BOOK EXCERPT:

"Tell the doctor where it hurts." It sounds simple enough, unless the problem affects the very organ that produces awareness and generates speech. What is it like to try to heal the body when the mind is under attack? In this book, Dr. Allan Ropper and Brian Burrell take the reader behind the scenes at Harvard Medical School's neurology unit to show how a seasoned diagnostician faces down bizarre, life-altering afflictions. Like Alice in Wonderland, Dr. Ropper inhabits a world where absurdities abound: • A figure skater whose body has become a ticking time-bomb • A salesman who drives around and around a traffic rotary, unable to get off • A college quarterback who can't stop calling the same play • A child molester who, after falling on the ice, is left with a brain that is very much dead inside a body that is very much alive • A mother of two young girls, diagnosed with ALS, who has to decide whether a life locked inside her own head is worth living How does one begin to treat such cases, to counsel people whose lives may be changed forever? How does one train the next generation of clinicians to deal with the moral and medical aspects of brain disease? Dr. Ropper and his colleague answer these questions by taking the reader into a rarified world where lives and minds hang in the balance.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The shocking, never-before-told story of the bizarre world inside the legendary Playboy Mansion—and, finally, the secret truth about the man who holds the key—from one of the few people who truly knows: Hef’s former #1 girlfriend and star of The Girls Next Door A spontaneous decision at age twenty-one transformed small-town Oregon girl Holly Sue Cullen into Holly Madison, Hugh Hefner’s #1 girlfriend. But like Alice’s journey into Wonderland, after Holly plunged down the rabbit hole, what seemed like a fairytale life inside the Playboy Mansion—including A-list celebrity parties and her own #1-rated television show for four years—quickly devolved into an oppressive routine of strict rules, manipulation, and battles with ambitious, backstabbing bunnies. Life inside the notorious Mansion wasn’t a dream at all—and quickly became her nightmare. After losing her identity, her sense of self-worth, and her hope for the future, Holly found herself sitting alone in a bathtub contemplating suicide. But instead of ending her life, Holly chose to take charge of it. In this shockingly candid and surprisingly moving memoir, this thoughtful and introspective woman opens up about life inside the Mansion, the drugs, the sex, the abuse, the infamous parties, and her real behind-the-scenes life with Bridget, Kendra, and, of course, Mr. Playboy himself. With great courage, Holly shares the details of her subsequent troubled relationship, landing her own successful television series, and the hard work of healing, including her turn on Dancing with the Stars. A cautionary tale and a celebration of personal empowerment, Down the Rabbit Hole reminds us of the importance of fighting for our dreams—and finding the life we deserve.

BOOK EXCERPT:

It should come as no surprise that following the Clinton-era crime bills and the massive increase in prison construction throughout the nation over the past twenty years that, overall, crime would be down. But this has come with exorbitant costs, both in terms of dollars and human lives. The United States has an unprecedented two million offenders behind bars at an annual cost of $70 billion. And this has paradoxically led to a widespread case of buyer's remorse. Seeing such a mass incarceration as unsustainable, a growing number of people in recent years have been calling for criminal justice reform. Consequently, lawmakers have not only begun to enact schemes designed to reduce prison sentenced for many off those currently incarcerated, there had been a more liberal use of paroles as well. The question of how well the prison experience has worked to correct offenders is therefore perhaps more important now than ever. Are we as a society to watch the correction's pendulum swing back, only to witness a precipitous rise in crime once again?Historically, incarceration has had an extremely poor record of reforming criminals. The sad fact is that reoffending is a likelier outcome following a prison sentence than is rehabilitation. And although the reasons for this are complex, much of the problem certainly lies with the correction's culture itself. Deconstructing that culture, Down The Rabbit Hole offers a unique perspective on why corrections more often than not fails to achieve its stated goals.

BOOK EXCERPT:

It's the 1970s-- Vietnam is recent history, Farah Fawcett's a pin-up girl, O.J. Simpson's still playing football and hippie Kevin Patrick is a recent college graduate who takes a position teaching inmates at Attica Correctional Facility. It's a long drive from Buffalo and a short leap into the unknown as Patrick learns just how tough it is on the "inside" of a prison about to explode. Some of the inmates are terrifying. Other prisoners are inspiring like Richie and Reggie --who's determined to go straight and do right by his girlfriend Jameka. The author depicts Attica's inmates and the facility's staff with considerable skill during an era of turmoil and change. The author touches upon the nefarious C-block problems, shady activities and also includes a bloodcurdling account regarding the murder of a cafeteria worker and one inmate's ill-fated decision to try to escape Attica. "Life is all about fear. Some people live in fear and others use it to their advantage," notes one character as a disobedient inmate is enroute to "the box," a terrifying punishment tool in use at that time. This novel provides a terse reminder of the importance of prison reform. [from Publishers Weekly].

BOOK EXCERPT:

The #1 New York Times bestselling author returns with this candid, humorous, and captivating memoir chronicling her journey toward reinvention and self-acceptance. When you've come out the other side of the bizarre, twisted world of the Playboy mansion, where do you land? If you're Holly Madison . . . there's no place like Las Vegas! After making the sudden decision to reclaim her life, Holly broke free from the sheltered, deceptive confines of the mansion (which meant exiting a hit television show) and was determined to start her life over . . . from scratch. Without the security of a job or relationship, she set out to reinvent herself on no one's terms but her own. Deciding to roll the dice and begin again in the glamorous and dreamlike city of Las Vegas, Holly quickly realized that while she may have left her past in the rearview mirror, the labels and stereotypes that came from it weren't so quick to leave her. With a fierce commitment to take charge of her own narrative, Holly dives headfirst into a journey of self-discovery. After a whirlwind stint on Dancing with the Stars, she snags the coveted lead role in the Strip's hottest new burlesque spectacular and lands a reality series spotlighting her new life as a single woman. If her own television show and dream job as a showgirl weren't enough to keep her busy, Holly explores the decadent, exclusive inner-world of Sin City, navigating it's social and dating scene with humor and heart. When it comes to romance, she is met with an eclectic cast of characters, from fame hounds to long distance loves to the occasional celebrity and more than one tabloid mishap. In this reflective, heartwarming memoir, Holly learns that each dating disaster holds an important, and in some cases difficult to face, lesson about herself. The Vegas Diaries is a comedy of errors, set against the glitz and glamour of the dazzling Vegas strip. Through the wild and crazy experiences on one young woman's quest to "have it all," Holly faces her fears, anxieties, and insecurities to discover that her journey to self-sufficiency is also her path to healing. Letting go of trying to prove herself to others, Holly finally gains the courage to confront her past-and in the process finds the life and love she deserves.
