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.

    Water is in everything, connecting us all in one way or another, including our family’s wealth and health. But here’s the problem: water’s value went missing from the economy when the EPA came on the scene in the 1970s. The government gave water a much higher value, but it never disclosed that value to the American people. As a result, we have experienced water inflation ever since. Over time that hidden inflation placed a new burden on the financial dreams of the nation. The only way to close that gap and mitigate the rising seas and shrinking freshwater supplies is to put water back in our money. Ultimately we only have two choices on how the price of water will rise in our future: on our terms or someone else’s. Will we invest in our children and grandchildren through water, or pay tolls to corporations for it? Waconomics offers domestic and global solutions for citizens, corporations, and governments alike. We can save the American dream with water!  
    PROMISE
    Every dollar that Waconomics returns in profit directly goes to Water M. Mission, a nonprofit that stands up for water—that believes in World Water Day, every day! One hundred percent is allocated into a philanthropic water mutual fund to be used for effective projects and innovative water solutions around the globe. WM Mission was created to educate the fortunate, provide quality water for every nation and tribe, and use water as a catalyst for worldwide economic liberation.
