The books read well as stand-alone novels and as part of a series. There are some advantages from reading them in chronological order but no problem if you want to cherry pick as you come across the books. They're not my favourite crime books but I certainly wouldn't say no to them on a long journey.

Study 329, which was a trial of paroxetine for depression in adolescents, is often held up as the poster child for fraud in clinical trials of psychiatric drugs. In Children of the cure: Missing data, lost lives and antidepressants, David Healy, Joanna Le Noury and Julie Wood painstakingly detail the entire sordid affair, including efforts to get the study retracted and to reanalyse the patient-level data. However, they do so with a larger purpose in mind. Study 329 is not presented as an aberration, but rather as emblematic of a systemic failure in modern medicine (or at least in psychiatry), which leads to prescribing practices that do great harm.

Talking Cure is a timely and enticing excursion into the art of good conversation. Paula Marantz Cohen reveals how conversation connects us in ways that social media never can and explains why simply talking to each other freely and without guile may be the cure to what ails our troubled society.Drawing on her lifelong immersion in literature and culture and her decades of experience as a teacher and critic, Cohen argues that we learn to converse in our families and then carry that knowledge into a broader world where we encounter diverse opinions and sensibilities. She discusses the role of food in encouraging conversation, the challenges of writing dialogue in fiction, the pros and cons of Zoom, the relationship of conversation to vaudeville acts, and the educational value of a good college seminar where students learn to talk about ideas. Cohen looks at some of the famous groups of writers and artists in history whose conversation fed their creativity, and details some of the habits that can result in bad conversation.Blending the immediacy of a beautifully crafted memoir with the conviviality of an intimate gathering with friends, Talking Cure makes a persuasive case for the civilizing value of conversation and is essential reading for anyone interested in the chatter that fuels culture.

Paula Marantz Cohen is Distinguished Professor of English and Dean of the Pennoni Honors College at Drexel University. Her books include Of Human Kindness: What Shakespeare Teaches Us about Empathy; Alfred Hitchcock: The Legacy of Victorianism; Silent Film and the Triumph of the American Myth; and the bestselling novel Jane Austen in Boca.

This patient handbook provides an easy to follow self-treatment plan to quickly and effectively diagnose, treat, alleviate and manage debilitating back and related pains, even for the long-term sufferer. First published in 1980 and the first in best-selling Treat Your Own series by internationally renowned Robin McKenzie OBE, this book distils the essence of the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, as taught to medical professionals worldwide, in an easily accessible format direct to the sufferer. Numerous international studies have confirmed that the McKenzie Method allows patients to take control of their own pain and postural management, cure sciatica amongst other complaints, avoid surgery and a long-term costly dependence upon clinicians.

Ella Berthoud and Susan Elderkin met as English Literature students at Cambridge University, where they began giving novels to each other whenever one of them seemed in need of a boost. Ella went on to study fine art and become a painter and art teacher. Susan became a novelist (Sunset Over Chocolate Mountains and The Voices, both Fourth Estate) and in 2003 was listed by Granta as one of the Twenty Best of Young British Novelists. She also teaches creative writing and writes travel pieces and book reviews for various newspapers. In 2008 they set up a bibliotherapy service through The School of Life in London, and since then have been prescribing books either virtually or in person to clients all over the world. The Novel Cure is their first book together.

"Medicine" (Chinese: 藥; pinyin: Yào) is a short story by Chinese writer Lu Xun (Lu Hsun). Written in 1919, it was published in 1922 as part of Call to Arms, a collection of short stories penned by the writer. The story recounts the tale of Old Chuan and his wife, whose son is dying from tuberculosis. The couple uses the savings from their tea shop to buy a folk medicine cure for their son. Despite their faith in the medicine they procured, it does not work and Little Chuan passes away. The work's overarching themes ask the reader to question themselves in regards to the importance of superstition, as well as to man's constant quest for meaning and control of the circumstances encountered while living in an increasingly complicated world.

When Old Chuan arrives in the tea shop, his wife immediately asks him if he has succeeded in purchasing the coveted medicine for their son. Upon her husband's confirmation, they confer in the kitchen as Little Chuan sits at a table and eats, his body obviously weakened by his illness. Husband and wife then set out to cook the bloodied steamed bread in a lotus leaf, paying no mind to a curious customer who inquires as to the peculiar smell emerging from the oven. Both parents serve the roll to their child and encourage him to eat, insisting that he will be cured after he is done. They wait side by side, looking on almost breathlessly as their son clears his plate, hoping to see sudden signs of recovery. Little Chuan starts to cough again as he feels the gaze of his parents on him; his mother tells him to sleep it off and that he will be better upon waking. She stays with him until he falls asleep before covering him with a blanket and leaving.

An unknown amount of time passes. The wife of Old Chuan walks down the path to a cemetery to visit her son's grave. The cure did not work and he presumably passed away recently. At the same time, another woman visits a grave right across from Little Chuan's. She is the mother of the executed revolutionary. The two women behold, for a time, a wreath of red and white flowers left on the grave of the executed man. Similar flowers grow on Little Chuan's grave, only they are scarcer and solely white. The mother of the revolutionary cries and asks her son to make a nearby crow fly on his grave as a sign of his presence. The crow stands still. The two women sit together for a certain period of time. Little Chuan's mother eventually urges the other to go, at which point the older woman mutters "what does it mean?".[2]

The short story relies heavily on symbols, namely that of traditional medicine and tradition to condemn the woes of a world that relies on superstitious values rather than embracing the virtues of modernization.[3] To Lu Hsun, the persistence of such superstitious traditions is due to of ignorance as well as their persistent use by malevolent charlatans to profit off of this lack of knowledge.[3] The use of the fallen revolutionary's blood to strengthen Little Chuan's weakening body symbolizes an attempt to "preserve vitality";[3] when the cure fails, it demonstrates that this is not enough to better the woes present in Chinese society. Lu Hsun believes that modernization of thought and practices could be achieved through literature.[4] Through the theme of superstition, Lu Hsun aims to demonstrate that the only real path to a better future is the one offered by modern medicine[5] and revolutionary thought,[3] rather than tradition.

The consumption of another's blood is reported by the characters of "Medicine" as being able to treat Little Chuan's ills by imbuing him with the fallen revolutionary's life force. Revolutionaries used blood to heal the suffering of society, but the nation healed its own son with the blood of a revolutionary. As a revolutionary writer, Lu Hsun used this sad story to cure people's ignorant and numb spirit and thought.[6] The image of the executed prisoner being fed to another is used by Lu Hsun to evoke the oppressiveness of Chinese society and its exploitation of the members who are part of its society.[7] It is a sort of state sanctioned instance of cannibalism, where man feeds upon man and stunts the nation's growth.[7] This is why revolutionary ideas are key to Lu Hsun: old, traditional institutions are portrayed in this story as feeding on younger, more modern thought processes that are trying to emerge.[7] In order for the nation to grow, antiquated notions (including traditional conceptions of illness and health) must be disposed of and replaced by modern conceptions of being.[7][5] Lu Hsun hoped that people would wake up and embrace the changes of times rather than become numb.[6]

Now fast forward to 2000. Imagine that you were suffering from cancer. Imagine that you were told that you could be cured of the disease in just five days by identifying and then removing the cause of your cancer. Imagine that all you had to do was buy about thirty five dollars worth of parts and build a simple electronic device that would tell you exactly what to do. Imagine that you were instructed to eat a certain food, then squeeze a pimple on your body and place the fluid that is released on the device next to a sealed plastic bag of the same food. Imagine that you were then to connect the contraption to your knuckles by means of two leads and listen to the sound emanating from a little speaker in the apparatus. 041b061a72
