Malcolm Gladwell, Bestsellerautor und Star des amerikanischen Buchmarkts, hat die wahren Ursachen des Erfolgs untersucht und darüber ein lehrreiches, faszinierendes Buch geschrieben. Es steckt voller Geschichten und Beispiele, die zeigen, dass auch außergewöhnlicher Erfolg selten etwas mit individuellen Eigenschaften zu tun hat, sondern mit Gegebenheiten, die es dem einen leicht und dem anderen unmöglich machen, erfolgreich zu sein. Die Frage ist nicht, wie jemand ist, sondern woher er kommt: Welche Bedingungen haben diesen Menschen hervorgebracht? Auf seiner anregenden intellektuellen Erkundung der Welt der Überflieger erklärt Gladwell unter anderem das Geheimnis der Softwaremilliardäre, wie man ein herausragender Fußballer wird, warum Asiaten so gut in Mathe sind und was die Beatles zur größten Band aller Zeiten machte.

COBRA. The "Antidumping Law." EMTALA. By any name, it's the law. And, without exaggeration, it's one of the largest, most profound challenges facing emergency physicians, emergency departments and emergency patient care. This book presents a complete yet practical approach to understanding the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act. It provides comprehensive answers to specific questions on how to deliver emergency care under the federal "antidumping" law, and offers insights on how that law is enforced. The author, Robert A. Bitterman, MD, JD, FACEP, was one of three ACEP representatives to the EMTALA work groups established by HCFA. Dr. Bitterman's extensive knowledge of the inner workings of EMTALA enforcement, combined with his hands-on experience as a long-time practicing emergency physician, make this book the definitive, authoritative resource for all your questions about the law and its related concerns. Dr. Bitterman has been "in the loop" of EMTALA regulatory activity for years. He had the best, most current information available at the time the book was published, and he was able to anticipate the direction government enforcers might take on issues that were not yet resolved.
