Sie sind schön, sie haben Geld, sie sind begabt: Emanuela, Simon, Franny, Jess. Mit zielstrebiger Selbstverständlichkeit nehmen sie jede Hürde ihres Studiums in Oxford und sie sind die Freunde von Marc, der lässiger ist als alle anderen, entwaffnend charmant, offenkundig promisk und geradezu obszön reich. James würde alles dafür geben dazuzugehören. Als Jess sich in ihn verliebt, geht dieser Wunsch in Erfüllung, mehr noch, Marc bittet sie alle, bei ihm einzuziehen. Keiner widersteht diesem Angebot und bald belebt eine exklusive WG den alten Herrensitz, mit rauschenden Partys und wechselnden Liebschaften. Ohne es selbst zu merken, verstrickt sich James in eine Abhängigkeit von Marc, aus der er sich, auch als die Gemeinschaft auseinandergeht und trotz seiner Liebe zu Jess, kaum befreien kann. Mit scharfem Blick und scharfer Zunge porträtiert Naomi Alderman eine ganz besondere Facette der geschlossenen Gesellschaft einer Eliteuni versität und lotet dabei die Kräfteverhältnisse von Ehrgeiz und Einsamkeit aus, von Liebe und Macht.

Mastering Non-Verbal Reasoning

A step-by-step guide to non-verbal reasoning. Mastering Non-Verbal Reasoning (the secrets to passing non-verbal reasoning exams, exposed) is unlike any other book of its kind. Most books of this nature contain only questions, whereas this book details methods and techniques in a step-by-step guide that should enable anyone to solve non-verbal problems from the topics covered. In a series of steps, hints and tips for working out non-verbal questions, Terrence Millington reveals what he calls his 'fail-proof' method that has been refined and perfected over the course of several years. He has already helped a high percentage of children to pass entrance exams in the subject, and has released this book in order to help as many more children as possible to achieve the same. The book can also be used effectively to help parents understand non-verbal reasoning. With a 'Message to Parents' section that offers advice on how to get the best out of the book, the author has provided a great opportunity for mums and dads who don’t understand the subject to overcome this problem and help their children with questions. "I see non-verbal reasoning like mathematics; in maths you learn a formula and if you remember it you are able to answer any like question. I provide children with the formulae for non-verbal reasoning; if they learn my methods and techniques they should be able to answer any resembling non-verbal question." Terrence Millington comments on his reasons behind Mastering Non-Verbal Reasoning. Tailored towards those that are applying for 11+ entrance exams to private and grammar schools,Mastering Non-Verbal Reasoning is an essential guide for children and their parents alike.

Keith Moon: Dear Boy

Author: Tony Fletcher

Publisher: Bosworth Music

ISBN: 0857122800

Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 748

View: 2507

RECORD COLLECTOR BOOK OF THE YEAR 1998: The Epic biography of rock's wildest superstar. Keith Moon was more than just rock's greatest drummer, he was also its greatest character...and wildest party animal. Fuelled by vast quantities of drink, drugs, insecurities and confusion, Moon destroyed everything with gleeful abandon: drum kits, houses, cars, hotels, relationships and, finally, himself. In Dear Boy, Tony Fletcher has captured lightning in a bottle - the essence of a totally incorrigible yet uniquely generous boy who never grew up, and who changed the lives of all who knew him. From a life distorted by myths of debauchery and comic anarchy, Fletcher has created a searingly personal portrait of Keith Moon. From over 100 first-hand interviews, he traces with deadly accuracy Moon's remarkable journey from his working-class Northwest London childhood, through the Who's glory years to the California high-life and a sad, premature death. Here too are fascinating insights into the history of the Who and the emergent British pop culture revolution of post-war years. Keith Moon was one of the shock troops of that revolution: the world's greatest rock drummer, a phenomenal character and an extravagant hell-raiser who - in a final, uncharacteristic act of grace - actually did die before he got old. Illustrated with many photos from personal and Who archives. This is the 2005 Updated version with a new and extended afterword.

Patient Centered Care in Medical Imaging and Radiotherapy

Author: Aarthi Ramlaul,Martin Vosper

Publisher: Elsevier Health Sciences

ISBN: 0702055239

Category: Medical

Page: 328

View: 5659

Health investigation and treatment have moved from a clinician-centred approach to a patient-centred approach during the past few decades. Patients are now rightly regarded as empowered and informed users of health services, not passive recipients. Motivated by this philosophical shift, this new book identifies the key issues underpinning the complete delivery of ‘good’ patient care and considers their application in the medical radiation sciences. Taking a UK/European perspective, the authors examine how a holistic approach is related to legislation, human rights and perceived patient needs. Medical imaging and radiotherapy are front line services experienced by vast numbers of patients with acute and chronic medical conditions, including trauma and cancer. The book includes coverage of behavioural science and health psychology together with practical applications such as safe manual handling, infection control and radiation safety. This provides the reader with a comprehensive understanding of what contributes to the patient’s experience in diagnostic imaging and radiotherapy. It also considers other aspects of the patient experience, such as inter-professional team working, disability, communication, clinical procedures and practice.
