Get To Grips With Grown Up Topics Thought-provoking & business focused articles on management theory Audiobook

Get To Grips With Grown Up Topics Thought-provoking & business focused articles on management theory

Author: Chirag Patel Narrator: Chirag Patel Release Date: October 2019

Articles on boring-but-interesting topics, including: Management styles and theory Quality philosophies The structure of law Case studies in reducing crime and recidivism A reflective study on criminal justice A case study on Warner Brothers' political cartoons Articles on occupy, disintermediation, and ethical concerns A wide range of short questions and answers about life issues, philosophy, theology, and more One thing that no-one tells you about being a writer is just how much business stuff you have to learn. In retrospect, it makes sense. Modern corporations provide the equivalent of patronage, allowing artists of all stripes to practice their craft with stuff that's both limited and challenging. Inevitably, what people will pay for producing is stuff directly relevant to their interests, and so over the years I've produced a lot of documents over time about management, law and politics. Some were explanations and guides, some were for courses I took; all were at once fascinating and difficult to engage with properly. What follows sits broadly in three categories: -Simple guides on basic management and legal concepts -More abstract applications and problems in management theory -Some practical instances of politics in action, especially in cartoons The real issue is that people are conversational, not contractual. That creates a real problem in the study of management, which is why the law (which is entirely contractual) and politics (which is entirely conversational) are included together. I find it helps to understand that these things are part of a system that we're all part of, willing or not, conscious or not. Management theories and practice, criminal justice in origin and contemporary application, and all political acts, whether large (the Truth and Reconciliation Committee) small (propaganda in Warner Brothers cartoons) or confusing (Occupy) are part of a single overarching desire to find the levers that make groups of people work.

Author: Chirag Patel Narrator: Chirag Patel Release Date: October 2019

For a few years, I ran a student support service at a university. Over that time, I discovered that most students were tripping up for easily avoidable reasons, and came in with the same problems each time. Contained herein are solutions for the most common student difficulties, including: How should I prepare to write my essay? How much time should I leave? What am I being asked to do? Shouldn't I Just read everything I can and then start? What is the difference between a claim and an argument? What counts as evidence? What does the question mean? What does critically analyse mean? What's the difference between objective and subjective? Why does it matter? Why is it important to define my terms, and how should I do it? How do I structure my essay? How long should paragraphs be? What is a topic sentence? What makes a good introduction? How do I write my conclusion? What does a completed essay structure look like? How do I sound academic? Just using the words and phrases without understanding them is getting me in trouble... How do I avoid using or showing my opinion? What language can't I use? How do I make my writing formal and impersonal? How should I read? I don't understand what these people are saying... How and why should I take notes? Why do I keep losing marks for referencing? How should I prepare before the exam? How should I manage my time? Why do I lose marks on multiple choice questions? What to do if you have absolutely no idea what's going on.

The Art of Being Right (annotated): The perfect guide to spotting bullshit, avoiding cheap tricks an Audiobook

The Art of Being Right (annotated): The perfect guide to spotting bullshit, avoiding cheap tricks an

Author: Arthur Schopenhauer Narrator: Chirag Patel Release Date: February 2019

A classic guide to tricks and tactics for winning arguments, with commentary on the use of and defence against each tactic. The best summary of this book is 'being right doesn't mean you're gonna win, and this is why'. It's the ultimate guide to spotting the many different kinds of bullshit people pull in order to win over the crowd, rather than argue the point at hand. There's very few of them that don't immediately bring examples to mind, and having it laid out clearly like this is the perfect armour to stop people derailing you. In the real world, people don't win arguments based on what's correct. They win because they win over the crowd, or change the subject, or bully their rival, or 35 other causes. This guide will walk you through the various strategies that people use, with notes on usage and defence for each point. Arthur didn't intend this work as a guide for winning fights. Much like Machiavelli's The Prince, this is a satire - a guide on what to watch out for in others and yourself, not a toolkit. If you can't win your argument on fair grounds, you need to reconsider your position; but that doesn't mean you should let people steal the day by underhand means. This book will teach you how to spot and spike them before they get a head of steam.
