A graceful and penetrating memoir interweaving the author’s descent into depression with a medical and cultural history of this illness. At the age of 27, married, living in New York, and working in book design, Mary Cregan gives birth to her first child, a daughter she names Anna. But it’s apparent that something is terribly wrong, and two days later, Anna dies - plunging Cregan into suicidal despair. Decades later, sustained by her work, a second marriage, and a son, Cregan reflects on this pivotal experience and attempts to make sense of it. She weaves together literature and research with details from her own ordeal - and the still visible scar of her suicide attempt - while also considering her life as part of the larger history of our understanding of depression. In fearless, candid prose, Cregan examines her psychotherapy alongside early treatments of melancholia, weighs the benefits of shock treatment against its terrifying pop culture depictions, explores the controversy around antidepressants and how little we know about them - even as she acknowledges that the medication saved her life - and sifts through the history of the hospital where her recovery began. Perceptive, intimate, and elegantly written, The Scar vividly depicts the pain and ongoing stigma of clinical depression, giving greater insight into its management and offering hope for those who are suffering. 1.

For over two decades, author Khafra K Om-Ra-Seti has been closely following many of the issues discussed in Global Economic Boom and Bust Cycles. As a self-proclaimed futurist and economic thinker, Khafra sees a world bordering on economic calamity but also understands that our world has the technological genius to create the conditions for a massive transformation after a period of purgatory. In biblical terms, the author informs us, ´´No one knows the hour or the day when the final reckoning will begin.´´ The central thesis of this book is to examine the power and massive influence of Boom and Bust Cycles on a global scale; a parallel mission is to also examine elements, technologies and systems that will give rise to a new era during our next recovery phase. 1.
