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

    The first reaction to covid-19 was to stay at home to avoid rapid spread. Now people are venturing out and are looking for ways to reduce the risk. Wearing masks, social distancing, washing hands, all help. 
    This book offers another way: Maximizing natural melatonin and taking melatonin by mouth. We examine the evidence that melatonin may increase immunity to the virus as it does in young children who make large amounts of natural melatonin. It may also reduce the severity of the infection. 
    Exposing the eyes to light in the hours before bedtime stops the body from making melatonin. Wearing orange glasses allows production of melatonin. Go to our for glasses. Wearing the glasses for 3 - 4 hours before a 7 to 8 hour sleep in darkness will maximize natural melatonin. 
    Taking a 2 - 5mg melatonin tablet when you put on the glasses will avoid disturbing your circadian rhythm. Natural melatonin is injected directly into the brain where it can protect the brain from the virus. Melatonin has been shown to be very safe, even in very larger doses. 
    Dr. Hansler, the author, did research for GE Lighting for 43 years before retiring to John Carroll University where he studied the effect of light on sleep and health. He has written 9 other books about this.
