Who's Your City?: How the Creative Economy Is Making Where to Live the Most Important Decision of Your Life

by Richard Florida

It’s a mantra of the age of globalization that where we live doesn’t matter. We can innovate just as easily from a ski chalet in Aspen or a beachhouse in Provence as in the office of a Silicon Valley startup. According to Richard Florida, this is wrong. Globalization is not flattening the world; in fact, place is increasingly relevant to the global economy and our individual lives. Where we live determines the jobs and careers we have access to, the people we meet, and the “mating markets” in which we participate. And everything we think we know about cities and their economic roles is up for grabs.

The 7 Triggers to Yes: The New Science Behind Influencing People's Decisions

by Russell H. Granger

Introducing 7 scientifically proven ways to masterfully apply the skill of persuasion and get the results you want

Everybody knows that the best way to persuade people to reach the "Yes" response is by using logic and reason, right? Wrong. According to the latest research in neuroscience, most people respond to emotional cues rather than rational ones. Instead of using facts and figures to persuade, you should be tapping into the brain's internal triggers for making decisions. With the new technology of realtime brain imaging, scientists have been able to pinpoint seven of these emotional triggers.

Activating one or more of the other person's triggers will make you a master persuader in every aspect of your life. You'll learn how to motivate a "Yes" response from clients, coworkers, employees, and entire organizations.

Just say "YES" to success.
