´´Once I picked it up I did not put it down until I finished. . . . What Schwed has done is capture fully-in deceptively clean language-the lunacy at the heart of the investment business.´´ -From the Foreword by Michael Lewis, Bestselling author of Liar´s Poker ´´. . . one of the funniest books ever written about Wall Street.´´ -Jane Bryant Quinn, The Washington Post ´´How great to have a reissue of a hilarious classic that proves the more things change the more they stay the same. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent.´´ -Michael Bloomberg ´´It´s amazing how well Schwed´s book is holding up after fifty-five years. About the only thing that´s changed on Wall Street is that computers have replaced pencils and graph paper. Otherwise, the basics are the same. The investor´s need to believe somebody is matched by the financial advisor´s need to make a nice living. If one of them has to be disappointed, it´s bound to be the former.´´ -John Rothchild, Author, A Fool and His Money, Financial Columnist, Time magazine
I had a feeling we would meet like this. I am going to take a wild guess that you are a wise human being trying to decide whether or not this book is for real. Allow me to interject two quick thoughts as you weigh out this high dollar, potentially life changing purchase: Excellent Point #1: My yacht isn´t going to pay for itself - here is your big chance to do your part. Equally Excellent Point #2: Your yacht won´t pay for itself, either. I know, I know, there is probably only a 60-80 percent chance you have a yacht payment (you probably own yours free and clear), but the fact remains, you aren´t allergic to money - you are a freaking genius and your business isn´t behaving. You might want to sit down for these bullets - a couple are gonna sting: Tired of putting up with crabby customers? Feel like you just can´t get to the ´´next level´´? Sick of your business owning you instead of the other way around? Want to know what the people who have more success with less effort know? Sick of reading books that have a lot of great sounding concepts, but don´t tell you exactly what to do now? Did a silent single tear just slide down your left cheek? You, friend, are in the right place! The genius outburst that you now hold is full of things you can do today to start living the life you want. Only one question remains: Who am I and why should you care? Fair question. My name is Mike Campion and I am just a run of the mill business owner who has spent the last two decades working his tail off passionately buying, selling, and studying the art of business. I have built, bought, and sold multiple businesses and went through a lot of brain damage in the process. I eat, drink, sleep, and sadly shower with thoughts of how to make better businesses and happier business owners dancing in my head. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Campion.

Hewlett Packard is an American icon, the largest information-technology company in the world. The bedrock of Silicon Valley, it employs more than 300,000 people, its market capitalization is in excess of $100 billion, and its products are in almost every home in the country where there is a printer or computer. In 1999 the company began a transition from the family management style of its founders. It made a bold statement by hiring as its new CEO the most visible female business executive in America: Carly Fiorina. In 2005, the board fired her, amid accusations of imperiousness that had begun to leak damagingly into the business media.The board at that time included one of Silicon Valley´s most flamboyant venture capitalists and owner of the largest and most expensive yacht in the world, and a former CIA asset who believed he personally channeled the values of the company´s founders. Each had a long and complicated history with HP, and each believed he should determine the company´s future. They ran up against a corporate governance expert whom they could not roll, and a new CEO whose loyalties on the board were entirely opaque. In this way, the stage was set for a rancorous feud that split the board into implacably distrusting factions. In the middle of the damaging schism, HP introduced the Big Lie. The lie was pinned on the chairman, who was receiving treatment for stage 4 ovarian cancer. And it sizzled through a largely unquestioning media.Anthony Bianco gets to heart of the ethical morass at HP that ended up damning the entire board that created it. Almost every American has an interest in how the country´s greatest corporations are run, and the character of the people entrusted with them. The story of Hewlett-Packard reflects power struggles that shape corporate America and is an alarming morality tale for our times. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Ganim.

An adrenaline-fuelled exposé of life inside the tech bubble, Chaos Monkeys lays bare the secrets, power plays and lifestyle excesses of the visionaries, grunts, sociopaths, opportunists and money cowboys who are revolutionising our world. Written by startup CEO and industry provocateur Antonio García Martínez, this is Liar´s Poker meets The Social Network. Computer engineers use ´chaos monkey´ software to wreak havoc and test system robustness. Similarly, tech entrepreneurs like Antonio García Martínez are society´s chaos monkeys - their innovations disrupt every aspect of our lives, from transportation (Uber) and holidays (Airbnb) to television (Netflix) and dating (Tinder) - all in search of the perfect business miracle. Describing himself as ´high strung, fast talking, and wired on a combination of caffeine, fear, and greed at all times´, García Martínez left Wall Street to make his fortune in Silicon Valley, becoming CEO of his own start-up before bailing and being poached by Facebook´s nascent advertising team. Here he turned users´ data into profit for COO Sheryl Sandberg and chairman and CEO Mark ´Zuck´ Zuckerberg. Forced out of Facebook in the wake of a bitter internal product war, García Martínez took his unique brand of entrepreneurial hyperactivity to rivals Twitter. Along the way he got into a lot of trouble with a lot of people, brewed illegal beer on the Facebook campus (accidentally flooding Zuckerberg´s desk), lived on a yacht, raced sport cars on the highway, and enthusiastically pursued the lifestyle of an overpaid Silicon Valley mercenary. In Chaos Monkeys he tells you how - and how not - to make a fortune through start-ups and digital marketing. Highly entertaining and always offering genuine insight, García Martínez unravels the chaotic evolution of social media and online marketing. From start-ups and credit derivatives to Big Brother and data tracking, social medi... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan John Miller.

In the weird glow of the dying millennium, Michael Lewis sets out on a safari through Silicon Valley to find the world´s most important technology entrepreneur, the man who embodies the spirit of the coming age. He finds him in Jim Clark, who is about to create his third, separate, billion-dollar company: first Silicon Graphics, then Netscape - which launched the Information Age - and now Healtheon, a startup that may turn the $1 trillion healthcare industry on its head. Despite the variety of his achievements, Clark thinks of himself mainly as the creator of Hyperion, which happens to be a sailboat - not just an ordinary yacht, but the world´s largest single-mast vessel, a machine more complex than a 747. Clark claims he will be able to sail it via computer from his desk in San Francisco, and the new code may contain the seeds of his next billion-dollar coup. On the wings of Lewis´ celebrated storytelling, the listener takes the ride of a lifetime through this strange landscape of geeks and billionaires. We get the inside story of the battle between Netscape and Microsoft; we sit in the room as Clark tries to persuade the investment bankers that Healtheon IS the new Microsoft; we get queasy as Clark pits his boat against the rage of the North Atlantic in winter. And in every brilliant anecdote and character sketch, Lewis is drawing us a map of markets and free enterprise in the 21st century. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bruce Reizen.
