The course is organized around a mnemonic device, developed by Professor Freeman, that can serve in any negotiation situation. Called "I FORESAW IT," this indispensable framework guides you in assembling the strongest possible case, showing you how to evaluate such factors as creative options, independent criteria, and your best alternative to a negotiated agreement.

A Short History of Nearly Everything is Bill Bryson's fascinating and humorous quest to understand everything that has happened from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization. He takes subjects that normally bore the pants off most of us, like geology, chemistry, and particle physics, and aims to render them comprehensible to people who have never thought they could be interested in science. In the company of some extraordinary scientists, Bill Bryson reveals the world in a way most of us have never seen it before.

This book is amazing in the breadth of knowledge that is covered and because it is written by a non-specialist is highly accessible. Whilst I cannot know about all the areas covered, in my own field of specialist knowledge, the information and the way it was written was very good - interesting and informative. The reader did not always get the pronunciation correct for the scientific terms, but perhaps this was not very surprising, as he was presumably also a non-specialist. Highly recommended

Benjamin Daniels is angry. He is frustrated, confused, baffled and, quite frequently, very funny. He is also a GP. These are his confessions.A woman troubled by pornographic dreams about Tom Jones. An 80-year-old man who can't remember why he's come to see the doctor.

This is an entertaining book with some more serious strands in the anecdoctal stories that are presented. There are some stories that perhaps would be better not told in this way, but all would be recognised by many practicing doctors, and people in allied medical professions. Contrary to some of the other reviews, my feeling is that Dr Daniels is probably an excellent doctor.

This is an excellent mix of personal autobiography and very interesting research on contribution of women to our modern society. Professional life, especially at the top in academia, and even more in business is still very much dominated by men. This book reminds us of the struggles and achievements of women who have gone before us. As an audiobook, it is well read and very easy to listen to.
