For Tipperary hurling, defeat in the 2012 All-Ireland semi-final was heartbreaking. For Lar Corbett, it was devastating. Then again it has never been a straight road for the three-time All-star and 2010 ‘Player of the Year’. Deemed not good enough to play for Tipperary at minor level, he was nineteen before his unique talent was identified by Nicky English who gave Lar his chance in the All-Ireland winning squad of 2001. But this success was to be followed by years of despair as Tipperary hurling floundered, managers came and went, and a recurring hamstring condition left his career hanging in the balance. The turning point came in 2007 with the arrival of the ‘dream team’ of Liam Sheedy, Eamon O’Shea and Michael Ryan. Encouraged to play more freely and to exploit his explosive pace, Lar soon became one of the most lethal forwards in the game. His three-goal blitz against Kilkenny in the 2010 All Ireland final is the stuff of legend. Following defeat in the 2011 All-Ireland final, Lar stepped away from the game in February 2012 but was ultimately persuaded to return for the championship. Then came the disastrous semi-final where tactical changes kept Lar largely out of the game and provoked unprecedented criticism from media and fans alike. In All In My Head, Lar offers a unique insight into what happened on that day and over the turbulent year leading up to it. This honest and revealing autobiography is a must-read for all fans of the sport of hurling.

Set in Uganda of the sixties with bookends in India and New York, this doctor's story tells of a turbulent political time when colonial Uganda graduated to self-rule. It is also the personal story of an Indian woman living in an independent African country wanting and needing assimilation but regretfully recognizing rejection. It is the story of the exhilaration of living in a country more beautiful than Eden, if sometimes a threatened Eden. But most of all it tells doctoring tales made delicate by seeing them through the heart. It was a time in medicine before evidential imperatives removed the romance. "Dr. Tejani's unique meld of skill and compassion radiates throughout this text which will touch both physician and lay readers alike." --Frank A. Chervenak, M.D., New York Weill Cornell Medical Center. "With clarity, drama, and humor, this book creates a family story, a picture of an African nation in the throes of political upheaval, and an original and illuminating view of medical needs and practices in circumstances that exist today in many parts of the world. The complex harmonies of the song in Dr. Tejani's head will resonate for a wide variety of readers." --Carol Sicherman, Professor Emerita of English, City University of New York, and author of Becoming an African University: Makerere 1922-2000. "Nergesh Tejani is a terrific writer... Her stories are compelling and I think will be of great interest to the general reader and the medical reader alike. Her subject is often exotic, often with international themes and full of pithy observations and wisdom." --Abraham Verghese, M.D., Professor of the Theory and Practice of Medicine, Stanford University Medical Center.

At the age of twenty-four, Paula Kamen's life changed in an instant. While she was putting in her contacts, the left lens disturbed a constellation of nerves behind her eye. The pain was more piercing than that of any other headache she had ever experienced. More than a decade later, she still has a headache-the exact same headache. From surgery to a battery of Botox injections to a dousing of Lithuanian holy water, from a mountain of pharmaceutical products to aromatherapy and even a vibrating hat, All in My Head chronicles the sometimes frightening, usually absurd, and always ineffective remedies Kamen-like so many others-tried in order to relieve the pain. Beleaguered and frustrated by doctors who, frustrated themselves, periodically declared her pain psychosomatic, she came to understand the plight of the millions who suffer chronic pain in its many forms. Full of self-deprecating humor and razorsharp reporting, All in My Head is the remarkable story of patience, acceptance, and perseverance in the face of terrifying pain.

A bunch of ideas are running around in Don Everts's head. Some are permanent residents. Others are visitors, just passing through. When they all get together, some odd things start happening.

In this tour of Don's head, you get a glimpse of how we make sense of ideas and how we decide which ones should live with us. We're introduced to back-door ideas like Pain Is Bad, secret ideas like Lighter Skin Implies Higher Intelligence, and sexy ideas like Shiny Happy Globalization. How do we determine what ideas win out? Which ideas should get to stay, and who should get kicked out of the house?

Relax--Stuff Happens thinks that the Beggar is bent out of shape over nothing. Middle Class Spirituality can't bear the Beggar's intolerance. And Truth Is Relative dismisses the Beggar's absolutism. But regardless of what they think, the other ideas can't escape being confronted by the Beggar. The Dirty Beggar is one of the most unpleasant, uncomfortable folks ever to visit your head. But he sticks around and haunts you. Find out why.
