Becoming Steve Jobs: The Evolution of a Reckless Upstart into a Visionary Leaderby Brent Schlender (Author), Rick Tetzeli (Author), George Newbern
There have been many books - on a large and small scale - about Steve
Jobs, one of the most famous CEOs in history. But this book is
different from all the others.
Becoming Steve Jobs takes
on and breaks down the existing myth and stereotypes about Steve Jobs.
The conventional, one-dimensional view of Jobs is that he was half
genius, half jerk from youth, an irascible and selfish leader who
slighted friends and family alike. Becoming Steve Jobs answers
the central question about the life and career of the Apple cofounder
and CEO: How did a young man so reckless and arrogant that he was exiled
from the company he founded become the most effective visionary
business leader of our time, ultimately transforming the daily lives of
billions of people?
Drawing on incredible and sometimes exclusive
access, Schlender and Tetzeli tell a different story of a real human
being who wrestled with his failings and learned to maximize his
strengths over time. Their rich, compelling narrative is filled with
stories never told before from the people who knew Jobs best and who
decided to open up to the authors, including his family, former inner
circle executives, and top people at Apple, Pixar, and Disney. In
addition Brent knew Jobs personally for 25 years and drew upon his many
interviews with him, on and off the record, in writing the book. He and
Rick humanize the man and explain, rather than simply describe, his
behavior. Along the way the book provides rich context about the
technology revolution we all have lived through and the ways in which
Jobs changed our world.
Schlender and Tetzeli make clear that
Jobs' astounding success at Apple was far more complicated than simply
picking the right products: he became more patient, he learned to trust
his inner circle, and he discovered the importance of growing the
company incrementally rather than only shooting for dazzling,

Trades About To Happens : A Modern Adaptation Of The Wyckoff Method
While Richard Wyckoff's search to develop a "trained judgment" for
trading began decades ago, his method—which has been modified to account
for changes in market conditions, but remains true to his original
work—continues to draw great interest from traders around the world.
Author David Weis is a trader and market analyst with nearly forty years
of experience in this field. A recognized authority on the trading
methods of Richard Wyckoff, he understands how to utilize the principles
behind Wyckoff's work and make effective trades with them. And now,
with Trades About to Happen, he skillfully reveals how to adapt
Wyckoff's techniques to excel in today's volatile markets.
Engaging and accessible, this reliable resource looks at Wyckoff's
approach from a more modern perspective and shows how you can logically
interpret bar charts and wave charts to find trades about to happen. By
studying the chart examples in this book, you'll gain tremendous insight
into reading what markets are saying about themselves and develop the
ability to locate turning points of different degrees. Page by page,
Weis facilitates your learning by:
Along the way, Weis introduces the adaptations he has made to Wyckoff's
original tape-reading tools—which are better suited for the enormous
volatility of today's stock and futures markets—and can be applied to
intraday and daily price movement.
When it comes to Wyckoff analysis, it's easy to forget that the world of
chart reading is not black or white, but gray. One has to have an open
mind rather than a fixed, pre-conceived ideal. Trades About to Happen
will help you achieve this goal as you discover how to develop the feel
and intuition of a successful trader and become better equipped at
adapting the Wyckoff method to today's dynamic markets.

By Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg
Google Executive Chairman and ex-CEO Eric Schmidt and former SVP of
Products Jonathan Rosenberg came to Google over a decade ago as proven
technology executives. At the time, the company was already well-known
for doing things differently, reflecting the visionary--and frequently
contrarian--principles of founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. If Eric
and Jonathan were going to succeed, they realized they would have to
relearn everything they thought they knew about management and business.
Today, Google is a global icon that regularly pushes the
boundaries of innovation in a variety of fields. HOW GOOGLE WORKS is an
entertaining, page-turning primer containing lessons that Eric and
Jonathan learned as they helped build the company. The authors explain
how technology has shifted the balance of power from companies to
consumers, and that the only way to succeed in this ever-changing
landscape is to create superior products and attract a new breed of
multifaceted employees whom Eric and Jonathan dub "smart creatives."
Covering topics including corporate culture, strategy, talent,
decision-making, communication, innovation, and dealing with disruption,
the authors illustrate management maxims ("Consensus requires
dissension," "Exile knaves but fight for divas," "Think 10X, not 10%")
with numerous insider anecdotes from Google's history, many of which are
shared here for the first time.In an era when everything is
speeding up, the best way for businesses to succeed is to attract
smart-creative people and give them an environment where they can thrive
at scale. HOW GOOGLE WORKS explains how to do just that.

"If you could only ever buy one book on probability, this would be the one!
Feller's elegant and lateral approach to the essential elements of
probability theory and their application to many diverse and apparently
unrelated contexts is head-noddingly inspiring.
Working your way through all the exercises in the book would be an
excellent retirment diversion sure to stave off the onset of dementia."

Trading Price Action Reversals : Al Brooks
detailed guide to profiting from trend reversals using the technical analysis of price action
The key to being a successful trader is finding a system that works and
sticking with it. Author Al Brooks has done just that. By simplifying
his trading system and trading only 5-minute price charts he's found a
way to capture profits regardless of market direction or economic
climate. His first book, Reading Price Charts Bar by Bar, offered an
informative examination of his system, but it didn't allow him to get
into the real nuts and bolts of the approach. Now, with this new series
of books, Brooks takes you step by step through the entire process.
By breaking down his trading system into its simplest pieces:
institutional piggybacking or trend trading, trading ranges, and
transitions or reversals (the focus of this book), this three book
series offers access to Brooks' successful methodology. Trading Price
Action Reversals reveals the various types of reversals found in today's
markets and then takes the time to discuss the specific characteristics
of these reversals, so that you can use them in your everyday trading
endeavors. While price action analysis works on all time frames, there
are different techniques that you can use in trading intraday, daily,
weekly and monthly charts. This, among many other issues, is also
addressed throughout these pages.
Other books in the series include Trading Price Action Trends and Trading Price Action Trading Ranges
If you're looking to make the most of your time in today's markets the
trading insights found in Trading Price Action Reversals will help you
achieve this goal.

Technical Analysis of Stock Trends
2011 Reprint of 1958 Fourth Edition. Full facsimile of the original
edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. In 1948
Robert D. Edwards and John Magee published "Technical Analysis of Stock
Trends" which is widely considered to be one of the seminal works of the
discipline. It is exclusively concerned with trend analysis and chart
patterns and remains in use to the present. As is obvious, early
technical analysis was almost exclusively the analysis of charts,
because the processing power of computers was not available for
statistical analysis. "Technical analysis" is a financial term used to
denote a security analysis discipline for forecasting the direction of
prices through the study of past market data, primarily price and
volume. Behavioral economics and quantitative analysis incorporate
technical analysis, which being an aspect of active management stands in
contradiction to much of modern portfolio theory.
