    Here is THE book recounting the life and times of one of the most respected men in the world, Warren Buffett. The legendary Omaha investor has never written a memoir, but now he has allowed one writer, Alice Schroeder, unprecedented access to explore directly with him and with those closest to him his work, opinions, struggles, triumphs, follies, and wisdom. The result is the personally revealing and complete biography of the man known everywhere as "The Oracle of Omaha."

    Ben Horowitz offers essential advice on building and running a startup - practical wisdom for managing the toughest problems business school doesn’t cover, based on his popular ben’s blog. While many people talk about how great it is to start a business, very few are honest about how difficult it is to run one. The Hard Thing About Hard Things is invaluable for veteran entrepreneurs as well as those aspiring to their own new ventures, drawing from Horowitz’s personal and often humbling experiences.

    In this riveting landmark autobiography, which reads like a novel, Academy Award and Emmy winner Louis Gossett, Jr., masterfully transports us to 1840s New York; Washington, D.C.; and Louisiana to experience the kidnapping and 12 years of bondage of Solomon Northup, a free man of color. Twelve Years a Slave, published in 1853, was an immediate bombshell in the national debate over slavery leading up to the Civil War.

    Great companies can fail: not because they do anything wrong, but because they do everything right. Meeting customers' current needs leads firms to reject breakthrough innovations, "disruptive technologies", that create the products and opportunities of the future.

    The new question: Ten years after the worldwide bestseller Good to Great, Jim Collins returns to ask: Why do some companies thrive in uncertainty, even chaos, and others do not? In Great by Choice, Collins and his colleague, Morten T. Hansen, enumerate the principles for building a truly great enterprise in unpredictable, tumultuous, and fast-moving times. The new study: Great by Choice distinguishes itself from Collins’s prior work by its focus on the type of unstable environments faced by leaders today.

    This book brought me an amazing set of personal revelations. Its insights allow me practical information that I can apply and improve my personal and professional lives.


    Any additional comments?

    Jim Collins' reading was GREAT! He didn't simply read the words on the page, he sought to create a separate audible version of the book. The audio version is complete on its own without the supporting text.

  • The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine

    Who understood the risk inherent in the assumption of ever-rising real-estate prices, a risk compounded daily by the creation of those arcane, artificial securities loosely based on piles of doubtful mortgages? Michael Lewis turns the inquiry on its head to create a fresh, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor, a fitting sequel to his number-one best-selling Liar’s Poker.

    Jill Pagano says: "Finally, I understand what happened!"
    "The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine"
    Overall

    If you read only one book about the causes of the recent financial crisis, let it be Michael Lewis' The Big Short. The thing that makes his story so great is that he tells it through the eyes of the 4 groups of men that had the courage to take a position that opposed the smartest men in the financial industry and, sad to say, our government. They were some of the first to see the fraud behind the subprime meltdown and found a way to make a fortune off the financial systems' crash.

    Michael Lewis'; new book gives a slightly less complicated view into the disaster by recounting the stories of these savvy renegades who cashed in on their belief that the system was rotten. In doing so, we end up rooting for people who helped bring about the catastrophe that put a lot of good people out of work.

    Still, the stories of these men make clear the greed, stupidity and double standards of a system lacking in grown-up supervision. A system, refueled by tax payer billions, that continues to be filled with the same firms, the same super rich executives, and the same destructive thought processes that disdained the need for government regulation in good times, but insisted on being rescued by government in bad times.

    This is a fascinating book that should be read by anyone that wants to better understand the causes of the recent financial crisis. Be careful, as one reader put it, "Don't read this if you want to mellow out. This book will make you furious."
