Topic: WACKY, WARPED, & WICKED
(Bruce Hadburg)

On Wednesday, August 6, author Bruce Hadburg will discuss the process of building a non-fiction book, including topic selection, organization, and using story (and humor!) to flesh out concepts. The organizational evaluation tools he found—which are far more visible and easier to understand than any spreadsheet, financial statement, or press release—prove you don’t need financial “smarts” or “inside information” to ferret out a company’s “secrets.” These tools will help you identify sick organizations before they crash—before they destroy your career, your investment, your life, making the book an invaluable resource.
