The Greatest Trade Ever: How One Man Bet Against the Markets and Made $20 Billion Audiobook

The Greatest Trade Ever: How One Man Bet Against the Markets and Made $20 Billion

Author: Gregory Zuckerman Narrator: Marc Cashman Release Date: December 2019

Brought to you by Penguin. 'The definitive account of a sensational trade' Michael Lewis, author of The Big Short Autumn 2008. The world's finances collapse but one man makes a killing. John Paulson, a softly spoken hedge-fund manager who still took the bus to work, seemed unlikely to stake his career on one big gamble. But he did - and The Greatest Trade Ever is the story of how he realised that the sub-prime housing bubble was going to burst, making $15 Billion for his fund and more than $4 Billion for himself in a single year. It's a tale of folly and wizardry, individual brilliance versus institutional stupidity. John Paulson made the biggest winning bet in history. And this is how he did it. 'Extraordinary, excellent' Observer 'A must-read for anyone fascinated by financial madness' Mail on Sunday 'A forensic, read-in-one-sitting book' Sunday Times 'Simply terrific. Easily the best of the post-crash financial books' Malcolm Gladwell 'A great page-turner and a great illuminator of the market's crash' John Helyar, author of Barbarians at the Gate

revolución del sentido, La: El poder del liderazgo transcendente Audiobook

revolución del sentido, La: El poder del liderazgo transcendente

Author: Fred Kofman, Reid Hoffman Narrator: Oscar Piñero Release Date: December 2019

El enfoque revolucionario de Fred sobre liderazgo comienza con un impulso poco convencional: el miedo a la muerte. ¿Qué tienen en común la ansiedad con la creación de la eficiencia organizacional? ¡Mucho! Un libro que combina lo práctico con lo existencial, te ayudará a infundir significado y dignidad en tu vida y tu trabajo. Fred muestra un camino hacia el liderazgo trascendente al analizar ejemplos del mundo real de empresas sin dirección y experiencias de servicio al cliente que han resultado terriblemente mal, que abarcan desde la desastrosa administración de Marissa Meyer en Yahoo! al infame representante de servicio al cliente de Comcast que pensaba que estaba haciendo bien su trabajo al negarse obstinadamente a cancelar la cuenta de cable de un suscriptor. Este libro cambiará tu forma de pensar: tu trabajo no es tu trabajo, no es suficiente hacer tu mejor esfuerzo y triunfar. Aprenderás a descubrir tu propio significado y serás capaz de animar a otros a alcanzar un propósito noble. El enfoque de liderazgo de Fred es una mezcla de economía y teoría empresarial, en parte compuesto de comunicación y capacitación en resolución de conflictos, parte consejería familiar, parte meditación y consideración. ¿Qué se puede esperar de un graduado de Berkeley que realiza retiros de silencio que duran un mes? Fred ha enseñado y presentado su investigación en numerosas instituciones académicas, incluyendo Sloan School of Management de MIT, donde fue nombrado Profesor del año, y en la Universidad de Harvard.

Make Noise:  A Creator's Guide to Podcasting and Great Audio Storytelling Audiobook

Make Noise:  A Creator's Guide to Podcasting and Great Audio Storytelling

Author: Eric Nuzum Narrator: George Newbern Release Date: December 2019

Podcasting is the fastest-growing media platform in the world, with currently 650,000 podcasts out there, in 100 languages, and offering over 20 million episodes. And we're only at the beginning. More and more podcasts appear every day, and more and more entrepreneurs, businesses, individuals, and distributors, like Spotify, are getting into this world. One person many people turn to for help launching their podcasts is Eric Nuzum, a veteran of NPR and Audible who's had a hand in creating and launching over 130 podcasts. And the reason is that Nuzum understands the essentials of what makes a podcast work and knows how to help creators shepherd their vision from rough idea to finished product. Make Noise brings all the wisdom, advice, practical information, and big-picture thinking that any individual or business needs to make a successful podcast. He identifies core principles-such as create empathetically, i.e., think like the audience listens, and stay focused on what's unique to you and what you have to say. He helps listeners come up with a "Ten Word Description" that will guide them throughout the creative process and then gets into how-tos-how to develop character, story, voice; how to conduct an effective interview; how to be mindful of the limitations of audio (be more like Hemingway than Faulkner). He provides the rules of storytelling, advice on how to test-drive an idea, and, when it's all ready, how to develop your audience.

Disney's Land Audiobook

Disney's Land

Author: Richard Snow Narrator: Jacques Roy Release Date: December 2019

A propulsive history chronicling the conception and creation of Disneyland, the masterpiece California theme park, as told like never before by popular historian Richard Snow. One day in the early 1950s, Walt Disney stood looking over 240 acres of farmland in Anaheim, California, and imagined building a park where people "could live among Mickey Mouse and Snow White in a world still powered by steam and fire for a day or a week or (if the visitor is slightly mad) forever." Despite his wealth and fame, exactly no one wanted Disney to build such a park. Not his brother Roy, who ran the company's finances; not the bankers; and not his wife, Lillian. Amusement parks at that time, such as Coney Island, were a generally despised business, sagging and sordid remnants of bygone days. Disney was told that he would only be heading toward financial ruin. But Walt persevered, initially financing the park against his own life insurance policy and later with sponsorship from ABC and the sale of thousands and thousands of Davy Crockett coonskin caps. Disney assembled a talented team of engineers, architects, artists, animators, landscapers, and even a retired admiral to transform his ideas into a soaring yet soothing wonderland of a park. The catch was that they had only a year and a day in which to build it. On July 17, 1955, Disneyland opened its gates…and the first day was a disaster. Disney was nearly suicidal with grief that he had failed on a grand scale. But the curious masses kept coming, and the rest is entertainment history. Eight hundred million visitors have flocked to the park since then. In Disney's Land, Richard Snow brilliantly presents the entire spectacular story, a wild ride from vision to realization, and an epic of innovation and error that reflects the uniqueness of the man determined to build "the happiest place on earth" with a watchmaker's precision, an artist's conviction, and the desperate, high-hearted recklessness of a riverboat gambler.

A New History of Management Audiobook

A New History of Management

Author: John Hassard, Michael Rowlinson, Stephen Cummings, Todd Bridgman Narrator: Timothy Andrés Pabon Release Date: December 2019

Existing narratives about how we should organize are built upon, and reinforce, a concept of 'good management' derived from what is assumed to be a fundamental need to increase efficiency. But this assumption is based on a presentist, monocultural, and generally limited view of management's past. A New History of Management disputes these foundations. By reassessing conventional perspectives on past management theories and providing a new critical outline of present-day management, it highlights alternative conceptions of 'good management' focused on ethical aims, sustainability, and alternative views of good practice. From this new historical perspective, existing assumptions can be countered and simplistic views disputed, offering a platform from which graduate students, researchers, and reflective practitioners can develop alternative approaches for managing and organizing in the twenty-first century.
