Good Boss, Bad Boss

Robert Sutton
Authors:
Robert Sutton

Good Boss, Bad Boss was inspired by the thousands of emails, calls and conversations that Robert Sutton received after publishing his bestseller The No Asshole Rule - he found that most of the stories and cries for help he received revolved around one central figure in every workplace: THE BOSS.Sutton's subsequent research showed that the success of every boss depended heavily on how well (or badly) they managed those they worked with and in Good Boss, Bad Boss he demonstrates this by weaving together the best psychological and management secrets with true stories, to reveal the mindset and moves of the best bosses, and contrasts them with the behaviour of the worst.If you want to understand how the best bosses think and act so that you can get better at your job or find a better boss to work for, Good Boss, Bad Boss has all the answers.

The Art of Asking

Amanda Palmer
Authors:
Amanda Palmer

NOW FEATURING POSTSCRIPT FROM MARIA POPOVA'When we really see each other, we want to help each other' - Amanda PalmerImagine standing on a box in the middle of a busy city, dressed as a white-faced bride, and silently using your eyes to ask people for money. Or touring Europe in a punk cabaret band, and finding a place to sleep each night by reaching out to strangers on Twitter. For Amanda Palmer, actions like these have gone beyond satisfying her basic needs for food and shelter - they've taught her how to turn strangers into friends, build communities, and discover her own giving impulses. And because she had learned how to ask, she was able to go to the world to ask for the money to make a new album and tour with it, and to raise over a million dollars in a month.In the New York TImes bestseller The Art of Asking, Palmer expands upon her popular TED talk to reveal how ordinary people, those of us without thousands of Twitter followers and adoring fans, can use these same principles in our own lives.

Each chapter identifies a common problem at work and resolves each problem in a clear and approachable way.Chapters include:- Cash is King (and Ace, Queen and Jack) - How to a write a business plan, and a strategy, and is there a difference?- Is there life beyond email?- The art of delegationTo find out more, visit www.rogermavity.com.

Unthinking

Authors:
Harry Beckwith

What do Howard Hughes and 50 Cent have in common, and what do they tell us about Americans and our desires? Why did Sean Connery stop wearing a toupee, and what does this tell us about American customers for any product? What one thing did the Beatles, Malcolm Gladwell and Nike all notice about Americans that helped them win us over? Which uniquely American traits may explain the plights of Krispy Kreme, Ford, and GM, and the risks faced by Starbuck's? Why, after every other plea failed, did "Click It or Ticket" get people to buy the idea of fastening their seat belts? To paraphrase Don Draper's character on the hit show Mad Men, "What do people want?" What is the new American psyche, and how do America's shrewdest marketers tap it? Drawing from dozens of disciplines, the internationally acclaimed marketing expert Harry Beckwith answers these questions with some surprising, even startling, truths and discoveries about what motivates us.

The Grateful Dead, one of the most popular bands of all time, still enjoys incredible relevance to this day. But let's admit it, they weren't exactly poster boys for corporate America. Or were they?

Now, business professor and lifelong Deadhead Barry Barnes shares the 10 most innovative business lessons from the band's illustrious career, including: creating and delivering superior customer value; implementing a flat management structure; sharing your content; and more. Barnes shows how the Dead were masters of "strategic improvisation"-the ability to adapt to changing times and circumstances-and that their success lay in their commitment to relentless variation. EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT BUSINESS I LEARNED FROM THE GRATEFUL DEAD teaches readers how they did it-and what any business can learn from their long, strange trip.
