BITTER MEDICINE: What I've Learned and Teach about Malpractice Lawsuits (And How to Avoid Them)
BITTER MEDICINE: What I've Learned and Teach about
A SURGEON-PROFESSOR dramatizes tragic case histories to teach his medical students how to "Do No Harm" and avoid being sued for malpractice when they become doctors. Part memoir, part expose, BITTER MEDICINE (175 pages, 92,800 words) lets the reader "learn from the dead" in an anatomy laboratory, respond to "a sudden cry for help" in a hospital emergency room, and follow students as they discover how easy it is to maim and kill patients in an operating room."THANKS TO LAWYERS who consulted me," writes Dr. Kessler, "I've amassed a large file of the medical records. They proved to be effective teaching tools. I found that students retain more from studying medical disasters than perfectly executed procedures. Why? Happy outcomes can be boring. Catastrophes are unforgettable. I hope the cases I've discussed with my students will help readers make up their own minds about medical malpractice, health care reform, socialized medicine and other political footballs that are being tossed around today."SOME AMERICANS have been persuaded by politicians and pundits that most medical malpractice lawsuits are 'frivolous'–that they are without merit. If that were true, I'd have had a hard time finding the cases I’ve presented in my classes and seminars. I did not. No deep research was requi...

The Wild Medicine Solution: Healing with Aromatic, Bitter, and Tonic Plants
The Wild Medicine Solution: Healing with Aromatic, Bitter,
Restoring the use of wild plants in daily life for vibrant physical, mental, and spiritual health • Explains how 3 classes of wild plants--aromatics, bitters, and tonics--are uniquely adapted to work with our physiology because we coevolved with them • Provides simple recipes to easily integrate these plants into meals as well as formulas for teas, spirits, and tinctures • Offers practical examples of plants in each of the 3 classes, from aromatic peppermint to bitter dandelion to tonic chocolate As people moved into cities and suburbs and embraced modern medicine and industrialized food, they lost their connection to nature, in particular to the plants with which humanity coevolved. These plants are essential components of our physiologies--tangible reminders of cross-kingdom signaling--and key not only to vibrant physical health and prevention of illness but also to soothing and awakening the troubled spirit. Blending traditional herbal medicine with history, mythology, clinical practice, and recent findings in physiology and biochemistry, herbalist Guido Masé explores the three classes of plants necessary for the healthy functioning of our bodies and minds--aromatics, bitters, and tonics. He explains how bitter plants ignite digestion, balance blood sugar, buffer t...

Bitter Medicine: A Graphic Memoir of Mental Illness
Bitter Medicine: A Graphic Memoir of Mental
In 1976, Ben Martini was diagnosed with schizophrenia. A decade later, his brother Olivier was told he had the same disease. For the past thirty years the Martini family has struggled to comprehend and cope with a devastating illness, frustrated by a health care system lacking in resources and empathy, the imperfect science of medication, and the strain of mental illness on familial relationships. Throughout it all, Olivier, an accomplished visual artist, drew. His sketches, comic strips, and portraits document his experience with, and capture the essence of, this all too frequently misunderstood disease. In Bitter Medicine, Olivier’s poignant graphic narrative runs alongside and communicates with a written account of the past three decades by his younger brother, award-winning author and playwright Clem Martini. The result is a layered family memoir that faces head-on the stigma attached to mental illness. Shot through with wry humour and unapologetic in its politics, Bitter Medicine is the story of the Martini family, a polemical and poetic portrait of illness, and a vital and timely call for action.

The House of God
The House of
By turns heartbreaking, hilarious, and utterly human, The House of God is a mesmerizing and provocative novel about Roy Basch and five of his fellow interns at the most renowned teaching hospital in the country. “The raunchy, troubling, and hilarious novel that turned into a cult phenomenon.

A phenomenon ever since it was published, The House of God was the first unvarnished, unglorified, and uncensored portrait of what training to become a doctor is truly like, in all its terror, exhaustion and black comedy.

Cocktail Codex: Fundamentals, Formulas,
JAMES BEARD AWARD WINNER • From the authors of the best-selling and genre-defining cocktail book Death & Co, Cocktail Codex is a comprehensive primer on the craft of mixing drinks that employs the authors' unique "root cocktails" approach to give drink-makers of every level the tools to understand, execute, and improvise both classic and original cocktails."There are only six cocktails." So say Alex Day, Nick Fauchald, and David Kaplan, the visionaries behind the seminal craft cocktail bar Death & Co. In Cocktail Codex, these experts reveal for the first time their surprisingly simple approach to mastering cocktails: the "root recipes," six easily identifiable (and memorizable!) templates that encompass all cocktails: the old-fashioned, martini, daiquiri, sidecar, whisky highball, and flip. Once you understand the hows and whys of each "family," you'll understand why some cocktails work and others don't, when to shake and when to stir, what you can omit and what you can substitute when you're missing ingredients, why you like the drinks you do, and what sorts of drinks you should turn to--or invent--if you want to try something new.
