4. A is for Arsenic: The Poisons of Agatha Christie - Kathryn Harkup

Largeprint (paperback) Our price: 19.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

Agatha Christie used poison to kill her characters more often than any other murder method, with the poison itself being a central part of the novel, and her choice of deadly substances was far from random; the chemical and physiological characteristics of each poison provide vital clues to discovery of the murderer. Christie demonstrated her extensive chemical knowledge in many of her novels, but this is rarely appreciated by the reader. A is for Arsenic looks at why certain chemicals kill, how they interact with the body, and the feasibility of obtaining, administering and detecting these poisons, both at the time the novel was written and today

Without trust, our lives would be impossible. Every relationship we have, whatever its nature, depends on trust for its successful continuance. Sometimes life itself depends on it. But how do we trust other people? What happens to us when we engage in acts of trust? And what happens to us when our trust is betrayed?Mary Farrell examines issues of trust through a series of stories: true stories about exceptional people who have engaged in extraordinary acts of trust. In doing so, she sheds light on the nature of our relationships and how they operate. The stories include that of the Native American woman who runs a wolf sanctuary and lives and works with wild animals; the circus couple who need absolute trust to perform a ''William Tell'' act on each other; the story of horse-whisperer Franklin Levinson; the story of bestselling author Susan Winter, who has studied relationships between older women and younger men; and the story of actor Michael Hurst (Iolaus in the television series Hercules). Psychotherapist Mary Farrell understands that trust is an essential part of all our lives. Through a wide array of examples from the theatre and television, including shows like Hercules and The Sopranos, she illustrates and analyses trust in action. Using the principles and techniques of psychotherapy, she shows us how to relate such acts of trust to our own lives. Farrell also looks at the negative sides of trust, including deceit, betrayal and disbelief. This is a truly unique book that will enlighten and delight anyone who is seeking a deeper understanding of their relationships.

9. Admissions: A Life in Brain Surgery - Henry Marsh

Largeprint (paperback) Our price: 19.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

Sensational...Marsh is curmudgeonly, unflinching, clinical, competitive, often contemptuous and consistently curious. In Admissions he scrubs up just as well the second time around and continues to revel in his joyous candour (THE SUNDAY TIMES)

Superb...a eulogy to surgery and a study of living. I didn't want this book to end. Henry Marsh is part of a growing canon of superb modern medical writers...whose storytelling and prose are transportative...His timing is also impeccable...His sentences, too, feel like works of the finest craftmanship, made with the love that goes into both his woodwork and surgery (Jessamy Calkin DAILY TELEGRAPH)

Marsh is, given his profession, a surprisingly emotional man, likably so. His account of his younger self that threads through this compulsive book is a Bildungsroman in itself. He is also a fine writer and storyteller, and a nuanced observer (Tim Adams OBSERVER)

Do No Harm, candid and tender, was one of the most powerful books written by a doctor...His follow-up book does not disappoint. The maverick is back, even more blunt and irascible, with tales of thrilling, high-wire operations at medicine's unconquered frontier, woven through with personal memoir...Marsh in full spate is quite magnificent...a master of tar-black, deadpan humour (Melanie Reid THE TIMES)
