Boldly Live As You've Never Lived Before: (Unauthorized and Unexpected) Life Lessons from Star Trek


Author(s): Richard Raben and Hiyaguha Cohen

Book Series: Self-Help Books
Book Number:

Copyright: ©1995
Condition: Very Good
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 0688143717

--Summary--
Welcome aboard a remarkable ship on a journey inside yourself.

Star Trek's greatest message has always been that we have the potential to conduct ourselves with courage and purpose, dignity and wisdom. And in a world too often devoid of heroes, it has given us a galaxy full of them to show us how.

Now Boldly Live As You've Never Lived Before enables you to recognize your own heroic qualities and unleash their tremendous power. First figure out which heroic character-type you are most like:

Leaders such as Kirk and Picard have clear vision, a deep sense of duty and justice, as well as an outstanding ability to take charge and implement a plan of action.

Warriors such as Worf and Kira tackle problems head-on, applying exceptional focus, self-discipline, and -- if necessary -- aggression to get results.

Analysts such as Spock and Tuvok have the clear-headed, unemotional objectivity needed to make effective choices based on facts and logic alone.

Relaters such as Troi and Kes express themselves freely, draw people to them, and have great compassion for others.

Then Boldly Live demonstrates how you can maximize your heroic strengths and overcome your weaknesses. Do you have trouble making big decisions or taking responsibility? Let your inner Leader guide you. Is your love life going nowhere? Listen to your inner Relater and act on its advice. Scared to ask for a raise? Have your inner Warrior stand by you. Overwhelmed by life's choices? Consult your inner Analyst. Whether you're at home, at work, with others or alone, these heroes are always with you -- because they are you.

With examples from the four Star Trek series, the seven movies, and the rich breadth of human history, Boldly Live will help you experience a deeper, broader, more fulfilling life -- in which you are your own greatest hero

Make It So: Leadership Lessons from Star Trek: The Next Generation


Author(s): Wess Roberts, Pd.D., and Bill Ross

Book Series: Self-Help Books
Book Number:

Copyright: ©1995
Condition: Mint
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 0671520970

--Summary--
The fast-changing business world of today is far different than it was just a few years ago. Success in today's marketplace requires new leadership techniques, new thinking, and an eye on the future....

In Make It So, Wess Roberts and coauthor Bill Ross take their inspiration from today's most striking and most popular vision of the future -- Star Trek -- an unprecedented television, feature film and publishing phenomenon. From the top-rated television series Star Trek: The Next Generation, Roberts finds a new symbol for successful leadership: Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

As entertaining as it is useful, Make It So captures the mythos of Star Trek: The Next Generation as it delivers dramatically rich lessons on leadership, including the importance of the ability to focus on a single "mission," effective communication, teamwork, honor... and many others. The examples are taken from the on-screen adventures of Captain Picard and the Starship Enterprise, but the lessons and benefits are real -- and can be applied to everyday situations where the goal is the kind of high-performance organization embodied by the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise 1701-D.

Sure to appeal to Star Trek enthusiasts and serious students of leadership alike, Make It So is the most exciting business book on the shelves -- the one book that shows the future of modern leadership while giving managers the tools they need for success today!

Notes: None.

All the Other Things I Really Needed to Know I Learned From Watching Star Trek: The Next Generation


Author(s): Dave Marinaccio

Book Series: Self-Help Books
Book Number:

Copyright: ©1998
Condition: Mint
Printing: 1st
ISBN: 067101000X

--Summary--
From the bestselling author of All I Really Need to Know I Learned From Watching Star Trek®…

Has anyone ever said you watch too much TV? That there is nothing of value to be learned from sitting in front of the television set all day long? Couch potatoes of the world, take heart. The book you now hold is your vindication.

In his previous bestseller, All I Really Need to Know I Learned From Watching Star Trek, armchair philosopher Dave Marinaccio took readers on a lighthearted and thought-provoking tour of the human condition, mapped across the adventures of Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, Dr. "Bones" McCoy and the rest of the crew of the original Starship Enterprise. Now, with All The Other Things I Really Need to Know I Learned From Watching Star Trek: The Next Generation, he offers new observations on life's everyday challenges, inspired by the Emmy Award winning science fiction series.

Through engaging anecdotes from his own life, and calling on his near encyclopedic memory of events in the lives of Captain Picard, Riker, Data, Worf and the rest of the crew of the Enterprise-D, Dave demonstrates how the universal appeal and commonsense wisdom of Star Trek: The Next Generation (as well as Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager) can help to shape a positive and humorous outlook on life. Often witty, sometimes irreverent, always entertaining, All The Other Things I Really Need to Know I Learned From Watching Star Trek: The Next Generation is one self-described couch-potato's insightful look at life through Trek-colored glasses.

Notes: None.
