1. The Jungle
Author: by Upton Sinclair
They use everything about the hog except the squeal. Upton Sinclair, The JungleThe Jungle is a 1906 novel written by the American journalist and novelist Upton Sinclair (18781968). Sinclair wrote the novel to portray the lives of immigrants in the United States in Chicago and similar industrialized cities.
Many readers were most concerned with his exposure of health violations and unsanitary practices in the American meatpacking industry during the early 20th century, based on an investigation he did for a socialist newspaper. The book depicts working class poverty, the lack of social supports, harsh and unpleasant living and working conditions, and a hopelessness among many workers.
These elements are contrasted with the deeply rooted corruption of people in power. A review by the writer Jack London called it, “the Uncle Tom’s Cabin of wage slavery.”Sinclair was considered a muckraker, or journalist who exposed corruption in government and business.
He first published the novel in serial form in 1905 in the Socialist newspaper, Appeal to Reason, between February 25, 1905, and November 4, 1905. In 1904, Sinclair had spent seven weeks gathering information while working incognito in the meatpacking plants of the Chicago stockyards for the newspaper.

Author: by Shell Teri
May 12, 2020
Often we are a part of toxic relationships without realizing it. It holds us back, blinds us, and keeps us from growing. Instead of holding our partner accountable, we insist, I need to look after him.But at what cost?
In this seminal work, Codependent No More, the author breaks down, in a most lucid fashion, the cause and effect of being in a codependent relationship, and how to overcome it. Leveraging on the latest scientific and psychological research and longitudinal case studies, the author carefully analyzes how a relationship could degenerate into codependency, what exacerbates it, and what are some of its devastating effects.
With a sympathetic and compassionate word, Codependent No More provides a platform through which we can come to terms with our past, realize the signs of codependency in our relationships, and overcome the lies that we tell ourselves daily. Never before has the self-perpetuating aspect of codependency been more toxic, and now more than ever we need to cultivate self-worth, acceptance and love for ourselves.
4. Waking Up Blind: Lawsuits over Eye Surgery
Author: by MD Mba Harbin
Imagine trusting a doctor-with the best reputation for treating eye disease in the state-to do surgery on your eyes. Now imagine the worst outcomes. Blindness in an eye that you learn, in fact, never needed surgery. And the medical center where you were treated is ignoring the problem.
This is the story of how an eye surgeon-respected, admired, and lauded with the highest praise-became the cause of an array of medial problems for his patients. It is also the story of how one of the nation’s premier medical centers tried to conceal the growing scandal.
The faculty who exposed the problems were punished. Official committees and the university leaders minimized the misconduct. Slowly, lawsuits and publicity brought some to light in bits and pieces. Now the whole story is being told. With the use of court documents, transcripts of tape- recorded conversations, interviews, and personal observation, Dr. Tom Harbin presents this case from the very beginning, uncovering all levels of wrongdoing and secrecy.

8. Joey's Legacy: Seeking Truth And Integrity In Veterinary Medicine Vol. One:
Author: by J L Robb
Even if a pet caregiver proves fraud and deceit to the board, they typically ignore the fact that the bad actor altered medical records to erase the appearance of negligence. Recordkeeping violations by vets, along with practice below the standard of care, are the two most commonly charged violations by the board and the two least deterred by disciplinary action.
The outrageous lack of morals and ethics will continue. The vet boards enact laws to insulate them from legal jeopardy. The veterinary justice system is broken, it’s corrupt and is in massive need of reform. One of the reasons for this book is to educate and enlighten you that vet board exists, the maltreatment of bereaved caregivers is an old story and will sadly continue on and without meaningful, impactful changes I believe this level of injustice will continue.
The vet boards allow serial offenders to continue to offend.

11. Medical Malpractice Litigation: How It Works, Why Tort Reform Hasn’t Helped
Author: by Bernard S. Black
Over the past 50 years, the United States experienced three major medical malpractice (med mal) crises, each marked by dramatic increases in the cost of malpractice liability insurance. These crises fostered a vigorous politicized debate about the causes of the premium spikes, and the impact on access to care and defensive medicine.
State legislatures responded to the premium spikes by enacting damages caps on non-economic, punitive, or total damages and Congress has periodically debated the merits of a federal cap on damages. However, the intense political debate has been marked by a shortage of evidence, as well as misstatements and overclaiming.
The public is confused about answers to some basic questions. What caused the premium spikes? What effect did tort reform actually have? Did tort reform reduce frivolous litigation? Did tort reform actually improve access to health care or reduce defensive medicine?
Both sides in the debate have strong opinions about these matters, but their positions are mostly talking points or are based on anecdotes. This book provides factual answers to these and other questions about the performance of the med mal system.
