A Magnificent Obsession by Helen Rappaport
As she did in her critically acclaimed The Last Days of the Romanovs, Helen Rappaport brings a compelling documentary feel to the story of this royal marriage and of the queen's obsessive love for her husband – a story that began as fairy tale and ended in tragedy. After the untimely death of Prince Albert, the queen and her nation were plunged into a state of grief so profound that this one event would dramatically alter the shape of the British monarchy. For Britain had not just lost a prince: during his twenty year marriage to Queen Victoria, Prince Albert had increasingly performed the function of King in all but name. The outpouring of grief after Albert's death was so extreme, that its like would not be seen again until the death of Princess Diana 136 years later. Drawing on many letters, diaries and memoirs from the Royal Archives and other neglected sources, as well as the newspapers of the day, Rappaport offers a new perspective on this compelling historical psychodrama--the crucial final months of the prince's life and the first long, dark ten years of the Queen's retreat from public view. She draws a portrait of a queen obsessed with her living husband and – after his death – with his enduring place in history. Magnificent Obsession will also throw new light on the true nature of the prince's chronic physical condition, overturning for good the 150-year old myth that he died of typhoid fever.

A Death On Diamond Mountain by Scott Carney
An investigative reporter explores an infamous case where an obsessive and unorthodox search for enlightenment went terribly wrong. When thirty-eight-year-old Ian Thorson died from dehydration and dysentery on a remote Arizona mountaintop in 2012, The New York Times reported the story under the headline: "Mysterious Buddhist Retreat in the Desert Ends in a Grisly Death." Scott Carney, a journalist and anthropologist who lived in India for six years, was struck by how Thorson’s death echoed other incidents that reflected the little-talked-about connection between intensive meditation and mental instability. Using these tragedies as a springboard, Carney explores how those who go to extremes to achieve divine revelations—and undertake it in illusory ways—can tangle with madness. He also delves into the unorthodox interpretation of Tibetan Buddhism that attracted Thorson and the bizarre teachings of its chief evangelists: Thorson’s wife, Lama Christie McNally, and her previous husband, Geshe Michael Roach, the supreme spiritual leader of Diamond Mountain University, where Thorson died. Carney unravels how the cultlike practices of McNally and Roach and the questionable circumstances surrounding Thorson’s death illuminate a uniquely American tendency to mix and match eastern religious traditions like LEGO pieces in a quest to reach an enlightened, perfected state, no matter the cost. Aided by Thorson’s private papers, along with cutting-edge neurological research that reveals the profound impact of intensive meditation on the brain and stories of miracles and black magic, sexualized rituals, and tantric rites from former Diamond Mountain acolytes, A Death on Diamond Mountain is a gripping work of investigative journalism that reveals how the path to enlightenment can be riddled with danger.
Sex And Death In Protozoa by Graham Bell
Is ageing inevitable, or can senescence and death be evaded? Large animals and plants always age if they live long enough; even individual cells from their bodies cannot continue living and dividing indefinitely. Whether or not single-celled organisms also age and die, and what relation sex bore to the process of senescence, was the subject of vigorous debate and experimentation early in the last century. In this book, Dr Bell disinters and reanalyzes these forgotten experiments, and argues that protozoan lineages do indeed senesce, as the result of an accumulated load of mutations that can be shed only through sexual reproduction. This unexpected connection between sex and death is the central theme of a book that will interest all students of evolutionary biology, sexuality and senescence.
The Death Of Obsession by Ray Fashona
Mike Zinarelli's life has not turned out the way his college self thought it would. Having once basked in the hazy comfort of pot smoke, cocaine, booze, and sex, sex, sex, Z's adult life leaves him disillusioned. Once dreaming of making a difference in the world through cutting-edge journalism, Z now watches the decline of the print newspaper and feels the irrelevance of his unused potential. Remembering the virile youthfulness of days past, Z muses on his lifeless, complacent marriage and realizes his age through the one-sidedness of ogling his twenty-something neighbor from a window. In an attempt to revive the spark of life he felt during his college days-debating literature and philosophy, riding the highs of drugs and jazz, having wild sex-Z secretly drinks Jack Daniel's all day, reaches out to an old college friend, and even sees the woman who once brought him to the brink of a violent, nearly murderous rage: his nymphomaniac college girlfriend, Crystal Cassidy. His clandestine meeting with Crystal, however, puts him at the top of the list of suspects for her mysterious disappearance and assumed death. A quarter of a century after their rollercoaster romance-and the best sex of his life-Crystal Cassidy still has her hooks in Z. Caught between trying to maintain his innocence and living vicariously through his past, Z struggles to survive in the present ... and a surprise visit from Crystal's adult son only complicates his effort. At the risk of losing everything he's worked for-regardless of how far short it fell from what his college self imagined-Z must fight for his family and break free of his obsession once and for all.
