The Man Who Knew

The definitive biography of the most important economic statesman of our time Sebastian Mallaby's magisterial biography of Alan Greenspan, the product of over five years of research based on untrammeled access to his subject and his closest professional and personal intimates, brings into vivid focus the mysterious point where the government and the economy meet. To understand Greenspan's story is to see the economic and political landscape of the last 30 years--and the presidency from Reagan to George W. Bush--in a whole new light. As the most influential economic statesman of his age, Greenspan spent a lifetime grappling with a momentous shift: the transformation of finance from the fixed and regulated system of the post-war era to the free-for-all of the past quarter century. The story of Greenspan is also the story of the making of modern finance, for good and for ill. Greenspan's life is a quintessential American success story: raised by a single mother in the Jewish émigré community of Washington Heights, he was a math prodigy who found a niche as a stats-crunching consultant. A master at explaining the economic weather to captains of industry, he translated that skill into advising Richard Nixon in his 1968 campaign. This led to a perch on the White House Council of Economic Advisers, and then to a dazzling array of business and government roles, from which the path to the Fed was relatively clear. A fire-breathing libertarian and disciple of Ayn Rand in his youth who once called the Fed's creation a historic mistake, Mallaby shows how Greenspan reinvented himself as a pragmatist once in power. In his analysis, and in his core mission of keeping inflation in check, he was a maestro indeed, and hailed as such. At his retirement in 2006, he was lauded as the age's necessary man, the veritable God in the machine, the global economy's avatar. His memoirs sold for record sums to publishers around the world. But then came 2008. Mallaby's story lands with both feet on the great crash which did so much to damage Alan Greenspan's reputation. Mallaby argues that the conventional wisdom is off base: Greenspan wasn't a naïve ideologue who believed greater regulation was unnecessary. He had pressed for greater regulation of some key areas of finance over the years, and had gotten nowhere. To argue that he didn't know the risks in irrational markets is to miss the point. He knew more than almost anyone; the question is why he didn't act, and whether anyone else could or would have. A close reading of Greenspan's life provides fascinating answers to these questions, answers whose lessons we would do well to heed. Because perhaps Mallaby's greatest lesson is that economic statesmanship, like political statesmanship, is the art of the possible. The Man Who Knew is a searching reckoning with what exactly comprised the art, and the possible, in the career of Alan Greenspan.

“The most important leadership tool you have is not your education, your experience, or your know-how. It’s your heart. In this book, Mark provides a clear prescription for using yours to become the kind of leader people want to follow.” —Michael Hyatt, New York Times bestselling author and former CEO, Thomas Nelson Inc. “Mark once again demonstrates the power of a simple story well told. The Heart of Leadership will serve leaders around the world for decades to come.” —Dr. Henry Cloud, leadership consultant, psychologist, and bestselling author of Boundaries and Necessary Endings “ The Heart of Leadership is a delightfully surprising read. Mark Miller’s wisdom shines in his ability to convey profound truths simply and clearly. This book propels leadership beyond strategies and techniques to its most authentic form—who you are.” —Dan Rockwell, author and owner of the Leadership Freak blog, consultant, and pastor “Mark Miller has crafted a masterwork. Too many books on leadership are about selfishly getting ahead. This book addresses the leader’s heart. By addressing the heart, you do get ahead, but it’s a more satisfying journey.” —Nancy Duarte, author of Resonate and CEO, Duarte Designs “This book will help you reach your leadership potential, espousing good principles that most learn only through the school of hard knocks—and many never learn at all.” —Ron Wallace, former President, UPS International “Mark Miller has done it again! Another outstanding book—this time on the most important aspect of leadership: who you are as a leader. If you focus only on skills, you are ignoring 90 percent of what makes a great leader. —Jesse Lyn Stoner, coauthor of the international bestseller Full Steam Ahead! “ The Heart of Leadership addresses the primary stumbling block for leaders – themselves!   If you want to improve how you lead others, you must first improve how you lead yourself. This great little book shows you how. —Daniel S. Harkavy, CEO and Executive Coach, Building Champions, Inc. ' The Heart of Leadership extends and deepens the bestselling leadership models pioneered by Mark Miller.  This book is clear, compelling, and of real practical value. Keep it on hand  -- a small investment of time will yield a lifetime of dividends, in life as well as career.  —Jeff Rosensweig, Associate Professor of International Business and Finance and Director of Emory University’s Goizueta Business School and Global Perspectives Program ‘There's a difference between potential leaders with raw talent and great leaders with real influence. Mark's book reveals the foundational difference -- it's all about leadership character.” —Tony Morgan, author, Chief Strategic Officer and founder of TonyMorganLive.com “Mark Miller’s The Heart of Leadership immediately creates a place for personal discovery. As I read each page, I was no longer thinking of  “Blake” the main character, but myself. Blake’s journey of discovery became my own. This is about the “life” of leadership and how it reaches within and without having profound and long-lasting impact. It’s about being unselfishly driven and highly motivated. It is about how others within the workplace and within our lives benefit from our personal resolve to lead from the perspective that others matter.” —Clifton L. Taulbert, Author of Eight Habits of the Heart and President, The Freemount Corporation/Building Community Institute “There are so many buzzwords in business that claim to be the answer to all leadership woes. The truth is that leadership is all about the people, and to have success with people, read The Heart of Leadership, and watch your leadership soar to a whole new level.” —Todd Nielsen, author and COO

Getting More

This new model of human interaction has been chosen by Google to train the entire company worldwide (30,000 employees), is the #1 book for your career chosen by The Wall Street Journal's website, and is labeled 'phenomenal' by Lawyers' Weekly and 'brilliant' by Liza Oz of the Oprah network. Based on more than 20 years of research and practice among 30,000 people in 45 countries, Getting More concludes that finding and valuing the other party's emotions and perceptions creates far more value than the conventional wisdom of power and logic. It is intended to provide better agreements for everyone no matter what they negotiate - from jobs to kids to billion dollar deals to shopping. The book, a New York Times bestseller and #1 Wall Street Journal business best seller, is based on Professor Stuart Diamond's award-winning course at the Wharton Business School, where the course has been the most popular over 13 years. It challenges the conventional wisdom on every page, from 'win-win' to BATNA to rationality to the use of power. Companies have made billions of dollars so far using his new model and parents have gotten their 4-year-olds to willingly brush their teeth and go to bed. Prof. Diamond draws from his experience as a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist at The New York Times, Harvard-trained attorney, Wharton MBA, U.N. Consultant in many countries and manager and executive in many sectors, including technology, agriculture, medical services, finance, energy and aviation. 'The ROI from reading Getting More will make it the best investment you make this year,' says Rhys Dekle, the business development head of the Microsoft Games division, which produces X-Box. He added that the book was his team's best investment of the year too. The model was also used to quickly solve the 2008 Hollywood Writer's Strike. The advice is addressed through the insightful stories of more than 400 people who have used Prof. Diamond's tools with great success: A 20% savings on an item already on sale. An extra $300 million profit in a business. A woman from India getting out of her own arranged marriage. Better relationships with the family, including teenagers. Raises at work. Better jobs. Dealing with emotional situations. Meeting one's goals. Finding better things to trade. Solving cultural and political problems, sports conflicts, and ordinary arguments. The book is intended to be used in any situation. The most common response is 'life changing', beginning on page one. 'The most inspirational book I have read this year' said David Simon, an attorney in San Francisco, CA. 'This book can change the world,' says Craig Silverman, Investment Advisor, Long Island, NY

Accounts Receivable Best Practices

Praise for Accounts Receivable Management Best Practices 'An excellent reference tool on how to manage the accounts receivable process for any company. The use of real-life examples makes the concepts easy to understand. I recommend the book to anyone who wants to improve cash flow and reduce bad debt loss.' -Michael E. Beaulieu, Senior Vice President, Finance Cardinal Health 'Rather than simply explaining how to get the greatest return from an investment in accounts receivable, John G. Salek reveals how companies shoot themselves in the foot when management sets policies and procedures without consideration of the impact on cash flow. Accounts Receivable Management Best Practices isn't just for credit and collection professionals who often spend more time cleaning up process errors and other corporate 'garbage,' instead of managing risk. It should be required reading for C-level executives, the sales staff, operations managers, and anybody else whose job impacts the order-to-cash cycle.' -David Schmidt, Principal, A2 Resources Coauthor of Power Collecting: Automation for Effective Asset Management 'Enhancing a company's competitive profile is all about giving enough customers the right product, at the right price, at the right time. This author's real-world approach to accomplishing this goal through the prism of receivables management makes this book a must-read for those companies looking to make their mark as an organization that cares about its customers as well as their own need to produce financial results.' -Bruce C. Lynn, Managing Director The Financial Executives Consulting Group, LLC 'I have worked with John Salek since 1992, both as his client and as a project manager working with his organization. His knowledge of receivables management . . . the technology, the processes, and the formula for success . . . are unsurpassed in the field.' -Stephen L. Watts, Manager, Global Receivables (retired) General Electric Medical Systems 'Mr. Salek has written a masterpiece on the intricacies and management of the accounts receivable portfolio. I would recommend this book to CFOs, controllers, treasurers, credit managers, and small business owners.' -Steve Kozack, Credit Manager Lennox Hearth Products 'Written by an author who has been in the trenches and cites actual examples. This is not written in theory, but from practice.' -Milt Dardis, Collection Consultant Dardis & Associates
