Our current healthcare system is sick, and the cure is simple: We need to bring compassion back to healthcare. In The Cutting Edge of Compassion, Dr. Barry Rose reflects on how physicians and patients can create the best healing outcomes by appreciating personality differences, addressing fear, being open to Eastern and Western medical philosophies, and recognizing insurance, legal, and pharmaceutical obstacles to optimal care. Rose presents a compassionate vision for healthcare where health professionals and patients work together to heal.
Dr. Barry Rose is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon, the chief of orthopedic surgery, and surgical division head for the Alameda division of the Palo Alto Foundation Medical Group - one of the largest multispecialty groups in California.

Derek Cressman argues political advertising isn't free speech: it's paid speech and so shouldn't be subject to the same protections. He describes what a Constitutional amendment to limit money in politics should say.
“When money talks, democracy walks. Read this book to learn how We the People can take back our elections from the billionaires and overturn a Supreme Court ruling that is a gross misreading of our Constitution.” -- Robert B. Reich, Chancellor's Professor, Cal Berkeley, and former US Secretary of Labor

Nonstop Metropolis, the culminating volume in a trilogy of atlases, conveys innumerable unbound experiences of New York City through twenty-six imaginative maps and informative essays. Bringing together the insights of dozens of experts—from linguists to music historians, ethnographers, urbanists, and environmental journalists—amplified by cartographers, artists, and photographers, it explores all five boroughs of New York City and parts of nearby New Jersey. We are invited to travel through Manhattan’s playgrounds, from polyglot Queens to many-faceted Brooklyn, and from the resilient Bronx to the mystical kung fu hip-hop mecca of Staten Island. The contributors to this exquisitely designed and gorgeously illustrated volume celebrate New York City’s unique vitality, its incubation of the avant-garde, and its literary history, but they also critique its racial and economic inequality, environmental impact, and erasure of its past. Nonstop Metropolis allows us to excavate New York’s buried layers, to scrutinize its political heft, and to discover the unexpected in one of the most iconic cities in the world. It is both a challenge and homage to how New Yorkers think of their city, and how the world sees this capitol of capitalism , culture, immigration, and more.
