Summary

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, promoted as a personal development and self-improvement book. Hill writes that he was inspired by a suggestion from business magnate and later-philanthropist Andrew Carnegie.

While the book's title and much of the text concerns increasing income, the author insists that his philosophy can help people succeed in any line of work, to do and be anything they can imagine. First published during the Great Depression, the book by Hill's death in 1970 had sold more than 20 million copies. By 2015 more than 100 million copies had been sold worldwide.

It remains the biggest seller of Napoleon Hill's books. BusinessWeek magazine's Best-Seller List ranked it the sixth best-selling paperback business book 70 years after it was published.  Think and Grow Rich is listed in John C. Maxwell's A Lifetime "Must Read" Books List.

    ‘ADVERTISING IS A PEOPLE BUSINESS. SO IS CANNIBALISM’ This is the book that gives you the naked varnished truth about the glamorous, cut-throat world of advertising in the 1980s, where the goals are money, sex, power, awards – and finding a great new place for lunch. Everything is here, from the disaster behind the making of those familiar TV commercials to the bitchy in-fighting (‘The Orient Express leaves for Venice at noon. Be under it’); how to get in, how to get out, how to market Old Thames Water twenty-six classic ways; all the dark secrets of that strange trade, whose slogans and images are our modern myths. For, as Oscar Wilde said, ‘Only fools don’t judge by appearances.’ Plus! The slogans they couldn’t use (‘People are sticking to Kleenex’, ‘Hail Jaffa, King of the Juice’, ‘Fly to Bangkok and Phuket’), Great Hiccups and Cock-Ups, the Advertising Cost of Living Index, and much, much more can be found in this book from former ad man Martyn Forrester.

    NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 
    #1 Washington Post Bestseller  
    There’s Santa Claus, Shakespeare, Mickey Mouse, the Bible, and then there’s Star Wars. Nothing quite compares to sitting down with a young child and hearing the sound of John Williams’s score as those beloved golden letters fill the screen. In this fun, erudite, and often moving book, Cass R. Sunstein explores the lessons of Star Wars as they relate to childhood, fathers, the Dark Side, rebellion, and redemption. As it turns out, Star Wars also has a lot to teach us about constitutional law, economics, and political uprisings. 
    In rich detail, Sunstein tells the story of the films’ wildly unanticipated success and explores why some things succeed while others fail. Ultimately, Sunstein argues, Star Wars is about freedom of choice and our never-ending ability to make the right decision when the chips are down. Written with buoyant prose and considerable heart, The World According to Star Wars shines a bright new light on the most beloved story of our time.

    One of today’s most successful entrepreneurs shares his story “of inspiration and information [that] will inspire you to push yourself to the next level” (Stedman Graham, businessman, speaker, and author of Identity Leadership).   Terry Giles, “the man behind the scenes who litigated—and sometimes mitigated—some of the most sensationally nasty celebrity and political dramas of the last several decades” (The Texas Tribune), attributes his own success to being part of “the fifteen percent” of people who are able to rise above despair and succeed against all odds. Using examples from his career and life—defending child sex abuse victims, his involvement in Monica Lewinsky’s trial, and even managing Dr. Ben Carson’s 2016 presidential campaign—he illustrates these ideas in action. In each chapter, you’ll learn valuable skills, including fearlessness, embracing underdog status, visualizing the future, and positive thinking—and proving that you do not have to be a victim of bad circumstances to adopt the superpowers of “the fifteen percent.”   Entertaining, inspiring, and full of useful insights, The Fifteen Percent will help you overcome whatever’s holding you back, so you can achieve lasting success.   “A tour de force that encapsulates a lifetime of wisdom and service that exemplifies what it is to truly live the American Dream . . . a surefire recipe for outlandish success—I know; because I have been blessed to count Terry among my closest mentors and friends for over thirty years.” —Armstrong Williams, broadcast entrepreneur and syndicated columnist   “A powerful and balanced account of his personal and professional journeys . . . it truly exemplifies his vision, courage, kindness, humility, and old-fashioned grit.” —Robert J. Brown, author of You Can’t Go Wrong Doing Right

    Empowerment Takes More Than a Minute tells the story of a young manager whose attempts to turn his troubled company around through traditional top-down, command-and-control management are failing. Reluctantly, he contacts an expert in empowerment, even though he feels like he's already tried that too. Step by step, the expert helps him understand why his past and present efforts have fallen short and exactly what he needs to do to create an empowered workforce. The process as it unfolds is complex, paradoxical and counterintuitive -but well worth the effort.
    The new introduction dispels the notion that empowerment is a bygone fad. No matter what its name, the essential concept-that organizations can achieve extraordinary results by recognizing and taking advantage of the skills, experience, and knowledge already existing in the organization-will always be relevant.
    The new epilogue describes obstacles companies have encountered and overcome and outlines empowerment strategies that have proved successful during the fifteen years the authors have been consulting, researching, and refining these concepts.
    Although sometimes arduous, the journey to empowerment is well worth making. In fact, unleashing the power of people in an organization may be the only way to continue to do business in a competitive, complicated marketplace.
