Конец XVIII века, Россия. У ставшего Тёмным Иным гвардейского поручика Андрея Полынского не задалась служба в Дневном Дозоре Санкт-Петербурга, и он переводится в Тверь. Казалось бы – сонная провинция, но ведь известно, что в тихой воде… Юноша не сразу осознает, что новый начальник использует его в качестве пешки в тонкой игре, причем пешки, способной превратиться в совершенно неожиданную фигуру.
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.

下手奪命時，手法亦如是？ 恐怖分子的洋傘，翩翩迴旋映藍天── 十月的那個星期六午後，新宿中央公園晴朗無風，氣氛祥和。我和平常一樣，橫躺在一片枯萎的草地上，從紙袋中拿出酒瓶，發抖的手將塑膠小杯斟滿威士忌，然後，金黃色的液體流過喉嚨，進到我的胃裡。 我叫島村圭介，白天是個酒精中毒的流浪漢，晚上做點小酒吧生意。原以為今天和過去一年裡的每一天相同，直到一聲震耳的巨響從地底傳來──這聲音我是知道的，是炸藥引起的爆炸聲。 熱鬧的中央公園頓時成了人間煉獄，哀嚎聲四起，大批人群正從煙霧升起處朝我奔來。我反方向往前走去，想找尋不久前跟我說過話、小提琴拉得很好的小女孩。我往爆炸的中心走去，往恐怖分子的犯罪動機走去，也往二十二年前早已告別、不堪回首的青春走去……
(Book). Gene Clark soared to fame as a founding member and frontman of The Byrds, one of the most important and influential groups of the '60s. His songwriting with The Byrds and subsequent work as a solo artist and with Dillard & Clark mark him as one of rock's key innovators and a pioneer of folk-rock, psychedelia, and alt-country. Yet Clark's personal demons shadowed him throughout his life, and until now his legacy has been clouded in mystery. Told through the personal recollections of those closest to Clark, Mr. Tambourine Man offers a rare glimpse into his life and work, a revealing portrait of one of rock's greatest bands, and a cautionary tale of the pitfalls of fame. Endorsed by the Gene Clark estate, the book also features rare and previously unseen photos from family and friends.
