XO: From Turner Syndrome and Me

by Sarah Allen

Turner Syndrome is a genetic anomaly which leaves the baby girl with only one X chromosome. An XO karyotype. Turner Syndrome means shortness and infertility, possible heart and kidney defects. Turner Syndrome means daily shots of growth hormone and eventually estrogen pills.

But those are only facts, and as any breathing, pulsing person can tell you:

Living with Schizophrenia

by Neel Burton

This prize-winning book provides schizophrenia sufferers and their carers with a source of information about the illness that is accessible, reliable, and comprehensive. By teaching you about the condition, ‘Living with Schizophrenia’ aims to alleviate any feelings of fear and isolation that you may have, and provide you with a realistic sense of hope and optimism. Simple and practical advice about day-to-day management enables you to take greater control over the illness, make the most of the services that are available to you, and ultimately improve your chances of once again leading a healthy, productive, and fulfilling life.

Schizophrenia is isolating and frightening for the people who have it and also for their families. This is a very gentle, straightforward book tackling a really difficult subject crying out for unbiased, compassionate but honest information. We particularly liked the advice on the psycho-social and legal aspects of mental health, which are often ignored. â??Judges, MJA Open Book Awards

Though information on schizophrenia is freely available in the public domain, much of it is hard to find, unreliable, inconsistent, and, because of the uncontrolled nature of the internet, unnecessarily disheartening. Much of what is easily accessible is aimed at scientists and healthcare professionals rather than at schizophrenia sufferers and their carers, for whose benefit this book has been specially prepared. By leading them to a better understanding of the illness and its treatments, from medication to psychological and other therapies, and by guiding them through their day-to-day battles, it should serve as a giant first step on their journey to recovery. â??Marjorie Wallace, Chief Executive, SANE

To sum up, a lot of information is contained in this concise book, which makes it a valuable reference, particularly for people confronted with a shocking diagnosis of schizophrenia for the first time. â??The British Journal of Psychiatry

Dr Neel Burton is a psychiatrist who practices and teaches in Oxford, England. He regularly blogs for Psychology Today in the USA, and is the recipient of the Society of Authors’ Richard Asher Prize, the British Medical Association’s Young Authors Award, and the Medical Journalists’ Association Open Book Award. His other books include ‘The Meaning of Madness’ and ‘Growing from Depression’, both also with Acheron Press.

ADAM TO APOPHIS Asteroids, Millenarianism and Climate Change

by Nicholas Costa

For millennia societies across the world have held the belief that at some point in the future there will be a major â??end time’ phase, culminating in world-wide catastrophes caused by the fragmentation of a comet or near earth
asteroid. According to Islamic reckoning late in 1979 we entered this phase, and the world as we know it will end at some point during this current century. There have been numerous â??end time’ claims in the past that have been repeatedly discredited, however since 1986 following the latest apparition of Halley’s Comet the earth has indeed been subjected to an increasingly long list not only of terrorist acts and revolutions across the Islamic world but also of â??record’ traumas in the form of hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis.
Early in 2013 the world witnessed the power of a very small asteroid exploding over populated areas of Russia. Is there any substance to the
long held claims of Islam and other religions?
This is the first ever book to analyse ancient chronologies and testimonies in relation to modern scientific research concerning major
climatic cycles in the Earth’s recent past. The results are not only eye-opening but disturbing.
Nicholas Costa is a freelance writer and lecturer.
