East of Tiffany's - bestseller $5
With the city as its backdrop "East of Tiffany's" is filled with earnest tales of love, loss, faith, success and morality. While business terminology is interwoven throughout these short stories, it's not business lessons that I take away with me, but life lessons. The circumstances and the characters' profound humanity are relatable despite their zip code . "Luke, Postmodern Man" offers a new vista into faith, suffering, and love of neighbor. Way after you read this book you'll find yourself thinking about the various characters throughout the series of stories and will find solace in their unwavering faith. The narrators' ability to reflect on their hardships with such serenity is inspiring.

I find the question makes the lesson better to understand. It is a revision.

Being familiar with the lingo of accounting is a stepping stone to understanding the more intricate concepts of this theorem.

Having all these completely new ideas crammed into my head all at once may seem overwhelming, but the basic concepts are explained here in a manner that is organized and much easier to digest.

We are extremely, lucky to be in a class where there is continuous reinforcement of the material because the teaching is done by asking not by telling. The professor is knowledgeable and articulate, yet simplistic in his delivery.
