Summary

We have always learned through stories, and in Game of Thrones on Business managers learn from the parallels drawn between HBO’s global phenomenon and today’s business world. The authors also use stories and characters from the series to breathe life into management theory. Readers will discover:
• What Tywin Lannister has in common with Steve Jobs;
• Why Ned Stark should have had a scenario-planning meeting;
• What Daenerys Targaryen can teach us about servant leadership;
• How to network like Littlefinger;
• Why behaving like Jon Snow will just antagonise your boss.
Game of Thrones may look like a story that is as far removed from modern business as is possible, but look a little closer and you’ll notice that the differences are merely superficial: that hostile small council meeting is a boardroom showdown, Daenerys Targaryen is the business ingenue you can’t afford to disregard and the White Walkers are a slowly advancing threat to your company’s survival.
If you think you can stomach the cut and thrust of business this book will show you the insider tricks for success and the hidden pitfalls to watch out for. But remember, if you want to go all the way it takes full commitment: when you play the game of thrones you win or you die. There is no middle ground.

    Confessions of a Wall Street...

    Although he was a suburban husband and father, living a far different life than the “Wolf of Wall Street,” Michael Kimelman had a good run as the cofounder of a hedge fund. He had left a cushy yet suffocating job at a law firm to try his hand at the high-risk life of a proprietary trader — and he did pretty well for himself. But it all came crashing down in the wee hours of November 5, 2009, when the Feds came to his door—almost taking the door off its hinges. While his wife and children were sequestered to a bedroom, Kimelman was marched off in embarrassment in view of his neighbors and TV crews who had been alerted in advance. He was arrested as part of a huge insider trading case, and while he was offered a “sweetheart” no-jail probation plea, he refused, maintaining his innocence.The lion’s share of Confessions of a Wall Street Insider was written while Kimelman was an inmate at Lewisburg Penitentiary. In nearly two years behind bars, he reflected on his experiences before incarceration—rubbing elbows and throwing back far too many cocktails with financial titans and major figures in sports and entertainment (including Leonardo DiCaprio, Alex Rodriguez, Ben Bernanke, and Alan Greenspan, to drop a few names); making and losing hundreds of thousands of dollars in daily gambles on the Street; getting involved with the wrong people, who eventually turned on him; realizing that none of that mattered in the end. As he writes: “Stripped of family, friends, time, and humanity, if there’s ever a place to give one pause, it’s prison . . . Tomorrow is promised to no one.” In Confessions of a Wall Street Insider, he reveals the triumphs, pains, and struggles, and how, in the end, it just might have made him a better person.Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Arcade, Good Books, Sports Publishing, and Yucca imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs.

    The LIBOR affair has been described as the ‘biggest
    banking scandal in history’, a deception affecting not only banks but also
    corporations, pension funds and ordinary people. 
    
    
     
    But was this just the tip of the iceberg?
    Was the scandal the work of a few ‘bad apples’ or an inevitable result of a
    financial system rotten to its core? Labelled ‘one of the world's most infamous
    rogue traders’ in the wake of a mis-marking scandal, Alexis Stenfors went on to
    rebuild his life and now guides us through the shadowy world of modern banking,
    providing an insider’s account of the secret practices – including the manipulation
    of foreign exchange rates – which have allowed banks to profit from systematic
    deception. Containing remarkable and often shocking insights derived from his
    own experiences in the dealing room, as well as his spectacular fall from grace
    at Merrill Lynch, Barometer of Fear draws back the curtain to
    a realm that for too long has remained hidden from public view.
