Weather or Not?
Jim N. R. Dale
The impact of the weather is often taken for granted and sometimes completely ignored. Weather in all forms is a maker and breaker of both business and personal fortunes, especially when it reaches extremes. The weather we experience crucially dictates almost every aspect of our lives. It directs what we do and when we do it, from what we eat and drink, to the clothes we wear, and it even governs our health and behaviour.
In this entertaining and informative book, global expert meteorologist and weather authority, Jim N R Dale, shares his experiences and advises how you and your business could truly become weather savvy. Weather impact is an all-consuming phenomenon, and, with the rise of climate change, there is no better time to tune into one of the most important aspects of our lives. Certainly, a book for a rainy day!
The Power of Capitalism "This wide-ranging tome, which covers economic systems across China, Africa, Germany, the US and the UK exploring the power of capitalism, may not persuade staunch anti-capitalists of the author's alternative viewpoint. However, it certainly offers a robust challenge to anti-capitalist views and provides a series of well-defined and researched arguments in favour of a capitalist society." CITY A.M. The Wealth Elite "Rainer Zitelmann's study of the psychology of the super-rich is an ambitious project. Few could be better qualified for it than Dr Zitelmann - an historian, sociologist, journalist, businessman and investor. There has been no comparable study and it is a compelling read for all who need to understand the characteristics and motivations of rich entrepreneurs." Michael Maslinski, The Financial Times
