Peter Block
The Answer to How is Yes, Berrett Koehler, 2002
- A provocative book aimed at executives suggests that we are often asking the wrong questions. "How" focuses too much on the practical way of getting something done. Instead, the author suggests that we focus on getting things done in a creative and stress-free manner.

MORE TITLES


Paul Orfalea and Ann Marsh
Copy This, Workman, 2005 (225 pages)
- The founder of one of the most successful businesses in the United States -- and subsequently the world -- tells all. This is an engaging story of a visionary entrepreneur. Autobiographical details are illuminating, but the quotes are outstanding. Among the truisms: Anyone else can do it better, Your eyes believe what they see. Your ears believe others, As a leader, all you do is manage trust.

Book

Mark Dowie
American Foundations MIT Press, 2001
- The author conducted more than 200 interviews with foundation officers, critics, and grant recipients in addition to extensive research in foundation archives to assess the status of foundations. His assessment that organized philanthropy has been "slow to see problems coming, slow to respond, and quick to justify every decision" is accompanied by a series of suggestions on how to make reforms.

Anneli S. Rufus
Party of One: The Loner Manifesto, Marlowe & Company, 2003

Book

Julia Wondolleck and Steven Yaffee
Making Collaboration Work, Island Press, 2001
- The authors review a number of efforts in the United States that showcase collaborative efforts to address environmental conflicts. The focus tends toward a top-down approach, implying that agencies lead the way -- which seems less like collaboration and more like institutional management. This is a recommended book, but it could go much further.


Thomas Greco, Jr.
Money: Understanding and Creating Alternatives to Legal Tender, Chelsea Green, 2001
- Tom Greco, director of the Community Information Resource Center, makes the case for alternative currencies and provides instructions that work for individuals and local economies.
