Explanation of the Book:

It seemed like an easy answer. If a child was diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder—ADHD—give him Ritalin and all would be better. The answer—and the condition—turned out not to be that easy. Recreational Ritalin: The Not-So-Smart Drug provides an overview of ADHD and the drug most often prescribed to treat the condition. This book provides you with a description of other drugs like Ritalin and their effects, good and bad. You will also learn about ADHD and the controversy surrounding its diagnosis and treatment. But Ritalin and other drugs like it have moved out of the classroom and away from their legitimate uses in treating a medical condition. College students and young professionals are now using the drugs to gain that "extra edge" to achieve success. Recreational Ritalin: The Not-So-Smart Drug tells their stories as well. You will also discover how Ritalin abuse is being effectively treated.

More than 1 in 7 American children get diagnosed with ADHD - three times what experts have said is appropriate - meaning that millions of kids are misdiagnosed and taking medications such as Adderall or Concerta for a psychiatric condition they probably do not have.

In fact, they say that adults and the rest of the world should embrace ADHD and that its medications will transform their lives.

Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

In this groundbreaking and controversial book, behavioral neurologist Dr. Richard Saul draws on five decades of experience treating thousands of patients labeled with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder—one of the fastest growing and widely diagnosed conditions today—to argue that ADHD is actually a cluster of symptoms stemming from over 20 other conditions and disorders. According to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 6.4 million children between the ages of four and seventeen have been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. While many skeptics believe that ADHD is a fabrication of drug companies and the medical establishment, the symptoms of attention-deficit and hyperactivity are all too real for millions of individuals who often cannot function without treatment. If ADHD does not exist, then what is causing these debilitating symptoms? Over the course of half a century, physician Richard Saul has worked with thousands of patients demonstrating symptoms of ADHD. Based on his experience, he offers a shocking conclusion: ADHD is not a condition on its own, but rather a symptom complex caused by over twenty separate conditions—from poor eyesight and giftedness to bipolar disorder and depression—each requiring its own specific treatment. Drawing on in-depth scientific research and real-life stories from his numerous patients, ADHD Does not Exist synthesizes Dr. Saul's findings, and offers and clear advice for everyone seeking answers.

Explanation of the Book:

Seeing things that aren't really there, thinking thoughts you would never normally have thought— hallucinogenic drugs work on the body by altering the way a person thinks, feels, or experiences reality. Some of these drugs are found in nature, while others are created in laboratories. All of them can have dangerous short-term and long-term effects. Hallucinogens: Unreal Visions tells the long history of these drugs. Because of the effects hallucinogens have on perceptions, people have often believed these drugs were showing them deeper meanings about the world or helping them connect with gods or their own unconscious minds. Hallucinogens, however, can be extremely dangerous. While legitimate medical or therapeutic uses may be found for these drugs in the future, taking them with friends or alone could be extremely dangerous or even deadly. This book will tell you more.

Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Breakthroughs in genetics present us with a promise and a predicament. The promise is that we will soon be able to treat and prevent a host of debilitating diseases. The predicament is that our newfound genetic knowledge may enable us to manipulate our nature—to enhance our genetic traits and those of our children. Although most people find at least some forms of genetic engineering disquieting, it is not easy to articulate why. What is wrong with re-engineering our nature? The Case against Perfection explores these and other moral quandaries connected with the quest to perfect ourselves and our children. Michael Sandel argues that the pursuit of perfection is flawed for reasons that go beyond safety and fairness. The drive to enhance human nature through genetic technologies is objectionable because it represents a bid for mastery and dominion that fails to appreciate the gifted character of human powers and achievements. Carrying us beyond familiar terms of political discourse, this book contends that the genetic revolution will change the way philosophers discuss ethics and will force spiritual questions back onto the political agenda. In order to grapple with the ethics of enhancement, we need to confront questions largely lost from view in the modern world. Since these questions verge on theology, modern philosophers and political theorists tend to shrink from them. But our new powers of biotechnology make these questions unavoidable. Addressing them is the task of this book, by one of America’s preeminent moral and political thinkers.
