A Carpet for Life
On the side stages and in the back yards of the world, people trade and bargain every day. They agree deals, get one over each other, fight and make up. Somebody in Chile develops a business idea based on an old football; cousin Igor takes his cakes to Moscow by night train; women in South Africa dream of finding a niche market and their place in the world using sunflowers. The stories in this book tell tales of business well done and open doors to worlds and cultures. They pay homage to people who, using humour and perseverance, take charge of their own lives.
Published by the Peter Hammer Verlag, the book is 170 pages, is bound, costs 29.50 CHF and is available in all good bookshops.
