5.0 out of 5 stars Beauty Out of Loss, November 1, 2010
Joan Gussow has been called an "indomitable reclaimer," and here she writes of reclaiming her very self after the death of her husband of 40 years. Growing, Older leads you down many surprising philosophical paths, most of them leading back to her beloved 36-by-100-foot, life-sustaining garden by the ever-flooding Hudson River. We all must discover what will nurture and sustain us in the late decades of life, and Gussow's book offers necessary wisdom, humor and insight for the journey. "Hope is the lesson Nature keeps teaching me," Gussow writes. "She keeps producing. She recovers. She creates beauty out of loss."

5.0 out of 5 stars A Dream of a Book, March 9, 2004
What is the brain's true mission at night? Andrea Rock chronicles the astoundingly varied research by scientists in labs around the world who--aided by by new technologies that enable us to actually see the brain at work--have discovered undreamed of reasons for the mind to carry out its nightly visual odyssey.
Along the way, you'll learn about the unusual sleep pattern of dolphins (only one hemisphere of their brain sleeps at a time); why the functional anatomy of dreaming is almost identical to that of schizophrenic psychosis; how dreaming may serve as a kind of internal therapist, helping us to integrate the emotional experiences from the day; and why that pecuiliar egg-laying mammal known as the spiny anteater may be the key to knowing when the world's first dream could have appeared.
The Mind at Night is itself a dream of a book--its vast research woven into an elegant and quite thrilling narrative of scientists in pursuit of their Holy Grail: an understanding not only of dreams, but of the very nature of consciousness itself.
