    Born under a bad sign? Of course you were, we all were. In this case Virgo the Virgin, the zodiac’s uber nitpicker. Everyone knows their bright starry self, but the Darkside Zodiac reveals what you are like on the bad days. You will deny it all, being Virgo, and back up your denial with a truckload of incontrovertible data; but secretly you know it’s true and will be forced to scourge your soul with metaphorical clorox. Bliss.  
    What can you expect in this short, yet vitriol-packed e-volume? Prepare to break bad. Here’s the checklist  (partial - you think we give this stuff away?) 
    * Bitch factor? You got it. 
    Likewise
    * Annoying habits 
    * Deadly sin of choice 
    * Your love life. Hah. 
    * Your criminal career 
    * Your road rage
    
    Plus clever charts showing just how incompatible you are with everybody else in every conceivable aspect of life. Of course it’s not your fault. It never is. Find out which planet/s is/are responsible for your cosmic awfulness, and blame it/them. And you get to find out who famously shares your sector of the darkness, just so you have a role model if you begin to stray towards the light.  
    Until now only available to the discerning in tree-based form, the darkside has gone e-side so you can read all about your dark self without having to lift a finger to turn the page. Buy one for yourself (and wallow in delicious shame) or, even better, for your friends/enemies/frenemies/office nemesis and send it to them anonymously. That would be very darkside.

    United Parcel Service (UPS) is a household name that customers and investors alike hold in high regard. Who hasn't been delighted by a right-on-time delivery, one of the 18 million UPS makes every day? Founded over a hundred years ago, UPS has moved steadily up the Fortune 500 while so many other corporations have disappeared. What's the company's secret? Just ask a driver!Ron Wallace was a UPS delivery driver for six years before he began rising through the ranks, ultimately becoming president of UPS International. In other companies, that might be extraordinary, but at UPS it's par for the course. UPS has a unique corporate culture. It's like a family. Package loaders call executives by their first names and vice versa. The company almost always promotes from within. Lifetime employment is common. Most employees own UPS stock. Wallace credits the company's success—and his own—to its culture of “we, not me.” As he puts it, working at UPS gave him a PhD in teamwork. Instead of writing a typical business memoir that celebrates the leader as celebrity, Wallace shares vivid stories that focus on the people he worked with, the challenges they overcame, and the simple principles and practices that make up the UPS way. He exhorts his readers to grow their people, not just their business plans. The leadership style described in this book is simple and direct—and it works. The straightforward and easy-to-understand lessons provide a blueprint for an individual or company to build on past successes and adapt to future challenges. This is a must-read for anyone aspiring to become a great leader.
