In this instant <i>New York Times </i>bestseller, pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth shows anyone striving to succeed—be it parents, students, educators, athletes, or business people—that the secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a special blend of passion and persistence she calls “grit.”<BR><BR>Drawing on her own powerful story as the daughter of a scientist who frequently noted her lack of “genius,” Duckworth, now a celebrated researcher and professor, describes her early eye-opening stints in teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not “genius” but a unique combination of passion and long-term perseverance.<BR> <BR>In <i>Grit</i>, she takes readers into the field to visit cadets struggling through their first days at West Point, teachers working in some of the toughest schools, and young finalists in the National Spelling Bee. She also mines fascinating insights from history and shows what can be gleaned from modern experiments in peak performance. Finally, she shares what she’s learned from interviewing dozens of high achievers—from JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon to New Yorker cartoon editor Bob Mankoff to Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll.<BR> <BR>Among <i>Grit</i>’s most valuable insights:<BR> <BR> *Why any effort you make ultimately counts twice toward your goal<BR> *How grit can be learned, regardless of I.Q. or circumstances<BR> *How lifelong interest is triggered<BR> *How much of optimal practice is suffering and how much ecstasy<BR> *Which is better for your child—a warm embrace or high standards<BR> *The magic of the Hard Thing Rule<BR> <BR>Winningly personal, insightful, and even life-changing, <i>Grit</i> is a book about what goes through your head when you fall down, and how that—not talent or luck—makes all the difference.

Waking Up White is the book Irving wishes someone had handed her decades ago. By sharing her sometimes cringe-worthy struggle to understand racism and racial tensions, she offers a fresh perspective on bias, stereotypes, manners, and tolerance. As Irving unpacks her own long-held beliefs about colorblindness, being a good person, and wanting to help people of color, she reveals how each of these well-intentioned mindsets actually perpetuated her ill-conceived ideas about race. She also explains why and how she's changed the way she talks about racism, works in racially mixed groups, and understands the antiracism movement as a whole. Exercises at the end of each chapter prompt readers to explore their own racialized ideas. Waking Up White's personal narrative is designed to work well as a rapid read, a book group book, or support reading for courses exploring racial and cultural issues.

<p><b>Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Daniel Golden exposes how academia has become the center of foreign and domestic espionage—and why that is troubling news for our nation's security.</b></p><p>Grounded in extensive research and reporting, <i>Spy Schools</i> reveals how academia has emerged as a frontline in the global spy game. In a knowledge-based economy, universities are repositories of valuable information and research, where brilliant minds of all nationalities mingle freely with few questions asked. Intelligence agencies have always recruited bright undergraduates, but now, in an era when espionage increasingly requires specialized scientific or technological expertise, they’re wooing higher-level academics—not just as analysts, but also for clandestine operations.</p><p>Golden uncovers unbelievable campus activity—from the CIA placing agents undercover in Harvard Kennedy School classes and staging academic conferences to persuade Iranian nuclear scientists to defect, to a Chinese graduate student at Duke University stealing research for an invisibility cloak, and a tiny liberal arts college in Marietta, Ohio, exchanging faculty with China’s most notorious spy school. He shows how relentlessly and ruthlessly this practice has permeated our culture, not just inside the US, but internationally as well. Golden, acclaimed author of <i>The Price of Admission</i>, blows the lid off this secret culture of espionage and its consequences at home and abroad.</p>

When you evaluate the deals men put together with a neutral eye, you’ll usually notice that their partnerships consist of a split of some sort. It’s usually equal and very seldom is it a split that’s hung up on money. They don’t worry about fair, they were worry about results!<br /><br />Women tend to handle it differently. We’re often in protection mode, which seldom serves our purposes well. Then we get closed out of good opportunities, and wonder why. <br /><br />I’ve been there, living in an emotionally consumed state of mind. Then I’d look over at my husband and see him simply conducting business and creating partnerships—without the emotional attachment. I was curious, and I wanted to learn from it. I didn’t love emotional complications, but I had definitely been existing with them. And—yes—that was very hard to admit. It’s not easy to have a “coming to reality moment”, but I did and learned four wonderful lessons that women can benefit from. It’s not about becoming a man, it’s about becoming the most amazing business woman you can be for your own sanity and prosperity.<br /><br />
