Fact #1: Forty years after the feminist revolution, fewer than 2 percent of Fortune 1000 CEOs are women. Fact #2: The playing field is not level. Fact #3: You need to get over this. Chairman of the flagship office of the largest advertising agency network in the world, Nina DiSesa is a master communicator, a ceiling crasher, and a big-time realist. In Seducing the Boys Club, DiSesa shows you how S&M-seduction and manipulation-is the secret to winning over (and surpassing) the big guys. She asserts that women need to meld their "female" characteristics (nurturing, compassion, intuition) with "male" traits (decisiveness, focus, confidence, humor) to expand their professional horizons. DiSesa also shares her practical, outrageous, and even controversial maxims for making it, including * Learn to appreciate men. Men like women who like them. * Remember that women are biologically wired to succeed. * If you want to make a name for yourself, find a mess and fix it. A secure and comfortable job only holds you back. * Act brave and you will look brave. * Screw the rules. Make up your own. Whether dead-on funny or deadly serious, DiSesa is always on her game, always on message, and absolutely on target as she arms women (men, too!) with the can-do confidence and no-compromises attitude they need to climb as high as their ambition can carry them-while keeping their standards impeccable and their integrity intact.

THE END Perhaps an unusual way to start a book - but this is an "unusual" book. It's about you, your family, your future, and how you can get more out of all of them by giving more to each of them. We believe that this is "the end," or at least the beginning of the end, of negative thinking, negative action, and negative reaction; the end of defeatism and despondency; the end of settling for less than you deserve to have and are capable of obtaining; the end of being influenced by little people, with little minds thinking little thoughts about the trivia that is the stock and trade of Mr. & Mrs. Mediocrity. In short, it is the end for you of the world's most deadly disease - "Hardening of the Attitudes." Welcome to The Richer Life.
Insights-like Darwin's understanding of the way evolution actually works, and Watson and Crick's breakthrough discoveries about the structure of DNA-can change the world. We also need insights into the everyday things that frustrate and confuse us so that we can more effectively solve problems and get things done. Yet we know very little about when, why, or how insights are formed-or what blocks them. In Seeing What Others Don't, renowned cognitive psychologist Gary Klein unravels the mystery.Klein is a keen observer of people in their natural settings-scientists, businesspeople, firefighters, police officers, soldiers, family members, friends, himself-and uses a marvelous variety of stories to illuminate his research into what insights are and how they happen. What, for example, enabled Harry Markopolos to put the finger on Bernie Madoff? How did Dr. Michael Gottlieb make the connections between different patients that allowed him to publish the first announcement of the AIDS epidemic? What did Admiral Yamamoto see (and what did the Americans miss) in a 1940 British attack on the Italian fleet that enabled him to develop the strategy of attack at Pearl Harbor? How did a "smokejumper" see that setting another fire would save his life, while those who ignored his insight perished? How did Martin Chalfie come up with a million-dollar idea (and a Nobel Prize) for a natural flashlight that enabled researchers to look inside living organisms to watch biological processes in action?Klein also dissects impediments to insight, such as when organizations claim to value employee creativity and to encourage breakthroughs but in reality block disruptive ideas and prioritize avoidance of mistakes. Or when information technology systems are "dumb by design" and block potential discoveries. Both scientifically sophisticated and fun to read, Seeing What Others Don't shows that insight is not just a "eureka!" moment but a whole new way of understanding.
In this inspiring work, the author of "Awareness" provides his unique insight into the "Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius," one of the great masterpieces of Christian spirituality.

This book contains many useful hints for making our lives easier. I can vouch for the effectiveness of this one: To get rid of ants, wipe down counters and other surfaces with vinegar. It will take four or five days to discourage the ants. Broken glass? "To sweep up broken glass, place a damp paper towel over the debris first. The tiny shattered pieces will cling to the paper and all can be easily swept up. Works with pet hair, too." Do you have "big terry cloth oven mitts? Great for wiping splatters off kitchen walls, the terry cloth loops scrub right into the depressions in textured paint. They also scrub vinyl floors in a flash --a huge area wipes clean in one swipe. In addition, the mitts slurp up spills, do dusting, and, if slightly dampened, pick up pet hairs from upholstery." Some items keep better in the refrigerator if turned upsidedown--jelly, relish, pickles. Be sure lids are tight. When finished, throw the mitts into the washer-- they come out clean and ready for

"The Self-Assessment Library 2.0 has been created to help you to learn more about yourself so that you might become "enlightened." It draws on numerous instruments that have been developed by behavioral researchers that tap into your skills, abilities, and interests. This new edition has eight instruments that were not included in the first version; and I deleted four from the first edition that user feedback indicated were not very effective. Additionally, in response to user comments, the interpretation sections have been expanded. They now describe underlying concepts in greater detail and provide more elaborated discussions of what results mean. Here's a summary of changes you'll find in this second edition: - Four tests have been deleted and eight new ones added. - A matrix for relating tests to management and OB topics has been added. - Tests which assume current working experience are now identified. - Approximate quantitative cut-off scores, when not included by the tests' authors, have been provided to help students better understand the meaning of their results. - Where appropriate, remedial actions or references have been suggested to help students improve areas of weakness. "This Library of behavioral questionnaires has been designed to supplement a wide range of college courses. These include: Introduction to Management, Organizational Behavior, Supervision, Interpersonal Skills, Introduction to Business, Careers in Business, Industrial and Organizational Psychology, and Social Psychology. It works best when questionnaires are completed separately (rather than doing the whole set at one time) and when they're completed in sync with text readings on complementary topics."
