Summary : You've heard of these groups - the secretive ones that only the crème de la crème are invited into, the ones outsiders speculate about for centuries - I'm the second in my family invited to attend, but to them, I'm fresh meat. New blood. New money, too. They think they'll elbow past me, that I'm here for their amusement, for them to walk all over, they'll find out soon enough that I'm not. I may look like one of them, with my designer bags and clothes straight from the Parisian runways, but I'm not. I'm here for answers, to take revenge for blood spilled on their centuries-old Persian rugs. I transferred here in search for answers about what happened to my older brother, who hightailed out of here, and my friend who seemingly disappeared into thin air. I certainly wasn't here for the attention of the star hockey player, regardless of how much he willed my eyes his way. I wasn't here for his scrutiny or his judgment or to read into his mysterious aura. I was here for the society, because only they held the answers I needed. That was, until I found out that in order to get those answers, I needed to go through him. He's saying if I want in, I have to play by their rules, follow their lead. It's a game I'm willing to play. I may be the second person I know of to be invited into their society, but I'll be the first to make it out intact. *This is a complete standalone novel*

Summary : The best organizations have the best talent. . . Financial incentives drive company performance. . . Firms must change or die. Popular axioms like these drive business decisions every day. Yet too much common management “wisdom” isn’t wise at all—but, instead, flawed knowledge based on “best practices” that are actually poor, incomplete, or outright obsolete. Worse, legions of managers use this dubious knowledge to make decisions that are hazardous to organizational health. This practical and candid book challenges leaders to commit to evidence-based management as a way of organizational life – and shows how to finally turn this common sense into common practice.

Summary : This book presents several chapters written by this author using the pseudonym Ole Ed. The impetus for my writing these stories was to reduce the burden that I experienced from a very hectic air travel schedule that I endured before finally retiring from the Fortune 5 corporation that I was employed by for thirty years! I became bored from picking up the same ole magazines on airplanes and reading the same ole stuff. I hope that these stories will provide you with a little bit of light, pleasurable reading during your travels to places afar that I probably no longer yearn to go to. All the stories presented in this book are based partially on my actual life experiences, hence, the title Half-Truths . . . I have tried to word the title of each story in a way that will not give you a hint of how that story will end. Have fun, and guess your heart out!

Summary : Discover the truth (and the falsehood) in the sound bites that rule so much of your life Today they're called sound bites, but they're older by far than sound bites, and they play a larger role in your life - those pithy, quotable phrases that capture in a few words the wisdom of the world: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." "Talk is cheap." "It doesn't matter what you believe, so long as you're sincere." "Love is blind." "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." In a few words - wisdom in shorthand - they speak truth won from generations of experience (and we know from our mothers that "experience is the best teacher"). They sayings survive because they work; which is why, in good times and bad, we use them to guide our actions and even to resolve intractable disputes ("Hey, let's just agree to disagree.") The problem is that most of them are not really true; they're half-truths. And when we rely on them uncritically (as we often do) they lead us out of one difficulty right smack into another. That's why philosopher Montague Brown, author of The One-Minute Philosopher, has here taken up the task of considering over 75 of these popular sayings, plucking from each the wisdom they contain while showing just where they steer you wrong. Presented here in an easy-to-read format are the common understandings of each saying, plus the additional insights you need to transform each from a dangerous cliche into a living truth that will improve your understanding and effectiveness in our world. But this is more than a book of aphorisms; taken altogether, it's a delightful mini-course in philosophy, studied by means of the perennial wisdom that's been embodied in these sayings over the years. Hey,why not try it? After all, "The proof is in the pudding!"

Summary : There are many types of lies, but perhaps the most dangerous and deceptive of all is the half-truth. A manipulative distortion of truth, it sounds convincing but is destructively distant from what is true. Flip Michaels tackles five half-truths that are commonly used as arguments against the validity of the Bible, Christianity, God, Christ and faith. He clearly and engagingly unveils the whole truth and explains why understanding the whole meaning is crucial. These five truths are: The Bible was written by men and inspired by God. All religions are the same, except Christianity. God is love and holy, holy, holy. Jesus is truly a man and truly God. Our good deeds matter when preceded by faith. A useful evangelistic tool, a helpful clarification for new believers or a valuable reminder for those who have been believers for a long time.

Summary : This book examines the way in which Middle Eastern women were regarded by European travellers of the late-19th and early-20th centuries. Much of the writing is concerned with the secrets of the harem. There was much romantic speculation about the lives of the women, but it was also felt that their lot was to be pitied when compared to that of European women. The author of this book argues that such an opinion was based on a hypocritical set of assumptions about European women.

Summary : 'If I'm going to tell the story of a life, my life, then I need to tell it warts and all. If the tale is too saccharine sweet then what can the reader take away from it? What do they learn about you? I've written everything down. The shit, the death, fun, naughtiness, addiction, laughter, laughter, laughter, some tears and lots of love and happiness. That to me is a better reflection of a human's life.' Nick's family life was difficult, blighted by alcoholism, illness and sudden misfortune meaning they lost everything overnight. He left school early and drifted from job to job dogged by his own personal demons. It's something of a miracle that Nick survived and even more that he would achieve such success with his writing, acting and comedy. In Truths, Half Truths and Little White Lies Nick paints a brilliantly funny, moving and brutally candid portrait of childhood, adolescence and eventual success.

Summary : Did you ever wonder why self-improvement strategies dealing with change and success make things seem so reasonable? Could it be that what makes all these mantras and pop books so appealing on a mass scale is the same thing that keeps them from working. They all "make sense." But are all the things that make sense TRUE? Dr. Fleming takes you deep within the mind of a psychologist and leadership consultant, letting you in on the secrets of the half-truth-the clever way we convince ourselves we are changing bad habits, leading a company to profitability, or even rising personally to the highest level of thinking about ultimate reality. Utilizing a questioning process that turns half-truths over to find the denied part of reality in us all, Dr. Fleming paves a way to understanding and change that no simple "7 Tips or Tools" book could possibly provide.

Summary : History is replete with stories of great people and extraordinary events that either never happened or didn’t happen the way we were told they did. Such news or embellishment thereof are part of what we consider common knowledge – information taught in schools and passed down to us. And they are wrong. How about these gems: The winter of 1777-78 was the coldest winter in Valley Forge in years, and many Continental soldiers died from the sub-zero weather: LIE Mohandas Gandhi held a lifelong belief in nonviolence, that characterized the struggle for Indian independence: LIE The atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were the mostr destructive air strikes against Japan during World War II: LIE Lies, Lies, and More Lies is a humorous, witty, and charming collection of anecdotes surrounding history, pop culture, and more. It is a book that will have readers questioning what they’ve learned or been told and, for these 250 facts anyway, the book advises you: Don’t You Believe It!
