BHSL’s Monthly Recommendations: April

Posted April 12th 2024

Check out Baylor Health Sciences Library’s April recommendations.

Some of the featured materials include:

  • Autism in heels : the untold story of a female life on the spectrum
    • At the age of thirty-five, Jennifer was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, and for the first time in her life, things made sense. Now, Jennifer exposes the constant struggle between carefully crafted persona and authentic existence, editing the autism script with wit, candor, passion, and power. Her journey is one of reverse-self-discovery not only as an Aspie but—more importantly—as a thoroughly modern woman.
  • How death becomes life : notes from a transplant surgeon
    • A gifted surgeon illuminates one of the most awe-inspiring achievements of modern-day medicine: the movement of organs between bodies. At the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Dr. Joshua Mezrich creates life from loss, transplanting organs from one body to another. In this intimate and profoundly moving work, he sheds light not only on the extraordinary field of transplantation that enables this kind of miracle to happen every day, but also on the incredible doctors, donors, and patients who are at the center of this near-unimaginable world.
  • The wrong end of the table : a mostly comic memoir of a Muslim Arab American woman just trying to fit in
    • What happens when a shy, awkward Arab girl with a weird name and an unfortunate propensity toward facial hair is uprooted from her comfortable homeland of Iraq, and thrust into the cold, alien town of Columbus, Ohio, with its Egg McMuffins, Barbie dolls, and kids playing doctor everywhere? This is Ayser Salman’s story.
  • The Tea Book
    • A guide to tea explores the blends, tastings, and ceremonies from around the world, presents the health benefits of the beverage, and provides recipes for different types of tea and foods and other drinks incorporating it.
