Looptail is Bruce Poon Tip's extraordinary first-person account of his entrepreneurial instincts to start and develop G Adventures, the highly successful international travel adventure company - and along the way he reveals his unusual management secrets that not only keep his employees fully engaged and energized but also keep his customers extremely happy.His unique appraoch has worked in marvellous ways. Poon Tip has created an entirely new and refreshing approach to management. For example, there is no CEO at G Adventures - instead, every employee is a CEO, empowered to make instantaneous decisions to help clients on the spot. But while there's no CEO, there is a company Mayor, who take the pulse of corporate morale. There's no HR department - but there is a Talent Agency and company Culture Club.It hasn't always been easy to try to balance his desire for a socially responsible company along with the desire to generate profits. But thanks to Poon Tip's vision, G Adventures has floruished and has done its best to maintain its looptail approach. In short, it's been an extraordinary ride, and in many ways G Adventures is at the vanguard of what modern-day companies are beginning to look like.

Relax Into Wealth
By Alan Cohen
In RELAX INTO WEALTH, Alan Cohen probes the intrinsic link between passion, authenticity, and prosperity-and discovers the unexpected truth: nothing pays like being yourself. The result of the modern, information age has been depersonalisation; as the success of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series has illustrated, readers are becoming more and more concerned about how to lead a spiritually meaningful life while living in a material world. Cohen brings contemporary principles of wealth to life through true stories of the successful people he has encountered; from renowned celebrities to Midas-touch entrepreneurs, bus-drivers to burgeoning artists. In this uniquely people-driven finance book, Cohen dispenses with cut-throat business techniques and focuses on the heart, faith and vision needed to overcome fear, peer pressure and limiting beliefs in order to be successful. The book's stories, principles, ideas and exercises will help readers to see what is uniquely valuable in themselves and use inner talent as a springboard to riches.

Every day millions of people log onto Facebook to connect with friends. Each time we do this we are creating and reinforcing habits. We have routines for checking news from friends, looking up birthdays and family updates. When the interface of Facebook was changed in 2011 there was widespread condemnation. We are, in short, creatures of habit. Habits may help us to carry out our daily routine but they often cause us trouble, from unhealthy eating and smoking, to poor study skills and work routines. We've all experienced that endless frustration when we try to kick a bad habit. The frustration you have now will soon be over. Premier cognitive scientist Art Markman draws on all the latest scientific research to help you succeed in beating those bad habits. With the help of Smart Change, not only will you be able to understand just how habits are formed and maintained but you will be equipped with 5 essential tools to help you change your behaviour for the better and, what's more, influence the behaviour of others at work and at home.
