What are you dying from this week?: Help for health anxiety

by Heather Shearer

Anxiety is now the most common mental illness in the world. Health Anxiety is a specific type of anxiety characterized by preoccupation and fear about having or contracting illness, typically life threatening illnesses. It can be extremely debilitating, and cause significant distress to sufferers. Unfortunately, like many mental illnesses, it is subject to stigma, and people with health anxiety will often hide their suffering from others, and not seek help. Health anxiety however can be treated in the same way as other anxiety disorders. The author, Dr Heather Shearer, herself a long term health anxiety sufferer, writes an easy to read book about the origins, maintenance, triggers and techniques to help health anxiety.

The Descent into Chaos

by Roger G. Trow

There are two opposing views concerning the cosmos. The first assumes we are evolving toward a higher state and the second predicts the descent of the world into chaos.

Adherents of the first view derive their optimism for the future of humankind and the world in general, and is based on Darwinian evolutionary principles, which are considered at some length in this book.

The second view also must comply with the universal laws of science. Roger Trow argues that evolution theory is itself a belief system rather than a proven fact. It will then be for the individual to decide what they will believe on the balance of the evidence presented.
