An eye-opening, groundbreaking tour of the purpose of work in our lives, showing how work operates in our culture and how you can find your own path to happiness in the workplace. Why do we work? The question seems so simple. But Professor Barry Schwartz proves that the answer is surprising, complex, and urgent. We’ve long been taught that the reason we work is primarily for a paycheck. In fact, we’ve shaped much of the infrastructure of our society to accommodate this belief. Then why are so many people dissatisfied with their work, despite healthy compensation? And why do so many people find immense fulfillment and satisfaction through “menial” jobs? Schwartz explores why so many believe that the goal for working should be to earn money, how we arrived to believe that paying workers more leads to better work, and why this has made our society confused, unhappy, and has established a dangerously misguided system. Through fascinating studies and compelling anecdotes, this book dispels this myth. Schwartz takes us through hospitals and hair salons, auto plants and boardrooms, showing workers in all walks of life, showcasing the trends and patterns that lead to happiness in the workplace. Ultimately, Schwartz proves that the root of what drives us to do good work can rarely be incentivized, and that the cause of bad work is often an attempt to do just that. How did we get to this tangled place? How do we change the way we work? With great insight and wisdom, Schwartz shows us how to take our first steps toward understanding, and empowering us all to find great work.

**The Sunday Times Best Business Book of the Year 2020** 'A satisfying ticktock of the company's rapid rise and crash, culminating in its disastrous I.P.O. in 2019 and Neumann's ouster.' New York Times 'This absorbing book exposes the sheer madness of WeWork: not just its founder Adam Neumann's extreme hubris, but why so many wiser minds bought into the fairytale.' Sunday Times The inside story of the rise and fall of WeWork, showing how the excesses of its founder shaped a corporate culture unlike any other. __________ In its earliest days, WeWork promised the impossible: to make the workplace cool. Adam Neumann, an immigrant determined to make his fortune in the United States, landed on the idea of repurposing surplus New York office space for the burgeoning freelance class. Over the course of ten years, WeWork attracted billions of dollars from some of the most sought-after investors in the world, while spending it to build a global real estate empire. Based on more than two hundred interviews, Billion Dollar Loser chronicles the breakneck speed at which WeWork's CEO built and grew his company. Culminating in a day-by-day account of the five weeks leading up to WeWork's botched IPO and Neumann's dramatic ouster, Reeves Wiedeman exposes the story of the company's desperate attempt to secure the funding it needed in the final moments of a decade defined by excess. With incredible access and piercing insight into the company, Billion Dollar Loser tells the full, inside story of WeWork and its CEO Adam Neumann who together came to represent the most audacious, and improbable, rise and fall in business. __________ A Sunday Times Best Business Book of the Year Fortune Best Book of the Year New York Times' Books to Watch For in October WIRED Books to Read This Fall Bloomberg's Nonfiction Title to Know this Fall Newsweek's Must Read Fall Nonfiction Publishers Weekly Top Ten for Business & Economics InsideHook's Best Books for October Like John Carreyrou's Bad Blood and Mike Isaac's Super Pumped before it, Billion Dollar Loser traces the turmoil at a startup driven by a charismatic, arrogant founder.

This volume challenges the widely held assumption that the professional practice of student affairs administration transcends the influence of organizational culture. Based on data and commentaries from more than 1,100 practitioners, this book describes how the experience of student affairs administrators varies by institutional type. The findings paint a multifaceted and integrated portrait of the profession. For instance, the standard bearers at liberal art colleges share as much in common with the generalists at comprehensive institutions as they do with the interpreters at religiously affiliated campuses. The specialists at research universities are juxtaposed against the producers at community colleges, however they have closer ties to the change agents at Hispanic-serving institutions. The work of the guardians at historically Black colleges and universities is linked to practice at both liberal arts and community colleges. Where You Work Matters offers current and future administrators a greater appreciation for the vibrancy and complexity of the student affairs profession.

Is your child interested in sci-fi, robots, or video games? Is your kid fascinated by smart home assistants and the prospect of self-driving cars? Time to turn that enthusiasm into action and engage with the exciting world of artificial intelligence! AI+Me is a series designed to introduce the 5 Big Ideas of Artificial Intelligence to young learners. Students take a deep dive into the Five Big Ideas of AI (Perception, Representation and Reasoning, Learning, Natural Interaction, and Societal Impact). This is the fourth book in the AI+Me series focused on Human-AI Interaction. The series is recommended for K-2 students. “Five Big Ideas in AI” are K-12 AI guidelines designed by AI4K12.org, a joint initiative of AAAI (the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence) and CSTA (the Computer Science Teachers Association). AI4K12 has received NSF support. Why should children be educated about AI? Learning AI opens up a world of opportunities. As the fastest growing area of computer science, AI will become the most important change force when our children grow up so it is critical they learn about it early. AI is fun! The field of AI started with scientists making computers learn to play games. AI is an incredibly fun way to introduce kids to programming and pique their interest in advanced topics like deep learning. Lastly, a topic like AI naturally opens up discussions about our humanity. In our curriculum, we dig deep into questions like “does AI positively or negatively impact society?” In doing so we aim to develop critical thinking skills and encourage students to reflect deeply. Benefits of AI education - Gets children interested in #STEM education - Improves their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills - Builds their understanding of the tech tools that’ll shape their future - Starts important conversations about the future of humanity What are educators saying: “I really love these books. I think they are absolutely beautiful and very visually engaging ways for students to learn about artificial intelligence. I like how they progress through the topic and terms related to artificial intelligence and help students to attach meaning to what they are learning by the different examples and step-by-step ways that students build their understanding through the book.” - Rachelle Dene Poth, Author of In Other Words, Unconventional, The Future is Now, and Chart a New Course. What are parents saying: “My 1st grader loves this book. She already is really interested in computers, but this book got her thinking about how we actually tell emotions. She started using her camera on her computer to record different expressions.” “My son learned ReadyAI courses before. I let his friend read AI+Me big idea 1. Surprisingly, both of them finished reading the book, with a lot of interest! I Will recommend this book for elementary school students.” “I have been looking for fun ways to introduce AI to my kid, and this definitely nailed it.”
