The Iron Men - The Workers Who Created the New Iron Age

Summary

The eighteenth century saw the second Iron Age. Practically everything was made of iron: the machines of the Industrial Revolution; bridges and the ships that went under them; the trains running on their rails; and the frames of the first skyscrapers. But progress was bought at a price and the working classes paid it. The knife grinders of Sheffield were lucky to reach their 30th birthday before their ruined lungs gave up, women chain makers were described as ‘The White Slaves of England’ and, in a time before health and safety regulations, each advance in technology risked a new kind of deadly accident. Tracking both the brilliant innovation of the period and the hardship and struggle that powered it, this is the story of how iron changed the world.

    Why do some people achieve great personal success, yet never succeed in building a business or making an impact in their organization? John C. Maxwell knows the answer. “The greatest leadership principle that I have ever learned in over twenty-five years of leadership,” says Maxwell, “is that those closest to the leader will determine the success level of that leader.” It’s not enough for a leader to have vision, energy, drive, and conviction. If you want to see your dream come to fruition, you must learn how to develop the leaders around you. Whether you’re the leader of a non-profit organization, small business, or Fortune 500 company, Developing the Leaders Around You can help you to take others to the limits of their potential and your organization to a whole new level.

     The marketing world isn't what it used to be. Simply creating a good product isn't enough, and standard advertisements now just get lost amongst all the others. To get people's attention and be truly successful, you've got to stand out and get noticed-just like a purple cow.
     
     
     
    Most of us wouldn't stop and stare at something mundane, like a herd of cows. But if one of those cows happened to be bright purple, it would draw attention far and wide. As an introduction to the modern marketing world, Purple Cow works on exactly that principle, teaching you how to create and market an extraordinary product that stands out from its ordinary competitors.
     
     
     
    You will learn:
     
     
     
    ·      That your best potential customers should be seeking you out, and not the other way around
     
    ·      Why catering your products and ads to the majority is the worst thing you can do
     
    ·      How to expand your business once you've created a successful product.
