'A great read and a fascinating insight into performance.' Sir Clive Woodward We all want to discover our hidden talents and make an impact with them. But how? Rasmus Ankersen, an ex-footballer and performance specialist, quit his job and for six intense months lived with the world's best athletes in an attempt to answer this question. Why have the best middle distance runners grown up in the same Ethiopian village? Why are the leading female golfers from South Korea? How did one athletic club in Kingston, Jamaica, succeed in producing so many world-class sprinters? Ankersen presents his surprising conclusions in seven lessons on how anyone - or any business, organisation or team - can defy the many misconceptions of high performance and learn to build their own gold mine of real talent.

But for Bob Woods, another struggle to introduce lean manufacturing quickly rehashes production battles that he's long since fought. And not even the senior Woods, son Mike, or friend Phil and his colleagues really grasp what's in store for them."--Cover.

Leviathans at the Gold Mine is an ethnographic account of the relationship between the Ipili, an indigenous group in Papua New Guinea, and the large international gold mine operating on their land. It was not until 1939 that Australian territorial patrols reached the Ipili. By 1990, the third largest gold mine on the planet was operating in their valley. Alex Golub examines how "the mine" and "the Ipili" were brought into being in relation to one another, and how certain individuals were authorized to speak for the mine and others to speak for the Ipili. Considering the relative success of the Ipili in their negotiations with a multinational corporation, Golub argues that a unique conjuncture of personal relationships and political circumstances created a propitious moment during which the dynamic and fluid nature of Ipili culture could be used to full advantage. As that moment faded away, social problems in the valley increased. The Ipili now struggle with the extreme social dislocation brought about by the massive influx of migrants and money into their valley.

The Log Cabin Mine was once the largest gold-producing mine in California. It was state-of-the-art and could both extract and process the gold from the quartz ore far beneath the surface. Now, all that remains of the once bountiful mine are decaying buildings, equipment ravaged by time and vandals, and memories. Gold Mine in the Sky chronicles the colorful history of the Log Cabin Mine, from its humble beginning in 1890, to its preWorld War II heyday, to the modern efforts to restore the mine and preserve its rich legacy. However, Gold Mine in the Sky offers more than simply a collection of names and dates; it tells the story of a man, his family, and the people of the small town of Lee Vining, whose lives were once, and will always be, inextricably linked to the Log Cabin Mine.

'Underground Manager,' he said. There was a long silence and he could hear the man breathing on the other end. 'Speak, man, what is it?' 'The whole bloody thing has come down,' said the voice. It was husky, rough with fear and dust. 'Where are you speaking from?' Rod asked. 'They're still in there,' said the voice. 'They're screaming in there. Under the rock. They're screaming.' Nothing drives men to danger like gold . . . Rod Ironsides is an honest man and expert manager of the successful Sonder Ditch gold mine and its hard-worked miners. But honesty and expertise count for little when faced with desperate bosses and a crew who'll break every rule to get their own illegal share of the precious metal. Under the command of the obsessive, meticulous Dr Steyner, Rod is forced into greater and greater risks. For if the mine goes down and takes the lives of the men with it, someone stands to make millions - but Rod will be the one who pays. A riveting thriller packed full of violence, disaster, and the irresistible magnetism of gold, from global bestseller Wilbur Smith
