A novel about Loss, Search and the Secret of the Universe
GAVRIEL is a nomad; a perpetual traveller living sparingly among the rest of the budget tourists who crowd the railway stations and dilapidated lodges of Southeast Asia.
But Gavriel is not just that. He carries a notebook of illegible handwriting and a cryptic list of names; he follows clues that only he can decipher using intuition, reason and divine signals in a Search to reveal the very last secret of the universe.
From the jungle-nested temples of Cambodia to the grasslands of the Tibetan plateau and the islands of Japan, the Man Under Contract, as Gavriel would later be known to the parties involved in his story and to those deceased he leaves in his wake, searches for a woman named Maya and the mystery of the godlike entity who took her away.
World Wide Data:
The Future of Digital Marketing, E-Commerce, and Big Data
The world is currently in the midst of a data revolution. Consumers now inhabit a digital world and companies have no option but to follow them there. Governments are reviewing the rules of usage for consumer data in marketing and advertising in order to take advantage of the huge economic opportunity that the data driven economy represents.
Companies, recognizing the opportunity, are hurrying to adapt by digitalizing their processes. They are putting pressure on their managers and working teams to learn how to make best use of the technology capabilities and their data resources. What is more, premier national companies have to compete in a global business field where their Silicon Valley-breed competitors have a substantial advantage in terms of digitalization and data usage.
Written in plain English with illustrative examples and cases, this book is for the general manager who seeks a better grasp of this fast-changing business world and a better understanding of what will be required from he/she, not just now but in five years’ time.

Chief Kickboxing Officer:
Applying the Fight Mentality to Business Success
Chief Kickboxing Officer is not a book about fighting your way to the top of the corporate ladder. It’s about applying the visceral, tactical lessons of martial artistry to the way we think and the way we interact with people. –Jonathan Clements, author of A Brief History of the Martial Arts and The Art of War: A New Translation
Business and fighting are two sides of the same coin.
Every businessperson engages everyday in small acts of negotiation and conflict; understanding what characterizes our conduct, and what are its strengths and weakness, will help us develop more effective relationships.
Chief Kickboxing Officer shows how the fighting and business mind sets cross over in this process of discovery and, in particular, what lessons can be learned from a highly refined and scientific type of fighting system: the martial arts. By looking at four types of behavioral and leadership styles and map ping each of them onto a martial art, this book allows the readers to learn lessons best suited to their personality.
‧ Formal and proactive types that align with the martial art of karate.
‧ Formal and responsive types that align with the martial art of judo.
‧ Informal and proactive types that align with the martial art of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).
‧ Informal and responsive types that align with the martial art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ).
