Color Blind
In this powerful follow-up to Between Barack and a Hard Place, world-renowned writer, speaker and educator, Tim Wise, argues against “colorblindness” and for a deeper color-consciousness in both public and private practice. We can only begin to move toward authentic social and economic equity through what Wise calls "illuminated individualism"—acknowledging the diverse identities that have shaped our perceptions, and the role that race continues to play in the maintenance of disparities between whites and people of color in the United States today. This is the first book to discuss the pitfalls of “colorblindness” in the Obama era.

Creating Dominance
Dominance is an integral aspect of strategy. Strategy, whether in war, sports or business, is about how one can place themselves in a competitive position that gives them an advantage over competitors. If that position can be made so overwhelming by one competitor that others are effectively taken out of effective competition, that competitor is dominant. Dominance wins. The game is over. Everyone else is playing for second place or lower. Creating Dominance describes how successful law firms have gone about dominating their marketplaces - be they a practice area, a city or an industry. The book begins by describing the characteristics that identify a dominant firm and the precise strategies law firms can use to put themselves in a position of dominance.

Good Strategy Bad Strategy
Good Strategy/Bad Strategy uses fascinating examples from business, nonprofit, and military affairs to bring its original and pragmatic ideas to life. Reflecting an astonishing grasp and integration of economics, finance, technology, history, and the brilliance and foibles of the human character, Good Strategy/Bad Strategy stems from Richard Rumelt's decades of digging beyond the superficial to address hard questions with honesty and integrity.

Rumelt argues that the heart of a good strategy is insight-into the true nature of the situation, into the hidden power in a situation, and into an appropriate response. He shows you how insight can be cultivated with a wide variety of tools for guiding your own thinking.

Good Strategy/Bad Strategy will show you:
  • How to clear out the mumbo jumbo and muddled thinking underlying too many strategies
  • A clear way to create and implement a powerful action-oriented strategy for the real world
  • Rumelt's nine sources of power-ranging from using leverage to effectively focusing on growth-are eye-opening yet pragmatic tools that can be put to work on Monday morning
