    Demand is exceeding our capacity. The ethic of "more, bigger, faster" exacts a series of silent but pernicious costs at work, undermining our energy, focus, creativity, and passion. Nearly 75 percent of employees around the world feel disengaged at work every day. The Way We're Working Isn't Working offers a groundbreaking approach to reenergizing our lives so were both more satisfied and more productive, on the job and off.

    Story

    I was pleasantly surprised by this book. The performance was solid. He did a great job of explaining the charts that are included the book. Most importantly, the content was incredible.

    I'm the type of person that tries to squeeze every hour out of the day. This year I cut back on sleep so that I could fit in more time for my faith, family, fitness, job, etc. I was getting 4-6 hours per night but still felt like I wasn't getting everything I wanted out of the day.

    This book brought to my attention some simple ideas on how to structure time for work, and more importantly, to also structure time for renewal. Tony uses a series of matrices to help you identify where you're spending time and where you should be spending your time.

    If you feel as though you're burning the candle at both ends, this books is for you.

    Negotiation impacts every aspect of our lives, from the deals we strike on the job, to our relationships with family members and neighbors, to the transactions we make as customers. Yet most people do anything they can to avoid negotiating—it makes them uncomfortable, nervous, even frightened. This plague of negotiaphobia is what Don Hutson and George Lucas are here to remedy.

    Story

    I never thought much about negotiations, In fact, I thought that "negotiations" only happened durring a big purchase or a big event like accepting a new job. Well was I ever wrong! This book opened my eyes to the negotiation process, and in doing so, helped me see that negotiations are a part of my everyday life.

    The performance was great and the content was concise and insightful.
