Captain of Industry Excerpt :

The world is at Jennifer Lamont’s feet—right where she wants it. She has made breaking hearts a blood sport, and the cool, calculated use of other people’s backs has led to the stardom she has craved from the first time she heard applause. Lust or fear is all she has ever believed she could see in the eyes of others. Suzanne Mason has built the enviable life she was always told smart geeks could never have. Fortune, fame and the beautiful girls usually reserved for captains of football teams are all hers. She has everything she ever wanted, except the one woman who is no one’s trophy. Expert combatants in the games of life know there can only be one winner. Regardless of the scorching attraction between them, the game of love is no different, is it?

Captains of Industry Excerpt :

[T]he great service rendered by Ludwick to the cause of his adopted country was in supplying her soldiers with good bread. In 1777, Congress gave him a regular commission as "Superintendent of Bakers and Director of Baking in the Army of the United States," at seventy-five dollars a month and two rations a day...-from "Christopher Ludwick, Baker-General of the Revolutionary Army"A primer for children on the "sterling qualities" that drive the American industrialist, this charming 1884 volume introduces us to a gallery of upstanding characters. Some you've heard of (Horace Greeley, Journalist; Peter Cooper, Philanthropist), but most you haven't (Elihu Burritt, The Learned Blacksmith; Michael Reynolds, Engine-Driver; Alvan Clarke, Telescope Maker). Parton's biographical sketches are delightful encapsulations of Yankee cleverness, enterprise, and the Can-do! spirit that will enchant readers young and old.American writer, educator, and lecturer JAMES PARTON (1822-1891) was born in England and emigrated to New York as a small child. He wrote prodigiously on a wide variety of subjects; his books include Life of Horace Greeley (1855), Humorous Poetry of the English Language from Chaucer to Saxe (1856), and Manual for the Instruction of Rings, Railroad and Political, and How New York is Governed (1866).

This is a volume of Veblen's most important studies, published posthumously in 1936. The work is divided into three major segments: essays on economics, including the history of the field; miscellaneous papers, which nearly all come to rest on matters of religion and philosophy; and what Ardzrooni, Veblen's editor calls war essays, which again reveal a very worldly and wise observer of current events and critic of national policies.

Superyacht Captain Excerpt :

In Superyacht Captain, a professional at the zenith of one of the world's most lavish and exclusive industries gives a rare insight into a career that makes for eyebrow-raising reading, as entertaining as it is instructive. The tale of an ordinary boy whose career takes him on a most extraordinary journey, this book begins with Brendan messing about in boats in a sleepy coastal Australian town, and ends with him becoming one of the most successful and respected superyacht captains in the industry – the consummate 'Billionaire's Captain'. Spanning two decades and circling the globe, his story draws readers into the real world of superyachts, their crew and their owners, in the most intimate of ways. Brendan weaves in the lessons he's learned as he's progressed from deck hand to captain, and these insights are valuable for anyone leading teams with demanding objectives. As captain, Brendan was expected to achieve excellence every single time, and here he reveals how he learnt to deal with the 'everyday' demands of the job as well as emergency situations. Surprisingly humble and self aware, in a world of glitter and extravagance you can see why he's trusted. All of this is told against a backdrop of seemingly impossible glamour at the most extravagant edge of the boating spectrum, with plenty of entertaining stories of the superyacht lifestyle. A brilliant read for all sailors and motorboaters, for the many superyacht fans out there, as well as anyone interested in leadership and management techniques from someone at the top of their game, working for those who define the rules of the game.

Corporate Pharaohs A Vicious Circle of Globalization Excerpt :

Richard received his education on the East Coast: A Master's degree at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, and a Ph.D. in Economics at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J. Both Richard and June were raised in the inner city of Newark, went to the same high school, and were married in 1954. June received a bachelor's degree from Portland State University and a Ph.D. from the University of Oregon, both in Sociology. This interconnection between the economic and sociological permeates their basic research focus which, overall, is directed toward an analysis of the dynamics of culture evolution. Richard's and June's current research interests relate to the interrelation between globalization and culture.
