by Brian Burrell, Allan Ropper (Goodreads Author)
"Tell the doctor where it hurts." It sounds simple enough, unless the problem affects the very organ that produces awareness and generates speech. What is it like to try to heal the body when the mind is under attack? In this book, Dr. Allan Ropper and Brian Burrell take the reader behind the scenes at Harvard Medical School’s neurology unit to show how a seasoned diagnostician faces down bizarre, life-altering afflictions. Like Alice in Wonderland, Dr. Ropper inhabits a world where absurdities abound:
• A figure skater whose body has become a ticking time-bomb
• A salesman who drives around and around a traffic rotary, unable to get off
• A college quarterback who can’t stop calling the same play
• A child molester who, after falling on the ice, is left with a brain that is very much dead inside a body that is very much alive
• A mother of two young girls, diagnosed with ALS, who has to decide whether a life locked inside her own head is worth living
How does one begin to treat such cases, to counsel people whose lives may be changed forever? How does one train the next generation of clinicians to deal with the moral and medical aspects of brain disease? Dr. Ropper and his colleague answer these questions by taking the reader into a rarified world where lives and minds hang in the balance.

Dr. Kelly Elizabeth York--a celebrity astrologer and psychologist with a devoted following--finds herself in the terrifying position of helping the police and FBI determine the identity of a serial killer--who just may be targeting her. No matter how careful she is, Kelly knows she will have to confront darkness, an energy so black it will challenge everything she believes in.
Until now, Kelly has lived a comfortable, fulfilling life in her Upper West Side brownstone. Yet when four beautiful young women are found murdered, astrological signs carved into their thighs, she is pulled into a mystery whose clues may lead back to an astrological reading gone terribly awry.
Horoscope keeps us on the edge of our seats while it draws us into the lives of people whose fortunes seem inextricably linked. [close]
