Research scientists play a pivotal role in society. Their passion for science will drive them forward, leading to new discoveries that will ultimately make the world a better place. Unfortunately, as the professional environment becomes more and more competitive, research scientists today cannot just rely on technical knowledge to carve successful careers. Besides technical skills, they will need to acquire other skills, such as how to communicate their science to the outside world. A Survival Guide for Research Scientists is a one-stop-shop that will help you to develop those core skills not often taught at school or university. The book has been written by an author with more than 20 years of scientific research experience (across different scientific disciplines). She has not only been a research scientist but also a writer, a consultant, a sole-trader and a project manager. A Survival Guide for Research Scientists takes on a holistic approach in order to help you pave the way for success. As such, it features practical guidelines on how to: • conduct your scientific research (how to: do literature review, design experiments, adopt best practice, ensure health and safety, etc.). • write and edit (reports, bid proposals, peer review publications, etc). • interact with the outside world (be a team leader, manage a project, network, deal with difficult people, do presentations, organise meetings, etc.). • look after your career (and get your dream job). • look after yourself (and how to manage stress). • look for a job (develop your CV, prepare for interviews, etc.). • become self-employed (and achieve business success). • deal with redundancy (and move forward in life, etc) Whatever your scientific background may be, this book is the perfect accompaniment, to guide you at every stage of your career.
Romantic Suicide is a book for the romantic who just cant seem to get it right. Its also for the romantic who wants to get it right the first time. In the pages within, I am going to share with you the 45 unbreakable rules I have learned over the years for avoiding what I call romantic suicidei.e. doing something foolish (but preventable) during the first few months of a relationship that scares her (or him) off. It is not a book on how to put your best foot forward; it is a book on how to avoid putting your foot in your mouth. It is not a book on how to present yourself in your best light; it is a book on how to avoid covering up your light with a scary shadow. And it is not a book on how to keep the girl (or guy) of your dreams; it is a book on how to avoid losing her. Read this book and embrace its lessons and you will never again commit romantic suicide. I learned all of this the hard way. If you read this book, you won't have to.
