Summary

The fault line -- that dangerous, unstable seam in the economy where powerful innovations and savage competition meet and create market-shattering tremors. Every company lives on it; no manager can control it.  
In the original edition of Living on the Fault Line, Geoffrey Moore presented a compelling argument for using shareholder value (or share price) as the key driver in management decisions. Moore now revisits his argument in the post-Internet bubble world, proving that the methods he espouses are more germane than ever and showing companies how to use them to survive and thrive in today's demanding economy.  
Extending the themes of Crossing the Chasm and Inside the Tornado, his first two books on the dynamics of the high-tech markets, Moore shows why sensitivity to stock price is the single most important lever for managing in the future, both as a leading indicator of shifts in competitive advantage and as an employee motivator for making necessary changes in organizations heretofore impervious to change.  
This revised and updated edition includes: A deeper emphasis on core versus context, which has emerged as the key distinction in allocating resources to improve shareholder value A new Competitive Advantage Grid that will aid managers in achieving and sustaining competitive advantage, the most important component in managing for shareholder value An expanded Value Discipline Model as it relates to the Competitive Advantage Grid Analysis of the powerful new trend toward core/context analysis and outsourcing production duties Updated models of organizational change for each stage of market development 
As disruptive forces continue to buffet the marketplace and rattle the staid practices of the past, Moore offers a brilliant set of navigational tools to help meet today's most compelling management challenges.

    ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
    Joseph Murphy was born in Ireland, the son of a private boy's school headmaster and raised a Roman Catholic. He studied for the priesthood and joined the Jesuits. In his twenties, an experience with healing prayer led him to leave the Jesuits and move to the United States, where he became a pharmacist in New York (having a degree in chemistry by that time). Here he attended the Church of the Healing Christ (part of the Church of Divine Science), where Emmet Fox had become minister in 1931.
    In the mid 1940s, he moved to Los Angeles, where he met Religious Science founder Ernest Holmes, and was ordained into Religious Science by Holmes in 1946, thereafter teaching at the Institute of Religious Science. A meeting with Divine Science Association president Erwin Gregg led to him being reordained into Divine Science, and he became the minister of the Los Angeles Divine Science Church in 1949, which he built into one of the largest New Thought congregations in the country. In the next decade, Murphy married, earned a PhD in psychology from the University of Southern California and started writing. After his first wife died in 1976, he remarried to a fellow Divine Science minister who was his longstanding secretary. He died in 1981.

    Mention interviews, and the usual response is one of fear (to varying degrees) or boredom (“oh no, not another interview!”). However for most jobs of any worth, it is a process which you must go through (unless you happen to have an important relative who is in the company you wish to work for, and who is able to bring you in, which is not often).  
    More often than not, a candidate who is skilled in bringing out the best of himself/herself during the interview process will easily be selected for the job over a more qualified candidate with poorer interview skills. It is the packaging and the presentation which matters most, as the interviewer only gets to see you and hear you for about 20 minutes on average. There are sometimes second or even third interviews, but this usually involves different interviewers, and your interview skills are thereby taxed even further.  
    Excellent interview skills will put you in the best position to snag that dream job, and these skills can be trained and practised. I have interviewed many candidates before in my stint in various companies in different industries, and has also gone through numerous interviews before (no thanks to the bad job market in some periods whereby I was looking for a new job). These experiences have greatly enriched my understanding of the interview process, and I have covered as many aspects of this process as possible in this book.   
    Remember that the interview process is inherently a human interaction activity, whereby the impression of a candidate is the key determining factor of the hiring decision. And it is to this end in mind that this book is geared fully towards.

    This book summary and analysis was created for individuals who want to extract the essential contents and are too busy to go through the full version. This book is not intended to replace the original book. Instead, we highly encourage you to buy the full version.
     
    Renowned psychologist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics Daniel Kahneman shows us how the mind has two systems that drive how we think. In Thinking, Fast and Slow, the first system—System 1—is the fast, intuitive, and emotional system while the second system—System 2—is the slower, more deliberate, and logical system. Kahneman shows the impact of overconfidence in making decisions, the difficulties of predicting happiness in the future, and the profound effect of having cognitive biases. These can be understood based on how the two systems control our judgments and decisions.
     
    Kahneman shows us when our intuitions can be helpful and when it can’t as well as how we can get the benefits of slow thinking. He gives us practical insights into how we make our choices both in business and in our personal lives as well as what techniques we can use in order to protect ourselves against the lapses that can cause us trouble. Given the National Academy of Sciences Best Book Award, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and The New York Times Book Review as one of the ten best books of 2011, Thinking, Fast and Slow is a book that would certainly affect how we think and hows we live our lives.
