<div><b>One of America's top doctors reveals how AI will empower physicians and revolutionize patient care </b></div> <div><br /></div> <div>Medicine has become inhuman, to disastrous effect. The doctor-patient relationship--the heart of medicine--is broken: doctors are too distracted and overwhelmed to truly connect with their patients, and medical errors and misdiagnoses abound. In <i>Deep Medicine</i>, leading physician Eric Topol reveals how artificial intelligence can help. AI has the potential to transform everything doctors do, from notetaking and medical scans to diagnosis and treatment, greatly cutting down the cost of medicine and reducing human mortality. By freeing physicians from the tasks that interfere with human connection, AI will create space for the real healing that takes place between a doctor who can listen and a patient who needs to be heard.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Innovative, provocative, and hopeful, <i>Deep Medicine</i> shows us how the awesome power of AI can make medicine better, for all the humans involved.</div>

<p><b>Pulitzer Prize winner Sheri Fink’s landmark investigation of patient deaths at a New Orleans hospital ravaged by Hurricane Katrina—and her suspenseful portrayal of the quest for truth and justice.</b><br /><br />In the tradition of the best investigative journalism, physician and reporter Sheri Fink reconstructs 5 days at Memorial Medical Center and draws the reader into the lives of those who struggled mightily to survive and maintain life amid chaos.<br /><i><br /></i>After Katrina struck and the floodwaters rose, the power failed, and the heat climbed, exhausted caregivers chose to designate certain patients last for rescue. Months later, several of those caregivers faced criminal allegations that they deliberately injected numerous patients with drugs to hasten their deaths. <br /><br /><i>Five Days at Memorial</i>, the culmination of six years of reporting, unspools the mystery of what happened in those days, bringing the reader into a hospital fighting for its life and into a conversation about the most terrifying form of health care rationing.<br /><br />In a voice at once involving and fair, masterful and intimate, Fink exposes the hidden dilemmas of end-of-life care and reveals just how ill-prepared we are for the impact of large-scale disasters—and how we can do better. A remarkable book, engrossing from start to finish, <i>Five Days at Memorial</i> radically transforms your understanding of human nature in crisis.<br /><br /><b>One of The <i>New York Times</i>' Best Ten Books of the Year</b></p>

An inspiring and unforgettable memoir of a young couple's push for survival in the face of insurmountable odds.<br /><br /><b>2019 National Indie Excellence Award Winner</b><br /><b>2019 Independent Press Award - Distinguished Favorite</b><br /><br /><b>How an ALL-Natural Cancer Treatment Took the Author from "90 Days to Live" to Full Remission</b><br /><br /><div></div><div>When an out-of-the-blue cancer diagnosis quickly turned into a 90-days-to-live death sentence from his doctor, Rodney Stamps and his wife Paige defied the medical establishment, and drew their line in the sand.<br /><br />With both a growing family and business--and given that their doctors promised only to briefly extend his life with chemotherapy--the Stamps gave a resounding "No" to chemo and radiation.<br /><br />90 Days to Live recounts the Stamps' incredible and inspirational journey to find an alternative answer to cancer. In the end...<br /><br /><b>They'd beaten cancer while building a million-dollar business.</b><br />Following his ALL-natural protocol religiously, Rodney's cancer went into full remission. On top of that triumph, he took his fire-and-safety business--which had just begun to take off when he'd received his cancer diagnosis--into a million-dollar enterprise.<br /><br /><b>An ALL-Natural Treatment Focus</b><br />Unlike other books by cancer survivors claiming to cure their own cancer "naturally," but in actuality, relying heavily on modern medicine (surgery/drugs), 90 Days to Live outlines a <b>100% alternative medical treatment</b> (i.e., using absolutely no allopathic--a.k.a. conventional--medicine)--a treatment that's delivered incredible results to Rodney and countless others.<br /><br />Alternately heart-wrenching and heartwarming--and delivered in an engaging dual-author format--90 Days to Live will speak to anyone struggling with an "incurable" disease, building a business under trying circumstances, or anyone who just loves a good old-fashioned, "beating-the-odds" story.</div>

“I want my presentation to blow the audience away.”<br /><br />“I hate when people text-message during my presentations.”<br /><br />“I don’t want to be like all the other presenters.<br /><br />These are the actual words that presenters, particularly college faculty, use when asked about their PowerPoint goals and challenges. They do presentations all the time—in the classrooms, at conferences, and during workshops—yet they rarely learn to communicate effectively.<br /><br />Bottom line: Isn't that what presentations are supposed to do? Create impact through our words and our slides? In a way that get audiences to go: <br /><br />Wow. That was clear and to the point. <br />I want that professor for all my lectures. <br />I never thought about the topic this way. I’m going to Google more about it. <br />I’m going to email this presenter . . . and maybe collaborate!<br /><br />PRESENTING. The Professor’s Guide to Powerful Communication will show you:<br /><br />•One simple test to see if your existing presentation slides are any good <br />•How documentaries (yes—documentaries!) present information more effectively than most of us<br />•A proven format to engage audiences (Hint: don’t introduce technical terms up front) <br />•How to deal with the chronic issue of “I have too much to cover!” <br />•How to create captivating slides—without a degree in design<br /><br />Just like his other widely-read book, Teaching College: The Ultimate Guide to Lecturing, Presenting, and Engaging Students, Dr. Norman Eng’s PRESENTING. is based on the latest research in media & communication, design, education, and neuroscience. More importantly, it gives college educators—novices and veterans alike—the confidence to move any audience, no matter their topic or venue. <br />
