In this straightforward and funny guide, John R. interprets the philosophies and stories of the Big Book for young people. Like many alcoholics and addicts, when John R. began his recovery at age seventeen, he was given a Big Book. At first he was reluctant to wade through the old-fashioned language and the stories about people he didn't think he could relate to. But, over time, he realized that the best way to get sober--and to stay sober--is to learn from those who have gone before us. And so he read Alcoholics Anonymous and took the first step toward changing his life. Today, with more than twenty years of sobriety, John is an adolescent chemical dependency counselor, showing addicts how the core messages of AA are as powerful and relevant to them as they have been to the millions of others who have gotten help for addiction over the years. With The 12 Steps Unplugged, he makes the Twelve Steps accessible to all of us.In this simple and often funny guide, he interprets the philosophies and stories of the Big Book in straightforward language that speaks to regular people. John will help you connect with the basic messages of getting honest with yourself, accepting the help of others, and finding a relevant spiritual support.Through The 12 Steps Unplugged, you'll discover just how universal the AA program really is.

Knowledge Unplugged announces the results of a major survey on knowledge management practice within the most influential companies in the world, by the most influential management consultancy group in the world. The McKinsey Knowledge Management team interviewed top executives and also investigated how far their plans were implemented in practise, in 40 companies in the US, Europe and Japan. In many companies they discovered a significant gap between the vision at the top and the reality on the shop floor. Knowledge Unplugged draws together their findings and presents a practical guide to improving knowledge building and sharing at all levels within an organisation, vividly illustrated with case studies of best practice and common pitfalls. It also goes further and challenges companies to abandon convention and to liberate Knowledge Management from the hands of the IT department! They argue that Knowledge management is much more than simply installing a new database and can only be successful when it is at the heart of everyday personal exchanges, personal incentives and personal responsibilities at every level of the firm.

64 Shots: Leadership in a Crazy World is a compendium of value-accelerators for business and life. It is gathered as a 64 shot method from the astute observations and remarkable life of creative business leader and iconoclast Kevin Roberts. A provocative figure traversing the peaks of global commerce, media and sport, Kevin Roberts - creator of the groundbreaking idea Lovemarks - is recognized as one of today's most uncompromisingly-positive and inspirational leaders. In 64 Shots, Roberts draws on the biggest ideas, toughest experiences and greatest influences of his life to present 16X4 stripped down, straight-forward and instantly-absorbable insights on how to bring order to the chaos of business and life. The punchy insights into winning - hitting readers lightly jab after jab - are an array of one-liners, sound bites, tweets, charts, quotes and historical reference points. They are loaded with Roberts' experience, story, brio, provocation and direction. The language is extreme, brimming with the irrepressible attitude and provocation that fueled Roberts' meteoric career. While there is a sequence, the 64 shots are stand-alone signposts towards living an enterprising and winning life. Anyone can dip into the book anywhere and find value. The writing is accompanied by (not necessarily linked to) a visual order of black-and-white photos of leaders in their cultural fields, some modern, many historical, some famous, and all personal. This eclectic selection of people are both direct and indirect influences to Kevin Roberts' life. They all have an interesting - and some mysterious - connection to concepts of leadership in a crazy world. Examples are: Mary Quant, Vince Lombardi, Margaret Thatcher, Vivienne Westwood, Twiggy, Tom Peters, Peter Drucker, Martin Luther King, Renzo Rosso, Brigit Bardot, Bob Dylan, Sean Fitzpatrick (a rugby player). The book is high touch and glossy. It feels like Apple, not Shakespeare. 64 Shots - will you take them?
