A Better Way
The surprising path to a complete life
Peter E. Dawson, Gregg Lewis
For nearly 60 years dentists from around the world have traveled to St. Petersburg, Florida to attend Peter Dawson’s seminars on “The Concept of Complete Dentistry.™” He’s personally taught more than 50,000 of those practitioners. In the process he literally redefined dentistry and its standard of care by challenging his professional peers to raise their sites beyond “usual and customary” practices, to become true physicians of the masticatory system. Yet why would anyone decide to read a book about a dentist, no matter how accomplished? Perhaps, because Pete Dawson is more than a dentist. A plethora of achievements plus a wealth of unusual life experiences have provided him great insight and wisdom. Yet this is not an advice book. It’s an inspiring story of persistence—from a man who overcame hardship, professional ridicule and injustice, and who, at the age of 88, still speaks and lectures to thousands of dentists a year.

The Infection Game
Life is an arms race
Sarah Myhill, Craig Robinson
Dr Myhill, ably supported by Craig Robinson, writes: `It is generally believed that infection is a killer of the past. Wrong - research now shows that our big killers, from cancers and coronaries to dementia and diabetes are largely infection-driven. Indeed, it is difficult to find a pathology that does not have an infectious associate. Cheap and effective defences are within the grasp of all of us. We have all the weapons we need to win the arms race. Our new book provides the intellectual imperatives and practical know-how to conquer the established, prevent the potential and postpone the inevitable. Just do it!' The Infection Game shows us how we can maximise our defences and martial our weapons so that we are ready to defeat the infectious organisms we encounter every day and in epidemic situations.
