The Other Side of Eden is written by John Steinbeck IV, the namesake son of celebrated literary icon, John Steinbeck, and completed by his wife, Nancy, after John died during surgery. It contains vivid recollections of a tumultuous early life and reflections on his strained relationship with his remote, conflicted father and the connection of East of Eden to Steinbeck's real-life family. It is believed that the depression that plagued him (and his father before him) was caused by undiagnosed hereditary hemochromatosis.
Exposing the Hidden Dangers of Iron, by Eugene Weinberg, Ph.D., Professor of Microbiology, Indiana University, is an excellent introduction for medical professionals to the intricacies of iron in the various body systems. Containing a practical guide to diagnosis, it also includes such subjects as the treatment and management of iron-loading conditions, excellent reference charts, a large glossary of terms, additional resources, contact and treatment centers, and a complete bibliography.

Since this book was first published in 1989, thousands of families around the world have found The Bronze Killer to be a valuable resource. More than just the personal account of a family who have suffered through the ravages of this terrible disease, it has been a source of information, encouragement and enlightenment to many.
Included is Iron - The Other Side of the Story, which was the first "layperson's" reference to the genetic disorder that, if untreated, can lead to a destructive overload of iron in the body, far too often with fatal results. Recommended by physicians and clinics in Canada and further afield, The Bronze Killer earned high praise for the author in her 1991 citation for the Canada Volunteer Medal of Honour and Certificate of Honour.
The author of The Bronze Killer, Marie Warder, is the founder and President Emeritus of both the Canadian Hemochromatosis Society and the Haemochromatosis Society of South Africa. She is also the founder of the International Association of Haemochromatosis Societies, and she served for many years as the President of this organization. As such, she has assisted in the establishment of affiliated societies in several countries.
