With a new foreword by Ken Blanchard An invaluable new strategy for creating enthusiastic employees, from the author of the bestselling The One Minute Manager. Every day thousands of uninspired employees trudge to work - often dooming their companies to failure with their lack of enthusiasm. Drawing on over 20 years' experience of working with hundreds of corporations across the US - including America Online, Eastman Kodak, General Motors, Hershey Chocolate and Microsoft - Blanchard reveals a sure-fire strategy for boosting employee enthusiasm, productivity and performance.

Gung Ho! presents a simple system for inspiring employees. Based on three core ideas: work must be seen as important, workers must be put in control of their own production and managers must cheer their workers on - it is a method that all employees and managers can easily implement and which has already been adopted by such major corporations as K-Mart.

The team-building book for the 21st Century. The author of One Minute Manager proves, with a parable, the guiding notion that "none of us is as smart as all of us". Ken Blanchard, author of The One Minute Manager, and his co-authors, do here for teamwork what Gung Ho! does for motivation and Raving Fans for Customer Service.

Using the entertaining and easily-digested parable style that made those books so successful, Blanchard et al have a simple but very powerful message to convey. They disclose four management secrets and highlight the key principles of "repeated reward and repetition". The story is about Alan, who gets fired, despite being highly successful, because of his lone wolf mentality.

He breaks through his initial resistance to new ways of working by spending some of the new-found time on his hands coaching his son's hockey team, and in the process learns all about the power of teamwork. An inspirational guide to the art of working successfully together (and the power that derives from being part of a team), this is an invaluable read for anyone who has to work with other people, from one of the world's most successful business authors.

The second edition of this authoritative textbook continues the tradition of providing clear and concise descriptions of the new and classic concepts in financial theory. The authors keep the theory accessible by requiring very little mathematical background. The first edition was published by Prentice-Hall in 2001 - ISBN 0130174467.

The second edition includes new structure emphasizing the distinction between the equilibrium and the arbitrage perspectives on valuation and pricing, as well as a new chapter on asset management for the long term investor. 'This book does admirably what it sets out to do - provide a bridge between MBA-level finance texts and PhD-level texts...many books claim to require little prior mathematical training, but this one actually does so. This book may be a good one for Ph.D students outside finance who need some basic training in financial theory or for those looking for a more user-friendly introduction to advanced theory.

The exercises are very good' - Ian Gow, Student, Graduate School of Business, Stanford University. This is a completely updated edition of a classic textbook that fills a gap between MBA level texts and PHD level texts. This book focuses on clear explanations of key concepts and requires limited mathematical prerequisites.

An online solutions manual is available.

First published in 1913, Richard Parry's Valuation and Investment Tables has since become an essential tool for students and professionals in the study and practice of valuation and appraisal. The book provides a comprehensive set of some 30 different valuation and investment tables in one volume. In practice today, calculations are required for a variety of purposes which often justify more than one approach.

With this in mind, Internal Rates of Return tables have been retained in a modified form. Using these tables, both growth and non-growth scenarios can be analysed for a more detailed appraisal of specific freehold property investments and to provide a basis for more in-depth investment advice. The Life Tables have been removed and replaced with a guide to calculating life interests from up to date census data.

Although the tables will be used mainly by students and practising surveyors, they will also be useful to accountants and others concerned with various types of investment and financial calculations. That the book has reached its centenary year and thirteenth edition is a testament to its acclaim by the valuation and property professions in an era of calculators, smartphones and sophisticated spread sheet software and furthermore a tribute to the historical importance of Parry's original vision and continued legacy. In celebration of this milestone year there will be a limited edition leather slip cased version of the book available.
