    The missing link to long-term Lean success! Despite the fact that companies worldwide have adopted Lean production, none has sustained the same levels of excellence as Toyota. Why? Leadership. In The Toyota Way to Lean Leadership, Jeffrey Liker and Gary L. Convis, a former executive V.P. and managing officer of Toyota, help executives and senior managers get employees to refocus their efforts - from simply performing their singular function to continuously improving in collaboration across the organization.

  • Einstein: His Life and Universe

    Story
    (60)

    Based on the newly released personal letters of Albert Einstein, Walter Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk, a struggling father in a difficult marriage who couldn't get a teaching job or a doctorate, became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos, the locksmith of the mysteries of the atom and the universe. His success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marveling at mysteries that struck others as mundane.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Einstein?

    The biography was a little boring even thou many interesting points of his life. What made the biography a little slow is the description of all the physic laws and his experiences. Maybe for someone who enjoys more physics will find more interesting than I did.


    What three words best describe Edward Herrmann’s performance?

    Edward's performance is very good.
