A clever story of greed and goodness, and the art of finding the in-between, from two-time Caldecott Medalist Chris Raschka, creator of the New York Times bestselling A Ball for Daisy.

Give and Take: Why Helping Others Drives Our Success by Adam Grant: Conversation Starters Adam Grant, the bestselling author of Originals, gives us a revolutionary look at the reasons why our interactions with others lead to success.

The author explains what forces are behind the success of some people, and the failure of others.

A Success Best Book of 2015 Business psychologist Tony Crabbe outlines a unique three-step approach to combating one of the modern life's great problems: being too busy. BUSY is divided into four digestible sections-Mastery, Differentiation, and Engagement-that will teach readers how to switch from managing time to managing attention, how to transition toward a career strategy that doesn't hinge on productivity, how to think differently about success by re-engaging with what matters, and how to create the impetus, energy, and clarity to put all these changes into effect. Crabbe draws on entertaining psychological studies to show why we're getting it wrong at the moment and to develop a fresh new approach to taking back one's life from chaotic outside forces. Rarely has a book been more timely in both its scope and in its immediate impact.

A World Gone Social offers an eye-opening look at fundamental and powerful changes the social collaboration era has set in motion: Customers now have the power--just watch what happens as more realize it! With increased transparency, businesses must be more ethical--no more pretending Command-and-control leadership is now so inefficient, it is a liability Nimble and small is the new competitive advantage--few corporations are capable of the agility required by evolving marketplaces Recruiting is now a two-way proposition, with job seekers able to peer behind the corporate curtain Relationship and community-building is how customers and brand ambassadors are won--and retained Engagement--with partners, employees, and customers--is not a luxury; it is a requirement. Each chapter provides compelling stories and concrete examples of companies demonstrating enlightened business practices and doing Social right--and some that are not--and the lessons to be learned from their experiences. Finally, readers will discover how to objectively assess the fit ness of their own company's culture and social they may successfully transition from a 20th- to a 21st-century "social" organization.
