An American icon, Joseph Frank “Buster” Keaton is easily acknowledged as one of the greatest filmmakers in early cinema and beyond. His elaborate slapstick made audiences scream with laughter. But, his stone face hid an internal turmoil. In BUSTER KEATON: CUT TO THE CHASE, biographer Marion Meade seamlessly lays out the life and works of this comedy genius who lacked any formal education. “Buster” made his name as a child of vaudeville, thrown around the stage by his father in a cartoon pantomime of very real abuse. The lessons he carried forward from that experience translated into some of the greatest silent films of all time. Keaton wrote, directed, performed, and edited dozens of features and shorts, including his masterpiece, The General. However, those early scars also led to decades of drinking and mistreatment of women. Keaton saw huge successes, Hollywood sex scandals, years of neglect from studios and audiences, and finally a shaky resurrection that assured his place in Hollywood’s film canon. Meticulously researched, this book brings together four years of research and hundreds of interviews to paint a nuanced portrait of a compelling artist. No comedy fan or film buff should miss this insider story of the man behind the stone face.

Matrix pearls are the glue that holds medicine together. They are the valuable kernels of wisdom and experience that guide physicians through the complexities of modern medical practice. Cut to the Chase - 100 Matrix Pearls for Doctors takes the grand oral traditions of medicine and records them as valuable lessons. Most of these pearls arise from heated discussions at the morbidity and mortality (audit) conference, on hospital rounds, in hallways or in the physicians' lounge. Many arise in the privacy of the consultation room or from family discussions. These lessons are usually lost. They are seldom recorded and have never been catalogued. Dr. Leo Gordon, author of the popular Gordon's Guide to the Surgical Morbidity and Mortality Conference, distills a thirty-year career in medicine into one hundred witty, poignant and eminently readable essays. Students, nurses, administrators and physicians of all specialties will find in this book a delicious view of the ups and downs of life in medicine. Patients will get a rare look into the thoughts of medical practitioners. Cut to the Chase - 100 Matrix Pearls for Doctors is an indispensable guide through the world of today's medicine.
