We live in an age of paranoia, bombarded daily by the media about the dangers of infectious microbes and viruses that threaten our very existence. The pharmaceutical and biotech industries insist that we are in a continuous state of war with our microbes and we have to protect ourselves with their elaborate weapons of microbial destruction. But do we really need them? Each of our bodies is teeming with trillions of microbes and viruses. Many of them are normal lifetime residents that do us no harm. In fact, some of them are essential to our health. Microbes and viruses were on the planet long before humans appeared, and we must learn to live in harmony with them. Professor Hudson takes us on a fascinating journey into the world of microbes and viruses, and puts things into perspective in a nontechnical, lighthearted exploration of this amazing microcosm within us all.

Andrew New York Times and Wall Street Journal Best-selling author of the Missed Fortune book series Quotes from the Book – School rarely prepares us completely for real life. The sting of that statement hits doctors harder than most. – Just as a house cannot stand without a strong foundation, the chiropractic office cannot long survive without a strong doctor/leader. They are the one who possesses the infectious personality, yet still manages to demand respect. – The principles that I cover are not only for chiropractors, but for anyone wishing to expand any business successfully. The principles that I talk about have aided veterinarians, massage therapists, and acupuncturists. – We are going through some tough times and we have to become stronger if we are to survive this new economy. – The first rule of business is that your business is not about you. It is not even about your product or service. It is about your customers. – Of all of the people whom I have helped grow over the years, I can say that my hardest battle has been teaching people the concept of change. Not only is change hard work, which brings out our essence of laziness, it also means admitting we were wrong — and that can be ego shattering. – I believe it takes great courage to ask for help. To want a better life for their family and expose their office to me takes guts. – We all have a self-worth. Some of us believe that we are worth $50,000 a year while others will settle for nothing less than $5,000,000 a year. When we come close to breaking that barrier, we will generally do something to sabotage our growth. – I can come into his or her office and give a 50% increase in patient volume and a 100% increase in collections.

Introducing William Kenly, author of The Dogs of Cancer

“”The Dogs of Cancer” is the third in the “Dogs” series and I still get a rush when I see that e-mail announcing that the book is published. Thank you Outskirts, and special thanks to Jennifer, my Author Representative. Navigating through this on-line publishing for someone (like me) who is only semi-computer literate is not without its bumps. But everytime I was stuck, Jennifer was always there quickly and with just the answer I needed. She had very good suggestions, most of which I heeded, and I am looking forward to publishing my next book, the fourth and last in the “Dogs” series, “The Dogs of Business”, probably early next year. Outskirts Press has a well-thought out process with almost unlimited options for the author, and is a great choice for any author trying to decide among publishers.”

William Kenly is also the author of the highly acclaimed The Dogs of Divorce (2010) and The Dogs of Luck (2012). The Dogs of Business is due out in 2014. Kenly was diagnosed with MTC in 2008 and writes frequently on the subject. He and his wife live north of Boston in their empty-nest home abutting a state park. They enjoy biking, kayaking, skiing, traveling, and watching their four 20-something-year-old children start their own adult lives. Contact the author at

Product description…

“The Dogs of Cancer” is a book of hope. While it is about a specific and fairly rare form of Thyroid Cancer, Medullary Thyroid Cancer, in a larger sense it is about all cancers. There is a chapter on: 1. General, holistic understanding of cancer, including nutrition and environment but especially about the recently established causal role that stress plays in developing cancers. 2. Another chapter is on “Cancer Humor”, that out-of-the-box brand of humor that only people facing their own mortality can enjoy. 3. An important chapter about caregivers elegantly brings to light the psychological and emotional pressures on a cancer person’s primary support. 4. A favorite chapter, and it’s more of a rant, is about the things people say, usually with the best of intentions, to someone with cancer. “Medullary Thyroid Cancer”. These three words changed author William Kenly’s life as he began a very intimate journey of personal discovery. Some friends would move closer, some would distance themselves. Some people would open up and share their deepest secrets because he now belonged to their “meddie” club, and other people would move against him, driven by the bully inside as they saw a vulnerable target. Kenly suffered at the hands of incompetent doctors having unnecessary procedures and treatments. He was steered away from nutrition and other alternative medical treatments, but he also met doctors whose advice about this rare disease was insightful to the point of ethereal vision. The Dogs of Cancer is a courageously open and uplifting personal exploration of cancer and its effects on not only the cancer patient but the lives of those around him. The book explores dealing with cancer, and MTC in particular, but it also delves into the rewards of spiritual growth. The reader will discover glimpses of an inner god-consciousness, a spirit that leaps from the part of us that routinely handles the everyday triumphs and tragedies, and connects the day-to-day routine with universal energy and understanding. This beautifully written memoir assures the reader that although “cancer sucks,” it can lead to a better understanding of self and the universe that surrounds us.
