The most widely recognized business executive of all time asks the tough questions that America's leaders must address: What is each of us giving back to our country? Do we truly love democracy? Are we too fat and satisfied for our own good? Why is America addicted to oil? Do we really care about our children's futures? Who will save the middle class? Lee Iacocca believes that leaders are made in times of crisis: such as today. He has known more leaders than almost anybody else, including nine U.S. presidents, many heads of state, CEOs of the nation's top corporations, celebrities, and even a pope, and is uniquely suited to share his wisdom, knowledge, and wit about the leadership of America. Lee Iacocca does not mince words, and in Where Have All the Leaders Gone? he offers his no-nonsense, straight-up assessments of the American politicians most likely to run for president in 2008. He also shares his lessons learned, and issues a call to action to summon Americans back to their roots of hard work, common sense, integrity, generosity, and optimism. Where have all the leaders gone? Lee Iacocca has the answer. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lee Iacocca. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/sans/000893/bk_sans_000893_sample.mp3.

Ever since Socrates, teaching has been a difficult and even dangerous profession. Why is good teaching such hard work? In this provocative, witty, and sometimes rueful book, David K. Cohen writes about the predicaments that teachers face. Like therapists, social workers, and pastors, teachers embark on a mission of human improvement. They aim to deepen knowledge, broaden understanding, sharpen skills, and change behavior. One predicament is that no matter how great their expertise, teachers depend on the cooperation and intelligence of their students, yet there is much that students do not know. To teach responsibly, teachers must cultivate a kind of mental double vision: distancing themselves from their own knowledge to understand students' thinking, yet using their knowledge to guide their teaching. Another predicament is that although attention to students' thinking improves the chances of learning, it also increases the uncertainty and complexity of the job. The circumstances in which teachers and students work make a difference. Teachers and students are better able to manage these predicaments if they have resources - common curricula, intelligent assessments, and teacher education tied to both - that support responsible teaching. Yet for most of U.S. history those resources have been in short supply, and many current accountability policies are little help. With a keen eye for the moment-to-moment challenges, Cohen explores what "responsible teaching" can be, the kind of mind reading it seems to demand, and the complex social resources it requires. The book is published by Harvard University Press.”How do you go about teaching teachers how to teach? David K. Cohen's Teaching and Its Predicaments takes on that paradox… Its descriptions of the task facing teachers are superb… His book offers a thoughtful account of the challenge.” (David A. Kaplan, Fortune)”Take the tour with David Cohen through Teaching and It 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gary L. Willprecht.

Is your IT system an asset or a hindrance to your organization's success? More important, can you tell the difference? Unlike other well-recognized professions, information technology is still in its infancy. Organizations have little hesitation in paying attorneys, accountants, or business strategists for their expertise. As individuals, we don't blink an eye while paying for a physician's opinion of our health. Yet business executives rarely think to request a professional opinion from an IT consultant. If organizations wish to succeed in the future, however, this practice needs to change. Business owners and executives often see IT departments as financial drains and necessary evils rather than as additions of value to their organizations. And IT professionals stereotypically are unable to effectively communicate the benefits of IT investments to the organization due to limited "soft" skills. But both have responsibilities to establish more-effective communication and understanding, so that overall goals can be alligned. With this book you will gain an understanding of how IT systems and tools can offer your organization the best chance to succeed. Additionally, you will appreciate the value of IT assessments and professional consultations. In today's global market, information is indeed the most valuable commodity. Knowing how to best manage your organization's information with effective and efficient IT systems is therefore essential. This book aims to equip you with this valuable knowledge and enable you to achieve the success you desire. The book is published by PFH Publishing. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tim Lundeen.
