Throughout my life I have achieved many remarkable things. In this book I'll share with you my ideas and secrets of my success, but not simply because I hope they'll help you achieve your individual goals. Today we are increasingly aware of the effects of our actions on the environment, and I strongly believe that we each have a responsibility, as individuals and organisations, to do no harm. I will explain why we need to take stock of how we may be damaging the environment, and why it is up to big companies like Virgin to lead the way in a more holistic approach to business. A lot has changed since I founded Virgin in 1968, and I'll explain how I intend to take my business and my ideas to the next level and into new and exciting areas - such as launching Virgin fuels. But I have also brought together all the important lessons, good advice and inspirational adages that have helped me along the road to success. Ironically, I have never been one to do things by the book, but I have been inspired and influenced by many remarkable people. I hope that you too might find a little inspiration between these pages.

Selama membangun Virgin Group selama 40 tahun, Richard Branson tak pernah mundur dari tantangan-tantangan yang tampaknya aneh. Ia telah bertarung dengan raksasa bisnis seperti British Airways dan menang. Ia juga pernah menghadapi Coca-Cola ... dan kalah. Branson menceritakan gaya kepemimpinannya yang unik dan menarik dalam buku ini. Pelajarilah bagaimana kesenangan, keluarga, hasrat, dan seni mendengarkan menjadi komponen kunci kesuksesan perusahaan-perusahaan Branson-atau, seperti yang biasa diistilahkan oleh para pegawainya (sambil mengedipkan mata): the Virgin Way. Gaya Virgin. Perspektif unik ini datang dari orang yang meninggalkan sekolah pada usia enam belas tahun, pernah mengidap dyslexia (ketidakmampuan membaca dan belajar), dan tak pernah bekerja pada siapa pun. Branson mungkin terkenal karena sering berpikir "di luar kotak"-sebuah istilah yang tak disukainya, namun ia menegaskan bahwa, "Kau tak perlu berpikir di luar kotak jika kau tak membiarkan siapa pun membangun kotak itu itu di sekitarmu." The Virgin Way bukan buku biasa tentang kepemimpinan. Buku ini ditulis oleh orang yang seumur hidupnya tak pernah membaca buku tentang kepemimpinan. Bersiaplah untuk terkaget-kaget.

Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is a timeless classic that tells us the story of a miserly, hateful man called Ebenezer Scrooge and his journey towards the path of redemption. The story revolves around Scrooge’s hatred for Christmas and those who are not as fortunate as him. On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by three spirits who take him on a journey through time and help him realise the kind of person he has become over time, and the impact of his actions on those around him.

For a scientist committed to empirical evaluation, it is important to show that materials can be helpful outside the context of a therapeutic relationship, so, generally speaking, we know that a book like this is likely to be helpful. Several of the specific components in this book have been tested, sometimes in a form very similar to the way you are contacting this material. For example, several studies evaluated the impact of short passages drawn nearly word for word from ACT materials (very similar to what you've read) that were recorded on audiotape, read aloud by a research assistant, or were presented to the participants to read. Typically, these studies focused on the ability of participants to tolerate distress of various kinds, such as gas-induced panic-like symptoms, extreme cold, extreme heat, or electric shock. A few studies looked at the distress produced by difficult or intrusive cognitions, or clinically relevant anxiety. Some were done with patients, others with normal populations. The specific ACT components that have been examined so far include defusion, acceptance, mind-fulness, and values. The techniques included exercises, metaphors, and rationales, including several that can be found in this book (e.g., word repetition, physicalizing, leaves on a stream, the quicksand metaphor, the Chinese finger trap metaphor, and so forth). Thus, it seems fair to say that it is known that at least some of what you've read can be helpful at least some of the time outside of the context of a therapeutic relationship, when presented in a form similar to the form in which you have contacted this material.

Ku Swee Yong’s Real Estate Riches, Building Your Real Estate Riches and Real Estate Realities have become a valuable resource for property investors in Singapore during the past few years. In his new book, he takes stock of the prolonged downturn and weak market conditions and offers useful defensive strategies in the face of supply gluts and weakening prices. The lead article warns of potential risks arising from an extremely high rate of home ownership in Singapore, followed by frank insights into various local property segments. The book also includes illuminating coverage on some regional markets which he recommends investors to look into. Backed by solid research and astute observations, Weathering A Property Market Downturn is a sobering read that portends a scenario where massive supply overhangs will drive prices markedly down. Addressing current issues faced by property investors through a collection of articles previously published in Today, The Business Times and The Edge, he offers qualified and invaluable observations on public and private properties, mixed developments, luxury estates and overseas properties

'Machiavelli has a new rival, and Sun-tzu had better watch his back' - New York Times Robert Greene's laws are now famous: Law 1: Never outshine the master. Law 2: Never put too much trust in friends; learn how to use enemies. Law 3: Conceal your intentions. Law 4: Always say less than necessary.

(Independent on Sunday). Robert Greene will teach you the distilled wisdom of the masters - illustrated through the tactics, triumphs and failures from Elizabeth I to Henry Kissinger on how to get to the top and stay there. Wry, ironic and clever, this is an indispensable and witty guide to power. The perfect gift book for the power-hungry (and who doesn't want power?); this is the Concise Edition of an international bestseller.
