The Four by Book Resume:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER USA TODAY BESTSELLER Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google are the four most influential companies on the planet. Just about everyone thinks they know how they got there. Just about everyone is wrong. For all that’s been written about the Four over the last two decades, no one has captured their power and staggering success as insightfully as Scott Galloway. Instead of buying the myths these compa­nies broadcast, Galloway asks fundamental questions. How did the Four infiltrate our lives so completely that they’re almost impossible to avoid (or boycott)? Why does the stock market forgive them for sins that would destroy other firms? And as they race to become the world’s first trillion-dollar company, can anyone chal­lenge them? In the same irreverent style that has made him one of the world’s most celebrated business professors, Galloway deconstructs the strategies of the Four that lurk beneath their shiny veneers. He shows how they manipulate the fundamental emotional needs that have driven us since our ancestors lived in caves, at a speed and scope others can’t match. And he reveals how you can apply the lessons of their ascent to your own business or career. Whether you want to compete with them, do business with them, or simply live in the world they dominate, you need to understand the Four.

Only Yesterday by Frederick Lewis Allen Book Resume:

A history of roaring prosperity—and economic cataclysm: “The one account of America in the 1920s against which all others must be measured” (The Washington Post). Beginning November 11, 1918, when President Woodrow Wilson declared the end of World War I in a letter to the American public, and continuing through his defeat, Prohibition, the Big Red Scare, the rise of women’s hemlines, and the stock market crash of 1929, Only Yesterday, published just two years after the crash, chronicles a decade like no other. Allen, who witnessed firsthand the events he describes, immerses you in the era of flappers, speakeasies, and early radio, making you feel like part of history as it unfolds. This bestselling, enduring account brings to life towering historical figures including J. Pierpont Morgan, Henry Ford, Sigmund Freud, Albert Einstein, Al Capone, Babe Ruth, and Jack Dempsey. Allen provides insightful, in-depth analyses of President Warren G. Harding’s oil scandal, the growth of the auto industry, the decline of the family farm, and the long bull market of the late twenties. Peppering his narrative with actual stock quotes and breaking financial news, Allen tracks the major economic trends of the decade and explores the underlying causes of the crash. From the trial of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti to the inventions, crazes, and revolutions of the day, this timeless work will continue to be savored for generations to come.

Ross-Ade by Robert C. Kriebel Book Resume:

Dave Ross (1871-1943) and George Ade (1866-1944) were trustees, distinguished alumni and benefactors of Purdue University. Their friendship began in 1922 and led to their giving land and money for the 1924 construction of Ross-Ade Stadium, now a 70,000 seat athletic landmark on the West Lafayette campus. Their life stories date to 1883 Purdue and involve their separate student experiences and eventual fame. Their lives crossed paths with U.S. First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Henry Ford, Amelia Earhart, and Will Rogers among others. Gifts or ideas from Ross or Ade led to creation of the Purdue Research Foundation, Purdue Airport, Ross Hills Park, and Ross Engineering Camp. They helped Purdue Theater, the Harlequin Club and more. Ade, renowned author and playwright, did butt heads with Purdue administrators at times long ago, but remains a revered figure. Ross's ingenious mechanical inventions of gears still steer millions of motorized vehicles, boats, tractors, even golf carts the world over.

Sports Violence by J.H. Goldstein Book Resume:

Books about sports, even those written by scholars, are frequently little more than hagiography. They extol the virtue of athletics for participant and spectator alike. Of greater rarity are those that look critically at the political, social, economic, and psychological underpinnings of contemporary sports. Violence in sports is among the relatively neglected issues of serious study. Sports Violence is perhaps the first collection of scholarly theory and research to examine in detail aggression within and surrounding sports. As such, it seeks to present the broadest possible range of interpretations and perspectives. The book is, therefore, both interdisciplinary and international in scope. Two chapters, by Guttmann and Vamplew, are concerned with historical analyses of sports violence. Definitions and perspectives on aggression in general, and sports-related aggression in particular, are the topics of Chapters 4 through 7 by Smith, Bredemeier, Mark, Bryant, and Lehman, and Mummendey and Mummendey. Here, a wide variety of social and psychological theories are brought to bear on the conceptualization of aggression on the playing field and in the stands. Dunning and Liischen, both sociologists of sport, examine the origins, structure, and functions of violence, of sports, and of their interconnections. Psychological interpreta tions and research are presented in chapters by Russell and Keefer, Goldstein, and Kasiarz, while Bryant and Zillmann examine the portrayal and effects of aggression in televised sports.

In Testosterone Inc.: Tales of CEOs Gone Wild, bestselling authorand New York Post columnist Chris Byron chronicles the Gatsby-likesaga of the rise and fall of the celebrity CEO. During the heightof the 1990s bull market, they were America’s new heroes: theheroes of business. They were our bold new leaders, cutting thefat, pushing for productivity, implementing visionary plans, andmaking strategic deals. When the bull market turned to bust and the applause turned tocat-calls, the world was shocked at the truth. Drenched in moneyand public acclaim, our CEO-heroes—mostly white, mostly male,mostly middle-aged—turned out to be not much different than agroup of twenty-something rock stars—drunk on power anddriven by sex, greed, and glamour. Testosterone Inc. goes behind the boardroom doors to show theserial affairs and marriages of these acquisitive corporatetitans. At the center of this story is Jack Welch, thebiggest of America’s rock star CEOs and the former head ofGeneral Electric Co., surrounded by “mini-me” CEOs RonPerelman of Revlon, Al Dunlap of Sunbeam, and Dennis Kozlowski ofTyco—all gone wild in public displays of consumption andpredatory appetites writ large. Byron gets inside the bars where Welch liked to hang out andpick up women with his early “business soul mate”buddies. Byron hovers unseen at the elbow of Ron Perelman and hismistress aboard the Concorde for a week in Paris in his mistakenbelief that his wife knows nothing about his secret affair. Byronpeeks behind the curtains of a U.S. Army officers’ quartersto behold Al Dunlap horrifying his first wife, who claimed in herdivorce action that Dunlap would point his knife at her and say,“I often wondered what human flesh tasted like.” Byronbecomes a fly on the wall to chronicle the longing for respect andserial womanizing of Dennis Kozlowski. Frequently hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, Testosterone Inc.follows the intertwined lives of these four corporate heroes, fromchildhood to their ultimate moments of glory and the crash-and-burncalamities that followed, as man’s age-old hunger for power,greed, and temptation undid them all. From suicide to murder,from dysfunctional childhoods to dysfunctional marriages inadulthood, from business chutzpah to financial suicide, here is theultimate untold business story of our time: what went on atcentury’s end, when testosterone got the best of businessmeneverywhere, and CEOs went wild.

A New Kind of Bleak by Owen Hatherley Book Resume:

In A Guide to the New Ruins of Great Britain, Owen Hatherley skewered New Labour’s architectural legacy in all its witless swagger. Now, in the year of the Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics, he sets out to describe what the Coalition’s altogether different approach to economic mismanagement and civic irresponsibility is doing to the places where the British live. In a journey that begins and ends in the capital, Hatherley takes us from Plymouth and Brighton to Belfast and Aberdeen, by way of the eerie urbanism of the Welsh valleys and the much-mocked splendour of modernist Coventry. Everywhere outside the unreal Southeast, the building has stopped in towns and cities, which languish as they wait for the next bout of self-defeating austerity. Hatherley writes with unrivalled aggression about the disarray of modern Britain, and yet this remains a book about possibilities remembered, about unlikely successes in the midst of seemingly inexorable failure. For as well as trash, ancient and modern, Hatherley finds signs of the hopeful country Britain once was and hints of what it might become.
