Author: Susan Mitchell
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Using Susan's own experiences and those of the many self-determining people she has met and interviewed over the years, she eloquently explores what happens when people receive due acknowledgment - and what happens when they don't.Now, more than ever, in this post-September 11 world, we have a clear choice. Do we move forwards or backwards? Do we dare to have a bold vision of how we would like the world to be or a predictable plan for retribution? As voters we need to ask ourselves, who has the boldest vision for our future? Is it a bold vision of light and moving forward or is it a vision of darkness and destruction and moving back to where we were before September 11, 2001?
More than ever before business success depends on standing out from the crowd and delivering authentic experiences that turn your customers into advocates for your business. BOLD tells the stories of 14 companies that prove that brand building is now about completely rethinking the customer experience and redefining the relationship you have with your customers. Each inspiring story is told by the executives involved who were brave enough to pursue audacious goals, challenge industry norms and win. Winner of the E-book category of the CMI Management Book of the Year Awards (2011/12), BOLD puts the spotlight on Virgin Galactic, Innocent, O2, Air Asia X, Chilli Beans, Six Senses Resorts and Spas, Burberry, BBH, The Geek Squad, TNT Express, JCB, WWF, Umpqua Bank and Zappos.com. These inspiring case studies demonstrate that putting purpose before profit, going way beyond what customers expect and relentlessly differentiating themselves from everyone else - in other words, being bold in thought, bold in execution and bold in measuring their success in new ways - pays off.

Though critics and literary historians have always had to admit that Susanna Centlivre’s comedies were extremely popular, they have tended to devote themselves to a search for evidence in them of supposed deficiencies of ‘the female pen,’ and to pay as much attention to the playwright’s marriages and amorous liasons than to the plays themselves. Only in recent years has Centlivre come to be recognized quite straightforwardly as one of the most brilliant playwrights of her time. A Bold Stroke for a Wife is perhaps the finest example of Centlivre’s masterful plotting of comic intrigue. The soldier Fainwell and Anne Lovely are in love, but their path to the altar is blocked by her guardians, each of whom has a different view of what sort of husband would make the right match. Fainwell resorts to disguises of social types. The play thus provides a wide range of opportunity for Centlivre to satirize Tory respectability, religious propriety and capitalist speculative greed—and to give voice to tolerance: ‘tis liberty of choice that sweetens life.’ Yet in the end it is Centlivre’s comic muse that gives enduring life to the play as one of the most entertaining of eighteenth-century comedies.

This is a definitive study of Charles the Bold's diplomatic and military relations with the Italian states, taking full account of economic policy. The book makes extensive use not only of the great mass of diplomatic correspondence in the archives of Florence, Mantua, Milan, Modena and Venice, but also of Charles' financial records in the archives of Brussels and Lille. The author's mastery of these primary sources is complemented by judicious use of a wide range of secondary material. Aspects of Charles the Bold's relations with Italy have been considered in earlier literature, but no study has before dealt with them comprehensively at any length. This book fills that gap and places Charles' reign in its wider European context.
