Sexually Transmitted Diseases are everyone's concern. In the United States, more than 12 million new cases of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) occur each year. Of the top 10 reportable diseases in the United States in 1995, five are STDs (chlamydial infection, gonorrhea, AIDS, primary and secondary syphilis, and hepatitis B virus infection). At least 3 million of of each year's new cases are among teen-agers. Approximately two-thirds of people who acquire STDs in the United States are younger than 25.

This book gives information primarily from official government medical sources on the most common STDs extant in the United States, including description of symptoms, pictures, what to do to reduce risk of exposure, and what to do if you think you might have been exposed. There is also a CD of instructor resources, with prepackaged presentations and more color clinical photos, as ISBN13 9781596300255. The full book is also available in inexpensive downloadable. formats such as PDF and Kindle.Companion websites give more information on related issues, such as, confidential testing and dating sites.

    Virginia Mayo- The Best Years of My Life Virginia Mayo as told to LC Van Savage  click here B004F9P8FE
    $3.99 Kindle price
    The Kindle version has a nice selection of family photos but does not include the movie stills and other photos with Hollywood celebrities that are in the paperback version.
    Virginia Clara Jones, born in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1920, never wanted to play the usual childhood games with her chums; she only wanted to "play show."  And indeed as a child, she did appear in many shows in and around St. Louis.
    As Virginia grew into her teen years, she began to dream of dancing and singing at the "Muny Opera" in St. Louis, and eventually she achieved that. From there, the beautiful teenager joined a Vaudeville troupe in a very successful act called "Pansy the Horse," and it was then that Virginia Jones became Virginia Mayo.
    Virginia went from the Muny, to Vaudeville, to films and the stage, but it was in films where the world saw and learned to love her the most.  Equally talented in all acting  genres, Virginia's musicals are her most memorable and were the ones she loved, and loved to perform in, above all others.
    Her talent and beauty were so dazzling, the Sultan of Morocco was prompted to send a letter to the studio heads of Warner Brothers saying "Virginia Mayo is tangible proof of the existence of God."
    "I just put my head down and did the work. All I ever wanted in my life was to do the work."  This became her show business credo. Virginia Mayo "played show," did the work and did it well.

    MamaSquad! Clarence Wall

    $8.97 Kindle price
     Have you ever watched a poorly-executed football game or some other exhibition of masculine strength and skill gone awry and thought to yourself— "A bunch of little old ladies could have done a better job!"? 
    Clarence Wall has the kind of wayward mind that can pick up that fumbled thought and run it down the field into a whole gameful of entertaining events. 
    Thus was born MamaSquad! 
    Did you ever wonder what might happen if a group of cantankerous old ladies got tangled up in a special forces mission? Read this hilarious novel to find out. 
    Clarence Wall drew on his eclectic background for feasible twists. He is the right person to have written this adventure. After years of practical enlightenment in the military, mostly in Army Intelligence and as a technical writer, he further tuned his understanding through activities as a stand-up comedian and church choir member (usually not at the same time). Clarence married wife Virginia (Ginny) in 1980, and enjoys life in Escondido, California with daughter Miranda (Mandy), 16, son Jason, 13, two dogs, Samson & Maximillian (Max), two Cats, Miss Tabby & Angel Pus.

    The Ghost Of A Flea
    Kindle $2.99 B003WQBD96
    Time: 1975. 
    Location:  New York City.

    The murder of Roger’s musician friend, Gideon Whiting, turns Roger’s world up-side-down.  His wife, Natalie, lies to him.  His best friend, Ted, lies to him.  His boss and U.S. Senate candidate, Charlie Holt, lies to him. And Lieutenant Tarrington, a homicide detective, is convinced Roger killed Gideon—but is Tarrington who he claims to be, or is he lying, too?

    Peggy Curtis, the blond bombshell who dropped into Roger’s life one snowy night after he left Gideon’s apartment, might be the only person who can unravel the Gordian knot facing Roger, yet she has serious credibility problems, and is the last person he would want to rely on with his life and freedom on the line.

    The drug cartel masterminding much of the chaos seeks an address book it thinks Roger took from Gideon.  As their ruthless pursuit intensifies, the police learn of the book and join the chase.  The problem is, Roger doesn’t have what they want and he must get it before they decide he is expendable.

    The Mbili are the ruling class.  The Ine the underclass.  In a land populated by these grotesque mutants, one thing is clear.  They will never live together in peace.  It is not peace the Mbili seek.  It is total domination. 
    When Paul Henry, an accountant for an international accounting firm, decides to emigrate to Uhuru, he knows only that he can never return once exposed to  the deadly Lassa fever, that Oneida, the love of his life, is scheduled to join him in two weeks, and that his life is pretty damn good.  He is disavowed of the latter even  before Uhuruan Airways Flight 100 lands in Mombasa, when he sees things out the window of the unmanned Tristar that challenge his sanity.
    Perfect Love- A Novel Mary Harvatich

    B004JN0EN2 Kindle Price $5.97

    Becky was born in the summer of 1957. She was left at Sacred Heart orphanage in Birmingham, Alabama when she was almost two years old. 
    Milko James Sandi was almost three years older than Becky and was abandoned at the same orphanage when he was only a few hours old.
    Both were sent from the orphanage to live with the same foster parents when they were five years old.
    Becky became pregnant by Milko when she was almost thirteen. They were forced to separate. Milko was transferred to a boys' home in St. Louis, where he lived for more than twenty years before returning to Birmingham.
    Becky had a baby girl and gave her up for adoption. By this time the foster parents had become very fond of Becky Coates, although they never adopted her. Twenty years later she is alone, and living in the same house, even though the foster parents are deceased.
    When reunited just hours after their foster mother's funeral, they rediscover the Perfect Love they had so many years ago, but can even Perfect Love endure the many changes that have taken place in their lives?
    What Readers are saying about Perfect Love:
    "Sometimes, when you least expect it—a gift comes to you— Perfect Love is such a gift! With only my small flashlight and my one sighted right eye, I read Perfect Love in fifteen hours—nonstop! Not only 
    did Mary Harvatich capture true life, but she's given it a heartfelt desire that is needed in today's society— More stories, Mary—Please!! Thank you Mary!!"
    Marguerite Cannges, St. Louis reader
    "I was pleasantly surprised with the realistic feeling it had in the settings and the characters.  I could actually see these characters as Ms. Harvatich described them in her book.  With the turning of every page I found more pleasure in each and every character and situation that Perfect Love presented."
    -Jackie M. Dodson, St. Louis, Missouri
    "Once you started the book you just didn't want to put it down until it was finished.  I look forward to the next book to find out what happens with Milko and Becky after they are married.
    Quin Littleton, AVP
    "This is a beautiful love story that would make a good movie. This is the kind of stories that Hallmark Hall of Fame  usually show."
    -Dee Taylor
    "Perfect Love is the most unusual inspirational, precious love story about teenagers that I have ever read. It's a love story for everybody, but especially for orphans. The author captures the essence of who those orphans are and what they are like. ... This novel isn't just a love story. Not only is it scholarly written, it's educational as well."

    50 Things
    You didn't Learn in School But Should Have
    John Naese
    B004J4X3RU Kindle $8.97
    50 Things will let you in on the stuff that your high school teachers did not have time to teach you - or did not want you to know.
    On what is covered in history class...
    "Some high school students also get a year of world history, but that is usually contained in a "World Cultures" class, which goes into great detail about village life in the Amazon jungle, but does not tell you a lot you need to know to understand the sweep and grandeur of world history." 
    On democracy...
    "The Romans, always stealing from the Greeks their best ideas, came up with the Roman Republic, which had senators representing the interests of groups of voters.  This, of course, worked great until Julius Caesar came along and made the place a dictatorship." 
    On corporations...
    "Corporations respond to demand for what they sell.  If there is greater demand, they hire more workers.  When demand lessens, they lay off some workers.  It's called the business cycle, not "the evil corporate plot to abuse America's workers." Read this, and you'll learn:
    • The US is not a democracy.
    • Electric cars pollute.
    • Corporations don't pay taxes.
    • The United States did not lose the Vietnam War.
    • All the important world news used to be covered in 15 minutes. 
    • Deaths in the US:  Ted Kennedy's car - 1;  US nuclear power plant accidents - 0.
    • Guns in civilian hands save many more lives than they take.
    It's meant to be provocative; it's meant to be an education.  But mostly, it's meant to be fun to read.  So have fun, enjoy, and learn something you probably didn't know.

    thriller about vengeance, love, courage--and getting one more
    chance! The story deals with mindlinks, thought transference,
    reincarnation and mindless obedience to a father's demonic will.

    who lost the use of her legs in a mysterious car accident that
    killed her husband, Russ. For reasons she doesn't understand,
    her astral body is being called upon to witness a series of
    brutal slayings. As the story unfolds, it is revealed that she
    either knew these victims directly or they were related to people
    she or her husband knew.

    Socrates Litsios received his Doctorate of Science degree from MIT in 1963. He joined the World Health Organization in Geneva Switzerland in1967 as Chief of the Operational Reseach Unit in the Division of Research in Epidemiology and Communications Science. When he retired in 1997 he occupied the position of Senior Scientist with the Control of Tropical Diseases Program.
    Early Reviews of Litsios' Plague Legends
    "This finely crafted, scholarly book traces the long 2000 years of western civilization during which philosophy, literature, and the arts flourished but medical science remained a confused, often dangerous, body of ignorance.... Litsios' book presents an expert account of what the discovery of microbes and their pathogenic potentials meant to human health."
    Robert S. Desowitz, PhD, DSc, Emeritus Professor of Tropical Medicine and Medical Microbiology, University of Hawaii; Adjunct Professor of Epidemiology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
    "Plague Legends is a fascinating contribution to the history of medicine....
    "Plague Legends ... would be a very useful required volume in courses on the history of medicine. Perhaps more importantly, it should be read and discussed by students in schools of public health, where a deeper understanding of the origins of Public Health as a profession and as a broad set of academic topics would be highly desirable."

    I Like to Run Too: Two Decades of Sitting. A Memoir of Growing Up with a Physical Disability Stacy Zoern
    B004JN0CPC Kindle Price $9.99
    Stacy Zoern lives in Austin, Texas, where she moved from Houston eight years ago to attend college.
    She received her B.A. in philosophy and psychology from the University of Texas and then went on to get a J.D. from the University of Texas School of Law.
    She is now practicing law for an intellectual property firm, and handling disability discrimination cases on the side.
    "Having a disability has meant a life filled with difficulties.  It is almost every day that I face a new challenge, an obstacle, an ignorant, prejudiced person, a physical barrier, or an unjust situation having to do with my disability.  On bad days, I encounter more than one of these.  I always have a disability, every moment of every day, and it affects everything I do on some level.  Whether I am following the ramped course to class on my college campus, deciding where to go for lunch, or just going around in public, where everyone always stares at me, my disability is in the back of my mind.  I wrote the following because I want to share my experiences with people who have disabilities so they can relate, but also with people who have never had a disability or perhaps never even known anyone with one, so they can understand.  Even if we, as human beings, were only to have a slight understanding of each other, our interactions would be exponentially more fruitful than if we were to remain submersed in ignorance.   My roommate was at a party not long ago and was talking to a guy when I came up in the conversation.  When she told him that she helped me and further, when the conversation led to the camp for children with disabilities that she volunteers at, he replied that she must be a good Samaritan, he could “never hang around handicapped people so much.”  I don’t know who he is, or how widely those feelings reach across the population, but I have to do what I can to change that attitude.  The other day someone was parked in front of the ramp at my dorm and I had to go all the way down the street to get up the curb.  When I came back around, the girls who had blocked the ramp were just getting into their car.  I went up to their window and told them that I had just gone all the way down the street because they had blocked the ramp, the ramp right next to the HUGE sign that says DO NOT BLOCK RAMP.  They apologized and when I turned around, my parents, who were still across the street unloading the van, saw the girls start to laugh.  Was something funny?  Please God, do not tell me that is my place in this world.  It is also important to me that I make something very clear to everyone reading about my life.  The events that I talk about, despite what they may seem, are not unfortunate.  Though I have wished at times to experience some of the things that I am missing, I have never regretted having a disability.  Just like everything else about me, my disability has in part made me who I am.  I think about the things that have happened in my life solely because of my disability, and I know that my life would be a completely different one if I spent it walking around.  I wouldn’t want a completely different life.  Life is difficult and sometimes filled with tragedy.  It is pointless to complain about the things that go “wrong” because the ideal picture of life that many people hold on to isn’t really what life is at all.  These “wrongs” are life.  Though mine may be filled with a disability, it is also filled with love, ambition, and hope.  What I hope for mostly is to help people see disability differently.  Truthfully, I can’t help but to smile about most of the obstacles I encounter.  My family and I have spent many hours in hysterical laughter about the situations we find ourselves in.  So, I suppose in a way, the things in my life that arise because of my disability are a form of entertainment.  So be informed, be given a new perspective, and be entertained."

    Have you ever watched a poorly-executed football game or some other exhibition of masculine strength and skill gone awry and thought to yourself— "A bunch of little old ladies could have done a better job!"? 
    Clarence Wall has the kind of wayward mind that can pick up that fumbled thought and run it down the field into a whole gameful of entertaining events.

    Growing up on Route 66ISBN: 1-888725-31-1    Growing Up on Route 66--a novel by Michael Lund (BeachHouse Books-2000)  $14.95 Growing Up On Route 66, a novel, is set in a Missouri small town along  “America’s Main Street.”   Most of the action takes place in a neighborhood known to the children growing up there as the "Circle.”  That time and place are remembered by the novel’s narrator as ideal, but closer scrutiny repeatedly--and often humorously--complicates this innocent picture. 
      In growing up we continually confront things that do not make sense.  Then, in sudden moments of inspiration the pieces come together.  For those growing up in the 1950s, the biggest mystery of childhood was sex.  And central characters in this story, Mark Landon and Marcia Terrell, are repeatedly surprised as parts of this great puzzle take shape in and around them. 
      We are determined to a large degree by the material world in which we live, our own bodies and the world around us.  The landscape Mark Landon comes to appreciate contains the great promise this nation enjoyed after World War II.  For those living west of the Mississippi especially, this prospect was symbolized by The Mother Road, Route 66.

    What Do They Teach in Economics at Harvard?
    Do graduates REALLY believe:
    • You can spend yourself out of debt;
    • The best way to cure poverty is to "tax the rich" and wealth will "trickle up" from the less successful;
    • Government can "create jobs" by spending your money for you;
    • Printing paper money will create confidence in the market;
    • Politicians are more trustworthy than business people;
    • That Socialism works or has ever worked;
    • Bureaucrats care more about you than your doctor does;
    • Socialized medicine that bankrupted other countries will somehow work better here?
    If this makes you feel uneasy, and you wonder:
    • Is Economics really that complicated?
    • Can "unsophisticated common folk" understand well enough to run their own lives? 
    Dr. Holmes  explains Economics in light-hearted  plain language as he has for thousands of students. Read and explain to others:
    "No it isn't," and

The author has systematically investigated most of the claims that have been made about stress and has carefully argued and demonstrated that they cannot be substantiated. In addition, he offers a simpler and more adequate explanation of what takes place when people feel they are "stressed."  Such an approach makes it possible to address the problem rather than the symptoms. -You Don't Have to be a Victim.

    The eBook Bargain List websitewas established to call attention to recent eBooks from Science & Humanities Press. We are in process of converting over 150 of our original titles to popular eBook formats including Kindle (through amazon), ePub, and pdf. Books will continue to be available as the original paperbacks as well. Lower production and  shipping costs on eBooks may serve as a convenient low-risk opportunity to sample books to make acquisition decisions. Amazon Kindle, for example allows the customer to download a sample of the book for free, and you can enjoy this opportunity without even buying a Kindle, by viewing the book sample on your PC with free Kindle-reader software.

    Temporary Price Reductionsare offered while we are in process of final editing on the eBook editions --usually fixing small typographical errors.  After this process is done, we expect to sell these full-length eBooks for around $9.95. This is a chance to let readers try the books with little risk if they can live with a few typo's.  Amazon should make it possible to refresh your file to later revised versions for free, but I haven't figured out how to do that yet.

    In the table, we are listing recent offerings from many publishers that will sell at stable prices of $0.99 to $2.99, along with   information links to see more details or buy the books at amazon or other vendors.
    This website will be advertised using resources like google adwords and the sales through this site will get small commissions from amazon to hopefully cover some of the advertising and maintenance costs.

    I'minviting other publishers to submit candidates for this list. 
    Books may have low prices to introduce new authors, because the books are short, or other reasons to help promote them.
    sometimes self-publishers start out without the overhead of a print operation and offer "bargain books" just to get feedback from the market and get a start. Even though you can find such bargains directly at amazon, a listing here will benefit the publisher/author by offering a separately promoted marketplace.  To set some standards of quality, books should be fairly recent (e.g. less than 15 years old) not be trivial in content ( say, the book should be more than about 60 pp. as a print edition). Prices should be in the bargain-book price range of $0.99-2.99.
    Humor is welcomed,  but I obviously reserve the right to reject listing a book for any reason, completely at my disgression, such as  blatant pornography "with no redeeming social value" (my standards) or material that is illegal or defamatory.
    This listing won't cost you anything, but offers an opportunity that I might choose to discontinue at any time without notice (it's an "experiment"--I have no idea how this is going to work out).
    Submit listings in an email,
    Title, Author, amazon ASIN #, year published, Genre/type (e.g.fiction, how to, travel, etc.),  BRIEF description (a sentence or two), #pp if it were printed, Price, other website reference if you have one- in the format ""  also a small jpg of the front cover  would help.
    Send the email to me banis @ sciencehumanitiespress .com with the phrase "eBook Bargain List"  in the title of the email. 
    You don't have anything at risk for doing this, and if it all works out to mutual advantage, I'll keep on doing it. Maybe we can have some fun together and promote good literature.
