'Required reading ... Brock Bastian expertly picks apart the fundamental idea that humans thrive when they approach pleasure and avoid pain, explaining why hardship sometimes yields richer lives that are laden with meaning, deep social connections, and unexpected bliss' Adam Alter, author of Drunk Tank Pink In today's culture, happiness has become the new marker of success, while hardships are viewed as personal weaknesses, or problems to be fixed. We increasingly try to eradicate pain through medication and by insulating ourselves from risk and offence, despite being the safest generation to have ever lived. Yet in his research, renowned social psychologist Brock Bastian has found that suffering and sadness are neither antithetical to happiness nor incidental to it: they are a necessary ingredient for emotional well-being. Drawing on psychology, neuroscience and internationally acclaimed findings from Bastian's own lab, The Other Side of Happiness encourages us to take a more fearless approach to living. The most thrilling moments of our lives are often balanced on a knife edge between pleasure and pain, whether it is finding your true love, holding your new-born for the first time, finishing a marathon or even plunging into an icy sea. This is because pain and the threat of loss quite literally increase our capacity for happiness, as Bastian reveals, making us stronger, more resilient, more connected to other people and more attuned to what truly matters. Pain even makes us more mindful, since in our darkest moments we are especially focused and aware of the world around us. Our addiction to positivity and the pursuit of pleasure is actually making us miserable. Brock Bastian shows that, without some pain, we have no real way to achieve and appreciate the kind of happiness that is true and transcendent.

"The Other Side of Medicine" is an amusing and challenging reflection of changes and fashions in general practice. Covering various themes including humanity in medicine, communication, and quality assessment of doctors, Peter Tate offers an abundance of personal anecdotes and patient perspectives. Doctors, particularly general practitioners, their trainers and examiners, and medical students will find this romp through a half century of medical life invigorating and invaluable. "This book is a collection of articles and short stories covering a medical career. Some are iconoclastic, the theme of good communication in medicine runs throughout, other themes are quality in doctors and the assessment of that quality but I hope the main strand of the book is humanity in medicine and my attempts at understanding what that is." - Peter Tate, in the Preface.

Mac Lewis was a crew boat operator for a small boat rental company. On that blistering Louisiana afternoon, he was to conduct crewmembers of a large, inland oil-drilling barge to the latest drilling station. It was business as usual, and he brought his rowdy, roughneck farers to work without much ado. When night descended upon the waters, however, Mac found himself unable to sleep. After much tossing and turning to the sound of heavy drilling engines and clanging of pipes, he finally drifted into a listless sleep. However, Mac would wake up to an entirely new realm of existence. The clanging sounds and thunderous drilling were gone, to be replaced by an eerie quiet, a most unusual phenomenon in the midst of a drilling station. Not only that, but he would begin to realize that his entire body was different, too different to be his ? too different to be a man?s. With the final, unmistakable assessment to verify that his manhood was nonexistent, the unbelievable reality set in with dawning horror. Mac was now a man in a woman?s body. Who was this woman and why was he in her body? Why had it happened? Where in the world was he? The questions would come forth unrestrained and unanswered. Thus, begins the greatest adventure of Mac?s life, a surreal adventure indeed as, for the first time, he would view the world through the other side of the gender fence ? with the eyes, body, and life of a woman. As the questions drive him to seek for answers, he would find out just how it would feel to literally be in a woman?s shoes, dodging compromising situations, experiencing a much heightened danger on the streets and the ever-present emotions that course through a woman?s being. Lucas? The Other Side is absolutely riveting, a compelling read that readers will find hard to put down.

This manuscript that you are reading is not a book in the traditional sense of the word. It is rather a compilation of thoughts and experiences I have had and various treatises that I have felt compelled to write over the last few years. It is because of my desire to share these observations that I have decided to put them together. They all served to codify my thoughts and feelings and convey what I personally believe in areas of health of body, mind and spirit. Because some of these articles were written at different times, you may find certain truths repeated from time to time. Please forgive this and edit them out; it is my feeling that they serve to reinforce that which has helped me to arrive happily at three score and ten. I still refer back to this book as a resource and find its validity for me to be sustaining. If it helps you to have at least one happier day, it will have fulfilled its purpose.
