The Second Brain: A Groundbreaking New Understanding of Nervous Disorders of the Stomach and Intesti Audiobook

The Second Brain: A Groundbreaking New Understanding of Nervous Disorders of the Stomach and Intesti

Author: Michael Gershon Narrator: Peter Berkrot Release Date: July 2019

"Persuasive, impassioned... hopeful news [for those] suffering from functional bowel disease."  - New York Times Book Review Dr. Gershon's groundbreaking book fills the gap between what you need to know-and what your doctor has time to tell you. Dr. Michael Gershon has devoted his career to understanding the human bowel (the stomach, esophagus, small intestine, and colon). His thirty years of research have led to an extraordinary rediscovery: nerve cells in the gut that act as a brain. This 'second brain' can control our gut all by itself. Our two brains-the one in our head and the one in our bowel-must cooperate. If they do not, then there is chaos in the gut and misery in the head-everything from 'butterflies' to cramps, from diarrhea to constipation. Dr. Gershon's work has led to radical new understandings about a wide range of gastrointestinal problems including gastroenteritis, nervous stomach, and irritable bowel syndrome. The Second Brain represents a quantum leap in medical knowledge and is already benefiting patients whose symptoms were previously dismissed as neurotic or 'it's all in your head.'

Biology Textbook Audiobook

Biology Textbook

Author: Introbooks Narrator: Introbooks Release Date: July 2019

The word Biology has been derived from two Greek words, 'Bios' meaning 'Life' and 'Logos' meaning 'Study' and thus is defined as the science that carries out studies of life, living organisms, and their evolution. Biology is concerned with carrying out studies of physical structure, molecular interactions, physiological mechanisms, development, evolution and chemical processes taking place within a living organism. For biology, 'cell' is regarded to be the basic unit of life, 'gene' as the basic unit of heredity and 'evolution' is considered to be the engine that is responsible for driving the processes of creation and extinction of species. The person possessing the knowledge of biology has the opportunities to work in a variety of fields, namely Research, healthcare, environmental conservation, education, forensic science, biotechnology, economics, business and industries, government policies and many others. It has been seen that biology also referred to as the study of life has facilitated the people in shaping up the world to some extent. Within biology lies many reliable and credible answers that explanation as to why the things happen in a scientific manner. The field of biology consists of numerous research fields and like, the other fields of sciences make use of the scientific method for procuring results. This gives the biologists the appropriate space and the chance that they require for display of ideas along with the evidence and also provides with the opportunity of testing others' ideas for their own selves.

Vagina: A re-education Audiobook

Vagina: A re-education

Author: Lynn Enright Narrator: Lynn Enright Release Date: July 2019

Part memoir, part practical guide to the vagina, this indispensable book sifts through myths and misinformation with the aim of empowering women with vital knowledge about their own bodies. From earliest childhood, girls are misled about their bodies, encouraged to describe their genitalia with cute names rather than anatomically correct terms. Girls grow up feeling ashamed about their periods, about the appearance of their vulvas, about their own desires. They grow up without a full and honest sex education, and this lack of knowledge has serious consequences: the number of women attending cervical screening appointments in the UK is at a 20-year low. Vagina provides girls and women with information they need about their own bodies. It confronts taboos such as abortion, miscarriage, infertility and masturbation. It tackles vital social issues like period poverty, female genital mutilation and the rights of transgender women. We need to talk about women's sexual and reproductive health, about our experiences of sex and pregnancy and pain and pleasure. Vagina: A Re-Education will help us do just that. 'Shocking, brilliant, important. A fine addition to the feminist canon'. - Emma Jane Unsworth 'Absolutely incredible. It's educational and informative while also managing to be a fierce rallying cry for women.' Louise O'Neill

Hacking the Code of Life: How gene editing will rewrite our futures Audiobook

Hacking the Code of Life: How gene editing will rewrite our futures

Author: Nessa Carey Narrator: Karen Cass Release Date: June 2019

Just 45 years ago, the age of gene modification was born. Researchers could create glow-in-the-dark mice, farmyard animals producing drugs in their milk, and vitamin-enhanced rice that could prevent half a million people going blind every year. But now GM is rapidly being supplanted by a new system called CRISPR or ‘gene editing’. Using this approach, scientists can manipulate the genes of almost any organism with a degree of precision, ease and speed that we could only dream of ten years ago. But is it ethical to change the genetic material of organisms in a way that might be passed on to future generations? If a person is suffering from a lethal genetic disease, is it even more unethical to deny them this option? Who controls the application of this technology, when it makes ‘biohacking’—perhaps of one’s own genome—a real possibility? Nessa Carey’s book is a thrilling and timely snapshot of a technology that will radically alter our futures.

Evolution: Still a Theory in Crisis Audiobook

Evolution: Still a Theory in Crisis

Author: Michael Denton Narrator: John Mclain Release Date: June 2019

More than thirty years after his landmark book Evolution: A Theory in Crisis (1985), biologist Michael Denton revisits his earlier thesis about the inability of Darwinian evolution to explain the history of life. He argues that there remains "an irresistible consilience of evidence for rejecting Darwinian cumulative selection as the major driving force of evolution." From the origin of life to the origin of human language, the great divisions in the natural order are still as profound as ever, and they are still unsupported by the series of adaptive transitional forms predicted by Darwin. In addition, Denton makes a provocative new argument about the pervasiveness of nonadaptive order throughout biology, order that cannot be explained by the Darwinian mechanism.

The Science of Breaking Bad Audiobook

The Science of Breaking Bad

Author: Dave Trumbore, Donna J. Nelson Narrator: Tiffany Morgan, Tom Perkins Release Date: June 2019

All the science in Breaking Bad-from explosive experiments to acid-based evidence destruction-explained and analyzed for authenticity. Breaking Bad's (anti)hero Walter White (played by Emmy-winner Bryan Cranston) is a scientist, a high school chemistry teacher who displays a plaque that recognizes his 'contributions to research awarded the Nobel Prize.' During the course of five seasons, Walt practices a lot of ad hoc chemistry-from experiments that explode to acid-based evidence destruction to an amazing repertoire of methodologies for illicit meth making. But how much of Walt's science is actually scientific? In The Science of Breaking Bad, Dave Trumbore and Donna Nelson explain, analyze, and evaluate the show's portayal of science, from the pilot's opening credits to the final moments of the series finale.

Conscious: A Brief Guide to the Fundamental Mystery of the Mind Audiobook

Conscious: A Brief Guide to the Fundamental Mystery of the Mind

Author: Annaka Harris Narrator: Annaka Harris Release Date: June 2019

As concise and enlightening as Seven Brief Lessons on Physics and Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, this mind-expanding dive into the mystery of consciousness is an illuminating meditation on the self, free will, and felt experience. What is consciousness? How does it arise? And why does it exist? We take our experience of being in the world for granted. But the very existence of consciousness raises profound questions: Why would any collection of matter in the universe be conscious? How are we able to think about this? And why should we? In this wonderfully accessible audiobook, Annaka Harris guides us through the evolving definitions, philosophies, and scientific findings that probe our limited understanding of consciousness. Where does it reside, and what gives rise to it? Could it be an illusion, or a universal property of all matter? As we try to understand consciousness, we must grapple with how to define it and, in the age of artificial intelligence, who or what might possess it. Conscious offers lively and challenging arguments that alter our ideas about consciousness-allowing us to think freely about it for ourselves, if indeed we can.

Good Enough Audiobook

Good Enough

Author: Daniel S. Milo Narrator: Qarie Marshall Release Date: May 2019

Why is the genome of a salamander forty times larger than that of a human? Why does the avocado tree produce a million flowers and only a hundred fruits? Why, in short, is there so much waste in nature? In this lively and wide-ranging meditation on the curious accidents and unexpected detours on the path of life, Daniel Milo argues that we ask these questions because we've embraced a faulty conception of how evolution?and human society?really works. Good Enough offers a vigorous critique of the quasi-monopoly that Darwin's concept of natural selection has on our idea of the natural world. Darwinism excels in accounting for the evolution of traits, but it does not explain their excess in size and number. Many traits far exceed the optimal configuration to do the job, and yet the maintenance of this extra baggage does not prevent species from thriving for millions of years. Philosopher Daniel Milo aims to give the messy side of nature its due?to stand up for the wasteful and inefficient organisms that nevertheless survive and multiply. But he does not stop at the border between evolutionary theory and its social consequences. He argues provocatively that the theory of evolution through natural selection has acquired the trappings of an ethical system. Optimization, competitiveness, and innovation have become the watchwords of Western societies, yet their role in human lives?as in the rest of nature?is dangerously overrated. Imperfection is not just good enough: it may at times be essential to survival.
