My only criticism is that I wish somehow it could be more quickly updated (perhaps online? ) to include new components which are continuously becoming available.

Expanding a 20-page memo originally published in Inc. Magazine, Brown, with major credentials as a magazine editor (including Forbes and Inc. ) and an author (among his book titles is Customers for Life, 1990) , sets out to help us realize that desire. What he imparts is common sense. His three-step process to finding an agent starts with identifying the books with concepts close to yours, reading the acknowledgments, then contacting that agent. The list of questions to ask your editor begins with a query about the intended marketing plans. How he writes is pure entertainment, complete with editorial sidebars (courtesy of Ellen Kadin, acquisitions editor at AMACOM) , footnotes packed with laugh-out-loud information, and occasional illustrations that perk up the well-written text.

TEACHING IN THE KNOWLEDGE SOCIETY Education in the Age of Insecurity

By Hargreaves, Andy

Teachers College Press. Near Fine. 2003. First Edition. Softcover. 0807743593 . Excellent condition - pages are clean and tight. Cover has a little scuffing and very light corner curling, price sticker on rear. ; Professional Learning; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 240 pages; We are living in a defining moment, when the world in which teachers do their work is changing profoundly. In his latest book, Hargreaves proposes that we have a one-time chance to reshape the future of teaching and schooling and that we should seize this historic opportunity. Hargreaves sets out what it means to teach in the new knowledge society - to prepare young people for a world of creativity and flexibility and to protect them against the threats of mounting insecurity. He provides inspiring examples of schools that operate as creative and caring learning communities and shows how years of "soulless standardization" have seriously undermined similar attempts made by many nonaffluent schools. Hargreaves takes us beyond the dead-ends of standardization and divisiveness to a future in which all teaching can be a high-skill, creative, life-shaping mission because "the knowledge society requires nothing less."

JOINT VENTURING

By Paul W. Beamish

Charlotte, NC: Information Age Publishing. New. 2008. First Edition. Softcover. 9781593119652 . New book, no markings. 167 pages. B/w illustrations. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 167 pages; This short, reader-friendly book is about best practice in joint ventures: the factors and processes which lead to success. Every year, corporations establish thousands of joint ventures (JVs) , investing hundreds of billions of dollars. In fact, between 25% and 40% of all foreign investments take place via equity JVs. The use of JVs and strategic alliances has been rapidly growing. I've worked as a joint venture facilitator for Fortune 500 and other corporations for many years. The senior executives in these organizations often noted that the decision-making format I used with them would make a great book. This is it. The key purpose of the book is to demonstrate that joint ventures can work. They require however an open mind, and the willingness to work through a series of questions I provide. These relate to: testing the strategic logic; partnership and fit; shape and design; and operating the JV. Contrary to the perceptions of some, JVs can be just as profitable and survive just as long as wholly owned subsidiaries. They can in fact be effectively managed, and they are not going to cause a firm to lose its proprietary technology. Partnerships can work extremely well, and often, placing less emphasis on "control" is the way to go. If one is willing to acknowledge and respect that someone else (here a partner) has much to contribute, a stronger enterprise can result. True JVs can result in more stable and sustainable business, benefiting all partners, in whatever country they are located. The format of the book is intentionally conversational. It uses the Socratic method (question, answer, question, answer) which works so effectively in a case study classroom. Here the "classroom" is several business class seats on an international flight. This book is written for practicing managers and executives. Those contemplating the formation of a JV and those currently engaged in JVs will see improvement in the duration and performance of their collaborative ventures by following the recommended actions. A second audience is business schools and academics. The book is ideal for MBA, executive MBA and non-degree executive education courses or modules focused on JVs, alliances, cooperative strategies, etc. (*lower shipping options avail to some locations) [275-osl] .

LIVES IN CONTEXT The Art of Life History Research

By Ardra L. Cole

AltaMira Press. Very Good-. 2001. First Edition. Softcover. 0759101442 . Cover has light scuffing and light edge/corner wear. Pages are all intact and clan, however numerous pages have yellow highlighting, somewhat less towards rear of book. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 272 pages; The reflexive turn in qualitative research has transformed the process of doing life history research. No longer are research subjects examined through the lens of the all-knowing but supposedly invisible researcher. As Ardra Cole and Gary Knowles point out in this fresh introduction to conducting life history research, the process is now one of mutuality, empathy, sensitivity and caring. The authors carry the novice researcher through the steps of conducting life history research-- from conceptualizing the project to the various means of presenting results-- with an eye toward understanding the complex relationship between participant and researcher and how that shapes the project. In addition to examples from their own research, Cole and Knowles bring in the work of a dozen novice researchers who explain the challenges they faced in developing their own life history projects in a wide variety of settings. Well written, interesting, and pedagogically sound, LIVES IN CONTEXT is the ideal text for teaching life history research to students and an important reference for the bookshelf of all qualitative researchers.
