In How to Become an Excellent Server: Earn a Tip Above 20% Every Time, Daniel Lysak provides an entertaining yet informative guide for success in the often challenging world of restaurants. More than just a "how-to" book, it is filled with real life examples and amusing anecdotes. The author applies his research of psychology and people to the ultimate “people job”: waiting tables. Being a server can be a thankless and often humiliating way to earn money, but Daniel Lysak "turns the tables" and puts the server in charge by focusing on personal interaction. The book first takes a deep dive analysis of how a server's relationship with managers, restaurant hosts, bartenders, and fellow servers is crucial to success. Then, the book examines the most important relationship of all: that with the customer. By illustrating the uniqueness of each table, the book provides a framework for working the room - and ultimately earning oversized tips every time. Over one night, increasing the average tip from 15% to well over 20%, a server's income is substantially improved. Daniel Lysak explains how to make it a game, win the game, and enjoy people - peers and customers - at the same time.<br /><br />"Daniel Lysak’s book is a must-read for all in the hospitality industry, from the kitchen staff to the servers to the top management. My extensive experience in all levels of the restaurant business in America, Italy, and South America tells me that Daniel is 100% right! Use his advice to score 20% (and much more) in tips. Beyond that, use his strategies to get ahead with your boss, your peers, and your clients. Read and reap the rewards."<br /><br />Matteo Russoniello<br />General Manager, Il Canale<br />Georgetown, Washington DC<br /><br />“When I first met Daniel in my office, I knew in a moment I had in front of me an extraordinarily talented young man with big dreams and a contagious enthusiasm. 
Beyond inspiring, his fearless and eager disposition reflects his roots and the essence of Italian hospitality. Daniel’s “opera prima” is a must-read primer for anyone considering the first step toward a successful career in this industry.” <br /><br />Franco Nuschese <br />President, Georgetown Entertainment Group<br />Owner, Cafe Milano<br /><br />

Candide est un jeune garçon vivant au château du baron de Thunder-ten-tronckh qui se trouve en Westphalien. Il a pour maître Pangloss, philosophe qui enseigne la «métaphysico-théologo-cosmolonigologie», et qui professait, à l'instar de Leibniz, que l'on vit dans le meilleur des mondes possibles. Candide est chassé de ce meilleur des mondes possibles à la suite d'un baiser interdit échangé avec Cunégonde, la fille du Baron. Candide découvre alors le monde, et va de déconvenue en déconvenue sur les chemins d'un long voyage initiatique.<br />Der einfach gestrickte Held Candide, der illegitime Neffe des westfälischen Barons Thunder-ten-tronckh, wird aus dem westfälischen Heimatschloss verbannt, nachdem er mit der traumhaft schönen Prinzessin Cunégonde in flagranti ertappt worden ist. Die Vertreibung gerät ihm zur Verstoßung aus jenem Paradies, in dem ihm sein Lehrer Pangloss die Leibnizsche Theorie der „besten aller Welten“ versucht näherzubringen. Auf der anschließenden Reise wird die Theorie des Optimismus zusehends ad absurdum geführt. Denn was ihm auf der Reise quer durch Europa und nach Übersee widerfährt, ist durch eine Kette zufälliger Unglücke, Katastrophen und unwahrscheinlicher Rettungen gekennzeichnet, die ihn an die entlegensten Orte der Welt führen.

"The protagonist of the book - the great Timur, shows a person of his age and of his destiny. He was by nature richly endowed, but a hard life in his younger years strengthened his talent, tempered will and made him able to courageously confront life adversity, and stronger opponents. Historical figures of this magnitude, it is fundamentally impossible to give a clear assessment that would satisfy everyone in equal measure, and in this sense, the portrait of Tamerlane, are recreated in Jo Lipovsky will take a worthy place in the gallery of existing portraits - the Doctor of historical Sciences Margarita Albedil

Empathy, critical thinking, good decision-making and cultural awareness are needed to keep our public-behavior-wheels turning smoothly. Without it, daily life will continue to be a mine-field where people stumble culturally-- creating the impression that they are ‘culturally clueless’. <br /> <br /> The authors of "The Don't Get Me Started! Toolkit Strategies for a Culturally-Challenged World" share their toolkit of skills for middle and high school students. After finishing this workbook, students will be able to use these effective communication skills to better assess and respond to the many challenging situations they may encounter in this rapidly changing world.<br /><br /> So whether they are playing games online, using a ‘gender-free’ restroom, sharing a picture on Facebook, conversing with friends in a café, applying in person for a new job or hosting an intergenerational event – they will be able to determine how the rules have changed and act in a manner that assures more successful outcomes.<br /><br /> Being ‘culturally-clueless’ may not land them in jail…but it could very well make students less competitive in the job marketplace, less admired among their peers and less respected within their families.<br /><br />This version includes a teacher's answer key.

Hailed as stimulus for the next generation of scientists by Scientific Computing, each volume in the highly acclaimed Manga Guide series teaches complex math and science topics with the aid of authentic Japanese manga comics. The latest in the series, <i>The Manga Guide to Microprocessors</i>, tackles microprocessors (the brain inside all computers), binary, microprocessor architecture, digital operations, even basic, low-level programming. <br /><br />But don’t take the comic book format of these books for granted. While full of comics, like all books in the Manga Guide series <i>The Manga Guide to Microprocessors</i> is serious business. With the aid of a comic story starring Ayumi Katsuragi in her quest to understand her game-playing computer opponent, readers will learn the basics of computers and digital logic. College-level topics like how the CPU processes information and makes decisions; how to make sense of binary; what logic gates are and how they can be combined to make functioning machines; how circuits are used to perform arithmetic or to remember information; memory and interrupts; how data passes through the bus; the type and nature of digital operations; even a bit of assembly and and other programming languages. <br /><br /><i>The Manga Guide to Microprocessors</i> assumes no prior knowledge of microprocessors, making it perfect for beginners, computer science students, or simply the computer-afficionado who wants a deeper understanding of the inner workings of microprocessors.
