In Hidden Figures, Margot Lee Shetterly reveals the real-life stories of Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Christine Darden — the black women of NASA who braved the insurmountable and conquered the impossible. Even with Virginia's Jim Crow imposing segregation laws, these four African-American women defied the odds against both racial discrimination and gender bias. They were among Langley's all-black "West Computing", a group of women who proved invaluable in the pursuit of both the triumph over the Soviet Union and America's dominion on the race to the heavens. Behind John Glenn's orbital flight and Neil Armstrong's iconic moonwalk were these exceptional "human computers". Armed with slide rules, papers, and pencils, they created satellite, rocket, and airplane designs and helped guarantee the nation's victory in World War II, the Cold War, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Space Race. Margot Lee Shetterly's Hidden Figures is a three-decade chronicle of the intertwining lives of the four women as they formed friendships, fought for equality, rose above obstacles, and transformed their lives as well as America's future.

During the 1920s, the world's wealthiest people per capita were the Osage Indians of Oklahoma. Upon the discovery of oil underneath their lands, they built their own mansions, were driven around by chauffeurs in their own automobiles, and enrolled their children to expensive European schools. That is, until the richest of them were killed off one by one. It was evident that the primary target had been the family of one female Osage member named Mollie Burkhart—her sister was shot and her mother poisoned. The deaths in Mollie Burkhart's family mark the beginning of a series of gruesome murders, each Osage death just as suspicious as the last. Set in what remains of the Wild West—where oilmen like J. P. Getty himself had secured his immense fortune—those who had the guts to uncover the mysteries of the Osage murders had their fates sealed just as well. The FBI finally took over the case when the body count rose to over two dozen. The investigation was the Bureau's first big homicide case, and they had botched it well. Young J. Edgar Hoover was director at the time, and he was desperate. He sought the help of Tom White, a former Texas Ranger, to resolve the case once and for all. White assembled a team of undercover agents, including the Bureau's sole American Indian agent. The team infiltrated the county, knowing full well that being compromised will cost them their lives. White, the agents, and the Osage come together to reveal the truth behind one of America's most sordid conspiracies throughout history. Killers of the Flower Moon sheds light on the long-kept conspiracy that ordered the murder of more than two dozens of Osage members. David Grann's narrative nonfiction is based upon several years of deep research and shocking new evidence. Each piece of information throughout the Bureau's investigation is a step deeper into an intricate web of cover-ups. More importantly, Killers of the Flower Moon illustrates the prejudice and antipathy towards Native Americans which granted the murderers and conspirators impunity all those years ago—even up to this day.

Expert author Joanne Martin examines a variety of conflicting ways to study cultures in organizations, including different theoretical orientations, political ideologies (managerial, critical, and apparently neutral); methods (qualitative, quantitative, and hybrid approaches), and styles of writing about culture (ranging from traditional to postmodern and experimental). In addition, she offers a guide for those who might want to study culture themselves, addressing such issues as: What qualitative, quantitative, and hybrid methods can be used to study culture? What standards are used when reviewers evaluate these various types of research? What innovative ways of writing about culture have been introduced? And finally, what are the most important unanswered questions for future organizational culture researchers?

Was machte man in Amsterdam während des Zweiten Weltkriegs, wenn ein Jude vor der Tür stand, der sich verstecken musste? Man ließ ihn herein, telefonierte und versuchte mit Code-Worten, ihn auf dem Land unterzubringen. Man hatte einen geheimen Raum im Haus, der bei Razzien übersehen wurde. Man übte, nachts aus dem Schlaf gerissen zu sagen: Man wisse von nichts. Corrie ten Boom (1892-1983) erzählt, wie sie mit ihrer ganzen Familie Verfolgten Schutz bietet, selbst zur Verfolgten wird und schließlich 1944 im KZ Ravensbrück inhaftiert wird. Anders als ihre Schwester überlebt sie die Qualen und kommt 1945 frei. Trotz alledem ist sie nach dem Krieg weltweit als Botschafterin der Versöhnung unterwegs. Für ihren Einsatz wurde sie mehrfach ausgezeichnet. Von der Holocaustgedenkstätte Yad Vashem erhielt sie den Ehrentitel "Gerechte unter den Völkern", und die niederländische Königin verlieh ihr den "Orden von Oranien-Nassau". Der internationale Bestseller erscheint in der 31. deutschen Auflage erstmalig in einem größeren Format.

Managing people when you're not their boss is a challenge, particularly in professional service firms where, increasingly, top professionals are being tapped to lead their peers. Now Patrick McKenna and David Maister provide a 'play book' for professionals trying to be both a team member and coach. In industies ranging from banking and insurance to law and engineering, as well as in research labs and software companies, management responsibility is increasingly delegated - ususally without guidance - to those who head up smaller teams of professionals. FIRST AMONG EQUALS speaks directly to those who have gone from focusing on their own performance to being a group manager in charge of leading others. From understanding the group leader role to setting terms of reference and effectively dealing with talented prima donnas, McKenna and Maister present a thorough introduction to managing and orchestrating talent.

Eigentlich sollte man längst bei einem Termin sein, doch dann klingelt das Handy und das E-Mail-Postfach quillt auch schon wieder über. Für Sport und Erholung bleibt immer weniger Zeit und am Ende resigniert man ausgebrannt, unproduktiv und völlig gestresst. Doch das muss nicht sein. Denn je entspannter wir sind, desto kreativer und produktiver werden wir. Mit David Allens einfacher und anwendungsorientierter Methode wird beides wieder möglich: effizient zu arbeiten und die Freude am Leben zurückzugewinnen.
