Food—We all need it and we all want it. We want it delicious, and ideally not toxic. But how the heck do we make sense of the choices paraded before us, when the so-called experts can’t agree and the guidelines change from day to day? Recommendations based on simple, sterile laboratory analysis of one nutrient, one effect, have no place in the pantheon of science… nor the pantry of any respectable chef. Michael S. Fenster, MD, interventional cardiologist, and professional chef, separates fact from fiction and wheat from chaff. Invoking the power of the total Food Experience that every chef and food lover understands, he helps diners focus on what they’re eating in a powerful explosion of ceremony and substance. As the Food Shaman, Chef Dr. Mike combines modern knowledge from a variety of disciplines with the ancient ritual of the first chefs and healers: the shaman. The result is a quantum leap in understanding the power of the Food Experience, and why it must nurture our soul through delightful tastes and textures beyond basic nutrition.

Robert Neil Butler (1927–2010) was a scholar, psychiatrist, and Pulitzer Prize–winning author who revolutionized the way the world thinks about aging and the elderly. One of the first psychiatrists to engage with older men and women outside of institutional settings, Butler coined the term "ageism" to draw attention to discrimination against older adults and spent a lifetime working to improve their status, medical treatment, and care. Early in his career, Butler seized on the positive features of late-life development—aspects he documented in his pathbreaking research on "healthy aging" at the National Institutes of Health and in private practice. He set the nation's age-based health care agenda and research priorities as founding director of the National Institute on Aging and by creating the first interprofessional, interdisciplinary department of geriatrics at New York City's Mount Sinai Hospital. In the final two decades of his career, Butler created a global alliance of scientists, educators, practitioners, politicians, journalists, and advocates through the International Longevity Center. A scholar who knew Butler personally and professionally, W. Andrew Achenbaum follows this pioneer's significant contributions to the concept of healthy aging and the notion that aging is not synonymous with physical and mental decline. Emphasizing the progressive aspects of Butler's approach and insight, Achenbaum affirms the ongoing relevance of his work to gerontology, geriatrics, medicine, social work, and related fields.
Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the remote Red Lake area in northwestern Ontario, The White Ojibway Medicine Man and Other Stories is an intriguing collection of short stories based on the trials and trepidations of a young doctor treating the Ojibway from 1955 to 1963. When Joe Weinstein first saw the ad for a temporary medical position in northwestern Ontario, he had no idea that one month would stretch into the most intense and challenging seven years of his life. Thrust into a world very different from his own, Joe not only had to acclimate himself to the rugged land, but to the people, as well. Joe artfully relates his encounters with the myths and legends of the Ojibway tribes living on reservations scattered throughout the area, their conflicts with the world of the white man, and how he succeeded in becoming their medicine man. Accompanied by vivid imagery, Joe also reveals the fascinating stories behind the lumberjacks, bush pilots, missionaries, prospectors, and geologists who found their way to this remote area for one reason or another. Filled with wit and wisdom, The White Ojibway Medicine Man and Other Stories is a heartfelt tribute to the people of Red Lake. But it also shows the courage of one man to leave the familiar, enter the unknown, and make a remarkable difference in the lives of his patients.
