Paul Graham (Hackers and Painters) has mentioned that an important read for preparing to start your own business is How To Win Friends and Influence People. I'm happy to report that this gem from 1936 is timeless and truly life-changing.

"Customer Relationship Management: The Winning Strategy in a Challenging Economy"
As the economic environment continues to fluctuate, many organizations are asking themselves what strategies they can pursue to bring tangible business benefits while taking stock of the economic conditions.
In a growth economy, businesses typically work hard to expand their customer base and spend aggressively to stoke the growth engine. When money is tight however, existing customer relationships grow in importance as organizations seek a cost-effective way to nurture business expansion.
I have been coaching top executives for a decade. In this book I am going to share my secrets of
masterful coaching with leaders at all levels.When I wrote Masterful Coaching in 1995, I said
that I wanted to map the territory of coaching. I declared that coaching was about expanding people’s
capacity to realize an impossible future and win in the great game of business. I articulated
the notion that the fastest, most powerful way to develop extraordinary leaders is to coach them

I’ve always believed that college basketball is about the players, so to me, 100 years
of Carolina Basketball should celebrate the young men who have worked so hard
to represent the University of North Carolina. Without them, we wouldn’t need
coaches like me. When I look back at the history of Carolina Basketball, I think
first about the players.
The way I think about them might surprise you. Our players have given me so
many memorable experiences. It’s those interactions on and off the court—even
more than the wins or the championships—which I have treasured....

prices of the items you sell on eBay. Poor photographs are a handicap
to eBay sales. Average photographs will generate an average amount of
interest for an item and consequently will not bring the maximum
number of bidders or the maximum potential winning bid amount.

I can still remember the day I realized marketing had changed forever. It was summer of 2004. I was reading an article about Kryptonite, a manufacturer of bicycle locks. Kryptonite had found itself in uncharted territory after a series of forum posts and an online video revealed how the brand’s tubular bike locks could be opened with a simple BIC pen. At first, the company denied the claim’s validity. But as word (and ire) spread like wildfire across the Internet’s budding social sphere, Kryptonite soon realized it had to change its way of thinking. In a bold move, its leaders...

The orthodox answer to these questions looks inside our brains to see
what they are made of and how the various components operate.

with the United Automobile Workers Union for
years, as stage after stage of the dispute has demonstrated
the things that have gone wrong in the labor
policy of the United States. But its full value as a
textbook illustration of the defects of our labor policy

National Labor Relations Board handed down its
decision on the charges brought by the UAW against

resolve conflicts.Mediation offers an alternative
approach and it is one that can be quite efficient
and successful. Mediation can be faster, less
expensive, and can lead to creative solutions not
