|New from||Used from|
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

"This book is truly unique. Goldstein creates a story that has probably really happened to many business executives. The story is believable and the advice is sound."
"Carry this book with you for the next time you find an hour or two to read to be inspired and motivated to achieve success in your business."
"Goldstein, the former CEO of Shop.com, tells the story of business travelers Paul and Daphne engaging in 'barstool psychotherapy' about facts and foibles of business while waiting for their flight. Their conversation centers on 'what's up and what's next'. To frame your mindset substitute your name for Paul."
"Ken Goldstein has a remarkable background and experiences, and he shares his perspective through stories. Stories bring more than just context; they bring us in to the experience and enable us to participate in the story itself."
From the Inside Flap
"Dating back to Socrates, the arts have provided memorable examples of teachers we all wish we encountered at some point along the journey of life, who make us question our thinking and seek answers that might be right in front of us. Ken Goldstein has modestly created a fictional persona in Daphne and her charming, selfless encounter with Paul--a brief but powerful lesson that will last a lifetime. Endless Encores invites the reader to be a fly on the wall for their dialogue and chart a course for their own professional journey with the simple but powerful formula shared."
- Dan Sherlock, former President, Cinedigm Software and Baseline, Inc.
- Shelley Fisher Fishkin, Stanford University

The concept of discovering, recruiting, hiring and growing top talent that will deliver great product is a message that needs to he heard. It seems obvious but in my discussions with other executives in the Tech industry I most often hear “lead with great product the good people will follow.” To me, and to Goldstein, this defies logic.
The book takes the form of the classic Dialogue form between a more experienced older senior executive and a younger less seasoned development manager who realizes that the success of his previous work will not carry over his current project. The two meet in an airport lounge whilst awaiting a delayed departure. Each chapter moves through the primary lessons around the meaning of People, Products, Profits and why they must be followed in that order. The short book is well written and simple to grasp at any level. It can be used in organizational meetings and HR retreats to create a platform for discussion.
The part that resonates with me is People. How we discover talented and driven individuals, recruit, hire and then mentor them is one of the most difficult tasks a manager has in her job.
This is Ken Goldstein’s second book published by Story Plant. His first book is the thriller, “This is Rage,” which was very well received. Both books reflect the same business philosophy and I highly recommend both books.
In an era of radical transparency, "Endless Encores" is the instruction manual for 21st-century management. As employees are searching for the WHY before the WHAT, "Endless Encores" give managers and leaders a prescription to get the best work and engagement out of their teams.
FULL DISCLOSURE - I worked for Ken at one of his prior successes, so I have used these principals and teachings first hand. I have seen people challenged out of their comfort zones and move to performing at amazing levels.
I recommend this strategy to leaders to gain proven and sustainable growth and employee improvements.
