Explores the history of SSRIs in the United States and the surrounding controversies. When Prozac was released in the late 1980s, Healy was among the psychiatrists who prescribed it. But he soon observed that some of his patients became agitated and even attempted suicide. Could the new wonder drug actually be making patients worse? Draws on his own research and expertise to demonstrate the potential hazards. He intersperses case histories with insider accounts of the research leading to the development and approval of SSRIs as a treatment for depression. Clearly demonstrates that the problems go much deeper than a side-effect of a particular drug. The pharmaceutical industry tells us that SSRIs safely treat depression, anxiety, and a host of other mental problems. But the cure may be worse than the disease. ISBN/ASIN: 0814736971.

In a spirit of daring and creative opposition, the brothers issued quality books on a massive scale and at cheap prices - and created a revolution in publishing. Yet the 1942 death of John Lane brought the troika to a halt. Allen, the enthusiastic frontman who relied on his younger brothers to drive Penguin's success, became more erratic and suspicious over time. Ultimately, he forced Richard out of the company he had co-founded and built. Explores the little known story of Richard Lane - the heart and backbone of Penguin, and its strongest influence.

Shoshana Zubof, social psychologist and emeritus professor Harvard Business School, has extensively studied how tech companies such as Google are gradually taking control of data and information, and making money out of it, to the detriment of democracy, society, politics and business. She has coined the term 'surveillance capitalism' for this phenomenon. This is the main challenge posed by our digital future. The heady optimism of the early days of the internet are gone. Technologies that were meant to liberate us have deepened inequality and stoked divisions. Tech companies gather our information online and sell it to the highest bidder, whether government or retailer. Profits now depend not only on predicting our behaviour but also modifying it. This book is a deeply-reasoned examination of the threat of unprecedented power free from democratic oversight. The book also shows how we can protect ourselves and our communities and ensure we are the masters of the digital rather than its slaves. ISBN/ASIN: 9781781256855. Our Book No: 18120. $20 AUD.
