The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement

July 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
In this intriguing, readable business novel, which illustrates state-of-the-art economic theory, Alex Rogo is a UniCo plant manager whose factory and marriage are failing. To revitalize the plant, he follows piecemeal advice from an elusive former college professor who teaches, for example, that reduction in the efficiency of some plant operations may make the entire operation more productive. Alex's attempts to find the path to profitability and to engage his employeesi n the struggle involve the reader; and thankfully the authors' economic models, including a game with match sticks and bowls, are easy to understand. Although some characters are as anonymous as the goods manufactured in the factory, others ring true. In addition, the tender story of Alex and his wife's separation and reconciliation makes a...

Fine Art of Small Talk: How to Start a Conversation, Keep It Going, Build Networking Skills -- and Leave a Positive Impression
Debra Fine
1401302262
October 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Would-be social butterflies will get encouragement but little inspiration from this not quite scintillating self-help primer. Fine, a conversation consultant, insists that small talk is the necessary overture to deeper communication, the key to generating business leads and dates and a pathway to a richer life in which strangers are magically transformed into acquaintances. She covers such cocktail-party conundrums as how to spot "approachable" interlocutors, how to make introductions, how to butt into an intriguing conversation, resuscitate a flagging one and bail out of a boring one, and how to resist one-uppers, know-it-alls, motormouths and other abusers of talk. Given the ingrained human reluctance to talk to strangers, will, not technique, is the real issue. Much of the book is taken up with motivational...


Practical Programming in Computational Geomechanics
Andrew K. Chan
047149447X
Feb 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Realistic prediction of the behaviour of soil masses can only be achieved when the model considers the interaction of the soil skeleton and the pore fluid. This book presents the basis of this computational approach, applied to earthquake engineering. This book presents a simple computer code with 1-D geometry but 2-D movement to aid the understanding of the theory.

This book is essentially for those academics and researchers who have limited experience of programming but who use computer modelling for their research into geomechanics, soil movement and earthquake engineering. Several different models are presented here together with a graphic post-processor to facilitate the development of new and modified constitutive models. Practical considerations in the application of the computer codes are given together...

Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong
James W. Loewen
0684818868
January 1995
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Sociology professor Loewen lambastes history textbooks as both too inaccurate and too bland to engage students. Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Booklist
When textbook gaffes make news, as with the tome that explained that the Korean War ended when Truman dropped the atom bomb, the expeditious remedy would be to fire the editor. Loewen would rather hire a new team of authors bent on the pursuit of context instead of factoids. In Loewen's ideal text, events and people illuminating the multicultural holy trinity of race, gender, and social class would predominate over the fixation on heroes and acts of government. Such is the mood adopted throughout this critique of 12 American history texts in current use. Vetting 10 topics they commonly address--from...

Reference Guide to Famous Engineering Landmarks of the World
Lawrence H. Berlow
0897749669
Nov 1997
Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
This is a fascinating book with no comparable work encompassing engineering achievements through recorded history. Originally intended to specify structures that were the biggest, highest, longest, etc., the definition of landmark was expanded to include special, new, or different accomplishments. Examples are the Brooklyn Bridge, which was a major feat of engineering, and the Statue of Liberty, which has political and social significance even though its construction offered little in the way of technical challenge. Other structures are included because great obstacles were overcome in their construction.The main section is an alphabetically arranged, double-column compendium of facts and histories of 600 structures. The format of each entry begins with the structure's location and date of construction. Size is...
