The Motley Fool's Rule Breakers, Rule Makers presents the sophisticated, yet easy-to-understand stock-picking methods that have kept the Motley Fool portfolio beating the Standard & Poor's averages by more than 30 percent.

The Gardner brothers explain * How to identify the best investments in today's public markets: the rule breakers and the rule makers * The definition of a "tweener" -- a maturing rule breaker -- and how to detect the Tweener Death Rattle * When to buy and when to sell, and how to manage your portfolio on a regular basis In their first two books, the Fools got you started in investing and freed you from the fees and worries that Wall Street's Wise Men have been imposing on investors for decades. Now, by sharing their methods for picking rule breakers and rule makers, they guide you through a stock market that has seen company valuations soar to unprecedented heights and that promises to continue providing roller-coaster thrills. The Motley Fools are the ultimate companions to bring along for a safe, fun, and profitable ride.

A celebrated social psychologist offers a radical new perspective on cultural differences that reveals why some countries, cultures, and individuals take rules more seriously and how following the rules influences the way we think and act. In Rule Makers, Rule Breakers, Michele Gelfand, “an engaging writer with intellectual range” (The New York Times Book Review), takes us on an epic journey through human cultures, offering a startling new view of the world and ourselves. With a mix of brilliantly conceived studies and surprising on-the-ground discoveries, she shows that much of the diversity in the way we think and act derives from a key difference—how tightly or loosely we adhere to social norms. Just as DNA affects everything from eye color to height, our tight-loose social coding influences much of what we do. Why are clocks in Germany so accurate while those in Brazil are frequently wrong? Why do New Zealand’s women have the highest number of sexual partners? Why are red and blue states really so divided? Why was the Daimler-Chrysler merger ill-fated from the start? Why is the driver of a Jaguar more likely to run a red light than the driver of a plumber’s van? Why does one spouse prize running a tight ship while the other refuses to sweat the small stuff? In search of a common answer, Gelfand spent two decades conducting research in more than fifty countries. Across all age groups, family variations, social classes, businesses, states, and nationalities, she has identified a primal pattern that can trigger cooperation or conflict. Her fascinating conclusion: behavior is highly influenced by the perception of threat. “A useful and engaging take on human behavior” (Kirkus Reviews) with an approach that is consistently riveting, Rule Makers, Ruler Breakers thrusts many of the puzzling attitudes and actions we observe into sudden and surprising clarity.

When the winners of today can be dethroned by a surprise new entrant tomorrow, how do you ensure you stay on top? The world has changed, and the leaders of the future are those who embrace disruption and make their own rules. Rule Breaker is a manifesto for a new wave of leadership.

Award-winning entrepreneur, Jackie Fast, details how we have got here and why a whole new generation of workers is moving away from traditional models of work. Rule Breaker shows you how businesses like Kylie Cosmetics, M.92 and Beats can tap into a purposeful and engaged community of talent, harnessing true diversity and collaboration. To remain a highly successful leader in a future of radical change, you need to do more than fly the flag at the top of the podium supported by those beneath you. You must join the frontline and pave the way. Throw away the rule book, encourage rebelliousness, ask questions and lead by example.

Ireland is a nation on a value system that equates ‘being good’ with ‘being there for each other’. As a society we favour ‘minding our own’ over ‘doing what we’re told’. So far, so Irish. It’s become a commonplace to refer to the excesses of the Celtic Tiger years as an aberration, the product of a short-lived and inexplicable mania for cheap credit and unregulated consumption. But what if the roots of Ireland’s economic crisis ran far deeper than the property boom or the hubris of the establishment elites who enabled it? In this, a ground-breaking survey of the Irish national character from its colonial history to its current day dramas, acclaimed sociologist Niamh Hourigan draws on a wealth of new and compelling research to reveal the fundamental conflict at the heart of the Irish society: that between our traditional faith in the politics of intimacy, all handshakes and favours, and the ruling systems in which we’ve invested power. The Ireland that emerges from her research is a country where outcomes are decided by who rather than what you know, and where – for good or for bad – rules are very much made to be broken. ‘Probing, perceptive and highly readable exploration of the Irish value system’ J. J. Lee, New York University ‘Compulsively readable’ Kathy Sheridan, The Irish Times ‘Lucid, engaging and persuasive … every politician should read this – and so should every voter’ Colin Murphy, The Guarantee

“Imagination may be thought of as a ‘work-around.’ It is a resourceful tactic to ‘undo’ a rule by creating a path around it without necessarily defying it. . . . Transgression, on the other hand, is rule breaking. There is no pretense of reinterpretation; it is defiance pure and simple. Whether imagination or disobedience is the source, constraints need not constrain, ties need not bind.” So writes Kenneth A. Shepsle in his introduction to Rule Breaking and Political Imagination. Institutions are thought to channel the choices of individual actors. But what about when they do not? Throughout history, leaders and politicians have used imagination and transgression to break with constraints upon their agency. Shepsle ranges from ancient Rome to the United States Senate, and from Lyndon B. Johnson to the British House of Commons. He also explores rule breaking in less formal contexts, such as vigilantism in the Old West and the CIA’s actions in the wake of 9/11. Entertaining and thought-provoking, Rule Breaking and Political Imagination will prompt a reassessment of the nature of institutions and remind us of the critical role of political mavericks.

Perfect for fans of Monica Murphy, Tracy Wolff, and Lauren Layne, these seductive novels from award-winning author Jennifer Chance introduce four irresistible alpha males who make their own rules: a smoldering rock star, a sexy biker, an unbreakable soldier, a wealthy playboy. Now the whole red-hot series—Rock It, Fake It, Want It, and Risk It—is available in one convenient eBook bundle. ROCK IT Lacey Dawes is a total pro at the talent agency where she works, but when Dante Falcone picks her to be his interim tour manager, Lacey can’t believe her luck. The rock god has starred in her fantasies since she was sixteen—and remains her secret crush to this day. Although Dante is grateful for his adoring fans, being surrounded by a cadre of corporate types backstage is wearing thin. Then sweet, sexy Lacey shows up. Yeah, she’s organized, smart, quick to get him what he wants before he knows he wants it—but Dante’s hungry for more. FAKE IT New grad Anna Richardson works hard—so hard that she’s given up having a romantic life. She’s even convinced her friends that she’s dating an amazing guy, but now Anna has a wedding to attend and needs to produce the hottie. Enter Jake Flynn, her infuriating, motorcycle-riding, jaw-droppingly gorgeous neighbor, who’s more than willing to fake it for a weekend. Soon, though, the thin line between fantasy and reality fades. Jake’s starting to feel the heat, and judging by Anna’s sweet blush, so is she. But if she takes a ride with him, their adventure never has to end. WANT IT For Erin Connelly, being a good girl isn’t such a bad thing. She’s working at a Boston art gallery and staying out of trouble—until her deadbeat mom winds up in the clutches of a Mexican drug lord. Now the only person who can save her is the one man Erin has no business asking for help: Zander James, the sexy-as-sin army ranger who just so happens to be her ex. However, with a treacherous enemy lying in wait, the electrifying tension between them may just be Zander’s undoing. Because while he may be able to keep Erin alive, he can’t promise to keep his hands off her. RISK IT As dominating in business as he is in bed, Rand Sterling Winston IV always gets what he wants. And he wants Dani Michaels—even after she scams him into paying triple for her friend’s painting. So when the part-time thief rebuffs his advances, he gives her a choice: a night in jail or an evening with him. Dani has never met someone like Rand, and she’s more than a little intrigued by his no-strings, no-holds-barred proposition. But as their encounters grow increasingly intimate, Dani uncovers a vulnerable side to Rand’s steely exterior and opens her heart to the ultimate risk. Praise for the novels of Jennifer Chance “Rock It is perfect for those of us who like our books the way we like our rockers: smart, sexy, sweet, and a damn good time!”—New York Times bestselling author Lexi Ryan “Fun, flirty, and fantastic! Fake It is one sweet and exciting ride.”—New York Times bestselling author Tracy Wolff “Sometimes outrageous, often funny, and always sexy . . . I love this author’s voice, I love these books . . . and I absolutely love her bad-boy heroes.”—Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

In The Rule Breaker's Book of Business, Roger Mavity provides clear advice and guidance for anybody ambitious about work, yet uncertain of their route to success. The book is devoted to the simple - yet vital - idea that success at work is much more likely to be achieved if we are happy and confident in what we do. But it also believes that fun, and success, at work don't come from slavishly following the rules. On the contrary, it's only by ignoring the conventional wisdom, by breaking a few rules, by daring to use different means, that we have a chance of achieving something remarkable. The short and refreshingly simple chapters are divided into three sections: dealing with money, dealing with the people around you and dealing with yourself. Each chapter identifies a common problem at work and resolves each problem in a clear and approachable way. Chapters include: - Cash is King (and Ace, Queen and Jack) - How to a write a business plan, and a strategy, and is there a difference? - Is there life beyond email? - The art of delegation To find out more, visit www.rogermavity.com.
