AmnesiaAmnesia by Michael Ridpath

Atmospheric, sinuous and elegant, Amnesia demonstrates Ridpath’s special talent. – Daily Mail

He woke up to discover he had killed the only woman he ever loved. She discovered it was her grandmother.

Alastair is a doctor in his eighties, living in a cottage by a loch in Scotland. He wakes up in hospital having fallen and hit his head, inducing almost total amnesia. A young family friend, Clemence, is brought in to help rekindle his memory. In his cottage Clemence finds a manuscript. The first line shocks her:

It was a warm, still night and the cry of a tawny owl swirled through the birch trees by the loch, when I killed the only woman I have ever loved.

She reads the short prologue: it describes a murder by someone who is clearly the old doctor. The victim is Clemence’s French grandmother, Sophie.

Clemence decides to read the book to the old doctor as it describes how he and his friends met Sophie in Paris in 1935. As they read on, there are people closing in on the cottage by the loch who are willing to kill to make sure that the old man’s secrets stay forgotten.

Enchantment: The Art of Changing Hearts, Minds, and Actions Over 200 5-Star Reviews!

Enchantment, as defined by bestselling business guru Guy Kawasaki, is not about manipulating people. It transforms situations and relationships. It converts hostility into civility and civility into affinity. It changes the skeptics and cynics into the believers and the undecided into the loyal. Enchantment can happen during a retail transaction, a high-level corporate negotiation, or a Facebook update. And when done right, it’s more powerful than traditional persuasion, influence, or marketing techniques.

For instance, enchantment is what enabled…

  • A Peace Corps volunteer to finesse a potentially violent confrontation with armed guerrillas.
  • A small cable channel (E!) to win the TV broadcast rights to radio superstar Howard Stern.
  • A seemingly crazy new running shoe (Vibram Five Fingers) to methodically build a passionate customer base.

This book explains all the tactics you need to prepare and launch an enchantment campaign; to get the most from both push and pull technologies; and to enchant your customers, your employees, and even your boss. It shows how enchantment can turn difficult decisions your way, at times when intangibles mean more than hard facts. It will help you overcome other people’s entrenched habits and defy the not-always-wise "wisdom of the crowd."

The Drug HuntersThe Drug Hunters
by Donald R. Kirsch PhD, Ogi Ogas PhD

⭐⭐⭐ TODAY ONLY ⭐⭐⭐

The search to find medicines is as old as disease, which is to say as old as the human race.

Through serendipity – by chewing, brewing, and snorting – some Neolithic souls discovered opium, alcohol, snakeroot, juniper, frankincense, and other helpful substances. Ötzi the Iceman, the 5,000-year-old hunter frozen in the Italian Alps, was found to have whipworms in his intestines and Bronze Age medicine, a worm-killing birch fungus, knotted to his leggings.

Nowadays Big Pharma conglomerates spend billions of dollars on state-of-the art laboratories staffed by PhDs to discover blockbuster drugs. Yet despite our best efforts to engineer cures, luck, trial and error, risk, and ingenuity are still fundamental to medical discovery.

The Drug Hunters is a colorful, fact-filled narrative history of the search for new medicines from our Neolithic forebears to the professionals of today and from quinine and aspirin to Viagra, Prozac, and Lipitor.
