Instantly distinguish between a schuss and a snowplough, a stem turn and a slalom, a sidecut and a side-slip with Bluffer's Guide to Skiing. Bask in the admiration of your fellow skiers as you pronounce confidently on what to do and where to do it. Never claim that your skis have ‘blunt edges’ or that you just can’t get enough ‘flex’ in your ski boots (these are valid excuses for most forms of skiing ineptitude.) And never boast that you haven’t had a lesson in your life. This is ill-advised, not least because it invites the entirely legitimate retort: ‘Yes, it shows.’ Above all, effortlessly hold your own against those who have skiing in their DNA. Just don’t make the mistake of skiing with them.

Bridge is a card game for four players seated round a table, ideally green baize, essentially with no mirrors in anyone's sightline. At the highest level, players have prodigious memories and minds like steel traps. But there's much more to the game than that - as The Bluffer's Guide to Bridge will prove. Minty Clinch is a mistress of many trades, but claims to know more about Bridge than any of her other various callings - which include biographer, film critic, journalist, ski writer and occasional card sharp.

Good management The secret of good management is avoiding bad management. Similarly, the test of good managers is that they cannot be observed or remembered for the deviations and idiosyncrasies which make bad managers so memorable. Real management The acid test of the true manager under pressure is that he or she is the only one not immediately doing something. The real manager is thinking before acting. Even if it's only a bluff. Proper management If you devote even a fragment of the working day to some thought about managing properly you can rise above the norm. Right management Good management is not necessarily about flair or excellence. It may often be about getting things right more than 90 per cent of the time, by avoiding the crass errors of your contemporaries. Simple management Good managers have every right to insist that presentations of all kinds, within and without the organization, be presented in words of few syllables which a child of four could understand.

For every fan of K-Pop music, Korean Wave dramas and Kimchi—or anyone intrigued by Korea and Korean culture—A Geek in Korea is a hip, new guide to the land of the Samsung smartphone and Gangnam Style. Author Dan Tudor first arrived in Korea on the eve of the 2002 World Cup when South Korea played Italy in the finals. What he saw inspired him to return and work in Korea. He served as The Economist magazine's Korea correspondent for three years, and he writes regular columns for the national daily Joongang Ilbo newspaper. Along the way, he has developed a great love and admiration for Korean culture and the Korean people. A Geek in Korea reinvents the culture guide for the Internet age. Packed with articles and photographs, it covers all the touchstones of Korean culture—from Buddhism and Confucianism to chapters on the traditional arts and disciplines like Taekwondo. There are chapters on cultural code words and norms; personal relationships; business and technology; and symbols and practices that are peculiarly Korean. A number of chapters are devoted to Korean pop culture, with attention to the stars, idols, and urban subcultures associated with them. For visitors to Korea, the author includes a mini-guide to his favorite neighborhoods in Seoul and other places of outstanding interest. Spotlighting the originality and creativity of the Koreans, debunking myths about them, and answering nagging questions like why they're so obsessed with education and success—Tudor has created the perfect book for the growing ranks of Koreaphiles in this inspired, insightful, and highly informative guide.
