Summary

A brilliant young scientist introduces us to the fascinating field that is changing our understanding of how the body works and the way we can approach healing. 
 
SYSTEMATIC is the first book to introduce general readers to systems biology, which is improving medical treatments and our understanding of living things. In traditional bottom-up biology, a biologist might spend years studying how a single protein works, but systems biology studies how networks of those proteins work together--how they promote health and how to remedy the situation when the system isn't functioning properly. 
  
 Breakthroughs in systems biology became possible only when powerful computer technology enabled researchers to process massive amounts of data to study complete systems, and has led to progress in the study of gene regulation and inheritance, cancer drugs personalized to an individual's genetically unique tumor, insights into how the brain works, and the discovery that the bacteria and other microbes that live in the gut may drive malnutrition and obesity. Systems biology is allowing us to understand more complex phenomena than ever before. 
  
 In accessible prose, SYSTEMATIC sheds light not only on how systems within the body work, but also on how research is yielding new kinds of remedies that enhance and harness the body's own defenses.

    The Highly Sensitive Person: How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You by Elaine N. Aron: Conversation Starters
    
     
    Since its original publication in 1996, Dr. Elaine Aron’s book The Highly Sensitive Person: How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You have been translated into 18 languages and has helped millions of people around the world. Author Elaine Aron introduced the world to a very distinct personality trait. She claimed that it affects one out of five people in the world. She called this HSP or the Highly Sensitive Person. She described this person as highly sensitive because of his sensitive nervous system. This person is aware of his surroundings and these affect the person at an intensified level. This person’s key quality is his ability to ponder, explore and associate everything that surrounds him. According to Aron, this “sensitivity is anything but a flaw”. In The Highly Sensitive Person, she shifts the perspective on the stereotypes placed on HSPs and helps HSPs themselves to view their personality as an asset, not a liability. 
    
     
    
    
     
    Counseling and Human Development says that Aron’s book is the first to talk about this personality and help those who have it to “make the most of it.” The New Times says that The Highly Sensitive Person is “a valuable resource.”
