Eradication Of Smallpox

RRP $280.99

Simply, and with great humanity, The Eradication of Smallpox tells the story of smallpox - it's origins, the horror of the disease, and the millions of people killed or disfigured by it. During the 18th and 19th centuries, it is estimated that one out of every ten people died from the disease; some say one out of every seven. Smallpox attacked very young children in particular.
The story progresses with the practice of variolation, the life of Edward Jenner who first proposed 'vaccination' with cow pox vaccine (little James Phipps was the first person ever vaccinated in this way), the years of debate about the efficacy of this novel method, and the later worldwide initiatives to rid the planet of this horrific disease. In 1979, the story culminates in the only total eradication of an infectious disease that mankind has ever accomplished. This year celebrates the 20th anniversary of this momentous achievement.
In the intervening years, debate has raged about what we should do with the remaining smallpox viral stocks. Do we destroy them, so they can't fall into the hands of bioterrorists, or do we maintain them, in case they may be of use in some unexpected way, for therapeutic purposes? These questions are thoroughly discussed in the book.

The Franchise Rules

RRP $14.99

Revised and Expanded Edition: Buying a franchise may be the road to financial independence but only if you can find a great franchise that is a great 'fit' for you. In the past decade I've spoken with many people who say they no longer want to work for someone else. They're tired of the uncertainty that goes along with corporate jobs and of creating financial rewards for others. These are people who want to be in control of their future. Contrary to the thinking of some, being a successful franchise owner requires a lot more than just plopping down a pile of money and waiting for the profits to roll in. I know many franchise owners; some are extremely successful while others struggle. In most cases the difference between the two groups is not due to the skill or dedication of the owner, but his/her 'fit' with the franchise system. During my years as both an owner and broker of franchised businesses, I'm frequently asked how to find a great 'fitting' franchise. Without realizing it I developed rules that help guide my clients to find that great 'fit.
