A satire that delves into many aspects of the political arena. When it became clear that President George W. Bush was intent on invading Iraq, and he found a close chum and obedient ally in Britain's former Prime Minister Tony Blair, what struck the author was the incongruity of their relationship. How could two people whose only similarity appeared to be their ability to see things that were not there, get on and understand one another so well? Mr. Blair, presumably to impress on us just how chummy they had become, kept saying they were "standing shoulder-to-shoulder", even when they were sitting opposite one another. Linehan was privileged to learn at first-hand what they talked about when they met and in their frequent telephone conversations. Also fortunate to be given an insight into how Mr. Blair reported their exchanges to his wife Cherie, it occurred to the author that notes published on what took place might throw some light on how they reached decisions by which we have all, to a greater or lesser extent, been affected.

Plane Talk: Cessna Export Tales is the story of the team of close friends in the Export Department of the Cessna Aircraft Company, Wichita Kansas as seen through the eyes of Eyvinn H. Schoenberg as he relates through forty tales and five epilogue histories, experiences of his own and those of his friends in exporting Cessnas worldwide. He describes his strict flight training in a Piper Cub, and the fun of flying Cessnas once authorized to be a Cessna Utility Pilot while learning to fly The Cessna Way, as well as his own and others adventures in flying, selling, and developing an internationally based Distributor and Dealer organization, whose sales of Cessnas in the Caribbean, South America, Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand, The Far East, Europe, The Middle East, and various African countries in great part caused Wichita Kansas to be called The Air Capitol of the World.

This is a guide for anyone who wants to connect better with people in the workplace by speaking clearly and with purpose. It is a result of five years at Charlie Corbett’s consultancy, Bullfinch Media, where he helped convince executives that speaking plainly, thoughtfully, and behaving with humanity, is the best way to win business, boost morale and advance careers. It provides carefully detailed wisdom on how to write well, speak publicly and stand out in your job, as well as how to craft compelling communications, make the best of social media and handle the press. The Art of Plain Speaking aims to improve the experience faced by many in the modern workplace, a world where senior management are entirely absent from the shop floor – replaced by indecipherable emails from HR – and where people speak in esoteric corporate riddles, believing that sounding clever is more productive than speaking clearly.

“Never has a President of the United States, or any head of state for that matter, been so totally revealed, so completely documented” (Robert A. Arthur). Plain Speaking is the bestselling book based on conversations between Merle Miller and the thirty-third President of the United States, Harry S. Truman. From these interviews, as well as others who knew him over the years, Miller transcribes Truman’s feisty takes on everything from his personal life, military service, and political career to the challenges he faced in taking the office during the final days of World War II and the beginning of the Cold War. Using a series of taped discussions from 1962 that never aired on television, Plain Speaking takes an opportunity to deliver exactly how Mr. Truman felt about the presidency, and his thoughts in his later years on his accomplishments and the legacy he left behind. “The values of Plain Speaking, on the whole, are those of the highest form of political communication: the bull session. As with all good bull sessions, what is said here ranges widely in quality and seriousness, as one should expect when dealing with a complex man.” —The New York Times “Plain Speaking has a nostalgic, downhome quality of good friends gossiping over the back fence, or saying their piece of a twilight eve rocking on the porch—and if those fellas back in Washington have their secret machines running, well, they won’t like what they overhear. Not one little bit.” —Kirkus Reviews
