The "50-Minute series is a collection of over 200 books that have a common goal--a simple, direct, self-study approaches to topics. Designed to be brief and highly interactive, "50-Minute Books offer a single-minded approach to developing the skills needed in today's workplace. The promise is in the name, the books can be read in one or two evenings, or in one concentrated sitting. The "50-Minute Books in this catalog have helped millions of readers to understand the changing needs of the workplace and to find the ways to grow, adapt, and develop new skills at their own pace. Because these are books that describe and teach the fundamental and specialized skills people need today to succeed, individuals will seek them out. Managers will look here for help too--the businesses in any sizeable community often spend more on training people, and teaching them new skills, than the average school district spends on educating children.

If you would like to know more about how we can help you to help your customers, and find the potential sales in your business community, please let our reps know or contact Crisp Trade Sales.
