Why People Fail
There are thousands of books on success, but very few on failure. But it’s only when we understand the real causes of failure, that we can design our lives for maximum success. In this groundbreaking business coaching book, leading business mentor Siimon Reynolds reveals the 16 causes of failure, and provides powerful ways we can overcome them and create the life of our dreams. Over 3 years, Reynolds undertook a comprehensive research study of why people fail in business, sport and their personal lives. Blending fascinating stories with cutting edge science, Reynolds proves that not only is failure largely predictable, but success can be deliberately engineered. Why People Fail is a must read for anyone who is ambitious and seeks a high level of achievement in their personal and professional lives.
How to Make Money Out of Thin Air
Ask yourself: what’s the difference between a rich person and the average person on the street? And more importantly, which one do you really want to be? Successful people don’t have mysterious talents; they may not be super intelligent or especially gifted. But they have managed to figure out one thing the others haven’t – how to make money. In this groundbreaking book, Brian Sher shows you that it’s not difficult to do. You just have to know how. Here he reveals for the first time the strategies that successful people use to make money seemingly out of fresh air – so you can own and use those strategies too.
What Rich People Know & Desperately Want to Keep Secret
The cat is out of the bag! The “average” millionaire is not so different than the average anyone else. Thomas Stanley and William Danko told us so in The Millionaire Next Door (1996), and since then there have been a host of spin-offs and imitators telling us essentially the same thing. Most of the wealthy live simply, invest carefully, and buy sensibly.
One significant distinction is that most millionaires are also successful in starting their own businesses and sticking with them. It seems that this is the case in Australia, too. Sher himself made his money by starting a publishing enterprise that specializes in putting out summaries of management books for businesspersons who do not have much time to read. Although American authors have focused on the simple lifestyles and investing habits of the well-to-do, Sher emphasizes their entrepreneurial skills. His guide is as much of a small-business manual as it is a how-to-get-rich one. Emphasizing the advantages of being one’s own boss, Sher covers motivation, marketing, managing people, interpersonal skills, and business systems and procedures.

Service: A Navy Seal at War
Marcus Luttrell, James D Hornfischer
Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell returned from his star-crossed mission in Afghanistan with his bones shattered and his heart broken. So many had given their lives to save him-and he would have readily done the same for them. As he recuperated, he wondered why he and others, from America’s founding to today, had been willing to sacrifice everything-including themselves-for the sake of family, nation, and freedom.
In Service, we follow Marcus Luttrell to Iraq, where he returns to the battlefield as a member of SEAL Team 5 to help take on the most dangerous city in the world: Ramadi, the capital of war-torn Al Anbar Province. There, in six months of high-intensity urban combat, he would be part of what has been called the greatest victory in the history of U.S. Special Operations forces. We also return to Afghanistan and Operation Redwing, where Luttrell offers powerful new details about his miraculous rescue. Throughout, he reflects on what it really means to take on a higher calling, about the men he’s seen lose their lives for their country, and the legacy of those who came and bled before.

He has helped to fund scientific research institutes, K-12 education reform, and some of the world’s greatest contemporary art museums.

The book is short, crisp, a pleasure to read. — “Fortune”
Patrick M. Lencioni
There is a competitive advantage out there, arguably more powerful than any other. Is it superior strategy? Faster innovation? Smarter employees? No, New York Times best-selling author, Patrick Lencioni, argues that the seminal difference between successful companies and mediocre ones has little to do with what they know and how smart they are and more to do with how healthy they are.
