When They Come for You (Harper McDaniel)

An Amazon Charts bestseller.

After her journalist husband and infant son are brutally executed in a fire in their Florida home, photographer Harper McDaniel has nothing left to live for—except settling the score. When the local police fail to take the arson seriously, Harper takes the reins and discovers her husband was investigating some mysterious deaths at a cacao plantation on the Ivory Coast. Now she’s convinced he was targeted in a corporate conspiracy to silence him.

Aided by her former mafioso grandfather and well-connected financier brother, Harper embarks on a global manhunt, flying first to Africa, then Zurich to expose a high-level cover-up inside a powerful chocolate conglomerate.

But Harper has a few secrets of her own—starting with her lethal martial arts skills—and she’s not afraid to take on any hired guns or guerrillas standing in her way. In trying to cover their tracks, the conspirators made one fatal miscalculation: they didn’t count on Harper McDaniel coming for them.

Objective Assessment of Hearing (Core Clinical Concepts in Audiology)
This book bridges the gap between theory and clinical application for electro-acoustic and electro-physiologic assessment of hearing loss across the age range. Strategies and techniques for screening and diagnosis of hearing loss are presented clearly and simply. The authors incorporate findings of accumulated clinical experience and recent clinical research in a readable review of electro-acoustic measures (immittance measures and otoacoustic emissions) and electro-physiologic measures (electrocochleography, ABR and ASSR) that are essential for best practice in audiology today.

Beginning and Intermediate Algebra: The Language & Symbolism of Mathematics
Beginning and Intermediate Algebra: The Language and Symbolism of Mathematics emphasizes what great mathematicians had identified for generations - mathematics is everywhere! Authors James Hall and Brian Mercer believe active student involvement remains the key to learning algebra. Topics in the text are organized by using the principles of the AMATYC standards as a guide, giving strong support to teachers using the text. The book's organization and pedagogy are designed to work for students with a variety of learning styles and for teachers with varied experiences and backgrounds. The inclusion of the "rule of four" or multiple perspectives -- verbal, numerical, algebraic, and graphical -- has proven popular with a broad cross section of students.

A key supplement for the text are the Lecture Guides. This supplement by the authors, with the assistance of Kelly Bails of Parkland College, provides instructors with the framework of day-by-day class activities for each section in the book. Each lecture guide can help instructors make more efficient use of class time and can help keep students focused on active learning. Students who use the lecture guides have the framework of well-organized notes that can be completed with the instructor in class.

Otoacoustic Emissions: Principles, Procedures, and Protocols (Core Clinical Concepts in Audiology)
Otoacoustic emissions now play an important role in hearing screening and the clinical assessment of children and adults. However, a new wave of evidence is challenging our fundamental understanding regarding OAE sources and mechanisms. Similarly, just as we have settled on methods and protocols for clinical uses of otoacoustic emissions, ongoing research suggests new opportunities for evidence-based clinical applications. In Otoacoustic Emissions: Principles, Procedures, and Protocols, Drs. Dhar and Hall have collected the latest information on OAEs from basic research to clinical applications. The book is concise, but comprehensive, and covers the essentials of the subject from innovative and up-to-date perspectives. The material covered in the book is appropriate for intermediate and advanced students, and ideal for practitioners. With a consistent focus on practical information needed by the clinical audiologist, and a eye to future developments, authors Dhar and Hall systematically raise and answer questions necessary for a thorough understanding of OAEs, and an appreciation of their clinical value.

New Handbook for Auditory Evoked Responses

Written for graduate students and practicing clinicians, the New Handbook for Auditory Evoked Responses is an up-to-date and comprehensive source of practical information about auditory evoked responses, from electro-cochleography to cortical responses.

 

Authored by a clinical audiologist who records auditory evoked responses daily in his clinical practice, this book maintains a consistent writing-style and difficulty level from beginning to end.  The content is of direct interest to clinical audiologists and others involved in the clinical measurement of auditory evoked responses. The book includes an extensive review of test principles, protocols, and procedures required for clinical application of auditory evoked responses. The practical coverage of material includes guidelines for trouble-shooting and solving problems commonly encountered in the field.

 

Principles common to different auditory evoked responses, including anatomy and physiology and general measurement principles (Chs. 1-3), are introduced, allowing readers to learn the material from only this source without having to purchase an additional book to master the basics. At least one chapter is devoted to each major auditory evoked response, beginning with cochlear responses and continuing to the cortical evoked responses, electric evoked responses, and non-auditory responses (Chs. 4-16).  Readers are taught to record, analyze and interpret responses for various patient populations (Chs. 4-16).  Includes readable and clinically oriented reviews of extensive literature on complex responses, such as the P300 and MMN (Chs. 4-16), making it the only book of its kind to present a balanced coverage of evoked responses recorded from the entire auditory system (cochlea to cortex).  The literature on auditory evoked responses in diverse pathologies is reviewed and related to back to clinical practice so that readers do not have to locate additional journal articles (Chs. 4-16).  Important concepts, including the effects of measurement parameters and pathologies on auditory evoked responses, are illustrated through hundreds of clear drawings, to help enhance learning (Chs. 4-16).

The Oxford Guide to United States Supreme Court Decisions
The Supreme Court has been the site of some of the great debates of American history, from child labor and prayer in the schools, to busing and abortion. The Oxford Guide to United States Supreme Court Decisions offers lively and insightful accounts of the most important cases ever argued before the Court, from Marbury v. Madison and Scott v. Sandford (the Dred Scott decision) to Brown v. Board of Education and Roe v. Wade.

This new edition of the Guide contains more than 450 entries on major Supreme Court cases, including 53 new entries on the latest landmark rulings. Among the new entries are Bush v. Gore, Nixon v. United States, Gonzales v. Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and Rumsfeld v. Forum for Academic and Institutional Rights. Four decisions (Hamdi v. Bush, Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, Rasu v. Bush, and Rumsfeld v. Padilla) are considered in a single essay entitled "Enemy Combatant Cases." Arranged alphabetically and written by eminent legal scholars, each entry provides the United States Reports citation, the date the case was argued and decided, the vote of the Justices, who wrote the opinion for the Court, who concurred, and who dissented. More important, the entries feature an informative account of the particulars of the case, the legal and social background, the reasoning behind the Courts decision, and the cases impact on American society. For this edition, Ely has added an extensive Further Reading section and revised the Case Index and Topical Index.

For anyone interested in the great controversies of our time, this invaluable book is a must reada primer on the epic constitutional battles that have informed American life.
