Shop class as soulcraft : an inquiry into the value of work by Matthew B Crawford( Sound Recording )
9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 413 libraries worldwide
On both economic and psychological grounds, Crawford questions the educational imperative of turning everyone into a "knowledge worker," based on a misguided separation of thinking from doing, the work of the hand from that of the mind. Crawford shows us how such a partition, which began a century ago with the assembly line, degrades work for those on both sides of the divide. He then offers a passionate call for self-reliance and a moving reflection on how we can live concretely in an ever more abstract world

The age curve : how to profit from the coming demographic storm by Kenneth W Gronbach( Sound Recording )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 109 libraries worldwide
In business, one thing is certain: what worked 15 years ago won't work today, and what works today will at some point in the future fall flat. Every 20 years or so a new generation is born, bound together by common wants, needs, motives, and events. As each generation ages, we all recognize that its members become ripe for consuming a changing array of products and services. But what most organizations fail to consider is that today's demand cannot be projected from yesterday's successes, because the one unchangeable and most dominant determinant of consumer demand is the size of the generation that is ripe for a given product or service. This groundbreaking book lets you in on the best ways to position your business to roll with changing populations of ripe consumers--including how to succeed despite the looming challenges posed by the relatively small Generation X, and leverage the explosive opportunities afforded by massive young Generation Y. With its simple yet profound insights (along with eye-opening examples of companies who succeeded or failed spectacularly in leveraging or weathering the demographic storm), The age curve will forever change the way you look at your business, and how you perceive the generational impact on the entire commercial (and political!) landscape. It will help you forecast far into the future with unprecedented clarity and accuracy and propel your business to entirely predictable long-term success
