1. What Not to Wear to a Murder Trial: and Other Tips Tragedy Taught Me


Top 10 Best Books to Read in Health Law - August 2021

With a Foreword by Rob O'Neill, and highly endorsed by other amazing Americans like Taya Kyle and Bedros Keuilian, this book lives up to its powerful backing. Control is an illusion. That lesson is on the house- you don’t even have to buy the book for it. Because more than book sales I care about sharing the lessons I have lived and learned. The key is, knowing what you can and cannot control, and then learning how to maximize that power. The other side of that key is learning how to turn things you are powerless to control into opportunities instead of excuses. Friend, I’ve been to hell and back to learn the lessons in this book. There are few humiliations I have not suffered, dignities I have not surrendered, no pride I have not allowed to damage me, and no betrayal I have not allowed to drop me. All of that pretty much sucked for me, but it also led me to where I am today. It even brought moments of stunning beauty, joy, and gratitude only those who’ve lived in darkness, pain, and hopelessness can appreciate. If you feel trapped under the weight of pain, grief, trauma, and hopelessness, there is something in this book that will help you. If you are easily offended, commit to overcoming that before you read this book, or just put it down and step away - you’re not ready for me yet. The lessons in here aren’t all mine, by the way. I’m blessed to know hundreds of amazing people, and to have interviewed many of those people. Some of their lessons are in this book, too. They believe in me, and I believe in you too. Let’s do this. Barb’s path began in 2005 when her husband, Lt Louis Allen, was killed in Iraq. Lou and the commanding officer were murdered by a fellow soldier. That soldier was ultimately acquitted after a lengthy judicial process, in spite of his submission of a guilty plea. It was the pain of her loss and the unjustness of the trial that fueled Barbara to write her first book, Front Toward Enemy. She found inspiration for her second book, How to Woo a Widow, when she opened herself up to love again. Together with her fiance, Barb created American Snippets.

2. Toxic Legacy: How the Weedkiller Glyphosate Is Destroying Our Health and the Environment


Top 10 Best Books to Read in Health Law - August 2021

" Toxic Legacy  will stand shoulder to shoulder with Rachel Carson’s  Silent Spring . This is unquestionably, one of the most important books of our time."―David Perlmutter, MD, #1 New York Times bestselling author of  Grain Brain and  Brain Wash "Urgent and eye-opening, the book serves as a loud-and-clear alarm."― The Boston Globe "A game-changer that we would be foolish to ignore."― Kirkus Reviews (starred) From an MIT scientist, mounting evidence that the active ingredient in the world’s most commonly used weedkiller is contributing to skyrocketing rates of chronic disease Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Roundup, the most commonly used weedkiller in the world. Nearly 300 million pounds of glyphosate-based herbicide are sprayed on farms―and food―every year.  Agrochemical companies claim that glyphosate is safe for humans, animals, and the environment. But emerging scientific research on glyphosate’s deadly disruption of the gut microbiome, its crippling effect on protein synthesis, and its impact on the body’s ability to use and transport sulfur―not to mention several landmark legal cases― tells a very different story. In Toxic Legacy , senior research scientist Stephanie Seneff, PhD, delivers compelling evidence based on countless published, peer-reviewed studies―all in frank, illuminating, and always accessible language. Throughout Toxic Legacy readers will discover: The uniquely toxic nature of glyphosate How glyphosate disrupts the microbiome, leading to gut dysbiosis, autoimmunity, neurodegeneration, and more Why we’re seeing a rise in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, infertility, depression, and anxiety Glyphosate’s role in soil degeneration, water contamination, and threats to wildlife and biodiversity Important nutritional guidance for conscientious consumers who want to avoid glyphosate-contaminated foods and improve their health As Rachel Carson did with DDT in the 1960’s, Stephanie Seneff sounds the alarm on glyphosate, giving you guidance on simple, powerful changes you can make right now and essential information you need to protect your health, your family’s health, and the planet on which we all depend.

In June 2020, Corona, False Alarm? exploded into the German market, selling 200,000 copies and 75,000 e-books in the first six weeks.

A hacker accesses the medical records of more than 250,000 patients in a hospital-based clinic.

6. Sometimes Brilliant: The Impossible Adventure of a Spiritual Seeker and Visionary Physician Who Helped Conquer the Worst Disease in History


Top 10 Best Books to Read in Health Law - August 2021

When a powerful mystic steps on the hand of a radical young hippie doctor from Detroit, it changes lives and the world. Sometimes Brilliant is the adventures of a philosopher, mystic, hippie, doctor, groundbreaking tech innovator, and key player in the eradication of one of the worst pandemics in human history. His story, of what happens when love, compassion and determination meet the right circumstances to effect positive change, is the kind that keeps hope and the sense of possibility alive. After sitting at the feet of Martin Luther King at the University of Michigan in 1963, Larry Brilliant was swept up into the civil rights movement, marching and protesting across America and Europe. As a radical young doctor he followed the hippie trail from London over the Khyber Pass with his wife Girija, Wavy Gravy and the Hog Farm commune to India. There, he found himself in a Himalayan ashram wondering whether he had stumbled into a cult. Instead, one of India’s greatest spiritual teachers, Neem Karoli Baba, opened Larry’s heart and told him his destiny was to work for the World Health Organization to help eradicate killer smallpox. He would never have believed he would become a key player in eliminating a 10,000-year-old disease that killed more than half a billion people in the 20th century alone. Brilliant’s unlikely trajectory, chronicled in Sometimes Brilliant , has brought him into close proximity with political leaders, spiritual masters, cultural heroes, and titans of technology around the world—from the Grateful Dead to Mikhail Gorbachev, from Ram Dass, the Dalai Lama, Lama Govinda, and Karmapa to Steve Jobs and the founders of Google, Salesforce, Facebook, Microsoft and eBay and Presidents Carter, Clinton, Bush and Obama. Anchored by the engrossing account of the heroic efforts of the extraordinary people involved in smallpox eradication in India, this is a riveting and fascinating epidemiological adventure, an honest reckoning of an entire generation, and a deeply moving spiritual memoir. It is a testament to faith, love, service, and what it means to engage with life’s most important questions in pursuit of a better, more brilliant existence.
