Summary

Your project went off without a hitch--but somebody else got the credit...You averted a crisis brilliantly--but no one noticed...You came to the meeting with a sensational idea--but it was ignored until someone else said the same thing... 
HOW CAN YOU GET CREDIT & GET AHEAD? 
In her extraordinary international bestseller, You Just Don't Understand, Deborah Tannen transformed forever the way we look at intimate relationships between women and men. Now she turns her keen ear and observant eye toward the workplace--where the ways in which men and women communicate can determine who gets heard, who gets ahead, and what gets done. 
An instant classic, Talking From 9 to 5 brilliantly explains women's and men's conversational rituals--and the language barriers we unintentionally erect in the business world. It is a unique and invaluable guide to recognizing the verbal power games and miscommunications that cause good work to be underappreciated or go unnoticed--an essential tool for promoting more positive and productive professional relationships among men and women.

    This work offers a summary of the book "RICH DAD'S GUIDE TO INVESTING: What The Rich Invest In That The Poor And Middle Class Do Not!" by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter.
    Rich Dad's Guide To Investing shows that the rich focus on positioning themselves advantageously as one of three general types of investors: the sophisticated investors, the inside investors and the ultimate investors. 
    So what specifically do the rich invest in that the poor and middle class do not? The rich invest in three specific areas: Education (the rich concentrate on gaining the mindset of the sophisticated investor), Experience (the rich learn how to build strong businesses which run without their handson involvement), and Excessive Cash (the rich have multiple sources of income – to meet their expenses and provide surplus cash for investing).
    Robert Kiyosaki believes that changing your view on investing makes it possible for anyone to become rich. He adds: "Rich Dad's Guide To Investing is a longterm guide for anyone wanting to become a rich investor and invest in what the rich invest in. As the title states, it is a "guide" and offers no guarantees… just as my rich dad offered me no guarantees… only guidance."

  • After the Fall - Saving Capitalism from Wall Street—and Washington - cover

    After the Fall - Saving...

    Robust financial markets support capitalism, they don't imperil it. But in 2008, Washington policymakers were compelled to replace private risk-takers in the financial system with government capital so that money and credit flows wouldn't stop, precipitating a depression.Washington's actions weren't the start of government distortions in the financial industry, Nicole Gelinas writes, but the natural result of 25 years' worth of such distortions.In the early eighties, modern finance began to escape reasonable regulations, including the most important regulation of all, that of the marketplace. The government gradually adopted a "too big to fail" policy for the largest or most complex financial companies, saving lenders to failing firms from losses. As a result, these companies became impervious to the vital market discipline that the threat of loss provides.Adding to the problem, Wall Street created financial instruments that escaped other reasonable limits, including gentle constraints on speculative borrowing and requirements for the disclosure of important facts.The financial industry eventually posed an untenable risk to the economy -- a risk that culminated in the trillions of dollars' worth of government bailouts and guarantees that Washington scrambled starting in late 2008.Even as banks and markets seem to heal, lenders to financial companies continue to understand that the government would protect them in the future if necessary. This implicit guarantee harms economic growth, because it forces good companies to compete against bad.History and recent events make clear what Washington must do.First, policymakers must reintroduce market discipline to the financial world. They can do so by re-creating a credible, consistent way in which big financial companies can fail, with lenders taking their warranted losses. Second, policymakers can reapply prudent financial regulations so that markets, and the economy, can better withstand inevitable excesses of optimism and pessimism. Sensible regulations have worked well in the past and can work well again.As Gelinas explains in this richly detailed book, adequate regulation of financial firms and markets is a prerequisite for free-market capitalism -- not a barrier to it.
