A group of enterprising penguins with a yen for juicy clams teams up with some walrus colleagues to harvest a seemingly endless supply for all. The good news attracts penguins and walruses from icebergs far and wide who join in the work and the delectation. But on the way to establishing a clam lovers' paradise; territorial skirmishes arise; clumsy walruses flatten penguins; and confusion reigns. Can the penguins discover the hidden connections that have turned spiraling success into frustration and social upheaval? Only when they learn to see what is invisible are they able to stop their paradise from unraveling and take steps to create sustainable prosperity. The Tip of the Iceberg vividly illustrates how organizations can be trapped by systems when they fail to understand them.

Winner of the Wellcome Prize A finalist for the Samuel Johnson Prize and the Costa Award “A memoir quite unlike any other. It has the strength of an arrow: taut, spiked, quavering, working to its fatal conclusion...an extraordinary story told in an extraordinary way.”—The Sunday Times “The most heartbreaking memoir of the year.”—Independent on Sunday Winner of the Wellcome Book Prize, and finalist for every major nonfiction award in the UK, including the Samuel Johnson Prize and the Costa Award, The Iceberg is artist and writer Marion Coutts’ astonishing memoir; an “adventure of being and dying “and a compelling, poetic meditation on family, love, and language. In 2008, Tom Lubbock, the chief art critic for The Independent was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The Iceberg is his wife, Marion Coutts’, fierce, exquisite account of the two years leading up to his death. In spare, breathtaking prose, Coutts conveys the intolerable and, alongside their two year old son Ev—whose language is developing as Tom’s is disappearing—Marion and Tom lovingly weather the storm together. In short bursts of exquisitely textured prose, The Iceberg becomes a singular work of art and an uplifting and universal story of endurance in the face of loss.

Beyond the Iceberg: A Case for Emotional Healing presents a step-by-step investigation into human nature, considering why so many people get angry, producing an intense response without any good reason. Through her experience and professional studies, author Dr. Christine Onu offers antidotes to those hidden reasons causing people appear to be sick when there is no actual sickness. There are many problems plaguing society today for which the root causes are not self-evident. We are naturally inclined to think and care for ourselves and our own safety more than we think or care for others. But nobody is an island; we need each other for life to be more meaningful. While there is absolute need for each of us to take proper care of ourselves, we should also be interested in the needs and progress of others. Beyond the Iceberg explores the value of psychology as a necessary tool to deal with and understand human behaviors and the problems that arise in interpersonal relationships, so that we are better able to resolve conflicts when they arise. Each of us creates our own life story and reality—who we are as human beings. Beyond the Iceberg considers the hidden emotions that create problems in our relationships, at work, and at home, while examining the causes for our psychological challenges and possible solutions.

In Our Iceberg is Melting a simple fable about penguins illustrates how to conquer change, with profound lessons for working and living in an ever-changing world. This charming story about a penguin colony in Antarctica illustrates key truths about how we deal with the issue of change: handle the challenge well and you can prosper greatly; handle it poorly and you put yourself at risk. The penguins are living happily on their iceberg as they have done for many years. Then one curious penguin discovers a potentially devastating problem threatening their home – and pretty much no one listens to him. The characters in this fable are like people we recognize, even ourselves. Their story is one of resistance to change and heroic action, confusion and insight, seemingly intractable obstacles and the most clever tactics for dealing with those obstacles. It is a story that is occuring in different forms around us today – but the penguins handle change a great deal better than most of us. Based on John Kotter's pioneering work on how to make smart change happen faster and better, the lessons you can learn from this short and easy-to-read book will serve you well in your job, in your family and in your community. And these lessons are becoming ever more important as the world around us changes faster and faster. This edition celebrates ten years since the publication of this classic business fable with new and improved illustrations and a foreword by Spencer Johnson, author of Who Moved My Cheese?
