Here you will find relevant advice from an attorney who has been writing trial and appellate briefs on the frontlines for two decades.

And the gloves come off when he addresses legal ethics in the Epilogue - "Welcome to the Dark Side" - a must-read for every law student who intends to become a practicing lawyer.

I CAN'T BELIEVE SHE DID THAT! offers a new and compelling perspective on conflict and competition among women in the workplace. Nan Mooney explores how and why some women hurt each other on the job, and what we can do to begin cleaning up the mess. Based on real stories from real women, I CAN'T BELIEVE SHE DID THAT! provides a provocative social and cultural exploration of the often troubled and painful dynamics that unfold among female coworkers. The massive influx of women into the workplace in the past thirty years means a whole new category of problems has arisen. Suddenly women are working over, under and alongside other women. Their professional relationships are subject to the pressures and conflicts of organizational culture, not to mention society at large. Women on the job have grown more comfortable with ambition, competition, management and success, but that hasn't negated the value they place on communication and relationships, on being liked and being nice. Striking a balance between these two selves is a delicate undertaking and many women are uncertain how to interact in a workplace where such lines are regularly being blurred. Working together, women have fostered a breathtaking degree of positive change. But there is another side to the story. If women are to continue moving forward, the time has come to examine — honestly and unequivocally — our very human impulse to compete with, hurt and even destroy one another to get what we want. In I CAN'T BELIEVE SHE DID THAT! Nan Mooney provides vivid insights on the emotional toll competition can take on women in business and charts a path towards more productive and fulfilling relationships for professional women everywhere.
The Indie Author's Guide to Finding and Hiring the Right Editor for Your Book

“The first critical step in self-publishing your book is finding a great editor. Sarah’s book will pay for itself 100 times over.” —Mark Levine, CEO of Hillcrest Media Group and author of The Fine Print of Self-Publishing Even in self-publishing—perhaps especially in self-publishing—editing remains a critical step toward publishing a high-quality, professional book. But how do new authors go from finishing their first manuscripts to actually working with an editor? For authors new to independent publishing, the idea of hiring a professional editor can be daunting. Concerns may include: What does an editor do? Do I really need an editor for my book? How do I know what kind of editing my book needs? Where can I find beta readers? How can I find a great editor when I’m not an editor myself? How to Hire an Editor shows authors new to the publishing process how to make sure their manuscripts receive the editorial attention they deserve, even with a self-publisher’s unique production schedule, budget constraints, and publishing goals. Author and editor Sarah Kolb-Williams provides an in-depth look at the editing process squarely from a self-publishing perspective. She breaks the complex world of editing down into manageable pieces, making the entire process a little more accessible and a little less overwhelming for authors who have never worked with a professional editor before. If you know you need editing but you’re just not sure where to start, How to Hire an Editor will demystify the process. You’ll discover effective ways to self-edit, work with beta readers, avoid scams and unqualified editors, and find the perfect editor for your book.
We instinctively know that exercise, eating the right things, and taking vitamins sustains our health, maintains our youth, and offers a sense of wellbeing. Traditional fitness publications do a great job telling you what to do, but lack any explanation as to the why and how. They offer a map to youth by micromanaging your diet, exercise and or supplements. You blindly follow their lead in expectation of finding your fountain of youth through their training. Every body is different, which is why one map may work for one person, but not another; maybe it failed you, so you try another. What you may not realize is that although they offer step by step instruction to find the fountain, they are not teaching you how to read the map. Although the map is the same, the directions are different for each of us to find the fountain of youth. the difference between the layperson and expert is their ability to read the map as a whole; that map is our anatomy. That cartography lesson is learned by teaching you how exercise, diet and supplements work rather than being told what in the same to follow. At the end of the lesson, you may now understand that your journey may require parts of many methods, rather than the single direction of one. the author shares his own journey as he teaches you how to read the map, so you understand how one has successfully read the map to discover his fountain of youth.

Die Bedeutung von Introvertierten in einer lauten Welt
Author: Susan Cain
Publisher: Riemann Verlag
Selbstsicheres Auftreten und die Beherrschung von Small Talk sind nicht alles. Susan Cains glänzendes Plädoyer für die Qualitäten der Stillen. „Ein leerer Topf klappert am lautesten“. Aber wer der Welt etwas Bedeutendes schenken will, benötigt Zeit und Sorgfalt, um es in Stille reifen zu lassen. „Still“ ist ein Plädoyer für die Ruhe, die in unserer Welt des Marktgeschreis und der Klingeltöne zu verschwinden droht. Und für leise Menschen, die lernen sollten, zu ihrem „So-Sein“ zu stehen. Ohne sie hätten wir heute keine Relativitätstheorie, keinen „Harry Potter“, keine Klavierstücke Chopins, und auch die Suchmaschine „Google“ wäre nie entwickelt worden. „Still“ baut eine Brücke zwischen den Welten, kritisiert aber das gesellschaftliche Ungleichgewicht zugunsten der Partylöwen und Dampfplauderer. Es herrscht eine „extrovertierte Ethik“, die stille Wasser zwingt, sich anzupassen oder unterzugehen. Ihre Eigenschaften – Ernsthaftigkeit, Sensibilität und Scheu – gelten eher als Krankheitssymptome denn als Qualitäten. Zu unrecht, sagt Susan Cain, und stellt sich gegen den Trend, der „selbstbewusstes Auftreten“ verherrlicht. „Still“ ist das Kultbuch für Introvertierte, hilft aber auch Extrovertierten, ihre Mitmenschen besser zu verstehen.

Was fühlt ein Tier, wie lebt es und wie nimmt es seine Umwelt wahr? Um das herauszufinden, tritt Charles Foster ein faszinierendes Experiment an. Er schlüpft in die Rolle von fünf verschiedenen Tierarten: Dachs, Otter, Fuchs, Rothirsch und Mauersegler. Er haust in einem Bau unter der Erde, schnappt mit den Zähnen nach Fischen in einem Fluss und durchstöbert Mülltonnen auf der Suche nach Nahrung. Er schärft seine Sinne, wird zum nachtaktiven Lebewesen, beschreibt wie ein Weinkenner die unterschiedlichen »Terroirs« von Würmern und wie sich der Duft der Erde in den verschiedenen Jahreszeiten verändert. In die scharfsinnige und witzige Schilderung seiner skurrilen Erfahrungen lässt er wissenswerte Fakten einfließen und stellt sie in den Kontext philosophischer Themen. Letztendlich geht es dabei auch um die eine Frage: Was es bedeutet, Mensch zu sein.
Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.
