Description : One of the oldest myths in business is that every customer is a valuable customer. Even in the age of high-tech data collection, many businesses don't realize that some of their customers are deeply unprofitable, and that simply doing business with them is costing them money. In many places, it's typical that the top 20 percent of customers are generating almost all the profit while the bottom 20 percent are actually destroying value. Managers are missing tremendous opportunities if they are not aware which of their customers are truly profitable and which are not. According to Larry Selden and Geoff Colvin, there is a way to fix this problem: manage your business not as a collection of products and services but as a customer portfolio. Selden and Colvin show readers how to analyze customer data to understand how you can get the most out of your most critical customer segments. The authors reveal how some companies (such as Best Buy and Fidelity Investments) have already moved in this direction, and what customer-centric strategies are likely to become widespread in the coming years. For corporate leaders, middle managers, or small business owners, this book offers a breakthrough plan to delight their best customers and drive shareowner value. From the Hardcover edition.

Description : "Guardian Angel" the Book is like an Odyssey; a journey that questions and challenges the ethos of man through the ages; especially in East Africa, irrespective of time, site or circumstance. The author has consistently refused to veer from this contention; however unpalatable some of the home-truths that surfaces along the way; for this is not a fictional novel, but the living experiences of a suffering people through time. Many of the characters he faced in his battle for survival, were men that had no good reason to stray from the honourable path to Independence, and the true freedoms of their people. The Manifestos were believable and opportunities to implement them in their entirety were not denied them. They even enjoyed hero status as they were the first; they were the undisputed bearers of the flags of freedom. But sadly, they and they alone must chose to betray this goodwill; they and they alone must have succumbed to the ills of power. "Guardian Angel" - The Book, so aptly lays bare their hypocrisy and betrayal, while confirming the bounteous beauty of life

Description : Both collectively and individually we have a deep and abiding fascination with angels. This book explores depictions of angels in the visual arts and in scripture and associated apocryphal and mystical writings, specifically in the Hebrew and Christian Bibles and Islamic, Zoroastrian and other ancient and latter-day accounts. It examines the visual clues, artistic conventions and attributes that have been set down to help us to recognise angels in their particular roles and functions. Certain writings have had a particularly influential bearing on our understanding of angels. This text focuses on the hierarchies and orders proposed by the likes of Pseudo-Dionysius, St. Thomas Aquinas and others. In a new age of fascination with the metaphysical and supernatural (in film, television, popular mythology and literature), are we cementing or losing our connection with the authentic meaning and purpose that such vibrant and energised beings bring to our table? This book contains more than 30 illustrations in a central colour plates section. It also includes a useful glossary of terms and will prove a rich and enduring reference resource for libraries, as well as a stimulating go-to source for those interested in the world of angels and how human sensibilities and imaginative reasoning have enriched the subject, as a starting point for interreligious dialogue.
