China's economy, despite recently weathered challenges, continues to prove attractive to foreign investors, expanding businesses, and entrepreneurs seeking global opportunities. This handbook has been written for anyone with an interest in doing business in China, including the consultants and specialists who work with global companies, but it is far more than an introduction to the Chinese market. Combining a deep knowledge of Chinese culture with her recent experience and continuing work with managers who do business in this sleeping economic superpower, the author brings out the nuances in everything she writes about, e.g., the distinctions among Chinese in income, target market, and geographic region. She demonstrates how Western notions of market segmentation, for example, may be fatally flawed when applied indiscriminately to the same demographically selected categories of Chinese consumers. Investing in China is not some "get rich quick" scheme. Only those who take the time to fully and thoroughly understand the Chinese market, and how that market is likely to interact with their products or services, will demonstrate the patience necessary to achieve success.

Publisher: Pearson; 2 edition (June 20, 2003) | ISBN: 0201383896 | Pages: 912 | PDF | 14.7 MB

This text, which grew out of a NSF grant, takes a fresh approach with a focus on the underlying concepts of precalculus, rather than sheer algebraic manipulation. It effectively prepares students for a new generation of calculus courses and allows instructors to become actively involved in the teaching process. The authors make extensive use of real world applications, showing students how mathematics relates to their field of study, as well as including a thorough integration of technology. Additionally, the authors have incorporated a number of learning features designed to ready students for a more positive calculus experience.

Publisher: Thames & Hudson (October 17, 2007) | ISBN: 0500238375 | Pages: 496 | PDF | 6.22 MB

With remarkable clarity, Julian Bell tells the story of how art has evolved through the millennia and across the world. He follows the changing trends in the making and significance of art in different cultures, and explains why the art of the day looked and functioned as it did. Key images and objects-some of them familiar works of art; others, less known but equally crucial to the story-act as landmarks on the journey, focal points around which the discussion always centers. Along the way, Bell answers fundamental questions such as "What is art and where does it start?" and "Why do humans make it and how does it serve them?"

Genre: Design

Alan Holub takes coders deep into the reality of Gang-of-Four design patterns, those reusable guides to common object-oriented design problems. He deconstructs two significant software programs (Mel Conway's "Game of Life" and a SQL interpreter) to demonstrate how design patterns work and interact in complex ways, share classes with other patterns, and have pros and cons. Each of the three primary design pattern categories, creational, structural, and behavioral are discussed and illustrated.
