A medical mystery, THE ILLNESS & THE ODYSSEY tracks the pursuit of a possible clue to a cure for Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other neurological wasting diseases which may be related to a mysterious neurological disease found only among the native people on the remote island of Guam. Lytico-Bodig is a debilitating disease suffered by Guam's Chamorro population. It manifests as a brutal combination of Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). Because it is found only in an isolated location – giving medical researchers a narrow set of variables to study and understand – it is believed that the information learned about Lytico-Bodig could lead to the discovery of a cure for other neurodegenerative diseases that attack the brain.

While it is unknown if there ever was a man named Homer, there is no doubt that the epic poems assembled under his name form the cornerstone of Western literature, feeding our imagination for over two and a half millennia. The Iliad and The Odyssey, with their tales of the Trojan War, Achilles, Ulysses and Penelope, the Sirens, the Cyclops, Helen of Troy, and the petulant gods, are familiar to most readers because they are so pervasive. From Plato to Virgil, Pope to Joyce, the poems have been told and retold, interpreted and embellished. In this graceful and sweeping book, Alberto Manguel traces the lineage of the poems from their inception and first recording.

Having been away for twenty years, little does he know what awaits him when he finally makes his way home. These two books are some of the most import books in the literary cannon, having influenced virtually every adventure tale ever told. And yet they are still accessible and immediate and now you can have both in one binding.

Men have been embarking on odysseys since the dawn of civilization. In 1970, Captain James Lovell, commander of the ill-fated Apollo XIII mission named his command module Odyssey. Looking up the definition of odyssey, you'll find it means a long voyage with many changes of fortune, and that it was - in spades. But the granddaddy of all odysseys comes to us from a thousand years before Christ, the story of a mythical Greek warrior named Odysseus and his search for home. Together with its companion poem, The Iliad, they form western literature's first action adventure story, written by the man we call Homer.
