Der Autor arrangiert seine Gesichte der "positiven Energie" um die Metapher eines Busses, welcher sinnbildlich für das Leben eines jeden Einzelnen steht und stellt zehn konkrete Handlungsmaxime für ein positiveres und glücklicheres Leben vor. Um zu diesen Empfehlungen zu gelangen, begleiten wir George, der als Teamleiter bei einem Glühbirnenfabrikanten arbeitet. George hat nicht nur auf der Arbeit seinen Weg verloren. Als ehemals gefeierter Günstling seinen Chefs steht er mittlerweile nicht nur unter Dauerstress sondern auch auf der Abschussliste. Das wirkt sich auch auf sein Privatleben aus. Zu wenig Zeit für seine Kinder und zu wenig Zuwendung für seine Frau führen immer wieder zu Spannungen in der einst so harmonischen Beziehung. Seine Existenz ist nicht viel mehr als ein Scherbenhaufen. Bis zu dem Tag, als ihn ein platter Reifen zwingt, den Bus zu nehmen und er auf die Busfahrerin Joy trifft. Was er in diesem Moment noch nicht weiß: Joy und die Passagiere ihres Busses haben es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, gescheiterte Existenzen wie George mittels zehn einfacher Regeln wieder auf den rechten Weg zu führen. Zunächst reagiert George sehr ablehnend, doch schließlich lässt er sich auf die "Behandlung" der ewig lächelnden Busfahrerin ein und kann schon bald erste Erfolge verzeichnen. Letzten Endes rettet die Fahrt im "Energy Bus" nicht nur seinen Job und seine Ehe, sondern macht ihn auch zu einem glücklicheren Menschen.

Since its first edition, this textbook has been the first choice of teachers and students alike, due to its clear introduction to the basic principles of the multilateral trading system and its detailed examination of the law of the World Trade Organization. The third edition continues to explore the institutional and substantive law of the WTO. Material has been restructured to closely align with teaching approaches making it even more user-friendly. It has been updated to incorporate all new developments in the WTO's body of case law. Questions and assignments are integrated to allow students to assess their understanding, while chapter summaries reinforce learning. Chapters end with an exercise reflecting real-life trade problems: these challenge students (and practitioners) and enable them to hone their analytical skills. This title is an essential tool for all WTO law students and will also serve as the practitioner's introductory guide to the WTO.
