La Duke's Third Book Takes On Business Beyond Safety

The author of the books I Know My Shoes Are Untied. Mind Your Own Business and Lone Gunman. Rewriting the Handbook On Workplace Violence Prevention follows up with a controversial new book.

ALLEN PARK, Mich. - Sept. 15, 2020 - PRLog -- Phil La Duke doesn't suffer fools gladly, in fact, he grabs them by the throat and forces them to look straight down the barrel of reality.  His latest work is no exception. In Blood In My Pockets Is Blood On Your Hands (Marriah Publishing, 2020) is a rapacious bite at the throat of modern business and management practices.

"Of course I have a certain style that my readers have come to expect and mostly enjoy, but I got a little tired of being the "barking rat" of worker safety," says La Duke.  "Anyone can point out the cracks in the system and I wanted to write a book that did more than pick knits. For every problem I point out, I tried—and I think succeeded— to offer practical no-nonsense solutions that didn't require the intervention of an expensive consultant," he explains.

The book tackles safety holistically, dealing with issues as diverse as leadership, process capability, accountability, competency, and employee engagement; all elements of a well-run, and thus safer company.

The book is surprisingly in-depth and draws on La Duke's extensive experience in leadership development and Organizational Development (OD) and while his depth of knowledge of the topics is clear, the book never strays into academic theory and instead stays firmly grounded in the reality of the work world.

The book can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and independent book stores.

"We even did a special edition for Barnes & Noble for this one and the hardcover is in full color so it truly is worth the extra money," according to La Duke.

Sep 18, 2020

NEW YORK — Cynthia Erivo and Greta Gerwig rocked sparkling chokers as the Golden Globes red carpet kicked off Sunday, with Erivo in a hand-beaded custom Thom Browne gown and Gerwig in black and cream. Both went off-shoulder for the big night in Beverly Hills, California. Erivo, the “Harriet” star and fashion standout, said her dress includes designs of her favorite flower, the peony, at the hem and in her lining. The short-sleeve gown, Erivo told E!, took 800 hours. A huge blue stone dropped from her short necklace. Shades of pink had an early trend moment on Kirsten Dunst...

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Sep 18, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Sep 18, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Sep 18, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

ABC says interview with Epstein accuser wasn't ready to air

Sep 18, 2020

NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser. The conservative web site Project Veritas released video of Robach venting that "every day I get more and more pissed" that her 2015 interview with Virginia Giuffre never made the air. Robach made her remarks late in August while sitting in a Times Square studio with a microphone but not on the air. ABC said Tuesday that the...
