A "good" programmer can outproduce five, ten, and sometimes more run-of-the-mill programmers. The secret to success for any software company then is to hire the good programmers. But how to do that? In Joel on Hiring, Joel Spolsky draws from his experience both at Microsoft and running his own successful software company based in New York City. He writes humorously, but seriously about his methods for sorting resumes, for finding great candidates, and for interviewing, in person and by phone. Joel’s methods are not complex, but they do get to the heart of the matter: how to recognize a great developer when you see one.

For too long our lives have been dominated by the ‘under one roof’ Industrial Revolution model of work. That era is now over. There is no longer a reason for the daily roll call, of the need to be seen with your butt on your seat in the office. The technology to work remotely and to avoid the daily grind of commuting and meetings has finally come of age, and bestselling authors Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson are the masters of making it work at tech company 37signals. Remote working is the future – and it is rushing towards us. Remote: Office Not Required combines eye-opening ideas with entertaining narrative. It will convince you that working remotely increases productivity and innovation, and it will also teach you how to get it right – whether you are a manager, working solo or one of a team. Chapters include: ‘Talent isn’t bound by the hubs’, ‘It’s the technology, stupid’, ‘When to type, when to talk’, ‘Stop managing the chairs’ and ‘The virtual water cooler’. Brilliantly simple and refreshingly illuminating this is a call to action to end the tyranny of being shackled to the office.

Building wealth is about managing our careers and the money we make. It all starts with the understanding that we build wealth primarily for two reasons: 1) to build prosperity and 2) to afford a comfortable retirement. Saving and investing to build prosperity is what we do to improve the quality and independence in our lives. Each of us measures quality and independence in our own terms-to some it means being able to afford big-ticket expenses, such as a dream home or supporting a favorite charity. To others it might mean making money work for us so that we don't have to work for it. We save and invest for retirement because, at some point in the future, we will choose to stop working and will need to replace the salary we currently earn. Saving and investing to afford a comfortable retirement is an obligation we have to ourselves. It is important to realize that we have no choice but to get on track saving and investing for retirement. We will be depending on it for survival in the later years of our life-considering how much longer people live with every passing decade, saving and investing is becoming increasingly more important.

To the generation that lived through it, World War II will always be the "Big One." Archie Bunker would proudly proclaim in the 1970s sit-com All in the Family, "I was in the Big One, Double-ya, Double-ya Two." In doing so, he intoned the creed of his generation. In the generations that have followed, there has been renewed interest in this period, evidenced by the popularity of movies like Saving Private Ryan and the television series Band of Brothers. World War II was truly the largest and greatest conflict in U.S. history. Americans spent more tax dollars, joined the armed forces in greater number, fought in more places, and waged war as part of a grander alliance than in any other war in the country's past. We Were in the Big One: Experiences of the World War II Generation is a collection of diary entries, letters, photographs, and other documents from the World War II era. Carefully selected by Mark P. Parillo from the Eisenhower Library's World War II Participants Collection and other archives, these documents show how the war affected Americans across gender lines, across social and political spectrums, on the home front, and on the battlefield. This compelling book demonstrates how the war truly influenced an entire generation of Americans. We Were in the Big One will inform and entertain all those interested in World War II and American history.

The 2006 federal budget was the first for a new Conservative minority government led by a prime minister from the west. As a platform for implementing distinctive election promises, the 2006 budget offered ample opportunity for rethinking fiscal priorities in Canada, such as cutting the GST, addressing fiscal imbalance with the provinces, and finding a different approach to childcare and child benefits. The papers in this volume examine the political and economic context informing the 2006 budget as well as lessons from recent U.S. tax policy debates and a quantitative evaluation of the impact of the overall budget package on the Canadian economy. Special attention is devoted to alternative federal tax structures, fiscal imbalance, and the recent federal Blue Ribbon report. Contributors also look at the new federal policy on childcare and child benefits, how the budget relates to productivity and competitiveness, and general sustainability of the new fiscal plan.
