Audience learns ways to energize the environment and keep the morale of the team members high. This book is unique in that the author has not only unveiled the secrets of team leadership for the audience, but has also proposed a holistic approach to them which they can adopt to fully acquaint themselves with the wonders of the knowledge encapsulated in the book. The author tells how he has designed the book and clearly dictates how the book should be read and what guidelines should be considered while understanding the concepts. Before starting to write about the subject, the author divides the audience into two basic categories; First, readers who directly want to read the secrets of team leadership like magical verses and the second are the kind of readers who like to read moral-generating stories. “In designing the book, I decided that business readers fall into two basic types: those who want a no-fooling around “repair manual,” and those who are interested in case histories and a story line within which ideas are presented and developed” (Pacetta, 1994, 18). This enables a reader to have an in-sight into his own kind so that he may maintain the same radical approach right from the conception till the end of the book. At the time that Pacetta was assigned the duty of district manager in the sales office of Xerox’s Cleveland, conditions were weird in the organization. It took Pacetta no more than just one year to identify loopholes in the organizational system and take necessary measures to change the organizational culture for the better. After a year since Pacetta had taken the charge as the district manager, Cleveland had become first in the region and ranked forth among the sixty five sales districts. His services proved very favorable for the organization and within four years, the revenues in Cleveland became two-folds. Before, they were only $56 million and after four years, the revenues had become $106 million. Pacetta tells that he made this happen by maintaining the right kind of team and the right team spirit. Since then, Pacetta moved to the Mid-Ohio District with his team. In this book, Pacetta has explained the secrets one needs to know in order to take the organization to the apogee of success. Pacetta has referred to employees’ motivation as fundamental to the organizational success. Leadership leads an individual to success provided that the individual makes use of common sense along with learning the leadership principles. Through his book, Pacetta has offered a number of bulleted questions and checklists to the learners in order to let them have timely advice. As more of this book is read, the audience gains a sound understanding of the methods employed by pancetta, the way and the reason they work and the way they have to be applied in a particular work environment. It is Pacetta’s elaboration of the way he has written the book that makes it all the more interesting for the reader. This book is user-friendly in all manners. While reading the book, the audience gets an impression as if they are getting live lecture from some instructor in the class and are having face-to-face interaction with the instructor rather than reading the book of some author. In order to address the concerns of audience that are running short of time and cannot read full chapters to gain the concepts or the ones that are not very fond of reading books, Pacetta has provided a

Leaders and managers are expected to exhibit daring and resolve to design changes necessary for the organization to overcome specific concerns such as poor performance of personnel. Although it will be easier to terminate individuals who perform below standards, which is usually the case in several organizations, the book “Don’t Fire Them, Fire Them Up” by Frank Pacetta stresses on the concept of joint effort in realizing the organization’s objectives and targets.
What evidence would show there to be any, and how then could its magnitude be estimated?”3 The initial and most frequently cited research arguing for the measurable effectiveness of fire suppression on boreal forests stems from Ward and Tithecott.4 The study is based on 15 years of fire data and stand age data from Ontario, Canada.5 Fire suppression is functionally effective insofar as it produces a reduction in area burned.

The critics, Celsus, Pliny, Porphyry, Julian and Galen, all perceived Christianity as being a threat to the Roman empire’s religious and social order (Wilken, 2003). Wilken himself does not write as an adversary or apologist of Christianity, but a charitable historian towards the faith who seeks to make clear how Christianity developed by understanding its critics.
Not heeding advice of experienced men and above all underestimating the extreme forces of nature and a lone man's vulnerability in the face of the Alaskan winter, the traveler's bravado costs him his life. On eventually realizing that he would not make it alive to the camp, the traveler checks himself from panicking and running around like a headless chicken.

The conclusion from this study states that may be due to or in spite of his gloominess and of his being a realist, Jack London is also a very careful man. As he pictured his character “stepping gingerly and testing the footing for each step”, I think he was actually writing how he would act if he was the one in acting in his “To Build a Fire.”
