How to Be Rich – Free eBook Download

How to Be Rich

Move over, Donald Trump. Your version of wealth – being flashy, gaudy, arrogant and boisterous – is not what billionaire J. Paul Getty had in mind. Getty was a principled man who advocated cooperating with labor unions and working to improve society. According to Getty, being “rich” comes with the responsibility of having good character and a positive attitude. He wrote this book in 1960, before financial engineering and leverage emerged, thus enabling the get-rich-quick schemes that funded many selfish, easy-money multimillionaires. From his era’s vantage point, Getty discusses new management techniques, the quest for status, and the difference between being rich and being wealthy. getAbstract recognizes the timeless value of Getty’s knowledge and the enduring applicability of his business advice. He offers a refreshing perspective in this inspirational business biography.

How To Be An Instant Expert

If you’re an exec whose position requires any writing at all, it might occur to you that before you write an article or a speech you should jump on the Internet and do a thorough topic search – an original suggestion from author Stephen Spignesi. Thanks. You might even already know that you have to check reference materials at the library – another handy nugget of advice. But if your background is in technical expertise, not in word crafting, and you find yourself responsible for actually writing things – a prospect as enticing to you as root canal – then this book is for you. It organizes ideas concisely and simply (Almost too simply: Any sixth grader could use it). While some content appeals only to freelancers (like a talk with a publishing-house acquisitions editor), getAbstract recommends the guidance and direction this book gives to would-be or must-be writers who are uncomfortable with writing. You know who you are.

The Granularity of Growth – Free eBook Download

The Granularity of Growth

This is a useful, methodical book. Rather than offering general platitudes on growth and strategy, Patrick Viguerie, Sven Smit and Mehrdad Baghai offer data-driven ways to generate growth. However, neither the approach nor the book is easy. The approach requires leaders to undertake hard, detailed work with rigorous honesty as they examine their companies and markets more specifically (that’s where the granular detail comes in) than most will want to. The authors are firm on the necessity of maintaining this intense level of awareness as markets change around you. The book requires a bit of patience, as the authors sometimes get overly invested in tiered structures, pacing readers through different categories of growth directions and structures that become a bit too abstract and technical. That aside, anyone looking for specific ways to address growth will find this helpful. getAbstract recommends it to CEOs, strategists and students of business growth.

Governing for Prosperity – Free eBook Download

Governing for Prosperity

Why do some nations thrive while others seem trapped in a cycle of poverty, instability and corruption? The 14 contributors to this anthology agree on one answer to this question: the rule of law. While the developed West spends billions of dollars promoting democracy in developing nations, the authors suggest that democracy itself does not bring about prosperity. In terms of economic growth, stability and predictability are more important than democracy, they argue. As evidence, they contrast wealthy authoritarian regimes like Singapore with poor and corrupt democracies like India. Some readers might find the implications of such conclusions alarming. That’s all the more reason to read this book, which getAbstract recommends to anyone with an interest in economic development, public policy and the global political order.

Developing Competency to Manage Diversity – Free eBook Download

Developing Competency to Manage Diversity

Taylor Cox Jr. and Ruby L. Beale offer readings, case studies and structured activities for developing individual and organizational diversity skills. The readings often focus on specific groups, but the underlying ideas can easily be extended to others. By focusing on the economic benefits of diversity management, the authors make a persuasive case that these ideas are strategically relevant, especially for companies that are trying to compete in the global economy. Some of the ideas are complex and take some real study, but they are presented clearly and concisely. The book offers little original research, but that is not the authors’ goal. They mean to unite existing research and to put those ideas into action – a task that they perform very well. getabstract recommends this book to human resource professionals, managers who must handle diverse workforces (especially executives who work outside their home country) and anyone struggling with diversity in the workplace.
