Your Superstar Brain

Kaja Nordengen
Authors:
Kaja Nordengen

Why does the brain work the way it does? Can you eat 'brain food' to remember better? Can the brain be retrained? Can you activate the parts of the brain you don't use? Can you smile yourself to happiness?This is a book about all the secrets of your most incredible organ. Your brain makes you who you are. It learns, falls in love and interprets complex patterns. But it also causes you to make bad decisions and rewards addiction. Join neurologist Kaja Nordengen in her fascinating journey through the many unexplored territories of the human brain. Divided into thirteen short chapters, the book describes how the brain works - both how it's physically constructed with nerves, synapses and cerebral cortex, but also how it functions on a more abstract level - everything from what happens when we fall in love to where we find our sense of self.

The Right and Wrong Stuff

Carter Cast
Authors:
Carter Cast

Nearly a quarter century ago Carter Cast seemed to have it all together: he had a first-class education, an all-American athletic career, and was a very bright and energetic rising star on the fast track at a Fortune 100 company, PepsiCo. But blissfully unaware of how negative perceptions were shaped, he was stunned when called into his boss's office, and told he was "unpromotable" because he was "obstinate," "resistant," and "insubordinate."Baffled, scared, and embarrassed, that defining moment led to Cast's years-long effort to try to understand why he came so close to going off track, discovering that what he saw as idiosyncratic was actually widespread. His research shows that 98 percent of people have at least one derailment risk factor and that half to two-thirds actually go off the rails. More often than not, people get fired, demoted, or plateau not because they lack the "right stuff," but because they let the "wrong stuff" act out. Derailment often afflicts talented people who are either unaware of a debilitating weakness or an interpersonal blind spot, or are arrogant enough to believe that feedback doesn't apply to them. Cast's experiences and research led to five defining archetypes--Captain Fantastic, the One-Trick Pony, the Solo Flyer, Version 1.0, and the Whirling Dervish--that express traits that cut across gender and every level of seniority and that play out everywhere, from big corporations to small law firms, from education institutions to raw start-ups. He shows how these archetypes fail and succeed, and how to recognize blind spots that can lead to downfall. He provides ways to improve self-understanding--digging into topics like values, needs, and motives--and provides the reader with new ways to take charge of his or her career.

Slam-Dunk Success

Byron Scott, Charles Norris, Jon Warech
Authors:
Byron Scott, Charles Norris, Jon Warech

Charles Norris and Byron Scott have seen it all during their years in the boardroom and on the court. Scott has played alongside the likes of Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and James Worthy, and coached stars such as Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, and Kyrie Irving. Norris traveled the world through his years in the bottled water and consumer food product industries, led an employee base of 2,500+ people, restructured companies from the ground up, and battled executives on behalf of the blue-collar worker. In each of their respective fields, Scott and Norris have corralled egos, led from every position, created chemistry, and survived the many highs and lows to get to where they are today.In SLAM-DUNK SUCCESS, Scott and Norris share their epiphany that there is only one set of rules to success in life. If you want to be an NBA champion or an all-star in the boardroom, you will likely live by the same core values. The authors divulge their secrets to success in SLAM-DUNK SUCCESS, from leadership tactics to handling tough decisions to confidence building and motivation - they provide a game plan for life based on their individual, yet similar experiences.SLAM-DUNK SUCCESS brings together two very different worlds and shows that the concepts behind solid leadership are the same in any arena. Life isn't about small victories, it's about figuring out what's blocking you from greatness and finding a way to be a champion. This book is Byron Scott and Charles Norris' way of asking, "How can we help?"
