    This ground-breaking work offers access to the boardroom, and advice on getting noticed, networking, persuasion and mastering the art of quid pro quo. A professor of management and highly sought-after consultant, Kathleen Kelley Reardon has worked with many of the nation's leading corporations. Drawing on interviews with executives from Fortune 500 companies, she has compiled essential advice on how to break into the inner circle of power at the top of the corporate ladder. Many books cover practical business knowledge, but few address the issue of interpersonal skills. The ever-changing circle of power within a corporation may not necessarily follow the same guidelines it publicly professes. The most talented employee isn't always the one promoted; there is an intangible quality the upper echelon look for. It may not come naturally, but it can be learned. Kathleen Kelley Reardon's guide to organizational politics gives you the navigational skills needed to reach the top. Narrator Ruth Ann Phimister will leave you feeling as if you've had an enlightning conversation with a caring mentor.

    A New York Times Notable Book of the Year, The Devil's Dream is an animated, lyrical novel that is meant to be savored as spoken word. Consummate storyteller Lee Smith's creation will delight anyone who enjoys the sound of language and a good story. Preacher's son Moses Bailey believed that the fiddle was the voice of the Devil and denied his wife the pleasure of the music she dearly loved. She fiddled for her three children behind her husband's back. Thus begins a magnificent 150-year saga of a musical Southern family featuring barn dances, medicine shows, the Grand Ole Opry, and the evolution of country music from hymns to rockabilly. Generations of authentic, down-home mountain people spring to life, colorful dialects and all, through the magic of several extraordinary narrators. Each chapter, a story in itself, will move listeners with its passion, emotion, warmth, and intimacy.
