The art of misdiagnosis : a memoir

January 18, 2018
Brandeis, Gayle, author.
Boston : Beacon Press, [2017]
253 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm
"Gayle Brandeis's mother disappeared just after Gayle gave birth to her youngest child. Several days later, her body was found: she had hanged herself in the utility closet of a Pasadena parking garage. In this searing, formally inventive memoir, Gayle describes the dissonance between being a new mother, a sweet-smelling infant at her chest, and a grieving daughter trying to piece together what happened, who her mother was, and all she had and hadn't understood about her. Around the time of her suicide, Gayle's mother had been working on a documentary about the rare illnesses she thought ravaged her family: porphyria and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. In The Art of Misdiagnosis, taking its title from her mother's documentary, Gayle braids together her own narration of the charged weeks surrounding her mother's suicide, transcripts of her mother's documentary, research into delusional and factitious disorders, and Gayle's own experience with misdiagnosis and illness (both fabricated and real). Slowly and expertly, The Art of Misdiagnosis peels back the complicated layers of deception and complicity, of physical and mental illness in Gayle's family, to show how she and her mother had misdiagnosed one another. Gayle's memoir is both a compelling search into the mystery of one's own family and a life-affirming story of the relief discovered through breaking familial and personal silences."-- Provided by publisher.

New York, NY : AMACOM, [2017]
xix, 199 pages : illustrations ; 22 cm
pt. I. Meeting the Camino. The history of the Camino de Santiago -- The spirit of the Camino -- pt. II. Learning from the Camino. Welcome each day, its pleasures and its challenges -- Make others feel welcome -- Live in the moment -- Share -- Feel the spirit of those who have come before you -- Appreciate those who walk with you today -- Imagine those who will follow you -- pt. III. Applying lessons from the Camino. The post-Camino impact -- Think about yourself differently -- Think about others differently -- Act differently -- pt. IV. Sharing the Camino. Find your own Camino.
A leadership journey unlike any other. Stretching across 500 miles of northern Spain, the Camino de Santiago has been a pilgrimage route for a millennium. Each year, hundreds of thousands of peregrinos make their way through rugged countryside and medieval towns in order to reflect, test their will, and join a community of strangers on a shared mission. In short, it's the ideal training ground for authentic leadership. Challenged to walk the Camino, Victor Prince began his trek as one person: driven, work-focused and highly competitive, and he finished it a very different one: more balanced, more caring, and more present in the moment. In this transformative book he guides readers on their own Camino, translating his experience into seven essential leadership lessons inspired by the values emblazoned on the back of every pilgrim's passport: treat each day as its own adventure, make others feel welcome, learn from those who've walked before, consider your impact on those who follow, and more. Leadership is a journey. The Camino Way prepares you to tackle it with a pilgrim's heart, a wayfarer's grit, and a leader's vision. -- Provided by publisher.

Dinner with Dickens : recipes inspired by the life and work of Charles Dickens

January 18, 2018
Vogler, Pen, author.
©2017
176 pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 24 cm
"Recipes and menus from the novels and the household of Charles Dickens, one of the world's favourite authors. Dinner with Dickens celebrates the food of Victorian England by recreating dishes the author wrote about with such gusto, and enjoyed in real life. Food in the novels not only creates character and comedy, but is also a means of highlighting social issues. A grand wedding breakfast skewers ostentation in a wealthy household. A bread-and-butter tea conjures honesty and companionship. The gruel given to hungry children exposes a cruel and unjust regime. The characters who throng Dickens novels are forever offering one another punch or seed biscuits; arranging a nice little supper of pickled salmon, salad and tea; showing concern with a roast fowl; or sisterly love with a painstakingly made beefsteak pudding. And, of course, there is the great feast of Christmas, celebrated in glorious style even by the impoverished Cratchits. At home, Dickens' wife Catherine helped him entertain, and published (under a pseudonym) her own book, What Shall We Have for Dinner?, with pages of menus or bills of fare for different sizes of party and the changing seasons. In Dinner with Dickens, Pen Vogler has fully updated recipes from contemporary Victorian cookbooks, including Catherine's own book. Clear instructions enable you to recreate mutton stuffed with oysters, Betsey Prig's Twopenny Salad, Dickens' own recipe for punch, and the Dickens family's Twelfth Cake. In addition there are features on topics such as Dickens Abroad, Shopping for Food, and Eating Out, with fascinating insights into housekeeping, entertaining, and social history."-- Provided by publisher.

Highland retreats : the architecture and interiors of Scotland's romantic North

January 18, 2018
Miers, Mary, author.
New York : Rizzoli, 2017.
288 pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 29 cm
"Featuring breathtaking photographs of some of Scotland's most remarkable and little-known houses, this book tells the story of how incomers adopted the North of Scotland as a recreational paradise and left an astonishing legacy of architecture and decoration inspired by the romanticized image of the Highlands. Known as shooting lodges because they were designed principally to accommodate the parties of guests that flocked north for the annual sporting season, these houses range from Picturesque cottages ornés and Scotch Baronial castles to Arts and Crafts mansions and modern eco-lodges. While their designs respond to some of Britain's wildest and most stirring landscapes, inside many were equipped with the latest domestic technology and boasted opulent decoration and furnishings from the smartest London and Parisian firms. A good number survive little altered in their original state, and some are still owned by descendants of the families that built them"-- Provided by publisher.

How we talk : the inner workings of conversation

January 18, 2018
Enfield, N. J., 1966- author.
©2017
ix, 257 pages : illustrations ; 22 cm
Introduction: What is language like? -- Conversation has rules -- Split-second thinking -- The one-second window -- Traffic signals -- The glue of relevance -- Repair -- The universal word: "Huh?" -- Conclusion: The capacity for language.
"We all had teachers who scolded us over the use of um, uh-huh, oh, like, and mm-hmm. But as linguist N. J. Enfield reveals in How We Talk, these "bad words" are fundamental to language. Whether we are speaking with the clerk at the store, our boss, or our spouse, language is dependent on things as commonplace as a rising tone of voice, an apparently meaningless word, or a glance-signals so small that we hardly pay them any conscious attention. Nevertheless, they are the essence of how we speak. From the traffic signals of speech to the importance of um, How We Talk revolutionizes our understanding of conversation. In the process, Enfield reveals what makes language universally-and uniquely-human"-- Provided by publisher.

Jane Austen : the banker's sister

January 18, 2018
Clery, E. J., author.
London : Biteback Publishing, 2017.
361 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm
Dead men's shoes: Lady Susan, Elinor and Marianne, First Impressions (1793-1800) -- Modern times: Northanger Abbey and The Watsons (1800-1805) -- Henry turns banker: Lady Susan and the Popham poem (1806-1809) -- The self-made author: Sense and Sensibility (1810-1811) -- Whig history: Pride and Prejudice (1811-1813) -- Speculative society: Mansfield Park (1813-1814) -- Uncommercial Emma (1814-1815) -- Second spring: Persuasion (1815-1816) -- 'The choicest gift of heaven': Sanditon and Winchester Races (1816-1817).
"When it was announced that Jane Austen would appear on the new £10 note in 2017, the 200th anniversary of her death, there was a flurry of media excitement. Few noted that a £10 Austen banknote was already in existence, albeit one issued by her brother. Henry Austen had set up as a banker in 1804, and built up a small empire of country banks. But Henry went unmentioned, and for good reason―he had gone spectacularly bust in the crash of 1816, the year before Jane died. Versions of Henry appear throughout her novels, not least in the charming but unscrupulous Henry Crawford in Mansfield Park, master of the fashionable card game Speculation. In her last novels, Jane worked through her increasing doubts about the speculative mindset and the shock caused by the collapse of Henry's enterprise. Exploring the close parallels between the speculative political economy of the late eighteenth century and that of the present day, Jane Austen: The Banker's Sister counters the stereotype of the spinster tucked away in a Hampshire village, detached from the great historical changes of her era. Based on wholly new research, including sensational new evidence of Henry's entanglements in the dissolute circle around the Prince Regent, this fascinating new volume will change the way Austen's life and her novels are understood."--Back cover.

Listening in : cybersecurity in an insecure age

January 18, 2018
Landau, Susan Eva, author.
©2017
xiv, 221 pages ; 22 cm
Racing into the digital revolution -- We're all connected now -- How do we protect ourselves? -- Investigation in the age of encryption -- There's no turning back.
"New technologies have provided both incredible convenience and new threats. The same kinds of digital networks that allow you to hail a ride using your smartphone let power grid operators control a country’s electricity—and these personal, corporate, and government systems are all vulnerable. In Ukraine, unknown hackers shut off electricity to nearly 230,000 people for six hours. North Korean hackers destroyed networks at Sony Pictures in retaliation for a film that mocked Kim Jong-un. And Russian cyberattackers leaked Democratic National Committee emails in an attempt to sway a U.S. presidential election. And yet despite such documented risks, government agencies, whose investigations and surveillance are stymied by encryption, push for a weakening of protections. In this accessible and riveting read, Susan Landau makes a compelling case for the need to secure our data, explaining how we must maintain cybersecurity in an insecure age."--Inside dust jacket.

Rode, Alan K., 1954- author.
Lexington, Kentucky : University Press of Kentucky, [2017]
xix, 681 pages ; 24 cm.
In the first biography of Michael Curtiz, Alan K. Rode illuminates the life and work of one of the film industry's most complex figures. He begins by exploring the director's early life and career in his native Hungary, revealing how Curtiz shaped the earliest days of silent cinema in Europe as he acted in, produced, and directed scores of films before immigrating to the United States in 1926. In Hollywood, Curtiz earned a reputation for his explosive tantrums, his difficulty communicating in English, and his disregard for the well-being of others. However, few directors elicited more memorable portrayals from their casts, and ten different actors delivered Oscar-nominated performances under his direction.

This is the story of a small band of determined townspeople and how far they went to save beloved land and endangered species from the grip of a powerful corporation in the Arcadia Dunes. This is a narrative with roots as deep as the trees the community is trying to save, something set in motion before the author was even born. And yet, Shumaker gives a human face to the changing nature of land conservation in the twenty-first century. The result is a triumph of community that includes working farms, local businesses, summer visitors, year-round residents, and a network of land stewards. A work of creative nonfiction, Saving Arcadia is the adventurous tale of everyday people fighting to reclaim the land that has been in their family for generations. It explores ideas about nature and community, and anyone from scholars of ecology and conservation biology to readers of naturalist writing can gain from Arcadia's story.

In Southern Girl Meets Vegetarian Boy, Phillips shares 100 recipes that embody the modern Southern kitchen: food that retains all its historic comfort and flavor, but can now be enjoyed by vegetarians and meat-lovers alike. The book features Phillips's most cherished entrees from her childhood made both with and without meat: Chicken Fried Steak becomes Chicken Fried Seitan Steak. Loaded Potato and Bacon Soup is now Loaded Potato and Facon Soup. She gives down-home side dishes a makeover by removing meat, adding interna-tional spices, and updating cooking techniques, and offers soul-satisfying, irresistible desserts that triumph over the meat-eater-versus-vegetarian divide, every time. Phillips found a way to make Southern food that everyone can enjoy, wherever they are on their culinary journey."-- Provided by publisher.

While most trauma treatment programs focus on symptom reduction or temporary relief, Dr. Tick presents a comprehensive vision for healing the soul-level wounds of war. Here he offers proven strategies drawn from cross-cultural wisdom, mythical archetypes, and his 35 years of experience helping veterans, families, and caregivers cope with the life-changing effects of combat. "No society is healthy without a healthy, functioning elder warrior class, " states Dr. Tick. "Warrior's Return" offers step-by-step guidance for initiating our veterans back into the community-an essential map for the hero's journey home.

"Cincinnati Streetcar Heritage is a photographic essay of the Cincinnati, Ohio streetcar system. Cincinnati's first electric streetcar line was the conversion of the Mt. Adams & Eden Park Inclined Railway Company cable car line to electric operation in 1888, which became part of the Cincinnati Street Railway Company in 1896. Because of concern over corrosion of underground conduits and water pipes, Cincinnati's streetcar lines were required to have a double overhead wire within city limits. Cincinnati, along with Merrill, Wisconsin, and Havana, Cuba, were the only streetcar systems in North America with a double overhead wire system. Two open observation streetcars were placed in sightseeing service during 1939. The only Presidents' Conference Committee (PCC) cars ever built with two trolley poles were operated in Cincinnati. Although Cincinnati's streetcars made their last run in 1951, the Toronto Transit Commission purchased 52 of Cincinnati's PCC cars with the last one taken out of service in 1982. Cincinnati Streetcar Heritage documents the city's streetcar era, including the Cincinnati Bell Connector streetcar line which opened in 2016, linking downtown Cincinnati with the Over the Rhine neighborhood"--Back cover.
