A Room Called Remember brings together some of Buechner's finest writings on faith, love, and the power of words in the form of essays, addresses, and sermons. Here Buechner explores autobiography as theology, offers exhilarating reflections on biblical passages, and leads us into the "room called Remember," that "still room within us all where the past lives on as part of the present,...where with patience, with clarity, with quietness of heart, we remember consciously to remember the lives we have lived."

Cold Calling Is Like a Colonoscopy without the Drugs How You Can Find New Business with Courage Cold Calling and a Few Less Invasive TechniquesCold Calling Is Like a Colonoscopy without the Drugs How You Can Find New Business with Courage Cold Calling and a Few Less Invasive Techniques

I can't hold a candle to the likes of Benjamin Levy and Harry Lorayne and remember 300 names in a room. I just remember the ones I call on during the programs – maybe 2030 attendees. Like you I have to work at it.

Cold calling, like a colonoscopy, is a pain in the butt. You may not like the process, but they can both save your ass. My objective with this book is direct: to help you find new business by getting you in front of the people who can buy. What you’ll get from this book is what you can’t get from anywhere else: my perspective. You’ll learn what I’ve learned up until now. It just won’t take you a lifetime to learn it like it did me. Part one of this book is about the mental game of cold calling: how to get the courage to deal with your fears to do whatever it takes to get in front of buyers. Part two includes specific strategies and techniques to get there. And not all have anything to do with cold calling as you know it.

Sweeping, humorous, and moving tales from one of contemporary China’s greatest writers. The bestselling and award-winning author of novels satirizing contemporary China, Liu Zhenyun is also renowned for his short stories. Remembering 1942 showcases six of his best, featuring a diverse cast of ordinary people struggling against the obstacles—bureaucratic, economic, and personal—that life presents. The six exquisite stories that comprise this collection range from an exploration of office politics unmoored by an unexpected gift to the tale of a young soldier attempting to acclimate to his new life as a student and the story of a couple struggling to manage the demands of a young child. Another, about petty functionaries trying to solve a mystery of office intrigue, reads like a survival manual for Chinese bureaucracy. The masterful title story explores the legacy of the drought and famine that struck Henan Province in 1942, tracing its echoes in one man’s personal journey through war and revolution and into the present. Each story is rich in wit, insight, and empathy, and together they bring into focus the realities of China’s past and present, evoking clearly and mordantly the often Kafkaesque circumstances of contemporary life in the world’s most populous nation. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction—novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
