Jeffrey Hirsch discusses how to capture market-beating returns by following specific stock market cycles While predicting the direction of the stock market at any given point is difficult, it´s a fact that the market exhibits well-defined and sometimes predictable patterns. While cycles do not repeat exactly all of the time, statistical evidence suggests that cyclical tendencies are very strong and should not be ignored by investors. The Little Book of Stock Market Cycles will show you how to profit from these recurring stock market patterns and cycles. Written by Jeffrey Hirsch, President of the Hirsch Organization and Editor-in-Chief of the Stock Trader´s Almanac, this reliable resource explains why these cycles occur, provides the historical evidence behind them, and shows you how to capture consistent profits from them moving forward. In addition to describing his most widely followed cycles and patters, Hirsch also discusses both longer term boom-bust economic cycles and shorter term tendencies involving the best days, weeks, and months of the year to trade the market. >The methods found here follow everything from presidential election cycles to the ´´Santa Claus´´ effect Written by Jeffrey Hirsch, the pre-eminent authority on market cycles and seasonal patterns The strategies explored are easy-to-implement, and based on research that has proven profitable over the course of time For investors looking to beat the buy-and-hold philosophy, The Little Book of Stock Market Cycles will provide simple, actionable ideas that have stood the test of time and consistently outperformed the market. 1.

Writing situation comedies isn´t really that hard. So much of what you need to know is already defined for you. You know that your script needs to be a certain short length, with a certain small number of characters. You know that your choice of scenes is limited to your show´s standing sets and maybe one or two swing sets or outside locations. You know how your characters behave and how they´re funny, either because you invented them or because you´re writing for a show where these things are already well established. Sitcom is easy and sitcom is fun. Sitcom is the gateway drug to longer forms of writing. It´s a pretty good buzz and a pretty good ride, a great way to kill an afternoon, or even six months. And now, thanks to comedy writing guru John Vorhaus (author of The Comic Toolbox: How to Be Funny Even If You´re Not), writing situation comedy is easier than ever. In The Little Book of Sitcom, you´ll find a whole trove of tools, tricks, and problem-solving techniques that you can use - now, today - to be the sitcom writer of your wildest dreams. Ready to write? Ready to have fun? The Little Book of Sitcom is the big little book for you. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Vorhaus.

The Essential Little Book of Great Lawyering teaches lawyers everything they need to know - and do - to impress clients. If your clients think you are a great lawyer, they give you more work and referrals. If your clients would not describe you as ´´the best lawyer with whom they have ever worked´´ then you must listen to this audiobook. Jim´s core thesis is simple: Being a great lawyer IS the best way to grow a practice. This will be music to the ears of many lawyers who are reluctant to enter the seemingly-pedestrian world of marketing. Unfortunately, there is a twist. Lawyers must understand what it means to be a great lawyer in the client´s eyes, and that requires a very specific approach to lawyering. The framework for this approach is set forth in a clear, practical and engaging series of examples and ideas that have grown out of hundreds of client interviews Jim has conducted. 1.
