I thought I'd mention, again, a new book, Managing Differences: How to Build Better Relationships at Work and Home by Daniel Dana -- probably worth reading.  I've liked other works by Dan Dana well enough to note this without having read it. I've been so terribly busy recently, though I have lost fifty pounds since November of 2005.

I've blogged about the weight loss at: -- bottom line is that I spent five dollars at SAMS.  There is a book on the method, it ships next week, so it is obviously very optional, everything you need is on the web.

One last note in books, someone old and something (rewritten) new:

G. Richard Shell -- Bargaining for Advantage (2006)

David Binder -- Legal Interviewing and Counseling: A Client-Centered Approach (1977) -- the law school -- is recruiting another ADR professor.  Marquette has an excellent program, they've put much of it on-line and it makes an excellent example of how a program can be put together -- it invites comparison with other programs.  They are recruiting to strengthen what they are doing, which is admirable. Look over the program at and contact Associate Dean Peter Rofes if you are interested.  The solid quote from the site:  "Our primary courses in ADR are all taught by full-time faculty as is the mediation clinic. Each of the professors has written numerous articles and textbooks in their respective areas. In addition, the Marquette Law Review hosted a special symposium on the Uniform Mediation Act in 2001. A similar symposium on the emerging interdisciplinary negotiation canon was held in Fall 2003."

Interesting new Mediation & ADR (and other) web sites and useful links:
