    Here's how entrepreneurs find the next big thing-and make it huge. The era of easy money and easy jobs is officially over. Today, we're all entrepreneurs, and the tides of change threaten to capsize anyone who plays it safe. Taking risks is the name of the game - but how can you tell a smart bet from a stupid gamble? Andy Kessler offers 12 surprising and controversial rules for these radical entrepreneurs.

    Overall

    It's clear Andy is a Republican by his views on government and policy but this book is not about politics. This book hovers around a couple key concepts about what really moves the needle when it comes to the prosperity of our country. He explains his ideas very clearly and it a way that just makes good sense.

  • Executive Presence: The Missing Link between Merit and Success

    Do you exude confidence and credibility? Can you command a room? Sylvia Ann Hewlett, one of the world's most influential business thinkers, cracks the code of Executive Presence (EP) for men and women intent on winning the next plum assignment and doing something extraordinary with their lives. You might have the qualifications to be considered for your dream job, but you won't get far unless you can signal that you're "leadership material" and that you "have what it takes."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book generally. While entertaining, it did not have mind blowing insight for me personally. The author focuses heavily on woman's issues and the differences in executive presence for woman as compared to men. Also the author overly focuses on how to dress, and repeats many of the same points. The rest of the book is enjoyable if you can get past the comments above.

    It was a world gone wrong, one in which manufacturers thought little of manipulating product quality levels in order to save the smallest amounts, where savvy foreign business leaders were made to feel in control while they were taken for a ride by their partners, where entire manufacturing facilities sometimes vanished right into thin air... Welcome to Poorly Made in China!

    John says: "Hours of jaw dropping amazment"
    "Completely Enjoyable"
    Overall

    I looked forward to my drives to and from work all week as I listened to Paul's stories about doing business in China. It's an easy listen but at the same time there are very valueable lessons enbedded in this book. If you've ever been curious about Chinese manufacturing and culture then don't hesitate to buy this audiobook!!!

  • The Secret History of the American Empire

    In The Secret History of the American Empire, Perkins zeroes in on hot spots around the world and, drawing on interviews with other hit men, jackals, reporters, and activists, examines the current geopolitical crisis. Instability is the norm; it's clear that the world we've created is dangerous and no longer sustainable. How did we get here? Who's responsible? What good have we done and at what cost? And what can we do to change things for the next generations?

    Harry says: "Excellent - buy it now!"
    "Eye opening, exciting, outstanding, and SAD"
    Overall

    Everyone in America should read this book. Changed the way I fundamentally looked at things. Whether your conservative or liberal this book has value to what America has been and may be.

It's the simplest, most straight-forward game plan for completely making over your money habits. And it's based on results, not pie-in-the-sky fantasies.

    Gladis says: "Awesome advise"
    "A Passionate, Personal Book About Your Money"
    Overall

    I like the personal natural of this book. It gets to the emotions of being financially fit. Nice change from the usual long, detailed chapters on FICO scores, and 401k's.
