Download or read book Financial Straight Talk written by Dee Mosier and published by AuthorHouse. This book was released on 2010-09-07 with total page 180 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Your #1 goal should be to have money for retirement. We all want the finer things in life; we are a society obsessed with instant gratification. However, all of your decisions (the financial ones, at least) should be primarily based on both your future and your retirement. With this as an overall theme, this book will walk you down the road to retirement, providing you with options and choices that are most appropriate for your particular situation. No one said the road would be easy, but do not worry, we will face those speed bumps head on, and we will do it together. The best time to start planning for retirement is now! A significant change in the last 20 years is the position of global investments. In 1990, 75 percent of investment opportunities were in the United States and 25 percent in other places around the world. Currently, it is almost the opposite with about 75 percent of the opportunities outside the United States. The U.S. is still the #1 financial leader in the world. Japan is #2. In 2010, China overtook Germany to become #3. We need to recognize that other countries are maturing and we want to make sure you have considered all investment opportunities that exist. By the end of this book, you will be comfortable enough to make your own decisions regarding your investments. If you are not, it will allow you to be comfortable asking any financial consultant the right questions. This book is about giving you new tools. So, we brought in Morningstar® to enable you to evaluate your options and introduced a global perspective to help you maximize potential returns. Think of it this way: if this were your favorite coffee blend (with all the right ingredients), you would want a refill.

As an author who has given new meaning to the word 'touch down' , he shows you how to 'touch her'. No subject is off-limits --- or out of bounds. So ladies, get ready to play ball!! Straight Talk: Volume One Playing For Keeps ***How To Love A Woman And Make Her Love You Back*** Round One - The Try-Outs In this first of two sizzling volumes, Wright gives raw tutorials on winning a woman's affections. In locker room voice former pro basketball player Gerry Wright answers all the questions that aspiring Casanovas are dying (but too proud) to ask. From what to wear, to how to smell, to how to equip the bachelor pad, Volume I gets a man to first base ---without striking out. Loaded with clever, hard-nosed information, Straight Talk elevates men from sitting on life's bleachers as all of the quality babes walk by to becoming an All-Star at love. Unlike books like Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, this two-book series deals with the real world, and gives the low down of what women really want --- in "guy talk"! Crammed with nuggets of practical information spiked with sporting terms, Playing For Keeps is savvy, sexy, and funny.

In the same no-holds-barred locker room style of Volume I, Wright explicitly coaches mankind on the sensual techniques to win over the opposite sex. Based on the shared experiences on different continents as Wright played basketball, he delivers the low down on the sexual "left hooks" and "curve balls" - that American women are dying for men to throw. More than a primer on body parts (and yes) oral sex the book also instructs men to listen to their partners. Perceptive, clever, and graphic --- Wright's instincts brand him as America's personal trainer at love. Wright's hand size (a full 11 1/4 inches spread) afforded him the ability to earn Sports Illustrated notoriety as a slam-dunk king. In two erotically raw volumes he gives tips that will have women in the palm of your hand (regardless of how many inches you're wielding). Wright's coaching a new team of men --- and, frankly fellows, she won't be trading you to another team after you read Wright's Straight Talk. Letter to Gerry Wright: Dear Mr. Wright, I went to a little book store called "Consider The Alternatives" on Thursday, April 19, looking for a book about relationships. I told Judy, the owner, that I have read many books to try to understand my man. And I couldn't seem to find one about women for men to read that wasn't just about sex. She called me at my home the very next day and left me a message that two books came in about the subject we were discussing and would I mind coming and taking them to read and review. I went to the store the very next day and read the cover letter, then the contents of the books. I immediately took them home to read. I am 2/3 through Volume 1 and I can't put it down. You must promote this book every where. Your book is heroic to all of us who have been criticized for saying the things you had the balls to say and say it straight. These two books must be marketed ASAP. Get
Download or read book Straight Talk written by Stéphane Dion and published by McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP. This book was released on 1999-11-19 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: So begins this collection of Stéphane Dion's speeches from 1996 to 1998. Organized around four central themes, Straight Talk shows the breadth and strength of Dion's convictions. Dion believes that Canada is first and foremost a nation of caring people, in contrast to the image projected by the endless, dry constitutional debate. He argues that the melding of diversity and unity that is the basis of this nation is possible only because of the particular federalism that Canadians have invented. This federalism, however, is far from perfect and it is the responsibility of government to continue to work to improve it, always remembering that its core must be the quality of service it provides to Canadians. Dion believes that the Quebec question is not a constitutional question but one that concerns identity: many francophones believe that their identity and culture are not respected in the rest of Canada and see the anglophone majority as a force for assimilation, while many in other provinces feel that separatists do not share the same values of openness and tolerance. He believes strongly that the secession process the Parti Québecois has proposed - effecting independence on the basis of incorrect legal theory, an unclear referendum question, and a majority of fifty percent plus one - is difficult to reconcile with democracy and raises questions that must be discussed openly and resolved democratically. Straight Talk is a refreshingly honest and frank discussion about a matter that has been at the forefront of Canadian's thoughts for too many years.

Download or read book Political Straight Talk written by H. John Lyke and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2016-02-25 with total page 354 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In writing the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, our Founding Fathers established a democratic republic with a solid political basis. What they wrote was the political map that future representatives would need to follow to conduct the people's business in an efficient and effective manner. As long as they faithfully carried out the people's will, our democracy and republic would function in a way congruent with our forebears' wishes. What in the world happened? H. John Lyke, a board-certified psychologist and professor emeritus at Metropolitan State College of Denver, and the author of multiple political psychology books, suggests that ever since George Washington retired as captain of our ship of state, subsequent presidents and members of Congress have failed to use the sailing chart of the Constitution. Instead, they've chosen to pursue their own and their political parties' self-interests. Lyke uses psychological principles to explore the reasons why our government has fallen so low, and in the voice of a kind but determined therapist, he offers simple and viable solutions to get us back to following our map.
