3500 Days of Summer is an enticingly addictive read. In the same vein as The Devil Wears Prada or The Nanny Diaries, 3500 Days of Summer is a blistering kiss-and-tell about the international resort industry. You'll be amazed at the dysfunctional lives of these people. A former nine-to-five investment banker, Hannah is literally thrown to the sharks for his first resort assignment in the Caribbean as a glorified bookkeeper for the resort's scuba team. Though Hannah is vastly over-educated for this job, he seems to take perverse pleasure in the non-stop abuse he suffers at the hands of sophisticated European travellers and staff. In an enviroment where the average work schedule is sixteen hours seven days a week, Hannah endures midnight rehearsals, tyrannical resort managers and the amorous attentions of a never-ending supply of beautiful women relentlessly throwing themselves at him. 3500 Days does for resorts what Animal House did for higher education.

In first, we make the beast beautiful, Sarah directs her intense focus and fierce investigatory skills onto this lifetime companion of hers, looking at the triggers and treatments, the fashions and fads. She reads widely and interviews fellow sufferers, mental health experts, philosophers, and even the Dalai Lama, processing all she learns through the prism her own experiences. Sarah pulls at the thread of accepted definitions of anxiety, and unravels the notion that it is a difficult, dangerous disease that must be medicated into submission.

It will encourage the myriad sufferers of the world's most common mental illness to feel not just better about their condition, but delighted by the possibilities it offers for a richer, fuller life.

"After the war, Dr. Mitchell established his medical practice in Marshall, where, he observes, he was among sixteen physicians in a rural county with a population of less than twenty thousand people. Within twenty-five years, the number of doctors had dropped to only four. In this memoir, Dr. Mitchell conveys his unwillingness to just sit by and watch the health needs of his community increase while medical and other services decline. He, instead, became a community activist, representing rural concerns to the state medical society, organizing the first emergency medical technician teams in the county, masterminding the planning of a regional medical center, campaigning successfully for improved highway safety, and spurring the extension of reliable telephone service throughout his area." "As Dr. Mitchell recounts the house calls, farm accidents, emergency surgeries, and family counseling that comprised the life of this country doctor, he offers the keen insights of a clinician trained to look beyond what others only see. Still a practicing physician, Dr. Mitchell ably comprehends the values of the people he has treated and marks the transition from post-World War I medicine to high-tech healing."--BOOK JACKET.

"Truly remarkable portraits of courage." -- John van Amerongen, editor, Alaska Fisherman's Journal "These little-known tales of women working in Alaska's commercial fishing industry make for great reading. . . . Readers will be amazed by their stories." -- Laine Welch, Alaska Fish Radio "A richly textured story, a multi-genre text that invites readers to witness women's conversation with America's last frontier, Alaska." -- Patricia Foster, University of Iowa Why do women choose an occupation that has been ranked the most dangerous in the nation? What do women give up--and get in return--when they take on the tasks of fishermen? The Entangling Net explores these issues through the stories of twenty women who have chosen to work in this extremely risky, male-dominated profession. Leslie Leyland Fields lyrically weaves their stories with her own experiences as a fishing woman. She tells of long, exhausting days in skiffs, catching fish in brutally cold weather on waters that are often violent. Her words and those of the women she interviews convey the paradoxical relationship the women have with commercial fishing: they face extraordinarily difficult working conditions made more difficult and dangerous by male crews and skippers who don't welcome women, yet they feel impelled by the challenge of the work to return to their jobs season after season.

A story of the coasters, the people of the mid-Atlantic barrier islands- as they evolve from the days of outlaw gunners and commercial fishermen, to the development of the sport-fishing industry. A story of rich and poor- the guides and captains who had the skills that made it possible and the rich who had the money to pay for it- bound together by the legendary Kelly of the island of Bimini. The last generation of the Odens persevere as they fight and love, kill and die, from the High Atlas mountains of North Africa and the brothels of Casablanca, to the islands of the mid-Atlantic and the southeast coast of the United States, and finally to the halls of Congress and The Supreme Court.
