Make Elephants Fly: The Process of Radical Innovation by Steven S. Hoffman
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3 MB
Overview: Drawing on examples of the hottest innovators in Silicon Valley, this step-by-step guide will show you how to develop, test and launch your impossibly big idea to success.
Almost every major company today has made innovation its number one priority. Yet fewer than one in four executives believe their organizations are effective innovators. The pressure to innovate and the price paid for failure keeps rising, while most companies haven’t progressed at all. They are still using the same antiquated techniques pioneered decades ago. This is why some of the biggest corporations in the world manage to lose entire markets to startups they’ve never heard of.
In today’s world, everyone will need to innovate to stay competitive. It doesn’t matter if you’re a startup founder, corporate executive, small business owner, freelancer or professional, there’s a technology out there that’s going to upend your industry. And if you aren’t able to harness it to your advantage, someone else will. Innovation is no longer an option—it’s the price of admission into the business world.
Making Elephants Fly is designed to help you implement the same innovation methodologies and processes as Silicon Valley startups.

Download What Causes Human Behavior by Stephen F. Ledoux (.ePUB)

What Causes Human Behavior by Stephen F. Ledoux
Requirements: EPUB Reader 1.8 MB
Overview: What experts are saying about What Causes Human Behavior:
Stephen Ledoux’s book, is a strong non-compromising, theoretical and philosophical argument that the answers come from behaviorology, the natural science of behavior, that the answers do not come from astrology, theology, etc., or from psychology, the mentalistic unnatural science of the mind. And he supports his argument with examples of effective, science-based applications of applied behaviorology (applied behavior analysis) and with analyses of human behavior in everyday life, going from simple behaviors, to complex verbal behavior, with suggestions that behaviorology is crucial to the solutions of the world problems of overpopulation, sustainability, and global warming. But also, he’s not afraid to make these complex topics more readable by using an occasional contraction, an informed expression, and even a little humor, i.e. he’s way cool.
Richard Malott, Ph.D. (Professor, Western Michigan University)
Professor Ledoux has written a primer on a newly emerging discipline: behaviorology. It is the natural science of environment-behavior relations and an intellectually challenging subject, one that variously intersects with astrology, psychology, philosophy, education, and physiology plus other biological and behavioral sciences. Ledoux’s discussion of explanatory fictions and a variety of other explanatory fallacies alone, however, is worth the price of admission. And there is so much more!

Bones: Discovering the First Americans by Elaine Dewar
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 2.0 MB
Overview: Bones—the remains of ancient New World natives now lying in museums and university laboratories across the Americas—are at the center of the scientific and cultural battles described in this provocative book. These bones, award-winning investigative journalist Elaine Dewar asserts, challenge the accepted theory that the first Americans descend from a Mongoloid people who migrated across the Bering land bridge to Alaska at the end of the Ice Age 11,000 years ago. With Native American activists, white supremacists, DNA experts, and physical anthropologists—all vying for control of ancient bones like those of the Caucasoid Kennewick Man—Dewar explores the politics of archaeology, history, law, native spirituality, and race relations at work in this scientific battlefield. She reports, too, on the contention among the experts over alternative theories that suggest the New World may have been populated as early as 60,000 years ago, perhaps by Polynesian voyagers who sailed to South America.

The Idea That Is America: Keeping Faith With Our Values In A Dangerous World by Anne-Marie Slaughter
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 463 KB
Overview: The Washington Post Book World named THE IDEA THAT IS AMERICA one of the best books of 2007When Army Captain Ian Fishback decided to blow the whistle on prisoner abuse in Iraq and Afghanistan, he posed the central question facing America in the new century: "Will we confront danger in order to preserve our ideals, or will courage and commitment to individual rights wither at the prospect of sacrifice?… I would rather die fighting than give up even the smallest part of the idea that is ‘America.’"But what is this idea? George W. Bush waged war in Iraq in the name of American values–liberty and democracy. His critics in the United States and around the world also use the language of values, and attack him for deceiving a nation to wage an unjust war. What are the values that America truly stands for? In The Idea That Is America, a preeminent foreign policy scholar eloquently reminds us of the essential principles on which our nation was established: liberty, democracy, equality, tolerance, faith, justice, and humility. Our ongoing struggle to live up to America’s great promise matters not only to us, but also to the billions of men and women everywhere who look to the United States to lead, protect, and inspire the world. In The Idea That Is America, Anne-Marie Slaughter shows us the way forward.

Prodigals: A Vietnam Story by Richard Taylor
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 5 MB
Overview: During his first tour in Vietnam – 1967-68 – Dick Taylor was a well trained and highly motivated amateur assigned to advise a hard-bitten ARVN infantry battalion working in the mud and streams of IV Corps. He became savvy in a hurry and found that he was both brave and resourceful. He barely survived Tet 1968, then served on an advisory team staff.

For the next two years, Taylor earned a Ranger tab, served on a division staff, and schooled on. He met his wife, and married her days before he returned to Vietnam.

Taylor’s second tour – 1970-71 – was altogether different. He immediately assumed command of Bravo Company, 1/7 Cav, and excelled as a commander and a leader. He was aggressive in the field, confident in his command, and assertive with his superiors. He fought a good war, a successful war, and when he was forced to take a staff job it was as his battalion’s intelligence officer. But the war was winding down, its purpose lost. Taylor’s spirit’s flagged, but not his fidelity.

This well-written combat memoir is heartfelt, earnest, honest and just a little melancholy.

Download The Hill of Devi by E. M. Forster (.ePUB)

The Hill of Devi by E. M. Forster
Requirements: EPUB Reader 2.43 MB
Overview: An essential companion to A Passage to India, a collection of the author’s own letters that read like "a close personal friend has shared his impressions" (Kirkus Reviews).
In 1912, a young E. M. Forster traveled to India to serve as a secretary to the Maharajah of Dewas, a small Indian state. He was elevated to the rank of a minor noble, and eventually given the state’s highest honor, the Tukoji Rao III gold medal.
This brief episode in Forster’s life became the basis for his masterwork, A Passage to India. In the letters included in The Hill of Devi, he shares his personal journey of discovering his beloved India for the first time. Forster paints a vivid, intimate picture of Dewas State—a strange, bewildering, and enchanting slice of pre-independence India.
In this collection, Forster shares insight into the lives of Indian royalty and accounts of the stark contrast between their excesses and the poverty he encounters. From letters that set the scene for Forster’s lifelong friendship with the Maharaja, to an essay on the Maharaja himself and Forster’s experiences as the Maharaja’s personal secretary, The Hill of Devi is a fascinating chronicle of the author’s experience in the land he called "the oddest corner of the world outside Alice in Wonderland."
