Review:

“This excellent book offers valuable, thought-provoking ideas for library patrons.” (Booklist)

From the Back Cover:

We live in a world of dramatic and unpredictable change that is wiping out time-honored businesses and long-standing institutions while ushering in unprecedented opportunities for creative individuals and entrepreneurial organizations. The job is no longer figuring out how to win at the game of work and life; the job is figuring out the new rules of the game.

Alan M. Webber's Rules of Thumb is a guide for individuals in every walk of life who want to make sense out of these confusing, challenging, and compelling times. If you're looking for practical advice on how to win at work without losing your self, if you want to change your life to meet the challenge of change, or if you want to learn from some of the world's most interesting and creative people, let Alan M. Webber take you on a remarkable journey toward greater personal understanding and, ultimately, greater personal success.
