The APhA Complete Review for Pharmacy, 12th Edition
Peter A. Chyka, Andrea S. Franks, J. Aubrey Waddell, Bradley A. Boucher
The NAPLEX (North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination is the standard licensing exam that all U.S. pharmacy students must pass to practice pharmacy. It’s an arduous 6-hour, 250-question exam that tests a daunting range of knowledge. In 2016 the pass rate fell to 86%. Preparing for the NAPLEX by reviewing all the material from each pharmacy school course would be overwhelming. A far better approach would be to study only the information most relevant to the exam and to rehearse with lots of practice exam questions, and that’s what The APhA Complete Review for Pharmacy contains.

The PK Cookbook
Go Paleo-Ketogenic and Get the Best of Both Worlds
Sarah Myhill, Craig Robinson
Dr Sarah Myhill has been helping sufferers from debilitating chronic conditions for over 30 years with an approach that combines all the benefits of current scientific knowledge and medical testing and treatments with an expanding appreciation of the importance of nutrition and lifestyle. Her book with Craig Robinson, Prevent and Cure Diabetes, saw her arrive at the conclusion that the diet we should ALL be eating is one that combines Paleo principles (eating pre-agricultural, seasonal foods) with Ketogenic ones (fuel the body with fats and fibre, not with carbs). That book tells us WHY; now in this down-to-earth, highly practical cookbook, Sarah and Craig tell us HOW.
The 'D' Word
Mary Jordan, Dr. Noel Collins
The 'D' Word starts with the premise that Dementia is here to stay - a simple cure is not going to be found that will make it a condition of the past. As such it is a social problem, not a medical one. We have to learn to live with Dementia and, as it will affect nearly all of us either as carers or through eventually having the condition, become our own experts rather than relying on the inadequate response from medicine. The authors, based on their long experience of working together to support people affected by dementia, show us how to understand the biological reality of dementia (the brain is wasting away and no amount of memory medicine can restore what is gone); readjust our thinking about the condition so that we can accept rather than fear it; and gain the expertise to manage the problems we have now.
