Summary : Most people know that in 1962 Saskatchewan became the "birthplace of Medicare" and that the rest of Canada soon followed. However, few people today remember the political fight that the people of Saskatchewan and its doctors waged in opposition to their government's plan. In Setting the Record Straight, the events of that year are vividly remembered by one who not only witnessed it, but was an active participant. In the 50th anniversary of Saskatchewan's Medical Care Insurance Act, Dr. Noel Doig presents for the first time what the introduction of Medicare meant from the perspective of the doctors and patients of Saskatchewan at the time. With rich storytelling detail, and punctuated by the witty political cartoons of the late Saskatoon Star Phoenix/Regina Leader Post artist Ed Sebestyen, Doig recounts in dramatic fashion the story of how politics trumped principle. Setting the Record the Record Straight is written to ensure that the physicians' untold story of the Medicare crisis is accurately recorded for the posterity by one who made a promise to his colleagues that he would do so in their memory. It is not intended to present prescriptions for the present or future. It is Doig's life legacy: the culmination of a career devoted to his patients and to advocacy for the best medical care systems and practices for them - regardless of the implications for their doctors, or for politicians. Experience teaches us to ignore history at our peril as it has a tendency to repeat itself. In that context, this memoir is an important and timely piece of Saskatchewan and Canadian medical and social history. The lessons of the history are particularly important now, as the future of Canada's medical system is being hotly debated. Health care is consistently a top-of-mind issue for Canadians in every political poll. Additionally, the relevance of these issues extends southward as Americans continue to scrutinize their health care system and versions of Medicare, including Canada's. It is a dominant domestic issue of the upcoming 2012 Presidential election campaign, and will undoubtedly influence voters' choice of the next U.S. President.

Summary : Seven years in the making, this is the complete account of the career, music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix, based entirely on first-person recollections and new, exclusive photographs and documents. Since his death in 1970 at the age of twenty-seven, Jimi Hendrix has been mythologised as a risk-taker who lost it all - and not the serious musician whose sole desire was to play and write great music. Now, authors John McDermott and Eddie Kramer (Jimi's long-time producer) set the record straight. From Jimi's Greenwich Village days to his Electric Ladybird nights, they chronicle the innovative techniques of a pioneer who painstakingly worked to perfect the sounds others couldn't even imagine, despite being modest to the point of shyness about his own singing talent. Key figures in his inner circle such as his manager Chas Chandler shed light on Jimi's whirlwind three-and-a-half year career. Hendrix: Setting the Record Straight is the definitive biography of a legend whose recording career transformed the essence of rock and roll.

Summary : Michael Barrymore is one of Britain's favourite entertainers. His appearances on Saturday night TV in the 1980s and 90s were unforgettable and the relationship he built with the audience unique. However, following the tragic death of Stuart Lubbock in Michael's swimming pool in 2001, his career ground to a halt. AWRIGHT NOW is Michael's story. He takes us through his rollercoaster life, from his poor London childhood, his work as a Butlin's Redcoat, through to TV and tabloid fame. At the height of his popularity, he suffered increasing alcohol problems and split from his wife of twenty years, Cheryl. In the fall-out, he admitted that he was homosexual and endured horrendous press intrusion into his private life. Then in 2001, came the terrible death of Stuart Lubbock. Michael tells of his despair following the tragedy and how his world fell apart. Despite tabloid accusations that he had somehow caused Stuart's death, Michael was found innocent. Since 2001, Michael has endured some dark moments but through determination and the love of his friends, he is now picking up the pieces. His remarkable TV comeback on Celebrity Big Brother has catapulted him back into the spotlight and a new Channel 4 series is planned for the autumn 2006.

Summary : The past two decades, beginning with the public's use of the Internet in 1994 and continuing with the emergence of notebook computers, smart phones, tablets, e-readers, blogs, wikis, Twitter, and social media, has seen the most rapid evolution of communications and its impact on every aspect of society from commerce to education and from culture to government. Digital media are impacting every aspect of our lives, but they are more in control of us than we are of them.

This book posits that McLuhan holds the key to our understanding of the new digital media. Marshall McLuhan was one of the most influential thinkers of the twentieth century. This book will set the record straight and provide a guide to and insights into the thinking of Marshall McLuhan. This book is the medium and Marshall is the message.

Summary : Who are the best quarterbacks in NFL history? How about running backs? Wide receivers? How can we objectively rate the performance of individual defensive players? And how can we make reasonable judgments about players at different positions and from different eras? Who is the greatest football player of all time? Jerry Rice? Lawrence Taylor? Jim Brown? Such are the questions pondered by pro football writer Steve Silverman late at night (and during the day). As statistician Elliott Kalb did with baseball, basketball, and golf, Silverman now takes the next step with Who’s Better, Who’s Best in Football?. Taking the analytical methods he developed over his years as a senior editor at Pro Football Weekly, he applies them to an evaluation of players going back to the earliest days of the NFL. The result is a fascinating ranking of the best of the gridiron, from legendary old-timers like Sammy Baugh to present-day superstars like Peyton Manning. Throughout, Silverman discusses the many considerations that must be made when comparing modern players with players of past eras and players at different positions. Including biographical essays on those top 75 players and detailed statistics for their playing careers, Who’s Better, Who’s Best in Football? is a must have for anyone who considers football to be more than just a game.
