Alun Evans the Golf Majors Book 2017 Book Review:

Alun Evans' now annual addictive chunk of Golf Majors facts and figures covers the epic events of the 2016 Grand Slams, as well as the usual pot pourri of results and player CVs going back to 1860; comparison tables; venues; and then 40 pages of records of all kinds associated with golf's most important Championships. In 2016, all four Majors threw up a new Major Champion: the unlikely, but well-deserving Englishman, Danny Willett, won the Masters after erstwhile boy wonder Jordan Spieth blew up on Augusta's back nine; Dustin Johnson overcame some curious officiating and a post-round stroke penalty to win an overdue Major at Oakmont's US Open; the heroic battle over the links of Royal Troon in the Open Championship saw the Swede Henrik Stenson shooting a last-round 63 to repel the maverick veteran Phil Mickelson; and Jimmy Walker's long walk to fame, successful in the PGA Championship at Baltusrol, his first Major after 17 years of trying. All these events are featured in detailed reports, backed up with performance details of every player who teed off in the year's four classics; full leaderboards (including all those who missed the cut or failed to reach the end); round leaders and low scores per round. The year's events are then summarized in a league table of the best players, based on Evans' unique scoring system. Tables are provided, too, using the same technique, to compare players of different eras, and culminate in the popular, provocative 'Hall of Fame', the Top 100 players in Major Championship history. Evans, whose 'From Old Tom to the Tiger' was shortlisted for Sports Book of the Year in 2012, continues to produce record books 'par excellence', but with an engagingly light narrative to caress them into the titanic human and sporting storylines the Majors seem to create, year in, year out, without them appearing nerdy or obtrusive. Jack Nicklaus has hailed the Golf Majors series of books because he felt, 'readers and golf fans alike can easily recall their memories of the Major Championships of the world'; and Jack's greatest rival and good friend, the late, great Arnold Palmer commented, 'Alun Evans has compiled such a great summary...of the four Major Championships'. 'Alun Evans' Golf Majors Book, 2017' is a must for all golf, indeed all sports, fans. As the Daily Mail's Derek Lawrenson succinctly put it, 'When it comes to the Major Championships, look no further than Alun Evans'.

You Can Do Anything Book Review:

In a tech-dominated world, the most needed degrees are the most surprising: the liberal arts. Did you take the right classes in college? Will your major help you get the right job offers? For more than a decade, the national spotlight has focused on science and engineering as the only reliable choice for finding a successful post-grad career. Our destinies have been reduced to a caricature: learn to write computer code or end up behind a counter, pouring coffee. Quietly, though, a different path to success has been taking shape. In You Can Do Anything, George Anders explains the remarkable power of a liberal arts education - and the ways it can open the door to thousands of cutting-edge jobs every week. The key insight: curiosity, creativity, and empathy aren't unruly traits that must be reined in. You can be yourself, as an English major, and thrive in sales. You can segue from anthropology into the booming new field of user research; from classics into management consulting, and from philosophy into high-stakes investing. At any stage of your career, you can bring a humanist's grace to our rapidly evolving high-tech future. And if you know how to attack the job market, your opportunities will be vast. In this book, you will learn why resume-writing is fading in importance and why "telling your story" is taking its place. You will learn how to create jobs that don't exist yet, and to translate your campus achievements into a new style of expression that will make employers' eyes light up. You will discover why people who start in eccentric first jobs - and then make their own luck - so often race ahead of peers whose post-college hunt focuses only on security and starting pay. You will be ready for anything.

Alun Evans the Golf Majors Book Review:

THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE SOURCE OF INFORMATION ON THE MAJOR CHAMPIONSHIPS OF GOLF This, the 15th incarnation in one form or another, of Alun Evans' recording of golf's Major Championships, is the eighth consecutive annual edition of The Golf Majors since the author's mighty From Old Tom to the Tiger in 2011. The 2018 edition continues the greatest, most comprehensively detailed chronicle of these wonderful sporting events from the very first Open Championship in 1860 up to the present day. Through a balance of engaging narrative and apposite facts, a series of relevant and accurate charts, lists and tables, the most recent Major Championships' data has in Evans' latest book been intertwined with the rich fabric of golf's history. The complete story of the Majors of 2017 has been logged, telling of first-time Champions Sergio Garcia (whose win in the Masters ended a series of near misses going back two decades), Brooks Koepka (a result waiting to happen in the US Open), and Justin Thomas (emerging from the shadow of boyhood friend Jordan Spieth to take the PGA Championship). It relates the breaking the sequence of first-time Champions by Spieth himself, resurgent after an up-and-down period in the wake his back-to-back Majors successes in 2015, winning an absorbing Open Championship at Royal Birkdale. This, too, is now part of the vibrant tapestry that is the story of golf, as told through its most meaningful milestones. In addition, The Gold Majors 2018 is just that. An exhaustive discussion on the venues for 2018's Majors is punctuated with the most up-to-date information: changes to the courses and their yardages and pars provided by the organizers themselves; the history of the courses and past winners of Major Championships already hosted there. Add to that the support of copious facts and records which appear over the book's last 40 pages, it is easy to understand The Daily Mail's Derek Lawrenson's commenting that, 'When it come to the Major Championships, look no further than Alun Evans' Golf Majors', or John Hopkins of The Times ruefully complaining that it's '...a work you have to keep an eye on in case a colleague borrows it and forgets to return it...'. But you don't have to be a top golf journalist to appreciate Alun Evans' epic series. According to Jeff Silverman's review in Golf.com, '...it is a cornerstone of essential information'. Continuing the saga, therefore, Alun Evans' Golf Majors 2018 is an absolute must for all golf fans and serious followers of top class international sport. Packed with facts and stats, yet highly readable, this is the only book anyone would need on THE GOLF MAJORS

Mothering by Degrees Book Review:

"In Mothering by Degrees, I show how single mothers who pursue college degrees in early 21st century America must navigate a difficult course as they attempt to reconcile their identities as single mothers, college students, and, in many cases, employees. As they combine these multiple and often competing roles and responsibilities, they must also negotiate a balance between cultural ideals of motherhood and their own definitions of what it means to be a "good" mother, particularly as those ideals and definitions are shaped within context of post-welfare reform America and the post-secondary institutions they attend. By comparing the experiences of nearly 100 single mother college students attending three postsecondary education institutions in the United States, I illustrate how these women navigate the various obstacles they encounter, especially obstacles related to financial concerns, child care, time constraints, and the "chilly" climate of higher education. In addition, I demonstrate that the women regard postsecondary education not only as a means of escaping poverty but also as an extension of their mothering work, something they do to help ensure the long-term health and well-being of their children. Thus, this project provides a situated, comparative account of the experiences of single mothers who are college students in order to foster a better understanding of the complex ideologies and social structures that influence the life choices and education experiences of members of this important but understudied student population. Finally, the project discusses policies and programs that can help provide better support to single mother and may diminish the challenges they face as they endeavor to complete their education"--

Humanizing Business Book Review:

This book is about humanizing business. In contrast to the mainstream modern management and leadership literature, this book provides distinctly humane perspectives on business. The volume travels outside the world of business to explore what Humanities – such as Philosophy, History, Literature, Creative Arts, and Cultural Studies – can offer to business. Renowned scholars from different Humanities disciplines, as well as management researchers exploring the heritage of Humanities, convey what it actually means to make business more humane. The book strives to humanize business. It aims to show that it is not people who have to suppress their human feelings, aspirations, and beliefs when they are at their workplaces, but it is business itself that needs to be redefined by the human norms of human beings. Companies should care about their employees and other stakeholders letting them be themselves, i.e. be human, at work and beyond. The book will be of interest to management scholars across various business disciplines. It can also be used as teaching material in the classroom with MBA students, especially in Business Ethics, Business and Society, Sustainability, Organizational Behavior, Human Resource Management and other management courses. The volume will also be of interest to scholars that work in different Humanities fields and whose interests span organizations, management, and business. Finally, many practitioners in the business world, especially those in managerial and leadership positions, will find the book both thought-provoking and useful for them as well.

What Psychology Majors Could and Should be Doing Book Review:

More students are majoring in psychology than ever before - over 85,000 students graduate with psychology degrees each year - so competition for grad-school spots and good jobs is fierce. What are you doing to stand out from the other hundreds of thousands of psychology majors? If a good GPA is all you have to show for your years in college, you may be in trouble. To go beyond the minimum, students could (and should) get involved in research, develop their scientific writing skills, attend conferences, join clubs and professional organizations, build a library of professional books, and present their research.By getting out of the classroom and actively participating in the real world of psychology, students can build skills that will prepare them for the competitive realms of graduate school and the workforce. Written in a lighthearted and humorous tone, this book shows both grad-school bound and career-bound students how to seek out and make the most of these opportunities. This book is suitable for undergraduate psychology majors and their professors; and other social science undergraduate majors, such as sociology, that would benefit from guidance about research, presentation, and other professional skills.
