Amazing book. While there are newer books written on competition, as we all know, they all started after reading Porter. I strongly suggest reading this book as a fundamental base to competition.
Opening Up: A Guide to Creating and Sustaining Open Relationships
The go-to guide for non-monogamy info
Tristan's books are always fabulous, but this one blows everything out of the water. While former polyamory books such as the Ethical Slut have found their way onto bookshelves across the nation, Opening Up looks at a whole variety of non-monogamy, making for a perfect guide for anyone and everyone, even if they decide that monogamy is actually the right choice for them. It's formatted in a ...

Peter Senge did an excellent job of confronting this challenge and suggesting some practical and useful ideas to achieve change in ...
Cengage Advantage Books: Sustaining the Earth
G. Tyler Miller
Well written and thoughtful
I am a college student taking an Enviromental Science class that uses this text book. All the things you will need or want to know about the Earth's sustainable enviroment and how it shapes our lives is not enough to learn in one semester or quarter, but the author G. Tyler Miller JR. does a great job of condensing a LOT of important information into this text. One of the great things is that ...

Finding Organic Church: A Comprehensive Guide to Starting and Sustaining Authentic Christian Communities
David C. Cook
Finding Organic Church
I have not finished reading the book yet, but what I could see and understand, Frank did an awesome job of gathering Biblical evidence as to how a church should function. I would give my opinion that 95% of the churches mix man's philosophy with the Word of God, making the worship of no effect.
The Innovator's Solution: Creating and Sustaining Successful Growth
Clayton M. Christensen
Michael E. Raynor
Harvard Business Press
Indispensable Insight into Entrepreneurial Growth
This was required reading for an MBA Entrepreneurial Growth class. It quickly became the reference to almost every case that we discusssed. It is one of the best books I've ever read.

How can the reigning behemoths ...
Flow in the Office: Implementing and Sustaining Lean Improvements
Excellent Lean Addition to your Library
There aren't many good books that show you how to practially implement lean in the office. Most are based on theories, or just tell you the principles are the same. They are of course, but this book is very useful especially if you are trying to convince reluctant people. Both lean leaders, facilitators, and those trying to learn about lean can learn from this excellent resource. Looking ...

The Medical Marriage: Sustaining Healthy Relationships for Physicians and Their Families
Wayne M. Sotile
Mary O. Sotile
American Medical Association Press
you are not alone
As the spouse to a physician, I have always wondered if our relationship was unique. After reading this book, I realized the answer is yes and no. Yes, it is unique in that I am married to a physician which has its own set of characteristics. And No, it isn't unique among other medical marriages. We are not alone when it comes to spouses who are driven, perfectionists, and OCD to name a few. ...
Clear Leadership, Revised Edition: Sustaining Real Collaboration and Partnership at Work
best EmotionaI Intelligence how-to so far.....
Busche does a masterful job of applying the theory of EI at the very nuts and bolts heart of what touches our EI buttons. He offers original tools and frameworks that make it possible for anyone to learn, apply, practice and master "leadership" (mastery of ourselves so that we can be effective in our interactions with others). This book is as much a how-to requiring absorption in small bites ...
Gaining and Sustaining Competitive Advantage (3rd Edition)
PERSPECTIVE IS EVERYTHING
This is a great book - more for what it organises than what it adds as new ideas. Barney sets a model for Competitive Advantage (VIRO) and them compares strategic models as potential sources. It places many of the modern attempts in perspective. Without this starting understanding, the modern gurus (Hamel) are almost impossible to apply as their ideas lack the perspective on the role of ...
Resilience Thinking: Sustaining Ecosystems and People in a Changing World
Brian Walker PhD
Gem of Useful Education
This is a gem of an educational book. Mixing case studies with elaborating chapters on key concepts, it's as a good a volume as I have found for teaching undergraduates, graduates, and practitioners (farmers, factory managers, investors) the core ideas needed to restore a sustainable social-ecological system. Highlights for me: + Optemization is a false premise, simplifies complex systems ...
