In this suspenseful corporate thriller from Tom McCrory, women are objects and men are pawns at Campbell Industries in Los Angeles. The ground-rules for survival in this hostile workplace have long been established. If you value your paycheck, never question authority. In this environment, “Yes-Men” prosper and for female employees, there is no such thing as an unwelcome sexual advance. Scott Murphy, a newly hired sales rep relocated to L.A. from Memphis, quickly learns that non-compliance with these guidelines can prove fatal. Murphy soon clashes with Glenn Stevens, VP and self-appointed dictator of Campbell Industries. Stevens manages his subordinates like a schoolyard bully, with threats and intimidation. He views his female employees as his personal harem. As long as sales numbers are up, the New Orleans based home office gives Stevens free reign to manage as he sees fit. When one employee is reported missing, and another is found murdered, Stevens devises a strategic plan to frame Murphy. If he wants to live, Murphy must execute his own plan to bring Stevens to justice, and expose the sordid world behind the brass and mahogany facade of Campbell Industries.

"We all know that the actual process of empirical research is a messy, complicated business that at best only approximates the models we impart to students. Research Confidential pulls back the curtain on this process, laying bare the sordid details of the research process, but doing so in a way that respects the ideals of social research and that provides useful lessons for young scholars. It should be required reading for our research methods courses." ---Michael X. Delli Carpini, Dean, Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania "In this impressive volume, some of the brightest young lights in social research have taken us backstage to share what they learned from their innovative projects. Besides providing a wealth of help with methodological concerns, the book includes theoretical and career issues to consider when doing research. Anyone doing research should benefit from reading it." ---Caroline Hodges Persell, Professor of Sociology, New York University "Research Confidential complements existing methods literature by providing refreshingly honest accounts of key challenges and decision forks-in-the-research-road. Each chapter enlightens and entertains." ---Kirsten Foot, Associate Professor of Communication, University of Washington "A must-read for researchers embarking on new projects. Rather than the abstract descriptions of most methods textbooks, this volume provides rich accounts of the firsthand experiences of actual researchers. An invaluable resource of practical advice. Critically, it will make new researchers aware of the actual challenges that they are likely to face in their work." ---Christopher Winship, editor of Sociological Methods and Research and Professor of Sociology, Harvard University This collection of essays aims to fill a notable gap in the existing literature on research methods in the social sciences. While the methods literature is extensive, rarely do authors discuss the practical issues and challenges they routinely confront in the course of their research projects. As a result, editor Eszter Hargittai argues, each new cohort is forced to reinvent the wheel, making mistakes that previous generations have already confronted and resolved. Research Confidential seeks to address this failing by supplying new researchers with the kind of detailed practical information that can make or break a given project. Written in an informal, accessible, and engaging manner by a group of prominent young scholars, many of whom are involved in groundbreaking research in online contexts, this collection promises to be a valuable tool for graduate students and educators across the social sciences. Eszter Hargittai is Associate Professor of Communication Studies at Northwestern University and Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.

A consumer-empowerment book for people in 401(k), 403(b) & 457(b) plans. The average participant fee in small business 401k plans across the U.S is 4%. Fees are not much lower at even mid and large-size companies. Learn how employees can take the lead and drive change within companies by working with management to secure lower retirement plan fees. From The Back Cover… For every hundred dollars in your workplace retirement account, how much is your 401(k), 403(b) or 457(b) company slipping out the back door for themselves? Hint: Don’t ask your employer. They don’t know either. All they did was hire the company. And so it goes… In every town, in every workplace across the U.S… Employees blissfully trust that their employer selected a good retirement plan. Employers blissfully trust that they did too, completely unaware of what good actually looks like. The only ones who know what good and bad look like are the retirement plan companies, and therein lies the problem. It is a classic case of the fox guarding the henhouse. Only this fox is really smart, because you don’t even know if your hens are missing. You are about to find out. 401 CONFIDENTIAL takes you on the inside of the retirement plan industry. I do a brain dump on how retirement plans are packaged, priced and sold to private and public-sector employers. I show you the dirty little secrets of the industry. I show what ultra-low fees and ultra-high fees look like. And I show employers and employees how to calculate your fees and take back what belongs to you. By the end of this book I shift the entire balance of power from the retirement plan companies to the retirement plan consumers.

From America’s number one Cuba reporter, PEN award–winning investigative journalist Ann Louise Bardach, comes the big book on Cuba we’ve all been waiting for. An incisive and spirited portrait of the twentieth century’s wiliest political survivor and his fiefdom, Cuba Confidential is the gripping story of the shattered families and warring personalities that lie at the heart of the forty-three-year standoff between Miami and Havana. Famous to many Americans for her cover stories and media appearances, Ann Louise Bardach has been covering Cuba for a decade. She’s talked to the crooks, spooks and politicians who have made history, and to their hired assassins and confidants. Based on exclusive interviews with Fidel Castro, his sister Juanita, his former brother-in-law Rafael Díaz-Balart, the family of Elián González, the friends and family of the legendary American fugitive Robert Vesco, the intrepid terrorist Luis Posada Carriles, and the inner circles of Jeb Bush and the late exile leader Jorge Mas Canosa, Cuba Confidential exposes the hardball take-no-prisoners tactics of the Cuban exile leadership, and its manipulation and exploitation by ten American presidents. Bardach homes in on Fidel Castro and his cronies, taking us closer than we’ve ever been—and on the militant exiles who have devoted their lives, with CIA connivance, to trying to eliminate him. From Calle Ocho to Juan Miguel González’s kitchen table in Cárdenas, from Guantánamo Bay to Union City to Washington, D.C., Ann Louise Bardach serves up an unforgettable portrait of Cuba and its exiles.

This collection contains Volumes 1-3 of the groundbreaking, behind-the-scenes series of a working writer’s journey! Ever wondered what bestselling authors think about on a daily basis? M.L. Ronn is the author of over 50 books of fiction and nonfiction. This book series is a diary of all the lessons he’s learning as he navigates how to master the craft of writing, marketing, and running a profitable publishing business. Most writers don’t talk about the everyday lessons they learn because they might seem mundane, boring, or obvious. Many only start talking about their success once they’ve achieved it. This book is the exact opposite: it’s about a writer learning how to be successful and documenting the process. The ideas in this book are what writers discuss over beers at writing conferences. They’re insider ideas—you may find them interesting and useful on your journey to becoming a successful writer.
