If Not Now, When? by Primo Levi
If Not Now, When?

Melissa Kinsey, October 12, 2008

In serious times like these, with wars dominating the news, it is important to read serious writers like Primo Levi. His wisdom about war, humanity, good and evil, and the strength of the human spirit transcends time to feed a generation hungry for understanding. As with "Slaughterhouse Five" and "War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning," "If Not Now, When" should be required reading for everyone.

Phantoms in the Brain: Probing the Mysteries of the Human Mind by V S Ramachandran
Phantoms in the Brain: Probing the Mysteries of the Human Mind

Melissa Kinsey, September 17, 2008

If you have friends or family who have suffered any kind of brain damage from accidents or strokes, this book will give you insight into how their experience of life has changed and how you might be more understanding of their behavior. It will also help you understand yourself and the mechanisms of your brain that are beyond your conscious reach. Unbelievable!!!

What I appreciate about this book is its originality. No formulaic story or characters here -- just fresh, honest writing that tells an engaging and compelling story.

Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex by Mary Roach
Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex

Melissa Kinsey, May 27, 2008

Sorry to fall into the author's own trap of overdoing sexual innuendo but I might have enjoyed this book for its unusual and fascinating content were it not for the author's continual, distracting and, yes, disturbing verbal masturbation.

Pathology: The Big Picture by Walter L. Kemp
Pathology: The Big Picture

Melissa Kinsey, March 31, 2008

This is not a book just for medical students. Anyone interested in medicine or disease will find the pictures fascinating and the diagnostic techniques intriguing. A great resource to keep on hand.
