Super Memory, Super Student

Harry Lorayne is the world’s foremost memory-training specialist and the author of The Memory Book, a New York Times bestseller for 46 weeks. His other books include Super Memory, Super Student; Remembering People, Memory Makes Money, and Harry Lorayne’s Page-a-Minute Memory Book. He has appeared on national television many times, including 40 appearances on The Tonight Show, and has made hundreds of personal appearances, teaching seminars at major corporations, schools, and other organizations. Memory is the stepping-stone to thinking, because without remembering facts, you cannot think, conceptualize, reason, make decisions, create, or contribute. There is no learning without memory.

Your Life as Art

This book is about creating your life as the artist creates a painting, a composer writes a symphony, or the poet writes a poem. Robert Fritz further develops his special insights that he introduced in his best selling book The Path of Least Resistance. In Your Life as Art, Fritz shows the relationship among the mechanics, the orientation and the depth of the human spirit within the creative process, and how your life itself can be made like a work of art. Your Life as Art breaks new ground, shakes up the status quo, and, at once, is common sense and revolutionary insight that can change the way you understand the dynamics of your life-building process.

Corporate Tides

The bestselling author of The Path of Least Resistance shows business men and women how to recognize the roots of their organization’s failure, and build a healthy structure from the bottom up. Nationally acclaimed business consultant Robert Fritz outlines the basic laws of structure that determine a corporation’s ultimate success or failure.

The Managerial Moment of Truth

The Managerial Moment of Truth explains a powerful new concept that can dramatically improve performance and increase productivity, at no cost, in virtually any company or organization. Developed by organizational consultant and bestselling author Robert Fritz and proven in practice by coauthor Bruce Bodaken, the chairman, president, and CEO of Blue Shield of California, the book provides a dynamic technique to help people face up to reality and confront the truth in order to correct mistakes, learn from past performance, and adjust processes to build a more successful organization.

The Path of LEAST RESISTANCE for MANAGERS

Nationally acclaimed business consultant Robert Fritz outlines the basic laws of structure that determine a corporation’s ultimate success or failure.

The Deming Management Method

Whether you’re the owner of our own small business, a middle manager in a mid-sized company, or the CEO of a multinational, this book can show you how to improve your profits and productivity. How? By following the principles of The Deming Management Method. Middle- and top-echelon managers in particular will find Dr. Deming’s method provocative and controversial. He is for a total revamping of the way American managers manage. Some of his pet peeves are: managers who manage by slogans or by setting quotas, managers who don’t know what their jobs are and who can’t define the responsibilities of the workers under them, managers who tend to blame workers, not realizing that workers want to take pride in their work. Change, Dr. Deming believes, starts at the top with an informed, quality-conscious management. This book includes excellent advice on how to achieve that level of management expertise in the author’s analysis of Dr. Deming’s famous 14 Points for Managers and his Deadly diseases of management.
