Just Me Book Excerpt:

This is a collection of amusing stories, essays, bloggings, and thoughts from Kevin's life. Many magazines, e-zines, and newsletters have published his stories. His humor and style of writing sets him apart from the norm. Some publications have honored him with awards, as well. Kevin has the ability to take common everyday events and find the humor in them - things that most of us can relate to, which is why they are so popular. Many authors seem to try too hard, but Kevin has a sense of what is funny. Readers can tell he is having fun telling the story yet knows when to stop and not take things too far. Kevin's pastoral side comes out in the last chapter and has become a signature part of his books. This actually completes the concept of Kevin being humorous, sometimes odd, but certainly helpful.

Rethinking Parkinson s Disease Book Excerpt:

John Coleman was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease while studying to be a naturopath, and banished all the frustrating symptoms of this cruel condition from his body ... naturally! His new book equips those diagnosed with the knowledge needed to reverse their Parkinson's disease symptoms and even recover, using completely natural means. Rethinking Parkinson's Disease traces known pathways leading to a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, together with strategies to reverse each pathway. It includes the best evidence from Western allopathic medicine and complementary/alternative medicine in discovering how and why people with Parkinson's develop symptoms, the diagnostic process, standard treatments and prognoses offered by expert practitioners, and ongoing research. The book presents strategies that have been shown, clinically or in research, to improve the health of people with Parkinson's, with the possibility of reversing symptoms. A major section of this work details strategies to create wellness, many available to patients at little or no cost. There are sections on symptom control, complementary medical treatments and therapies to avoid. The book is aimed primarily at people with Parkinson's, families and supporters, and may be used as a self-help book, including advice on building a team of supportive practitioners. There are also suggestions and advice for both Western allopathic medicine and complementary/alternative medicine practitioners to enhance their care of patients with a Parkinson's disease diagnosis, so it may be used as a handbook for practitioners wishing to move away from the standard conservative view of Parkinson's disease as an "incurable" disease.

One Last Trip Book Excerpt:

Who was Sydney Rinard? God loves everyone. He does. But sometimes he sends someone to us who channels that love so well that their life revolves around sharing it. Not in fancy lights or productions. Just by being them. This book is about one such person. My dad, Sydney Rinard. He was an ordinary man. But he was an extraordinary man. Those who were lucky enough to know him already understand that. In his gentle, unpretentious ways, he touched so many lives. He would help anyone in need. Anyone. He was not a famous man. He did not walk the red carpet, win an MVP, or discover the newest scientific breakthrough. He was a son, husband, father, and grandfather. He was an engineer, a woodworker, a friend. He was humble as the day was long but affected so many others with his oversized heart and love for his creator. He loved everyone. And he was funny. Life made him laugh. He was truly happy. Why write a book about him? Sydney Rinard was the type of man that the world needs to know and emulate. As his only daughter, I felt it was not fair for me to keep him all to myself. He wanted to reach out to everyone before he died, so I am now giving all humankind this opportunity to get to know him and be his friend. This story follows his life and a final posthumous journey with me to the beautiful Rocky Mountains in Colorado that will touch your heartstrings. Does God have a favorite? No. But if he did, Sydney Rinard would make his short list.

Doctor Book Excerpt:

Object Lessons is a series of short, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things. A 3-year-old asks her physician father about his job, and his inability to provide a succinct and accurate answer inspires a critical look at the profession of modern medicine. In sorting through how patients, insurance companies, advertising agencies, filmmakers, and comedians misconstrue a doctor's role, Andrew Bomback, M.D., realizes that even doctors struggle to define their profession. As the author attempts to unravel how much of doctoring is role-playing, artifice, and bluffing, he examines the career of his father, a legendary pediatrician on the verge of retirement, and the health of his infant son, who is suffering from a vague assortment of gastrointestinal symptoms. At turns serious, comedic, analytical, and confessional, Doctor offers an unflinching look at what it means to be a physician today. Object Lessons is published in partnership with an essay series in The Atlantic.

Lucky Man Book Excerpt:

In September 1998, Michael J. Fox stunned the world by announcing that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease - in fact, he had been secretly fighting it for seven years. In this candid book, with his trademark ironic sensibility and sense of the absurd, he tells his life story - from his childhood in western Canada to his meteoric rise in film and television and, most importantly, the years in which - with the unswerving support of his wife, family and friends - he has dealt with his illness. He talks about what Parkinson's has given him: the chance to appreciate a wonderful life and career, and the opportunity to help search for a cure and spread public awareness of the disease. He feels as if he is a very lucky man indeed.

Humor and Psyche Book Excerpt:

Humor, a topic that engaged Sigmund Freud both early and late in his career, is richly intertwined with character, with creativity, and with the theory and practice of psychoanalytic therapy. Yet, until very recently, analysts ignored Freud's lead and relegated humor to the periphery of their concerns. Humor and Psyche not only remedies previous neglect of the role of humor in the psychoanalytic situation but opens to a broad and balanced consideration of the role of humor in psychological life. Section I provides historical and theoretical perspectives on the concept of humor. Contributors review Freudian and post-Freudian theories of humor, address the inseparability of humor and play, adumbrate a postmodernist perspective on humor, and focus on the unique cognitive and affective properties of humor. In Section II contributors turn to the relationship of humor to various aspects of the therapeutic process, including the relationship of humor to transference interpretation, the enlivening effects of humor on the therapeutic process, and the multiple meanings of humorous exchanges between therapists and patients. Section III concludes the volume with three fascinating essays on the relationship of humor to character and creativity. They focus, respectively, on the role of humor in the 25-year correspondence of Freud and Sándor Ferenczi, on the interweaving of D. W. Winnicott's comic spirit and theoretical innovations, and on the relationship between humor and creativity in the music of the American composer Charles Ives. Taken together, the contributors reestablish the importance of humor as a topic of psychotherapeutic relevance more than 70 years after Freud's final essay on the topic. Delightfully readable from beginning to end, Humor and Psyche edifies as it entertains.

George Cole The World Was My Lobster The Autobiography Book Excerpt:

The World was my Lobster tells the story of George Cole's more than 70 years in the acting profession that began with a walk-on part at the age of 14 in the stage musical The White Horse Inn in 1939, and continues today having included such roles as David Bliss in the radio and television versions of A Life of Bliss, Flash Harry in the St. Trinian's films, and Arthur Daley in television's Minder.Adopted when he was only 10 days old, George Cole grew up in south London in the 1920s. On the day he left school he saw a newspaper advertisement seeking a small boy to join the cast of The White Horse Inn and was selected the following day. A year later, he found himself in the West End play Cottage to Let playing a cheeky wartime evacuee. Here he met legendary comic actor Alastair Sim who, with his wife, took him as an evacuee in their country house and coached him in the finer skills of acting. A flurry of films and theatre performances in the late 1940s, after his RAF service, culminated in a memorable role as a young Ebenezer Scrooge in the classic 1951 film Scrooge alongside Sim. Henry V, Cleopatra (with Elizabeth Taylor), Don't Forget to Write, Blott on the Landscape, Henry Root, and Dad are among other titles for which he is well known. But it was in 1979 that he landed the role that would elevate him to international recognition when he was offered the role of Arthur Daley in Thames Television's new series Minder alongside Dennis Waterman. In The World was my Lobster, a title taken from a classic line in a Minder episode, George Cole talks candidly, humorously and sensitively about his adoption, his life, his roles and many of the people he has worked with throughout his long career.

Few cities in the world abound with so many extraordinary stories as Glasgow. The city has been the silent witness to some of the most significant events of the past century, from major triumphs to cataclysmic calamities, and the best of these anecdotes are compiled here to form this unique collection. Amongst the notable events revisited are the launching of the Queen Mary, which captivated the city's inhabitants in 1934, the victorious 16-month work-in campaign by the Upper Clyde Shipbuilders in the early 1970s, the Ibrox disaster of 1971 and the plague that gripped the Gorbals in 1900. Some of Glasgow's most successful people are also covered, including Clydeside revolutionary John Maclean, founder of the Barras Maggie McIver and the inimitable Billy Connolly, whose humour and colourful personality are synonymous with the city. From the Battle of George Square to the bravery of the Glasgow people during the Blitz, Great Glasgow Stories provides an all-encompassing view of the city throughout the eras.

No Time Like the Future Book Excerpt:

'The book is great: moving but also properly funny.' Hadley Freeman, The Guardian 'A memoir with an unusual sense of purpose. . . pithy, highly readable' The Times The entire world knows Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, the teenage sidekick of Doc Brown in Back to the Future. His two previous bestselling memoirs, Lucky Man and Always Looking Up, dealt with how he came to terms with the illness, all the while exhibiting his iconic optimism. In No Time Like the Future: An Optimist Considers Mortality, Michael shares personal stories and observations about illness and health, ageing, the strength of family and friends, and how our perceptions about time affect the way we approach mortality. Thoughtful and moving, but with Fox's trademark sense of humour, his book provides a vehicle for reflection about our lives, our loves, and our losses. Running through the narrative is the drama of the medical madness Fox recently experienced, that included his daily negotiations with the Parkinson's disease he's had since 1991, and a spinal cord issue that necessitated immediate surgery. His challenge to learn how to walk again, only to suffer a devastating fall, nearly caused him to ditch his trademark optimism and "get out of the lemonade business altogether." Does he make it all of the way back? Read the book.
