Item Description: Simon & Schuster, 1979. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: VG. Dust jacket condition: VG. First edition. Harold Robbins, the world's most popular and captivating storyteller, has created what may well be the most significant book ever written about the rise of the labor unions. The 1979 novel, freshly re-released, is the saga of Daniel Boone "Big Dan" Huggins, who rises from poverty and the mines of West Virginia to become the most respected and feared labor organizer in the nation. Daniel's life and death are tied to the challenges and fortunes of American labor. Once he is gone, his youngest son Jonathan must take up the reins of his father's cause, returning to Daniel's roots to better understand the path that led him to his destiny. Robbins has a gift for combining popular fiction with the most pertinent subjects of the twentieth century, to create a snapshot of the time. Relevant, respectful, and very readable, Memories of Another Day proves once again why Harold Robbins' books have sold more copies than any other American writer in history. 491 pages.

Item Description: Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 205 x 136 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. When Bob Lutz retired from General Motors in 2010, after an unparalleled forty-seven-year career in the auto industry, he was one of the most respected leaders in American business. He had survived all kinds of managers over those decades: tough and timid, analytical and irrational, charismatic and antisocial, and some who seemed to shift frequently among all those traits. His experiences made him an expert on leadership, every bit as much as he was an expert on cars and trucks. Now Lutz is revealing the leaders--good, bad, and ugly--who made the strongest impression on him throughout his career. Icons and Idiots is a collection of shocking and often hilarious true stories and the lessons Lutz drew from them. From enduring the sadism of a Marine Corps drill instructor, to working with a washed-up alcoholic, to taking over the reins from a convicted felon, he reflects on the complexities of all-too-human leaders. No textbook or business school course can fully capture their idiosyncrasies, foibles and weaknesses - which can make or break companies in the real world. Lutz shows that we can learn just as much from the most stubborn, stupid, and corrupt leaders as we can from the inspiring geniuses. He offers fascinating profiles of icons and idiots such as. Eberhard von Kuenheim. The famed CEO of BMW was an aristocrat-cum-street fighter who ruled with secrecy, fear, and deft maneuvering.Harold A. Red Poling A Ford CEO and the ultimate bean counter. If it couldn t be quantified, he didn t want to know about it.Lee Iacocca The legendary Chrysler CEO appeared to be brillant and bold, but was often vulnerable and insecure behind the scenes.G. Richard Rick Wagoner The perfect peacetime CEO whose superior intelligence couldn t save GM from steep decline and a government bailout. As Lutz writes: We ll examine bosses who were profane, insensitive, totally politically incorrect, and who appropriated insignificant items from hotels or the company. We ll visit the mind of a leader who did little but sit in his office. We ll look at another boss who could analyze a highly complex profit-and-loss statement or a balance sheet at a glance, yet who, at times, failed to grasp the simplest financial mechanisms--how things actually worked in practice to create the numbers in the real world. The result is a powerful and entertaining guide for any aspiring leader. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781591846963

Item Description: Dog Ear Publishing, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 202 x 126 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Supermarket Guy III: Supermarket Dominium takes off from a peaceful time of robust growth for Harold s supermarket chain. With the evil Jon Acadou behind bars in a maximum-security prison, nothing seems to be threatening these prosperous and peaceful times. A new supermarket chain, the Edmundo Market, is just on the heels of Harold s own franchise. He soon finds out that it only takes a few days for his world to turn inside out. Mr. Acadou escapes from prison, with his heart set on retaking the helm of the Edmundo Market after having his own one-sided, deluded religious conversion. He discovers much has changed with his foster son, Edmund, at the reins, and Edmund refuses to hand over control. Instead, Edmund plans on world domination with an engineered concoction that will make everyone duly follow him. Suddenly, Jon Acadou needs the help of his old rival in order to stop him in his tracks as the police, military, and total population swing over to Edmund s thinking. All of Harold s friends now rush to abandon him. Harold and Acadou become wanted fugitives. Having lost everything, now Harold must trust and rely on an old foe who continues to accidently cause him near-death experiences along the way. A seemingly harmless bite from an experimental singing sheep gives Harold supersheep powers. But will it be enough to stop Edmund s bewildering plot to blow up the entire world under a total nuclear assault?. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781457520716

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: .discovered that the fierce animosity so long existing between the Saxons of the South and the Anglo-Danes of the North had so far died away that the angry leaders could not precipitate a battle. Godwin and the king were obliged, by a popular sentiment, to make peace and to refer their difficulties to the lvitenagemot for settlement. But before the time of the meeting of that body the tide had so turned against Godwin that he was unable to sustain his cause, and he was banished. Together with his wife and three of his sons, he set sail for Flanders, where he was cordially received by Baldwin, count of that province. The princes Harold and Leofwin escaped from the western coast and made their way to Ireland. Having thus freed himself from the presence of the male members of the House of Godwin, the king next turned his anger upon his wife Editha, who, as will be re membered, was a daughter of the banished earl. From her Edward took away her estates and jewels, and then, when she was completely broken in spirit, confined her in the monastery of Vherwell. Thus, for the time, was the Saxon party overthrown and scattered. Relieved of the presence of his most formidable opponents, Edward gave free rein to his preference for the people and institutions of Normandy. The Norman nobles came over in great numbers, and settled at his court. Even Prince Vi.lliam, the illegitimate son of Duke Robert, availed himself of the opportunity to tarry for a season with Edward and his friends. Nor is it doubtful that this ambitious aspirant, who was destined to play so important a part in the history of medizeval England, was already, on the occasion of his visit, looking to the possibilities of the future. King Edward was childless, and it was said that he. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781236896025

These small gems often lie undiscovered by many visitors as they sit in the spectacular shadow of Arlington Row. Bibury sits scattered around the Church of St Mary that dates back to the 8th century. The Saxon period covered a time from the end of Roman Britain and the establishment of Anglo-Saxon kingdoms in the 5th century and came to an end in 1066 when William of Normandy came to England and defeated Harold. Some 30 or so years after the Black Death had wiped out almost half of the population and during the rein of Richard II (1377-1399) the world famous timber framed Arlington Row was built (around 1380,) its original use was as a wool store but was then converted into weavers cottages during the booming 17th century economy. The steep pitch on the roofs are thought to have housed the workers looms. Today Bibury retains a magical and etherial quality of England past. It seems as if it is woven into the fabric of the village. The quiet tranquility, ancient history and quintessential Englishness of Bibury attracts people from all over the world. William Morris who had a summer retreat nearby described it as surely the most beautiful village in EnglandA . A view which is difficult to argue with, even Hollywood recognised the village as being pure England, and used Arlington Row as part of the mythical village of Wall in the film Stardust . Henry Ford also thought Arlington Row was something of an English gem. Whilst visiting the Cotswolds he attempted to buy the entire row of houses and ship them back to his home in Michigan, and then re-build them so that he could include them in his history theme park. The Gloucestershire Archaeological Trust managed to block this plan and The Row was bought and restored by the Royal Society of Arts. The National Trust subsequently took ownership in 1949. Henry Ford had to make do with a cottage from another Cotswold village. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780956510211

Wrinkling to Pages 3 - 6, Otherwise Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. 159 pages. hardcover. 0811209407. Jacket photograph by Victor Nekrasov of the house Bulgakov lived in as a child and as a young man, courtesy of Ardis Publishers; design by Harold Wortsman. Translated from the Russian by Mirra Ginsburg. keywords: Literature Translated Russia Drama. inventory # 13963. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Mikhail Bulgakov (1891-1940) required the dramatic and fictional forms ‘as the pianist needs both his left and his right hands,’ While he is best known here for his novels, in the U.S.S.R. he is also famous for his plays. Neither of the plays in this volume, FLIGHT (1926-28) and BLISS (1934), was published until long after the author’s death, By 1929, his persistent refusal to conform to the demands of the Communist government and critics had led to a ban on all his work, FLIGHT was not produced until 1957, and BLISS has never yet been produced. FLIGHT incensed the critics because Bulgakov treated some of the Civil War’s Whites as suffering, doomed human beings rather than stock images of ‘the class enemy.’ This tragicomedy is dominated by the nightmare figure of General Khludov, both executioner and victim, disintegrating as his world disintegrates. Charnota, on the other hand, is the hyperbolic image of a man hellbent for destruction, descending from White Major General to penniless gambler in Constantinople’s cockroach races. In BLISS, for the first time in English translation, the engineer Rein travels to the past in his time machine and returns with Ivan the Terrible accidentally in tow. Four centuries ahead of his time, the Tsar is stranded in Rein’s attic, bellowing imprecations. The bureaucrat Bunsha (a former prince who, for security in a proletarian state, insists he is the illegitimate son of his father’s coachman) is foiled in efforts to report this tumultuous housing violation by an involuntary trip with Rein to the year 2222. A pickpocket, Miloslavsky, also transported to this serene, policeless future, weeps nostalgically before the museum effigy of a policeman. Mirra Ginsburg’s translations include the bestselling THE MASTER AND MARGARITA and other Bulgakov novels. Eldest son of a professor at the Kiev Theological Academy, Mikhail Afanasievich Bulgakov was born in that city in 1891. After graduating in. medicine at Kiev University, Bulgakov was sent in 1916 (as an alternative to army service) to his first practice in a remote country region of one of the north-western provinces of Russia. There he worked for two years in sole charge of a local govenment clinic serving a large and scattered rural population. Late in 1918, after a spell as a hospital intern, Bulgakov returned to his native Kiev, where he set up in private practice as a specialist in venereology. Driven out, it seems, by the intolerable strains imposed on a doctor in a city racked by civil war, he left Kiev for the Caucasus; it was at this time, in 1919 or 1920, that Bulgakov resolved to give up medicine for a full-time literary career. Moving north to Moscow in the early twenties, Bulgakov endured a period of hardship and struggle to gain recognition as a writer. His first success was his novel The White Guard, originally published in serial form in 1925 and based on his experience of Kiev in the civil war, which he turned into a play for the Moscow Arts Theatre with the altered title of The Days of the Titrbins. From then on Bulgakov’s career was intimately bound up with the stage, in particular with the Moscow Arts Theatre under the joint direction of Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko, where he worked as an. assistant producer and resident dramatist until his break with Stanislavsky in 1936. After some time spent as an opera librettist with the Bolshoi Theatre, he was reduced to literary impotence by Stalin’s increasingly harsh censorship. Bulgakov fell ill with a painful kidney complaint in 1939, wen. Bookseller Inventory # 13963

Item Description: ADVANTAGE MEDIA GROUP, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 150 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. For anyone who wants better relationships and success at the office and at home. In solution-focused leadership, a leader recognizes, affirms, harnesses, and encourages further development of the strengths of those around him or her, while guiding the team toward a mutually-agreed-upon vision. Like horses, people in the workplace want to be treated fairly and with respect, are willing to take responsibility, and want to productively contribute. They want to participate, be heard, trust and be trusted, and make a difference. Neither horses nor people are motivated by rules and organizational bureaucracies. Instead, getting through the day in peace, doing a good job, building enduring relationships with others, and finding joy in what they do helps them discover meaning and purpose in their lives. Many of our top industry producers fail to become superior contributors until they learn to be other-focused. Through conscious and consistent effort, a producer s relationship competence can be raised to the level of his or her technical competence, resulting in a highly-valued leader, supervisor, and manager. Taking the Reins encourages management techniques focused on relationships, supervision based on realistic expectations, and leadership through recognition of the strengths of others.

Item Description: AudioGo, United States, 2014. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. Unabridged. 145 x 132 mm. Language: English Brand New. When Bob Lutz retired from General Motors in 2010 after an unparalleled forty-seven-year career in the auto industry, he was one of the most respected leaders in American business. He had survived all kinds of managers over those decades: tough and timid, analytical and irrational, charismatic and antisocial, and some who seemed to shift frequently among all those traits. His experiences made him an expert on leadership, every bit as much as he was an expert on cars and trucks. Now Lutz is revealing the leaders good, bad, and ugly who made the strongest impression on him throughout his career. Icons and Idiots is a collection of shocking and often hilarious true stories and the lessons Lutz drew from them. From enduring the sadism of a Marine Corps drill instructor, to working with a washed-up alcoholic, to taking over the reins from a convicted felon, he reflects on the complexities of all-too-human leaders. No textbook or business school course can fully capture their idiosyncrasies, foibles, and weaknesses which can make or break companies in the real world. Lutz shows that we can learn just as much from the most stubborn, stupid, and corrupt leaders as we can from the inspiring geniuses. He offers fascinating profiles of icons and idiots such as Eberhard von Kuenheim: the famed CEO of BMW was an aristocrat cum street fighter who ruled with secrecy, fear, and deft maneuvering. Harold A. Red Poling: a Ford CEO and the ultimate bean counter. If it couldn t be quantified, he didn t want to know about it. Lee Iacocca: the legendary Chrysler CEO appeared to be brilliant and bold but was often vulnerable and insecure behind the scenes. G. Richard Rick Wagoner: the perfect peacetime CEO whose superior intelligence couldn t save GM from steep decline and a government bailout. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9781469027494
