            Kai is different. Kai, the doctors will eventually realize, is autistic. Of course, like everyone on the spectrum, Kai isn't just autistic - he's so much more than that. Kai is Kai. Doctors used to find one case of autism among every five thousand people. Today, according to a st...udy by the US Department of Health and Human Services, the ratio is one in fifty-eight. Scientists speak of an epidemic. Kai may be different, but he is not alone. Henry, Kai's father, is one of the world's most famous neuroscientists, the man behind the billion dollar Blue Brain Project to build a supercomputer model of the human brain. Nevertheless, when his son began withdrawing, Henry was as helpless as all the other parents. He asked himself the same questions they did: What is autism? How can I help my child? He researched for fifteen years. His findings would upend everything we thought we knew about autism. They would offer us a whole new vantage from which to consider all disorders of the mind. If Henry had just been a scientist, even a great one, he would have failed. He only succeeded thanks to Kai, the boy who changed everything.

            Women are twice as likely as men to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease, and women are far more likely than men to suffer from anxiety, depression, migraines, brain injuries and strokes. The XX Brain reveals groundbreaking research showing that women's brains age distinctly fro...m men's, due mostly to the decline of a key brain-protective hormone: estrogen. Until now, medical research has focused on 'bikini medicine', assuming that women are essentially men with breasts and tubes. The XX Brain reveals how the two powerful X chromosomes that distinguish women from men impact women's brains first and foremost. Taking on all aspects of women's health, including brain fog, memory lapses, depression, stress, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, and the increased risk of dementia, Dr. Mosconi introduces cutting-edge, evidence-based approaches to protect the female brain, including diet and lifestyle strategies proven to work for women. She also examines the controversies about soy and hormonal replacement therapy, the perils of environmental toxins, and gut health. Luckily, it is never too late to take care of yourself. The XX Brain gives women the first plan to address the unique risks and strengths of the female brain for optimal, lifelong brain health.

            One doctor's testament to the importance of listening - truly listening - to women and their medical experiences of pregnancy and childbirth. Although there are countless books aimed at expectant mothers and fathers, on subjects from prenatal nutrition to birthing methods, there ...is a lack of works that attempt to illuminate, unpack, and chronicle the complex, potentially life-and-death truth of this fundamental human experience. High Risk fills that gap. From an expert in maternal-foetal medicine - the subspecialty of obstetrics that concerns high-risk pregnancies - here is a timely and unflinching account of all that pregnancy, labour, and birth can entail. As an outspoken champion of women's health, a mother of four, and a humane, wry, and altogether remarkable writer, Dr Chavi Eve Karkowsky tells of miracles and joy, but also of challenge and loss - illustrating the complexity of reproduction and the health services that surround it. With historical insight and journalistic verve, she unpacks what is involved for women, for a family, and for us as a society, and explores what's at risk when these aspects of life remain clouded in mystery and misinformation.

            This is the story of a family led to confront a crisis they had never foreseen. Aged eleven, their eldest daughter has stopped eating and speaking. Alongside diagnoses of autism and selective mutism, her parents slowly become aware of another source for her distress: her imperill...ed future on a rapidly heating planet. Steered by her determination to understand the truth, the family begins to see the deep connections between their own and the planet's suffering. Against forces that try to silence them, disparaging them for being different, they discover ways to strengthen, heal, and act in the world. And then one day, fifteen-year-old Greta decides to go on strike.
