Diseases of the Heart (1910) By James Mackenzie
eBook (ePub): $11.99
(1 Ratings)
(460 PAGES)THE speedy exhaustion of the first edition of this book, and the demand for its translation into a number of languages, is an evidence of the interest taken in the more recent methods of... More > studying diseases of the heart. It is extremely gratifying to find many investigators entering a field full of promise of new and original observations, embracing every aspect of the circulatory system. I wish to point out that, in setting forth my own experiences, I desire to keep the record of facts apart from their interpretation. For this reason the numerous figures in the text represent the actual facts as recorded by the movements of the heart and blood-vessels, and are therefore far more trustworthy than a verbal description. The interpretation of these tracings represents the present state of my knowledge. These interpretations may ultimately be proved to be incorrect, but the recorded movements will continue to serve for other and more fitting explanations.< Less

Piece of my Mind is an affectionate chronicle of family life bursting with laughter, joy, sorrow and nostalgia. But the book is at the same time a story of one man's battle against Parkinson's and... More > his determination to find laughter in each situation life throws at him. Whether tremors at mealtimes "I reach for the Parmesan and, ten seconds later, the table looks like a nativity scene", or mistaking depilatory cream for face wash "one minute he is Denis Healey, the next he's Niki Lauda", the results are told with nonchalant and engaging deadpan. Think of that literary territory between the laugh-out-loud observations of Bill Bryson and the home spun whimsy of Garrison Keillor, all imbued with a British accent. This is an invigorating book of celebration in the face of adversity. This is a book about life - a slice of life.< Less

Micrographia By Robert Hook

Micrographia Or Some Physiological Descriptions Of Minute Bodies Made By Magnifying Glasses. With Observations and Inquiries Thereupon By Robert Hooke. Fellow of the ROYAL SOCIETY. By the Council of... More > the ROYAL SOCIETY of London for Improving of Natural Knowledge. Micrographia is a historic book by Robert Hooke, detailing the then thirty-year-old Hooke's observations through various lenses. Published in September 1665, the first major publication of the Royal Society, it was the first scientific best-seller, inspiring a wide public interest in the new science of microscopy. It is also notable for coining the biological term cell. Observations: Hooke most famously describes a fly's eye and a plant cell (where he coined that term because plant cells, which are walled, reminded him of a monk's quarters). Known for its spectacular copperplate engravings of the miniature world, particularly its fold-out plates of insects, the text itself reinforces the tremendous power of the new microscope.< Less

In late 1854, a doctor was called to a house in Hampstead, London. He found the patient - an elderly lady - scrunched up into a ball, a rictus of agony contorting her features. More remarkably, all... More > the moisture in her body seemed somehow to have been sucked out, leaving her dried up like a shrivelled husk. Of all the diseases that afflicted people in the nineteenth century, the pandemics of cholera were undoubtedly the most terrifying. Yet much of their horror could have been avoided for, at a comparatively early stage, their true nature and course had been uncovered. In one of the most extraordinary detective stories in the history of scientific discovery, an English doctor had patiently tracked down the disease, and unmasked it for what it was. This book, written for the general reader, tells how John Snow used a mixture of observation, logic and statistical evidence to go against the overwhelming weight of medical opinion and arrive at a correct understanding of the sickness.< Less

Declining Western Development Hinges on Human Suffering: Developing Countries Cautioned From Copying The Entire Model. The observations in this book about Capitalism are not in comparison to other... More > economic models, but on its own merits that need no such comparison to appreciate. Many have questioned the fairness and the skewedness of wealth distribution in Capitalism, but have been dismissed by the so called winners when they say, ”it’s the best that we have.” On this I would say, if you were stranded in sea it would be imprudent to quench your thirst with the best there is. You should focus on how to make the best available water safe to drink. The best we have does not mean that it’s the best there can ever be. The debate about some Capitalism failures always becomes divisive as most people think that the remedy is socialistic and communism-like and cold war hangovers don’t help.< Less

As we eliminate and correct one disease, we correct them all, for every disease is corrected by the same process of cleansing and building positive good health. Man’s mastery of disease will only be final when ignorance and fear are overcome by proper observance of all laws pertaining to the creation of bones, flesh, and blood. Through eons past and on even into the present, man has been held and still remains in bondage of misery and suffering while witchcraft and quackery, whether licensed or not, have run the gamut of the healing field of misinformation.< Less
