Schizophrenics in the United States currently fare worse than patients in the world’s poorest countries. In Mad in America, medical journalist Robert Whitaker argues that modern treatments for the severely mentally ill are just old medicine in new bottles, and that we as a society are deeply deluded about their efficacy. The widespread use of lobotomies in the 1920s and 1930s gave way in the 1950s to electroshock and a wave of new drugs. In what is perhaps Whitaker’s most damning revelation, Mad in America examines how drug companies in the 1980s and 1990s skewed their studies to prove that new antipsychotic drugs were more effective than the old, while keeping patients in the dark about dangerous side effects. A haunting, deeply compassionate audiobook now revised with a new introduction. Mad in America raises important questions about our obligations to the mad, the meaning of ´´insanity,” and what we value most about the human mind. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Kayser.

When Jessica tries to sleep off a bad flu, Louis and the boys splurge on a pricey pay-per-view wrestling match that she would never allow.

Der Iller-Radweg beginnt in den Allgäuer Alpen im beliebten Wintersportort Oberstdorf, wo aus den Flüssen Breitach, Stillach und Tretach die Iller entsteht. Diese bahnt sich als gebändigter Alpenfluss mit frischem bläulichem Wasser ihren Weg in Richtung Norden und durchstreift dabei ein wunderbar weites Tal mit interessanten Städten wie Immenstadt, Kempten oder Kellmünz. Als in die Breite gewachsener Fluss mündet die Iller in Ulm in den Donaustrom. Dort werden Sie mit einem malerischen Fischerviertel und dem berühmten gotischen Münster empfangen - am Ende des Radweges ein überaus lohnenswertes Ziel. Etwas weiter östlich verläuft der Zusam-Radweg zwischen Kaufbeuren mit seiner sehenswerten mittelalterlichen Altstadt und dem malerischen Donauwörth. Während der Radweg schon in den sanften Hügeln des Allgäu beginnt, hat der Fluss seinen Ursprung am südlichen Rand des Naturparks Augsburg - Westliche Wälder. Von hier fließt er erst durch den waldreichen Naturpark und anschließend durch die Weite des Donaurieds bis nach Donauwörth, wo er sich mit dem Donaustrom vereint. Unterwegs laden schöne Stationen wie der Kneippkurort Bad Wörishofen oder der Wallfahrtsort Maria Vesperbild zu einer Erkundung ein.
SET TO BE ONE OF THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY, CONTROVERSIAL AND EXPLOSIVE DEBUTS OF 2017 - for fans of quality psychological suspense and reading group fiction: once you read this book you´ll want to talk about it. ´NEW NAME . NEW FAMILY. SHINY. NEW. ME.´ Annie´s mother is a serial killer. The only way she can make her stop is to hand her in to the police. But out of sight is not out of mind. As her mother´s trial looms, the secrets of her past won´t let Annie sleep, even with a new foster family and name - Milly. A fresh start. Now, surely, she can be whoever she wants to be. But Milly´s mother is still a serial killer. And blood is thicker than water. Good me, bad me. She is, after all, her mother´s daughter...

There are some decisions you can never unmake. You can only atone for them - or try to. During her senior year of college, Clare Michaels takes a spring break trip to Florida with three other girls, including her best friend, Lee. She´s hoping for adventure and a few stories to share back at school. Instead, a string of bad choices leads to a horrific encounter, and Lee offers herself up so that Clare can escape. In the weeks and months that follow that fateful incident, Lee, once so dynamic and ambitious, flounders and withdraws. Clare was the only person to whom she´d ever confided about her troubled past. For Clare, that role felt like an honor - until it became a burden. Now she´s trying to make amends for her momentary selfishness by taking care of Lee. Years pass, circumstances change, and contact between Clare and Lee ebbs and flows, but the events of that night in Florida are impossible to escape. They keep dragging Clare back, forcing her to confront what really happened and her part in it.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Laurel Lefkow.
