Written by one of the great instructors of the modern era, Bruce Pandolfini, it is in fact a small excerpt from his extremely popular book Let's Play Chess (2nd edition). After the material is presented, there is a section listing and describing the chess books published by Russell Enterprises, Inc. which are also available in electronic format.

          When a determined Irish Catholic priest and a tough Jewish police detective team up to solve the murder of a gorgeous showgirl, the evidence of violence and corruption they uncover tears the town apart!

          Of his fast and unusual thriller Jack Webb writes: “The Big Sin was written because I needed faith in myself. So I wrote a story about faith … For all the gaudiness my story may wear as a mystery filled with violence, good is good in it, and bad, bad, ant there’s strength enough in the simply faith within to swing the outcome.”

          Father Shanley refused to believe that Rose had committed the big sin.

              Shut Up and Kiss Me by Christie Craig (2011, re-released by author via Smashwords; previously published by LoveSpell/Dorchester Publishing)


              Welcome to Precious, Texas, where fistfights serve as dinner theater and fire ants rain from the sky. The locals are very friendly, if a bit eccentric. No pictures please, or you may find yourself a guest of the county morgue.

              Photojournalist Shala Winters already had her hands full bringing tourism to this backward, podunk town, but her job just got tougher. Pictures can say a thousand words, and one of Shala's is screaming bloody murder. Now she has to entrust a macho, infuriating lawman with her life -- but she'll never trust him with her heart.

              Trusted or not, Sky Gomez isn't about to let a killer get his hands on Shala's Nikon -- or any of her more comely assets, for that matter. Her mouth might move faster than a Piney Woods roadrunner, but all he can think about is how good it must taste...and how she'll never escape true love.

                  Global Franchising Operations Management: Cases in International and Emerging Markets Operations 
                  by Ilan Alon


                  Global Franchising Operations Management: Cases in International and Emerging Markets Operations


                  Franchising now represents more than 10% of the US economy and 50% of US retail sales, and this winning business model is now showing exceptional promise outside the US as well. Both franchisors and franchisees are beginning to discover immense opportunities to extend operations or build new franchises in emerging markets. Of course, success will depend on their ability to execute – and extending successful franchising operations outside their home markets requires significant new skills, knowledge, and expertise. In Global Franchising Operations Management, the field’s leading expert and author brings together an unprecedented collection of in-depth cases that illuminate the field’s unexplored opportunities, key pitfalls, and proven best practices. Ilan Alon thoroughly covers key challenges from both the franchisor and franchisee perspective, teaching lessons learned by Marks and Spencer, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Athlete’s Foot, Kodak, Sari Organic, and other pioneers. Through these cases, he addresses pivotal issues such as: Should you take your franchise operation global? What unique marketing and demand management challenges will you face in doing so? Do Master Franchisee or Micro-Franchising strategies make sense for you? What are their risks, and can those risks be managed? How can you efficiently manage logistics, supply chains, and operations in unfamiliar markets? Whatever your role or potential role in global franchising operations, this book will be an indispensable resource.

                  How the financial crisis really happened, and what it really meant: 3 books packed with lessons for investors and policymakers!

                  These three books offer unsurpassed insight into the causes and implications of the global financial crisis: information every investor and policy-maker needs to prepare for an extraordinarily uncertain future. In Financial Shock, Updated Edition, renowned economist Mark Zandi provides the most concise, lucid account of the economic, political, and regulatory causes of the collapse, plus new insights into the continuing impact of the Obama administration’s policies. Zandi doesn’t just illuminate the roles of mortgage lenders, investment bankers, speculators, regulators, and the Fed: he offers sensible recommendations for preventing the next collapse. In Extreme Money, best-selling author and global finance expert Satyajit Das reveals the spectacular, dangerous money games that are generating increasingly massive bubbles of fake growth, prosperity, and wealth, while endangering the jobs, possessions, and futures of everyone outside finance. Das explains how everything from home mortgages to climate change have become fully financialized… how “voodoo banking” keeps generating massive phony profits even now… and how a new generation of “Masters of the Universe” has come to own the world. Finally, in The Fearful Rise of Markets, top Financial Times global finance journalist John Authers reveals how the first truly global super bubble was inflated, and may now be inflating again. He illuminates the multiple roots of repeated financial crises, presenting a truly global view that avoids both oversimplification and ideology. Most valuable of all, Authers offers realistic solutions: for decision-makers who want to prevent disaster, and investors who want to survive it.
