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.

The Dip: The extraordinary benefits of knowing when to quit (and when to stick)
This iconic bestseller from the bestselling author of All Marketers Are Liars proves that winners are just the best quitters and 'should be on every entrepreneur's book list' (Entrepreneur.com) Every new project (or career or relationship) starts out exciting and fun. Then it gets harder and less fun, until it hits a low point - really hard, really not fun. At this point you might be in a Dip, which will get better if you keep pushing, or a Cul-de-Sac, which will never get better no matter how hard you try. The hard part is knowing the difference and acting on it. According to marketing guru and best-selling author Seth Godin, what sets successful entrepreneurs (and pop stars and weight lifters and car salesmen) apart from everyone else is their ability to give up on Cul-de-Sacs while staying motivated in Dips. Winners quit fast, quit often and quit without guilt - until they commit to beating the right Dip for the right reasons. You'll never be number one at anything without picking your shots very carefully. The Dip is a short, entertaining book that helps you do just that. It will forever alter the way you think about success. 'Smart, honest, and refreshingly free of self-help posturing, this primer on winning-through-quitting is at once motivational and comically indifferent. . . Godin's truth-that we fail when we get distracted by tasks we don't have the guts to quit -makes excellent sense of an often-difficult career move' (Publishers Weekly)

The Art of Business: How the Chinese Got Rich
When we look at Chinese history for a guide to business, we commonly reach for Sun Tzu's The Art of War, but that is a military text. It focuses on an enemy, not a trading partner, and it certainly doesn't mention customers and their role in strategy. To come to terms with Chinese commerce, we don't need to know the Art of War. We need to know the art of business. This book explains Chinese business in history: its practices, values and achievements. As we explore business through time, we discover the strategies which enabled Chinese merchants to become rich and gain insights into how Chinese business evolved, and continues to evolve. The Art of Business goes beyond the Silk Road, Marco Polo and the opium trade to examine how the many different Chinese businesses made money. It asks how merchants mastered the spatial and temporal dimensions of the market and built substantial wealth in doing so. It explores the commercial revolutions that occurred in the Tang and Song dynasties and the late Ming, and reveals business practices carried into the Ching dynasty. It explores salt merchants, the porcelain industry, Huizhou and Shanxi merchant groups, and Howqua, who became the world's richest man. The evolving nature of world commerce will place new demands on tomorrow's businesses. By examining the past, we can better understand the future in which China will once again stand like a giant.
