Talent Is Not Enough from the Author: Danny Buderus. Danny Buderus is a record maker in the toughest rugby league competition in the world. The New South Wales captain in every match from 2004-2008, Buderus holds the record for most successive appearances (21) of any NSW State of Origin player as well as most as captain (15). Added to that he was unchallenged as Australia's Test hooker from 2001-06 when he controversially decided to stand down to witness the birth of his wife Kris' first baby. This is not a traditional autobiography tracking the career of the Dally M Medal winner and grand final victor from the Newcastle Knights, but a revealing insight into the pressures, demands and lifestyles of professional rugby league at the highest level. Buderus opens up like never before to take the footy fan behind the scenes - to his traumatic introduction to the captaincy of NSW in 2004, the match that saw Anthony Minichiello and Mark Gasnier sacked for drunken off-field behaviour; to how he endured a level of constant pain and injury that few players could have tolerated; and his views on why the international game needs an overhaul. He gives his views on why players are leaving the grind of the NRL for the English game or rugby union and a best-mate's insight into the game's greatest player Andrew Johns. He lists his most respected opponents, takes the reader into the heart of Origin battles and gives his perspective on the impact of the controversial clean-out of his beloved Newcastle Knights under coach Brian Smith. There is also plenty of humour and emotion and, mostly, genuine motivation for aspiring NRL players from one of the most respected and courageous players the sport has seen.

Smart Is Not Enough from the Author: Alan C. Guarino. The Information Age is OVER -- In business today, it is all about TALENT! "Smart Is Not Enough" explains the core issue of 21st century business. Forget technology - Forget outsourcing TALENT is the #1 challenge in your organization. Whether you're a CEO or an entry level college grad; whether you manage a staff or not, this book is for you. It can help in career planning, in developing your management strategy, or just help you understand the playing field in business today. Author Alan Guarino explains the full gamut of cutting-edge talent management, from how to find it, develop it, deploy it and lead it, to his South Pole Theory of "hidden talent" talent as a solution for the shortage of critical talent in the business world of the 21st Century. The South Pole Theory explains that traditionally, corporations biased their talent searches towards those who performed at the top of their academic classes. Yet, some of the most successful executives and business leaders weren't good students themselves. Grades aren't the only predictor of success in the real business world. This book shares techniques for finding those determined, dedicated go-getters who fall through the cracks when we judge them solely on academics. To compete in business today, top companies need to cultivate every available source of talent. This book shows business leaders how to find and capitalize on this special pool of talent-- the future versions of people like Paul Orfalea, founder of Kinkos, Wayne Huizenga of Blockbuster Video, and many others. Alan Guarino (Marlboro, NY) is CEO and co-founder of the executive search firm Cornell International. His firm is now owned by Adecco, the largest recruiting company in the world.

Die Frage ist nicht, wie jemand ist, sondern woher er kommt: Welche Bedingungen haben diesen Menschen hervorgebracht? Auf seiner anregenden intellektuellen Erkundung der Welt der Überflieger erklärt Gladwell unter anderem das Geheimnis der Softwaremilliardäre, wie man ein herausragender Fußballer wird, warum Asiaten so gut in Mathe sind und was die Beatles zur größten Band aller Zeiten machte.
