"The best modern sci-fi since Wool by Hugh Howey." - (Abbey Reads) The Star Marque, led by a cyborg captain, and crewed by humans, rises in the military ranks of a superhuman-dominated society. But when the captain turns to assassinations and blackmail, the first mate attempts to save the lives of the crew before they're caught and executed.
Celebrity personalities, who reign over much of our cultural landscape, owe their fame not to deeds but the ability to project a distinct personal image, an icon of the self. Author Rhonda Garelick locates a prototype of the star personality in the dandies and aesthete literary figures of the 19th century, such as Beau Brummel and Oscar Wilde, comparing them with Prince, Madonna, Jackie O. and other dandy-like figures of today. 19 photos.

After winning the presidency by a razor-thin victory on November 8, 1960, over Richard Nixon, Dwight D. Eisenhower’s former vice president, John F. Kennedy became the thirty-fifth president of the United States. But beneath the stately veneers of both Ike and JFK, there was a complex and consequential rivalry. In Rising Star, Setting Sun, John T. Shaw focuses on the intense ten-week transition between JFK’s electoral victory and his inauguration on January 20, 1961. In just over two months, America would transition into a new age, and nowhere was it more marked that in the generational and personal difference between these two men and their dueling visions for the country they led. The former general espoused frugality, prudence, and stewardship. The young political wu¨nderkid embodied dramatic themes and sweeping social change. Extensively researched and eloquently written, Shaw paints a vivid picture of what Time called a “turning point in the twentieth century” as Americans today find themselves poised on the cusp of another watershed moment in our nation’s history.
For the want-to-be entrepreneur thinking about taking the leap, the boot-strapped entrepreneur trying to energize a business three or four years in, and the venture-backed entrepreneur trying to scale, Why Startups Fail shows you the key mistakes new ventures make—and how to avoid them. Nearly everyone has an idea for a product they could build or a company they could start. But eight out of 10 new businesses fail within the first three years. Even only one in ten venture-backed startups succeeds, and venture capitalists turn down some 99% of the business plans they see. The odds appear to be stacked against you! But entrepreneurs often make the same avoidable mistakes over and over. Why Startups Fail can help you beat the odds and avoid the pitfalls and traps that lead to early startup death. It’s easy to point to successes like Apple, Google, and Facebook. But the biggest lessons can come from failure. What decisions were made, and why? What would the founders have done differently? How did one company become a billion-dollar success while another—with a better product and in the same market—fail? Drawing on personal experience as well as the wisdom of the Silicon Valley startup community, serial entrepreneur, venture capitalist, and blogger Dave Feinleib analyzes companies that have come and gone. In short, powerful chapters, he reveals the keys to successful entrepreneurship: Excellent product/market fit, passion, superb execution, the ability to pivot, stellar team, good funding, and wise spending. In Why Startups Fail, you’ll learn from the mistakes Feinleib has seen made over and over and find out how to position your startup for success. Why Startups Fail: Shows venture-backed startups and boot-strappers alike how to succeed where others fail. Is equally valuable for companies still on the drawing board as well as young firms taking their first steps. Takes you through the key decisions and pitfalls that caused startups to fail and what you can learn from their failures. Covers the critical elements of entrepreneurial success.
These seventeen essays make up a history of the American film industry. Because film-making entails a special blend of economic and artistic endeavor, Kindem has chosen contributions from experts in a variety of fields—business, law, mass communications, and cinema studies. The organization of this anthology is both chronological and topical. The first three parts of the book basically follow the history of the film industry’s marketing strategies, structural changes, and product innovations: from exhibition in Kinetoscope arcades to film “acts” in vaudeville, Nickelodeons, and movie palaces; from states’ rights marketing schemes to block booking and chain-store exhibition strategies; from a production and distribution monopoly based on the pooling of major patents to an oligopoly of production, distribution, and exhibition firms; and from the rise of feature films, the star system, and the studio system to Hollywood’s conversions to sound and color. The fourth through sixth parts examine film regulation and censorship, film’s interaction with television, and America’s role in the international film industry. The diversity of methods and perspectives in this anthology are representative of the field, suggesting that the history of the American film industry is really a collection of histories, not a monolithic, single-strand chronology of events.
