Amazing Medical Stories

Goose Lane Editions


The twenty true tales in Amazing Medical Stories give a rich and entertaining picture of the ways in which medical workers (both real and fake) have used the keys to the mysterious kingdom of life: health, disease, and physical anomaly, birth, death, and post-mortem diagnosis. The stories run the gamut from tragedy to hilarity, from satisfaction of curiosity to evocation of terrible pity. Amazing Medical Stories deals with quacks and charlatans, the giants Angus McAskill and Anna Swan, the first case of antisocial personality disorder, as well as wonderous inventions and achievements by physicians.

Champagne and Meatballs

Athabasca University Press and Canadian Committee on Labour History | Working Canadians: Books from the CCLH


Active for over forty years with the Communist Party of Canada, Bert Whyte was a journalist, an underground party organizer and soldier during World War II, and a press correspondent in Beijing and Moscow. But any notion of him as a Communist party hack would be mistaken. Whyte never let leftist ideology get in the way of a great yarn. In Champagne and Meatballs — a memoir written not long before his death in Moscow in 1984 — we meet a cigar-smoking rogue who was at least as happy at a pool hall as at a political meeting. His stories of bumming across Canada in the 1930s, of combat and camaraderie at the front lines in World War II, and of surviving as a dissident in troubled times make for compelling reading.

The manuscript of Champagne and Meatballs was brought to light and edited by historian Larry Hannant, who has written a fascinating and thought-provoking introduction to the text. Brash, irreverent, informative, and entertaining, Whyte's tale is history and biography accompanied by a wink of his eye.

Wie kann man grandiose Arbeit leisten, ohne ein Arschloch zu sein?

Stiebner


Seit jeher gelten lange Arbeitszeiten, chaotische Arbeitsabläufe und egoistische Kollegen in der Kreativbranche als selbstverständlich. Offenbar meint man, sich solche Bedingungen im kreativen Bereich leisten zu können – als wären sie geradezu eine Voraussetzung für grandiose Arbeitsleistungen. Tatsächlich ist eine derart vergiftete Unternehmenskultur der Feind jeder Kreativität. Paul Woods zeigt, wie sich diese Zeitbombe entschärfen lässt, in dem man eine Arbeitsatmosphäre schafft, von der alle profitieren. Ob Director oder Junior, ob Agentur- oder Kundenseite, in den Bereichen Design, Werbung, Verlagswesen, Mode oder Film – in diesem Buch finden alle eine amüsant-unverblümte Lektüre voller Anekdoten und erhellender Flussdiagramme zur Selbstanalyse. Hinzu kommen vielen Übungen und Aktionspläne für bessere, d. h. produktivere Arbeitsweisen. All das zusammen ergibt eine verblüffend einfache Strategie, die sich leicht in den Arbeitsalltag integrieren lässt und zu dem Ergebnis führt, dass das Team glücklicher und produktiver und damit letztlich sogar noch erfolgreicher wird.
