Skills and experience might land you a leadership position, but they don't make you a true leader. Leadership comes from inside--and the greatest leaders first question themselves before they tackle the world around them.
To aid in this critical interrogation, The Ten Golden Rules of Leadership explores ideas from Aristotle, Heraclitus, Sophocles, Hesiod, and other great thinkers, including: * Know thyself * Do not waste energy on things you cannot change * Nurture community * Always embrace the truth * Let competition reveal talent * Live life by a higher code * Understand that character is destiny Then it shows you how to take each idea--along with what you've learned about yourself--and apply it to the challenges of the modern workplace. As Aristotle tutored Alexander the Great, you too will learn what it takes to conquer all.
Bus Station: Unbound is a fable about about finding yourself in-between places and times, an interactive fiction where the narrative decisions lie in your own hands and a grown-up "Choose your own adventure" like none you've ever read before. If you like Tales of the Unexpected, Twin Peaks and Welcome to Night Vale, you'll love this. You're heading home for Christmas. There’s a snowstorm, the roads are gridlocked and you’re stranded in a bus station known as the North’s most monstrous building.
People here are behaving strangely.
A group of teenagers seem to have vanished into thin air. Your parents' marriage is on the rocks. The whole town is traumatised and grieving and snow falls and falls like it will never stop. Outside the church bells are ringing… Bus Station: Unbound is the first in a trilogy of fully interactive novels from Curious Tales, one which tracks your journey and presents different moods, characters, genres and styles depending on the choices you make.
Is this a satire about an iconic building under threat from a short-sighted council, a horror story about infernal retribution and the tyranny of choice or a tale of guilt, home, grief and forgetfulness? You decide. Read, remix and play again. CURIOUS TALES is an author-led publishing collective.

Few eras are so clearly associated with fashion as the Jazz Age. Clean, slim lines; elegance grounded in simplicity rather than ornament; and styles designed for the active lives of the men and women who wore them—nearly a century later, the styles of the era still thrill us. This book, accompanying an exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum, London, both celebrates Jazz Age fashion and helps us understand its context. While presenting beautiful images of classic works by such designers as Chanel, Patou, Lucile, Lanvin, Vionnet, Hartnell, and Molynuex, worn by stars and stunners like Clara Bow and Louise Brooks, it also shows us how the era’s fashion developed. Martin Pel traces the effects of the end of World War I, the rise of America, rapid changes in the lives and expectations of women, and technological breakthroughs like the introduction of Rayon and zippers. All played a part in the creation of an aesthetic that couldn’t have been farther from the buttoned-down, bustled-up clothing of the preceding generation. A testament to an era that marked the birth of the modern, and whose influence is still felt today, Jazz Age Fashion is an unforgettable document of an unforgettable age.
