Book excerpt: Scientists have long known that chemical communication via pheromones is a powerful influence on how animals develop, mate, bond, and nurture their offspring. Human animals are no exception. Pheromones, explain the authors, alter hormone levels, can accelerate puberty, control women's menstrual cycles, influence our choice in a mate, and even influence our sexual orientation. They help us tell lovers and family members from strangers and are essential to the mother-infant bond. Pheromones influence how often we have sex, and with whom. They influence how the brain develops, what we remember, and how we learn. Grounded in solid scientific research, yet maintaining an easy-to-read style, The Scent of Eros is an engrossing read about a whole new world under our noses! Kohl and Francoeur show the pathway from social-environmental sensory input to the hormones that influence our behavior, especially our sexual behavior. The authors suggest and show that pheromones are the primary link between the nature and the nurture of human sexuality.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This easy-access guide summarizes the dynamic specialty of rehabilitation psychology, focusing on real-world practice in the medical setting. It begins by placing readers at the frontlines of practice with a solid foundation for gathering information and communicating effectively with patients, families, and staff. The book’s topics run a wide gamut of patient conditions (neurological, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular), related problems (sleep and fatigue issues, depression) and practitioner responses (encouraging coping and compliance, pediatric and geriatric considerations). Models of disability and adaptation, review of competency concerns, and guidelines for group and individual therapy offer evidence-based insights for helping patients manage their health conditions, benefit from rehabilitation interventions, and prepare for their post-rehabilitation lives and activities. Coverage spotlights these core areas: ·Basics and biopsychosocial practicalities, from behavioral medicine and psychopharmacology to ethical and forensic issues. ·Populations, problems, and procedures, including stroke, TBI, substance abuse, transplants, and severe mental illness. ·Assessment and practical interventions such as pain, anxiety, cognitive functioning, and more. ·Consultation, advocacy, and interdisciplinary teams. ·Practice management, administration, and professional self-care. ·Research, technology, and program evaluation. Practical Psychology in Medical Rehabilitation is an essential professional development tool for novice (and a refresher for veteran) psychologists and neuropsychologists, as well as rehabilitation physicians, nurses, therapists, psychiatrists, and social workers. It presents in depth both the hallmarks of the specialty and the nuts and bolts of being a valuable team player in a medical setting.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As you read through the Bible, you will notice that God is telling the stories of how He dealt with people through the ages. One common theme runs through all of history. That theme includes three events that seem to happen to everyone who chooses to follow Him. First, they are sinners. Without God's help, they cannot obey Him and receive His blessing. Second, they all seem to go through some form of trial, persecution, or suffering. Third, they turn to God, put their lives in His hands, and God blesses them. You see that in the life of Joseph from the of book of Genesis. You see it in the life of David. You see it in the life of Job. You see it in the life of Mary, the mother of Jesus. You see it in the life of Peter. You see it in the life of Paul. Most importantly, you see it in the life of Jesus. I believe that the reason God wrote the Bible in the way He did is to show us how He wants to work in the lives of every person, even today. This book tells the story of one person who has and still is experiencing these things in his life today. The purpose of this book is to encourage you no matter where you are in your relationship with God. God loves you and is working in your life just as He did in the lives of the people whose stories are told in the Bible. You may not be a Christian yet, you may be a new Christian, you may have been walking with Jesus for years. Whatever point you are at in your relationship with God, I pray that this book will strengthen you to continue to seek after God as He has been seeking after you all your life.

Book excerpt: Ladder To The Sky is an adventure/romance novel of new age spiritual fiction that links the contemporary world of spiritual thought and energy healing with the ancient world of Taoist energy teachings. The novel offers a true understanding of the potential for physical, mental and spiritual growth. Dr. W. W. Wang, called Uncle Chi in New York's Chinatown, is actually a member of the High Council of the Immortals of Peng-Lai. The Taoist immortals live in the Islands Of The Blessed, three islands hidden in the Eastern China Sea which have preserved the high secrets of Taoist practices for thousands of years. The Islands are the Chinese equivalent of Shangri-La, and represent an authentic Taoist legend. Uncle Chi has been sent to the west to introduce Taoist healing practices and to develop the link between the High Council and the Hsien Brotherhood, a world-wide humanistic but secret organization of men and women devoted to the practices and ideals of Taoist philosophy. Trouble ensues when a local Tong master tries to steal the book containing Uncle Chi's secrets. With the help of his student Dr. Andrea Drake and his publisher, Richard Harrington, Uncle Chi must outwit the deadly threat from the Tong warlord, as well as face the danger to the Islands Of The Blessed and the Hsien Brotherhood from a proposed nuclear test. Synopsis Andrea Drake, a psychologist, and her mentor, a Taoist master and Chinese medical Qi Cong healer commonly-called Uncle Chi write a book teaching people how to access the universal energy called Qi. Richard Harrington, an American publisher wants to publish it and a love story develops between Andrea and Rick. Complications arise when a Tong master in Chinatown, ancient adversary of the Taoist master, misunderstands the nature of the book and thinks it contains the hidden secrets of immortal life. His efforts to steal the manuscript fill the story with a full gamut of exciting encounters, pitting the ruthless tactics and manpower of the Tong against the ingenuity and luck of Rick and Andrea, and the skill of Uncle Chi. But a greater danger than the Tong lurks in the wings. Uncle Chi is actually a member of the High Council of the Immortals of Peng-Lai. In Chinese history and largely unknown in the west, the Taoist immortals live in the Islands Of The Blessed, three islands hidden in the Eastern China Sea which have preserved the high secrets of Taoist practices for thousands of years. The Islands are the Chinese equivalent of Shangri-La, and represent an authentic Taoist legend. Uncle Chi has been sent to the west to introduce Taoist healing practices, and more importantly, to develop the link between the High Council and the Hsien Brotherhood, a world-wide humanistic but secret organization of men and women devoted to the practices and ideals of Taoist philosophy. As well as facing the threat from the Tong master in New York, Uncle Chi is forced to tell Rick and Andrea about the Hsien Brotherhood and the imminent threat to the Islands Of The Blessed from a proposed nuclear blast by the Chinese government. As the story becomes more complicated, the momentum alternates between the plot line and the gradual explication of Taoist philosophy and Qi Cong healing practices. The story shifts between the contemporary world of New York City and the legends and lores of Chinese history and the Hsien Brotherhood. Ladder To The Sky concentrates on outwitting the threat from the Tong Master, and prepares the reader for the sequel, Islands Of The Blessed, which continues the action in the Eastern China Sea with a new set of adversaries, and a new level of teaching, introducing the reader to energy practices involving human energy fields. Both novels link the contemporary world of new age thought and healing with the ancient world of Taoist energy teachings, pointing towards the potential for physical, mental and spiritual growth.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Since its publication in Germany, Manfred Clauss's introduction to the Roman Mithras cult has become widely accepted as the most reliable, as well as the most readable, account of its elusive and fascinating subject. For the English edition the author has revised the work to take account of recent research and new archaeological discoveries. The mystery cult of Mithras first became evident in Rome towards the end of the first century AD. During the next two centuries, carried by its soldier and merchant devotees, it spread to the frontier of the western empire from Britain to Bosnia. Perhaps because of odd similarities between the cult and their own religion the early Christians energetically suppressed it, frequently constructing churches over the caves (Mithraea) in which its rituals took place. By the end of the fourth century the cult was extinct.Professor Clauss draws on the archaeological evidence from over 400 temples and their contents including over a thousand representations of ritual in sculpure and painting to seek an understanding of the nature and purpose of the cult, and what its mysteries and secret rites of initiation and sacrifice meant to its devotees. In doing so he introduces the reader to the nature of the polytheistic societies of the Roman Empire, in which relations and distinctions between gods and mortals now seem strangely close and blurred. He also considers the connections of Mithraicism with astrology, and examines how far it can be seen as a direct descendant of the ancient cult of Mitra, the Persian god of contract, cattle and light. The book combines imaginative insight with coherent argument. It is well-structured, accessibly written and extensively illustrated. Richard Gordon, the translator and himself a distinguished scholar of the subject, has provided a bibliography of further reading for anglophone readers.
