Among the cases discussed: The CIA's top-secret program to control human behavior Operation Northwoods-the military plan to hijack airplanes and blame it on Cuban terrorists The discovery of a secret Afghan archive-information that never left the boardroom Potentially deadly healthcare cover-ups, including a dengue fever outbreak What the Department of Defense knows about our food supply-but is keeping mum Although these documents are now in the public domain, the powers that be would just as soon they stay under wraps.

A-HA! Performance

by Douglas Walker Stephen Sorkin

Praise for A-HA! Performance"Since I wrote Choice Theory many years ago, I have come to the conclusion that there is only one major human problem: we have yet to figure out how to get along well with each other. In this book, Walker supports this conclusion with humor, creativity, and great insight. Managers who both follow his suggestions and teach them to those they manage will be rewarded with a happy and profitable workplace. And do it at less cost than the company is spending now."--William Glasser, MD, President and founder,William Glasser Institute, and author of Choice Theory and Reality Therapy"If ever there was a title that perfectly matched the content of a book, this is it. I have never experienced more a-ha's from a book in my life. One of the biggest a-ha's is that you don't build a motivated workforce--you already have one! If you manage people--and especially if you aspire to truly lead people--then this book is required reading. Rock-solid ideas from a master on motivation."--Joe Calloway, author of Work Like You're Showing Off!"An amazingly practical and prodigiously useful resource to help create and bolster a world-class sales force, but also a blueprint for better living in general. An absolute mandatory read for all my employees, not to mention friends and family members. I don't know anyone who couldn't benefit from applying the A-HA model. The title might be more apropos if it were 'Holy cow! Where's this been my whole career?'"--Robert H. Fleet, Branch Manager, National Builder Division, Countrywide Home Loans"A-HA! Performance should be mandatory reading for every manager. Each chapter offers simple and compelling methods for building and managing a self-motivated workforce. The realistic examples presented throughout the book reinforce the steps in the A-HA model and provide the foundation for easy application to professional and personal situations."--Ann Owens, Vice President, Total Rewards Management, QUALCOMM"Avoiding a fight-or-flight reaction from an employee who needs coaching on improved performance or behavior changes requires the manager understand the employee's vested interest. Walker teaches the skills required to effectively create three wins: for the company, the employee, and the manager. It's a must-read for all leaders who want to be more proficient in getting needed performance changes from their employees by improving their own nurturing, coaching, or mentoring skills. I'm reading it for the third time and still gleaning more tips and insights. Even though it's constructed as a managerial self-help book, it's really an insightful, powerful textbook, and as such needs to be studied."--Ron Cook, National Accounts Manager, 3M

An accessible guide to the principles of success by one of the most respected and sought-after motivational speakers of our time. In the tradition of Og Mandino and Zig Ziglar, this inspirational guide uses a wide variety of subjects, from "Achievement" to "Worry," to bring clarity, information, and motivation to readers.

A former protégé of personal development pioneer Earl Nightingale, Proctor first built a wildly successful business career, and then an internationally successful speaking career, elaborating on the principles of Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich and other classic success and prosperity texts. Proctor's position in the business motivation community equals that of Stephen Covey or Og Mandino. But as is not the case with those masters, his books have never been available to the general public--until now! In The ABCs of Success--the first trade book ever published by this master of motivation and prosperity--Proctor goes beyond the simple laws of success and attraction, weighing in on sixty-seven different topics essential to all those who wish to make their dreams a reality, including persistence, winning, effectiveness, and vision. Organized in A-to-Z fashion and composed of brief essays that can be read over and over, The ABCs of Success is an essential resource for anyone who wants the combined wisdom of a century of success thinking in a single, accessible volume.From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Ability to Kill

by Eric Ambler

With The Ability to Kill, first published in 1963, renowned thriller writer Eric Ambler turns his attention to true crime--with an emphasis on murder. In five essays, he presents a sampling of famously intriguing (and often disturbing) cases of the last few hundred years, including 19th-century Edinburgh's Burke and Hare, who supplied the medical school with ill-gotten cadavers; Victorian London's infamous Jack the Ripper; the Frenchman Henri Desiré Landru, an early 20th century serial killer; and the Californian doctor Bernard Finch and his lover Carole Tregoff, who conspired to murder his wife in 1961. Rounding out the collection are a few pieces on lighter topics such as spies and how to spot them, and novelists in Hollywood. Though his subjects are sometimes grim, Ambler's deft touch makes this examination of homicide and other matters pure pleasure to read.

The Abolition of Man

by C. S. Lewis

Both astonishing and prophetic, The Abolition of Man remains one of C. S. Lewis's most controversial works. Lewis sets out to persuade his audience of the ongoing importance and relevance of universal objective values, such as courage and honor, and the foundational necessity of natural law.

National Review lists it as number seven on their "100 Best Nonfiction Books of the Twentieth Century."
