BOOK EXCERPT:

You've heard of these groups - the secretive ones that only the crème de la crème are invited into, the ones outsiders speculate about for centuries - I'm the second in my family invited to attend, but to them, I'm fresh meat. New blood. New money, too. They think they'll elbow past me, that I'm here for their amusement, for them to walk all over, they'll find out soon enough that I'm not. I may look like one of them, with my designer bags and clothes straight from the Parisian runways, but I'm not. I'm here for answers, to take revenge for blood spilled on their centuries-old Persian rugs. I transferred here in search for answers about what happened to my older brother, who hightailed out of here, and my friend who seemingly disappeared into thin air. I certainly wasn't here for the attention of the star hockey player, regardless of how much he willed my eyes his way. I wasn't here for his scrutiny or his judgment or to read into his mysterious aura. I was here for the society, because only they held the answers I needed. That was, until I found out that in order to get those answers, I needed to go through him. He's saying if I want in, I have to play by their rules, follow their lead. It's a game I'm willing to play. I may be the second person I know of to be invited into their society, but I'll be the first to make it out intact. *This is a complete standalone novel*

BOOK EXCERPT:

The best organizations have the best talent. . . Financial incentives drive company performance. . . Firms must change or die. Popular axioms like these drive business decisions every day. Yet too much common management “wisdom” isn’t wise at all—but, instead, flawed knowledge based on “best practices” that are actually poor, incomplete, or outright obsolete. Worse, legions of managers use this dubious knowledge to make decisions that are hazardous to organizational health. This practical and candid book challenges leaders to commit to evidence-based management as a way of organizational life – and shows how to finally turn this common sense into common practice.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Discover the truth (and the falsehood) in the sound bites that rule so much of your life Today they're called sound bites, but they're older by far than sound bites, and they play a larger role in your life - those pithy, quotable phrases that capture in a few words the wisdom of the world: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." "Talk is cheap." "It doesn't matter what you believe, so long as you're sincere." "Love is blind." "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." In a few words - wisdom in shorthand - they speak truth won from generations of experience (and we know from our mothers that "experience is the best teacher"). They sayings survive because they work; which is why, in good times and bad, we use them to guide our actions and even to resolve intractable disputes ("Hey, let's just agree to disagree.") The problem is that most of them are not really true; they're half-truths. And when we rely on them uncritically (as we often do) they lead us out of one difficulty right smack into another. That's why philosopher Montague Brown, author of The One-Minute Philosopher, has here taken up the task of considering over 75 of these popular sayings, plucking from each the wisdom they contain while showing just where they steer you wrong. Presented here in an easy-to-read format are the common understandings of each saying, plus the additional insights you need to transform each from a dangerous cliche into a living truth that will improve your understanding and effectiveness in our world. But this is more than a book of aphorisms; taken altogether, it's a delightful mini-course in philosophy, studied by means of the perennial wisdom that's been embodied in these sayings over the years. Hey,why not try it? After all, "The proof is in the pudding!"
