This is a handbook for writers who have completed, or are trying to complete, perhaps their first manuscript and aren't sure what steps to take next to get it published. It contains help with: frustration; writer's block; mushy middles; bad endings; descriptions; dialogue; setting up a writing group; 'cleaning up' the manuscript; agents-how to get one and what they do; editors-do you need one and what do they do; large publishing companies; small presses; independent publishing; query letters; the book proposal. Plus a number of web sites that could prove useful at each step of the process. There's a lot of white space inside the handbook so the writer can make notations to self, corrections, practice, reminders, and questions to examine further. This handbook is not meant to be a complete dictionary of the act of getting published. It is meant to be a quick and easy help to get the writer moving towards publication.

An examination of the current employer-based administration of healthcare benefits in the United States which is often held up as a model of excellence and efficiency that government cannot match. It shows how even the vaunted employer-based system is riddled with flaws as it follows a person through their birth, childhood, adulthood, retirement, and death. Based on the author's own experience with benefits administration and analyzing the regrettable experiences he encountered in his work with healthcare consumers, Your Healthcare Sucks is an accurate indictment of the parlous state of the health benefits of even the best-off employees. It uses incidents from his own life to shed a light on the existence of the folks who provide your benefits administration. Whether you are concerned for your own health, the benefits of loved ones, or seeking to change the system of healthcare administration, this book is going to provide the information to help you secure lasting healthcare now and into the future.

Object Lessons is a series of short, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things. A 3-year-old asks her physician father about his job, and his inability to provide a succinct and accurate answer inspires a critical look at the profession of modern medicine. In sorting through how patients, insurance companies, advertising agencies, filmmakers, and comedians misconstrue a doctor's role, Andrew Bomback, M.D., realizes that even doctors struggle to define their profession. As the author attempts to unravel how much of doctoring is role-playing, artifice, and bluffing, he examines the career of his father, a legendary pediatrician on the verge of retirement, and the health of his infant son, who is suffering from a vague assortment of gastrointestinal symptoms. At turns serious, comedic, analytical, and confessional, Doctor offers an unflinching look at what it means to be a physician today. Object Lessons is published in partnership with an essay series in The Atlantic.

Now in paperback: a #1 New York Times–bestselling author’s gripping chronicle of “two doctors . . . bringing light to those in darkness” (Time) The publisher will donate a portion of its proceeds on the sale of this book to the Himalayan Cataract Project. Second Suns is the unforgettable true story of two very different doctors with a common mission: to rid the world of preventable blindness. Dr. Geoffrey Tabin was the high-achieving “bad boy” of his class at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Sanduk Ruit grew up in a remote village in the Himalayas, where cataract blindness—easily curable in modern hospitals—amounts to an epidemic. Together, they pioneered a new surgical method, by which they have restored sight to over 100,000 people—all for about $20 per operation. Master storyteller David Oliver Relin brings the doctors’ work to vivid life through poignant portraits of their patients, from old men who can once again walk treacherous mountain trails, to children who can finally see their mothers’ faces. The Himalayan Cataract Project is changing the world—one pair of eyes at a time.
