DJ is David McLean's eldest grandson, so it stands to reason that he be the one to scatter his beloved grandfather's ashes. At least that's how DJ sees it. He's always been the best at everything – sports, school, looking after his fatherless family – so climbing Kilimanjaro is just another thing he'll accomplish almost effortlessly. Or so he thinks, until he arrives in Tanzania and everything starts to go wrong. He's detained at immigration, he gets robbed, his climbing group includes an old lady and he gets stuck with the first ever female porter. Forced to go polepole (slowly), DJ finds out the hard way that youth, fitness level and drive have nothing to do with success on the mountain – or in life.

Why can salamanders grow new legs, and young children grow new finger tips, but adult humans can't regenerate? What is the electricity that flows through the human body? Is it the same thing that the Chinese call Qi? If so, what does Chinese medicine know, that western medicine ignores? Dan Keown's highly accessible, witty, and original book shows how western medicine validates the theories of Chinese medicine, and how Chinese medicine explains the mysteries of the body that western medicine largely ignores. He explains the generative force of embryology, how the hearts of two people in love (or in scientific terms `quantum entanglement') truly beat as one, how a cheating heart is also an ill heart (which is why men are twice as likely to die of a sudden heart attack with their mistress than with their wife), how neural crest cells determine our lifespan, and why Proust's madeleines evoked the memories they did. The book shows how the theories of western and Chinese medicine support each other, and how the integrated theory enlarges our understanding of how bodies work on every level. Full of good stories and surprising details, Dan Keown's book is essential reading for anyone who has ever wanted to know how the body really works.

"For centuries, the Chinese have tapped the five elemental forces of nature - wood, fire, earth, metal, and water - to strengthen their bodies and minds. Not superstition, but rather a discipline rooted in observation and experiment, the Chinese approach to health is finding increased acceptance in the Western world. Acupuncture, homeopathy, and holistic medicine are now widely practiced alternatives or adjuncts to the technological approaches of the West." "Now Chinese Medicine for Beginners makes this time-tested tradition accessible to you. Whether you are simply seeking the proper yin-yang balance in your own life or are a practitioner seeking alternative treatments for those in your care, this book can show you the way."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
