              A transformative guide to building more fulfilling relationships with colleagues, friends, partners, and family, based on the perennially popular Interpersonal Dynamics ( Touchy Feely ) course at Stanford's Graduate School of Business The ability to create strong relationships wi...th others is crucial to living a fulfilled life and becoming a more effective manager and leader. Yet many of us find ourselves struggling to build solid connections at work, with friends and at home, or unable to handle challenges that inevitably arise when we grow closer to others. When we find ourselves in an exceptional relationship--the kind of relationship where we feel fully understood and supported for who we are--it can seem like magic. But the truth is that the process of building and sustaining these relationships can be described, learned, and applied. David Bradford and Carole Robin taught interpersonal skills to MBA candidates for a combined seventy-five years in their blockbuster Stanford Graduate School of Business course Interpersonal Dynamics (known to generations of students as Touchy Feely ) and have coached and consulted to hundreds of executives for decades. In Connect, they show readers how to take their relationships from shallow to exceptional, along the way offering time-tested strategies for giving feedback, negotiating boundaries, and navigating disagreements. Through stories of people navigating tricky moments in relationships--all based on real dynamics Bradford and Robin have witnessed or experienced--we see the six hallmarks of an exceptional relationship in action: authenticity, vulnerability, honesty, a willingness to ask for and offer help, a shared commitment to growth, and an ability to deal productively with conflict. Filled with relatable scenarios and research-backed insights, Connect will be an important resource for anyone hoping to improve existing relationships and build new ones at any stage of life.

              NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - An inspiring personal story of redemption, second chances, and the transformative power within us all, from the founder and CEO of the nonprofit charity: water. At 28 years old, Scott Harrison had it all. A top nightclub promoter in New York City, his ...life was an endless cycle of drugs, booze, models--repeat. But 10 years in, desperately unhappy and morally bankrupt, he asked himself, What would the exact opposite of my life look like? Walking away from everything, Harrison spent the next 16 months on a hospital ship in West Africa and discovered his true calling. In 2006, with no money and less than no experience, Harrison founded charity: water. Today, his organization has raised over $400 million to bring clean drinking water to more than 10 million people around the globe. In Thirst, Harrison recounts the twists and turns that built charity: water into one of the most trusted and admired nonprofits in the world. Renowned for its 100% donation model, bold storytelling, imaginative branding, and radical commitment to transparency, charity: water has disrupted how social entrepreneurs work while inspiring millions of people to join its mission of bringing clean water to everyone on the planet within our lifetime. In the tradition of such bestselling books as Shoe Dog and Mountains Beyond Mountains, Thirst is a riveting account of how to build a better charity, a better business, a better life--and a gritty tale that proves it's never too late to make a change. 100% of the author's net proceeds from Thirst will go to fund charity: water projects around the world.

              A leading economist explains why college is still a smart investment: as long as you make the right choices about where to go, what to study, and how to pay for it. The cost of college makes for frightening headlines and politics. The outstanding balance of student loans in the U...nited States is over $1.5 trillion, while sticker prices continue to rise. Add the fact that, at least for the foreseeable future, your tuition buys an online-only learning experience, it's no wonder so many of us are left wondering: Is college really worth it? When viewed through an economic lens, the answer is yes, says expert Elizabeth Akers. Because the true value of a degree lies not in the experience, but in the credential: the average college graduate earns almost a million dollars more over the course of their career than someone with just a high school diploma, and a degree from even the most expensive four-year institution delivers a 15 percent return on investment--double that of the stock market. And despite the stories about burdensome student debt, most graduates actually owe very little in monthly payments, relative to their income. The problem with college, Akers argues, isn't the price; it's the risk of your investment not paying off. In Making College Pay, she offers surprising strategies for navigating the tough choices and avoiding the common pitfalls, such as: - Why choosing the right major matters more than where you enroll - The best metric for picking a college (not prestige, selectivity, or ranking). - Why borrowing isn't bad, and in fact, is smarter than paying outright, even for students who can afford it. - How to minimize your risk by utilizing little-known programs like money-back guarantees and income-sharing agreements. Full of practical advice for students and parents, Making College Pay reaffirms the promise of higher education as an engine for upward mobility and prosperity in America.

              Foreword by Bill Gates LinkedIn cofounder, legendary investor, and host of the award-winning Masters of Scale podcast reveals the secret to starting and scaling massively valuable companies. What entrepreneur or founder doesn't aspire to build the next Amazon, Facebook, or Airbnb...? Yet those who actually manage to do so are exceedingly rare. So what separates the startups that get disrupted and disappear from the ones who grow to become global giants? The secret is blitzscaling: a set of techniques for scaling up at a dizzying pace that blows competitors out of the water. The objective of Blitzscaling is not to go from zero to one, but from one to one billion -as quickly as possible. When growing at a breakneck pace, getting to next level requires very different strategies from those that got you to where you are today. In a book inspired by their popular class at Stanford Business School, Hoffman and Yeh reveal how to navigate the necessary shifts and weather the unique challenges that arise at each stage of a company's life cycle, such as: how to design business models for igniting and sustaining relentless growth; strategies for hiring and managing; how the role of the founder and company culture must evolve as the business matures, and more. Whether your business has ten employees or ten thousand, Blitzscaling is the essential playbook for winning in a world where speed is the only competitive advantage that matters.

              Rockonomics: A Backstage Tour of What the Music Industry Can Teach Us about Economics and Life (Hardback)

              Alan Krueger, the former chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisers, uses the music industry, from rock artists to music executives, from managers to promoters, as a way in to explain the principles of economics, and the forces shaping our economic lives. As economi...sts recognize, the music industry is often a leading indicator of today's economy; it is among the first to be disrupted by the latest wave of technology, and examining the ins and outs of how musicians create and sell new songs, and plan concert tours, offers valuable lessons for what is in store for businesses and employees in other industries that are struggling to adapt. Drawing on interviews with leading band members, music executives, managers, promoters, and the latest data on revenues, royalties, tour dates and merchandise, Rockonomics takes readers backstage to show how the music industry really works--who makes money and how much, and how the economics of the music industry has undergone a radical transformation over the last twenty years. Before digitalization, and the ability to stream music over the internet, rock musicians made the bulk of their income from record sales. Today, income from selling songs has plummeted even for superstars like Taylor Swift; the real money nowadays is derived from concert sales. In 2016, for example, Billy Joel earned $212.4 million from his live performances, and less than one million from record sales and streaming. Even Paul McCartney, who has written and recorded more number one songs than anyone in music history, today earns 93 percent of his income from live concerts. Krueger tackles common questions: How does a song become popular? And how does a new artist break out in today's winner take all economy?

              Why Startups Fail: A New Roadmap for Entrepreneurial Success (Hardback)

              If you want your startup to succeed, you need to understand why startups fail. Why do startups fail? That question hit Harvard Business School professor Tom Eisenman with full force when he realized he couldn't explain it. And since more than two thirds of new ventures fail, that... left a lot of explaining to do. So he launched a multi-year research project to find out. In Why Startups Fail, Eisenmann unveils the results: six distinct patterns that account for the vast majority of startup failures. He offers frameworks for detecting when a venture is vulnerable to these patterns, along with a wealth of strategies and tactics for avoiding them. - Bad Bedfellows. Startup success is thought to rest largely on the founder's talents and instincts. But the wrong team, investors, or partners can sink a startup just as quickly. - False Starts. Despite the oft-cited advice to fail fast, and launch before you're ready, doing so risks wasting time and capital on the wrong solutions. - False Promises. Success with early adopters is often misleading and gives founders unwarranted confidence to expand. - Speed Traps. There's lots of pressure on startups to prioritize speed over efficiency and Get Big Fast. But hypergrowth can spell disaster for even the most promising ventures. - Help Wanted. Rapidly scaling startups need lots of capital and talent, but they can make mistakes that leave them suddenly in short supply. - Cascading Miracles. Silicon Valley exhorts entrepreneurs to dream big; as Peter Thiel put it, they promised us flying cars; what we got was 140 characters. But the bigger the vision, the more things can go wrong. Through fascinating stories of ventures that failed to fulfill their early promise--from home furnishings retailer Dot & Bo to the concierge dog walking service Baroo, to the makers of a sophisticated social robot named Jibo, to Better Place, which sought to build a massive network of charging stations for electric vehicles (and more)--Eisenmann shows reader
