Driving While Blind took me nearly 10 years to write, as I am not a writer by profession. I simply feel that the message needs to be available to our young drivers. I started this when two of my daughter's High School classmates were killed in a crash. That incident made me think that we, as adults and parents, need to do a better job of teaching our kids how to drive. Driving While Blind is a quick, easy and informative read that I tried to write with a bit of levity...based on my own personal experiences as a road warrior. I have driven somewhere near, or just over a million miles and I've done that completely crash free! I have also been in the automotive industry for most of my adult life, this has given me the opportunity to be trained by professional SCCA drivers on several occasions. What makes me qualified to write this book? Nothing...and everything. Hopefully, by writing this book, I will ultimately save lives....if I save just one, well then, I have been a complete success! Happy & Safe Motoring!

Learn the shocking truth how some teens deal with mounting insecurities. Discover the repercussions that can happen when parents are blinded to performance pressures facing youngsters, particularly when entering chaotic adolescence. My narrative is a heartfelt, sometimes humorous journal detailing the nurturing of my daughter from birth through her turbulent adolescent years. The intensity of her stormy evolution was inflamed by nine years in highly competitive professional dance environments and resulted in her self-destructive acting out behavior. It's a retrospective chronicle providing an insightful glimpse of what may await unsuspeting parents with youngsters in competitive activities. What happened to us can happen to any well-intentioned family with children who are pushed to perform in academics, the arts, or athletics.

This is a real life espionage story. The author of this biography was lucky to live very unruly times in his country of origin, Cuba, during the last 71 years. He was able to see the history of those years from a different point of view: from his fight as a revolutionary to becoming a master spy. As a young man he experience the passion of making a revolution, and as a mature man he felt the moral depression that cause him the realization that the deaths of his comrades were in vain. In the process he discovered new, beautiful and rich countries and became homesick for many years. He saw himself as a hero, loved and admired by his family and his fellow citizens at the beginning of his adult life, and now sees himself as an old man waiting for death as a loner and deserter of his youth's ideals. This is a real life story about a human being trapped sometimes by his own decisions and in other occasions by the ironies of destiny, a person fighting to survive, and at the same time loving and taking care of his family the best he could. This is a real life story about political deceive and human miseries; about how one can fool oneself in life regarding what is right or wrong. But it is also the confirmation that at times one can achieve a goal if one does try hard.

At a ceremony announcing the completion of the first draft of the human genome in 2000, President Bill Clinton declared, "I believe one of the great truths to emerge from this triumphant expedition inside the human genome is that in genetic terms, all human beings, regardless of race, are more than 99.9 percent the same." Yet despite this declaration of unity, biomedical research has focused increasingly on mapping that.1 percent of difference, particularly as it relates to race. This trend is exemplified by the drug BiDil. Approved by the FDA in 2005 as the first drug with a race-specific indication on its label, BiDil was originally touted as a pathbreaking therapy to treat heart failure in black patients and help underserved populations. Upon closer examination, however, Jonathan Kahn reveals a far more complex story. At the most basic level, BiDil became racial through legal maneuvering and commercial pressure as much as through medical understandings of how the drug worked. Using BiDil as a central case study, Kahn broadly examines the legal and commercial imperatives driving the expanding role of race in biomedicine, even as scientific advances in genomics could render the issue irrelevant. He surveys the distinct politics informing the use of race in medicine and the very real health disparities caused by racism and social injustice that are now being cast as a mere function of genetic difference. Calling for a more reasoned approach to using race in biomedical research and practice, Kahn asks readers to recognize that, just as genetics is a complex field requiring sensitivity and expertise, so too is race, particularly in the field of biomedicine.

A practical handbook for people who want to be safe and do something. Racial profiling does happen. And while cases where victims find themselves looking down the barrel of a policeman's gun make the six o'clock news, dozens of less extreme, yet troubling, examples occur every day. Cabs that whiz by only to be seen stopping for "safer"-looking people just up the block; being asked for multiple pieces of identification when making purchases with credit cards; being followed around a department store by salespeople and security while never being asked if they need any assistance; being detained for hours and extensively searched in an airport or train station--Driving While Black clearly defines the system officially known as CARD (class, age, race, dress) and offers advice about how to handle potentially life-threatening situations with the police, as well as recourse for readers who suspect their civil rights have been denied due to racial profiling. A book written to save lives, Driving While Black is not just for people of color, but for anyone who likes to wear a baseball cap, baggy jeans, sneakers, and a tee shirt and finds they are often treated like a "suspect."
