She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World
Chelsea Clinton introduces tiny feminists, mini activists and little kids who are ready to take on the world to thirteen inspirational women who never took no for an answer, and who always, inevitably and without fail, persisted.
 
Throughout American history, there have always been women who have spoken out for what's right, even when they have to fight to be heard. In early 2017, Senator Elizabeth Warren's refusal to be silenced in the Senate inspired a spontaneous celebration of women who persevered in the face of adversity. In this book, Chelsea Clinton celebrates thirteen American women who helped shape our country through their tenacity, sometimes through speaking out, sometimes by staying seated, sometimes by captivating an audience. They all certainly persisted.
 
She Persisted is for everyone who has ever wanted to speak up but has been told to quiet down, for everyone who has ever tried to reach for the stars but was told to sit down, and for everyone who has ever been made to feel unworthy or unimportant or small.
 
With vivid, compelling art by Alexandra Boiger, this book shows readers that no matter what obstacles may be in their paths, they shouldn't give up on their dreams. Persistence is power.
 
This book features: Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, Clara Lemlich, Nellie Bly, Virginia Apgar, Maria Tallchief, Claudette Colvin, Ruby Bridges, Margaret Chase Smith, Sally Ride, Florence Griffith Joyner, Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor—and one special cameo.

Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why?
The past few decades have seen a massive increase in the number of international organizations focusing on global health. Campaigns to eradicate or stem the spread of AIDS, SARS, malaria, and Ebola attest to the increasing importance of globally-oriented health organizations. These organizations may be national, regional, international, or even non-state organizations-like Medicins Sans Frontieres. One of the more important recent trends in global health governance, though, has been the rise of public-private partnerships (PPPs) where private non-governmental organizations, for-profit enterprises, and various other social entrepreneurs work hand-in-hand with governments to combat specific maladies. A primary driver for this development is the widespread belief that by joining together, PPPs will attack health problems and fund shared efforts more effectively than other systems.

As Chelsea Clinton and Devi Sridhar show in Governing Global Health, these partnerships are not only important for combating infectious diseases; they also provide models for developing solutions to a host of other serious global health challenges and questions beyond health. But what do we actually know about the accountability and effectiveness of PPPs in relation to the traditional multilaterals? According to Clinton and Sridhar, we have known very little because scholars have not accumulated enough data or developed effective ways to assess them-until now. In their analysis, they uncovered both strength and weaknesses of the model. Using principal-agent theory in which governments are the principals directing international agents of various type, they take a closer look at two major PPPs-the Global Fund to Fight HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria and the GAVI Alliance-and two major more traditional international organizations-the World Health Organization and the World Bank.

An even-handed and thorough empirical analysis of one of the most pressing topics in world affairs, Governing Global Health will reshape our understanding of how organizations can more effectively prevent the spread of communicable diseases like AIDS and reduce pervasive chronic health problems like malnutrition.

Ella persistió: 13 mujeres americanas que cambiaron el mundo (Spanish Edition)
A lo largo de la historia de Estados Unidos, siempre ha habido mujeres que han alzado sus voces para protestar por la injusticia, aun cuando tuvieron que luchar para ser escuchadas.

A principio de 2017, la postura de la Senadora Elizabeth Warren, al negarse a ser silenciada durante un debate en el Senado, provocó un espontáneo homenaje a todas las mujeres que han perseverado ante la adversidad. En este libro, Chelsea Clinton rinde homenaje a trece mujeres americanas que contribuyeron a forjar los ideales de nuestro país gracias a su tenacidad, a veces alzando sus voces en señal de protesta, otras, optando por no levantarse de su asiento o cautivando al público. Todas ellas persistieron. 

Ella persistió es para todos los que en alguna ocasión han querido alzar su voz, pero han sido silenciados, para los que han tratado de alcanzar las estrellas, pero les han dicho que es mejor no intentarlo, y para todos aquellos a los que en algún momento los han hecho sentir insignificantes, pequeños, sin importancia.

Las vívidas y persuasivas ilustraciones de Alexandra Boiger muestran a los lectores que no importan los obstáculos que encuentren en el camino, nunca deben abandonar sus sueños. Perseverancia es poder.

Waist Away: How to Joyfully Lose Weight and Supercharge Your Life
NEW COMPANION COOKBOOK NOW AVAILABLE!

DO YOU WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT EFFORTLESSLY AND FEEL FABULOUS?

A mother/daughter physician team will show you how in waist away, a book that reflects their 15 years of medical experience and cutting-edge nutritional know-how. These two docs believe in the philosophy that good food is always your best medicine. You’ll read stories of their patients who lost weight and conquered chronic diseases, simply from eating a delicious, plant-based diet.

Waist Away features special sections on revving up your sex drive, staving off osteoporosis, conquering food addictions, and sailing through menopause. You’ll also get great advice and recipes from the biggest names in the nutrition world. If you’re ready to lose weight joyfully and live a life free of disease—in a delicious way that makes sense for yourself and the planet—this book is for you.

Waist Away reads like one of those long, candid conversations you’ve always wanted to have with your family doctor. The kind you never get to enjoy because everyone’s watching the clock and other patients are waiting….

If there’s a main focus to Waist Away, it’s the virtue of vegan living. Clifton is a firm believer that a diet containing red meat significantly increases the risk of chronic disease, so it’s a subject she doesn’t hesitate to address in a very pragmatic way. “I try not to use any “v” words on the first appointment,” she quips of her encounters with patients. “It’s like talking about your crazy relatives on the first date.”

Throughout the book the tone is friendly, reassuring, and even humorous. Clifton describes some of the challenges she’s encountered as a vegetarian—for example, going out to dinner parties and being the only guest at the table without a plate of food because of her “special needs.” Her approach is down-to-earth, grounded, and practical, and her recipes reflect her focus on healthy living with foods such as Cajun red beans, vegetarian chili, wraps, and sandwiches.

Clinton makes a strong case for going vegan. Careful readers may just find themselves making a few lifestyle changes. —ForeWord Reviews

Dr. Mary has done an exceptional job distilling the science of lifestyle medicine into actionable nuggets of good health. Her approach to good health is a sure fire way to achieve your best health starting today. Fingers, feet and forks are the "secret" to good health, and Dr. Mary teaches you how to use all three to move from surviving to thriving. —Dr. Stephan Esser, M.D., Founder of Esser Health

I have placed Waist Away on my required reading list for my friends, private patients and family members; all the people who matter the most to me. —Don Wagner, D.O., Medical Director of Bullhead Urgent Care and host of the Dr. Don Show.

I applaud [Dr. Mary’s] efforts to spread the word with the readers of her timely and informative book. —Charles J Huebner, MD, FACR, Harbor Arthritis/Lifestyle Center Petoskey, MI

The Other Parent: The Inside Story of the Media's Effect on Our Children

Kids must have special rules. It is more than naive to pretend that the market alone will protect them. We recognize this in virtually every sphere of life. Yet in the media, we have stripped away the very rules created to protect them, leaving them almost entirely to the profit-driven manipulations of the free market.

THE OTHER PARENT
THE INSIDE STORY OF THE MEDIA'S EFFECT ON OUR CHILDREN

James P. Steyer's explosive investigation into how the media affects our children is a groundbreaking book that will shock most parents. Through songs on the radio, Internet access, television, and movies, our kids are learning how to live in an adult world long before they are ready. They are besieged on a daily basis by images of sex, commercialism, and violence via such mainstream programming as Dawson's Creek, films such as American Pie and The Matrix, and computer games such as Doom and Quake. "This is the new media reality," Steyer states, "and it is one most parents are not prepared for."

Steyer examines how we have allowed media to bombard our children's lives and he offers practical advice on countering the incessant parade of images that frighten, intrigue, and influence America's kids:

  • Putting your kids on a media diet
  • Finding alternative activities for them besides television and the Internet
  • Discovering what they think about the commercials, programs, and music they encounter on a daily basis
  • Organizing advocacy groups, contacting government leaders, and boycotting media outlets that target children with inappropriate content.

    The Other Parent is a powerful and provocative book about the media's incredible impact on our families and our society.
