'[W]hen a vacation is ruined by a hotel's negligence, or that expensive suit comes apart at the seams, or the new car spends more time in the repair shop than on the road, it's time to take the offensive and get results. Intelligent, aggressive and realistic, yet humorously written, Consumer Terrorism leads readers through the most effective ways to present their cases. It explains who to contact, the right and wrong way to complain and what to expect in return. The no-holds-barred approach is unique, cleverly blending the use of formal avenues of consumer complaint resolution with guerrilla tactics sure to get results. So get mad -- then get action!'--from the publisher.

5 The Value Effect: A Murder Mystery about the Compulsive Pursuit of 'The Next Big Thing' Guaspari, John
Very Good. 
Hardcover. Stated 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 2000 Berrett-Koehler. Superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. Only light wear. 'Someone is killing the entrepreneurial spirit of American businesses. Perpetually searching for The Next Big Thing, workers have overlooked the Value Effect, which can provide the alignment and energy needed to create and sustain change. John Guaspari ingeniously lays out the problem as a murder mystery. Part I describes the ailing Lodestar, Inc. and its executives who meet to plan new strategies. When the consultant who introduced last year's successful Next Big Thing -- the Value Effect -- suddenly turns up dead, detective Leonard Gatling investigates. Part II analyzes the evidence of the Value Effect. The mystery is solved when everyone finally understands that the Value Effect is not really a Next Big Thing at all but a surprisingly straightforward solution to a persistent problem.'--from the publisher.

Tips for Time Travelers, Cochrane, Peter
7 Tips for Time Travelers Cochrane, Peter
Very Good. 
Hardcover. Hardcover with dustjacket 1999 McGraw-Hill. SIGNED BY AUTHOR on title page. Superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. Only light wear. 225pp, Index. Language: English. 'Futuristic technologies (which frighten most people) are a delight to Peter Cochrane, an internatinal speaker with Business Week's Executive Programs, and head of Research at British Telecommunications. Human cloning, identification chips implanted under the skin, digitally enhanced brains, and machines that can think--these are things which he not only believes will occur in the near future; Cochrane actually embraces these scary, science-fiction notions as natural extensions of human development. While he remains an unbashed optimist about the future of technology, he is fully cognizant about the jarring nature of rapid technological change, both to individuals and to societies. As little as 30 years ago, he points out, an individual would meet and communicate with only 3,000 people in their lifetime. Now, we can do so in a matter of weeks or days.'--from the publisher.

Vendetta: American Express and the Smearing of Edmond Safra, Burrough, Bryan
9 Vendetta: American Express and the Smearing of Edmond Safra Burrough, Bryan
New. 
Hardcover. Brand-new, stated 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1992 HarperCollins. Superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight; never read. Gift-giving condition. 494pp, Index, Notes, B/W photos. Language: English. NOTE: Cannot ship outside U.S. via Global Priority--Surface or Airmail only. 'When the 1983 merger between the American Express Bank and Edmond Safra's Trade and Development Bank failed, Safra reestablished himself with an independent banking concern that would compete directly with American Express. Burrough, coauthor of Barbarians at the Gate, tells of an ill-founded and vindictive attempt by individuals hired by American Express to discredit Safra in the media. Though the incident was mentioned in Jon Friedman's House of Cards, Burrough's insight into the culture clash between the parties gives fascinating dimension to a story that spans almost a decade and involves unsavory players in the affairs of a multinational corporation. For both lay readers and specialists.'--Joseph Barth, Library Journal, 1992.
