The Unspoken Rules by Book Resume:

A Wall Street Journal Bestseller "...this guide provides readers with much more than just early careers advice; it can help everyone from interns to CEOs." — a Financial Times top title You've landed a job. Now what? No one tells you how to navigate your first day in a new role. No one tells you how to take ownership, manage expectations, or handle workplace politics. No one tells you how to get promoted. The answers to these professional unknowns lie in the unspoken rules—the certain ways of doing things that managers expect but don't explain and that top performers do but don't realize. The problem is, these rules aren't taught in school. Instead, they get passed down over dinner or from mentor to mentee, making for an unlevel playing field, with the insiders getting ahead and the outsiders stumbling along through trial and error. Until now. In this practical guide, Gorick Ng, a first-generation college student and Harvard career adviser, demystifies the unspoken rules of work. Ng distills the wisdom he has gathered from over five hundred interviews with professionals across industries and job types about the biggest mistakes people make at work. Loaded with frameworks, checklists, and talking points, the book provides concrete strategies you can apply immediately to your own situation and will help you navigate inevitable questions, such as: How do I manage my time in the face of conflicting priorities? How do I build relationships when I’m working remotely? How do I ask for help without looking incompetent or lazy? The Unspoken Rules is the only book you need to perform your best, stand out from your peers, and set yourself up for a fulfilling career.

The Unwritten Rules by John Beeson Book Resume:

Maximize your chances to get promoted to the executive level As predictable career paths have become extinct in most organizations, managers aspiring to the C-level job are left to their own devices to determine how to advance their careers. Even in companies committed to talent development, guidance to aspiring executives is often vague and contradictory. This happens, executive coach John Beeson argues, because executive promotions are made based on the decision makers' intuitive sense of whether or not a manager can succeed at higher levels within the organization. Beeson decodes these leadership criteria--the unwritten rules--that companies use to make decisions about who gets promoted and who doesn't, and identifies the six core "selection factors" that are imperative for success at the executive level Demonstrating strategic skills Building a strong management team Managing implementation Exhibiting the capacity for innovation and change Working across organizational boundaries Projecting executive presence Filled with stories of managers who successfully climbed up the executive ladder-and some who struggled-The Unwritten Rules is an invaluable resource for aspiring executives.

The Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott Book Resume:

Sarah and Brianna have always been friends, and it's always gone like this: guys talk to Sarah in order to get closer to Brianna. So even though Sarah met Ryan first, she's not surprised that he ends up with Brianna (even though Sarah has a massive crush on him). The three of them hang out, and Sarah and Ryan's friendship grows until one night an innocent exchange between them leads to a moment that makes Sarah realize that Ryan might be interested in her after all. But if there's one unwritten rule, it's this: you don't mess around with a friend's boyfriend. So Sarah tries to resist temptation. But with the three of them thrown together more and more, tension builds between Sarah and Ryan, and when they find themselves alone together at one point, they realize they just can't fight how they feel anymore....

Ranking by Péter Érdi Book Resume:

Human beings are competitive. We want to know who is the strongest, who is the richest, and who is the cleverest of all. Some situations, like ranking people based on height, can be ranked in objective ways. However, many "Top Ten" lists are based on subjective categorization and give only the illusion of objectivity. In fact, we don't always want to be seen objectively since we don't mind having a better image or rank than deserved. Ranking: The Unwritten Rules of the Social Game We All Play applies scientific theories to everyday experience by raising and answering questions like: Are college ranking lists objective? How do we rank and rate countries based on their fragility, level of corruption, or even happiness? How do we find the most relevant web pages? How are employees ranked? This book is for people who have a neighbor with a fancier car; employees, who are being ranked by their supervisors; managers, who are involved in ranking but may have qualms about the process; businesspeople interested in creating better visibility for their companies; scientists, writers, artists, and other competitors who would like to see themselves at the top of a success list; or college students who are just preparing to enter a new phase of social competition. Readers will engage in an intellectual adventure to better understand the difficulties of navigating between objectivity and subjectivity and to better identify and modify their place in real and virtual communities by combining human and computational intelligence.

GuyRules by Garland H. Green,W.P. Myers,Dan W. Hartshorn Book Resume:

Remember The Rules? Well, these ain't them. These are GuyRules, The Unspoken-and Until Now Unrecorded-Rules That Govern Men's Lives. For generations, men have jealously guarded these secrets, leaving women struggling to figure out what the heck was going on. Now the secret is out. GuyRules is based on a wildly popular Web site started by the authors, who contributed the first 110 rules. They then encouraged other guys to submit their own rules (provided they could pass a "Guy Test," included in the book), and things took off. The book is divided into chapters covering: * Buddies: "A Guy must compete for the biggest scar and most painful story. The Guy with the ugliest scar and the most grotesque story will win the Scar-Off Olympics." * Ego: "Guys are never lost and they never need a map. They've just chosen to take an alternate route at this particular juncture." * Hygiene: "One true measure of Guydom is how well a Guy can burp. Amongst Guys the belch is a true work of art. While GuyRules is funny, it is also true. For the first time in history, guys from around the world explain in their own words why they do the things they do. Every true Guy who reads GuyRules will recognize himself immediately, and women will instantly recognize the Guys they love-and love to hate.

In fact, according to the Outdoor Industry association, in the United States more than 3.6 million people participated in climbing in 2011. Many of these new climbers are entering outdoor climbing solely through rock gyms, without having the opportunity to apprentice with an experienced friend or mentor— resulting in climbing accidents and conflicts. How do you become a responsible crag citizen? Crag Survival Handbook: The Unspoken Rules of Climbing is longtime climber Matt Samet’s personal handbook to becoming a member of the climbing community. While Samet discusses key skills like movement, dealing with fear, gear management, and how to fall, he also delves into crag culture: ethics, access, dealing with conflict, dogs and kids at the crags, and Leave No trace practices. Samet lays out the unspoken rules you need to know. Chapters include: * Heads up! Safety, Hazards, and Basic Crag Awareness * Etiquette, Access, and Impact: You’re Not the Only Fish in the Aquarium * Movement PhD: Crouch Like a Tiger, Hide Like a Dragon * Become a Rock Ninja: Tricks of the Cragger’s Trade Crag Survival Handbook guides you through the essential questions, even the questions you didn’t know you had, just like a personal climbing mentor would — minute by minute, hour by hour, skill by skill.

The Unspoken Code by Marja L. Norris Book Resume:

Achieving success as a professional woman doesn’t have to be hard! With over 30 years of experience rising through the ranks of the male-dominated world of finance, author Marja Norris knows all too well the challenges females continue to encounter in today's business culture. Over the decades, she’s learned how to expertly navigate the rules and expectations of the workplace, many of which remain unclear, unspoken, or unstated to females trying to make their mark. In The Unspoken Code, Norris equips young professional women with the tools they need to succeed by shining a spotlight on the subtle, sometimes controversial, norms they face as soon as they set foot in an office. The Unspoken Code contains no-nonsense advice to help women climb the corporate ladder with confidence, as well as valuable insights from successful businesswomen reflecting on their own journeys to the top. The book's three sections guide readers towards their professional goals by awakening their own power within, perfecting both verbal and nonverbal communication skills in aggressive business environments, and showing the significance of how their dress impacts future career opportunities. Today’s business culture is shifting towards equality, but it’s not shifting fast enough. The Unspoken Code empowers women to push through barriers with moxie and gives them confidence to achieve their professional dreams.

The Unwritten Rules of Managing Up by Dana Brownlee Book Resume:

What do you do when the biggest threat to your project is your boss? It's not that your boss is out to get you. In fact, bosses generally mean well. But clueless leadership from a well-intentioned boss can sometimes cause more damage than a criminal mastermind tying your project to the railroad tracks. The Unwritten Rules of Managing Up provides refreshingly practical and candid insight into the best practices and techniques that project managers have successfully used for decades to manage a wide variety of senior-level stakeholders—ranging from perfectly competent and pleasant to downright dysfunctional and inept. While managing up is an incredibly valuable skill for virtually any type of boss (not just the difficult ones), the book includes recommendations for managing six particularly challenging—and common—types of senior leaders. They are the bombastic Tornado, who takes over meetings without realizing it; the Wishful Thinker, who regularly asks the impossible; the Clueless Chameleon, who can't quite decide what he or she really wants (but still holds you responsible for delivering it); the MIA Boss, who is just not around enough; the Meddlesome Micromanager, who hovers and insists you complete a task his or her way; and the Naked Emperor, who falls in love with his or her own crazy ideas. Brownlee also offers basic techniques to use with any boss, even a great one. This book is not just for professionals seeking to enhance their workplace effectiveness but also for senior leaders interested in addressing their blind spots and coaching others toward a more collaborative, results-focused leadership approach.

Analyzing the workings of boundary maintenance in the areas of anthropology, energy, gender, and law, Nader contrasts dominant trends in academia with work that pushes the boundaries of acceptable methods and theories. Although the selections illustrate the history of one anthropologist’s work over half a century, the wider intent is to label a field as contrarian to reveal unwritten rules that sometimes hinder transformative thinking and to stimulate boundary crossing in others.

What Women Don't Know (and Men Don't Tell You) by Michelle McKinney Hammond,Joel Brooks Book Resume:

What You Don't Know about Yourself Will Hinder You. What You Don't Know about Men Will Hurt You. What You Don't Know about Relationships Will Cost You. Why does the modern-day search for romance so often end in disappointment, especially for women? Is it something we do? Something we don't do? Are we missing important information about the opposite sex—or about ourselves? Is there something wrong with us that we long so desperately for "til death do us part"? Sadly, many women today see their ongoing singleness as a weakness or lack of worth. In truth, our dreams go unfulfilled not because we do not deserve for them to come true, but often because of wrong assumptions—assumptions that can easily be corrected. Drawing on both male and female perspectives, this book deals with the hard issues and questions you and other women ponder as you consider how to obtain lasting love. What Women Don't Know (and Men Don't Tell You) will help you adjust your desires, redefine what you are attracted to, set your values in order, and determine your goals—freeing you at last to pursue the loving relationship you desire.

5 Keys to Understanding China by Ryu Jaeyun Book Resume:

A former Samsung negotiator with twenty years of experience in China shares his insights on Chinese culture as well as practical tips for doing business with the Chinese. Drawing on firsthand knowledge of the Chinese market, the author guides readers through the ins and outs of localization and negotiation. In China, he argues, a society deeply informed by a Sinocentric worldview, Western-defined global standards won’t get you very far; to succeed in doing business there, a correct understanding of Chinese national pride, among other things, is essential. The author is recognized as a China expert by the Chinese themselves, having even being invited to lecture at the Central Party School, where elite members of China’s Communist Party are trained. His vivid accounts of his own business dealings in China are interspersed with incisive commentary on the definitive elements of Chinese culture for a fascinating read.
