            In his sophomore year of college, Mark Zuckerberg created a simple website to serve as a campus social network. But the site caught on like wildfire, and soon students nationwide were on Facebook. Today, Facebook is nearly unrecognizable from Zuckerberg's first, modest iteration.... It has grown into a tech giant, the largest social media platform and one of the most gargantuan companies in the world with over 2.23 billion global users. Love it or hate it, there is no denying the power and omnipresence of Facebook in daily life. And in light of growing scandals surrounding election-influencing 'fake news' accounts, the mining of its users' personal data, and growing discontent with the actions of its founder and CEO, never has the company been more central to the international conversation.

            Forget the old concept of the 9-5. Companies around the world are redesigning the work week to increase efficiency, health and happiness in their workers. A growing number of businesses are shortening their working week to address problems with low productivity, poor mental healt...h and unequal working opportunities. Workers are still paid the same salary for a four-day week and the results are revolutionary. In Shorter, best-selling author Alex Pang studies these trailblazers where managers are reporting their teams to be: - More creative in their problem solving - Happier and with lower stress and anxiety and cases of burnout - More productive Pang will reveal step-by-step how they have gone about making these changes, the challenges and solutions and, most importantly, how you can do the same.
