All in My Head by Paula Kamen
Book DescriptionAt the age of twenty-four, Paula Kamen's life changed in an instant. While she was putting in her contacts, the left lens disturbed a constellation of nerves behind her eye. The pain was more piercing than that of any other headache she had ever experienced. More than a decade later, she still has a headache-the exact same headache. From surgery to a battery of Botox injections to a dousing of Lithuanian holy water, from a mountain of pharmaceutical products to aromatherapy and even a vibrating hat, All in My Head chronicles the sometimes frightening, usually absurd, and always ineffective remedies Kamen-like so many others-tried in order to relieve the pain. Beleaguered and frustrated by doctors who, frustrated themselves, periodically declared her pain psychosomatic, she came to understand the plight of the millions who suffer chronic pain in its many forms. Full of self-deprecating humor and razorsharp reporting, All in My Head is the remarkable story of patience, acceptance, and perseverance in the face of terrifying pain.

Finding Iris Chang, Hardback (October 2007)
Iris Chang's mysterious suicide in 2004, at the age of thirty-six didn't seem to make any sense. She had more to live for than most - fame and fortune, beauty, a husband and child. Some even wondered if the controversial author of "The Rape of Nanking" had been murdered. This book reveals the private woman behind the international celebrity.
