The Root of Thought: Unlocking Glia-the Brain Cell That Will Help Us Sharpen Our Wits, Heal Injury, and Treat Brain Disease , by Andrew Koob
Discover the Other 90% of Your Brain
* Learn about brain science breakthroughs that might hold the key to intelligence, creativity, and imagination.
* Discover amazing cells that keep your brain growing, adapting, and healing.
* Preview possible breakthroughs for brain cancer, brain trauma, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and even schizophrenia.
If you know anything about brains, you’ve heard of neurons. Those are the cells that have long been seen as central to virtually everything your brain thinks, feels, and does. But neurons represent only 10% of your brain cells.
What does the other 90% do?
Until recently, scientists didn’t have a clue. Now, they’re discovering the real function of those long-neglected glial cells–and the story is nothing short of amazing.
In The Root of Thought, brain scientist Andrew Koob reveals that story. You’ll learn what glial cells are, how they function, and how they might help explain everything from intelligence and creativity to imagination and dreams. Then, Koob reveals the tantalizing clues about glial cells that could eventually lead to cures for brain injury, psychiatric disorders, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Lou Gehrig’s disease, and even brain cancer.
Ted Kennedy's Leadership Lessons is a business short from FT Press and the editors of New Word City.
Born the youngest of four sons in America's "royal family," Edward M. Kennedy was considered the least likely to succeed. His early years seemed to bear out this prognosis. But after being elected to the United States Senate, facing almost unspeakable tragedy, and owning up to his mistakes, Kennedy grew into one of the greatest senators in American history. He was a leader who understood how to forge alliances, build consensus, and get results. The lessons of his life are essential for any leader.
The life of Edward "Ted" Kennedy reads like a gripping novel about a man who transforms himself in the crucible of tragedy and emerges triumphant. Ultimately it is a story of redemption, of a man who grew into himself-and became one of the most effective, powerful, and revered leaders in American history.
Born February 22, 1932, in Boston, Massachusetts, Edward Moore Kennedy was the youngest of nine children in what is often referred to as America's "royal family." He had politics in his blood-both his father, Joseph P. Kennedy, and his mother, the former Rose Fitzgerald, came from prominent Irish-Catholic families long involved in the rough-edged world of Democratic politics in Boston and Massachusetts.

But ultimately, leading with integrity wasn’t just personally right for Huntsman, it also proved to be the best business strategy.
In Winners Never Cheat, Huntsman tells you how he did it, and how you can, too. This book is about remembering why you work, and why you were chosen to lead. It’s about finding the bravery to act on what you know is right, no matter what you’re up against.
