3. Bulgakov & Mandelstam. Two Literary Giants. (заказать)Издательство: Glas, 1993 г.
Мягкая обложка, 192 стр.
ISBN 5-7172-0003-X, 0-939010-40-2

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.

Business the Sony Way: Secrets of the World's Most Innovative Electronics Giant. (заказать)Издательство: Capstone Pub, 2003 г.
Мягкая обложка, 304 стр.
ISBN 0470820977

Sony 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!”

iCon Steve Jobs: The Greatest Second Act in the History of Business. (заказать)Издательство: Wiley Publishing, Inc, 2005 г.
Твердый переплет, 368 стр.
ISBN 0471720836

Lightning never strikes twice, but Steve Jobs has, transforming modern culture first with the Macintosh and more recently with the iPod. He has dazzled and delighted audiences 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 age.

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 ever.

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 style
- Based on hundreds of highly unauthorized interviews with Jobs' nearest and dearest
- New information on the acrimonious parting between Eisner and Jobs, the personal vendetta behind the return to Apple, and the future of iPod and the music industry
