Health against wealth : HMOs and the breakdown of medical trust by George Anders( Book )
10 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 1,244 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 )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 818 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

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

Why don't employers take a more optimistic view of people's potential' Why is there such a fixation on a few bullet-point highlights of candidates' resumes, to the point that most applicants are quickly cast aside as "not good enough"' Why is there such unwillingness to get to know what job seekers are all about' What if you could change the rules' What if you could capture the attention of employers who should be hiring you, persuading them to see you on your terms' Becoming a Rare Find will show you how to approach job hunting in ways that play to your strengths.

Finally, you will learn how to rearrange your social media profiles so that when great employers look for talent, they will find you
