The Glorious Ones travel the length and breadth of seventeenth-century Italy, playing commedia dell´arte in the streets and palaces with equal vigor. Founded by the ingenious madman Flamino Scala, the small company of players endures kidnappings and passionate affairs, cabals, riots, and disgrace - all manner of triumph and hardship. Pantalone the miser, sunny Armanda the dwarf, gossip-loving Columbina, and evil-minded Brighella, view their myriad shared adventures through markedly different eyes. Yet not one of them is prepared for the strange twisting of the road brought about by the mysterious arrival of Isabella Andreini, who has come to direct their wayward troupe. 1. Language: English.

Your success in business depends on how well you think. Six Thinking Hats can help you think better, with its practical and uniquely positive approach to making decisions and exploring new ideas. It is an approach that thousands of business managers, educators, and government leaders around the world have already adopted with great success. ´´The main difficulty of thinking is confusion,´´ writes Edward de Bono, long recognized as the foremost international authority on conceptual thinking and on the teaching of thinking as a skill. ´´We try to do too much at once. Emotions, information, logic, hope, and creativity all crowd in on us. It is like juggling with too many balls.´´ The solution? De Bono unscrambles the thinking process with his ´´six thinking hats´´: White hat: neutral and objective, concerned with facts and figures Red hat: the emotional view Black hat: careful and cautious, the devil´s advocate hat Yellow hat: sunny and positive Green hat: associated with fertile growth, creativity, and new ideas Blue hat: cool, the color of the sky, above everything else - the organizing hat Through case studies and real-life examples, Dr. de Bono reveals the often surprising ways in which deliberate role-playing can make you a better thinker. He offers a powerfully simple tool that you - and your business, whether it´s a start-up or a major corporation - can use to create a climate of clearer thinking, improved communication, and greater creativity. His book is an instructive and inspiring text for anyone who makes decisions in business or in life. Please note: This audiobook is in Russian. 1. Russian.
