Health against wealth : HMOs and the breakdown of medical trust by George Anders( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 1,358 libraries worldwide
Wall Street Journal reporter George Anders explains why managed care is so appealing to employers and insurers and how HMO bureaucrats can thwart necessary, even life-saving treatment under the guise of cost efficiency. Health Against Wealth takes an unflinching look at the profit-hungry entrepreneurs who have poured into this new "health industry" and provides alarming examples of political manipulation by increasingly powerful HMO lobbyists. At the same time, the book explores the hopes and frustrations of people in the health-care system: patients facing life-threatening crises, renowned doctors humbled by the constraints of the new medical bureaucracy, disillusioned social planners who genuinely thought they had found a better way to provide health care. Anders concludes with a compelling list of corrective measures that can make the managed-care revolution work in the public interest. He recommends a new round of consumer activism, tighter regulation of HMOs' ways of paying doctors and hospitals, and the creation of independent review boards to help make decisions about complex cases. He also calls for redefining the term "emergency" to ensure fuller coverage in a crisis; holding HMOs accountable for their mistakes through the courts; and forming doctor-employer partnership that can bypass HMOs entirely
Perfect enough : Carly Fiorina and the reinvention of Hewlett-Packard by George Anders( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 848 libraries worldwide
Recruited in 1999 to run Hewlett-Packard, the legendary company that helped invent Silicon Valley, Carly Fiorina promised big changes from the moment she arrived. For twenty years, she had consistently won over those who doubted her. And at HP she believed she could connect two hostile cultures, remaking the high-tech pioneer while staying true to the HP Way, the old-fashioned values of company founders Bill Hewlett and David Packard. Her zesty new style would be "perfect enough." In 2001, she entered an epic struggle with Walter Hewlett, son of HP's late cofounder, over the company's destiny and her stunning plan to merge with archrival Compaq. For months Fiorina and Hewlett battled in the boardroom, in the media, and, ultimately, in court. They couldn't stop until one side destroyed the other. In this fascinating human drama, George Anders draws on unmatched sources to reveal Fiorina to be both braver and more vulnerable than outsiders ever realized. And he discloses the role played by a powerful recluse in Idaho: the only person at HP who could bridge the old era and the new
Merchants of debt : KKR and the mortgaging of American business by George Anders( Book )

For more than a decade, Henry Kravis and George Roberts have been archetypes, first of Wall Street's boom years and then of its excesses. Their story and that of their firm--the biggest, most successful, and most controversial participant in the age of leverage--illuminates an entire era of financial maneuvering and speculative mania. Kravis and Roberts wrote their way into the history books by concocting one giant takeover after another. Their technique: the leveraged

The rare find : how great talent stands out by George Anders( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 38 libraries worldwide
Anyone who recruits talent faces the same basic challenge, whether we work for a big company, a new start-up, a Hollywood studio, a hospital, or the Green Berets. We all wonder how to tell the really outstanding prospects from the ones who look great on paper but then fail on the job. Or, equally important, how to spot the ones who don't look so good on paper but might still deliver extraordinary performance. In a tough economy, it's more important than ever to make every talent decision count. George Anders sought out the world's savviest talent judges to see what they do differently from the rest of us. He reveals how the U.S. Army finds soldiers with the character to be in Special Forces without asking them to fire a single bullet. He takes us to an elite basketball tournament where the best scouts are watching the players who don't have the ball. He talks to researchers who are reinventing the process of hiring Fortune 500 CEOs. Anders reveals powerful ideas you can apply to your own hiring. And in a new chapter for the paperback, "Becoming a Rare Find," he explains how to flip these strategies and make sure your talent isn't missed
