In this unique guidebook that will appeal to novice and experienced birders alike, the authors of acclaimed Birdfinding in British Columbia explore their 30 favorite birding sites in the diverse landscape of Canada’s westernmost province. More detailed and more personal than the Cannings’ previous books, and illustrated with more than 30 color photographs of birds and locales, and 28 maps, Best Places to Bird in British Columbia introduces some sites that will be familiar favorites for readers, while others may come as a surprise.Readers can choose their destination by species—each chapter has a list of “Specialty Birds,” the ornithological highlights of a trip to the area in question—or by geography—each chapter is named for its region and includes detailed information not only on how to get there but also on how to make the most of being there. Personal anecdotes, historical background, and ornithological information make this an indispensable guide to exploring the best birding sites B.C. has to offer and learning more about its bird population.

    “[A] deliciously written account of the evolution of sex, in all of its bizarre manifestations” by a noted paleontologist—"Read, blush, and enjoy!” (Jared Diamond, author of Guns, Germs, and Steel).   We all know about the birds and the bees, but what about the ancient placoderm fishes and the dinosaurs? In 2008, paleontologist John A. Long and a team of researchers announced their discovery of a 380-million-year-old placoderm fish fossil, known as “the mother fish,” which revealed the earliest known example of internal fertilization. As a result, placoderms are now considered to be the first species to have had intimate sexual reproduction, or sex as we know it—sort of.   Inspired by this incredible find, Long began a quest to uncover the evolutionary history of copulation and insemination. In The Dawn of the Deed, he takes readers on a lively tour through the sex lives of ancient fish and the unusual mating habits of arthropods, tortoises, and even a well-endowed Argentine Duck. Long discusses these discoveries alongside what we know about reproductive biology and evolutionary theory, using the fossil record to provide a provocative account of prehistoric sex. The Dawn of the Deed also explores fascinating revelations about animal reproduction, from homosexual penguins to monogamous seahorses to the difficulties of dinosaur romance.

    An account of the mysterious epidemic among nineteenth-century hotel guests that “enthralled the country and nearly took the life of the-President-elect”(The Washington Post).   The National was once the grandest hotel in the capital. In 1857, it twice hosted President-elect James Buchanan and his advisors, and on both occasions, most of the party was quickly stricken by an acute illness. Over the course of several months, hundreds fell ill, and over thirty died from what became known as the National Hotel disease.   Buchanan barely recovered enough to give his inauguration speech. Rumors ran rampant across the city and the nation. Some claimed that the illness was born of a sewage “effluvia,” while others darkly speculated about an assassination attempt by either abolitionists or southern slaveowners intent on war. In this concise and captivating account of the events—as well as the panic and rumors surrounding them—Kerry Walters investigates the mysteries of the National Hotel disease.

    A must-read for every medical professional, healthcare consumer, and patient advocate.Burnout among medical professionals has reached epidemic proportions. Much of this distress can be attributed to the pile-on of duties and responsibilities healthcare workers face, including an increasing workload, complex quality measures, and expanding policy stipulations—on top of providing quality patient care. At the same time, these growing tasks are coupled with staff shortages and waning organizational support. It's hardly a surprise that the rates of depression and suicide continue to increase among exhausted medical professionals. Burnout is not only harmful to overworked, unsupported healthcare professionals, it also puts patients at risk. 
    In this book, award-winning author and hospital physician Rajeev Kurapati offers a guide to recognizing burnout, as well as providing practical, actionable techniques for developing resilience at both the individual and organizational levels. Based on the latest evidence-based research, these steps will help practitioners regain joy and gain freedom from burnout.
