Book Description: Country houses were reliant on an intricate hierarchy of servants, each of whom provided an essential skill. Up and Down Stairs brings to life this hierarchy and shows how large numbers of people lived together under strict segregation and how sometimes this segregation was broken, as with the famous marriage of a squire to his dairymaid at Uppark. Jeremy Musson captures the voices of the servants who ran these vast houses, and made them work. From unpublished memoirs to letters, wages, newspaper articles, he pieces together their daily lives from the Middle Ages through to the twentieth century. The story of domestic servants is inseparable from the story of the country house as an icon of power, civilisation and luxury. This is particularly true with the great estates such as Chatsworth, Hatfield, Burghley and Wilton. Jeremy Musson looks at how these grand houses were, for centuries, admired and imitated around the world.

Book Description: This new edition of a best-selling guide incorporates significant advances in the early and later rehabilitation of neurologically impaired patients. Based on the Bobath concept, Davies' approach to rehabilitation stresses the need to equip the patient for a full life, rather than setting arbitrary goals for functioning in a sheltered environment. Activities are described for correcting abnormal movement patterns and facial difficulties. Ways to regain walking, balance and other normal movement sequences are explained and demonstrated with 750 photographs of patients being treated.

Book Description: The New York Times best-selling sequel to "Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman!" One of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century, Richard Feynman possessed an unquenchable thirst for adventure and an unparalleled ability to tell the stories of his life. "What Do You Care What Other People Think?" is Feynman’s last literary legacy, prepared with his friend and fellow drummer, Ralph Leighton. Among its many tales—some funny, others intensely moving—we meet Feynman’s first wife, Arlene, who taught him of love’s irreducible mystery as she lay dying in a hospital bed while he worked nearby on the atomic bomb at Los Alamos. We are also given a fascinating narrative of the investigation of the space shuttle Challenger’s explosion in 1986, and we relive the moment when Feynman revealed the disaster’s cause by an elegant experiment: dropping a ring of rubber into a glass of cold water and pulling it out, misshapen.

Book Description: "Being diagnosed with manic depression when I was 27 years old changed the course of my life drastically." In 1993, Rosemarie Booler was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at the age of 27 after walking down the street naked carrying a bible. Up and Down the Totem Pole is made up of the trues stories behind some of the events that have shaped Rosemarie into the person she is today. Following her diagnosis, Rosemarie learnt how hostile people became when they didn’t know how to deal with the situation. Friends and family shut her out, she was no longer able to work and as a single mother her life became very difficult, very quickly. Following four close bereavements in 1998, Rosemarie’s 6-year-old daughter was sent to live with her father and her life became void of all meaning. With a combination of grief and depression, she began making notes of life’s trivial ups and downs; enormous amounts of solitude and loneliness, alcohol and drug additions that led to amazing highs and devastating lows and finding faith to guide her through the darkest times. Now a born again Christian, Rosemarie still lives alone on the same street in Market Harborough. In her memoirs, she has put together some of the very amusing adventures her mental health has sent her on, as well as some of the more traumatic experiences she encountered on her journey through life. Up and Down the Totem Pole is a moving story that will resonate with readers who suffer from the same condition or anyone who has experienced substance abuse. It also provides an interesting and eye-opening read for those working in professional health care.
