      The curmudgeon's guide to getting ahead : dos and don'ts of right behavior, tough thinking, clear writing, and living a good life
      Charles Murray.
      A "fussy--and entertaining--book on the hidden rules of the road in the workplace, and in life, from the standpoint of an admonishing but encouraging workplace grouch and taskmaster. Why the curmudgeon? The fact is, most older, more senior people over us in the workplace are closet curmudgeons. In today's politically correct world, they may hide their displeasure over your misuse of grammar, or your overly familiar use of their first name without an express invitation. But don't be fooled by their pleasant demeanor. Underneath, they are judging and evaluating your every move and utterance"-- Provided by publisher.

    • Thrive : the third metric to redefining success and creating a life of well-being, wisdom, and wonder
      Thrive : the third metric to redefining success and creating a life of well-being, wisdom, and wonder
      Arianna Huffington.
      Our relentless pursuit of the two traditional metrics of success--money and power--has led to an epidemic of burnout and stress-related illnesses, and an erosion in the quality of our relationships, family life, and, ironically, our careers. In a commencement address Arianna Huffington gave at Smith College in the spring of 2013, she likened our drive for money and power to two legs of a three-legged stool. They may hold us up temporarily, but sooner or later we're going to topple over. We need a third leg--a third metric for defining success--to truly thrive. That third metric, she writes in "Thrive," includes our well-being, our ability to draw on our intuition and inner wisdom, our sense of wonder, and our capacity for compassion and giving. Drawing on the latest groundbreaking research and scientific findings in the fields of psychology, sports, sleep, and physiology that show the profound and transformative effects of meditation, mindfulness, unplugging, and giving, Arianna shows us the way to a revolution in our culture, our thinking, our workplace, and our lives.
