Text in English & German. The title of this lavish volume says it all. In other words, that beautiful breasts can become a real mania, a minor but fully deserved addiction. When he was playing a female character, what was it the actor and comic Robin Williams said? "If I actually were a woman, I would be fooling around with my breasts all day long". Who would begrudge him this erotic fantasy? We are actually extremely fortunate that quite a few of these magnificently buxom women are still around, possessed as they are of two irresistible arguments. Given today's anorexic models, still seen by the fashion industry as the measure of all things (and have been since Twiggy), they should not be taken for granted. Among the fabulously well-upholstered women in the pages of this bumper collection, you won't find many in current fashion magazines. All the more surprising and gratifying, then, to discover that there are still well-known and even famous photographers who are more than happy to get back to the roots of unalloyed joy. This certainly applies to the approximately 40 international photographers included here, whose unique images boast some pretty impressive vital statistics. "Welcome to one of the biggest collections of natural Boobs Hall of Fame: Raw Boobs; Fine Breast; Busty Nympha; Coony Boobs; Big Naturals; Bravo Juggs; Prime Cups; Spicy Titties and Chocolate Boobs.

Authentisch und anrührend Ein Buch, das es eigentlich gar nicht geben dürfte. Denn mit 24 Jahren wird Matt Haig von einer lebensbedrohlichen Krankheit überfallen, von der er bis dahin kaum etwas wusste: einer Depression. Es geschieht auf eine physisch dramatische Art und Weise, die ihn buchstäblich an den Abgrund bringt. Dieses Buch beschreibt, wie er allmählich die zerstörerische Krankheit besiegt und ins Leben zurückfindet. Eine bewegende, witzige und mitreißende Hymne an das Leben und das Menschsein – ebenso unterhaltsam wie berührend.

From its first depictions in ancient medical literature to contemporary depictions in brain imaging, mania has been largely associated with its Greek roots, "to rage." Prior to the nineteenth century, "mania" was used interchangeably with "madness." Although its meanings shifted over time, the word remained layered with the type of madness first-century writers described: rage, fury, frenzy. Even now, the mental illness we know as bipolar disorder describes conditions of extreme irritability, inflated grandiosity, and excessive impulsivity. Spanning several centuries, Manic Minds traces the multiple ways in which the word "mania" has been used by popular, medical, and academic writers. It reveals why the rhetorical history of the word is key to appreciating descriptions and meanings of the "manic" episode." Lisa M. Hermsen examines the way medical professionals analyzed the manic condition during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and offers the first in-depth analysis of contemporary manic autobiographies: bipolar figures who have written from within the illness itself.
