'I didn't have a burning desire to make a product for mums. I didn't have a burning desire to make a product at all. My moti-vation was to be the master of my own destiny, to work for my-self rather than 'the man.' If someone told me before I started my business that my cofounder would bail, that I'd be on the brink of bankruptcy and that I'd get into a jumbled mess with my investors-all while raising four daughters-would I still have done it? Hell yeah. But that's because I'm a loud and feisty Aussie chick. If you're reading this, you probably have some guts too. Believe me, I was never supposed to be an entrepreneur. I was just another thirty-something full-time corporate cog, wife and mother who didn't know a damn thing about business. But I knew in my bones that aden + anais, a boutique swaddle company my friend and I thought up on the floor of my baby's nursery, would be successful. And, would you look at that, I was right. I'm here to tell you, that you do have what it takes to start a business, change careers, be successful-and maybe even tell your micromanaging boss to go shove it. I succeeded, despite all the odds and curveballs thrown my way, and you can too. You don't need an MBA, you just need an idea you believe in, the ability to work your arse off and a desire to learn more. So get ready to check your doubts at the door and jump in.

Major life transitions such as leaving the protected environment of school or starting a new career can be daunting. It is scary to face a wall of choices, knowing that no one is going to tell us if we make the right decision. There is no clearly delineated path or recipe for success. Even figuring out how and where to start can be a challenge. As head of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program, Tina Seelig's job is to guide her students as they make the difficult transition from the academic environment to the professional world-providing tangible skills and insights that will last a lifetime. Seelig is a wildly popular and award-winning teacher and in What I Wish I Knew When I Was 20 she shares with us what she offers her students -provocative stories, inspiring advice, and a big dose of humility and humor. These pages are filled with captivating examples, from the classroom to the boardroom, of individuals defying expectations, challenging assumptions, and achieving unprecedented success. Seelig throws out the old rules and provides a new model for reaching our potential. We discover how to have a healthy disregard for the impossible; how to recover from failure; and how most problems are remarkable opportunities in disguise. What I Wish I Knew When I Was Twenty is a much-needed book for everyone looking to make their mark in the world.

More than a century of research has sought to identify the causes of stuttering, describe its nature, and enhance its clinical treatment. By contrast, studies directly focused upon public and professional attitudes toward stuttering began in the 1970s. Recent work has taken this research to new levels, including the development of standard attitude measures; ad-dressing the widely reported phenomena of teasing, bullying, and discrimination against people who stutter; and attempting to change public opinion toward stuttering to more accepting and sensitive levels. Stuttering Meets Stereotype, Stigma, and Discrimination: An Overview of Attitude Research is the only reference work to date devoted entirely to the topic of stuttering attitudes. It features comprehensive review chapters by St. Louis, Boyle and Blood, Gabel, Langevin, and Abdalla; an annotated bibliography by Hughes; and experimental studies by other seasoned and new researchers. The book leads the reader through a maze of research efforts, emerging with a clear understanding of the important issues involved and ideas of where to go next. Importantly, the evidence base for stuttering attitude research extends beyond research in this fluency disorder to such areas as mental illness, obesity, and race. Thus, although of interest primarily to those who work, interact, or oth-erwise deal with stuttering, the book has potential for increasing under-standing, ameliorating negative attitudes, and informing research on any of a host of other stigmatized conditions.

A fascinating guide to a career in neurosurgery written by award-winning journalist John Colapinto and based on the real-life experiences of an expert in the field-essential reading for someone considering a path to this most challenging profession. Choosing what to do with your life begins with imagining yourself in a career, actually meeting the emotional, physical, and intellectual demands of the job. Often regarded as one of the most technically and emotionally demanding of surgical disciplines, becoming a neurosurgeon requires years of study. This practical guide offers a unique opportunity to see what daily life for a neurosurgeon is like, from someone who has mastered the profession and can explain what the risks and rewards of the job really are. Joshua Bederson is the chief of Neurosurgery at the esteemed Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City. New Yorker writer John Colapinto brings to vivid life what Dr. Bederson's professional life is like to show all the varied facets of his work, from extensive study and research to brain operations, one-on-one consultations with patients, and even staff meetings with fellow surgeons and students. Since Mt. Sinai is a teaching hospital, we learn alongside the residents and interns how Bederson trains neurosurgeons, passing along the knowledge and skills he honed over decades. The result is a multidimensional portrait of a man and a department, a practical guide for how to enter and learn the profession, as well as a moving glimpse into the world of patients and doctors who face some of life's most harrowing challenges.
The jury is still out on how best to prepare high-quality teachers and leaders. How can the perceived "theory-practice divide" be addressed in teacher education? How can teacher educators and leaders tap into learning-from-practice approaches? One great way is to build authentic classroom and teaching experience into the student-teacher discourse. Leadership matters: School leadership and management cases is a set of practical cases for teacher-education students. Case-based and problem-based learning is at the core of this book with the content centering around leadership theories "in context". Students are exposed to "authentic problem contexts" that stimulate learner interest, motivate effort, challenge assumptions and situate learning in the classroom. The book is aimed at pre-service and in-service students. In addition, it is a practical resource for practitioners who would like to improve their practice. All the cases selected for this book are authentic, multi-layered, stimulating and relevant to the South African classroom setting with all its complex and specific challenges. The aim has been to focus on cases that are open-ended, allowing for a variety of interpretations and solutions. Every case is accompanied by questions that may initiate discussion.
