The Ultimate Medical Mnemonic Comic Book is a FUN & EFFECTIVE way to learn and remember the medical disorders we often forget. This book is designed for physicians, residents, physician assistants, nurses, nursing students and other medical personnel. What separates this book apart from the traditional mnemonic concept is that the mnemonics are incorporated in a sentence that explains the disease so the pathophysiology is part of the mnemonics, leading to a deeper, "second level" understanding of the concepts. In addition the visual cartoons helps to stimulate long term retention for easy recall. Also available in Color.

One of Wall Street Journal’s Best of 2017 “Entertainingly mixes thrills and humor.”—Entertainment Weekly “[An] amazing debut novel. . . . Dazzling and complex. . . . Fearlessly funny storytelling.”—The Washington Post “Instantly engaging. . . . A timeless, if mind-bending, story about the journeys we take, populated by friends, family, lovers, and others, that show us who we might be, could be—and maybe never should be—that eventually leads us to who we are.”—USA Today Elan Mastai's acclaimed debut novel is a story of friendship and family, of unexpected journeys and alternate paths, and of love in its multitude of forms. It's 2016, and in Tom Barren's world, technology has solved all of humanity's problems—there's no war, no poverty, no under-ripe avocadoes. Unfortunately, Tom isn't happy. He's lost the girl of his dreams. And what do you do when you're heartbroken and have a time machine? Something stupid. Finding himself stranded in a terrible alternate reality—which we immediately recognize as our 2016—Tom is desperate to fix his mistake and go home. Right up until the moment he discovers wonderfully unexpected versions of his family, his career, and the woman who may just be the love of his life. Now Tom faces an impossible choice. Go back to his perfect but loveless life. Or stay in our messy reality with a soulmate by his side. His search for the answer takes him across continents and timelines in a quest to figure out, finally, who he really is and what his future—our future—is supposed to be. Filled with humor and heart and packed with insight, intelligence, and mind-bending invention, All Our Wrong Todays is a powerful and moving story of life, loss, and love.
Anatomy Studymate explains human anatomy the way it is meant to be explained, by maps and mnemonics instead of complicated pictures and long paragraphs. This book has 5 chapters covering the main regions of the body: upper limb, lower limb, thorax, abdomen & pelvis and head & neck. It includes 235 topics further divided into 131 easy to remember mnemonics, 51 maps for a simple diagrammatic view of various anatomical structures, 30 tables summarizing almost all the muscles of the human body and finally 23 summary verses for extremely important topics that couldn't fit in one of the previous 3 categories, and yet can not be ignored. This book is simply my study notes during my undergraduate study, then the exams for the master's degree in surgery, and finally the step A exam of the membership of the royal college of surgeons (MRCS). And don't worry, I passed them all, so you can depend on this book for a valid reason. Anatomy Studymate is not meant to replace anatomy text books. Unless coffee mate was meant to replace coffee. Think of it like a side dish, that can't feed you alone. Yet, it adds a flavor to your meal. Ok!! Enough coffee and dinner talk. Bottom line, this book can really help you in many ways. When you study a topic for the first time, it can offer you a simpler -or sometimes deeper insights. Writing the mnemonics in your main source next to each topic is a good idea. Also during revision, I think that condensing the important topics of anatomy in 150 low-text and details-free pages can be helpful. At last during your postgraduate study, this book can be particularly helpful to remember the highlights and the hot topics, which are always the core of exams like masters, PhD and even MRCS.

"Fascinating.... Lays a foundation for understanding human history."—Bill Gates In this "artful, informative, and delightful" (William H. McNeill, New York Review of Books) book, Jared Diamond convincingly argues that geographical and environmental factors shaped the modern world. Societies that had had a head start in food production advanced beyond the hunter-gatherer stage, and then developed religion --as well as nasty germs and potent weapons of war --and adventured on sea and land to conquer and decimate preliterate cultures. A major advance in our understanding of human societies, Guns, Germs, and Steel chronicles the way that the modern world came to be and stunningly dismantles racially based theories of human history. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the Phi Beta Kappa Award in Science, the Rhone-Poulenc Prize, and the Commonwealth club of California's Gold Medal.
Life of Pi is a masterful and utterly original novel that is at once the story of a young castaway who faces immeasurable hardships on the high seas, and a meditation on religion, faith, art and life that is as witty as it is profound. Using the threads of all of our best stories, Yann Martel has woven a glorious spiritual adventure that makes us question what it means to be alive, and to believe.
