The Hutchinson Dictionary of Scientific Biography (Helicon
This dictionary provides an authoritative and accessible guide to the lives, labours and achievements of the men and women who have shaped the world of science. The in-depth biographies are comprehensive in their coverage of scientists and provide a wealth of information about the great scientists and their idiosyncrasies - for example, the effect of Humphrey Davy's jealousy of his former protege Michael Faraday, the prejudice against women that barred Lize Meitner from working in a major laboratory, and why the astronomer Tycho Brahe wore a false nose. The dictionary covers all of the major scientists and provides readable reviews of each scientist's early life, career, major discoveries and significant publications. This edition has been updated to include over 80 more biographies, focusing particularly on contemporary scientists, such as Stanley Prusiner, the US winner of the 1997 Nobel Prize of Physiology or Medicine. In addition, a glossary of 2000 terms and chronologies of the major sciences place individual's achievements within the context of their own time, while offering an overview of the growth of each particular field of scientific enquiry.

One Boy's Struggle: A Memoir: Surviving Life with Undiagnosed
Bryan takes us back with him to his early days in school when little if anything was known about Attention Deficit Disorder, a neurobiological disorder that would go undiagnosed well into his adult life, thus creating numerous hardships for him, both in school and at home. He strived to do well in school and please his parents, but he couldn't. He was always daydreaming and distracted and had trouble accomplishing his schoolwork. He did not understand why he wasn't like other students. His teacher and peers ridiculed him for his inattentiveness at school, while his parents punished him for failing grades and presumed laziness at home. Bryan writes an emotionally traumatic account of the years of punishment and criticism he received for having undiagnosed ADD as a child, and how he finally got help as an adult. His intuitive sense that he was extremely talented at some things, motivated him to focus on what he could do well. He contemplated the paradox of his impressive talents and his depressing failures often, which ultimately led him to seek help and finally be diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder. Finally receiving a diagnosis of ADD was a life changing enlightenment for him. It has helped him heal the emotional scars of his past and move forward with newfound self-confi...

Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome - A Bibliography and Dictionary for Physicians, Patients, and Genome
In March 2001, the National Institutes of Health issued the following warning: "The number of Web sites offering health-related resources grows every day. Many sites provide valuable information, while others may have information that is unreliable or misleading." Furthermore, because of the rapid increase in Internet-based information, many hours can be wasted searching, selecting, and printing. Since only the smallest fraction of information dealing with Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome is indexed in search engines, such as www.google.com or others, a non-systematic approach to Internet research can be not only time consuming, but also incomplete. This book was created for medical professionals, students, and members of the general public who want to conduct medical research using the most advanced tools available and spending the least amount of time doing so.
