We human beings had no say in existing—we just opened our eyes and found ourselves here. We have a fundamental need to understand who we are and the world we live in. Reason takes us a long way, but mystery remains. When our minds and senses are baffled, faith can seem justified—but faith is not knowledge. In Ultimate Questions, acclaimed philosopher Bryan Magee provocatively argues that we have no way of fathoming our own natures or finding definitive answers to the big questions we all face. With eloquence and grace, Magee urges us to be the mapmakers of what is intelligible, and to identify the boundaries of meaningfulness. He traces this tradition of thought to his chief philosophical mentors—Locke, Hume, Kant, and Schopenhauer—and shows why this approach to the enigma of existence can enrich our lives and transform our understanding of the human predicament. As Magee puts it, "There is a world of difference between being lost in the daylight and being lost in the dark." The crowning achievement to a distinguished philosophical career, Ultimate Questions is a deeply personal meditation on the meaning of life and the ways we should live and face death.

With his trademark clarity, Reichheld: • Defines the fundamental concept of Net Promoter, explaining its connection to your company’s growth and sustained success • Presents the closed-loop feedback process and demonstrates its power to energize employees and delight customers • Shares new and compelling stories of companies that have transformed their performance by putting Net Promoter at the center of their business Practical and insightful, The Ultimate Question 2.0 provides a blueprint for long-term growth and success.

Fred Reichheld's 2006 book The Ultimate Question, that question being, "How likely is it that you would recommend this company to a friend or colleague?"-challenged the conventional wisdom of customer satisfaction programs. It coined the terms 'bad profits' and 'good profits' and pointed to a faster, much more accurate way of gauging customers' real loyalty to a company, introducing a quantitative measure (the Net Promoter Score) for establishing a baseline and effectively tracking changes going forward. Richard Owen and Laura Brooks are co-developers, along with Reichheld, of the methodology behind answering the question. In this book, Owen and Brooks tell how based on a variety of real case studies' to actually embed Net Promoter discipline in organizations of all types.

When young children first begin to ask 'why?' they embark on a journey with no final destination. The need to make sense of the world as a whole is an ultimate curiosity that lies at the root of all human religions. It has, in many cultures, shaped and motivated a more down to earth scientific interest in the physical world, which could therefore be described as penultimate curiosity. These two manifestations of curiosity have a history of connection that goes back deep into the human past. Tracing that history all the way from cave painting to quantum physics, this book (a collaboration between a painter and a physical scientist that uses illustrations throughout the narrative) sets out to explain the nature of the long entanglement between religion and science: the ultimate and the penultimate curiosity.

We are often inclined to seek the assistance of professional authorities during a time of crisis, such as a conflict of conscience, anxiety and impaired self-esteem, inability to feel part of a complex and confusing world, or the troubling insecurity engendered by our own fallible coping strategies. Finding easy answers to challenging questions and problems is not an effective way to alleviate physical, spiritual, or psychological distress. The Vulnerable Self: Confronting the Ultimate Questions is a courageous book about the quality of human existence as it relates to the significance of suffering and the value of being alive. Dr. Avery Weisman, an esteemed psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, compassionately articulates our courageous and sometimes skeptical search for an authentic self. He contends that a major obstacle is a person's propensity to suffer needlessly, caused by a failure to recognize and deal objectively with underlying fundamental questions, which Dr. Weisman labels "metaproblems". These include, in particular, the meaning of meaning; the justification of physical and spiritual deterioration; the need for morale and courage; and the motivations behind inevitable negotiations with our mortality. Dr. Weisman empathetically points out the universality of vulnerability, and how we can confront and understand the problems that haunt and undermine our existence. With rare wisdom and awareness of the traumas of the human condition, he thoughtfully characterizes the reader as a "pilgrim" whose existential search is likely to bring about isolation from the conventional values of society. The pilgrim's solitary journey begins when he or she is ready to take the initial steps ofsurrendering entrenched patterns of denial and self-deception by realizing that despair and the inability to cope are not inevitable but submerged motivations. The Vulnerable Self is a unique and inspiring work which offers true and authentic insight to lay readers of all spiritual persuasions, as well as to psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, social workers, nurses, members of the clergy, and gerontologists.
