Moses: His Life and its Lessons: Mark Guy Pearse
Silicon Valley icon and best-selling author Guy Kawasaki shares the unlikely stories of his life and the lessons we can draw from them.Guy Kawasaki has been a fixture in the tech world since he was part of Apple´s original Macintosh team in the 1980s. He´s widely respected as a source of wisdom about entrepreneurship, venture capital, marketing, and business evangelism, which he´s shared in best-selling books such as The Art of the Start and Enchantment. But before all that, he was just a middle-class kid in Hawaii, a grandson of Japanese immigrants, who loved football and got a C+ in 9th grade English. Wise Guy, his most personal book, is about his surprising journey. It´s not a traditional memoir but a series of vignettes. He toyed with calling it Miso Soup for the Soul, because these stories (like those in the Chicken Soup series) reflect a wide range of experiences that have enlightened and inspired him. For instance, you´ll follow Guy as he....Gets his first real job in the jewelry business - which turned out to be surprisingly useful training for the tech world. Disparages one of Apple´s potential partners in front of that company´s CEO, at the sneaky instigation of Steve Jobs.Blows up his Apple career with a single sentence, after Jobs withholds a pre-release copy of the Think Different ad campaign: ´´That´s okay, Steve, I don´t trust you either.´´Reevaluates his self-importance after being mistaken for Jackie Chan by four young women.Takes up surfing at age 62 - which teaches him that you can discover a new passion at any age, but younger is easier!Guy covers everything from moral values to business skills to parenting. As he writes, ´´I hope my stories help you live a more joyous, productive, and meaningful life. If Wise Guy succeeds at this, then that´s the best story of all.´´ 1. Language: English.

A Globe and Mail Best SellerAs a child, Murray Howe wanted to be like his father. He was an adult before he realized that didn´t necessarily mean playing hockey.Gordie Howe may have been the greatest player in the history of hockey, but greatness was never defined by goals or assists in the Howe household. Greatness meant being the best person you could be, not the best player on the ice.Unlike his two brothers, Murray Howe failed in his attempt to follow in his father´s footsteps to become a professional athlete. Yet his failure brought him to the realization that his dream wasn´t really to be a pro hockey player. His dream was to be his father. To be amazing at something, but humble and gracious. To be courageous and stand up for the little guy. To be a hero. You don´t need to be a hockey player to do that. What he learned was that it was a waste of time wishing you were like someone else.When Gordie Howe passed away in 2016, it was Murray who was asked to deliver the eulogy. Nine Lessons I Learned from My Father takes the listener through the hours Murray spent writing the words that would give shape to his father´s legacy - the hours immediately after his hero´s death, as he gathers his thoughts and memories, and makes sense of what his remarkable father meant to him. The result is nine pieces of wisdom, built out of hundreds of stories, that show us the man behind the legend and give us a glimpse of what we can learn from this incredible life. 1.
