Summary

A concise, practical guide to problem-free job transitions for employees, recruiters, and business leaders: “Incredibly user-friendly.” —James B. Adelman, Esq., Senior Vice President, General Counsel, Commonwealth Financial Network 
 
The fundamental purpose of this book is to provide a useful how-to guide for people who are deciding whether to leave their current employer and join a direct competitor, and for companies involved in the hiring and recruiting process.  
 
Many employees are subject to so-called Non-Competition Agreements and, consequently, already understand that there are significant risks, legal and business, when transitioning jobs. However, what most do not appreciate is that there are a host of laws and protocols, having nothing to do with whether an employment contract exists, that govern the way one may properly prepare to leave and the manner in which the hiring company can bring the new hire on board.  
 
Every year millions voluntarily leave their companies to join a direct competitor and millions more explore the possibility. All such undertakings, even if the ultimate decision is not to leave, bring legal and litigation and business risks—risks that can result in large damage awards, injunction orders, and general corporate disruption and turmoil. This book by an experienced attorney offers important guidance and practical tips on avoiding and minimizing those risks. 
 
“This book should find its way to the desk of anyone who is contemplating a transition to a competing firm, now or in the future.  It is also a ‘must-read’ for all organizations involved in lateral hiring, as it explains the ‘do’s’ and ‘don’ts’ of talent acquisition.” —Boris Groysberg, Richard P. Chapman Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School

    An in-depth introduction to the life, careers, and methodologies of crime scene investigators. 
     
    If the devil is in the details, then the crime scene investigator’s got him: conducting searches, collecting information, photographing, scrutinizing, analyzing—pursuing the culprit right down to the last scrap of evidence. Whether you’d like to become a crime scene investigator or simply want to see what it takes, this book is your ideal introduction to this fascinating aspect of crime detection. 
     
    Like a top-notch forensics expert, author Henry M. Holden traces the path that crime scene investigators follow as they learn and ply their trade. His behind-the-scenes look takes us from application to training, crime scene to lab, revealing the fine points of securing, examining, and processing evidence; identifying victims, and reenacting the crime; conducting police lineups and interviews, and administering polygraphs; and forensics and evidence analysis.

    Green Metropolis - What the City...

    David Owen

    Most Americans think of crowded cities as ecological nightmares-as wastelands of concrete and garbage and diesel fumes and traffic jams. Yet residents of compact urban centers, David Owen shows, individually consume less oil, electricity, and water than other Americans. They live in smaller spaces, discard less trash, and, most important of all, spend far less time in automobiles. Residents of Manhattan-the most densely populated place in North America-rank first in public-transit use and last in per-capita greenhouse gas production, and they consume gasoline at a rate that the country as a whole hasn't matched since the mid-1920s, when the most widely owned car in the United States was the Ford Model T. They are also among the only people in the United States for whom walking is still an important means of daily transportation.These achievements are not accidents. Spreading people thinly across the countryside may make them feel green, but it doesn't reduce the damage they do to the environment. In fact, it increases the damage, while also making the problems they cause harder to see and to address. Owen contends that the environmental problem we face, at the current stage of our assault on the world's nonrenewable resources, is not how to make teeming cities more like the pristine countryside. The problem is how to make other settled places more like Manhattan, whose residents presently come closer than any other Americans to meeting environmental goals that all of us, eventually, will have to come to terms with.
