North Star's consultants have published numerous books on the future of business—everything from moral philosophy, to the effect of video games on management, to one of the scarcest resources available today—attention.

Good vs Good

According to a very kind review: "'Maslow's Hierarchy for the Social World' would be a more apt title for this book. Its a new and refreshing view that reflects classic tensions and conflicts of today's socially driven globally connected world... The book offers real hope for the future: by using the 8 Goods framework, we just might be able to transcend the polarizing boundary lines that prevent us from working together, understanding each other, and recognizing that we have more in common than we think. Big Idea!!"
