Making a psychopath : my journey into seven dangerous minds / Freestone, Mark.

"Find out what truly creates and defines a psychopath, from the leading expert who helped to create Killing Eve's Villanelle. Dr. Mark Freestone has worked on some of the most interesting, infamous and disturbing cases of psychopathology in recent years, and now shares his phenomenal insight into the minds of violent criminals. Angela "the Remorseless", a rare female psychopath, casually confessed to murder on national television without a hint of regret. Danny "the Borderline" switched from grandiosity to rage to despair within minutes and killed his defenceless friend without explanation. Tony "the Conman" preferred charm, intimidation and sexual abuse over physical violence and once tried to dupe someone into buying the Eiffel Tower. Jason "the Liar" had a fantasy life that led to vicious murders around Europe and preyed on those who see the good in people. Case by fascinating case, get to know seven of the most dangerous minds that Dr. Freestone has encountered over the last 15 years; these are up close accounts of some of the most psychopathic criminals, and of what can happen if you fall victim to their supreme powers of manipulation. Exploring the many factors that make a psychopath, the complexities and contradictions of their emotions and behaviour, as well as an examination of how the lives of psychopaths develop inside and outside the institutions that are supposed to contain them, Making a Psychopath opens up a window into the world of those who operate in a void of human emotion-and what can be done to control them"--Provided by publisher.

Toxic superfoods : how oxalate overload is making you sick--and how to get better / Norton, Sally K.

"Your spinach smoothie might be making you sick. But there's good news: You can safely reverse your load of oxalates-the chemical toxins produced by many plants-and discover vibrant health. Oxalates most famously cause kidney stones, but they also promote gut problems, chronic pain, joint pain, inflammation, autoimmune conditions, mineral deficiency, sleep disorders, osteoporosis, fatigue, and brain fog. Modern diets, especially ones that are gluten-free, keto, or plant-heavy, tend to be overloaded with oxalates; in fact, health favorites like certain leafy greens, sweet potatoes, turmeric, chia seeds, raspberries, and almonds are especially high in oxalates. After suffering for decades from chronic joint inflammation, back pain, and other problems, health and nutrition educator, Sally Norton, MPH, discovered that the culprits were the oxalates hiding within her healthy, organic vegetarian diet. Now working with clients to safely reverse their oxalate load, she believes that most of us would enjoy better lifelong health with fewer oxalates in our food. Shining light on what might be nothing short of a hidden epidemic, Toxic Superfoods offers solutions where none have existed before, showing how to identify whether you have a problem and offering a timely research-backed plan with recipes and handy food charts, plus a guide to key supplementation for safely reversing your oxalate load. In this groundbreaking guide, Norton reveals that the popular dictum to "eat more plants" can be misleading. Toxic Superfoods gives health-seekers a chance for improved energy, optimum brain performance, graceful aging, and true relief from chronic pain"

And finally : matters of life and death / Marsh, Henry

"From the bestselling neurosurgeon and author of Do No Harm, comes Henry Marsh's And Finally, an unflinching and deeply personal exploration of death, life and neuroscience. As a retired brain surgeon, Henry Marsh thought he understood illness, but he was unprepared for the impact of his diagnosis of advanced cancer. And Finally explores what happens when someone who has spent a lifetime on the frontline of life and death finds himself contemplating what might be his own death sentence. As he navigates the bewildering transition from doctor to patient, he is haunted by past failures and projects yet to be completed, and frustrated by the inconveniences of illness and old age. But he is also more entranced than ever by the mysteries of science and the brain, the beauty of the natural world and his love for his family. Elegiac, candid, luminous and poignant, And Finally is ultimately not so much a book about death, but a book about life and what matters in the end"--Provided by publisher.
