Philadelphia writer Lisa Scottoline's latest book!

Courting Trouble
Courting Trouble

By Lisa Scottoline

My wife, Anita, and I recently had the pleasure of meeting and talking with Lisa Scottoline at the local Barnes and Noble. We have read all of her books to date and enjoyed them all. Lisa is a delightful, beautiful young woman, full of ideas and energy. She truly appreciates her readers and is generous with her time, her "South Philly" warmth and her hugs!

The publisher's note about her latest book follows:
Anne Murphy, the smart, gorgeous, red-headed rookie at an all-female Philadelphia law firm, escapes the city for the Fourth of July weekend to prepare for a high-profile trial. The next day, newspaper headlines scream "Lawyer Murdered," and Anne sees her own photograph staring back at her.
Playing dead to stay alive, she turns to her colleagues for help. It will take all of Anne's boldness and ingenuity -- plus a pair of red-satin hot pants -- to track down the killer before it's too late..

The Alternative Medicine Sourcebook
A Realistic Evaluation of Alternative Healing Methods

Alternative Medicine Ratings Guide: A Expert Rates the Best Treatments and for over 90 Conditions
Alternative Medicine Ratings Guide: A Expert Rates the Best Treatments and for over 90 Conditions

by Steven Bratman

Bratman is trained in both conventional medicine and several alternative methods, and from the outset he says, "Alternative medicine is full of sloppy thinking,nonsense, faddishness and commercialism. You should be skeptical." But he also avers that alternative medicine "can make a tremendous contribution to the search for health and healing." Some, he concludes, are relatively ineffective -- herbology, for instance. Bratman finds that "herbs used according to raditional indications seem to fail fairly frequently." But he notes that there are exceptions, such as the use of goldenseal for treating minor skin infections. Sections on finding legitimate practitioners and recommendations of alternative and conventional therapies, listed by llness, are also included.

Everything You Always Wanted to Ask Your Gynecologist
Everything You Always Wanted to Ask Your Gynecologist

by Scott Thornton, M.D.
and Kathleen Schramm, M.D.

Since we are both on the Holy Redeemer Hospital staff and our offices were in the same Medical Office Building in the past, I know Doctor Thornton personally, think highly of him, and have referred both patients and family to him for gynecologic care.
This book is for any woman who has ever been too embarrassed to ask her gynecologist a question because it might seem trivial, or who has forgotten to ask in the rush of being examined, or who has emerged frustrated because she couldn't understand the doctor's hurried explanation.
In simple, direct language, a respected gynecologist, writing with his wife, a psychiatrist, addresses more than two hundred of the questions women most commonly ask their doctors - or wish they could ask: Why do I flood? What's the safest form of birth control? Why don't I get an orgasm? What's the best time in my cycle for conception? Why do I keep getting yeast infections? Why do I have such bad cramps? What can I do to prevent breast cancer? What can I do about these hot flashes? Are Pap smears reliable?
Sixteen chapters cover every aspect of gynecologic care, from the menstrual cycle to contraception and pregnancy through menopause. The doctors also tell you all you need to know to cope with such problems as PMS, complications of early pregnancy, endometriosis, sexual dysfunction, yeast and bladder infections, sexually transmitted diseases, and cancer. The book also includes a chapter on the breast.
R. Scott Thornton, M.D., has a private practice in gynecology associated with Holy Redeemer Hospital in Meadowbrook, Pennsylvania. He also teaches in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences at Temple University and conducts health seminars for women.
Kathleen Schramm. M.D., is a psychiatrist and cofounder of Southampton Psychiatric Associates in the Philadelphia area.

The Terrible Hours
The Terrible Hours

On the eve of World War II, the Squalus, America's newest submarine, plunged into the North Atlantic. Miraculously, thirty-three crew members still survived. While their loved ones waited in unbearable tension on shore, their ultimate fate would depend upon one man, U.S. Navy officer Charles "Swede" Momsen; an extraordinary combination of visionary, scientist, and man of action. In this thrilling true narrative, prize-winning author Peter Maas brings us in the vivid detail a moment-by-moment account of the disaster and the man at its center. Could he actually pluck those men from a watery grave? Or had all his pioneering work been in vain?
