3. Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic
Author: by David Quammen
A masterpiece of science reporting that tracks the animal origins of emerging human diseases, Spillover is fascinating and terrifying a real-life thriller with an outcome that affects us all (Elizabeth Kolbert, author of The Sixth Extinction). In 2020, the novel coronavirus gripped the world in a global pandemic and led to the death of hundreds of thousands.
The source of the previously unknown virus?Bats. This phenomenonin which a new pathogen comes to humans from wildlifeis known as spillover, and it may not be long before it happens again. Prior to the emergence of our latest health crisis, renowned science writer David Quammen was traveling the globe to better understand spillover’s devastating potential.
For five years he followed scientists to a rooftop in Bangladesh, a forest in the Congo, a Chinese rat farm, and a suburban woodland in New York, and through high-biosecurity laboratories. He interviewed survivors and gathered stories of the dead.
He found surprises in the latest research, alarm among public health officials, and deep concern in the eyes of researchers. Spillover delivers the science, the history, the mystery, and the human anguish of disease outbreaks as gripping drama. And it asks questions more urgent now than ever before: From what innocent creature, in what remote landscape, will the Next Big One emerge?

8. The Demon Under the Microscope: From Battlefield Hospitals to Nazi Labs, One Doctor's Heroic Search for the World's First Miracle Drug
Author: by Thomas Hager
In The Demon Under the Microscope, Thomas Hager chronicles the dramatic history of sulfa, the first antibiotic and the drug that shaped modern medicine. The Nazis discovered it. The Allies won the war with it. It conquered diseases, changed laws, and single-handedly launched the era of antibiotics.
Sulfa saved millions of livesamong them those of Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt Jr.but its real effects are even more far reaching. Sulfa changed the way new drugs were developed, approved, and sold; transformed the way doctors treated patients; and ushered in the era of modern medicine.
The very concept that chemicals created in a lab could cure disease revolutionized medicine, taking it from the treatment of symptoms and discomfort to the eradication of the root cause of illness. A strange and colorful story, The Demon Under the Microscope illuminates the vivid characters, corporate strategy, individual idealism, careful planning, lucky breaks, cynicism, heroism, greed, hard work, and the central (though mistaken) idea that brought sulfa to the world.

Unusual shapes and colors make many mushrooms alluring to the eye, while the exotic flavors and textures of edible mushrooms are a gourmet delicacy for the palate. Yet many people never venture beyond the supermarket offerings, fearing that all other mushrooms are poisonous.
With amateur mushroom hunters especially in mind, David Fischer and Alan Bessette have prepared Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America. This field guide presents more than 100 species of the most delicious mushrooms, along with detailed information on how to find, gather, store, and prepare them for the table.
More than 70 savory recipes, ranging from soups and salads to casseroles, canapes, quiches, and even a dessert, are included. Throughout, the authors constantly emphasize the need for correct identification of species for safe eating. Each species is described in detailed, nontechnical language, accompanied by a list of key identifying characteristics that reliably rule out all but the target species.

11. Acquiring Medical Language
Author: by Steven Jones
February 27, 2018
Acquiring Medical Language is language focused. It introduces students to roots with illustrations of body systems and surrounds that information with term blocks that include specific word roots examples containing that root and some interesting facts to make the information more memorable.
This exposes students to all the relevant information (the root its meaning its use) so they see how it relates to the other roots in the context of the body system. Each chapter of AML also is structured around the SOAP framework.
After introducing the student to the important roots relevant to the body system important medical terms are presented to students under the following learning objectives: S (Subjective) Patient History Problems Complaints; O (Objective) Observation and Discovery; A (Assessment) Diagnosis and Pathology; P (Plan) Treatments and Therapies.
The second edition includes the grouping of terms into topic tables within SOAP to help students better understand how terms are related. Examples of topic tables include pathology pharmacology radiology diagnostic procedures etc.
