    1% Principle How Small Steps can Dramatically Improve Your Life and Potential
    Almost everyone will experience a sense of 'being in a rut' at some stage in their life. Whether you are stuck in a job you hate or are getting passed over for promotion, whether your relationship has lost its magic or you are struggling with your weight and fitness - these situations over time will sap your motivation and well-being. There are many books and programmes which offer ways to immediately turn your life around. The reality for most of us, though, is that these approaches simply don't work over the long term. Smaller steps over a long period of time will have a greater, more beneficial and successful effect on your life than bigger steps in a shorter period of time. But how do we identify which changes can have the maximum impact? This book shows you through highly practical exercises, tips and real life examples how you can 'tweak your way to success'.

    80/20 Principle
    In the 20 years since its first publication, The 80/20 Principle has become a business classic and a global bestseller. In this new edition Richard Koch outlines a fresh understanding of the true power of the principle. And it is powerful: the 80/20 principle - the counter-intuitive yet prevalent fact that 80% of results flow from 20% of causes - is the one true principle of highly effective people and organisations and has stood the test of time. Many thousands of people throughout the world have found the principle useful at work, in their careers and in their personal lives. Koch outlines how with the 80/20 Principle we can achieve much more with much less effort, time and resources simply by concentrating on the all-important 20% thus controlling events instead of being controlled by them, and with several times the results.

  • Academic Job Search Handbook
    Academic Job Search Handbook
    The Academic Job Search Handbook is the comprehensive guide to finding a faculty position in any discipline. Building on the groundbreaking success and unique offerings of earlier volumes, the fifth edition presents insightful new content on aspects of the search at all stages. Beginning with an overview of academic careers and institutional structures, it moves step by step through the application process, from establishing relationships with advisors, positioning oneself in the market, learning about job openings, preparing CVs, cover letters, and other application materials, to negotiating offers. Of great value are the sixty new sample documents from a diverse spectrum of successful applicants. The handbook includes a search timetable, appendices of career resources, and a full sample application package. This fifth edition features new or updated sections on issues of current interest, such as job search concerns for pregnant or international candidates, the use of social media strategies to address CV gaps, and difficulties faced by dual-career couples. The chapter on alternatives to faculty jobs has been expanded and presents sample resumes of PhDs who found nonfaculty positions.


    For more than twenty years, The Academic Job Search Handbook has assisted job seekers in all academic disciplines in the search for faculty positions at different kinds of institutions from research-focused universities to community colleges. Current faculty who used the book themselves recommend it to their own students and postdocs. The many new first-person narratives provide insight into issues and situations candidates may encounter such as applying for an international job, combining parenting with an academic career, going from an administrative job to a faculty position, and seeking faculty positions as a same-sex couple.

  • After Piketty: The Agenda for Economics and Inequality
    After Piketty: The Agenda for Economics and Inequality
    A Foreign Affairs Best Book of the Year

    "An intellectual excursion of a kind rarely offered by modern economics."
    -Foreign Affairs

    Thomas Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century is the most widely discussed work of economics in recent years. But are its analyses of inequality and economic growth on target? Where should researchers go from there in exploring the ideas Piketty pushed to the forefront of global conversation? A cast of leading economists and other social scientists-including Emmanuel Saez, Branko Milanovic, Laura Tyson, and Michael Spence-tackle these questions in dialogue with Piketty.

    "A fantastic introduction to Piketty's main argument in Capital, and to some of the main criticisms, including doubt that his key equation...showing that returns on capital grow faster than the economy-will hold true in the long run."
    -Nature

    "Piketty's work...laid bare just how ill-equipped our existing frameworks are for understanding, predicting, and changing inequality. This extraordinary collection shows that our most nimble social scientists are responding to the challenge."
    -Justin Wolfers, University of Michigan

  • Airbnb Story
    Airbnb Story
    'An engrossing story of audacious entrepreneurism' -- Charles Duhigg

    'Captures the remarkable journey of Airbnb exceedingly well' -- Reid Hoffman

    'fast paced, fun dive into one of the seminal firms of our time' -- Rana Foroohar

    In 2008, two broke art school graduates and their coder-whiz friend set up a platform that - in less than a decade - became one of the largest provider of accommodations in the world. Now valued at $31 billion, Airbnb is in the very top tier of Silicon Valley's 'unicorn' startups.

    Yet the company has not been without controversy - disrupting a $500 billion hotel industry makes you a few enemies. This is also a story of regulators who want to shut it down, hotel industry leaders who want it to disappear and neighbourhoods that struggle with private homes open for public rental. But beyond the headlines and the horror stories, Airbnb has changed the terms of travel for a whole generation - where a sense of belonging has built trust between hosts and guests seeking a more original travel experience that hotels have struggled to replicate.

    This is the first, definitive book to tell the remarkable story behind Airbnb in all its forms - cultural zeitgeist, hotel disruptor, enemy to regulators - and the first in-depth character study of its leader Brian Chesky, the company's curious co-founder and CEO. It reveals what got Airbnb where it is today, why they are nothing like Uber, and where they are going next.

  • Algebra of Happiness
    Algebra of Happiness
    From the New York Times bestselling author, a provocative book of hard-won wisdom for achieving a fulfilling career and life.

    - How can you have a meaningful career, not just a lucrative one?
    - Is a work/life balance really possible?
    - What does it take to make a long-term relationship succeed?
    - What can you do now so there are no regrets aged 40, 50 or 80?

    As Scott Galloway puts it, by the time you hit your mid twenties sh*t gets real. Life become stressful. Even the smart, the hard working and the elite can feel lost in a chaotic, noisy and unpredictable world. As a professor at New York University's Stern School of Business, the debate in Galloway's MBA class often veers away from business strategy to the challenging issue of life strategies. Which is why Galloway, in his signature, take-no-prisoners style, has developed a dynamic formula for a life well lived.

    In The Algebra of Happiness Galloway tells you how life can be navigated and negotiated better to maximise happiness and minimise the inevitable stress. Delivering practical advice and hard-won wisdom on everything from when to own property to how hard to work, this is self-help for anyone struggling with life's big questions. Through simple equations that measure the relationship between success, resilience and failure or the correlation between happiness and money, Galloway attempts to convert intangible advice to tangible equations.
