From Publishers Weekly
Not only is heart disease the number one cause of death in America, it's also a problem that can frequently be prevented. Tragically, however, one of its first symptoms is often sudden, unexpected death from a heart attack. In his ninth book (after The Breast Health Cookbook; The Prostate Cancer Protection Plan; etc.), Arnot aims to give readers the tools to ensure they're not among the patients who "fall through the cracks." He outlines his seven steps in straightforward chapters on detecting warning signs, determining risk, taking medication and more. Incorporating the sometimes contradictory opinions of various medical experts, he puts the responsibility of making an informed decision into readers' hands, explaining that physicians may miss telltale signs and hospitals may not be ready to deal with a...

The Poems and Songs of Robert Burns

Audio Cassette - Abridged
·
 
From School Library Journal
Grade 7 Up-Scottish actor John Cairney gives voice to 20 of the poet's works, some standards and others slightly more obscure. Cairney portrayed Burns in a solo stage show from 1965 to 1981. He not only performs on this cassette, but also selected and arranged the poems and musical elements. Lilting tunes often introduce a piece, and the familiar melody of "Auld Lang Syne" plays throughout that reading. "Tam o'Shanter," "To a Mouse," "To a Louse," and "A Red, Red Rose" are here, as well as the less well known "Mary Morison," "Of a' the Airts," and "The Banks of Doon." Language arts instructors who teach Burns and want to convey a sense of what he intended will especially appreciate this collection and Cairney's performance. The dramatic and occasional special effects will help to capture students'...

Book Review
Elizabeth, a beautiful princess, lives in a castle and wears fancy clothes. Just when she is about to marry Prince Ronald, a dragon smashes her castle, burns her clothes with his fiery breath, and prince-naps her dear Ronald. Undaunted and presumably unclad, she dons a large paper bag and sets off to find the dragon and her cherished prince. Once she's tracked down the rascally reptile, she flatters him into performing all sorts of dragonly stunts that eventually exhaust him, allowing her to rescue Prince Ronald. But what does Prince Not-So-Charming say when he sees her? "You smell like ashes, your hair is all tangled and you are wearing a dirty old paper bag. Come back when you are dressed like a real princess." (At least he has the courtesy not to mention that the princess's crown resembles a dying sea...

Being Catholic, Being American

Hardcover

From Publishers Weekly
The history of the University of Notre Dame from 1842 to 1934 mirrors in many ways the history of American Catholicism during those years. For reasons having to do more with football than religion, most Americans think first of Notre Dame when they think of Catholic universities. Burns, a former Notre Dame faculty member and longtime columnist for U.S. Catholic magazine, traces the emergence of American Catholics from a minority status in society to the elevation of Notre Dame as a great American university. He argues that having one of the most successful college football teams in history helped establish Notre Dame's popularity and reputation in American culture and history. Burns keeps the reader entranced with a narrative filled with lively characters and events. Here we meet Notre Dame founder Reverend...

Lose weight, get in shape, understand your emotions, and feel good about yourself. These are the interrelated goals of Get with the Program by Bob Greene, best known as Oprah's personal trainer and coauthor of Make the Connection.

Taking post-9/11 conspiracy theories that blamed the attacks on Zionist agents as the seed for this unusual thriller, Ferrigno (The Wake-Up) posits a nuclear terrorist onslaught in 2015 on New York City, Washington, D.C., and Mecca that has all the earmarks of a Mossad operation. The blue states are moved by these horrors to convert to Islam, while the red states break away from the Islamic Republic, forming a Christian republic in the South. By 2040, three major parties struggle for control in the Islamic Republic: the moderate State Security forces, under Redbeard; the Black Robes, a fundamentalist religious police force; and the top-secret Assassins, under the Old One. When Sarah Dougan, Redbeard's niece and a respected historian, reinvestigates the 2015 attack for a new book, The Zionist Betrayal?, the Old...
