Award winning physician and teacher Dr. Steven Feldman changes the way his students see the world. In his thought-provoking book, Compartments, Feldman takes readers on a journey into conflicts in healthcare and other groups and organizations, uncovering strange behaviors and hidden truths. These stories explain how separations and borders cause conflict between groups of people: first, there are things in other groups that we don’t see; second, there are things we do see that we shouldn’t trust; and third, our perceptions are controlled by the context in which we make observations.
Compartments includes stories of why previously effective medical treatments suddenly stop working and why some people can’t stop going to tanning beds. Learn why some doctors appear clueless and uncaring to their peers. Explore why different groups of very caring people clash over how to improve healthcare. These stories reveal the underlying structure that causes conflict between different factions in medicine, business, government and even religion. The stories of common misjudgments show how even the brightest, best trained, and most caring people can make judgments that are completely and utterly wrong.
The modern world is thoroughly compartmentalized, causing conflicts in daily life. Learning to recognize the principles elucidated in Compartments helps people avoid needless disputes and end intractable quarrels. What causes these conflicts? Are there good and bad sides? Compartments will give you new insights and perspectives.

Encyclopedia of the Commemorative Coins
of the United States
Anthony J Swiatek
American collectors are undoubtedly familiar with the popular U.S. State Quarters program and the Presidential Dollar coins. Such limited-edition coinage is part of a long tradition, dating back as far as the Columbian Exposition of 1893. Encyclopedia of the Commemorative Coins of the United States celebrates America’s rich numismatic history with the most thorough and wide-ranging volume ever compiled on U.S. commemorative coinage.
Edited and compiled by the country’s leading expert on numismatics, the Encyclopedia provides indispensable information for a broad spectrum of readers--from the reference librarian and the hobbyist to the serious collector. Anthony J. Swiatek not only provides a history for each coin, but also a detailed analysis of contemporary collecting facts, including quantity in existence and the coin’s current value. Swiatek further discusses counterfeit and doctored coins; mint errors; and even other related collectibles, such as cancelled coinage dies. With 668 full-color photographs of coins as well as of historical memorabilia, packaging, and other ephemera, the Encyclopedia is a must-have for the discerning investor and the casual collector, and should be a part of every library's general reference collection.
The book also contains a glossary of coin-collecting terms, a further reading section, and is fully indexed.
An essential, well-organized guide...with a valuable 37-page introduction...in straightforward language. The glossary makes the book’s specialized language accessible to novices—Library Journal
