This riveting and uplifting memoir by Vanessa O’Brien, record-breaking American-British explorer, takes you on an unexpected journey to the top of the world’s highest mountains. Long before she became the first American woman to summit K2 and the first British woman to return from its summit alive, Vanessa O’Brien was a feisty suburban Detroit teenager forced to reinvent her world in the wake of a devastating loss that destroyed her family. Making her own way in the world, Vanessa strove to reach her lofty ambitions. Soon, armed with an MBA and a wry sense of humor, she climbed the corporate ladder to great success, but after the 2009 economic meltdown, her career went into a tailspin. She searched for a new purpose and settled on an unlikely goal: climbing Mount Everest. When her first attempt ended in disaster, she trudged home, humbled but wiser. Two years later, she made it to the top of the world. And then she kept going. Grounded by a cadre of wise-cracking friends and an inimitable British spouse, Vanessa held her own in the intensely competitive world of mountaineering, summiting the highest peak on every continent, and skiing the last degree to the North and South Poles. She set new speed records for the Seven Summits, receiving a Guinness World Record and the Explorers Grand Slam, and finally made peace with her traumatic past. During her attempt on K2, she very nearly gave up. But on the “savage mountain,” which kills one out of every four climbers who summit, Vanessa evolved from an adventurer out to challenge herself to an explorer with a high-altitude perspective on a changing world—and a new call to share her knowledge and passion across the globe. Told with heart and humor, Vanessa’s journey from suburban Detroit to Everest’s Death Zone to the summit of K2 and beyond, is a transformative story of resilience, higher purpose, and the courage to overcome any obstacle.

Social science research conducted since the late 1970s has contributed greatly to society's ability to mitigate and adapt to natural, technological, and willful disasters. However, as evidenced by Hurricane Katrina, the Indian Ocean tsunami, the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, and other recent events, hazards and disaster research and its application could be improved greatly. In particular, more studies should be pursued that compare how the characteristics of different types of events-including predictability, forewarning, magnitude, and duration of impact-affect societal vulnerability and response. This book includes more than thirty recommendations for the hazards and disaster community.

JOSEPH DORIEL, a leading management and strategy consultant, and former Director General of The Israel Institute of Productivity, developed a special theory and know-how for salvation of enterprises and organizations in danger of collapse due to running out-of-control. Based on personal experience in rescuing various organizations - Industrial, Governmental and Military - he published this book, describing 10 typical viruses of Leadership and Organizational diseases, the method of their early detection before damaging the organization and the ways to overcome the danger of self-destruction caused by an Organizational Virus. The phenomenon of self-destruction processes in organizational systems was first discovered by Albert Einstein, who called it - "PERFECTION OF MEANS BUT CONFUSION OF ENDS." Then Prof. Northcote Parkinson published his famous book, describing some historical failures which may be explained (and could be avoided) by the help of the new theory. In 1983 Prof. Barbara W. Tuchman published her book "THE MARCH OF FOLLY," again, describing devastating mistakes of policy-makers, but without trying to find the mental and organizational "viruses" which caused these catastrophes. And so, till the publication of Doriel's book no systematic approach was developed to handle this kind of phenomena. His applied theory was successfully adopted in a series of Management Seminars on this subject with high-ranking military commanders, as well as Industrial and Public Sector Managers. The contents of a typical course included: - 1)The Systems Approach to diagnose the real problems of an organization and the ways to handle them. 2)Definition of typical organizational viruses which may cause self-destruction of the organization. 3)The way to handle typical organizational diseases. 4)Analyses of real problems in existing organizations, including contemporary warfare strategies, and working out alternative solutions for them.
