    While supervising a small group of interns at a major New York medical center, Dr. Robert Marion asked three of them to keep a careful diary over the course of a year. Andy, Mark, and Amy vividly describe their real-life lessons in treating very sick children; confronting child abuse and the awful human impact of the AIDS epidemic; skirting the indifference of the hospital bureaucracy; and overcoming their own fears, insecurities, and constant fatigue. Their stories are harrowing and often funny; their personal triumph is unforgettable. 
    This updated edition of The Intern Blues includes a new preface from the author discussing the status of medical training in America today and a new afterword updating the reader on the lives of the three young interns who first shared their stories with readers more than a decade ago.

There she witnessed the greed, lust and rage such a beast could inciteÔÇöand acquired her own very dark secret.Cordain is the mind and soul of the beast, thrust now into the body of the most hated man in the realm. But now that he is a man, can he claim the heart of the maid he's always loved?

    In the last ten years, Carolly Hanson has died six times. First in a car crash, then of TB. Beaten, stoned, and shot in the back. The last time, she suffocated from pneumonia.Now she's awake, again, and in the arms of James Oscar Henry Northram, Earl of Traynern.Carolly Hanson must be in training to be an angel. Why else would she keep dying and reappearing in different places and times? Clearly she is to help people, help them find true love, if she is to win her wings.And the handsome Earl, clearly a stiff-backed, dark-brooding man of means, will be her next victimÔÇöer, beneficiary.James Oscar Henry Northram is fascinated by Carolly's odd sense of humor, and compelled by her strange forthright manner and complete lack of interest in trapping him into marriage.He also thinks poor Carolly is a Bedlam escapee and isn't the least bit interested in the women she keeps pushing in his direction.Why must Carolly be forced to suffer death only to live again? Could the answer be as close as his embrace?REVIEWS:"A refreshingly unique "time travel" (loosely speaking) for fans who delight in something rather different." ~Harriet Klausner, Amazon.com #1 reviewer"Light, airy and sometimes deadly serious.

    --> 
    The Ultimate Chinese Martial Art — The Science of the Weaving Stance Bagua 64 Forms and the Wellness Applications has three well integrated parts. Part One describes the cultural, historical and scientific background of the mysterious inner style martial art — Bagua Palm — which used to be taught in a small circle of the Royal families in China. Part Two gives a brief and yet detailed instructions on the techniques and step by step exercises of Bagua Palms with illustrations, including the example of the famous Weaving Stance Bagua 64 Forms. Part Three summarizes the wellness applications of the Bagua Palms as an inner style Chinese martial art. 
    The aim of this book is to help all people on this planet to have a better understanding about wellness and the most effective way to achieve it. The book will thus ultimately make its way to the short list of books which truly leave their marks on the progress of human civilization. The less than sophisticated style of writing makes this book an easy and helpful reading for people from all walks of life. 
    This book is not just about Chinese martial art. It is also about the link between Chinese culture and martial art. With practical instructions on the actual exercise, this book will benefit not just practitioners and trainers in Chinese martial art but effectively all people who read it. This book is not only going to be the martial art book of the year, but the martial art book of the 21st century. 
    This is the first martial art book written by martial art practitioners who have thorough understanding of both physics and actual fighting, with a solid background in Chinese culture. All the three authors of the book have over 40 years of extensive experience each in Chinese martial art. In contrast to conventional Chinese martial art scripts, this book is written by three Chinese authors in plain and vivid English, which is both filled with true understanding of the unique part of Chinese culture and tuned to the cognitive habits of the westerners. --> -->0Readership: People from all walks of life. -->Wellness, Culture, Cultivate, Bagua, Wushu, Gongfu, Inner Martial Art, Taoism, Qigong0

    All You Need Is Love and Other...

    Why is it so difficult to remain married in thetwenty-first century, and what can you do about it?  
    We all know that half of today's marriages end in divorce, but we tend to believe that our own marriages are safe. As psychiatrist John Jacobs explains in this fresh and impassioned book, marriages today are incredibly fragile, and unless a couple understands what is making contemporary marriage so vulnerable to dissolution, the marriage is at risk. 
    Part of the problem is that people refuse to see how social and historical forces have changed the very meaning of marriage, causing serious interpersonal unhappiness. Because of increased longevity, married people live together longer than at any time in history. There's been an erosion of the social and cultural forces that traditionally kept marriages together. Confusion over gender-role responsibilities, increased expectations of sexual satisfaction, and intense time pressures on couples to work and be successful all create marital stress. 
    And yet, most people don't acknowledge the problems in their marriage until it is too late. We tend to believe in the "lies of marriage" -- such concepts as soul mates, unconditional love, that children improve a relationship, that the sexual revolution has made marital sex more pleasurable, or that egalitarian marriage offers couples easy solutions -- and forget to engage in the constant hardwork required to keep our marriages alive. 
    Dr. Jacobs believes that most marriages have significant problems at some time, but until we recognize the new realities of marriage and develop the skills required to sustain a loving, intimate relationship, marriages are at risk. 
    Of course marriage is about love. But that's just the beginning.
