New `Who Moved My Cheese?; Obama, McCain, Vampires: Book Buzz
Barack Obama
Bloomberg - USA - ``The Dream Manager'' tells the story of a fictional cleaning company suffering from high turnover and low morale. When the firm institutes a new employee-loyalty program that involves listening to and helping workers achieve their personal aspirations, it undergoes a massive turnaround.

Australian motivational speaker and writer Matthew Kelly's brief new book may sound like another ho-hum business parable. Yet Barnes & Noble's Dave Hathaway says, ``It is going to start a movement.''

Hathaway, who as a buyer assesses thousands of business books every year for B&N (they're one of the bookseller's top five categories), isn't prone to hyperbole. But he maintains,

Business Books: Clean tech becomes big business
Reuters - USA - Clean technology is evolving from environmental issue to big business, opening a world of opportunities for companies, entrepreneurs and investors who see a chance to -- yes -- clean up, says a new book.

"Clean technology is everywhere," write Ron Pernick and Clint Wilder in "The Clean Tech Revolution: The Next Big Growth and Investment Opportunity" (Collins, $26.95).

They describe clean tech as "any product, service, or process that delivers value using limited or zero nonrenewable resources and/or creates significantly less waste than conventional offerings."

The main force pushing clean tech from "utopian dreams" to new Silicon Valleys and Wall Street is simple

A Business Based on Shopping and Drinking - USA - AT HANGER BAR & BOUTIQUE in Manhattan's East Village, martinis and vintage frocks make unexpected bedfellows. Yet, honey-infused rum seems to fit so seamlessly with Coco Chanel. Cucumber-spiked vodka pairs well with Halston.

Hanger, an unusual place where you can belly up to the bar or thumb through nearby racks of classic designer threads (all priced to sell), is not the great collision of bourbonistas and fashionistas as might be expected. Nor are there grenadine stains on the Lagerfeld: The stylish duds stay out between noon and 7 p.m., but get safely tucked into storage when the real crowd starts drinking

A Slacker's Guide to Fun and Profit
Wall Street Journal - USA - In 1991, Timothy Ferriss, then in his teens, landed his first job: cleaning an ice-cream shop. Despite his inexperience, he figured out a way to finish the chores of his eight-hour shift in one hour, which enabled him to spend the rest of his time "reading kung-fu magazines and practicing karate kicks outside," he writes in "The 4-Hour Workweek." His boss, inexplicably underwhelmed by the performance of the magazine-reading, high-kicking one-hour wonder, fired Mr. Ferriss after three days, telling him: "Maybe someday you'll understand the value of hard work." Sixteen years later, Mr. Ferriss writes with pride, "I still don't."

Business Books: Asian Godfathers--money, bets, and sex
Reuters - USA - They are rich, tight-fisted bullies with a penchant for gambling, a lust for multiple mistresses, and plenty of powerful political connections.

Meet the "Asian Godfathers," as author Joe Studwell, tongue-in-cheek, dubs many of the region's billionaires.

True, a few of them might feel at home with Tony Soprano. Tommy Suharto, the playboy son of former Indonesian president Suharto, did time in prison for ordering the murder of a Supreme Court judge, and others are rumored to have underworld connections.

But Studwell says the term is really meant to reflect the "traditions of paternalism, male power, aloofness and mystique that are absolutely part of

The Management Fruitcake Sampler
Washington Post - United States - I once had a boss who could put my stomach in knots just by walking past my desk. This person was so scary that even today, decades later, I still get chills thinking about her reign of terror.

Such management by fear is not uncommon in the business world, writes Stanley Bing in his newly revised book "Crazy Bosses." Unlike many business books, this one needs no subtitle.

"After nearly 6,000 years of evidence on the subject, one thing stands clear: The people who end up as leaders in any organization, large or small, are often the craziest guys around," Bing writes.

Business Books: US family tries living without China
San Diego Union Tribune - United States - Lamps, birthday candles, mouse traps and flip-flops. Such is the stuff that binds the modern American family to the global economy, author Sara Bongiorni discovers during a year of boycotting anything made in China.

In “A Year Without 'Made in China,'” (Wiley, $24.95) Bongiorni tells how she and her family found that such formerly simple acts as finding new shoes, buying a birthday toy and fixing a drawer became ordeals without the Asian giant.

Bongiorni takes pains to say she does not have a protectionist agenda and, despite the occasional worry about the loss of U.S. jobs to overseas factories, she has

Dubner Brings Freakonomics To The VARBusiness 500
CRN - Manhasset, NY, USA - In topics ranging from hand washing to monkey prostitution, Stephen Dubner brought the study of incentives to the VARBusiness 500 last week. Dubner, co-author of the best-selling business book, "Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores The Hidden Side of Everything," spoke at the VARBusiness 500 awards dinner in New York.

"Economics is the study of incentives," Dubner began, but warned that determining which incentives work can be quite challenging, and requires "asking unpopular questions" to truly change behavior. "Unless you know how the world is working now, it's hard to change it," he stated.

Much of Dubner's talk revolved around the example of

Manage people, not problems
New York Daily News - New York, NY, USA - A business associate sat down in front of me and unleashed a diatribe of frustration targeted toward the team he manages.

"They are entirely incompatible, unfocused," he bemoaned. "They are virtually impossible to manage. And their failure ultimately will become mine."

I looked him square in the eyes and said, "If that's your view of management, you're probably right; you're probably doomed to failure."

But the good news, I told him, was that a basic change in his approach to people management would probably take care of the majority of the problem within a few weeks.

Our discussion got me thinking about how important

Book Review: Time Power by Brian Tracy
Personla Finance Weblog - Palo Alto, CA, USA - I know time management isn't exactly personal finance, but in my worldview your personal financial condition comes about from more than whether you're a good saver and investor. It also comes about from having a good career that pays you a decent salary, and being a good time manager can help you get there, thus giving you more money, thus explaining why I'm reviewing Time Power by Brian Tracy. That said, let's sally forth...

In Time Power, Brian Tracy says you should ask yourself one question up front before worrying about how to get the most done in the least time:
