Everyone feels depressed sometimes. But a sustained lack of energy, a pro-found inability to enjoy life, or an overwhelming sadness that can render unbearable pain may be symptoms of something more. If you suffer from any of these symptoms, you may be one of 300 million people worldwide who have depression. While we often think of pharmaceutical treatments as the best way to treat depression, the truth is that for many people they either don’t work or lose their efficacy after a time. But there is hope in the form of three groundbreaking therapies: ketamine, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). In Brain Reboot, you’ll learn: 

  • How to get an accurate diagnosis
  • How to determine what treatment(s) are best for you
  • The efficacy of ketamine, TMS, and ECT
  • A clear summary of benefits and potential side effects
  • Step-by-step information for each treatment and FAQs
  • Tips for supplementing your recovery with exercise, nutrition, and sleep
  • Treatments on the horizon

Dr. Michael Henry’s life mission is to help anyone suffering with treatment-resistant depression; in Brain Reboot he provides everything you need to know about using ketamine, TMS, and ECT to regain your self and your life.

In Demystifying The Alzheimer’s Maze, Dr. Charles Wilcox addresses the hopes, fears, and uncertainties that almost everyone harbors as we age: “I want to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible...” and “I don’t want to be a burden to others...”
Drawing on his more than four decades as a research scientist, Dr. Wilcox assesses current knowledge and trends in Alzheimer’s diagnosis, treatment, and prevention, and gives you data-driven insights:

  • Take control of your modifiable risk factors;
  • Discuss medically-driven options with your physician;
  • Learn about innovative “Research Pioneers” who transcend conventional thinking;
  • Understand the promise of revolutionary leading-edge biomarkers;
  • Get down-to-earth explanations of lifestyle opportunities to optimize your brain’s health;
  • Get an informed look at current drug and medical device development;
  • Understand the promising convergence of Baby Boomers, diversity-equity-inclusion, and more than a hundred new chemical entities in the research pipeline;
  • See realistic evidence that we have arrived at a potentially pivotal point in the treatment, delay, and prevention of AD.

100% of all net proceeds are being donated to The Alzheimer’s Association.


Purpose: What Evolution and Human Nature Imply About the Meaning of Our Existence is broad in scope and treats a number of topics at the heart of what it means to be human, including free will, whether we are ultimately selfish or altruistic, and where we derive the deepest sources of meaning and satisfaction (and where this comes from in an evolutionary sense). By integrating principles from a variety of disciplines, Yale Associate Professor Samuel Wilkinson provides a framework of evolution that implies not only that there is an overarching purpose to our existence, but what this purpose is.

With respect to our evolution, nature seems to have endowed us with competing dispositions, what Wilkinson calls the dual potential of human nature. We are pulled in different directions: selfishness and altruism, aggression and cooperation, lust and love. When we couple this with the observation that we possess a measure of free will, all this strongly implies there is a universal purpose to our existence.

“Intellectually rigorous and spiritually compelling”
