A mind of its own : a cultural history of the penis by David M Friedman( Book )

41 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whether enemy or ally, demon or god, the source of satisfaction or the root of all earthly troubles, the penis has forced humanity to wrestle with its enduring mysteries. Here, in an enlightening and entertaining cultural study, is a book that gives context to the central role of the penis in Western civilization." "In A Mind of Its Own, David M. Friedman shows that the penis is more than a body part. It is an idea, a conceptual but flesh-and-blood measuring stick of man's place in the world. That men have a penis is a scientific fact; how they think about it, feel about it, and use it is not. It is possible to identify the key moments in Western history when a new idea of the penis addressed the larger mystery of man's relationship with it and changed forever the way that organ was conceived of and put to use. A Mind of Its Own brilliantly distills this complex and largely unexamined story."--Jacket

The immortalists : Charles Lindbergh, Dr. Alexis Carrel, and their daring quest to live forever by David M Friedman( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The true story of how, 75 years ago, two men--one the most famous man in the world, the other thought by many to be the world's smartest--searched for a scientific path to a life without death. In 1927 Lindbergh was the first person to fly non-stop from New York to Paris, a feat most people then thought impossible. In 1930, Lindbergh met Alexis Carrel, then regarded as the most brilliant doctor who ever lived. Lindbergh's sister-in-law suffered from a heart condition that her doctors deemed hopeless, and he didn't understand why they could not simply replace her heart with a mechanical pump. Carrel himself was pursuing similar ideas, and a friendship and scientific partnership began, attempting to build a machine that could keep whole organs alive. They thought that this process could potentially render certain chosen human beings immortal.--From publisher description

Etter eget hode penisens kulturhistorie by David M Friedman( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in Norwegian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

De gamle grekerne tilla den guddommelige krefter, romerske generaler plukket ut soldater etter størrelsen og i kristendommen gikk den over til å bli "djevelens redskap". Penisen har vært med på det meste gjennom historien. I "Etter eget hode" får den sin litterære oppreisning, med humor og historier fra sumernes tid frem til vår egen tid, fra det pene og pyntelige til det mer provokative. Boken passer visstnok for alle som har en penis eller kjenner noen som har det. Har noen illustrasjoner
Bu si xue jia : fei xing ying xion Lin Bai yu ta de mi mi yi xue shi yan by David M Friedman( )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in Chinese and English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

His historic career as an aviator made Charles Lindbergh one of the most famous men of the twentieth century, the subject of best-selling biographies and a hit movie, as well as the inspiration for a dance step'the Lindy Hop'that he himself was too shy to try. But for all the attention lavished on Lindbergh, one story has remained untold until now: his macabre scientific collaboration with Dr. Alexis Carrel. This oddest of couples'one a brilliant Nobel Prize-winning surgeon turned social engineer, the other a failed dirt farmer turned hero of the skies'joined forces in 1930 driven by a shared and secret dream: to conquer death and attain immortality. Part Frankenstein, part The Professor and the Madman, and all true, The Immortalists is the remarkable story of how two men of prodigious achievement and equally large character flaws challenged nature's oldest rule, with consequences'personal, professional, and political'that neither man anticipated
