September eh? Labour day weekend. It just so happens that a number of the new releases out currently have to do with ageing and related topics. So some of them are featured below. 

We are looking at opening for browsing soon. We will broadcast the date far and wide once we are sure we've ironed out most of the wrinkles. The browsing hours will be reduced from normal and there will be a limit of three customers at a time. More on that soon.

It has been difficult to gauge and plan the unlocking of our door while still making sure the normal day to day this-and-thats continue to be attended to. At the top of that list is you and your orders and enquiries. We thank you very much for keeping us busy in these ways. This enables us to exist in order to work at reopening to browsing. Your support of Caversham is greatly appreciated. You are mighty and wonderful. Yes you are. Onward!

-Newsletter Neil

P.S. Xena took a break from the limelight this time 'round. She is sore at me because she discovered that meat is stored in the freezer and has taken to sitting on top of the chest freezer as a form of stakeout. Probably also in hopes of a steak-out. Not only has no meat emerged but she has no idea how much she would not appreciate frozen meat. So she is sore at me and withholding her image.

Belonging: A Relationship-Based Approach for Trauma-Informed Education
Sian Phillips, Deni Melim, and Daniel Hughes

The call for trauma-informed education is growing as the profound impact trauma has for the children’s ability to learn in traditional classrooms is recognized. For children who have experienced abuse and neglect their behavior is often highly reactive, aggressive, withdrawn or unmotivated. They struggle to learn, to make positive relationships or be influenced positively by teachers and school staff. Students become more and more at risk for mental health difficulties. Teachers become more and more frustrated and discouraged as they attempt to teach this vulnerable group of students. [More. . .]

Formations of the Unconscious: The Seminar of Jacques Lacan, Book V
Jacques Lacan

Now in paperback!
When I decided to explore the question of Witz, or wit, with you this year, I undertook a small enquiry. It will come as no surprise at all that I began by questioning a poet. This is a poet who introduces the dimension of an especially playful wit that runs through his work, as much in his prose as in more poetic forms, and which he brings into play even when he happens to be talking about mathematics, for he is also a mathematician. I am referring to Raymond Queneau. While we were exchanging our first remarks on the matter he told me a joke. It’s a joke about exams, about the university entrance exams, if you like.[More. . .]

The Age of Ageing Better?: A Manifesto for Our Future
Anna Dixon

The Age of Ageing Better? takes a radically different view of what our aging society means. Dr Anna Dixon turns the misleading and depressing narrative of burden and massive extra cost of people living longer on its head and provides a refreshingly optimistic view of how everyone could enjoy a better later life.
This book shines a spotlight on how as a society we're failing to respond to aging--and what needs to change to ensure later lives become better for everyone. Examining key areas of society that need to change; including health, financial security, where and how people live, and social connections, Anna Dixon presents a strongly optimistic picture of how thinking differently could change the way we value later life in every sense. [More. . .]

Dementia: A Very Short Introduction
Kathleen Taylor

As more of us live longer, the fear of an old age devastated by brain diseases like dementia is growing. Many people are already facing the challenges posed by these progressive and terminal conditions, whether in person or because they are caring for loved ones. Dementia is now the fifth most
common cause of death across the world. It is small wonder that understanding, preventing, and finally curing these illnesses is now a global priority.
Recent advances in brain research have given scientists a better chance than ever of finding ways to help patients, carers, and clinicians dealing with dementia. Yet there is still no effective treatment. Why has progress been so slow? And what can we all do to reduce our chances of getting the
disease? [More. . .]

The End of Alzheimer's Program: The First Protocol to Enhance Cognition and Reverse Decline at Any Age
Dale Bredesen 

What we call Alzheimer's disease is actually a protective response to a wide variety of insults to the brain: inflammation, insulin resistance, toxins, infections, and inadequate levels of nutrients, hormones, and growth factors. Bredesen starts by having us figure out which of these insults we need to address and continues by laying out a personalized lifestyle plan. Focusing on the Ketoflex 12/3 Diet, which triggers ketosis and lets the brain restore itself with a minimum 12-hour fast, Dr. Bredesen drills down on restorative sleep, targeted supplementation, exercise, and brain training. [More. . .]

Aging with Agency: Building Resilience, Confronting Challenges, and Navigating Eldercare
Sandi Peters

Aging can bring new fears, challenges, and concerns. Loss of career, loved ones, or changing physical and cognitive abilities can leave us feeling isolated and scared. Sandi Peters shows us that growing older need not mean the end of personal growth. In fact, late adulthood can prove to be the most meaningful and transformative period of one's life. The key, says Peters, is the development of one's inner life, and with it a shift in one's relation to the aging process.  [More. . .]

The Deep History of Ourselves: The Four-Billion-Year Story of How We Got Conscious Brains
Joseph Ledoux

Renowned neuroscientist Joseph LeDoux digs into the natural history of life on earth to provide a new perspective on the similarities between us and our ancestors in deep time. This page-turning survey of the whole of terrestrial evolution sheds new light on how nervous systems evolved in animals, how the brain developed, and what it means to be human. [More. . .]

Our House is on Fire: Scenes of a Family and a Planet in Crisis
Malena and Beata Ernman, and Svante and Greta Thunberg

This is the story of a happy family whose life suddenly fell apart, never to be the same again. Of two devoted parents plunged into a waking nightmare as their eleven-year-old daughter Greta stopped speaking and eating, and her younger sister struggled to cope.

They desperately searched for answers, and began to see how their children's suffering reached far beyond medical diagnoses. This crisis was not theirs alone: they were burned-out people on a burned-out planet. And so they decided to act. [More. . .]

A History of My Brief Body
Billy-Ray Belcourt

Billy-Ray Belcourt's debut memoir opens with a tender letter to his kokum and memories of his early life in the hamlet of Joussard, Alberta, and on the Driftpile First Nation. From there, it expands to encompass the big and broken world around him, in all its complexity and contradictions: a legacy of colonial violence and the joy that flourishes in spite of it, first loves and first loves lost, sexual exploration and intimacy, and the act of writing as a survival instinct and a way to grieve. What emerges is not only a profound meditation on memory, gender, anger, shame, and ecstasy, but also the outline of a way forward.  [More. . .]
