    1-0 out of 5 stars One-sided approach to regulation
    I would have preferred a text that merely reported employers' compliance obligations in an objective manner, rather than portraying employers as the enemy.I generally found the text to be highly politicized and, to some extent, anti-management.This book does little to bridge the gap between the business community and academia.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Employment Law for business
    As an attorney, manager, and teacher of human resources professionals, I recommend this book.I found that thie information was thoroughly researched. I also appreciated that the legal information was presented in a business context so that managers who are not lawyers could understand the information andreadily appy it to real life workplace problems.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Useful Book.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not a basic wiring guide
    This is THE guide book for electricians and engineers. Almost 700 pages of useful information. The layout, tables, and ease of understanding have all improved over past editions. But this is not a basic wiring guide and it will only frustrate those without some electrical background. If you need to meet code - you need this book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Start Here
    This is the first book I read on Asperger's, and I am glad that it was.Tony Attwood is one of the leading experts on Asperger's.He really gets it and doesn't try to fit an Asperger child into a nt understanding of the world, but goes to the Asperger world.It has really helped me understand myself and my children better.Well done!I can't wait to see more from him.

    5-0 out of 5 stars At the very top of my list
    My son was found with some type of High Functioning Autism about two months ago. I'm a physician and behavioral researcher, though not in the area of autism or anything related to children or developmental disorders. I've read many books, scientific texts, online publications... you name it, in the past weeks. I've obtained very valuable information from all of them. This book does not go into the details of genetics or the neurological issues around Autism, in which I'm deeply interested, but I got that from other sources. However, it was from this book that I could draw a clear plan of action for my son and my family. Mr. Atwood must be a very smart and practical person. So far, of all that I've read, I'd put this book at the top, with the much more academic though less practical textbook on AS by Klin, Volkmar and Sparrow.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good book for uneducated teachers with regards to law
    With all the horror stories we hear about teachers being fired and sued over decesions they made about punishment and what to teach and how to teach, this book is a gold mine. It provides information on just about any topic a teach may encounter. Not only does it have great information, it is also written with few "legal trade" words. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource, but guidance was helpful
    Teachers and the Law (6th Edition) was the primary text used for my National-Louis University (Wheeling, IL) School Law course. Although the text implies that only information regarding teachers will be discussed, Fischer actually covers legal issues that deal with many levels of educational law including student cases, administrator cases, and even cases that don't involve teachers at all, but loosely relate to educational law in general.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Teachers and the Law
    I received the book in good shape.The cover looked next to new and there were very little marks or highlights in the text.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for Teachers
    Case law, unless done perhaps by the likes of John Grissam, is not page turning material.However, the authors have done an incredible job of putting very pressing and often complex areas into an accessible and engaging book.Written in an easy to use question and answer format, the updated book touches on education legal issues ranging from free speech, to students with disabilities, to internet issues.While of great use for educator (or educators to be), the book could also easily be adapted for classroom use, either as a debate or research starter.Worth every penny of its price. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars What a cleaverly crafted book
    I'll tell you I never had so much fun reading a book. It nearly brought me to hysterics of laughter. I was laughing so loud it made me cry. Superb mix of prose and gentle words of comfort. I tell you, if you don't go out and purchase this book right now you're going to loose out. I heard that the price is going to jump here real soon. Dr Gesell really knows how to put in plain English the complex world of Airport security. It just makes me sick to think it took this long to discover his writing. My friends in Fargo can't stop talking about this. I'm going to have to look for all of his books, now. Thank you, Dr Gesell. And thank you CAP. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars All the legal tips, tricks and traps explained
    Plenty of books impart the basics of how to work independently - but too few include all the legal tips, tricks and traps involved. WORKING FOR YOURSELF: LAW & TAXES FOR INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS, FREELANCERS & CONSULTANTS covers everything from setting appropriate fees and understanding how and when taxes are paid to limiting liability and getting paid. Record-keeping processes are simplified with sample logs and entry advice, chapters on how the IRS defines an independent contractor versus a paid employee are essential keys to keeping independent status, and advice on pricing and insurance offer key strategy-oriented tips and approaches. A 'must' for any who would work independently.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Great straghtforward information and advice
    I recently a started an S corp for my software contracting.The book is helpful and worth the price.It won't answer EVERY question you will have, but you probably should talk to a CPA for those anyway.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Wyland of Toothfish
    Mr. Knecht will hopefully bring awareness to the plight of the Patagonian Toothfish like Wyland did for whales.This book is well written and keeps the reader interested throughout ... He traces the journey of the "fishing pirates" and also blends the story of commercialization of this soon-to-be extinct fish.Let's save these fish!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Combines culinary history with a world-wide chase to document the fading Chilean Sea Bass
    HOOKED: PIRATES POACHING AND THE PERFECT FISH promises much for a wide audience, from those interested in fishing to others researching modern-day pirating and the politics of the sea. The explosive world-wide demand for popular fish has all but fostered over-fishing and all but condoned seafood piracy: HOOKED combines culinary history with a world-wide chase to document the fading Chilean Sea Bass, a prehistoric-looking fish with the richness of tuna and the texture of butter. It's hard to place this rich text: part culinary history, part social inquiry, largely environmental exploration - it also fits under 'True Adventure'. Many will find it compelling.

    The book arrived ina timely fashion and I would definitely buy my textbooks through Amazon again

    5-0 out of 5 stars Almost Painless Public School Law
    This Sixth Edition of American Public School Law is a comprehensive treatment of noteworthy public school case law that also serves to outline the history of our country. It's user friendly, while not lowering the bar for comprehension. Legal lingo is left intact, but translations are offered for those of us who are reading it for School Law classes, as opposed to Law School classes. There's a useful glossary, and a handy index for locating specific topics, and the cases that illustrate them. This is a book you'll want to keep.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Public School Court Cases
    I ordered the book for my graduate class. It contains landmark court cases and rulings dealing with public school issues in all U.S. states. It is a great source for public school administrators and basically an easy read for those who have never had a law class.

    The IBC is the long-time-coming consolidation of the three major building codes in the US and there is nothing "international" about it.Back in the 70's the 3 code organizations formed BOCA and put out a 1 & 2 family dwelling code. The 3 members them gradually made changes to the individual building codes that brought them into similar formats, then they combined them into one code in 2000, the IBC, and modified the dwelling code to be the IRC (Int. Residential Code)and changed the organization's name to the ICC, the Int. Code Council. There little to review about the content since it is either the law in your area or it is not.For comparisons to previous codes and other information try the ICC's website http://www.iccsafe.org/

    It is pretty difficult to review a specification that you must have.

    5-0 out of 5 stars 49 states are now adopting this Code
    Better learn this code.Local codes are being swept away by one standard.Here is Colorado each town had its own test, amendments and licensing system.California is the only state, having revamped its code 2 years ago, to keep its system.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource
    This reference book covers developmental, clinical, educational, family, and intervention issues of concern to teachers working with children with disabilities. Written by doctors, it thoroughly explores issues than impact child development starting from conception through adulthood. Factors that can cause disabilities, current methods of treatment, commonly used medications, and guidelines for intervention are addressed. 4-0 out of 5 stars Solid Introductory Book
    Batshaw's Children with Disabilities is a "must have" book for anyone who works with children with disabilities...almost.Written by doctors for those in the medical professional most of the recommendedinterventions come from a decidedly medical model.It is, on the otherhand, fairly comprehensive with sections dealing with genetics,development, developmental disabilities, and interventions with the bulk ofthe book dealing with specific disabilities from the obscure (Fragile XSyndrome) to the more common (AD/HD).I have not found Appendix A or Bparticularly useful (Glossary and Syndromes of Inborn Errors of Metabolism)but turn to Appendix C and D frequently (Commonly Used Medication andResources for Children with Disabilities) Finally, while the book offers anice mix of theory and application, I would like to see (maybe in a 5thEdition?) the incorporation of some of the so-called "new brainresearch."Nevertheless, I still turn to this book several times eachmonth. ...
