Books & Authors (III) Feature Package

1. The authors of Crucial Conversations release the second edition of their New York Times bestseller Crucial Accountability

PROVO, Utah, June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Studies show when people see accountability as "someone else's job" they waste time, resources and morale—specifically, research from VitalSmarts shows employees waste $1,500 and an eight-hour workday for every accountability discussion they avoid. These costs skyrocket when you consider that 95 percent of a company's workforce struggles to hold their colleagues accountable.

2. Poetry site offers inspiration and reflection through our history, art and mysticism to express how we live our lives today

PORTLAND, Ore., July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Poet Angela Mendola's new website, Angela Mendola Poetry: Eve of the New Renaissance is a poetry site that presents the reader to express what we often cannot. From a poem regarding the civil war to art at the Uffizi, or a young girl coming of age and dealing with a loss of a loved one, Mendola's poems offer insight and reflection.
