The Book Of Five Rings


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

If our readers, tempted by the Italian proverb about seeing Naples and then dying, were to ask us what is the most favourable moment for visiting the enchanted city, we should advise them to land at the mole, or at Mergellina, on a fine summer day and at the hour when some solemn procession is moving out of the cathedral. Nothing can give an idea of the profound and simple-hearted emotion of this populace, which has enough poetry in its soul to believe in its own happiness.

The Realities Of Management


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

There are no standard answers to management problems because management situations are never alike. Problems have multiple solutions, says Callaway, and the outcome in one situation can be different from the outcome in another. Basing his book upon actual management problem scenarios--problems with no best solution, just ranges of possibilities--Callaway demonstrates that every decision carries risk. And to make matters worse, managers rarely have all the decision making information they need. His book brings welcome reassurance to executives and managers everywhere, particularly to those who must walk through the treacherous shifting sands of the new reengineered workplace.
