This is the unforgettable story about a family with a secret at its core, from Top Ten bestseller Lisa Jewell, author of Ralph's Party, The Making of Us and Before I Met You.
Picture a picture-book cottage in a village. A family in a sun-drenched kitchen filled with love and laughter. Picture an Easter weekend when tragedy strikes - so unexpected, so devastating that no one can talk about it. The years pass the children become adults. Gradually they lose touch as the secret between them tears them apart. And then something happens that calls them back to the house they grew up in - and to what really happened that Easter weekend all those years ago.
What will medicine be like a decade from now? Already laparoscopic surgery is making under the knife scars look quaint and old fashioned. A doctor in New York can remove a gall bladder in a patient in London via computer. Experts agree that we are entering the Golden Age of Medicine, and our everyday experience of being ill and getting better may seem more like science fiction than an average trip to the doctor. Bill Hanson, chief of the trauma unit at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center and an inventor of medical technology, offers true-life and intensely intimate stories about the way biotechnology is changing people's lives. * An electronic nose that detects infection, such as pneumonia, based on a person's breath * Robots with appendages that can feel their way around tissue, which will replace surgeons in operating room * Computer health wizards that will prescribe you medicine through your home computer * Computerized psychotherapists dispensing advice about emotional problems * Telehealth software that serves as a monitoring nurse for difficult to manage chronic illnesses such as diabetes.
* Wheelchairs operated by reading electrical brainwaves for patients with severe neurological deterioration. William Hanson describes the human genius that arrived at these amazing discoveries, and how innovators are working to take these feats to an even more technologically advanced level. And more importantly, he discusses what the human experience will be and how we can prepare ourselves for the moral and ethical challenges that these awesome changes will bring. This riveting and startling account will make us revise our expectations of our own mortality.
'The must-read biography of the year.' Evening Standard'He writes with gusto...the result is a book that is never boring, genuinely clever ...this book sizzles.' The Times'The point of the Churchill Factor is that one man can make all the difference.'On the eve of the fiftieth anniversary of Winston Churchill's death, and written in conjunction with the Churchill Estate, Boris Johnson explores what makes up the 'Churchill Factor' - the singular brilliance of one of the most important leaders of the twentieth century. Taking on the myths and misconceptions along with the outsized reality, he portrays - with characteristic wit and passion - a man of multiple contradictions, contagious bravery, breath-taking eloquence, matchless strategizing, and deep humanity.Fearless on the battlefield, Churchill had to be ordered by the King to stay out of action on D-Day he embraced large-scale strategic bombing, yet hated the destruction of war and scorned politicians who had not experienced its horrors. He was a celebrated journalist, a great orator and won the Nobel Prize for Literature.
He was famous for his ability to combine wining and dining with many late nights of crucial wartime decision-making.
His open-mindedness made him a pioneer in health care, education, and social welfare, though he remained incorrigibly politically incorrect. Most of all, as Boris Johnson says, 'Churchill is the resounding human rebuttal to all who think history is the story of vast and impersonal economic forces'. The Churchill Factor is a book to be enjoyed not only by anyone interested in history: it is essential reading for anyone who wants to know what makes a great leader.
