The Dilbert Principle (USED)

$4.99
More Info
The creator of "Dilbert," the fastest-growing comic strip in the nation (syndicated in nearly 1000 newspapers), takes a look at corporate America in all its glorious lunacy. Lavishly illustrated with "Dilbert" strips, these hilarious essays on incompetent bosses, management fads, bewildering technological changes and so much more, will make anyone who has ever worked in an office laugh out loud in recognition.

The Dilbert Principle: The most ineffective workers will be systematically moved to the place where they can do the least damage -- management.

Since 1989, Scott Adams has been illustrating this principle each day, lampooning the corporate world through "Dilbert," his enormously popular comic strip. In Dilbert, the potato-shaped, abuse-absorbing hero of the strip, Adams has given voice to the millions of Americans buffeted by the many adversities of the workplace.

Now he takes the next step, attacking corporate culture head-on in this lighthearted series of essays. Packed with more than 100 hilarious cartoons, these 25 chapters explore the zeitgeist of ever-changing management trends, overbearing egos, management incompetence, bottomless bureaucracies, petrifying performance reviews, three-hour meetings, the confusion of the information superhighway and more. With sharp eyes, and an even sharper wit, Adams exposes -- and skewers -- the bizarre absurdities of everyday corporate life. Readers will be convinced that he must be spying on their bosses, "The Dilbert Principle" rings so true!

    The Silver Lining; An Innovation Playbook for Uncertain Times (USED)

    $4.99
    More Info
    Experts agree: The turbulence triggered by the economic shock of 2008 constitutes the "new normal." Unfortunately, too many managers have become paralyzed by it, capable only of slashing costs indiscriminately.

    Though examining spending during recessions makes sense, the smartest executives do much more. As Scott Anthony reveals in The Silver Lining, these leaders continue innovating--by stopping ineffective initiatives, changing key business processes, and starting more productive behaviors. Result? Their companies emerge from downturns stronger than ever.

    Providing a wealth of ideas, tools, and examples from diverse industries, Anthony explains how to safeguard your company's profitability during even the toughest recessions. You'll discover how to:

    -Prune your innovation and business portfolio to liberate resources for more promising initiatives

    - Adopt a radical new market-segmentation scheme that helps you re-feature your offerings to reduce costs while delivering new value to customers

    - Reinvent your innovation process to drive fresh growth

    - Mitigate innovation risks by conducting strategic experiments and forging alliances with customers and other external entities

    - Appeal to increasingly value-conscious customers to fend off low-cost attackers

    In today's brutal economic climate, executives must pare costs to the bone while planting and nurturing seeds for tomorrow's growth. The Silver Lining explains how to master this seemingly impossible challenge.

    $15.00
    More Info

    WALL STREET WOMAN: A DATING LIFE IS A BESTIARY OF THE MEN IN THE ORBIT OF A SINGLE PROFESSIONAL WOMAN IN NEW YORK CITY. 

    This authoritative guide profiles men found almost exclusively in Manhattan, including the jet-setting Don Juan Dinero, the hip downtown artist The Visionary and the driven workaholic Treadmill. Others are universal types who are abundant in the big city: ladies' man Jack of Hearts, social climbing Club Cadet, ambitious Boy Wonder, aristocratic romantic Major Gelatin. 

    Some of these guys merely pass through town, like your high school boyfriend Teen Crush and the eternal dreamer Cloud Voyager. No guide would be complete without the men who are found anywhere and everywhere, such as the recently divorced Born Again Bachelor, very married philanderer Hopalong Husband, disappointed ex-professional Trainwreck and the deadly dull Dialtone. 

    Each man is thoroughly described so you can immediately recognize him - how he discusses his interests, presents his accomplishments, tells you he likes you, asks you to bed, and talks about your future together. Good reasons to date him are also proposed. 

    Finally, Mr. Right is celebrated in glorious detail. He's clearly worth waiting for. 

    When anyone asks, "Why aren't you married?" tell her to buy this book.

    You Don't Own Me; How Mattel v. MGA Entertainment Exposed Barbie's Dark Side (USED)

    $5.99
    More Info

    When Carter Bryant began designing what would become the billion-dollar line of Bratz dolls, he was taking time off from his job at Mattel, where he designed outfits for Barbie. Later, back at Mattel, he sold his concept for Bratz to rival company MGA. Law professor Orly Lobel reveals the colorful story behind the ensuing decade-long court battle.

    This entertaining and provocative work pits audacious MGA against behemoth Mattel, shows how an idea turns into a product, and explores the two different versions of womanhood, represented by traditional all-American Barbie and her defiant, anti-establishment rival--the only doll to come close to outselling her. In an era when workers may be asked to sign contracts granting their employers the rights to and income resulting from their ideas--whether conceived during work hours or on their own time--Lobel's deeply researched story is a riveting and thought-provoking contribution to the contentious debate over creativity and intellectual property.
