THE TWENTY BUSHEL RACER, AND OTHER STORIES. DESCRIPTION Barry Pearson's short story collection casts its spell across a wide reach of life: A boy deceives his embittered father, but a magnificent horse helps to heal the rift. A small-town teenager discovers the importance of his attachment to the people and the place where he is growing up. A man, who has for years considered himself a coward and a betrayer of his comrades, musters the courage to stand up against a pair of would-be assassins. Two young men who grew up in the same town meet unexpectedly, and unveil a truth about a girl they both loved when they were boys. The discovery changes both their lives. * THE TWENTY BUSHEL RACER Thirteen year-old Shawn O'Neill dreams of being a jockey in the races at the county fair. Without his father's permission, he purchases an injured racing horse with his 20-bushel share of the crop, and triggers a chain of events that will pit him against his father's determination to sell the horse. * A PLACE TO BELONG In a small prairie town, teenager Might Dobson and three friends come of age one icy winter night. They find magic everywhere they look-in the Smile Cafe, over a jug of wine, on the slippery streets, and in the way they stick with each other. * A MAN IS NOT ALWAYS Peter Donohue, a prairie farmer, lives a tranquil life with his wife, Helen, until his youthful past catches up to him. Two IRA terrorists, seeking vengeance, arrive with intent to kill him and his wife. * SHARP CORNERS The lingering angst of poignant young love surfaces when 30 year-old Might Dobson unexpectedly meets a man from his home town who was once a rival for the love of a spirited, but doomed young girl who broke both their hearts. A revelation sparks a decision that will change Might's life.

You can either fluff it, or make sure you get the best possible advisor and become financially secure for life, and possibly very rich. This work presents trade secrets that people just don't know. Barrie writes: 'This book distils over 30 years of my deal making, both as a principal and a corporate finance adviser, to reveal the trade secrets people are unaware of because these are simply neither talked nor written about.' The whole book is laced with proven tactical advice, because tactics determine whether there will be a deal or not. The reality is that tactical mistakes lose deals which should have been won; an unforgivable failure.' It presents street-wise tactics from a Master Deal-maker. As a business owner or group executive, you will learn all about: how to identify the right buyer - 15 questions to ask if you receive an unsolicited offer; what buyers really want - and want to avoid; how to time the deal - get this right and you can't fail; the techniques of financial grooming to maximise your company's value - the 7 key techniques; how to spot with potential deal-breakers at the start; how to disclose unattractive features positively; driving the deal to suit your time-table; how to get your retaliation in first to avoid last-minute chisellers; how to achieve the best possible price; and how to steer the deal to success and a maximum return. And you will also discover how choose and use your professional advisers effectively, their role and benefits, the risks involved and fees. Did you know, this report has CPD hours accredited to it!
