David P Perlmutter lives in London, England. He is the very proud father of four children and has one grand-son. David is exceptionally close to his large family, which includes four brothers and one sister, who all live within a 10-mile radius of each other.

It was while living in Portugal several years ago, that David started to write his first book, Wrong Place Wrong Time as a blog, but a friend who read the first couple of chapters, told him it was too good for a blog, it must be a book. Since then this book has become a #1 BESTSELLER on Amazon with hundreds of 5* reviews and has been traditionally published and is in most major book shops.

David's second novel, Five Weeks, is another true story and catalogues a trip to America during which he was almost left for dead in a Pennsylvanian wood.

Apart from writing, David spends a lot of time promoting and marketing authors across the world on his social media platforms.

He has written eight books on marketing for the indie author in his My Way brand, which can be found on Amazon and on his website.

David is a volunteer Cancer Campaigns Ambassador for Cancer Research UK, working with his local MP and the media on cancer related policy issues and campaigns. He also raises money for the charity by arranging book signing events at CRUK shops all over London and the home counties, donating a percentage of book sales.

David enjoys engaging with his 40,000 plus followers on Twitter @davepperlmutter and invites all his read-ers to join him there in 'conversation'.

Islamic Perspectives on the Principles of Biomedical Ethics (Intercultural Dialogue In Bioethics)

Islamic Perspectives on the Principles of Biomedical Ethics presents results from a pioneering seminar in 2013 between Muslim religious scholars, biomedical scientists, and Western bioethicists at the research Center for Islamic Legislation & Ethics, Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies. By examining principle-based bioethics, the contributors to this volume addressed a number of key issues related to the future of the field. Discussion is based around the role of religion in bioethical reasoning, specifically from an Islamic perspective. Also considered is a presentation of the concept of universal principles for bioethics, with a response looking at the possibility (or not) of involving religion. Finally, there is in-depth analysis of how far specific disciplines within the Islamic tradition - such as the higher objectives of Sharia (maq??id al-Shar?'ah) and legal maxims (qaw?'id fiqh?yah) - can enrich principle-based bioethics.

Protecting the Rights of People with Autism in the Fields of Education and Employment: International, European and National Perspectives

Fundamental rights for all people with disabilities, education and employment are key for the inclusion of people with autism. They play as facilitators for the social inclusion of persons with autism and as multipliers for their enjoyment of other fundamental rights. After outlining the international and European dimensions of the legal protection of the rights to education and employment of people with autism, the book provides an in-depth analysis of domestic legislative, judicial and administrative practice of the EU Member States in these fields. Each chapter identifies the good practices on inclusive education and employment of people with autism consistent with principles and obligations enshrined in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Articles 24 and 27). The book contains the scientific results of the European Project "Promoting equal rights of people with autism in the field of employment and education" aimed at supporting the implementation of the UN Convention in the fields of inclusive education and employment.

Marginality: Addressing the Nexus of Poverty, Exclusion and Ecology

This book takes a new approach on understanding causes of extreme poverty and promising actions to address it. Its focus is on marginality being a root cause of poverty and deprivation. "Marginality" is the position of people on the edge, preventing their access to resources, freedom of choices, and the development of capabilities. The book is research based with original empirical analyses at local, national, and local scales; book contributors are leaders in their fields and have backgrounds in different disciplines. An important message of the book is that economic and ecological approaches and institutional innovations need to be integrated to overcome marginality. The book will be a valuable source for development scholars and students, actors that design public policies, and for social innovators in the private sector and non-governmental organizations.
