This never-before-published, fast-paced, and funny novel is now available in a deluxe hardcover edition, illustrated by Hayley Lazo. Alcatraz Smedry has successfully defeated the army of Evil Librarians and saved the kingdom of Mokia. Too bad he managed to break the Smedry Talents in the process. Even worse, his father is trying to enact a scheme that could ruin the world, and his friend, Bastille, is in a coma. To revive her, Alcatraz must infiltrate the Highbrary--known as The Library of Congress to Hushlanders--the seat of Evil Librarian power. Without his Talent to draw upon, can Alcatraz figure out a way to save Bastille and defeat the Evil Librarians once and for all? “Like Lemony Snicket and superhero comics rolled into one.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

The Talent Delusion Book Excerpt:

'This book shows how to find, attract, develop, motivate, and retain stars. It's full of evidence and provocative ideas to help every talent leader' Dr Adam Grant, Wharton Professor, New York Times bestselling author, Originals and Give and Take 'This is the book I want to hand every manager I've ever worked with . . . Every chapter is filled with quotes, findings, and ideas that I want to post on Twitter and share with the world' Dr. Todd Carlisle, VP of HR, Twitter WHY THE SCIENCE OF PEOPLE IS YOUR KEY WEAPON IN THE WAR FOR TALENT All organisations have problems, and they nearly always concern people: how to manage them; whom to hire, fire or promote; and how to motivate, develop and retain high potential employees. Psychology, the main science for understanding people, should be a pivotal tool for solving these problems - yet most companies play it by ear, and billions of dollars are wasted on futile interventions to attract and retain the right people for key roles. Bridging the gap between the psychological science of talent and common real-world talent practices, The Talent Delusion aims to educate HR practitioners and leaders on how to measure, predict and manage talent. It will provide readers with data-driven solution to the common problems around employee selection, development and engagement; how to define and evaluate talent; how to detect and inhibit toxic employee behaviours; and how to identify and harness leadership potential.

But on a visit to Laramos city to sign a contract for her full spectrum colour system she narrowly escapes being murdered. Why does she want to own a Flitter? Why was the Mogul of House Funathim assassinated? What will she spend her rapidly growing quantity of credits on? How has Earth managed to build a fusion powered starship without Talent? Maisie thinks it’s a bad sign that Earth has named them the ‘Valkyrie Class’ and that Russia, China, Europe and USA have all switched their military budgets to co-operate and build Valkyries, all managed by the Solar Alliance. The Wildgrave Plonnis seeks to understand by questioning Maisie while helping her to spend her new found wealth. She’s still the only Tellurian to ever leave the Solar System, till the first Valkyrie ‘jumps’ just beyond the Kuiper belt. The cover is a photo-montage by Michael Watterson. About 133,450 words

Talent Management Agenda in a Post Covid 19 World Book Excerpt:

Is everyone in the organisation a talent? I addressed this question deeply in the book and the thinking behind the difference, relative to the organisation. In the talent management context, we consider "talent"” from the viewpoint of what the core essence of the organisation is in relation to specific mission critical individuals whose value-add directly help the organisation to achieve its core essence. What could be more important than focussing on the attraction, selection, proper segmentation, development and retention of the top talent? Invariably, a "talent"” is that individual whose contributions directly help to achieve the core objective of the organisation or business either now or in the future (or both). Consequently, every proactive activity which is required or channelled towards improving the contributions or managing the risks relating to key organisational roles and individuals regarded as “talent” could be termed talent management. In simple term, “talent management” is a proactive risk mitigation process that is particularly related to the human capital and geared towards ensuring continuous sustainability of the business. Accordingly, the content of this book – “Talent Management Agenda in A Post COVID-19 World” - focuses on talent and succession management concepts and approaches to guide every professional, business leader and executive on how to deliver real business value by focusing on the talent. The guidelines and principles contained in the book cut across various businesses and sectors; large, small, private, public, family-owned, academia and non-governmental. The insights shared with practical case studies will help to broaden the understanding of everyone so as to be able to design and proffer the right solutions that fit for purpose regardless of the organisation that is involved.

To teach learners these organic conditions which indicate character, is the first object of this manual. And to render it accessible to all, it condenses facts and conditions, rather than elaborates arguments, - because to expound Phrenology is its highest proof, - states laws and results, and leaves them upon their naked merits; embodies recent discoveries, and crowds into the fewest words and pages just what learners most need to know, and hence requires to be studied rather than merely read. To record character is its second object.
