Author: Barry Werth
Brand: Brand: Simon Schuster
Join journalist Barry Werth as he pulls back the curtain on Vertex, a start-up pharmaceutical company, and witness firsthand the intense drama being played out in the pioneering and hugely profitable field of drug research. Founded by Joshua Boger, a dynamic Harvard- and Merck-trained scientific whiz kid, Vertex is dedicated to designing -- atom by atom -- both a new life-saving immunosuppressant drug, and a drug to combat the virus that causes AIDS.
You will be hooked from start to finish, as you go from the labs, where obsessive, fiercely competitive scientists struggle for a breakthrough, to Wall Street, where the wheeling and dealing takes on a life of its own, as Boger courts investors and finally decides to take Vertex public. Here is a fascinating no-holds-barred account of the business of science, which includes an updated epilogue about the most recent developments in the quest for a drug to cure AIDS.
From test tubes to the Wall Street IPO and beyond, this is the riveting true story of a start-up pharmaceutical company working to create an anti-AIDS drug. Scientifically accurate, yet written with an attention to plot, timing, dialogue, and development of character more characteristic of the best thrillers.

|Vision and Art (Updated and Expanded Edition)
Lowest new price: $26.31
Lowest used price: $15.25
List price: $40.00
Author: Margaret S. Livingstone
With the original release of Vision and Art in 2002, Harvard professor Margaret Livingstone successfully bridged the gap between science and art, exploring how great painters fool the brain: why Mona Lisa’s smile seems so mysterious, or Monet’s Poppy Field appears to sway. In the revised and expanded edition, Livingstone presents two new chapters of her latest observations, has substantially expanded other chapters, and updates the rest of the existing text with new insights gleaned from her ongoing research, bringing the book to the cutting edge in the field of neuroscience. Accompanying Livingstone’s lively prose are many charts and diagrams that lucidly illustrate her points, as well as in-depth analyses of the phenomena found in major works of art. Be it the explanation of common optical illusions or the breakdown of techniques painters use to create those illusions, Vision and Art provides a wealth of information for artists, scholars, and scientists alike.

Author: Noah Strycker
Brand: Riverhead Books
An entertaining and profound look at the lives of birds, illuminating their surprising world—and deep connection with humanity.
Birds are highly intelligent animals, yet their intelligence is dramatically different from our own and has been little understood. As we learn more about the secrets of bird life, we are unlocking fascinating insights into memory, relationships, game theory, and the nature of intelligence itself.
The Thing with Feathers explores the astonishing homing abilities of pigeons, the good deeds of fairy-wrens, the influential flocking abilities of starlings, the deft artistry of bowerbirds, the extraordinary memories of nutcrackers, the lifelong loves of albatrosses, and other mysteries—revealing why birds do what they do, and offering a glimpse into our own nature.
Drawing deep from personal experience, cutting-edge science, and colorful history, Noah Strycker spins captivating stories about the birds in our midst and shares the startlingly intimate coexistence of birds and humans. With humor, style, and grace, he shows how our view of the world is often, and remarkably, through the experience of birds. You’ve never read a book about birds like this one.
|Handbook of Listeria Monocytogenes
Lowest new price: $167.86
Lowest used price: $36.00
List price: $245.00
Brand: Brand: CRC Press
Once feared as a deadly intracellular bacterium with the extraordinary capacity to survive a wide array of arduous external stressors, Listeria monocytogenes is increasingly recognized as a preferred vector for delivering anti-infective and anti-cancer vaccine molecules.
A reliable, single-source reference on the fundamental aspects of this bacterium is crucial to support future study and further the advancement of biomedical sciences and intervention strategies.
Drawn from an international panel of scientists with notable expertise in their respective fields, the Handbook of Listeria monocytogenes is divided into four sections:
Section I discusses the biology and pathogenicity of this bacterium, including epidemiology and stress responses.
Section II demonstrates identification and detection techniques such as phenotypic and genotypic identification, strain typing, and virulence determination.
Section III details the current knowledge of genetic manipulation of Listeria, including comparative genomics, genomic divisions, epidemic clones and population structure, and analysis of cell envelope proteins.
Section IV covers innate and adaptive immunity against Listeria, and examines the use of this bacterium for anti-infective and anti-cancer vaccine development.
The first comprehensive compilation of knowledge in this area, this handbook is an indispensable reference for anyone embarking on the path of manipulation of Listeria as either a model for the study of the host-bacterium relationship or as a tool for delivering protective molecules to cytoplasm.
