Solutions in this book are divided into chapters by problem domain. Each chapter is a collection of solutions around a single facet of the language such as writing queries, managing indexes, error handling, and query performance. Each solution is presented code-first, giving you a working code example to copy from and implement immediately in your own environment. Following each example is an in-depth description of how and why the given solution works. Tradeoffs and alternative approaches are also discussed.

SQL Pocket Guide describes how these database systems implement SQL syntax for querying, managing transactions, and making changes to data. It also shows how the systems use SQL functions, regular expression syntax, and type conversion functions and formats.
All example SQL statements in this book execute against a set of tables, with data that you can quickly download. The third edition covers important database changes, including:Oracle's support of the recursive WITH syntax, and addition of PIVOT and UNPIVOT operatorsFunctions new to Oracle, such as LISTAGG, NTH_VALUE, and morePostgreSQL’s support of recursive WITH and some window functionsDB2 syntax and datatypes, some compatible with OracleMySQL features such as the TIMESTAMP type and the TO_SECONDS function

Experience with clinical cases is key to excelling in your rotations and post-graduate training. Case Files: Orthopaedic Surgery gives you 45 true-to-life cases that illustrate concepts critical to managing common musculoskeletal injuries and conditions. Each case includes a concise and accurate patient presentation, key exam findings, and clear radiologic images where applicable. Additionally, cases include in-depth discussions of the injury or condition represented, replete with evidence-based practice recommendations, basic procedural tips and techniques, and discussion of potential complications, pitfalls, and ultimate patient outcomes. Review questions and clinical pearls reinforce learning.Learn from 45 high-yield cases, each with review questions Master key concepts with clinical pearls Polish your approach to clinical problems and think like a surgeon Perfect for students, orthopaedic interns, and residents who encounter orthopaedic conditions in daily practice
You CAN love your job again.
It can feel like a rigged game. Executives set aggressive goals, so managers drive their teams to burnout trying to deliver. Or, employees seek connection and support, so managers focus on relationships . . . and fail to make the numbers. The fallout is stress, frustration, and disengagement, and not just among team members—two-thirds of managers report being disengaged.
To succeed, managers cannot choose between results and relationships. They need both: They must get people to achieve while creating an environment that makes them truly want to. Winning Well offers managers a quick, practical action plan—complete with examples, stories, and online assessments. They will learn how to:
Stamp out the corrosive win-at-all-costs mentalityFocus on the game, not just the scoreReinforce behaviors that produce resultsSustain energy and momentumCorrect poor performance without dramaBuild productive relationshipsBe the leader people want to work for
Today’s hypercompetitive economy has created tense, overextended workplaces. Keep it productive, rewarding, and even fun with this one-stop success kit.
