    Heart: A History

    Rs. 2,290.00

    Sandeep Jauhar

     

    • A PBS NEWSHOUR-NEW YORK TIMES BOOK CLUB PICK
    • Mail on Sunday Book of the Year
    • Science Friday Best Science Book of 2018
    • A Los Angeles Public Library Best Nonfiction Book of 2018
    • Shortlisted for the 2019 Wellcome Book Prize

     

    “The cardiologist Sandeep Jauhar has become a Dante of modern medicine, with his earlier memoirs, “Intern” (2008) and “Doctored” (2014), casting the progress from training to career as a path studded with suffering, indignity and ethical hazard. His latest book, “Heart: A History,” is something of a “Paradiso,” pointing to the field’s brightest and noblest stars while recognizing just how much darkness is still left in the firmament . . . Poignant and chattily erudite.” ―Laura Kolbe, The Wall Street Journal

     

    “Sandeep Jauhar, a New York cardiologist and the author of two medical memoirs, has written a book of unusual depth and richness about a subject that concerns us all . . . Heart: A History is elegantly conceived and still more elegantly executed, with a narrative that flits effortlessly between medieval Persia and contemporary America, medical scholarship and personal anecdote . . . Jauhar writes with a vital, pulsating energy.” Thomas Morris, The Times Literary Supplement

     

    “[Sandeep Jauhar’s] gripping new book, Heart a History, had me nearly as enthralled with this pulsating body part as [Jauhar] seems to be. The tone―a physician excited about his specialty―takes a sharp turn from his first two memoirs . . . Jauhar hooks the reader of Heart from the first few pages.” ―Randi Hutter Epstein, The New York Times Book Review

     

    “This is both a history of surgical interventions to heal the heart, and a personal meditation on illness, family, loss, and living. [Jauhar], who has lost several family members to heart disease, takes time to examine both the work of doctors trying to fix hearts and the lives of people living with heart disease, for a book that is touching and ultimately, hopeful.” ―Los Angeles Public Library, “Best of 2018”

    Super Genes: The Hidden Key to Total Well-Being

    Rs. 2,490.00

    Deepak Chopra and Rudolph E. Tanzi

     

    “The concept that biology is destiny is one of the most pathological and toxic exaggerations to emerge during the entire scientific era. This hard-core materialistic view has been a kind of psychological enslavement that has pushed many people into nihilism and despair. In Super Genes, Drs. Deepak Chopra and Rudolph E. Tanzi discuss new evidence that our genes are not our masters, but they respond in large measure to our choices and behaviors.  The resulting view honors not just the body but mind and spirit as well—a vision that is as bright and hopeful as the old view was morbid and depressing.  Super Genes is an important book.  It will empower anyone who reads it, because it expands our view of what it means to be human.”
    –Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters

     

    “In Super Genes, Drs. Deepak Chopra and Rudolph Tanzi illustrate the interplay of nature and nurture using cutting edge genetic science and argue persuasively that adapting one’s lifestyle can maximize the potential to transcend the inherited susceptibilities handed down to us from our parents.”
    –James Gusella, Ph.D., Director, Center for Human Genetic Research Harvard Medical School

     

    “Once thought to be the domain of genes, the control of health and behavior is now dynamically linked to the environment, and more importantly, our perception of the environmentSuper Genes, by Deepak Chopra and Rudy Tanzi, is a paradigm-shattering synthesis of epigenetic science that offers an easy-to-understand explanation of the mechanisms by which consciousness and environment control our genetic activity. Drs. Chopra and Tanzi’s contribution is a valuable resource that empowers us to become the masters of our fate rather than the ‘victims’ of our heredity.”
    –Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D., Epigenetic scientist and bestselling author of The Biology of BeliefSpontaneous Evolution and The Honeymoon Effect

     

    “The concept that biology is destiny is one of the most pathological and toxic exaggerations to emerge during the entire scientific era.

    –Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters

     

    “We used to think everything about us was either our genetics or our environment. But in Super Genes, Deepak Chopra and Rudi Tanzi adeptly teach us that it’s all about both—how tightly they are intertwined. And what we can do about it.”
    –Eric Topol, MD, author The Patient Will See You Now, Professor of Genomics, The Scripps Research Institute

     

    “Flawlessly weaving together the complicated science of genetics with the touching stories of very real people, my friends Deepak and Rudolph have written a book that you won’t put down. You will find yourself scribbling furious notes, and sharing your new wisdom with the people you love. First they gave us all the ability to have Super Brains, and now they have done the same with our Super Genes.”
    –Sanjay Gupta, MD, Neurosurgeon and author of Chasing LifeCheating Death and Monday Mornings

     

    “Our genes are a predisposition, but they are not our fate.  The biological mechanisms that affect our health and well-being are often extraordinarily dynamic—for better and for worse.  When we eat well, move more, stress less, and love more, our bodies often have a remarkable ability to transform and heal.  Super Genes is a superb contribution to our growing knowledge that mind, brain, genome, and microbiome can act as a single system.  Drs. Chopra and Tanzi continue to make pioneering contributions that are bringing integrative medicine into the mainstream.  Highly recommended!”
    –Dean Ornish, M.D., Founder and President, Preventive Medicine Research Institute Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco

    The Invention of Surgery: A History of Modern Medicine: From the Renaissance to the Implant Revolution

    Rs. 2,490.00

    Dr. David Schneider

     

    “Brace yourself! The Invention of Surgery is a globetrotting historical adventure, told from the inside of the operating room. Through a series of colorful, bizarre and, at times, stomach-churning stories, Dr. Schneider reveals how the human, messy side of surgical history adds up to the wondrous advances we see today. This is medical writing at its most exhilarating.”
    – Michael Paul Mason, author of Head Cases: Stories of Brain Injury and Its Aftermath

     

    “Comprehensively researched, deftly told, and radiating both intellect and passion, The Invention of Surgery is essential reading for anyone interested not only in the history but also in the future of medicine.  This book is a labor of love, and it shows.”
    – Frank Huyler, author of The Blood of Strangers: Stories from Emergency Medicine

     

    “Rampaging through surgery’s history, David Schneider’s unique take on its heroes and their achievements is cut with poignant, pithy stories from his own experience of repairing our bodies. He celebrates the audacity of putting something foreign inside of us, ruminates on its current costs and ethics, and asks us to join him on a fascinating ride into the future of implants.”
    – Helen Bynum PhD, author of Spitting Blood: The History of Tuberculosis

     

    Bold and compelling… Uniformly excellent, and often wryly amusing.– The Wall Street Journal

     

    “A history of surgery that is informative, entertaining, and highly readable.” –Library Journal
