What does the blockchain mean to you? I keep hearing about it in the media - but don’t know what it is! I have read some things about it – but just don't get it. Isn’t it just a bandwagon that the financial media is over-hyping? Isn’t it just about drugs and hitmen? Block-what? Whatever your thoughts, the blockchain is gaining significant traction, with global media outlets increasing their almost insatiable coverage of the technology. So, why should you care? On December 2, 2015, the Goldman Sachs research team released their Emerging Theme Report. It simply said: “…the Blockchain, can change … well everything.” Now that's a big claim... but when this claim is added to : - Wangxiang Labs out of China announcing a $30bn blockchain-based investment fund for Smart Cities in September 2016. - IBM announcing in the same month their plans to spend $200m for the combination of Blockchain, Internet Of Things and Artificial Intelligence or - The Venture Capitalist community investing $1.3bn so far in the blockchain-related space Perhaps something big is going on…. Is it that: - You can send cleared funds internationally in 20 seconds, rather than 3 days? - You can remove the need for trusted third-parties - bankers, lawyers, accountants, auditors? - 20% of the world's population can finally secure an identity that will help remove human trafficking, even child prostitution. The blockchain is powerful, very powerful but is not a technology that can easily be described in a few words – and that is its problem. Business people like you find it confusing, geeky, and hard to get to grips with. Down The Rabbit Hole gives you a practical, easy-to-read, hands-on guide to the technology, its power, and how you can capitalise on that power. Whether you want to: - Make your organisation more innovative and effective - Make yourself more valuable in your marketplace - Develop new products or - Become the new Mark Zuckerberg Down The Rabbit Hole will have something for you, fast-tracking you to be at the leading edge of 21st-century business thinking. The genie is squeezing itself out of the bottle, one-way ticket in hand – and ready for you to command. However, be warned once you discover the power of the blockchain hidden deep beneath the surface, your eyes will open to green fields crammed full of explosive opportunities. How you use them is limited only by your imagination. So why not get the book today – and take the first steps towards a discovering your new world.

"Tell the doctor where it hurts." It sounds simple enough, unless the problem affects the very organ that produces awareness and generates speech. What is it like to try to heal the body when the mind is under attack? In this book, Dr. Allan Ropper and Brian Burrell take the reader behind the scenes at Harvard Medical School's neurology unit to show how a seasoned diagnostician faces down bizarre, life-altering afflictions. Like Alice in Wonderland, Dr. Ropper inhabits a world where absurdities abound: • A figure skater whose body has become a ticking time-bomb • A salesman who drives around and around a traffic rotary, unable to get off • A college quarterback who can't stop calling the same play • A child molester who, after falling on the ice, is left with a brain that is very much dead inside a body that is very much alive • A mother of two young girls, diagnosed with ALS, who has to decide whether a life locked inside her own head is worth living How does one begin to treat such cases, to counsel people whose lives may be changed forever? How does one train the next generation of clinicians to deal with the moral and medical aspects of brain disease? Dr. Ropper and his colleague answer these questions by taking the reader into a rarified world where lives and minds hang in the balance.

The real, untold, and unvarnished story of life inside the legendary Playboy Mansion—and the man who holds the key—from the woman who was Hef’s #1 girlfriend and star of The Girls Next Door. A spontaneous decision at age twenty-one transformed small-town Oregon girl Holly Sue Cullen into Holly Madison, Hugh Hefner’s #1 girlfriend. But like Alice in Wonderland after she plunged down the rabbit hole, what seemed like a fairytale life inside the Playboy Mansion—including A-list celebrity parties and her own #1-rated television show—quickly devolved into an oppressive routine of strict rules, manipulation, and battles with ambitious, backstabbing bunnies. Losing her identity, her sense of self-worth, and her hope for the future, Holly found herself sitting alone in a bathtub contemplating suicide. But instead of ending her life, Holly chose to take charge of it. In this shockingly candid and surprisingly moving memoir, this thoughtful and introspective woman opens up about life inside the Mansion, the drugs, the sex and the infamous parties, as well as what her relationships with her Girls Next Door co-stars, Bridget and Kendra were really like. Holly talks candidly about a subsequent abusive relationship, her own successful television series, and the hard work of healing, including her turn on Dancing with the Stars. A cautionary tale and a celebration of personal empowerment, Down the Rabbit Hole reminds us of the importance of fighting for our dreams—and finding the life we deserve.
