            'I just want to warn you. You're going to dive to the end of the cave. You're going to see these kids. They're all looking healthy and happy and smiley. Then, you're going to swim away, and they're probably all going to die.' For seventeen days, the world watched and held its bre...ath as the Wild Boar soccer team were trapped deep in a cave in Thailand. Marooned beyond flooded cave passages after unexpected rains, they were finally rescued, one-by-one, against almost impossible odds, by an international cave-diving team which included Australians Dr Richard Harris and Dr Craig Challen. These two men were chosen for their medical expertise and cave diving knowledge, but this dangerous rescue asked so much more of them. They had to remain calm under extreme pressure and intense scrutiny, adapt to constantly changing circumstances and importantly, build trust among the rescue team and with the young boys and their coach, whose lives were in their hands. Here is the story of these two Australian men who became international heroes - it is a story of determination, cunning and triumph that will long be remembered.

            In Use It or Lose It Paul McIntyre, host of ABC Radio's 'Medical Matters', sorts the fact from the fiction and reveals the practical measures we can all take to keep our body in good shape and our brain sharp and alert. Because when it comes to positive ageing, our physical and m...ental health are one and the same. Believe it or not, preventing a disease as serious as dementia is as much about pursuing interests and having a flourishing social life as it is about standard health prescriptions. Good nutrition, regular exercise, relaxation, social interaction and healthy activities are paramount for your body and your brain and your emotional outlook as you get older. With key advice from experts in diet, nutrition, dementia research and psychology, and lots of activities and suggestions to inspire you, including some delicious health-boosting recipes, Use It or Lose It is an essential guide to remaining vital through mid-life and beyond.

            'Gabrielle Jackson's reporting for The Guardian on endometriosis helped us blow the disease out of the water , according to one leading specialist, turning what had been known as the silent disease into a major news story read by hundreds of thousands of people around the world. ...Women responded vociferously and in great numbers, showing that Gabrielle's work had tapped into a worldwide need for information on endometriosis and other women's health issues. This book could not be more timely or important.' - Katharine Viner, editor of The Guardian 'Gabrielle Jackson is a brilliant journalist and a wonderful feminist-and incapable of being dull.' - Emily Wilson, Editor of New Scientist In 2015, Guardian journalist Gabrielle Jackson wrote a piece about her own struggles with the crippling pain caused by endometriosis. It triggered such an overwhelming response that the Guardian launched a world-wide investigation into the disease. This time the response was so huge it almost crashed their website. Thousands contacted the Guardian and hundreds of thousands more read and shared the material. This was the catalyst for Gabrielle thinking more widely about women's pain and how it is viewed and treated not just by the medical profession but wider society. The stark reality is that women's pain is not taken as seriously as that of men's. We are more likely to be dismissed, fobbed off and denied treatment than men even though our bodies are vastly more complex. One of the most important things we can do to help ourselves is to understand more about how our bodies work.
