"Hey, Doc--Got a Minute?" No matter where Dr. Richard Besser goes, a day doesn't go by without someone stopping him to ask that question. Often, that person is one of the millions who have come to rely on the vital information he shares on Good Morning America, World News with Diane Sawyer, and Nightline. Now, in response to thousands of inquiries from viewers, Dr. Besser has written his first book--a comprehensive health guide that will both inform and surprise as he deciphers fact from fiction for nearly seventy confusing medical questions, including: - "Should I take a daily aspirin to prevent a heart attack, stroke, or cancer?" - "If my doctors order a lot of tests, does that mean they're more thorough?" - "Do I need thirty minutes of exercise a day to stay healthy?" Recognizing the astonishing amount of misinformation that many important health decisions are based upon, Dr. Besser's commitment to delivering the truth is critical. He isn't afraid to challenge the status quo--or the interests within the health care industry--to provide the knowledge you need to take control of your health. Eager to help you make the choices that are right for YOU, he organizes his easy-to-understand answers into six lifestyle categories, including diet and nutrition; exercise and fitness; vitamins, supplements, and medicines; beating illness and injury; and navigating the perplexing world of health care, as well as a chapter dedicated to the questions you wished you asked before your doctor walks out the door. Throughout the book, Dr. Besser smashes myths while translating invaluable information into problem-solving advice you can use, including a "Dr. B's Bottom Line" at the end of each topic. As accessible as it is empowering, Dr. Besser's Tell Me the Truth, Doctor is a necessary addition to every home, office, and dorm room. "Besser . . . ably analyzes popular myths (the "Freshman Fifteen"), considers pros and cons (HRT and statins), and mostly takes unequivocal stands on the issues. . . . Quite often, his comments and suggestions surprise. . . . Particularly helpful are his guidelines for avoiding the harmful effects of health care and hospitalization." --Publishers Weekly Richard Besser, MD, ABC News' Chief Health and Medical Editor, provides medical analysis and commentary for all ABC News broadcasts and platforms, including World News with Diane Sawyer, Good Morning America, and Nightline, as well as many other news/entertainment programs.

Losing weight while you sleep may sound too good to be true, but in fact the connection between inadequate sleep and weight gain (among a host of other negative medical results) has long been recognized by medical researchers. Turning this equation on its head, clinical psychologist and board-certified sleep expert Dr. Michael Breus shows that a good night's sleep will actually enable you to lose weight, especially if you have been chronically sleep deprived. The Sleep Doctor's Diet Plan is designed to help any person who has been frustrated by her inability to shed weight by giving her the tools to overcome the stress, poor habits, and environmental challenges that stand between her and adequate rest. Sleep deprivation is a frustrating reality for many women faced with chronic stress or hormonal changes--and the fatigue, moodiness, and weight gain that come with it might just be the tip of the iceberg. While helping thousands of women implement simple health and lifestyle changes to improve the quality and the quantity of their slumber, Dr. Breus has witnessed not only an upsurge in their energy levels and a diminishing of myriad health concerns, but also significant weight loss achieved without restrictive dieting or increased amounts of exercise. In The Sleep Doctor's Diet Plan, Dr. Breus delves into the science behind this sleep–weight-loss connection, explaining exactly how sleep boosts your metabolism, ignites fat burn, and decreases cravings and overall appetite, and he presents a realistic action plan to help you get your best sleep--and your best body--possible. He shows how you can overcome your personal sleep obstacles with a slumber-friendly evening routine, stress management techniques--even recipes for healthy meals and snacks--to help you fall asleep more easily. If you are ready to stop tossing and turning night after night, if you are done downing coffee to conquer nagging fatigue, and if you have bounced from one diet to another in an effort to find one that really, finally helps you lose the pounds you want, The Sleep Doctor's Diet Plan has the information, advice, and practical strategies you need to get deep, revitalizing sleep--and achieve a slimmer, healthier body in the process.

Audrey Shafer observes the world with a quiet intensity, with a reverence for the everydayness of her children’s toys, the earth outside her window, and the sacred trust of her sleeping patients. Her poems reflect the seamless back and forth of her woman’s life, at one moment breathing for her patients, in the next choosing socks for her daughter to wear. “Barking orders / I stick the tube in / silently curse, pray, sell my soul for the beat of a hidden heart,” this doctor/mother reminds us all of the fluidity of identity. Stunning, truly. –Delese Wear, Ph.D., Editor, Journal of Medical Humanities Audrey Shafer’s poems demonstrate a unique blend of tenderness and steadiness that makes hers a recognizable and welcome voice among contemporary physician-poets. Her images are powerful and compelling. Consider, for example, “gardenias thick as lust” and the “gauze-choked winter sun.” Her line is graceful, yet disciplined; her language imaginative, even transcendent, yet always grounded in “flesh, arm, artery, earlobe” and always aware of “the scrape of the key in the lock.” Sleep Talker reveals that the most ordinary moment in life can also be “the glory and the answer.” –Jack Coulehan, M.D., Editor, Blood and Bone: Poems by Physicians Audrey Shafer has, in abundant measure, all the requirements for the making of fine poems–a well-tuned eye, ear, and heart. A palpable sense of discovery is everywhere in her poetry, unique, contemplative, joyful, and wise. –John Stone, M.D., poet and essayist, Where Water Begins: New Poems and Prose In her first book of poems, anesthesiologist Audrey Shafer, M.D., boldly weaves her professional and personal worlds. These poems, some previously published in journals and anthologies, provide a glimpse of the daily life, including the worries, foibles and glories, of a working mother. The book, although divided into three sections, contains many poems that interconnect the three themes (home, work, and journeys) as a reflection of the impossibility of disconnecting facets of a lived life. The first section, “that I call home”, invokes the poet’s childhood in Philadelphia, the death of her father, love and succor from family and friends, and the fierce and tender joys of motherhood. The love poem, “Home”, written for her husband, is characteristic Shafer: the influence of medical and anatomical knowledge on her experience of the fragilities of love and life. Many poems, however, are far from solemn: “Socks” intertwines humor and maternal love and “Riff” is a self-deprecating romp into drumming taken up in midlife. The second section, “not quite sleep”, delves into the world of the doctor, and in particular, the anesthesiologist. This section may be of greatest interest to those in the fields of medical humanities and pedagogy. In poems such as “Center Stage” and “Anesthesia”, the poet reflects on the nature of anesthesia and the profound gift of trust that her patients offer her. The widely anthologized poem, “Monday Morning”, describes the intimate early morning hours of a doctor / mother.
