DESCRIPTION:

From an award-winning journalist, an explosive narrative investigation of the generic drug boom that reveals fraud and life-threatening dangers on a global scale–The Jungle for pharmaceuticals

Many have hailed the widespread use of generic drugs as one of the most important public-health developments of the twenty-first century. Today, almost 90 percent of our pharmaceutical market is comprised of generics, the majority of which are manufactured overseas. We have been reassured by our doctors, our pharmacists and our regulators that generic drugs are identical to their brand-name counterparts, just less expensive. But is this really true?

Katherine Eban’s Bottle of Lies exposes the deceit behind generic-drug manufacturing–and the attendant risks for global health. Drawing on exclusive accounts from whistleblowers and regulators, as well as thousands of pages of confidential FDA documents, Eban reveals an industry where fraud is rampant, companies routinely falsify data, and executives circumvent almost every principle of safe manufacturing to minimize cost and maximize profit, confident in their ability to fool inspectors. Meanwhile, patients unwittingly consume medicine with unpredictable and dangerous effects.

The story of generic drugs is truly global. It connects middle America to China, India, sub-Saharan Africa and Brazil, and represents the ultimate litmus test of globalization: what are the risks of moving drug manufacturing offshore, and are they worth the savings?

A decade-long investigation with international sweep, high-stakes brinkmanship and big money at its core, Bottle of Lies reveals how the world’s greatest public-health innovation has become one of its most astonishing swindles.

A thrilling adventure in Florida Horse Country

With her tiny horse training business in Florida’s equestrian capital, she’s determined to get her name in lights as a star in Eventing. But Jules has a chip on her shoulder, and it’s weighing her down.

Through summer storms, sultry days, and hurricane winds, Jules will have to weather every challenge Florida sends her way if she wants to survive in the horse business. To keep her dreams alive, she might just have to accept help from friends who care about her, despite everything she throws at them.

DESCRIPTION:

What Doug finds in the secret compartment of his new red Corvette will forever change his life. It will also change Catherine’s. Doug and Catherine come from two different worlds. Catherine’s world is one of privilege and wealth. Doug grew up dirt poor and full of envy of others who had the things that he wanted but could not have. His goal was to one day have all the things he coveted. Their worlds collide when Catherine, VP of a large New York City marketing firm, hires Doug. As soon as Doug learns of Catherine’s wealth, he sees Catherine as his ticket to all the things he covets. After a whirlwind courtship, they are married.

Poor boy meets rich girl should have resulted in happily ever after — not exactly. Doug quickly learns he also covets independence. Events begin to unfold in each of their lives. For Doug, it is his mysterious discovery in the secret compartment of the Corvette. For Catherine, it is a business meeting with Alex Droxell at the Osprey Cove Lodge. When Catherine enters the beautiful and serene lodge, it’s as though she is entering another place and time. The lodge is an escape from the nightmare she is living back home.

Authors Note: The Osprey Cove Lodge series is uniquely written, spanning seven geographic locations from the scenic Canadian region of the Rideau lakes to the beautiful shores of the Caribbean. An interesting web of mystery develops as the characters’ lives intertwine. The setting for The Osprey Cove Lodge series was born from my love of the beauty of this region in Canada. The description of the lodge is so beautiful and inviting that you will want to pack your bags and head there. The series is written in a continuing fashion; please be sure to read the books in the order written.

A Vision of Empathy is entertaining, funny, heart-warming and inspirational; and for the autism community and beyond, it is destined to make long-lasting changes for the better.

“Empathetic, professionally illustrated & insightful.” – Anna Kennedy OBE, Founder, Autism’s Got Talent

Noah does some bizarre things. Most of everything he does is peculiar. Why? Sadey thinks there’s just no explanation! But with the help of some amazing animals and crazy critters, Sadey gets a glimpse inside of Noah’s world and learns that, just maybe, there’s a reason for everything!

A Vision of Empathy is autism awareness and anti-bullying at its finest. With an engaging story and beautiful illustrations, it will leave a mark in the minds of all who read it.

By following Sadey, as she embarks on a journey of discovery, the reader is introduced to several widely misunderstood autistic traits. One by one, the reason for each becomes clear, and when things are clear, they are accepted as ‘normal’. The lesson occurs naturally, in a genuinely entertaining story.

Every behaviour is a form of communication; every action connected to a person’s emotions, thoughts, values and wishes. A Vision of Empathy explores this concept by showing the world as Noah sees it. The results are illuminating for all.
