Care of the Critically Ill Patient in the Tropics
Care of the Critically Ill Patient in the Tropics
by D. Watters
Edition: Paperback
Price: £17.75

5.0 out of 5 stars THE book to read for Critical care in the Indian sub-continent, 21 Mar. 2014
I have trained outside India and now working in India.The trainees often ask which book to read and start with Irwin and Rippe and end with the MGH critical care handbook.Only, if they read this book they would appear much more sensible and do much less idiotic things than they do otherwise.Sickle cell, Thalassaemia,Malaria,Dengue are all very common in India as well and this book summarises very well what really should be done .
It is 2004 edition but I would finish this first then move to something more exhaustive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy and Empowering for a beginner, 23 Jan. 2012
This book is absolutely brilliant. I am a beginner who has struggled with Keyboard ending up making noises rather than music.This book got me going in less than an hour(mainly because it was written with Casio keyboard and mine was Yamaha).

His concepts are simple and the steps very easily followed and delivered in a particular way adding a layer on top of another.This books seems to be in the very British tradition of "Lecture notes on...." , and succeeds very well.
Some of the introduction to new information is very intuitive.For example, saying that the "E" note is the bottom line of the staff, the gap above is F and one below is D.Others have tried to make it easy by mnemonics as "Every good boy.." or "FACE" or where "G" starts, in all those cases you have too scan to find the line or space and in doing so, a beginner loses whatever music they had.E is the bottom line is easy it hits you as you go up the C.

The voices or instruments are suggested as well because everything in the Grand Piano voice on a half decent keyboard and the ambition of a beginner is not very melodious.

This book is somewhat dated but manageable as regards technical terms relating to keyboard and does start with Casio keyboard as the instrument.However, the very first chapter does intsruct you to understand your keyboard from its manual.

There are hints on working out the music by ear for hear and play.There is an index as well.
Overall, I found this book very helpful.
