An unforgettable, illuminating story of how men live and how they survive, from the acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of Cutting for Stone When Abraham Verghese, a physician whose marriage is unraveling, relocates to El Paso, Texas, he hopes to make a fresh start as a staff member at the county hospital. There he meets David Smith, a medical student recovering from drug addiction, and the two men begin a tennis ritual that allows them to shed their inhibitions and find security in the sport they love and with each other. This friendship between doctor and intern grows increasingly rich and complex, more intimate than two men usually allow. Just when it seems nothing can go wrong, the dark beast from David’s past emerges once again—and almost everything Verghese has come to trust and believe in is threatened as David spirals out of control.

Professional tennis is a neatly synchronized effort by well-trained players who rarely deviate from the prescribed notions of how to play the game. Highly skilled and conditioned athletes travel the world with a personal entourage, and they lead lives which are relatively well scripted. Amateur players come to the party with a towel, a bottle of water and, maybe, a banana. Each amateur tennis players’ attire, equipment, and tennis swing is as unique as his or her hopes and dreams for the life they want to lead. This diversity leads to peculiar happenings on and off the courts. Whether it relates to controlling your anger, hydrating properly, determining who to partner with to ensure victory, or captaining a team, THE TENNIS COMMANDMENTS will explain how not to take tennis or life too seriously and help people win at both tennis and life.

The rash of corporate scandals in recent years underscores a fact too often ignored in the business world: flouting the law holds serious consequences. Indeed, all it takes is one rogue trader, one greedy executive, or one misinformed manager to place an entire organization at risk. But respected legal expert Constance E. Bagley argues that staying out of trouble is only part of the picture when it comes to legality in business. In Winning Legally, Bagley shows how managers can proactively harness the power of the law to maximize corporate value, marshal human and financial resources, and manage risk. Through scores of classic and contemporary examples across the business landscape, this no-nonsense guide completely re-frames the relationship of law to business. Bagley explains how managers can use the law as a strategic tool to help select and work effectively with legal advisers, spot legal issues before they become problems, weigh the legal risks of specific opportunities, and more. Ultimately, the responsibility for making tough business decisions lies with managers--not with lawyers. This timely book shows how managers can combine business audacity and vision with integrity and respect for the law to build truly great and enduring firms. Constance E. Bagley is an associate professor of business administration at Harvard Business School. She was formerly a partner of Bingham McCutchen LLP and co-author of The Entrepreneur's Guide to Business Law.

The unexpected loss of a client can be a lonely and isolating experience for therapists. While family and friends can ritually mourn the deceased, the nature of the therapeutic relationship prohibits therapists from engaging in such activities. Practitioners can only share memories of a client in circumscribed ways, while respecting the patient's confidentiality. Therefore, they may find it difficult to discuss the things that made the therapeutic relationship meaningful. Similarly, when a therapist loses someone in their private lives, they are expected to isolate themselves from grief, since allowing one's personal life to enter the working relationship can interfere with a client's self-discovery and healing. For therapists caught between their grief and the empathy they provide for their clients, this collection explores the complexity of bereavement within the practice setting. It also examines the professional and personal ramifications of death and loss for the practicing clinician. Featuring original essays from longstanding practitioners, the collection demonstrates the universal experience of bereavement while outlining a theoretical framework for the position of the bereft therapist. Essays cover the unexpected death of clients and patient suicide, personal loss in a therapist's life, the grief of clients who lose a therapist, disastrous loss within a community, and the grief resulting from professional losses and disruptions. The first of its kind, this volume gives voice to long-suppressed thoughts and emotions, enabling psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, and other mental health specialists to achieve the connection and healing they bring to their own work.

We often judge remarkable achievements by the rarity in which they are performed. It is no exaggeration to place that judgment on these provocative poems by Helen Kanevsky. These writings are something special and rare, from a poet who only began to learn English as an older adultbringing into her new-lettered world the life experience of a native to Russian Jewish culture, with its deep literary tradition intertwined with the complex history of a country that not so long ago stood at the crossroads of world events and the forefront of social revolution. Reading these poems by Helen Kanevsky makes me think of the power of words the power to evoke, the power to lead the mind through new avenues of hitherto unknown realities. Helen is very conscious of this power and rejoices in their potential when she proclaims her adamant faith in the superpower of words. Helen has emerged as a new person, in a new world. And it occurs to me that the words have formed the woman as much as the woman has formed the words. There is in this a gift to the reader: As a foreigner brought on to the shores of English expression, she brings a unique framework. As she directs her verbal lens we see the world in a different way. Bruce Neuburger, author of Lettue Wars
