Honest to Greatness Book Review:

In today's hyper-transparent world, consumers have enormous power to decide which brands are worth their time and money—so how do you make sure they choose yours? Unfortunately, most leaders and organizations are stuck following archaic, detrimental business practices. Meanwhile, savvy consumers and employees across every generation are making their stance perfectly clear: They are not interested in supporting organizations that seem inauthentic, soulless, or untrustworthy. In this environment, only the honest will survive. In Honest to Greatness, serial Inc. 5000 entrepreneur Peter Kozodoy shows how today's greatest business leaders use honesty—not as a touchy-feely core value, but as a business strategy that produces game-changing, industry-dominating success. Through case studies and interviews with leaders at Bridgewater Associates, Sprint, Quicken Loans, Domino's, The Ritz-Carlton, and more, Kozodoy presents fresh business concepts that anyone in the workplace can implement in order to: • Reach, engage, and retain your best customers • Attract and inspire the best talent in any industry • Create an unbeatable culture of innovation that dominates your competitors • Earn your team's respect and loyalty • Unlock deep personal fulfillment by setting the "right" goals Filled with powerful lessons for current and future leaders, this timely book demonstrates how to use honesty at both the organizational and individual level to achieve true greatness in business and in life.

Superconnector Book Review:

Abandon the networking-for-networking's-sake mentality in favor of a more powerful and effective approach to creating and enhancing connections. STOP NETWORKING. Seriously, stop doing it. Now. It is time to ditch the old networking-for networking's-sake mentality in favor of a more powerful and effective approach to creating and enhancing connections. In Superconnector, Scott Gerber and Ryan Paugh reveal a new category of professionals born out of the social media era: highly valuable community-builders who make things happen through their keen understanding and utilization of social capital. Superconnectors understand the power of relationship-building, problem-solve by connecting the dots at high levels, and purposefully cause different worlds and communities to interact with the intention of creating mutual value. How can you become a Superconnector? Gerber and Paugh share instructive anecdotes from a who's who roster of high achievers, revealing how to systematically manage a professional community and maximize its value. Of utmost importance is practicing Habitual Generosity, acting on the knowledge that your greatest returns come when you least expect them, and that by putting others' needs first the good karma will flow back to you tenfold. Gerber and Paugh also explore winning strategies such as The Art of Selectivity, a well-honed ability to define which relationships matter most for you and decide how you will maintain them over time. Full of helpful advice on how to communicate with anyone about anything, Google-proof your reputation, and much more, Superconnector is a must-read for those seeking personal and business success.

Electronic Commerce 2018 Book Review:

This new Edition of Electronic Commerce is a complete update of the leading graduate level/advanced undergraduate level textbook on the subject. Electronic commerce (EC) describes the manner in which transactions take place over electronic networks, mostly the Internet. It is the process of electronically buying and selling goods, services, and information. Certain EC applications, such as buying and selling stocks and airline tickets online, are reaching maturity, some even exceeding non-Internet trades. However, EC is not just about buying and selling; it also is about electronically communicating, collaborating, and discovering information. It is about e-learning, e-government, social networks, and much more. EC is having an impact on a significant portion of the world, affecting businesses, professions, trade, and of course, people. The most important developments in EC since 2014 are the continuous phenomenal growth of social networks, especially Facebook , LinkedIn and Instagram, and the trend toward conducting EC with mobile devices. Other major developments are the expansion of EC globally, especially in China where you can find the world's largest EC company. Much attention is lately being given to smart commerce and the use of AI-based analytics and big data to enhance the field. Finally, some emerging EC business models are changing industries (e.g., the shared economy models of Uber and Airbnb). The 2018 (9th) edition, brings forth the latest trends in e-commerce, including smart commerce, social commerce, social collaboration, shared economy, innovations, and mobility.

The Husbands Book Review:

It’s Aya’s wedding day. Her third. Her current two husbands aren’t too fussed. In a society in which there are few women, that’s just what happens. But as the household prepares for the wedding feast, a stranger arrives – one who threatens to challenge everything they believe in. Against a backdrop of modern rural India, Sharmila Chauhan weaves an extraordinary tale of love and wonder. From the preparation of luxury food and the sacrifice of the lamb to the dressing of the bride and the dance to end all dances, this will be an exuberant, joyful and challenging piece of theatre. ‘In parts of India, polyandry has become a necessity. Gendercide, as a consequence of the ancient preference for boys, the modern desire for smaller families and the increasing availability of ultrasound techniques to detect the gender of a baby still in the womb means that the number of females is declining. I wrote The Husbands both as a response to this but also as an exploration of the complexity of love, intimacy and trust between one woman and three men where gender differences and expectations are amplified. In a sense this play is as much a warning as an allegory for the fate of women in The West today.’ - Sharmila Chauhan

Rationality and Reality Book Review:

Alan Musgrave has consistently defended two positions that he regards as commonsensical: critical realism and critical rationalism. In this volume a group of internationally-renowned authors discuss themes that are relevant in one way or another to Musgrave’s work. Rather than a standard celebratory festschrift, this book offers a new examination of topics of current interest in philosophy. The contributory essays are followed by responses from Alan Musgrave himself.

Wuthering Heights Book Review:

Wuthering Heights is the name of Mr. HeathcliffÕs dwelling. ÔWutheringÕ being a significant provincial adjective, descriptive of the atmospheric tumult to which its station is exposed in stormy weather. Pure, bracing ventilation they must have up there at all times, indeed: one may guess the power of the north wind blowing over the edge, by the excessive slant of a few stunted firs at the end of the house; and by a range of gaunt thorns all stretching their limbs one way, as if craving alms of the sun. Happily, the architect had foresight to build it strong: the narrow windows are deeply set in the wall, and the corners defended with large jutting stones. Before passing the threshold, I paused to admire a quantity of grotesque carving lavished over the front, and especially about the principal door; above which, among a wilderness of crumbling griffins and shameless little boys, I detected the date Ô1500,Õ and the name ÔHareton Earnshaw.Õ I would have made a few comments, and requested a short history of the place from the surly owner; but his attitude at the door appeared to demand my speedy entrance, or complete departure, and I had no desire to aggravate his impatience previous to inspecting the penetralium. One stop brought us into the family sitting-room, without any introductory lobby or passage: they call it here Ôthe houseÕ pre-eminently. It includes kitchen and parlour, generally; but I believe at Wuthering Heights the kitchen is forced to retreat altogether into another quarter: at least I distinguished a chatter of tongues, and a clatter of culinary utensils, deep within; and I observed no signs of roasting, boiling, or baking, about the huge fireplace; nor any glitter of copper saucepans and tin cullenders on the walls. One end, indeed, reflected splendidly both light and heat from ranks of immense pewter dishes, interspersed with silver jugs and tankards, towering row after row, on a vast oak dresser, to the very roof. The latter had never been under-drawn: its entire anatomy lay bare to an inquiring eye, except where a frame of wood laden with oatcakes and clusters of legs of beef, mutton, and ham, concealed it. Above the chimney were sundry villainous old guns, and a couple of horse-pistols: and, by way of ornament, three gaudily-painted canisters disposed along its ledge. The floor was of smooth, white stone; the chairs, high-backed, primitive structures, painted green: one or two heavy black ones lurking in the shade. In an arch under the dresser reposed a huge, liver-coloured bitch pointer, surrounded by a swarm of squealing puppies; and other dogs haunted other recesses.

Balenciaga and Spain Book Review:

This unprecedented volume considers the profound and enduring impact of Spain's history, art, and culture - on one of the greatest designers of the twentieth century, the legendary Cristobal Balenciaga. Hailed as "fashion's Picasso" by Cecil Beaton, Balenciaga created a revolutionary oeuvre that transformed the way women dressed. From the opening of his Paris fashion home in 1937 until his retirement in 1968, his visionary, ever-evolving designs and impeccable tailoring seduced generations of the most fashionable women in the world, including Queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain, the Duchess of Windsor, Gloria Guinness, Pauline de Rothschild, Mona Bismarck, Princess Grace of Monaco, Dons Duke, and Diana Vreeland. Published on the occasion of a major exhibition at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, this book traces the deep influence of the Spanish masters-from Zurbarân, Velâzquez, and Goya to Picasso and Miro-on the protean Balenciaga's designs. It also investigates the legacy of his native Spain's religious dress and ceremony, its lavish royal court, the tradition of flamenco dance, the drama of the bullfight, and the distinctive costumes of the country's diverse regions. Featuring never-before-published photographs by renowned artiste such as Richard Avedon and Irving Penn as well as remarkable documentary images from the archives of the home of Balenciaga, this illuminating and lavishly illustrated volume is a must-have for art and fashion connoisseurs.

Tom Sachs Book Review:

The most recent body of paintings of this New York-based artist, featuring the artist's examination of consumer culture in his handmade, "do-it- yourself " aesthetic. This is the first publication to focus exclusively on the roughly hewn paintings by Tom Sachs (b. 1966), tracing his interest in combining cultural icons and corporate logos with a handcrafted aesthetic. Mining the American landscape for iconography, Sachs investigates themes of corporate and cultural identity--such as consumerism, branding, cultural dominance, and technological development--to explore the achievements, failures, and inherent contradictions of contemporary society. In addition to the essay by David Rimanelli and twenty-two plates, there is a conversation with the artist and an extensive chronology. Sachs's meticulously handcrafted paintings depict such diverse topics as the Reese's candy bar, Fanta logo, Family Guy, Air Force One, Krusty O's cereal box, and the American flag; all modern icons that document successes and failures of the American experience and the ambiguities and contradictions inherent in its society and culture.

Grace of Monaco Book Review:

A singular look into Grace of Monaco's stylish life through the exceptional dresses that the house of Dior created for her over the years. Grace Kelly's life may have transformed from that of a Hollywood star to Princess of Monaco, but her status as a style icon remained constant throughout her life. There is perhaps no better record of this than her close thirty-year-long relationship with the illustrious house of Dior. Published on the occasion of the 2019 exhibition at the Musée Christian Dior in Granville, France, this sophisticated illustrated volume celebrates the close collaboration between Grace Kelly and the artistic directors of Dior throughout the years, from Christian Dior, to her support of Yves Saint Laurent, and her close friendship with Marc Bohan. An in-depth overview of this special exhibition, this new title explores the evolving relationship between Dior's designers and their muse through insights from experts on Dior and Monaco's royals--including an intimate interview with Princess Grace's favorite couturier and close friend, Marc Bohan--and beautiful images from Dior's archives as well as an exclusive photoshoot in Monaco. Fashion-loving readers will be delighted to rediscover the classic elegance of Grace Kelly's wardrobe through the gorgeous designs created for her by Dior.
