Image For Aisles Have Eyes by Jospeh Turow

Aisles Have Eyes by Jospeh Turow

Item Description
A revealing and surprising look at the ways that aggressive consumer advertising and tracking, already pervasive online, are coming to a retail store near you By one expert's prediction, within twenty years half of Americans will have body implants that tell retailers how they feel about specific products as they browse their local stores. The notion may be outlandish, but it reflects executives' drive to understand shoppers in the aisles with the same obsessive detail that they track us online. In fact, a hidden surveillance revolution is already taking place inside brick-and-mortar stores, where Americans still do most of their buying. Drawing on his interviews with retail executives, analysis of trade publications, and experiences at insider industry meetings, advertising and digital studies expert Joseph Turow pulls back the curtain on these trends, showing how a new hyper-competitive generation of merchants--including Macy's, Target, and Walmart--is already using data mining, in-store tracking, and predictive analytics to change the way we buy, undermine our privacy, and define our reputations. Eye-opening and timely, Turow's book is essential reading to understand the future of shopping. --Books in Print

Image For Balancing Green by Yossi Sheffi

Balancing Green by Yossi Sheffi

Item Description
An expert on business strategy offers a pragmatic take on how businesses of all sizes balance the competing demands of profitability and employment with sustainability. The demands and stresses on companies only grow as executives face a multitude of competing business goals. Their stakeholders are interested in corporate profits, jobs, business growth, and environmental sustainability. In this book, business strategy expert Yossi Sheffi offers a pragmatic take on how businesses of all sizes -- from Coca Cola and Siemens to Dr. Bronner's Magical Soaps and Patagonia -- navigate these competing goals. Drawing on extensive interviews with more than 250 executives, Sheffi examines the challenges, solutions, and implications of balancing traditional business goals with sustainability. Sheffi, author of the widely read The Resilient Enterprise, argues that business executives' personal opinions on environmental sustainability are irrelevant. The business merits of environmental sustainability are based on the fact that even the most ardent climate change skeptics in the C-suite face natural resource costs, public relations problems, regulatory burdens, and a green consumer segment. Sheffi presents three basic business rationales for corporate sustainability efforts: cutting costs, reducing risk, and achieving growth. For companies, sustainability is not a simple case of "profits versus planet" but is instead a more subtle issue of (some) people versus (other) people -- those looking for jobs and inexpensive goods versus others who seek a pristine environment. This book aims to help companies satisfy these conflicting motivations for both economic growth and environmental sustainability. --Books in Print

Shy. Leader. Wife. Mother. We live in a world of categories -- labels designed to tell the world, and ourselves, who we are and ought to be.

In Beyond the Label, Maureen Chiquet charts her unlikely path from literature major to global chief executive. Sharing the inklings, risks and (re)defining moments that have shaped her exemplary career, Chiquet seeks to inspire a new generation of women, liberal arts grads, and unconventional thinkers to cultivate a way of living and leading that is all their own.Through vivid storytelling and provocative insights, Chiquet guides readers to consider the pressing questions and inherent paradoxes of creating a successful, fulfilling life in today's increasingly complex and competitive world."Why should we separate art from business, feelings from logic, intuition from judgment?" Chiquet poses. "Who decided you can't be determined and flexible, introspective and attuned, mother and top executive? And where does it state standing unflinchingly in your vulnerability, embracing your femininity, won't make you stronger?"Wise, inspiring, and deeply felt, Beyond the Label is for anyone who longs for a life without limits on who she is or who she will become. --Books in Print

Image For Extraordinary Influence by Tim Irwin

Extraordinary Influence by Tim Irwin

Item Description
The age-old question for every leader how do we bring out the best in those we lead? Anyone who has run a company, raised a family, led an army, or coached a team struggles to find the key to help others excel and realize their potential. It is surprising how often we resort to criticism vs. an approach that actually results in a better worker and a better person. What if we could speak Words of Life that transform those under our influence and ignite fires of intrinsic motivation? What if those we lead found great purpose in what they do and worked at their jobs with all their heart? Isnt that what leaders, parents, and teachers really want? Ultimately, dont we hope to foster intrinsic motivation so that the individuals we lead become better employees, better students, or better athletes. Recent discoveries of brain science and the wisdom of top CEOs that Dr. Tim Irwin interviewed for this book give us the answers weve long sought. In most organizations, the methods used to provide feedback to employees such as performance appraisals or multi-rater feedback systems, in fact, often accomplish the exact opposite of what we intend. We inadvertently speak Words of Death. Brain science tells us that these methods tend to engage a natural "negativity bias," that is hardwired in us all. Science in recent years discovered that affirmation sets in motion huge positive changes in the brain. It releases certain neuro chemicals associated with well-being and higher performance. Amazingly, criticism creates just the opposite neural reaction. The most primitive part of the brain goes into hyper defense mode, compromising our performance, torpedoing our motivation, and limiting access to our higher-order strengths. How do we redirect employees who are out-of-line without engaging our natural "negativity bias?" Leaders must forever ban the term, "Constructive Criticism." Brain science tells us that we must establish a connection between the employees work and his or her aspirations. This book calls for a new approach to align workers with an organizations mission, strategy, and goals, called "Alliance Feedback." --Books in Print

Image For Feminist Fight Club by Jessica Bennett

Feminist Fight Club by Jessica Bennett

Item Description
It was a fight club--but without the fighting and without the men. Every month, the women would huddle in a friend's apartment to share sexist job frustrations and trade tips on how best to tackle them. Once upon a time, you might have called it a consciousness-raising group. But the problems of today's working world are more subtle, less pronounced, harder to identify--and harder to prove--than those of our foremothers. These women weren't just there to vent. They needed battle tactics. And so the Feminist Fight Club was born. In Feminist Fight Club, acclaimed journalist Jessica Bennett blends the personal stories of her real-life fight club with research, statistics, and no-bullsh*t advice for how to combat today's sexism (and come out the other side). Part manual, part manifesto, Bennett offers a new vocabulary for the sexist archetypes women encounter every day--such as the Manterrupter, who talks over female colleagues in meetings; or the Bropropriator, who appropriates their ideas--as well as the self-sabotaging behavior women sometimes exhibit themselves. With original illustrations and fascinating historical research as well as a straightforward assessment of the gender gap that continues to plague the American workforce, Feminist Fight Club offers practical strategies, stealthy hacks, and much-needed camaraderie for women battling their way through the modern workplace. --Books in Print

Hiding in the Bathroom by Morra Aarons-Mele

Item Description
A GUIDE FOR ALL THE PEOPLE WHO PREFER THOSE MOMENTS OF HIDING IN THE BATHROOM TO CONSTANTLY CLIMBING THE LADDER OR WORKING THE ROOM We've been told that being successful looks a certain way. It's hustling and working 24/7. It's always being on. It's "getting out there." It's constantly putting your work first at all costs--everything else can wait. Conventional wisdom tells us that this is the only way to achieve happiness and success at the highest levels of the biggest organizations and corporations. But what if you were told that just wasn't true? In Hiding in the Bathroom, Morra Aarons-Mele--self-proclaimed hermit entrepreneur whose clients have included the Malala Fund and three U.S. presidential campaigns--disagrees with the notion that there's only one successful "type": the intense, super social, sleep-deprived mover and shaker. Instead, using her shorthand for achieving a more enjoyable and balanced work life, she paves a path for ambitious people who struggle with introversion, anxiety, or just crave a little more control over their lives. Filled with practiced advice, easy-to-follow exercises, proven tools, and real stories collected from personal experience and more than one hundred twenty interviews of successful people--entrepreneurs, academics, and those just beginning their careers--Hiding in the Bathroom empowers professionals of all ages and levels to take control of the way they work. Practical and thoughtful, Hiding in the Bathroom is a must-have handbook for building a prosperous career and a happy life--on your own terms. --Books in Print

Image For History of Mortgage Banking in the West by Michael Rosser

History of Mortgage Banking in the West by Michael Rosser

Item Description
Part economic history, part public history, A History of Mortgage Banking in the West is an insider's account of how the mortgage banking sector worked over the last 150 years, including analysis of the causes of the 2007 mortgage crisis. Beginning with the land and railroad development acts that encouraged settlement in the west, E. Michael Rosser and Diane M. Sanders trace the laws, institutions, and individuals that contributed to the economic growth of the region.Using Colorado and the west as a case study for the nation's economic and property development as a whole since the late nineteenth century, Rosser and Sanders explain how farm mortgages and agricultural lending steadily gave way to urban development and housing mortgages, all while the large mortgage and investment firms financed the development of some of the state's most important water resources and railroad networks. Rosser uses his personal experience as a lifelong practitioner and educator of mortgage banking, along with a plethora of primary sources, academic archives, and industry publications, to analyze the causes of economic booms and busts as they relate to real estate and development.Rosser's professional acumen combined with Sanders's research experience makes A History of Mortgage Banking in the West a rich and nuanced account of the region's most significant economic events. It will be an important work for scholars and practitioners in regional and financial history, mortgage market practice and development, government housing and mortgage policy, and financial stability and of great significance to anyone curious about the role of the federal government in national housing policy and the inherent risk in mortgages. --Books in Print

Image For I Love Capitalism by Ken Langone

I Love Capitalism by Ken Langone

Item Description
New York Times Bestseller Iconoclastic entrepreneur and New York legend Ken Langone tells the compelling story of how a poor boy from Long Island became one of America's most successful businessmen. Ken Langone has seen it all on his way to a net worth beyond his wildest dreams. A pillar of corporate America for decades, he's a co-founder of Home Depot, a former director of the New York Stock Exchange, and a world-class philanthropist (including $200 million for NYU's Langone Health). In this memoir he finally tells the story of his unlikely rise and controversial career. It's also a passionate defense of the American Dream -- of preserving a country in which any hungry kid can reach the maximum potential of his or her talents and work ethic. In a series of fascinating stories, Langone shows how he struggled to get an education, break into Wall Street, and scramble for an MBA at night while competing with privileged competitors by day. He shares how he learned how to evaluate what a business is worth and apply his street smarts to 8-figure and 9-figure deals . And he's not shy about discussing, for the first time, his epic legal and PR battle with former NY Governor Eliot Spitzer. His ultimate theme is that free enterprise is the key to giving everyone a leg up. As he writes: This book is my love song to capitalism. Capitalism works! And I'm living proof -- it works for everybody. Absolutely anybody is entitled to dream big, and absolutely everybody should dream big. I did. Show me where the silver spoon was in my mouth. I've got to argue profoundly and passionately: I'm the American Dream. --Books in Print

Item Description
**Clearance Item: Offer good while supplies last***"The extent of the arbitrary authority of owners and managers over employees is surprisingly neglected by political thinkers, given how much time we spend at work and how little in the polling booth. Elizabeth Anderson provides a much-needed, important, and compelling account of this overlooked subject. Private Government deserves to be widely read and discussed."--Alan Ryan, professor emeritus, University of Oxford "This is a very exciting and extremely important book that presents a major challenge to philosophers and social scientists to think about the modern workplace as a form of private government. It is strange that, in a liberal society, there is so little discussion of the relations of power that characterize the workplace. Anderson deftly brings together history, economic theory, and philosophy to have just that conversation. This book unsettles some very deep, unjustifiable assumptions we have about the nature and organization of work today."--Alexander Gourevitch, Brown University --Books in Print
