“This is my story of growing up in and escaping a cult, only to find myself chasing adrenaline and drugs in hopes of finding a shred of self-worth before finally landing in a remote community where I lived in silence, quieted my demons, and found the courage to love myself.” Wholly Unraveled is activist Keele Burgin’s memoir on survival and self-discovery.
Keele is an entrepreneur, activist, mother of three, author, and filmmaker. She has served in leadership roles on the boards of multiple non-profit organizations that empower women.

“There are no bad dogs, just bad owners,” is probably a credo you have heard. Samuel Culbert, PhD., takes the same principle to the workplace in Good People, Bad Managers: How Work Culture Corrupts Good Intentions. Culbert contends the underlying cause of bad management behavior occurs as managers begin to move up the ladder, pursuing “success” skills rather than crucial management skills. He offers advice on how to effect change in the workplace to bridge the gap between management and employees who feel disrespected.
Samuel A. Culbert, PhD., is an award-winning author, researcher and professor at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management. He is the winner of a McKinsey Award for an article published in the Harvard Business Review, is a frequent contributor to management journals and has authored numerous chapters in leading management books.
