  • From the New York Times bestselling Julie James comes this "tantalizing dessert--a delicious delightful read that all hopeless romantics will enjoy" (Chicago Sun-Times). For fans of Susan Mallery and Rachel Gibson. WHEN IT COMES TO THE LAWS OF ATTRACTION… Payton Kendall and J.D. Jameson are lawyers who know the meaning of objection. A feminist to the bone, Payton has fought hard to succeed in a profession dominated by men. Born wealthy, privileged, and cocky, J.D. has fought hard to ignore her. Face to face, they’re perfectly civil. They have to be. For eight years they’ve kept a safe distance and tolerated each other as co-workers for one reason only: to make partner at the firm. …THERE ARE NO RULES. But all bets are off when they’re asked to join forces on a major case. At first apprehensive, they begin to appreciate each other’s dedication to the law—and the sparks between them quickly turn into attraction. But the increasingly hot connection doesn’t last long when they discover that only one of them will be named partner. Now it’s an all out war. And the battle between the sexes is bound to make these lawyers hot under the collar…

  • Have you ever wondered what is going on inside your doctor's head when you're behind that closed examination room door? Practice Makes Perfect: How One Doctor Found the Meaning of Lives helps us to understand the potential depth, sanctity, and humor within the doctor-patient relationship from both perspectives, as Dr. David Roberts makes rounds and cares for patients.Dr. Roberts has just completed his medical training and starts out in the private practice of Internal Medicine in a Midwestern college town. He is twenty-nine years old, but looks sixteen, inspiring most patients to comment, “You look too young to be a doctor!” On his first week of hospital rounds, an angry middle-aged man dies in such a dramatic, direct manner that our doctor, and the young nurse working with him, believe he has killed this patient. From this point onward, we listen and learn with Dr. Roberts and Dr. Mark Edwards, his senior partner, as they together navigate their first five years of private practice as primary care physicians. Written in the currently popular narrative non-fiction style, throughout Practice Makes Perfect the reader follows Dr. Roberts as he cares for twenty different and unique patients. As he encounters each new human being seeking help, we are invited inside the good physician's head to see and better understand the complexity of both successful and strained patient-doctor relationships. The reader sees him quickly formulate his initial impressions, analyze the data, argue with himself and sometimes others, including his patients, and struggle with his own doubts and certainties in order to help his patients to heal.Through a series of fascinating, humorous, and poignant patient stories, this “professional coming of age” book chronicles Dr. Robert's journey of finding the human dignity in each patient and learning something about himself, to a growing confidence in his abilities as a physician. Using a lively and entertaining style, the author takes us inside his own mind to help us understand what doctors think, say and do, (and what they don't say or do), each time we walk into the examination room as patients seeking help for our maladies.We see Doctor Roberts honestly reflect upon his own failures, successes, doubts and certainties, to learn the truth that his patients have to teach him about life. In discovering each person's innate dignity, he finds his own true calling as a physician and healer.Each chapter begins with an epigraph, setting the stage for the patient story. In addition to meeting and learning from each patient, the reader also follows the growth and development of the fledgling practice from the first two physicians, Drs. Edwards and Roberts, to the addition of new partners, until they at last outgrow their small office and move to a new professional office building adjacent to their hospital. Recognized as one of America's Best Doctors for many years, the author's broad experiences as a practicing physician, a hospital and medical group executive, and national speaker allow him to paint an exciting and heartrending portrait of our healthcare system, and help the reader to find his or her place within it.You simply cannot listen to the news these days without hearing about what is wrong with healthcare. In stark contrast, seeing patients with Dr. Roberts helps us understand both what is right, and what could be better, about ourselves and our relationships with physicians, as we seek and then discover with him the dignity of each human spirit.

  • THE HILARIOUS AND HEARTFELT NEW NOVEL FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF OUT OF PRACTICE! ‘If dishy doctors, cute dogs, hilarious OAPs and idyllic country settings are your thing, you’re in for a treat with this second novel set at a GP practice in the village of Larkford. Funny, moving, romantic and full of characters you’ll love – it’s perfect in every way’ Heat The Practice at Larkford has suddenly been thrust under the spotlight – and its nomination as a ‘NHS Model Surgery’ is causing the team major headaches. Dr Holly Graham should be basking in the glow of her new romance with fellow doctor, Taffy – but she is worried that the team is prioritising plaudits over patients, and her favourite resident, the irreverent and entertaining Elsie, is facing a difficult diagnosis. Add to that the chaos of family life and the strain is starting to show. Dr Dishy Dan Carter’s obsession with work is masking unhappiness elsewhere – he can’t persuade girlfriend Julia to settle down. It’s only as Julia’s mother comes to stay that he realizes what she has been hiding for so long. Alice Walker joins the team like a breath of fresh air and her assistance dog Coco quickly wins everyone round – which is just as well, because Coco and Alice will soon need some help of their own. Can they pull together and become the Dream Team that the NHS obviously thinks they are? Out of Practice won the Romantic Comedy of the Year category of the RNA Awards.

  • Have you ever noticed that we tend to compartmentalize when teaching our children? In real life, there aren’t artificial barriers between “subjects.” For example, when you are cooking or baking, you have to use the skills of reading, logical thinking, and measuring, just to name a few. In driving a car, you see and read road signs, read maps, and count miles. It has become quite clear that there is an abundance of math curriculums available that are nothing but monotonous drill sheets dressed up in pretty colors. Pretty colors do not make a living book. Content, story, and the ability to show math in real life make a living math book. Math Level 1: Teach math lessons through the creative means of a life storyProvides a link for the downloadable answer keyHas a scope and sequence that contains learning numbers 0 to 100, circles and patterns, counting and addition, days of the week, and telling time. This book was written to be used by you and your young student together. It is the story of a twin brother and sister, Charlie and Charlotte, who are visiting their grandparents’ farm. They soon learn that the farm is full of learning opportunities! As you read their story, your students will be drawn into the adventure along with the twins. They will learn about numbers, shapes, place value, adding, and subtracting. They will also learn about gardening, baby animals on the farm, nature, and the love of family. They will hear exciting stories from Grandpa and Grandma, and they will be invited to join the twins on their living math adventures. We hope you have a grand time on this adventure!

  • Rules for developing talent with disciplined, deliberate, intelligent practice We live in a competition loving culture. We love the performance, the big win, the ticking seconds of the clock as the game comes down to the wire. We watch games and cheer, sometimes to the point of obsession, but if we really wanted to see greatness—wanted to cheer for it, see it happen, understand what made it happen—we'd spend our time watching, obsessing on, and maybe even cheering the practices instead. This book puts practice on the front burner of all who seek to instill talent and achievement in others as well as in themselves. This is a journey to understand that practice, not games, makes champions. In this book, the authors engage the dream of better, both in fields and endeavors where participants know they should practice and also in those where many do not yet recognize the transformative power of practice. And it’s not just whether you practice. How you practice may be a true competitive advantage. Deliberately engineered and designed practice can revolutionize our most important endeavors. The clear set of rules presented in Practice Perfect will make us better in virtually every performance of life. The “how-to” rules of practice cover such topics as rethinking practice, modeling excellent practice, using feedback, creating a culture of practice, making new skills stick, and hiring for practice. Discover new ways to think about practice. Learn how to design successful practice. Apply practice across a wide range of realms, both personal and professional The authors include specific activities to jump-start practice Doug Lemov is the best-selling author of Teach Like a Champion A hands-on resource to practice, the rules within will help to create positive outliers and world-changing reservoirs of talent.
