Description : Social Security law has changed! Get What’s Yours has been revised and updated to reflect new regulations that took effect on April 29, 2016. Get What’s Yours has proven itself to be the definitive book about how to navigate the forbidding maze of Social Security and emerge with the highest possible benefits. It is an engaging manual of tactics and strategies written by well-known financial commentators that is unobtainable elsewhere. You could try reading all 2,728 rules of the Social Security system (and the thousands of explanations of these rules), but academia’s Kotlikoff, the popular press’s Moeller, and public television’s Solman explain the Social Security system just as comprehensively, and a lot more comprehensibly. Moreover, they demonstrate that what you don’t know can seriously hurt you: wrong decisions about which Social Security benefits to apply for cost individual retirees tens of thousands of dollars in lost income every year. (Some of those people are even in the book.) Changes to Social Security that take effect in 2016 make it more important than ever to wait as long as possible (until age 70, if possible) to claim Social Security benefits. The new law also has significant implications for those who wish to claim divorced spousal benefits (and how many Social Security recipients even know about divorced spousal benefits?). Besides addressing these and other issues, this revised edition contains a chapter explaining how Medicare rules can shape Social Security decisions. Many other personal-finance books briefly address Social Security, but none offers the full, authoritative, yet conversational analysis of Get What’s Yours. Get What’s Yours explains Social Security benefits through basic strategies and stirring stories. It covers the most frequent benefit scenarios faced by married retired couples; by divorced retirees; by widows and widowers. It explains what to do if you’re a retired parent of dependent children; disabled; an eligible beneficiary who continues to work. It addresses the tax consequences of your choices, as well as the financial implications for other investments. It does all this and more. There are more than 52 million Americans aged 54 to 69. Ten thousand of them reach Social Security’s full retirement age of 66 every day. For all these people—and for their families and friends—Get What’s Yours has proven to be an invaluable, and therefore indispensable, tool.

Description : “Building upon his previous empirical critiques, Tom Slee explains how ‘sharing economy’ companies have used feel-good rhetoric to mask illiberal and irresponsible business models.” —Chris Jay Hoofnagle, lecturer in residence; faculty director, Berkeley Center for Law & Technology “The Sharing Economy frames its critics as Luddites, bureaucrats and rent-seekers, but Tom Slee is none of these. A thoughtful technologist, Slee paints a well-researched picture of companies that have built up massive market valuations by externalizing their costs and sidestepping regulations designed to protect consumers. This book is clear-eyed and important.” —Sue Gardner, former executive director of the Wikimedia Foundation “Tom Slee's essential new book shows that the sharing economy has very little to do with sharing. Slee uses wit, clarity, and facts to demolish the self-serving mythologies of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and figure out what Uber, Amazon and their kind are really up to.” —Henry Farrell, co-chair, Social Science Research Council's Digital Culture Initiative; professor of political science and international affairs, George Washington University “In this lucid and rigorous book, Tom Slee dismantles the facade of the sharing economy, revealing hidden and often troubling truths about companies like Uber and Airbnb. If you want to understand how internet businesses really operate, What’s Yours Is Mine is the place to start.” —Nicholas Carr, author of The Shallows and The Glass Cage “In a field crowded with tech-utopian blowhards and app-happy snake oil salesmen, Tom Slee stands apart. His laser-sharp insights about the real impact of popular start-ups on our livelihoods and communities are the perfect antidote to sharing economy hype. What’s Yours Is Mine is required reading for anyone interested in technology and economic justice.” —Astra Taylor, author of The People’s Platform: Taking Back Power and Culture in the Digital Age The news is full of their names, supposedly the vanguard of a rethinking of capitalism. Lyft, Airbnb, Taskrabbit, Uber, and many more companies have a mandate of disruption and upending the “old order”—and they’ve succeeded in effecting the “biggest change in the American workforce in over a century,” according to former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich. But this new wave of technology companies is funded and steered by very old-school venture capitalists. And in What’s Yours Is Mine, technologist Tom Slee argues the so-called sharing economy damages development, extends harsh free-market practices into previously protected areas of our lives, and presents the opportunity for a few people to make fortunes by damaging communities and pushing vulnerable individuals to take on unsustainable risk. Drawing on original empirical research, Slee shows that the friendly language of sharing, trust, and community masks a darker reality.

Description : Rich or poor, young or old, high school or college grad, this book, written by economist Laurence J. Kotlikoff and syndicated financial columnist Scott Burns, can change your life for the better! If you follow the advice in this book, it will raise your living standard (possibly by a lot), improve your lifestyle, and help you spend 'til the end. And it will completely transform your financial thinking, turning every bit of conventional financial wisdom on its head. If this sounds like a revolution in financial planning, you got it. So do The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Time, Consumer Reports, and other top publications that have been featuring the authors' economics-based "consumption smoothing" approach to financial planning. Spend 'Til the End substitutes economic wisdom for the "rules of dumb" that currently pass for financial advice. In the process it indicts the investment and financial-planning industry for giving most people saving and insurance targets that are much too high and then convincing them to invest in risky mutual funds and expensive insurance policies. The result is that most people are scrimping and saving during the years when they could be spending and enjoying their money -- and with no sure payoff. Easy to read, this book is packed with practical and often shocking advice on whether to work, how to pick a career, which job to take, where to live, what sort of house to buy, how much to save, when to retire, which kind of retirement account to use, whether to have kids, whether to divorce, when to take Social Security, how fast to spend down your assets in retirement, and how to invest.
Description : Did you have that one class in school where no matter how hard you studied you always seemed to struggle? Regardless of the effort you put in, the grades just never came easily if at all. Did you also find there was another subject that was the opposite, where you just sailed through and “got it” with little to no effort? In each case, there was probably someone else in the class who was the opposite, because individual talents are unique to everyone. This isn’t just true of school, but basically all of life. Every one of us can name things that we are naturally good at and therefore do well and enjoy doing (e.g., being creative, solving problems, socializing, etc.). We can name lots of things we are not good at as well (e.g., being proactive, attention to detail, delegating, etc.). This book asks the following questions: • Where do these natural talents and preference come from • How do they affect our professional and personal successes • Can they really be measured • Can they be leveraged to achieve greater success with less effort Based on an enormous database containing tens of millions of pieces of information that represents seven years of research conducted on more than 300,000 people on 5 continents, and over 10,000 personal interviews; this book also answers these questions...and the answer to all of them is – YES! This book does two very significant things: first it focuses on one of the most vital yet least understood aspects of success...decision-making. Unlike many other treatments on individual success that focus on behavior, personality or intelligence, “What’s Your Genius” paints a clear picture, perhaps for the first time, of our subconscious decision-making process and how it directly affects our success. Secondly, this book uses real-life examples of some of the most successful people in their respective fields to support the findings that achieving success is directly dependent on how authentic we are to our decision-making styles. Those who understand and are more aware of how they prefer to make decisions, and in what environments that style fits best, achieve greater success with less effort. This skill can be for anything. For some it is their uncanny ability to see the flaw in any strategy, or understand someone’s emotions or fears. For others it is an ability to always see the big-picture on the playing field or just intuitively diagnose the mystery illness. The key in all of these individuals is that they know what they are good at, and they ensure that their success is dependent on those strengths, not their weaknesses. It is this authenticity that aligns everything they do with everything they are naturally good at, and when this happens they truly are genius at what they do. Based on how we think and make decisions, everyone has the ability to be a genius when it comes to making certain kinds of decisions, it just requires knowledge and proper alignment of what you do well with what you try to do. The most successful among us have somehow managed to figure this out and made sure their goals and dreams depend on what they do well and nothing else. Most of us wouldn’t decide to major in that class where no matter how hard we tried we just always struggled; so why would we do the same in our career? “What’s Your Genius” will show you if this is a trap you have fallen into and teach you how to make sure you don’t anymore.
Description : What's Your Green Goldfish is based on the simple premise that employees are the key drivers of customer experience and that "Happy Employees Create Happy Customers."

The book is based on the findings of the Green Goldfish Project, an effort which crowd sourced 1,001 examples of signature added value for employees. Key themes emerged from the Project. The book is filled with over 200 examples. PRAISE FOR WHAT'S YOUR GREEN GOLDFISH "Stan is the sherpa that guides executives along the journey between the heart and mind of business stakeholders.

Pick this up, and start engaging your team and making more GREEN - Phil Gerbyshak, author of The Naked Truth of Social Media "Our large-scale research shows unequivocally that engaged employees are more likely to work longer, try harder, make more suggestions for improvement, recruit others to join their company, and go out of their way to help customers. They even take less sick time. Companies can tap into the enormous value of engaged employees by following the 15 ideas that Stan lays out in this book." - Bruce Temkin, author of The Six Laws of Customer Experience "Too often, the actual employment experience delivered on the job does not measure up to the version sold to job candidates during the interview process. In What's Your Green Goldfish, Stan Phelps offers 15 ways to close the gap." - Steve Curtin, author of Delight Your Customers: 7 Simple Ways to Raise Your Customer Service from Ordinary to Extraordinary (AMACOM, June 2013) "In What's Your Green Goldfish, Stan Phelps brilliantly applies the idea of 'doing a little something extra' for employees. You know, those people that actually get the work done and keep customers happy. Read it, put some of the ideas to work, and soon you'll be reaping more 'green' from your customers." - Bob Thompson, Founder and CEO, CustomerThink Corp.
