Bulgakov and Mandelstam never met and yet their lives had much in common. Both
men were born in the same year, 1891, and both lives ended prematurely, crushed
by the cruel totalitarian system. Mandelstam died in a Siberian gulag in December
1938, and Bulgakov 14 month later, in March 1940, from a terminal illness, probably
brought on by unbearable stress and disillusionment.
Despite their obvious
genius both were largely unappreciated and unrecognized exept by a handful of
close friends who gave them encouragement and moral support. Both had unusually
close relationships with their wives who inspired their work during their lifetime
and enthusiastically promoted it after their deaths. If it were not for the wives'
courageous efforts against all odds, world literature would have lost Mandelstam's
luminous poetry and Bulgakov's superb magic realism forever.

is a global household name. Look around your house – you may have a Trinitron
television, a VAIO computer, a PlayStation or a Walkman. Or maybe movie DVDs such
as Men In Black and Stuart Little. Or music CDs by Billie Holiday, Michael Jackson
or Macy Gray. Sony’s role in the evolution of electronics over the half a century
is undeniable, offering the world the first transistor radio, the first portable
stereo, the first home video-game console using three-dimensional graphics, among
others. This book tells the story of Sony’s past and present, and the vision and
drive of founders, Masaru Ibuka and Akio Morita. Beyond narrative history, the
book serves as a case study for how entrepreneurs, with the right combination
of tenacity, passion, creativity and an eye for the future, can build a company
from the humblest of beginnings into a global giant, with operating revenues of
more than US$50 billion and close to 170,000 employees.
The rapid changes
in technology and the adventof the Broadband Age have made it difficult for Sony
to rest on the laurels it earned in the past. But even as Sony strives to develop
beyond traditional realms of a consumer-electronics company to become a global
giant of broadband entertainment, one constant will almost always remain within
the company’s culture, and that is Sony’s drive to think outside conventional
wisdom and capture consumers’ imagination, continuing to make them see products
and exclaim, “Ah, it’s a Sony!”

never strikes twice, but Steve Jobs has, transforming modern culture first with

with his Pixar movies. And he has bedeviled, destroyed, and demoralized hundreds
of people along the way. Steve Jobs is the most interesting character of the digital
What a long, strange journey it has been. With the mainstream success
of the iPod, Pixar's string of hits and subsequent divorce from Disney, and Steve's
triumphant return to Apple, his story is better than any fiction. Ten years after
the leading maverick of the computer age and the king of digital cool, crashed
from the height of Apple's meteoric rise, Steve Jobs rose from ashes in a Machiavellian
coup that only he could have orchestrated-and has now become more famous than
In this encore to his classic 1987 unauthorized biography of Steve
Jobs-a major bestseller- Jeffrey Young examines Jobs' remarkable resurgence, one
of the most amazing business comeback stories in recent years. Drawing on a wide
range of sources in Silicon Valley and Hollywood, he details how Jobs put Apple
back on track, first with the iMac and then with the iPod, and traces Jobs' role
in the remarkable rise of the Pixar animation studio, including his rancorous
feud with Disney's Michael Eisner.
- Written with insider scoops and no-holds-barred
- Based on hundreds of highly unauthorized interviews with Jobs' nearest
- New information on the acrimonious parting between Eisner and
Jobs, the personal vendetta behind the return to Apple, and the future of iPod
