you thinking conceptually. For each topic the difficulty ranges from easy to extremely difficult. The difficult ones can be intimidating if you don't realize that they won't likely be that hard on the real thing. The explanations are concise, and often reveal when an overly difficult question is out of the MCAT league. ... Read more

If you haven't seen Hay House's Lifestyles series of gorgeous gift books, there is no better way to acquaint yourself than with publisher/author Louise Hay's You Can Heal Your Life. A bestseller for many years, You Can Heal Your Life has been republished with bright, beautiful illustrations in full, living color and exquisite typography--each and every page is a work of art by artist Joan Perrin Falquet. The timeless message of the book is that we are each responsible for our own reality and "dis-ease." Hay believes we make ourselves ill by having thoughts of self-hatred. She includes a directory of ailments and emotional causes for each with a corresponding affirmation to help overcome the illness. For example, the probable cause of multiple sclerosis is "mental hardness, hard-heartedness, iron will, and inflexibility." The healing "thought pattern" would be: "By choosing loving, joyous thoughts, I created a loving joyous world. I am safe and free." --P. Randall Cohan ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This Book Saved My Life
Louise Hay has been there and done that and this is evidenced by the content of her book. When I first bought a copy of You Can Heal Her Life, I read the first 2 chapters, and put the book down. I was angry because Ms Hay was telling me like it was, and I didn't want to hear the truth. I didn't want to look at myself and take responsibility for my life and my happiness and my health. I wanted to be told that My situation was beyond my control. A couple of years later, I picked up that copy of You Can Heal Your Life, ready to read it and hear the truth that saved Ms Hay's life, years before. As I worked through the exercises and started practicing the affirmations in the way Ms Hay instructed, I literally began to heal my life of suicidal depression, kidney disfunction, arthritis, and the hurt of child sexual abuse, as well as a slew of other problems. A miracle happened. I started to become happy. Since this time, I have continued to use the mirror exercises and affirmations that she describes, and continued to work to change my thought patterns. As a result of this, my attitudes have changed, and I have become a much more positive, optimistic person. Everything that I need in life seems to come to me as I need it. I used to get sick with great regularity, catching everything whether it was a common disease/disorder or not, and I rarely get sick or become injured now. I am happy almost every day and am seeing my dreams come true. The last 10 years, since I read You Can Heal Your Life for the first time, have been a wonderous journey, and I wouldn't trade it for anything. While I did the work, I owe a debt of gratitude to Louise Hay for writing and marketing this book so that her message could reach me and countless others. I have seen the same kind of results in almost a dozen other people who have read You Can Heal Your Life. There is a better way, and this is it. Give it a try, you're worth it! Love and Peace!

5-0 out of 5 stars Thank you, Louise!
I really shouldn't even write a review of this book or of Louise Hay, for I am extremely biased. Biased in the fact that she and her writings literally saved my life. People often say that something "completely changed their life" and while it sounds cliche here to say that, it's exactly what happened. I can't begin to describe to you the power of positive affirmations. I literally went from sleeping on someone's livingroom floor and earning just above minimum wage, to owning my own home (7 bedrooms, thank you) and a large steady income. Not to mention health, happiness, an perfect mate, and everything in between. This book is easy to read, easy to follow and a great motivator. Do yourself a favor and buy several copies, because you'll want to give them out as gifts. I just can't say enough about Louise and how she has changed my life and the lives of others. Thank you, Louise--you're a treasure.

5-0 out of 5 stars You can heal your life
I have a gift edition of the book. And it was one of the first self-improvement books I ever read. I am happy that I picked Louise Hay. She is a Master in making people feel great about themselves and cut criticism and megative thoughts that often creep into our minds and try to make us feel miserable. I can tell you that after reading the book you start to work on your mind and finally you change your life. It has exercises and affirmations that do significant improvements in your life and even in your looks. If you buy a gift edition the book of Meditations is really good. A meditation on headache almed and treated mine right after I read it several times. And illustrations... You can buy the book only to see amazing work of Joan Perrin Falquet.

5-0 out of 5 stars You must first believe that the mind controls your health
My journey through bad health has been going on now for eight years, cost me over $100,000, and my condition has been hurt more by the MDs who claimed they could fix it -- than was helped by them. Enough was enough. Doctors are more concerned about maxing their fees, assembly-lining as many patients per hour through their offices -- anything -- to overcome the hold that insurance companies presently have on their standard of living. And their patients -- are the losers to such practices. If you are to benefit from Louise Hay's book, you must accept that there is a mind/body connection to health -- a belief that our minds cause our colds as well as our cancers. That past traumas -- or simply bad beliefs -- have sufficient emotional impact on us -- "zapping" us -- into negative thought patterns that lodge somewhere in our bodies, wear us down, cause us to be hurt, in pain, paralyzed with fear, frightened into intertia -- in effect, our bodies to break down into -- dis-ease. That is the premise of this book. Should you believe it? After eight years of seeing top MDs to alternative practitioners, I tired of feeding "the healthcare mill" that makes MDs wealthy -- and me increasingly disabled. I am now fighting my way back to wellness -- exploring many authors based on their mind/body teachings, and using their techniques. My belief that I can get well is what is making me well. The proof is clear -- by the progress I have made.

5-0 out of 5 stars Motivating to One's Character
This book challenges the reader to look within themselves for healing and solice. We are what we believe ourselves to be. Our beliefs create our path, and even, our physical bodies more than we often realize. Louise Hay has written a book that inspires each of us to take full responsibility for who we are, and in turn, what we become. Within the pages of this book, you will find emotional and mental patterns that create us from the inside out. You can use the affirmations in this book to heal; rather than, hurt. ... Read more

With this third edition of INTRODUCTION TO MICROBIOLOGY you get the perspective of all of those three professionals. John Ingraham, a professor of microbiology at University of California at Davis, and Catherine Ingraham, his daughter and a practicing physician, utilize their experience within a case history approach complemented by a great technology package. Each chapter in INTRODUCTION TO MICROBIOLOGY now consistently begins with a case history, which John Ingraham has found very motivatonal to students who are new to the study ofbasic science.

Instructors receive powerful PowerPoint slides for all the illustrations, tables and figures from the text, plus several animations are at your fingertips. ... Read more
