My book presents a true, concise and straight forward accounts of my horrifying and hazardous journey with prominent doctors associated with Scripps Memorial hospital and UCSD in La Jolla, California. The doctors involved in my case made me go through severe unthinkable suffering and no proper medical care on site. I found myself sinking in deadly doctor’s death traps without seeing a way out. Death was holding me by the throat. My book offers a broad coverage of doctors cover-up, falsifying my medical five, conspiracy against me in the United States. Furthermore, I tried to provide you, as space permits, as account of the corruption and lawlessness in the Superior Court of San Diego, California, which denied me due process of law based on statute of limitations and made it impossible to get proper medical help. Publishing my book will captivate the hearts and minds of conscious people who believe in justice and humanity and to serve as an awakening call to the public.

‘Even though they’re gone from the world, they’re never gone from me.’ The Doctor is many things – curious, funny, brave, protective of her friends...and a shameless namedropper. While she and her companions battled aliens and travelled across the universe, the Doctor hinted at a host of previous, untold adventures with the great and the good: we discovered she got her sunglasses from Pythagoras (or was it Audrey Hepburn?); lent a mobile phone to Elvis; had an encounter with Amelia Earhart where she discovered that a pencil-thick spider web can stop a plane; had a 'wet weekend' with Harry Houdini, learning how to escape from chains underwater; and more. In this collection of new stories, Star Tales takes you on a rip-roaring ride through history, from 500BC to the swinging 60s, going deeper into the Doctor's notorious name-dropping and revealing the truth behind these anecdotes.

Award-winning investigative journalist Brian Deer reveals the shocking truth behind the rise of Andrew Wakefield, so-called 'father of the anti-vaccine movement', blamed for epidemics of fear, guilt, and disease that today circle the globe. As a doctor at a London medical school, in February 1998 Andrew Wakefield published explosive research in the Lancetmedical journal which terrified a generation of young parents. Claiming that the MMR vaccine given to millions of children caused autism, he triggered a crisis, with sickness and deaths, as immunisation rates plummeted. Brian Deer's landmark fifteen-year inquiry for The Sunday Times, Channel 4, and the British Medical Journalexposed the truth behind the now-ex-doctor's campaign: seeing him struck from the medical register, his research retracted, and his claims dubbed 'an elaborate fraud'. But today Wakefield is back: leading an international anti-vaccine crusade -- from Seattle to Sydney, São Paulo to Shanghai -- against one of medicine's greatest triumphs. The Doctor Who Fooled the Worldis a riveting detective story that penetrates layers of legal secrecy, medical confidentiality, business schemes, and smear campaigns to expose the scientific deception of our time.

Not only is Doctor Who the longest-running science fiction TV show in history, but it has also been translated into numerous languages, broadcast around the world, and referred to as the “way of the future” by some British politicians. The Classic Doctor Who series built up a loyal American cult following, with regular conventions and other activities. The new series, relaunched in 2005, has emerged from culthood into mass awareness, with a steadily growing viewership and major sales of DVDs. The current series, featuring the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, is breaking all earlier records, in both the UK and the US. Doctor Who is a continuing story about the adventures of a mysterious alien known as “the Doctor,” a traveller of both time and space whose spacecraft is the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimensions in Space), which from the outside looks like a British police telephone box of the 1950s. The TARDIS is “bigger on the inside than on the outside”—actually the interior is immense. The Doctor looks human, but has two hearts, and a knowledge of all languages in the universe. Periodically, when the show changes the leading actor, the Doctor “regenerates.”
