You Can Do It: A Guide To Starting and Running A New Business

This is a book written for the small business entrepreneur to provide them with a comprehensive overview of the various tasks that should be done to successfully start and run a small business.

The Voyage of the Endeavour is undoubtedly one of the most delightfully readable and authentic accounts ever written of Captain James Cook's first memorable voyage of exploration. Its republication at this time commemorates not only the 200th anniversary of the discovery by Cook of the east coast of Australia, but also the work of an historian who was a pioneer among Australian historical writers.

Professor Wood brought a freshness to the study of Australian history that was at that time rare and wrote in a manner that was pleasant for a layman to read and at the same time useful to the student.

He strove after and achieved authenticity. This present text is thus exactly as Professor Wood wrote it. He was able to use the then newly discovered manuscript journal of Captain James Cook and he drew faithfully from the original. The result is a book that can be recommended to the young as well as to older readers. In my opinion there is no more accurate or vivid account of Cook's first voyage.

This ebook comes with a Table of Contents for easy use.
