Critical care by Richard Dooling( Book )

Dr. Peter Werner Ernst is an internal medicine resident at a major hospital's intensive care unit. He functions on eight hours of sleep for every three shifts at work. Overseeing the care of eight patients, Dr. Ernst's job is to keep death at bay--at least until the day shift comes on, and any potential death goes on someone else's record. When Felicia Potter enters the ward to visit her comatose father, Dr. Ernst sees the opportunity to spice up his grim routine with a little romance. What he cannot see is how his relationship with the young attractive model will call into question his integrity, his dedication to his career, and just how far he will go for the sake of his lust

Blue streak : swearing, free speech, and sexual harassment by Richard Dooling( Book )
5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 530 libraries worldwide
"Most language issues from the cerebral cortex - evolution's pride and joy. But swearing erupts from the buried, primitive limbic system, which is the same part of the brain that produces passion, hatred, and aggression. As National Book Award nominee Richard Dooling tells us in his smart, funny, and erudite exploration of verbal taboos, this difference in linguistic origin explains why many people who suffer brain damage that destroys their ordinary speaking abilities can nevertheless cuss up a storm. It also helps to explain why swearing pervades all eras, cultures, and levels of human society: We have the hardware for swearing built into our systems, and nature - or at least human nature - doesn't like to let any tool lie around unused." "But our capacity and our impulse to give vocal offense have always run smack into good manners, and in America these days they also run smack into political correctness and federal regulations. These age-old and newfangled conflicts provide Richard Dooling with his richest sources of insight and humor. He demonstrates in logical and hilarious detail why government rules about language are next to unenforceable, focusing directly on those that involve sexual harassment. He skeptically follows the trail of professional psychobabble about profanity, and he traces the history and meaning of several primary English curse words and their tendency to wax and wane in transgressiveness. Right now, for example, "hell" is often used as a conversational litmus test for dirty-word tolerance, and it's the only common imprecation that doesn't involve scatology or sex. But in Blue Streak, Dooling makes a convincing case that "Go to hell" should be regarded as the ultimate insult, and he proceeds to prove that cursing is not only part of our biology, but a necessary component of any religious view of the universe."--Jacket
Rapture for the geeks : when AI outsmarts IQ by Richard Dooling( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 362 libraries worldwide
"Dooling looks at what some of the greatest minds have to say about our role in a future in which technology rapidly leaves us in the dust. ... Dooling provocatively examines nothing less than what it means to be human in what he playfully calls the age of B.S.(before Singularity, the era when computers outthink humans)--and what life will be like when we are no longer alone with Mother Nature at Darwin's card table."--Dust cover
