My name is Raymond Phillips. I graduated in 1996 with a bachelor´s degree in criminal justice. After graduating, I went to work for a private security firm as an analyst and during my time there I was assigned to a big corporate client who was involved in some illegal activities and unfortunately I was exposed to their actual act of crime. Afterward, I found myself running for my own safety and had to disappear seven years ago. Just two years ago the issues were finally resolved as they got exposed by the law enforcement and that business entity no longer exists and I was able to reappear. I sacrificed five most valuable years of my life running from them. In those five long years I used many innovative methods to keep myself from everyone and was able to stay alive, and since I got back, I started a new business as a top-notch privacy expert, I now work as a consultant for a few large multinational businesses. I started writing this book while I was away to help people that find themselves in similar situations for whatever reasons, but after writing a few chapters, I realized it would be impossible for me to publish it as I would leave enough paper trail which can jeopardize my own safety again. So I put the project on the back burner and forgot about it. Recently I was looking through some of the old files that I kept on a flash drive and found the file containing those chapters and decided to complete the book as I knew in my heart that this book could help some truly good and honest people. 1.

This audiobook was created based on Peter Drucker´s long business, consulting, and writing career. He focuses on what to do, what not to do, and how to keep a clear corporate identity and mission. He addresses how all organizations eventually go obsolete and their theory of their business no longer works. It addresses how GM did not move from income based to lifestyle based marketing for their cars, thus hastening their demise after seven decades of success betting on incomes only. He also points out, though, that the GM theory of the business still worked for Hughes and EDS, which GM bought. He describes how organizations must choose how to do things. This, he says, is why IBM was paralyzed by the different requirements of a PC versus Mainframe business. He states there are four specifications for a valid theory of a business: assumptions must fit reality; these assumptions about the environment, mission, and core competencies must fit together; the entire organization must know and understand the theory of the business and act accordingly; and the theory of the business must be tested constantly to be kept up to date. When testing the theory of the business, three things must be done if there is an issue: preventive care, early diagnosis before the problem becomes fatal, and applying the cure. This is a must read for all managers and entrepreneurs in all types of organizations: nonprofit, educational, governmental and companies. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Deaver Brown.

Own it, snowflakes: you´ve lost everything you claim to hold dear. White is Bret Easton Ellis´s first work of nonfiction. Already the bad boy of American literature, from Less Than Zero to American Psycho, Ellis has also earned the wrath of right-thinking people everywhere with his provocations on social media, and here he escalates his admonishment of received truths as expressed by today´s version of ´´the left.´´ Eschewing convention, he embraces views that will make many in literary and media communities cringe, as he takes aim at the relentless anti-Trump fixation, coastal elites, corporate censorship, Hollywood, identity politics, Generation Wuss, ´´woke´´ cultural watchdogs, the obfuscation of ideals once both cherished and clear, and the fugue state of American democracy. In a young century marked by hysterical correctness and obsessive fervency on both sides of an aisle that´s taken on the scale of the Grand Canyon, White is a clarion call for freedom of speech and artistic freedom. ´´The central tension in Ellis´s art - or his life, for that matter - is that while [his] aesthetic is the cool reserve of his native California, detachment over ideology, he can´t stop generating heat.... He´s hard-wired to break furniture.´´ (Karen Heller, The Washington Post) ´´Sweating with rage...humming with paranoia.´´ (Anna Leszkiewicz, The Guardian) ´´Snowflakes on both coasts in withdrawal from Rachel Maddow´s nightly Kremlinology lesson can purchase a whole book to inspire paroxysms of rage...a veritable thirst trap for the easily microaggressed. It´s all here. Rants about Trump derangement syndrome; MSNBC; #MeToo; safe spaces.´´ (Bari Weiss, The New York Times) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bret Easton Ellis.
