tricks of the trade in emergency medicine bookWill there be a return to book publishing in this era of digital information chaos and overload? We believe so. We are proud to announce “Tricks of the Trade in Emergency Medicine: Where Experience, Ingenuity, and Evidence Intersect.” Being our own publishers (ALiEM Publishing) and selling through a print-on-demand bookstore has allowed us to design the book with full creative license. In stark contrast to our blog and other digital-based projects, we aimed to create a hardback, full-color book that you can read on a lazy Sunday afternoon, give as a graduation gift, or look delightful on your coffee table. We hope these tips spark your own creativity on how you can better improve your troubleshooting abilities on your next Emergency Department shift.

Pre-Order the Book Now

Print-publishing a book is our means of experimenting with alternative means to sustain our ALiEM projects, most of which are totally free to use but resource-intensive to produce. We are hoping that supporters of our organization and efforts will join us in this next stage of our sustainability journey.

We are offering 500 copies of autographed books to be shipped to the first 500 orders. You can reserve your book as a pre-order purchase starting now. Shipping will start June 1, 2020 as these books are printed on demand.

On behalf of the authors, Drs. Mary Haas, Bryan Hayes, and Nikita Joshi, we look forward to hearing from you and your feedback.
