BOOK EXCERPT:

Fifteen years after its first publication, The Second Shift remains just as important and relevant today as it did then. As the majority of women entered the workforce, sociologist and Berkeley professor Arlie Hochschild was one of the first to talk about what really happens in dual-career households. Many people were amazed to find that women still did the majority of childcare and housework even though they also worked outside the home. Now, in this updated edition with a new introduction from the author, we discover how much things have, or have not, changed for women today.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Jack Allen, an aging, lonely widower with grown children, had been driving a truck long-haul for decades. He figured his days of doing anything more significant than delivering freight were far behind him, and those days were getting shorter all the time. Jack's troubled past had been successfully buried for decades. Why was it getting dredged up now? Little did he know that his glory days might not be over after all, and there might be a whole new adventure waiting for him right up the road a stretch if he can wrestle with his troubled past. Ten-year-old Ben had never known what a "normal" life was like, and it was not about to get normal any time soon. Kids like Ben didn't get many happy endings, and he sure hasn't had a happy beginning, but it could always get better. Some folks just don't get a fair shot at life. Maybe this time? Two defeated and unlikely people experience a bumpy road full of challenges and redemption. Can a pair of hard lives manage to coexist together, and even help each other out? Can eighty thousand pound of diesel-powered conflict and trouble headed for a dead-end sign at seventy miles per hour get turned around in time?

BOOK EXCERPT:

The dynamic, collaborative management model that saved a U.S. manufacturing city When car-making giant General Motors decided to close its plant in Lansing, Michigan, in 1996, one person—the city’s newly elected mayor—stood up and said “no.” Initially, it was the cry of a man in the wilderness. Not once in its century-long history had GM reversed a decision to close a plant. But Mayor David Hollister quietly went to work building the Lansing Works! Keep GM! movement and succeeded in defying all the odds. Lansing remains GM’s Oldsmobile headquarters. Hollister’s collaborative problem-solving approach—the Second Shift model—succeeded in bringing together state and regional politicians, economic developers, private sector firms, labor unions, educators, and residents of the region. Powerful, persuasive, and well-organized, this coalition implemented a strategic, six-dimensional framework to achieve the seemingly impossible: • Identifying: Name the challenge and its impact • Partnering: Develop meaningful relationships • Building: Construct your strategy as you go • Solving: Engage in constant problem solving • Celebrating: Mark successful milestones • Persevering: Adapt and endure The Lansing Works! Keep GM! movement was a victory of people over bureaucracy, of a can-do attitude over cynicism—a story rarely told in today’s complex, technological, and often dehumanizing world of large business and out-of-control government. And the best part was that, in the end, both sides came away winners. It’s proof positive that when the public and private sectors work together as equal partners, amazing things can happen. One of the great business sagas of modern times, Second Shift provides a proven, practical design for problem solving that anyone can apply in any business, large or small.
