Groupon’s Biggest Deal Ever is the exclusive, behind-the-scenes account of the incredible rise of discount coupon giant Groupon and the compelling story of its offbeat founder, Andrew Mason, as he created a juggernaut of online commerce and ignited a consumer revolution that is disrupting how people shop all over the world. Love him for saving you 50 percent on last night’s Indian dinner or hate him for cashing in big when he could be losing millions for merchants and investors alike, Mason - Groupon’s thirtysomething founder and CEO - made an incredible gamble when he turned down Google’s $6 billion buyout offer to go it alone. The experts thought he was insane. Groupon was little more than two years old and staffed from top to bottom with twentysomethings. The wild ride couldn’t last, but Mason thought otherwise, and with dreams of a potential IPO that could be massive, he liked his odds. But did he make the right decision, or did he blow a chance to continue to grow ´´the fastest growing company in history”? Is Mason an Internet genius, or is he sitting on another bubble that could burst at any moment? While everyone has an opinion on Groupon, Frank Sennett has written the only inside account. With exclusive access, interviews, and documents that no one outside of the company has seen or been able to report on, Groupon’s Biggest Deal Ever has every twist and turn from start-up to IPO and is the real story of Mason’s audacious gamble and the meteoric rise of Groupon from start-up to $16.7 billion online giant. 1.

California Book Award-winner Greer presents a hilarious and immaculately written story set in L.A., exploring the inevitability of failure. The Failure is a picaresque novel about two guys who conceive and badly execute a plan to rob a Korean check-cashing store in order to finance the prototype for an impossibly ridiculous Internet application. The main character, Guy Forget, is a 20-something drifter with brains, good looks, and absolutely no ambition except to get rich without having to work. His best friend, Billy, is a professional dog walker who ties the dogs to the rear bumper of his run-down car and drives very slowly. Along the way we meet, among others, Guy´s Midwestern parents; his theoretical-physicist brother; his girlfriend, Violet McKnight; and his secret nemesis, Sven Transvoort, who hates Guy with unusual passion for reasons that are not immediately clear. While the story of The Failure is fairly straightforward, the manner of its telling is anything but; it begins at the end, and proceeds in similarly nonlinear fashion to a conclusion that will surprise either nobody or everybody, depending on who has been paying attention. Using elements of pop culture, tech jargon, and noirish satire, the book attempts to answer the question not enough people ask themselves on a regular basis: Am I a failure? 1. Language: English.

Logan is the first person you’d call for two-fisted detective action! And three times Logan means three times the adventure. 1930s Hollywood wasn’t just moving picture stars and backlots. It was also a petri dish crawling with crime. Power breeding corruption, wealth motivating robbery, and revenge leading to murder. In these three tales, private investigator Tom Logan uses his brains, fists, and caustic wit, first to take on a mysterious organization called ´´The Syndicate´´, which is usurping territory from other mobs and has placed a target on him, and the female witness he’s protecting. In a second story, Tom rescues a fair maiden from the clutches of a racketeer running a gambling boat. She becomes the ´´marker´´ Logan has to prevent him from cashing in. And finally, Tom discovers that revenge is anything but sweet. A repeat (serial) murderer - labeled ´´The Full Moon Killer´´ by the press - is stalking The City of Angels. Unfortunately, Logan’s name is on this character’s list. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Romick. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/109818/bk_acx0_109818_sample.mp3.

Business of Share Trading:From Starting Out to Cashing in with Trading Leon Wilson
The time was the 1980s. The place was Wall Street. The game was called Liar´s Poker. Michael Lewis was fresh out of Princeton and the London School of Economics when he landed a job at Salomon Brothers, one of Wall Street´s premier investment firms. During the next three years, Lewis rose from callow trainee to bond salesman, raking in millions for the firm and cashing in on a modern-day gold rush. This is a summary of Michael Lewis´ book Liar´s Poker: Rising Through the Wreckage on Wall Street. It is the culmination of those heady, frenzied years - a behind-the-scenes look at a unique and turbulent time in American business. From the frat-boy camaraderie of the 41st-floor trading room to the killer instinct that made ambitious young men gamble everything on a high-stakes game of bluffing and deception, here is Michael Lewis´ knowing and hilarious insider´s account of an unprecedented era of greed, gluttony, and outrageous fortune.
