What Went Wrong Book Excerpt:

What Went Wrong: Twenty Years of Airline Accidents (1996 to 2015), examines the defining accidents of the period. From the human, procedural and mechanical failures which caused them, as well as some where the final conclusion remains undefined or disputed. To the positive changes they inspired on all those involved and the industry at large, which ultimately helped to make airline transport safer for the world’s travelling public. What Went Wrong’s greater depth and enhanced insight of the involved issues and investigative process better illustrates—than other publications, documentaries or media coverage—each unfortunate event for the aviation aficionado, enthusiast and the everyday reader alike.

What Went Wrong Book Excerpt:

Something has gone seriously wrong with the American economy. The American economy has experienced considerable growth in the last 30 years. But virtually none of this growth has trickled down to the average American. Incomes have been flat since 1985. Inequality has grown, and social mobility has dropped dramatically. Equally troubling, these policies have been devastating to both American productivity and our long-term competitiveness. Many reasons for these failures have been proposed. Globalization. Union greed. Outsourcing. But none of these explanations can address the harsh truth that many countries around the world are dramatically outperforming the U.S. in delivering broad middle-class prosperity. And this is despite the fact that these countries are more exposed than America to outsourcing and globalization and have much higher levels of union membership. In What Went Wrong, George R. Tyler, a veteran of the World Bank and the Treasury Department, takes the reader through an objective and data-rich examination of the American experience over the last 30 years. He provides a fascinating comparison between the America and the experience of the “family capitalism" countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Sweden. Over the last 30 years, they have outperformed the U.S. economy by the only metric that really matters—delivering better lives for their citizens. The policies adopted by the family capitalist countries aren't socialist or foreign. They are the same policies that made the U.S. economy of the 1950s and 1960s the strongest in the world. What Went Wrong describes exactly what went wrong with the American economy, how countries around the world have avoided these problems, and what we need to do to get back on the right track.

What Went Wrong Book Excerpt:

To a certain extent, the story of Robby's life and death is a mystery. No therapist was able to offer a definitive diagnosis. Robby's personality, so charismatic one moment, so irrational the next, defied categorizing. His downward spiral was inexorable and inexplicable. When he finally lost his battle with mental illness, it was as if a grey shroud had been pulled over my family's world. This tragedy was incomprehensible to me and made me look deep inside my soul to try to find some answers. Art provides perspective and insight. It helps people work out their feelings creatively. I did not realize it at the time, but the paintings I did during this period were duplicating his journey from the real world into one of confusion and madness. When I found Robby's journals it was evident that he was able to recognize what was happening to him. I spent weeks reading and rereading Robby's writings and comparing them with my artwork. There was an almost ethereal connection. It was then that I made the commitment to write this book and try to explain the deep relationship between a mother and her son by telling his story through the twin lenses of my painting and his writing. This book probes deeper into the events of Robby's life and death. I want to explore questions such as: How can a happy, normal boy become such a tortured soul? Why did he become obsessed with Orthodox Judaism and what prevented the psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers from helping him? Why wasn't the love of his parents, siblings, other family members and friends, enough to save him?

Sociological Theory What went Wrong Book Excerpt:

Social theory is open to many passing currents. Claims to originality tend to thrive and past achievements are often ignored. In Sociologiocal Theory: What Went Wrong? Mouzelis claims that "problems" currently being isolated are not really problems, and that "achievements" claimed are little more than pretensions. He argues that we have been premature to dismiss thinkers from the late 1950s and early 1960s and that we can build on their ideas to produce a more effective, more relevant social theory. Written with precision and with clarity, Sociological Theory: What Went Wrong? is a compelling analysis of the central problems of sociological theory today and of the means to resolve them.

What Went Wrong or Was It Right Book Excerpt:

In 2095, while Pops and his college-aged great-grandson are cleaning the attic of a family farm, they find a variety of magazines and papers stowed away near 2018 by Pops’s father. Based on their few hours of examination, they disagree on whether the apparent changes suggested in the papers they observed were all good. Pops agrees to study and summarize what he learns from the documents about the era. Andrew is to return his frank comments. Pops then begins a systematic study to compare this past period against the current existing conditions. A series of letters to Andrew (chapters in this book) follow, summarizing US conditions in earlier periods, noting the dramatic changes since then in technology, culture, and economics. Pops is surprised to find just how bad the US situation was during his own childhood. In the investigating process, Pops also finds that his father had served on a lead section of a national-level committee whose job it was to suggest remedies for a then-sadly ailing US government and economy. Pops’s study reveals that the startling economic changes from the mid-2010s were not entirely driven by the rapidly advancing technology. The shift back to US prosperity and world economic leadership was accomplished by major changes in the way the economy was structured and the way it ran. In a step requiring a national vote, the relationship between government and business was dramatically altered, and the US economy became extremely efficient. The government, after receiving approval in a national election, made major changes to the way the economy was structured. As a result, well-paying jobs became available for anyone wanting them or needing to work. Government handouts became limited only to the severely handicapped. Work hours were lessened, and individuals were able to easily find their way toward a personally suited ideal career. Recreation time and retirement were secure. Good universal health care became the standard, although it was needed substantially less as the nation’s health improved due to medical breakthroughs, healthier lifestyles, more tightly controlled foodstuff, and tailored standard medications. Personal safety ceased to be a significant concern. Although not advocating this volume’s predicted solution to America’s problems, in the author’s opinion, this approach may be the only one actually feasible.

Flow Manufacturing What Went Right What Went Wrong Book Excerpt:

This book tells 101 stories of company efforts to implement the many aspects of flow manufacturing -- including such topics as just-in-time production, total quality control, reorganization of factories into product-focused or customer-focused cells, plants-in-a-plant, material flows by the simplicity of visual kanban, supplier partnerships, quick setup of equipment, cross-training and job rotation of the work force, and many more. The 101 mini-case studies – dubbed "caselets" -- include 26 non-U.S. companies from 12 countries and cover a wide swath of industrial sectors, and include many well-known corporations such as Apple, Campbell Soup, Honeywell, and Boeing. From the 1980s to the present, the author has been taking the message of process improvement and customer-focused excellence far and wide. Most of these travels, usually in connection with delivering a seminar, include brief factory tours in which he compiled detailed notes and then organized them as brief reports — his unvarnished analysis or take on what they do well and what needs improvement. In the main the reports were then sent back to the hosts of the plant tour. These factory tours and these follow-up reports form the basis of the large majority of this book’s caselets. Many of the caselets bring to life process-improvement methodologies in detail. With lots of caselets to draw from, the readers will find vivid examples of similar companies and processes within their respective industries. For example, the caselets often include applications of advanced concepts in cost management, employee training, performance management, supply chains, and logistics as well as applications of plant layout, quick setup, material handling, quality assurance, scheduling, ergonomics, and flow analysis.

Where The UK Went Wrong Post WWII A Personal Journey 2nd Edition Revised Book Excerpt:

Born at the beginning of 1952, the Author missed World War II by less than seven years, yet the effects were still being felt all around him. Rationing and bomb sites were the norm as he grew up in a once great country still reeling from the effects of the most devastating war in world history. He considers himself lucky to have been born in the UK. He also considers himself lucky to have lived through the golden years, enjoying a level of prosperity his children and children's children will only be able to dream of. In both Where the UK Went Wrong [1945-2015] and Where the UK Went Wrong [Post WW11], second edition, the author compares the post-war commitment to social cohesion and universal prosperity with the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries' weak, divisive, and ineffective political leadership (of all political parties) and the Darwinian 'survival of the fittest' society they have sought to create.
