When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant, I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years. —Mark Twain.

This book bridges the gap and makes career growth possible. Even if you’ve never considered yourself a leader, No Limits will guide you to new heights. It’s not talent and it’s not knowledge that will help you rise to the top: It’s quality service, above and beyond, that will help you reach new goals. Whether you’re already in a leadership position or you’re a brand-new team member, No Limits can have a significant impact on your career!

Book description…

Greed exercised by the rich and powerful and the behemoth corporations provides challenging obstacles for the working class of our society, growing income and wealth inequality and exacerbating worker exploitation. Even worse, it endangers our planet, threatening the life-sustaining habitat that enabled life and which is essential in sustaining life. Without corrective action, the ultimate result does not look promising for our future. For most members of our society, as we go about acquiring the essentials for living a comfortable life, doing business is not a level playing field. Dealing with the normal deception and dishonesty in advertising and marketing, and navigating the cleverness of the rentier element of society can be treacherous experiences for the powerless working-class. Kind of like swimming with sharks.

Book description…

Volumes have been written about both appraising and real estate lending. Little has been written that bridges the gap between both disciplines. Bill Pittenger has done that. He has distilled a lengthy series of original and contemporaneously written essays produced over four decades into a comprehensive anthology. In it he explores such diverse but relevant topics as using a real estate appraisal to gauge loan repayment risk and how to develop appraisal and community bank risk management policies. He explores federal appraisal regulation – both current and its evolution – as well as fair lending and compliance issues every banker and appraiser needs to understand. He writes about getting behind a value estimate to determine what a value estimate is saying and what the relationship of value indications really means. Appraising and lending on the security of real estate development projects has been a long term research interest of his for which he has received awards for his writings as well as for innovation and provocative thought. He writes about economic feasibility, marketability and highest and best use as well as the economics of development cost, the role of entrepreneurial profit, cash flow analysis and discounting. It All Matters: An Appraisal Anthology is a must read for real estate appraisers and bankers alike. Keep it close as a desk reference.
