            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.

            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.

            Greta is eleven years old, and she has stopped eating. She has stopped talking. And she has become fixated on the horrors of the climate crisis, which creep into news bulletins each night. Her parents grapple desperately, hopelessly, to make her better; her sister takes a turn fo...r the worse; day by day, their family life begins to unravel. Four years later, Greta sits outside Swedish Parliament. Her parents watch on as she eats vegan pad thai and chats with a journalist. She is ready for what's coming next, and so are they. They have allowed her to skip school. They have changed their habits. They have quit their jobs, and they have joined their daughter in her fight for the living planet - a fight which will change the world, and save their family. Scenes from the Heart is the remarkable true story of two parents and two daughters, who together have transformed the way we think and talk about our earth. Revealing the intimate, hitherto unseen impact of climate change on our children's and our own mental health, it is a passionate rallying cry for us all to wake up and see things differently - and then join them in the struggle for ourselves and our living planet.

            An eye-opening, gripping and moving account of dealing with some of medicine's most complicated challenges As a trainee doctor, fascinated by the ways the brain and nervous system signal problems with the body's wiring, Niall Tubridy fell in love with neurology. This was high sta...kes detective work where answers could be life-changing. The young doctor who relished the intellectual puzzle soon became even more intrigued by the human stories behind each set of symptoms. And he found his own character tested. How do you handle such high pressure work - often with sad outcomes for patients - and remain grounded and positive? Can you? Just One More Question is the story of Niall Tubridy's life in neurology. It includes gripping accounts of his patients - encounters that are, by turn, moving, dramatic and funny - and using simple and illuminating language he explains well-known conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and motor neurone disease. In addition, he reflects candidly on his life and the reasons he, a doctor's son, went into medicine and what he has learned about himself along the way. With great honesty, he scrutinizes his own actions and reactions so that Just One More Question becomes a brave exploration of the big question - how can I be a better doctor?Dr. Tubridy's book is an extraordinary and revealing insight into the human challenge of working in this most complex area of medicine.
