A Message from Jorge –
hi!

You may have noticed the huge banner above each comic. I apologies if it’s too big, but I’m very excited to announce that my new book is on sale. We Have No Idea is a fun and accessible book about the Universe and how little we know of it. It’s full of clear and fun explanations and cartoons. I spent a whole year working with physicist Daniel Whiteson to create the book, so it would be awesome if you took a moment to check it out and consider buying it!

When we wrote it, we were inspired to make a book that doesn’t just talk about what we know, but also what we don’t know about the Universe. How else will the next generation of scientists and explorers be inspired to go out there and expand our horizons?

So take a look, and consider buying it for yourself or gifting it to a friend or family member who is graduating! What better present than a book about everything we don’t know?

Thank you all for supporting all my crazy efforts (movies, videos, books) over the years! I hope you enjoy the book!

WE HAVE NO IDEA Release! – My new book is now on sale! Order it now.

Free excerpt from The PHD Movie 2. – Watch this free clip from the movie that Nature called “Astute, funny”!

Hank Dunn

Since 1983, Hank Dunn has been ministering to patients at the end of their lives and their families. He served as a nursing home chaplain at Fairfax Nursing Center and as a staff chaplain for the Hospice of Northern Virginia, now Capital Caring. Chaplain Dunn is a graduate of the University of Florida and received his Master of Divinity degree from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

After serving 5 years as a youth minister at a very traditional church in Macon, Georgia, he moved to the DC area to be a part of the very nontraditional Church of the Saviour. He worked a year as a carpenter and for 4 years directed an inner city ministry before moving into the chaplaincy in 1983. He is a past president of the Northern Virginia Chapter of the Alzheimer s Association. He has served on the Ethics Committee at the Reston Hospital Center and the Chaplaincy Advisory Board at the Loudoun Hospital Center. He continues to volunteer as a chaplain at the Loudoun Hospital and at the Loudoun Adult Medical Psychiatric Services. For several years, Chaplain Dunn volunteered at Joseph’s House, a home for formerly homeless men with AIDS. He is also a Volunteer Pastoral Associate at his faith community, Vienna Baptist Church, where he is especially involved in the retreat ministry at the Lost River Retreat Center in West Virginia.

To help him explain end-of-life decisions to patients and families, he wrote a booklet to hand to them so they could reflect on the issues discussed. As an afterthought, he sent the book out to other institutions to see if they would be interested in purchasing it for the people they serve. First published in 1990, Hard Choices for Loving People has sold over 3,000,000 copies, and is being used in more than 5,000 hospitals, nursing homes, faith communities, and hospice programs nationwide.

His second booklet, Light in the Shadows: Meditations While Living with a Life-Threatening Illness, Second Edition was released in 2005. This is a collection of reflections on the emotional and spiritual concerns at the end of life.

Hank Dunn is a frequent speaker on topics related to the end of life. He enjoys backpacking, kayaking, and hiking.

The 100 Best Business Books of All Time


Thousands of business books are published every year Here are the best of the best. Now updated, with more than ten new books reviewed.

The 100 Best Business Books of All Time was written by two former leaders of 800-CEO-READ, Jack Covert and Todd Sattersten, with its current leader, Sally Haldorson. Originally published in 2009, The 100 Best is a guide to essential business reading for leaders, managers, and employees alike. If you want to grow, innovate, sell, lead, discover, and strategize, the books in The 100 Best are the ones to help you achieve your goals.

ABOUT THE 100 BEST

After years of reading, evaluating, and selling business books, 800-CEO-READ is the most respected expert on the category. Now they have chosen the 100 best business titles of all time the ones that deliver the biggest payoff for today’s busy readers.

The 100 Best puts each book in context, so that readers can quickly find solutions to the problems they face, such as how best to spend The First 90 Days in a new job or how to take their company from Good to Great. Many of the choices are surprising you ll find reviews of Moneyball and Orbiting the Giant Hairball. but not Jack Welch s memoir.

At the end of each review, Jack and Todd direct readers to other books both inside and outside The 100 Best. And sprinkled throughout are sidebars taking the reader beyond business books, suggesting movies, novels, and even children’s books that offer equally relevant insights.

This book will appeal to anyone, from entry-level to CEO, who wants to cut through the clutter and discover the brilliant books that are truly worth their investment of time and money.

Get a feel for the book. Get a feel for the book. Start with the introduction (download the PDF ). Then check out a review from both of us: with a review from both Jack and Todd:

And to get a feel for the layout of the book, check out the book’s “lost” chapter, which contains a collection of Industry book reviews. (Download the PDF )

ABOUT THE AUTHORS

Now retired, Jack Covert is the founder of and former president of 800-CEO-READ. now an independent company, but longtime partner of the Harry W. Schwartz Bookshops. Hired twenty-five years ago by the late David Schwartz to promote business and computer books to the Milwaukee business community, Jack used his considerable sales skills and innate business acumen to grow that 3-shelf business section into a 7 million dollar specialty business book retailer.

Todd Sattersten currently runs BizBookLab. a company that identifies, develops, and launches business books around the world from Portland, Oregon. Previously, he was president of 800-CEO-READ, spent six years at GE, and three years working with his father in the family sheet metal fabrication business. Todd received his BS in mechanical engineering from Michigan Technological University and his MBA from Marquette University.

Sally Haldorson is the General Manager of 800-CEO-READ and has worked for the company in many different roles for twenty years. She has an M.A. in English and Creative Writing, and lives in Milwaukee, WI with her husband and son.

10 Influential Business Books You Need To Read To Be Successful

10 Influential Business Books You Need To Read To Be Successful

Take a minute and think about some of the most successful people you know.

I d bet they re great with people, are super-productive, and think differently than most. After all, that s how they got to be where they are today.

Jealous of them? You don t have to be. You can learn these same skills by studying some of the best business books that can help you take your game to the next level. Here s 10 of my favorites.

1. How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

Dale Carnegie s best-selling book that helped to launch a personal growth empire should be required reading for everyone who wants to learn how to build and nurture relationships for a lifetime. Read this book and you ll learn some simple advice than can help you build popularity points within your current network and just as important, expand it to others.

2. Focal Point by Brian Tracy

Got a lot on your to-do list? Of course you do. But what separates productive people from others is their ability to focus on a singular task at a time, and getting it done before moving on to the next one.

Sounds simple in theory, but this can be extremely difficult in practice. In Focal Point Brian Tracy offers tips to help build discipline and organization into your day so you can get more stuff done.

3. Purple Cow by Seth Godin

Creating a me-too product can be easy at the start but can doom you to business failure. That s why marketing maverick Seth Godin recommends creating a product that is truly different from anything already available in the marketplace.

In essence by making the product different you ll be building the marketing into the actual product development which just makes your actual marketing a helluva lot easier.

4. Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz

If you ve struggled with procrastination or small thinking, this is the book for you. In it Schwartz offers practical advice that can help you get inspired and motivated to create a bigger life for yourself. And with it can be a more lucrative and rewarding career.

5. Man s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankel

It can be difficult for lots of people to keep things in perspective, especially when working on high priority and urgent projects at work. Man s Search for Meaning can be a life-changing book in the sense that it can open your eyes to a first-hand experience of one of the greatest atrocities in the history of mankind, while also teaching a valuable lesson about having purpose.

6. 4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss

Solo-entrepreneurs can learn a ton from the guy who made lifestyle design popular. But guess what? The 4HWW isn t just for guys and girls who want to start a small online business.

Smart moves like outsourcing, following the 80/20 rule, and automating processes should be made by entry-level workers and established executives alike.

7. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

I remember sitting on a couch and opening this book on a Saturday morning, thinking I d get through a chapter and then get on with my day. Instead, about 12 hours later, I was finished with the book. The concepts in it were mind-blowing to me.

To think that thoughts can create your reality sounded a little far-fetched at first. But after going through the book and understanding that your thoughts create your beliefs, which lead to actions, which then lead to habits .well you can get where I m going with this.

If you focus your thoughts on success, achieving it will be much more likely than thinking about obstacles, failures and everything else that can get in your way.

8. One Minute Manager by Kenneth Blanchard

If you re going to read one management book in your life, this should be it. It s simple. You can read it in an afternoon. And the advice works.

9. Lean Start-Up by Eric Ries

Before you create any sort of business you ll want to give Lean Start-Up a read through. Doing so can save you money, time and other resources you could have potentially wasted otherwise.

10. The Monk and the Riddle by Randy Komisar

The story Randy Komisar shares in the Monk and the Riddle offers advice about not just about how you need to think when starting a new business, but also about how to build a life you re passionate about.

Understanding the technical aspects of launching a start-up is great, but if you don t have the staying power to stick with it when the going gets tough then it s not likely to work. This book can help you understand this lesson before you spend blood, sweat and tears on a project that you re heart isn t into.
