    For the past 50 years, the business world has been dominated by the Milton Friedman financial capitalism economic model, which preaches that it is the "sole social responsibility of business to maximize profit for distribution to shareholders". This one-dimensional focus represents a grossly incomplete view of reality - there are many other factors businesses need to pay attention to if they are to thrive and endure.

    Gawande is a decorated surgeon and Harvard professor. In his most intriguing work yet, he addresses the ultimate tension in modern medicine between saving and extending lives and providing a good quality of life for those who are dying. He writes logically and passionately that quality of life, not longer life, is what the dying really want, offering both data and poignant stories to support his argument. He also provides examples of more patient-focused models for caring for the elderly.

    Typically people react emotionally more severely to an exploited conflict of interest when a person gains a personal benefit such as through a bribe. If company, or even an office or department, stands to benefit inordinately, American society typically looks the other way on the institutional conflict of interest rather than taking it apart. This may just be human nature. However, the troubling institutional arrangements within an organization or between them may be tolerated because of the erroneous assumption that conflicts of interest are unethical only when they are exploited.

    The financial crisis that peaked in the United States during the fall of 2008 is an excellent case study of what can go wrong with leadership and corporate governance - in business, financial ethics, government regulation directed both at the firm level and at that of the financial system itself, and legal accountability for the culprits.

    The collection begins with a series of essays on Lehman Brothers, with particular attention to its last CEO, Richard Fuld....

He hopes that help will come fast - his child is severely injured and the crippling weather pattern rages on, making them pawns in Mother Nature's game.

    A superb success as a bird, combining great speed, aeronautical grace, and fearlessness - inhabitant of wild places, inaccessible cliffs, and skyscrapers... worldwide dweller, trans-equatorial migrant, and docile captive - the peregrine falcon stands alone among all others of its kind. Perhaps this is why so many varied people rushed to its aid when it faced decimation by pesticide poisoning.

    The appeal of the strong-man ruler, sailing in from on high to fix a broken system is nothing new. It was the same charismatic "champion-of-the-people" sales pitch that brought anti-democratic dictators such as Hugo Chavez, Mussolini, and the Kim family to power in the 20th century. While not qualified or temperamentally fit for the presidency, Donald Trump is a remarkable salesman. He's also a decent brand-advocate and an accomplished con-artist.

    Imagine a town where the people perpetually live in the 1950s, a place where time has all but stopped and where everyone loves his family, job, and life. In this strange place, only a select few people ever leave the city limits, and even then they leave reluctantly. This is what 15-year old Benjamin Granault faces as, through a string of amazing events, he finds himself living in a town where he can never talk about modern technology or current events.

    In this bold and hopeful book, theologian Daniel C. Maguire writes that traditional, supernatural aspects of Christianity can be comforting but are increasingly questionable. A century of scholarly research has not been supportive of the dogmatic triad of personal god, incarnate savior, and life after death. Demonstrating that these beliefs have questionable roots in historical traditions, Maguire argues for a return to that brilliant and revolutionary moral epic of the Hebrew and Christian Bible.

    In the near future, Africa collapses into an enormous failed state, leaving the continent lawless and severely depopulated. For most, the breakdown brings horror, but for others - the outcast, the desperate, the criminal, and the insane - it allows unparalleled opportunity: a new frontier of danger and unlimited possibility. In America, ex-Navy SEAL Slade Crawford, emotionally crippled after 20 years of front-line combat, the dissolution of his marriage, and the accidental death of his son, is falsely accused of terrorism.
