5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
There is so much information in this book a review need only be brief."The Secrets of Economic Indicators" has the most accurate and concise definitions for terms, indicators, indexes, and general information about them than most other books on this topic.All of the contact information on these agencies and groups are provided.The brilliance in this book is its a) organization b) succinctness c) writing style.Written to point, and for the layperson.Easy reading.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Quick Guide to Venture Capital Thinking
This book, one claimed by the publisher to fall into the need-to-read category rather than the nice-to-read, is aimed at giving the businessman the information he needs to know to be able to hold an intelligent conversation with a venture capitalist.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book - But Even Better is Author DVD Called Negotiating Term Sheets & Valuations in VC Deals
This author definitely knows his stuff - but even better is author's new product called Negotiating Term Sheets and Valuations in Venture Capital Deals (ISBN 1597010987).It is a 100 minute DVD that has a lot of different material in it that is critical for doing venture capital deals.It also covers specific negotiation strategies and roles and motivations for each key deal participant - which is not covered in this book or the authors other book (Term Sheets & Valuations).

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed
After enjoying his first book, Term Sheets and Valuations, I was looking forward to this one.I regret to say that I found it a big waste of time and a bigger waste of money.

5-0 out of 5 stars it's "all that and a bag of chips"
This is a demanding high school (or undemanding college) introductory textbook on the subject.Only the most rudimentary algebra is required, and honestly one could easily get through the book without even that.
5-0 out of 5 stars Simply put, the best economics textbook on the market
UPDATE:This is the 3rd edition.The 4th edition just came out, and it is excellent.I have read every page, and will post a review as soon as I have time.But in the meantime, do not buy the 3rd edition.(I'm not sure why Amazon is still selling this now outdated edition.)

5-0 out of 5 stars Clear and compelling
This book spells out in a clear and compelling fashion the challenges that American workers face in our global economy, and what can be done to stop the American dream from disintegrating any further.
5-0 out of 5 stars Finally!
Finally, a book that tells the truth about what is really happening to the middle class in this country -- and more importantly, gives common sense solutions that could really turn America around. That's probably because it is written -- not by someone who has spent his life in academia or in politics or talking on TV or radio -- but on the front lines actually fighting to make work pay for working families. He's looked both employers and working people in the eye, and that makes all the difference. This book is interesting, personal, and visionary.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best of its Kind
Informative, visionary, yet personal.This book is the work of a brilliant individual who is passionate about his subject.His views cover not only the story of labor,then, now and in the future, but its interconnection with governments and economies throughout the world. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars must buy
It's a must buy for people in high-yield/distressed analysis. I was suggested this book at my first day at work.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Complete Introduction
The premise of this book is really quite simple.
5-0 out of 5 stars Valuable insights, useful commentary, and professionally written.
Like many of us, perhaps you've owned some bonds that have fallen into junk status or worse, distress/bankruptcy.In most cases, did you throw up your arms either selling at a loss or confused by smallprint mail solicitations?Stephen Moyer is an absolute pro and de-mystifies what some may think of as a blackbox only understood by investment specialists, asset pirates, and/or bankruptcy lawyers.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good Book ? Yes....For Self Study? NOOOOO !!
I am doing a self study and do not have any facility to get help of any instructor. I purchased the book after got good reference from some of my friends. The content of the book is pretty good...BUT when it comes to the problems...there are a very very few worked out examples (as usual they are the easiest ones)...Addition to that the publisher decided to earn every bits of pennies. So they created a Student's solution manual. No where in the publisher's site anything mentioned about the manual. But when I purchased , found that the manual has solution for ONLY Odd numbered solution (for them the answers are given in the original book). I was wondering whether they have another solution manual for EVEN numbered problems...!!!

The book arrived in a timely manner and it was in the condition that I expected.I would order from this vendor again.

2-0 out of 5 stars Expensive and Confusing
The layout and language of this extremely expensive textbook, written by one of the most seasoned and successful PR practitioners, unfortunately makes this book almost unreadable. Not only is it completely boring, but the language makes the topics seem very vague and disconnected from practical PR practice.

4-0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfect
Everything written is a bullseye with the exception of glaring ignorance regarding Six Sigma - what it is and isn't.What is written relative to Lean here should be taken verbatim as applying to Six Sigma also - there is no difference.Similarly, the written characterizations of Six Sigma should be ignored.To quote Senji Nihwa, Taiichi Ohno's lieutenant at Toyota for decades, in a good-natured ribbing, "You Americans, always trying to categorize things.Call it Lean, call it Six Sigma, it makes no difference to us...it's all the same."And so it is.
3-0 out of 5 stars Thumbs up!
Thumbs up, but I'd recommend you attend his workshops over the book if the opportunity presents itself.
5-0 out of 5 stars Highly Recomended for anyone interested in Product Development
For anyone interested in the next stage of Product Development -- this is a must read.The Toyota system encorporates what I felt has been missing in the product development process for so long.It takes into account the chaos that exists during development and actually encourages it instead of covering it up.

5-0 out of 5 stars Reviews, anyone?
This is an excellent textbook, one that I have used in two of my Environmental Science classes (namely, Environmental Problems of Man [Bio 11], and Energy for the Future [Envi Sci 1].) While not completely without bias (which is mostly subtle, and not totally incorrect), the book offers a solid introduction to many environmental issues. The introduction chapter of the textbook states that environmental science is interdisciplinary, and the book is laid out accordingly. Chapters run the gamut from biology, chemisty, simple physics, and pure ecological common sense. An excellent purchase for any serious scientist and/or conscientious environmentalist.

1-0 out of 5 stars hmm
I'm kinda dissappointed because the seller stated that this book is hardcovered. But when I received it, it was copied and paperback.

They sent me the wrong book. I ordered theFinite Mathematics for Business Economics, Life Sciences and Social Sciences (10th Edition)by Raymond A. Barnett and received the solution manual. I feel very disapointed with this purchase.
1-0 out of 5 stars NOT USER FRIENDLY!
I am using this textbook for my Math for Business and Economics class and it is terrible.This book is not written taking into consideration the audience "Business Majors". Concepts are better explained in the Chapter review than under the sections they are being presented.There is only 1 example for each new concept and definitions are written using one or two definitions of new concepts within it.If this book is intended to take the student from the abstract concept to the real world it sure doesn't do this.I understood the material better in my Intermediate Algebra class than I do now.

4-0 out of 5 stars Sound choice for a finite math textbook
This is a very sound choice as a textbook for a course in finite mathematics. The coverage is appropriate, the level suitable for the non-math major, the explanations are excellent and the authors take the title seriously. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars ...like giving or getting Galileo's book on the solar system as a Christmas gift in 1632
My professional work involves evaluating money managers and trying to "understand" a manager's skill vs luck and where the manager might fit in an overall portfolio.So I have spent 30+ years slashing my way through the jungle made by academics who think they can put markets and reality into nice, predictable models; and worse, listening to the sales pitches of money managers and other financial salesmen who want you to believe they are predictably worth paying very high fees and subjecting your money to untold risks.
3-0 out of 5 stars interesting but too long and arrogent
The author has some interesting things to say on randomness and probability and how it effects our day to day life. However what could have been an interesting long essay does not a book make! Furthermore he is really annoying in the way he makes snide and unjustified remarks about various people. For example - he may think Buffet is a lucky fool and he may be right (I do not understand the markets enough to judge this one). However he doesn't stop there. He goes on to attack Buffet for living a moderate life style (so what) and ends with musing if money isn't importent for Buffet why doesn't he become a monk or a social worker. Well this was before Buffet gave away most of his fortune and I hope Taleb is suitably shamed. I suspect this guy is fueled by envy and probably an inferiority complex (as he comes across as sooo superior).
3-0 out of 5 stars Oh, what could have been
As someone with a taste for statistical theory, this one was disappointing.Taleb is constantly casting around for what exactly he wants to write about.Yes, he passably develops his theory that people read far too much into random events.He does this through a series of personal stories, which unto themselves are entertaining.But, it's never clear if he's writing an autobiography or discussing randomness and I came away from this book no more enlightened about randomness than I had been before.If you are a novice in the area and are looking for a light introduction on the subject, it's a good book.If you're already familiar with the concept of randomness, don't bother. ...

This book has very little to teach you and it's virtually unreadable. Make sure you read one or two pages before you buy in case you are like me and you can't stand his style.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great, but Swensen's New Book is Better
This book covers the HOW and WHY of diversification.While everyone claims to understand diversification, there have been few individuals or institutions that have actually applied the concepts as well as Swensen.
4-0 out of 5 stars solid primer on institutional money management
Swenson's reputation was made by the investment results he has generated, which in turn are based on good insights and steely discipline in managing a portfolio.That said, he could have used an editor on this book.His prose style is almost a mockery of a business presentation - here's what he's going to say, he says it, and then a recap of what he said.Still, his style, with its absolute emphasis on clearly communicating to the reader, is a huge improvement over quasi-academic articles in the Journal of Finance.

If I were to be deprived of all the trading books in my collection but one, that would beThe Encyclopedia. Unlike other literature on the patterns, in this book you will not find clauses like "most of the time", "usually", "seldom". All the information as it'srelated to the pattern trading is thoroughly backtested.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Conflict Resolution Lessons
In particular, the lessons you can learn about identifying and resolving conflicts are absolutely priceless.This and Corporate Canaries are MUST buys if you are a manager in any sort of capacity!

5-0 out of 5 stars The story is everything
For books like this to work, they have to have both an engaging storyline and real-world characters.This book has both, and I found myself re-learning a lot about dealing with change, managing difficult people, and understanding how different types of people have different styles of working.The group discussion questions in the back are particularly useful.I will probably suggest that my whole department get copies and read it together.There are some on my team who need a little coaching, and this is a very non-threatening way to deal with difficult issues.Great job!

5-0 out of 5 stars Lessons from the Hive
Charles Decker is vice president of an electronic publishing company, does work with business publishing initiatives, and has coauthored Beans: Four Principles for Running a Business in Good Times or Bad.Lessons from the Hive is about a fictionalized organization that is reinventing itself and was created to teach positive ways of viewing changes in an organization, how to deal with fears of the unknown, the importance of trust, and how to deal with conflicting interpersonal relationships. It is of the business-fable genre that uses a week-in the-life approach for five players in an organization including a recently installed CEO, a newly hired employee, and a seasoned director of marketing with personal struggles at home and at work.

Editorial Review

Celebrated economist Jeffrey Sachs has a plan to eliminate extreme poverty around the world by 2025. If you think that is too ambitious or wildly unrealistic, you need to read this book. His focus is on the one billion poorest individuals around the world who are caught in a poverty trap of disease, physical isolation, environmental stress, political instability, and lack of access to capital, technology, medicine, and education. The goal is to help these people reach the first rung on the "ladder of economic development" so they can rise above mere subsistence level and achieve some control over their economic futures and their lives. To do this, Sachs proposes nine specific steps, which he explains in great detail in Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars At least it got people talking about global economics...
I really wanted to love this book. It came strongly recommended by a good friend who is very interested in development work.Whenever I read a review I always try and figure out what angle the reviewer is coming from, so for the record I'm deeply interested in development work and I have a background in economics and environmental science, but mostly I'm just really well read.
4-0 out of 5 stars why we lost the poor
The End of Poverty is an excellent book. It shows how economic thinking can provide a better wealth situation in the underdeveloped world. Jeffrey Sachs describes his last twenty years on development economics. He is the driving force behind the mayor developments in Bolivia and Poland. The book contains his experiences in Bolivia, Poland and Russia. If you introduce economic measures in these countries you can take a big step to let the people help themselves. But if you go to Africa, it seams that these measures are really not the first aid you can give them.
4-0 out of 5 stars Historic Opportunity for Our Generation
Through clear illustrations and calculations, Jeffrey Sachs lays out a very optimistic and compelling argument that extreme poverty can be ended within our generation. Two major requirements of this plan are the rich nation's commitment to debt relief and their honoring of their promises to dedicate a meager 0.7% of GNP to Official Development Assistance (ODA). If properly invested in infrastructure, health, and education (a topic well covered in the book), these funds could put the extremely poor back on the economic ladder towards growth and development. Sachs sites numerous success stories such as the Marshall Plan and the eradication of African River Blindness and Smallpox where sufficient funding and dedication successfully accomplished development objectives.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must for all traders!
Not knowing much about trading I bought the book. It equiped me with the basics like trading times all over the world, brief history of Foreign Exchange and so musch more. After studing the book, I was confident and ready to trade. There are many online clsses on FX trading, but the amazing thing about this book is how one can relate to it. No matter what your idea or statergy you follow, the answers are in this book.
3-0 out of 5 stars Good when taken into context
I have had the pleasure of seeing Kathy Lien speak twice at Forex seminars.She is very intelligent and has a wonderful personality.You will find some interesting and informative content in this book that can be useful in your educational path in Forex. But it is important to keep in mind that the book is written not by a trading entrepreneur but by a representative of one of the largest Forex brokers.To become a successful trader it is essential to recognize the vast difference in agenda between winning traders and brokers.The entire industry is driven by brokers and almost all material available on learning to trade is tied directly or indirectly to the broker industry whose agenda is to teach trading strategies that make the most money for THEM. Because the industry is unregulated, brokers are able to get away with many less than ethical practices. For instance, it is ironic that another reader mentions how Kathy covers the subject of the "carry trade" in detail.The last time I spoke with FXCM I discovered to my shock that they had adopted the policy of charging a negative interest regardless of which direction one was trading which I believe should be criminal. But there is no regulating agency to prevent them from doing that. Neither the CFTC nor the NFA actually regulate the activity of Forex brokers. Some other brokers, refuse to publish their interest rates or display them in their trading platforms so they can change them behind the scenes every day according to what benefits them the most.You may notice that others have a negative interest that is twice as much as their positive interest. All of this is part of the overall objective to keep the majority of traders focused on day trading which makes the most money for brokers. Studying trading material published by brokers is like asking a casino owner how to gamble.Most of the trading "mentors" are also introducing brokers who make money when you trade. A word to the wise, is that if you intend to succeed in Forex trading consider looking to sources of information that are not tied to any broker such as other traders who have learned to master this arcane art.

5-0 out of 5 stars Practical Guide to Making Money in Forex
I had been looking for a book with currency-specific technical analysis techniques that I could recommend to the many people who are looking for such information. There was a book by Cornelius Luca with a similar title that went out of print. Now used copies are selling for as much as $1700. This one is far better and more useful.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great...with minor flaws
If you are already familiar with TA, then the strength of this book lay not in the standard discussion of patterns and indicators/oscillators. Instead, the main strength is to be found in the well-described trading setups that the author covers...setups that I have found to be quite profitable (when combined with proper risk-management, of course)
4-0 out of 5 stars Read First - for beginners
This book covers the basics of FX market first, then going through each standard TA tools one by one, as on how they apply to FX.If you have read books on TA already, you may find it really basic, even it keeps using FX trades as examples.
