Seymour, R. Ian

Closing is the most important part of any sale. It is often also the most difficult. Ian Seymour has personally closed more than $32 million in retail sales one on one. Now he wants to share "the secrets of professional sales closing" with salespeople everywhere and turn each salesperson into a real PRO-CLO (a professional sales closer). Written for anyone in business who wants to succeed, grow and prosper, this comprehensive sales closing manual provides step-by-step instructions on how to successfully close any and every sale. The author describes secrets, techniques, methods, and tactics that are proven to work. Among "The Thirty-Nine Steps to Success" detailed in Part One are "Ten Do's and Ten Don'ts," "A Dozen Little Tricks Of The Trade," "Non-Verbal Communication (Body Language)," and "The Difference Between Being Good And Being The Best." The remainder of the book presents solutions to the 42 most common objections, an arsenal of 60 proven closes, and advice on how to make hay while the sun shines. In short, this manual provides everything necessary for you to become a true PRO-CLO. Ian Seymour's selling career began as a teenager when he established his own business selling merchandise door-to-door. Since then he has travelled the world and made enough money from selling to be able to retire. He has for many years been involved in training sales personnel and is a much-sought-after speaker at sales-training seminars.

Philip Spires

In her trademark series, One-On-One, Christine Gardner, freelance journalist and television presenter, puts powerful people into the limelight. Her latest subject is Salleh Abdullah, once known as Trevor Cartwright, a British expatriate mathematician and convert to Islam. He has amassed a fortune and now international notoriety via his deft trading on financial markets using methods that thus far have defied all analysis. In just two years his fortune in equities has grown so great that his holdings in multinational companies are causing concern. To date, he has resisted all contact with the media, but Christine and he share a past, a past that both of them keenly recall. Cartwright finds her request to record episodes of One-On-One impossible to refuse. This will be Salleh Abdullah’s first media exposure. But who is Christine working for? Is she freelance? Or does she appear in someone else’s script? Perhaps her husband, Anthony Green, who watches his wife’s encounter with Salleh Abdullah from his office desk, can answer. Set on a private island in the South China Sea where Cartwright regularly retires to work, One-On-One follows the progress of Christine Gardiner’s project as allegiances begin to shift.

John Feinstein

John Feinstein's illuminating recollections from two decades of interviews with sports legends. John Feinstein's career is a sports fan's dream-a lifetime of encounters with the great figures in sports, not just on the field, but in the locker room and behind the scenes with legends like Bob Knight, Dean Smith, Mike Krzyzewski, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, and John McEnroe. Since his days as a young Washington Post journalist, Feinstein has written twenty-eight books and countless magazine articles and newspaper columns, covering college basketball, golf, tennis, baseball, and very nearly every sport in between. He has told us of victory and defeat, of athletes and coaches we love--and love to hate. But some of his best stories have been left untold, until now. One on One is an incredible portal into the sports we love-from the box scores and the pageantry of game night and into the hard work and intensity that turn players and coaches into legends.

Rod Johnson

What is this book about? Expert One-on-One J2EE Development without EJB shows Java developers and architects how to build robust J2EE applications without having to use Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB). This practical, code-intensive guide provides best practices for using simpler and more effective methods and tools, including JavaServer pages, servlets, and lightweight frameworks. What does this book cover? The book begins by examining the limits of EJB technology — what it does well and not so well. Then the authors guide you through alternatives to EJB that you can use to create higher quality applications faster and at lower cost — both agile methods as well as new classes of tools that have evolved over the past few years. They then dive into the details, showing solutions based on the lightweight framework they pioneered on SourceForge — one of the most innovative open source communities. They demonstrate how to leverage practical techniques and tools, including the popular open source Spring Framework and Hibernate. This book also guides you through productive solutions to core problems, such as transaction management, persistence, remoting, and Web tier design. You will examine how these alternatives affect testing, performance, and scalability, and discover how lightweight architectures can slash time and effort on many projects. What will you learn from this book? Here are some details on what you'll find in this book: How to find the simplest and most maintainable architecture for your application Effective transaction management without EJB How to solve common problems in enterprise software development using AOP and Inversion of Control Web tier design and the place of the Web tier in a well-designed J2EE application Effective data access techniques for J2EE applications with JDBC, Hibernate, and JDO How to leverage open source products to improve productivity and reduce custom coding How to design for optimal performance and scalability

Rod Johnson

What is this book about? The results of using J2EE in practice are often disappointing: applications are often slow, unduly complex, and take too long to develop. Rod Johnson believes that the problem lies not in J2EE itself, but in that it is often used badly. Many J2EE publications advocate approaches that, while fine in theory, often fail in reality, or deliver no real business value. Expert One-on-One: J2EE Design and Development aims to demystify J2EE development. Using a practical focus, it shows how to use J2EE technologies to reduce, rather than increase, complexity. Rod draws on his experience of designing successful high-volume J2EE applications and salvaging failing projects, as well as intimate knowledge of the J2EE specifications, to offer a real-world, how-to guide on how you too can make J2EE work in practice. It will help you to solve common problems with J2EE and avoid the expensive mistakes often made in J2EE projects. It will guide you through the complexity of the J2EE services and APIs to enable you to build the simplest possible solution, on time and on budget. Rod takes a practical, pragmatic approach, questioning J2EE orthodoxy where it has failed to deliver results in practice and instead suggesting effective, proven approaches. What does this book cover? In this book, you will learn When to use a distributed architecture When and how to use EJB How to develop an efficient data access strategy How to design a clean and maintainable web interface How to design J2EE applications for performance Who is this book for? This book would be of value to most enterprise developers. Although some of the discussion (for example, on performance and scalability) would be most relevant to architects and lead developers, the practical focus would make it useful to anyone with some familiarity with J2EE. Because of the complete design-deployment coverage, a less advanced developer could work through the book along with a more introductory text, and successfully build and understand the sample application. This comprehensive coverage would also be useful to developers in smaller organisations, who might be called upon to fill several normally distinct roles. What is special about this book? Wondering what differentiates this book from others like it in the market? Take a look: It does not just discuss technology, but stress its practical application. The book is driven from the need to solve common tasks, rather than by the elements of J2EE. It discuss risks in J2EE development It takes the reader through the entire design, development and build process of a non-trivial application. This wouldn't be compressed into one or two chapters, like the Java Pet Store, but would be a realistic example comparable to the complexity of applications readers would need to build. At each point in the design, alternative choices would be discussed. This would be important both where there's a real problem with the obvious alternative, and where the obvious alternatives are perhaps equally valid. It emphasizes the use of OO design and design patterns in J2EE, without becoming a theoretical book

(Applause Acting Series). Kids of today face a different world and a different set of challenges then did the children of even 15 years ago. Playing with a Purpose features a collection of monologues that reflects these new attitudes and circumstances. Highly diversified in its view of the family and the child's place in the world, the monologues have been chosen from several sources: from contemporary playwrights and screenwriters; from YouthPlays, a new company that specializes in publishing cutting-edge plays for the youth market; and from such conservatories for young actors as The Playground, the Los Angeles-based training center run by Gary Spatz, the leading acting coach for performers ages 6 to 16. "Playing with a purpose" is an idea that arose from Fife's work with young actors over the course of several decades. The included monologues have been chosen and arranged to allow for a young actor's development. From "Getting Started: Simple Situations and Circumstances" to "Intermediate: Adding Elements of Character" to "Advanced: Character Counts," each chapter includes pieces that will test the young actor's ability, while making use of the lessons presented in each.
