If a young man will look around him a bit, he will find that the most successful men of the day are always the most quiet dressers. Their clothes are never conspicuous; they detract rather than attract attention. It is only the fop of shallow mind who invites attention by his dress. -from "In Matters of Dress" Edward Bok wielded enormous influence during his three-decade tenure as editor of the Ladies Home Journal, a pulpit from which he advocated numerous progressive causes, from women's suffrage and environmental preservation to public sex education and pacifism. Here, though, in this 1895 book, written just a few years after he took up the Journal's editorship, Bok spoke directly to young men about matters of gentlemanliness and good citizenship. Still a young man himself, and a highly successful one, Bok uses a sympathetic, comradely voice-never a stern or strict one-to convey useful advice on how a young man should comport himself in business, in romance, and in society at large. It's advice that is still relevant today. Also available from Cosimo Classics: Bok's Dollars Only and his autobiography, The Americanization of Edward Bok. American Pulitzer Prize-winning author EDWARD W. BOK (1863-1930) also wrote Two Persons: An Incident and an Epilogue and America Give Me a Chance, among other books.
Family firms play and are likely to continue to play a vital role in the global economy and many family owned firms are far from small. One of the events that can and does disrupt the smooth evolution of such businesses is generation transition and succession. In numerous high profile cases such as the Ford and DuPont families, succession problems have deeply and dramatically affected both the businesses and families involved. In this very focused research-based study the authors examine the increasing involvement of women in leadership roles in family firms and how daughters are now so often rising through the ranks to take over successful family businesses when their fathers are reaching the end of their careers as active entrepreneurs. With case studies from almost every continent, Father-Daughter Succession in Family Business looks at the cultural and other changes that have led to daughters gaining influence in more and more family businesses and the tensions this produces between old notions of how men and women should behave and the new style of leadership that often comes about when a woman takes the helm. The case studies included here comprise revealing narrative accounts from the daughters who succeeded their entrepreneur fathers in a wide variety of challenging situations, many of which involve cultural contexts beyond the North American and European ones in which research has already established that women can and do perform as well as or better than men in many leadership situations. Increasingly, entrepreneurs contemplating retirement look to consultants and others for help with managing succession. It is also increasingly recognized that in business education the socio-cultural aspects of entrepreneurialism have to be addressed. This book will help consultants, business educators, and researchers, as well as those who are themselves involved in significant family managed enterprises to better understand why it can no longer be assumed in any part of the World that the first born son will necessarily take over the reins of the family business.

If you were to ask a hundred people the best way to be happy, you'd probably get a hundred different answers. Here's why. Not only does each person have their own perception of happiness, they, also, have their own way of finding it. The bottom line is that true happiness comes from within-not from others-and taking the first step must, also, start from within. Ernest Holmes wrote The Science Of Mind in 1926 as a guide to happiness from within that has grown to become a spiritual philosophy embraced by people around the world, based on one's individual personal power to transform their life through the power of thought. THE SCIENCE OF MIND WAY by Joan McCall now provides a simple introduction to this philosophy that will first help you tap into the source of your true happiness, then jump-start your life to new heights regardless of current relationships, finances or career. Read this simple book and redirect your road to happiness ...the Science of Mind way.
