Moonwatch Only: The Ultimate Omega Speedmaster Guide
by: Watchprint.com SARL
Product rating: 4.8 with 4 reviews
“It makes perfect sense to publish a book called Moonwatch Only. The OMEGA Speedmaster Professional – the Moonwatch – has done things that no other timepiece has done and it’s been worn in places where only a few human beings have been.” Captain Eugene Cernan, the last man on the Moon Initially designed for automobile racing teams and engineers, the Omega Speedmaster embarked on a very different trajectory when NASA chose it to accompany astronauts heading for the moon in 1965. Its involvement in the space adventure has propelled the Moonwatch to the top of the list of celebrated timepieces. After years of research and observation, the authors present a complete panorama of the Moonwatch in a systematic work that is both technical and attractive, making it the essential reference book for this legendary watch. “It is an indescribable reference work and a true must-have for every Speedmaster collector” Forbes“This book sets a new standard. Not only for books on the Omega Speedmaster, but for watch books in general. I’ve never seen anything like it, and believe me I could fill an impressive sized wall with books on watches. Authors of other books or publishers should take a look at Moonwatch Only as well to see how it should be done.” Fratello Watches

The breast cancer guide every woman needs for herself, her best friend, and her sister—a warm, practical, relatable handbook, that dispels the terror, taking you step-by-step through the process, from diagnosis to post-treatment.
When Andrea Hutton was diagnosed with breast cancer, she wanted to know everything. She voraciously read books, articles, and websites and talked to everyone she knew. But nothing prepared her for what the surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation would feel like. Were there tricks that could ease her pain and discomfort? What was “fatigue” and how would it affect her? At what exact moment would her hair fall out and how? Hutton wanted what she could not find: a clear how-to guide for the cancer girl she had become.
Bald Is Better with Earrings is Hutton’s answer for women diagnosed with breast cancer: a straightforward handbook, leavened with humor and inspiration, to shepherd them though the experience. Warm and down-to-earth, Hutton explains what to expect and walks you through this intense and emotional process: tests, surgery, chemo, losing your hair and shaving your head, being bald, radiation treatments.
Hutton offers a wealth of invaluable advice—from tricks for surviving chemo, to treating your skin during radiation, to keeping track of meds—and includes a practical list of tips for each stage of the process at the end of every chapter. Compassionate, friendly, and shaped by Hutton’s first-hand knowledge, Bald Is Better with Earrings is the comprehensive, essential companion for anyone dealing with breast cancer.

A Widow’s Business: A Practical Guide Through the First Year After the Death of a Spouse
by: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
Product rating: 5.0 with 3 reviews
A WIDOW’S BUSINESS brings order to the many things a new widow has to handle—from organizing tasks in their order of importance to gathering the information needed to dealing with finances. The book also contains a simple overview of taxes, probate, and legal documents. In addition, a handy section helps a new widow prepare instructions for her future executors, to make their tasks easier. After the death of her husband, Liz Swiertz Newman had been overwhelmed by the amount of business there was to tend to. She looked for a book to help her know what to do and when to do it. She began making to-do lists, and when she contemplated the 15 pages of lists, she realized that she had begun to write the book that she needed—that widows need. A WIDOW’S BUSINESS: A Practical Guide Through the First Year after the Death of a Spouse, resulted from the organization of her lists and the inclusion of the kind of information other widows might need. Items covered in the first chapter address what is required immediately upon the death of one’s spouse, including whom to notify. The second chapter begins with information needed and where to get help. Also discussed are composing an obituary notice and planning a memorial service. The third chapter helps a new widow get organized at home to cope with the incoming paperwork and other items. The fourth chapter addresses money—what to expect, where to apply for assistance, and how to set up accounts. The author explains that help is at hand through a widow’s team of human resources—her CPA, her trust attorney if she has one, her banker or Certified Financial Planner, and others. She gives an overview of taxes, trusts, wills, and probate. This chapter ends with a review of scams, the fraudulent schemes that attempt to cheat people out of their money. The fifth chapter outlines the rest of the tasks required of a widow, from the next most in importance to those that can wait a while. The sixth and final chapter makes recommendations as to what a widow can do to plan ahead, including a section on how to draw up instructions for a future executor and how to organize a list of bequests. The lists are connected with brief narratives about the author’s own experiences. Ideally, all couples should read A WIDOW’S BUSINESS before they ever have a need for it. Besides being indispensable to a new widow or widower, the information is good to know and good for sharing with others.

Lead Inside the Box: How Smart Leaders Guide Their Teams to Exceptional Results
by: Career Press
Product rating: 5.0 with 60 reviews
Every employee is different, but unfortunately many leaders use a one-size-fits-all approach to leading. In doing so, these otherwise well-intentioned leaders are working harder than they should while not getting all they could out of their teams.
Lead Inside the Box gives leaders a way to get the best out of their teams by focusing their energy where it will make the biggest difference. It teaches leaders how to:
Figure out where they are currently investing their time and energy across their teams
Identify the unique leadership needs of each team member
Make smarter decisions about how and where to invest their time and energy to get the best results out of everyone
Through simple frameworks brought to life with stories from the trenches, leaders will be able to see their own teams–and themselves–from a new perspective. Paradoxically these methods will enable leaders to improve their team’s performance exponentially while expending half the effort.
