The fascinating story of a century-old automobile dynasty Fiat is one of the world's largest automakers, but when it made headlines by grabbing control of a bankrupt Chrysler in 2009 it was unknown in the U.S. Fiat's against-all-odds swoop on Chrysler---masterminded by Sergio Marchionne, the Houdini-like manager who saved Fiat from its own near-collapse in 2005 - has made the automaker one of the most unlikely winners of the financial crisis. Mondo Agnelli is a new book that looks at the chain of unpredictable events triggered by the death of Gianni Agnelli in 2003. Gianni, the charismatic, silver-haired power broker and style icon, was the patriarch who had lead the company founded by his grandfather in 1899. But Gianni's own son had committed suicide. Without a mature heir, the dynasty and Fiat were rudderless. Backed by Gianni's closest advisors, his serious, shy, and determined grandson John plucked Marchionne from obscurity. Together, they saved the family company and, inadvertently, positioned Fiat as a global trailblazer when the global storm hit. A classic story of ingenuity and hard work, the book portrays a business dynasty that triumphed over adversity and family tragedy because of its own smarts, sweat, and ability to bend the rules A an engaging tale for those interested in the stories behind the economic crash, the book contains never-before reported material about how Fiat succeeded in making Chrysler profitable where both Daimler AG and Cerberus, its previous owners, had failed. A story for a wide audience, from car buffs, business readers, lovers of Italy, and anyone fascinated by the lifestyle of Europe's most glamorous industrial dynasty, this book tells the tale of how Fiat achieved the seemingly impossible -- turning around an American automotive icon everyone else had given up for dead.

Anna from Hay Cambria Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The feisty illegitimate Anna was a determined girl. At 17 she deserted her foster parents and ran away from home to find the father she never knew. Destitute in the steel-making town of Dowlais she married for security when she was told the lie that her father was dead. However, an industrial town was not for a girl who had been brought up in a middle class home and educated. The humble home and the drudgery it brings from the work of a steel-making husband were not for her. Her feminist leanings soon found sympathy with the suffragette movement and she fled to London to join the cause. For several years she gave her full support often getting into trouble. Arrested for illegal activity she was jailed, force-fed almost to death at Holloway and thrown out before her demise should embarrass the authorities. She was rescued by her aristocratic friend who secured a job for her as a maid with an upper class household. The master`s son attempted to rape her, she fought him off injuring him. Accused of seduction she was sacked and blacklisted. Rescued from suicide by a man she had befriended, he persuaded her to return to Wales. Back in Dowlais she fell in love and married Emlyn, a collier, believing her first husband had died. After having four children the marriage turned sour when her in-laws despised her and the work that comes with a large family wore her down. The marriage was at a crisis point when John, her first husband, turned up and claimed her. Seeing a way out of her despair, she left her children with Emlyn and re-joined John. For a time John`s elevated position as a supervisor in the steelworks gave her the life she had wanted. Tragedy struck when John died in an accident at work leaving her with two children. On his death bed he confessed he had lied to her years ago: her father was alive. She embarked on a two-year campaign to search for her father leaving her children with a neighbour. The search was futile, what`s more John`s relatives had come to claim her children accusing Anna of neglect. Again, under desperate circumstances she married a man older than herself for security. However, he was in ill health and he died several years later leaving Anna destitute and with two young children. Alcohol and self-neglect took over until she ended in a home for the aged where she learned the truth about her father after he had died. She had known him almost all her adult life but never thought that he, an aging evangelist she had befriended, could ever be her father. The story covers many subjects including love, class distinction, war, religion and poverty in a cosmopolitan community. It`s a mixture of heartache and drama but has its moments of comedy as well as apathy, keeping the reader enthralled in the novel till the last page.

Champagne Supernovas Simon & Schuster

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The 1950s had rock 'n' roll and the 60s had the Beats. In the 70s and 80s, it was punk rock and modern art. But for the 1990s, it was all about fashion and Kate Moss, Marc Jacobs, and Alexander McQueen were the trio of rebel geniuses who made it great. Each had an amazing talent and each had demons that would jeopardize that same talent. Collectively, they represented a "moment" in fashion and pop culture that upended everything that had come before it. In the tradition of pop-cultural histories like Girls Like Us and Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, Maureen Callahan explores a particular, pivotal time - the moment when the 1980s gave way to the 1990s, the alternative became the mainstream, and Gen X took over the reins of power in the fashion industry - through the lives of three people who would become both fashion icons and cautionary tales of the era. Callahan interviews insiders and reveals exclusive insights into the biggest dramas surrounding the most celebrated personalities of the decade: why Kate Moss and Johnny Depp broke up, how Marc Jacobs came through the crucible of the AIDS crisis, and what really drove Alexander McQueen to suicide. Champagne Supernovas is the story of that singular time, as exemplified the lives of the three luminaries who forever changed the way we think about fashion and culture.

Marina Bay Sins Marshall Cavendish

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Throughout his career, Singapore's bestselling author Neil Humphreys has successfully mixed biting wit with pitch-black satire to highlight the hypocrisy that lies beneath Asia's sanitised, swinging city. In both fiction and non-fiction, he has shone a light into Singapore's darkest corners to create riveting stories that both captivate the reader and provoke the conscience. Now, in his new novel Marina Bay Sins, he has taken a parang to some of Asia's most sacred cows. Detective Inspector Stanley Low is having a really bad day. His bipolar condition is already ruining another session with his psychiatrist when a sadistic sex murder-suicide at Singapore's most prestigious hotel plunges him back into a sordid underworld he was desperate to leave behind. As the case spirals out of control, Inspector Low encounters self-help celebrity couple Yue Liang and Jimmy Chew. She's a desperate singer willing to do whatever it takes to break the US market. He's a motivational speaker embroiled in a financial crisis. Neither of them can get their story straight. Meanwhile, a South African CEO cannot control his addiction to Asian women, an elusive Indonesian businessman plays pimp for exiled military generals, a government minister is determined to protect foreign 'talent' and an imprisoned loan shark pushes Low to the brink of a nervous breakdown. Fuelled by his uncontrollable mania, Inspector Low goes undercover once more and returns to a world that the Asian metropolis refuses to acknowledge: a world of gambling addiction, crime syndicates, international money launderers, immoral celebrities and corrupt politicians, all living in Asia's cleanest city.
