Inspiring words from Never Give Up! ´´I believe the so-called ´impossible´ is actually very often possible, if you´re willing to work very hard, and if you realize that problems can become opportunities.´´ ´´When I hear the word ´no´ it becomes a challenge to me.´´ ´´It´s been said that what makes me accessible to people-aside from The Apprentice showing how I operate in the business world-is that I´ve faced tremendous adversity. It´s something everyone can relate to. The difference may be in the amount of zeros after the numbers, but the point is, people can relate to difficulties. For example, I had such an amazing reversal of fortune in the early 1990s that I am listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for the biggest financial turnaround in history. I don´t recommend anyone aim for the same goal, but when you´ve been on the financial high wire, it gives you a certain perspective that might be helpful to other people. As one writer described the journey of life, No one gets out of this alive. That´s a bit existential but when you´re down a few billion dollars in the red, it can make you think in new dimensions . . . ´´

Seamlessly blending history and reportage, Bill Barich offers a heartfelt homage to the traditional Irish pub, and to the central piece of Irish culture disappearing along with it. After meeting an Irishwoman in London and moving to Dublin, Bill Baricha found himself looking for a traditional Irish pub to be his local.There are nearly 12,000 pubs in Ireland, so he appeared to have plenty of choices. He wanted a pub like the one in John Fords classic movie, ´´The Quiet Man´´, offering talk and drink with no distractions, but such pubs are now scare as publicans increasingly rely on flat-screen televisions, rock music, even Texas Hold ´Em to attract a dwindling clientele. For Barich, this signaled that something deeper was at playan erosion of the essence of Ireland, perhaps without the Irish even being aware.A Pint of Plain is Barichs witty, deeply observant portrait of an Ireland vanishing before our eyes. Drawing on the wit and wisdom of Flann O´Brien, James Joyce, Brendan Behan, and J. M. Synge, Barich explores how Irish culture has become a commodity for exports for such firms as the Irish Pub Company, which has built some 500 authentic Irish pubs in 45 countries, where authenticity is in the eye of the beholder. The tale of Arthur Guinness and the famous brewery he founded in the mid-18th century reveals the astonishing fact that more stout is sold in Nigeria than in Ireland itself. From the famed watering holes of Dublin to tiny village pubs, Barich introduces a colorful array of characters, and, ever pursuing craic, the ineffable Irish word for a good time, engages in an unvarnished yet affectionate discussion about what it means to be Irish today. 1.
