About the Novel: 
 
The Hundred Penny Box is the Newbery Honor-winning story of a boy and his great-great aunt. Michael has a 100-year-old great-great aunt who keeps an old wooden box full of 100 pennies, one for each year she's been alive. Attached to each penny is a memory of what happened in Michael's aunt's life the year each coin was minted. Born in 1874, her first coin represents the Reconstruction. The 1930 penny represents the death of her husband. Michael enjoys to hear the stories attached to each penny, but soon finds that his great-great aunt is as old and feeble as the box that carries them.

    ‘A long-awaited book that answers many questions.’ 
    Jan de Vries 
     
    Antibiotics were developed in the 1940s. Then, they were hailed as a huge breakthrough in the treatment of bacterial infections. Today, they are the most commonly prescribed drugs worldwide. But massive over-prescription of antibiotics has created its own problems. The advent of antibiotic-resistant organisms – or ‘superbugs’ – has led more and more people to demand alternatives. 
     
    Natural Alternatives to Antibiotics is a revised and updated version of Dr John McKenna’s international bestseller Alternatives to Antibiotics. First published in 1996 and translated into 16 languages, Alternatives to Antibiotics explains in simple, jargon-free language the variety of alternatives to antibiotics in treating infections. Dr McKenna compares conventional medicine and alternative medical approaches, highlighting the benefits and drawbacks of both. 
     
    In Natural Alternatives to Antibiotics, Dr McKenna looks at the various strains of infections which have become resistant since his international bestseller Alternatives to Antibiotics was published. Dr McKenna has expanded his sections on alternative, herbal, homeopathic and nutritional medicines, and shows directly that it is still possible to treat infections without antibiotics while still acknowledging the times that they may be necessary.Natural Alternatives to Antibiotics: Table of ContentsIntroduction

    Please Stop Helping Us - How...

    Why is it that so many efforts by liberals to lift the black underclass not only fail, but often harm the intended beneficiaries?In Please Stop Helping Us, Jason L. Riley examines how well-intentioned welfare programs are in fact holding black Americans back. Minimum-wage laws may lift earnings for people who are already employed, but they price a disproportionate number of blacks out of the labor force. Affirmative action in higher education is intended to address past discrimination, but the result is fewer black college graduates than would otherwise exist. And so it goes with everything from soft-on-crime laws, which make black neighborhoods more dangerous, to policies that limit school choice out of a mistaken belief that charter schools and voucher programs harm the traditional public schools that most low-income students attend.In theory these efforts are intended to help the poor—and poor minorities in particular. In practice they become massive barriers to moving forward.Please Stop Helping Us lays bare these counterproductive results. People of goodwill want to see more black socioeconomic advancement, but in too many instances the current methods and approaches aren’t working. Acknowledging this is an important first step.
