The Einstein of Money: The Life and Timeless Fi...

Even in 2012, Ben Graham is still a hero to me - Warren Buffett (from the author's interview with Buffett for The Einstein of Money) Warren Buffett has repeatedly acknowledged Benjamin Graham, a man he personally studied and worked under, as the primary influence on his investment approach. Indeed, there is a direct line between the record-shattering investing performance of Buffett (and other value investors) and Graham's life. In six books and dozens of papers, Graham—widely known as the "Dean of Wall Street"—left an extensive account of an investing system that, as Buffett can attest to, actually works! In The Einstein of Money, author and business consultant Joe Carlen educates the listener on Graham's most essential wealth-creation concepts (as selected by Buffett himself), while telling the colorful story of Graham's amazing business career and his multifaceted personal life. As the author shows, Graham was a brilliant innovator in many areas—from devising a new currency to writing a Broadway play. His complex personality combined impeccable professional ethics with a checkered, even wild, romantic life. Carlen's biography distills the best from Graham's extensive published works (including his candid memoirs, released in 1996) and draws from the author's interviews with Warren Buffett, Charles Brandes, other top US and global value investors, Graham's surviving children and friends, and select finance professors and authors. In this manner, The Einstein of Money weaves Graham's transformational ideas into the narrative of a momentous life and legacy. Warren Buffett once said, "No one ever became poor by reading Graham." By the same token, no one will ever become poor, bored, or uninspired by listening to Carlen's lively, informative biography of Benjamin Graham and his time-tested techniques for generating wealth. 1.

Requirements by Collaboration

'I spend much time helping organizations capture requirements and even more time helping them recover from not capturing requirements. Many of them have gone through some motions regarding requirements as if they were sleepworking. It's time to wake up and do it right-and this book is going to be their alarm clock.' -Jerry Weinberg, author of numerous books on productivity enhancement 'In today's complex, fast-paced software development environment, collaboration-the intense peer-to-peer conversations that result in products, decisions, and knowledge sharing-is absolutely essential to success. But all too often, attempts to collaborate degenerate into agonizing meetings or ineffectual bull sessions. Ellen's wonderful book will help you bridge the gap-turning the agony of meetings into the ecstasy of effective collaboration.' -Jim Highsmith, a pioneer in adaptive software development methods 'Requirements by Collaboration presents a wealth of practical tools and techniques for facilitating requirements development workshops. It is suitable-no, essential reading-for requirements workshop facilitators. It will help both technical people and customer representatives participate in these critical contributions to software success.' -Karl Wiegers, Principal Consultant, Process Impact, author of Software Requirements 'The need for this particular book, at this particular time, is crystal clear. We have entered a new age where software development must be viewed as a form of business problem solving. That means direct user participation in developing 'requirements,' or more accurately, in jointly working the business problem. That, in turn, means facilitated sessions. In this book, Ellen Gottesdiener provides a wealth of practical ideas for ensuring that you have exactly the right stuff for this all-important area of professional art.' -Ronald G. Ross, Principal, Business Rule Solutions, LLC, Executive Editor, 'Gottesdiener's years of software development experience coupled with her straight-forward writing style make her book a perfect choice for either a senior developer or a midlevel project manager. In addition to her technical experience, her knowledge of group dynamics balance the book by educating the reader on how to manage conflict and personality differences within a requirements team-something that is missing from most requirements textbooks...It is a required 'handbook' that will be referred to again and again.' -Kay Christian, ebusiness Consultant, Conifer, Colorado 'Requirements by Collaboration is a 'must read' for any system stakeholder. End users and system analysts will learn the significant value they can add to the systems development process. Management will learn the tremendous return they may receive from making a modest time/people investment in facilitated sessions. Facilitators will discover ways to glean an amazing amount of high-quality information in a relatively brief time.' -Russ Schwartz, Computer System Quality Consultant, Global Biotechnology Firm 'In addition to showing how requirements are identified, evaluated, and confirmed, Ellen provides important guidance based on her own real-world experience for creating and managing the workshop environment in which requirements are generated. This book is an engaging and invaluable resource for project teams and sponsors, both business and IT, who are committed to achieving results in the most productive manner possible.' -Hal Thilmony, Senior Manager, Business Process Improvement (Finance), CiscoSystems, Inc. 'Project managers should read this book for assistance with planning the requirements process. Experienced facilitators will enrich their knowledge. New facilitators can use this book to get them up to speed and become more effective in less time.' -Rob Stroober, Competence Development Manager and Project Manager, Deloitte &Touche Consultdata, The Netherlands 'While many books discuss the details of software requirement artifacts (for example, use cases), Ellen's new book zeros in on effective workshop techniques and tools used to gather the content of these artifacts. As a pioneer in requirements workshops, she shares her real-life experiences in a comprehensive and easy-to-read book with many helpful examples and diagrams.' -Bill Bird
