We live in a world of dramatic and unpredictable change that is wiping out time-honored businesses and long-standing institutions while ushering in unprecedented opportunities for creative individuals and entrepreneurial organizations.

If you're looking for practical advice on how to win at work without losing your self, if you want to change your life to meet the challenge of change, or if you want to learn from some of the world's most interesting and creative people, let Alan M. Webber take you on a remarkable journey toward greater personal understanding and, ultimately, greater personal success.
