Charming Your Way to the Top
Charm is good business. It can increase your income. boost your status. and establish and maintain your reputation. In many cases. it can mean the difference between success and bankruptcy. However. most businesspeople don’t fully understand the concept of charm. It ought to be a reflex. a conditioned response. to „turn on the charm” when dealing with customers. clients. associates. and employees-but it isn’t. despite the fact that the value of charm has been made clear through opinion polls. scientific studies. and just plain old real life. It’s true in politics. And it’s certainly true in entertainment. a whole business based on the money-making potential of charm. This is true for the small businessperson as well. Charm draws customers. whether to a garage. a dry cleaner’s. or an investment bank. Charm gets noticed. When a customer contacts a firm for the first time. charm can seal the deal. But charm is only partly innate. Much of it is learned. from your parents. from your friends. and from people like author Michael Levine. who has made a lifelong point of paying attention to charm. And you can learn how to make it work for you. How do you succeed in business without really trying? By charming your way to the top.

Kuba Błażyk obiecujący szablista warszawskiej Legii bierze udział w Spartakiadzie w bratnim NRD. Walczy dobrze. nawet za dobrze. Jest połowa lat 80 tych a jego przeciwnik Rosjanin nie może przegrać.

Lubią oglądać krew. najlepiej upuszczoną bronią białą. Zawodnik najlepszego polskiego klubu wojskowego kontra najlepiej opłacani zabójcy Europy. Prawdziwa walka to nie są wygibasy Errola Flynna z Robin Hooda. ani Lancastera z Karmazynowego Pirata. Ani zabawa sportowa. Prawdziwa walka to ciężar broni. gra ze śmiercią. które nie ma nic wspólnego ze sportem. Pierwsza rzecz – aby zabić ostrą

Jack Keefe is a talented. brash. and conceited young bush-league pitcher. Impervious to both advice and sarcasm. Keefe rises to the heights. but his inability to learn from his mistakes might just be his undoing. Told through a series of letters written from Keefe to his friend. Al. this baseball classic maintains a balance between the funny and the moving. the pathetic and the glorious. Nostalgic in its view of pre-World War I America. a time before the „live” ball. a time filled with names like Ty Cobb. Charles Comiskey. Walter Johnson. and Eddie Cicotte. this is not a simple period piece. It is about competition. about the ability to reason. and. most of all. it is about being human. First published in 1914. You Know Me Al tells us as much about ourselves today as it did nearly a hundred years ago.
