Each of the courses comprising this book is written by a specialist in the field who is a decorated teacher with years of experience in the classroom. In this volume, they have distilled that experience and expertise to produce the tool they wish they had when they first were thinking about and then actually began law school: a clear, concise introduction to the entire first-year curriculum.
Get a Running Start is a valuable tool for first-year law students, giving them a running start on their law school careers and putting them in the best position to enter the profession. By reading through all the lessons for a course, first-year students will get a complete overview of each course early in the semester. As the semester goes forward, students can accelerate their learning and comprehension by reviewing individual lessons when preparing for class. As the semester comes to a close, the lessons in this book provide an invaluable framework for outlining and exam preparation.
Get a Running Start is also the ideal introduction for undergraduate students. For formal pre-law or Introduction to American Law courses, this book will provide students with a comprehensive overview broken into concise, digestible chunks that are ideal for further development in lecture or discussion sections. Outside the classroom, Get a Running Start offers a stimulating introduction to fundamental legal concepts that will engage those who might be thinking about going to law school and citizens who simply want to know more about the law as a central feature of public life.

David Gray, a longtime professor of psychology, makes the case that everything runs much smoother when everyone is a winner.
That goal can be achieved when people cooperate instead of competing. Taking an approach that relies heavily on the behavioral sciences, the author provides the tools you need to:
turn mutual threats into motivation,
transform conflict into creative productivity,
build structures that stimulate winning,
share power and profits with others.
By examining historical events and contemporary society, it is clear to see that when someone ”loses” because the rules were unfair, he or she tends to either become apathetic, half-heartedly compliant, or out-rightly hostile. Substance abuse and domestic abuse are also common responses.
Opting for a more cooperative approach has helped democracies, religions, and companies boost the happiness and productivity of their respective constituents. You can do the same by applying the lessons in When Everyone Wins.
One of the key challenges of writing a textbook of diagnostic medicine is to balance the "bottom up" approach of constructing a differential diagnosis from individual clinical findings, and the "top down" approach of learning the key features pertaining to a particular diagnosis. The 13th edition of Chamberlain's Symptoms and Signs in Clinical Medicine integrates both approaches into a coherent working framework that will assist the reader in preparing for academic and professional examinations, and in everyday practice.
Presented in full colour and illustrated with relevant images, this book provides a thorough lesson in diagnostic medicine, ensuring the reader is fully prepared to deal with the challenging process of differential diagnosis through a thorough knowledge of the central features of the conditions that they are likely to encounter.
Key features: Teaches the reader how to diagnose correctly through assessment of symptoms and signs while simultaneously recalling all key features of a given condition Full colour and generously illustrated Conforms with the core competencies required for the foundation years Includes bullet point lists and tip boxes Chapters conclude with a summary of key points for easy revision Written and edited by a highly experienced team of specialists Companion website
