Reality Check by Guy Kawasaki Summary

'I wanted to provide hard-core information to hard-core people who want to kick ass, and I wanted it in something you can hold in your hands-a book. Why? Because a book boots up faster than a blog and is not dependent on Internet connectivity, battery life, or the ineptness of HTML printing.' For a quarter of a century, in his various guises as an entrepreneur, evangelist, venture capitalist, blogger and bestselling author, Guy Kawasaki has cast a sharp eye on the dubious trends, sketchy theories, and crackpot jargon that so often passes for business today. Reality Check is his all-in-one guide to starting and operating great organizations-ones that stand the test of time and ignore passing fads. This indispensable volume collects, updates, and expands the best entries from his popular blog and features his inimitable take on everything from effective e-mailing to preventing 'bozo explosions' to the top ten lies of venture capitalists. 'An irreverent Silicon Valley Emily Post; his highly readable book is an encyclopaedia of proper behavior for entrepreneurs.' - Time 'If you're an entrepreneur, don't even think about trying to launch a start-up without reading Guy Kawasaki Reality Check . . . There's plenty of plain-spoken, tough-love, hard-to-hear advice bundled into these short chapters.' - BizEd Magazine 'Buy two copies of this book. One to rip pages out of, mark up, copy, and track on the wall. And one to give away to your clueless colleague. Oh, better make that three copies. Four?' - Seth Godin, bestselling author of Linchpin and The Dip

Reality Check by Richard D. Professor Morgenstern,William A. Pizer Summary

Since the early 1990s, voluntary programs have played an increasingly prominent role in environmental management in the U.S. and other industrialized countries. Programs have attempted to address problems ranging from climate change and energy efficiency, to more localized air and water pollution problems. But do they work? Despite a growing theoretical literature, there is limited empirical evidence on their success or the situations most conducive to the approaches. Even less is known about their cost-effectiveness. Getting credible answers is important. Research to date has been largely limited to individual programs. This innovative book seeks to clarify what is known by looking at a range of program types, including different approaches adopted in different nations. The focus is on assessing actual performance via seven case studies, including the U.S. Climate Wise program, the U.S. EPA's 33/50 program on toxic chemicals, the U.K. Climate Change Agreements, and the Keidanren Voluntary Action Plan in Japan. The central goals of Reality Check are understanding outcomes and, more specifically, the relationship between outcomes and design. By including in-depth analyses by experts from the U.S., Europe, and Japan, the book advances scholarship and provides practical information for the future design of voluntary programs to stakeholders and policymakers on all sides of the Atlantic and Pacific.

Reality Check by Donald R. Prothero Summary

A thought-provoking look at science denialism “for popular science readers who want better to be able to explain and defend science and scientific methods to others” (Library Journal). The battles over evolution, climate change, childhood vaccinations, and the causes of AIDS, alternative medicine, oil shortages, population growth, and the place of science in our country—all are reaching a fevered pitch. Many people and institutions have exerted enormous efforts to misrepresent or flatly deny demonstrable scientific reality to protect their nonscientific ideology, their power, or their bottom line. To shed light on this darkness, Donald R. Prothero explains the scientific process and why society has come to rely on science not only to provide a better life but also to reach verifiable truths no other method can obtain. He describes how major scientific ideas that are accepted by the entire scientific community (evolution, anthropogenic global warming, vaccination, the HIV cause of AIDS, and others) have been attacked with totally unscientific arguments and methods. Prothero argues that science deniers pose a serious threat to society, as their attempts to subvert the truth have resulted in widespread scientific ignorance, increased risk of global catastrophes, and deaths due to the spread of diseases that could have been prevented. “Prothero’s treatise will give the science-minded something to cheer about, a brief summary of the real data that supports so many critical aspects of modern life.” —Publishers Weekly
