Each chapter includes simple and practical tips that can be applied immediately including up-to-date tips on managing upward, working in both virtual teams and cross-cultural teams. By consolidating these tools in one place, with real-life scenarios, and examples of 'how to say it’, the book is a valuable reference for knowledge workers, project managers and newer managers.
The Thin Book of Smart People Skills also would make a good introduction to a leadership workshop. Early readers felt it was a great resource for newer managers. Other readers thought it was a wonderful review for experienced leaders. As Katina puts it, "This book offers you succinct and useful tactics that will provide results toward your strategic goals. Applied consistently, these people skills will help you improve relationships and performance."
“Plays” contains excerpts from the books “Lettere dal mattatoio” (“Letters from the slaughterhouse”), “Cronache dal centro della notte” (“Chronicles from the centre of the night”) and “Tutti senza nome” (“All without a name”) which have been included in the author's performances for English-speaking audience throughout the country and Europe.
None of this would have been possible without the great and encouraging response by those who attended the performances, which revealed how the power of word is still alive and kicking in a world where everybody seems to think such power is being more and more eroded and underestimated. Long live the word.
Moreover, this concept gives space to the study of the role societal developments - such as technological, political, economical or educational ones - play in theatrical events.

Rocky Shores explores the species, communities and landscape of the narrow strip of land surrounding much of the British Isles. While it maybe limited in extent, this habitat is incredibly biodiverse, and this insightful book details the patterns of marine life that might be encountered on both sheltered and exposed shores, from the inhospitable splash zone to the repeatedly submerged lower shore, and everything in- between.
Comprehensive chapters accompanied by exceptional photographs cover various members of the rocky-shore community in turn: striking lichens that colourfully adorn the rocks; seaweeds that have sustained human settlements for millennia; mysterious and often spectacular worms and their relatives; molluscs with variously configured shells; spiny-skinned echinoderms that move using tube feet; arthropods that range from tiny marine insects to heavy-clawed crabs; and microscopic species that drift around at the mercy of the tides. Rock pools provide pockets of diversity dotted across the shore, while the strandline at the high-tide mark supports a unique assemblage of microbes and invertebrates that attracts a variety of birds and mammals.
For anyone with a love of the shore – from the occasional rockpooler to avid naturalists – this book is a must for your collection.
