An unusual and uncommonly moving family memoir, with a twist that give new meaning to hindsight, insight, and forgiveness. The author is face blind--that is, she has prosopagnosia, a rare neurological condition that prevents her from reliably recognizing people's faces. Growing up, unaware of the reason for her perpetual confusion and anxiety, she took what cues she could from speech, hairstyle, and gait. But she sometimes kissed a stranger, thinking he was her boyfriend, or failed to recognize...

Author Nick Trout is back with another touching story from the front lines of veterinary medicine--a tale of two dogs who forever changed the way he thought about life, death, fate and love. His book underscores the profound bond we have with the animals in our lives and the responsibility he carries as their healer. Certainly Dr. Trout has an impressive array of fancy equipment, training and skills at his disposable, but his most important tool (as he powerfully illustrates here) is a...

"It started as a burglary. That would have been bad enough. But when the masked intruder forced Dr. Olson at gunpoint to open his safe, the doctor knew he was really in trouble. In the safe were two DVDs, private movies he had made of those girls he had kidnapped...and killed. Suddenly the burglary became blackmail. But blackmailing a serial killer can be a dangerous game. Especially when he's as smart--and good with a scalpel--as Dr. Olson."--p. [4] of cover
