Dozens of books have been published recently on the errors and biases that affect our judgments and choices. Drawing on cognitive science, their lessons are excellent for many kinds of decisions - consumer choice and financial investments, for example - but stop short of addressing many of the most important decisions we face in management, where we can actively influence outcomes and where competitive forces mean we have to outperform rivals. As Phil Rosenzweig shows, drawing on examples from business, sports and politics, this sort of decision-making relies on mastering two very different abilities. First, the analytical problem-solving skills associated with the brain's left hemisphere; and second, what Tom Wolfe called 'the Right Stuff': the ability to take calculated risks. Bringing fresh and often surprising insights to topics including confidence and overconfidence, the uses and limits of decision models, leadership and authenticity, expert performance and deliberate practice, competitive bidding and new venture management, Left Brain, Right Stuff, the myth-busting follow-up to The Halo Effect, explains how to perform when making even the most difficult decisions.

This 4-volume compendium contains the verbatim hard copies of all color slides from the Chua Lecture Series presented at HP in Palo Alto, during the period from September 22 to November 24, 2015. Each lecture consists of 90 minutes, divided into a formal lecture, a discussion session, and an Encore of special trivia that the audience found mesmerizing.These lectures share some unique features of the classic Feynman Lectures on Physics, as much of the materials are presented in the unique style of the author, and the content is original as discovered or invented by the author himself. Unlike most technical books that suffer a notoriously short life span as their features could be superseded by superior models, this series of Chua lectures are intended to never be obsolete — many concepts and principles introduced are in fact new laws of nature, written in the language of sophomore-level mathematics, providing the foundation and the elan vital for initiating and nurturing future concepts and inventions.Volume II — shows that memristors can be either volatile or non-volatile, and effectively proving that synapses are non-volatile memristors, while action potentials are generated by locally-active memristors.

A phone call announcing murder rudely interrupts a quiet Sunday morning for chief of police Susan Wren. The body of Lynelle Hames, a quiet young woman newly arrived in Hampstead, Kansas, has been found near the isolated old house where she was living. Susan herself is a recent arrival in the small town. A former San Francisco cop, she chose to stay on as chief after solving the murder of her new husband one year before (The Winter Widow, SMP, 1992). With cold determination, Susan begins her investigation, but matters are soon complicated by the disappearance of a prominent citizen. As the vice-chancellor of Emerson College, Hilary Kalazar knew Lynnelle, who worked as a clerk-typist at the local school. Is Hilary's failure to arrive at the Dallas convention where she was scheduled to speak a coincidence, or is it somehow connected to Lynnelle's murder? The town begins to panic, with the mayor dogging Susan's every step and the townspeople arming themselves against a faceless danger. Hampered by treacherous weather, tangled lies, and small-town secrets, Susan investigates with street-smart persistence, knowing that unless she moves fast, the killer will strike again. Both poignant and wry, Consider the Crows is also a thoroughly entertaining puzzler of a mystery novel.

Author Mitch Anthony has been recognized as the voice of conscience for the financial services industry. For more than a decade, he has shown advisors how building authentic, genuine relationships can serve clients' best interests and build heathly—and financially successful—practices at the same time. In From the Boiler Room to the Living Room, Mitch examines where the financial services industry has failed in the past, and what it needs to do to restore trust at both the individual and industry levels. He teaches readers how to better understand the emotional significance of the money that clients entrust to their advisors and the struggles they face as they attempt to get "more life for their money." The book also discusses why venture philosophy, funding single moments, and rethinking one's purpose in life is more important to clients than net worth or asset allocation. Finally, it discusses how to develop dialogues that forge meaningful, long-term client connections—in other words, how to stop selling and start listening.
