How effective of a measure of national well-being is the Gross Domestic Product? Robert F. Kennedy on GDP...
This is an incredibly inspiring speech by Robert F. Kennedy on the use of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to measure economic well-being in the United States of America. Obviously, GDP isn't something we should abandon because it provides a very useful metric to see how we're doing relative to the past and to see how we're doing relative to other nations, but it doesn't come close to painting a complete picture for various reasons, one of them being described in a beautifully poetic way by Robert F. Kennedy in this video.
Title: The 48 Laws of Power
Author: Robert Greene
Publication Date: 1998
Genre: Historical Non-fiction - How-to Guide
In The 48 Laws of Power, Robert Greene takes the reader on a spectacular journey throughout history, stopping at a plethora of interesting destinations to demonstrate the use (or lack of use) of his 48 Laws.
The books roughly follow a basic pattern:
The book conjures up images of Sun Tzu's Art of War for those who are familiar with that ancient title. Of course, Greene's work is far more accessible to the modern reader and more entertaining also, due in part to the historical examples. Another interesting feature is that Greene's work can be read through from start to finish, but it also lends itself well to a more casual approach by a reader who likes to skip around and choose to read about whichever Law takes his or her fancy at that moment.
The book can be a how-to guide for those who seek to understand the secrets of power, but it can also be an incredibly entertaining read for those interested in history. I have not fact-checked the book so I am not sure if the historical examples are all accurate, but even if Greene took some liberties with them, I don't think they would greatly diminish this excellent work.
Here are the notes from a lecture during on presentation fundamentals. The lecture was given by a professor who has a PhD in English literature as well as an MBA and who is somewhat of an expert when it comes to technical and non-technical communication in various forms. The notes are not very formal, do not articulate all of the information given in the lecture, and are intended primarily to be a starting point for learning about how to craft high quality presentations.
