Dan Morain: Kamala’s Way

There’s very little that’s conventional about Kamala Harris, and yet her personal story also represents the best of America. She grew up the eldest daughter of a single mother, a no-nonsense cancer researcher who emigrated from India at the age of nineteen in search of a better education. She and her husband, an accomplished economist from Jamaica, split up when Kamala was only five.

The Kamala Harris the public knows today is tough, smart, quick-witted, and demanding. She’s a prosecutor—her one-liners are legendary—but she’s more reticent when it comes to sharing much about herself, even in her memoirs. Fortunately, former Los Angeles Times reporter Dan Morain has been there from the start.  He followed Harris’s 25 years of work and progression in California and shares with you the first in-depth biography of her special life journey.  Kamala’s Way is essential reading for all Americans curious about the woman standing by Joe Biden’s side.


Szendi Gábor: Immunerősítés belülről - Hogyan készítsük fel szervezetünket a védekezésre?

Gábor Szendi's new volume is based on scientific research and proves that the greatest enemy of our strong immune system is to be found in our western way of life, namely in our diet. Unfortunately, destructive lifestyles cannot be reversed with tablets alone.

His book describes the risks of food consumed every day and the problems they cause: high blood sugar and insulin levels, various inflammations. It presents the scientifically proven but perhaps lesser-known methods by which we can tackle even the most terrifying immunological diseases. Szendi claims that the underlying cause of all diseases, including immune dysfunction, is mitochondrial dysfunction, so an effective way to stimulate the immune system is to increase the number and performance of mitochondria.

The author elaborates on the nature of influenza pandemics and pays special attention to the complex and effective control of the coronavirus. It proves that the new epidemic has been made particularly destructive by our way of life, especially among the elderly, chronically ill people. It also deals with the fight against cancer in a separate chapter: reducing deuterium levels and the effectiveness of vitamin C infusion. According to Szendi, it is never too late to wake up and we can do a lot to help our immune system face various diseases.

Grecsó Krisztián: Mellettem elférsz

The heroes of Krisztián Grecsó's family novel believe in inheritance. They know that they were given a fate along with the genes. The protagonist - a man in his mid-thirties - watches himself anxiously, his own movements, every change in his body. His girlfriend leaves him, plus he gets entangled in a web of mysteries over the accidental revelation of a family secret. As he solves the puzzle and slowly learns about the actions of his family, he recognizes himself. He is more and more the protagonist in the impatient proposals, secret loves, the lonely anticipations of long years. After all, he received not only his movements, the color of his hair, his physique from the family, but also, if he pays close attention, his future. The so far diverging courses of life meet in today’s Budapest.

Mellettem elférsz was first published in 2011 and received the Aegon Art Award for Best Book of the Year. Since then, there have been dozens of new editions, selling thirty thousand copies and is one of the most read books in Hungary in recent years.

Nyáry Krisztián: Igazi hősök - 33 magyar

Krisztián Nyáry, the author of two success books in recent years, the literary love books Így szerettek ők, once again wrote true stories about real human destinies. Thirty-three Hungarian people from the 19th-20th century, who lived among us and whose lives or personal decisions are still exemplary to this day. They are the real heroes. There are well-known people like Laci Papp or Ignác Semmelweis, and lesser-known people like Oliver Halassy, ​​the world's first disabled Olympian, Vilma Hugonnai, the first Hungarian graduate woman, or captain László Ocskay, the Hungarian Schindler.

"I'm interested in human destinies; it’s what I write about. In my previous two books, I talked about how love shapes human destiny. Now, I write about how personal decisions can make someone a hero. The 33 Hungarians in the book are real heroes who made good decisions at the right moment and were able to stick to their decisions.  Heroes, who chose the harder path and represented the truth while remaining in minority.  Or simply dared to follow their own path, setting an example to others.  Choosing them was entirely subjective, they are my personal heroes. " Krisztián Nyáry
