Decide: Better Ways of Making Better Decisions
Life presents us with a steady stream of decisions that we have to make. So, like it or not, we need to practice this skill every day - at work, at home, and in every aspect of our lives. Yet, we often make decisions without properly considering the context, options and implications of our actions. Or worse still, we end up managing the consequences of avoiding taking difficult decisions. Decide sets out a clear and easy to follow model that will enable you to make or contribute to effective decisions, proving that it does not have to be a long drawn out process, as long as you use a mixture of rational and lateral thinking. Free from business jargon, and filled with relevant case studies, Decide is a vital book for everyone whose life revolves around successful decision making. Thought-provoking and practical, it will help you always make the right decisions, and choose from your options wisely, whether you have 60 days, 60 minutes or just 60 seconds.

Fit to Bust: How Great Companies Fail
There will always be business failures but when you look at who fails, when and how, it's often shocking how far and how fast great companies can fall. Fit to Bust is an eye-opening investigation of the causes of that failure - whether it's a global financial crisis or a single disastrous decision that undermines years of hard work. Tim Phillips casts a wry eye over the biggest business disasters of recent history to provide you with the inside story behind the news stories, from the collapse of Enron to the downfall of Woolworths, to understand why smart people make bad decisions. With a particular focus on business detail, management and decision making, Fit to Bust takes us inside the mind of the CEO to teach us how to spot a disaster and look critically at the companies you work for, invest in or buy from. With case studies and interviews, learn why the recession happened and how to avoid the mistakes that led to it.
