About the Book

During the beginning of the millennium, I wrote a dozen papers on civility and mailed fifty two-page letters to presidents and corporate CEOs. I recommended the initiation of Friendship Day every August 2 each year. President Bush’s speechwriter used a mailed thirty-page treatise in the first part of his inauguration speech, with three references to civility. Unfortunately, the events of 9/11 reduced any impact the use of civility could have later. Various wars, terror, and disasters proved that greater issues of morality were to be dealt with for the next seventeen years. Friendships are the universal cures.

About the Author

For 25 years I moved 40 times while helping 70 companies improve profits until 2001. At half of my consulting, I was up 3 hours at night figuring out how to deal with resistance to new ideas, I learned to deal with adverse people and reactions of many to change. By1991, my experiences resulted in self-publishing a book, Profitable Cost Management. I distributed 60 copies plus 11 copies to writers' agents, in the next 15 years. It was part of the new science and technology of saving money.
