One of the Top 100 Business Thought Leaders in America gives you his very best advice and guidance. For nearly two decades John Spence has served as a trusted advisor and coach to senior executives at top companies around the globe. They turn to him because of his wealth of experience working with clients such as Microsoft, IBM, GE, Qualcomm and Apple—to hundreds of small to medium-sized businesses and entrepreneurial start-ups.
Because his clients know that he has read a minimum of 120 business books a year since 1989, they will often ask him to summarize the key points of what he has learned on a specific topic into a “letter” that will help them learn a new skill or make a major business decision. Letters to a CEO is a compilation of the actual letters that John has sent to his clients in the last few years. It covers such critical business topics such as: How to make good decisions The fundamentals of win/win negotiations How to hire the right people Ideas on what it takes to be successful in sales How to win in your market Dealing with poor performers Increasing accountability throughout the organization How to build a winning culture Thoughts on strategic planning The importance of having a mentor And much more… Each letter is only a few pages long but every one is packed with John’s best ideas, insights and ons learned as the CEO of ten companies. Add the knowledge he gained in reading nearly 3,000 business books in his quest to learn as much as he possibly could on what it takes to build, grow and sustain a highly successful organization and you have Letters to a CEO. Reading this book is like having a top Fortune 500 executive coach standing by to give you great advice whenever you need it.
Il Sole è il corpo celeste più importante per l'uomo e per la scienza. Stranamente, è anche tra i meno conosciuti. Posto ad appena 150 milioni di chilometri dalla Terra, con un volume che potrebbe contenere un milione e trecentomila pianeti come il nostro, è anche la stella che possiamo studiare meglio e che meglio può aiutarci a comprendere alcuni meccanismi fondamentali dell'universo e dello stesso microcosmo atomico. In queste pagine Piero Bianucci, uno dei più noti divulgatori scientifici italiani, ricostruisce duemila anni di studi solari.
Dalle osservazioni degli antichi Egizi alle ultime ricerche sul mistero dei neutrini. Fino alle soglie del Duemila. Fino alla sonda "Ulisse" che l'Agenzia spaziale europea ha lanciato per spiarne i segreti.

It's been a while since Mexican Cartel Boss Alexus Costilla had a firm grip on Chicago's illicit drug market. She knows that despite the recent spike in gang related homicides, the Windy City is the land of opportunity for a drug trafficking Queenpin like herself. All she needs is a street organization to move the product. Enter Lee "Juice" Wilkins, of North Lawndale the leader of one of the most dominant street gangs on the west side of Chicago. He's not content with purchasing kilos of cocaine from his Mexican connect, who is clearly nothing more than a middle man in the grand scheme of things. Juice wants his product directly from the source, and when his girlfriend's wealthy ex suggests they travel to California to meet with him, Juice agrees without a moment's hesitation. The ex- Alexus Costilla's husband Bulletface- had been a drug Kingpin before rising to the top of the music industry. Juice enlisted two close friends and their wives to accompany him and his girlfriend to Los Angeles, and what begins as a business trip turns out to be a drama-filled day of scandalous affairs, untrusting spouses, and cold blooded murder.
