[まとめ買い] 社会の裏側!
その国の国民が、現在「幸福なのかそうでないのか」を手っ取り早く知るには、「弱者」の現状を見ればすぐに分かります。子どもや女性、障害者、老人たちがいかに虐(しいた)げられているのか。それはほかの国もまったく同様です。この日本では、21世紀のいま、何を間違ったのか、弱者たる女子中高生たちを大いに苦しめている事実が明らかになりました。それは、「子宮頸(けい)ガンワクチン」。これによる、きわめて重篤(じゅうとく)な副作用が各地で報告されているんですね。2013年の3月25日には、「全国子宮頸がんワクチン被害者連絡会」が設立されるまでになっております。ある父親によれば、被害者は高校2年の16歳の娘だとのこと。商品名「サーバリックス」のワクチンを3回接種したとのことですが、その後、高熱や体の痛みがあり、座ると立ち上がれない状態になり、病院に行ったとのことです。なのに、最初の医師は、それの症状を軽視し、内診もせずに「風邪薬を処方」したというわけなんですね。全身が痛くてぐったりしている娘を目の前にして、そのような対応をする医師。そのような事例を、本書では紹介し、いったいいま薬の認可がどうなっているのか

Family of Rescue Dogs (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: SASHA is the story of a very remarkable dog: a Staffordshire Bull Terrier abandoned close to death at the age of 6 weeks old. Rescued from a street gutter, she had the good fortune to be adopted by author Brian L. Porter and his family.

Despite suffering from a catalogue of injuries, including two broken legs and skin allergies, and eventually being diagnosed as a serious epileptic at just two years old, Sasha's story is one of triumph over adversity; of love, happiness and inspiration. Her love of life and capacity for enjoying every day to the fullest is nothing short of miraculous, and her story is told here by the person who shares every moment of her life on a daily basis, and how a disabled author and his dog have become dependent on each other.

It is a story that has already touched many who have come into contact with her, from vets to nurses and a whole host of followers on her own Facebook page. Read her story and join them in sharing in the life of an amazing and very special dog!

PUBLISHER'S NOTE
Now available in a new, updated second edition, with a new chapter and additional photographs.

Annals of the Former World (4 Book Series)
From Book 1:

The first of John McPhee's works in his series on geology and geologists, Basin and Range is a book of journeys through ancient terrains, always in juxtaposition with travels in the modern world—a history of vanished landscapes, enhanced by the histories of people who bring them to light. The title refers to the physiographic province of the United States that reaches from eastern Utah to eastern California, a silent world of austere beauty, of hundreds of discrete high mountain ranges that are green with junipers and often white with snow. The terrain becomes the setting for a lyrical evocation of the science of geology, with important digressions into the plate-tectonics revolution and the history of the geologic time scale.

Yorkshire Romances (7 Book Series)
From Book 1:
A desperate jewelry designer falls for a mysterious musician in “a real gem of a story that completely caught me by surprise” (Romance Junkies).
 
After a rough patch that she doesn’t like to talk about, Jemima Hutton is determined to build a successful new life. Unfortunately, her handmade jewelry business is on the edge of ruin. That is, until the enigmatic Ben Davies offers to stock her handmade belt buckles in his guitar shop and things soon start looking up.
 
But Ben has his own secrets he’d prefer to keep quiet. When Jemima finds out he used to be the front man of a hugely successful indie band, she wants to know more. Like why did he desert the band on their US tour? And why is he now a semi-recluse?
 
But the curiosity is mutual—which means that Jemima’s own secret is no longer safe. And only by trusting one another will Ben and Jemima be able to rock together, in this witty tale that earned RoNA Awards for both Best Romantic Comedy Novel and Romantic Novel of the Year.

Easy-Growing Gardening Series (10 Book Series)
From Book 1: At last, help for home food gardeners. The simple, month-by-month layout of Don’t Throw in the Trowel will help gardeners grow a bounty of vegetables, fruits, and herbs. Grow luscious tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, melons, and more, and enjoy all the fresh produce (and give the surplus to family and friends) that your garden grows using these easy tips. Don’t Throw in the Trowel: A Month-by-Month Vegetable Gardening Guide is a fun read for every locavore who wants to cart tomatoes out of the garden by the wagonful.

Even if you’ve never been a farmer or a gardener before, this vegetable gardening book covers everything you need to know to get started. Here you can find specific information about starting seeds, transplanting, mulching, organic fertilizers, dealing with pest and disease problems, compost, and of course, information about different vegetables and helpful advice on how to grow them. You can also find information about square foot gardening, beneficial insects (and insect pests), easy ways to keep weeds down, and ways to extent the growing season into the winter months using cold frames and floating row covers.

What’s more, the methods used in this book are those to save time (and your poor back and joints). Gardening can hurt sometimes – as the author can attest after having been felled by a bad back during her horticulturing days. This book is full of ways to keep you from ending up the way she did. Many organic methods actually help make gardening easier. For instance, putting down a thick layer of mulch early in the year helps you keep weeds down, reduce watering, add organic matter to the soil, and keep the plants cool in the summer heat. Grow heirloom vegetables for a reliable, colorful crop – and you can keep using the seeds from these plants years after year.

Most of all, this book also leads you on a month-by-month tour of the vegetable garden, so you can keep up with what needs to be done this month – and look ahead so you can be ready for next month.

It’s always good to grow your own vegetables, especially with concerns about how far grocery store produce is shipped, concerns about the environment, and concerns about the future. But there’s also a new understanding of how good it is to get outside and work with plants, and how delicious those first sun-warmed tomatoes are, and how good a newly-picked strawberry tastes, and how astonished your toddler is when she pulls up her first carrot. There’s nothing on earth that can beat that.

Review: "What a delightful read this is! This lady certainly knows her onions! There is a wealth of practical knowledge to be had in this book. Not having kept a veggie garden for a number of years, It both reminded things I already knew and informed me of many things I didn't. It is an ideal guide for both new-comers to the gardening world, as well as established gardeners." -- Ty from Wales
