America's Bitter Pill: Money, Politics, Backroo...

New York Times best seller. A New York Times notable book.America’s Bitter Pill is Steven Brill’s acclaimed book on how the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, was written, how it is being implemented, and, most important, how it is changing - and failing to change - the rampant abuses in the healthcare industry. It’s a fly-on-the-wall account of the titanic fight to pass a 961-page law aimed at fixing America's largest, most dysfunctional industry. It's a penetrating chronicle of how the profiteering that Brill first identified in his trailblazing Time Magazine cover story continues, despite Obamacare. And it is the first complete, inside account of how President Obama persevered to push through the law, but then failed to deal with the staff incompetence and turf wars that crippled its implementation. But by chance America’s Bitter Pill ends up being much more - because as Brill was completing this book, he had to undergo urgent open-heart surgery. Thus, this also becomes the story of how one patient who thinks he knows everything about health-care “policy” rethinks it from a hospital gurney - and combines that insight with his brilliant reporting. The result: a surprising new vision of how we can fix American health care so that it stops draining the bank accounts of our families and our businesses and the federal treasury.   Praise for America’s Bitter Pill:   “A tour de force...a comprehensive and suitably furious guide to the political landscape of American healthcare...persuasive, shocking.” (The New York Times)“An energetic, picaresque, narrative explanation of much of what has happened in the last seven years of health policy.... [Brill] has pulled off something extraordinary.” (The New York Times Book Review)“A thunderous indictment of what Brill refers to as the ‘toxicity of our profiteer-dominated healthcare system.’” (Los Angeles Times)   / 1.

The Walker Brothers were one of the most successful bands in pop history. Their titanic chart hits - 'The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore', 'Make It Easy On Yourself, 'My Ship Is Coming In' - and their youthful good looks established Scott, John, and Gary as the original teen idols. During their height in the mid 60s, the Walkers could boast a fan club larger than that of The Beatles.After the group disbanded in 1967, the brothers pursued solo careers. Only Scott Walker met with any real commercial success, issuing a quartet of self-titled albums, now rightly hailed as classics. The trio would slide into obscurity as the decade turned, before reforming and rising phoenix-like in the mid 70s, with the classic 'No Regrets' hit single. They concluded their recording career with a groundbreaking album, 1978's Nite Flights, but the extraordinary legacy of The Walker Brothers and their enigmatic frontman, Scott Walker, lives on.In the first in-depth biography of The Walker Brothers, Anthony Reynolds traces the rise and fall of one of the seminal pop acts and examines their unique contribution to popular music. He also reappraises the talent and appeal of the cult hero Scott Walker, as well as tracing the often neglected careers of the other two Walker brothers, John and Gary.The book covers the years from the early 60s to their revival in the mid 70s, telling the Walkers' fascinating story through the words of the brothers themselves. We also hear from those who helped make The Walker Brothers such a phenomenon - the musicians, record label staff, and producers, the fans and the photographers - and many were interviewed exclusively for this book. Tracing the band and solo careers, Reynolds assesses each album and single, including outtakes and unreleased songs. Profusely illustrated, featuring many previously unpublished photographs, this volume is a must for any fan of classic pop music.

In 'How To Be A Billionaire' erfahren Sie, wie sich manche Leute in einem ganz bestimmten Bereich menschlichen Strebens hervorgetan haben, nämlich im Streben nach Geld. Hier geht es nicht um das halbe Prozent der amerikanerikanischen Bevölkerung, das über einen Kapitalwert von einer Million Dollar verfügt. Hier geht es um Amerikaner, die 1.000 bis 40.000 Millionen Dollar ihr eigen nennen. In diesem Buch wird zum ersten Mal diese massive Anhäufung von privatem Vermögen ausführlich untersucht. Hierbei stützt sich Fridson verstärkt auf Biographien und journalistische Reportagen, die die Findigkeit, den Elan und die Rücksichtslosigkeit dokumentieren, auf die sich diese Vermögen gründen. Er enthüllt die wichtigsten Taktiken, Prinzipien und Strategien, die die Reichen superreich gemacht haben, wie z. B: 'Verstosse gegen die Regeln', 'Nachahmung ist besser als Innovation', 'Beherrsche den Markt', 'Investiere in politischen Einfluss' und 'Übertrumpfe die Konkurrenz'. Erläutert wird das gesamte Repertoire, angefangen bei Verhandlungstechniken über Tipps für den besten Deal bis hin zur Wahl der Branche und zum Börsengang des Unternehmens. Eine unverzichtbare Lektüre für jeden, der (erfolg-)reicher werden will. 'A truly enlightening work filled with fundamental strategies that have worked for others.Martin Fridson documents the essential principles inherent in every billionaire s success.' -Gordon Bethune Chairman of the Board and CEO Continental Airlines Self-made billionaires all have one thing in common: they excel at making money. But hard work, thrift, and focus are only part of the story-you hold the rest of it in your hands. How to Be a Billionaire is the first comprehensive picture of the real strategies and tactics that built the great business fortunes of modern times. Packed with engaging accounts of titans like Ross Perot, Richard Branson, Phil Anschutz, John D. Rockefeller, Wayne Huizenga, Bill Gates, J. Paul Getty, and Kirk Kerkorian, How to Be a Billionaire will show you principles that can increase your wealth and business acumen to the mogul level. How to Be a Billionaire looks at the careers, the methods, and the minds of self-made billionaires to distill the common keys to titanic accumulations of wealth. Each chapter explores a specific strategy and brings it to life through extended profiles of past and present masters of the art of making money. Do you think innovation is the best way to prosper in business? Sam Walton, founder of the Wal-Mart retail chain, would tell you otherwise. The key to Walton s success was supreme devotion to copying the methods of other successful discounters. What could be less complicated than buying low and selling high? But the ascent of Warren Buffett, John Kluge, and Laurence Tisch to billionaire status depended on much more than an eye for good bargains. And if you re looking to thrive by outmanaging the competition, look no further than Richard Branson. When the founder of Virgin Atlantic needed to reduce his staff by 400 people, 600 volunteered to take off a few months on sabbatical. How to Be a Billionaire identifies the methods, beliefs, and behaviors every businessperson must understand and emulate to reach the pinnacle of riches. A manual for success that can benefit every aspiring tycoon, it is a fascinating read for anyone intrigued by wealth and how it s gotten. Praise for HOW TO BE A BILLIONAIRE 'How to Be a Billionaire offers fascinating insight into the subject of building wealth. As a result of his exhaustive research, Martin Fridson is able to explain the wealth-creation process from a unique perspective. As the reader will discover, there is no single formula for success, but there are certain categories into which these concepts can be placed. My personal advice is to remember the words of Winston Churchill who said, Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm. ' -Ross Perot 'Martin Fridson has created the ultimate roadmap to the American Dream. He comes as close to extracting a formula for the acquisition of wealth as any book I have ever read.' -Jeff Sagansky CEO, Paxson Communications 'Martin Fridson s book has a number of very insightful and thoughtful

A must-read for Downton Abbey fans—a lush, historical novel about the secretive Darlingtons of Wentworth Hall. Can't get enough of Downton Abbey? Visit Wentworth Hall. It's one of England's oldest estates, and the Darlingtons are among the elite class of British society. But under the wealth are secrets that must stay hidden. It's 1912, and eighteen-year-old Maggie and her mother have just returned from a year abroad where Lady Darlington has had a baby boy, James. But he is not the only addition to the house. They have also brought back Therese, their new French tutor, as well as welcomed the orphaned teenage twins, Teddy and Jessica, who have just lost their father aboard the Titanic. This adds to an already crowded house of Darlingtons and staff, all of whom have a penchant for gossiping about their employers. As time passes, it becomes clear that Teddy and Jessica would rather be anywhere else and that Maggie is a different person from the one who left Wentworth. Her family's financial future rests with her finding the best husband—and her parents are sure that is Teddy. When scandalous satires start appearing in the newspaper with details that closely mirror the lives of the Darlingtons, the family is determined to find the culprit and keep their affairs under wraps. But at Wentworth Hall, nothing stays secret for long....

Dieses Buch ist wahrscheinlich der aussergewöhnlichste und unappetitlichste Ratgeber über Seekrankheiten auf Kreuzfahrtschiffen seit Erfindung der Musik- und Vergnügungsdampfer. Möglicherweise ist die Titanic nur deshalb gesunken, weil sie durch die alle auf einer Seite des Schiffes stehenden und sich übergebenden Passagiere zu sehr Schlagseite bekam und deshalb den Eisblock rammte. Der Autor Wolfgang T. Müller ist auf vielen deutschen Kreuzfahrtschiffen als sogenannter Lektor tätig und kann als 'Staff' hinter die Kulissen sehen. Dort, wo kein Passagier je hinkommt. Er kennt die Auswirkungen der Seekrankheit wie kein Zweiter und hat aus vielen Reiseerlebnissen an Bord ein äusserst vergnügliches, satirisches Buch geschrieben, das in keiner Bordbibliothek und in keiner Reisetasche fehlen darf und einfach als ein 'Must' mitgenommen werden soll auf die grosse Reise über den Weltmeeren. Trotz allen Humors ist dieses Buch 'Zum Kotzen' ein wertvoller Ratgeber rund um das Thema 'Seekrankheiten'. Viele Tipps und Tricks von der Prävention bis hin zur Behandlung einer Seekrankheit im Notfall finden sich in diesem Reiseführer der besonderen Art. Auch alternativmedizinische und homöopathische Empfehlungen wie Ingwer, Bachblüten und Globolis sind dort genauso zu finden wie die Geheimtipps der russischen Seeleute oder skurille Dinge wie Seebrillen. Auch der Bordpfarrer hat so seine ganz eigenen Methoden und es gibt sogar ein ganze Kapitel zu 'Kotzen aus spiritueller Sicht'. Dass auch des deutschen Urlaubers allerliebste Beschäftigung, nämlich das 'Sonnenliegenreservieren' eine Steigerung auf einem Kreuzfahrtschiff findet und vom Autoren liebevoll karikiert wird, versteht sich von selbst. Diese Buch mit dem sehr provokativen, aber bewusst ausgewählten Titel 'Zum Kotzen' ist sicherlich eines der humorvollsten Reiseratgeber für alle Kreuzfahrtsüchtigen.
