If there’s one thing I’ve learned as a developer, it’s this: complexity happens; simplicity, you have to strive for. Nowhere is this truer than in education. Our role as teachers, by definition, is to simplify subjects so that they can be easily understood. A good teacher dispels trepidation with anecdote, abstraction with analogy, superstition and magic with knowledge.

The Art of Public Speaking an apposite anecdote has saved many a speech from failure. "There is no finer opportunity for the display of tact than in the introduction of witty or humorous stories into a discourse. Wit is keen and like a rapier, piercing deeply, sometimes even to the heart. Humor is good−natured, and does not wound. Wit is founded upon the sudden discovery of an unsuspected relation existing between two ideas. Humor deals with things out of relation−−with the incongruous. It was wit in Douglass Jerrold to retort upon the scowl of a stranger whose shoulder he had...

Principles of Patient Care
Evidence-Based Medicine Evidence-based medicine refers to the concept that clinical decisions are formally supported by data, preferably data that are derived from prospectively designed, randomized, controlled clinical trials. This is in sharp contrast to anecdotal experience, which may often be biased. Unless they are attuned to the importance of using larger, more objective studies for making decisions, even the most experienced physicians can be influenced by recent encounters with selected patients.

“This book starts out with a nice introduction discussing what unit testing is as well as why we should do it. I like the anecdotes peppered throughout the book illustrating the point of why one should bother. . . . I also really liked the analogies you use. It puts the code into a real-world context.” Sharee L. Johnson, Project Lead, Applications Development
A detailed empirical study of how small business owners finance their
enterprises, this volume compares the experiences of women with
those of men. The author redresses an over-reliance on subjective
and anecdotal evidence of discrimination in this area with a controlled

strategies for raising finances.

entrepreneurs in the type and amount of finance used in the business.

“The authors of this book have led a revolution in the craft of programming by controlling the environment in which software grows. Their Petri dish is the mock object, and their microscope is the unit test. This book can show you how these tools introduce a repeatability to your work that would be the envy of any scientist.” —Ward Cunningham “At last a book, suffused with code, that exposes the deep symbiosis between TDD and OOD.
Sources of Evidence: Clinical Trials and Registries The notion of learning from observation of patients is as old as medicine itself. Over the last 50 years, our understanding of how best to turn raw observation into useful evidence has evolved considerably. Case reports, personal anecdotal experience, and small single-center case series are now recognized as having severe limitations to validity and have no role in formulating modern standards of practice. The major tools used to develop reliable evidence consist of the randomized clinical trial and the large observational registry.

products because such information is not yet available for the study area despite
anecdotal evidence of the growing importance of organic products in the country. A
randomly chosen sample of 200 consumers in rural and urban areas of the province’s two
major regions, the former Ciskei and Transkei homeland areas, were enumerated.
It has long been noted anecdotally that affect, psychological
state and neurologic state have influences on
inflammatory skin diseases. Disorders such as psoriasis,
atopic dermatitis, acne and rosacea, among many
others, are reported to become exacerbated by stress.
Furthermore, it is widely believed that stress alters
cutaneous immunity. However, mechanisms responsible
for these effects have remained incompletely
understood. Scientific evidence for an influence of
the nervous system on immune and inflammatory
processes in the skin has been developed only relatively
