Who wouldn't benefit from knowing what their test is going to look like? Being prepared with Fundamentals Success meant I hit the ground running. I aced my first test when most of my classmates were facing their first ever-academic failures. Nursing school is nothing like anything I have ever done before, memorizing text books will do little to prepare you to be a critical thinker. To succeed you must be able to apply the knowledge in multi-step process...the nursing process! The FA Davis books take you there and they do it quickly, because we nursing students needed to know it yesterday!” —Corrie Cyre, Hillsborough Community College Southshore, Student Nurses Association President

Um Hilfe zu bitten fällt uns oft schwer, weil wir Angst haben, schwach und bedürftig zu scheinen. Eine völlig falsche Sichtweise, meint Amanda Palmer. Die Musikerin ist eine wahre Expertin darin, sich helfen zu lassen, bat sie doch bei unzähligen Gelegenheiten um die Unterstützung ihrer Fans. Dabei hat sie erfahren, dass der ausgetauschte Gefallen stets für beide Seiten ein Gewinn ist. Wer um Hilfe bittet, zeigt sich zwar verletzlich, erhält aber auch die Chance, Vertrauen zu beweisen und Beziehungen aufzubauen. Amanda Palmer hat ein großes Buch über Menschlichkeit geschrieben; über Ängste und Schwächen und über die Kraft der Güte und des Vertrauens.

Ein Buch über das Sterben, das das Leben lehrt Die Medizin scheint über Krankheit und Tod zu triumphieren, doch sterben wir so trostlos wie nie zuvor. Der Bestsellerautor und renommierte Arzt Atul Gawande schreibt in seinem beeindruckenden Buch über das, was am Ende unseres Lebens wirklich zählt.

Ein mutiges und weises Buch eines großartigen Autors, voller Geschichten und eigener Erfahrungen, das uns hilft, die Geschichte unseres Lebens gut zu Ende zu erzählen. »Dieses Buch ist nicht nur weise und sehr bewegend, sondern gerade in unserer Zeit unbedingt notwendig und sehr aufschlussreich.« Oliver Sacks »Die medizinische Betreuung ist mehr auf Heilung ausgelegt als auf das Sterben. Dies ist Atuls Gawandes stärkstes und bewegendstes Buch.« Malcolm Gladwell
