The Man Who Knew: The Life and Times of Alan Gr...

The definitive biography of the most important economic statesman of our time. Sebastian Mallaby's magisterial biography of Alan Greenspan, the product of over five years of research based on untrammeled access to his subject and his closest professional and personal intimates, brings into vivid focus the mysterious point where the government and the economy meet. To understand Greenspan's story is to see the economic and political landscape of the last 30 years - and the presidency, from Reagan to George W. Bush - in a whole new light. As the most influential economic statesman of his age, Greenspan spent a lifetime grappling with a momentous shift: the transformation of finance from the fixed and regulated system of the post-war era to the free-for-all of the past quarter century. The story of Greenspan is also the story of the making of modern finance, for good and for ill. Greenspan's life is a quintessential American success story: raised by a single mother in the Jewish émigré community of Washington Heights, he was a math prodigy who found a niche as a stats-crunching consultant. A master at explaining the economic weather to captains of industry, he translated that skill into advising Richard Nixon in his 1968 campaign. This led to a perch on the White House Council of Economic Advisers, and then to a dazzling array of business and government roles, from which the path to the Fed was relatively clear. A fire-breathing libertarian and disciple of Ayn Rand in his youth who once called the Fed's creation a historic mistake, Mallaby shows how Greenspan reinvented himself as a pragmatist once in power. In his analysis, and in his core mission of keeping inflation in check, he was a maestro indeed, and hailed as such. At his retirement in 2006, he was lauded as the age's necessary man, the veritable God in the machine, the global economy's avatar. His memoirs sold for record sums to publishers around the world. But then came 2008. Mallab 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan Woren. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/peng/002952/bk_peng_002952_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

The Einstein of Money: The Life and Timeless Fi...

Even in 2012, Ben Graham is still a hero to me - Warren Buffett (from the author's interview with Buffett for The Einstein of Money) Warren Buffett has repeatedly acknowledged Benjamin Graham, a man he personally studied and worked under, as the primary influence on his investment approach. Indeed, there is a direct line between the record-shattering investing performance of Buffett (and other value investors) and Graham's life. In six books and dozens of papers, Graham—widely known as the "Dean of Wall Street"—left an extensive account of an investing system that, as Buffett can attest to, actually works! In The Einstein of Money, author and business consultant Joe Carlen educates the listener on Graham's most essential wealth-creation concepts (as selected by Buffett himself), while telling the colorful story of Graham's amazing business career and his multifaceted personal life. As the author shows, Graham was a brilliant innovator in many areas—from devising a new currency to writing a Broadway play. His complex personality combined impeccable professional ethics with a checkered, even wild, romantic life. Carlen's biography distills the best from Graham's extensive published works (including his candid memoirs, released in 1996) and draws from the author's interviews with Warren Buffett, Charles Brandes, other top US and global value investors, Graham's surviving children and friends, and select finance professors and authors. In this manner, The Einstein of Money weaves Graham's transformational ideas into the narrative of a momentous life and legacy. Warren Buffett once said, "No one ever became poor by reading Graham." By the same token, no one will ever become poor, bored, or uninspired by listening to Carlen's lively, informative biography of Benjamin Graham and his time-tested techniques for generating wealth. 1.

But then came 2008. Mallaby's story lands with both feet on the great crash which did so much to damage Alan Greenspan's reputation. Mallaby argues that the conventional wisdom is off base: Greenspan wasn't a naïve ideologue who believed greater regulation was unnecessary. He had pressed for greater regulation of some key areas of finance over the years, and had gotten nowhere. To argue that he didn't know the risks in irrational markets is to miss the point. He knew more than almost anyone; the question is why he didn't act, and whether anyone else could or would have. A close reading of Greenspan's life provides fascinating answers to these questions, answers whose lessons we would do well to heed. Because perhaps Mallaby's greatest lesson is that economic statesmanship, like political statesmanship, is the art of the possible. The Man Who Knew is a searching reckoning with what exactly comprised the art, and the possible, in the career of Alan Greenspan.

The Heart of Leadership: Becoming a Leader Peop...

“The most important leadership tool you have is not your education, your experience, or your know-how. It’s your heart. In this book, Mark provides a clear prescription for using yours to become the kind of leader people want to follow.” —Michael Hyatt, New York Times bestselling author and former CEO, Thomas Nelson Inc. “Mark once again demonstrates the power of a simple story well told. The Heart of Leadership will serve leaders around the world for decades to come.” —Dr. Henry Cloud, leadership consultant, psychologist, and bestselling author of Boundaries and Necessary Endings “ The Heart of Leadership is a delightfully surprising read. Mark Miller’s wisdom shines in his ability to convey profound truths simply and clearly. This book propels leadership beyond strategies and techniques to its most authentic form—who you are.” —Dan Rockwell, author and owner of the Leadership Freak blog, consultant, and pastor “Mark Miller has crafted a masterwork. Too many books on leadership are about selfishly getting ahead. This book addresses the leader’s heart. By addressing the heart, you do get ahead, but it’s a more satisfying journey.” —Nancy Duarte, author of Resonate and CEO, Duarte Designs “This book will help you reach your leadership potential, espousing good principles that most learn only through the school of hard knocks—and many never learn at all.” —Ron Wallace, former President, UPS International “Mark Miller has done it again! Another outstanding book—this time on the most important aspect of leadership: who you are as a leader. If you focus only on skills, you are ignoring 90 percent of what makes a great leader. —Jesse Lyn Stoner, coauthor of the international bestseller Full Steam Ahead! “ The Heart of Leadership addresses the primary stumbling block for leaders – themselves!   If you want to improve how you lead others, you must first improve how you lead yourself. This great little book shows you how. —Daniel S. Harkavy, CEO and Executive Coach, Building Champions, Inc. ' The Heart of Leadership extends and deepens the bestselling leadership models pioneered by Mark Miller.  This book is clear, compelling, and of real practical value. Keep it on hand  -- a small investment of time will yield a lifetime of dividends, in life as well as career.  —Jeff Rosensweig, Associate Professor of International Business and Finance and Director of Emory University’s Goizueta Business School and Global Perspectives Program ‘There's a difference between potential leaders with raw talent and great leaders with real influence. Mark's book reveals the foundational difference -- it's all about leadership character.” —Tony Morgan, author, Chief Strategic Officer and founder of TonyMorganLive.com “Mark Miller’s The Heart of Leadership immediately creates a place for personal discovery. As I read each page, I was no longer thinking of  “Blake” the main character, but myself. Blake’s journey of discovery became my own. This is about the “life” of leadership and how it reaches within and without having profound and long-lasting impact. It’s about being unselfishly driven and highly motivated. It is about how others within the workplace and within our lives benefit from our personal resolve to lead from the perspective that others matter.” —Clifton L. Taulbert, Author of Eight Habits of the Heart and President, The Freemount Corporation/Building Community Institute “There are so many buzzwords in business that claim to be the answer to all leadership woes. The truth is that leadership is all about the people, and to have success with people, read The Heart of Leadership, and watch your leadership soar to a whole new level.” —Todd Nielsen, author and COO
