THE ENTERPRISE-EARLY NOTICE: TIME TO ORDER Rocketships & Parachutes. IS AVAILABLE NOW!
Solve your Father’s Day gifting challenge: give a copy of Rocketships & Parachutes.
This is a book where you MUST buy multiple copies. Get 5, 10 or 20, and give them to everyone you care about. It is a gift that will just keep on giving!
(PLUS--If you buy a paperback, amazon’s "book match” lets you buy a Kindle for only $2.99 instead of $9.99)
IF YOU INTEND TO BUY MULTIPLE COPIES and especially if you know who you want to sent them to, PLEASE buy them one at a time!
A sale of 5 books at one time on amazon counts as one sale on its bestseller list totals (unless they have changed it)…
THUS, IF THE BOOK IS TO MOVE UP THE BESTSELLER LISTS (don’t all authors want that?), its better to place 5 individual orders instead of one order of 5 books.

HERE’S WHAT READERS SAID ABOUT Rocketships & Parachutes
"John Mariotti has lived as eventful a life in business as anyone, and it pays to heed the lessons of his years in business. You will be so much better off—more prepared, more valuable, more wise."-- B. Joseph Pine II, author of Mass Customization and The Experience Economy
"John has written an important book. If we would create our own list of Rocketships and Parachutes moments, we could avoid a lot of problems. For help starting your own list, I can think of no better launching pad than this book."—Rick Maurer, author, Beyond the Wall of Resistance
“Excellent lessons on management – in this case management of one’s career. Thought-provoking guidelines to launch and sustain your career.” —C. John Langley, Professor, Penn State University.
Here’s what the book is all about (back over copy):
Rocketships & Parachutes takes readers on a journey through a lifetime of lessons—365 of them—that can “launch” a career on an upward trajectory, and “land” it safely and successfully. If you have ever wondered, “Why didn't I learn my lesson from that?” here’s your chance to learn those lessons without risking your career doing it.
Rocketships & Parachutes follows the author’s career from youth to maturity; from early professional, through middle management, into top executive ranks, and beyond into boardrooms and a career in consulting. The author’s experience as a leader and a mentor comes through in the way he explains how lessons were learned, and how readers can use lessons to advance their careers.
This is a compilation of real-world leadership, life and business lessons, based on actual situations. On this journey, they cover theory and practice, strategy & execution, problem solving & even “managing the boss.” There is help for every career stage, in every business discipline. Most of all, this is a guide to success in work, leadership and life.
