Ticker Book Review:

It wasn't supposed to be this hard. If America could send a man to the moon, shouldn't the best surgeons in the world be able to build an artificial heart? In Ticker, Texas Monthly executive editor and two time National Magazine Award winner Mimi Swartz shows just how complex and difficult it can be to replicate one of nature's greatest creations. Part investigative journalism, part medical mystery, Ticker is a dazzling story of modern innovation, recounting fifty years of false starts, abysmal failures and miraculous triumphs, as experienced by one the world's foremost heart surgeons, O.H. "Bud" Frazier, who has given his life to saving the un-savable. His journey takes him from a small town in west Texas to one of the country's most prestigious medical institutions, The Texas Heart Institute, from the halls of Congress to the animal laboratories where calves are fitted with new heart designs. The roadblocks to success --medical setbacks, technological shortcomings, government regulations - are immense. Still, Bud and his associates persist, finding inspiration in the unlikeliest of places. A field beside the Nile irrigated by an Archimedes screw. A hardware store in Brisbane, Australia. A seedy bar on the wrong side of Houston. Until post WWII, heart surgery did not exist. Ticker provides a riveting history of the pioneers who gave their all to the courageous process of cutting into the only organ humans cannot live without. Heart surgeons Michael DeBakey and Denton Cooley, whose feud dominated the dramatic beginnings of heart surgery. Christian Barnaard, who changed the world overnight by performing the first heart transplant. Inventor Robert Jarvik, whose artificial heart made patient Barney Clark a worldwide symbol of both the brilliant promise of technology and the devastating evils of experimentation run amuck. Rich in supporting players, Ticker introduces us to Bud's brilliant colleagues in his quixotic quest to develop an artificial heart: Billy Cohn, the heart surgeon and inventor who devotes his spare time to the pursuit of magic and music; Daniel Timms, the Brisbane biomedical engineer whose design of a lightweight, pulseless heart with but a single moving part offers a new way forward. And, as government money dries up, the unlikeliest of backers, Houston's furniture king, Mattress Mack. In a sweeping narrative of one man's obsession, Swartz raises some of the hardest questions of the human condition. What are the tradeoffs of medical progress? What is the cost, in suffering and resources, of offering patients a few more months, or years of life? Must science do harm to do good? Ticker takes us on an unforgettable journey into the power and mystery of the human heart.

Ladies of the Ticker Book Review:

Long overlooked in histories of finance, women played an essential role in areas such as banking and the stock market during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Yet their presence sparked ongoing controversy. Hetty Green's golden touch brought her millions, but she outraged critics with her rejection of domesticity. Progressives like Victoria Woodhull, meanwhile, saw financial acumen as more important for women than the vote. George Robb's pioneering study sheds a light on the financial methods, accomplishments, and careers of three generations of women. Plumbing sources from stock brokers' ledgers to media coverage, Robb reveals the many ways women invested their capital while exploring their differing sources of information, approaches to finance, interactions with markets, and levels of expertise. He also rediscovers the forgotten women bankers, brokers, and speculators who blazed new trails--and sparked public outcries over women's unsuitability for the predatory rough-and-tumble of market capitalism. Entertaining and vivid with details, Ladies of the Ticker sheds light on the trailblazers who transformed Wall Street into a place for women's work.

Ticker Tittle-Tattles Book Review:

The End of time will come all of a sudden. The holy Qur'an tells us that it will appear to people as if they have tarried a single evening on Earth. The knowledge of the final Hour is with the Almighty God alone. When the Hour comes the moon would be cleft asunder. The serious question at this stage is how prepared are we for the final Hour; the exact timing of it, as mentioned already, is only known to the Almighty God, the most exalted and has not reveal it to any one. Mass production and mass organisation have blinded mankind, societies and nations. Mankind has become so engrossed in material things to the extent that they take no notice of the signs of the final Hour that are now evident every where. Instead mankind has chosen to waste precious time in ephemeral things. A brave soldier, who left his sword behind in his house and went out to fight with the scabbard: Indeed, any one who forgets the Day of meeting with his or her creator, will go empty handed into the Eternal Home and face the wrath of God on the Judgement Day.

Ticker Tape Two Book Review:

Have you ever wondered what your pet is thinking? Of course you have. Every time you speak to your pet and it cocks its ears and tilts its head from side to side, and looks at you with a puzzled expression, you probably thought to yourself, “Do you understand me? I wish I knew what you are thinking! Well, you are finally going to find out. At least from a pet groomers point of view. No, groomers are not mind readers, but rather they read the animals body language and watch for signs of stress and anxiety. And the first visit is probably the most important part of the grooming process. On that first visit the groomer gets to know the owner and what he/she expects out of the groom. The groomer must first make certain that the pet has had all of its immunization shots, especially if the pet is still a puppy. At this point the groomer should discuss life-style and grooming habits. For example, a long-haired pet such as a Maltese requires daily brushing AND COMBING to maintain that beautiful long, white coat. But if the owner neglects to do daily maintenance on the pet then the groomer must inform the owner of the possibility of an extra charge for de-matting or recommend a shorter, more manageable haircut. But I could go on and on about the grooming profession; However, I thing you would prefer to get on with the poetry. In this book I’m going to include some bathing tips and some cat poetry, I hope. And possible a story that I think you might like. So, I hope you enjoy my second effort.

The Stock Ticker and the Superjumbo Book Review:

A majority of Americans tell pollsters they want more government intervention to reduce the gap between high- and lower-income citizens, and less than one-third consider high taxes to be a problem. Yet conservative Republicanism currently controls the political discourse. Why? Rick Perlstein probes this central paradox of today's political scene in his penetrating pamphlet. Perlstein explains how the Democrats' obsessive short-term focus on winning "swing voters," instead of cultivating loyal party-liners, has relegated Democrats to political stagnation. Perlstein offers a vigorous critique and far-reaching vision that is a thirty-year plan for Democratic victory. Contributors: William A. Galston Adolph Reed, Jr. Ruy Teixeira Dan Carol Daniel Cantor Robert B. Reich Michael C. Dawson Elaine Kamarck Richard Delgado Stanley Aronowitz Philip Klinkner Larry M. Bartels

The Cable News Ticker, Viewer Comprehension and Information Overload Book Review:

On September 11, 2001, cable television news outlets began presenting viewers with a continuous news ticker, or crawl, on the bottom portion of the television screen, a feature that continues to be employed today. This study, the most comprehensive look at the news ticker to date, presents a three-pronged approach to understanding the news ticker and its effects on viewer comprehension and retention of information delivered in the main story (i.e., the upper, non-ticker, portion of the television screen). The study's main finding, derived from a viewer comprehension experiment, is that the presence of the news ticker is significantly negatively correlated with viewer comprehension of main story information. Additionally, a content analysis finds that while there are differences between the news tickers of CNN, Fox News Channel and MSNBC, these cable news outlets most often present a ticker featuring information that is unrelated to the main story. Results from a cable news viewer uses and gratifications survey suggest that most viewers watch cable news in order to become better informed, however experimental results indicate that this goal is being achieved at very low levels, with the news ticker worsening such a situation. The study interprets these findings through the lens of information overload theory, which posits that an individual presented with a large amount of disparate information at one time will have cognitive difficulties comprehending and retaining specific pieces of the information set.

Seventeen year-old Ticker Naft can't read or write; his sister won't get out of bed; and his father has a worrisome health problem. Then there's that big mystery Grandma keeps hinting at about Grandpa and the long ago house fire next door. When Grandpa dies abruptly after a smelt-eating contest, Ticker is thrown into an adult world that is at once captivating and cruel. Far from the safe haven of his special classes at school, he enters an apprenticeship on the local railroad, where he changes rails, pounds spikes, throws switches, and tries to figure out the often confusing intentions of his co-workers. But Ticker's true test comes when he is accused of a shameful crime he didn't commit. While he negotiates this tricky course on Grandpa's three-wheeled bicycle, events seem determined to bring him down. Ticker must muster all his strength to keep his head above water while he tries to honor Grandpa's secret to life: Got to find a way.

The Man on the Balcony Book Review:

The chilling third -- and breakthrough -- novel in the Martin Beck mystery series by the internationally renowned crime writing duo, finds Martin Beck investigating a string of child murders. With an introduction by Jo Nesbo: "Sjöwall and Wahlöö have shoulders that can accomodate all of today's crime writers. And we are all there." In the once peaceful parks of Stockholm, a killer is stalking young girls and disposing their bodies. The city is on edge, and an undercurrent of fear has gripped its residents. Martin Beck, now a superintendent, has two possible witnesses: a silent, stone-cold mugger and a mute three year old boy. With the likelihood of another murder growing as each day passes, the police force work night and day. But their efforts have offered little insight into the methodology of the killer. Then a distant memory resurfaces in Beck's mind, and he may just have the break he needs.
