The Big Leap

by Gay Hendricks

Most of us believe that we will finally feel satisfied and content with our lives when we get the good news we have been waiting for, find a healthy relationship, or achieve one of our personal goals. However, this rarely happens. Good fortune is often followed by negative emotions that overtake us and result in destructive behaviors. "I don't deserve this," "this is too good to be true," or any number of harmful thought patterns prevent us from experiencing the joy and satisfaction we have earned. Sound familiar? This is what New York Times bestselling author Gay Hendricks calls the Upper Limit Problem, a negative emotional reaction that occurs when anything positive enters our lives. The Upper Limit Problem not only prevents happiness, but it actually stops us from achieving our goals. It is the ultimate life roadblock. In The Big Leap, Hendricks reveals a simple yet comprehensive program for overcoming this barrier to happiness and fulfillment, presented in a way that engages both the mind and heart. Working closely with more than one thousand extraordinary achievers in business and the arts--from rock stars to Fortune 500 executives--whose stories are featured in these pages, the book describes the four hidden fears that are at the root of the Upper Limit Problem. The Big Leap delivers a proven method for first identifying which of these four fears prevents us from reaching our personal upper limit, and then breaking through that limitation to achieve what Hendricks refers to as our Zone of Genius. Hendricks provides a clear path for achieving our true potential and attaining not only financial success but also success in love and life.

The Big Lie

by Anthony Bianco

Hewlett Packard is an American icon, the largest information technology company in the world. The bedrock of Silicon Valley, it employs more than 300,000 people, its market capitalization is in excess of $100 billion and its products are in almost every home in the country where there is a printer or computer. In 2003 the company began a transition from the family management style of its founders. It made a bold statement by hiring as its new CEO the most visible female business executive in America: Carly Fiorina. Less than two years later, the board fired her, amid accusations of imperiousness that had begun damagingly to leak into the business media. The board at that time included one of Silicon Valley's most flamboyant venture capitalists and owner of the largest and most expensive yacht in the world, and a former CIA asset who believed he personally channeled the values of the company's founders. Each had a long and complicated history with HP, and each believed he should determine the company's future. They ran up against a corporate governance expert whom they could not roll, and a new CEO whose loyalties on the board were entirely opaque. In this way, the stage was set for a rancorous feud that split the board into implacably distrusting factions. In the middle of the damaging schism, HP introduced the Big Lie. The lie was pinned on the chairman, who was receiving treatment for stage 4 ovarian cancer. And it sizzled through a largely unquestioning media. Anthony Bianco gets to heart of the ethical morass at HP that ended up damning the entire board that created it. Almost every American has an interest in how the country's greatest corporations are run, and the character of the people entrusted with them. The story of Hewlett-Packard reflects power struggles that shape corporate America and is an alarming morality tale for our times.

In a profound, funny, and beautifully rendered portrait of a beloved companion, bestselling novelist Dean Koontz remembers the golden retriever who changed his life.

The Big Loop

by Claire Huchet Bishop

From the Book Jacket: In France bicycle-racing is as popular as baseball is in America, and the "Big Loop," or Tour de France, takes the place of our World Series. For twenty-one days more than a hundred contestants race 3000 miles in a big loop around France. Festivity and tense excitement follow them wherever they go. This is the story of André Girard, who grew up in La Mouff, a poor section of Paris, and whose dreams of being a great bicycle-racer finally came true. The story begins when he is a schoolboy of twelve, when rivals tease him and say he will never be strong enough to be a professional racer, and when André himself doesn't know when he will ever have the money to buy a bicycle. But determination can overcome great obstacles, and in the end, due to his character and self-discipline, due to training and teamwork, André is the champion of the Tricolores. More than just thrilling sports reporting, this is the story of daily life in La Mouff; of André's school; of his friends Jack and Michel and Miquette; of the workers in the factory where he got a job; and of his hard-working Maman, who helped him in every way she could. It is a story of generosity and sacrifice, of loyalty and solidarity, and of "victory over oneself." Like all Claire Bishop's books, it is written with style and verve and with a deep feeling for humanity.

For the first time ever comes the inside story of Clarence "Big Man" Clemons--his life before, during and beyond the E-Street Band, including unbelievable, never-before-told adventures with Bruce Springsteen, the band, and an incredible cast of other famous characters recounted by himself and his best friend, television writer/ producer Don Reo. Here are just a few things you'll get from reading it: The truth behind the final hours of making Born To Run; The real story of how the E-Street Band got its name; What happened when Clarence and Ringo Starr were sitting in a hotel room and Clarence got the call that Bruce was breaking up the band; How Bruce and Clarence met that dark, stormy night at the Student Prince; The E-Street band's show at Sing-Sing prison where all of their equipment blows out right as they take the stage; The secret that Robert De Niro told Clarence and Bruce they had to keep for 25 years. But that's merely a glimpse. This is not your average rock book. It is something creative, something unique, something new. It is the story of E-Street. It is the story of stories. It is the story of the Big Man.
