People say that buying a table tennis table for staff will make them happier, having a regular work schedule will result in the most productivity, and higher salaries will mean a higher motivation. But is this true? With the numerous myths surrounding the workplace, it is difficult to know how to move forward with your team, career, and organisation. In Myths of Work, Ian MacRae and Adrian Furnham looks at the most common myths about work, and gives the reader insight to navigate this modern workplace. The authors do this by exploring real life case studies, and explain how to overcome the myths that these studies exemplify. Myths of Work is up-do-date, combines business and psychology with practical insights, and is therefore a comprehensive guide to dealing with these myths.

We see powerful images of fire fighters rescuing people from burning buildings, and of paramedics treating bomb victims. But how do these individuals made those split second decisions that save lives? In Sources of Power, author Gary Klein argues that there is a natural approach to decision making, which views people as gaining experience that enables them to use a combination of intuition and analysis to make decisions. To back this argument up, Klein gives the readers real life examples of people from various professions that act under certain constraints such as high stakes, and how they used their experience and intuition to make decisions. Sources of Power is insightful, well thought out, and is essential for anyone who wants to use a ground-breaking and innovative approach to decision making.
