New to Big Book Review:

Serial entrepreneurs David Kidder and Christina Wallace reveal their revolutionary playbook for igniting growth inside established companies. Most established companies face a key survival challenge, says David Kidder, CEO of Bionic, lifelong entrepreneur, and angel investor in more than thirty startups: operational efficiency and outdated bureaucracy are at war with new growth. Legacy companies are skilled at growing big businesses into even bigger ones. But they are less adept at discovering new opportunities and turning them into big businesses, the way entrepreneurs and early-stage investors must. In New to Big, Kidder and Wallace reveal their proprietary blueprint for installing a permanent growth capability inside any company--the Growth Operating System. The Growth OS borrows the best tools, systems, and mind-sets from entrepreneurship and venture capital and adapts them for established organizations, leveraging these two distinct skills as a form of management for building in a future that is uncertain. By focusing on what consumers do rather than what they say, celebrating productive failure, embracing a portfolio approach, and learning from the outside-in, Kidder and Wallace argue any company can go on offense and win the future. This isn't about a one-off innovation moonshot. It's about building a permanent ladder to the moon.

New to Big Book Review:

When David Kidder was invited to speak at GE's annual leadership conference in 2012, he posed a rather unexpected question from the stage down to then-chairman and CEO Jeff Immelt, "How many $50 million companies did you launch last year?" His next provocation was, "I bet the answer is zero." But Immelt, rather than being offended by the radical candor, admitted to the 700 leaders in attendance, "That was the most important question in the thirty-seven years of this conference." The fact is, as Kidder and Wallace show in New to Big, efficiency thinking and outdated bureaucracy is at war with new ideas. Established companies are skilled at growing big businesses into even bigger ones. Entrepreneurs and early-stage investors, on the other hand, are skilled at discovering new opportunities and turning them into big businesses. New to Bigcombines these two critical skills, introducing established companies to the methodology, tools, and systems of entrepreneurship and venture capital as a new form of management. It creates a way of working that they call the Growth Operating System. New to Bigis designed to unpack Bionic's Growth OS, which veteran venture capitalists and successful entrepreneurs use to discover and build opportunities in a future that is unknowable. Because even most bets placed by VC's fail, more than 80 percent of the time. Which is why New to Bigchallenges business leaders to focus on what customers do, rather than what they say; to celebrate productive failure; and to embrace a portfolio approach, learning from the outside-in. The Growth OS ultimately creates a permanent capability for growth, empowering established companies to build the future and take on the grand challenges of our time. Contributor Bio(s)

As one of today’s most influential business thinkers, Seth Godin helps his army of fans stay focused, stay connected, and stay dissatisfied with the status quo, the ordinary, the boring. His books, blog posts, magazine articles, and speeches have inspired countless entrepreneurs, marketing people, innovators, and managers around the world. Now, for the first time, Godin has collected the most provocative short pieces from his pioneering blog—ranked #70 by Feedster (out of millions published) in worldwide readership. This book also includes his most popular columns from Fast Company magazine, and several of the short e-books he has written in the last few years. A sample: • Bon Jovi And The Pirates • Christmas Card Spam • Clinging To Your Job Title? • How Much Would You Pay to Be on Oprah’s Show? • The Persistence of Really Bad Ideas • The Seduction of “Good Enough” • What Happens When It's All on Tape? • Would You Buy Life Insurance at a Rock Concert? Small is the New Big is a huge bowl of inspiration that you can gobble in one sitting or dip into at any time. As Godin writes in his introduction: “I guarantee that you'll find some ideas that don’t work for you. But I’m certain that you're smart enough to see the stuff you’ve always wanted to do, buried deep inside one of these riffs. And I’m betting that once inspired, you’ll actually make something happen.”

The Big New Yorker Book of Cats Book Review:

Look what The New Yorker dragged in! It’s the purr-fect gathering of talent celebrating our feline companions. This bountiful collection, beautifully illustrated in full color, features articles, fiction, humor, poems, cartoons, cover art, drafts, and drawings from the magazine’s archives.

Coraghessan Boyle, Roald Dahl, Wolcott Gibbs, Robert Graves, Emily Hahn, Ted Hughes, Jamaica Kincaid, Steven Millhauser, Haruki Murakami, Amy Ozols, Robert Pinsky, Jean Rhys, James Thurber, John Updike, Sylvia Townsend Warner, and E. B. White. Including a Foreword by Anthony Lane, this gorgeous keepsake will be a treasured gift for all cat lovers. Praise for The Big New Yorker Book of Cats “The Book of Cats comes a year after The Big New Yorker Book of Dogs—a publishing slight that, though it stings, I’ll forgive, as the latest anthology was worth the wait. . . . Two standout articles feature real-life obsessives of ages past who reveal today’s Caturnet devotees—with their GIFs and Tumblrs and hastily aggregated listicles—for what they truly are: amateurs. . . . Eat your heart out, Cute Overload.”—The New York Times Book Review “A beautiful hardcover.”—Jenny McCarthy, People “This irresistible anthology of articles, poems, essays, fiction, cartoons, and covers pulled from the New Yorker is a veritable treasure trove for cat lovers. Just dive right in; with stories from the likes of John Updike, Maeve Brennan, Roald Dalhl, and Haruki Murakami interwoven with hilariously wry cartoons, one can’t help but be enthralled. A must-have.”—Modern Cat “A shiny, well-fed tome . . . The anthology embodies the cat’s defining characteristic: its cluster of opposites, rolled together into a giant hairball of cultural attitudes—something, perhaps, at once uncomfortably and assuringly reflective of our own chronically conflicted selves.”—Brain Pickings “This gorgeous book has earned a permanent spot on my coffee table. It is an absolute joy to read and browse through, and I know it will bring me hours and hours of pleasure for years to come. And it makes a purr-fect gift for the special cat lovers in your life.”—The Conscious Cat “[A] sumptuous volume.”—The Dallas Morning News

Going Big Book Review:

With history and the extraordinary parallels between Biden and FDR as his guide, the veteran political analyst diagnoses what’s at stake for America in 2022 and beyond Joe Biden has found his way back to Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal. After four decades of diminishing prospects for ordinary people, the public likes what Biden is offering. Yet American democracy is in dire peril as Republicans, increasingly the national minority, try to destroy democracy in order to cling to power. It is the best of times and the worst of times. In Going Big, bestselling author and political journalist Robert Kuttner assesses the promise and peril of this critical juncture. Biden, like FDR in his time, faces multiple challenges. Roosevelt had to make terrible compromises with racist legislators to win enactment of his program. Biden, to achieve the necessary governing coalition, needs to achieve durable multiracial coalitions. Roosevelt had to conquer fascism in Europe; Biden must defeat it at home. And after four decades of neoliberal policy disasters reflecting Wall Street’s political influence, Biden needs to go beyond what even FDR achieved, to restore a democratic economy of broad possibility. From a writer with an unparalleled understanding of the history and politics that have made this moment possible, this book is the essential guide to what is at stake for Joe Biden, for America, and for our democracy.

Following the wild success of The Big Book of Bugs and The Big Book of Beasts, The Big Book of the Blue is the third installment in Yuval Zommer's beloved series. Alongside everything the young oceanographer needs to know, Zommer's charming illustrations bring to life some of the slipperiest, scaliest, strangest, and most monstrous underwater animals. The book opens by explaining how different types of animals are able to breathe and survive underwater, and the different families to which they belong. Subsequent pages are dedicated to specific creatures, including sea turtles, whales, sharks, stingrays, and seahorses, and show varied life in specific habitats, such as a coral reef or deep sea bed. The Big Book of the Blue also explores the underwater world thematically, looking at animals in danger, learning how to spot creatures at the beach, and discovering how to do our part to save sea life. Beautiful and filled with fascinating facts, young, curious readers won't be able to tear their eyes away from the page.

If you ever read "Rich dad poor dad" and "Think and Grow Rich" you would love to read "Think Big Grow Bigger." This book will help you to understand exactly your sequence of Actions that cause results. You'll enjoy in changing the sequence to gain better results. You'll enjoy to add some actions or delete that... you'll enjoy testing other sequences. The incredible fact is that you'll have the chance to recognize and apply the sequence of wealthy people. The Stickies Strategy (r) is really powerful!!! What happen If you need some help? The Author, Riccardo Proetto, is here to help you with seminars, courses and coaching. He applied this theory for himself. In 2009 he lost everything. Something like some million euros, house... car.. everything. The problem: Even if he has frequented courses and seminars for himself, that is always a good thing, no one has explained to him how to avoid the same mistakes. He used a lot of strategies, listened a lot of guru... but what his was looking for was not the cure. He wanted the healing. He wanted to help people and himself to avoid mistakes, to accelerate the learning process, to recognize the actions sequence of everything: wealthy style, healthy style... The good news is that he found the solution and the funny thing is that everything is based on personal meanings. The result: the system is always applicable. If you'll have the opportunity to participate at one of his seminars you'll listen with your ears and you'll see with your eyes how is his story. Inside Of This Book You'll Discover The Results To These Shocking Tests: 80% of modern millionaires were able to get there on annual incomes of $55,000 or less. Even meager savings eventually add up to thousands or millions of dollars.... (this one is almost dumb, cause it's SO easy) (Page 9) Net Worth Formula Simplified The rich have a net worth often double or triple the amount. The average American has less than half. The goal is to double your net worth. (Page 9) Sense of Spending The truly rich hold off gratification, knowing that what is trendy, popular or a must have today may not last until tomorrow. (Page 11) How interest affects your debt Pay more than the minimum on loans. The more you pay now, the less you pay later.(Page 13) Today millionaires spend more time selecting what to buy than buying the product itself. They look for the best bargain before laying their money down. (Page 15) THE STICKIES STRATEGY (r) ... I've seen during these years that our personal meaning of things is the real engine that let us go forward or backward. So I've developed the Stickies Strategy. You can find your exact sequence of actions through the "meanings" and improve or change that one...(Page 54) ...extra Steps: How to Use Your Passion to Succeed Over time, we often forget the passions of our childhood or even the ones we discover as we age." Take a stroll down memory lane and make a list. What would you do if you had all of the money you needed and didn't have to worry about paying your bills?"
