Machine de guerre by Michael Hastings Book Resume:

Le livre qui a inspiré War machine, visible sur Netflix. Tout commence en 2010 quand Michael Hastings, alors reporter pour Rolling Stone, publie un article qui fera l'effet d'une bombe : "The Runaway General', le portrait au vitriol du général Stanley McChrystal, commandant des forces armées en Afghanistan. Sans filtre, il revendique sans ménagement son mépris pour le président Obama et son administration. Arrogant, égocentrique, ce qu'il convoite avant tout c'est de faire la une du magazine – et pourquoi pas aux côtés d'une Lady Gaga, tant qu'il fait les gros titres. Loin d'imaginer les conséquences de cette célébrité soudaine, McChrystal est tout bonnement éjecté manu militari par son commander in chief humilié et inquiet de ses élucubrations fantasques. Machine de guerre débute à l'endroit même où s'arrête la carrière du général : dans les rangs d'une armée déboussolée et d'un conflit englué et voué à l'échec. Avec une plume et un regard affutés, Michael Hastings nous livre le récit de cette guerre sans fin : officiers mégalos, scènes orgiaques, manipulations des drones et des stratégies militaires, rien n'est passé sous silence – pour le meilleur et surtout pour le pire.

Here is the missing link in Essential Oil literature, the first modern work written by the man who coined the word 'Aromatherapy.' In July 1910 René- Maurice Gattefossé discovered the healing properties of lavender oil after severely burning his hands in a laboratory explosion. This led him into a lifetime of research into Essential Oils. His remarkable book was first published in 1937 and has been out of print for many years. Now translated, it has been edited by Robert Tisserand, author of three books on aromatherapy (including the best-seller, The Art of Aromatherapy), editorial adviser of the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine and editor of The International Journal of Aromatherapy. The book is a fascinating blend of ancient and modern knowledge and aromatherapists will find it an essential tool of reference. Extensive notes are provided by Robert Tisserand at the back of the book. Chapters include those on human smells and animal smells, toxicity, the properties of essential oils and their constituents, the treatment of many diseases, and over fifty case studies from doctors.

La Saison des feux by Celeste NG Book Resume:

Quand le voile des apparences ne peut être déchiré, il faut parfois y mettre le feu. À Shaker Heights, banlieue riche et tranquille de Cleveland, tout est soigneusement planifié pour le bonheur des résidents. Rien ne dépasse, rien ne déborde, à l'image de l'existence parfaitement réglée d'Elena Richardson, femme au foyer exemplaire. Lorsque Mia Warren, une mère célibataire et bohème, vient s'installer dans cette bulle idyllique avec sa fille Pearl, les relations avec la famille Richardson sont d'abord chaleureuses. Mais peu à peu, leur présence commence à mettre en péril l'entente qui règne entre les voisins. Et la tension monte dangereusement à Shaker Heights. Après Tout ce qu'on ne s'est jamais dit (Sonatine Éditions, 2016), Celeste Ng confirme avec ce deuxième roman son talent exceptionnel. Rarement le feu qui couve sous la surface policée des riches banlieues américaines aura été montré avec tant d'acuité. Cette comédie de mœurs, qui n'est pas sans rappeler l'univers de Laura Kasischke, se lit comme un thriller. Avec cette galerie de portraits de femmes plus poignants les uns que les autres, c'est aussi l'occasion pour l'auteur d'un constat d'une justesse étonnante sur les rapports sociaux et familiaux aujourd'hui.

Just the Essentials by Adina Grigore Book Resume:

The author of Skin Cleanse returns with a comprehensive guide to the ultimate ingredient for living an all-natural, plant-based lifestyle: essential oils. For millennia, essential oils have played a key role in health and beauty rituals. From references in the Bible (frankincense and myrrh) to Hippocrates (who documented the effects of oils from over 300 plants) to Ancient Egypt (Cleopatra pioneered the use of fragrance), essential oils have been revered throughout human history for their healing powers and their unparalleled scent. But in modern times, they’ve often been misunderstood, underappreciated, even cast as "dangerous"—and relegated to the dusty shelves of health food stores. That is, until recently. Today they’re back in the spotlight as increasing numbers of consumers are looking for all-natural alternatives to skincare products and opting for fragrance-free detergents and soaps, natural remedies for common ailments, and toxin-free home cleaning solutions. Enter Adina Grigore, owner and founder of the wildly popular all-natural skincare line SW Basics. A former essential oil skeptic, Grigore learned everything she could about these potent plant-based compounds when she began formulating her products. And what she learned was that essential oils are some of the most powerful, healing, health-promoting compounds found in nature. That, and they smell pretty great too. In Just the Essentials, Grigore offers a 21st-century guide to these ancient oils, offering a fresh, fun, and authoritative overview of what they are and how they can be easily incorporated into anyone’s life. From plant-based medicine to all-natural skincare to safer and cleaner household products to aromatherapy, this handy and entertaining guide provides detailed advice for a wide array of oils, safety guidelines, and a range of do-it-yourself recipes to get started. Inside you'll discover such fun facts as: Tea tree oil is a powerful antibacterial that is proven to be as effective for treating acne as benzoyl peroxide; it also kills oral bacteria and is a life-saver for tooth infections. Cinnamon oil is a circulation-booster that helps to ease everyday aches and pains as well as headaches (even migraines). Peppermint oil is brimming with antimicrobial properties; peppermint oil can be used for everything from alleviating digestive problems to cleaning your kitchen counters. With lists of the best oils for beginners; instructions for diffusing and safe handling; and DIY recipes from dish soap to toothpaste to facial masks, Just the Essentials makes it easy and enjoyable to reap the many benefits of these pure plant extracts.

Trease and Evans' Pharmacognosy by William Charles Evans Book Resume:

This encyclopedic reference work on pharmacognosy covers the study of those natural substances, principally plants, that find a use in medicine. Its popularity and longevity stem from the book's balance between classical (crude and powdered drugs' characterization and examination) and modern (phytochemistry and pharmacology) aspects of this branch of science, as well as the editor's recognition in recent years of the growing importance of complementary medicines, including herbal, homeopathic and aromatherapy. No other book provides such a wealth of detail. A reservoir of knowledge in a field where there is a resurgence of interest - plants as a source of drugs are of growing interest both in complementary medicine fields and in the pharmaceutical industry in their search for new 'lead compounds'. Dr Evans has been associated with the book for over 20 years and is a recognised authority in all parts of the world where pharmacognosy is studied, his knowledge and grasp of the subject matter is unique. Meticulously referenced and kept up to date by the editor, new contributors brought in to cover new areas. New chapter on 'Neuroceuticals'. Addition of many new compounds recently added to British Pharmacopoeia as a result of European harmonisation. Considers development in legal control and standardisation of plant materials previously regarded as 'herbal medicines'. More on the study of safety and efficacy of Chinese and Asian drugs. Quality control issues updated in line with latest guidelines (BP 2007).
