    It was a crime that shocked the nation: the brutal murder in Chicago in 1924 of a child by two wealthy college students who killed solely for the thrill of the experience. Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb were intellectuals—too smart, they believed, for the police to catch them. When they were apprehended, state's attorney Robert Crowe was certain that no defense could save the ruthless killers from the gallows. But the families of the confessed murderers hired Clarence Darrow, entrusting the lives of their sons to the most famous lawyer in America in what would be one of the most sensational criminal trials in the history of American justice. 
    Set against the backdrop of the 1920s—a time of prosperity, self-indulgence, and hedonistic excess in a lawless city on the brink of anarchy—For the Thrill of It draws the reader into a world of speakeasies and flappers, of gangsters and gin parties, with a spellbinding narrative of Jazz Age murder and mystery.

    Arriving in the anaesthetic room for the first time can be a
    daunting experience. You will be closely supervised, but everything
    will seem very new. Surgery is a stressful life-event for the patient
    and your job as an anaesthetist is to make it as safe and as
    comfortable as you can whilst ensuring the best outcome possible.
    
    Anaesthesia is no longer the preserve of the medical anaesthetist. It
    increasingly features in undergraduate and postgraduate healthcare
    education, and many of the competencies required need to be attained
    quickly, in conjunction with new drugs and equipment.
    
    This guide provides practical and clinically relevant advice in easily
    understandable sections to give you confidence and prepare you for your
    days in theatre - without the complicated physiology, pharmacology and
    physics. It allows you to understand the most common drugs and provides
    a rationale for using them. It’s the perfect quick, clinical reference for
    dealing with common problems and emergencies; ideal for everyday use.
    
    This book is invaluable for anaesthetists starting out in their career, but
    is also highly recommended for Foundation, ACCS, ICM trainees, medical
    students, operating department trainees and nurses. It also provides an
    excellent revision basis for Primary FRCA candidates.
    
    ‘This book provides the basic background and ground rules for how anaesthetists
    work, how they approach a problem and how one can prepare for it. Some of
    the initial chapters could be usefully read by all surgeons, especially those in
    Foundation Training posts, and medical students considering an anaesthetic or
    intensive placement. The use of lists, key points and limited use of references help
    make the book easy to read, or dip into between cases, and keep it a manageable
    size whilst still providing a mine of information for the target audience.’

That's because the hands and body don't communicate on a practice swingÔÇöthey let you get on with it on your own. They only bother to 'talk' to each other when you're about to hit a shot at a specific target.When the crunch comes and you're ready to swing back, if the aim of the club doesn't match up to your intended swing path, they hit the panic button, take control and stick the swing on autopilot. They program in what they have to do and you can't override it. You might try to take the club back in one piece but it you're not aiming correctlyÔÇöthey quickly take over. And if you think you can kid them you'd have done it by now.If you are aiming at a target 250 yards away and your clubface is only 3 degrees to the right, it will be pointing 13 yards right of target. If you try to replicate your nice square practice swing, but your hands pick up where the club is aiming the two angles are so conflicting your orthodox swing becomes impossible.The only time you can override your natural alarm system is when you're standing in front of a pro and he's watching you like a hawk. Then the alarm system becomes dormantÔÇöit trusts the pro to watch over you.

    What Doctors Cannot Tell You -...

    Almost 20 billion times each year, a person walks into a doctor's office. 
    The person becomes a patient. Everyone becomes this patient at some point. How will you talk to your physicians? 
    What will you tell them? 
    What will they tell you in return? 
    They can't tell you what they don't know. 
    They can tell you when they don't know. 
    Will they? 
    What Doctors Cannot Tell You explores the uncertainty that pervades medicine. 
    It breaks the code of silence within which too many physician-patient conversations take place. The patients' stories in its pages will empower you to ask questions of your physicians, with a firm belief that healing and hope begin from honesty in those critical conversations. 
    This book marries surgically precise medical narrative to thinking and perspective that will throw the curtains wide on what medicine knows, what it doesn't know, and how it tries to tell the difference between the two. This book is Outliers meets Patch Adams, only with an added how-to twist beyond the instructive and powerfully human narratives. At every chapter's end, the reader will find a list of principles, one for each vignette, and questions to ask his or her physician. 
    A few books in the last decade have focused on human errors and complications in medicine. Each has suggested ways to improve medicine by the application of checklists and protocols. This book adds a unique and important angle to these considerations: How firmly do we know what should go on the checklist or protocol in the first place? How clear has medicine been with its patients about what it cannot know or does not yet know?

Colette MacDonald, then pregnant, and her two young daughters were beaten and stabbed to death in their home. The prime suspect was Colette’s husband, a charismatic military doctor and Green Beret named Jeffrey MacDonald.   MacDonald invited writer Joe McGinniss to write a book about the case. Fatal Vision, published in 1983, has become a true crime classic, but not without controversy. In 1984, MacDonald sued McGinniss for fraud, claiming he misrepresented his intentions, making Fatal Vision an incredibly compelling story and an excellent example of the complex questions surrounding free speech and journalistic integrity.   The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.
