In Cuban Revelations, Marc Frank offers a first-hand account of daily life in Cuba at the turn of the 21st century, the start of a new and dramatic epoch for islanders and the Cuban diaspora. A US-born journalist who has called Havana home for almost a quarter century, Frank observed in person the best days of the revolution, the fall of the Soviet Bloc, the great depression of the 1990s, the stepping aside of Fidel Castro, and the reforms now being devised by his brother. Examining the effects of US policy toward Cuba, Frank analyzes why Cuba has entered an extraordinary, irreversible period of change and considers what the island's future holds. The enormous social engineering project taking place today under Raúl's leadership is fraught with many dangers, and Cuban Revelations follows the new leader's efforts to overcome bureaucratic resistance and the fears of a populace that stand in his way. In addition, Frank offers a colorful chronicle of his travels across the island's many and varied provinces, sharing candid interviews with people from all walks of life. He takes the listener outside the capital to reveal how ordinary Cubans live and what they are thinking and feeling as 50-year-old social and economic taboos are broken. He shares his honest and unbiased observations on extraordinary positive developments in social matters, like healthcare and education, as well as on the inefficiencies in the Cuban economy. 1.

Jess Lawson, a 45-year-old healthcare consultant, wife, and mother of two, has spent most of her adulthood fostering the illusion of having a perfect life. Her impending empty-nest syndrome as her youngest child prepares to start college is troubling enough, but when her doctor husband, Arthur, announces his intention to take a prestigious new job on the other side of the country - and relocate without Jess - her world quickly crumbles. Amid their acrimonious divorce, revelations about Arthur's infidelity come to light; and at work, instead of the revitalized career Jess is hoping for, she uncovers surprising financial corruption that threatens a scandal for her client - and the well-being of the many unsuspecting patients and physicians they serve. Ultimately, this superwoman is forced to acknowledge that her put-together veneer can't hold up under the weight of these new burdens. She also, however, refuses to wallow in victimhood. So what now?A smart, relatable story for every woman who’s gone bold to sort out her next chapter, A Better Next shows how - with a little soul searching and a supportive circle of friends and colleagues - it’s possible to redefine happiness and establish a liberating, new normal at any stage of life. 1.

Mammography Screening

'This book gives plenty of examples of ad hominem attacks, intimidation, slander, threats of litigation, deception, dishonesty, lies and other violations of good scientific practice. For some years I kept a folder labeled Dishonesty in breast cancer screening on top of my filing cabinet, storing articles and letters to the editor that contained statements I knew were dishonest. Eventually I gave up on the idea of writing a paper about this collection, as the number of examples quickly exceeded what could be contained in a single article.' From the Introduction The most effective way to decrease women's risk of becoming a breast cancer patient is to avoid attending screening. Mammography screening is one of the greatest controversies in healthcare, and the extent to which some scientists have sacrificed sound scientific principles in order to arrive at politically acceptable results in their research is extraordinary. In contrast, neutral observers increasingly find that the benefit has been much oversold and that the harms are much greater than previously believed. This groundbreaking book takes an evidence-based, critical look at the scientific disputes and the information provided to women by governments and cancer charities. It also explains why mammography screening is unlikely to be effective today. All health professionals and members of the public will find these revelations disturbingly illuminating. It will radically transform the way healthcare policy makers view mammography screening in the future. 'If Peter Gotzsche did not exist, there would be a need to invent him ...It may still take time for the limitations and harms of screening to be properly acknowledged and for women to be enabled to make adequately informed decisions. When this happens, it will be almost entirely due to the intellectual rigour and determination of Peter Gotzsche.' From the Foreword by Iona Heath, President, RCGP 'If you care about breast cancer, and we all should, you must read this book. Breast cancer is complex and we cannot afford to rely on the popular media, or on information from marketing campaigns from those who are invested in screening. We need to question and to understand. The story that Peter tells matters very much.' From the Foreword by Fran Visco, President, National Breast Cancer Coalition

We are all patients at some time. Is the medical industry giving us the best treatment possible, at the best price? We all know that it isn't. This new book shows what goes on behind the scenes of the current medical care and how it impacts the patient. Dr. Reznik describes actual cases from his clinical practice showing the most common paths that lead to increased patient suffering. This book offers possible solutions for outpatient, inpatient, preventive, and end-of-life care settings.Learn about: The Medical Box and how it affects the care you receive When to avoid risky and uncomfortable tests Hazards of under-treatment, over-treatment, and mistreatment How to make an informed medical decision in your best interests Cancer and how to approach your treatment Planning for quality of life during end-of-life issues Foreword by Colin P. Kopes-Kerr, MD, JD, MPH, Vice-Chairman of the Department of Family Medicine, and Program Director of the Family Medicine Residency Program, at University Hospital and SUNY Stony Brook School of Medicine, Stony Brook, NY. 'The Secrets of Medical Decision Making should be read by everyone, because all of us are sometimes in need of medical care. It is an eye-opener, a call to arms and a guide.' -Robert Rich, Ph.D., author of Cancer: A Personal Challenge 'Dr. Reznik candidly exposes the conflicting interests inherent in contemporary medical practice. This empowering and insightful book is a must read for healthcare professionals and the patients they treat.' -Beth Maureen Gray, R.N., B.S. 'The Secrets of Medical Decision Making awakens the reader rather quickly with startling revelations about the lack of seriousness the health care industry has towards a society of wellness. If this book at least motivates its readers to become more involved in medical decision making when seeking treatment, it will have succeeded as a critically needed public service.' - James W. Clifton, Ph.D., LCSW 'As a Canadian and a health care provider this book frightens me. This book lays out what our country is headed for if we privatize health care in Canada. A must read for everyone working, or accessing, health care in North America and for anyone who has any doubts that we must take drastic action to preserve Universal Health Care in Canada.' - Ian Landry, MA, MSW, RSW

#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER Finalist for the National Business Book Award 'An interesting read.' — Warren Buffet “The definitive volume on the life and career of two-time Railway Age Railroader of the Year Ewing Hunter Harrison III.” Railway Age “Green plays to his strengths in Railroader:.... Green also excels at narrating the deals that shaped Harrison’s career.... Green’s immersion in the world of high finance and familiarity with the view from the C-suite really shines through. And more than three hundred hours of interviews with Harrison, his family, and close associates paint a detailed, intimate portrait of the man himself.” — Freight Waves “Thorough, readable, and expansive biography.... This is ultimately a business book, but reveals much about Harrison the person.” — TownVibe Ridgefield “New and engaging biography.... What Green delivers in Railroader is insight into Hunter the man, and his paradox.... Howard Green has written a Jim-dandy of a book.” — Railway Age “Green’s book offers new insights into the development of Harrison's business model.... It also reveals a CEO that although a demanding workaholic was also passionate about developing talent around him.... Green’s book is a frank account of his career. It doesn’t shy away from hot topics, like Harrison’s poor health when he began at CSX, and it digs deeper into stories that have been ‘Hunterized.’.... It also shares revelations from the deals that never were.” — Jacksonville Business Journal “Well-researched.... Green paints a picture of a colorful and complex self-made man.... Green unearths a few previously untold stories of corporate intrigue.... Green adds rich insider details to Harrison’s public exploits.... Harrison critics and fans alike will find Railroader to be an engaging, insightful look at the man who could be funny and furious, charming and tough, but always interesting.” — Trains “Filled with telling details.... Incisive and well-balanced biography.” — Journal of Commerce “Hunter Harrison was a colorful man with a zest for life and a passion for railroading. He was certainly the greatest modern manager of these massive networks of commerce that undergird industrial society. Railroader is the story of an interesting life and the intricacies of complex managerial challenges, woven into an enjoyable and highly informative book.” — Frederick W. Smith, chairman and CEO, FedEx Corporation “ Railroader presents both a fascinating business story with global resonance and a very personal tale of a life fully lived in a ‘no-holds barred’ fashion to the very end. It is a brilliant profile of an enigmatic, somewhat obsessed, railroad mercenary, who turned his industry on its head, with new benchmarks for future generations of leaders. Lots of juicy learnings throughout.” — Calin Rovinescu, president & CEO, Air Canada “Precision railroading was his vision and unbending will his advantage. In this tightly written account of Hunter Harrison’s fifty years of extraordinary achievement, Howard Green has captured the essence of the man. A valuable history and, as well, a great read.” — Bill Downe, former president & CEO, BMO Financial Group “A great read. Railroader offers a balanced view of Hunter Harrison’s complex personality. Hunter Harrison, like Steve Jobs, is proof that a strong, knowledgeable leader with a vision can make a huge difference.” — Jim Keohane, president & CEO, Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan “A riveting, up-close profile of one of the most successful and controversial CEOs of the modern era. Railroader is a master class in sharp-elbowed management in a fabled industry. Part hard ass, part mentor, part preacher, Hunter Harrison goes from one railroad to

'Marc Frank is the best foreign journalist reporting from Cuba today. We now have a behind-the-scenes look at the changes large and small taking place as the Cuban revolution molts from Fidel to Raul to the next generation.'--Julia Sweig, author of 'Cuba: What Everyone Needs to Know' 'A must-read book to grasp what has been happening in Cuba over the past ten years.'--Wayne Smith, director of the Cuba Project, Center for International Policy 'Frank enriches his fascinating reportage with his unparalleled access to expressive Cubans from all walks of life.'--Richard Feinberg, University of California, San Diego 'With a sharp eye for human detail and a clear understanding of what makes Cuba tick, Frank's narrative bears eloquent, balanced, and always sensitive witness to the troubled trajectory of Cuba from the 'dark days' of the 1990s economic collapse through to the challenging changes under Raul. It genuinely gets 'inside' the otherwise confusing system and society, and is all the more welcome for that.'?Antoni Kapcia, coeditor of 'The Changing Dynamic of Cuban Civil Society' 'Gripping and insightful. It is rare indeed to find reporting as authoritative and well sourced as this about what remains an impenetrable and opaque regime.'--Michael Reid, author of 'Forgotten Continent: The Battle for Latin America's Soul 'As a U.S.-born journalist who has called Havana home for almost a quarter century, Mark Frank has observed in person the best days of the revolution, the fall of the Soviet bloc, the great depression of the 1990s, the stepping aside of Fidel Castro, and the reforms now being devised by his brother.
