DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Poor. Skinny. Immigrant. Dirty Jew. Weird. Weakling. Useless.Believing they were right about him and always afraid to walk home from school, Paul couldn't get through a day without some form of bullying. Until the day Paul couldn't take it anymore. They were always a group of 5 or more but this time he saw one of the boys walking alone, sans entourage, and he unleashed years of pent-up rage. "He had to have seen the fury in my eyes because he tried to dash away but not before I could chase him all the way to Rachel street. It was there that I unleashed the anguish of never having fought back. Brian took the hit for seven years of my constant struggle against bullying."Reminiscent of Mordechai Richler's "Duddy Kravitz", School of Hard Luck is a coming-into-wisdom story that takes place in the same era and the same Montreal neighbourhood. Paul Steinberg does whatever it takes to make something of himself. In one of life's ironies, he finds himself once again a victim of bullying, this time at the hands of a boss who humiliates him on the job.Paul Steinberg, award winning car salesmen, all-around athlete, family first kind of man, author, shameless 75-year-old.I've been told by people many times and over many years that I don't matter. Well, I have a message to spread that is very important. And one that matters to everyone who has ever been made to feel less than. That makes them wrong, doesn't it?

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The story of boxing legend Jerry Quarry has it all: rags to riches, thrilling fights against the giants of the Golden Age of Heavyweights (Ali—twice, Frazier—twice, Patterson, Norton), a racially and politically electric sports era, the thrills and excesses of fame, celebrities, love, hate, joy, and pain. And tragedy. Like the man he fought during two highly controversial fight cards in 1970 and '72—Muhammad Ali—boxing great Jerry Quarry was to suffer gravely. He died at age fifty-three, mind and body ravaged by Dementia Pugilistica. In Hard Luck, “Irish” Jerry Quarry comes to life—from his Grapes of Wrath days as the child of an abusive father in the California migrant camps to those as the undersized heavyweight slaying giants on his way to multiple title bouts and the honor of being the World's Most Popular Fighter in '68, '69, '70, and '71. The story of Jerry Quarry is one of the richest in the annals of boxing, and through painstaking research and exclusive access to the Quarry family and its archives, Steve Springer and Blake Chavez have captured it all.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Time did not forget this tiny fishing village, this small dot in the Caribbean Sea. Cayman has grown up and graduated to become a financial capital where the wicked, greedy, righteous, and brave coexist. Paradise for some can be hell for others when corruption reigns in high places. What you know could very well get you killed. Ezekiel Howett is no saint, but neither is he the worst on the water. Just a native boy from the islands, he’s a Rastafarian at heart and a marijuana activist. Sadly, an honest living is hard to come by. Unemployed, Ezekiel does what he can to survive. With the help of an old sea captain, he hunts for buried treasure on land and at sea. He is sorely unprepared when past mistakes come back to haunt him. His life and future are now in jeopardy. The law is watching, and his enemies will stop at nothing to lock him behind bars. Marginalized as a native minority, Ezekiel has nowhere to turn. He must become the quiet hero with no choice but to fight back.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

From a helicopter high above the empty California desert, a man is sent free-falling into the night…. In Chicago, a woman learns that an elite team of ex–army investigators is being hunted down one by one.... And on the streets of Portland, Jack Reacher—soldier, cop, hero—is pulled out of his wandering life by a code that few other people could understand. From the first shocking scenes in Lee Child’s explosive new novel, Jack Reacher is plunged like a knife into the heart of a conspiracy that is killing old friends…and is on its way to something even worse. A decade postmilitary, Reacher has an ATM card and the clothes on his back—no phone, no ties, and no address. But now a woman from his old unit has done the impossible. From Chicago, Frances Neagley finds Reacher, using a signal only the eight members of their elite team of army investigators would know. She tells him a terrifying story—about the brutal death of a man they both served with. Soon Reacher is reuniting with the survivors of his old team, scrambling to raise the living, bury the dead, and connect the dots in a mystery that is growing darker by the day. The deeper they dig, the more they don’ t know: about two other comrades who have suddenly gone missing—and a trail that leads into the neon of Vegas and the darkness of international terrorism. For now, Reacher can only react. To every sound. Every suspicion. Every scent and every moment. Then Reacher will trust the people he once trusted with his life—and take this thing all the way to the end. Because in a world of bad luck and trouble, when someone targets Jack Reacher and his team, they’d better be ready for what comes right back at them… BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Lee Child’s Blue Moon.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This book shows how contemporary psychoanalytic thinking can be applied in the everyday practice of medicine to enhance the practice of family medicine and all clinical specialties. Dr. Steinberg analyzes his writings over the past 35 years—on psychiatry and family medicine, liaison psychiatry, and supervision and mentoring—based on developments in psychoanalytic thinking. Divided into sections based on different venues of medical practice, including family medicine clinics, inpatient medical and surgical units, and psychiatric inpatient units and outpatient programs, chapters illustrate how various concepts in psychoanalysis can enhance physicians’ understanding and management of their patients. A concluding section contains applications of psychoanalytic thought in non-clinical areas pertinent to medicine, including preventing suicide among physicians, residents, and medical students, sexual abuse of patients by physicians, and oral examination anxiety in physicians. Readers will learn to apply psychoanalytic concepts with a rational approach that enhances their understanding and management of their patients and practice of medicine generally.
