Some people are able to carry on with a normal life as long as they pace themselves, others are housebound or even bedridden. This book is about my story, how I developed M.E. and how I have tried to search for an answer and treatment for the symptoms I experience.

Andrew Johnston, an Australian wine writer, goes to Dubrovnik to prepare an article for his editor on the wines and wineries of southern Rhne. He never realized how this trip will impact his life until an old acquaintance crosses his path bringing new surprises and challenges. In author Angus Kennedys Two Tickets To Dubrovnik, readers will follow Andrew as he composes his editorial piecewhile facing the conflicting challenges between his heart and his head. They will be compelled to take deep breaths, discover insights, and witness a beautiful story of life, a little romance, and the clash of two very different cultures. The historic walled city of Dubrovnik, the heart of the ancient Republic of Ragusa and now part of Croatia, provides the setting for Australian wine writer, Andrew Johnston, who travels there to prepare an article on the wines and wineries of the southern Rhne region of France. During his stay in Dubrovnik, he meets up with an old Bordelaise wine making acquaintance, Lucien Delasalles, and is introduced to his family connections in the city, including his sister, Niki. Andrew is attracted to Niki but is warned by his landlady about Nikis brother, Jakov, and his unsavoury friends, and against becoming too close to Nikis family. Interested and intrigued by Niki and her family, Andrew devotes more of his time to them and endeavours to discover more about the facts underlying the veiled warning that he has received. In spite of inviting the attentions of the local police, Andrew perseveres with his enquires but control of his life is taken out of his hands as he sees his ordered existence and his developing interest in Niki being blown away by the unfolding events surrounding her family. The time-enduring environment of the ancient town provides a sharp contrast to the rapidly moving events in this modern Balkan world and the outcome reflects the complex relationships that have always existed among people, no matter how apparently stable their environment. In its unexpected conclusion, readers will find themselves with Andrew back in Australia, reminiscing on his short stay in Dubrovnik and the many things that happened. Two Tickets To Dubrovnik will leave them with questions and a desire for more stories of the same kind.

Have you ever seen something that wasn't really there? Heard someone call your name in an empty house? Sensed someone following you and turned around to find nothing? Hallucinations don't belong wholly to the insane. Much more commonly, they are linked to sensory deprivation, intoxication, illness, or injury. In some conditions, hallucinations can lead to religious epiphanies or even the feeling of leaving one's own body. Humans have always sought such life-changing visions, and for thousands of years have used hallucinogenic compounds to achieve them. In Hallucinations, with his usual elegance, curiosity, and compassion, Dr Oliver Sacks weaves together stories of his patients and of his own mind-altering experiences to illuminate what hallucinations tell us about the organization and structure of our brains, how they have influenced every culture's folklore and art, and why the potential for hallucination is present in us all, a vital part of the human condition.

An award-winning scientist offers his unorthodox approach to childrearing: “Parentology is brilliant, jaw-droppingly funny, and full of wisdom…bound to change your thinking about parenting and its conventions” (Amy Chua, author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother). If you’re like many parents, you might ask family and friends for advice when faced with important choices about how to raise your kids. You might turn to parenting books or simply rely on timeworn religious or cultural traditions. But when Dalton Conley, a dual-doctorate scientist and full-blown nerd, needed childrearing advice, he turned to scientific research to make the big decisions. In Parentology, Conley hilariously reports the results of those experiments, from bribing his kids to do math (since studies show conditional cash transfers improved educational and health outcomes for kids) to teaching them impulse control by giving them weird names (because evidence shows kids with unique names learn not to react when their peers tease them) to getting a vasectomy (because fewer kids in a family mean smarter kids). Conley encourages parents to draw on the latest data to rear children, if only because that level of engagement with kids will produce solid and happy ones. Ultimately these experiments are very loving, and the outcomes are redemptive—even when Conley’s sassy kids show him the limits of his profession. Parentology teaches you everything you need to know about the latest literature on parenting—with lessons that go down easy. You’ll be laughing and learning at the same time.
