The myth that Alec Issigonis conceived the Mini is just one whisp of the smoke screen that obscures the untold story of post-War Britain’s greatest industrialist. This is more than a motoring story. You will find commentary on life in the first half of the 20th century as you explore the drama of one man’s determination to overcome adversity. Someone who ‘shot from the hip’ as no other tycoon. This is a tale of political and military intrigue. Of spectacular business acumen. Of bitter, violent, industrial conflict. An account of savage jealousies and sexual intrigue. To record the life of Leonard Lord the author has visited a vast number of sources. In recent times some have sought to implant the roots of the British motor industry’s ills and ultimate collapse in the policies of Leonard Lord. This is both disingenuous and unjust. This, for the first time, is his story.

LEGO is one of the world's best-loved and most familiar brands, adored by generations of children. What is less well known, though, is how close this iconic company came to total collapse in 2003. Brick by Brick is the compelling story of a Danish family-owned company that enjoyed decades of success before its inability to keep in step with a rapidly changing market brought it crashing to earth. It's also the story of an extraordinary recovery. As disaster stared them in the face, the management of LEGO embarked on an audacious and innovative plan to turn their fortunes around, and then painstakingly implemented it. Today, the company is riding high once again, and enjoying results that are the envy of their competitors. Granted unprecedented access to every part of the LEGO Group, David Robertson not only charts each twist in the company's story but explains precisely what went wrong and how it was fixed. His clear-sighted analysis will prove invaluable to all those who want to understand how companies can not only ride the storm of change, but benefit from it.

This book tackles issues most people within the Christian community don't like to talk about— the ungodly desires, habits, false security, or pleasures that have them in bondage. For the sake of “keeping it real” with the readers, I share my personal testimonies of past struggles … making it easier to face up to anything that has you in bondage and press forward toward Christ. I pray that as many people as possible can be exposed to the gospel and walk in the freedom, victory and authority Christ bought for us. I am a living witness that doing so will help you stop living below your potential and trust Christ in every aspect of your life. If you are a big fan of the truth, you will find hope and encouragement in the messages found between the pages of this book.

This clever and touching wordless board book shows that walls can become bridges when everyone works together. It's a hopeful message that all children should see now.

Do others look to you for leadership? Do you face a major task or shoulder heavy responsibilities? Do you want to take your leadership skills to a higher level? When Nehemiah confronted the task of rebuilding Jerusalem's wall, he was heartbroken by the damage he saw and nearly overwhelmed by the task that lay before him. Yet through the application of timeless leadership principles, Nehemiah completed this nearly impossible project, and laid a pattern for success which is just as valid for us today. Charles Swindoll brings his sensible and straightforward style to offer a deeply spiritual approach to the role of leader. Whatever the context, secular or ministerial, he demonstrates how to size up a task, organize and motivate a team, and respond to inevitable obstacles such as these: Unforeseen setbacks Unrelenting deadlines Criticism and outside resistance Personality conflicts Financial pressures and temptations The insights that Swindoll draws from Nehemiah's wise administration will change your approach to leadership forever.
