"I like that each section is succinct, practical, and tangible. There's a non-nonsense/cut to the chase about your books. So I can go for an hour walk and I've probably listened to a complete book and armed with insight and action. You talk to the listener as a human being, you are funny, I love the way you laugh at certain ideas that you are about to say, so basically you don't take yourself seriously, yet you come across as powerful. The way you talk sounds like you are probably ad-libbing parts which makes it engaging. I love the personal stories... so you are indeed human and people piss you off too ;-)" - H. Dunnett

You can’t understand humanistic business management unless you understand what humanism is. This book provides a short introduction to the philosophy of humanism and discusses how and why it is being applied to business and why it is so effective when you do so. Humanism helps us prioritize human value as important. It supports positive interpersonal relationships and collaborative and respectful decision-making. Since all businesses are in the business of solving problems, good problem solving is essential to good business.
Humanism has already transformed many other disciplines including psychology, medicine, nursing, and more. Additionally, humanism is foundational to the practice of human resources, without which businesses cannot operate. It is important for business managers to understand the philosophy fully so they can understand how to not only manage people more effectively, but how to operate their businesses in a way that helps the communities in which they operate. This book will provide the primer they need to create more effective and ethical businesses.

While there has been a lot written about grief, not much has been written from an explicitly Humanist perspective. The needs of a Humanist, while grieving, are slightly different from others because Humanists, being rationalists, refuse to allow themselves to be comforted by the false hope of reunion that is a staple of religious belief.
I decided to write this book to help people who are experiencing grief come to terms with it in a rational and compassionate way. After presiding over my first funeral as a Humanist officiant, I realized that a book on Humanist grief was needed. I felt the pain the bereaved were feeling and I longed to be able to provide them comfort.
I know that Humanism provides an excellent framework for coping with grief, but it is impossible to share all that I know about how Humanists approach grief during a funeral. It also wouldn’t do much good even if I could. The bereaved need ongoing support because grief is a process that takes time.
