Use History Like a Tool: An Unconventional Guide To Reading the Past and Managing the Future is a different type of history book--one written to show students and adults alike the real value of history, and the lessons of history that can be applied to daily life. In particular, Use History Like a Tool shows how to tell the difference between positive, forward-thinking change and the endless, repetitive shuffle of stagnation, applying the lessons of history to accurately size up the condition of one's workplace (and possibly determine whether one has any chance of a good future staying in one's current workplace). "Using history as a guide, alas, there is no way to cut back on the weight attendance has in the workplace. Once deadwood is in place, it's hard to remove it. The key is to keep deadwood out of the system. This may mean refraining from hiring someone for a needed position. Think twice about whom you hire, even if it's for a janitorial position." Highly recommended.
