A taste of success from the September list....

Scenarios for success : turning insights into action / Bill Sharpe and Kees Van Der Heijden.

Scenarios for Success delivers a unique and coherent account of the state of the scenario planning art. It is aimed particularly at those trying to implement its findings. Striking a balance between theory and practice, the contributors show how and why the core techniques of scenario thinking have endured and are still valuable, while bringing new tools and processes that keep scenario planning in touch with modern realities.

How to succeed in law school / Gary A. Munneke. 4th ed.

"Updated to reflect today's law school experience, How to Succeed in Law School gives you the head start you'll need as you prepare to enter law school. The author describes the day-to-day law school experience, tells you which subjects you'll be taking, and advises on ways to develop the habits that will enable you to excel. He also offers tips on handling the inevitable stresses that are a part of law school. If law school is in your future, you need to read this book." Book jacket.

Winners in the second half : a guide for executives at the top of their game / Julie Perigo

It's a book for all those who've achieved success - and worry about what comes after that. And for readers for whom success no longer feels so enthralling now they are in the later-career phase and are looking for more to their life. It's for those in the Second Half who are wondering, "What's next?" or "I don't even know what I really want to be doing". Or who are caught in a mindset that the Second Half is about decline and depression rather than opportunity and significance.
