The Wig, the Bitch and the Meltdown Book Review:

The Wig, The Bitch & The Meltdown is a satirical look behind the scenes of Model Muse, a fictional reality model competition show, and global phenomenon. This twisted tale of ambition, jealousy, blackmail, mystery, and revenge is seen through the eyes of our moral compass Pablo Michaels-the heart of production in the helter-skelter world of Model Muse. As "The Fixer," Pablo is the man everyone turns to in a crisis and through his eyes we experience first-hand, a behind the scenes look of the backstage shenanigans of the fashion/reality TV world. Struggling to hold the fledgling production together, Pablo juggles his duties to his "BFF," the ruthless and vulnerable antihero Keisha Kash, his Supermodel boss while trying to hold on to his own soul. With Model Muse becoming a mega TV franchise, Keisha receives a mysterious threatening note which begins the unraveling of the truth about his Supermodel boss. This revelation shatters Pablo's rose-colored glasses and becomes his worst nightmare, nearly destroying his faith in humanity. Will he succumb to the dog-eat-dog world of the entertainment industry and become like his boss, stopping at nothing to achieve his desires? Or, will he find a way to navigate the world of betrayal and duplicity that surrounds him, and remain true to himself?

Meltdown Book Review:

A groundbreaking take on how complexity causes failure in all kinds of modern systems—from social media to air travel—this practical and entertaining book reveals how we can prevent meltdowns in business and life. A crash on the Washington, D.C. metro system. An accidental overdose in a state-of-the-art hospital. An overcooked holiday meal. At first glance, these disasters seem to have little in common. But surprising new research shows that all these events—and the myriad failures that dominate headlines every day—share similar causes. By understanding what lies behind these failures, we can design better systems, make our teams more productive, and transform how we make decisions at work and at home. Weaving together cutting-edge social science with riveting stories that take us from the frontlines of the Volkswagen scandal to backstage at the Oscars, and from deep beneath the Gulf of Mexico to the top of Mount Everest, Chris Clearfield and András Tilcsik explain how the increasing complexity of our systems creates conditions ripe for failure and why our brains and teams can't keep up. They highlight the paradox of progress: Though modern systems have given us new capabilities, they've become vulnerable to surprising meltdowns—and even to corruption and misconduct. But Meltdown isn't just about failure; it's about solutions—whether you're managing a team or the chaos of your family's morning routine. It reveals why ugly designs make us safer, how a five-minute exercise can prevent billion-dollar catastrophes, why teams with fewer experts are better at managing risk, and why diversity is one of our best safeguards against failure. The result is an eye-opening, empowering, and entirely original book—one that will change the way you see our complex world and your own place in it.

Meltdown Book Review:

This book describes the irrational life of Soviet producers, the monstrous deprivation of Soviet consumers, and the ideological origins of the Soviet economy that have resulted in a system unable to bear the weight of being a superpower. The authors spell out the challenges that Gorbachev and his successors face. The penultimate chapter deals with the privatization of the Soviet economy. In the last chapter they document the failure of Western experts and pundits to create a true picture of the Soviet system.

Meltdown Book Review:

When George W. Bush took office in 2001, North Korea's nuclear program was frozen and Kim Jong Il had signaled he was ready to negotiate. Today, North Korea possesses as many as ten nuclear warheads, and possibly the means to provide nuclear material to rogue states or terrorist groups. How did this happen? Drawing on more than two hundred interviews with key players in Washington, Seoul, Tokyo, and Beijing, including Colin Powell, John Bolton, and ex–Korean president Kim Dae-jung, as well as insights gained during fourteen trips to Pyongyang, Mike Chinoy takes readers behind the scenes of secret diplomatic meetings, disputed intelligence reports, and Washington turf battles as well as inside the mysterious world of North Korea. Meltdown provides a wealth of new material about a previously opaque series of events that eventually led the Bush administration to abandon confrontation and pursue negotiations, and explains how the diplomatic process collapsed and produced the crisis the Obama administration confronts today.

Memories of a Meltdown Book Review:

In the spring of 1986, Mohamed Makhzangi was living in Kiev, an Egyptian doctor studying in the Ukraine. As a result, he--like thousands of others--found himself living a nuclear nightmare when the Chernobyl plant had a catastrophic meltdown. Despite numerous fail-safe protections, human error sent massive quantities of deadly radiation into the serene spring of the Soviet sky. In superbly crafted prose, Memories of a Meltdown describes the days that followed from Makhzangi's dual perspective, as both an outsider and a victim. Described by the author as an 'anti-memoir, ' this assemblage of impressions in the aftermath of the meltdown offers a searing account of factual events distilled through the filter of literature. Blending the realism of journalism with the emotional resonance of fiction, Makhzangi conveys the quiet but steadily mounting atmosphere of fear and panic, the dubious reliability of official statements, and an overall loss of the sense of safety, of anything ever being right with the world again. From the balding colleague who is concerned only about whether his hair will fall out, to a grandfather, fetching his young grandson a drink, who believes that there is less contamination in hot tap water than cool, Makhzangi portrays people unwilling or unable to believe in the magnitude of the disaster unfolding around them. In the finest tradition of literary reportage, Makhzangi masterfully conveys here the loneliness of exile, the urgency of a great tragedy, and the intimacy of personal experience.

The 8 Stages of a Meltdown Book Review:

From someone who has suffered Meltdowns and learned to manage and control them, The 8 Stages of a Meltdown: Insights into Life on the Autism Spectrum (eBook) is a warm and insightful book about how Meltdowns happen, what they feel like and how to limit their impact on you or your child’s life. Author Adrienne Furness offers tools, techniques, practical strategies and a common sense approach to dealing with the intangible and unseen in the field of mental health and disabilities. This wonderful book comes from years of attempting to understand what goes on in mind, body and spirit for those on the autism spectrum. By using different tools and techniques, meltdowns can become both less frequent and more manageable. Awareness and recognising “the energies” which are likely to topple you are a large part of the mitigation strategies because it is a lot easier to manage before the energies peak and trigger. The 8 Stages of a Meltdown contains helpful information and advice, including: • The Blob – what makes a Blob? • The 8 Stages of a Meltdown • Mitigating Meltdowns ? Learning to protect yourself ? Diversions, distractions and substitutions ? Changing the thought patterns ? Changing the visuals May this book shed Love and Light for you...
