The Addicted Brain: Why We Abuse Drugs, Alcohol, and Nicotine by Michael Kuhar is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and has received an average user rating of 4 out of 5 stars based on 5 customer reviews.  You can pick up your free copy by clicking here or typing in http://amzn.to/uhNarA into your computer’s web browser.

Category: Education

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Addiction destroys lives. In The Addicted Brain, a leading neuroscientist explains how and why this happens–and presents advances in treatment and prevention. Using breathtaking brain imagery and other research, Michael Kuhar, Ph.D., shows the powerful, long-term brain changes that drugs can cause, revealing why it can be so difficult for addicts to escape their grip.

In plain English, Kuhar describes why some people are far more susceptible to addiction than others. He illuminates striking neural similarities between drugs and other pleasures potentially capable of causing abuse or addiction–including alcohol, gambling, sex, caffeine, and even Internet overuse. Finally, he outlines the 12 characteristics most often associated with successful treatment.

Authoritative and easy to understand, The Addicted Brain offers today’s most up-to-date scientific explanation of addiction–and what addicts, their families, and society can do about it.

11 Free Books from the Amazon Kindle Store

Here’s something a little different, and is something I have thought of doing with the content of my other blogs (but who the heck has enough time these days?): Amazon has released 11 daily calendars for free this morning in the Kindle store.  Perusing a couple of them, they appear very similar to the paper tear-off calendars many of us have or receive as gifts; some of them are quite funny from the ones I looked at this morning.

I imagine several of these will look great on the Kindle Fire which will be in a lot of our hands next week – while you may not have your Kindle Fire today, it might be a good idea to grab the ones with cartoons in them now as there is no guarantee they will be available for free next week.  Just grab it now, and when the Fire is in your hands add it to the Fire’s library.  As usual, I don’t know how long these will be offered for free so if you are interested in any or all of them please grab them now. Here they are, in no particular order:

Math for Grownups Free from Amazon Kindle Store

Math for Grownups by Laura Laing is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and has received a perfect 5 out of 5 stars based on 4 customer reviews; this sounds like something I need as I try to remember how to review junior high math!  You can pick up your free copy by clicking here or typing in http://amzn.to/oiQ6hk into your computer’s web browser.

Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

Ever wish you’d paid more attention in math class? From third grade to senior year of high school, it went in one ear and out the other, didn’t it?

But now you’re staring at the new washer and dryer, trying to figure out the percentage of sales tax on the purchase price. You multiply something by something, right? Or you’re scratching your head, wondering how to compute the odds that your football team will take next Sunday’s game. You’re pretty sure that involved ratios. The problem is, you can’t quite remember.

Here you get an adult refresher and real-life context–with examples ranging from how to figure out how many shingles it takes to re-roof the garage to the formula for resizing Mom’s tomato sauce recipe for your entire family.

Forget higher calculus–you just need an open mind. And with this practical guide, math can stop being scary and start being useful
