The medical literature is enormous. It is filled with information that is growing as you are reading this sentence. Having entered the realm of medical school and residency, it is very difficult to gather and master the information that is most critical. After much review of current USMLE Board preparation texts, we have attempted to create a more concise and focused text that addresses the heart of the major issues that are not only commonly tested but also encountered as one is taking care of sick patients. We have put much thought and effort into providing a text that can be used by pre-medical and medical students, as well as physicians and those in all scientific fields. Our goal is to provide an avenue of knowledge that can be used to heal that which is most important to us: Our Patients! Enjoy!

A generation of children are born without speech, without comprehension, without language entirely. At first, they are just medical curiosities. But their numbers swell, and soon they grow into an established underclass, occupying squats and communes around the world. To some they are seen as a threat; to others, as a salvation. Some suspect they may have other abilities beyond our understanding. The children cannot tell you their story. Instead we rely on The Silent History, a collection of testimonies from those touched by the phenomenon. Parents, doctors, opportunist inventors, cult leaders, and vigilantes, recall what they have endured and what they have inflicted on others. They will take you from a recognisable present to a real and unsettling future. You will not want to look away.

The result is A Patchwork of Comforts, a collection of comforting and comfortable things to soothe body, mind, and spirit.

A-to-Z comforts include: Alone Time: The only voice you hear is your ownAromas: Trigger memoriesBrainrest: A chance to recoup and regroupCrosswords: The right word satisfiesCuddling: Back to the wombDaydreams: Going to the movies freeDogs: Part of the familyVacation: A break from responsibilityWater: Watch it, hear it, drink it, play in it X-tra Time: Ditching the clock lets you finish...whateverYoung at Heart: Keeps you in the loopZZZ's: Renews and reactivates There are plenty of comforting activities to take the sting out of even the worst days: sitting by a fire after a long walk in the cold; watching birds in the back yard; enjoying a big cup of homemade hot chocolate; bathing by candlelight; a weekend camping trip--with no electronic appliances. A Patchwork of Comforts is a homecoming in a book--welcoming, warm, and wise.
