According to the National Institutes of Health, there are sixty to seventy million people affected by digestive diseases in the United States. The old proverb tells us "you are what you eat," and the latest science shows that this may be truer than we even thought. Diet has a profound effect on both physical and mental health. Most of the body's immune system is in the gut, so pathology and dysfunction in the gut and imbalanced gut flora can cause neuroinflammation and possibly even neurodegenerative disease over time.Featuring contributions from dozens of experts on gut disorders and related physical, mental, and behavioral health, this book will fascinate you as you read about the intriguing world of bad bugs, cytokine storms, and the environment in your belly that influences your brain. From the microscopic world of Clostridium to the complex communities of biofilm, Bugs, Bowels, and Behavior emphasizes one simple fact: The gut is connected to the brain.

How should you grow your organization?It's one of the most challenging questions an executive team faces-and the wrong answer can break your firm.The problem is most firms' growth strategies emphasize just one type of growth-some focus on organic growth, others on M&A. When these strategies falter, the common response is simply to try harder-but firms falling into this "implementation trap" usually end up losing out to a competitor whose approach is more inclusive.So where do you start? By asking the right questions, argue INSEAD's Laurence Capron and coauthor Will Mitchell, of the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto and Duke University's Fuqua School of Business. Drawing on decades of research and teaching, Capron and Mitchell find that a firm's aptitude for determining the best resource pathways for growth has a defining impact on its success. They've come up with a helpful framework, reflecting practices of a variety of successful global organizations, to determine which path is best for yours.The resource pathways framework is built around three strategic questions: BUILD: Are your existing internal resources relevant for developing the new resources that you have targeted for growth? BORROW: Could you obtain the targeted resources via an effective relationship with a resource partner? BUY: Do you need broad and deep relationships with your resource provider?Written for large multinationals and emerging firms alike, Build, Borrow, or Buy will help solve a perennial question and will guide you through change while priming your organization for optimal growth.

"Peterson writes of nature with an intimacy that tugs at the reader's deep memory."--Orion This is the story of a life and spirit guided by animals. Brenda Peterson was raised in the High Sierras on a national forest lookout station, and wildlife had a daily, defining influence on her life. Peterson explores her deep connection with animals, from watching grizzlies in Montana's Rockies, to keeping Siberian huskies as pets in New York City, to her work for the restoration of wild wolves. Her lively storytelling bridges the worlds of human and animal, as she fascinates us with intimate stories of her studies of wild dolphins, whales, and orcas. Peterson reveals how animal bonds have enriched her life and led her toward a wider epiphany: As a species we cannot live without other animals. "[A] wealth of fascinating anecdotes and insights...[an] engaging memoir."--Publishers Weekly
