Skin Game by Stuart Woods,Parnell Hall Summary

Teddy Fay returns to his roots in espionage, in the latest thriller from #1 New York Times-bestselling author Stuart Woods. When Teddy Fay receives a freelance assignment from a gentleman he can't refuse, he jets off to Paris on the hunt for a treasonous criminal. But as Teddy unearths more information that just doesn't seem to connect, his straightforward mission becomes far bigger--and stranger--than he could imagine. The trail of bread crumbs leads to secrets hidden within secrets, evildoers trading in money and power, and a global threat on an unprecedented scale. Under the beautiful veneer of the City of Lights, true villainy lurks in the shadows...and Teddy Fay alone can prevent the impending disaster.

Skin in the Game by Nassim Nicholas Taleb Summary

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A bold work from the author of The Black Swan that challenges many of our long-held beliefs about risk and reward, politics and religion, finance and personal responsibility In his most provocative and practical book yet, one of the foremost thinkers of our time redefines what it means to understand the world, succeed in a profession, contribute to a fair and just society, detect nonsense, and influence others. Citing examples ranging from Hammurabi to Seneca, Antaeus the Giant to Donald Trump, Nassim Nicholas Taleb shows how the willingness to accept one’s own risks is an essential attribute of heroes, saints, and flourishing people in all walks of life. As always both accessible and iconoclastic, Taleb challenges long-held beliefs about the values of those who spearhead military interventions, make financial investments, and propagate religious faiths. Among his insights: • For social justice, focus on symmetry and risk sharing. You cannot make profits and transfer the risks to others, as bankers and large corporations do. You cannot get rich without owning your own risk and paying for your own losses. Forcing skin in the game corrects this asymmetry better than thousands of laws and regulations. • Ethical rules aren’t universal. You’re part of a group larger than you, but it’s still smaller than humanity in general. • Minorities, not majorities, run the world. The world is not run by consensus but by stubborn minorities imposing their tastes and ethics on others. • You can be an intellectual yet still be an idiot. “Educated philistines” have been wrong on everything from Stalinism to Iraq to low-carb diets. • Beware of complicated solutions (that someone was paid to find). A simple barbell can build muscle better than expensive new machines. • True religion is commitment, not just faith. How much you believe in something is manifested only by what you’re willing to risk for it. The phrase “skin in the game” is one we have often heard but rarely stopped to truly dissect. It is the backbone of risk management, but it’s also an astonishingly rich worldview that, as Taleb shows in this book, applies to all aspects of our lives. As Taleb says, “The symmetry of skin in the game is a simple rule that’s necessary for fairness and justice, and the ultimate BS-buster,” and “Never trust anyone who doesn’t have skin in the game. Without it, fools and crooks will benefit, and their mistakes will never come back to haunt them.”

The Skin Game by Michael Burnett Miller Summary

This book is about racism and colorism in the African American community. It will inform you on how colorism was founded by racism throughout the 17th century with Europeans. It also will show you how we as Black people hold on to traits that were given to us during slavery. This book will get into how so many things we perceive to be good, and even holy started from racism, things such as religion, and the hate and separation we have as descendants of enslaved Africans toward each other. This book is more than just food for thought, but it will dig deep into the very core of your heart and soul. In this book I will convince you that we as a people cannot do anything to help support, and promote ourselves unless we are looked at as nationalist, or a cult, but every other group of people who are white, Chinese, Hispanics, Arabs, or any other group of people can make it a necessity to help their own.

Skin in the Game by Rick Lawrence Summary

Christians are longing for more life in their lives, a sense that they’re more present to Jesus and to their own story in the everyday. They’re looking for the answer to the deepest question of human experience: “How do I find the freedom I crave, and become the person I long to be?” Too often, though, they’re scared to risk too much to find the answer—so they simply continue to lead lives of “quiet desperation.” Rick Lawrence says that’s exactly the problem. We’ve seen too much. We know too much. And so we manage our risk so well that we choke off the very fuel that our soul needs to stay alive. In fact, risk should be a primary aspect of our relationship with Jesus, not the thing we avoid. In this book, Lawrence argues that if we pay attention to the way Jesus related to people, we discover that he asked every person he ever met to put their “skin in the game”—invest part of themselves. Only then did they find the life they always longed for. Lawrence asks eight key questions, including: • Will you embrace your shame? • Will you receive grace? • Will you confront your fears? • Will you wait, even when all hope is lost? With a vigorous, fast-paced, and conversational style, he uses these questions plus stories straight from Scripture and pop-culture corollaries to explore the kinds of risks we find in our lives today and how to stop waiting and start going all in for Jesus.

Skin in the Game by Major General Ret. Dennis Laich Summary

“Major General Dennis Laich is a citizen, a soldier, and a patriot. In Skin in the Game, he invites Americans to reflect on this very hard truth: the all-volunteer force is a bad bargain. Basic US military policy needs changing. Here is an essential guide on where to begin.” —Andrew J. Bacevich, author of Breach of Trust: How Americans Failed Their Soldiers and Their Country Major General Dennis Laich makes a compelling case that the all-volunteer force no longer works in a world defined by terrorism, high debts, and widening class differences. He sets up his argument by posing three fundamental questions: Is the all-volunteer force working? Will it work in the future? What if we had a war and no one showed up on our side? The answers to these questions become all too clear once you learn that less than one percent of US citizens have served in the military over the last twelve years—even though we’ve been fighting wars the entire time. What’s more, most of that one percent comes from poor and middle-class families, which poses numerous questions about social justice. This one percent—the ones that survive—will bear the scars of their service for the rest of their lives, while the wealthy and well-connected sit at home. Fortunately, there are alternatives that could provide the manpower to support national security, close the civil-military gap, and save taxpayers billions of dollars per year. It’s possible to fight for what’s right while ensuring a bright future, Laich offers a wake-up call that a debt-burdened nation in a dangerous world cannot afford to ignore.

Match Play by Jerry Travis Summary

Have a quirky multi-millionaire build a quirky golf course in the hills of western Pennsylvania. Then mix in a variety of normal and not-so-normal folks to play golf on that course, and you have the setting for Match Play, a novel about bitter rivalries in golf and romance. Shallow Creek Country Club is a course with several deliberately odd designs by its owner and architect, a man who made enough money in ball-bearings during World War II to indulge his fantasies about a golf course that includes one large sand green in honor of his father’s memory, a pipe through a fairway hillside for those who want to play a little putt-putt golf, a green with a huge maple in the middle, and an underground cavern that was originally built as a bomb shelter but later turned into a cool stopping-off spot in the middle of a round. The cavern sits beneath one high hill overlooking most of the holes on the course and has a long tunnel leading back to the clubhouse. The story takes place in the late spring and summer of 1986 and is told from the point of view of a young English teacher and low-handicap golfer named Tom MacKenzie. He is romantically involved with his co-worker-counselor, Pat Thompson, as well as one of his graduating seniors, Amy Forrest, and he’s not sure how he should handle the situation. Both Pat and Amy are good golfers, Pat about a twelve handicap and Amy a single-digit and getting better all the while. To further complicate things, Pat Thompson is also involved with Roger Burdis, a newly wealthy Floridian who has inherited money from an aunt and returned to Porter, Pennsylvania, to live. Roger Burdis is a borderline psychotic with an almost instant hatred for Tom, or Mac as all his friends call him. They encounter each other in several matches on the golf course, in a poker game in the club house, and in a variety of social situations, all leading up to one final confrontation on the golf course, but not for a golf match—a middle-of-the-night match of wits with lives at stake. The plot includes several dashes of humor, a slice or two of sex, several layers of suspense, and enough golf to satisfy any club golfer in the country. And a conclusion as exciting as any Kentucky Derby photo finish.

Now grown up and coaching the high school team, she's shocked when that same sexy quarterback returns to Harper Falls, asks her back to his hotel room...and then tries to steal her job. Injured NFL quarterback Cade Reynolds is in Harper Falls to take over as interim head coach, and he never thought the tall, blond bombshell he propositioned would offer up any resistance. Not to a repeat of the amazingly wild night they shared and certainly not to his coaching position.

As the two engage in a battle of wits and wills, this is one game neither is prepared to lose.

Women and Leadership by Julia Gillard,Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala Summary

A powerful call to action for achieving equality in leadership. Women make up fewer than ten per cent of national leaders worldwide, and behind this eye-opening statistic lies a pattern of unequal access to power. Through conversations with some of the world's most powerful and interesting women--including Jacinda Ardern, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Christine Lagarde, Michelle Bachelet, and Theresa May--Women and Leadership explores gender bias and asks why there aren't more women in leadership roles.
