Amazon.com updates its list of the bestselling books every hour. Here is a snapshot of what is hot right now, May 9, in the “Organizational Behavior” section of the “Business and Investing” category.

1. Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard by Chip Heath and Dan Heath. The authors of Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die contend that our minds are ruled by two different systems — the rational mind and the emotional mind — that compete for control. The rational mind wants to change something at work; the emotional mind loves the comfort of the existing routine. This tension can doom a change effort — but if it is overcome, change can come quickly. In Switch, the Heaths show how everyday people — employees and managers, parents and nurses — have united both minds and, as a result, achieved dramatic results.

Shine: Using Brain Science to Get the Best from Your People

March 23, 2011 - by: Mike Maslanka 0 COMMENTS


Employment law attorney Michael Maslanka reviews Shine: Using Brain Science to Get the Best from Your People by Edward M. Hallowell and finds it offers good advice on finding a dream that matches your talents.
