Recommended by Teachers, Trusted by Parents "My 12-year-old daughter enjoyed this workbook. We have tried a variety of workbooks, but I will say this particular workbook is the only one to offer a short story drawing that she can enter for a chance to win $100. Definitely piqued her interest to get her writing, which I thought is fantastic. In all other regards, she said the reading seems easy and the math a little more challenging. It also has little daily exercise segments that got my daughter in the habit of exercising in the morning to help kickstart her day. I thought that was great!

2. Deep Medicine: How Artificial Intelligence Can Make Healthcare Human Again

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Chemical Engineering - August 2021

One of America's top doctors reveals how AI will empower physicians and revolutionize patient care Medicine has become inhuman, to disastrous effect. The doctor-patient relationship--the heart of medicine--is broken: doctors are too distracted and overwhelmed to truly connect with their patients, and medical errors and misdiagnoses abound. In Deep Medicine , leading physician Eric Topol reveals how artificial intelligence can help. AI has the potential to transform everything doctors do, from notetaking and medical scans to diagnosis and treatment, greatly cutting down the cost of medicine and reducing human mortality. By freeing physicians from the tasks that interfere with human connection, AI will create space for the real healing that takes place between a doctor who can listen and a patient who needs to be heard. Innovative, provocative, and hopeful, Deep Medicine shows us how the awesome power of AI can make medicine better, for all the humans involved.

4. Scientific Soapmaking: The Chemistry of the Cold Process

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Chemical Engineering - August 2021

Until now, there were just two kinds of books on soapmaking. Books for the commodity soap industry emphasized the economical production of soap by the ton and were written for those with a background in chemistry and chemical engineering. Books for the emerging craft industry emphasized the production of high-quality soap by the pound and were aimed at those familiar with the format of cookbooks. Makers of handcrafted soap often wish they had paid more attention in chemistry class so that the information of the commodity soap books would be accessible to them. Scientific Soapmaking answers that call by bridging the gap between the technical and craft literatures. It explains the chemistry of fats, oils, and soaps, and it teaches sophisticated analytical techniques that can be carried out using equipment and materials familiar to makers of handcrafted soap. Presented in a college textbook format, Scientific Soapmaking guides students and individual soapmakers alike to formulate questions about soap and design experiments to answer those questions scientifically.

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Chemical Engineering - August 2021

Michael R. Lindeburg PE’s  FE Chemical Review Manual  offers complete review for the NCEES FE Chemical exam. This book is intended to guide you through the Chemical Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examination body of knowledge and the idiosyncrasies of the National Council of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors (NCEES) FE Reference Handbook ( NCEES Handbook ). This book is not intended as a reference book, because you cannot use it while taking the FE examination. The only reference you may use is the NCEES Handbook . However, the NCEES Handbook is not intended as a teaching tool, nor is it an easy document to use. The NCEES Handbook was never intended to be something you study or learn from, or to have value as anything other than an examday compilation.  Many of its features may distract you because they differ from what you were expecting, were exposed to, or what you currently use. To effectively use the NCEES Handbook , you must become familiar with its features, no matter how odd they may seem. FE Chemical Review Manual will help you become familiar with the format, layout, organization, and odd conventions of the NCEES Handbook . This book, which displays the NCEES Handbook material in blue for easy identification, satisfies two important needs: it is (1) something to learn from, and (2) something to help you become familiar with the NCEES Handbook . Topics Covered Chemical Reaction Engineering Chemistry Computational Tools Engineering Sciences Ethics and Professional Practice Fluid Mechanics/Dynamics Heat Transfer Mass Transfer and Separation Material/Energy Balances Materials Science Mathematics Probability and Statistics Process Control Process Design and Economics Safety, Health, and Environment Thermodynamics   Key Features: Complete coverage of all exam knowledge areas. Equations, figures, and tables of the NCEES FE Reference Handbook to familiarize you with the reference you’ll have on exam day. Concise explanations supported by exam-like example problems, with step-by-step solutions to reinforce the theory and application of fundamental concepts. A robust index with thousands of terms to facilitate referencing. Binding: Paperback PPI, A Kaplan Company

9. Detector Dogs and Scent Movement: How Weather, Terrain, and Vegetation Influence Search Strategies

Top 10 Best Books to Read in Chemical Engineering - August 2021

Dogs detect scent from a source that is carried to them in a plume by the wind. The most important tool for a detector dog handler to have on searches is a knowledge of scent plume movement or "scent dynamics" (the science of scent movement). Such knowledge resides primarily in scientific journals that are largely inaccessible to detector dog handlers and written in language that is difficult to understand. Detector Dogs and the Science of Scent Movement: A Handler’s Guide to Environments and Procedures retrieves, reviews, and interprets the results of pertinent scientific research on scent dynamics and presents these results in terms that are easier for handlers to understand. Information on the physiology of the dog’s nose, their sense of smell, and the properties of scent provide the essential information on the process of scenting. The composition of training aids for explosives, narcotics, human remains and other sources is discussed. Recommendations are made on the use of training aids, their placement during training, and the resulting availability of scent. Potential problems and handler errors in the use of training aids are also examined. The characteristics of scent plumes and how wind influences their movement are a key focus of the book. The primary task for the handler is to get the dog into the scent plume so that the dog can detect the scent and follow it to the source the handler seeks. As such, a knowledge of scent and scent plume movement will vastly improve the ability of the handler to accomplish this task. The influence of weather and physical settings such as terrain, vegetation, ground cover, soil and water on scent movement are examined in detail. Strategies for searching, detecting, and locating sources in all physical settings are presented. Specific effects associated with hills and mountains, fields and forests, bare soils and soils covered by vegetation, different soil types, and lakes and rivers are examined in detail. This includes specific recommendations are made about weather and physical settings that result in higher probability of success on searches. Detector Dogs and the Science of Scent Movement will be a vital resource for K9 handles in the private and public sectors―including in Homeland Security, law enforcement, and military settings―as well as a useful guide for lawyers, forensic, and investigative professionals who need to better understand K9 operations.
