Oil Rig Roughneck

The oil industry has been getting negative press for decades now, and indeed it’s true that the impact fossil fuel burning has on our world hasn’t been fully realized yet. However, all of us enjoy the benefits of oil usage, and this book would like everyone to acknowledge the efforts and dedication of so-called oil rig roughnecks, the courageous and often downright foolhardy people who live in the middle of stormy seas, working hard to keep global economies and technology charging ahead full steam.

There Was a Man Who Loved a Rat: And Other Vile Little Poems

Perhaps before we talk about success it’s important to teach the little ones about embracing the world. For without affection to those around us, what is the point of being successful at all? Philosophy aside, this neat book of poems and limericks by a mother and daughter team describes the relationships between people and various animals, largely in an offbeat way and frequently featuring animals most people don’t consider really likable – such as the all important rat!

Rat 

Just one look at the lovable cover image and you’ll want this book. It’s a real case of a picture saying it all, and the text inside, which comes in a compact and highly readable style, links with our business and success themes because it espouses understanding as pivotal in doing well in life. While many consider rats and mice a nuisance or even worse, the author seeks to explain them, their lives and motivations. This is the moral of our story: understanding leads the way to better, greater things.
