Omslagtitel: The lost college & other Oxford stories. Bundel korte verhalen die zich in heden en verleden afspelen in en rond Oxford, The grumpy troll who lives under the bridge refuses to let anyone cross. Can the three Billy Goats Gruff help this bully change his mind? For twenty years, Moe Prager, retired NYPD officer and PI, was haunted by the secret that eventually destroyed his family. Now, two years after the fallout from the truth, more than secrets are haunting the Pragers. When a family burial site is desecrated and a grave left empty, Moe follows a trail from cemetery to cemetery, from ashes to ashes and back again. Title from container.

The key to success in both life and work, Ferrazzi convincingly argues, is building solid relationships. But what distinguishes Ferrazzi's approach from other networking strategies is the emphasis on helping others so they might help you. It's not enough to ask a favor when you need one. To build meaningful relationships that will be mutually beneficial, you must maintain constant contact with the friends and associates who matter to you. 1. Preface; 2.
