This book will provide you with concise informative guides to avoid the pitfalls and misleading marketing when purchasing a telescope or other beginner astronomy equipment for yourself or others. This is NOT a buyer's guide for specific makes and models of equipment because such guides become quickly outdated and useless. This book will teach you how to determine for yourself what equipment best suites your needs. The misleading marketing of some telescopes is so bad that in my opinion it is even more flagrant than the marketing of "snake oil" alternative medicine products. But at least you won't be spending your health care money on beginner telescopes (that comes later after you are more involved in the hobby). With some products you can trust that a name-brand version is a good choice, even if you know very little about the product.. Unfortunately, that is no help with beginner scopes. Strangely, a large number of high end professional telescope companies make junk toy telescopes and use misleading marketing and advertising for these scopes. The aim of this book is to be a short, concise guide to becoming not only an educated consumer when shopping for a first telescope, but also to make sure you are not disappointed with your first experiences using an amateur telescope.
In contrast to the frequency of disorders of the autonomic nervous system, detailed knowledge on the diagnosis and treatment of ANS diseases is relatively scant among the majority of clinical specialists. Taking into account the prevalence of these disorders, good autonomic skills are mandatory to put patients on the right clinical track. This book serves as a guide for the everyday clinical management of ANS disorders from identifying key symptoms for autonomic involvement to comprehensive history taking. It helps determining the anatomic distribution of the disease as well as underlying autonomic syndromes and guides the reader towards transforming the clinical picture into a coherent explanation of the patient's autonomic problem. In addition, the book provides guidelines for choosing appropriate autonomic and laboratory tests and developing appropriate non-pharmacological and pharmacological management strategies. With cases from clinical experience and a list of available online resources, this book will be a useful guide for trainees and young doctors interested in autonomic disorders from the fields of neurology, internal medicine, cardiology, diabetes and urology.
