Coke and Pepsi McDonald didn’t want to jump off a cliff. They didn´t want to get hit by poisoned darts from blowguns either.

But what are you supposed to do when you’re being chased across the country by your insane health teacher and two guys in bowler hats who are trying to kill you? One thing´s for sure, it´ll be a snap for Coke and Pep to write their essays on ´´How I Spent My Summer Vacation.´´ Want to join in the fun? Fire up the old Google Maps and follow the McDonald twins as they get chased from the Pez museum to the largest ball of twine in the world. And watch out for the Frisbee grenades! 1.

A FINANCIAL TIMES BUSINESS BOOK OF THE MONTH ´Urgently needed´ Charles Duhigg, bestselling author of THE POWER OF HABIT and SMARTER ´Attention, good guys: this book is for you´ Adam Grant, bestselling author of ORIGINALS and OPTION B with Sheryl Sandberg ´I know what you´re thinking: ´Not another career guide-cum-manifesto, telling us to ´´woman up´´ and demand more money.´ But that isn´t what Lipman says. Instead, she uses data, reams of it, to expose how the system is rigged against women. She then calls for men to join the fight to make the workplace more equal´ SUNDAY TIMES STYLE MAGAZINE Women spend their working lives adapting to an environment set up for men, by men: from altering the way they speak to changing the clothes they wear to power posing. But still the gender gap persists. And once you see it - women being overlooked, interrupted, their ideas credited to men - it´s impossible to ignore. But it needn´t be this way. Diving deep into the wide range of government initiatives, corporate experiments and social science research Joanne Lipman offers fascinating new revelations about the way men and women work culled from the Enron scandal, from brain research, from transgender scientists and from Iceland´s campaign to ´feminise´ an entire nation. Packed with fascinating and entertaining examples - from the woman behind the success of Tupperware to how Google reinvented its hiring process - That´s What She Said is a rallying cry to both men and women to finally take real steps towards closing the gender gap.
