"I am still waiting for my father to talk to me about sex and success, money and marriage, religion and raising kids. Since he died in 1991, I guess I don't have much chance of ever benefiting from all the lessons he learned in life. It's not that he was a bad dad; he was just a quiet one." The opening lines of Wisdom of Our Fathers describes a regret that grew into this blessing of a book. Joe Kita's sense that he had missed a chance to learn from his father led him to a journey through the hearts of other men with some mileage on them. He talked to bartenders and doctors and salesmen, professors and farmers and teachers, lawyers and pastors, a 70-year-old who held the senior record for the 100-meter run, even a 93-year-old who had gone to Antarctica with Admiral Byrd. His questions were basic: What's the key to happiness? How do you find God? When should you marry? What's the one thing in life you shouldn't miss? What matters? Their answers were straight from the heart. Wisdom of Our Fathers makes a joyful, manly sound, gathering the lessons these men learned, through blunder and success, at war and at home, through love, loss, and just plain keeping on. A book of reminiscence and inspiration, it's a story of perspective and passion, a harvest of lives deeply lived.

Lieutenant Colonel Jay Kopelman won the hearts of readers everywhere with his moving story of adopting an abandoned puppy named Lava from a hellish corner of Iraq. He opened the door for other soldiers to bring dogs home, and in From Baghdad to America, Kopelman once again leads the pack with his observations on the emotional repercussions of war. Here, for the first time, Kopelman holds nothing back as he responds to the question, “Why did you save a dog instead of a person?” The answer reveals much about his inner demons—and about the bigger picture of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He talks about what it’s like to return to the States and examines the shocking statistics to come out of Iraq: Depression, suicide, alcohol abuse, and broken relationships are at record highs for the men and women who serve there. Kopelman credits Lava with helping him to endure combat and the pain of war, as well as helping him deal with the surprising difficulties of returning to everyday life. Civilians have a hard time understanding what being a Marine means, and the adjustment to living among them is hard for these soldiers. This book attempts to shed light on that for all readers.

Since 1854 the Victoria Cross has been the highest award for gallantry in the British Armed Forces. It bears the simple legend 'For Valour', but behind it are thrilling and ultimately humbling tales of unimaginable bravery. SUPREME COURAGE tells the tales of some of those who have won the medal, bringing this badge of honour alive with breath-taking accounts of courage in action. Visiting battle-scenes across the globe, peppering his accounts with letters and first-hand accounts, Sir Peter de la Billière uncovers not just heroism but the hearts and minds of men. With his accounts of Australians, Canadians, New Zealanders, Indians and the Gurkhas, Sir Peter de la Billière does more than accompany the man into battle. He reveals their backgrounds, the climate of their times, what it was that drove them on, and the price of fame - the burden of expectation in civilian life that accompanied more than one recipient to a pauper's grave. Extraordinary and intensely moving, SUPREME COURAGE is a thrilling addition to the literature of war, and a unique and magnificent monument to heroism.

Armut und Chaos, Resignation und Gewalt, Drogen und Alkohol: In diesem Teufelskreis befinden sich viele weiße Arbeiterfamilien in den USA – entfremdet von der politischen Führung, abgehängt vom Rest der Gesellschaft und damit anfällig für die einfachen Lösungen von Populisten. Früher konnten sich die „Hillbillys“, die weißen Fabrikarbeiter etwa aus Ohio oder Kentucky, erhoffen, kraft ihrer Arbeit zu bescheidenem Wohlstand zu kommen. Doch spätestens gegen Ende des 20sten Jahrhunderts zog der Niedergang der alten Industrien auch die Arbeiterfamilien in eine Abwärtsspirale, aus der die meisten bis heute keinen Ausweg finden. J. D. Vance ist es anhand der Geschichte seiner Familie wie keinem anderen gelungen, diese ausweglose Situation und die Krise einer ganzen Gesellschaft eindrücklich zu schildern. Sein Buch bewegte Millionen von Lesern in den USA und erklärt nicht zuletzt den Wahltriumph eines Donald Trump.



Gute Chefs essen zuletzt

Ohne ein gutes, verlässliches Team könnten viele Führungskräfte ihre Ziele niemals erreichen. Doch leider werden viele Teams von internen Machtkämpfen, Streitigkeiten und den daraus resultierenden Misserfolgen ausgebremst – und die Führungskräfte schaffen es dann oft auch mit Leistungsanreizen oder Belohnungen nicht, ein Team wieder in die Spur zu bekommen. Doch warum sind hier manche Vorgesetzte oft erstaunlich hilflos? Die Antwort wurde Simon Sinek während einer Unterhaltung mit einem General des Marine Corps offensichtlich. Dieser erläuterte die Tradition: »Offiziere essen immer zuletzt." Was in der Kantine noch symbolisch gemeint ist, wird auf dem Schlachtfeld todernst: Gute Anführer opfern ihren eigenen Komfort, sogar ihr eigenes Leben, zum Wohl derer, die ihnen unterstehen. Sinek überträgt diese Tradition auf Unternehmen, wo sie bedeutet, dass die Führungskraft einen sogenannten Safety Circle, einen Sicherheitskreis, bilden muss, der das Team vor Schwierigkeiten von außen schützt. Nur so bildet sich im Unternehmen eine vertrauensvolle Atmosphäre. Der Sicherheitskreis führt zu stabilen, anpassungsfähigen und selbstbewussten Teams, in denen sich jeder zugehörig fühlt und in denen alle Energie darauf verwendet wird, die gemeinsamen Ziele zu erreichen. Chefs, die bereit sind, als letzte zu essen, werden mit zutiefst loyalen Kollegen belohnt und schaffen so konfliktfreie, motivierte und erfolgreich Teams.
