Soul Full of Coal Dust

Chris Hamby
Authors:
Chris Hamby

Decades have passed since black lung disease was considered a national disgrace and Congress was pushed to take legislative action. Since then, however, not much has changed. Big coal companies, along with their allies in the legal and medical professions, have not only flouted the law and exposed miners to deadly amounts of coal dust, but systematically denied benefits to miners who suffer and die as a result of their jobs. Soul Full of Coal Dust is a real-life thriller, the story of one of the nation's most voiceless populations and its attempts to challenge one of the world's most powerful forces: Big Coal. It is the story of these men and women, who have little access to education and few options in life, and their small group of advocates -- lawyers and doctors often working out of their homes or in rural clinics and tiny offices. For decades, they have been fighting to wrench even modest compensation and medical costs from our nation's biggest mining interests - all for a disease that should have been virtually eradicated years ago. Full of the rich and complex atmosphere of Appalachia, packed with stories of workers who have toiled in the mines of West Virginia, Kentucky, and Virginia, as well as tense courtroom dramas, Soul Full of Coal Dust is an important and timely book about injustice and resistance.

No Limits

John C. Maxwell
Authors:
John C. Maxwell

We often treat the word capacity as if it were a natural law of limitation. Unfortunately, most of us are much more comfortable defining what we perceive is off limits rather than what's possible. Could it be that many people have allowed what they perceive as capacity to define them? Have they allowed their perception to limit their attitudes about their potential? In his newest book, John Maxwell identifies 17 core capacities. Some of these are abilities we all already possess, such as energy, creativity and leadership. Others are aspects of our lives controlled by our choices, like our attitudes, character, and intentionality. Maxwell examines each of these 17 capacities, and provides clear and actionable advice on how you can increase your potential in each. He will guide you on how to identify, grow, and apply your critical capacities to your daily life. Once you've blown the "cap" off your capacities, you'll find yourself more successful--and fulfilled--in your daily life.

Unscaled

Hemant Taneja
Authors:
Hemant Taneja

'A thought-provoking look at the technology that is changing the world of business and the benefits, pitfalls, and challenges for society as a whole.' -- Kenneth I. Chenault, former chief executive officer, American Express CompanyThroughout the twentieth century, technology and economics drove a dominant logic: bigger was almost always better. It was smart to scale up - to take advantage of classic economies of scale.But in the unscaled economy, size and scale have become a liability. Today's most successful companies - Uber, Airbnb, Amazon, Salesforce - have defied the traditional 'economies of scale' approach by renting scale instead of spending vast amounts of money building it. And a new generation of upstarts is using artificial intelligence to automate tasks that once required expensive investment, enabling them to grow big without the bloat of giant organisations.In Unscaled, Hemant Taneja convincingly shows how the unscaled economy is remaking massive, deeply-rooted industries and opening up fantastic possibilities for entrepreneurs, imaginative companies and resourceful individuals. Beyond that, it can be the model for solving some of the world's greatest problems, including climate change and soaring healthcare costs, potentially reversing many of the ills brought on by mass industrialization.The unscale wave has only just started. To succeed in business today, companies, CEOs and leaders everywhere must unlearn what they have been taught - they must embrace an unscaled mindset.

You Can Do Anything

George Anders, George Anders
Authors:
George Anders, George Anders

In a tech-dominated world, the most needed degrees are the most surprising: the liberal arts Did you take the right classes in college? Will your major help you get the right job offers? For more than a decade, the national spotlight has focused on science and engineering as the only reliable choice for finding a successful post-grad career. Our destinies have been reduced to a caricature: learn to write computer code or end up behind a counter, pouring coffee. Quietly, though, a different path to success has been taking shape. In YOU CAN DO ANYTHING, George Anders explains the remarkable power of a liberal arts education - and the ways it can open the door to thousands of cutting-edge jobs every week.The key insight: curiosity, creativity, and empathy aren't unruly traits that must be reined in. You can be yourself, as an English major, and thrive in sales. You can segue from anthropology into the booming new field of user research; from classics into management consulting, and from philosophy into high-stakes investing. You can bring a humanist's grace to our rapidly evolving high-tech future. And if you know how to attack the job market, your opportunities will be vast.In this book, you will learn why resume-writing is fading in importance and why "telling your story" is taking its place. You will learn how to create jobs that don't exist yet, and to translate your campus achievements into a new style of expression that will make employers' eyes light up. You will discover why people who start in eccentric first jobs - and then make their own luck - so often race ahead of peers whose post-college hunt focuses only on security and starting pay. You will be ready for anything.
