The 80/20 principle is the cornerstone of results-based living. Read this book and use it. — Tim Ferriss, author of 'The 4-Hour Workweek'
For the 20th-anniversary edition [Koch] has added new chapters that bring it right up to date. Much has been written about the New Economy over the past couple of decades and a lot of it has been found to have been misguided,... but Koch seems to have put his finger on one of the things that marks out the real winners in this new era... networks. We should be grateful that, thanks to Koch and those whose ideas he has built upon, we have a better notion of what is going on. — Roger Trapp, Forbes
A classic... the 20th anniversary edition that has been rewritten and warmed up to address how the world has changed since the digital revolution. But the 80/20 rule itself remains as rock solid as it was when it was first described by 19th-century Italian engineer Vilfredo Pareto. A genuine management must-read. — E&T magazine
Time management is not about organising your daily tasks, it is about organising your essential daily tasks, and dumping the rest. Koch has made millions from this - a bestseller based on just one idea - proving that it works. — GQ's 25 Best Business Books
Congratulations! The 80/20 Principle is terrific. — Al Ries
There are ideas in here that could change your life. — The Good Book Guide
Both astute and entertaining, this is an intriguing book to help people concentrate on not wasting their lives. — Professor Theodore Zeldin, St Anthony's College, Oxford

Money

Rob Moore
Authors:
Rob Moore

Do you want to get to the stage - soon - where you are truly financially independent, able to use your money in the way you'd like, and be completely confident in your ability to take care of yourself and your family? That is a universal desire, but many of us regard wealth and financial independence as a goal which we'll likely never achieve - there are just too many bills that need paying and there is a widespread belief that the money game is rigged. Even people who win the lottery or inherit money often seem to wind up losing it. The evidence suggests you can't win a game that you don't understand - even if you start out winning - because you never understood the game in the first place.So how can you win with money? How can you create independent wealth and hold on to it? This inspiring book by self-made multi-millionaire Rob Moore explains the rules of the game, shares simple tricks for managing money better, details how to create a plan for an ambitious future, and shows you the very best way to become a millionaire - to think and behave like one!

Beta: Quiet Girls Can Run the World

Rebecca Holman
Authors:
Rebecca Holman

What does success look like? 5AM conference calls and late nights in the office? Winning every argument in the office and always getting your own way? What does a successful woman look like? The shoulder-pad wearing Alpha? The dogmatist who rules with an iron fist? The reality is far more nuanced. Yet women are still pigeonholed as Alpha boss, or Beta secretary or assistant. When 47% of the workforce are reduced to two unhelpful stereotypes, how can you embrace your inner Beta and be a success on your own terms? It's an important question because the world is changing, fast. Successful companies need people who can lead with emotional intelligence, be flexible to new ideas and adapt their plans when required, leaving their ego at the door. The Beta woman's time is now. Beta celebrates the collaborators, the pragmatists, and the people who believe that being nice works and getting your own way isn't always the most important thing. It is a call-to-arms that explores the unsung workforce of Beta women who are being great bosses, great leaders and are still living their own lives: having relationships, making time for friends, having families. Beta inspires confidence and will help you in the workplace.Fully researched and rich with interviews, anecdotes and case studies, Beta is a smart and entertaining read that really explores the role of women in the workplace today.
