Survival of the Sickest

by Jonathan Prince Sharon Moalem

Read it. You're already living it. Was diabetes evolution's response to the last Ice Age? Did a deadly genetic disease help our ancestors survive the bubonic plagues of Europe? Will a visit to the tanning salon help lower your cholesterol? Why do we age? Why are some people immune to HIV? Can your genes be turned on -- or off? Joining the ranks of modern myth busters, Dr. Sharon Moalem turns our current understanding of illness on its head and challenges us to fundamentally change the way we think about our bodies, our health, and our relationship to just about every other living thing on earth, from plants and animals to insects and bacteria. Through a fresh and engaging examination of our evolutionary history, Dr. Moalem reveals how many of the conditions that are diseases today actually gave our ancestors a leg up in the survival sweepstakes. When the option is a long life with a disease or a short one without it, evolution opts for disease almost every time. Everything from the climate our ancestors lived in to the crops they planted and ate to their beverage of choice can be seen in our genetic inheritance. But Survival of the Sickest doesn't stop there. It goes on to demonstrate just how little modern medicine really understands about human health, and offers a new way of thinking that can help all of us live longer, healthier lives. Survival of the Sickest is filled with fascinating insights and cutting-edge research, presented in a way that is both accessible and utterly absorbing. This is a book about the interconnectedness of all life on earth -- and, especially, what that means for us.

In her previous New York Times bestsellers, author and renowned radio host Dr. Laura Schlessinger has helped countless men and women become better husbands, wives, parents, and people. She's helped them cope with grief; encouraged them to be moral, compassionate, and considerate individuals; shown them how to handle adversity; and set them on the path to understanding and living happy, well-adjusted lives. Now, in this long-awaited book, Dr. Laura turns to an emotionally explosive subject that has touched all our lives: betrayal and the desire for revenge. And for the first time, she shares her own personal experiences with betrayal, humiliation, and pain, which have led her to a powerful desire for revenge. Intimate and honest, Dr. Laura connects with her readers as never before and puts this subject into context: I concluded that betrayals are frightening, destructive, painful, humiliating, demoralizing, and so very, very hard to repair. Betrayals undermine people, relationships (marriages and families), institutions (churches, schools, businesses, government, politics)-everything. The entire fabric of humanity depends upon people depending upon each other for their word, honesty, and loyalty. Millions of Dr. Laura's listeners struggle with the idea of taking revenge and how to accept when it cannot be achieved. For many who have been betrayed, justice may never be served, she reminds us. Empathetic yet never saccharine, direct yet never harsh, Dr. Laura encourages readers to explore their feelings and learn to get beyond them, supplying tools they can use to achieve fulfilling, contented lives free of rancor and the need to settle scores. Powerful and thought-provoking, Surviving a Shark Attack (on Land) gives readers the emotional defenses they need to overcome the worst life will throw at them, whether it's a cheating spouse, a lying sibling, or a ruthless colleague.

Samuel was one of the few to survive the harsh realities of the New World during the first few years of Jamestown. Based on author Gail Karwoski's careful research of the era, this fictional account portrays the struggles and successes of our country's earliest settlers, as seen through the life of a young man.

Surviving Sudden Environmental Change

by Jago Cooper Payson Sheets

Archaeologists have long encountered evidence of natural disasters through excavation and stratigraphy. In Surviving Sudden Environmental Change, case studies examine how eight different past human communities--ranging from Arctic to equatorial regions, from tropical rainforests to desert interiors, and from deep prehistory to living memory--faced, and coped with, such dangers. Many disasters originate from a force of nature, such as an earthquake, cyclone, tsunami, volcanic eruption, drought, or flood. But that is only half of the story; decisions of people and their particular cultural lifeways are the rest. Sociocultural factors are essential in understanding risk, impact, resilience, reactions, and recoveries from massive sudden environmental changes. By using deep-time perspectives provided by interdisciplinary approaches, this book provides a rich temporal background to the human experience of environmental hazards and disasters. In addition, each chapter is followed by an abstract summarizing the important implications for today's management practices and providing recommendations for policy makers. Publication supported in part by the National Science Foundation.

Surviving Survival: The Art and Science of Resilience

by Laurence Gonzales

You have survived the crisis--trauma, disease, accident, or war--now how do you get your life back? The shark attacked while she was snorkeling, tearing through Micki Glenn's breast and shredding her right arm. Her husband, a surgeon, saved her life on the spot, but when she was safely home she couldn't just go on with her life. She had entered an even more profound survival journey: the aftermath. The survival experience changes everything because it invalidates all your previous adaptations, and the old rules don't apply. In some cases survivors suffer more in the aftermath than they did during the actual crisis. In all cases, they have to work hard to reinvent themselves. Drawing on gripping cases across a wide range of life-threatening experiences, Laurence Gonzales fashions a compelling argument about fear, courage, and the adaptability of the human spirit. Micki Glenn was later moved to say: "I don't regret that this happened to me. [It] has been . . . probably the single most positive experience I've ever had."
