Hughes, the private diaries, memos and letters by Richard Hack( Recording )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Howard Hughes would have this book ... because he never wanted the truth to be told. Richard Hack has for the first time written the whole story in a fascinating and compelling manner. Truth in this instance is surely stranger than fiction ... As the man who knew Hughes best for seventeen years and to whom he referred publicly as his alter-ego, I now believe that the entire story has finally been told. "A remarkable book. The veil of secrecy has finally been lifted--this is the riveting inside story of one of the world's most enigmatic men. "Masterfully written ... certainly the ultimate book on the eccentric billionaire ... it answers virtually every question and finally tells what really happened behind the most intricate financial facade America has ever known ... from the love affairs to the political payoff it's all here ... I found every page riveting."

Delivered from distraction : [getting the most out of life with attention deficit disorder] by Edward M Hallowell( )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1994, Driven to Distraction sparked a revolution in our understanding of attention deficit disorder. In this new book, Drs. Edward M. Hallowell and John J. Ratey build on the breakthroughs of Driven to Distraction to offer a comprehensive and entirely up-to-date guide to living a successful life with ADD. As Hallowell and Ratey point out, "attention deficit disorder" is a highly misleading description of an intriguing kind of mind. Original, charismatic, energetic, often brilliant, people with ADD have extraordinary talents and gifts embedded in their highly charged but easily distracted minds. Tailored expressly to ADD learning styles and attention spans, Delivered from Distraction provides accessible, engaging discussions of every aspect of the condition, from diagnosis to finding the proper treatment regime. ADD is a trait, a way of living in the world. It only becomes a disorder when it impairs your life. Featuring gripping profiles of patients with ADD who have triumphed, Delivered from Distraction is a wise, loving guide to releasing the positive energy that all people with ADD hold inside

Scurvy : how a surgeon, a mariner, and a gentleman solved the greatest medical mystery of the age of sail by Stephen R Bown( )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A lively recounting of how three determined individuals overcame the constraints of 18th century thinking to solve the greatest medical mystery of their era. The cure for scurvy ranks among the greatest of military successes, yet its impact on history has mostly been ignored. Stephen Bown, in this engaging and often gripping book, searches back to the earliest recorded appearance of scurvy in the 16th century, to the 18th century, when the disease was at its gum-shred, bone-snapping worst, to the early 19th century, when the preventative was finally put into service. Bown introduces us, among others, to James Lind, navy surgeon and medical detective, whose research on the disease spawned the implementation of the cure; Captain James Cook, who successfully avoided scurvy on his epic voyages; and Gilbert Blane, whose social status and charisma won over the British Navy and saved England. Scurvy is a medical detective story for the ages, a fascinating and often maddening examination of how a preventative for scurvy, the "scourge of the seas", was found, ignored, and finally implemented to the great benefit of all seafaring nations
