“An old-fashioned novel . . . Elegantly wrought, hard-headed and tenderhearted about the world of actors and theater” (Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prize–winning author). When Robert, Patrick, and Irene met in New York City in the late 1970s, they were all determined to become actors, and it felt as if the city—or even the world—could be their oyster. Robert was the good-looking, ambitious one. Patrick was tall, ungainly, but naturally dramatic. And Irene, a former rodeo star out of Kansas, was the beautiful ingenue. They were young, talented, and passionate, and they soon became inseparable. But their careers don’t all head in the same direction, and as their lives change course, friendships are tested—and they all face decisions that could undo them. A Company of Three features “a fascinating set of characters, who rely on and push each other away in equal measure, and their struggles are sure to engage readers, especially those interested in the cutthroat world of acting” (Booklist). “O’Connor’s clean, affecting prose and her book’s moving conclusion will stay with readers long after the curtain drops.” —Publishers Weekly

In The Three Rules, Michael E Raynor and Mumtaz Ahmed provide the answer to the ultimate business question: how do some companies manage to keep excelling, year after year after year? 'The objective is to deliver the best possible performance and sustain it for as long as possible' In every sector there's an outlier. An exceptional company that faces the same difficulties as competitors, but constantly delivers superior results. What are they doing differently? And what can they teach us? Michael E. Raynor and Mumtaz Ahmed analysed 25,000 companies spanning forty-five years to find the answers. What they discovered were three clear rules that the most exceptional companies follow when faced with the most difficult decisions. With a powerful combination of detailed case studies and rigorous data analysis, reading, learning and applying The Three Rules will help your organization become truly exceptional. Michael E. Raynor is a director at Deloitte Services LP, where he explores corporate strategy, innovation, and growth with clients in a variety of industries. He is the coauthor, with Clayton Christensen, of The Innovator's Solution, and the author of the bestselling and critically acclaimed The Strategy Paradox and The Innovator's Manifesto. Mumtaz Ahmed is a principal in Deloitte Consulting LLP and the chief strategy officer of Deloitte LLP, responsible for the U.S. firm's strategy, corporate development, innovation, eminence, and brand.

A manager argued that he could either increase his business unit's margins or its sales, but not both. His chief executive reminded him of the time when people lived in mud huts and faced the stark choice between light and heat: punch a hole in the side of your hut and you let the daylight in but also the cold, or block up all the openings and you stay warm but sit in darkness. The invention of glass made it possible to overcome the dilemma—to let in the light but not the cold. How then, he asked his manager, will you resolve your dilemma between no sales or no margin improvement? Where is the glass? —From the Introduction "To win, leaders have to push their companies beyond trade-offs. They must find strong growth at premium returns, not one or the other. They must deliver great results today and build for the future at the same time, not push for earnings that can't be sustained. The Three Tensions is about having both at the same time, more of the time. I recommend it to any manager serious about winning." —James Kilts, former chairman, CEO, and president, The Gillette Company "Leadership can't be just about telling people what you expect of them. The Three Tensions sets out a range of helpful tactics leaders can adopt to really engage their people in the search for good performance on many fronts." —Andrew Cosslett, chief executive, InterContinental Hotels Group PLC "The Three Tensions speaks to fundamental management issues, perhaps the most fundamental. Managers looking for new ideas on how to improve performance will find it very stimulating. I found my own thinking very much influenced by it." —John Roberts, professor of economics, strategic management, and international business, Stanford Business School

A gripping account of ordinary men with extraordinary courage and heroism who had one last chance to make good—and one helluva war zone to do it in. The new commander of the Company E, 52d Infantry LRRPs, Capt. George Paccerelli, was tough, but the men’s new AO was brutal. It was bad enough that the provinces of Binh Long, Phuoc Long, and Tay Ninh bordered enemy-friendly Cambodia, but their vast stretches of double- and triple-canopy jungle were also home to four crack enemy divisions, including the Viet Cong’s notorious 95C Regiment. Only the long-range patrols could deliver the critical strategic intelligence that the 1st Cav so desperately needed. Outmanned, outgunned, far from safety, these LRRPs stalked the enemy to his lair, staging bold prisoner snatches and tracking down hidden jungle bases. Hiding in ambush, surrounded by NVA, these teams either pulled off spectacular escape-and-evasion maneuvers in running firefights—or died trying.

This collection of more than 100 ghost stories has entertained lovers of Virginia genealogy, history and folklore for generations. Mrs. Marguerite du Pont Lee's interest in the unexplained led her to gather tales of ghosts and the paranormal from around her adopted state, many of them dating back to the colonial period. Charmingly written and illustrated throughout, most of the tales (like the encounter of Warner Taliaferro of Belle Ville in Gloucester County with the spirit of his neighbor, Mrs. Tabb, on the night of her death) deal with ghosts sited at the venerable homesteads that proliferate in Virginia. Many of the ghost stories, of course, concern early Virginians who materialize on the family trees of Virginia researchers. So, whether you're interested in stories of old Virginia houses, a particular Virginia family, or just a good ghost story, Virginia Ghosts is one book you'll want to take to bed with you.

Being laid off can be a traumatic event. The unemployed worry about how they will pay their bills and find a new job. In the American economy's boom-and-bust business cycle since the 1980s, repeated layoffs have become part of working life. In A Company of One, Carrie M. Lane finds that the new culture of corporate employment, changes to the job search process, and dual-income marriage have reshaped how today's skilled workers view unemployment. Through interviews with seventy-five unemployed and underemployed high-tech white-collar workers in the Dallas area over the course of the 2000s, Lane shows that they have embraced a new definition of employment in which all jobs are temporary and all workers are, or should be, independent "companies of one." Following the experiences of individual jobseekers over time, Lane explores the central role that organized networking events, working spouses, and neoliberal ideology play in forging and reinforcing a new individualist, pro-market response to the increasingly insecure nature of contemporary employment. She also explores how this new perspective is transforming traditional ideas about masculinity and the role of men as breadwinners. Sympathetic to the benefits that this "company of one" ideology can hold for its adherents, Lane also details how it hides the true costs of an insecure workforce and makes collective and political responses to job loss and downward mobility unlikely.
