  • Born Standing Up: A Comic's Life

    In the mid-70s, Steve Martin exploded onto the comedy scene. By 1978 he was the biggest concert draw in the history of stand-up. In 1981 he quit forever. Born Standing Up is, in his own words, the story of "why I did stand-up and why I walked away".

    Andrew says: "Fantastic"
    "Untypically Steve"
    Overall

    Not much comedy but a lot of candid background. Missed the comedy, but enjoyed the history of his personal experiences.

    Story

    China's breakneck industrialization is placing it on a collision course with the entire world. Tomorrow's China Wars will be fought over everything from decent jobs, livable wages, and leading-edge technologies to strategic resources such as oil, copper, and steel, even food, water, and air.

    Joe says: "Good Narration, Book Flawed"
    "To the Brink and Left Standing"
    Overall

    Such a wonderful build up on history and the complex market interactions that make up the business risk and potential of "China Wars". After wading through the hours of build up, we are left with thin if any directly applicable principles and practicum needed for market success. Will the next book finish the work?

    How do you avoid being mesmerized by the latest fads in business - while still benefiting from new ideas? Learn what it takes to "bust the fads" and win at business in 60 minutes of conversation and instruction by the author of Fad Surfing in the Boardroom.

    "Breaking the Rules"
    Overall

    This book reveals the so simply obvious that is frequently lost to the fad rage. The writer could save millions in business consulting dollars and the jobs lost to pay for those consultants. She reveals the direct paths to success that are so simple a child can to it.

  • The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World

    Story
    (162)

    "This book is in part a detective story. After 9/11 I knew, if I needed further reinforcement, that we are living in a new world - the world of a global capitalist economy that is vastly more flexible, resilient, open, self-correcting, and fast-changing than it was even a quarter century earlier. It's a world that presents us with enormous new possibilities but also enormous new challenges. The Age of Turbulence is my attempt to understand the nature of this new world." (Alan Greenspan)

    Terry says: "Tripled my understanding of our economy"
    "More than meets the ear"
    Overall

    Mr. Greenspan touches issues of such sensitive nature after giving a full history of their origin and evolution. He hints at the source of economic destabilization as the loss of the "invested" base of society - those who save and construct or build wealth. The US savings rate plunged negative for the first time in US history in the post 9/11 era. This loss of economic base has complexed and weakened the economy and made historic economic models invalid. Greenspan addresses the way forward in candid, bold foresight.
