The assassins' gate : America in Iraq / by Packer, George,1960-;
Includes bibliographical references and index.Prologue -- An unfinished war -- Fevered minds -- Exiles -- Special plans -- Psychological demolition -- The palace -- The captain -- Occupied Iraqis -- Insurgencies -- Civil war? -- Memorial day -- Simple citizens -- Epilogue.This book recounts how the United States set about changing the history of the Middle East and became ensnared in a guerrilla war in Iraq. It brings to life the people and ideas that created the Bush administration's war policy and led America to the Assassins' Gate--the main point of entry into the American zone in Baghdad. The consequences of that policy are shown in the author's reporting on the ground in Iraq for The New Yorker. We see up close the struggles of American soldiers and civilians and Iraqis from all backgrounds, thrown together by a war that followed none of the preconceived scripts. The book also describes the war in American life: the ideological battles in Washington, the ordeal of a fallen soldier's family, and the political culture of a country too polarized to realize such a vast and morally complex undertaking.--From publisher description.

The inefficiency assassin : time management tactics for working smarter, not longer / by Segura, Helene.1941-;
"Who doesn't complain about not having the time and energy they'd like for family, friends, and personal passions? Author Helene Segura coaches real people in the real world to shift past these issues. Her engaging program differs from others in the way it recognizes diverse learning styles - reflective learners, right-brained creative learners, and even "just give me a quick fix" types. Case studies allow readers to self-diagnose and zero in on the strategies most appropriate for them. These wonderfully do-able techniques - for creating clarity, digging out from a buried office, scheduling a variety of priorities, and even telephone and email control - apply to anyone wanting to streamline, downsize, and better manage their work and home lives. Segura's astute attention to personality allows The Inefficiency Assassin to meet readers where they are struggling and to detail quick and easy-to-implement strategies to, as Segura promises, "kick chaos to the curb."
