In this revolutionary book Bill Grace presents an innovative leadership model designed to cultivate a world-view suited for today's interconnected global society. He offers a framework for people aspiring to live for the good of others because they know that is ultimately the only way to thrive. Through concrete exercises, this book helps readers to determine their deepest values, which Bill proves are the heart and soul of leadership. He then demonstrates how living by these ideals allows the advancement of the common good. Readers learn a practical model for integrating ethics into everyday life and how to make choices based on concern for all. Bill's ground-breaking approach emphasises attention to justice, care, and inclusiveness, and stresses the urgent need to adopt these practices immediately. The book presents seven principles at the core of this new leadership model. These include traditionally valued leadership traits, such as commitment and vision, and expand on them to include such important practices as seeking out the perspectives of the marginalised, welcoming unpopular points of view, and cultivating the leader's genuine expression and voice.

From Elvis to the Beatles, from Michael Jackson to Marilyn Manson, rock stars claim to have seen, communed with, been inspired by, and sometimes even descended from extraterrestrials. Alien Rock is an irreverent, illuminating, all-access pass to the stars' unearthly encounters--some friendly, some frightening, and some frankly bizarre, including: • The birth of Elvis was marked by the appearance of a mysterious blue light over his house. • In August 1974, John Lennon spied a UFO from the window of the penthouse he shared with then-girlfriend, May Pang. • Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithfull encountered a luminous cigar-shaped mothership while camping in the English countryside in 1968. • Jimi Hendrix told a friend, "I am a spiritual messenger, sent here from another place." Whether you're a UFO skeptic or a true believer, Alien Rock provides a fascinating new perspective on the long, strange trip that is rock 'n' roll history, and suggests that, wherever the road takes us, we may not be traveling alone.

In Your Brain at Work, David Rock takes readers inside the heads—literally—of a modern two-career couple as they mentally process their workday to reveal how we can better organize, prioritize, remember, and process our daily lives. Rock, the author of Quiet Leadership and Personal Best, shows how it’s possible for this couple, and thus the reader, not only to survive in today’s overwhelming work environment but succeed in it—and still feel energized and accomplished at the end of the day.

"The Black Rock, a desert realm almost the size of Delaware but scarcely a hundred miles north of Reno, embraces mile-high vertical mountains and one of the earth's flattest, most barren salt pans; boiling hot springs and freezing winter cold; plants that have evolved to survive the severest drought and lush pockets of rich grasses. Its bewildering environments startle our senses with a raw physical intensity that comes through in Goin's photographs and Starrs's informed text.

This book provides a new, necessary and valuable approach to the consideration of risk in underground engineering projects constructed within rock masses. There are Chapters on uncertainty and risk, rock engineering systems, rock fractures and rock stress, the design of a repository for radioactive waste, plus two major case examples relating to the headrace tunnels and caverns for a hydroelectric project. These Chapters highlight in detail the authors’ new rock engineering risk approach, especially how monitoring during construction can significantly reduce the construction risks. The book is particularly timely given the current increasing emphasis on geo-engineering safety, accountability and sustainability—which requires stricter attention to risk and greater reliability than ever before. Written by two eminent authors, the two most recent past-Presidents of the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISRM), this modern and well-illustrated guide on Rock Engineering Risk complements the authors’ previous 2011 book on Rock Engineering Design, also published by Taylor & Francis. The book will benefit engineers, contractors, clients, researchers, lecturers and advanced students who are concerned with rock engineering projects in civil, mining, geological and construction engineering worldwide.

Conglomerate Rock argues that while it is becoming easier to see and hear artists from a handful of transnational corporations, access to music is becoming more dispersed, expensive, and difficult to acquire. The music industry is creating a new distribution infrastructure by dividing access to exclusive releases through different subscription services, hardware, and new media like audio DVDs in order to maximize profits.
