THE BOOK IN 19 WORDS: A CANCER PATIENT DISCOVERS THAT GARDENING IS GOOD MEDICINE - AND FINDS A POWERFUL HEALING PARTNER IN HER OWN BACKYARD. Jenny Peterson is a breast cancer survivor. Her long road through cancer treatment was hard, emotional and often deeply depressing. The one thing that pulled her out of the darkness was her desire to be able to garden again. Peterson credits her garden with clearing her mental fog and overcoming her depression, physical limitations and pain. The Cancer Survivor's Garden Companion explores the therapeutic benefits of this vital "earth connection." With gentle empathy, beautiful photographs and easy how-to steps, she shows others how to create their own backyard haven for healing - a personal restorative garden - with a bonus of well-grounded guidance about diet, exercise, mental focus and spiritual renewal.

We've all heard stories of people who've experienced seemingly miraculous recoveries from illness, but can the same thing happen for our world? According to pioneering biologist Bruce H. Lipton, it's not only possible, it's already occurring. In Spontaneous Evolution, this world-renowned expert in the emerging science of epigenetics reveals how our changing understanding of biology will help us navigate this turbulent period in our planet's history and how each of us can participate in this global shift. In collaboration with political philosopher Steve Bhaerman, Dr. Lipton invites readers to reconsider: the ''unquestionable'' pillars of biology, including random evolution, survival of the fittest, and the role of DNA; the relationship between mind and matter; how our beliefs about nature and human nature shape our politics, culture, and individual lives; and how each of us can become planetary ''stem cells'' supporting the health and growth of our world. By questioning the old beliefs that got us to where we are today and keep us stuck in the status quo, we can trigger the spontaneous evolution of our species that will usher in a brighter future.

Topsy is a psychoanalytic tale of the effects of a dog on its owner; the analyst is thegreat Marie Bonaparte. Only after being told that her dog had cancer did she realie theattachment she developed to Topsy. She describes the emotions she experienced during the time ofTopsy's illness and subsequent healing. Written in France and Greece at the onset of World WarII, the story of Topsy's cancer clearly is intended to convey the ills of Europe at that time. Bonaparte's relationship with her dog reveals her own fearsabout aging, dying, being alone, as well as the uncertainty of the political situation. As shetells her story, Bonaparte is reminded of the experience of her father, who also suffered fromcancer. Topsy, while not written as a scientific study, provides insight into thepsychoanalytical effects of relationships between humans and animals. It tells us much about oneof psychotherapy's founding personages as well as the members of her professional circle in acritical period of European history. In the newintroduction, Gary Genosko reflects on Sigmund Freud's own affection for, and use of, dogs inhis analyses. He goes on to describe the relationship between Freud and Bonaparte and how dogsplayed a significant part in that companionship. Topsy will be of interest to psychologists,psychiatrists, and those who love, and have been loved by dogs. Marie Bonaparte(1882-1962) was a renowned French psychoanalyst whose best-known book was APsychoanalytic Study of Edgar Allen Poe. She also translated many of Freud'sbooks into French. GaryGenosko is a researcher affiliated with the McLuhan Program in Culture andTechnology at the University of Toronto in Canada, and the department of Sociology, Goldsmith'sCollege, University of London, England.

A Practical, Get-Your-Hands-in-the-Soil Manual Global climate change, increasing pollution, and continued rapid population growth is wreaking havoc on the planet. Stabilizing the environment at safe levels requires a large-scale restoration of damaged ecosystems. Geotherapy: Innovative Methods of Soil Fertility Restoration, Carbon Sequestration, and Reversing CO2 Increase outlines the basic concepts of geotherapy and highlights the importance of healing the biosphere’s ability to store soil carbon to prevent climate change impacts. Facing challenges head on, it addresses how and why policymakers have underestimated the long-term impacts of climate change and how we can correct the flawed carbon management mechanisms today. The book also factors in where carbon can be most effectively stored, how quickly that can be done, and the practical and policy actions needed to get there. This text presents innovative new technologies for restoring the most productive ecosystems on land while maintaining high biodiversity. It addresses processes and techniques of soil carbon restoration through biogeochemical cycling, biochar, slow-release fertilizers, weathering of minerals (olivine) and rock (basalt) powders, amendments and bio-fertilizers, and the establishment of vetiver and other perennials. Written by highly recognized professionals from every continent except Antarctica, this extensive work consists of 34 chapters covering issues that include: field experiences with biochar including a history of its research; practical uses of biochar in farming systems and the use of biochar for soil fertility enhancement; the potential of remineralization as a global movement; seawater concentrate for abundant agriculture; superior food production using sea salt and plant extracts; recycling waste nutrients using biochar and limestone; and commercially viable carbon farming. The book concludes with a chapter providing general thoughts on regreening the earth and averting a global crisis. Geotherapy: Innovative Methods of Soil Fertility Restoration, Carbon Sequestration, and Reversing CO2 Increase is an encyclopedia of ideas providing the tools needed for anyone involved with the ecological restoration and transformation of the planet.
