    From a retired RAF Wing Commander, an introductory guide to the aerial warfare training methods implemented by Germany for airmen during World War II.   The often-unnoticed element in aerial warfare is the training, yet its value is beyond calculation. The Luftwaffe used a variety of aircraft in this fundamental role, with trainee pilots progressing from simpler, older machines to the more sophisticated, as well as heavier aircraft. Gradually airmen were introduced to newer, faster models that enabled them to experience, to some degree, the type of aircraft they would fly in combat.   Recruits would initially spend six months at a Fliegerersatzabteilung or training depot, where the main emphasis was on drill and physical training, with introductory lectures on the principles of wireless operation and map reading. This would be followed by two months studying general aeronautical subjects, before being sent to elementary flying school.   The various kinds of aircraft used for training depended upon the role each individual trainee would eventually undertake, from single-seat fighters to multiple-crew bombers or transports. In this, the Luftwaffe was also able to make use of captured enemy aircraft. It also established training units through the Occupied territories to enable its trainees to familiarize themselves with different conditions and terrain.   In the less-pressurized environment of the training schools away from the front line, more care could be taken over photography, resulting in the author of this extensive study of the wide range of aircraft used for training by the Luftwaffe, being able to assemble such a fine collection of excellent images.

    Ecological Intelligence recasts the uproar over global warming and the assault of man-made toxins into our bodies in terms of the collective self-deception which both created this crisis and holds a key to its solution. Ecological Intelligence argues that "green" labels and recycling programs may do more harm than good by feeding a vital lie, lulling us into the illusion that we are doing enough already while ignoring the adverse impact of the far vaster proportion of what we buy and do. The book brings a psychologist's insights into the world of commerce, arguing for radical transparency — tracking every substantial impact over the life cycle of an item, from manufacture to daily use, to disposal — and surfacing those impacts at the point of purchase. The movement toward such transparency augurs a day when the free market will operate in public interest.A Macmillan Audio production.

    Hoping for the stability he needs to start a family, Sandeep Jauhar, an attending cardiologist, accepts a position at a massive teaching hospital on the outskirts of Queens. With a decade's worth of elite medical training behind him, he is eager to settle down and reap the rewards of countless sleepless nights.Instead, he is confronted with sobering truths. Doctors' morale is low and getting lower. Blatant cronyism determines patient referrals, corporate ties distort medical decisions, and unnecessary tests are routinely performed in order to generate income. Meanwhile, a single patient in Jauhar's hospital might see fifteen specialists in one stay and still fail to receive a full picture of his actual condition.In Doctored, Jauhar chronicles the formative years of his residency while observing firsthand the crisis of American medicine through the eyes of a cardiologist.

    A colorfully illustrated history of buses in postwar England. 
     
    AEC, Bristol, Crossley, Daimler, Dennis, Leyland, and others were all manufacturers of passenger vehicle chassis that could be seen throughout England in the years following the end of World War Two. They produced a wide range of double deck and single deck buses and coaches, bodied by a considerable number of body builders. With the exception of Dennis, all those chassis makers have now disappeared, along with nearly all the body builders. In addition, most operators of this variety of vehicles are no longer in existence, being primarily absorbed into larger operations.  
     
    This book can give only a small indication of the major role lifelong bus enthusiast Steve Morris and his Quantock Heritage fleet have played in preserving not only part of the engineering history of the country, but its effect also on social history. In practical terms he has displayed this by enabling the general public to see, enjoy, and also use vehicles of a bygone era.
