Sind wir nicht alle davon überzeugt, dass wir am besten mit äußeren Anreizen wie Geld und Prestige oder durch "Zuckerbrot und Peitsche" zu motivieren sind? "Alles falsch", sagt Daniel H. Pink in seinem provokanten und zukunftsweisenden Buch. Das Geheimnis unseres persönlichen Erfolges ist das zutiefst menschliche Bedürfnis, unser Leben selbst zu bestimmen, zu lernen, Neues zu erschaffen und damit unsere Lebensqualität und unsere Welt zu verbessern. Daniel H. Pink enthüllt die Widersprüche zwischen dem, was die Wissenschaft weiß, und dem, was die Wirtschaft tut – und wie genau dies jeden Aspekt unseres Lebens beeinflusst. Er demonstriert, dass das Prinzip von Bestrafung und Belohnung exakt der falsche Weg ist, um Menschen für die Herausforderungen von Heute zu motivieren, egal ob in Beruf oder Privatleben. In "Drive" untersucht er die drei Elemente der wirklichen Motivation – Selbstbestimmung, Perfektionierung und Sinnerfüllung – und bietet kluge sowie überraschende Techniken an, um diese in die Tat umzusetzen. Daniel H. Pink stellt uns Menschen vor, die diese neuen Ansätze zur Motivation bereits erfolgreich in ihr Leben integriert haben und uns damit entschlossen einen außergewöhnlichen Weg in die Zukunft zeigen.

Chris Aragon provides a direct, somewhat cynical, and slightly gruff look at the everyday tasks and responsibilities of being an Over The Road Truck Driver as an employee of a very large trucking company. Hollywood has always painted the public picture of what yesterday’s trucker looked like, but Chris’s hard toned look at the modern and highly regulated Commercial Drivers License paints a much different picture. With Road Safety at the center, Chris attempts to explain some of the complexity that is today’s Trucking Industry for the Non-Owner-Operator of the 18 Wheeler Culture. From the starting point of obtaining a Class A Commercial Driver’s License to the day to day dealings with company management to the suggestions for comfort while out on a national tour, Chris lays his no nonsense approach out in a raw sense without the hidden meanings tucked in the folds. In Chris’s previous full career as a Corrections Officer Sergeant in a maximum security setting, he developed a Funny Frowned Face as opposed to a poker face in communicating his thoughts. Chris often jokes about his Grumpy Personality with many of his friends and family and he hopes that the raw and pungent outlay doesn’t protrude itself as overly provocative to any reader.

A woman ultimately has only two dimensions, anxiety and maternal instinct, and if intensified one dimension has the power to completely neutralize the other, and given this, a woman is either a totally loving and devoted wife and mother or an indefatigably demoralizing whore. Whores are precisely counter-reactionary extremists who have extremely warped concepts of strength, masculinity and self-determination who view men as monsters, life as victimization and have a religious conviction that relationships just don't work and given these facts, at its core, pimping is ultimately not about getting a piece of the action, but a piece of the counter-reaction. Pimps: The Raw Truth Grand Inquisitor Level Pimpnological Conclusions is a highly informative work that is about total comprehension of the totally incomprehensible. Pimps: The Raw Truth is not another run of the mill collection of hustler's tales that ultimately tell you absolutely nothing, Pimps is in fact an unimaginable wealth of insight into the behavioral profiles and environmental factors that drive individuals to live the self-detrimental lifestyle that is relentlessly pursued by panderers and prostitutes complete with the real world functions of all of their auxiliaries, omen and morbid appendages that is the absolute closest that a literary source can legally come to total comprehension of this ancient clandestine culture. Pimps very clearly and precisely explains how, as opposed to being a form of Alpha Masculinity, pimping is in fact at its core a highly feminine form of sexual militancy that employs the vagina as a weapons system as opposed to a human reproductive system. Pimps are merely master victims who are the Kings of minuscule Kingdoms that are built on the mess that other people have created and as such pimps are masters of isolating women and causing them to fly backward by turning them into multi-state in-flight felons. Pimps: The Raw Truth peers deep into the murkiest depths of the psyche of pimps and prostitutes and completely exposes precisely what lies behind the perms, manicures, jewelry, flashy clothing, drugs, threats, relentless abuse and total obsession with tearing down, breaking and attempting to completely demoralize and control women. Pimps: The Raw Truth explains why whores are the bipolar opposites of ladies, how to very clearly and precisely distinguish the difference between whores and ladies, why whores in fact do not choose pimps, why runaways are drawn to pimps, why cops act like thugs with government resources, why men pay prostitutes, why women get involved in serial abusive and exploitive relationships, why homosexuals and feminists are constantly at odds with whores and bisexuals, why players are not and absolutely do not succeed as pimps, why criminal organizations ultimately fail, the mysterious parallels between priests and pimps and the reasons why prostitution centers worldwide are invariably likewise religious centers.

Die Arbeit hat sich im letzten Jahrzehnt weiter verändert. Bereits in 50 Jahren werden weniger als 10 Prozent der Bevölkerung ausreichen, um alle Güter und Dienstleistungen bereitzustellen. Die Konsequenzen für die sozialen Sicherungssysteme sind dramatisch, soziale Konlikte scheinen unvermeidlich. Dass "es nicht mehr genug Arbeit für alle geben wird" erkannte Jeremy Rifkin bereits in seinem Weltbesteller Das Ende der Arbeit - und seine Thesen sind heute aktueller denn je. In der Neuausgabe des in 16 Sprachen übersetzten Bestsellers entwickelt Rifkin seine radikalen Vorschläge weiter und zeigt mit gewohntem wirtschaftlichen und politischen Sachverstand, wie wir verhindern können, dass uns die Arbeit ausgeht. "Rifkins Buch wird uns noch lange beschäftigen." Süddeutsche Zeitung

Available for the First Time: The Complete Social Entrepreneur's Playbook Covers all three phases of the start-up to scale-up process, developed with reader feedback from "one of the more unusual ebook...experiments of the year" (ThinReads) Wharton professor Ian C. MacMillan and Dr. James Thompson, director of the Wharton Social Entrepreneurship Program, provide a tough-love approach that significantly increases the likelihood of a successful social enterprise launch in the face of the high-uncertainty conditions typically encountered by social entrepreneurs. MacMillan and Thompson used their own systematic framework to publish The Social Entrepreneur's Playbook. To test the market, they offered the first phase in their start-up method (step 1) as a free ebook. Readers were invited to join The Social Entrepreneur's Advisory Group, and nearly 300 aspiring and active social entrepreneurs shared feedback that helped shape the complete edition of the book, which covers all three steps in the start-up to scale-up process. Based on this crowd-sourced feedback from readers of the free ebook and drawing on the authors' more than 26 years' combined experience developing and studying social enterprises in the field across Africa and in the United States, this new edition provides guidance for each phase: Phase One: Pressure Test Your Start-Up Idea. Based on the free ebook, this expanded section now includes advice on setting revenue and social impact goals, how to navigate the sociopolitical landscape, and how to develop a strong concept statement. In addition, MacMillan and Thompson provide advice on how to identify and test a proposed revenue-generating solution and define and segment your target population. Phase Two: Plan Your Social Enterprise. All new to this edition, this critical phase shows you how to frame and scope the venture, determine what it will take to actually deliver a sustainable enterprise, identify the key assumptions that have been made, and design checkpoints to test those assumptions before making major investments. Phase Three: Launch and Scale Your Social Enterprise. Available for the first time in this edition, you will learn how to effectively launch your enterprise, manage upside potential and downside risk, and strategically scale up. Filled with accessible frameworks and tools, as well as inspiring stories of social entrepreneurs, The Social Entrepreneur's Playbook is a must-read for any aspiring or active social entrepreneur, as well as philanthropists, foundations, and nonprofits interested in doing more good with fewer resources. Includes access to downloadable planning documents, including user-friendly spreadsheets

Von den Bergen Idahos nach Cambridge – der unwahrscheinliche »Bildungsweg« der Tara Westover. Tara Westover ist 17 Jahre alt, als sie zum ersten Mal eine Schulklasse betritt. Zehn Jahre später kann sie eine beeindruckende akademische Laufbahn vorweisen. Aufgewachsen im ländlichen Amerika, befreit sie sich aus einer ärmlichen, archaischen und von Paranoia und Gewalt geprägten Welt durch – Bildung, durch die Aneignung von Wissen, das ihr so lange vorenthalten worden war. Die Berge Idahos sind Taras Heimat, sie lebt als Kind im Einklang mit der grandiosen Natur, mit dem Wechsel der Jahreszeiten – und mit den Gesetzen, die ihr Vater aufstellt. Er ist ein fundamentalistischer Mormone, vom baldigen Ende der Welt überzeugt und voller Misstrauen gegenüber dem Staat, von dem er sich verfolgt sieht. Tara und ihre Geschwister gehen nicht zur Schule, sie haben keine Geburtsurkunden, und ein Arzt wird selbst bei fürchterlichsten Verletzungen nicht gerufen. Und die kommen häufig vor, denn die Kinder müssen bei der schweren Arbeit auf Vaters Schrottplatz helfen, um über die Runden zu kommen. Taras Mutter, die einzige Hebamme in der Gegend, heilt die Wunden mit ihren Kräutern. Nichts ist dieser Welt ferner als Bildung. Und doch findet Tara die Kraft, sich auf die Aufnahmeprüfung fürs College vorzubereiten, auch wenn sie quasi bei null anfangen muss ... Wie Tara Westover sich aus dieser Welt befreit, überhaupt erst einmal ein Bewusstsein von sich selbst entwickelt, um den schmerzhaften Abnabelungsprozess von ihrer Familie bewältigen zu können, das beschreibt sie in diesem ergreifenden und wunderbar poetischen Buch. » Befreit wirft ein Licht auf einen Teil unseres Landes, den wir zu oft übersehen. Tara Westovers eindringliche Erzählung — davon, einen Platz für sich selbst in der Welt zu finden, ohne die Verbindung zu ihrer Familie und ihrer geliebten Heimat zu verlieren — verdient es, weithin gelesen zu werden.« J.D. Vance Autor der »Hillbilly-Elegie«
