    Survival of the Sickest: The Surprising Connections Between Disease and Longevity (P.S.)

    Survival of the Sickest: The Surprising Connections Between Disease and Longevity (P.S.) Lowest new price: $8.75
    Lowest used price: $4.37
    List price: $15.99
    Author: Dr. Sharon Moalem
    Brand: Moalem, Sharon/ Prince, Jonathan

    Joining the ranks of modern myth busters, Dr. Sharon Moalem turns our current understanding of illness on its head and challenges us to fundamentally change the way we think about our bodies, our health, and our relationship to just about every other living thing on earth. Through a fresh and engaging examination of our evolutionary history, Dr. Moalem reveals how many of the conditions that are diseases today actually gave our ancestors a leg up in the survival sweepstakes. But Survival of the Sickest doesn't stop there. It goes on to demonstrate just how little modern medicine really understands about human health, and offers a new way of thinking that can help all of us live longer, healthier lives.

    Dan Ariely on Survival of the Sickest
    MIT professor Dan Ariely has become one of the leaders in the growing field of behavioral economics, and his bestselling book debut, Predictably Irrational, has brought his ideas--and his ingenious experiments and charming sense of humor--to a much wider audience. With the simplest of tests (often an auction or a quiz given under a few conditions) he shows again and again not only that we are wired to make irrational decisions in many situations, but that we do so in remarkably predictable ways.

    I have always been puzzled by the way in which genetic diseases have managed to survive throughout the ages. How could it be that these diseases were able to withstand the evolutionary process, where only the most fit survive, and continue to be transferred from one generation to the next? Survival of the Sickest provides a thought provoking yet entertaining explanation to this puzzle.

    In this insightful book Dr. Sharon Moalem demonstrates how conditions that are considered unhealthy (such as hemochromatosis, diabetes, and high cholesterol), or even deadly in extreme cases, might actually put their carriers at an advantage in combating other life-threatening illnesses. For example, he explains that hemochromatosis, a disease that, if left untreated, will kill you, may have actually been a defense against the deadliest pandemic in history--the bubonic plague during the 14th century. It turns out that this genetic mutation, which continues to be passed down through generations, actually helped spare many lives at one point.

    Throughout the book, Dr. Moalem draws many connections between seemingly disparate subjects, such as the accidental invention of ice wine and cold diuresis, in order to illustrate the basic mechanisms of genetics and medicine in charming and intuitive ways. He skillfully interweaves his knowledge of history, genetics, and medicine not only as they relate to specific medical conditions but also in a way that addresses important challenges of modern society and our future evolution.

    In the most general terms, Dr. Moalem's description of the human body and its complexity left me in awe of how far we have come in our understanding of biology and medicine, while also being reminded that the road to understanding ourselves is still wide open with much more to learn in the decades, and even centuries, to come. It is a fantastic journey on which he leads us and Dr. Moalem is a kind, knowledgeable, humorous, and helpful guide.

    Wild Together: My Adventures with Loki the Wolfdog Lowest new price: $13.20
    Lowest used price: $13.93
    List price: $19.95
    Author: Kelly Lund

    For all lovers of dogs and adventure, come experience Kelly and Loki the Wolfdog’s world together, as they explore the country and inspire those around them, revealing the endless possibilities between a man and his four-legged companion. 

    During a blizzard in 2012, Kelly brought Loki―a husky/arctic wolf/malamute mix―home. Growing up in a family that took dog ownership very seriously, Kelly had his fair share of experiences with large dogs. But Loki was different. Instead of the dog entering into Kelly’s world, Kelly felt that he had to listen closely to Loki and enter into his world. At that time, Kelly decided that he would do everything possible to not leave him behind at the house. They started backcountry snowboarding together when Loki was four months old, and before his third birthday, he’d seen most of the western United States.

    Loki the Wolfdog has developed a massive following across social media. With 1.5 million followers on Instagram and 140,000 likes on Facebook, people have grown to love following Kelly and Loki’s adventures. Starting out just for fun, Kelly started an Instagram account for Loki documenting their escapades. The story was later picked up by numerous websites, giving them unexpected exposure. Realizing that they now have a voice in the social media community, they want to give back and inspire others to get out, explore the world, and make memories with their pups.

    Loki the Wolfdog has a massive following, because people have enjoyed watching Kelly and Loki’s undeniable bond. The story is both philosophical and visual: an invitation to experience life through Kelly and Loki’s eyes.

    Another New York Times bestseller from the author of The Good Good Pig, this “fascinating…touching…informative…entertaining” (Daily Beast) book explores the emotional and physical world of the octopus—a surprisingly complex, intelligent, and spirited creature—and the remarkable connections it makes with humans.

    In pursuit of the wild, solitary, predatory octopus, popular naturalist Sy Montgomery has practiced true immersion journalism. From New England aquarium tanks to the reefs of French Polynesia and the Gulf of Mexico, she has befriended octopuses with strikingly different personalities—gentle Athena, assertive Octavia, curious Kali, and joyful Karma. Each creature shows her cleverness in myriad ways: escaping enclosures like an orangutan; jetting water to bounce balls; and endlessly tricking companions with multiple “sleights of hand” to get food.

    Scientists have only recently accepted the intelligence of dogs, birds, and chimpanzees but now are watching octopuses solve problems and are trying to decipher the meaning of the animal’s color-changing techniques. With her “joyful passion for these intelligent and fascinating creatures” (Library Journal Editors’ Spring Pick), Montgomery chronicles the growing appreciation of this mollusk as she tells a unique love story. By turns funny, entertaining, touching, and profound, The Soul of an Octopus reveals what octopuses can teach us about the meeting of two very different minds.
