            The Immune Mystery: A Doctor's Impassioned Quest to Solve the Puzzle of Autoimmune Disease (Hardback)

            Part memoir, part medical mystery, this page-turning debut shares the remarkable story of how one doctor discovered a potential treatment for autoimmune diseases. More than 20 million Americans have autoimmune diseases, which occur when the immune system attacks the body. The roo...t cause of these understudied illnesses is unknown. The Immune Mystery shares the deeply personal story of doctor and researcher Anita Kass's quest to solve the autoimmune puzzle. In lucid prose, Kass begins with the premature death of her mother, who developed rheumatoid arthritis shortly after giving birth. Only thirteen at the time, Kass vowed to study the illness and one day find a cure. She then describes her decades-long pursuit of potentially revolutionary research into what causes autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and multiple sclerosis and how to treat them. Her discovery eventually earns her a record-breaking pharmaceutical deal. A compelling blend of incredible determination and cutting-edge science, The Immune Mystery introduces a powerful new voice in medical storytelling.

            A gorgeously illustrated deep dive into the immune system that will forever change how you think about your body, from the creator of the popular science YouTube channel Kurzgesagt--In a Nutshell Through wonderful analogies and a genius for clarifying complex ideas, Immune is a t...ruly brilliant introduction to the human body's vast system for fighting infections and other threats. --John Green, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars You wake up and feel a tickle in your throat. Your head hurts. You're mildly annoyed as you get the kids ready for school and dress for work yourself. Meanwhile, an epic war is being fought, just below your skin. Millions are fighting and dying for you to be able to complain as you head out the door. So what, exactly, is your immune system? Second only to the human brain in its complexity, it is one of the oldest and most critical facets of life on Earth. Without it, you would die within days. In Immune, Philipp Dettmer, the brains behind the most popular science channel on YouTube, takes readers on a journey through the fortress of the human body and its defenses. There is a constant battle of staggering scale raging within us, full of stories of invasion, strategy, defeat, and noble self-sacrifice. In fact, in the time you've been reading this, your immune system has probably identified and eradicated a cancer cell that started to grow in your body. Each chapter delves into an element of the immune system, including defenses like antibodies and inflammation as well as threats like bacteria, allergies, and cancer, as Dettmer reveals why boosting your immune system is actually nonsense, how parasites sneak their way past your body's defenses, how viruses work, and what goes on in your wounds when you cut yourself. Enlivened by engaging graphics and immersive descriptions, Immune turns one of the most intricate, interconnected, and confusing subjects--immunology--into a gripping adventure through an astonishing alie

            Depression, anxiety, and burnout are the Black Plague of our modern times. These mental wellness problems afflict hundreds of millions of people around the world and account for hundreds of billions of dollars in expenditures on antidepressant drugs and related feel better produc...ts. Unfortunately, most of these solutions make us feel different but not really better - and certainly not the way that we want to feel with good mood, clear thinking, and abundant energy. The World Health Organization has identified mental wellness issues (stress, depression, anxiety) as the leading cause of global health burden - and for the last century, we've had the mistaken notion that these problems were all in our head - when in reality they were largely in our gut. The discovery of the gut-brain-axis and especially the explosion of research around the microbiome (the 100 trillion bacteria that live in our gastrointestinal tract) is causing a fundamental shift in how we think about - and how we improve - mental wellness. Whole Vigor refers to a completeness of mental wellness and physical health. It encompasses the entirety of physical energy, mental acuity, and emotional well-being. Feelings of physical energy and stress resilience emanate from a balanced Body; Mental acuity, clarity, and creativity are the hallmarks of a balanced Brain; and Emotional well-being is a holistic sensation that infuses our entire being when our gut Biome is balanced. Optimizing the connection across the entire Body-Brain-Biome is the secret to achieving Whole Vigor and maximizing mood, motivation, and mental wellness.

            You know what went wrong. This is the untold story of what went right. Few were ready when a mysterious respiratory illness emerged in Wuhan, China, in January 2020. Politicians, government officials, business leaders and public-health professionals were unprepared for the most d...evastating pandemic in a century. Many of the world's biggest drug and vaccine makers were slow to react or couldn't muster an effective response. It was up to a small group of unlikely and untested scientists and executives to save civilization. A French businessman dismissed by many as a fabulist. A Turkish immigrant with little virus experience. A quirky Midwesterner obsessed with insect cells. A Boston scientist employing questionable techniques. A British scientist despised by his peers. Far from the limelight, each had spent years developing innovative vaccine approaches. Their work was met with scepticism and scorn. By 2020, these individuals had little proof of progress. Yet they and their colleagues wanted to be the ones to stop a virulent virus holding the world hostage. They scrambled to turn their life's work into life-saving vaccines in a matter of months, each gunning to make the big breakthrough - and to beat each other for the glory that a vaccine guaranteed. A number-one New York Times bestselling author and award-winning Wall Street Journal investigative journalist, Zuckerman takes us inside the top-secret laboratories, corporate clashes and high-stakes government negotiations that led to effective shots. Deeply reported and endlessly gripping, this is a dazzling, blow-by-blow chronicle of the most consequential scientific breakthrough of our time. It's a story of courage, genius and heroism. It's also a tale of heated rivalries, unbridled ambitions, crippling insecurities and unexpected drama. A Shot to Save the World is the story of how science saved the world.
