Item Description: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 280 x 216 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Jefferson Worth s outfit of four mules and a big wagon pulled out of San Felipe at daybreak, headed for Rubio City. From the swinging red tassels on the bridles of the leaders to the galvanized iron water bucket dangling from the tail of the reach back of the rear axle the outfit wore an unmistakable air of prosperity. The wagon was loaded only with a well-stocked grub-box, the few necessary camp cooking utensils, blankets and canvas tarpaulin, with rolled barley and bales of hay for the team, and two water barrels-empty. Hanging by its canvas strap from the spring of the driver s seat was a large, cloth-covered canteen. Behind the driver there was another seat of the same wide, comfortable type, but the man who held the reins was apparently alone. Jefferson Worth was not with his outfit.

Item Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 200 x 132 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 # AAS9781591846963

Item Description: Hamburg : Rowohlt. Book Condition: Gut. Ausgabe: Ungekuerzte Ausg., 1. - 50. Tsd. Umfang/Format: 256 Seiten , 8 Erscheinungsjahr: 1958 Gesamttitel: rororo Taschenbuch , Ausg. 248 ZU DIESEM BUCH Der am 31. Mai 1907 in London geborene englische Essayist, Journalist und Reiseschriftsteller Peter Fleming studierte in Eton und Oxford. Er war prominenter Mitarbeiter führender Londoner Zeitschriften und Zeitungen wie des Evening Standard , des Spectator und der Times . Als Times-Sonderberichterstatter führten ihn Reisen nach Brasilien, Rußland, China und Japan. Sie fanden ihren Niederschlag in drei der originellsten Reisebücher der zeitgenössischen englischen Literatur, die auch in Deutschland unzählige Leser fanden: dem hier wieder vorliegenden Brasilianischen Abenteuer (1933), dem China-Buch Mit mir allein (i) und dem Mandschurei-Buch Tataren-Nachrichten (1936). Vor allem sein Brasilien-Buch offenbarte Fleming als einen Meister des ironischen Stils. INHALT: Fleming erzählt, wie er, eine Anzeige in der Seufzerspalte der Times aufgreifend, Teilnehmer einer Expedition wird, die das Schicksal des Obersten Fawcett erforschen will, der 1925 in Zentralbrasilien verschollen ist. Unter wachsenden Entbehrungen und wüsten Strapazen dringt die Gesellschaft in die fernsten Dschungel des Amazonas ein, nicht viel besser ausgerüstet als bei einer Ausflugspartie ins schottische Hochland, aber mit einem Sinn für Parodie, der bei diesem Unternehmen von Anfang an lebendig war , wie Fleming selbst bemerkte. Harold Nicolson rühmte an dem Buch: Erstens: die lebendige Schilderung eines Landes, einer Fauna und Flora, die fast unbekannt ist. Zweitens: den Zauber aller Fährten- und Schatz gräberromantik. Drittens: die Reflexion eines intelligenten Kopfes über Erfahrungen rein physischer Art. Viertens: die kühne Beobachtung und den sehr männlichen Witz. Fünftens: das ermutigende und überzeugende Selbstporträt eines jungen Menschen unserer Zeit. Peter Fleming nahm am Zweiten Weltkrieg aktiv teil. Eine von ihm 194o veröffentlichte politisch-utopische Satire behandelt Hitlers Landung in England, eine weitere 1951 veröffentlichte Die sechste Kolonne (rororo Nr. 8o) persiflierte den Kampf des British Intelligence Service gegen russisches Spionageunwesen in London. 1957 erschien eine politisch-strategische Untersuchung über Hitlers englische Invasionsabsichten unter dem Titel Operation Sea Lion . ordentliches Exemplar, Einband und Buchblock mit kleinen Lesespuren, Buchblock altersgemäß gebräunt, Gesamtzustand: gut .KUNDENINFROMATION: Bitte zahlen sie Bücher unter 5€ nicht per Kreditkarte.

Item Description: Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Little Old Lady The little old lady sat rather primly in her easy chair. Her face with its sharp, fine lines, her beautiful white hair, her eyes which could yet flash with a vital luster, and the quiet charm of her gown, made her an arresting figure. She clearly had come out of another age into this. But she did not simply suggest lavender and old lace. She seemed very much at home in the world of to-day. There was a shrewd alertness about her which suggested that not much of significance escaped her scrutiny. And withal there was a sympathetic kindliness in her expression which made you feel at once that she was the sort of person to be a human shelter in a time of storm. I flung myself in the chair beside her, while she looked up inquiringly. No, don t ask me a single question, I began. You are always picking up the reins and setting me going on a conversational trot when I come to hear you talk. To-day I m going to have my way.

Item Description: Sergeant Press. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 346 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.8in.Emerging from the long shadow cast by his formidable father, Harold Godwineson showed himself to be a worthy successor to the Earldom of Wessex. In the following twelve years, he became the Kings most trusted advisor, practically taking the reins of government into his own hands. And on Edward the Confessors death, Harold Godwineson mounted the thronethe first king of England not of royal blood. Yet Harold was only a man, and his rise in fortune was not blameless. Like any person aspiring to power, he made choices he wasnt particularly proud of. Unfortunately, those closest to him sometimes paid the price of his fame. This is a story of Godwines family as told from the viewpoint of Harold and his younger brothers. Queen Editha, known for her Vita dwardi Regis, originally commissioned a work to memorialize the deeds of her family, but after the Conquest historians tell us she abandoned this project and concentrated on her husband, the less dangerous subject. In THE SONS OF GODWINE and FATAL RIVALRY, I am telling the story as it might have survived had she collected and passed on the memoirs of her tragic brothers. This book is part two of The Last Great Saxon Earls series. Book one, GODWINE KINGMAKER, depicted the rise and fall of the first Earl of Wessex who came to power under Canute and rose to preeminence at the beginning of Edward the Confessors reign. Unfortunately, Godwines misguided efforts to champion his eldest son Swegn recoiled on the whole family, contributing to their outlawry and Queen Edithas disgrace. Their exile only lasted one year and they returned victorious to London, though it was obvious that Harolds career was just beginning as his fathers journey was coming to an end. Harolds siblings were all overshadowed by their famous brother; in their memoirs we see remarks tinged sometimes with admiration, sometimes with skepticism, and in Tostigs case, with jealousy. We see a Harold who is ambitious, self-assured, sometimes egocentric, imperfect, yet heroic. His own story is all about Harold, but his brothers see things a little differently. Throughout, their observations are purely subjective, and witnessing events through their eyes gives us an insiders perspective. Harold was his mothers favorite, confident enough to rise above petty sibling rivalry. But Tostig, next in line, was not so lucky. Harold would have been surprised by Tostigs vindictiveness, if he had ever given his brother a second thought. And that was the problem. Tostigs lovehate relationship with Harold would eventually destroy everything they worked for, leaving the country open to foreign conquest. This subplot comes to a crisis in book three of the series, FATAL RIVALRY. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback.

Item Description: Dog Ear Publishing, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 202 x 126 mm. Language: English . 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 # AAV9781457520716

The Supermarket Guy III: Supermarket Dominium takes off from a peaceful time of robust growth for Harold s supermarket chain.

Item Description: Penguin Books India, 2014. Softcover. Book Condition: 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 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. Printed Pages: 240. Bookseller Inventory # 79694

Item Description: Fairlane Publishing, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Harold Freeman enjoyed success as a player including a World Series championship until it was cut short due to injury. His managerial career has not been as smooth but that is all behind him as he takes the reins of the Toledo Mud Hens for the 2014 season. After a last place finish in the International League s West Division a season ago, can he turn the team around? When a veteran pitcher challenges Freeman to deliver a Championship, what looked like a shot at redemption may turn into a disaster. Freeman will need to resort to every trick in the book (and a couple that aren t written down) to lead Toledo to the top. Turning to Alex Casillas, a Cuban national with untapped potential, Freeman looks to reinvent a rag-tag group of eccentrics into a professional squad. A first baseman who is larger than life but unable to field, a starting pitcher whose vanity and narcissism lead to a gambling problem, injuries, and more plague the team on the field. The trials of life await them off the field. It is going to one hell of a year. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780996134101
