A Little Book of Doctors’ Rules III by Clifton K. Meador M.D.
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 376 KB
Overview: These rules are drawn from extensive reading and over 60 years of teaching and practicing internal medicine. The rules are directed at those entering medicine and at those in practice who see patients in primary care or family medicine. The book is dedicated to Sir William Osler who admonished doctors to "’treat the patient with the disease" not just the disease. Large numbers of first contact patients do not have a definable medical disease but they do have hidden physical symptoms. Uncovering the cause of these symptoms of unknown origin requires careful listening and observation. These 374 rules provide guides and suggestions for discovering the nature of these symptoms, emphasizing the need for an understanding, collaborative, and accepting relationship between doctor and patient. Listening to the "life narrative" of the patient often leads to an understanding of the origin of the patient’s symptoms. Many diseases and causes of symptoms cannot be "seen" but must be heard from the patient’s story and history.

Partial Differential Equations III: Nonlinear Equations, 2nd Ed. by Michael E. Taylor
Requirements: .PDF reader, 3.7 mb
Overview: The third of three volumes on partial differential equations, this is devoted to nonlinear PDE. It treats a number of equations of classical continuum mechanics, including relativistic versions, as well as various equations arising in differential geometry, such as in the study of minimal surfaces, isometric imbedding, conformal deformation, harmonic maps, and prescribed Gauss curvature. In addition, some nonlinear diffusion problems are studied. It also introduces such analytical tools as the theory of L Sobolev spaces, H lder spaces, Hardy spaces, and Morrey spaces, and also a development of Calderon-Zygmund theory and paradifferential operator calculus. The book is aimed at graduate students in mathematics, and at professional mathematicians with an interest in partial differential equations, mathematical physics, differential geometry, harmonic analysis and complex analysis.

Talent: Making People Your Competitive Advantage by Edward E. Lawler III
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1 Mb
Overview: The source of competitive advantage has shifted in many organizations from reliability to innovation and flexibility. But what does it take for an organization that innovates to then manage effectively? In this follow-up to Built to Change, Ed Lawler argues that it is a combination of the right structure and the right people. First, organizations must decide what structure they are: are you a high-involvement organization that has products and services that require a high level of coordination and cooperation among employees? Or do you have a more global competitor structure in which you are constantly bringing in new talent and technological expertise? Are you a mixture of both? Lawler outlines the unique human capital strategy for each approach, shows what it looks like in action, and provides the foundation and tools for creating competitive and innovative organizations.

Ramesses III: The Life and Times of Egypt’s Last Hero by Eric H. Cline, David O’Connor
Requirements: .PDF reader, 63.3 mb
Overview: In the tumultuous and vivid history of New Kingdom Egypt, Ramesses III’s reign was prosperous and culturally rich. He fended off attacks by the "Sea Peoples" and others who threatened the state, he built the great temple of Medinet Habu, and he left wonderfully complete documents describing contemporary social structure and the economy. Amazingly, we even have an account from a contemporary judicial document that describes events leading to Ramesses III’s assassination. This edited collection presents a detailed and informative look at the life, career, and world of one of Egypt’s most important pharaohs, providing insight both on his reign and its aftermath and on the study of the political and cultural history of ancient Egypt. This collection offers the best new scholarship on Ramesses III, with contributions from Christopher J. Eyre; Ogden Goelet, Jr.; Peter W. Haider; Carolyn R. Higginbotham; Kenneth A. Kitchen; Bojana Mojsov; Steven R. Snape; Emily Teeter; and James M. Weinstein, as well as from David O’Connor and Eric H. Cline. It will be of interest to those with an informed amateur’s interest in Egyptology as well as to scholars of Egyptian and biblical archaeology.

Hollywood Godfather: The Life and Crimes of Billy Wilkerson by way of W. R. Wilkerson III
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 367 MB
Overview: This is the definitive biography of essentially the most tough guy in Hollywood all through the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s, the person who based The Hollywood Reporter and essentially the most storied nightspots of the Sunset Strip. In the 30 years as Tinseltown’s premier behind-the-scenes energy dealer, Billy Wilkerson offered Clark Gable and Lana Turner to the sector, introduced the Mafia to Hollywood, and engineered the shakedown of the Hollywood studios by way of Willie Bioff and his mob-run unions. He additionally helped to invent Las Vegas, tangled with Bugsy Siegel (and most likely used to be concerned along with his homicide), and touched off the Hollywood blacklist.
Perhaps no person in Hollywood historical past has ever ruined such a lot of careers or finished such a lot to reshape the film trade as Billy Wilkerson, but there hasn’t ever been a forged biography of the person. Billy’s son, William R. Wilkerson III, has finished super analysis on his father, interviewing over a number of many years everybody who knew him perfect, and he portrays him superbly and damningly on this e book.
