Ideas About the Novel by Ortega y Gasset - my translation $0.99


Next to Cervantes, Benito Perez Galdos is the most beloved Spanish writer of all times.

Torquemada at the Stake by Perez Galdos- my translation $0.99

Lazarillo of Tormes - my translation $0.99
Read it in contemporary English -- No Thous, Thees, or King James' Bible language. Transliterated into easy language for enjoyable reading pleasure. Because The Lazarillo of Tormes pointed a new direction, European and American literature benefited with titles that today are considered classics: Cervantes’ Rinconete and Cortadillo; Daniel Defoe’s Moll Flanders, Henry Fielding’s Tom Jones and Joseph Andrews; Tobias Smollett’s Roderick Random, and Peregrine Pickle; Voltaire’s Candide; Charles Dickens’ David Copperfield. And many others to include American works ranging from Mark Twain to Saul Bellow.

Dehumanization of Art by Ortega y Gasset - my translation $0.99
The Dehumanization of Art— is now a constant in music, literature, aesthetics, and philosophy, having come to mean that in post-modern times human-shaped mimesis (representation of the human) is irrelevant to art. According to Ortega, the arts don't have to tell a human story; art should deal with its own forms—and not with the human form.

How writers open their sentences makes prose agile, interesting, and athletic. This e-book teaches how to break the pattern Subject-verb-object--and discard openings that begin with nouns, articles, and pronouns.

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.

Making Proper Introductions

Female symbol. Created by Gustavb.Image via Wikipedia

Though less rigid than the past; introductions should never be overlooked, whether it be a friend or your boss. Why are introductions so important in business or social settings? Introductions not only make others feel comfortable and at ease but establish a relationship between you and the person you are introducing (how do you know this person).

Making proper introductions in the business world require learning one basic rule and following a few guidelines. Practicing this basic rule and following these guidelines, when you have an opportunity will help sharpen your skill of making introductions. As a reward for your persistent practice you will feel more at ease and appear more polished in all situations.

Traditionally, in social situations gender determines who is introduced to whom, “the man is introduced to the woman, “Bridget Lee, may I introduce James Tilley”. The man’s name is mentioned last because the lady is receiving the man. In a business setting, rank and not gender determines “who is introduced to whom”. The senior ranking person receives the junior ranking person. The lesser ranking person is introduced to the senior ranking person. The senior ranking person’s name is stated first: “Mr. President, this is Donna Smith, our Human Resources Manager.” The highest ranking person, (whether female or male, young or mature) is mentioned first. Guidelines for determining Importance

—-Senior Executive to Junior Executive (example above).

—-Your Boss to a client. Your client is always more important. “Mr. Client, I’d like to introduce, the president of your company, Eric Burhenn.”

—-Governing Official to a citizen. Mayor, may I introduce Mr. Joe citizen.

—-Two persons with the same rank. Introduce the person you are less acquainted with to the one you are more acquainted. Ex. Jean Keller (works with you) and Greg Byers (Huntsville’s office) are senior Executives. Your introduction will go something like this: “Jean Keller, I’d like to introduce Greg Byers. Greg is Senior Executive in our Huntsville’s office.”

—-Introduce a younger person to a more mature (older) person. “Mrs. Fifty, I’d like to introduce Mrs. Forty.” (Social setting) “Ms. five years co-worker, I’d like to introduce Mr. two years co-worker.” ---Introduce a co-worker to a client or a worker from another company: Client, I’d like to introduce Ms. Co-worker. “Client, I’d like to introduce Ms. Co-worker.”

—-Introduce a party guest to the guest of honor. “Mr. Guest of Honor, may I introduce Mr. Party Guest”. Making introductions can be tricky. If you learn one basic rule and few other guidelines you can introduce anyone in any social and/or business settings: Rank determines who is introduced to whom in a business setting, you are well on your way to increasing your confidence and making others feel at ease. Introducing others not only help others get to know one another but it also make others feel at ease.
