The Geography of Thought: How Asians and Westerners Think Differently...and Why
Richard E. Nisbett
0743255356
April 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
This book may mark the beginning of a new front in the science wars. Nisbett, an eminent psychologist and co-author of a seminal Psychological Review paper on how people talk about their decision making, reports on some of his latest work in cultural psychology. He contends that "[h]uman cognition is not everywhere the same"-that those brought up in Western and East Asian cultures think differently from one another in scientifically measurable ways. Such a contention pits his work squarely against evolutionary psychology (as articulated by Steven Pinker and others) and cognitive science, which assume all appreciable human characteristics are "hard wired." Initial chapters lay out the traditional differences between Aristotle and Confucius, and the social practices that produced (and have grown out of) these...

Review
'... a valuable reference tool.' Robert Hiorns, Mathematics Today

Review
"The case of infectious diseases is particularly interesting in that the spread of a disease within a population is determined in part by the structure of that population while infections do themselves determine aspects of population dynamics." B.S. Drasar, Epidemiol.Infect.

"...the topics presented are cutting edge, and need to be at the disposal of epidemiologists....this book should encourage public health researchers, epidemiologists and biostatisticians to consider broad applications and the use of different methods even more." Rob Lyerla, Journal of the American Statistical Association

Book Description
“A clever fighter is one who not only wins, but excels in winning with ease.” So wrote Sun Tzu 2,500 years ago, and kings, soldiers, and statesmen have been turning to the Chinese master for his astute observations ever since. Sun Tzu’s incisive blueprint for battlefield strategy is as relevant to today’s combatants in business, politics, and everyday life as it once was to the warlords of ancient China. The Art of War is one of the most useful books ever written on leading with wisdom, an essential tool for modern corporate warriors battling to gain the advantage in the boardroom and for anyone struggling to gain the upper hand in confrontations and competitions.
Here Lionel Giles’s famed 1910 translation, laced with commentary from illustrious Chinese experts, is...

Epidemic of Care
George C. Halvorson

Jan 2003
Hardcover

From the New England Journal of Medicine, August 28, 2003
Health care costs are out of control, the quality of health care is frightfully low, and far too many people are uninsured. The solution, according to George Halvorson and George Isham, is managed care. This is not your father's managed care. It is the new managed care, in which health plans focus more on improving the quality of care and less on rationing care. Halvorson and Isham worked together doing just that at HealthPartners, a Minnesota-based health plan. Halvorson now heads Kaiser Permanente. After exploring the behaviors of providers, consumers, and health plans that led to the current state of affairs, the authors lay out a seven-point national plan for increasing the value of health care. Not surprisingly, health plans have a large role. Improving the quality of care...

Review
"Taking from the ancient books of the Kama Sutra and the Tao, Iam's self-help guide to lovemaking will make you and your mate the perfect yin and yang combo." -- Adriana Lopez, Latina Magazine
"Offering a philosophical approach to sexual pleasure, the author draws upon Eastern teachings but uses a writing style and terminology more accessible to a Western audience. More than a simple sex manual, this slim volume condenses vast amounts of information into short, practical techniques for integrating mental and physical energies." -- Library Journal
"Sex and the Perfect Lover is not just a list of interesting sex positions. Rituals, massages, aphrodisiacs, and all sorts of strategies to take pleasure to unknown heights are included in this book." -- Alfredo Arango, el Nuevo Herald

Healing with Whole Foods: Asian Traditions and Modern Nutrution
Paul Pitchford
1556434308
September 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Used as a reference by students of acupuncture, this is a hefty, truly comprehensive guide to the theory and healing power of Chinese medicine. It's also a primer on nutrition--including facts about green foods, such as spirulina and blue-green algae, and the "regeneration diets" used by cancer patients and arthritics--along with an inspiring cookbook with more than 300 mostly vegetarian, nutrient-packed recipes.

The information on Chinese medicine is useful for helping to diagnose health imbalances, especially nascent illnesses. It's smartly paired with the whole-foods program because the Chinese have attributed various health-balancing properties to foods, so you can tailor your diet to help alleviate symptoms of illness. For example, Chinese medicine dictates that someone with low energy and a pale complexion (a yin...

Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling: Career Strategies for Asians
Jane Hyun
0060731192
May 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
A different take on people issues that corporations face is proffered by Hyun, a former human resources executive who knows the subject well. After all, she points out, Asian Americans are growing 41 percent faster than any other demographic group yet hold only 12.5 percent of U.S. management positions. What underlies those startling statistics is one word: culture. Eastern values are almost diametrically opposed to Western. Asians are risk averse, for instance, preferring to keep their heads down rather than speak up or confront workplace issues. That emphasis on collective decision making and conflict avoidance hinders career advancement, at best, and, at worst, can derail future vocational choices. Hyun's help is multiple, from individual profiles and skill-defining exercises to interviewing and mentoring tips, all...

Top of the Class: How Asian Parents Raise High Achievers--and How You Can Too
Soo Kim Abboud
0425205614
November 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Stressing involvement, encouragement, discipline and more involvement, the authors reveal the 17 "secrets" Asian families use to create straight-A-earning, Ivy League-bound children, though some readers may balk at the generalities the book treats as facts. (The opening sentence reads: "Have you ever sat next to an Asian student in class and wondered how she managed to consistently get straight A's while you struggled to maintain a B-minus average?") That said, much of the advice isn't, contrary to the book's title and tone, culture-specific and is just as likely to be overheard at parent-teacher conferences in Dubuque as read about in this book: be enthusiastic when your child asks for help, set goals and reward positive performance. The book employs a we vs. you tact, and many readers will find the implied...


Asian (Williams-Sonoma Collection)
Farina Wong Kingsley
0743253337
May 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
This volume, the latest in Williams-Sonoma’s crowd-pleasing line of cookbooks, attempts to represent the wildly diverse world of Asian food with a mere forty recipes. Naturally, this is not the book to buy for an in-depth look at the wonders of Sichuan cooking or the subtle depths of Bangladeshi cuisine, but nevertheless it’s a well-rounded compilation, offering a nicely edited selection of dishes from all over East and South-East Asia. Thai Beef Salad with Mango is an addictive combination of sweet, spicy, and chewy, a terrific summertime party dish. Vegetable and Shrimp Tempura makes that Japanese restaurant favorite accessible to even the most inexperienced home cook. And Tapioca with Coconut Cream is a surprisingly rich, vibrant dessert, simultaneously exotic and comforting. Unfortunately, some of...
