Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die

Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die Lowest new price: $12.96
Lowest used price: $2.99
List price: $29.95
Author: Chip Heath
Brand: Brand: Random House Audio

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The instant classic about why some ideas thrive, why others die, and how to improve your idea’s chances—essential reading in the “fake news” era.
 
Mark Twain once observed, “A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on.” His observation rings true: Urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus news stories circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas—entrepreneurs, teachers, politicians, and journalists—struggle to make them “stick.” 

In Made to Stick, Chip and Dan Heath reveal the anatomy of ideas that stick and explain ways to make ideas stickier, such as applying the human scale principle, using the Velcro Theory of Memory, and creating curiosity gaps. Along the way, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds—from the infamous “kidney theft ring” hoax to a coach’s lessons on sportsmanship to a vision for a new product at Sony—draw their power from the same six traits.

Made to Stick will transform the way you communicate. It’s a fast-paced tour of success stories (and failures): the Nobel Prize-winning scientist who drank a glass of bacteria to prove a point about stomach ulcers; the charities who make use of the Mother Teresa Effect; the elementary-school teacher whose simulation actually prevented racial prejudice.
 
Provocative, eye-opening, and often surprisingly funny, Made to Stick shows us the vital principles of winning ideas—and tells us how we can apply these rules to making our own messages stick.

Practical Human Factors for Pilots

Practical Human Factors for Pilots Lowest new price: $50.55
Lowest used price: $47.04
List price: $64.95
Author: Capt. David Moriarty
Brand: imusti

Practical Human Factors for Pilots bridges the divide between human factors research and one of the key industries that this research is meant to benefit―civil aviation. Human factors are now recognized as being at the core of aviation safety and the training syllabus that flight crew trainees have to follow reflects that. This book will help student pilots pass exams in human performance and limitations, successfully undergo multi-crew cooperation training and crew resource management (CRM) training, and prepare them for assessment in non-technical skills during operator and license proficiency checks in the simulator, and during line checks when operating flights.

Each chapter begins with an explanation of the relevant science behind that particular subject, along with mini-case studies that demonstrate its relevance to commercial flight operations. Of particular focus are practical tools and techniques that students can learn in order to improve their performance as well as "training tips" for the instructor.

  • Provides practical, evidence-based guidance on issues often at the root of aircraft accidents
  • Uses international regulatory material
  • Includes concepts and theories that have practical relevance to flight operations
  • Covers relevant topics in a step-by-step manner, describing how they apply to flight operations
  • Demonstrates how human decision-making has been implicated in air accidents and equips the reader with tools to mitigate these risks
  • Gives instructors a reliable knowledge base on which to design and deliver effective training
  • Summarizes the current state of human factors, training, and assessment
