    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
    I used this text in my MBA stats class and have found it to be very informative and useful.I found the examples for Excel and Minitab to be well written and of great use.I would recommend this book for anyone who uses statistics on a frequent basis or simply would like a good reference manual in their library.

    1-0 out of 5 stars 12th ed. has problems
    The 12th edition of this book contains a surprising number of errors.I am currently using this book for a statistics course in an MBA program.We are twelve chapters into the book now and in most every chapter I have found a mistake; more often than not there are multiple mistakes.What is worse is that the majority of the mistakes are in the practice problems which are where the student learns to apply the skills.This serves to create confusion and frustration on the student's part.Some of the mistakes are sloppy editing while others more significant are providing wrong information.The editors need to take another look at this book and the authors should also take note.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Multi Media Public Speaking Training
    'Audience Centered' seems to be an obvious off-shoot of the teaching styles, that have become hyper-popular over the last decade or two, that claim to be 'Student Centered'. Is it just a buzz word, or is there something in it? As another reviewer points out, Audience Centered public speaking dates back at least as far back as Aristotle.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Sixth and Ever Better Edition
    You can't say that the audience-centered concept used in this book was pioneered by them. After all, in the first paragraph the authors give credit to Aristotle for defining the elements of speechmaking as 'of speaker, subject and person addresed - it is the last one, the herer, that determines the speaker's end and object.'
    4-0 out of 5 stars Good copy
    I know that this is a teacher's edition but I presumed that because it was, it would have come with the DVD which is included in the student's addition. Other wise the book is exactly the same as the student's edition and was sealed as stated. Overall, I am pleased with the transaction. ... Read more

    its not really that bad.no one would buy this book if they didn't have to.no one would ever buy textbooks if they didn't have to.but it waseasy to read and follow and i got an easy A in the class with the textbook.

    4-0 out of 5 stars balanced or biased?
    How interesting that the reviewers comment on the presumed politics of the writer before looking at the quality of the text. More interesting still, that some see the text slanted to the right and others to the left. Well done, Lucas.

    Pretty thorough text for anyone learning or brushing up on their skills...quite intuitive.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is one of the best business statistics book
    This book is used in the course of Business Statistics at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. This is a useful and understandable book. The questions are well-prepared.Also,the statistics program PhSTAT is given with this book. I advise you to buy.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Good, but could be better
    This book is okay, but it could definitely be better.For a basic statistics class, this book contains WAY too much information to digest in a semester of college.No professor I know of has ever gotten past chapter 8.Further, the problems are quite wimpy as far as the amount of thought required for them.Quite wimpy.Could be better.The only good thing is that for doing it on a spreadsheet, the data comes on a CD, so that you don't have to re-type it, thankfully. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Speech
    I trully enjoyed this book, even though I am not a fan of text books. It has helped me develop stronger speaking skills, and I am not very good at public speaking. It's not a how to book, its simply a guide which offers tips and ideas on how you should present various topics.

    5-0 out of 5 stars FINALLY, Someone who can teach public speaking!
    As a college instructor of oral communication for ten years, I complained bitterly about the poor selection of books for beginning students--until now.This is the single best book of its kind on the market, bar none.In all my years, I've never had students brag on a book like this one: easy to read, well-organized, thoughtful, practical, visually attractive, and substantive.My best compliment is that I can teach three times the material in half the time just by using this text--and people understand it!I can't brag enough on the author's work.This is phenomenal.ANYONE who wants to master the basics of public speaking should read this cover to cover.The principles and techniques Mr. Gregory describes are effective, powerful, and described in a simple way.BRAVO!I'll recommend this to everyone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD!
    I'm a student at a local college here in Jersey City. I found this book very easy to read but doesn't defeat the purpose to inform. I really wish I can have him as my teacher.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another Winner by Brian Tracy!
    Brian Tracy continues to amaze me! In this new book, Brian Tracy encompasses 2000 years of wisdom and makes it available in only 110 pages! Simple, brief and to the point. Power packed.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Commonsense advice. Mighty thin volume.
    Brian Tracy has produced another great headline (Eat that Frog!) on which to hang 21 simple, straightforward pieces of advice, but as with his other books this motivational speaker has produced a very thin volume - just 117 pages. Brevity can be a good thing, sure, but at some point you wonder: "where's the beef?" I found myself nodding in agreement at the advice - there's nothing wrong with any of it - but next day I found it hard to remember much of what it said: a case of easy in/easy out. Tracy may be an excellent speaker, but as a writer he doesn't engage the brain sufficiently. There was nothing really new, provocative or profound here. ... Read more

    I am writing in from India. I have been interested in Systems thinking/ system dynamics for about a year since I read an interesting consulting engagement in Europe that received an award from Management Consultants International (MCI). It's difficult to find a book that shows you the how and why of systems dynamics and its history and relevancy.

    This book was an eye opener for applying systems theory outside of the usual electrical/mechanical engineering presentation.Should be required reading for anyone considering business consulting.One of my personal challenges had been how to use the tools from systems theory appropriately in a business framework and this text provides ample guidance.

    5-0 out of 5 stars What every woman should know!
    I read about this book - actually, I consider it a textbook - when searching for tools on expanding my career. I usually wouldn't buy something like this, and instead look for similar information from free 'Net sources. But on a whim, I bought it, and am so glad I did. I'm not even halfway through and what I've learned already has helped me to speak and express myself in a way that gets people's attention, and has improved my professional image. One of the best tips, which comes early in the book, is catching myself using the "I think/like/don't like" phrase when I want to discuss facts. I do it, so I don't look like a know-it-all. Dr. Mindell, however, shows several ways to express facts without appearing as though I have all the answers.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Review by the Business Librarians of the Carnegie Library, Pittsburgh
    The lights go down. The speaker strides confidently towards the podium, pauses and makes eye contact with the audience. And from the very first moment you know, instinctively, that it's going to be an excellent presentation. An experience like this reinforces your desire to create your own unique aura of self-confidence. What can you do to make this happen?
    3-0 out of 5 stars Not Helpful
    I bought this book at a womens' leadership conference a couple of years ago.I read it cover-to-cover and decided to try the skills covered when communicating in my office.My supervisors' opinions of me changed drastically - they began to view me as surly and defiant.I didn't think any of the verbage alternatives were rude, but in the organization where I was working, the higher-ups expected you to consider them omnipotent and not have an opinion of your own.Ultimately one should consider their audience and adjust their language accordingly. ...

    This second edition of Administrative Assistant's And Secretary's Handbook has been completely revised with 10 new chapters to cover netiquette, Internet security ,office ergonomics and other modern-day concerns of secretaries and office personnel.

    This is a book written in 1995 and yet there is a whole chapter on DOS and other outdated technology.No office still uses DOS!With the ever changing technology in today's world, the author would have been so much better off skipping that whole chapter.Letter formats and telephone etiquette will still apply ten years from now, but when talking of computers; today's newest is tomorrow's obsolete.So get this book for general office information but not to become computer savvy or to learn of the software businesses are now using. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars THE VI reference
    This book is the reference for those wanting to understand the mysteries of Vi. Almost all Unix based systems typically have a variant of the Vi editor installed, even when the system is in a limited use state, therefore an understanding of this no-nonsense editor is crucial if you want to administer or recover your system. This makes the Vi the editor to know, and this book guides you through the basics to more advanced "tricks" used by the guru's. Even if you only plan on casually using Vi, you can't lose having this book in your library. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Second career?
    My daughter works with horses, makes very good money, but only works 20 hours a week. She was considering taking medical transcriptionist courses.I bought this book to give her a real taste of what the courses would be like. It would be a good additional career if she could work it around the horse training she loves and excels at.This book is perfect for anyone considering a medical transcriptionist career. I gives you a very clear idea what is involved in beginning transcription.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Very pleased.
    This is the textbook I used in my Beginning Medical Transcription course and I found it to be very helpful.Audio cassette tapes were given out from the teacher with model operative, autopsy, H & P, cytology, and consultation reports that coincided with the lessons in the book. The terminology that was in each chapter was used frequently in the reports to assimilate the student with typing the words, as well as being able to hear it pronounced in different ways.It gave a background lesson in basic terminology, including suffixes and root words.I thought that this book helped me in great ways. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Delivers
    Unbelievable that no one taught me these principles years ago. This guy has been around a long time! Excellent, easy to read and incorporate.

    3-0 out of 5 stars speaking like churchill
    This is an excellent book for speakers os any level who wish to make small yet noticeable improvements to their speaking performance. Churchill and Lincoln both mastered the skills necessary to be great speakers. The greatest secret that I took from this book is the power of the ..... PAUSE. To stand in front of a group of people saying nothing , with poise and confidence , is a skill the truly seperates great speakers from the rest.
    4-0 out of 5 stars worthwhile reading
    Good book. Nevertheless the author could make it better by cutting off some of the quotes that here and there become excessive in number and extension. This is particularly true for the chapters "power wit", "power poetry" and "power line". They are tiresome -- even boring -- when prolonged beyond the necessary. This only proves that you can have too much a good thing. When it happens good becomes less good and enticing becomes exhausting.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Shame on Norton! Listen to MLK "I have a dream" while reading this book
    The text they have in the first edition of this book for the "I have a dream" speech so deviates from the actual speech, it leads you to wonder two things: a) what kind of crappy editors are reviewing this stuff? and b) if the MLK speech is so screwed up, can you trust the text they provide of the older speeches that you cannot verify by listening to recordings?
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Resource
    It is so difficult to do justice to a book about great speeches. By definition, the content should be good - even great, which is partly why this book is such a rich treasure. The other reason why Lend Me Your Ears is such a useful resource is the commentary provided by editor William Safire.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A classic work made up of classic works
    Aside from the great speeches ( two hundred of them ) that constitute this volume and are its heart, there is also the informative introductory commentary of William Safire.This commentary serves not only as guide to each particular speech, but in general terms as a kind of extended essay on the art of speechmaking. And Safire makes it clear throughout that he views speechmaking as an art.
