The Untaught Science of Skill Building – Out of Syllabus
It’s a hardcore and sad fact that more than one-third of the millions that graduate in our country each year are unemployable. A survey across the country has found a majority of graduates lacked adequate "soft skills" to be employed in the industry. Lack of communication skills lands Indian students in low paid jobs.
Microbial Catabolism – A Review
This book contains 100 pathways for microbial catabolic metabolism of primarily xenobiotic organic compounds. It includes information on most known microbial catabolic reaction types and the organic functional groups they transform. The purpose of this book is to provide a thorough overview of research and developments being carried out in the field of microbial degradation of xenobiotics compounds which are causing harm to the global environment and human race in general. This book also aims in creating an interest amongst diligent readers who may find new avenues for research. Each section provides an overview of a metabolic pathway of a particular compound that is a central component of the human use in a particular area. Due to its organization, the handbook can be used as a reference book by researchers of related field and can be read for individual sections or chapters. This compilation can also be used as a book for advanced courses in Microbiology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Environmental sciences, Enzymology and Metabolic engineering.
Don’t Talk, Listen
"Don't talk-Listen" we have been shouting, as teachers in our classes for more than two decades. Not only students, but nobody seems to listen. The list includes friends, juniors, seniors, relatives and every other individual we meet. It hurts a lot when the people we love and care about are not really listening and this is a general experience of all of us. A sympathetic ear is a powerful force in human relationships. This book introduces readers and students to "Listening" as a powerful communication tool. Listening is totally different from hearing and something that is bigger than you may realize. Listening translates the principles of human understanding. At work, it becomes the reason for gaining or losing business and opportunities. Listening is the basis for strong, enriching love relationships in our lives. It broadens our view, lays the basis for peace, enriches the quality of our relationships, and opens the way for success. Unfortunately all the advanced pedagogic systems and institutions are void without a curriculum for "Listening". We hope this book fills that lacuna and will be of great help for everyone who wants to improve their listening skills.
Air Microbiology: An Environment and Health Perspective
This book is currently the only one solely devoted to Air microbiology. Considering the importance of air in our lives, and the fact that very scare or little information/literature is available on the subject, an attempt has been made to give comprehensive and exhaustive information regarding all the aspects of Air Microbiology. This book covers all the important aspects of air microbiology which is essentially a part of study for Microbiology, Content wise, the book is rich in latest and modern methodologies including nucleic acid sequencing and microbial strain typing.
