When Nan accompanied her son taking her five-year-old grandchild to school one day, she was mesmerised by all the changes since she started school over seventy years ago, just after World War Two: the way people work and the opportunities then and now. Looking back at so many changes and progress inspired her to write a book about her memories of her younger and teenage years right up to getting married in the 60s. The progress, in education and the new technology, has created a different lifestyle as we know it today.

Good Times in Dystopia by George F.

London drowns in sewage and Europe burns. In this creative nonfiction, George F. falls in with a band of chaos punks who drink, fight and struggle for shelter when the world ends. From mass demonstrations in Paris, the rotten squats of Shoreditch, and the lawless forests of the borderlands, to carnival riots in the autonomous zones of Berlin they battle fascists, dodge arrest and wrestle with the greatest struggle of all: sobriety. 'In documenting his desperate battles against State, capital and inner demons, George has gifted us a raging response to the bleakness of our times.' Paul Case, Dead White Anarchists

Three Pillars of Organization and Leadership in Disruptive Times

Three Pillars of Organization and Leadership in Disruptive Times: Navigating Your Company Successfully Through the 21st Century Business World (Future of Business and Finance) by Peter Wollmann, Frank Kühn, Michael Kempf
English | September 28th, 2019 | ISBN: 3030232263 | 264 pages | EPUB | 15.79 MB

This book, written by an interdisciplinary team of authors, explores the transformation of organizations in today's volatile, uncertain, and ambiguous (VUCA) world. It demonstrates the need to manage organizations in a dynamic way, and to revisit and in some cases reinvent working and leadership styles that seemed appropriate during past decades and centuries. In turn, the book puts forward a model based on three distinct pillars of organization and leadership to suit disruptive times: the concepts of 'Sustainable Purpose', 'Travelling Organization', and 'Connecting Resources'. These pillars challenge many of our traditional organizational patterns and meet the need for effective transformative approaches.

All That Jazz: The Life and Times of the Musical Chicago by Ethan Mordden
English | September 16th, 2019 | ISBN: 0190651792 | 272 pages | EPUB | 4.06 MB

In 1975, the Broadway musical Chicago brought together a host of memes and myths - the gleefully subversive character of American musical comedy, the reckless glamour of the big-city newspaper, the mad decade of the 1920s, the work of Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon (two of the greatest talents in the musical's history), and the Wild West gangsterville that was the city of Chicago itself. The tale of a young woman who murders her departing lover and then tricks the jury into letting her off, Chicago seemed too blunt and cynical at first.
