Summary

In this book Tony Robertson exposes the myth that is the efficacy of alternative medicine. Why does the NHS include homeopathy in its prescribable drugs? Why are people allowed to go to malarial countries with the only protection advised by homeopaths being salt tablets? People die, people are not cured, no verifiable efficacy of alternative medicine is produced, and yet homeopathic ‘cures' across the range of ailments and promoted by notable figures such as Prince Charles, continue to be sold.
In Quackery, The 20 Million Dollar Duck, Tony Robertson examines the claims of alternative therapies such as acupuncture: can it really stop smoking addiction, enable surgery to be carried out without anaesthetic, cure hearing loss ...? Unsurprisingly data for ‘miracle' cures and therapies is thin on the ground. For a full exposé of the dangers of ‘quackery' this book is a must.

    CONSCIOUS FITNESS is a timely and important book that invites its readers to gain a new perspective on health and wellness.  It involves looking at nutrition, exercise and overall fitness from our most basic level, pure energy, otherwise known as Zero Point Energy.  It is a modern journey into critical thought, intended to rid the reader of limiting beliefs they may have about their health, weight, level of fitness and their capacity to change.
    
    This book begins with an exploration of human health and wellness from an energy perspective.  At the most subatomic level, ultimately, we are nothing but pure energy and the health of that energy affects our outward mental and physical well-being.  This energy can be found (or hidden) by the conscious mind, and its canvas is our very bodies and our minds. Through the use of new scientific research, quantum science, philosophy, exercise physiology, spirituality, nutrition, and motivational science, the reader is introduced to a new belief system.  This system challenges the reader to consider new possibilities regarding their health and wellness.

    Disaster on the Horizon is a behind-the-scenes investigative look at the worst oil well accident in US history, which led to the current environmental and economic catastrophe on the Gulf Coast. Cavnar uses his 30 years in the business to take readers inside the disaster, exposing the decisions leading up to the blowout and the immediate aftermath. It includes personal accounts of the survivors, assembled from testimony during various investigations, as well as personal interviews with survivors, witnesses, and family. It also provides a layman's look at the industry, its technology, people, and risks. It deconstructs events and decisions made by BP, Transocean, and the US Government before and after the disaster, and the effects of those decisions, both good and bad.
    
     
    Cavnar explains what happened in the Gulf, explores how we arrived at deep water drilling in the first place and then charts a course for how to avoid these disasters in the future.

    Los temas discutidos en este libro, traducido al inglés por el australiano Kieran Tapsell, forman parte de una disciplina revolucionaria conocida como psicología evolutiva, que se ha convertido en la herramienta más poderosa descubierta por el ser humano para entenderse a sí mismo. Gran parte del conocimiento revelado por la ciencia humana se explica como resultado del proceso evolutivo, tomando como premisa la teoría de que la mayoría de los deseos, impulsos, intereses y facultades mentales humanas fueron diseñadas por la evolución de las especies. Este nuevo enfoque nos permite sintetizar un grupo ya establecido de descubrimientos, que provienen de diversas disciplinas como genética, evolución, antropología, psicología, neurología y epistemología. De esta manera es posible explicar una parte importante del comportamiento humano desde un solo principio unificado: la búsqueda directa o indirecta de una mayor eficacia reproductiva. Con este trabajo, de fácil lectura para el público general, el autor completa un ciclo de temas que comenzó con el libro Del Big Bang al homo sapiens (2004), publicado en español por Villegas Editores.

    This book reveals the shocking truth about a German oncologist who discovered the cure for cancer over 25 years ago, along with the biological laws that govern the way cancer and other diseases work.  This simple cure, although scientifically proven to be 100% effective,  has been rejected by established medicine because it does not "fit in" with modern business-oriented medical practice. In fact, it turns the medical world upside down!  Learn about the coming medical revolution that will forever change the way you think about so-called "incurable" diseases.
