Hard times by Charles Dickens( Book )

10 editions published between 1964 and 2004 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The proprietor of an experimental private school in an English manufacturing town, Thomas Gradgrind, a fanatic of the demonstrable fact, has raised his children Tom and Louisa in an atmosphere of grimmest practicality. Louisa marries the banker Josiah Bounderby partly to protect her brother who is in Bounderby's employ, partly because her education has resulted in an emotional atrophy that makes her indifferent to her fate. Tom, shallow and unscrupulous, robs Bounderby's bank and contrives to frame Stephen Blackpool, an honest and long-suffering mill hand. Meanwhile, Louisa's dormant emotions begin to awaken, stimulated by disgust for the vulgar Bounderby, and the attentions of the charming, amoral James Harthouse. When she runs away to her father and when Tom's guild is discovered, Gradgrind realizes how is principles have blighted his children's lives ... The novel is Dickens' harshest indictment of practices and philosophical justifications of mid-19th-century industrialism in England." Reader's Ency. 3d edition

The Nordstrom way : the inside story of America's # 1 customer service company by Robert Spector( Book )

2 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Coauthored by top Nordstrom salesman Patrick McCarthy and based on veteran journalist Robert Spector's exclusive, in-depth interviews with the Nordstrom family, senior executives, directors, and salespeople, The Nordstrom Way offers the first inside, uncensored book about this much admired - and much feared - retail powerhouse." "Working at Nordstrom is not for everyone. The authors describe a hotly competitive "Darwinian" culture where 35,000 employees are given freedom to either think and act like entrepreneurs or pass into extinction." "In the course of their analysis, the authors isolate practical lessons that readers can apply to both their professional and personal lives, including becoming "other-centered" rather than "self-centered," valuing the nobility of service, finding and bonding with customers, serving and keeping those customers, and giving frontline people the freedom to make decisions."--Jacket
