    This book aims to address a number of controversies concerning the use of testosterone treatment. It explains topics that clinicians regularly encounter such as whether to use free or total testosterone in the evaluation of the patient with testosterone deficiency; what factors actually impact testosterone levels, polycythemia, gynecomastia, bone density, and hyperprolactinemia in the testosterone deficient patient; critical analysis of the numerous questionnaires that are available to clinicians; and the impact of testosterone therapy on male fertility, cardiovascular disease, and prostate events including prostate cancer. Guiding the reader in both evaluation and management, the book also illuminates novel concepts in the T space such as testosterone use in the transgender population, T therapy as an endothelial modulator, bipolar testosterone therapy in the patient with advanced prostate cancer, and testosterone therapy as a performance enhancer.

    Controversies in Testosterone Deficiency is intended for any clinician involved in the care of patients with testosterone deficiency, exploring hot topics and correcting existent misinformation in the routine care of patients.

    Book Description:


    As a junior doctor starting a surgery or urology rotation, you are expected to take charge of referrals from - and give specialist advice to - A&E, GPs and other specialties. Often you will have had very limited surgical experience and only an off-site registrar for support. This pocket-sized book provides a quick, reliable reference guide for the initial management of the common surgical referrals, with guidance as to what complaints require admission and which can be sent home for outpatient or GP follow-up. It will  help relieve the stressful experience of being on-call, alleviating some of the anxiety and making shifts more bearable.

    The authoritative clinical handbook promoting excellence and best practice

    Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation in Practice is a comprehensive, practitioner-focused clinical handbook which provides internationally applicable evidence-based standards of good practice. Edited and written by a multidisciplinary team of experts from the British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (BACPR), this book is invaluable for practitioners helping people with heart disease return to health. The text provides an overview of research findings, examines the core components of cardiac rehabilitation, and discusses how to support healthier lifestyles and reduce the risks of recurrence.

    Now in its second edition, this textbook has been fully revised to incorporate recent clinical evidence and align with current national and international guidelines. Increased emphasis is placed on an integrated approach to cardiac rehabilitation programmes, whilst six specified standards and six core components are presented to promote sustainable health outcomes.

    ·         Describes how cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation programmes can be delivered to meet standards of good practice

    ·         Covers a broad range of topics including: promoting health behaviour change to improve lifestyle risk factors, supporting psycho-social health, managing medical risk factors, and how to develop long-term health strategies

    ·         Emphasises the importance of early programme commencement with assessment and reassessment of patient goals and outcomes, and gives examples of strategies to achieve these

    ·         Discusses the role of programme audit and certification of meeting minimum standards of practice

    ·         Looks to the future and how delivery of cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation programmes internationally will need to meet common challenges

    Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation in Practice is an indispensable resource for all health professionals involved in cardiac rehabilitation and cardiovascular disease prevention.

    The accessibility requirement of educational policies is a reinvention of schools beyond the education of students with disabilities.

    Accessibility or Reinventing Education studies the changes that have redefined the roles and missions of schools, by asking them to consider the obstacles to learning imposed on students – regardless of their particular characteristics – in order to make themselves accessible to the greatest number.

    This book examines the ways in which school stakeholders are addressing the need for accessibility to bring its principles to life on a daily basis. Particular attention is given to the strategies developed by teachers for creating accessible school environments, the conditions for mobilizing digital technologies, and the redefinition of relationships between teachers and their specialist counterparts. Finally, the new figures of "ineducablility", established because of the accessibility imperative, are considered, and a grammar of accessibility is proposed, setting the stage for accessibility in school environments and the implementation of inclusive policies.

    Working away from trends in government policy, this book takes a future-oriented re-imagining of schools with a focus on four innate human capacities: collaboration, critical reflection, communication and creativity. Miranda Jefferson and Michael Anderson draw together examples of practice from around the world, including Australia, France, New Zealand and Spain, to provide a reimagining of education. They show how our schools can be sustainably transformed to be places of support, challenge and joy in learning, responding to student’s needs and the needs in our workplaces and wider society. Readers are empowered to use knowledge and experience to build the reality they would like to see in their school, building engaged, innovative and active learning, pedagogy curriculum and leadership. Key ideas are summarised at the end of each chapter along with an extensive referencing and bibliography, and a supporting glossary.

    The post-secondary educational system has undergone dramatic changes and experienced immense stress in the past two decades. Once regarded as the logical next step toward career opportunities and financial security, higher education is a subject of growing uncertainty for millions of people across the United States. It is more common than ever to question the return on investment, skyrocketing cost, and student debt burden of going to college. Prospective students, and many employers, increasingly view attending institutions of higher learning as inadequate preparation for entering the 21st century workforce. High-profile scandals—financial impropriety, sexual abuse, restrictions of free speech, among others—have further eroded public trust. In response to these and other challenges, leading voices are demanding strengthened accountability and measurable change.


    Higher Education's Road to Relevance illustrates why change is needed in post-secondary education and offers practical solutions to pressing concerns. The authors, internationally recognized experts in college-level teaching and learning innovation, draw heavily from contemporary research to provide an integrative approach for post-secondary faculty, staff, and administrators of all levels. This timely book helps readers identify the need for leadership in developing new networks and ecosystems of learning and workforce development. This valuable book will help readers:

    ·         Understand the forces driving change in higher education

    ·         Develop multiple pathways to create and credential self-directed learners

    ·         Promote access to flexible, cost-effective, and relevant learning

    ·         Adapt structures and pedagogies to address issues and overcome challenges

    ·         Use an inclusive approach that extends to employers, K-12 educators, post-secondary educators, and policy-makers, among others

    Higher Education's Road to Relevance is a much-needed resource for college and university administrators, academic researchers, instructors and other faculty, and staff who support and interact with students.

    For most academic libraries, archives and museums, digital content management is increasingly occurring on a holistic enterprise level. As most institutions contemplate an enterprise digital content strategy for a growing number of digitized surrogates and born-digital assets, libraries, archives, and museums understand that these expanding needs can only be met by more flexible approaches offered by a multicomponent digital asset management ecosystem (DAME).

    Increasingly, librarians, archivists, and curators are managing an integrated digital ecosystem by coordinating and complementing a number of existing and emerging initiatives. This guide provides a high-level overview and offers a conceptual framework for understanding a digital asset management ecosystem with discussions on digital collection typologies and assessment, planning and prioritization, the importance of a community of practice through associated workflows, and an understanding of the critical role that foresight planning plays in balancing an evolving infrastructure and expanding digital content with creative cost modeling and sustainability strategies.

    Borrowing from the principles of data curation, integrative collection building requires an understanding of the library’s “digital ecosystem” of licensed content, digitized material, and born-digital content in order to ensure strategic growth of institutional collections in the context of long-term holistic collection management plans.

    Key elements discussed in this book include:

    ·         the importance of digital collection assessment, analysis, and prioritization,

    ·         the realignment of accession and appraisal methodologies for efficient digital content acquisition,

    ·         the need to think holistically relating to tool selection and infrastructure development to ensure interoperability, scalability, and sustainability of a universe of digital assets,

    ·         the creation of cross-functional workflows in accordance with policies and plans,

    ·         the importance of advocating for growing resources needed for managing, descriptive, administrative, technical, rights and preservation metadata across the institution, and

    ·         the significance of distributed digital preservation models with a growing array of associated options for cloud storage.

This book explores older adults' values and needs and describes the many ways libraries can serve them in effective ways. Senior Services Today: A Practical Guide for Librarians is a comprehensive guide to library services for this important community.

    Chapters cover these critical areas:

     ·Engaging Older Adults in Library Programs and Services

     ·Understanding Demographic Differences

    ·Marketing to Older Adults: Strategies

    ·Programming Ideas for Older Adults in the Modern Age

    ·Enhancing Technology Accessibility for Older Adults

     ·Community Outreach: Serving Outside the Library

    ·Specialty Collections Items

     ·Continuing the Library's Relationship with an Aging Population

    First published in 2007, The Architecture of Yemen was the first book to offer an in-depth investigation into the characteristic architecture of country and the the result of nearly two decades of research. This new, revised edition includes drawings, documentation and information on the building and reconstruction projects carried out from 2008 to 2014 at locations in Hadrumat and Dawan. Moving beyond the major cities, Salma Samar Damluji explores the architecture of regions that could be said to be the last strongholds of traditional Arab architecture.

    The Architecture of Yemen and its Reconstruction features a wealth of insights from both the master builders and home owners and contains photographs and surveyed drawings of many locations that are now extremely difficult to visit. It also examines in detail building techniques and methods little known outside of Yemen and includes well-known UNESCO World Heritage Sites as well as remarkable buildings from less-visited areas.

    Praise for The Architecture of Yemen:
    "Historians, planners and architects will find much useful detail in The Architecture of Yemen and the general reader much charm in the beguiling photos. In addition, those concerned by the rash of more recent and hasty development will find some hope for the inspiration of a new generation of master builders in Yemen and the Gulf." - Current World Archaeology

    This book develops a model to evaluate and assess life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions based on typical Australian commercial building design options. It also draws comparisons between some of the many green building rating tools that have been developed worldwide to support sustainable development. These include: Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) by the Building Research Establishment, Comprehensive Assessment System for Building Environmental Efficiency (CASBEE) by the Japanese Sustainable Building Consortium, and Green Star Environmental Rating System by the Green Building Council of Australia.

    Life-cycle assessment (LCA), life-cycle energy consumption, and life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions form the three pillars of life-cycle studies, which have been used to evaluate environmental impacts of building construction. Assessment of the life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions of buildings is one of the significant obstacles in evaluating green building performance. This book explains the methodology for achieving points for the categories associated with reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the Australian Green Star rating system. The model for the assessment uses GaBi 8.7 platform along with Visual Basic in Microsoft Excel and shows the relationship between the building’s energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions released during the lifetime of the building. The data gathered in the book also illustrates that the green building design and specifications are becoming more popular and are being increasingly utilized in Australia. This book is important reading for anyone interested in sustainable construction, green design and buildings and LCA tools.

    Ron Dimon’s thought-leading second edition of the book originally entitled Enterprise Performance Management Done Right, published in 2012, is a practical roadmap for using Connected Planning to develop an agile organization and to navigate the complex Enterprise Performance Management landscape.

    According to esteemed author, researcher, and Management professor Dr. Christopher Neck, “In the same way that one needs to be self-leading to finish a grueling marathon, an organization must be self-leading in order to execute on its plans in an efficient and effective manner. What drives self-leadership at all levels in an organization? The people within the organization of course—and those people must be involved in the planning occurring in an organization. Without a plan, an organization has no direction.”

    Since 2012, much has changed in the world of connecting strategy with improved performance: new, cloud-based, in-memory technologies have been adopted by the largest organizations in the world. This book is for CFOs, CIOs, their direct reports, and any organizational visionary or aspiring leader who wants to ‘‘bring it all together’’ and create an actionable vision and plan for improving readiness, resilience, and performance.

    Step into the world of Frida Kahlo: behind the portraits and the surrealist art discover the fascinating woman who has transfixed the world.

    Fridamania has made Frida Kahlo's image ubiquitous: she has been reborn as a Halloween costume, Barbie doll, children's book character, textile print, phone cover and the inspiration for everything from cocktails to fashion shoots. But it is more difficult to get a clear vision of this bold and brilliant, foul-mouthed, heavy-drinking, hard-smoking, husband-stealing, occasionally bisexual, often bed-bound, wheelchair-using, needy, forthright and passionate woman. Hettie Judah sets out to correct that with this superb biography of one of the most charismatic artists of the last hundred years.

    Follow Frida's life through tumultuous love and life-altering accidents, towards recognition in the art world from the likes of André Breton and Marcel Duchamp, to becoming the first Mexican artist held at the Louvre. Judah delves into Kahlo's experiences and how these came together to inspire the art that has been described as an uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form. From an early battle with Polio, to a debilitating bus accident at 18, through love and heart ache, the life of Frida Kahlo was one of pain but a pain that bore great beauty.

    Hettie Judah is a contributing writer for publications including the GuardianVogueThe New York TimesFrieze and Art Quarterly.

    Lives of the Artists is a new series by Laurence King. Concise, highly readable biographies of some of the world's greatest artists written by authoritative and respected names from the world of art. Learn about the artist behind the masterpieces.
