Si nuestros cuerpos hablaran (Colección Vital): Guía para cuidar, mantener y comprender el cuerpo hu

Author: James Hamblin Narrator: Bern Hoffman Release Date: October 2019

Una guía ilustrada que, al transformar los aburridos libros de anatomía y fisiología en respuestas atractivas y actualizadas, nos ilumina con su claridad, pone a prueba los límites de nuestro conocimiento y nos hace un regalo excepcional: ¡dejar de preocuparnos por aquello que no tiene importancia! A partir de su experiencia como doctor y periodista, y con un agudo sentido del humor, James Hamblin nos entrega una enciclopedia ilustrada con cientos de anécdotas cómicas, trágicas y únicas que nos explican cómo mantener el buen funcionamiento de nuestro cuerpo en un mundo lleno de mitos y desinformación. «Leer el libro de James Hamblin es como viajar a través del vasto y misterioso universo de la 'ciencia de la salud'. Dietas de moda. Vacunas. Mitos y realidades sobre el café. Por qué nuestro estómago gruñe. Si quieres entender los misteriosos mecanismos del cuerpo humano, así como el futuro de la medicina, tienes que leer este libro» Siddhartha Mukherjee, autor de El emperador de todos los males «Este libro responde todas las preguntas que alguna vez te has hecho sobre tu salud, así como todas aquellas que jamás se te han ocurrido pero cuya respuesta debieras conocer. Incluso si no te interesa tu salud, deberías leer este libro: Hamblin es un escritor salvajemente entretenido» Walter Isaacson, autor de Steve Jobs

Net Work: Training the NBA's Best and Finding the Keys to Greatness Audiobook

Net Work: Training the NBA's Best and Finding the Keys to Greatness

Author: Rob Mcclanaghan Narrator: Tim Paige Release Date: October 2019

Rob McClanaghan, the NBA's most sought-after trainer, shares a behind-the-scenes look at how superstars like Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, and Kevin Love work to excel at the game. When Rob McClanaghan failed to make the Syracuse basketball team as a walk-on freshman, he asked the coaches what he needed to do to achieve his goal the following year. They all agreed: get stronger. So that's what he did. For months, Rob traded fraternity parties and hanging out with buddies for hours in the gym lifting weights and shooting baskets. He was single-minded; the only thing that mattered was defying the odds. He returned to Syracuse for his sophomore year thirty pounds heavier and caught the coach's eye. In Net Work, McClanaghan—referred to by many as "RobMac"—brings to the page what he brings to each of his training sessions: the same grit and spirit that got him into the college game. He calls it "the grind," and he knows that without it, even the most talented players will come up short. McClanaghan pushes his clients hard; he does whatever he can to drive his players to the edge and to simulate fourth quarter, at-the-buzzer adrenaline and fatigue. An all-access pass to the practice courts of the NBA, Net Work combines McClanaghan's hard-earned wisdom—both on and off the court—with rare glimpses into the dues-paying life of professional athletes determined to stay at the top. McClanaghan shares stories of working one-on-one with some of basketball's greatest names, explaining how each athlete works to shore up his offensive and defensive weaknesses; perfect his nutrition; treat injuries; build mental toughness; and find occasional refuge from the glare of the spotlight. This book is life inside the NBA as you've never seen it, where players differentiate themselves by their willingness to put in relentless "net work."

The First Cell: And the Human Costs of Pursuing Cancer to the Last Audiobook

The First Cell: And the Human Costs of Pursuing Cancer to the Last

Author: Azra Raza Narrator: Sheherzad Raza Preisler Release Date: October 2019

A world-class oncologist's devastating and deeply personal examination of cancer We have lost the war on cancer. We spend $150 billion each year treating it, yet -- a few innovations notwithstanding -- a patient with cancer is as likely to die of it as one was fifty years ago. Most new drugs add mere months to one's life at agonizing physical and financial cost. In The First Cell, Azra Raza offers a searing account of how both medicine and our society (mis)treats cancer, how we can do better, and why we must. A lyrical journey from hope to despair and back again, The First Cell explores cancer from every angle: medical, scientific, cultural, and personal. Indeed, Raza describes how she bore the terrible burden of being her own husband's oncologist as he succumbed to leukemia. Like When Breath Becomes Air, The First Cell is no ordinary book of medicine, but a book of wisdom and grace by an author who has devoted her life to making the unbearable easier to bear.

Our Better Angels: Seven Simple Virtues that Will Change Your Life and the World

Author: Jonathan Reckford Narrator: Jimmy Carter, Robert Petkoff Release Date: October 2019

Inspiring and insightful, Our Better Angels: Seven Simple Virtues That Will Change Your Life and the World celebrates the shared principles that unite and enable us to overcome life's challenges together. "When the waters rise, so do our better angels."-President Jimmy Carter Jonathan Reckford, the CEO of Habitat for Humanity, has seen time and again the powerful benefits that arise when people from all walks of life work together to help one another. In this uplifting book, he shares true stories of people involved with Habitat as volunteers and future homeowners who embody seven timeless virtues-kindness, community, empowerment, joy, respect, generosity, and service-and shows how we can all practice these to improve the quality of our own lives as well as those around us. A Vietnam veteran finds peace where he was once engaged in war. An impoverished single mother offers her family's time and energy to enrich their neighbors' lives. A Zambian family of nine living in a makeshift tent makes room to shelter even more. A teenager grieving for his mother honors her love and memory by ensuring other people have a place to call home. A former president of the United States leads by example with a determined work ethic that motivates everyone around him to be the best version of themselves. These stories, and many others, illustrate how virtues become values, how cooperation becomes connection, and how even the smallest act of compassion can encourage actions that transform the world around us. Here are tales that will make readers laugh and cry and embrace with passion the calling of our better angels to change the way we take care of ourselves, our families, our communities, and the world.

When Antidepressants Aren't Enough: Harnessing the Power of Mindfulness to Alleviate Depression Audiobook

When Antidepressants Aren't Enough: Harnessing the Power of Mindfulness to Alleviate Depression

Author: Stuart J. Eisendraft, M.D., Zindel V. Segal Narrator: Graham Winton Release Date: October 2019

For the past seventeen years, Dr. Stuart Eisendrath has piloted research into the therapeutic effects of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) on people experiencing clinical depression. Since then, by helping people recognize that they don't have to change the content of their thoughts but can find relief simply by changing how they relate to their thoughts, Eisendrath has seen dramatic improvements in people's symptoms and quality of life nearly every day. Eisendrath and his team worked for nearly a decade to extend MBCT's reach to sufferers who had not recovered through treatment or who wanted an alternative approach to conventional treatments. Through this program actual, measurable brain changes occur. Easily practiced breath exercises, meditations, and innovative visualizations release readers from what can often feel like the tyranny of their thoughts. Freedom of thought, feeling, and action is the life-altering result.

The Highly Sensitive Man Audiobook

The Highly Sensitive Man

Author: Tom Falkenstein Narrator: Jack Farrar Release Date: October 2019

With a foreword from acclaimed psychologist, Dr Elaine Aron, comes a timely and invaluable book that will help redefine masculinity and reveal how high sensitivity can enrich men's lives, their communities, and the lives of those who love them. Highly sensitive people think deeply, empathize instinctively, and behave in an ethical way that benefits everyone. Today, with the negative effects of 'toxic masculinity' and aggressive behaviour in evidence all around us, we need highly sensitive people - especially men - more than ever. Yet for men, being highly sensitive brings distinct challenges, such as gender stereotypes that portray them as too emotional or not 'manly' enough. Cognitive behavioural psychotherapist Tom Falkenstein offers the first psychological guide that specifically addresses highly sensitive men and those who care about them, and explores the unique advantages and obstacles they face. Drawing from his training with pioneer in the field Dr. Elaine Aron, and his own ground-breaking work, Falkenstein incorporates the most up-to-date research on high sensitivity, how it relates to male identity, and provides one-of-a-kind advice and practical tools, including: • Self-assessment tests to measure high sensitivity • Strategies to cope with overstimulation and intense emotions • Exercises that enhance relaxation, mindfulness, and acceptance • Advice on self-care and self-compassion • Techniques to deal with situations that highly sensitive people often find difficult • Interviews with men who have learned to live well with high sensitivity • Insights into the key role that highly sensitive men have to play in today's world

Toil & Trouble: A Memoir Audiobook

Toil & Trouble: A Memoir

Author: Augusten Burroughs Narrator: Anne Bobby, Augusten Burroughs, Gabra Zackman, Robin Miles Release Date: October 2019

'[Toil & Trouble] is fully brought to life in a complete and unabridged 'theatre of the mind' audio book experience by the narrative team of Augusten Burroughs, Anne Bobby, Robin Miles, and Gabra Zackman.' - Midwest Book Review From the number one New York Times bestselling author comes another stunning memoir that is tender, touching...and just a little spooky. 'Here's a partial list of things I don't believe in: God. The Devil. Heaven. Hell. Bigfoot. Ancient Aliens. Past lives. Life after death. Vampires. Zombies. Reiki. Homeopathy. Rolfing. Reflexology. Note that 'witches' and 'witchcraft' are absent from this list. The thing is, I wouldn't believe in them, and I would privately ridicule any idiot who did, except for one thing: I am a witch.' For as long as Augusten Burroughs could remember, he knew things he shouldn't have known. He manifested things that shouldn't have come to pass. And he told exactly no one about this, save one person: his mother. His mother reassured him that it was all perfectly normal, that he was descended from a long line of witches, going back to the days of the early American colonies. And that this family tree was filled with witches. It was a bond that he and his mother shared--until the day she left him in the care of her psychiatrist to be raised in his family (but that's a whole other story). After that, Augusten was on his own. On his own to navigate the world of this tricky power; on his own to either use or misuse this gift. From the hilarious to the terrifying, Toil & Trouble is a chronicle of one man's journey to understand himself, to reconcile the powers he can wield with things with which he is helpless. There are very few things that are coincidences, as you will learn in Toil & Trouble. Ghosts are real, trees can want to kill you, beavers are the spawn of Satan, houses are alive, and in the end, love is the most powerful magic of all.
