Описание: At the same time Adolf Hitler was attempting to take over the western world, his armies were methodically seeking and hoarding the finest art treasures in Europe.
The Fuehrer had begun cataloguing the art he planned to collect as well as the art he would destroy: "degenerate" works he despised. In a race against time, behind enemy lines, often unarmed, a special force of American and British museum directors, curators, art historians, and others, called the Momuments Men, risked their lives scouring Europe to prevent the destruction of thousands of years of culture.
Focusing on the eleven-month period between D-Day and V-E Day, this fascinating account follows six Monuments Men and their impossible mission to save the world's great art from the Nazis.

Описание: Finalist for the 2016 Los Angeles Times Book Prize, the 2016 J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize, and the 2015 Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year One of Billboard's 100 Greatest Music Books of All Time A New York Times Editors' Choice ONE OF THE YEAR'S BEST BOOKS: The Washington Post - The Financial Times- Slate - The Atlantic - Time - Forbes " How Music Got Free] has the clear writing and brisk reportorial acumen of a Michael Lewis book."--Dwight Garner, The New York Times What happens when an entire generation commits the same crime? How Music Got Free is a riveting story of obsession, music, crime, and money, featuring visionaries and criminals, moguls and tech-savvy teenagers. It's about the greatest pirate in history, the most powerful executive in the music business, a revolutionary invention and an illegal website four times the size of the iTunes Music Store. Journalist Stephen Witt traces the secret history of digital music piracy, from the German audio engineers who invented the mp3, to a North Carolina compact-disc manufacturing plant where factory worker Dell Glover leaked nearly two thousand albums over the course of a decade, to the high-rises of midtown Manhattan where music executive Doug Morris cornered the global market on rap, and, finally, into the darkest recesses of the Internet. Through these interwoven narratives, Witt has written a thrilling book that depicts the moment in history when ordinary life became forever entwined with the world online--when, suddenly, all the music ever recorded was available for free. In the page-turning tradition of writers like Michael Lewis and Lawrence Wright, Witt's deeply reported first book introduces the unforgettable characters--inventors, executives, factory workers, and smugglers--who revolutionized an entire artform, and reveals for the first time the secret underworld of media pirates that transformed our digital lives. An irresistible never-before-told story of greed, cunning, genius, and deceit, How Music Got Free isn't just a story of the music industry--it's a must-read history of the Internet itself.

Описание: If you are a leader - or aspiring to be one - then tools like PowerPoint detract, not add, to how your performance will be received. In fact, leadership and the

Your reputation and the success of your business depend on being able to speak to a variety of audiences confidently and persuasively. Through
contemporary and historical examples, Chris provides practical advice on how his readers can take their game to another level by understanding ideas such as: * You are the message -
it's your experience, vision and character that audiences want * As a leader, you have only three speeches: to identify, to influence and to inspire * Speak less to say more. Fewer,
shorter speeches have greater impact * Dare to be different.
Leaders don't play by the rules; they take risks

Описание: Think about the most powerful speech you've ever heard a leader give. What made that speech-and that speaker-memorable was likely a mix of authenticity, stage presence, masterful delivery, and-above all-an inspirational message. Nobody ever walked out of a great speech saying, "I loved the way she used PowerPoint." Yet, all too often, speakers rely on tools like it to carry them through a presentation. Real leaders speak to make a difference, to promote a vision, to change the way people think and feel and act. Their ability to lead goes hand in hand with their ability to get their message across, no matter what size audience they're addressing. Drawing on his years of experience in coaching executives, Christopher Witt shows not just how to make a speech but why and when you should make one. His practical advice on how to take your game to the next level includes: - You are the message. Who you are-your character, experience, values-shapes the message your listeners hear. - Content is king. Delivery is important, but it is only the helpful-or unhelpful-servant of your message. So build each speech around one, and only one, "Big Idea." - A confused mind always says no. When you want your listeners to say yes, you've got to make them understand what you want them to do and why they should care. - Dare to do the unexpected. Leaders know the rules, and they know when, why, and how to break them. In chapters that can be read in five minutes or less and in a book that can be gone through in one sitting, Witt shows you how to become more confident, more commanding, more compelling speakers. But this isn't just a book about speaking. It's about leadership and about how people-CEOs and PTA presidents, small business owners and sales reps, middle managers and techno geeks-can present themselves and their ideas with greater impact.
