Thrown Under the Omnibus: A Reader by P. J. O’Rourke

Thrown Under the Omnibus: A Reader by P. J. O’Rourke
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 4.1 MB
Overview: P. J. O’Rourke has had a prolific career as one of America’s most celebrated humorists. But that career almost didn’t happen. As he explains it, "I began to write for pay in the spring of 1970. To tell the truth I didn’t even want to be a writer, I meant to be a race car driver, but I didn’t have a race car."

Fortunately for us, he had to settle for writing. From his early pieces for the National Lampoon, through his classic reporting as Rolling Stone’s International Affairs editor in the ’80s and ’90s, and his brilliant inimitable political journalism and analysis, P.J. has been entertaining and provoking readers with high-octane prose, a "pants-down Republican" attitude, and a rare ability to make readers laugh out loud. Chris Buckley once described his work as "S. J. Perelman on acid," and when Penguin published its Dictionary of Modern Humorous Quotations, P.J. had more entries than any other living writer. For the first time, Thrown Under the Omnibus brings together his funniest, most outrageous, most controversial, and most loved pieces in the definitive P.J. reader. Selected and introduced by the humorist himself, Thrown Under the Omnibus is the essential P. J. O’Rourke anthology-a must-have for any fan.

Blue Ocean Strategy Reader by W. Chan Kim, Renée A. Mauborgne

The W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne Blue Ocean Strategy Reader: The iconic articles by bestselling authors W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne by W. Chan Kim and Renée A. Mauborgne
Requirements: .PDF reader, 670 Kb
Overview: The best of W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne’s articles on blue ocean strategy, all in one place.

The seminal book Blue Ocean Strategy has sold over 3.6 million copies globally and is in print in 46 languages. But much of W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne’s work on creating new market spaces was originally published in the pages of Harvard Business Review. This book brings the best of those articles together all in one place.

Piece by piece, these articles explain the process of creating “blue oceans”–uncontested market spaces, untainted by competition. Kim and Mauborgne introduce tools for exploring and exploiting these markets, such as the Value Curve, the Strategy Canvas, the Price Corridor of the Mass, and the Business Model Guide-tools that have come to make up the blue ocean strategy framework. This collection also features the authors’ latest Harvard Business Review article, “Red Ocean Traps.”

Whether or not you’re familiar with blue ocean strategy, this book will give you a new perspective on this important framework-and help you implement it in your organization.

This volume includes the articles “Value Innovation: The Strategic Logic of High Growth,” “Fair Process: Managing in the Knowledge Economy,” “Creating New Maket Space,” “Knowing a Winning Business Idea When You See One,” “Charting Your Company’s Future,” “Tipping Point Leadership,” “Blue Ocean Strategy,” “How Strategy Shapes Structure,” “Blue Ocean Leadership,” and “Red Ocean Traps: The Mental Models That Undermine Market-Creating Strategies.”
Genre: Non-Fiction > General Business

Postmodernism: A Reader by Thomas Docherty

Postmodernism: A Reader by Thomas Docherty
Requirements: .PDF reader, 14.6MB
Overview: The arguments over postmodernism are among the most important intellectual debates of our time. Going beyond the poststructuralist controversy in its interdisciplinary scope, postmodernism questions the fundamental civil, political, ethical, and cultural criteria that make criticism and theory available, necessary, legitimate, or, indeed, even possible. But given that the key texts are widely scattered, the broad range of arguments remains relatively unknown.
Genre: Non-Fiction > Faith, Beliefs & Philosophy
