The Cheating Cell: How Evolution Helps Us Understand and Treat Cancer Audiobook

The Cheating Cell: How Evolution Helps Us Understand and Treat Cancer

Author: Athena Aktipis Narrator: Laurel Lefkow Release Date: March 2020

A fundamental and groundbreaking reassessment of how we view and manage cancer When we think of the forces driving cancer, we don’t necessarily think of evolution. But evolution and cancer are closely linked, for the historical processes that created life also created cancer. The Cheating Cell delves into this extraordinary relationship, and shows that by understanding cancer’s evolutionary origins, researchers can come up with more effective, revolutionary treatments. Athena Aktipis goes back billions of years to explore when unicellular forms became multicellular organisms. Within these bodies of cooperating cells, cheating ones arose, overusing resources and replicating out of control, giving rise to cancer. Aktipis illustrates how evolution has paved the way for cancer’s ubiquity, and why it will exist as long as multicellular life does. Even so, she argues, this doesn’t mean we should give up on treating cancer—in fact, evolutionary approaches offer new and promising options for the disease’s prevention and treatments that aim at long-term management rather than simple eradication. Looking across species—from sponges and cacti to dogs and elephants—we are discovering new mechanisms of tumor suppression and the many ways that multicellular life-forms have evolved to keep cancer under control. By accepting that cancer is a part of our biological past, present, and future—and that we cannot win a war against evolution—treatments can become smarter, more strategic, and more humane. Unifying the latest research from biology, ecology, medicine, and social science, The Cheating Cell challenges us to rethink cancer’s fundamental nature and our relationship to it.

Can We Be Happier? Audiobook

Can We Be Happier?

Author: Richard Layard Narrator: Rupert Bush Release Date: March 2020

Most people now realise that economic growth, however desirable, will not solve all our problems. Instead, we need a philosophy and a science which encompasses a much fuller range of human need and experience. This book argues that the goal for a society must be the greatest possible all round happiness, and shows how each of us can become more effective creators of happiness, both as citizens and in our own organisations. Written with Richard Layard's characteristic clarity, it provides hard evidence that increasing happiness is the right aim, and that it can be achieved. Its language is simple, its evidence impressive, its effect inspiring. Richard Layard is founder and former director of the Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics. He is the author of the ground-breaking Happiness: Lessons from a New Science, which has been published in nineteen languages, and (with David Clark) Thrive: The Power of Psychological Therapies. He is co-editor of the annual World Happiness Report, and has been instrumental in the development of improving access to psychological therapies in the UK.

How Health Innovators Maximize Market Success Audiobook

How Health Innovators Maximize Market Success

Author: Dr. Roxie Mooney Narrator: Dr. Roxie Mooney Release Date: March 2020

Commercializing an innovation is hard, especially in healthcare. Health innovators often assume that just because an innovation solves a real problem or is technically and functionally superior to competing solutions, it will automatically result in commercial success. This is far from reality. In fact, 95 percent of innovations brought to market fail to reach an adequate level of customer acceptance and profitability. Accenture studied nearly 900 digital health startups and found that just over half were 'zombie startups, at risk to die.' Health innovators want--and need--to know the best strategy to adopt to increase their chances of market success. There are many things that can get in the way. What I find again and again is that innovators either confuse or interchange the processes of launch and commercialization, or they focus completely on one and ignore the other. Based on my research and experience, launch and commercialization are different functions of the innovation process, but it's commercialization success that ultimately drives market success. So what drives that commercialization success? The people you need to be successful with. My research indicates that success in the mainstream market depends on success with early adopters, those who try (and love) your product first. If you are not successful with them, you cannot be successful over the long term. How Health Innovators Maximize Market Success is written for health innovators who want to discover not only how to avoid failure, but also how to adopt the key components of an early adoption commercialization strategy. By applying these insights, health innovators will not only increase their chances of success, but ensure that they are making the most of their healthcare innovations.

Love Drugs: The Chemical Future of Relationships Audiobook

Love Drugs: The Chemical Future of Relationships

Author: Brian D. Earp, Julian Savulescu Narrator: Brian D. Earp Release Date: February 2020

Is there a pill for love? What about an 'anti-love drug,' to help us get over an ex? This book argues that certain psychoactive substances, including MDMA-the active ingredient in Ecstasy-may help ordinary couples work through relationship difficulties and strengthen their connection. Others may help sever an emotional connection during a breakup. These substances already exist, and they have transformative implications for how we think about love. This book builds a case for conducting research into 'love drugs' and 'anti-love drugs' and explores their ethical implications for individuals and society. Scandalously, Western medicine tends to ignore the interpersonal effects of drug-based interventions. Why are we still in the dark about the effects of these drugs on romantic partnerships? And how can we overhaul scientific research norms to take relationships more fully into account? Ethicists Brian D. Earp and Julian Savulescu say that the time to think through such questions is now. Love Drugs arms us with the latest scientific knowledge and a set of ethical tools that we can use to decide if these sorts of medications should be a part of our society. Or whether a chemical romance will be right for us.
