The practice of clinical medicine is inextricably linked with the need for moral values and ethical principles. The study of medical ethics is, therefore, rightly assuming an increasingly significant place in undergraduate and postgraduate medical courses and in allied health curricula.<br /><br /><i>Making Sense of Medical Ethics</i> offers a no-nonsense introduction to the principles of medial ethics, as applied to the everyday care of patients, the development of novel therapies and the undertaking of pioneering basic medical research. Written from a practical rather than a philosophical perspective, the authors call upon their extensive experience of clinical practice, research and teaching to illustrate how ethical principles can be applied in different 'real-life' situations.<br /><br /><i>Making Sense of Medical Ethics</i> encourages readers to understand the principles of medical ethics as they apply to clinical practice; explore and evaluate common misconceptions; consider the ethics underlying any medical decision; and as a result, to realize that a good appreciation of medical ethics will help them to practise more effectively in the future.

<DIV><B>The chilling <I>Washington Post</I> bestseller of an innocent death row inmate—with a foreword by Sister Helen Prejean, author of <I>Dead Man Walking</I>.</B><BR />  <BR /><I>Grace and Justice on Death Row</I> tells the story of Alfred Dewayne Brown, a man who spent over twelve years in prison (ten of them on Texas’ infamous Death Row) for a high-profile crime he did not commit, and his lawyer, Brian Stolarz, who dedicated his career and life to secure his liberty. The book chronicles Brown’s extraordinary journey to freedom against very long odds, overcoming unscrupulous prosecutors, corrupt police, inadequate defense counsel, and a broken criminal justice system.<BR />  <BR /><I>Grace and Justice on Death Row</I> also addresses many issues facing the criminal justice system and capital punishment—race, class, adequate defense counsel, intellectual disability—and proposes reforms.<BR />  <BR /> “<I>Grace and Justice on Death Row</I> isn’t just about how our broken system almost broke another decent man. More than that, it’s a moving story of a unique brotherhood that’s formed when a corporate lawyer with his faith bitterly tested literally saves another man’s life.” —Craig Melvin, MSNBC news anchor and <I>Today</I> show national correspondent<BR />  <BR /> “Brian Stolarz’s nuanced account of how he proved the innocence of a man on Death Row provided crucial insight into the terrible injustices of the American death penalty process. But at its core, this is a tale of one man’s unwavering faith in another human being” —<I>The Washington Post</I></DIV>

<p>The world is a better place than it used to be. People are healthier, wealthier, and live longer. Yet the escapes from destitution by so many has left gaping inequalities between people and nations. In <i>The Great Escape</i>, Angus Deaton--one of the foremost experts on economic development and on poverty--tells the remarkable story of how, beginning 250 years ago, some parts of the world experienced sustained progress, opening up gaps and setting the stage for today's disproportionately unequal world. Deaton takes an in-depth look at the historical and ongoing patterns behind the health and wealth of nations, and addresses what needs to be done to help those left behind.</p><br /><p> Deaton describes vast innovations and wrenching setbacks: the successes of antibiotics, pest control, vaccinations, and clean water on the one hand, and disastrous famines and the HIV/AIDS epidemic on the other. He examines the United States, a nation that has prospered but is today experiencing slower growth and increasing inequality. He also considers how economic growth in India and China has improved the lives of more than a billion people. Deaton argues that international aid has been ineffective and even harmful. He suggests alternative efforts--including reforming incentives to drug companies and lifting trade restrictions--that will allow the developing world to bring about its own Great Escape.</p><br /><p> Demonstrating how changes in health and living standards have transformed our lives, <i>The Great Escape</i> is a powerful guide to addressing the well-being of all nations.</p>

*** Contains mature themes. For readers 18+ *** <br /><br /> “Living is what’s supposed to happen after you survive. It’s life in ‘post-survival’ that defines the human character’s ability to move forward from trauma.” - Maggie Kirton<br /><br /> My Firefly Updated Edition - 2018 includes "Ventice" my personal journal which I kept while pressing charges against my parents in 2011. If you have already read the original edition of My Firefly, please note that the content of the original edition has remained the same - the new content is located at the end of the original book and contains 200+ additional pages of text. The link to the new content, Ventice, can be found on the ‘Contents’ page.<br /><br /> My Firefly is a true account of a child's abuse at the hands of her family. It will pull you into its pages and grab hold of your spirit. <br /><br /> Seen from the perspective of the family home, a young girl struggles to stay alive as she is slowly ripped apart emotionally, physically, and sexually by her father. You’ll experience an abundance of feelings throughout this book and won’t be able to put it down. <br /><br /> It is cruel and brutish and bloody. But in the end, Kirton shows that there is hope of having a full and meaningful life even after a horrible and traumatic experience.<br /><br /> Author's reply to reviewers: Why does the house tell the story?<br /><br /> The people who do nothing; those which watch from the rafters, standing back and shaking their heads; those which stand by and pretend it didn’t happen or that it has no importance; those are the people I’m trying to reach. The house screamed for me because I couldn’t scream for myself when I wrote my story or when I lived it. No one heard me and those who did, turned a blind eye. I was a waste of their time. Maybe if they remove themselves from my voice they might use their own to make a difference in someone else’s life. <br /><br /> So, thank you, all of you, for the reviews . . . it means that my book made some noise whether it is good or bad is really beside the point. <br /><br /> I don’t want the reader of my book to feel my pain or hear my screams. I want the reader to feel what the house felt: helpless, incapable, useless, and silent - because that is exactly how an abused child sees the world around them. An abused child is not so much in pain as much as they are ‘alone’ while waiting for the next pain to be done with. <br /><br /> And now, before you buy my book and read it, you are forewarned. This book is brutal, graphic in its details and its subject is insane on many levels. <br /><br /> My Firefly is being used in school systems to help identify abuse in students. It has opened the ‘doors of hope’ to many other survivors. It has helped remind me that I am alive in spite of its contents. Besides, there are too many incidents to mention that are NOT in this book - I only wrote about the easy ones. <br /><br />Imagination saved my life when I was a child; why shouldn’t I write it in the most creative and unique voice possible?!

The Zoo Crew. A random assortment of individuals that came together in western Montana out of circumstance, stayed together by choice. Among them are Ajax, a gaming genius far from his native Boston. Kade, a forest firefighter that spends half his year roaming the blazing countryside, the other half perusing the local nightlife. Sage, registered nurse and proverbial mother hen for the group.<br /><br />At the helm is Drake Bell, displaced Southerner and third year law student. Fresh off a summer spent interning in legal hell, he is only mildly certain he even wants to continue down the path he’s on. Until an old friend comes to find him that is.<br /><br />Eight months pregnant and closing fast on her due date, the girl is scared. What was supposed to have been a simple surrogacy agreement has gone tragically wrong. Young girls like her are coming up missing or even worse. She’s on the run and has nobody else to turn to.<br /><br />If everything the girl is saying is true, some of the largest players in the Missoula community are involved. Armed only with his own trepidations and the loyalty of those around him, Drake must find a way to save his friend and his own growing skepticism before it’s too late.

<p><b>Hard-hitting divorce lawyer James Sexton shares his insights and wisdom from the front lines of divorce to keep you out of his office and improve your relationship.</b><br /><b></b><br /><b></b><i>If You're in My Office, It's Already Too Late</i>. James Sexton knows this. After dealing with more than a thousand clients whose marriages have dissolved over everything from an ill-advised threesome with the nanny to the uneven division of carpool duties, he also knows all of the what-not-to-dos for couples who want to build—and consistently work to preserve—a lasting, fulfilling relationship. Described by former clients as a “courtroom gunslinger” and “the sociopath you want on your side,” Sexton tells the unvarnished truth about relationships, diving straight into the most common marital problems. These usually derive from dishonest—or nonexistent—communication. Even when the alleged reason for separation is one spouse’s new “personal trainer,” there’s likely a communication problem that predates the fitness kick. Symptom and root cause get confused all the time.</p><p>Sexton has spent his career working with spouses-to-be-no-longer. Reverse engineering a relationship can help to identify and fix what does not work. Ever feel like you’re holding back criticism of your spouse because you just can’t have that fight right now? Sexton will tell you to “Hit Send Now.” Maybe you aren’t as adventurous as you used to be, or need some "you time," but for some reason it seems weird or exhausting to change up the routine now. Sexton knows where that mentality leads and offers viable alternative paths to take. Though he deals constantly with the heartbreak of others, he still believes in romance and the transformative power of love. This book is his opportunity to use what he has learned to help couples that aren’t so far gone get back on track.</p>

<DIV>Long thought of as an idealistic but unrealistic proposition promoted by far-left activists, single-payer health care has become a major discussion point across the political landscape. Bernie Sanders made it a central focus of his insurgent 2016 run for the Democratic presidential nomination against Hillary Clinton. House Democrats' messaging on health care in the 2018 midterm elections, and the burgeoning campaign for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, have elevated single-payer even further, bringing the issue to the center of American politics. Surprisingly, however, few books have examined the impact of a single-payer health care system in depth—and most of those that have done so come from a leftist perspective supporting this dramatic change. This vacuum in the current literature cries out for a work making the case against single payer—one which educates the American people about the damaging effects of this proposed health care takeover. Written for a broad audience ranging from interested citizens to leaders in the conservative movement, <I>The Case Against Single Payer</I> will explain the harmful implications of giving the federal government unfettered control of the health care system.</DIV>
