    Description:

    A valuable resource on how to diagnose and treat temporomandibular disorders (TMD)

    The newly and thoroughly revised 2nd Edition of Temporomandibular Disorders: A Problem-Based Approach delivers a systematic and logical approach to diagnosing and treating temporomandibular disorders.

    Using a case-based approach to assist readers with understanding and retention, the book discusses the practical realities of managing patients and promoting effective treatment of temporomandibular disorders. Containing full colour clinical images and diagrams throughout, the chapters include practical guides on how to make splints and samples of patient information sheets which can be used as templates. Readers will get access to topics such as:

    The clinical aspects of anatomy, function, pathology, and classification

    Differential diagnosis of temporomandibular joint problems

    Clicking joint problems and the use of preliminary investigation in disc displacement

    Temporomandibular joint locking diagnosis and treatment, including final treatment plans

    Facial pain examinations, differential diagnosis, and questions to ask patients regarding pain in general

    Headaches, worn teeth, dislocated jaws, and more issues that arise in the treatment of temporomandibular joint problems

    Perfect for undergraduate dental students and general dental practitioners, the new edition of Temporomandibular Disorders is also useful to postgraduate dental students, academics, and researchers.

    `An amazing story, and truly inspiring. The kind of book everyone will enjoy. IT'S EVEN BETTER THAN YOU'VE HEARD.' - Bill GatesSelected as a book of the year by AMAZON, THE TIMES, SUNDAY TIMES, GUARDIAN, NEW YORK TIMES, ECONOMIST, NEW STATESMAN, VOGUE, IRISH TIMES, IRISH EXAMINER and RED MAGAZINE THE MULTI-MILLION COPY BESTSELLER________________________Tara Westover and her family grew up preparing for the End of Days but, according to the government, she didn't exist.

    She hadn't been registered for a birth certificate. She had no school records because she'd never set foot in a classroom, and no medical records because her father didn't believe in hospitals. As she grew older, her father became more radical and her brother more violent.

    At sixteen, Tara knew she had to leave home. In doing so she discovered both the transformative power of education, and the price she had to pay for it. ________________________* From one of TIME magazine's 100 most influential people of 2019* Shortlisted for the 2018 BAMB Readers' Awards* Recommended as a summer read by Barack Obama, Antony Beevor, India Knight, Blake Morrison and Nina Stibbe

    Book Description:

     

    Digital fundus images can effectively diagnose glaucoma and diabetes retinopathy, while infrared imaging can show changes in the vascular tissues. Likening the eye to the conventional camera, Image Analysis and Modeling in Ophthalmology explores the application of advanced image processing in ocular imaging. This book considers how images can be used to effectively diagnose ophthalmologic problems. It introduces multi-modality image processing algorithms as a means for analyzing subtle changes in the eye. It details eye imaging, textural imaging, and modeling, and highlights specific imaging and modeling techniques.

    The book covers the detection of diabetes retinopathy, glaucoma, anterior segment eye abnormalities, instruments on detection of glaucoma, and development of human eye models using computational fluid dynamics and heat transfer principles to predict inner temperatures of the eye from its surface temperature. It presents an ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) system for anterior chamber angle imaging and proposes an automated anterior segment eye disease classification system that can be used for early disease diagnosis and treatment management. It focuses on the segmentation of the blood vessels in high-resolution retinal images and describes the integration of the image processing methodologies in a web-based framework aimed at retinal analysis.

    The authors introduce the A-Levelset algorithm, explore the ARGALI system to calculate the cup-to-disc ratio (CDR), and describe the Singapore Eye Vessel Assessment (SIVA) system, a holistic tool which brings together various technologies from image processing and artificial intelligence to construct vascular models from retinal images. The text furnishes the working principles of mechanical and optical instruments for the diagnosis and healthcare administration of glaucoma, reviews state-of-the-art CDR calculation detail, and discusses the existing methods and databases.

    Image Analysis and Modeling in Ophthalmology includes the latest research development in the field of eye modeling and the multi-modality image processing techniques in ocular imaging. It addresses the differences, performance measures, advantages and disadvantages of various approaches, and provides extensive reviews on related fields.

    Addiction

     

    Când se transforma un obicei nevinovat in dependenta? De ce doar unii dintre noi devenim dependenti? Cum este posibila recuperarea?

    Există multe povești despre dependență și majoritatea se contrazic între ele.

    • Dependența este o boală sau o slăbiciune morală?

    • Este consecința inevitabilă a consumului de droguri sau este o alegere?

    • Dacă dependența este despre droguri, cum rămâne cu dependența de jocurile de noroc, sex, cumpărături, sport, jocuri video, mâncare, bani, putere?

    • Sunt și acestea adicții în adevăratul sens al cuvântului?

    • Legat de droguri, de ce nu devin dependenți toți cei care utilizează droguri?

    • Au unii oameni personalități pre­dispuse la adicții?

    Indiferent de răspunsuri, nu există nicio în­doială că avem de‑a face cu o problemă gravă.  

    Această carte este o încercare de a răspunde unora dintre întrebările și părerile contradictorii din jurul dependenței și al comportamentelor adictive și include câteva teme ce vor fi explo­rate de‑a lungul capitolelor. Adicția nu este o ratare din punct de vedere moral sau o alegere. Modelul de boală (sau medical), care înțelege adicția ca fiind o boală a creierului influențată de o vul­nerabilitate genetică, este bine cunoscut, dar are câteva minusuri semnificative. Fără îndoială, a considera adicția o boală este prea limitativ și vom explora această viziune mai detaliat în carte.

    Utilizarea drogurilor nu este sinonimă cu dependența de dro­guri, iar această diferență se aplică și altor comportamente adic­tive. Acest tip de comportamente se află la capătul extrem al unui spectru pe care ne aflăm toți; toate urmează aceleași procese pe care le utilizăm ca să identificăm și să urmărim lucruri pe care le considerăm importante pentru supraviețuirea personală. În cazul adicției, aceste obiceiuri devin adânc înrădăcinate și supraapre­ciate, prin urmare încep să elimine alte obiceiuri, care erau părți importante din viața noastră. Afirmație adevărată indiferent de obiectul adicției, fie el droguri, alcool, jocuri video sau muncă. Creierul nostru este „construit” în așa fel încât să creeze obiceiuri, iar obiceiurile cele mai puternice sunt cele care servesc nevoilor emoționale fundamentale: nevoia de apartenență, de siguranță și securitate, de control și autonomie, de eliberare de o durere ex­trem de puternică.

    Adicția îi păcălește pe oameni trimițându‑i după lucruri care, pe termen lung, nu le pot satisface nevoile, asemenea „fantomelor flămânde” din budismul tibetan: ființe cu abdomene uriașe, goale, dar cu guri mici, cât o gămălie de ac, așa că, indiferent ce mănâncă, nu sunt niciodată sătule. Autorul și medicul Gabor Maté a descris această imagine drept „domeniul adicției, în care căutăm constant ceva în afara noastră pentru a răspunde unei dorințe incontrolabile de eliberare sau de împli­nire”.

     

    Toți avem o anumită capacitate de a dezvolta comportamente adictive, iar anumiți factori biologici, psihologici și care aparțin mediului nostru social fac ca acest lucru să fie mai mult sau mai puțin probabil în diferite momente din viața noas­tră. 

     

    Music

     

     

    Cum ne afecteaza muzica starea de spirit? Care este cel mai bun mod de a‑ti dezvolta abilitatile muzicale? Cum variaza defi­nitia muzicii de la o cultura la alta?

     

    Music. Psihologia muzicii exploreaza impactul fundamental pe care muzica il are asupra vietii noastre de zi cu zi si influenta acesteia asupra societatii, grupurilor si indivizilor. Lucrarea de­monstreaza beneficiile muzicii in ceea ce priveste functionarea intelectului nostru, sanatatea si starea generala de bine si anali­zeaza talentul muzical dintr‑o dubla perspectiva: ca dar innascut si ca abilitate ce poate fi cultivata si dezvoltata prin practica si exercitiu.

    Muzica ne prilejuieste o mai buna intelegere a umanitatii si a vietii moderne, iar volumul de fata ne arata semnificatia ei si pu­terea pe care o rasfrange asupra comportamentului nostru.

    Fashion

     

    Ce spun despre noi hainele pe care le purtam? In ce mod ne afecteaza imbracamintea dispozitia si emotiile? Cum reuseste industria modei sa ne induca dorinta de a arata intr‑un anumit fel?

     Fashion. Psihologia modei ne ofera o introducere lucida in universul captivant si dinamic al modei, vazut in raport cu comportamentul uman, de la felul in care hainele ne pot afecta procesele cognitive pana la cel in care comerciantii manipuleaza reactiile consumatorilor. Cartea exploreaza capacitatea creatiei vestimentare de a influenta obiectivitatea percepţiei pe care o avem asupra propriei persoane, modul în care psihologia poate oferi o perspectivă mai practică asupra procesului de producţie și de reciclare a hainelor, precum și motivele pentru care dezvoltăm anumite obiceiuri consumeriste.

    Intr‑un moment in care strazile, revistele si canalele audiovizuale abunda de imagini promovand moda, volumul de fata ne arata cum hainele si psihologia pot aduce o schimbare pozitiva in vietile noastre.

     

    Sex

    Ce ne poate invata psihologia despre sex? Cum reacţioneaza oamenii – corpuri si minti diferite – atunci cand vine vorba despre sex? Cum putem sa ne opunem stigmatizarii oamenilor pe considerente ce tin de sexualitatea lor?

     

    Bun venit în lumea psihologiei sexului! Fie că îți place, fie că nu, cu toții trăim într‑o lume în care suntem bombardați constant cu informație, imagini și ideologii despre sex. Psihologia nu presupune doar descoperirea unor lucruri prin intermediul cercetării, ci și evaluarea lucrurilor din perspectivă psihologică și aplicarea principiilor psihologice în viața oamenilor. Așadar, dincolo de faptul că oferă o mulțime de informații despre sex din diferite teorii și studii, această carte pune la dispoziție și mijloacele pentru a gândi critic cu privire la mesajele transmise despre sex și la dezbaterile care se poartă pe tematici legate de acest subiect. De asemenea, conține o mulțime de informații despre felul în care cercetarea și ideile din psihologie pot fi aplicate în viață, în general, dar și despre felul în care le poți aplica tu, în propriile relații și experiențe.

    Cele cinci capitole prezintă o incursiune în ceea ce știm despre psihologia sexului, urmărind diferite aspecte: sexualitate (orientarea, identitatea și atracția sexuală), „actul” sexual sau contactul sexual, practicile și relațiile sexuale și ceea ce a fost numit de curând sexualizarea culturii. Fiecare capitol se bazează pe cărți și articole științifice, pe care le poți consulta apoi pentru a afla mai multe despre temele care te interesează. Veți găsi, de asemenea, și o listă de resurse, la finalul cărții, de unde puteți afla mai multe informații despre tematicile studiate.

    Sperăm că, pe tot parcursul acestei cărți, vei continua să te întrebi „Ce e psihologia?” și „Ce e sexul?” și că răspunsurile se vor schimba pe măsură ce citești. Așa cum se întâmplă cu majoritatea întrebărilor importante, nu există răspunsuri corecte nici pentru acestea; important și util este să continui să ți le pui și să observi cum se schimbă răspunsurile cu cât reflectezi mai mult asupra lor. Iar dacă psihologia sexului se dovedește utilă într‑o oarecare măsură, ea trebuie să răspundă și la întrebările practice, presante, pe care le avem cu privire la sex:

    • Cum putem împiedica stigmatizarea, marginalizarea sau chiar torturarea și uciderea oamenilor din cauza sexualității lor?

    • Cum putem ajuta oamenii care se confruntă cu probleme legate de sexualitate?

    • Cum putem reduce ratele îngrijorător de mari ale sexului abuziv și coercitiv?

    • Cum ar trebui să tratăm agresorii sexuali pentru a‑i împiedica să mai comită abuzuri sexuale și cum putem ajuta victimele acestor abuzuri?

    • Cum arată o viziune sănătoasă asupra sexului și cum am putea încuraja promovarea acesteia în media convențională, socială și sexuală?

    • Cum ar trebui să educăm copiii cu privire la sex?

Autorul și medicul Gabor Maté a descris această imagine drept „domeniul adicției, în care căutăm constant ceva în afara noastră pentru a răspunde unei dorințe incontrolabile de eliberare sau de împli­nire”.

     

    Toți avem o anumită capacitate de a dezvolta comportamente adictive, iar anumiți factori biologici, psihologici și care aparțin mediului nostru social fac ca acest lucru să fie mai mult sau mai puțin probabil în diferite momente din viața noas­tră.

    Fashion

     

    Ce spun despre noi hainele pe care le purtam? In ce mod ne afecteaza imbracamintea dispozitia si emotiile? Cum reuseste industria modei sa ne induca dorinta de a arata intr‑un anumit fel?

     Fashion. Psihologia modei ne ofera o introducere lucida in universul captivant si dinamic al modei, vazut in raport cu comportamentul uman, de la felul in care hainele ne pot afecta procesele cognitive pana la cel in care comerciantii manipuleaza reactiile consumatorilor. Cartea exploreaza capacitatea creatiei vestimentare de a influenta obiectivitatea percepţiei pe care o avem asupra propriei persoane, modul în care psihologia poate oferi o perspectivă mai practică asupra procesului de producţie și de reciclare a hainelor, precum și motivele pentru care dezvoltăm anumite obiceiuri consumeriste.

    Intr‑un moment in care strazile, revistele si canalele audiovizuale abunda de imagini promovand moda, volumul de fata ne arata cum hainele si psihologia pot aduce o schimbare pozitiva in vietile noastre.
    Prof. Carolyn Mair este consultant independent, specializat in psihologia modei. Colaboreaza cu institutii de invaţamant, companii producatoare de imbracaminte si canale mass‑media. A creat programele de licenta si de masterat in psihologia modei de la College of Fashion din Londra.

     

    Music

     

    Cum ne afecteaza muzica starea de spirit? Care este cel mai bun mod de a‑ti dezvolta abilitatile muzicale? Cum variaza defi­nitia muzicii de la o cultura la alta?

     

    Music. Psihologia muzicii exploreaza impactul fundamental pe care muzica il are asupra vietii noastre de zi cu zi si influenta acesteia asupra societatii, grupurilor si indivizilor. Lucrarea de­monstreaza beneficiile muzicii in ceea ce priveste functionarea intelectului nostru, sanatatea si starea generala de bine si anali­zeaza talentul muzical dintr‑o dubla perspectiva: ca dar innascut si ca abilitate ce poate fi cultivata si dezvoltata prin practica si exercitiu.

    Muzica ne prilejuieste o mai buna intelegere a umanitatii si a vietii moderne, iar volumul de fata ne arata semnificatia ei si pu­terea pe care o rasfrange asupra comportamentului nostru.

     

    Susan Hallam este profesor emerit de Educatie si Psihologie a Muzicii in cadrul Institutului de Educatie de la UCL (Colegiul Universitar din Londra). In 2015 a fost distinsa cu un ordin ono­rific – MBE (The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire); ina­inte de a deveni profesor universitar, Susan Hallam s‑a bucurat de o cariera de succes atat ca muzician profesionist, cat si ca profesor de muzica.

     

    Addiction

     

    Când se transforma un obicei nevinovat in dependenta? De ce doar unii dintre noi devenim dependenti? Cum este posibila recuperarea?

    Există multe povești despre dependență și majoritatea se contrazic între ele.

    • Dependența este o boală sau o slăbiciune morală?

    • Este consecința inevitabilă a consumului de droguri sau este o alegere?

    • Dacă dependența este despre droguri, cum rămâne cu dependența de jocurile de noroc, sex, cumpărături, sport, jocuri video, mâncare, bani, putere?

    • Sunt și acestea adicții în adevăratul sens al cuvântului?

    • Legat de droguri, de ce nu devin dependenți toți cei care utilizează droguri?

    • Au unii oameni personalități pre­dispuse la adicții?

    Indiferent de răspunsuri, nu există nicio în­doială că avem de‑a face cu o problemă gravă.  

    Această carte este o încercare de a răspunde unora dintre întrebările și părerile contradictorii din jurul dependenței și al comportamentelor adictive și include câteva teme ce vor fi explo­rate de‑a lungul capitolelor. Adicția nu este o ratare din punct de vedere moral sau o alegere. Modelul de boală (sau medical), care înțelege adicția ca fiind o boală a creierului influențată de o vul­nerabilitate genetică, este bine cunoscut, dar are câteva minusuri semnificative. Fără îndoială, a considera adicția o boală este prea limitativ și vom explora această viziune mai detaliat în carte.

    Utilizarea drogurilor nu este sinonimă cu dependența de dro­guri, iar această diferență se aplică și altor comportamente adic­tive. Acest tip de comportamente se află la capătul extrem al unui spectru pe care ne aflăm toți; toate urmează aceleași procese pe care le utilizăm ca să identificăm și să urmărim lucruri pe care le considerăm importante pentru supraviețuirea personală. În cazul adicției, aceste obiceiuri devin adânc înrădăcinate și supraapre­ciate, prin urmare încep să elimine alte obiceiuri, care erau părți importante din viața noastră. Afirmație adevărată indiferent de obiectul adicției, fie el droguri, alcool, jocuri video sau muncă. Creierul nostru este „construit” în așa fel încât să creeze obiceiuri, iar obiceiurile cele mai puternice sunt cele care servesc nevoilor emoționale fundamentale: nevoia de apartenență, de siguranță și securitate, de control și autonomie, de eliberare de o durere ex­trem de puternică.

    Adicția îi păcălește pe oameni trimițându‑i după lucruri care, pe termen lung, nu le pot satisface nevoile, asemenea „fantomelor flămânde” din budismul tibetan: ființe cu abdomene uriașe, goale, dar cu guri mici, cât o gămălie de ac, așa că, indiferent ce mănâncă, nu sunt niciodată sătule. Autorul și medicul Gabor Maté a descris această imagine drept „domeniul adicției, în care căutăm constant ceva în afara noastră pentru a răspunde unei dorințe incontrolabile de eliberare sau de împli­nire”.

     

    Toți avem o anumită capacitate de a dezvolta comportamente adictive, iar anumiți factori biologici, psihologici și care aparțin mediului nostru social fac ca acest lucru să fie mai mult sau mai puțin probabil în diferite momente din viața noas­tră. 

     

    Trust

     

    Ce anume ne convinge sa avem incredere in oameni? Cum se dezvolta increderea si cum poate fi aceasta mentinuta? Se confrunta, oare, societatea occidentala cu o criza de incredere?

    Psihologia increderii trateaza chestiuni legate de incredere si experientele din viata de zi cu zi. Cartea identifica factorii care ii determina pe oameni sa fie încrezatori in ceilalti si consecintele acestei decizii asupra problemelor reale de sanatate, politica, terorism, la locul de munca sau in credinta religioasa, din intreaga lume. Cartea exploreaza si impactul lipsei de incredere, precum si cauzele manifestarii acesteia la persoane, grupuri sau organizatii.

    Intr-o lume in care siguranta influenteaza viata noastra cotidiana, Psihologia increderii arata rolul pe care aceasta il are in relatiile noastre si ne ofera indrumari practice in legătura cu increderea pe care o acordam celor din jurul nostru.

    Ken J. Rotenberg este Profesor de Psihologie la Universitatea Keele din Marea Britanie. Este cercetator activ de peste 40 de ani, interesat in special de increderea din timpul copilariei si al adolescentei.

     

    Sex

     

    Ce ne poate invata psihologia despre sex? Cum reacţioneaza oamenii – corpuri si minti diferite – atunci cand vine vorba despre sex? Cum putem sa ne opunem stigmatizarii oamenilor pe considerente ce tin de sexualitatea lor?

     

    Bun venit în lumea psihologiei sexului! Fie că îți place, fie că nu, cu toții trăim într‑o lume în care suntem bombardați constant cu informație, imagini și ideologii despre sex. Psihologia nu presupune doar descoperirea unor lucruri prin intermediul cercetării, ci și evaluarea lucrurilor din perspectivă psihologică și aplicarea principiilor psihologice în viața oamenilor. Așadar, dincolo de faptul că oferă o mulțime de informații despre sex din diferite teorii și studii, această carte pune la dispoziție și mijloacele pentru a gândi critic cu privire la mesajele transmise despre sex și la dezbaterile care se poartă pe tematici legate de acest subiect. De asemenea, conține o mulțime de informații despre felul în care cercetarea și ideile din psihologie pot fi aplicate în viață, în general, dar și despre felul în care le poți aplica tu, în propriile relații și experiențe.

    Cele cinci capitole prezintă o incursiune în ceea ce știm despre psihologia sexului, urmărind diferite aspecte: sexualitate (orientarea, identitatea și atracția sexuală), „actul” sexual sau contactul sexual, practicile și relațiile sexuale și ceea ce a fost numit de curând sexualizarea culturii. Fiecare capitol se bazează pe cărți și articole științifice, pe care le poți consulta apoi pentru a afla mai multe despre temele care te interesează. Veți găsi, de asemenea, și o listă de resurse, la finalul cărții, de unde puteți afla mai multe informații despre tematicile studiate.

    Sperăm că, pe tot parcursul acestei cărți, vei continua să te întrebi „Ce e psihologia?” și „Ce e sexul?” și că răspunsurile se vor schimba pe măsură ce citești. Așa cum se întâmplă cu majoritatea întrebărilor importante, nu există răspunsuri corecte nici pentru acestea; important și util este să continui să ți le pui și să observi cum se schimbă răspunsurile cu cât reflectezi mai mult asupra lor. Iar dacă psihologia sexului se dovedește utilă într‑o oarecare măsură, ea trebuie să răspundă și la întrebările practice, presante, pe care le avem cu privire la sex:

    • Cum putem împiedica stigmatizarea, marginalizarea sau chiar torturarea și uciderea oamenilor din cauza sexualității lor?

    • Cum putem ajuta oamenii care se confruntă cu probleme legate de sexualitate?

    • Cum putem reduce ratele îngrijorător de mari ale sexului abuziv și coercitiv?

    • Cum ar trebui să tratăm agresorii sexuali pentru a‑i împiedica să mai comită abuzuri sexuale și cum putem ajuta victimele acestor abuzuri?

    • Cum arată o viziune sănătoasă asupra sexului și cum am putea încuraja promovarea acesteia în media convențională, socială și sexuală?

    • Cum ar trebui să educăm copiii cu privire la sex?

     

    Bullying

     

    • De ce ajung copiii să se confrunte cu bullying‑ul?

    • Există vreo dife­renţă între bullying‑ul tradiţional și bullying‑ul cibernetic?

    • Cum poate fi prevenit bullying‑ul școlar?

     

    Psihologia bullying‑ului şcolar explorează fenomenul de bullying și fac­torii care conduc la situaţii în care copiii își asumă roluri de agre­sori, victime, apărători, martori – sau chiar o combinaţie a acestora. Cartea de faţă examinează strategii proactive pentru reducerea apari­ţiei bullying‑ului în școală, dar vorbește și despre ce anume poate face școala dacă se confruntă cu astfel de incidente.

    Ţinând cont de faptul că bullying‑ul are consecinţe pe termen lung și, uneori, efecte tragice, este esenţial să știm cum și de ce se întâm­plă, iar Psihologia bullying‑ului şcolar arată că un nivel crescut de informare și înţelegere poate conduce la intervenţii eficiente.

    Ghid pentru vanzari de succes

     

    Foloseste-ti mintea, nu forta, pentru a avea succes in vanzari!

    Mark Edwards deschide cartea cu un motto care transmite un mesaj incurajator tuturor celor care au pierdut un contract de vanzari:

    „Dedic aceasta carte tuturor celor care au cumparat de la mine – si, totodata, celor care nu au facut‑o. Desi pe termen scurt am castigat mai mult de la cei care au cumparat, probabil am invatat mai multe, pe termen lung, de la cei care nu au facut‑o.

    Ironic, nu…?

     

    Orice tip de vanzare – carți, cosmetice, software, flori – presupune cateva „concepte esentiale”, pe care Mark Edwards le prezinta aici prin intermediul unor exemple concrete si al unor ilustratii grafice geniale. Fie ca lucrezi deja in vanzari, fie ca îti doresti sa intri acum in acest domeniu, „Ghid pentru vanzari de succes” este cartea pe care trebui sa o ai la indemană, intrucat îti oferă o serie de elemente-cheie care simplifica natura complexa a procesului de vanzare. Cartea este o combinatie de tehnici, abilitati si indrumari practice prezentate sub forma unor metodologii functionale si explicate prin scenarii si exemple realiste, presarate pe alocuri cu ironii si, uneori, cu remarci taioase.

    Plecand de la „vanzarea perfecta” – un scenariu fictiv oferit ca exemplu la inceputul cartii, in care vanzarea are loc repede si fara impedimente, conditiile sunt prielnice pentru toate partile implicate, nu exista intarzieri si nimeni nu are de pierdut – evident, o situatie ipotetica, Mark trece la prezentarea unor concepte-cheie in vanzari, oferind exemple graitoare din viata reala care sa arate unde greseste „omul de vanzari” cand face contractarea si ce ar trebui sa faca pentru a avea succes.

    Tu ai facut o prospectare a potentialilor clienti? Stii ce fel de clienti are compania ta? Stii cine ia deciziile in compania clientului tau si cine sunt membrii grupului decizional? Ce eveniment presant are? Sau daca are un eveniment presant? Are vreun motiv convingator pentru a cumpara? Oare are nevoie de produsul tau? De ce ar cumpara de la tine? Ce oferi tu si nu ofera altcineva? Ce este important pentru clientul tau: calitatea sau pretul? Sau ambele? De ce a ales concurenta si nu te-a ales pe tine? Unde ai gresit?

    Ei bine, „Ghid pentru vanzari de succes” iti va oferi raspunsul la toate aceste intrebari si la multe altele. O lectură usoara, antrenanta, care te va pune pe ganduri.

    Ghid pentru vanzari de succes

     

    Foloseste-ti mintea, nu forta, pentru a avea succes in vanzari!
    Mark Edwards deschide cartea cu un motto care transmite un mesaj incurajator tuturor celor care au pierdut un contract de vanzari:

    „Dedic aceasta carte tuturor celor care au cumparat de la mine – si, totodata, celor care nu au facut‑o. Desi pe termen scurt am castigat mai mult de la cei care au cumparat, probabil am invatat mai multe, pe termen lung, de la cei care nu au facut‑o.

    Ironic, nu…?

    Orice tip de vanzare – carți, cosmetice, software, flori – presupune cateva „concepte esentiale”, pe care Mark Edwards le prezinta aici prin intermediul unor exemple concrete si al unor ilustratii grafice geniale. Fie ca lucrezi deja in vanzari, fie ca îti doresti sa intri acum in acest domeniu, „Ghid pentru vanzari de succes” este cartea pe care trebui sa o ai la indemană, intrucat îti oferă o serie de elemente-cheie care simplifica natura complexa a procesului de vanzare. Cartea este o combinatie de tehnici, abilitati si indrumari practice prezentate sub forma unor metodologii functionale si explicate prin scenarii si exemple realiste, presarate pe alocuri cu ironii si, uneori, cu remarci taioase.

    Plecand de la „vanzarea perfecta” – un scenariu fictiv oferit ca exemplu la inceputul cartii, in care vanzarea are loc repede si fara impedimente, conditiile sunt prielnice pentru toate partile implicate, nu exista intarzieri si nimeni nu are de pierdut – evident, o situatie ipotetica, Mark trece la prezentarea unor concepte-cheie in vanzari, oferind exemple graitoare din viata reala care sa arate unde greseste „omul de vanzari” cand face contractarea si ce ar trebui sa faca pentru a avea succes.

    Tu ai facut o prospectare a potentialilor clienti? Stii ce fel de clienti are compania ta? Stii cine ia deciziile in compania clientului tau si cine sunt membrii grupului decizional? Ce eveniment presant are? Sau daca are un eveniment presant? Are vreun motiv convingator pentru a cumpara? Oare are nevoie de produsul tau? De ce ar cumpara de la tine? Ce oferi tu si nu ofera altcineva? Ce este important pentru clientul tau: calitatea sau pretul? Sau ambele? De ce a ales concurenta si nu te-a ales pe tine? Unde ai gresit?

    Ei bine, „Ghid pentru vanzari de succes” iti va oferi raspunsul la toate aceste intrebari si la multe altele. O lectură usoara, antrenanta, care te va pune pe ganduri.

    This book argues for renewed understandings of academic activism, understandings that conceive of the ideas, arguments and scholarship of the academe as embedded within the practices of what the academy does. It examines why and how a renewed notion of academic activism informs a philosophy of higher education specifically in relation to teaching and learning. The book focuses on the theories and practices of teaching and learning, in particular how such pedagogical actions are guided by social, political and cultural influences outside of the university as a higher education institution. The authors advocate for a living philosophy of higher education that is commensurate with real actions and imaginary fictions of what constitutes higher education and what remains in becoming for the discourse. With a focus on South African social justice education, the book imagines pathways for academic activism to manifest in revolutionised pedagogical actions or actions that bring into contestation what already exists with the possibility for the cultivation of renewal.

    Although both school–university transitions and cross-border transitions have been widely explored, comparatively little research has been conducted on those students who undergo both transitions at the same time. This book reports on a longitudinal qualitative study investigating the major issues faced by nine Mainland Chinese students during their first year at a Hong Kong university from the perspective of learner autonomy. It argues that the school–university transition is especially challenging for students going through a cross-border transition at the same time, which usually involves a linguistic and cultural adjustment, and challenges their autonomy in three domains: managing their personal lives; academic learning; and English learning.

    Adopting the perspective of autonomy enables us to better understand student transitions so that more appropriate support can be provided for this group. Given its scope, the book offers a valuable asset for educators at both the secondary and post-secondary levels, and underscores the need to help students bridge the gap between school and university, and thus advance along the continuum of autonomy more smoothly. It also has practical implications for students who are studying or intend to study abroad.

    This book explores the impacts of transnational education (TNE) from the perspectives of institutions and countries that primarily act as hosts. The authors describe and analyse TNE across a wide geographical area comprised of both established and emerging TNE host countries, from Europe to Southeast Asia to less-discussed countries such as Nepal and Uzbekistan. Complementing the 2018 volume Exporting Transnational Education: Institutional Practice, Policy and National Goals, the book is organised into three principal themes: the impacts of TNE on capacity building, the sustainability of such developments, and the impacts on the student experience in host countries. As TNE is a dynamic and fast-moving area of international higher education, this book will appeal to scholars and administrators of international and transnational education.

    This book proposes a philosophical exploration of the educational role that media plays in university study practices, with a focus on the practices of lecturing and academic writing. Are the media employed in university study practices mere accessories, or rather constitutive of these practices? While this seems to be a purely theoretical question, its practical implications are wide and concern whether such a thing as a ‘digital university’ is possible. The 'digital university' has been, for a long time, a theoretical construct. However, in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic, moving the university into the digital realm has become a necessity. The difficulties in transitioning to an online university during the 2020 pandemic showed the increased urgency of the questions explored in this book.

     

    The book describes lecturing and academic writing through the lens of a phenomenology of gestures and arrives at a description of the experience of university thinking as expanding the subject’s range of experiences about the world and about one’s modes of thinking about the world. The media configuration characteristic for university study practices is a movement of rendering inoperative one medium through another medium so that thinking can emerge, a movement called ‘mediatic displacement’. The question of the digital university becomes then a question whether mediatic displacement is possible on a digital screen. Although this is conceivable, digital technologies are still relatively new, and we are not used to playing with them in a profanatory way as the book discusses through the example of videoconferencing and MOOCs. The promise of the digital university seems to remain utopian until we figure out how to enact the techniques of mediatic displacement currently flourishing at the physical university.

     

    Both emerging and established researchers will benefit from this book since it offers an alternative way of discussing the possibility of a digital transformation of the university, starting from a phenomenology of gestures and an understanding of thinking as a collective experience of potentiality and profanation at the same time. By combining two perspectives, media-theoretical and educational-philosophical, this book show a new way of understanding what makes a university and, thus, contributes to the emerging debate on the digital university.

    This book explores the role universities have to play in fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At the heart of “sustainable development” is the legacy of unsustainable development with its roots in modernity and colonialism. Critical engagement with the SDGs involves recognising these roots are shared by universities and the reciprocal need for maintenance, repair and regeneration. Universities are not just enablers of change, but also important targets of change. By focusing on the role of education about, for and through the SDGs, the authors seek to advance critical engagement with higher education that is both progressive and meaningful. We are all responsible for bearing witness to our age. This book will appeal to all those who hope that more sustainable future worlds are still possible.
