    Author: GUILLEBEAU CHRIS

    InThe $100 Startup,Chris Guillebeau shows you how to lead of life of adventure, meaning and purpose &-andearn a good living.
     
    Still in his early thirties, Chris is on the verge of completing a tour of every country on earth &- he&’s already visited more than 175 nations &- and yet he&’s never held a &“real job&” or earned a regular paycheck.  Rather, he has a special genius for turning ideas into income, and he uses what he earns both to support his life of adventure and to give back. 
     
    There aremanyotherslike Chris &- those who&’ve found ways to opt out of traditional employment and create the time and income to pursue what they find meaningful.  Sometimes, achieving that perfect blend of passion and income doesn&’t depend on shelving what you currently do.  You can start small with your venture, committing little time or money, and wait to take the real plunge when youre sure its successful.
     
    In preparing to write this book, Chris identified 1,500 individuals who have built businesses earning $50,000 or more from a modest investment (in many cases, $100 or less), and from that group he&’s chosen to focus on the 50 most intriguing case studies.  In nearly all cases, people with no special skills discovered aspects of their personal passions that could be monetized, and were able to restructure their lives in ways that gave them greater freedom and fulfillment.
     
    Here, finally, distilled into one easy-to-use guide, are the most valuable lessons from those who&’ve learned how to turn what they do into a gateway to self-fulfillment.  It&’s all about finding the intersection between your &“expertise&” &- even if you don&’t consider it such -- and what other people will pay for.  You don&’t need an MBA, a business plan or even employees.  All you need is a product or service that springs from what you love to do anyway, people willing to pay, and a way to get paid.
     
    Not content to talk in generalities, Chris tells you exactly how many dollars his group of unexpected entrepreneurs required to get their projects up and running; what these individuals did in the first weeks and months to generate significant cash; some of the key mistakes they made along the way, and the crucial insights that made the business stick.  Among Chris&’s key principles: if you&’re good at one thing, you&’re probably good at something else; never teach a man to fish &-sellhim the fish instead; and in the battle between planning and action, action wins.
     
    In ancient times, people who were dissatisfied with their lives dreamed of finding magic lamps, buried treasure, or streets paved with gold.  Today, we know that it&’s up to us to change our lives.  And the best part is, if we change ourownlife, we can help others changetheirs.  This remarkable book will start you on your way.

    Author: GRATTON LYNDA & SCOTT ANDREW


    What will your 100-year life look like? Does the thought of working for 60 or 70 years fill you with dread? Or can you see the potential for a more stimulating future as a result of having so much extra time?


    Many of us have been raised on the traditional notion of a three-stage approach to our working lives: education, followed by work and then retirement. But this well-established pathway is already beginning to collapse. Life expectancy is rising, final-salary pensions are vanishing and increasing numbers of people are juggling multiple careers.


    Whether you are 18, 45 or 60, you will need to do things very differently from previous generations and learn to structure your life in completely new ways. The 100-Year Life is here to help. Drawing on the unique pairing of their experience in psychology and economics, Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott offer a broad-ranging analysis as well as a raft of solutions, showing how to rethink your finances, your education, your career and your relationships and create a fulfilling 100-year life.


    The 100-Year Life is a wake-up call that describes what to expect and considers the choices and options that you will face. It is also fundamentally a call to action for individuals, politicians, firms and governments and offers the clearest demonstration that a 100-year life can be a wonderful and inspiring one.

    The guide to shortening your execution cycle down from one year to twelve weeks


    Most organizations and individuals work in the context of annual goals and plans; a twelve-month execution cycle. Instead, The 12 Week Year avoids the pitfalls and low productivity of annualized thinking. This book redefines your "year" to be 12 weeks long. In 12 weeks, there just isn't enough time to get complacent, and urgency increases and intensifies. The 12 Week Year creates focus and clarity on what matters most and a sense of urgency to do it now. In the end more of the important stuff gets done and the impact on results is profound.

    • Explains how to leverage the power of a 12 week year to drive improved results in any area of your life
    • Offers a how-to book for both individuals and organizations seeking to improve their execution effectiveness
    • Authors are leading experts on execution and implementation

    Turn your organization's idea of a year on its head, and speed your journey to success.

    Author: STARKMAN DEREK ED


    The Best Business Writing 2012 reflects the year's most intriguing reporting and rigorous investigative journalism at a time of dramatic economic crisis and upheaval. Covering bad business behavior, the intersection of politics and money, and big-picture analysis, the volume fills a longstanding gap for those seeking diverse, enriching, and lively perspectives on the business world.


    This year's selections include Rolling Stone's profile of Don Blankenship and his brutal tenure as CEO of Massey Energy; the Guardian's groundbreaking and courageous investigation into the News of the World phone-hacking scandal and its indictment of the Rupert Murdoch media empire; and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's poignant account of the fatal consequences of federal deregulation in health and medicine. Two searing pieces on the ongoing mortgage scandal, one a hard look at the role of Merrill Lynch in inflating the housing bubble for its own gain and so bringing about its own destruction, and the other a detailed breakdown of Countrywide's malfeasance, provide critical context for the financial crisis; while articles on recoveries in Norway, Germany, and elsewhere examine the global recession. Additional articles tackle bank fees and bailouts, the Buffett Rule, the influence of the corporate lobby, the legacy of Alan Greenspan, and the future of the American auto industry, and provide intimate looks behind the scenes of such companies as Pfizer, Google, and IKEA.


    Contributors include Warren Buffett, Paul Krugman, Gretchen Morgenson, Steve Pearlstein, James B. Stewart, Matt Taibbi, and Martin Wolf.

    Title: 27 Challenges Managers Face: Step-by-step Solutions to (nearly) All of Your Management Problems
    Author: TULGAN BRUCE

    For more than twenty years, management expert Bruce Tulgan has been asking," "What are the most difficult challenges you face when it comes to managing people?""

    Regardless of industry or job title, managers cite the same core issues--27 recurring challenges: the superstar whom the manager is afraid of losing, the slacker whom the manager cannot figure out how to motivate, the one with an attitude problem, and the two who cannot get along, to name just a few.

    It turns out that when things are going wrong in a management relationship, the common denominator is almost always unstructured, low substance, hit-or-miss communication.

    The real problem is that most managers are "managing on autopilot" without even realizing it--until something goes wrong. And if you are managing on autopilot, then something almost always does.

    "The 27 Challenges Managers Face" shows exactly how to break the vicious cycle and gain control of management relationships. No matter what the issue, Tulgan shows that the fundamentals are all you need. The very best managers hold ongoing one-on-one conversations that make expectations clear, track performance, offer feedback, and hold people accountable.

    For every workplace problem--even the most awkward and difficult--"The 27 Challenges Managers Face" shows how to tailor conversations to solve situations familiar to every manager.

    Title: 3rd Alternative Solving Lifes Most Difficult Problems
    Author: COVEY STEPHEN R

    From the multimillion-copy bestselling author ofThe 7 Habits of Highly Effective People-hailed as the #1 Most Influential Business Book of the Twentieth Century-The 3rd Alternativeintroduces a breakthrough approach to conflict resolution and creative problem solving. One ofTimemagazine’s 25 most influential Americans, Dr. Stephen R. Covey has helped millions transform their lives. InThe 3rd Alternative, Covey turns his formidable insight to a powerful new way to resolve professional and personal difficulties and create solutions to great challenges in organizations and society.
    In any conflict, the 1st Alternative is my way and the 2nd Alternative is your way. The fight usually boils down to a question of whose way is better. There are many methods of “conflict resolution,” but most involve compromise, a low-level accommodation that stops the fight without breaking through to amazing new results.The 3rd Alternativeis about more than just an armistice-it’s about creating a new and improved reality. A departure from the usual approaches to conflict resolution, negotiation, and innovation, this book reveals a new way of thinking that will be embraced not only by the many fans who have flocked to Covey’s prior books, but also by anyone who is seeking solutions in their professional or personal lives.


    The 3rd Alternativetranscends traditional solutions to conflict by forging a path toward a third option, a 3rd Alternative that movesbeyondyour way or my way to a higher and better way-one that allows both parties to emerge from debate or even heated conflict in a far better place than either had envisioned. With the 3rd Alternative,nobodyhas to give up anything, andeveryonewins.


    To a world of escalating strife and contention, 3rd Alternative thinkers like those Covey profiles here bring creative solutions, peace, and healing. Through key examples and stories from his work as a consultant, Covey demonstrates the power of 3rd Alternative thinking. His wide-ranging examples include: a Canadian metropolitan police force that transformed a crime-plagued community by abandoning their “them vs. us” mentality and changing the whole definition of police work; a father who rescued his troubled daughter from years of despair and near suicide in one surprising evening; a judge who brought a quick, peaceful end to one of the biggest environmental lawsuits in American history without setting foot in a courtroom; the principal of a high school for the children of migrant workers who raised their graduation rate from a dismal 30 percent to 90 percent and tripled their basic skill levels; a handful of little-known people who are quietly finding new ways to bring peace to the Middle East; and many others. These various groups and individuals offer living examples of how to create new and better results instead of escalating conflict, as well as how to build strong relationships with diverse people based on an attitude of winning together.


    Beyond conflict and compromise,The 3rd Alternativeunveils a radical, creative new way of thinking. It is a groundbreaking but practical work that demonstrates why 3rd Alternative thinking represents the supreme opportunity of our time.

    Title: 40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World
    Author: BUFFETT HOWARD G

    With a foreword by Warren Buffett, "40 Chances "is an "inspiring manifesto...both an informative guidebook and a catalyst for igniting real changes" ("Booklist") in the struggle against world hunger.
    If someone granted you $3 billion to accomplish something great in the world, what would you do? In 2006, legendary investor Warren Buffett posed this challenge to his son Howard G. Buffett. Howard set out to help the most vulnerable people on earth--nearly a billion individuals who lack basic food security. And Howard gave himself a deadline: forty years to put the resources to work on this challenge.
    "40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World" captures Howard's journey. Beginning with his love for farming, we join him around the world as he seeks out new approaches to ease the suffering of so many. Each of the forty stories here provides a compelling look at the lessons Howard learned, ranging from his own backyard to some of the most difficult and dangerous places on Earth. But this message goes beyond the pages of this book, it's also a mindset: a way of thinking that speaks to every person wanting to make a difference. It's about reasons to hope and actions we can take. "40 Chances" "recounts Howard's personal and professional experiences in surprisingly candid and colorful fashion...successfully blending personal stories with a tough look at the struggle to fight domestic food scarcity and world hunger...A satisfying read" ("Publishers Weekly") that provides inspiration to transform each of our limited chances into opportunities to change the world.
