´You can only find out the rights and wrongs by reasoning - never by being rude about your opponent´s psychology.´ For C. S. Lewis, reason and logic are the sensible way to approach faith and ethics. Much of the 20th century´s ills are caused by ill-founded beliefs and opinions. Lewis´ original approach remains as vital today as ever. He is able to take the most convoluted subject, turn it side on and shed bright illumination on it. To be able to see along things rather than at them - just like a beam of sunlight that invades the darkness of a toolshed - is, to Lewis, the way to understanding. Written variously between 1940 and 1962, this collection of essays represents the best of Lewis´ considerable wisdom on the great ethical and theological concerns of the day. 1. Language: English.

Not everyone approves of the practice of negotiation. There are those who hate it because they think it is too confrontational, or they simply don´t want to be bothered. This audiobook will demonstrate that negotiations in everyday transactions do not necessarily have to be confrontational, instead, they can be fun. Becoming a master negotiator requires that you develop certain qualities, such as problem solving abilities, confidence, and the flexibility to change your tactic during the negotiation process. Practice always makes perfect, and the more time and resources you put into planning your negotiation, the higher the chances that you will succeed and get what you want. Remember that you are not the only one at the negotiation table, so be aware of the wide range of interests and perspectives present. Try to accommodate the views and concerns of others by listening carefully to what they are saying. Do not try to win every argument, this can make you look aggressive and rude to your opponent.

Students hesitate to talk about their problem. They may feel embarrassed. If only they could understand the problem is not theirs; it is the rude person who needs to feel superior. Talking about the situation can provide answers and support. Students should be aware that this problem exists for many. They can rise above it. One way is to band together with a small group. It can be harder to abuse a group than an individual. No one has the right to make another person´s life unhappy. Many victims of bullying never recover from the darkness and pain. This tale is of Anna Polis, a wealthy girl who enjoys sailing on the family´s yacht, Honey, each summer to Annapolis. The message is that all types are abused and must face the meanness of others. Anna is able, with the help of classmates, to weather the attacks. She even fulfills earlier dreams of greatness in her school. It is the next bully who almost destroys the young woman as she studies at Duke University. This foe is determined to end her life and all that she loves.
