What is it like to be the senior surgeon when a young woman is brought to casualty with a life-threatening bleed? What does the fear of cancer do to a person? Is it ever best not to tell the patient everything? Tender is the Scalpel’s Edge draws on Gautam Das’s real-life experiences working in Britain’s busy NHS hospitals – from the plunging depths of a patient dying on the operating table to the euphoria of a life saved by teamwork and skill. Gautam shares his journey from being a medical student fighting his own inner demons to becoming a senior consultant surgeon. Shards of his earlier life in India add to the richness of the narrative. Tales such as the one of the little village boy suffering from bone cancer, observe life with all its contradictions. Tender is the Scalpel’s Edge is written to inform and engross the general reader, as well as those who are curious about life behind the surgeon’s mask. It is a moving collection of true stories from a professional at the frontline of medical care.

The Tender and Playlen families were just two of many trying to carve out calm and fruitful existences in a nice place...But death, evil death, came as powerful opponent: The horror and mystery begins when some of the local residents start to turn up dead. The suspects are varied: the suspicious are all present or past employees of Lakeside Elementary School in Saint Petersburg, a small resort town in west central Florida. The story takes place nine years after the end of one of the deadliest wars in history: World War II. The personal problem for Tim and Todd Tender--fraternal twins--develops when their two best friends, Dink and Link Playlen--identical twins--are kidnapped. Both sets of brothers, precocious to say the least, had recently started their sixth-grade, big-shot year at Lakeside. Because of an extremely incompetent sheriff and his under-sheriff (the only law in the tiny town), the Tenders, with the aid of an Annie Oakley-wannabe teacher, are left to rescue their buddies before they become additional deadly scenes in the community's nightmare...

Nietzsche for the 21st Century

Prof. Peery's first two books emphasized Nietzsche's concerns and contributions as a cultural critic and cultural historian; this time, she concentrates on his major legacy as a philosopher. Taking a tender scalpel to his works, from Ecce Homo and Thus Spake Zarathustra to Beyond Good and Evil and others, she gets inside to the heart of his writing and creates an intellectual dialogue involving everyone from Dionysus and Democritus to Jacob Burckhardt and GWF Hegel. "By dialectical process," she notes, "Nietzsche reasserts Heraclitus' views of the constant tension, or process, always occurring between two opposites, interacting elements, or forces." She also brings in the contributions of R. J. Hollingdale and other Nietzsche analysts to present a range of insights into these nuanced writings whose application to current reality seems perhaps more apt than ever. During his lifetime (1844–1900), the impact of Nietzsche's thinking was dimly perceived, if at all, by most of his contemporaries or readers. Into and during the 20th century, however, the unexpected, the dangers, but mostly the possibilities, of his ideas began to be recognized, explored, and adopted — and resisted. There were exciting creative achievements far beyond Nietzsche's philosophy. These ideas continued to rapidly display their increasingly amazing and untapped resources. Well into the 21st century appreciating, interpreting, and evaluating Nietzsche's thinking appear to be rising — still, or again. And he repays generously every effort, every investment.
