5-0 out of 5 stars This book pays for itself
If you read and follow the principles in this book you will make enough money on your trades to pay for this book many times over. I have been active in the market for years (Averaging <20% return a year) and I agree with this author completely having lived out the greed, fear, and mistakes he talks about.Read this book and save yourself a lot of unnecessary losses.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the top TA books
This book is a gem amongst average books.I've read about 100 Technical Analysis books... and I've gone back and re-read this one 6 times.Very important.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Official SAT study Guide
Any student preparing to take the SAT should not go with out this book. The Book provides accurate practice test created by the Test makers (ETS). But don't count on this book to give you excellent review. Review for the SAT is very brief. also this book is no good without the solutions manual which you could buy on amazon. so without the soulutions manual you won't be doing anything but just taking the practice test and not knowing where you went wrong. anyways good luck!

4-0 out of 5 stars A must-have for your SAT prep; but no accurate diagnostic tools
Official materials are always the most important for the SAT, and this is currently the only source available for authentic SAT questions. The questions and essay topics contained in this book give a nice overview of what an SAT-taker will see on test day, so it would be wise to complete and review as many questions as you can in this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A 'must have' for all leaders.
If you take your job as a business leader seriously, this book is a 'must have'. As a business coach I use it in my practice with great success. For leaders (and managers who think they are leaders) and their teams it's an eye-opener. It gives insight in what it takes to turn a good team into a great team, and what great leadership is all about. If you want to be more effective as a leader and take your team to the highest level of readiness, read this book. It will change your life....and of those you lead.

2-0 out of 5 stars Management of Organizational Behavior
Not too bad as these books go but a tremendous amount of verbiage explaining the obvious. Excellent example of turning simple concepts in complex charts and definitions. I would imagine that people in the field love this hyperbole but it's BS to me and pretty much a waste of time to drudge though all of it.

I recommend this to managers as much as students.Read more

I only had 2 weeks to study for the GMAT.I bought three books to help me, all of which were highly rated on Amazon.They were:
5-0 out of 5 stars The Inside Scoop
No short (even at 560 large pages plus a CD) book is going to replace what you should have learned over many years of classwork. You should know the basic rules in English, mathematics and the rest. Instead, this book concentrates on the testing aspects: what areas does the test cover, how is it administered, what is the format of the test, things like that.
4-0 out of 5 stars It's OKbut it's not enough
Although I liked the way the authors went through and reviewed the topics I needed for the exam, I did not execute most of their strategies during the actual exam.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just what we needed!
This book hits the "heart" of what many managers miss in planning change initiatives.This helps us remember that change isn't all number and business decisions.It's the people.I was able to immediately apply some of the ideas and resteered a change initiative successfully. Now all of my supervisors are reading and learning.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fundamentals for helping an organization undergo change successfully
This book is the textbook for how an organization can successfully lead with change.I have used the 8-step method with various organizations and successfully 'seen-felt-changed' for the better.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Change Management Book I've Read to Date
I'm now in a "Change Management" role with my work, and decided to read some texts on the subject to further my understanding of the topic.Of those books that I've read, this one has clearly been the most helpful.Kotter articulates the steps of change in a way that connected with me, and made it real with a number of relevant examples.It's not onerous to read (<200 pages) but equally isn't "lightweight."While I would never recommend reading only a single book on the topic,I would definitely recommend that this be one of the books you read!

Excellent reference to assist Six Sigma users with an invaluable tool.Provide easy desktop reference to how to use MINITAB in the context of Six Sigma.

There was definitely some helpful information in this handy guide.I especially liked the summaries and review questions in the back of each section.

5-0 out of 5 stars The New "Pocket Guide" for Six-Sigma Black Belts.
This is a much more powerful resource for making good use of Minitab and Six-Sigma than many people may realize.However, a highly experienced statistician or someone with extensive experience in a Six-Sigma culture may find this book to be fairly basic.This is likely the case in a technical or manufacturing environment.In contrast, a new Six Sigma practitioner or someone working in a service environment in which process analysis might not be as sophisticated will consider this book an absolute gem!

3-0 out of 5 stars Handy, not new.
As a trainer, speaker and coach on the topic of building your business by referral, I have read and own most books written on the topics of networking, virtual networking, working a room, and connecting so of course I had to have this one!
5-0 out of 5 stars Book Builds Budding Banter (or the right way of networking)
I never considered myself a sales person. Yes, I've heard all the talk that we do sell ourselves every day from what we do on the job to meeting people to the offering of Girl Scout cookies every year at the office. But I never really imagined my being able to just go up to folks and getting to know them first.
5-0 out of 5 stars Right On!
As in all of Gitomer's books, they're simple but not simple minded.It is simply about understanding, cultivating and appreciating a connection.Be genuine, and don't short change those who you immediately don't see can "do something" for you. Give first and give again.Love his insights on nonprofits and trade orgs-- he shows where most fail, they join and wait for the networking to begin.You must participate, and I'm a big believer in participation should be at the board level.From years of various board positions, that is where the movers and shakers are.You'll appreciate his great personal life examples.You'll understand what it means to "walk your talk".This is one of the best books on networking.I'm buying several copies for clients and friends. ...

Editorial Review

If you are tired of struggling to make ends meet but don't know a 401(k) from Special K, this book is for you. Aimed specifically at "Generation Broke"--those in their twenties and thirties who are working yet buried in credit card debt and student loans--this user-friendly guide offers a clear introduction to practical investing and money management techniques that can turn even a dismal financial situation around. Bestselling author Suze Orman has a knack for taking the fear out of money matters, and in Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars and the money keeps on coming!
This book really helped me to learn the keys to financial freedom. It explained the rules and helped me to not follow in certian traps with money and how I view it. I really liked it and would recommend other books such THINK LIKE A BILLIONAIRE by Scot Anderson and RETIRE YOUNG RETIRE RICH by Robert Kiyosaki.

5-0 out of 5 stars simply the best for the just plain fabulous and broke
I'm in my early 30s (young), a grad student (fabulous) with a past in retail and nonprofits (broke).I had given up on most personal finance books because as soon as they mentioned mutual funds, my eyes glazed over - I was lucky to make the gas bill every winter.I wish I'd had Suze Orman's Money Guide for the Young, Fabulous and Broke years ago.She assumes the best of us - I WANT to have a mutual fund someday! - and wades right into the mess of credit card debt, student loans, and how to reorganize your finances when you've got no property to leverage.For the first time I can see myself really getting out of debt and, someday, putting down money on a house.Not soon, but someday.And this book has the clearest and most user-friendly layout I've seen around such a touchy subject as screwed-up personal finances.It's soothing because you can find answers so fast.There is hope.The answers are all here.Thank you, Ms. Orman.I am recommending this book to all my friends who are not balancing their checkbooks due to fear of what they'll find. This is a good book for anyone of any age who has not yet wrangled their finances.It is not too late!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great resource for anyone who's striking out on her own
This book is easy to read, fun, and offers some great practical advice for people who may not have the greatest control over their finances yet. The one part I'm not crazy about is the suggestion that charging things to your credit card is okay when you're just starting out. Seems to me that you should avoid creating debt at all costs. But the rest of the advice Orman gives is solid and helpful -- and given in terms that are easy to understand. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars 2004 Writers Notes Book Award Winner
The Restaurant Manager's Handbook is a no-nonsense, coverall manual for the food establishment industry. It's the essence of a successful handbook-no jokes, parables, and preachy lectures, just the facts. If you delve into the heal-thy index for fault, you'll abruptly bump into a page number for an answer, and if you're currently running a restaurant and afraid to appear inadequate, you can load the handy CD-ROM and pretend you're checking your e-mail while figur-ing out the monthly audit procedures or why the beer is flat. I'm not kidding. The next time your favorite kitchen runs short of the daily special or closes down for a lack of permit, serve them a copy of this great reference book.

1-0 out of 5 stars Large Print and Weak Content
I recieved this book anxiously, but soon became quickly disappointed with its extreme lack of content.It could have just as easily been published in 30 pages of novel sized text, because that's about all that's contained between it's large vinyl bound covers.There are less expensive books that tell you just as little as this one.

3-0 out of 5 stars If you know the restaurant business, this book is not for u
This book has a lot of information, however it does not go into great detail for those who are familiar with the principals listed inside but are looking to expand on those ideas.If you are an experienced restaurant manager or owner, this book is a waste of money. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Creating relationships instead of schmoozing
I found this book quite inspirational. Although I love spending time with people talking and getting to know them better, I've always been leery of the concept of "networking." It brings to mind a picture of an insincere jerk working the room, brown-nosing the people who can help him get ahead and ignoring everyone else.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book. Great Ideas.
Keith Ferrazzi obviously understands the importance of career karma. He practices what he preaches and provides countless examples of ways to be an effective networker, build your personal brand, and expand your success. This book helps destroy many networking myths and teaches us that the one important rule in networking is to 'give' to the members of your network. Keith has built his own personal brand on his unique and innate relationship-building skills and he shares with us so many different ways to network, that every reader will be able to find the ones that are authentic for them.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Relationship Approach
I was in the middle of reading Keith's book and took it with me on a recent cruise vacation.I recognized the same book being read by a fellow traveler and introduced myself.We chatted about the book and our businesses and exchanged business cards.The presence of the book itself was the perfect introduction to our conversation!Fun, fabulous, and completely natural is how I would describe Keith Ferrazzi's approach to building a network as wide (and deep) as you want. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Finally, a book on economics that even I can understand!
This is the book I have been looking for!I sure wish I'd found this book let's say five years ago or maybe $5,000 ago (lol)!Now I'm a big dummie, especially when it comes to economics, but I plan to make millions in the near future by gaining some kind of angle or secret.Mr CR McConnell breaks down all those confusing economic things that have stood between and my dreams of understanding just how money works for years. I recomend this book for anyone that wants to help themselves out economically and plans to help other people out with their money too.Look for me on the cover of Fortune Magazine!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Macroeconomics Text Available
As far as I'm concerned, McConnell's "Economics" is the most thorough and well-structured macroeconomics text available. The examples are smart and clear, and the information fresh and updated, unlike other texts in this area of study. My vote: 5 stars.
4-0 out of 5 stars Close but no cigar.
McConnell and Brue do a B+ job in this book.However,it does not equal Samuelson's introductory textbookin economics in explanatory power in a number of areas.In this review I will concentrate on just one point of comparison concerning the paradox of thrift.McConnell and Brue effectively discuss this paradox at the macro economic level using the short run aggregate supply curve's three ranges-the horizontal Keynesian range,the upward sloping synthesis range and the Classical-Neoclassical vertical range.If the economy is operating in the Keynesian range or the lower part of the synthesis range,then McConnell and Brue correctly show that more current savings will lead to less future savings due to a decrease in investment and a reverse multiplier effect reducing spending.On the other hand, they correctly show that if the economy is operating in the vertical range,more savings will reduce inflationary pressures while making it possible for investment to increase IF(and only if)businessmen have correct expectations about the future.Samuelson also goes through this analysis.However, Samuelson goes one step further. Samuelson first discusses the linkage at the microeconomic level between the paradox of thrift and its microfoundations in the Production Possibilities Curve(PPF).Essentially, if the economy is operating inside the frontier(on the horizontal Keynesian range or upward sloping portion of the synthesis range),then more savings is detrimental and moves the economy deeper into the interior of the PPF.On the other hand,if the ecomomy is operating on the boundary of the PPF,then more savings can potentially be transformed into more investment,assuming that businessmen, operating in the private sector,have correct expectations about the future.Samuelson demonstrates that in the interior the micro optimality conditions break down and are not operational.McConnell and Brue do not cover this in their textbook. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Very solid book
As someone new to OLAP, I found this book to be VERY helpful really getting a solid handle on OLAP.My company needed to understand and move forward on building a OLAP solution.This book helped my get a handle on what we needed to do, and a high level of how to go about it.
5-0 out of 5 stars More than just a great read
In my mind this book is defintely the most definitive guide to dimensional modeling.Although there are some chapters (the last two that deals with process and other issues, the biggest part of the book is solely about dimensional modeling. Yes the first chapter deals with what it is (in general), why we would like to use dimensional modeling and some myths and caveats.However, from chapter 2 through 12, the book is hand-on.
5-0 out of 5 stars The standard
If you only have time to read one book about dwh, read this one. It gives beguinners a complete overview about the most important aspects (technologies and techniques) involved, for the advanced one this book a good reverece (especially in terms of data modelling).

5-0 out of 5 stars Beware of used copies
I learned a TON from this book; it was really great. The stories are enjoyable and touching. The research is really fascinating, which is great because some books just go on and on until I'm asleep.
5-0 out of 5 stars A worthy read
A friend suggested I read this book after we were chatting about someone we know who gets mowed over by his emotions. It's a really interesting book, so I'm passing his referral on!

5-0 out of 5 stars Invaluable quick read
I love books that are quick reads and this one was a definite good buy.I would suggest anyone that's looking for a quick investment-based, principled book to buy this as well as a book called Investing Without Losing.These two books are a great quick read for those daily train commute or plane ride.(In my case, both.)

5-0 out of 5 stars Bravo
Concise enough that it can be read on an airplane journey, the book offers a lifetime of lessons from one of the masters.I found the writing to be insightful and entertaining w/the wittiness of the author as he explains the principles of outperformance.Certainly a book I will return to often for ideas and guidance regarding my investments.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great read now, an even better reference for the future
There are a lot of best selling "value investing for dummies" type books out there these days, but most of them recycle the same old cliches while underestimating the reader's ability to comprehend complicated investing approaches. The Little Book of Value investing does neither. It is professionally written by someone who'se been in the game a long time and is willing to share important lessons without dumbing them down too much. I thoroughly enjoyed my first read of this book and find myself regularly flipping through it to generate new investment ideas. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The sad truth
This book is about the destruction of our country by elected officials and Big Business "Interests."
4-0 out of 5 stars Thom hits the nail on the head in all but this: education
Education in this country is big business and is so hopelessly institutionalized (that is, it has become an institution) Institutions are self-perpetuating.It is extremely difficult--if not impossible--to change anything about an institution, let alone eliminate it, because the individuals currently occupying places in the institution no longer have much to do with it. The institution sustains itself despite any particular complement of workers within it. Yes, individuals in positions to direct policy and command the workforce can fiddle with some things, but the institution itself will go on. (Note that major legislation affecting schools comes several layers above a district superintendent or even the schools board.)Thus, what Thom is saying about "fixing the schools" or "change the way we are teaching" is way off the mark. Teachers are drones within that institution of public education. The best of teachers can sometimes "make a difference" for one or two kids a year. But because of the context of schooling--one teacher, 35 kids, classes rotating in and out every 45 minutes--the young minds are dumbed down and rigidified such that critical/creating thinking is not only impossible, it is prohibited.
5-0 out of 5 stars Must reading
This book by Thom Hartmann should be required reading in every school in the United States.He lays out concisely what our country has done and needs to do to have a Democracy and a middle class and clearly demonstrates how the so called conservatives now and all the way back to the founding of the nation haave tried to destroy democracy and the middle class in favor of corporatocracy and an elite ruling class.Simple to follow and understand.The book really puts everything into a clear perspective.
