Discover the inspiring, true story behind the film, Lion. This is the heart breaking and original tale of the lost little boy who found his way home twenty-five years later. ----------------------------------- As a five-year old in India, I got lost on a train. Twenty-five years later, I crossed the world to find my way back home. Five-year-old Saroo lived in a poor village in India, in a one-room hut with his mother and three siblings... until the day he boarded a train alone and got lost. For twenty-five years. This is the story of what happened to Saroo in those twenty-five years. How he ended up on the streets of Calcutta. And survived. How he then ended up in Tasmania, living the life of an upper-middle-class Aussie. And how, at thirty years old, with some dogged determination, a heap of good luck and the power of Google Earth, he found his way back home. Lion is a triumphant true story of survival against all odds and a shining example of the extraordinary feats we can achieve when hope endures. ----------------------------------- ´Amazing stuff´ The New York Post ´So incredible that sometimes it reads like a work of fiction´ Winnipeg Free Press (Canada) ´A remarkable story´ Sydney Morning Herald Review ´I literally could not put this book down.

The inside story of Netflix´s incredible rise and uncertain future as master of the video universe Netflix has come a long way since 1997, when Marc Randolph and Reed Hastings decided to start an online DVD store before most people owned a DVD player. Yet its long-term success?or even survival?is still far from guaranteed. Journalist Gina Keating recounts the fast-paced drama of the company´s turbulent rise to the top and its attempt to invent two new kinds of business. First it engaged in a grueling war against videostore behemoth Blockbuster, transforming movie rental forever. Then it jumped into an even bigger battle for online video streaming against Google, Hulu, Amazon, and the big cable companies. Drawing on extensive interviews and her years covering Netflix as a reporter, Keating makes this tale as absorbing as it is important.
The world´s most populous nation and soon-to-be largest economy is rapidly turning into the planet´s most efficient assassin. Unscrupulous Chinese entrepreneurs are flooding world markets with lethal products. China´s perverse form of capitalism combines illegal mercantilist and protectionist weapons to pick off American industries, job by job. China´s emboldened military is racing towards head-on confrontation with the U.S. Meanwhile, America´s executives, politicians, and even academics remain silent about the looming threat. Now, best-selling author and noted economist Peter Navarro meticulously exposes every form of ´´Death by China,´´ drawing on the latest trends and events to show a relationship spiraling out of control. Navarro reveals: How thousands of Chinese cyber dissidents are being imprisoned in ´´Google Gulags´´; how Chinese hackers are escalating coordinated cyberattacks on U.S. defense and America´s key businesses; how China´s undervalued currency is damaging the U.S., Europe, and the global recovery; why American companies are discovering that the risks of operating in China are even worse than they imagined; how China is promoting nuclear proliferation in its pursuit of oil; and how the media distorts the China story--including a ´´Hall of Shame´´ of America´s worst China apologists. This book doesn´t just catalogue China´s abuses: It presents a call to action and a survival guide for a critical juncture in America´s history--and the world´s.
