It’s personal! Finally readers can see new case studies of companies who have sustainable success by focusing on both great relationships and results. NBA leadership guru, Pat Williams, told me he loves this book because of its unique take on the type of leadership he also believes in, people-centered leadership. (Check out the Foreword by Pat!)
This gorgeous cookbook has intriguing recipes plus includes the best explanation I’ve seen on “clean eating.” I have a degree in Nutrition Science and am pleased that Staci’s suggestions are truly smart and healthy choices. I learned a lot about new products on the market that make this type of cooking so easy. Staci did a fantastic job taking photos of her ready-to-serve dishes and meals. Another great reason to get this book is that 100% of the proceeds goes to help special needs kids go to camp.
What a creative way to tell an important and compelling story–as a screenplay. One can easily imagine this tale playing on the Big Screen as a great movie. Angela (among her many talents) is an actress and I will not be surprised if FIREBURN has a role for her in the future. What better way to learn about and more deeply understand a significant past era and event than through historical fiction? While “Fireburn” happened on St. Croix, anyone interested in the Caribbean and/or Caribbean history will enjoy this book. We tend to hear a lot about post-slavery times in the US, but so much was going on in our neighboring islands, too.
Could a book be more timely?! This project is close to my heart. Probably you too know someone who has been affected by a sexual predator. We cannot turn back time and prevent that—but we certainly can take some simple, effective actions which will prevent future victimizations of both children and adults. You may think you are aware of today’s issues…this book will be eye-opening. Share this with teachers, parents, and everyone who wants abuse to stop.
Have you read a great sci-fi or fantasy novel lately? This is every bit as good as Clan of the Cave Bear or The Hunger Games, and has similarities to both. Len created an alternate world that is original, believable, and fascinating. Some like it because a young woman turns out to be not only a master archer, but a brave hero/role model. But the main character is her brother, Marz Kavoyy, and he is magnetic and addicting. I want to read a million more chapters in his life.
Based on the premise that people whom you lead will trust you based more on who you are as a person than on what you did or can do. A West Point and Northwestern grad, Bob taught leadership at the Academy and was in charge of Army Leadership Policy and Programs in the Pentagon. He graduated from “Harvard Advanced Management” and assists CEO’s in corporate-wide leadership development systems.
Retired veteran and purple heart recipient, Howard Myers, and his son, Chad Myers, a life coach, bring valuable life lessons from Howard’s journey from trauma (i.e., losing his eyesight while serving in Viet Nam) to triumph (recovering his strength and fortitude to achieve national sales awards in his career while raising a family) to readers who seek encouragement, hope, and inspiration to overcome any especially difficult challenge.
Endorsed by the Zig Ziglar organization, Dave’s breakthrough book has the most concise and easy-to-apply advice I’ve seen in a small business success book….”breakthrough book” because now, as a published author, he had an instant credibility boost and greatly expanded his professional speaking opportunities.
First in a series, A Thousand Stones is an historical fiction set in Europe during the Vietnam War era. There is a mystery to solve, a sabotage to uncover, militant war protestors to both love and hate…. and of course plenty of sex, drugs and rock-n-roll. Sanford’s characters are each so different — my favorite is Nate Cooper. We can look forward to more of Nate and friends in the second book of the series, The Blue Vienna (fall 2017).
Fast solutions to long-standing headaches, problems and desk disasters. Greg Vetter boiled down his 25 years of organizing, workflow, and productivity expertise into specific tips. Diagrams and step-by-step clarity provide everything needed to tackle any desk, office or entire company. Implementing even one of these will reduce feeling stuck and stressed.
A remarkable man’s collection of history, stories and facts culminate in this beautiful book. With over 200 full-color photos and images, this is a both a reference book and one you’ll want on your coffee table. Editions available in hardcover and paperback.
