Management Unleashed: Leadership Lessons from my Dog
Diane Hanson

Marti is a young manager learning to lead her team effectively in today's fast-paced and rapidly-changing environment. Partly autobiographical, partly fiction, this fable provides insights to help you better understand behavior.

Throughout our leadership careers, we've frequently marveled at similarities in motivation and performance outcomes based on analogous techniques with team members, children and dogs. After all, we share common motivators: praise, attention, rewards and caring relationships.

A quick read with lasting, immediately-applicable insights, this book will have you recognizing behaviors in your employees, children, and pets-and these principles will enable you to deal effectively with professional and personal situations.


Hope & Maggie
Amy Norcross

Hope's once-doting husband, Harry, swept her off her feet twenty years ago. But with her marriage now deteriorating, Hope finds the excitement she craves in steamy one night stands every chance she gets. Why does her marriage take a back seat to her lust? And what will happen if Harry finds out?

Maggie is a self-proclaimed bookworm and lover of wine. She is also a happily single woman. Happily. Single. Until Brian. Because of a life-changing assault in college, she tries too hard to create an uncomplicated life for herself. When Maggie reluctantly surrenders to a relationship with Brian, a sexy college crush, she gradually uncovers the many secrets surrounding his life. Soon enough, her simple life is cluttered with infidelity and heartbreak.

Best friends since college, Hope and Maggie now run a chic, successful wine bar in New Jersey. The bar, CHILL, also serves as a venue for book clubs. It’s a dream come true for both women. But it’s also a playground for Hope’s wandering eye
