They all thought he was gone. But he was alive and trapped inside his own body for ten years. In January 1988 Martin Pistorius, aged twelve, fell inexplicably sick. First he lost his voice and stopped eating. Then he slept constantly and shunned human contact. Doctors were mystified. Within eighteen months he was mute and wheelchair-bound. Martin's parents were told an unknown degenerative disease left him with the mind of a baby and less than two years to live. Martin was moved to care centers for severely disabled children. The stress and heartache shook his parents’ marriage and their family to the core. Their boy was gone. Or so they thought. Ghost Boy is the heart-wrenching story of one boy’s return to life through the power of love and faith. In these pages, readers see a parent’s resilience, the consequences of misdiagnosis, abuse at the hands of cruel caretakers, and the unthinkable duration of Martin’s mental alertness betrayed by his lifeless body. We also see a life reclaimed—a business created, a new love kindled—all from a wheelchair. Martin's emergence from his own darkness invites us to celebrate our own lives and fight for a better life for others.

"The Chronic Stress Crisis explains in detail many common reasons for the current health crisis in the US, including over-consumption of grains, heavy metal toxicity, chemical hypersensitivity from exposure to environmental toxins, pesticides, herbicides and other sources of chemicals in our daily lives. I particularly enjoy this book because there is a strong emphasis on the Chronic Stress Response as being an underlying and immutable factor in the development of most disease processes. Emotional stress, dietary stress and the stress of the many burdens placed on our bodies by our modern lifestyles all culminate in the onset of diseases of modern times such as cancer, heart disease and autoimmune problems. This is a great resource to help provide an understanding of how you can take effective measures to start to take back control of your health." -Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder of www.mercola.com and author of Dr. Mercola's Total Health Program "Bill Timmins pioneered the field of health care from the inside out. He didn't just study and practice health care as an academic-he mastered body and life through his real-life challenges. It was Dr. Timmins' own life experiences that made him one of the most intelligent, capable, loving and caring physicians and teachers I've ever known. What Dr. Timmins shares in this important book may very well save your life and make it much more comfortable too!" -Paul Chek, Holistic Health Practitioner, founder of the C.H.E.K Institute and P~P~S Success Mastery Program

Vintage Feminism: classic feminist texts in short form WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY NATALIE HAYNES When this book was first published in 1949 it was to outrage and scandal. Never before had the case for female liberty been so forcefully and successfully argued. De Beauvoir’s belief that ‘One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman’ switched on light bulbs in the heads of a generation of women and began a fight for greater equality and economic independence. These pages contain the key passages of the book that changed perceptions of women forever. TRANSLATED BY CONSTANCE BORDE AND SHEILA MALOVANY-CHEVALLIER ANNOTATED AND INTRODUCED BY MARTINE REID

These conversations with other artists about four primal aspects of the everyday—sex, food, money, death—uncover the heart, the nerve, and the scar tissue behind some of the late 20th century's edgiest work."—C.Carr, The Village Voice
