Random House presents the audiobook edition of Merchants of Truth by Jill Abramson. Merchants of Truth by Jill Abramson, former editor of The New York Times, is the gripping and definitive in-the-room account of the revolution that has swept the news industry over the last decade and reshaped our world. Drawing on revelatory access, Abramson takes us behind the scenes at four media titans during the most volatile years in news history. Two are maverick upstarts: BuzzFeed, the brain-child of virtuoso clickbait scientist Jonah Perretti, and Vice, led by the booze-fuelled anarcho-hipster Shane Smith. Their viral technology and disregard for the long-established standards of news journalism allow them to build game-changing billion-dollar businesses out of the millennial taste for puppies and nudity. The two others are among the world’s most venerable news institutions: The New York Times, owned and run for generations by the Sulzberger dynasty, and The Washington Post, also family-owned but soon to be bought by the world’s richest merchant of all, Jeff Bezos. Here Abramson reveals firsthand the seismic clashes that take place in the boardrooms and newsrooms as they are forced to choose between their cherished principles - objectivity and impartiality - and survival in a world where online advertising via Facebook and Google seems the only life-raft.We are with the deal-making tycoons, thrusting reporters and hard-bitten editors, the egomaniacs, bullshitters, provocateurs and bullies, as some surf and others drown in the breaking wave of change. And we watch as the survivors confront the horrifying cost of their success: sexual scandal, fake news, the election of President Trump, the shaking of democracy.Exposing the people and decisions that brought us to now, Merchants of Truth is a major audiobook that breaks the ultimate news story of our times./ 1.

Columnist for The Times and best-selling author of Bounce: The myth of talent and the power of practice, Matthew Syed argues that the key to success is a positive attitude to failure. What links the Mercedes Formula One team with Google? What links Dave Braisford´s Team Sky and the aviation industry? What is the connection between the inventor James Dyson and the footballer David Beckham? They are all Black Box Thinkers. Whether developing a new product, honing a core skill or just trying to get a critical decision right, Black Box Thinkers aren´t afraid to face up to mistakes. In fact they see failure as the very best way to learn. Rather than denying their mistakes, blaming others or attempting to spin their way out of trouble, these institutions and individuals interrogate errors as part of their future strategy for success. How many of us, hand on heart, can say that we have such a healthy relationship with failure? Learning from failure has the status of a cliché, but this book reveals the astonishing story behind the most powerful method of learning known to mankind and reveals the arsenal of techniques wielded by some of the world´s most innovative organizations. Their lessons can be applied across every field - from sport to education, from business to health. Using gripping case studies, exclusive interviews and really practical takeaways, Matthew Syed - the award-winning journalist and best-selling author of Bounce - explains how to turn failure into success and shows us how we can all become better Black Box Thinkers. 1.

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident. (Arthur Schopenhauer)The Ponzi Factor is the most comprehensive research ever compiled on the negative-sum nature of capital gains (non-dividend stocks). This means, as a whole, ALL investors will lose money from buying and selling stocks. Most people don’t realize that profits from buying and selling stocks come from other investors who are also buying and selling stocks. When one investor buys low and sells high, another investor is also buying high and needs to sell for even higher.Companies like Google, Telsa, Facebook never pay their investors. Their investors’ profits are dependent on the inflow of money from new investors, which by definition, is how a Ponzi scheme works. This book is not for everyone. If you are a finance junkie who wants to rationalize why companies don’t have to pay their investors and believe a system that shuffles money between investor can magically create more money than people contribute, then this book is not for you. On the other hand, if you understand that money doesn’t grow on trees and investors invest because they want money, not value, then you will learn something you will never forget: the simple truth about what makes a stock price move and the mechanics of how the stock market really works. A stock without dividends is a Ponzi asset. It’s not how ownership instruments were designed to work historically or logically. True ideas will never disappear. It can be covered, and we can get distracted, but the truth never goes away and becomes self-evident over time. The Ponzi Factor is not a perspective or an opinion. It is a proof that is based on definition, logic, and it is supported by observable facts and history. This is not a story that will disappear after another market crash. It is an idea that will remain re 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Pratt. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/109885/bk_acx0_109885_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Girl gangs reigning terror at Facebook, narcissistic overlords at Google...this is the backdrop of Lean Out, which takes listeners on the journey of Marissa Orr, a single mom of three trying to find success in her 15-year career at the world’s top tech giants. Orr delivers an ambitious attempt to answer the critical question: What have we gotten wrong about women at work? ´´This book is a must-read for insights on the impact that reversing systemic gender biases can have on creating more diverse, healthier workplaces for both women and men.” (Joanne Harrell, Senior Director, USA Citizenship, Microsoft) ´´This book will make you think differently about what it will take for women to succeed at the highest levels in American business.” (Rishad Tobaccowala, Chief Growth Officer, Publicis Groupe)Lean Out offers a new and refreshingly candid perspective on what it’s really like for today’s corporate underdogs. Based on both in-depth research and personal experiences, Orr punctures a gaping hole in today’s feminist rhetoric and sews it back up with compelling new arguments for the reasons more women don’t make it to the top and how companies can better incentivize women by actually listening to what they have to say and by rewarding the traits that make them successful. In Lean Out, Orr uncovers:Why our pursuit to close the gender gap has come at the expense of female well-being.The need to redefine success and change the way corporations choose their leaders.The way most career advice books targeting professional women seek to change their behavior rather than the system.Why modern feminism has failed to make any progress on its goals for equality.More than 50 years since the passage of the Equal Pay Act, the wage gap still hovers at 80 percent, and only five percent of CEOs in the Fortune 500 are women. Today, rising up the ranks in many companies st 1. Language: English. Narrator: Misty Wells. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tnwd/001533/bk_tnwd_001533_sample.mp3.

Please Note: This is a key takeaways and analysis of the book and not the original book. Start Publishing Notes´ Summary, Analysis, and Review of Summary, Analysis, and Review of Seth Stephens-Davidowitz´s Everybody Lies: Big Data, New Data, and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are includes a summary of the book, review, analysis and key takeaways, and detailed ´´About the Author´´ section. In Everybody Lies: Big Data, New Data, and What the Internet Can Tell Us About Who We Really Are, Seth Stephens-Davidowitz cleverly manipulates Big Data to explore the dark underside of American consciousness. Using powerful new methodologies, the author analyzes anonymous Google searches across a wide range of subjects about which people tend to be secretive. From Internet pornography to medical diagnoses, Stephens-Davidowitz reveals startling truths about people´s desires, failures and fears. Published in 2017, the book begins with a memory that´s fresh for listeners: the unexpected ascension of Donald Trump to the US presidency. While pundits, including data journalists like Nate Silver, didn´t see it coming, the clues were planted in Big Data. Stephens-Davidowitz, who has been working with giant data sets of search-related data on sites like Facebook, Stormfront, Wikipedia, PornHub, and especially Google over the last decade or so, saw some intimation in the ´´tea leaves´´. Before the 2016 election, he had already uncovered troubling data about how flagrant racism had negatively impacted Obama´s elections, though of course the results were in the politician´s favor. Stephens-Davidowitz´s work in this area was rejected by a number of the journals at the time because so many pundits believed in a post-racial America, but his findings anticipated the white nationalism that propelled Trump into office. 1.
