Newton's Football
31,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the bestselling tradition of Freakonomics and Scorecasting comes a clever and accessible look at the big ideas underlying the science of football. Did you hear the one about the MacArthur genius physicist and the NFL coach? It's not a joke. It's actually an innovative way to understand chaos theory, and the remarkable complexity of modern professional football. In Newton's Football, journalist and New York Times bestselling author Allen St. John and TED Speaker and former Yale professor Ainissa Ramirez explore the unexpected science behind America's Game. Whether it's Jerry Rice finding the common ground between quantum physics and the West Coast offense or an Ivy League biologist explaining-at a granular level-exactly how a Big Mac morphs into an outside linebacker, Newton's Football illuminates football-and science-through funny, insightful stories told by some of the world's sharpest minds. With a clear-eyed empirical approach-and an exuberant affection for the game-St. John and Ramirez address topics that have long beguiled scientists and football fans alike, including: • the unlikely evolution of the football (or, as they put it, 'The Divinely Random Bounce of the Prolate Spheroid') • what Vince Lombardi has in common with Isaac Newton • how the hardwired behavior of monkeys can explain a head coach's reluctance to go for it on fourth-down • why a gruesome elevator accident jump-started the evolution of placekicking • how Teddy Roosevelt saved football using the same behavioral science concept that Dreamworks would use to save Shrek • why woodpeckers don't get concussions • how better helmets actually made the game more dangerous Every Sunday the NFL shares a secret with only its savviest fans: The game isn't just a clash of bodies, it's a clash of ideas. The greatest minds in football have always possessed an instinctual grasp of science, understanding the big ideas and gritty realities that inform the game's rich past, as well as its increasingly uncertain future. Blending smart reporting, counterintuitive creativity, and compelling narrative, Newton's Football takes gridiron analysis to the next level, giving fans a book that entertains, enlightens, and explains the game anew. Praise for Newton's Football 'It was with great interest that I read Newton's Football. I'm a fan of applying of science to sport and Newton's Football truly delivers. The stories are as engaging as they are informative. This is a great read for all football fans.'-Mark Cuban 'A delightfully improbable book putting science nerds and sports fans on the same page.'-Booklist 'This breezily-written but informative book should pique the interest of any serious football fan in the twenty-first century.'-The American Spectator 'The authors have done a worthy job of combining popular science and sports into a work that features enough expertise on each topic to satisfy nerds and jocks alike. . . . The writers succeed in their task thanks to in-depth scientific knowledge, a wonderful grasp of football's past and present, interviews with a wide array of experts, and witty prose. . . . [Newton's Football is] fun and thought-provoking, proving that football is a mind game as much as it is a ball game.'-Publishers Weekly

Wall Street Journal : “‘The Knowledge' is a fascinating look at the basic principles of the most important technologies undergirding modern society… a fun read full of optimism about human ingenuity.” Boston Globe: “[Dartnell’s] plans may anticipate the destruction of our world, but embedded in them is the hope that there might be a better way to live in the pre-apocalyptic world we inhabit right now.” New York Post : “A stimulating read, a grand thought experiment on re-engineering the food, housing, clothing, heat, clean water and every other building block of civilization.” Booklist: “Dartnell’s vision is a great start in understanding what it took to build our world.” The Times: “This book is an extraordinary achievement. With lucidity and brevity, Dartnell explains the rudiments of a civilisation. It is a great read even if civilisation does not collapse. If it does, it will be the sacred text of the new world — Dartnell that world’s first great prophet.” The Independent: “The Knowledge is premised on an ingenious sleight of hand. Ostensibly a manual on rebuilding our technological life-support system after a global catastrophe, it is actually a glorious compendium of the knowledge we have lost in the living; the origins of the material fabric of our actual, unapocalyptic lives....The most inspiring book I’ve read in a long time.” The Guardian: “The Knowledge is a terrifically engrossing history of science and technology.... [A] cunningly packaged yet entertainingly serious essay in the history of practical ideas.” Times Higher Education: “A whirlwind tour of the history of human endeavour in terms of scientific and technological discovery.... Readers will certainly come away better informed, more knowledgeable about, and hopefully more interested in the fundamental science and technology necessary to rebuild a civilised society.” The Daily Mail: “Dartnell’s guide to surviving the apocalypse is as breezy and engaging as it is informative. I now know exactly what I’m going to do as soon as a mushroom cloud appears on the horizon. Leap in my golf cart and go straight round to Dartnell’s place.” The Observer: “A crash course in the scientific fundamentals underpinning modern-day living. The Knowledge impresses as a condensed history of scientific progress, and will pique curiosity among readers who regret daydreaming throughout school chemistry lessons.” New Statesman: “A crash course in the scientific fundamentals underpinning modern-day living. The Knowledge impresses as a condensed history of scientific progress, and will pique curiosity among readers who regret daydreaming throughout school chemistry lessons.” Nature: “The ultimate do-it-yourself guide to ‘rebooting’ human civilization. With scientific nous, Dartnell depicts probable environmental scenarios on a stricken Earth and offers putative survivors instruction in the technologies needed to craft a culture from the ground up. Many will thrill to this reminder of our species’ prodigious resilience.” Seth Mnookin, New York Times bestselling author of The Panic Virus and associate director of MIT's Graduate Program in Science Writing: “A marvelously astounding work: In one graceful swoop, Lewis Dartnell takes our multi-layered, interconnected modern world, shows how fragile its scaffolding is, and then lays out a how-to guide for starting over from scratch. Imagine Zombieland told by Neil deGrasse Tyson and you'll get some sense of what a delight The Knowledge is to read.” Ken MacLeod, author of Intrusion and Descent: “Dartnell makes the technology and science of everyday life in our civilization fascinating and understandable. This book may or may not save your life but it'll certainly make it more interesting. This is the book we all wish we'd been given at school

Handbook of Psychiatric Consultation with Child...
89,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

I have spent the best part of the last quarter of a century working on the con sultation service at the Massachusetts General Hospital. Much of my satisfaction has stemmed from working with nonpsychiatric physicians, especially in having them come to realize the value of psychological methods in the treatment of their patients. It has always been my belief that learning to understand the patient's mental life was as much a part of medicine as the taking of vital signs. To treat adequately, certainly to treat well, a physician must know something of his patient's thought processes. Teaching others the value of this knowledge is the first step in educating them to seek ways of learning it themselves. Rarely can this be done in the lecture hall. One can best pique curiosity by demon strating worth, and that is done at the bedside or in whatever setting the con sultation is carried out. Every consultation then carries an implicit imperative to attest its value. It can be covert teaching at its best. I have found the practice of consultation psychiatry satisfying and compelling enough to want to remain in it for at least another quarter of a century .

Spying on Whales: The Past, Present, and Future...
25,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

 Praise for Spying on Whales: “[Pyenson] draws out one of the most fascinating stories in the history of life.” —The New Yorker “A palaeontological howdunnit embedded in a travelogue devoted to chasing living and extinct whales…[ Spying on Whales] captures the excitement of suction-cup tagging of humpback whales, and of digs in Panama, seeking answers to deep questions in cetacean science.” — Nature “ Spying on Whales represents the best of science writing. The subject is inherently fascinating, the author is an authentic scientist by virtue of his personal research on the subject, and the text reads like the epic it truly is.” —Edward O. Wilson, Pulitzer Prize-winner and New York Times bestselling author of The Origin of Creativity and The Meaning of Human Existence 'This is a fantastic book. Nick Pyenson writes with a rare combination of passion, scientific insight, and knowledge of Deep Time. I couldn't put it down.' –Sy Montgomery, author of The Soul of an Octopus 'Reading Spying on Whales leaves a strong impression, based on the principles of ecology, evolution, and physiology, that a world including whales seems awesomely improbable.  And, of course, wonderful.  Nick Pyenson guides us through this world, and in the process achieves that rare state of grace for a writer of science—producing prose that is both scientific and beautiful.  This is a moving, informative, evocative book.' —Robert Sapolsky, author of Behave 'Spying on Whales is a delight on many levels. It's an introduction to the science of whales, but it's also the odyssey of a scientist—and whether he's tracing the fossil history of whales or describing the dissection of a giant whale heart, Pyenson tells his story with warmth and wit.' —Carl Zimmer, author of She Has Her Mother's Laugh 'Knowing whales means following them when they dive out of sight, tracing their evolution through desert fossils, and reading great writers as well as the unpublished journals of dozens of scientists who, little by little, chipped away at vast mysteries. If that doesn’t seem easy, it could explain why only one person has done it all. You’re holding his fantastic book in your hands. ' —Carl Safina, author of Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel 'Nick Pyenson's Spying on Whales is both a lucid deep-dive into the natural history of these animals and, more subtly, an artful portrait of our own species' enchantment with them. It's an enthralling book about everything we know and our compulsion to know it. ' —Jon Mooallem, author of Wild Ones and American Hippopotamus 'With captivating prose, Nick Pyenson takes us on a scientific tale as big as a blue whale. Give your inner paleontologist a treat and learn what it’s like to study the largest animals the world has ever seen.' —Jonathan Losos, author of Improbable Destinies 'There are very few creatures that so fully capture our imagination as do whales — and Pyenson proves why they continue to pique scientific and popular curiosity.  Part science, part memoir, and all about whales, Pyenson’s fantastic book is a must-read for any science and nature enthusiast.' —Lydia Pyne, author of Seven Skeletons 'For the first time anywhere, Nick Pyenson skillfully pieces together the multi-faceted cetacean story—from humble origins among four-legged river-dwellers, to the staggering global diversity of modern whales, and into an uncertain future. Spying on Whales is an engaging tour-de-force that propels you along this journey. ' —Scott D. Sampson, author of How to Raise a Wild Child and host, PBS Kids Dinosaur Train   “A wondrous read … Pyenson’s enthusiasm is contagious.' --Bookpage 'Contagiously enthusiastic…. A fascinating and entertaining look at whales and the scientists who study them.' —Publishers Weekly “A hard-to-put-down quest to understand whales and their place on

Clinical Correlates in Anatomy and Physiology
39,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

One of the challenges for allied health students is correlating the information introduced in basic science classes to the clinical problems they see in the field. A good clinician in allied health is knowledgeable in anatomy, physiology, pathology and other science fields. They are able to quickly apply this knowledge to the clinical setting for good patient care. However, both students and instructors know that applying knowledge gleaned from basic science classes to their own clinical practice is not always easy. Using short vignettes, Clinical Correlates in Anatomy and Physiology illustrates clinical problems that align with the topics covered in a first year anatomy and physiology course. Students and instructors can use these vignettes to better understand the systems as they cover them in class. These illustrative examples pique student interest and serve as the basis for classroom discussion, as well as introduce the concepts of pathophysiology in the context of systems physiology. While designed for the allied health student, anyone with an interest in processes of health and disease will enjoy these short discussions illustrating clinical pathologies of systems physiology. Clinical Correlates in Anatomy and Physiology: - Uses a systemic approach to clinical applications, which correlates with the typical outline of anatomy and physiology textbooks. - Explores pathophysiology in more depth than the traditional 'clinical box' approach that only provides a snippet of information. - Provides introductory material that explains the importance of each system, allowing for seamless integration into any anatomy and physiology course as a supplement. Mary Katherine Lockwood received a B.S. in Biology from Davidson College in North Carolina, an M.S. in Physiology from the Pennsylvania State University, and a Ph.D. in Public Health with a concentration in Nutrition and Biological Chemistry from the University of California, Los Angeles. Dr. Lockwood is a Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Biomedical Sciences at the University of New Hampshire where she teaches Anatomy and Physiology and Clinical Nutrition. In addition, she is licensed in New Hampshire as an Instructor/Coordinator for Emergency Medical Services, teaches Emergency Medicine and CPR, and responds with a 911 ambulance service as an EMT-Intermediate.

A Fish Story
13,99 € *
zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

Who Should Read This Book and Why? A Fish Story is a simple guide to successful marketing. It is intended for small business owners, entrepreneurs and beginning marketers with minimal experience. Steve demystifies the art of marketing in this lighthearted guide. You'll learn proven techniques to help you identify, attract and connect with your audience, pique their curiosity, and motivate them to take action. In the beginning it will take time and effort. But be confident in knowing you can become skilled in using these techniques to attract not only more customers to your business, but the right customers, the customers your business needs to grow and prosper. Note From The Author: In a competitive marketplace, you need to do more than simply keep your existing customers happy. To grow your business, you need to bring on new customers, and that means effective marketing. A Fish Story portrays marketing in such a way that any small business owner or entrepreneur can quickly understand and grasp the importance of marketing even at its most basic level. The skills and techniques used to illustrate the sport of bass fishing may not be entirely accurate in the eyes of a skilled fisherman. I have used some personal knowledge of the sport to add a level of credibility. Additionally, I have taken creative liberties where needed to best align the story and characters with the fundamental steps and principles of marketing. As you begin to implement the tools provided in the story, you will move towards a greater level of understanding of the value of marketing. Although you may not immediately grasp every element needed for success, with time, study, and help from an experienced mentor, you will learn and appreciate them.
